"..Environmental groups allege that, before they won protection for the area in 2001, off-roaders destroyed the canyon by cutting trees, dumping boulders in the water and using winches to drag their Jeeps up the waterfalls. They are seeking to intervene in the off-roaders' lawsuit.
Since 2001, the canyon has regenerated, with new vegetation attracting wildlife.
"It's almost unbelievable what's up there. It's precious, it's pristine," said Tom Budlong, an activist who regularly hikes the canyon about 200 miles northeast of his Los Angeles home. "I shudder to think of the extreme four-wheelers getting back into the canyon and making a road where there is now no road.".."
So it was destroyed and now it is pristine. The Greens are Shrill, liars, and a tremendous drag on the economy.
Well You are right I guess the old raods the four wheelers made just dissappeared and the trees they cut must be some fast frowing bad boys to have grown that much in 5 years.
Its too bad some people dont realise that these places can be shared with a little planning and proper regulation.
