    "GMUG" stands for the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests. Combined, they encompass some 2.9 million acres of National Forest lands in Central and Western Colorado.

These management plans provide broad guidance on what activities may or may not occur on these lands. The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC), a national recreation advocacy group that champions recreational access and responsible use of public and private lands, is growing increasingly concerned about the influence several anti-access groups...

Two transport trucks left before dawn, as a 29-vehicle convoy passed through the southernmost limit of the Al Rashid district, and made its way along streets with names like Toyota, Chicken, and Bulls that the U.S. Army has named to help guide American soldiers through the often sign-less streets they have become so familiar with over...
