And homeland security cameras to keep the world safe......good news is ex pass will open the gates for those with permits to enter ......

I think some people become over preoccupied with the ecological value of a standing pine tree in the barrens. Thinning of some tracks of land will do the ecosystem lots of good especially with the abscence of fire. Pine trees grow back quick. I think the pine beetles will eventually balance out and a predator species will step up and bring things back. I think we should burn some of these tracks too. The dying pine trees are great for the ecosytem too, ashame they are removing them.
