    The Outdoor Industry Association plans to ask President Obama to declare a Greater Canyonlands National Monument. Here's the press release teaser:

    It will be interesting to see what comes of this. I'm all for keeping pillaging the land out of this area.

    I just read through the article on paper. I wish it listed a few more specifics, what kind of drilling there is going to be, what jeep use if "rampant" how long the supplies they are drilling/mining will last etc.

    Either way, I'm for it, but in order to convince the public that it's a good idea, we need to be able to explain the long term growth from the outdoor visiters, vs the short term growth found by drilling/mining.
