    I would take this a all things beautiful e.g. wolves, grizzlies and other wildlife other would say “Well everything but that”. Pinedale is bldg a 17 million dollar pool from oil money. OK not directly oil money. This town of about 1500 people cenus, just happen to have that kind of money sitting around in their budget and have nothing else (book,head start,ect….). This is an area that is full of greed at all cost, “bring on the wells (dont froget the greenbacks)!

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
