The KTR has taken on an interesting twist, or at least potentially has. Go here to read more about it. The prospect of BLM agents trying to pull people off the trail, or chase down someone is humorous, and I really don’t think it will come to anything like that. But I can see them showing up to harass and discourage people, which makes no sense in my mind.
The danger is that anything that happens tonight could set a precedence for any future ride that fits in the KT category. The GL, the CT, the GD and more. What does the future hold for these rides? I think anyone who wants to set up a new route and/or participate in one of these rides will have to start being more subtle about the details.
I was going to write more about this, but I can feel my Kokopelli mojo seeping out of my brain right now. And frankly, I can’t afford to lose any of that. I will need it tomorrow, while I struggle up North Beaver Mesa.
