Re: Visit the Central Cascades while you still can...

Maybe just plead ignorance. If an official asked me for my ID, I would show it to them. I'd probably just pay a fee because that would be less hassle in the long run. Probably just ignoring any fee demand would work too. It would be a shame if they issued a warrant for you, and then if you were rout...

I think there's a mindset that if a place is crowded, you limit the number of people that go there until it isn't crowded Vs, imaginatively coming up with ways to accommodate larger number of people. It's our federal land so we should be able to go there. Even though some places get crowded, there i...
