The story was a bit biased and one-sided. Sounds like the usual rant 
from those who are always complaining about the wilderness being 
"locked-up" and only accessible to a few hardy souls. But these ranters 
seldom talk about the reasons for the closure. And (seemingly) never 
talk about the under-funding of our National Parks. And seldom do they 
think that users should pay fees for their actual use.

My two-bits (25¢).
