From National Geographic December 2001:
Forum  August 2001  Public Lands

"This middle-aged city boy and
his dog dipped into the western
wilderness using BLM offices as
way points on a month-long
drive from Seattle to Washing-
to, D.C. The trust placed in me
as a visitor to these defenseless
and remote lands made me feel
personally responsible for their
well-being. I was amazed at the
lack of vandalism and trash at
the BLM areas accessible by car.
Your article drove home the idea
that total trust instills responsi-
bility. Let's leave the BLM alone.
