Taras, I hear you. And I agree. But gosh I think this is small potatoes.

I thank all of you for your volunteer service as trailhead stewards! I think that's a terrific program, and the ONLY thing that will help us address some of the problems. People DO NOT read signs. ...

I'm glad things went well this weekend, and that the seldom visited Mt. Van got a little love as a result of the layout.
