Lindstrom misses point on use of tarn, Blue Lakes areas

In reference to County Commissioner Gary Lindstrom’s March 13 column about water: Perhaps it’s because the Goose Pasture Tarn south of Breckenridge is closed to the public that one doesn’t see hordes frequenting it.

Also, have you not witnessed the parade of vehicles on Blue Lakes Road on a summer day? The consequent degradation of the road is very evident.

The state-park-like camping scene – minus the toilets – below the dam on weekends is a contribution to the environmental impact.

flooding of more fragile tundra will not alleviate problems resulting from industrial greed and overpopulation in inherently arid areas.
