As a flatlander, I hugely appreciate heading to the foothills & mountains for a little adventuring. Been doing it for years, sort of an annual migration west. I've sure noticed things getting busier, and it's gotten much harder to get a camp spot in the bigger more popular campgrounds. For this reason, more and more, I (we really, am usually with a buddy) shifted to more remote backcountry camping. Personally, I think it's a necessary and good thing to invest in developing the area further. Sure is some uproar over it, which I can understand... but I'm guessing there were similar feelings when Kananaskis was in the planning stages (and that turned out allright). A .pdf map of the proposal: https://talkaep.alberta.ca/6512/documents/12743 The announcement: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/alberta-bighorn-parks-rocky-mountains-1.4918209 Is all the recent uproar over the (cancelled) consultation process justified? Sounds like any public consultation meetings would spin out of control, emotions are running so high over this. Regardless, I suspect they'll be pushing ahead on this anyways. Most importantly, how will this affect backcountry exploring for us motorcyclists?
