Locals Try to Save the Environment

Favorite thing: Two Park Rangers worked here at the park for years, and starting in 1968, Edward Abbey was one to promote save the Nature of this regional area. He became a one man crusader to spread the word how development and tourism is ruining the environment of the pristine land. He wrote about 15+ books on subjects, and became reknowned for his viewpoints. Along came Jim Stiles and Ed ended up being his mentor. Jim carried on the tradition of trying to save the land form intrusion and being overrun by tourists around Moab. He started a free paper called Canyon County Zephyr. It now is only on line, but he has stories to tell, and it a great cartoon artist.
