Move those legs

Dear Editor:

In response to Paul Anderson’s Fair Game column of Aug. 1 in The Aspen Times about the gridlock at Capitol Creek trailhead, there is a solution: No nonresident cars allowed past the staging area at the bottom of the hill. Hikers and backpackers can leave their cars in the lot and walk, yes, that’s right, walk up to their respective trailheads.

Residents who live past the staging area could be issued a permit. No one without a permit would be allowed to drive up the road. In this age of budget cutting, policing such a policy would depend on the honor system and volunteers. I know this sounds impractical but it’s worth a try. And if you insist on taking your dogs, keep them on a leash. At least think about it.
