Letter: Stop the trucks before they start

The Forest Service is proposing to run just less than 1,000 18-wheeler logging loads up and down the Frying Pan for a tree clearing/thinning project at the end of the road. Anyone who rides the Frying Pan knows the incredible safety hazards a project like this will present since the road is narrow, winding and with no shoulder. With boats and RVs and general traffic often crossing the double yellow line to pass bicycles, a logging truck coming in the opposite direction will create a challenging situation to say the least.

If you are concerned, please email bcrary@fs.us.fed and maybe encourage two or three friends to do the same. We have the power to stop this. Let’s use it.
