I want to thank Bill Efting, director of Glenwood Springs Parks and Recreation, and the Glenwood City Council for recent loving concern they have shown to the 3,000 acres the city owns in South Canyon. They have put up No Overnight Camping, No Shooting, and No Dumping Signs designating that South Canyon is a city park worthy of care because it is a beautiful canyon. They have blocked the wonderful sled area with rocks, so four-wheelers can’t ruin the sledding area. They have blocked all access to areas where people have camped and left their trash. I still see people shooting near the road, and leaving their messy targets of old TVs, and targets. The shooting range is open at certain hours, where people should be shooting. It’s against the law to shoot off the road. South Canyon is a historical area. Most towns in Colorado would be pleased to have that much recreational area. It would be easy to make a recreational lake next to the shooting range by damning up South Canyon Creek. There would be plenty of snow runoff to fill it in the spring. I also want to thank the Garfield County Commissioners for fixing up the South Canyon Road.Sincerely,Winifred RichardsonGlenwood Springs
