Letter: Be careful what you wish for

Hey Roaring Fork Valley — food for thought.

Back in the day…

1964: Maroon Bells designated as Wilderness. Cool! On the map!

2014: 175 piles of human waste, 244 dogs off leash, 107 illegal campsites, 307 illegal fires (probably way more than this).

Result: Trashed.

Today…

2013: Outside Magazine declares Carbondale one of the Best Towns 2013.

2014: Sunset Magazine considers three attractions in Glenwood Springs as finalists.

2014: Livability declares Glenwood as a top 10 Small Town — America’s Best Places To Live and Visit.

2014: http://www.visitglenwood.com/accolades (more of the above, over and over).

Result: You tell me.

So Roaring Fork Valley: What do you wish for?
