LETTER: Thanks to Udall for joining in support of Thompson Divide

I’d like to thank Sen. Mark Udall for co-sponsoring a bill to protect the Thompson Divide with Sen. Michael Bennet.

Thank you … for demonstrating that the wild has a right to be.

Thank you … for your awareness of how damaging this change to our local economies would be: Our lives dependent on ranching, tourism, hiking, wildlife habitat and the crystal waters of its 15 watersheds. Calamitous.

Thank you … for realizing there are appropriate and inappropriate places for oil and gas development.

Thank you … for your determination and attention.

Go for it, Mr. Udall.
