Public Input Needed to Prevent the Destruction of Scenic Mormon Canyon Road

To get its turbines and towers into the Mountains, Wasatch needs to widen, straighten and grade Mormon Canyon Road, part of the scenic Boxelder-Mormon Canyon Loop featured in Dan Lewis’s classic 8,000 Miles of Dirt: A Backroad Travel Guide to Wyoming.

Wasatch has induced a public body - the Converse County Board of County Commissioners - to apply to the BLM on its behalf to get permission for this to happen.

The BLM has asked for public comments to be submitted by October 26, (» Read the BLM press release) and we strongly urge all of you to write asking BLM not to allow this extreme makeover of one of the region’s scenic byways.
