Modern Hiker's Top Content

You've no doubt watched with alarm as these headlines passed across your screens: Because of the #GovernmentShutdown, many @usinterior sites have remained open despite almost completely losing their essential basic services and patrols. This includes many iconic @nationalparkservice sites -- and because it happened over a holiday period when visitation normally spikes, the results are shocking and sad but not wholly unpredictable.⠀ ⠀ Garbage has piled up throughout the parks. Toilets are overflowing. Human waste is everywhere. Cars are parking where they shouldn't and people are camping where they're causing damage. Illegal activity and unregulated fires abound. Animals are feasting on and spreading around trash. A hiker broke his leg in @bigbendnps and had to be hauled out by strangers because SAR was stretched too thin and too few rangers were on duty to help. People are pitching tents on cryptobiotic soil in @deathvalleynps. Plastic sleds and empty booze bottles are piled up all over @lassennps. The list goes on.⠀ ⠀ While we applaud the SUPERHUMAN efforts of volunteers who are doing their best with their own time, money, and sweat equity to prevent damage, it's clear that by leaving access to parks open, the NPS is failing at its core mission to "preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations." That's why we think it's time the entire park system closed for the remainder of this shutdown.⠀ ⠀ You can read more and see even more distressing photos and stories of this potentially irreparable damage being dealt to our public lands all across the country by heading to the site or clicking on the link in the bio.⠀ ⠀ We strongly urge you to stay out of these places and instead visit city, state, or regional parks that are open and funded -- and if you do visit federal land, PLEASE consider joining a volunteer cleanup or at least packing in some extra trash bags to remove the garbage you will undoubtedly encounter.⠀ ⠀ Photo by NPS, used w Creative Common.⠀ ⠀ #modernhiker #hiking #outdoors #keepitpublic #trumpshutdown #nps #nationalparks
