Some of this country’s most treasured national lands in Colorado could be devastated under RS 2477. In Moffat
County, county commissioners have claimed broad rights-of-way across
more than 300,000 acres of wilderness area including Dinosaur National
Monument. The monument is an extraordinary area that protects
awe-inspiring canyons of the Green and Yampa Rivers, deposits of
fossilized dinosaur bones, pre-historic rock art, and serves as
critical habitat for species such as the imperiled peregrine falcon
and bald eagle.

Yampa River Canyon:
Moffat County claims the
Yampa River canyon (above) for more than 20 miles as a 'constructed
highway.' County data gathered to support the assertion claims that
the right-of-way was "built by Indians" in the 1800s and that it was
used in winter to feed cattle when users of this alleged route "drove
on ice." Images (c) 2003, Colorado Environmental Coalition.
