    Human waste is particularly icky? Sure, it would be preferable if all animals relieved themselves in toilets, but humans are the only ones reliably capable of doing so, so why not force them to?

    BG, we need you to dress-down SLC. They are NAZIS when it comes to policing the waters of both Cottonwood Canyons. First, no dogs. Period. Second, nobody is to TOUCH the water. The reason? It is drinking water. Of course they chlorinate it, but still, nobody can swim, fish, bathe, drink, or touch the water. When we stayed at Tanner Flats in 2012 we observed the SLC Water Department ACTUALLY driving through daily to monitor people. They still do that. The campground managers were very blunt about pointing out to us at check-in a sign that said, "NO SWIMMING". They said, "don't touch the water." Pretty typical for SLC. They can't do what is needed and are not at all competent, but overpolice stupid shit like this.

    This.

    The most idiotic thing I have seen is at Hunter where PEAKS has installed garbage cans at various lift towers. So now you get to see an empty garbage can surrounded by tons of cans thrown there by people with bad aim.

    Yeah, I don't understand how people can come to the mountains and litter; it's antithetical to the experience, make no sense.

    Another Jersey thing! Mountain Creek/Vernon Valley used to have those too back in the 90s!

    I had one of my students, a young girl (probably 5 or 6) tell me during a lesson on the lift "I saw a bra tree at Camelback". I have no idea what I responded with

    There's no threat to the watershed from a human taking a pee versus a rabbit or a black bear taking a pee.

    That's really ridiculous. I remember there being a big h2o treatment facility right at the bottom of the canyon. Yes, Fido does carry bacteria, but so too does every living thing, including raccoon, elk, bear, squirrels, skunk, mice, and 101 other critters that frolic in that same water, daily. It's not like 10 or 20 dogs stepping into the stream each day are going to harm the water, water that is particle strained & chlorinated, etc...

    Uhhhh..... hate those things. They have them at Blue Mountain in PA as well, and they're ugly as hell.
