Keep Snowmobiles out of Yellowstone


Regarding your Feb. 21 article "Snowmobile buzz echoes in White House": I would implore President Bush to urgently consider leaving the snowmobile ban in place to help preserve the serenity of the Yellowstone National Park, and keep it free from unnecessary noise and pollutants.

Rather than contribute to the beauty of the park, snowmobilers detract in a very detrimental way, with little or no concern for their surroundings, or what effect their presence has on the wildlife.

This isn't an issue of guaranteeing entry to public lands. It's about drawing the line when a group's activity collides with and undermines the well- being of what has been preserved and set aside for the enrichment and enjoyment of the public as a whole.

Because of its negative impact, let snowmobiling be limited to areas outside Yellowstone and our sacred national parks.

I appreciate the faithful, dependable, reliable, and accurate performance of their tasks, and these continue to bless me long after that day on R&R in Hong Kong when I acquired one more (branded) thing.
