Here in Blanding Utah the snowpack in the Abajo Mountains was minimal at best and is almost all melted already. Uncontrolled off-roading also destroys the cryptobiotic crust that is prevalent in the desert. This crust holds the soil together and helps prevent wind erosion.

Did you know that George W. Bush protected more species than Obama? The fisher and wolverine would be protected if the USFWS were told to do so.
