Dear Rev. Strong,
Perhaps “we” are at war with ourselves …and you have chosen to vent on us.
Pattee Canyon, Blue Mountain and the Rattlesnake are Missoula’s backyard playground. I don't think anyone has the illusion that Crazy Canyon is a wilderness. I suspect that you live in a house that has a yard that you maintain at a higher level than Crazy Canyon even with it’s thinned trees. Our urban interface recreation areas are similar in that “for the greater good” they require more intensive management than wilderness to accommodate the most legitimate needs.
The more wild woods you seem to seek are just about a mile further out. If that still isn't sufficient we have lots of true wilderness available… really close.
