Went, ran over a cone or two, and saw everything we wanted to. Can you believe they had ARMED rangers guarding scenic pull-off spots?? Unbelievable.

We have property 30 miles north of Williams. Was there last week, stopped in Williams on Saturday on the way back, a lot of tourists in town because the canyon is closed. You should be able to find some place to camp around Williams or Tusayan outside the park.

Once the barricades are up and signs noting the area is closed, and you go on in, you are trespassing on federal land.

At our NWR, there are two federal law enforcement offices that are considered essential. In speaking with them, they will first just run you off. Come back again, he said that they simply have your vehicle towed and impounded. So far they have not had to shoot anyone, but he said the towing the vehicle was a simple positive way to get the message across.

They have had to run a few folks out and cite a couple of hunters.

The 'armed guards' are the park law enforcement rangers who are about the only ones left to work in our national parks. They are there for a purpose: 'to preserve and PROTECT our national treasures'. It really is so hard to comprehend for some folks.
