Vail Daily letter: I hope Gems pass
Vail, CO Colorado
I am writing as an advocate for the bear, elk, deer, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, skunks, porcupines, mountain goats, lions and moose (also for humans who are on foot or on skis) that use Spraddle Creek Road.
We vote against loud, smelly, polluting and threatening-looking machines that terrify us, destroy the peace and quiet and wreck the road when they get stuck.
We hope the Hidden Gems measure passes and that the tranquility of the backcountry is restored.
