Dogs to be allowed in Rocky Mountain National Park

FYI:

I was talking to a park ranger today and learned that dogs are going to be allowed on the trails in Rocky Mountain National Park beginning July 1. The public announcement and commentary period will be released later this week.

On the plus side, it is suspected that dogs will not be allowed above the boulderfield on the Longs Peak Trail. Dogs must be leashed on all trails and waste must be carried out as well.

I heard they are moving all the prairie dogs they have removed from the suburbs to the park.

This is discrimination. Cats hike too!

Come on, Scott. This is too good of a prank not to write up on a "news" blog and post to the 14ers.com Facebook page.

The only requirement I heard was the dog had to have climbed Everest first... Scott you seem to have a dog theme going today.
