  1. Dogs should not be allowed in Bears Ears. The water pockets going up to Procession panel have become dog wading pools and there is pooh everywhere. The pools and the creatures that depend on them are being destroyed by dogs.
    Leave your dogs at home.. the desert is no place for them.

    1. Hi Mike,
      I welcome your opinion, as it proves that you care for these precious areas. While I haven’t visited the area in a long time, Cedar Mesa has been my first and all-time favorite place to visit.
      But, like so many things in life, I don’t think, it’s so simple. I am a responsible dog owner, always keep him on a leash and follow all the rules. Unfortunately, there are so many others that don’t, but should I suffer for that? Then you could say, that if it hurts this unique region, saving it takes precedence.
      Then I look at my situation: single and no family. A dog for me is as precious as a child, my sole companion, the one I talk to and who sleeps with me. Can’t leave him home, won’t leave him in a kennel. What to do? Don’t visit Bears Ears, don’t visit the National Parks?
      That frustrates me immensely.
      However from your point of view, I tend to agree with you, how strange that may sound. These places should be protected. But where does it leave me?
