Submission Text
I urge you to choose the no-action alternative for the proposed Uinta Basin Railway. I have lived in Colorado for 20 yrs. My family relishes spending time in the outdoors. We have raised our boys doing the activities in Colorado's parks and open spaces that we have so enjoyed ourselves. Our backpack trips take us deep into the wilderness that we so love. We moved to Colorado those many years ago because of its unique opportunities to explore these untouched areas- to see and hear wildlife and to get away from the highways, cars, ATVs, trains, etc. that are present in states that don't place such a high value on open spaces. We don't want further development (for roads or trains) to disturb the wilderness that we prize so highly. This project is an unacceptable threat to the health, safety and well-being of wildlife, humans and the planet. Please choose the no-action alternative.
