To some a photo of a Jeep in a remote mountain or desert setting is exciting to others it is a nuisance. I do some light to moderate off-road travel. My Jeeps have and will take me places that I could never get to otherwise. When I capture those moments and share them I take others there, too.
When I first started investigating off road travel and recreation, I learned about Tread Lightly! Tread Lightly! Is an organization dedicated to helping those who enjoy outdoor recreation do so in a manner that leaves the least impact on the environment, allowing access to remain open.
All over the country there are battles going on between the federal government, states, local communities, and outdoor enthusiasts between leaving access to roads and trails open, closing them, or restricting them. Some examples include:
- Closing existing Jeep roads and trails
- Banning mountain bikes from all trails in National Parks
- Eliminating bridle trails in parks
- Banning ATV use
- Banning camping in some areas
- Banning dogs in some areas
