The Bureau of Land Management has moved the Art Smith Trail sign from the original trail location in Dead Indian Canyon to the foot of what locals call the Developers’ Trail. They have also reinforced the fence used to keep people out of Dead Indian Canyon and have been ripping apart hill sides to block trails that have been in existence for decades. The BLM claims they are protecting Big Horn Sheep. Probably in the same way the California Fish and Game are protecting the Big Horn Sheep on the Bump and Grind Trail.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
The Bureau of Land Management believes they are accountable to no one.
