In my home state, the Utah Four Wheel Drive Association (U4WDA), headed by Steve Jackson, President; organized volunteers to work at a local four wheeling hot spot, American Fork Canyon.
This years gathering was two fold? 50% clean-up and 50% fence construction and repair. However, Mother Nature chose not to cooperate with us, and she dumped rain and snow throughout the day; all the while threatening us with a full-blown snow storm as it fell and stuck about 1000? further up the mountain.
Even in these lackluster conditions, spirit and support for our public lands could not be dampened (or frozen), as we had a truly spectacular turnout. In our estimation there were at least 20 rigs and more than 50 sets of boots on the ground cleaning, fencing, and making repairs.
A much deserved kudos for all that attended, and most especially the U4WDA for not just this event but the numerous others throughout the year. If it weren?t for this commitment by the U4WDA, I do not believe the volunteer support would have been so strong on such a cold, wet day.
