    I was a missionary there in 1970. I too saw a fairly pristine forest. Our stewarship with our God given environment ia important, but we do realize thia ia a test, in a mortal environment. I noticed, for example, President Smith's fur coat. Just Sayin!

    This article is interesting, but doesn't seem to correspond with what I encountered at the Sacred Grove in 1989 (before Mr. Parrot was hired).
    What was there in 1989 was a forest with a thriving understory of bushes and saplings. There was abundant leaf litter. There was only a couple of narrow trails that everyone seemed to respect. The parking was quite a distance away from the grove.
    What changed between 1989 and 1996 that resulted in the unhealthy change?

    That picture is amazing, when I first saw it I thought he was carved from a tree.
