Hate to break it to you but Robbers Roost is on private land. We don't need any more National Monuments created by a President abusing the Antiquities Act. If Congress wants to go through the process of creating one, fine. But the land is ours and should belong to our state. All these groups can go and take a flying leap.

Flashback is right, we don't need any more National Monuments. Over 6300 miles of roads and trails have been closed to vehicular traffic in the State of Utah and a National Monument would close more. At my age I can't go where the hikers go and my grandchildren are also closed out of these areas. The Federal Government should consider giving the state back to the state so we would be more in control of our own destiney and not tied to a failing Federal Government.
