Why even bother to close the back country when everything else will remain open. Every year during these drought years the Forest Service has refused to take the true precautionary measurements and totally close the Sandias...they closed Cienega Canyon because of the danger of falling trees...has anyone besides the Forest Service driven up the Sandia Crest Highway lately and looked at the trees everywhere along the road and along the other picnic areas? The Sandias are in dire condition and only fix besides making the Forest Service work hard and earn their money is to have a fire and that is what they are hoping for. Closing just the trails is a joke!

And the sad part is, if a fire does start, it won't be from natural sources like lightning. It'll be from some retard throwing their cigarette out the car window.

No, the retard probably is somebody who lives in the woods and tries to burn some weeds.
