Rocky Mountain National Park to offer fewer campsites, rangers due to federal budget cuts

Full story: Estes Park Trail-Gazette

The millions who visit Rocky Mountain National Park this year will rely on fewer rangers even in the event of an emergency and compete for fewer campsites due to sequestration - a move that is expected to ripple through neighboring communities.

National news media reporting 2/3% cuts accross the board for sequestration. Is the 5% percent indicated in the article that 'RMNP' has been chosen for deeper cuts ; why? Or, should one be drinking Kool Aid while reading this article?

got to cut deeper to afford prioity projects, keep sending our park big whigs to visit our "sister" parks in Poland and Costa Rica and to pay for the pr pieces with nice color photos explaining what we already new about the fern lake fire debacle.

BALONEY !!!! Me smell a "Odumma" moment that the left wing press is putting out there. The sky is falling chicken little. With ALL the waste out there the government (Odumma) has to cut the National Parks ? How about just limiting the travel of the anointed one and his two ax handle wife, that would save millions.
