    The best years of my life were spent doing the 46 peaks. The Adirondacks are a gem in New York State. They are to be respected. What would it take to have more rangers available monitor the area as large has it is? I am writing Gov. Cuomo to express my concerns of the over use. I am also urging those that come there to be respectful of where they so in years to come others can enjoy the area.

    Every time someone gets away with camping illegally, 10 more are likely to pop up next week. Lack of enforcement has insidious consequences. Once people realize there is no patrolling or enforcement, there may as well be no laws. I feel terrible for the Rangers who are stretched so thin they cannot even respond to these prohibited activities. We all have to bombard Basil Seggos and the governor with letters before illegal activity becomes more commonplace. This bad trend won’t go away on its own.
