Little Colorado Gorge – Closed

The Coalition of American Canyoneers is reporting that Navajo Nation has closed access to Marble Canyon and the Little Colorado River gorge.

It is not clear at this time whether this is a permanent closure or if this is a temporary (seasonal) closure.

According to the Coalition, ” the Bodaway-Gap chapter felt visitors to tribal lands were often not obtaining permits, were starting illegal campfires, were often getting stuck on rough roads requiring rescue, and were not generally treating the land the way they felt it should be treated.”

This is the latest in a series of closures, and the root causes are familiar ones.
