    Matrimony Spring in Moab Closed - x-post from Utah forum

    Stopped there dozens of time over the years. Always ran into someone I knew filling bottles and camp jugs there. Sad to see it closed. Full news story

    The place keeps changing. Paved parking at Slickrock, burned out Dewey Bridge, now this. What next?

    Well, dang it. Now where are we going to get camping and riding water from?
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Bummer. I guess if there are bad things in the water, then its probably better no one is drinking from it, but I'd bet it is a bureaucratic pissing match, not a real health problem.

    Seems like Moab is not changing for the better. I keep finding more and more when I go there, there are less and less people that respect and care for the playground they are on. I don't want to generalize, but it seems like it stems from all the looky-loo tourists and the motorsports crowd.

    I remember the first time I went to Moab, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE was preaching about not going onto the cryptobiotic soil. DON'T BUST THE CRUST was the mantra. Now, no one even knows what I am talking about.

    So, if the water is truly contaminated, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Well, thanks partly to activists like Robert Redford and the fact that we had an administration change the next thing could have been the closing of trails like Amasa Back due to gas drilling. Thankfully that looks more unlikely now.
