The operators of the Skookum Dam are quite happy with our presence and activities near their dam. We enjoy a very good relationship with them. They repeatedly gave us formal permission to use any scrap materials we like for the trail and the bridge (despite the comical and childish false accusation by the forest office that we stole them), and offered to open the gate to the intake dam should we require closer access in the future. The enforcement officer also falsely claimed that we cut down the naturally fallen tree spanning Paranoid Creek (another blatant falsehood). Needless to say, this kind of desperate behavior/false allegations tend to come only from those who have something to hide or are not telling the truth.
As for your question mick range with regards to the true motivations of Parks and Forests for this area, all I can say at this time is that the answers are coming.
