It's funny how this year of the pandemic has been more busier with people camping and hiking than any other year that I can remember.
Same in the Rockies. Possible explanation is 1) Cities became social/physical distancing trap everyone was trying to escape and 2) Lots of people had more time because of loss of work, study interruption, work/study from home etc.
My hope is that more people will come to realize how important nature/environment is to all of us and really a backbone of life everything depends on. But seeing ever increasing pollution levels, wildfires, receding glaciers etc etc I am not overly optimistic
