To the editor:

I find the camping parking at Walmart disturbing, but have become acceptant of it over the years. However, given that as an acceptable act I did recently run into another that I found most disturbing. 

I had decided to go to the base of Cedar Mountain and walk the road with my dog for some exercise and to enjoy the weather we have had. Imagine my surprise when I arrived at the parking areas at the base and found it crowded with campers in vans, pickups and other type vehicles. 

To put it mildly, it was a mess with the number of vehicles, trash blowing around and generally not a pleasant sight. I guess it is acceptable to camp wherever one wishes. It just seems to me that it would be appropriate to consider others that may wish to enjoy the scenery without the unexpected distractions. 

I suppose I will have to wait on my walks on Cedar until all the visitors have returned home.

Thanks for the update on the law for the Cedar base. I'm not whining, just found the garbage a bit much.


Just for your information sir you are able to camp at cedar for 14 days and then you need to move so quit your whining check the law

Nothing is worse than people who litter.

I usually see one or two sketchy looking vans parked there every year.
