      I would be glad to talk to him.  I assume that he means the trail would qualify as an RS 2477 road under the 1866 mining law.  We are pursuing that theory as well as a prescription or adverse possession in favor of the public theory.

      KEN, THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS. I DO NOT HAVE ANY PHOTOS,
      HOWEVER I HAVE SPOKEN WITH A FRIEND THAT IS WITH THE BLM
      OUT OF DENVER AND IS FAMILIAR WITH THIS CLOSURE.

      HIS RESEARCH INDICATED THAT THE WASATCH
      TRAIL IS AN OLD ROAD EASEMENT ( NOT SURE OF THE DATES)
      AND IT IS QUESTIONABLE IF CLOSURE IS LEGAL?

      IF THIS INFO IS HELPFUL OR YOU NEED ADDITIONAL INFO, I
      COULD GET HIS CONTACT INFO TO YOU.

      BEST WISHES, DICK CURTIS ( HR100 RUNNER)
