The easy way to discuss recreation and wildlife for the Central Rocky Mountain Region is to review past adventure. Zebulon Pike (5), George F. Ruxton (7), Francis Parkman (4), and other explorers passed through the region and wrote about it. We could pretend that their adventures still exist, that those who reside in the area possess their fortitude. We could delude those who admire or envy remnant recreational and wildlife resources of the modern West, into believing that enjoyments surpassing those of other regions are the result of place rather than time or condition--that values are fixed rather than dependent upon ecological factors which can be managed by men. We would be far from the truth.
