  1. GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO LEAVE OUR WATER ALONE. SINCE I WAS A CHILD MY DAD AND GRANDPA WOULD TAKE US FISHING UP IN THE GILA. MY KIDS ALSO LOVE TO GO UP THE GILA TO THE GRAPEVINE FORKS. IT IS ONE OF OUR FAVORITE CAMPING SPOTS, ALSO TURKEY CREEK, BOX CANYON, BILL EVENS WILL BE AFFECTED IF THEY DAM UP THE GILA RIVER. MY OPNION IS THEY NEED TO LEAVE OUR RIVER ALONE.

  2. Backpacking in the Gila Wilderness (i.e. Railroad Canyon) from around 1982-90) N. of Emery Pass there used to be up to 16 minor stream crossings and readily available water to use. Over the years these dried up and at times you had to suck water from whoever depressions you could find, and of course the vegetation reflected this as well. It’s one beautiful area!!
