Maybe we can get the Border Patrol drones to monitor Crazy Crook a little more closely and catch the perps. Mini Mart

Man, what a bummer... but good they're going to fix it.

I had this idea once of a giant brushed metal version of the CDT
    trail logo, about 10ft in diameter, and up off the ground about 10ft
    or so - like the CDT's biggest trail sign. It could be angled so
    that when the spring/fall sun is setting, it'd reflect on the trail.
    You'd be able to see that sucker for a mile down there - like a
    glowing beacon as the sun set. But, of course, that kind of thing
    would be a big target for metal junkies and whatever else. Maybe
    someday though...
