Stark writes it, so he gives himself the last word:
Big Brother ruining people’s wilderness experience?Early commenters, however, are more on Fayhee's side, such as this:
Nope. Volunteers watching our for people who might get in trouble.
But I also admit that the presence of an official person does impact your enjoyment of the backcountry. In point of fact that person is there to watch you and that fact alone is annoying to folks like Fayhee, maybe you, too.
If I want to climb a fourteener in the nude on a cloudy July afternoon, then I don’t want your volly buddies harshing my mellow. Seriously, stay in Boulder, and focus on your community, leave your advice in the city, and enjoy the Wilderness however you see fit.
