The recent letter from Terri Robertson (“Celebrate our wilderness,” Sept. 22) sorely misses the point of wilderness. She states that in her youth, she traveled down dirt roads for sounds of nature. Well, in everyone’s zeal to have wilderness, they block off all of the dirt roads. My wife and I have seen many places that we used to drive through that are now closed off thanks to some environmentalists. Their agenda is apparently to close off all lands and have everyone in one small area.
