I'd like that, too, but it's not going to happen.

Fortunately not! Even wilderness costs money, and keeping development interests out of it costs political capital. There won't be enough of either if we try to fence off all natural wonders for the fit and able bodied. Because, sadly, there are not enough of the fit and able-bodied. Ya'll are such elitists!
