Letter: Protect the area

Although I am not a Utah resident, I frequently vacation in the unspoiled spectacular southeast area of your state. This letter is of extreme importance to all who love our nation's public lands. Many readers may be surprised to learn these lands are not fully protected from privatization, including the Bears Ears region. I am 88 years old and want this land to be protected permanently by President Obama. This land contains valuable Native American ancestral history and must not be disturbed by developers. Please join with me and members of the tribes to have this area permanently protected for all time.
