Site of an illegal ATV route built over and adjacent to 31 cultural sites in 2005, Recapture Canyon is a place of wonder, full of Ancestral Puebloan ruins and archaeological sites. The rouge route builders were fined, and the illegal ATV route remains closed after evidence of grave robbing was found. Instead of helping to repair the damage to prehistory, the radical San Juan County Commission is now requesting a Right of Way from the BLM to reopen the ATV route.  Some are planning to violate the closure on a protest ride before a decision on the Right of Way is issued.  #dumbideas
