Letter to the editor: Help keep CR 183 open for the public

Posted: Wednesday, Feb 6th, 2013
By Hugh and Rosie Dowers and family, Hawk Springs



This letter for support is for everyone who has enjoyed time in Lone Tree Canyon as a guest of Hugh and Rosie Dowers. If you have spent time in this scenic canyon day hiking, camping, picnicking, attending weddings, church services or family reunions, gathering for special holiday celebrations or just visiting Hugh and Rosie, please help us keep this country road open.

There is a petition filed on Jan. 4, 2013 to vacate County Road (CR) No. 183. This county road was established in the 1930s and used for many years to access the canyon. A neighboring landowner has alleged the road to be overused, a hazard and a liability issue. 

The petitioners propose to consent to a private road, but we are opposing that due to the fact that we have experienced no problems with the current county road into the canyon. 

According to Wyoming statute, a private road could have a locked gate on it so, of course, we adamantly disagree with that happening. If CR No. 183 remains opened, we would ask for minimal maintenance from the county, because it has proven to be a low-maintenance road for years.

Change is not always an improvement. Please help us keep a small part of our world accessible for you to enjoy by writing a letter of support and/or calling County Commissioner Carl Rupp, who has been assigned as visitor of this petition. 

Commissioner Rupp’s contact information is as follows:

We sincerely appreciate your time and consideration in this matter and thank you in advance for your support.


This dirt road leads into Lone Tree Canyon in Goshen County, WY - Home to Hugh and Rosie Dowers. This is a county road, which has required minimal maintenance by Goshen County Road and Bridge Department for numerous years. By signing this petition, I am in support of making no changes to this county road and am opposed to making it a private road.
