Man this is a complex issue and a surprisingly good article by Outside. I’ve got some friends who are SAR or Mountain Rescue and it’s a tough fucking gig that you do because you want to give back. Once I have more time for a longer reply that’ll come but one way to deal with this is increased state NPS/USFS funding to deal with the ever growing number of outdoor enthusiasts on public lands. “Throw money at the problem” is an easy thing to say...but considering as a government the US does jack shit for funding our parks even a modest increase would go a looooong way.
