Our Forest Service even boarded up the pit toilets in WMNF

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Over the weekend, my family and I went for a hike in the White Mountain National Forest in Waterville Valley. After the 2-mile hike up the Livermore Trail we came back too the parking area and had to use the bathroom facilities that were in the parking area. Upon going up to the facility, we discovered that it was boarded up with 2x4s with a notice informing us that due to the government shutdown they were closed.
We were upset that the U.S. Government could,not even afford to keep this pit toilet open for use.
I think that maybe they should board up the White House bathrooms along with the Congressional bathrooms, too.
You know the old saying, what's good for the goose is good for the gander!
You gotta just love it!
