  •  Speaking of Acadia, is it even possible to close (0+ / 0-)

    it?  It's hardly what I would call isolated wilderness, say compared to the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Big Bend, etc.  It's kind of a hodgepodge of towns, neighborhoods, and park land all non-contiguously mingled together.  There must be hundreds of trailheads that enter park land and are completely ungated.  If I remember correctly the NPS is trying to acquire private lands that are technically within the park boundaries, but that is going to take a long time.  It's definitely a different feeling national park compared to the major parks out west.
