No! You Can’t Take that Picture.

When I’m out on a hike, backpacking or camping I enjoy taking pictures of the landscape and nature. I have a goal to one day travel to Glacier National, hike it and take pictures. However, according to BIG government, I might not be permitted to take pictures of a national forest. From what I’ve read, this rule, if it passes, will not apply to the everyday person using the pictures for memories. But the questions begs to answer, how will the federal government monitor who’s taking pictures for personal or commercial use.

YOU READ AND DECIDE…weight in with your thoughts and comments.

THE U.S. FOREST SERVICE WANTS TO FINE YOU $1,000 FOR TAKING PICTURES IN THE FOREST

The Forest Service oversees 193 million acres of wilderness. In a month, you won’t be able to take a picture in them without getting a fine — even if the new rules are unconstitutional.

    • One thought I had; if I’m taking a picture how are they suppose to know if it’s just a vacation/ memory pic or going to be used for commercial purposes. How would they monitor such a rule?
