No More Phone in the Desert
from the too-bad dept
I know I’ve spoken about the phone in the desert story here before, but here’s an update. It seems that the National Parks Service has put an end to it by removing the phone. They say that there’s now too much traffic to the phone (though there’s no evidence of that).
Comments on “No More Phone in the Desert”
Just months ago, I called the pay phone and an old man answered and stated that Pacific Bell had just finished servicing the phone. Apparently PacBell had repaired it since it was so damaged. So whoever gets this phone won’t have the original, only a restoration.
P.S. – I asked the man about the indian fellow that would usually answer. He said he had left because his journey/vacation was over; whatever that meant.
Anyone else ever get an answer?
I’m starting to feel as if those who run the National Parks don’t want visitors. As if visitors somehow spoil the landscape. They can’t seem to stand the unwashed masses descending on their sacred ground.
Makes me wonder if the environmental movement is becoming quasi-religious.
