    There’s no doubt that the permit system makes it easier for some people to hike. Especially older people with established hiking friends or spouse and state workers with an established schedule. But always please remember a permit system makes it harder for others and impossible for still others. Not everyone has the same job/family situation to plan more than a day or two ahead for a weekend hike. Some are now completely cut off. That is why they are so tragic and why the HPAG said they should be a last resort.
