When it comes to camping at Colorado’s Conundrum Hot Springs, whether or not to go may depend on whether or not you’ll need to go–and whether or not you’re willing to carry it out after you go.

From The Aspen Times:

_The Forest Service will place a dispenser full of human poop bags at the trailhead this month and urge backpackers to use them, according to Kevin Warner, wilderness crew supervisor for the Aspen-Sopris Ranger District. . . .

_Warner hopes the program doesn’t present a conundrum for backpackers. He hopes the concept appeals to backpackers’ environmental ethic.

“Two thousand people, two thousand poops — they start thinking, ‘Definitely something should be done up here,'” Warner said._

So what do you think? Good idea? Would you use the bags?
