On behalf of the 3,000 members of Back Country Horsemen of Washington, I am writing in support of the preservation of Enchanted Valley Chalet within Olympic National Park.
Our members wholeheartedly support preservation of the chalet. Over the past 35 years Back Country Horsemen from local chapters on and around the Olympic Peninsula have volunteered literally thousands of hours helping to restore and maintain the chalet as well as keeping trail access to the chalet open for all hikers and equestrians alike to use and safely enjoy.
It is our sincere hope that the staff and leadership of the Olympic National Park will favorably consider action necessary to save the chalet at this time. Back Country Horsemen of Washington stand ready to assist with any preservation efforts – within our capabilities — required to preserve the chalet.
Trygve Culp, President
