The U.S. Forest Service in Colorado may charge people to climb four of the fourteeners in the state's Sangre de Cristo mountains. Reportedly, the Forest Service spent a cool million on trail improvements in the area, and is seeking to recoup some of that money in the form of $10 or $20 fees. Some hikers are, predictably, upset about the proposal. What say you?
