Snowed-sign

“Federal land managers were required to determine where on the country‚Äôs vast forests snow machines could travel without harming or destroying natural resources like rivers or wildlife like imperiled Canada lynx that are dependent on undisturbed winter landscapes.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/01/29/us-usa-environment-snowmobiles-idUKKBN0L207320150129)
