Utahns expected to walk on water.
OK, not exactly. The slippery issue of whether or not a public easement for a river includes the right to walk on the bottom of the river has once again been sidestepped. Me, I'm playing it safe with this or maybe a pair of these.

According to Roman Law, the public has right to use not only the river itself, but the river banks (even if the banks are private property).

I think its interesting that in modern day America people are even more obsessed with the absolute right to own everything than people were in the supposedly unenlightened past.
