Rainy landscapes in N. California. Traveling along the Shasta River Canyon road it looked like it was 10 pm at night but it was only 1 in the afternoon on the way to our little gold mine town of Yreka in Shasta Valley.

Sights are set. Goals are made. There’s no tunnel vision- only the big picture. 
Conquer the mountain, enjoy the journey through the hills. A victory is no victory without a hint of struggle. 
You stand higher as you achieve more. Maybe you grew a few inches since the journey began. 
Hooray for you! 
The world is yours for the taking.

Personally, I’m horrible at public speaking (so I feel.) the message and vision in your head sounds so perfect, then it gets grated worse than cheese once you begin speaking. Fret not friends, we all have to begin somewhere. And this is an excellent place to start! Especially if #outdooradvocacy and #thewild is something you’re passionate about!

Pilot Rock in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. Part of the Soda Mountain Wilderness, Pilot Rock area has over 24,700 acres within this important monument. Although Pilot Rock sits totally in Oregon, it can be seen as far south as Shasta Valley and several other places in California.  The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument  land sits at the crossroads of the Cascade, Siskiyou and Klamath mountain ranges. both N. California and S. Oregon. Managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Medford Oregon,  the convergence of three geologically,distinct mountain ranges resulted in an area with remarkable biological diversity and a tremendously varied landscape. This monument reconizes a remarkable ecology and protects a diverse range of biological, aquatic, archeological and historic objects.

Unique geological formations, important wildlife habitat, and vast open spaces comprise this basin and range landscape.

Shasta River actually starts in the Trinity Alps above Shasta Valley in N. California. Most of it's journey it flows across the huge expanse of this great valley until it reaches the Shasta River Canyon on the way to the Klamath River. This shot is where the river begins it's journey through this expansive canyon.

"Deer Lays". This phrase has become a standard term for pressed down fields that deer created using this area to sleep and rest. It provides them a warm bed and comfortable one. Hard part is getting pics of the deer as they leave before sunrise. This field is right across the street from my house. Siskiyou Mountain landscapes.

We are officially having right now our first heavy winter storm and up to 10 inches is predicted in the Siskiyou Mountains with more in the Cascades. Grateful for this weather that keeps this beautiful country alive. All my relations.

Took advantage of some “me time” to explore the back roads of Crooked River. I’ve used pictures from SteelHead Falls before to talk about #publicland but had never been there. The river had dwindled in some areas, just as rivers typically do in the fall. The air was crisp. The cliffs told stories of a dwelling past. I walked the edge, with little fear. The spirits were whispering in my ear. Shhh, don’t be afraid. You’ve got this. We are in this together.

Perspective. Heading down Shasta River Canyon road negotiating some of this wild old back road. On this road especially, the Siskiyou County Road Commision keeps trucks with huge snow plow type devices out daily  just to keep the falling rocks cleaned from the road. Especially after rain or snow. It still is the wild west out here in N. California.

California’s arid interior includes millions of acres of spectacular #BLMWild public lands. @calwildorg and its partner, @friendsoftheinyo, recently took a group of people to see Conglomerate Mesa — a remote and untrammeled land, frequented by Native American people for pinyon nut gathering and by solitude seekers for hiking, camping, and hunting. Yet the area remains widely unknown to many.

Big piles of leaves ready for me to jump in. Autumn along the Klamath River in N. California. Tomorrow night the rain and snow come to the high country and I couldn't be more grateful.

I see a world of possibilities. Relentless for the pursuit of righteousness. My sights are set on more than one course of action. 
In this internet crazed world, it’s incredibly easy to get lost wanting to live someone else’s life. 
It’s not that you can’t live that life, but you do need to own it and find your own path for success. 
Find a niche, find a cause, add your flava flave. 
I want to travel in an RV. I’m not artsy, not a Renaissance woman. Or maybe I am a Renaissance woman by seeking the new norm. 
But I don’t have a craft to sell to fuel adventure. My passion is advocating the outdoors ensuring future generations have equal access to our public lands. How do I turn that into freedom on the road? That’s my path for discovery. 
What’s yours? #fuelyourpassion

With word this week that #bearsears will be reduced in size came concerns that Vermillion Cliffs National Monument will face a similar plight.  Hopefully this unique area remains protected, with a dark sky that afforded me the view of the stars seen here and allowed me to enjoy countless meteors streaking across the sky in the early morning of my recent visit.  To some this is just a pile of rocks with no value.  My five trips to the general area mean it's much more than that imho.  There are only so many places like this left to escape into the wild.

On a technical basis, disappointed in the over exposed middle portion of the shot from my second light here, but with more experience hopefully can get the hang of this #astrophotography thing. 📷 Sony A7

The big Mulberry Tree outside my almost clean window. All of the sudden colors are here in full force and I am loving it. This whole tiny Hornbrook Valley came to be during the 1800s when travelers and pioneers were coming in force to find new lives in California. We are literally at the bottom of the Siskiyou Pass..or also known as the Oregon Trail. Surrounded on all sides by towering mountains, including the Siskiyou and Klamath Mountains, this small valley offered fresh horses and a well needed respite. I am sure each and every person was grateful to have made it thru alive the huge mountain passes and down to this little valley to rest up, find fresh food including lots of apples and pears, and fresh hay for their animals. Many of these trees were planted back then to offer shade and comfort, and the fruit trees everywhere still offer up baskets of plenty for those of us lucky to live here now. I am on my last bunch of apples from my own trees and am waiting to take a hot pie out of the oven now. Grab some tea and join me.
