The desert water hole:
Deserts speak honesty to us. They remind us not to be caught up in all the stresses of the modern world, and to value the small things. Like water.
This tiny water hole sustains life to countless animals from miles around.

monument vally - what a wonderful view. here you see what the temperature, rain and wind can creating with enough time. but unfortunately it wasn't allowed to pass the valley with our camper. so we go for a hike and marvel at this beautiful and unique landscape in the expectation every moment to see a cowboy on his horse like in the movies they made here.

The thunderstorm season on the Colorado Plateau is almost over. To celebrate the spectacle, here's the sun shafting through a clearing storm over the Green River in Canyonlands National Park. This is a straight photograph shot on 4 x 5 film, but people often observe that it looks like a painting. In fact, once during a meet-the-public session in a museum exhibit a visitor accused me of taking a picture of a painting and slipping it in with the "regular" photographs. I explained why I thought it might look like a painting, but in the end just said "thanks". For a description of the circumstances that produced the image go to the Audio Guide in the side bar on my website. The link is on my IG profile. Because of the dark mood this image is not everybody's cup of tea. But if the house were burning and I could only run in and save one transparency (not necessary now, of course, because a scan is archived off-site) this would be the one. I could go back to this spot 100 times and conditions would never come together again in this way. #canyonlands #canyonlandsnationalpark #thunderstorm #clearingstorm #utah #coloradoplateau #landscapephotography #landscapeart #4x5film #largeformat #getoutside #exploremore

Some powerful words from Ed Abbey back in 1968: "A familiar and plaintive admonition; I would like to introduce here an entirely new argument in what has now become a stylized debate: that wilderness should be preserved for political reasons. We may need it someday not only as a refuge from excessive industrialism but also as a refuge from authoritarian government, from political oppression. Grand Canyon, Big Bend, Yellowstone and the High Sierras may be required to function as bases for guerrilla warfare against tyranny. What reason have we Americans to think that our own society will necessarily escape the world-wide drift toward the totalitarian organization of men and institutions?" -Desert Solitaire-

#TBT- My college years coincided with many backpacking trips in America's southwestern desert, inspiring much of my BFA Thesis work. This was one of the pieces in my "Hunter" series, named after the magical melting rocks of Hunter Canyon, one of Utah's myriad BLM gems. "Hunter #2," wood and mild steel, approx. 14' x 5'.

What about some nerdy facts?🤓 did you know meandering rivers carved the valley? And that the valley's #vivid red color comes from iron oxide exposed in the weathered siltstone/sandstone.

#ZinkeLeaks! @usinterior Secretary Ryan Zinke's secret #nationalmonuments review report is devastating.

Read more about it at: grandcanyontrust.org/blog

__

On Sunday, a copy of Secretary Zinke's #secret recommendations to the @whitehouse was leaked to the press. It proposed slashing 4 #publiclands national monuments including #BearsEars, #GrandStaircase and #GoldButte on the #ColoradoPlateau. It also recommends opening national monuments to mining, commercial logging, and fossil fuel drilling. These are the things that #AntiquitiesAct monuments prevent, in order to preserve our heritage and culture!

Never before has a presidential administration considered such an outrageous assault on protected public lands. If Trump acts unilaterally on Zinke's recommendations, he'll be using legal authority he does not have, and it will not stand.

Almost a year ago I jumped on a call to interview Eva Malis for the Uplift coordinator position. We asked about her theory of change and thoughts on direct action, questions she wasn't expecting for a position funded by the Grand Canyon Trust. As she answered beautifully, I texted the other Uplift organizers "I love her so much!!" Uplift 2017 gave us space to learn, build community, and reconnect with the land. My heart is full. Thank you, Eva ❤️

The view from my tent as lie here reflecting on the powerful messages shared yesterday. Janene Yazzie brought us into space with her opening talk. She said (paraphrasing) that "it doesn't matter what you do or any fancy title you think you might hold, what matters is why you do this work." That is what @uplift_climate is for me. A place to remember why we do this work to refocus and connect that shared vision and passion. To #uplift our resolve and unite our voices. And to feed our spirits so we can continue this work. Now, time for breakfast lovingly made by the wonderful folks at #seedsofpeace before a full day of #upliftclimateconference2017.
