Heading home after 10 days of Wilderness Medicine training off the grid at the historic Lamar Buffalo Ranch. // 1907, Yellowstone NP - humans do something they've never done before. With the Yellowstone bison herd down to 23 animals, a conservation effort begins to protect the species from extinction. For the next 40+ years the Bison herd is ranched like cattle and later released to support the park's bison population and save the American icon. #yolostone #nationalparks #americasgreatestidea

In March 2016 I traveled through the new @parquepatagonia with longtime friends @danduane and @chris_mcnamara and new friend #yadidlevyphotography . It was an amazing adventure that you can read about in the December 2017 issue of @mensjournal. But what’s really remarkable is how this park has come to be. @kristine_tompkins and her late husband #DougTompkins had the vision of creating the park, purchasing 175,000 acres of the #vallechacabuco which would then connect to two other Chilean national reserves, #reservajeinimeini and #reservatamango. The resulting park is the size of #Yosemite and is a remarkably beautiful place and important reserve of Patagonian flora and fauna. What is also remarkable is that while the #trumpadministration works to undo national monuments and cede our #publiclands for extractive industries, Chile along with @tompkins_conservation has teamed up to place into permanent protection 10 million acres! #americasgreatestidea is alive and well in Chile.

Thank you Kris and all of those who have worked so hard to make the dream come alive. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is a magical place whose essence defies capture in a photograph, but I tried my best. .

I just finished watching Ken Burns' National Parks: America's Greatest Idea because I'm in the midst of planning a hiking trip this summer with my Dad through one of the parks I've wanted to see for a long time: Yellowstone! Been a long time since I've been on a proper wilderness retreat--last time was 2011 when I hiked the Grand Canyon for a Geology class--and I'm in great need for what Thoreau calls the "tonic of wildness." The composer Ferde Grofé was so moved by his experience of the parks system that he wrote the now-famous Grand Canyon Suite. I'm spinning it this morning while I dream of geysers and canyons and hot springs. #nowspinning #ferdegrofe #grandcanyonsuite #kenburns #americasgreatestidea

"We are stardust, we are golden, we are billion year old carbon, and we got to get ourselves back to the garden." -Joni Mitchell ⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰ Good evening with good friends, and now bedtime with Ken Burns and the national parks.

In 1871, the Hayden expedition set out to survey the sources of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers, the area that was soon to become the nation’s first national park. Thomas Moran joined as artist of the team and depicted many of Yellowstone’s geologic features and landscapes. These depictions later proved essential in convincing the United States Congress to establish Yellowstone as a national park. During the forty days he spent in the area, Moran documented over 30 different sites. His sketches along with William Henry Jackson’s photographs captured the nation’s attention and forever linked the artist with the area. In fact, his name became so synonymous with Yellowstone that he was often referred to as Thomas “Yellowstone” Moran. #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #grandcanyonofyellowstone #landscapephotography #landscape #wyoming #river #yellowstoneriver #nationalpark #nps #america #americasgreatestidea #travel #canon #canon5dmarkiii #canonphotography #hiking #backpacking #thomasmoran #thenationalparkspass Photo by Jeff Johannsen All rights reserved ©

Stand up. ..
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. ~~ Robert F. Kennedy

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity" - John Muir (#uwmadison alum), a quote that rings as true today as ever for the 3 million people that visit Yosemite National Park every year. Thanks for preserving this natural cathedral for all to worship
