Stumble on a deer shed on yesterday's elk hunt.  Found the herd of elk (one 6x6 and one 5x6 with 14 cows/calves) but couldn't catch up to them, found a shed, and founds lots of pine nuts.  It was another great day on the Arizona Strip.  This buck must know he's not much of a target on the strip.  He just chilled on the side of the road.  Haha I thought it was a fish and game decoy till it walked off haha. #az #azstrip #azelk #nonpermit #otc #arizonastrip #arizonaelk #shed #shedhunting #pinenuts #september #bugle #elk #deer

The bags are packed and we are ready for another great Yevingkarere Camp! That means it's time to put Instagram to bed until next week. Wish us luck!

This trip to the Arizona Strip for elk is over.  F&G estimate less then 50 elk in 13a, 13b, 12a, and 12b combined.  Even with the bad odds, I wanted to elk hunt so I got a tag. I found rubs from last year and sign from a couple months ago, then the sign started getting fresher and fresher.  I finally found a fresh rub but could never locate the bull who made it.  Its really flat and thick so I couldn't do much glassing.  I'll be back when they are bugling!! #az #arizona #arizonaelk #elkhunt #nonpermit #otc #elk #hunt #hunting #arizonastrip #stripelk #archery #bowhunt

You know that feeling you get when you're standing at the bottom of a wide canyon and everything is perfectly quiet and still? There's no sound of cars or lawn mowers, no buzzing of planes or rustling of leaves in the breeze or birds singing in the trees. Nothing but silence. I love that feeling.

Seasonless. There is little variation in seasons in the Virgin River Gorge except for a thin layer of snow in Winter or roads awash with rain from Spring and Summer storms. #virginrivergorge #arizona #arizonautahborder I-15 #desert #softhues #mountains #summer #scorchinghot #roadtrip #arizonastrip #nature #naturelover #natureart #august #naturesbeauty #naturephotography #landscape #igutah #igarizona 08/31/1708/31/17 natures beauty
Pipe Spring National Monument in Northern Arizona is rich with local history involving pioneers and the Kaibab Paiute. Here you can enjoy an oasis in the desert, a museum, gift shop, gardens, historic fort, and living history demonstrations and talks. I've always liked these doors and finally, after several visits over the years, took this photo of them. It makes a nice stop before or after driving to Toroweap.

Here's another nice one in Toroweap Valley. We took a wrong turn and almost ended up in #ColoradoCity — that would have been bad. I can't tell if Andrew looks #grumpy because he's starting to get rained on by a #desertstorm or perhaps he just needs to use a lavatory. 💩 #Arizona #travel #outdoors #northrim #grandcanyon #arizonastrip #adventure #adventuretime #adventureawaits #ford #fordtrucks #oldford #oldtruck #friends #goodtimes

I fell in love with the reflection of the sky on the rippling green waters of the Colorado River yesterday. Our two day drive back home was filled with some of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen.

Our week of the little guys marches on with this beautiful photo of a two-tailed swallowtail butterfly. The peace, tranquility, and solitude of Parashant's forests provide ample opportunities for us to reconnect with the natural world around us and soak up all the details.

"Lonely is not a feeling when you're alone, lonely is a feeling when no one cares."
-Unknown
.
This week we feature some of our favorite "little guys" of Parashant. Today we bring you an unsung star of the desert: the stink beetle. These beetles (also called pinacate beetles) are very common on Parashant and can be found virtually anywhere on the monument. In response to a threat they often turn upside down and do a handstand with their butts in the air. If further provoked, they will spray out an unpleasant chemical odor to deter predators. The tactic usually works, but a few animals have found a work around to this odorous problem. Grasshopper mice, for example, will grab a stink beetle and jam its rear-end in the ground before consuming the beetle head-first. Talk about being unappreciated!

Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument, AZ on Kodachrome 35mm.
-
Last week the interior secretary Ryan Zinke announced that this monument is worthy of existence and will remain as is. The current "review" of other national monuments continues however, despite the fact that Americans overwhelmingly favor preservation of existing national monuments.
-

The photo above shows the summit of Mount Dellenbaugh and the Grand Canyon beyond. This lonesome peak commands a great view of the area, which is why the three deserters of John Wesley Powell's 1879 river trip through the Grand Canyon climbed it after hiking away from the river. One of the men left a signature on this peak. The men were never found and were likely murdered but it remains a mystery. #grandcanyon #grandcanyonparashantnationalmonument #arizonastrip #hikeaz #azhiking #findyourpark #monumentsforall #nationalmonument #arizona #instagramaz #igsouthwest #johnwesleypowell #mypubliclands  #keep_it_public

This lonesome peak commands a great view of the area, which is why the three deserters of John Wesley Powell's 1879 river trip through the Grand Canyon climbed it after hiking away from the river. One of the men left a signature on this peak. The men were never found and were likely murdered but it remains a mystery. #grandcanyon  #grandcanyonparashantnationalmonument  #arizonastrip  #hikeaz  #azhiking  #findyourpark  #monumentsforall  #nationalmonument  #arizona  #instagramaz  #igsouthwest  #johnwesleypowell  #mypubliclands  #keep_it_public 
I heard recently that the fruit of the yucca is edible. On my last solo foray into the desert I picked about a dozen (not from the yucca in this picture, but from a banana yucca a little further down the road), took them home, and baked them until tender. It's true, they were edible, but not at all good. 🤢

I'm becoming increasingly interested in wild desert edibles. Prickly Pear and Mormon Tea are both givens, but I've also heard Mesquite is edible. Anyone have any experience with foraging native foods? Any yuccas out there that don't taste like a dirt-covered bell pepper smothered in kerosene sauce?
