The seasons are changing and it feels amazing. I'm going to start sharing some more summer adventures this week that got overlooked. 
As the weather gets chillier, I hope you can agree that @johannasaur snagging trouts in the Winds is pretty cool, it sure is an inspiring place. .

August was a blur and October is shaping up to be more of the same. It felt like such a luxury to just sit quietly and study a pinecone this weekend. I clearly need to spend more time doing this, one, because my drawings have room for improvement and two, because as soon as we came back into cell service my newly developed nervous twitch immediately resurfaced. | 
Also over the weekend, Zinke officially recommended opening 10 national monuments to drilling, logging, commercial fishing, and other activities for private profit. Between all the recent news of natural disasters (cough *climate change* cough) and feeling like people's rights and ways of life are constantly under threat, well, resistance fatigue is real. But, we will regret allowing this administration to hand over this land to private companies for profit. Take 10 seconds to help the @NRDC fight this.

Abandoned historic train tunnels of the original transcontinental railroad above Donner Lake. Built by Chinese labor in the region made famous by doomed settlers near indigenous petroglyphs. So— 1. Do you think they're haunted? And 2. How much would someone have to pay you to spend the night in them? 👻

Every time I travel for work, I'm struck by the stark difference between Washington and Utah. It's in this moment that I remember, there is beauty all around. // #worktravel #landscape #protectpubliclands #fromtheair #utah #beutahful #thisistheplace #lifeelevated

I never thought there was what feels like a forest with big trees, ferns and streams running through in the US but it's there..in Yosemite valley! The pine forest there is the most beautiful pine forest I have ever seen but I also saw tons of dead trees around which is sad sight... .

Bureau of land management wilderness study area (BLM WSA)- Sweetwater rocks complex 
Hunting at the top of mountains. With all the trappings of a high elevation, severe country sheep hunt, the Sweetwater Rocks WSA complex offers a rugged landscape for the intrepid explorer. This moon like outcropping of granite boulders and sparse country is what is left from one of the oldest mountain ranges in the west. Time; while having sunk these giants into the sage steppe has not erased the ancient feel of this place. Habitat for mule deer, antelope, the occasional elk, and many of the deserts unique creatures makes this submerged mountain range a prime place for the backcountry hunter. While almost entirely surrounded by private land owners, many of which are incredible allies of the conservation of this place; the Sweetwater Rocks complex is accessible to the determined sportsman or woman. The rich history of place, the uniqueness of wildlife, and the remote and often alien feel of this stretch of habitat makes it a gem amongst BLM lands. 
Sweetwater Rocks WSA Complex is under a process of review from local stakeholders who are part of the Fremont County Wyoming Public Lands Initiative ( fcpli.com ). This county based, multiple use representing group, is working towards a recommendation of designation for this landscape. While a unique opportunity exists here to take part in a national level designation of a local place it will only be of favorable outcome if the public land users step up and engage. The next meeting will be on Monday September 28th at 6pm at the Fremont county court house in lander Wyoming. These meetings are open to the public with public comment opportunities.

Tenkara Summit 2017 highlights: "I've always believed you protect what you love. We need more people loving rivers"- Yvon Chouinard. This is a belief we share and something that promoted the creation of Tenkara USA in 2009. When we love rivers we fight to protect access to them, to keep the water flowing in them and to protect the beings that inhabit them. #tenkara #fishsimply #tenkarasummit #protectpubliclands #protectourwater  #yvonchouinard @troutunlimited

These monuments were established as an attempt to conserve national lands so that future generations will be able to enjoy the natural beauty in this country. So that animals will have habitats.  So that wildlife is protected.  We don't need more coal mining and drilling and cattle grazing.  Jesus.  Call your representatives.

"We made it through the Sierras minus Tuolumne...the water was too high there...we will finish that when we get through the rest of the trail." - Skittles ♢ #humansofthepct ♢ •

Zebra and Skittles we're the first two #hikers we met this year that'd made it straight through the High #Sierras. Although Tuolumne was a little high we were more than impressed and happy to see hikers make it safely through. •

•

They were on their way to Sierra City from Donner Pass when we crossed paths on a scouting trip for the Pacific Crest Trail Association Trail Skills College to be held in the coming weeks. •
•
•

This couple hails from #Redding, #California and said the Pacific Crest Trail had been on their tick list for some time. Great to see folks getting after their goals •
•
•

With this encounter we started to get a sense that maybe it wasn't the end of days in the Sierras and that some folks would get through without incident. •
•
•

It has been a crazy year to say the least but we are happy to see folks choose the path most correct for them. •

You can follow their adventure @colt.ferg and @jennwallball. •

Had a wonderful time on #publiclands while evacuating for #hurricaneirma.  That said, I can't help but think that these events are connected by fossil fuel.  Zinke wants to shrink our #nationalmonuments so fossil fuel companies can drill and #climatechange is making hurricanes more intense...all so the fossil fuel industry can prosper? #ActOnClimate #ProtectPublicLands #ProtectWhatYouLove #Sustainability #SustainableBusiness #flyfishing #hiking #northcarolina

More from our roving traveler (Campmor retiree) Back Roads Bev. Wild places and open space are a necessity, as John Muir declared 100 years ago. It is very disconcerting that 10 national monuments have just been identified for significant reductions in size and scope. Wild and open space are more critical now than ever. We hope the tradition of conservation and preservation continue amidst significant challenges ahead.

Everett and I on the "Walk in the Park." We ascended 8 peaks, about 20 miles a handful of other park visitors, oh and my 60th Longs Peak Summit

Total number of recreation visitors in #rockymountainnationalpark = 2016: 4,517,585, the park's record highest annual visitation.  One footprint is a tiny impact but 4.5 million takes its toll. Your experience is special but we do have an affect on others and the surrounding wilderness. #bekind #leavenotrace

♢ "Fire is a force of nature,
We can't tame it or tell it what to do,
You think of it as torture,
When it engulfs the world around you." ♢
♢ "In the forests and on through the Prarie, 
With a spark is all it takes,
Bursting with light and full fury,
Whispering prayers for everyone's sake." ♢
♢ "Days and nights become a blur,
Necessities become simple and more direct,
When you'll go home you can't be sure, 
It's full on out there with no special effects." ♢
♢ "To those who fight on the front lines, 
We salute you for your service , 
We'd  be out there next to you digging in time,
Knowing full well to stay open and not nervous." ♢
♢ "It's not easy with friends and family on the mind,
Changing situations and hazards abound,
Your lives out there intertwine, 
The mouth of the fire as the only sound." ♢
♢ "To watch forests change so fast,
It's humbling to see time slow yet go so fast,
Our lives, our passions, our dreams,
Out there for mother nature and so much more it seems." ♢

This one goes out to all the brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers who've been a part of one of the largest wildfire seasons we've ever seen. ♢

Thank you for your service, your dedication and fortitude. •

♢ ♢ "Fire is a force of nature, We can't tame it or tell it what to do, You think of it as torture, When it engulfs the world around you." ♢ ♢ "In the forests and on through the Prarie, With a spark is all it takes, Bursting with light and full fury, Whispering prayers for everyone's sake." ♢ ♢ "Days and nights become a blur, Necessities become simple and more direct, When you'll go home you can't be sure, It's full on out there with no special effects." ♢ ♢ "To those who fight on the front lines, We salute you for your service , We'd be out there next to you digging in time, Knowing full well to stay open and not nervous." ♢ ♢ "It's not easy with friends and family on the mind, Changing situations and hazards abound, Your lives out there intertwine, The mouth of the fire as the only sound." ♢ ♢ "To watch forests change so fast, It's humbling to see time slow yet go so fast, Our lives, our passions, our dreams, Out there for mother nature and so much more it seems." ♢ ♢ This one goes out to all the brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers who've been a part of one of the largest wildfire seasons we've ever seen. ♢ ♢ Thank you for your service, your dedication and fortitude. • • • We hope for rain, snow and other good weather so you can rest, go home and enjoy some time off. • • • Cheers to you • • • The Prodigy, 09/18/17 • • • Photo taken by @missoulamuaythai on the Mullan Fire 2015 just outside #Missoula , #Montana  • • • #406  #montanamoment  #wildlandfirefighters  #smokeythebear  #mtdnrc  #getyoursmokey_on  #striketeam  #MSO  #DNRC  #firelookout  #dispatch  #pulaski  #poem  #forests  #mountains  #fires  #IA  #fireseason  #firesmart  #mountainlife  #forestfire  #prayforain  #prayforsnow  #dedication  #montucky  #2017fireseason  #forceofnature  #poems

"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself." -Edward Abbey

Make no mistake, an attack on any public lands is an attack on all public lands. A leaked memo today gave us further insight into @repryanzinke's plans to shrink and modify precious national monuments and public lands across the American west. Stand with @sierraclub and tell congress to give 'em the finger. Link in bio. 📸 @latigocoffee #desertmagic #protectpubliclands

Holding back every tear and ounce of anger I have to type out this message.... today, news was leaked that a handful of national monuments are being considered for downsizing. There's no secret about my love for the outdoors, so it's no surprise my passion against this. What's not publicly discussed is the rich history, the beauty, the untold stories of survival and how these lands can heal. Please consider calling Congress and urging them against this. None of this is worth a quick buck for oil or lumber. Keep public lands, public. #ProtectPublicLands #grandescalantenationalmonument #keeppubliclandspublic #keeppubliclandsinpublichands #RESIST #protectbearsears #nationalmonument #protectnature #trump #congress #dumptrump #environmentalist #earth #savemothernature #keepitwild

What Bears Ears means to me: here I am top-roping the shit out of Scarface at Indian Creek. I'm a terrible crack climber, but I love Indian Creek. Why? Look behind me. This is a landscape that opens us up. Camped out there, we were far enough way from cities and cell service that our minds could quiet. We (humans) need space! We need BIG wide open national monuments that show us how limitless America can be. Respect the size of this desert. If you put in roads and plants and fracture it up and privatize it just for a short term oil and gas boom, what will be left for the future? A fractured and broken landscape? A desert scarred by machines? Do you think Bears Ears is too big? Let it be! We are running out of space! Protect the places we have left. Fight for them. They are disappearing. #protectbearsears #protectpubliclands #saveourmonuments #bearsears #dontshrinknationalmonuments #indiancreek #publiclands #findopenplaces #saynotozinke #savebearsears

Do you like to hike, mountain bike, trail run, hunt, fish, bird watch, photograph wildlife, walk with your kids, camp, walk your dog, ride your atv, rock climb, etc?? Chances are you do those things on public land. You know, that land that is set aside for all of us to enjoy in our respective hobbies. Secretary Zinke is recommending vastly reducing the size of at least 10 of our national monuments so oil, gas, and mining companies can come in and do their thing, destroying the land, water, flora, fauna, and in some cases historical and sacred sites in the process. It is imperative to understand that once these lands are gone, they are gone forever. Stand up for these places. Call your senators and let them know these places are important and need to remain protected. After all, these are OUR lands. Follow @wildernesssociety to stay up to date on the latest news regarding this issue and ways you can help. ✌🏼

Prospector S. E. Osborn is the first known to have entered Balcony House in the spring of 1884. His name and the date have been found in a dwelling in lower Soda Canyon. Jesse Nusbaum excavated Balcony House in 1910. Nusbaum was not only an accomplished archeologist, he was also one of the first superintendents of Mesa Verde National Park. - NPS website⠀

When the NorthWest 🌬 weather Gods permit, smiles fire on all cylinders until fatigue finally creeps in. Incredible time bagging towers and big days with @outdoorsman_jake around Washington Pass.

It's been a year of slowing down, starting from scratch, and changing viewpoints. Over and over, I find that what we choose to do with the cards we have depends squarely on the perspective you choose to take before you start. Privilege can be the great un-equalizer for those without it; but experience, perseverance, strength of heart in the face of struggle, and Mother Nature will always remain the greatest equalizers. #staystrong #innaturewetrust

"This is my First Day on the trail!" - Miquel ● ♤ #humansofthepct ♤

We met Miquel from #Mallorca, #Spain as we scouted out sites for PCTA Trail Skills College in #Truckee, #California •
•
•

We'd seen him walking up to Donner Pass and then again on the trail. He was extremely happy to finally be walking on the PCT as it took him some time to get to Truckee from his international trip •
•
•

We didn't get to chat for long but did offer him a sticker to send him on his way. He wants to hike the whole Pacific Crest Trail but he's just going to see what happens and go with the flow. •
