There is no better way to protect nature than by getting people out in it...that is what we do week after week, year after year. Today? Gridley Springs trail to the camp. Come with us? The whole calendar is at Meetup.com/SierraClubVentura

Referred to by rangers as the Bermuda Triangle of Yosemite, Tenaya Canyon is a strenuous, no foot trail feature of the park. Apparently a curse was invoked in 1850 by Chief Tenaya after a battalion killed his son with the intent of deporting the natives of Yosemite. Mysterious disappearances and deaths have been reported here. If you are willing to brave the hype, the through hike is absolutely breathtaking with an added bonus of not seeing another person for an entire day. The American Canyoneering Association gives Tenaya Canyon a rating of 3B V. The 3 is an "intermediate" rating on a scale of 1 to 4, with 4 most difficult; B is a measure of water volume on a scale of A to C; and the V indicates that the trip will take one and a half days. Swimming is a mandatory part of this hike, so get some grippy water shoes as you'll also need traction to descend glacial polished granite throughout the canyon. In my opinion, the best hike in the park. Plan accordingly and have fun.
Do you live in Cobb, Cherokee, or North Fulton? Join our Centennial Sierra Club TOMORROW, Saturday, September 23rd for the group's 25th Anniversary Celebration and Potluck Picnic!

#KeepItPublic - the Cascade-Siskiyou Nat'l Monument is on the list of nat'l monuments the current admin is considering shrinking or loosening protections for. I ran an ultramarathon in this area a while back and wanted to post a small tribute to these lands' protection. I know issues like this are complex, but I feel like we need to be so, so careful about decisions impacting protections of these spaces. It especially troubles me to hear that Bears Ears Nat'l Monument is being threatened as well - that one's designation by joint efforts of Native American tribes makes it all the more important, and that shouldn't just be disregarded. Lord knows I still have a lot to learn about the issues and how I can help : P but I plan on doing so the best I can, and I'm hopeful that others will do so as well #OkGettingOffTheTinySoapboxNow 😝🙂

"The biggest cliche in photography is sunrise and sunset," said by a well regarded (and rightfully so) photographer I happen to admire very much. I do, however, disagree on this point, respectfully. Kelso Dunes in the Mojave National Preserve at sunset (and it was glorious). Tech stuff:Canon 5DS R, Canon 100-400 L II at 400mm, RRS tripod and BH 50, 400 ISO, 1/250 at f18. Basic LR adjustments.
Here you go! Full Infographic revealed!
Now you can see how rapidly the need for synthetic (polyester, acrylic, nylon) clothing is growing and is expected to grow. Moreover, you can see that washing synthetic microfibers pollutes our oceans with non-biodegradable microplastics (85% of all waste!), which starve and cause reproductive problems in our aquatic life. Moreover, you can see that we, humans, are not immune to this, although the impact of eating and drinking synthetic microfibers by humans are still unknown.
If you are for divesting from fossil fuels (the thing synthetic clothing is made of) and for keeping our environment and all of us healthy- avoid, when you can, clothing containing synthetic textile fibres.
Some things are worth taking care of! Let's protect the places we want future generations to enjoy! From now on in my Etsy shop, 5% of print sales from the "Georgia Nature and Trails" series go to the @gasierraclub and 5% of print sales of the "City in the Forest: Atlanta Skyline" go to @treesatlanta 🌲I truly believe in what each of these organizations is doing for our city and state and want to join with you in supporting their cause. Shop the prints by using the link in my bio. You'll end up with wall art and a more beautiful future! 🌲⛰
The past few months have seen rise to tragedies and hardships from natural disasters and hate, but our #MilitaryOutdoors group is here to prove that we can still come together to learn about nature and each other.
On Saturday, September 16, our @militaryoutdoors team, @inspiring_connections_outdoors, and @ircatlanta came together to celebrate diversity and the planet that we all share.
The #HikeforPeace was a day of unity and fun- we hope you'll join us next time!
