Good morning Montana.

#montana #uppermissouririverbreaks
This was just before bedtime at Black Bluff Rapids Camp (day 2). Today we ended at Coal Banks Landing after a good 22 mile day. The BLM had thoughtfully provided free WiFi at this campground.

Getting back to work after a long weekend is a little easier when your office looks like this 😍

Stay tuned for more info on our next big volunteer day, #nationalpubliclandsday, Sep. 30. 📷 @johnschlepp, Outreach Manager

The Breaks is home to a unique piece of homesteading history. With access to water and fertile land, but inaccessible except by river, no neighbors, and with extreme weather, it was a lonely life. ••

We are so sad to say goodbye to this awesome crew of tree waterers! Yesterday we had to send them off back to school ☹️ We, the cottonwood trees, and the thousands of people who float the river every year are so thankful you guys gave up your summer to come to Montana. Best of luck, guys, thanks for the great summer!! #treekeepers #uppermissouririverbreaks #savethebreaks #keepitpublic #yourpubliclands #montana #missouririverbreaks @mtcorps #conservation #summerinternship
Some pictures of my float trip adventure on the upper Missouri River! Got another chance to rough it in some of Montana's most beautiful and scenic country with some great people! Feels good to live in the land of the free!! #uppermissouririverbreaks

Canoeing (my personal favorite way to access the monument) makes for great exercise!
• •
It targets your traps, delts, lats, biceps & triceps, and core muscles, and is also a great cardio workout! A 175 pound person will burn 350 calories paddling for an hour at 2 mph, 735 calories for an hour at 4 mph!

Thanks to everyone that came out to Missoula Outdoor Cinema tonight and supported our national monuments! #PublicLands #UpperMissouriRiverBreaks #ProtectOurBreaks #HoldOurGround @usinterior
Teddy Roosevelt would be very proud! Secretary Zinke officially announced yesterday that he is recommending to the Trump administration that NO CHANGE be made to the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument.  THANK YOU to everybody who commented in support of the Breaks, it is all thanks to your efforts that we have this win to celebrate -- Montana's #publiclands are safe!

Our sister monuments across the country are still at risk -- Zinke's report on the remaining monuments will be released on August 24th, stay tuned for more results as they are made available. #keepitpublic #publiclandsinpublichands #missouririverbreaks #uppermissouririverbreaks #nationalmonument #montana #teddyroosevelt #americasbestidea

Over the past five years we, in partnership with the BLM, have planted over 450 cottonwood saplings at various sites on the river within the monument. You may have seen them while floating past Judith Landing or Dark Butte Campground, fenced in and with a PVC pipe buried next to it for deep watering. We are helping to preserve the Breaks' cottonwood galleries to provide habitat for the hundreds of species that rely on the Missouri's riparian forests for survival.  See the link in our bio for more info on our stewardship activities.

My last day of solo camping on the #uppermissouririverbreaks and then back behind the wheel to continue with #GART2017. My @towerpaddleboard is inflatable - that's it rolled up on my windshield - but performs like a solid board. And yes, that's an actual paper map hanging over the driver's door; there's no cell service out here! Three days without connection to the outside world and being totally alone was utterly fabulous. (I paddled 16 more miles the next day from Carter to Fort Benton; I didn't want my time on the river to end.) #sup #suplife #supcowboy #GART2017

If your weekend plans include a campfire, be sure to use fire safety to keep your campfire from becoming a wildfire!
• • •
Always use designated fire rings, and when you're finished, make sure your fire is DEAD OUT! Pour water over the embers while stirring until the sizzling stops, then touch it to make sure it feels cool. If it's too hot to touch, get more water!  See the link in bio for @smokeybear's Campfire Safety Guide.

Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument ("The Breaks") , Montana, USA  The Breaks is a series of badland areas characterized by rock outcroppings, steep bluffs and grassy plains. The valley of the Upper Missouri was originally laid down in horizontal layers, the sediments and shorelines of a great inland sea that once covered most of the Great Plains. These layers have since been folded, faulted, uplifted, modified by volcanic activity and sculpted by glaciers. #uppermissouririverbreaks #montana #naturelovers #natgeo #natgeowild

The black-footed ferret is the only ferret species native to North America. They live in large prairie dog towns, are nocturnal, and were once believed to be extinct. After being rediscovered, the population dwindled to only 18 animals in 1987 following an outbreak of sylvatic plague and canine distemper. Thanks to a captive breeding program, there are now believed to be around 1000 black-footed ferrets, having been reintroduced to the wild in 8 western states, Mexico, and Canada over the last 20 years, including the Charles M. Russell Wilderness Complex, adjacent to the Missouri Breaks Monument.

Temperatures have risen across Montana, including in the Breaks. With little shade, the heat on the river can be brutal. When it's hot out, and especially when you're working hard paddling the river, it's important to stay hydrated! When you're dehydrated you put yourself at risk for heat illness, which can be deadly. 
It is recommended that you bring a gallon of water per person per day on the river. Filtering the river water isn't recommended due to agricultural runoff.  You can have a safe and fun trip if you stay hydrated! And maybe schedule some swimming breaks, too. 😉
