Badger Creek and smaller feeder tributaries dissect the rugged, arid terrain of Bighorn Sheep Canyon, including navigating through steep red sandstone uplifts in this area. The lively, yearlong running Badger Creek, one of few perennial streams in the region, flows a few miles through this unit, before depositing in the mighty Arkansas River. Badger Creek offers excellent opportunities for trout fishing, hiking, and wildlife viewing. You may see a herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, mule deer, brown trout, bald eagle, or many other forms of life that depend on this important waterway. BLM documented Badger Creek South for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics  in 2014, however it is currently unprotected. This area is just as wild and deserving of protection as the adjacent 25,000 plus acre Badger Creek proposed wilderness to the north, which was just proposed in @RepDianaDeGette’s 2018 Colorado Wilderness Act. #COWilderness2018  Stay tuned for next week as we continue to highlight the wildest areas in BLM RGFO, in anticipation of their draft plan revision, now expected to be released to the public in October 2018 with a 90-day public comment period! @mypubliclands #SeeBLM  #yourpubliclands  #BLMWild
