Sorting through pictures from my photoshoot yesterday 💕 I typically don’t advertise that I do shoots, and do them for fun for people I know. This was my first family and one year shoot, and I love the photos so far! These three were the cutest and great to work with because they’re naturally passionate, and that’s not something you can pose ☺️ everyone wish this cutie pie a happy first birthday, please! 🎉1️⃣🎀

#FeedbackFriday — When it comes to conservation, do you feel your government is listening to you? And if not, what could the government do to make you feel heard on critical habitat issues? 
Check out this piece by conservation advocate Kristen Gunther about the impact of recent federal management decisions on our mule deer herds and our public lands.

As part of the Bureau of Land Management (mypubliclands) land-use plan revision for the Carlsbad region, citizens nominated the Birds of Prey Grassland Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) to protect 340,500 acres of wildlife habitat in Southeast New Mexico’s Wild Chihuahuan Desert from industrial development. BLM’s draft plan fails to safeguard this important area, but we still have time to speak up for our #BLMWild public lands.

Today. How beautiful is our beloved Mt. Shasta taking on a sky blue pallette. I was stoked to see lots of snow already on top and its barely October. At over 14,000 ft., Mt. Shasta is part of the lower Cascade Range in N. California. These pictures do not do this mountain justice. One of the largest skyscrapers in L. A. is 1,018 ft so roughly 14 skyscrapers on top of each other would meet the height of this mountain. In kilometers, we are looking at 4.267 km tall, in fact a little over that. I guess what I am really trying to say is if you ever get a chance to visit N. California,  come see Mt. Shasta. The impressive size will never leave you. Siskiyou County.

"In Wyoming, conservationists are working to safeguard the sensitive Red Desert to Hoback mule deer migration corridor — critical habitat under threat from development and, at 150 miles, the longest mule deer migration ever recorded. The BLM’s lease sale in September included parcels directly in the path of this world-renowned big game migration, as well as other critical pathways in the region.

One thing is clear: this so-called 'energy dominance' approach does not fit with the BLM’s 'multiple use' mandate, and some of the 'uses' that are being sidelined — such as wildlife habitat — are irretrievable. If we disrupt a fragile, narrow migration corridor, we are setting ourselves up for declining herds and losses that we won’t be able to undo." - Kristen Gunther, @wyomingoutdoorcouncil

Views of Shasta Valley in N. California. In the distance lies the Cascade Range of which Mt. Shasta is a part of. Goose Nest and Whaleback are visual here. This valley boasts wierd mounds and hills, ranches, sage and sagebrush, lava caves, rivers, lakes and is surrounded by several other mountain ranges and lush forests.

This is what autumn looks like here in N. California. Some trees are almost there, many not. This was taken at the Collier Rest Stop in N. California, Siskiyou County. The last rest stop in California heading north. It is also one of most beautiful places bordering the Klamath River.

Colorado’s Racepath Gulch is located in the heart of Bighorn Sheep Canyon in the Arkansas River Canyonlands and has been recognized by the BLM (@mypubliclands) Royal Gorge Field Office (RGFO) for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics. 
This rugged landscape is comprised of many steep rocky hillsides, meadows, and unique geologic rock features, with a number of drainages, including Texas Creek.  Racepath Gulch is adjacent to the McIntyre Hills Wilderness Study Area (WSA), and shares many of the same wilderness characteristics, wildlife habitat, and biodiversity significance. 
Not only is it important habitat and connectivity zone for area wildlife like Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, black bear, elk, mule deer, mountain lion, and BLM sensitive species’ Gunnison’s prairie dog, the cliffs and rock outcroppings provide refuge for imperiled and sensitive species such as the Brazilian free tailed bat and bald eagle respectively. 
This region of Bighorn Sheep Canyon, including BLM’s Racepath Gulch area, also supports extraordinary biological features, due to the inclusion of many globally imperiled and vulnerable plant species, including the Arkansas Canyon Stickleaf, Degener beardtongue, Fendler cloak-fern, and jeweled blazingstar.  The Arkansas Canyon Stickleaf is endemic to this region, with this conservation area representing the largest known concentration in the world. 
Racepath Gulch and other similar #BLMWild public lands in the region are deserving of protection.

“Travel is a fantastic self-development tool, because it extricates you from the values of your culture and shows you that another society can live with entirely different values and still function and not hate themselves. This exposure to different cultural values and metrics then forces you to reexamine what seems obvious in your own life and to consider that perhaps it’s not necessarily the best way to live.” @markmansonnet •
Just 14 more days and then I’m headed to Colorado to pick up Sam! 😳 where has time gone? I remember the wonder and excitement I felt seeing the canyons, mountains, rivers, buttes, trees, oceans, deserts, lakes, wildlife, roads, National Parks, etc., of the Western half of the USA for the first time as a kid, and later on as an adult, and I can’t wait to show him too. I think traveling is one of the best things we can do for our own personal growth. I’ve learned so much about myself, others, and the world by traveling and I’m sure this road trip will be just the same 💛 Time to fine tune the last bit of planning! Does anyone have any bucket list locations in the USA they want to go to?

This week we head up to South Park and explore some of the incredible high elevation #BLMWild 
lands around Reinecker Ridge, one of the highest elevation BLM lands in the state. This unique ridgeline in South Park provides outstanding scenic resources and backcountry recreational 
opportunities, including big game hunting. 
BLM’s Reinecker Ridge and adjacent areas have extraordinary biological features, due to the inclusion of globally rare, unique rich fen wetlands and globally and state rare plants that have 
adapted to the rich fens, including the globally vulnerable Colorado Tansy-aster and other rare 
plant communities. The ridgeline also boasts a healthy mixed forest of limber and bristlecone 
pines, with the latter being among the longest living life forms on Earth! 
The Reinecker Ridge wildlands area, with its varied ecosystems and high biodiversity, also attracts a whole range of valued wildlife species. Reinecker Ridge has breeding ground for the globally 
vulnerable Mountain Plover. It provides habitat for the threatened species, Canadian lynx, an Dz
endangered species candidate,dz boreal toad, a BLM sensitive species, Gunnison’s prairie-dog, and 
other valued species: elk, moose, mule deer, pronghorn, black bear, mountain lion, bobcat, ermine, goshawk, bald eagle, gold eagle, great horned owl, burrowing owl, and migratory snowy owl. 
The importance and significance of Reinecker Ridge is steeped in history. There is strong 
evidence of inhabitation by indigenous peoples as the Reinecker Ridge area has been populated by 
native peoples for millennia. Reinecker Ridge and the adjacent valley were highly valued hunting 
grounds, and possible tribe battlegrounds. 
Stepping even further back in history, Woolly mammoth fossils and bones, estimated at 20,000 years old, were found along the east face of Reinecker Ridge by the USGS in the 1930s. 
These incredible resources at Reinecker Ridge deserve protection and special management from 
the BLM Royal Gorge Field Office. Lend your voice of support in BLM’s upcoming Eastern Colorado Draft plan revision.  @mypubliclands #SeeBLM #yourpubliclands

The importance and significance of Reinecker Ridge is steeped in history. There is strong evidence of inhabitation by indigenous peoples as the Reinecker Ridge area has been populated by native peoples for millennia. Reinecker Ridge and the adjacent valley were highly valued hunting grounds, and possible tribe battlegrounds. Stepping even further back in history, Woolly mammoth fossils and bones, estimated at 20,000 years old, were found along the east face of Reinecker Ridge by the USGS in the 1930s. These incredible resources at Reinecker Ridge deserve protection and special management from the BLM Royal Gorge Field Office. Lend your voice of support in BLM’s upcoming Eastern Colorado Draft plan revision. @mypubliclands #SeeBLM  #yourpubliclands

Yesterday. Equinox Day. September 2018.
Shasta Valley in N. California is usually a photographers dream. This year has broken all the rules. Yesterday was the first day the valley was not completely filled with black smoke from all the forest fires in N. California and S. Oregon. Mt. Shasta stood like a cloaked lady in the Cascade Range and connected with the Trinity Alps.  All of us living in this sacred landscape have literally breathed a sigh of relief, including all the critters that make this place home. Grateful.

This week we travel to the west side of Heurfano County in South-central Colorado to the Blanca Massif area of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, just a few miles southeast of the Great Sand Dunes 
National Park and Preserve. BLM’s Stanley Creek #landswithwildernesscharacteristics is a high 
elevation natural area, adjacent to the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness, San Isabel National Forest, and 
Huerfano State Wildlife area. 
The Stanley Creek #BLMWild area supports a diversity of plant and wildlife habitats, due to its 
topographic variety and assorted ecosystems. Rolling hills are predominant in this unit, consisting 
of open meadows with numerous wildflowers and mixed forest groves of aspen, pinyon pine, 
ponderosa pine, and blue spruce. Riparian life is also abundant in the unit as it sources the Huerfano River, Stanley Creek, Deep Canyon Creek, and Manzanares Creek, among other unnamed 
creeks, tributaries, and gulches that drain south through the unit. 
BLM’s Stanley Creek provides exceptional wildlife habitat and connectivity for numerous wildlife 
species, including black bear, elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, 
mountain lion, as well as potential habitat and range for the threatened and endangered species 
Canadian lynx. 
BLM recently documented this natural landscape for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics, 
however this wild area is not managed for such. This can change! 
We need your voice of support for Stanley Creek and similar wild areas in BLM’s upcoming 
Eastern Colorado Draft plan revision, coming October 2018, with a 90-day public comment period. 
Stay tuned next week as we continue to highlight BLM RGFO’s most awesome wild areas, worthy 
of administrative protection. @Mypubliclands #SeeBLM #yourpubliclands

Already, more than 70% of your public lands in the Carlsbad, New Mexico region are leased for oil and gas drilling, with more industry lease sales planned for this winter. Despite this development, numerous natural areas still exist, particularly near the Guadalupe National Forest and Carlsbad Caverns National Park. As a one of the best places in the U.S. to view a diverse array of hawks and eagles, along with sensitive salt playas that support rare native plants, our voices can make a difference for wildlife and wildlands in the Bureau of Land Management - New Mexico's final land management plan for the region.

The #BLMWild Cucharas Canyon is a rare intact wild canyon area on Colorado’s eastern plains.  Take a through-hike down the canyon and enjoy the sounds of the trickling river or the cascading song of a canyon wren.  Or visit one of the lookouts on either side for a scenic vista of the Spanish Peaks over this colorful picturesque canyon. 
BLM (@mypubliclands) documented this rugged natural landscape for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics; however this wild area is not managed to protect these values.

We'll need your voice of support for Cucharas Canyon and similar wild areas in BLM’s upcoming Eastern Colorado Draft plan revision, expected to be released in October 2018, with a 90-day public comment period.  Stay tuned! 📸s:

BLM’s Cucharas Canyon is a rare intact wild canyon area on Colorado’s eastern plains. Once vital 
for Native Indians, American settlers and ranchers, can now be enjoyed as a camping trip, hike, horseback ride, or hunting opportunity. 
Take a through-hike down the canyon and enjoy the sounds of the trickling river or the cascading song of a canyon wren. Or visit one of the lookouts on either side for a scenic vista of the Spanish 
Peaks over this colorful picturesque canyon. 
Life abounds in this wild and exceptional natural area. The Cucharas Canyon area has high habitat 
and range values for a number of wildlife species, including Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, black 
bear, elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer, pronghorn, mountain lion, as well as valued bird species, 
particularly species of concern, like the scaled quail and bald eagle. 
BLM documented this rugged natural landscape for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics,

We will never forget. Feelings and emotions still raw today remembering 911 and all the people and firefighters who died, remembering all the heroes who gave their life to help others. Remembering all the rest of us still trying to understand. Living by NASA S. Houston at the time, everything was totally crazy after that. Stealth bombers flying out of Ellington Airforce Base guarding our coastlines and infrastructures. No matter what people think of Pres. George Bush, he kept his people of the U. S. together in spirit and in emotions through this time.I will always be thankful for this. 17 years today. Photo at the World Trade Center, Twin Towers.
