Rivers edge in N. California. The beautiful Scott River which flows through the Marble Mountain Wilderness was one of the largest gold producing rivers in N. California. Today it is a respite from the summer heat and smoke. The lush forests get thicker as it makes its way to the Klamath River.

In the 4 year drought we had in California, over 16 million trees died. Obviously this is helping to fuel many of the massive wildfires in N. California. Another cause is controversial, because California is known as the environmental friendly state. Massive lawsuits were pitted against logging companies and the Forest Service to stop all logging. Obviously clear cutting had to stop but forests need to be managed substainously, which means thinning out forests and dead brush.  New conversations need to happen soon after so much of this beautiful state has burned.

Even though we were encased in smoke, the Scott River in N. California held us with her magic. Late summer the water gets really low with more rocks showing all the time. Taken from Lovers Camp bridge in the Marble Mountain Wilderness.

Falls Gulch Mountain and the Sand Gulch area North of Cotopaxi offer exceptional backcountry 
hiking and big game hunting opportunities. It encompasses the epitome of the Arkansas River 
Canyonlands with dense pinion-juniper woodlands that roll over hilly and canyoned terrain, while also providing mid-elevation mixed forests in the higher sections to the north. 
BLM’s North of Cotopaxi unit also encompasses rare and vulnerable riparian plant communities and wetlands on the east side of Falls Gulch Mountain, an area so diverse that Wild Connections 
and partners hosted a public BioBlitz here a few years ago to document the area’s rich biodiversity. 
A hike to the top of Falls Gulch Mountain offers incredible views of the surrounding Bighorn Sheep Canyon with the jagged Sangre de Cristo Mountains providing a picturesque background. 
BLM Royal Gorge documented this incredible landscape for its 
#landswithwildernesscharacteristics, however this special wild area currently has no protections. 
This can change! We need your voice of support for North of Cotopaxi and similarly wild areas in 
BLM’s upcoming Eastern Colorado Draft plan revision, scheduled to be released in Oct 2018, with a 90-day public comment period. 
Stay tuned the next few weeks as we continue to highlight BLM RGFO’s most awesome wild areas, 
worthy of administration protection. @mypubliclands #SeeBLM #yourpubliclands #BLMWild

Jones Beach is one of the most beautiful swimming holes on the Scott River in N. California. Nestled just inside the Marble Mountain Wilderness, the Scott River flows through lush wild forests on the way to the Klamath River. Taken today just after I relunctantly got out of the water.

Found my swimming hole today and it was wonderful. Scott River Jones Beach is usually packed with people. Not today. Guess the smoke kept them away. It looks shallow but it deepened out over my head in places. It smelled like jasmine all around and the water was oh so cool in this 100 degree heat. Grateful. California backroads in the Marble Mountain Wilderness.

Colorado's 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. 
@mypubliclands documented Badger Creek South for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics in 2014, however it is currently unprotected. Stay tuned for opportunities to help safeguard this #BLMWild place! 📸s:

Badger Creek is one of few perennial streams in Colorado's rugged Arkansas River Canyonlands.  A hike along this vegetated creek illustrates the great amount of life that this watershed supports: from vulnerable riparian plant communities, aquatic insects and brook trout; to deer, bighorn sheep and mountain lions; to bald eagles, Mexican spotted owls and wild turkeys. 
This incredible BLM #landswithwildernesscharacteristics reaches over 11,000 feet atop Jack Hall Mountain, one of the highest peaks in the area and one of a few spots you can find bristlecone pine trees in the region.  This #BLMWild peak offers breathtaking views of Bighorn Sheep Canyon below and the scenic Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Wilderness across the Arkansas River. 
Badger Creek North is more than deserving of protection and needs your voice in the BLM's upcoming draft management plan. Stay tuned for opportunities to comment! 📸s:

Bear Mountain, located in the heart of Colorado's Bighorn Sheep Canyon in the Arkansas River Canyonlands, is the @mypubliclands Royal Gorge Field Office’s (RGFO) most recent area recognized for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics. 
This rugged and scenic area is worthy of protection.  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 excellent forage, range, and/or nesting for critical and valuable birds of prey such as the bald eagle, American peregrine falcon, and Mexican spotted owl. 
The Bear Mountain region also supports extraordinary biological features, including the largest known concentration of the globally imperiled species, the Arkansas Canyon Stickleaf, endemic to only Chaffee and Fremont Counties. 
However, this #BLMWild area is bookended by motorized areas and illegal motorized encroachment is a real issue for local flora and fauna.  Bear Mountain is deserving of protection and needs your voice. Stay tuned for opportunities to comment! 📸s:

Bear Mountain, located in the heart of Colorado's Bighorn Sheep Canyon in the Arkansas River Canyonlands, is the @mypubliclands Royal Gorge Field Office’s (RGFO) most recent area recognized for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics . This rugged and scenic area is worthy of protection.  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 excellent forage, range, and/or nesting for critical and valuable birds of prey such as the bald eagle, American peregrine falcon, and Mexican spotted owl. The Bear Mountain region also supports extraordinary biological features, including the largest known concentration of the globally imperiled species, the Arkansas Canyon Stickleaf, endemic to only Chaffee and Fremont Counties.

A walk across the pancake-flat dry lakebed at the bottom of Silurian Valley surrounded by serrated mountain ridges provides a truly surreal experience. These #BLMWild public lands are protected because of our California #DesertPlan. Let's keep it intact @usinterior! 📸: Michael E.

Shasta River Canyon in N. California. The old stagecoach road ambles along the river below while the "main" road heads off  above it on the right.

#Monsoon over #Zion #WestTemple (2018.07.15). If you zoom and squint you might see the faint #lightning bolt to the left of the temple cap formation in the center of the frame. 🌩 I like how the low clouds, rain-blurred distance, and cool light on the cliffs make it sort of look underwater. 🐠

Everytime we explore the Klamath River I find myself frustrated as to how I can really show how steep the mountains are along this mighty river. Hope this gives you an inkling. If you pull in you can see part of the old stagecoach road. N. California backroads.

Odd view of Shasta River Canyon in the Siskiyou Mountains of N. California. You can see Interstate 5 both north and south in the distance. This runs through Andersons Grade and is considered a hard area to rrive through.

Even with the clouds this old stagecoach road in Shasta River Canyon was dusty and hot. The bridge is actually over the main road over Dry Gulch. Sometimes I feel like I  really live in a Louie L'amour western novel out in this still wild country. N. California backroads.

Beauty in destruction. After we fled the fire the only way we could go was north, with flames lapping at the road behind us. Ended up in a shopping mall complex all night in Ashland Oregon wondering what we were going to do next. Closed my eyes for a few minutes about 4:30 a.m. and opened them at 5 to see this view out over the Siskiyou Mountains.

Moody day in Shasta Valley of N. California. Wishing and hoping we get some rain soon. Fires are still burning south of us and smoke is so bad I can't see the mountains around us. Definetely our world has gotton a little more crazy.

Throwback pic from earlier in the year in the Siskiyou Mountains out of Hornbrook California. We haven't been able to access this area yet with the huge Klamathon fire that hit us hard. I know this area burned and was impacted but am hoping against hope many of these beautiful tree people survived, and the animals too.
