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.

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, 
however this wild area is not managed for such. This can change! 
We need your voice of support for Cucharas Canyon and similar wild areas in BLM’s upcoming

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.

This road across the way on Shasta River Canyon is one of my favorite wild rugged wilderness highways. Other than I 5, this tiny road is one of the main links between communities on the Klamath River and leads to the old mining town of Yreka California or Hwy. 96, the Klamath River Highway. Taken from the old stagecoach road.

Trinity Alps in N. California. A big shout out to all the firefighters battling yet another man made blaze. Today this area is covered with smoke so thick and dangerous people are advised to stay inside. Believing in cool weather and lots of rain coming soon.

Scott River reflecting everything green in the Marble Mountain Wilderness in N. California. Just so you guys know, we are completely covered with horrible smoke again due to a large uncontrolled fire south of Mt. Shasta. Since July 5th we have had maybe 2 weeks of fairly clean skies. I'm just saying this is the reason I'm posting older photos as I have not been able to get many new ones with the skies dark. Hope you are reaping the fine rewards of cooler weather and some rain.

Every once in a while Shasta Valley gives you some awesome wierd views due to it's strange landscape and Mt. Shasta which makes it's own weather. This probably was one of the most surreal feelings I have ever photographed in Siskiyou County N. California. Looking into the Cascade Range.

A half limit of dove on Bowie’s first live bird hunt on his first birthday, to the day. Except for one head plucked off, flawless retrieves. I loved watching him put all his training to work. Could have had him limit out but I’m rusty with the ol’ boom stick after a summer of gripping flyrods. Happy birthday Bowie!

I've just returned from leading a photo tour in the Brooks Range. With three extremely enthusiastic landscape photographers, I explored the mountains, rivers, valleys, and autumn colors along the Dalton Highway. We had bluebird days and fog, snow and exploding fall colors, Dall Sheep and Grizzly Bears. Some days we made images for 16 hours straight.

After days of beauty and clicking shutters, I'm not even tired. In fact, I'd gladly turn my wheels north and do it all again. 
To start us off, here is Sukakpak Mountain in evening light .

BLM’s Cooper Mountain is a large and diverse 20,000+ acre area, bounded by the historic Gold 
Belt Byways of Phantom Canyon Road and Shelf Road between Cañon City and Cripple Creek. 
Recreation is popular to the west in the Garden Park/Oil Well Flats area off of Shelf Road, an area 
also protected for its nationally renowned paleontological sites. 
Cooper Mountain offers excellent opportunities for solitude and backcountry experiences. 
Established trails from either side of the mountain take you from the arid canyon terrain through 
mixed-forests, to high elevation grasslands. Take in views of Pikes Peak, the Wet Mountains, or 
the Sangre de Cristo Mountains from the buttes and lookouts atop Cooper Mountain. 
Cooper Mountain’s rugged topography, but also diverse ecosystems, support many wildlife 
species, including Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, mountain lion, swift fox, black bear, elk, deer, and pronghorn, not to mention valuable bird species such as the American peregrine falcon, bald 
eagle, golden eagle, scaled quail, great blue heron, and Mexican spotted owl habitat. 
BLM documented this rugged natural landscape for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics,

BLM’s Cooper Mountain is a large and diverse 20,000+ acre area, bounded by the historic Gold Belt Byways of Phantom Canyon Road and Shelf Road between Cañon City and Cripple Creek. Recreation is popular to the west in the Garden Park/Oil Well Flats area off of Shelf Road, an area also protected for its nationally renowned paleontological sites. Cooper Mountain offers excellent opportunities for solitude and backcountry experiences. Established trails from either side of the mountain take you from the arid canyon terrain through mixed-forests, to high elevation grasslands. Take in views of Pikes Peak, the Wet Mountains, or the Sangre de Cristo Mountains from the buttes and lookouts atop Cooper Mountain. Cooper Mountain’s rugged topography, but also diverse ecosystems, support many wildlife species, including Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, mountain lion, swift fox, black bear, elk, deer, and pronghorn, not to mention valuable bird species such as the American peregrine falcon, bald eagle, golden eagle, scaled quail, great blue heron, and Mexican spotted owl habitat. BLM documented this rugged natural landscape for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics , however most of this wild area is currently unprotected.

Job Peak Wilderness Study Area is a western wildlife success story - desert bighorn sheep were successfully reintroduced to the WSA in 1981 after being eliminated through poaching and diseases transmitted by domestic sheep, which grazed the area until the 1940s. Today, bighorn sheep can be spotted traversing the WSA’s 90,000 acres of scenic ridges and rugged canyons, including towards the summit of Job Peak at 8,785 feet.

Managed by the BLM, Job Peak WSA is part of America’s National Conservation Lands.

Upper Red Canyon, located north of Cañon City, Colorado, boasts a massive backcountry complete with trickling streams, high grasslands, cavernous valleys, red rock outcroppings, and mountainous views. 
Life abounds in this wild and expansive natural area.  Listen for the cascading song of a canyon wren, one of the best songsters of the west.  Or be on the lookout for other iconic birds in Upper Red Canyon, including the aerial moves of Lewis’s Woodpeckers as they catch insects, or the unmistakable great blue heron with its long legs, neck, and dagger like bill, or one of many birds of prey on the hunt, including the American Peregrine Falcon and bald eagle.

Excellent opportunities for primitive recreation are also abundant in Upper Red Canyon, including hunting, fishing, horseback riding, backpacking, hiking, wildlife viewing, and photography.  Rock climbing is also quite popular in this area, particularly in the eastern section of Upper Red Canyon along Shelf Road, which offers first-class climbing on the red sandstone and limestone cliff walls.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) documented this rugged natural landscape for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics; however this wild area is currently unprotected.  Stay tuned for opportunities to help safeguard this #BLMWild place! 📸s: Nic Callero #yourpubliclands #publiclands #colorado #wilderness #wildlands #conservation #canoncity #hiking #outdoors #getoutdoors #outdoorrecreation #recreation #wildlife #habitat #landscape #canyon

Black Mountain in N. California was blue yesterday due to the lingering smoke. But I am rejoicing, not complaining. It was the first day since July 5th, the start of the Klamathon Fire in Hornbrook, that we could even see the mountain. Today the sky is blue with no deadly smoke and particles. See the gate in the fence, the flames were licking right there when we fled with our cats. Our two neighbors helped keep them at bay till the helicopters got there with water drops. So grateful. And cheers for blue skies and cooler temps.

The two newest wild mustangs we brought back from Nebraska a couple days ago. $25 each! Yep.... that's all they cost. Plenty more where they came from.

Eightmile Mountain is one of the wildest unprotected areas in the @mypubliclands (BLM) Royal Gorge Field Office in Colorado.  Its deep valleys, rolling hills, and mountain ridges provide excellent opportunities for primitive recreation and solitude, as well as support a wide variety of plant species and wildlife habitat. 
This 19,000+ contiguous acre area provides high habitat and range values for black bear, elk, deer, pronghorn, mountain lion, Abert's squirrel, and Brazilian free tailed bat.  Valued bird species also take refuge in this #BLMWild area, including the bald eagle, scaled quail, wild turkey, and Lewis’s woodpecker. 
A hike or horseback to Thompson Point from one of two BLM trailheads offers an incredible Colorado viewscape of the snowcapped Sangre de Cristo Mountains draping over central Colorado’s canyon country, highlighted by the Arkansas River and Bighorn Sheep Canyon. 
The BLM documented this rugged and awesome landscape for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics, however this wild area currently has no protections.  Stay tuned for opportunities in October to make your voice heard! 📸s:

Falls Gulch Mountain and the Sand Gulch area north of Cotopaxi, Colorado offer exceptional backcountry hiking and big game hunting opportunities.  The region encompasses the epitome of the #BLMWild 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. 
@mypubliclands’ 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 @wildconnectionsorg 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. 
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) documented this incredible landscape for its #landswithwildernesscharacteristics, however this special wild area currently has no protections.  Stay tuned for ways to add your voice! 📸s:
