Our BLM feature this week is Echo Canyon - Table Mountain, one of the wildest and inaccessible BLM areas in Bighorn Sheep Canyon, and also the largest contiguous BLM area managed by the 
Royal Gorge Field Office (RGFO), containing over 30,000 acres of 
#landswithwildernesscharacteristics . However this area lacks appropriate protections and needs your voice and support when BLM RGFO’s draft plan is released later this year, with a 90-day 
public comment period. 
The scenic Table Mountain over Echo Canyon can be glimpsed from a drive along US Highway 50, 
or better yet, via a raft or kayak on the Arkansas River. 
This incredible area is an important wildlife corridor and habitat for many area species, including 
Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, black bear, elk, mule deer, pronghorn, mountain lion, as well as 
iconic and/or endangered bird of prey species such as the bald eagle, American peregrine falcon, and Mexican spotted owl. 
We need your voice in support of protecting these still wild places! We will continue 
highlighting these important unprotected public lands weekly, in anticipation of BLM RGFO’s draft 
plan due out later this year. @mypubliclands #blmwild #seeblm #yourpubliclands

Shasta River Canyon from the old stage coach road in N. California. The road on the left is the main road that traverses this canyon. Although, they all look like stagecoach roads to me.

As stressed out as we still find ourself after the fire and the extreme heat, we decided to chase some thunderclouds and cooler weather in Shasta Valley. It certainly didn't dissapoint. The smell of rain was so welcome I don't have the words for it. N. California backroads.

Do you have an evacuation plan. We didn't and had just a few minutes to get our cats out and leave. Klamathon fire in Siskiyou County, N. California. First pic, looking back over this house to the flames up the road across the street from our house, waiting for Randy to meet me with the truck. What you can't see is several sheriff cars and people literally almost dragging people out of their homes to safety. Second and third pic after the fire. Over 50 plus structures were burned including many houses just one block from us. Think about what you would do if a fire was raging towards your house at an unbelievable speed. What would you grab, what would be your escape routes. Don't be like us and assume it will never happen to you.

Bighorn Sheep Canyon is a vast scenic and wild landscape along the Arkansas River between Salida and Cañon City, Colorado.  This area is predominantly Bureau of Land Management (BLM) public lands managed by the Royal Gorge Field Office (RGFO), which is in the middle of a land use plan revision that will affect how these lands will be managed for the foreseeable future. 
Over the next several weeks we, @wildconnectionsorg, and other #BLMWild partners will showcase some of the spectacular public lands that local advocates are working to protect. 📷s:

N. California fire update. Surprisingly, they let us back in our houses early this morning in Hornbrook. So grateful. Water on barely and contaminated but on. Power is on. My thoughts are this. Do you have a plan in case of an emergency? We didn't. If you had barely 10 minutes or less to get out of your house due to a fire in your neighborhood or whatever, what would you grab. We packed our cats out and I grabbed their food and my purse. Thats all. We were homeless with the clothes on our back. Make a plan and don't wait. Maybe nothing will ever happen but don't be like us. We thought we had a half hour but the flames were already licking across the street in less than 10 minutes. If you have pets, have kennels where you can get them. Keep your important papers together where you can grab them. Medications..same thing. We had to flee north into Oregon due to the fire chasing us. What are your escape routes. Seriously, think about these things.

First pic was Siskiyou Mountains early Fri. morning with the smoke and flames making a beautiful  sunrise.. Second pic..on ramp to I5 from Hornbrook which we drove thru the flames to evacuate.

Good People, Good Partners: In late September 2017, the Uintah Basin Chapter of Back Country Horsemen of America (@bchamerica) joined thousands of public land stewards to celebrate National Public Lands Day. The chapter performed much needed trail maintenance along the cold, clear and beautiful waters of the Green River just below Flaming Gorge. Volunteers worked hard to brush back vegetation that flourished after a record year of water and re-marked the trail. Numerous other trail riders, hikers, and fishermen along the Green River will appreciate the efforts of these dedicated public land stewards. 📷: BLM-Utah/Dawn Harper #BLMWild #yourpubliclands #npld #publiclandsday #backcountryhorsemen #horsebackriding #stewardship #community #publiclands #utah #greenriver #trails #partnership #bureauoflandmanagement @mypubliclands

Just wanted to let you guys know I'll be gone off IG for awhile. Huge fire, and still burning in our little town of Hornbrook in Siskiyou County California. We just got out with the cats with barely a few minutes to spare before thr flames were there. We are in a Red Cross Shelter in Yreka California. Over 8000 acres gone, big winds of up to 40mph, and hot. We still don't know if our house burned or not. Everything is black like a nuclear war zone including both sides of I 5 almost to the Oregon border. Scared, crazy, grateful to be alive and exhausted.

It's really hard to tell what is a main road and what is an old stagecoach road in N. California. Turns out in this case we are looking across the Shasta River Canyon at the main road. One direction leads you to the Klamath River Hwy. 96 and the other leads to the old gold rush town of Yreka California in the Shasta Valley. We have rock plows that work year around to keep the road clear, especially around a rain or wind storm. Needless to say, life is interesting just going to the store.

I wanted you guys to see a Sugar Pine Cone if you have never been in forests like we have in N. California. The Sugar Pine is the tallest and most massive pine tree, and has the longest cones of any conifer. A British botanist, David Douglas, gave this species the name lambertiana in honor of the English botanist, Aylmer Bourke Lambert. This tree is native to to the mountains of the Pacific Coast of North America, from Oregon through California. The white on these cones are resin and smell wonderful but very sticky.

Cool shot from April. Sitting under Jacob Hamblin arch in Coyote Gulch. Even underneath the arch we were well above the height of tall cottonwoods, but maybe only a third up the canyon elevation-wise. That’s camp over on the right, and the same canyon snaking around the arch from right to left. Really one of my favorite places, this exact spot. It’s not really a spot for thinking, which people tend to like. It’s more a spot that makes thinking impossible except to think of how truly remarkable the spot is. And maybe that it’s more valuable than a f*cking copper mine (which is being mulled over in several locations close by since the Monument reduction). At sunrise a column of sunlight passes downward through the arch onto that camp spot, like a golden pillar of warmth standing in the dark canyon that still holds the night’s cold. It’s a neat place. Check it out.

Mt. Shasta is part of the Cascade Mountain Range which extends from N. California, through Oregon and into Washington state. The first pic shows this beautiful mountain by itself. The second shows Black Butte on the right that looks like a tiny hill, when in actuality it's over 4000 ft. tall. With Mt. Shasta being over 14,000 ft., everything else looks small. The third pic would be left of Mt. Shasta and shows Gooseneck on the left, with Whaleback to the right of it. Both these mountains are huge as well.

Re-opening our California #DesertPlan puts over 4 million acres of protected public lands, including the #BLMWild Chuckwalla Bench, at risk. Chuckwalla Bench is home to desert forests, cinder cones, and spectacular cactus gardens, and summer monsoons bring the area to life. Interlacing channels and canyons filled with ironwood, Palo Verde trees, bunchgrasses, and ocotillo separate expanses of “desert pavement.” Hidden along these channels are occasional springs that draw migrating birds and other wildlife, creating excellent opportunities for wildlife watching. The woodlands are also home to an array of species, including the elusive burro deer. The Bench is also one of the best contiguous tortoise habitats in the California desert.

So life is all about choices, and for nearly 20 years I have continually asked myself:  Do I have enough time? (Definitely Not). Do I have enough money? (Probably not). Do I have the skills? (Um Nope, way too rusty).... But for whatever reason, this year the divine decision to turn “someday” into “today” hit me like a lightning bolt and the only question that seems to matter now is: Do I still have the heart? (YES)!
🖤
So my dear Sweet Darla, you and I might be a little rough around the edges right now, but girl, we are going to have some rad adventures and most importantly—we will have an un-questionable future.

I wish I could show you each and everyone of the magnificent trees that grow in our National Forest lands of N. California. They are majestic. Pines, fir trees, and so many other varieties it's enough to make your head spin. I also wish I could include the smells wafting from this incredible landscape. Sweet, pungent, soft, delicate, intoxicating, heady would be some of the words I could use to describe them. Snags, as we call a tree like this that is "dead" are also found in many places. Snags are illegal to cut for firewood unless they have fallen. They provide habitat for critters and eventually food as well hosting ants, termites and other delectables for the wildlfe. Many times you will see a huge eagle nest on them or even osprey closer to the rivers so they can hunt for fish. Shasta Trinity National Forest.

Sweet, pungent, soft, delicate, intoxicating, heady would be some of the words I could use to describe them. Snags, as we call a tree like this that is "dead" are also found in many places. Snags are illegal to cut for firewood unless they have fallen. They provide habitat for critters and eventually food as well hosting ants, termites and other delectables for the wildlfe. Many times you will see a huge eagle nest on them or even osprey closer to the rivers so they can hunt for fish.

Mountain roads in N. California take all shapes and sizes. This particular area in the Shasta Trinity Forest had everything. At the highest part of the mountain we could reach, this crazy wagon road traversed sideways along the top. The trees were strange and amazing but the high elevation was starting to affect me. In this case a few miles down we realized we would need a higher clearance vehicle so  the mountain gods gave me a break.

Off the old stagecoach road, at the far end of the canyon, we found an old riverbed that had been diverted one time from the Shasta River. Back during the gold rush in California during the mid 1800s, this was a common practice to get the bedrock above water as thats where the gold is. N. California.
