After four straight days this week of clouds covering the mountains, we have a clear day, and the newly snow covered mountains are on glorious display.

Check out this new study that shows how healthy land and healthy wildlife, which 
support hunting, angling, and wildlife viewing on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) public lands, generate billions of dollars and support thousands of jobs in Western states. 
Colorado’s 8.4 million acres of BLM lands saw 545,107 hunting visits, 326,049 
wildlife-watching visits, and 164,120 fishing visits (in 2016), generating: 
4,595 jobs, $202 Million in salaries and wages, $631 Million in sales, $34 Million 
in state and local tax revenue, and $9 Million in federal tax revenue.

Off-roading with my cousin in Browns Canyon National Monument to get a spot to watch the meteor shower. With all these fires we haven't had a clear sky since May but at least the milky way showed up n dominated. Unfortunately we counted less than a dozen shooting starz around 2am but what better way to spend a summer night :)

It feels like the end of summer is approaching, so a good reason for camping with @dick.kalisek to the banks of the Arkansas River and the Collegiate Peaks.

Looking at the North Star from camp this weekend. Lights from Buena Vista lighting up the clouds in the bottom left. This was a single 20min exposure.

The water is rising and the weather is warm! And yes, there are guests in that boat....it’s a great time to go rafting!

The river’s edge in Browns Canyon National Monument today. 
The beautiful water mark stripes illustrate just how low the river is as we edge into spring. How much will it rise with this winter’ low snowpack?
And it was fun making our way along the edge for a ways — you definitely can’t always do that!

"The protection of the Browns Canyon area will preserve its prehistoric and historic legacy and maintain its diverse array of scientific resources, ensuring that the prehistoric, historic, and scientific values remain for the benefit of all Americans. The area also provides world class river rafting and outdoor recreation opportunities, including hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, mountain biking, and horseback riding." “Conservation is a truly American idea. The naturalists and industrialists and politicians who dreamt up our system of public lands and waters did so in the hope that, by keeping these places, these special places in trust – places of incomparable beauty, places where our history was written – then future generations would value those places the same way as we did. It would teach us about ourselves, and keep us grounded and keep us connected to what it means to be American. And it’s one of our responsibilities, as Americans, to protect this inheritance and to strengthen it for the future.” Barack Obama
February 19, 2015

On Sunday we hiked at a brand new National Monument - Brown's Canyon - that President Obama established during his last year in office.  Much of the Monument is only accessible by boat (via rafting and kayaking on the Arkansas River), but the hiking trail we took was really nice.  I enjoyed the combination of interesting rock formations and pinyon trees spread out in the foreground, with the beautiful fourteen-thousand-foot peaks of the Collegiate Range looming in the background.

The Monument, however, was difficult to find.  The last time I drove in the area, there was a sign on the main highway indicating the gravel entrance road that leads 2.5 miles to the Monument.  However, this time, the sign had been completely removed and there were none on the gravel road.  The only sign I could find was the one depicted here, at the entrance to the Monument.  I wonder if the Trumper dude told the BLM to remove it?

In any case, I'm looking forward to returning and exploring some more . . .

Originating in the Collegiate Peaks of Colorado, Chalk Creek flows east nearly 30 miles through the San Isabel National Forest to join the Arkansas River near the town of Nathrop. The creek is found sandwiched between Mount Princeton to the north and Mount Antero to the south. As one gateway to the Colorado Trail, Chalk Creek provides great opportunities for hiking and camping. // View of Chalk Creek near Chalk Creek Trailhead // Photo by @jen_pelz

Yesterday, I ran through the eclipse.  Nature's chiaroscuro reflecting the solar eclipse through the branches of a tree.  The tiny slivers of light...the height of The moon giving the sun a high five.  #protectournationalmonuments #trailrunning #brownscanyonnationalmonument
If you haven't had a chance to go down the river this summer, it's not too late. Flows are abnormally stable for this time of year. Get out there! #brownscanyon #brownscanyonnationalmonument
