"Didn't really know what to expect as the last dispersed campsite we went to was pretty full. We pulled up to the area and wow... lake front view! There were quite a few spots open near the lake and within the woods. People were scattered everywhere and still plenty of spots left to set up camp. All in all, it was pretty quiet too."⠀

"We stayed a week here in a 26 foot travel trailer and have loved every minute of it. No nothing but a fire ring so be sure to bring water and please pack out what you pack in. The sites here are clean with no trash laying around. Let's keep it that way to show our appreciation for these free Sites!"

"Amazing location with incredible views. I got on last dollar Rd from highway 62 and it was a bumpy ride up past last dollar mountain and then down towards telluride. There were no camping opportunities until you decsend towards the telluride area. I had a beautiful open field crowned with Aspen's all to myself. If you continue on down the road there are another handful of spots with the veiws this spot is known for. 4wd not necessary but I was happy for my high clearance with the direction I came from. Highly recommend a visit."

So this last Saturday we celebrated the 2nd #coloradopubliclandsday. Proud #publicland owners all across the state got out, enjoyed, and supported the wonders of #Colorado. We have 24 million stunningly beautiful, ecologically and geographically diverse acres of federally managed public lands here. It doesn't stop there, though. We also have @coparkswildlife managing our state lands and wildlife across all land, as well as countless partner groups, environmental education groups (like @leavenotracecenter), #advocacy groups (like @protectourwinters, @accessfund and @wildernesssociety), and volunteer corps (like @colorado14ersinitiative), along with #local governments all over the state doing their part in supporting the natural beauty, valuable ecosystems, and #outdoor recreation opportunities found here. In fact, Colorado is the only state in the country that dedicates its entire lottery fund to recreation and #conservation (and thanks to SB18-066, this is now the case until at least 2049!). The funding breakdown is as follows: 10% goes to @coparkswildlife, 40% goes to the Conservation Land Trust, and the remaining 50% goes to @greatoutdoorscolorado. This is spectacular forward thinking and appreciation of the value the natural #environment has to our state. So thank you,  @govofco -- we appreciate your support of our land (and yes, it's your land too!) #optoutside #nature #ourwild #coloradophotographer #mountains #rimby #greatoutdoors

“Here is your country.  Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children.  Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of it’s beauty, it’s riches or it’s romance.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt .

On Colorado Public Lands Day this is a good reminder that we are all in it together. Whether you use the trails to observe nature, to run 100 miles through the wilderness or to hit jumps and berms on your bike, we (all recreationists) must remember to be friendly to other users. Everyone has a right to public lands and should have opportunities to enjoy nature each in their own way—from mushroom foragers to moms with strollers to freeride mountain bikers. We can coexist through education, awareness and respect and need to find our common ground so that we can protect precisely that. ••• #ridewithrcr #routtcountyriders #foodforthought #giverespecttogetrespect #coloradopubliclandsday #userspecifictrails #trailmanners |  #Repost @benicesayhi

In 2016, Colorado became the first state to create a holiday recognizing public lands - but is that really all that surprising?

Today is Colorado’s Public Lands Day, and our state has 24 million acres of public lands to enjoy. Rocky Mountain National Park is one of my favorites to explore - especially the hike to Sky Pond, pictured above. 
If you’re the adventurous type looking to plan your next getaway, you won’t be disappointed here!

I'm a visitor here. These landscapes are not mine; they're unfamiliar and mysterious and new. And yet in a very real sense I belong to them, and they are mine because they are everyone's. Ours to respect and enjoy and protect. Stewardship can be big, and it can start simple. Feel your connection and kinship with the land and animals around you and keep your hearts open wide, my friends. #coloradopubliclandsday #rainyrun

I'm a visitor here. These landscapes are not mine; they're unfamiliar and mysterious and new. And yet in a very real sense I belong to them, and they are mine because they are everyone's. Ours to respect and enjoy and protect. Stewardship can be big, and it can start simple. Feel your connection and kinship with the land and animals around you and keep your hearts open wide, my friends. #coloradopubliclandsday  #rainyrun  . . . . . . . #plogging  #mountains  #nature  #naturelovers  #environment  #landscapes  #sheisnotlost  #mountainlove  #trailrunning  #trailrunner  #runtheworld  #staywild  #staygrateful  #amazingview  #sheruns  #moments  #instanature  #choosemountainswomen  #skies  #runnerscommunity  #colorado  #outdoors  #landscapelover  #runnersofinstagram  #getoutstayout  #awakethesoul  #thegreatoutdoors  #running

Today, and every day, we salute the lands we live to roam, protect, and advocate for—be it the outdoor brands who comprise our markets or days spent volunteering or traversing Colorado's wild lands. #ColoradoPublicLandsDay #DenFleaFavs

I LOVE THIS STATE SO MUCH💚 Happy #ColoradoPublicLandsDay everybody! Working for Aspen Parks and Rec has been a dream come true and given me an even greater appreciation for this beautiful state and all it has to offer. Check out this website and video highlighting how awesome Colorado’s public parks, forests, rivers, lakes, mountains, grasslands, and deserts are! (link in bio) Then get out there and go celebrate the day!🌞

This weekend, Alpine Achievers Initiative partnered with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado to provide fun outdoor recreation programming for the kids attending the Mike O’Brien memorial project near Crestone, CO. 
Check out this incredible view of the Sangre De Cristo mountains we get to enjoy all weekend!

'In May 2016, Colorado became the first state in the nation to establish a state holiday for our public lands. The third Saturday in May is now recognized as Colorado Public Lands Day, a day to celebrate how our public lands are central to our economy and our quality of life.'

It’s Colorado Public Lands Day! Time to celebrate being the first state to establish a holiday for our 24 million acres of public land. With over 200,000 people working in the outdoor recreation industry, including my dad, and 13 million visitors annually to state parks, Colorado is all about the outdoors and that’s why we live here. Most of our adventures and best memories take place on these protected lands, like finding random rocks shaped like giant dog paws! 🐾 ⛰

It’s a bit chilly this year for #coloradopubliclandsday, good thing #publiclands are open 365 days a year! #lincolnhillscares #usfs #nationalforests #publicland @usinterior
Today is the 2nd #coloradopubliclandsday. Let's talk about that--#publicland. This concept and its benefits and uses mean different things to different people; state by state; region by region. I think #Colorado and all of us who live in and love this state have made it clear that we value our public lands--not necessarily for one activity or purpose over the other, but rather for the tangible and intangible collective benefits they provide. Over 1/3 of Colorado is comprised of public lands. #Nationalparks ranging from the iconic peaks of @rockynps to the surreal dunefield of @greatsanddunesnps; from the dark depths of @blackcanyonnps to the dizzying structures of @mesaverdenps. Our #nationalforests contain many of the famous mountain vistas, aspen stands, wildlife and general #wilderness we love to have as our daily backdrop. Our #wildlife refuges are critical for supporting and preserving the biodiversity o ye range of ecosystems need to function. Those are just a couple of examples of the extreme range in landscapes, agencies, and benefits of their protection. Whether you hike, camp, fish, hunt, view, paddle, peddle, skin up or just ski down, or even just live in Colorado, the benefits of OUR public lands are clear. Our state #economy is booming because of our relationship with these lands. Just the outdoor #recreation industry alone contributes nearly $2 billion just in tax revenue! Not only that, but nearly 230,000 jobs are within the outdoor recreation realm. So let's go, Colorado -- let's continue to lead the charge in valuing, protecting, and thoughtfully managing our public lands well into the future. Examples must be set and we can he the ones to set them for the whole country.

Saturday, May 19 is Colorado Public Lands day! Get outside and celebrate your lands!

The state’s 24 million acres of public land are a defining part of our heritage, identity, and unique way of life.

Today we are celebrating Colorado Public Lands Day! We understand that public lands are vital for our community, humanity, sanity, and economy, and for this we strive to support education, advocacy, and stewardship around our public lands. As an outdoor retail store, Bristlecone is in the unique position to often be the sole point of contact for backcountry users before they head out, and because of this we feel that it is important to educate customers not only on the gear they are purchasing, but also on the importance of environmental stewardship and backcountry ethics so that we can all continue to safely and responsibly enjoy our public lands for years to come.
Hike with us and @wildernessworkshop today up the Arbaney Kittle Trail from 1-4pm and then join us for happy hour with discounted drinks and snacks at @capitolcreekbrewery from 4-6pm! And if you're lucky you might even score some free @darntoughvermont socks! 📸: @brianstixmarsh .
