If we listen, we may find the past has taken new forms.
Part of the work to protect public lands involves recording and sharing stories. This summer and fall I had the honor of getting to know Ada Hatch, age 76, one of the only women allowed to work in the field during the Glen Canyon Salvage Project. A high-stakes archaeological survey in the early 60’s of a region forever changed by the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell.
Ada’s experiences exploring the Glen Canyon area for more than 50 years provides incredible context about the future of the places we care about. Ada loves this place so dearly that she made it her home, continues to study it and in turn, helps protect it. The future of any place will always be uncertain, but the intricate layers of a story told with love help carry the legacy of those places into the future.

This series might fit my husband and I well. I run and he camps.
He likes national parks and he enjoys stamping his passport (that he forgot this trip)
I just like to run then eat junk all weekend.
The best part was that this half was on a Saturday. Saturday races are my favorite to allow for evening fun with a full Sunday to recoup.
Fresh from Mead and the WON Bass Open where he finished 13th, Yamamoto Pro @bill_brown_fishing shares how he won the 3rd stop of the Yamamoto-PepperJigs Open this weekend. #tournamentfishing#lakepowell
