Day 1 of Hike and Sketch: See Your Journey went great!! Elizabeth shared her ideas and techniques through her 3 step process that really helped all the participants to draw with a new perspective. How did you spend your Friday? More info about the hikes this week and next week can be found in our previous post!! #saturday #getoutdoors #discover_mbs #ourpubliclands #itsallyours #icecaves #bigfouricecaves
Sweet poison-ivy-riddled leg shot on top of Gobbler’s Knob. Last week was a doozy. I’m ready to move on.

From above the Exit Glacier, Harding Icefield unfurrowing off to the horizon. This place is an unfathomable beauty, a relic of the ice age, and looking back, a reminder of what an amazing planet this is. Give it every bit of attention you can.

Yellowstone NP  2018
The old saying it's "better to be lucky than good", came to mind on this day.  We spent the last two weeks traveling the west in Monte our van.  With family in tow it's not also easy to wait for the right light, this day was perfect.  Only made the family wait for an hour, haha. #nps #yellowstone #epic #ourpubliclands #protect #vanlife #outdoor #thewest #river #waterfall #wallhanger @sportsmobilewest @patagonia @lost_river_film_co

After a long day of slogging through burned-over forest in 90 - degree temps, this was our reward: beautiful views of Broken Top from Park Meadows. Of course, the mosquitoes were also waiting for us, but at least the scenery was nice!

We’re getting stoked for a trip to Cody, WY to present Sage Spirit by @braidedriver at the legendary Draper Museum @comefindyourwyld one week from today, on the 27th. Cody is on the east side of Yellowstone NP, and the west side of the bighorn basin, a sagebrush stronghold for Golden Eagles (GOe)and Greater Sage-grouse (GSg)The two species have an interesting predator/prey relationship - they’ve evolved together over millennia, and GOe are a top Sage-grouse predator; but maybe opportunistic is a better word. GOe’s prefer white-tailed jackrabbits and cottontail rabbits over everything else, getting a bad rap for GSg mortality. In fact, GOe numbers decline when rabbit cycles drop off and with habitat loss, the latter just like Sage-grouse. While Golden Eagles are the top predator of the skies and Greater Sage-grouse are our iconic western bird, the number one predator is man and our lust for development. My Sage Spirit presentation is a “Draper After Dark” program at 5:15 on Friday, 7/27. Stop by if you’re in the Cody neighborhood and say hi to @marlaofstad and me. #goldeneagle #cody #greateryellowstoneecosystem #bighornbasin #sagegrouse #publicland #ourpubliclands #braidedriver #greateryellowstonecoalition #ilcp_photographers

At the beginning of July we took a camping trip up in the Allegheny National Forest.  The day we arrived the skies opened up, thunderstorms pouring inches of rain in hours.  Our campsite became a pond, lapping at tent doors, puddles floating between footprint and tent floor.  We made it two days and the storms never really went away.  We spent the last night at the Days Inn in Warren, eating pizza at 9:00pm.

Here’s a front moving in from the Rimrock Overlook.

A female Greater Sage-grouse (GSg) signals her readiness to mate, with another in line, a closeup view of what their spectacular mating ritual is all about. Protecting unbroken sagebrush habitat is the only way our iconic western bird populations will stabilize, or at stop declining. I’ve heard folks say “I guess the Sage grouse went somewhere else.” Actually, they die out when we develop their habitat, which is why I sent my comment letter to @blmwild in support of the current GSg plan. You can too, due by 8/2. Protect Sage grouse habitat. Time is short. #sage #sagegrouse #publicland #ourpubliclands #endangeredspecies #braidedriver #ilcp_photographers #audubon

The Wallowas mountains are located in the Eagle Cap Wilderness area that spans across 360,000 miles in Northeastern Oregon, making it the largest wilderness area in the state. There are over 30 peaks that rise above 9,000 feet. It is also the largest alpine and subalpine area in all of Oregon. So many activities 🤓

Where there's water, there's life - but there wasn't a whole lot of either on this trip. The whole east flank of the Three Sisters, from Scott Pass to the base of Tam McArthur Rim, was gutted by the Pole Creek Burn. The greenery is just starting to come back, and most of the creeks marked on the map (including Pole)  were already dry by mid-July. We had a light snowpack this year, but I'm guessing the total lack of shade in the burned-over areas played a major role in early meltoff.

Sunset colors on this lookout were A+. I’ve been noticing this summer (and over the past couple of years) an increased interest in our public lands, and getting outside, and I think that is SO WONDERFUL. Our public lands are meant for all of us to enjoy. The only drawback to this is that I’ve seen a lot of irresponsible trail behavior, so before you embark on your first overnight, or hike, etc, please do your research and learn from others out on the trail with you. Some of the big ones that strike me are 1. Please don’t cut switchbacks in trails. Trail maintenance requires a lot of work and the more we create shortcuts the more trail crews have to do to keep our trails from eroding and washing out every season. 2. If you feel the need to listen to music while hiking/camping, please keep it at a respectful level so others can enjoy the amazing wilderness sounds. 3. If in bear country, keep your food with you please. Don’t drop your pack to hike up part of the trail without taking food with you or hanging it. And don’t leave food unattended at your campsite. 
Great! I understand some backcountry etiquette isn’t clear but I promise you these guidelines exist for a reason and not just to put more regulations on people. If you are unsure about something, ask! But most of all, just get out there and let these beautiful areas fill you with awe and inspire you. ✌🏼💚 #ourpubliclands #neverstopexploring #outdooradvocacy #optoutside #liveauthentic #wildernessculture

In September, 2015, then Interior Secretary @secretaryjewell announces the Greater Sage-grouse decision not to list the bird under the Endangered Species Act in favor of continued collaboration and strong accountability measures. Secretary Jewel was representing the will of the people, flanked by Western Governors, agency officials, a Nevada Rancher, and Brian Rutledge of @audubonrockies . Each of the governors stepped to the podium and spoke about collaboration and the hard work of coming together over a decade leading up to the decision. After all of the speeches were done, I was fortunate to meet Secretary Jewel and thank her for her leadership, and she was so thrilled that the massive collaborative effort led to this unprecedented and celebratory moment. 
Now we get to do it again and tell @blmwild to give the plan a chance to work, rather than follow Secretary @ryanzinkeoffical ‘s plan for “energy dominance” on critical Sage-grouse habitat. The new BLM comment period runs until 8/2 and I aim to tell The BLM to give the current, collaborative agreement a chance to work. We work together in the West, an example worth celebrating. Go to BLM.gov to make your comment, please. There’s a lot at stake and time is short. Protect sagebrush lands.  #sagegrouse #publicland #ourpubliclands #braidedriver #ilcp_photographers #rockymountainarsenal

Thinking of all the men and women helping us fight all the wildfires around the country right now...In 2015, a lightening strike started the Cougar Creek Fire that burned over 18,000 acres on the southeast slope near Mt. Adams. Mother Nature is powerful, often times underestimated, but still shows glistening beauty and recovery among devastation.

After the mudslides...🔥
We set our alarms for 4:30 AM to hike The Narrows in Zion National Park. The reward was having most of the trail completely to ourselves - and it was MAGICAL.
🌱
The Narrows is a 10-mile out and back hike through the narrowest part of Zion Canyon, most of it spent wading in the river. On a scorching Utah day, surrounded by towering red rock walls with your feet in the cool water, it’s heaven. It’s also one of the most popular hikes in Zion (later in the morning it literally looked like Disneyland in there).
🌱
But if (like us) you loathe crowds enough to wake up at oh-dark-thirty and catch the first shuttle to the trailhead at 6 AM, you’re in for an experience that will take your breath away. We spent hours wading through the Virgin River, watching the sun create beautiful colors on the canyon walls as it rose. We made it all the way to Big Spring (the farthest upriver you can hike without a permit) and frolicked in this green oasis all by ourselves before the next intrepid hikers arrived.
🌱
Have you ever hiked the Narrows?

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly.

It’s #fireseason  here in the #pnw 🔥🔥🔥On Saturday, July 14, 2018, a 90 degree day, a DNR Fire crew responded to a report from a target shooter of smoke rising from a stump in the Yacolt Burn State Forest. The stump was being used as a backstop for target shooting. DNR Fire quickly responded and extinguished the smoldering embers before they ignited into flames. As we’ve seen in the past target shooting can start fires under certain conditions. Never use stumps, logs, or trees as targets as the heat of a bullet passing through/into them can easily start a wildfire. Always carry your fire safety gear when #targetshooting on #ourpubliclands

🎶 And then one day you find / ten years have got behind you 🎶 •
The passage of time is a funny thing. I met up with two of my favourite people and t occurred to us that certain events in our lives took place ten years ago. Ten Gregorian calendar years. It shouldn’t be that surprising. Parts of my life in university and in Montana (and Japan!) feel like they happened a lifetime ago, while others feel as if I could grab them again if I’d only reach my hand a little further.

All of this...it's yours! And mine! WE own this! It's here for ALL of us to enjoy, in our own way. No one can come and build a fence and clear a bunch of trees to build their own personal mountain cabin here. Nope!!! No one can spoil this with "development" and strip malls. We ALL own this magestic landscape, in its preserved and pristine beauty. HOORAH and thank God for America's BEST idea, the National Park System. Get out there and explore America's backyard.

To visit Acadia National Park during a one-week tour of New England in which you visit all of the region's states, you have to really want to see the park -- and be willing drive across a lot of rural Maine -- to fit it in.  That's the sort of national parks and hiking hijinks-loving family we are.  That and we had @johnhodgman's Vacationland on audio to lull us into appreciating Maine's stretches of overly forested sameness.
