FANs of the Deschutes Canyon Area members are watering native showy milkweed in Deschutes-Steelhead Falls Wilderness Study Area.  Diane Randgaard took a moment to water the plants while hiking today.  Please share selfies of YOUR stewardship on our local public lands.  #FANselfies #WildernessStudyArea #MonarchWayStations

A little throwback to last years first buck.  Opening day of ID in a #wildernessstudyarea Biggest body I've seen on a young buck. Didnt hesitate when he jumped up with 2 others; filling freezers before walls.  Looking forward to another great season. Shout out to @huntoutsider for letting me get the first shot this time.  #MDF #MuleDeer #whenishuntingseason #ID #406Life #

Does anyone else ever hike with a cadence of words in your head to keep your feet moving forward? I had a lot of those moments this past trip. It kinda went like this: (sidehill, sidehill, sidehill) (trudge, trudge, trudge up the moun-tain) (go up road, road up go) (grassland, grassland, up, up, up) *repeat* Tired legs, yet feeling stronger all the while. #citizenscience #wildernessstudyarea

I hiked my very first slot canyon today! Nothing too narrow, but the enormous canyon walls did close in a time or two. Spring creek canyon trail was a great 4-mile introduction to what slot canyons have to offer...including a couple of big Great Basin rattlesnakes! Luckily we spotted them in time and gave them plenty of room as they sluggishly slithered off into the leaves. Yikes!

We had a productive meeting with the @mypubliclands Las Cruces office today and will be sending our route changes to @bikepackingcom soon. While the new route misses the heart of Cone Country, it has other appealing features.  Hopefully the amount of hike-a-bike will decrease and it will take riders even closer to our border with Mexico. For the record, the border wall is a ridiculous idea.

Found bear scat that was so fresh we could still feel heat radiating off of it, watched a mountain lion bound across the nearby hills, came inches from stepping on one of the largest rattlesnakes I’ve ever seen, watched countless birds, saw lots of pronghorn, listened to coyotes yipping in the evenings, got snowed on, got sunburnt, walked through aspen groves, pine forests, sage grasslands and hiked straight up and straight down some pretty big country. #alliwantnow #isicecreamandbeer #wildernessstudyarea #wsa #wildernessinstitute

Today is the  Wyoming application deadline. The 2018 antelope hunt is on the calendar!

It's going to be a unique antelope hunt, part of a story on the fate of Wilderness Study Areas.

In #wilderness of the west desert, I saw granite so clearly in communion with the shape of water and ice. Its sharp, unforgiving texture still mingled among soft, weathering boulder faces and cracks in which entire piñon trees grow. Bats flew above our camp at night while golden eagles and jet-like vultures soared beyond the draw above to the sun. As I scrambled up the #granite crevices reaching for the highest dome possible to surmount I thought, “maybe it’s sharp because it doesn’t want to be touched.” #foodforthought

In other news I got the first two best scores at Tetris @the1upcolfax today. 😈

Most people view Wyoming as a shrubland and not a desert. But the red desert region on Wyoming really lives up to its name. I found this horse skull while exploring a little known wilderness study area south of I-80 #adobietownwilderness #reddesert #wyoming #wildernessstudyarea #tumbleweeds

Spring ‘18 staff retreat is in the books! There might be a smarter, more committed, more passionate, and better-looking crew out there (unlikely), but there’s no group of people in the world that I’d rather work and play with every day. From the Kootenai to Billings to Bozeman to Missoula to Helena to Great Falls to Conrad, every one of these folks spends their days doing real, unglamorous, on-the-ground work to make sure Montana’s wild places stay untamed, that our waters stay crystal clear, that our wildlife can thrive. That’s hard work, but there’s not an a ounce of cynicism in this group (about work, at least). Just talk to any one of these folks and the passion is obvious. You don’t knock on thousands of doors without passion. You don’t make hundreds of uncomfortable phone calls. You don’t willingly put yourself in the middle of unfriendly (and sometimes outright hostile) meetings. You don’t read 300 page forest plans over and over and over. You don’t dig deep to build broad coalitions, to find common ground. You don’t walk away from those coalitions when they’re not working out. You don’t recruit and organize hundreds of volunteer hike leaders across the state. You don’t give your blood and sweat to maintain our trails. You don’t fight for the Blackfoot Clearwater; for the Whitefish and Gallatin Ranges; for our prairie wildlands; for the Upper Missouri River Breaks; for the Big Snowies and the Crazies; for Montana’s 44 wilderness study areas; for the Bob, the AB, the Lee Metcalf, and all our other Wilderness Areas; for the wild, untamed, and unspoiled natural heritage that unites us as Montanans. The hard work, the tears, the struggles, the fear, and the frustration of this work are real, but they’re a small price to pay, the best gift that we can give to these wild places that have given us so much. So proud of this crew. 🍻🍻💚💚

The future of Montana’s wilderness study areas is a contentious topic, no doubt about it. Everybody won’t agree on everything, but we believe that, at the very least, all Montanans should have a say in determining the fate of these spectacular wild places. In light of all this back and forth, we wanted to give Senator Daines on opportunity to speak for himself on the matter. This is what he had to say.

In December, Senator Steve Daines introduced a bill that would open five wilderness study areas - nearly half a million acres of pristine wildlands - to oil and gas development, mining, and new off-road vehicle use. This bill would constitute the largest rollback of protected lands in Montana’s history.
.
.
All of this was done with virtually no input from Montanans - in most cases, residents were cut out of the process entirely. Just one county had a public meeting, and it was so poorly publicized that only two people attended. Montana citizens who depend on WSAs for clean water, backcountry solitude, quiet recreation, wildlife habitat, and economic stability were ignored and sold out by “leaders” who are supposed to represent their interests.
.
.
That’s not how Montana works. Our Land, Our Legacy is a coalition of Montanans of all stripes determined to ensure that decisions about Montana’s wildlands are made by and for Montanans, not in Washington for the benefit of a select few. Our wild legacy is at stake.

Happy #WinterSolstice2017! Nevada has some of the best night skies in the country, including the Massacre Rim Proposed Wilderness. Home to bighorn sheep, mountain lions, coyotes, ravens and raptors, and more, this place is not only a sanctuary for the night sky but for all the wild things. 📸 @basinlightphotography #WildWashoe

Notch Peak 9,658' near Delta, UT. I do have a particular bias toward this peak, but today I thought the clouds and shadows gave a nice accent. Not only is Notch Peak a legal B.A.S.E. jumping location, it is also is part of the Notch Peak Wilderness Study Area and home to Bristlecone Pine Trees that are 3,000 to 4,000 years old.

Happy FLPMA Anniversary! Signed on this day in 1976, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act governs how the BLM manages #OurPublicLands, including stunning and rugged Wilderness Study Areas like Buffalo Hills WSA in Washoe County (photo by Brian Beffort). FLPMA requires the BLM to manage the public lands in its care for the present and future benefit of the American people. This means the agency can’t designate all land as Wilderness, just like it can’t release all land for resource extraction. #WildWashoe
Happy FLPMA Anniversary! Signed on this day in 1976, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act governs how the BLM manages #OurPublicLands , including stunning and rugged Wilderness Study Areas like Buffalo Hills WSA in Washoe County (photo by Brian Beffort). FLPMA requires the BLM to manage the public lands in its care for the present and future benefit of the American people. This means the agency can’t designate all land as Wilderness, just like it can’t release all land for resource extraction. #WildWashoe 
We got a dusting of snow on the mountains in the area last night. We received about .25 inches of rain in Gerlach with wind gusts up to 48 mph. This photo includes the Fox Range WSA. #blackrockdesert #blackrockmagic #fbrhr #northernnevada #nevada #desert #mountains #clouds #snow #fall #battleborn #travelnevada #dfmi #getoutside #optoutside #wilderness #wildernessstudyarea #publiclands
