"Wilderness is still in existence, but an unknown and precious gift that few take the opportunity to explore and appreciate and respect the need for its protection." Thanks to our friends for sharing their thoughts during #nationalwildernessmonth . #wilderness#wildernessact53#wildernessact @usinterior @nationalparkservice @naturenps @healthyparkshealthypeople 📷B.

In honor of #NationalWildernessMonth Scooby decided to check out the Jefferson Wilderness in Oregon. Ever been? Where the road ends, the wild huckleberries and blueberries begin. Oh, and scat. Lots & lots of scats. We weren't distracted at all. Promise. 🤞🏽🤞🏽
Ruuuuuun! It's the weekend! Cold temperatures are heading towards the mountains. Some of you may be like me and don't have enough gear for the cold. That's when it's time to head EAST. The @theoregondesert has helped create some pretty spectacular, desolate land to tame those wild spirits.
Who says the rugged desert can only be in the American Southwest! #NationalWildernessMonth
September is National Wilderness Month! Where is your favorite wilderness to explore? #CK9Max and #CK9Scooby particularly enjoying getting to backpack in the Rogue-Siskeyou Wilderness in Oregon for a project last year.
Favorite spot this afternoon on Betty's Branch! First time I've seen a raccoon out and about in day time! Also, I definitely got stuck on a log right after I filmed this 😅😅 gotta work on my paddling + videoing skills
Happy National Wilderness Month! So many wilderness areas, like #threesisters are currently experiencing terrible wildfires. Do your part this Labor Day weekend and make sure you aren't burning where there are bans, your fires are dead out, and you're helping other people do this too! #teamwork
In honor of National Wilderness Month and Project Rebirth's collaborated Military & Veteran initiative Project Cohort, please watch this inspirational story about the healing power of nature. Cohort team member, Veteran and Outdoor Research Ambassador Joshua Brandon’s search for life after combat. This is why We #Vote for @ProjectRebirth to #UpgradeYourWorldUSA "It's like you have a little rucksack and you keep stuffing it, stuffing every encounter, every close call, every death of a friend, every one you kill, every death of a civilian. You know, you just kind of stuff that experience into a little rucksack and carry it on your back and it kind of just burns you down more and more, but at least you don't have to deal with it at the time. In the end you're just carrying around this giant rucksack." Josh says that when he was a Company Commander he took his Lieutenants up the mountain and they taught themselves how to climb and the more and more they went to the mountain they found that it was better than any kind of medication or any therapy they were getting at the time and that it really mimics everything that was good about combat.
