Quiet recreation on Bureau of Land Management public lands makes a LOUD economic impact. Amazing #MadeInAmerica opportunities for camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, climbing, wildlife viewing and more contribute big to local economies.

#TriviaTuesday ! The Dark Divide Roadless Area was protected from new road construction and associated development under the 2001 National Forest Roadless Rule. What Washington national forest is it a part of? #preserve #protect #wildernessadvocate
Sweet #BLMWild 📷 by @brooksproof. Repost:
Riding that river into the middle of nowhere. The Owyhees were named after some Hawaiian trappers who went down the river never to be seen again.
Trust me, It's good to be seen again. Way better than never to be seen again.
"I feel exposed, like an inventor whose secret workshop has just been raided by the CIA. I'm a trapdoor spider whose trapdoor has been pried open. I'm a fetal pig pulled from its bucket of brine, my inner workings sliced open for all to see."
#quietrec is now #RachelRecs , and it's back this week with Hilary T. Smith's WILD AWAKE. It's about Kiri and the aftermath of her sister's death and it's about beautifully messy people and art and music and insanity. It features a boy named Skunk--"Bicycle Boy, my brontosaurus of love, my love-bison." And the PROSE. This book is so damn quotable and the prose is to die for. Three years later and I still think about it.
New on the blog: my review of ALL IN, the latest installment in the keep-you-up-all-night-reading, unputdownable Naturals series (link in bio). 🎲🎰🔪🎲🎰🔪🎲🎰🔪
Aaand, this series is this week's #quietrec ! Jennifer Lynn Barnes's Naturals series, which is literally a YA version of CRIMINAL MINDS (but better), is so underrated it hurts. These books are quite thrilling and can be gruesome, but they're nearly flawless, extremely well written, and are driven by an incredibly strong cast of characters with distinct personalities. And if you read this series, we might get more than four books, and I need at least five million or I will be sad (it is THAT GOOD), so, you know, READ IT. #bookstagram#bookgram#epicreads#igreads#bookworm#booklover#instabook#TheNaturals#KillerInstinct#AllIn#JenniferLynnBarnes#CassieandDeanFOREVER
