Afternoon shot from one of several visits to Fossil Lake. Check out my feature story about a newly published study that identifies & analyzes fossilized Columbian mammoth trackway on #publiclands at Fossil Lake: goo.gl/CzQhHw
Looking forward to our Sunset City Gulch day hike at Grape Creek Proposed Wilderness this Sat. A few spots remain open. See www.wildconnections.org/events.html for more info and upcoming events. #blmwild#seeblm#wildcolorado#mypubliclands
The sand at @whitesandsnps is largely comprised of gypsum from broken down selenite crystals. Normally gypsum is water soluble and so it does not create sand. Due to the unique conditions in this part of New Mexico however, the sands have gathered to create these gorgeous and massive dune fields.
85 years ago today @whitesandsnps was established. Grateful to have these public lands protected for all of us to enjoy...remember to contact your representatives and let them know how much you continue to support the preservation and expansion of our public lands as they are currently under assault by many on numerous fronts from #bearsearsnationalmonument in Utah to #offshoredrilling on both coasts. #thisagressionwillnotstandman
More pictures from the camping trip to Bears Ears. Showing Grand Gulch (no longer part if the monument). Did you know that some of the anti-monument people think that supporters of Bears Ears never even went there? They claim we're just hippie San Francisco environmentalists who want to socialise America... Well I definitely camped there. It was great. I mean it is public land and we want it to stay that way. But every American pays taxes to maintain it. That means we all get a say in it.
