On this #presidentsday let’s remember, as suggested by @goparks, those presidents who took action to create and protect lands for the public in their time and ours. #abrahamlincoln#teddyroosevelt#woodrowwilson#northrim#grandcanyon#optoutside#findyourpark#conservation#amydohertyphotos#rei#forceofnature#publiclands#savelwcf#nps#travelphotography

Why do we chase these tiny little creatures? Because, nature. To get to these fish you must climb mountains, rock hop through a stream and huddle under a tunnel of laurels. You can get caught in thunderstorms or lost in the woods, but you can also go a full day without seeing another human. You’re completely submerged in nature for a day and that does wonderful things for the soul.

We've been off grid for the last few days. We've been hanging out in the Whitney Pocket area of #GoldButteNationalMonument. This place is awesome, it's free, and it's absolutely in the middle of nowhere! It was a 20 mile drive down the worst potholed, washboarded road we've seen but, man, once you finally get here, its freaking amazing!!! We've seen a few OHVs and horses each day, but come nighttime, it's just us and the coyotes. We've loved our three weeks in #Nevada more than we ever imagined we would, but it's time to start heading to the coast.... ✌❤ . . . . . #RV#RVLife#RVLiving#GoRVing#RVLivingWithKids#WhitneyPocket#ThisLandIsOurLand#Boondocking#PublicLands#FreeCamping#Adventure#Explore#Nomad#NoFilterNeeded#OneLifeLiveIt#HomeIsWhereYouParkIt#HomeIsWhereWeParkIt#TheRVIncident

Part 2 of 2: If my husband ever asks you to go backpacking in the middle of February, he means 8000 ft above sea level at -4 degrees F doing a trial run with his new tent. All things considered, the tent stayed pretty warm. Also, a water bottle filled with hot water as a cuddle buddy is heavenly. . . Taylor dangled the carrot of a hotel room with a hot tub in Cooke City after the backpacking trip. It did not disappoint. . . . . #montana#montanacouple#406#406fun#winterbackpacking#backpacking#optoutside#publiclands#publiclandowner#bewildbefree#wesurvived#backpackingwithdogs#skiingwithdogs

Do you know the difference between the types of public land in Colorado? How about where you’re allowed to camp on BLM, National Forest, National Park, Wilderness, Monument and State Park land? With 43% of the land in our state designated as one of those, it’s important to know what you can and can’t do. Check out the link in my bio for my latest piece on @thedyrt about how to get the most out of public lands in our state. . . . . #nationalforest#publiclands@coparkswildlife#nationalparks#blm#nationalmonument#wildernessarea#colorado#rockymountains#outdoorwriter#roaringforkvalley#glenwoodsprings#aspencolorado#carbondalecolorado#gocamping#optoutside🌲@leavenotracecenter#leavenotrace#treadlightly

Stew•ard•ship (Noun) The job of supervising or taking care of something, such as an organization or property. As lovers of the outdoors and people who feel deeply connected to the spaces in which we recreate, we at Touchstone are always trying to find ways to share that love. In addition to all of our gym-to-crag events hosted at various Touchstone gyms throughout the year, our Events Coordinator + Programs Director Ryan goes out to meet climbers in the field and have those conversations at the source. Here’s a bit of what Ryan has to say. Read more on the Touchstone blog! Link in story.

My first fishing trip up North to Wyoming was a success!!! I had to traverse sketchy snow packed roads, frozen fingertips, closed passes, a dozen herd of antelope, and a bunch of Mule deer to get to my destination. All in pursuit of #rainbowtrout and #browntrout to #flyfish in 10 degree temps and 20mph winds. It was an exploratory trip that had highs and lows!! I am thankful for good fishing gear that kept me warm all trip and my old reliable car that is now pushing 215,000 miles and going strong!! Now time to get back to the love of my life @stephanie.l12 and a warm cozy bed!!!! #mypassion#flyfishingtrip#catchandrelease#wyomingflyfishing#grayreef#miraclemile#mindtheredd#optoutside#getoutdoors#publiclands

This past weekend offered us the most prime exploration. We hiked up and down the crags and soaked up the views and blue skies. Not only that, but we were the only souls for miles. . . . And once again it was free. Through these last couple weeks we’ve gained absolute admiration for the amount of public lands and free camping out west. . . . We have so much gratitude for the people who maintain these amazing areas and keep them free and available to all. We continue to be in awe of our ever changing backyard. More to come...

One of my first real opportunities to use my new lens. I've been very busy with life and other things. It was nice to get out and hopefully try and shoot. I was just taking a day trip up to the mountains and decided to bring my long lens just in case I happened across some wildlife. The bighorn sheep were just a little out of reach but I was still happy to be able to use my new lens. This image is fairly cropped but it still have such amazing quality! It's also interesting to be doing wildlife photos with a purely manual focus lens. It's made me realize how much I can rely on a camera's features to get the shot. In the long run I think it will definitely help me out with my skills though. #bighornsheep#nikon500mmf4lens#bns_animals#bns_wildlife#coloradoparksandwildlife#viewcolorado#coloradolife#cpw#coloradowildlife#wildlifephotography#wildlifeconservation#wildlifeonearth#exploreyourstate#publiclands#horns#natgeoyourshot#natgeofineart#nikon#madewithmefoto#keepitwild#optoutside#coloradogram#wildlife_vision#wildlifeig#wildlife_photography#westcliffe#westcliffecolorado#hardscrabble#52weeksofnature#outtherecolorado

Sometimes even a failed herping trip leads to spectacular finds 🌍 . Snapped this pic while herping at one of my favorite spots in town. Although I only found cricket frogs, the sunset completely made up for it! . This location is a pure hidden gem right outside College Station City Limits. Hundreds of acres of gorgeous habitat, yet I hardly ever see other people there. The land is open to the public, but in a very rural area. For sure one of my favorite places to get some head space! .

Happy Presidents Day! We’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the efforts of 26th US President, Theodore Roosevelt. Throughout his presidency, Teddy Roosevelt proved to be a dedicated conservationist,setting aside almost 200 million acres–almost five times as much land as all his predecessors combined–for national forests, reserves and wildlife refuges. In practicing what he preached, he left a legacy of land conservation that now provides 58 breathtaking National Parks in which Americans can go to root their feet back into the terrestrial world. This Presidents Day, consider making a donation to Washington Wild’s continued dedication to furthering his legacy and goals. http://WaWild.org/Donate . . . . . . . #presidentsday#nature#mountains#nationalparks#presidents#optoutside#conservation#publiclands#getoutstayout#wildernessadvocate#outdoors

“America has a history of destroying what is abundant, what is generous, and strong. We forget the nature of true power. The power within is abundance. The power without is greed. Greed is a deprivation of abundance, a hoarding, a constriction of energy. Abundance is an expansion of energy. Abundance is a form of gratitude, a generosity, a modesty, a bow toward others — what we can give, what we can share, rather than what we can take. Abundance is rooted in community, not individualism. Abundance is what is before our eyes, but we cannot see when we are blinded by greed. Greed says there is never enough. Abundance says there is more than enough. Greed closes the door behind itself. Abundance opens the door for others. Abundance is a dance with reciprocity — what we can give, what we can share, and what we receive in the process.” -- Terry Tempest Williams.

Genetics, nutrition and age have much to do with antler growth. I believe this buck is close to 6 years old as I took a picture of him over 4 years ago. At that time he was a pubescent two-point. This past fall he was a mature two-point with a giant body. But, because genetics play as much of a mule deer’s life as they do a human I don’t believe he will ever reach the Holy Grail of a 200” trophy buck. Great to see an old friend, nonetheless. • #muleymonday#muledeer#deer#muledeerhunting#muleycrazy#muleyfreak#liveoutdoors#livewildhunthard#gooutside#thisiswhy#whywedoit#trophycountry#iamsportsman#itsinmynature#keepitpublic#keepitwild#publiclands#backcountryhuntersandanglers#publiclandowner#idahoelevation#idahofishandgame#onthebrinkimages

Is #mountainmonday a thing? It should be. Mountains soothe my soul. Sunrise is the solution to many of my problems. Together they are a powerful combination. . I didn't want to get out of the tent on this particular morning but my buddy said I'd regret missing sunrise it if I didn't get up. She was totally right. I'm glad I woke up for this August sunrise, even if I was cocooned in my sleeping bag for the duration.

I spent the last week backpacking with NOLS through the Galiuro Wilderness in Coronado National Forest with an amazing group of badass women. It was a wonderful and empowering experience! . The Galiuro Wilderness is in the Sky Islands, which I had never heard about until last week but they are super cool. These in southern Arizona are part of the Madrean Sky Islands. Sky islands are literally isolated mountain islands that rise up out of the surrounding desert, just like islands out of water. So principles of island biogeography apply here too. . The habitat changes in a gradient as you increase in elevation from the lowland desert. From lower to higher elevation you can find: desert scrub, desert grassland, oak grassland, oak woodland, pine-oak woodland, pine forest, and mixed coniferous forest at the tops. . The biodiversity of these areas is super high. We learned in the field that these sky islands host half of all bird species in the US, and have the highest number of mammal species. There's so many mammals out there! They have javelina, bighorn sheep, black bear, ocelots, bobcats, coyotes, mountain lions, coati, and even a small jaguar population. And those are just the big mammals! . I feel really lucky to have spent a week learning, exploring, laughing, climbing, hiking, camping, and adventuring with such a great group of women. NOLS was a fantastic experience for me as well and I absolutely recommend them for an adventure!!! . #optoutside#publiclands#nationalforests#wilderness#whatsyoursummit#oldsouthwest@nols_southwest#galiuro#skyislands#arizona#backpacking#womenrule#takeahike#geologyiscool#islandbiogeography#nols . 📸 @flying_cypress 2019

This sunset caused me to miss the last bus back to the lodge but the frigid 3-mile walk back in the dark was totally worth it.

My latest article is about the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. The NAMWC is often considered one of the best models in the world for conserving populations of game animals. It helped bring many species back from the brink of extinction, and was built on 7 principles that we still use for game and fish management today.

Teddy Roosevelt dedicated the Grand Canyon as a national monument in 1908. #presidentsday • • "In the Grand Canyon, Arizona has a natural wonder which is in kind absolutely unparalleled throughout the rest of the world. I want to ask you to keep this great wonder of nature as it now is. I hope you will not have a building of any kind, not a summer cottage, a hotel or anything else, to mar the wonderful grandeur, the sublimity, the great loneliness and beauty of the canyon. Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it." ~TR • • #keepitpublic#northrim#hikearizona#canyoncountry#runwild#publiclands#optoutside#ourwild#grandcanyon#conservation#hike#camp#publiclandowner#arizona#unitedoutside@senatorcardin@chrisvanhollen@repraskin

The western states are at the forefront of our nation's outdoor recreation industry. As stewards of the land, we must be mindful and plan for challenges that come from use and development to protect what brings people here in the first place. In commitment to this effort, we have signed up to officially adopt Colorado's Outdoor Principles. . . . #coloradooutdoors#coloradoliving#visitcolorado#outdoorrecreation#wheredoyouGOCO#stewardsoftheland#landmanagement#conservation#leavenotrace#optoutside#outdooreducation#coloradoparksandwildlife#publiclands#landscapearchitecture#dhmdesign

The term “Public Lands” didn’t mean much to me until I spent an entire summer camping out on National Forests all throughout Michigan. At this point in my life I knew I had to do something to protect & support them. I joined The West Virginians for Public Lands campaign, the backcountry hunters & anglers, & Artemis. I was oblivious & had no idea there were so many incredible people out there already fighting for our rights to explore, hunt, fish & be free. I’m ecstatic to announce if you haven’t already heard LWCF (The Land & Water Conservation Fund) has been permanently reauthorized by the Senate! Around this time last year @briancrabill & I were in the crazy city of Washington D.C talking with representatives... I’d like to give a Huuuuuge shout out to Manchin & Capito for jumping on board & supporting the fund that supports SO many projects that will touch my life & future generations! #saveLWCF . . . #publiclandowner#publiclandownersunited#keepitpublic#lwcf#publiclandhunter#publiclands#publiclandsproud#publiclandowners
