Oh man! Known this dude, Angelo, since Wings days wayyyyy back in the day! Hahaha. Our yearly catch up. He’s doing good things with #UtahBikeyah . #wingsofamerica #dinénation #runners #bearsears
The #BearsEars Buttes and the #Daneros #uranium mine near #BearsEarsNationalMonument , #Utah Aerials flown by: @lighthawk_org Grand Canyon Trust has appealed the BLM's approval of expansion plans for the Daneros uranium mine on the doorstep of Bears Ears and #NaturalBridgesNationalMonument . We did so because we believe that the BLM did not take a hard look at the potential impacts the mine expansion might have, and did not consider any alternatives other than keeping things as they are and the expansion as proposed by Energy Fuels. The BLM now has until mid-October to respond. The BLM approval would allow Energy Fuels to expand the Daneros Mine to more than 10 times its current size, from 4.5 acres to 46 acres, increase uranium ore production from 100,000 tons to half a million tons, and extend the life of the mine from seven to 20 years. The BLM decision also greenlights the expansion of the mine’s waste-rock, uranium ore, and low-grade ore storage sites twentyfold and allows Energy Fuels to construct up to eight new ventilation shafts and associated access roads anywhere in a nearly 1,200-acre area around the mine. Uranium ore recovered at the mine would betrucked through Bears Ears National Monument to the company’s White Mesa Mill. #Radiation is particularly insidious because you can’t see it, smell it, or taste it, and yet it can be harmful to human health for generations. Instead of opening new and expanding old uranium mines, our society should be doing our best to clean up our toxic legacy for the generations yet to be born. We’re working to make sure that this mine does not add to that legacy.

This past Spring @flexibird was determined to turn me into an offwidth climber. Needless to say there was a lot of squirming, bleeding and cursing... But I guess I had a "good time" jamming my body into some wide cracks! 😜 Photo by @bvs.photo
"Everyone ran the final miles to Bears Ears National Monument together. It was a sunny, blue-sky day in March, and 45 pairs of feet shuffled down a road of soft red dirt, kicking up a dust cloud. One woman wore her jingle dress, a garment used in ceremonial dances, its rows of metal cones clinking as she moved. Some still wore running shoes, but many had switched to moccasins. No one spoke. At this point, many of them had been running relay-style for three days straight, from sunrise until the light ran out." . Read more of this excellent article (link below) by Anna Callaghan for Outside Magazine, about how and why several Native American tribes, often historically divided, came together to both organize and take part in the Sacred Strides of Healing. And how schoolchildren ran laps to add more than 1200 miles to that distance in prayer running. . I won't attempt to summarize or speak to the article beyond that. It's not that I don't want to. But 1) while I am proud of the Cherokee blood I have been honored to carry, I come primarily from Irish, German and Jewish stock. Native American tradition is something I am woefully unfamiliar with - outside of the stories friends have been willing to share with me, and those I loved to read as a child, stories that have invaluably informed my own writing. But that's not nearly enough. I can't hope to honor this event as I wish to. I'm just not the right voice. . And 2) even if I could, I don't need to, because this article says it better than I would have. . . https://www.outsideonline.com/2325341/bears-ears-run-prayer-run-native-american-youth-activists . . . #nativeamerican #ute #hopi #navajo #maidu #wintun #newmexico #bearsears #prayer #prayerrun #tradition #honor #tribe #nationalmonument #conservation #nativeland #mitakuyeoyasin #sacredstrides

"There is always room in your life for thinking bigger, pushing limits, imagining the unimaginable." - Tony Robbins🌟...and to be the kindest person you know; be the change you wish to see ♡| Day 2 of the writing challenge: .. ..Write something that someone has told you about yourself that you have never forgotten:... Here is a little bit of set up before I tell you what my coworker told me that I have never forgotten. 💓🙏 I am a respiratory care practitioner (RCP). I work at a wonderful hospital (in my opinion) with coworkers that make my days go by with ease (most of time), humor, happiness, great teamwork, and a satisfied feeling at the end of the day. When I first started on my journey as a RCP, I worked as a respiratory equipment technician. I worked at a bigger hospital, which is a sister hospital to my current hospital (so many hospitals lol). While working there- at the first hospital, I managed all of the respiratory equipment, supplies, and other various tasks. During that time I yearned to learn & grow. I absorbed all of the information I could, so that one day I could be the best RCP that I would hope to be, and always open for more growth. The staff in this department were a hard bunch to make all happy. They bickered amongst themselves, talked behind each others backs, made it harder for people to learn, grow, and move up in their positions. This of course wasn't always the case, but I observed this a lot. People did not stop this behavior from happening and the boss at the time continued to use this behavior himself. This took a large toll on my soul. It made my heart heavy and my days sad. I had a rough time moving up in this department too, even though I did everything I could (in my eyes) to make my situation better, but not all staff were willing to teach and help others grow. So I decided to make a transition to my current hospital where I work, which I have now worked there over 5 years.  Woohoo! 🤗This was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I have grown so much in my career and I only hope to continue to do so! 9 months into... The rest of the writing is in the comments below 👇💓
Bears Ears National Monument. The two buttes on the horizon gave the area its name. After years of planning, discussions and advocacy work from several different interest groups, five different native tribes and a number of organizations Obama, in his last month as president, made the area into a national monument. Less then a year later Donald Trump reversed his decision and decreased the monument with 85 percent. Trump is sued for it. #bearsears #35mm #silverhalides #mauermag #aintbad #bearsearsnationalmonument #onassignment #utah #journalism #rentalmag #broadmag #ishootfilm #analog #olympus #35rc #kodak #analoguephotography #shootfilmstaybroke #pelicula #myfeatureshoot #somewheretravel #somewhere

Photo by @salvarezphoto | Standing watch day and night theses Basketmaker engravings have looked over the San Juan River in Southern Utah for centuries. They are larger than life and this panel wraps around a commanding cliff face. There are hundreds if not thousands of engravings. The Basketmakers (1500 BCE-750 CE) flourished in the Southwest for over a thousand years. The culture spans the introduction of corn from Mesoamerica and the adoption of the bow and arrow. The most striking remnant of those people are rock art panels scattered through the 4 corners region. I was in the Southwest last week scouting locations for a National Geographic Society / @ancientartarchive project looking at art in Western National Monuments.

@roycebairphoto presents the N I G H T S C A P E R Photo Award to ... . @smpetersonphotography . Castle Butte, Valley of the Gods, in Bears Ears Nat’l Mon., Utah. Congratulations to Shaun Peterson. “As part of a 2 week Milkyway chasing tour with my friend Morteza Safataj of @safatajphoto , the Valley of the Gods had to be on the list. Hours were spent scouting this area for the night to come. Morteza was a mountain goat in his previous life, and decided to climb up the side of butte to get a better view of the valley and he discovered the best view of the valley. We spent a total of 2 nights here to perfect the composition by adding the car trails,” says Shaun. Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery. - EXIF & TECH: Shaun shot the foregrounds during nautical and astronomical light and then left his camera on the tripod with the same framing and waited for the MW to align where he wanted it to be. - Canon 6D with a Nikkor 14-24mm. Sky: ISO 6400, F2.8, 14mm @ 25 secs. Foreground: ISO 100, F11, 14mm @ 7 mins and then stacked for noise with 6 exposures at the same settings, then converted to smart object via median stack mode. - Car trails where @ ISO 1600, F9, 14mm, with a total of 4 exposures used, taken between 235 secs and 353 secs each.

Is there a place in your life that constantly draws you back for more? Southern Utah does that to me. When I’m not in Bears Ears or Grand-Staircase Escalante, I find myself dreaming of and planning my next visits to these special places.
Unnamed veterans from the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition raise the colors while the rest of camp is still asleep. — I’ve wanted to share this photo for several weeks now, but have struggled to choose words worthy of this moment. Maybe it’s the likeness to the iconic flag-raising scene on Iwo Jima. Maybe it’s just my memory of a peaceful dawn welcoming us on the third and final day of the Bears Ears Summer Gathering. Either way, to me, this moment captures my love for this wonderful land we are lucky enough to share with one another. I don’t consider myself religious or patriotic, but moments like this- moments in canyon country- bring tears to my eyes with a swelling sense of selfless pride and a deep, indescribable feeling of love, gratitude, and purpose. #bearsearsheals2018 #landwedefend
Looking back on cold as hell days
In present-day Utah, pre-colonizing history is, literally, written on the walls. There is a tremendous legacy of indigenous culture extending to and through the present day. We are responsible, always, to protect that legacy in the face of modern threats to its sanctity. Whether or not the legacy is your own, you can OWN YOUR IMPACT and the impacts you observe. Our crews work to ensure modern-day travelers are aware of what is at stake and how they can limit their impacts. - Jeremy Lynch, Service Program Director for @protectwildutah #MonumentsForAll #StandWithBearsEars #SaveGrandStaircase #protectwildutah 📸s: Isaac Borrego/Jeremy Lynch

From ring mulhy grass to aspen trees, Utah’s national monuments are home to a profound diversity of plant life. Ring mulhy is a clonal colony of grass that grass outward from the center, ultimately losing its center to form a ring of growth. Aspens, too, are clonal colonies. In Utah, a forest of 47,000 quaking aspen trees were determined to be a single organism! With climate change in full effect, the dramatic impacts of overgrazing, and fire regimes on our forested lands out of step with natural patterns, aspen tree communities are suffering huge losses. Our crews work every summer in #BearsEars to protect emerging aspen shoots from impacts by building temporary exclosure fencing. - Jeremy Lynch, Service Program Director for @protectwildutah #MonumentsForAll #StandWithBearsEars #protectwildutah

I’ve always been a strong supporter of environmental conservation.  As a young kid, the many “junior park ranger” programs I diverted our family vacations to showed me the tremendous value that’s held in all levels of protected land. Recently, Matt and I were able to explore Bears Ears National Monument, a stunning landscape in southeast Utah that lost 1.15 million acres in protection as of last December. Today I published photographs of our journey along with my thoughts towards the downsizing of Bears Ears and public land conservation on my website.  I hope you enjoy and I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on the subject! • Best viewed on computer at www.chrisandersonphotos.com/bears-ears (link in bio) #bearsears #bearsearsnationalmonument #monumentsforall

Friends, I want you to take a few minutes to watch this incredibly powerful and inspiring short film from @outsidemagazine called Sacred Strides (link currently in my bio, but you can find it on Vimeo if you search). It's about the unprecedented ways #NativeAmerican tribes are coming together to continue the fight to save #BearsEars National Monument (pictured here from my visit last year). So proud of everyone involved in this, especially the runners who are spreading the word in an incredible way. The battle will continue and you can help by giving to organizations that support the legal fight against Trump, Zinke, and their corporate interests who want to destroy this sacred place so it can be mined and drilled. #27Monuments #MonumentsForAll #KeepItPublic . . . . . . #NationalMonuments #publiclands #triballand #roamtheplanet #nature #SonyAlpha #wilderness #neverstopexploring #idratherbeexploring #rei1440project #wildernessculture #wonderful_places #awesomeearth #alifealive #beautifuldestinations #beautifulplaces #exploremore #neverstopexploring #awakethesoul #discoverearth #findyourpark #greettheoutdoors
@dekarabaw sporting the @lander backpack with snacks. It’s always good to bring a few @clifbar and @haribousa gummies on a multi pitch climb. Water helps too, especially in the #Indiancreek desert sun. Then it’s time to rap. #utah #savebearsears #aacgram #bearsears
The fight over public lands has been pretty hot this year, and Bears Ears has been the main headline. A perspective that seemed glossed over was that of the Native American tribes who used the land long before it was ever designated anything at all. A big thank you to the Sacred Strides crew for letting @outsidemagazine tell their story. Watch Outside’s first original doc and read my feature on the tribes who came together to run 800 miles to Bears Ears, both to heal the land and their relationships with one another.

Bc ima damn hipster from Queens who gets excited when she sees cows 😂 #BearsEars #documentary
I am so very pleased to learn that Willie Grayeyes is again on the ballot for this November running for a county commissioner seat. The history of San Juan County is such that, until only recently, racial gerrymandering had been a consistent and detrimental practice. And while the court ruling to change the boundaries was an important first step towards equality and democracy, I cannot help but notice how eliminating this undemocratic practice has been fought against every step of the way. And it will continue to be fought until election day. The fight for democracy is not over now that Mr. Grayeyes is back on the ballot, but it was a good victory and a much-needed one. Congrats, Willie! What matters now, is how we go forward. We still need every Native person to register and re-register to vote. The way the county had set up voter registration for Natives in the past was highly suspect — as were voting locations to cast ballots. We are watching, along with many others, that the election is free from the corruption of the past. And as voters, we have to make sure we’re ready to go. We have to make sure we show up and vote. We are making history right now, but we need to keep pushing forward to make sure it’s a history of positive change. For many people in San Juan County, this will be the first time they ever vote. It will also be the first time they can vote for a Native for U.S. Congress. For those of us outside of San Juan County, let’s make sure their votes count by stepping up and voting. We can become more than the sum of our parts! We need to share with others our vision of a country that is based on empathy and social responsibility, of a government that protects its people and the environment, and empowers all of us, not just those at the top who can buy it. We have a vision that is clear: we want a country that is based on democracy — one that is of the people, by the people, and for the people....

Alpine granite trad is my favorite form of vertical adventure hiking. As when you crack climb you have to fill in the blanks with your body. ••• It’s the paradox 🔁 of climbing what isn’t there as you slot your hands, lodge your feet and shuffle upwards. Developing the technique requires a bit of blood & sweat and maybe even a few tears 💦 I’m already looking forward to handies this fall in Indian Creek #bearsears as it’s one of the best places to hone your crack craft. 📸 #positivevibrations Incredible Hulk @go.alpine gunning and grinning. @patagonia_climb @lasportivana @petzl_official @ospreypacks @clifbar @zealoptics

The public lands pack I designed/illustrated with @americanalpine @cotopaxi can now be purchased online (link in bio!) Proceeds from the sale of this pack support the AAC’s conservation initiatives such as Climb the Hill and more. 🎒🏜💜 A little under two years ago I decided I had to try to find a way to use my art to support conservation work. I love the work I do during my day job as a medical artist, but in recent years I’ve been losing more and more sleep over the multifaceted challenges which characterize our relationship to our planet’s environment. The current battle around public lands is only a small, even relatively symbolic, corner of the overall landscape of conservation, but it’s one I feel strongly about. My thanks again to the American Alpine Club and Cotopaxi for trusting me with this project, and giving me a chance to give back in a small way through art 🙏 #cragdoodles #publiclands #cotopaxi #conservation #outdoorgear
