My last stop before San Francisco was Mammoth Lakes, a place I had been wanting to check out for a long time. I planned out a 17 mile-ish hike for myself in the #anseladamswilderness that included both the #pct and the #johnmuirtrail , and approximately 6 lakes. . . . #California #wildcalifornia #californiaoutdoors #naturalcalifornia #californiagram #caligram #californialife #nationalforest #forestservice #publiclands #usfs #inyonationalforest #rei1440project #optoutside #explore #neverstopexploring #womenwhoexplore #roadtrip #wildernessnation #alltrails #thediscoverer #hikerslist #wander #wanderlust #travel #travelgram #hikingtheglobe
I am realizing the focus doesn’t have to be on any action in particular when going after a dream. The details seem to matter less than they did before starting. ⠀ If the dream is important enough and you work towards it consistently and believe in it fully, there is no other option. It must eventually come true; a reality is created through thoughts and actions. ⠀ Don’t obsess too much over the specific details. Accept and appreciate what you can do right now. Go through the motions, remember why it matters so much, and love the process along the way.

Got a couple fun days of burn prep in before vacation tomorrow!
We just hit 175,000 water bottles recycled! Our sister company #TripleFlare has been recycling for @u.s.forestservice fire camps in Oregon and California since August. Way to go team!! 🙌♻️ #firecamp #klondikefire #DeltaFire #taylorcreekfire
View from the top of Mt. Kahuzi in Kahuzi-Biega National Park located in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Since 2015 the U.S. Forest Service has been training local communities and park staff on rehabilitating hiking trails, such as the Mt. Kahuzi trail, to promote ecotourism within the park home to the endangered Grauer's Gorilla.

Aspens in Kaibab National Forest Arizona! Right now it's pre-peak in the Williams Ranger District and more leaves are changing daily. Look for patches of fall color in high elevation areas on the tops of mountains and knolls. Leaf-peepers will want to check out Bill Williams Mountain and Kendrick Mountain. . . . #arizona #leafpeeping #leaves #fallleaves #forest #autumn #fallcolors #treetops #trees #sky #forests #naturephotography #sunrays #outside #gooutdoors #adventure #falladventure #travel #hiking #mountains #nationalforest #forestservice

The end of an amazing season. I'm gonna miss my beautiful crew. Here's to a great winter! #forestservice

Today marks the 8th day of the wild horse gather. It’s my 3rd day working with public informations. I got to go up to the trap site yesterday to watch the helicopter pilot herd horses into temporary pens. It’s been a great opportunity to see how hard my coworkers work to ensure the public in informed. #intern #publicinformation #forestservice #horses #helicopter #imexhausted #peopleasklotsofquestions #modoc

Mt Adams towers over Takhlakh Lake on the old Columbia National Forest, #Washington back in 1937. A fisherman dips his line into the mirror image waters in this timeless shot. #Throwback #history #takhlakhlake #giffordpinchotnationalforest #forestservice #lakes
My uncle was an amazing man who will be remembered for his leadership and dedication to serve. He is greatly missed.

In today’s episode of “What is Allison Actually Doing with Her Life?”: Extracting and cleaning hundreds of thousands of Douglas Fir (Psuedotsuga menziesii) seeds. We have been receiving them in large shipments. They come in “lots” which are assigned different numbers because those trees have different genetics. I decided to video each step. Disclaimer: I don’t really know the technical terms of these machines, or whether they actually have a name. I just go with it. 1. Tumbling. We put bags of each lot in one at a time and throw ‘em around to get the seed out. 2. Shake ‘em. There’s lots of debris that needs to be separated from the seed. So they go through different screens to separate them. 3. De-wing. This machine gradually takes the seed and smacks it around gently to take off the wings on the seed. 4. Clipping. This machine is designed to separate “good” seed from “bad” seed. The bad seed is lighter than the good seed because there’s nothing inside of them. They’re just shells (or have nasty little larvae in them). 5. Blowing. We use the power of a vacuum to further separate the good and bad seed. And from there we pick out the smaller debris by hand and ship off the seed to local national forests for restoration. Sorry about how loud the videos are; it’s why I wear ear-pro through all of this.

While winter is on the way I can’t help but chase the last few hours of day light when the forest is ablaze with color, the dirt is good, the tourists are gone, and the air is crisp and cool. 😎🍁🚵‍♂️ . . . . . #chasingdaylight #fallcolors #larchfest #chrispair #mountainbike #singletrack #optoutside #publiclands #sunset #ridebikesdrinkbeer #publiclandsinpublichands #outdoors #terrenetires #ridechunk #timelapse #sunrays #eskercycles #elkat #tallylakeoverlook #forestservice #montana #flatheadamb #lovinlife

By far one of my favorite campsites Boulder Basin. The top of a mountain off a dirt trail in Idyllwild. The entire campsite was empty except one other group. It was wonderful. Lots of pictures were takes that night. . . . . . #idyllwild #boulderbasin #california #californiaadventure #sanjacinto #forest #forestservice #usforestservice #californiaforest #treesome #trees #mountains #mountaintop #brakelights #redlight #lights #nightsky #nightskyphotography #photo #canon #longexposureshots #coffeencampfires #traveler_vision #space #stars #nightstars #wander #gettinglost #adventure
Flashback to a wildfire in The northwest corner of Yellowstone, this one was small and wasn’t being actively managed mostly because of its location and the challenges associated with accessing it plus it didn’t pose a serious threat to human life. It was best to let this one burn itself out. . Fire is necessary in the regeneration of forests around the world and as another fire season comes to a close out west, very thankful for all those at the @u.s.forestservice who seek out the danger year after year to keep us safe.

Today, we’re celebrating. Why? Well, for one, there are now more than 1500 of you! Thank you for following us. To bring new followers up to speed, we’re the Sitka Conservation Society, a local, grassroots organization based in Sitka, Alaska—in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. Not only do we focus on conserving the natural environment of the Tongass, but we also believe that building sustainable and resilient communities across Southeast Alaska is a crucial part of our mission. . The other reason we’re celebrating is because hundreds of you—thousands nationwide—submitted comments to the Forest Service to inform the alternatives they present for the new Alaska Roadless Rule. The new rule could open up ecologically crucial areas of the Tongass to further old growth logging, which would in turn affect the fishing and tourism industries that depend on roadless areas. We don’t know what will happen, but we do know that the Forest Service has a lot of public input to take into consideration. Thank you to everyone for submitting your comments and helping to shape the future of the Tongass and our region. . Have any questions about SCS or want to get in touch? Shoot us a DM or email us at info@sitkawild.org . 📸: @bberryphoto
