Blue skies again, be more predictable and boring Colorado, you can’t
Bluffs, blinds, birds and bands! Scratch that, just bluffs and ice. But a good time regardless taking in the natural beauty. In order to access this amazing public resource, you need public lands and access. Well #LWCF plays a critical role in that and you should call your representative to get it renewed! #mississippiriver #bluffs #hunting #publiclands #lwcf #hunting #thisiswhy #publiclandsowner @lwcfcoalition @nwfgreatlakes @ducksunlimitedinc @deltawaterfowl @cabelas @bassproshops @backcountryhunterswi @backcountryhunters

No lie, getting a gopro has really upped our selfie game😆😆 We're not ones for tripods or asking strangers to take our photo, so the wide angle lens is perfect haha❤ This hike up to Isthmus Peak was pretty intense but the views were so worth it! We were surprised to see so many locals powering up this trail on their weekend- New Zealand is such a fit country!! . . . #lesbiadventurous #newzealand #nzmustdo #lesbiancouple #lesbiantravel #adventurecouple #adventureisoutthere #amongthewild #awayn #nationalparkgeek #choosemountains #exploremore #findyouradventure #womenwhohike #prideoutside #wildernessculture #outdoorwomen #ourwild #rei1440project #travelgram #optoutside #gaytravel #publiclands #mtnchicks #explorenz #newzealandguide #travelnz #wanaka #gopro

Nine out of every ten Montanans have visited a state park, and they play a big part in our state’s $7 billion outdoor recreation economy. Not only are our public lands incredible places to play, they help provide countless jobs to those of us lucky enough to work in the outdoor industry. Now that’s pretty neat. 🌲
You're probably assuming Herb's smile is from catching that big brown last weekend, but actually he was getting excited about listening to @aventuronusa speak at our monthly meeting tonight! . . We're back in the basement room at @8thstreetalehaus tonight. Join us at 630pm for a presentation from Carl, owner of Aventuron here in downtown Sheboygan. He specializes in mountain bikes, camping gear and now, fly fishing gear! Come grab a beer and join in on the fun!

Who else has been out enjoying Tennessee’s public land? Now is a great time of year to get out and take in the natural beauty these areas have to offer.

“Beyond rafters and kayakers, the Middle Fork attracts hunters, hikers, horsepackers, backpackers, backcountry skiers and anglers. This 104-mile stretch is one of the few places in the Columbia River Basin that’s home to wild salmon. Gray wolves, reintroduced two decades ago, also live here among the wolverine, lynx, mountain lion, black bear, elk, mule deer, moose, mountain goat and other creatures. The Frank Church - River of No Return Wilderness manages 296 trails, a total of 2,616 miles—yet, far more acreage has zero trails at all.” — ✨✨✨✨ Link to full story of our Middle Fork journey, and the social, economic, and ecological impact of preservation, in profile✨✨✨✨ @farandawayadventures @rei #farandaway #farandawayadventures #idaho #rei #optoutside #reicoop #reicoopjournal #wildandscenic #wildandscenicrivers #rivers #whitewater #rafting #frankchurchwilderness #historictravel #adventuretravel #whitewaterrafting #publiclands #publicland #preservation #trailrunning #middlefork #hotsprings #middleforkofthesalmon #hiking #trails #wilderness #frankchurchriverofnoreturnwilderness #travel #adventure #explore

Old homesteads and the people who built them. I wonder what their anxiety levels were like.
Imperfections. ° Things in life are seldom what we envision them to be. It's one of the few things that have influenced my philosophy of going with the flow. I seldom expect and I rarely assume. I try to adapt to situations that arise and I believe that every instance will leave an imprint upon me; a lesson. A lesson from which I learn and adjust my views of and thought about the (my) world. It may seem conceited to say "my world," but that's all that I know. We don't and (currently) can't inhabit the body and mind of another. So, my experiences shape my world. ° 📸 October 2018 📍 Glacier Peak Wilderness ° ° ° #northCascades #FindYourPark #PublicLands #PNW #PNWonderland #PacificNorthwest #NPS #NFS #Nikon #NikonD3400 #WildernessCulture #HikingCulture #igPacificNorthwest #IGnorthwest #backpacking #camping #wilderness #rei1440project #wanderlust #TheGreatPNW #Cascades #CascadiaExplored #GetHigh #optputside #GlacierPeak #Dakobed #GlacierPeakWilderness #sunset #starburst

Harvesting a few ponderosa needles for batch #2 . The needles at the end of the branch are the newest growth and the best in the kitchen. While it may not matter too much when infusing into liquor, the older needles can be tough and bitter. No reason not to pull your needles from the newer growth. But, as with any foraging, don't take more than you need, and spread out your harvest to avoid too much stress to any one organism. . . . . . #hookriflespade #forager #foraging #forage #forageforfood #backyardforager #woodstotable #foresttotable #eatwild #nature #liveoutdoors #wildfood #feedyourself #outdoorsman #wildedibles #eatlocal #foragedfood #woodsman #builtforthewild #publiclands #fieldtotable #knowyourfood #publiclandowner #ponderosapine #ponderosa #foragingethics #natureethics #forestethics #ethicallyharvested

While the majority of Idaho is in Mountain Standard Time, Coeur d’Alene and the Idaho panhandle adheres to Pacific Standard. We’re on the far eastern edge of the time zone though, so this means early sunsets. The sun will set around 3:55 pm by the time the solstice arrives. . I’m learning to appreciate the beauty of the early dark. I’m discovering all I’ve been missing: these twilight colors over the lake, the way my breath twirls in the light of my headlamp, and my ability to call on courage - to feel a little uncertain about venturing into the 5:00 pm darkness and yet do it anyway. . Light and dark, they each have value. This is the balance, the tilt of the Earth, the change of seasons. What a gift to experience this whole rotation through space. . . 📸: @schwarz.maurice . . . . . #run #runner #running #trail #trails #trailrun #trailrunner #trailrunning #ultra #ultrarun #ultrarunner #ultrarunning #mountainrunner #mountainrunning #runchat #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #runnergirl #trailsisters #runwithher #mountains #getoutside #oiselleteam #oisellevolée #volée #idvolée #idahovolée #publiclands #balance
The desert is a landscape that truly speaks to me--its wildness, its solitude, its stark beauty, and its ability to clearly present its truly foreboding and challenging condition (at least for us humans). The desert hs always been a place I escape to for rejuvenation when my mind and life become to cluttered and muddled with nonsense. That said, we are heading down a path of aggressive global aridification. Deserts are wonders of nature, but climate-driven global desertification is not wonderful at all. Current Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) studies project compounding increases in global aridification due to a variety of reasons, many of which can be helped in the relatively short term. More thoughtful and sustainable land use practices like increasing efficiency of our existing agricultural lands instead of depleting and moving on. As I type this I realize I've bitten off more than I can chew for a simple instagram post, so I will leave that as food for thought and encourage you to do some research on your own. What are the experts saying? What do the objective numbers show? How can we create reasonable solutions? How can we select our global leaders according to this critical information instead of allowing them to select our priorities for us? All of this is important so that future generations aren't forced to endure a desert planet, but rather still see the desert as a valuable and spiritual escape like we can now. #natureisamazing #desert #climatechange #lastbestplace #publiclands #keepitwild #wearethewild #lifeoutside #seeyououtthere #gooutside #wildernesslife #wilderness #ourplanet #sustainablefuture
A great way to cap off the mule deer season in some brutal cold weather. Gotta say thanks to my buddy @olcal406 for cheerfully strapping on half of this deer for a 7 mile jaunt well into the night to get this guy out. 📸: @olcal406 - - - #muledeer #hunt #huntwild #getoutside #publiclands #keepitwild #hunting #muley #firstlite #seekoutside #keepitpublic #muleyfreak
Here’s the real tea: of all the planning ahead you’ll do this week, the most important decisions you’re actually going to make are where you’ll #OptOutside for Black Friday. Here are a few recommendations: 1. Deer Grove East is a stunningly beautiful home to the prairies, woodlands, and wetlands that used to cover Illinois. Mixed-use paved trails wind through the entire Preserve, with some dirt trails cutting through the woodlands. Put it on your list for a short walk or a longer hike. Photo: @mikenhikes 2. Starved Rock State Park is probably the most popular place to get outside in Illinois. It’s great in late fall or winter, as there is plenty of hiking and sites to see. Waterfalls freeze over in the winter for some gorgeous photos and bald eagles can be easily seen over the Illinois River. 3. Chicago’s Humboldt Park is an excellent choice if you’re staying in the city. Paths wind not only through the entire park, but also around the lagoons and the park’s natural areas. Take some time to explore the neighborhood and the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture. 4. The Openlands Lakeshore Preserve is located in Lake County, just 25 miles north of Chicago. Wander the ravines and bluff slopes for some of the best views you’ll find of Lake Michigan. We’re biased because it’s our baby, but trust us: it’s beautiful and won’t disappoint. Photo: @peteroverholt 5. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is also a great way to enjoy Lake Michigan during the colder months. IDNL is managed by the National Park Service and is home to some of the most ecological diverse landscapes in the world, plus plenty of ways to get outside other than simply sitting on the beach. Head to our Blog on Openlands.org or comment below for more recommendations, and let us know where you will #OptOutside ! . . . . . Share your favorite places to get outside in the Chicago Region by tagging your photos with #DiscoverYourPlace .
July 11, 2018, Oregon: Basalt columns form as the lava cools and contracts - kind of like cracks in a mud puddle. The contraction cracks start at the surface where the lava is cooling fastest, and then the cracks develop inwards as the lava cools from the outside in. . Sometimes the cooling is nice and slow and even - this is how perfect columns like Giant's Causeway were formed. But sometimes the cooling is uneven or from different directions - this forms perfectly imperfect columns like these along the Crooked River.

there’s nothing like a warm and cozy sweatshirt on a cool (or downright cold) day! our national parks crewneck is made in the USA and super comfortable for a cold weather hike. when you buy one, we donate 10% of the proceeds to non-profits that support public lands. #igniteyouradventure
Alaskan brown bears are icons of Wilderness. Living with them isn’t easy but it’s better than not having them. I am thankful for the wild places that we have in America and the wild beasts that make our lives richer. #alaska #publicland #publiclands #wildlife #martystouffer #brownbear #grizzlybear #thanksgiving #kootznoowoo
I love this section of trail beginning the descent to the meadow. The pic doesn’t serve justice to the long rocky path framed in pine and cedar. One of the countless times when the lens can’t remotely capture what the eye is experiencing. It’s the type of scene you happen upon and pause to take in for a few extended moments before adding yourself into the imagery.

Who’s ready for chicken wings on Turkey Day?? Creeksgiving is incoming fast, and we’re helping support the Creeksgiving Cleanup, hosted by @jenny.lemonpie and board member @chris_schulte. If you would like to help out, stop by the Creek Pasture group site between 8-10am Saturday and/or Sunday to pick up a bag, sign a waiver, and carry on with your day, eyes extra open for a mess. Drop your bags off between 4-6pm at the same spot! Many thanks to all those attending and supporting this effort! @jenny.lemonpie pic of @hackattacklife strugglebussing with flair on First Blood 5.10ish, Way Rambo.
Eli didn't wanna hunt during rifle season when it's cold. So he choose to fill his doe tags now. 10/6/18 Burnett County #BucksOfWisconsin  #BucksOfAmerica https://www.bucksof.com/collections/wisconsin #WisconsinMonsters #wisco_bowhunting #WiscoSavage #cowboycoffeechew #greenbaypackers #hha #mathewsarchery #wiscowhitetail #deerwhisperer #deer #PublicLands #publiclandowner
We’re damn near finished up prepping for the Creeksgiving Cleanup, huzzah!.. which means we’re close to hitting the road and climbing some rocks, also huzzah. Thanks for all the messages, we look forward to seeing y’all out there. To reiterate the skinny: 1) Saturday 24th and/or Sunday 25th, stop by Creek Pasture group site between 8-10am and grab a trash bag, gloves, and sign a waiver. 2) Go about your crag business with a weather eye for the micro trash: tape, cigarette butts, wrappers, bottles.. the usual. Parking lots, cliffs, trails, camps, fence lines, etc. 3) Return your bags between 4-6pm to fanfare, a cold one, and maybe some swag while it lasts! 4) wax poetic on hand size, hi-tops, hero/ines, and other campfire whatnot. Hope to see you there 🙏🏜❤️ photo by @tc.bukowski of Still Life FA.
If you’re like us, the idea of a winter night well spent is in a remote cabin. Then there’s our friend @dwyerhaney , who took things a step further and went out and built his own. 📸: @dwyerhaney #wiseriverapparel #adventureresponsibly
What a great opening weekend. Started off opening day with my wife filling her tag in the opening hour on her family's land. My cousin closed out opening day with a very nice northwoods 8 pointer. On Sunday my son decided to post on a drive with his uncle instead of his old man. I guess he made the right choice as the each harvested a buck, his first! I couldn't be happier for him. Now it's time to spend my day off butchering deer, not a bad way to spend a day off. #traditions #huntingfamily #wisconsinhunting #northernrootsoutdoors

Tony with a beautiful 8 point in this final week of Bow Season! Going to look great up on the wall! Congrats Bro!! #publiclands #BuckMaster #WNYHunt #TeamHoyt @tjbone91
