Really nice weather calls for an epic ride! Sherrard Point on top of LarchMountain, rode there last year this time, beautiful meandering forest road! Would've been nice to let you know itsCLOSED ONLY A COUPLE MILES FROM THE TOP! Oh, well the first 20miles were rad. I wasn't the only one disappointed, #redneck #justice #therightroarmbears #motoguzzi #livetoride #ridetolive #usforestservice #itsforyourowngood #larchmountain #sherrardpoint #pnw #mthoodnationalforest
After cutting line for the whole day... #crew5 #usforestservice #wildfirefighter
It's a beautiful day to get out and explore the Steigerwald National Wildlife Refuge. In addition to its diversity of birds, it's also home to over 20 species of mammals, 15 reptile/amphibian species and a wide variety of insects, fish and plants. Great place to explore! 📷 @bpartin83
I felt like I was looking at a painting when I came upon deer resting in the grass after some rain showers had passed through. It was so peaceful that I couldn’t help watching them until they were joined by more deer crossing the road and they slowly walked through the forest grazing along the way. #rimcountry #mogollonrim #arizona #hike #hiking #hikingtrail #explore #arizonahikersguide #hikeaz #hikearizona #instagramaz #divine_deserts #wow_america_landscape #photo #naturelovers #nature #nature_perfection #dreamjourneyexplore #forest #tontonationalforest #adventurepayson #trees #pinetree #pinetrees #payson #deer #outdoors #muledeer #usforestservice #wildlife

Ray taking a look to see how his gunning cut is going to look as he starts into a burning snag. To add to the fun there was also a large hornet's nest up in it. This was on the final fire of the 2016 season in Wyoming. It won't be long and the crew will be rolling again and we'll have some current photos again for you. If you'd like to see more photos of the crew, follow along on our page this year. 📷:Kyle Miller @kwmiller945
It's hard to picture the PNW without thinking of ferns. A rotting log, a living trunk, the side of a cliff...these native plants grow everywhere here! Did you know they reproduce via spores? The spores look like small dots on the underside of the leaf🌿

The Pacific Crest Trail turns 50 this year! I feel so fortunate to be able to experience this incredible trail for myself. It has surpassed all my expectations. 😍 . . . #pacificcresttrail #pct2018 #pcta #nationalscenictrail #pct #takeahike #longdistancehiking #thruhiking #getoutside #outside #usforestservice
One of my coworkers mysteriously left this sticker in my locker. I love it and how it just appeared. Like Sasquatch. #TheSearchIsOn #Sasquatch #BigFoot #USForestService #USFS #DepartmentOfHideAndSeek #HidesRealWell #PeekABoo #Surprise

Did you know that one of the main sources for Dakota and Ojibwe and Ho-chunk Nations’ lacrosse sticks is threatened with extinction? The emerald ash borer is an invasive species brought by cargo ships from across the Pacific Ocean and is wiping out Ash trees (baapaagimaakoog) across our continent. By learning about stick-making, our youth learn about protecting or forests! #thakâpsičapi #usforestservice #baagadowewin #caabnąikisik #lacrossesticks #invasivespecies #ashtrees #greatlakes #baapaagimaakoog
Day 113 #365daysofselfcare Today it finally happened! Our class full filled our goal of planting trees with the US Forest Svc for our Piney and the People Genius Hour Project! Our class of 22 kids and 14 adults planted 280 saplings in the Tahoe National Forest above Foresthill! It was an amazing day of teamwork, first, and smiles! Planting these trees will help diversify the forest and have healthy trees that won’t be as susceptible to bark beetles! Completing this project in the forest I Love is self-care. Being out in nature and helping my class find excitement in community service... that’s be ultimate feel-good day! Now- water and rest! Thank you @tahoenationalforest and Kelly Bowdoin! #usforestservice #geniushour #placeracademy
Coronado Youth Corp was back at it again. This time 12 crew members hiked into Eisenberg Canyon in the Santa Rita Mountains on the Arizona Trail. This trip required lots of digging, relocating of many massive boulders, fallen tree trimming, and trail widening, all under an intense sun. The crew was put to the test, but did not back down. It was a wonderful success. Special thanks to #arizonalottery , #tep , and #usforestservice for all of their support. This would not be possible without you. #aztsos #aztrail #outdooreducation #youthoutdoors , #hikearizona #tucson #thisiswhateducationlookslike #trailwork #CYC

If you’re ever in Southern Illinois you must check out Shawnee National Forest. This part of the state is full of adventure - we hiked Garden of the Gods and Rim Rock. Plus earned a Junior Forest Ranger badge! Check out tips for visiting the area, hiking with kids and earning that badge on ChristieDedman.com (link in bio). Thanks to Ranger Rebecca for making our National Forest visit extra special! Swipe to see some of our trip! : : : : #shawneenationalforest #juniorranger #juniorrangerprogram #hiking #optoutside #southernillinois #juniorforestranger #gardenofthegods #nationalforest #bigfoot #hikingwithkids #outdoors #onlyinillinois #shawnee #getoutside #roadschool #homeschool #usforestservice #parkranger #leavenotrace #travel #illinois
We celebrated Earth Day and the 3rd Anniversary of our 1st Natural Restorations Cleanup by partnering with the Arizona Chapter of @mtnchicks for a Fossil Springs Cleanup. We hiked Fossil Springs Trail with an amazing group of volunteers, picking up 71.65 pounds of scattered trash found along the trail, at the Springs, and at several swimming holes. Fossil Creek is part of The National Wild and Scenic Rivers System that was created by Congress in 1968 to preserve certain rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future generations. ⠀ *⠀ Once we arrived at swimming hole by the cave we enjoyed lunch, exploring the area, picking up trash, and the gorgeous scenery. We hiked all of the trash out, collecting more trash along the way, and hopefully inspiring all of the hikers we passed on the trail to pack out everything they were packing in. ⠀ *⠀ This was our 2nd collaboration with @mtnchicks and we had an amazing time! It was great seeing familiar faces and making new friends. Make sure you join a Mountain Chicks chapter near you so you don’t miss out on these amazing adventures! Shout out to @kel_ofthewild and @shelovesarizona for helping us make this possible!⠀ *⠀ We would like to thank Danielle Boulais, Wild & Scenic Rivers/Wilderness Coordinator with the @u.s.forestservice ⠀ Coconino National Forest, Red Rock Ranger District for all of her support & for being a part of today's event! We learned so much from her about Fossil Springs. ⠀ *⠀ Thank you to @americanrivers , @copperpoint14 , @desertmonsterstours , LeBaron & Carroll LLC, @odyseaaquarium Foundation, @srpconnect , & everyone at the @u.s.forestservice Coconino National Forest, Red Rock Ranger District for your support of our overall program that allows us to take on projects like this. ⠀ *⠀ #nationalwildandscenicriver #earthday #earthday2018 #trailcleanup #fossilsprings #trashcleanup #mtnchicks#DontTrashArizona #trashtag #mtnchicksdoitbetter #optoutside #volunteer #stewardship #CoconinoForest #RedRockDistrcit #azhiking #arizonahiking #hikearizona #hiking #naturalrestorations #packitinpackitout #usforestservice
It seems appropriate to share a photo of Latourell Falls on this Earth 🌏 Day. Located in the Columbia River Gorge which is the largest scenic area in the U.S. This is just one of several beautiful waterfalls in the area. If you are ever in Portland, the Gorge is just a quick 40 minute drive so check it out.
Woohoo National Forests! Pisgah was lovely. #usfs #usforestservice #travel #getoutside #stayoutside
Happiness is a fresh pair of socks and an MRE that isn’t jalapeño beef patty. Almost that time again. Dave and me in somewhere, Wyoming. #wyominghotshots #3weekstobeeftrail
Enjoyed a 3 mile family hike in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest - at 6.3 million acres, the largest national forest in the lower 48 states. There are several trails at the edge of the forest just a few miles from our house. Can’t wait to explore more! (Full disclosure: I turned around to see Charlie running through these trees, and when I noticed the light and shadows I made him turn around and do it again for this photo :)) . . . #earthday2018 #getoutside #optoutside #forest #hiking #hikingadventures #hikewithkids #tinybigadventure #adventurewithdog #sundayhike #sundayfunday #kidsphotography #candidshot #candidkids #actionshot #localexplorer #renotahoe #renonevada #thisisreno #onlyinnv #travelnevada #nevada #northernnevada #nationalforest #publiclands #usforestservice #hikingwithkids

#RHFA WILDLAND FIRE ACADEMY Class #21 graduation today. Many will now work as @u.s.forestservice and @calfire firefighters as seasonal and full time status. Some will also have an opportunity to work with our own CREW 77 type 2 hand crew. The Cadre put them through multiple work days in the field, written test’s and an arduous physical fitness program every morning. IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BECOMING A WILDLAND FIREFIGHTER, this is a must. #firefighter #wildalndfirefighting #usforestservice #calfire #handcrew #hotshots #smokejumper
