Delcie coming up the hill during mop up at the end of the day on Suttle Basin Fire. The fire in the foreground is from what's called a bone pile. Large chunks of burning logs are stacked together so they'll burn up faster while we're mopping up other areas. Photo By: Kyle Miller @kwmiller945

SAF member Matthew Dejonge (@tall_matterhorn ) can be seen here with his crew in Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Randle, WA. His crew works in The Cowlitz Valley Ranger District with the U.S. Forest Service. They learned how to cruise Red Alder from Gifford Pinchot’s measurement specialist, Rick Miller. Matthew and his crew had never cruised red alder, so this was a momentous occasion! ~ ~ ~ Follow the hashtag #SAFMemberSpotlight to see the amazing work our members do!
Throwback to last summer. Can you name this backcountry airstrip? Hint: It’s large enough for a DC-3. - - - - - #flying #aviation #backcountry #travel #adventure #usfs #usforestservice #forestservice #idaho #bushplane #cessna #stol #hiking #backpacking #camping #river #riverrunning #mountains

Pretty sad when I saw this message on a oak tree in the woods; we are blessed with such beauty and to abuse it and leave trash everywhere is completely wrong and lazy. Downright ignorant. PICK YOUR TRASH UP. #likeforfollow #likeforlikes #doubletap #truth #pissed #oregon #usforestservice #pickupyourtrash #instagood #instalike #warningcampers #punks
Can you spot Half Dome? The Ahwahnee Meadow, scrolling past Half Dome, Starr King, and Glacier Point. The smoke is now creeping into the buildings and homes. Rain would be a welcome sight.
Color! It wasn’t long into what turned out to be a hot hike yielded results. Our goal in hiking the Summit Campground area north of Grassy Butte (and not so far south of the Little Missouri River) was to photograph the lush green which the badlands still presents, despite it being mid July. The heat of the day took us by surprise and we sought shade wherever we could find it. To our delight, in those areas we found Wild Bergamot, too! Brilliant purple contrasting bright green! And the minty fragrance! Now.... Bergamot Tea, anyone? Oh, the surprises we find in the grasslands and badlands! #wildflowers #bergamot #wildbergamot #badlands #flowers #mint #beautifulbadlands #beautifulbadlandsnd #purple #green #grasslands #NationalGrasslands #publicland #LittleMissouriNationalGrasslands #SummitTrail #highway85 #USForestService #northdakota #ndlegendary #explore #hike #walk #McKenzieCounty #WatfordCity #marysphotos #sidehackmary #hike #discover #

As much as I love livng in San Diego, I will always be a PNW girl at heart. I never feel as at peace and at home as I do when I am in the forest. I feel pretty lucky that I can just take a short road trip and go from the beach to this ❤⛰ #sanbernardinonationalforest #usforestservice #nationalforest #erniemaxwelltrail #gooutside #explorenature #explore #hiking #i ❤hiking #hikingmama #nature #outdoors #pnwgirl #pnwforlife

I had so much fun with this sweet woman! Her mind was interesting, she presented so many crazy but cool ideas! I'll miss her. I'm so glad she was there to train and help me through my first fire. I was definitely in good hands. Good karma for us both. #DollarRidgeFire #Fire #ILoveMyJob #USForestService #Positivity

Sure we say let’s get lost, but the truth is that getting lost tops the list for solo hikers fears. ⚠️❓⁉️❓⚠️. That’s why we want to give you some tips in the event you do actually find yourself lost on a hike. . Follow the STOP 🛑 recommendation by the US Forest Service 🌲. . ✋🏼 Stop: As soon as you realize you are lost, quit moving around. Stay calm and don’t panic. . 🤔 Think: Retrace your steps in your mind. What landmarks did you see? Did you take any photos 📷 that might help you find your way back? Do not move until you have calmed down & had time to think about your situation with a clear mind. . 👀 Observe: If you are on a trail, stay on the trail, since that path has brought you to this point. Use a compass (either one you brought or on your phone) to gather your bearings. Last resort, follow a stream or drainage downhill. ⚠️this CAN be dangerous, so rangers advise to not take this decision lightly, but typically a stream downhill will lead to a road or trail. . 🗺 Plan: Based on the previous steps, come up with a plan. Do not move until you feel confident in your plan. Stay where you are until you have a solid plan. If you are close to dusk or the sun has set, stay put. You are better off waiting until morning. Sunrise 🌅 is a better time to make clearer decisions. . Carrying tracking devices such as @garminoutdoor or @alltrails applications can be helpful IF you have battery life and in some instances service. Download @alltrails maps before you head out so you can set “waypoints” to help you navigate. . Always tell at least 3 people where you are going and when you expect to be back. Also, leave a picture of yourself somewhere visible at your camp site or car with a dirty sock in a zip lock. We know it sounds crazy, but it can help Search and Rescue canine rescuers pick up your scent and SAR’s team members know who to look for in the search. . Adventure can take unexpected turns, I mean UFO 🛸 experiences could happen. So just make sure you are prepared! #campasana #survivaltips #usforestservice #lostinwild #explore
My military service was not at all what I wanted it to be. It was constant disappointment in myself and the service in general because after applying for multiple branches I was only allowed into the Air Force where I continue to push and struggle and fight to get sent to combat and was repeatedly denied year after year after year. I was filled with shame and embarrassment that I was in the military during wartime and unable to go to war and help. There were guys fighting and dying everyday and I wasn't allowed to go help them attend be a part of it. That is something I will live with for the rest of my life. But I was able to travel and see the world and experienced a lot of things that wouldn't have been able to otherwise. Now I got a degree that I used my GI Bill to accomplish and I do have a leg up on the level of competition when it comes to applying for fire and first responder jobs so I can't complain too much. Proud to support all veterans!!! #usairforce #usforestservice
