I felt so empowered after a weekend camping and hiking on my own in the Sawtooth Wilderness. If you were to ask me what my happy place looks like, this is it. #sawtoothmountains #hiking #sawtoothwilderness #salmonchallisnationalforest #camping #solotravel #usfs #itsallyours #optoutside #rei1440project #idaho #idahome #weknowidaho #sawtoothlake

It’s been a phenomenal fire season thanks to the undying dedication of our team of pilots, mechanics, drivers, and management. We are proud to support the #usfs and are honored to work alongside men and women who define the notion of team. #hillsboroaviation #usfs #aerialfirefighting #helicopter #aviation #forestfire
Environmental lab students learn how to use forestry tools like DBH tapes, Densiometers, and Clinometers in preparation for their work with resource specialist from USFS, NRCS, and Southern California Edison. #cartenv #USFS #NRCS #southerncaliforniaedison #fresnounified #clovisunified #forest
The Terra Flamma: Wildfires at Night book was just reviewed for @outsidemagazine by @wessiler ! Thank you Wes for this thoughtful piece that connects the book’s images to the broader issue of climate change and housing development into the forest. During this week of heightened fire danger in SoCal the message the book shares is all the more relevant as fire danger in the WUI, or Wildland Urban Interface, is pretty high. If you enjoy history or fire ecology I did some original historic research into fire behavior in Orange County and connected it to fires featured in my book. The repetition of fire in the same places is uncanny. So far we have lucked out with zero large fire starts during the height of the Santa Ana wind event, but lighter offshore flow through Saturday means fire risk will be high for 5 more days, so be safe out there and grab a copy of the book! - SP | PS Don’t forget to tag a friend in this post and sign up for my email newsletter (link in bio!) to be entered into a drawing to win a free 8x10 Terra Flamma print!

In the Sticks ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I love how Aspen stands are so open and let a lot of light in. Dark evergreen forests can be nice too but the white bark of an Aspen is do pretty ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #nature #outside #outdoors #getoutdoors #hiking #hike #travel #explore #exploreeverything #explorecapturecreate #adventure #wanderlust #ig_captures #ig_masterpiece #gooutside #igerslv #usaprimeshot #justgoshoot #aov #way2ill #agameoftones #shoot2kill #windriver #windrivermountains #aspens #usfs #bridgertetonnationalforest #wilderness #forest #wyoming
Took a group of 65 high school freshmen from Peoria,AZ to aspen loop and talked about what it takes to hike Humphrey’s trail with the help of my extra af intern/forest service partner in crime @flagjohnb most of these kids expressed they have never seen snow, or been to more than 2 national parks let alone different forest, deserts, oceans, cities!!! They reminded me of me, when I was a kid and I was so excited for any kind of nature. Loved speaking in Spanish with them, it made them feel closer to home. Crazy fun bunch! I don’t miss being a teacher but I do miss the kids hahaha #coconinonationalforest #flagstaff #arizona #aspenloop #fallcolors #change #hiking #usfs #ranger
The girls were in awe as we took them to the Broadmoor World Arena to watch the figure skaters practice at the US Olympic Figure Skating Training Center. No cameras were allowed inside, but the spirit of success & hard work that filled the air was contagious. It was so much fun to get to watch both the freestyle & pairs. #lifeonsereneave #GoodwinFamilySabbatical #TravelingWithTheGoodwins #broadmoorworldarena #iceskating #usfs #figureskating #Olympics #coloradosprings #colorado #athletes #figureskaters #usfigureskating

Solitude (n.) - a lonely or uninhabited place. ................................... One of my favorite things about nature is getting away from crowds. If you’re like me, sometimes even National Parks don’t seem to be an authentic experience of the outdoors, simply because there are so many other people. Having to wait at an entrance gate for 30 minutes before even getting the car in is a bad sign for me. That’s why I’ve tried to expand my horizons over the past year, and I would encourage you to as well! If you’re tired of crowds getting in the way of nature, try visiting a USFS National Forest. There aren’t nearly as many amenities as in a National or State Park, but to me that’s a beautiful thing. Also, you can usually camp for free along Forest Service roads. Get out there and explore!

Alysa Liu quad attempt called 4Lz< so my guess is that it’s 3.25 rotations. It could be more I don’t know. She has a nice toe pick assist plus outside edge she could have a great 4Lz if she got rid some of the pre rotation. I’ll also say this because I always get hate but just because I critique a jump doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s good. I’m amazed at the fact that people are trying quads it’s not the proper technique at all but it’s still a good effort. - Tags (ignore) #figureskating #iceskating #russianskater #alenakostornaia #isu #figureskater #patinajeartistico #eteri #teamtutberidze #technical #jgpcircut #alinazagitova #olympics #corruption #rusksting #adelinasotnikova #sochi #yunakim #sochi2014 #edea #edeaskates #johnwilson #jackson #risport #technique #usa #regionals #usfs
During the latter portion of the summer and early fall, I spent a couple work trips helping out colleagues in the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Heritage and Wild Trout Program sample and monitor populations of threatened Paiute Cutthroat Trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii seleniris) in the Silver King Creek area. We used backpack electrofishing units to temporarily stun fish with an electrical current, take measurements, and then release the trout back to their point of capture. Our main goal was monitoring the population status of this native fish, one of the rarest trout in the U.S. https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Conservation/Fishes/Paiute-Cutthroat-Trout #california #sierranevada #cdfw #fish #fisheries #fisheriesmanagement #threatenedspecies #trout #wildtrout #paiutecutthroat #Oncorhynchusclarkiiseleniris #wilderness #usfs #humboldttoiyabenationalforest #carsonicebergwilderness #aquaticecology @russ.rds @n_v_g_ @alodoe @tricia_kash
Still feels like a dream to me. Love doing what I do. 💪🏽🔥🚒🇺🇸
(PSA: Strong Santa Ana wind event currently underway in SoCal with “extremely critical” fire danger through Tuesday night. Watch for downed power lines and have your emergency plan ready!) POST: When I go back and look at photographs of wildfires I’ve made in the middle of the night it’s often like peering into a lucid dream, something that seems real but also ethereal and impermanent. The images convey details that my mind forgets in it’s sleep deprived state, the subtle reflection of flame off the ocean, the blue and red lights out of frame giving the entire image a color cast, never to be repeated in the same palate, other than that short burst of time the shutter was open. It was truly strange to be standing to close to the Pacific Ocean, and in some cases the beach, watching the Thomas Fire burn all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Even the little bit of brush between the railroad tracks and the sand eventually caught on fire. Going through some images from the last two seasons for a little project I’m contributing to with an organization I am so honored to be working with. Looking forward to sharing that with you soon.

Just keep on walking/trotting. With the wind now at our backs the fire, which can be seen moving across the wooded hill on the left, kept pace with us as we hustled to beat it to the next corner on the line. Britania Mountain, 2018 photo by: Kyle Miller @kwmiller945

When the plant in front of you is way more interesting than the lake in the distance 🙄
It has been a fun and rewarding field season, during much of which I was working with these cute little beasts: the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog (Rana sierrae). This species is listed under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA) as threatened and federally listed (under the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1973) as endangered. Working with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, I am one of many biologists working to help protect and reestablish this species in areas of the Sierra Nevada. #california #sierranevada #frog #amphibian #herpetology #sierranevadayellowleggedfrog #ranasierrae #usfws #cdfw #publiclands #wilderness #usfs #northerncalifornia #amphibiansofinstagram #rana #highmountainlakes #endangeredspecies @russ.rds @n_v_g_

Hey guys I missed posting on this account a lot so I’m probably going to keep it. I haven’t figured out how often I’m going to post though... it’ll most likely be 5 times a week of something like that (Sorry this is an old video I have to record new ones) - - - - #figureskating #iceknivescontest #gymnastics #dance #yurionice #lutz #axel #triples #doubles #ijs #usfs #nufsc #ashley #johnwilson @johnwilsonblades @usfigureskating #nathanchen #ivivva @ivivva #mirainagasu #evgeniamedvedeva #spins #lululemon @lululemon #nike #skateroniceft #upliftingft #skaternetft @edeaskates #figureskaatinggft #tripleflipft
