#AntiquitiesAct

I am excited to announce this project! With permission from Terry Tempest Williams. @bzchildress and I collaborated on a letterpress literary broadside using a beautiful quote from her book Red: Passion and Patience in the Desert. Quote is below. I am selling them for a suggested donation of $10, and then 100% of the money will go to Utah Diné Bikéyah @protectbearsears. If you would like to purchase one please DM me. If you would like to make a donation in your own name the link is in my profile. If you make a donation in your own name, please DM me your receipt and I will send you a print! They are 8 x 12 inches. .
If you are looking for other organizations to donate to or another good gift, The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance @SUWA is doing a great gift membership deal that comes with an awesome beanie. . “It’s strange how deserts turn us into believers. I believe in walking in a landscape of mirages, because you learn humility. I believe in living in a land of little water because life is drawn together. And I believe in the gathering of bones as a testament to spirits that have moved on. If the desert is holy, it is because it is a forgotten place that allows us to remember the sacred. Perhaps that is why every pilgrimage to the desert is a pilgrimage to the self. There is no place to hide, so we are found." . .

One day long ago, children sprinted through the forest in terror as several bears pursued them hungrily. Finding themselves cornered, the children prayed to the Great Spirit, who raised the earth so that the bears could not reach them atop so high a platform. You can still see today the marks the bears clawed into the rock as they tried to climb.

Or perhaps it was formed when pressure in the mantle uplifted igneous rock within a layer of sedimentary, the latter of which subsequently eroded, leaving this massive butte behind.

Whichever you prefer, this place is clearly aesthetically, culturally, and scientifically significant. Therefore it was dedicated by Teddy Roosevelt under the Antiquities Act as the first National Monument. Since 1906, establishing national monuments has been critical to our diverse natural and social heritage. Fortunately, Devils Tower is safe. Yet many- Bear Ears, Grand Staircase Escalante, Gold Butte, Cascade Siskiyou- are not. In the 111 years since Devils Tower was established, this would be the first occasion where national monument protections might be shrunken or withdrawn.

This threatens the very existence of these delicate, beautiful and important places.

There's something about the desert that cures so many ails. It clears my mind of stress. Cradles me in its sandstone warmth, easing the pain of loss. It exhilarates my body, mind, and soul to live fully. It challenges me to taste all the sweeteness and sourness of life. This place, the people in it (like this sexy rock @skiwithscissors), the love and adventure that seeps out of each person and each canyon, this is my medicine and magic. And with that, there is no way I'm letting this place be scarred by industry and greed. #protectbearsears #bearsearsnationalmonument #protectpubliclands #mymagicplace 📸: @sunny_sam

Guys, do you like to get rad sendy and do things outside for free-99? Well I do. So then I can spend my extra dough on tacos and dogs.
🌮 🐶
Well some people in congress want to make it legal for the president to take away some of these goodies WITHOUT an act of congress by passing a misleading bill called the National Monument Creation and Protection Act. Check it out. Link in profile. 🌺
Also, check out this picture of K-Dawg doing her thing in nature.

At the cultural crossroads of the #SantaCruzRiver: The remains of the mission church at #Tumacacori #NationalHistoricalPark #NationalParkService #FindYourPark. In 1908 #TeddyRoosevelt declared the site Tumacacori #NationalMonument and in 1990 it was designated a National Historical Park. #MonumentsForAll #AntiquitiesAct

TAKE ACTION: Congress is about to vote on a new bill that would give the President authority to reduce monuments (which is currently illegal), prohibit landscape-based protection (which would affect places like Bears Ears), and make it more difficult for future presidents to protect land with the Antiquities Act. Don't let Congress gut the Antiquities Act.

Please take a few minutes to use @accessfund's letter-writing tool (link in bio) to tell Congress to protect the Antiquities Act.

*ACTION ALERT* Don't let Congress gut the Antiquities Act. This bill is a serious threat to our national monuments and their exceptional climbing areas, like Indian Creek, the Needles, Devils Tower, and others.

Don't let H.R. 3990 pass Congress. Call your member of Congress (202-225-3121 - an operator will direct your call) and say that you care about public lands and OPPOSE H.R. 3990, the “National Monument Creation and Protection Act” and any other attacks on our national monuments and public lands.

The size of Delaware the Grand Escalante Staircase is truly a National Monument. A local told me that he has spent the past 30 years of his life exploring the untrammeled landscape. The land holds history from well over 250 million years. Not gonna be the generation that watched the few special places disappear.

30's and 40's is actually perfect hiking weather, especially on the blustery days - there's less wind in the woods! Each phase of fall in Minnesota is unique for its changing color palette. Though the color meter is "past peak" and there was far more grey than red, gold, green, or orange this past Sunday at #whitewaterstatepark, much beauty remains. The lack of leaves opens the little mysteries of the woods for the eyes - birds, nests, unique curvatures of trees become visible. The canvas of fallen leaves and pine needles underfoot tells me one more year has gone by and simultaneously reminds me to appreciate life for what it is in the moment. In a world in which political and social unrest is increasingly prevalent in addition to fear of natural disasters and continual environmental degradation, the ultimately predictable rhythm of the living world just outside my front door brings me peace. I'd rather be outside than anywhere. In the here and now, life is good. Future generations of humans, animals, and nature itself deserve the same experience, and more. Taking land from national monuments for short term gains is only the beginning- a gateway action toward erasing precious places that deserve protection. #protectnature #specialplaces #nationalparks #stateparks #antiquitiesact #respectearth #getoutside #explore #hike #camp #adventure #stoptrump

This image shows a stunning display of paintings in the Bears Ears National Monument. From corner to corner, this designation is filled with priceless pieces of cultural history. The current boundaries create the smallest area possible for the proper care and management of these resources—much of which are unknown and/or undocumented. These boundaries reflect the tribes’ intimate knowledge with this landscape and its history.
Reducing those boundaries without fair consideration of the density, distribution, and locations of these cultural sites is simply an act of neglect. #bearsears #protectbearsears #bearsearsnationalmonument #canyon #antiquitiesact #archaeology #art #history #desert #utpol #outdoors #conservation #preservation

While traveling through New Mexico, I stopped by White Sands National Monument. Realistically, noontime is not ideal for photographing this beautiful place. So I started looking at all the tracks in the sand, lizards, spider, birds, etc. Also, some of the patterns from the wind are interesting.

PROTECT OUR PARKS!!!! (This is alarming) https://www.thenation.com/article/interior-department-scrubs-climate-change-from-its-strategic-plan/ I strongly recommend a visit to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park. When I went, parts of the park were cold and snowy, while other parts were very warm. I love experiencing different seasons within a park. #AntiquitiesAct #nps @nps @goparks #SharetheExperience #DartandMap #travel #GenX #GenXTraveler #wanderlust #America #NorthAmerica #traveler #UnitedStates #RoadTripUSA #OutdoorsUSA #TasteUSA #TLPicks #VisitTheUSA #adventure #budgettraveling #roadtrip #explore #IamATraveler #OptOutside

Throwback to Colorado and RMNP. such a powerful experience being so close to this majestic animal, even with all the other people it's not hard to feel a connection with these beautiful creatures. Sharing these moments with tourists and strangers is a small price that I'll pay any day of the week. If you enjoy these places like I do please get involved so we can keep these lands from being taken away from us. #sorryforgettingpolitical #colorado #rmnp #elk #elkfest2017 #keepourlandspublic #keepourlandswild #nationalparks #blm #nationalforests #antiquitiesact #getoutside
