Growing up in a military family, I moved all over the United States. One of the things I enjoyed most about attending grade school in so many different regions, was learning about the heritage of the Native Americans in each respective area. On my trip out west this year I had an opportunity to learn more about desert tribes, like the Havasupai, that have lived (and continue to) at the base of this canyon for the past 800 years. I have always felt shame for some of the ways in which this country was founded and continues to treat its native people, and want to truly give thanks to the stewards and protectors of this great land we call home. I have made a donation to First Nations Development Institute @fndi303 and have put a link to their site in my bio for anyone looking to stay in the true spirit of this American holiday.

Presidential Proclamation -- Establishment of the Bears Ears National Monument, paragraph 11: From earth to sky, the region is unsurpassed in wonders. The star-filled nights and natural quiet of the Bears Ears area transport visitors to an earlier eon. Against an absolutely black night sky, our galaxy and others more distant leap into view. As one of the most intact and least roaded areas in the contiguous United States, Bears Ears has that rare and arresting quality of deafening silence.

A western fence lizard in the Cascade - Siskiyou National Monument, taking it easy in the early September sun. These lizards are little masters of camouflage and can change their color to better blend in and to take advantage of the sun’s heat. And they have another superpower: ticks that hop on them and bite them get cleansed of the Lyme disease bacterium, courtesy of a protein in the lizard’s blood. Happy #wildlifewednesday!
Also, if you’re in the States you should include in your plans a trip to Cascade - Siskiyou in Oregon to witness the amazing, intricate ecosystem of a national monument that was protected specifically for its unique ecology. #movedbynature #monumentsforall #nationalmonument #oregon #cascadesiskiyou #outdoors #natureneedshalf #ourwild #mypubliclands #keepitwild #keepitpublic #naturephotography #gooutside #beautifulnature #biodiversity #fencelizard #lizards #travelenjoyrespect

Moose spar in the sagebrush flats of Antelope Flats in Grand Teton National Park. It’s not uncommon to observe large groups of moose in the winter. They concentrate to forage on bitterbrush, a common shrub in the sagebrush plant community. This habitat was originally protected as a National Monument, and thankfully survived an several attempts by congress to rescind it. That’s just one reason I’m thankful for our public lands. #publiclandsproud

Presidential Proclamation—Establishment of the Bears Ears National Monument part 2: The area's human history is as vibrant and diverse as the ruggedly beautiful landscape. From the earliest occupation, native peoples left traces of their presence. Clovis people hunted among the cliffs and canyons of Cedar Mesa as early as 13,000 years ago, leaving behind tools and projectile points in places like the Lime Ridge Clovis Site, one of the oldest known archaeological sites in Utah. Archaeologists believe that these early people hunted mammoths, ground sloths, and other now-extinct megafauna, a narrative echoed by native creation stories. Hunters and gatherers continued to live in this region in the Archaic Period, with sites dating as far back as 8,500 years ago.

A moment I can only describe as peaceful chaos... nature doing it’s thing up at ❄️📍Guenella Pass, Colorado ... the best part was when we decided that we needed someone in the photograph to make it better. I quickly volunteer to ‘make it look epic’ jumped out of the car ran over to this spot... and found myself waist deep in snow 🤣 like I said things don’t always go as planned. #RIMBY #winteriscoming #guenellapass #georgetowncolorado #hoyatough #hoyafilterusa captured on @sonyalpha #sonyalpha

Protect and enjoy your national forests! Especially your multi-use ones, like the Sam Houston National Forest, located in east Texas 50 miles north of Houston. This forest is one of four National Forests in TX. The endangered red-cockaded woodpecker makes its home here, and it and its habitat are fully protected by the forest. The forest also contains the Lone Star Hiking Trail, a 128-mile trail that has received National Recreation Trail status in some sections. And yes, it's still green down here! We Minnesotans can hardly believe it.

We’re kicking off a series of posters to protect the places we play. Each poster series will illustrate an area under threat that we are personally connected to in an illustration style chosen by the designer. These posters are a chance to explore design and typography styles as well as express our stance on public lands. .

Public lands and waters across America are under threat. There are no replacements for these wild places if they disappear. #monumentsforall

Coming out of the Flat Tops on my way home last night...This is in Sand to Snow National Monument and just a 45 minute walk out my back door. Our ruler, Donald Trump and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke are working hard to take this away from you and me and give it to industry. Get here before it’s gone or call Zinke directly at 202-601-3839 and tell him what you think of this low rent idea. #wishyouwerehere

Sometimes all you need is to see the forest for the trees 🌲
