Everyone's talking about #BearsEars. Link in profile for the backstory, an entertaining & informative 30 min podcast about the battle between outdoor enthusiasts, energy companies, and the tribes. .
My friends are rad, each and every one of them has amazing talents and outlooks on life that I continuously look up to. And as amazing as they are, they are highly modest, well grounded folk! I feel lucky everyday having the people I have around me, even if I don't see them often! Friends, you all rock! @safeishtom being @safeish back in Moab last November!
Under an executive order issued in April, 2017 the U.S. Department of the Interior is currently reevaluating the status of 27 established national monuments. Like the monument near where I grew up (Craters of the Moon, pictured here) these unique places are home to rare flora and fauna, indigenous tribes, and some of the most important archeological sites in the United States. Loss of official designation could result in these sites being opened for mining, drilling, logging, and cattle grazing, which would cause permanent damage. The #27Monuments Project was created to raise awareness and to encourage people to leave informed messages on the DOI comment page. Click in my bio to make your voice heard, we only have til July 10th to make a difference! We almost lost #bearsears but due to massive public outcry they reopened the comment period again until July 10th! A few months back My friend @brentdangerrose and I were discussing what we could do to bring awareness to this issue and #27Monuments the epic road trip was created! Way to go Brent!! He's visiting all the monuments to build awareness for these special places and I'm showing UP where I can!! #27Monuments#cratersofthemoonnationalmonument#cratersofthemoon shot entirely on @GoPro
We watched the sun set below the pillars of rock, sweat-sodden from the heat of the sun. Then, the chill creeped in like dry snowflakes blowing across a frozen pond - another wonderful day. : Bears Ears, UT

EDGE OF MORNING & RED ROCK STORIES- the last reading and discussion panel for now. Thank you, @goldenbraidbooks for this wonderful event so far.
Many of our most beloved (and most visited) National Parks began as National Monuments. A location is distinguished a National Monument to protect ecological, cultural, archaeological, or historic significance, so it’s not surprising these are some pretty special places. Take a second to appreciate the beautiful Bears Ears National Monument. @alpinerudolf | #RootsRated
About a month ago I slipped away from a family gathering to do a little recon on a new tower in the bears ear area! This weekend we got back up there for some fun camping and a FA on this sweet little tower. #climbing#deserttower#bearsears#utahisrad
I find it kind of hard to believe these Juniper Berries outside the Fremont era granary were legit from hundreds of years ago but who knows?
Even if they were just rathered by some other photographer for a shot they still look pretty cool.
