The value of the Yampa is simply that it exists, it is a celebration, a beacon of hope. It flows defiantly in a dammed Colorado watershed and in the face of a threatened American West. The Yampa embodies the wildness, the perseverance and the fight that beats in the heart of every American. My Yampa story at the link in my profile.
Crazy doesn't begin to describe an unbelievable 5 days across NorCal - first trip into Yosemite, rafting the wild and scenic Tuolumne with @oars_rafting, sleeping out under the stars and taking in the Bay. s/o to @g_mamo for pulling this off flawlessly and to the whole crew for going along with this insane, unforgettable experience #crushedit#oarslife#brosemite#ahonewlifewithcyph
I’ve been thinking about Monuments a lot lately and all the different feelings people have toward words like “federal protection.” 🦖 Dinosaur National Monument is a hidden jewel in the park system—> rich in natural and cultural history as well as an important part of our present connection with dark skies, wild waters, and striking sandstone walls. This fall, the BLM under Zinke announced the sale of ~75 additional oil and gas leases near the Monument, up for grabs in December. And while the BLM has (for now) agreed to defer a few parcels within sight of the visitor center, a memo from the NPS states the air pollutants from the construction and operation of wells will cause degraded visibility, adverse human health effects, and impacts to the ecosystem. I guess we’ll start holding our breath. 😷——————-——————— Here we are running the Gates of Lodore in Sep with @oars_rafting and Sierra Club’s @militaryoutdoors. What an incredibly special place. - - - - 🦖❤️🦖❤️🦖❤️🦖❤️🦖❤️🦖❤️🦖❤️ #publicland#monument#utahisrad because of our #desert#canyons and #rivers#getoutstayout#neverstopexploring#oarslife#rafting#greenriver#boats#whitewater#LandWeDefend#SCMO#dinosaurnm#optoutside#GreatOutdoors

Collaborative art is a wonderful swirl of cohesion, fun, excitement, honesty, and vulnerability. The wonderful @jazzmariephotography illustrated some of my river words, and could not have encapsulated the creaky lines and staunch readiness the radiates from guide hands any better.
