Word on the streets today is that Trump will announce his decision to significantly shrink both Grand Staircase Escalante and Bear's Ears National Monuments in Utah.
Environmentalists, Native Americans and recreation groups are joining together in Salt Lake City to voice their opposition to the decision. I'll be there in spirit, offering my support to those that show up for the land, grateful that I've been able to visit both of these sacred places.
I'm concerned for a future where the powers that be are more interested in reducing protections to our public lands than protecting them in the first place.
But I'm also inspired by the people that care. The people that rally and speak up and capture beauty and make art and share and deliver petitions and challenge decisions like this in court.
I'm grateful for everyone that is there today, speaking up for two places that are dear to my heart.

"And above all, pity those that live without love." My heart aches for the dispassion, violence, and division that seems to ravage our planet these days. To the Earth that sustains me and to others that push for hope and acceptance with me.... This fight is not over. #lovetrumpshate #Resist #standupforwhatyoustandon

MOST RECENT

I've been taking a little trip down memory lane lately, looking back on old hard drives full of old photos of years past. I've never had a great memory, and I think photography for me is one part art and one part trying to hold on to these moments so I can remember them when my brain fails me.
I dug up these images this week- images that help me remember the time we were driving around southern Utah in our old truck and pointed to a squiggle on an old paper map and wondered where it went.
We stumbled upon a fantastic landscape, which last December was incorporated into #bearsearsnationalmonument. That designation was undone this week, and I still have mixed feelings about all of it, and need to do more research to more fully understand the situation. I do know that since our first visit here, I was surprised that it wasn't more protected. I've only visited this little corner of Bears Ears a few times, and have yet to wander the vast expanses of the (former) monument or witness its Native American historical and cultural artifacts.
I can only imagine what this land means to those who grew up here, those that worship here, those whose ancestors left their mark here, those that have a lifetime of memories created here.

《So much of my true self has gotten lost on this path, bits and pieces having forgotten which way to go looking down at their feet instead of holding their head high against the horizon. Pieces broken, subjected, lost..but found again little by little in small, scattered moments where I just meet her at once and I know its her. And she looks at me with a teary gaze asking, "where have you been?" No longer a child, she's grown stronger eyes and careful feet having conquered the unlit trail, ...and she looks to me like a forgotten breed-the girl that fed tadpoles at the school garden knowing someday they'd live in frog palaces as prince, who built adobe houses for snails in sad weather, and loved the way the rain danced on a drenched trampoline. We turn a corner and she's there again-our unlit matches turn to fire; their embers creating a choir for the eyes. Her meeting makes me come alive again. A piece back in its place. And somewhere there are still lost pieces searching for a path back home, but I know we will meet again because I'm heading the same place too.》 #UnderFiveThousand #freedompreneur #lovethisglobe #mytinyatlas #openmyworld #lifeofadventure #liveauthentic #letsgosomewhere #peoplescreative #live2folk #tlpicks #tandctravel #thecreatives #hboutthere #sombreescapes #discoverearth #visualvoicemag #hypebeast #MG5k #deeplyrooted #releventmag #alwaysbecoming #abidingartists @outdoorwomen #gltLOVE #minimalpeople #standupforwhatyoustandon

NovemberTwentyThreeTwentySeventeen/2458095.37515/day149/even in the places we've been before are there new things to learn. We've been caught in the deluge of the land-use discussion before; it's now up to us to see more than just "what we don't want" and start seeing the myriad solutions that our collective intellect and reasoning have to offer

NovemberTwentyFiveTwentySeventeen/2458094.336979/day148/people can surprise you, no matter how intimately you think you understand them. no matter how deeply typecast they are in your mind. like light can completely transform a landscape from one moment to the next into something alien that you've never before seen regardless of how well you think you know they space. places, like people, require regular touch-time, require revisits from time to time in order to understand the subtleties and nuances. and even then, after a lifetime, you'll still find yourself greeted with surprises. take the extra steps on this and every day to observe, listen, witness, experience

Seein the boys soon, ready to be on snow

Giving a shit can be exhausting. Being educated about all the issues that face us in the modern world can be overwhelming. Sometimes it makes me want to stick my fingers in my ears, squeeze my eyes shut, turn off my phone, and tune it all out. So I do. And I go outside. And open my eyes and ears and breathe. Once I'm recharged, I come back, with renewed energy to learn and change and stand up for the things I believe in again. Honestly I feel guilty for this sometimes. When I do, I turn to this quote, and I'm comforted and inspired by Ed Abbey's words every time:
-----
One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.

•May 15th, 2017•
I dropped everything, packed clothes to wear on my back, filled up the first of many, many empty gas tanks and embarked on the adventure of a lifetime with my best bud. We hit the open road and took in those first insanely freeing and awe-inspiring moments together, and got to stay there for quite some time! I have never felt so high. Ever since, I have developed an unshakable passion for exploration. My relationship with nature has flourished and my unwavering love for our BEAUTIFUL planet grows day by day. My home is where I roam and I cannot wait to see more of it!! 🌎🌻❤️
To deny nature is to deny everything. What’s left of these wild and pristine public lands belong to all of us and their inhabitants. You, me, and future generations to come. This is Y(OUR) home!! PROTECT IT.

MarchTwentySixteen/2458093.336979/day147/I may not know all that much, so it is influenced by my subjective experiences on this earth in this lifetime, but what I do feel like I know is that no individual, no small group of elite has the right or privilege to dictate how any other individual, small or large group engages in the quiet enjoyment they deem to be part of their culture, beliefs, traditions, et cetera. I visited this place March of Two-Thousand-Sixteen, at that time, this place was "unprotected". It was an amalgam of state, tribal and public lands. And it was beautiful. I don't doubt that it still is beautiful. But what has changed between now and then is millions of eyes are upon it. We are putting one another down over its "best use". We are formulating assumptions based on the oversaturation of information readily available at our fingertips. So, all I'd like to share, outside of my own opinions on whether or not these places should be protected or left to the people that live in and around them to manage and defend is that we need to be a little more willing to see these places with our eyes, feel them on our skin, smell them, hear them and a little less anxious to spit in the face of someone with different opinions than us on the basis of our curated, agreeable world-view, ushered on by all those virtual friends that believe exactly what we do. Oh, and #dumptrump for coming to the defense of statues representing the darkest chapter in American history and not standing up for the traditions and culture of this nation's first inhabitants. I know "statue" and "monument" sounds like they mean different things, Donald, but in this situation they are very much the same

Can you spot the van and Cade's paraglider above a perfect campsite in southern Utah? This spot happens to be in the part of Bear's Ears National Monument that was abolished by President Trump yesterday.
I lost some followers after my post about Trump's decision to shrink #bearsears and #grandstaircase National Monuments yesterday. Likes or follows are the least of my concern here, but I think it points to a bigger issue.
Here's the thing, I don't care what your political views are. I'm okay if you agree with me or not. I respect your opinions if they differ from mine, and I want to understand them, so I can hopefully figure out why a lot of people in Utah and the rest of the West seem to support this decision.
I often refrain from discussing controversial or "political" issues in this platform, because I am just as tired of the arguing and division as the rest of you, and my intention is not to push away those who have different values.
I got on Facebook last night for the first time in a long time and read a statement by the governor of Utah that I found interesting, and sparked me to want to research a bit more about the issue at hand. It made me realize that I didn't know all the facts.
But then I started reading the comments. And remembered why I never do that. I was appalled at the name calling, personal attacks, and mud slinging from both sides.
What seemed to be lacking were concrete opinions from people on either side of the aisle that were informed about the issue at hand. The few level-headed statements were completely drowned out by all the arguing.
I know that my family and friends don't always agree with my environmentally-focused perspectives. That's okay with me. As long as we can either agree to disagree or respectfully discuss different viewpoints without personally attacking each other so we can learn, I'm open and willing to talk about it.
I still disagree with Trump's decision, but that doesn't mean I think everyone who agrees with it is wrong.
If anyone needs me, I'll be reading up on the Antiquities Act and Wilderness Study Areas.

If anyone needs me, I'll be reading up on the Antiquities Act and Wilderness Study Areas, and dreaming of perfect days flying above the Valley of the Gods, which until yesterday was part of Bear's Ears National Monument.

I’ve never been to Bear’s Ears, and now I may never get the chance to. We have to stand up for the beauty that is left in this world. It’s only a matter of time until the rest of our public land is auctioned off for big business profit. We must fight back and protect what is not ours to sell.

pic of Beans and I at the protest the other day 📷: @juliajackmccabe ❤️ Trying to protect Bears Ears National Monument and The Grand Staircase Escalante from getting reduced by two million acres, of course a decision made by our president. These are two national parks in southern Utah. He came into town yesterday and I guess authorized this whole scheme 😡😢😣 saddens me to know what kind of world we live in, but it was amazing to see how many people came together at the Capital to stand up for human rights
