We are scarily fast destroying the natural world and the life in it, exterminating species, cutting down forest, polluting the air, emptying the ocean for fish replacing it with plastic, all in the name of western priviliged life, progess, commercial interests and power. #environmentallyconscious #climateaction #votegreen #klimatosse #refusereuserecycle #refuseplastic #wakeup #plasticocean #oneocean #visitwithrespect #marineconservation #changeyourdailylife #LaBlueMerHeart #nobluenogreen #oceanconservation #onebreath #oneworld #oceanpollution

Swipe through —> A large thunderstorm arrived in the Vally of the Gods during my last few hours in Bears Ears National Monument.

there’s nothing like it, really / some call it The Juice: the finding, the absolute garish wonder of it / reaching from the ground & sockin’ you in the eye. technicolor panavision rift through time and space / last hands to touch this maybe ancient / last flesh it felt perhaps a megafaun // or maybe not. perhaps some other left it there for yet another (me) to stumbleon. / the finding always better than the taking, knowing that taking from this landscape dulls the edge & steals the shine of centuries. / let it be / let time roll past. let nature shift it round like some great cosmic cup-game. find and leave and find and leave to find again // . . . . #takeonlypictures #leavenotrace #sacredplaces #lithics #youareonindianland #treadlightly #desertnoodling #desertlove #visitwithrespect #neverthefinderalwaysthefound

Finally got to do an overnight trip in Bears Ears National Monument! The route is 20mi from point to point, but with all the side trips, I ended up logging 40mi 🤢. That was over 2 nights/3 days. Thankfully I had a bag of tamales waiting for me in the car. If you visit any of the canyons in Bears Ears, please protect them and take care of them #outdoorlos #standwithbearsears #protectwildutah #visitwithrespect #leavenotrace #monumentsforall #adventureanywhere

I was channeling my inner @edmoss.iii when I was looking for rock art within the canyons of Bears Ears. These were way above the canyon floor on an unmarked site. Also don’t forget that roackart and any archeological sites are protected by law.

Today, we are celebrating the 113th anniversary of the Antiquities Act. While the Antiquities Act may not be the best way to protect landscapes, it often becomes the only way when Congress fails to act. It is a crucial tool used by Presidents from both parties and has led to the protection of important lands. . . Not only was it used to protect the southeastern Utah cultural landscape we all love, Bears Ears, but it was also initially used to protect other treasured and important Utah landscapes including Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, and more. . . 📸 by Richard Bullough . #StandwithBearsEars #MonumentsForAll #VisitwithRespect

Over the last two days, Friends of Cedar observed the first and only meeting of the Monument Advisory Committee for the reduced Bears Ears National Monument that will occur before a final Monument Management Plan is released. . . Despite the obvious love for the land shown by committee members and the good intentions of local agency officials, this process was not set up by the Administration to garner robust feedback from a variety of viewpoints. There simply was not enough time to begin to explore the complex and challenging issues raised in the 200+ page Draft Plan for managing an internationally significant landscape, sacred to Indigenous peoples, like Bears Ears.

Fremont Petroglyphs along the Fremont River in Capital Reef National Park. Fremont culture flourished in this part of Central Utah beginning about 2000 years ago. It extended as far as the Basin and Range in Nevada and left behind evocative works of art like these stylized anthropomorphic figures. Sadly these have been used for target practice. Much of the artwork in the west is scarred by gunshots or graffiti. #visitwithrespect

I ditched some big run plans yesterday to explore the Taputapuatea marae UNESCO Heritage site on the sacred island of Raitea with an indigenous local. ____________ My first thought—wow, how incredible to have this indigenous ancestral and sacred site protected and recognized by the world! Meanwhile, in the USA we are still debating whether Bears Ears should be a National Monument. ____________ My local guide @polynesian.escape said that the results of this increased protection are mixed and I want to dig deeper into how much the indigenous locals get to play a role in its current management and restoration efforts. ___________ We discussed the parallels to what’s happening in places like Bears Ears, and my guide was shocked that vandalism exists in such intrinsically important places. “Where is the respect?” ____________ In the mean time I’m hoping some of this mana, life force energy, over here gets sent to Bears Ears Advisory Committee meeting today. We don’t get these kinds of places back. #ProtectWhatYouLove #VisitWithRespect #LoveTahiti #defendthesacred

When I was sick in December but still wanted to go exploring. 😂 We found this beautifully intact Sinagua ruin wall. Built around the 14th century. - If you visit a historic site, please don’t take anything except pictures. Don’t stand on walls or remove rocks from them. Be careful when you share locations too. Not everyone has the same good ethics! - #explorethedesert #visitwithrespect #donttakeanything #ancientruin #sinagua #sinaguaculture #nativeamericanhistory #arizonaruins #arizonahistory #azhistory #desertlady #womenhikers

Traveling this summer? Here is some advice and guidance for visiting Bears Ears as well is other National Monuments 👇👇👇 Reposted from @bearsearscoalition ・・・ The National Trust for Historic Preservation ( @savingplaces) named the Bears Ears region as one of the top 11 “Most Endangered Historic Places” in America. The reduction of the original monument in 2017 scaled back federal protections for this sacred landscape and has left many areas extremely vulnerable to irreversible damage. With summer upon us and more people heading outdoors, it is up to all of us to make sure we #VisitWithRespect and encourage others to do the same. Our parters @cedarmesafriends have outlined many ways that you can be a responsible tourist when visiting Bears Ears and other natural landscapes. Here are just a few: 1. Leave all ancestral objects where you find them. 2. Don’t touch rock art or make your own. 3. Steer clear of historical structures (walls). 4. Stay on designated roads and existing trails. 5. GPS reveals too much, and can lead uneducated visitors to sensitive sites. Remove location references when posting on social media or online.

I returned to a favorite place today and realized I had, in the past, overlooked several interesting features. Photos 1-5 are from a small camp site on a high ridge. There are a couple 1940s-era artifacts, but for the most part it appears to be a pre-1860s camp associated with a nearby eagle trap. . Photos 1-3: Flaked stone tools. The first one is a flake that has some use wear along one margin. The second is a biface fragment. The third is a small piece of debitage. . Photo 4: Axe-cut wooden pole wedged in a crevice. . Photo 5: A small stacked-rock storage feature. . Photo 6: a Native American eagle trap. A person would conceal themselves within the crevice under branches or a hide and place a live rabbit on a rope upon the ledge above. When an eagle swooped down for the rabbit, they would grab the raptor by the legs. A tough dangerous task, but that's one way people obtained culturally valued raptor feathers. . This spot is a bit off the beaten path, so thankfully it is in pretty good shape. May it long remain that way! . . #visitwithrespect #takeonlypicturesleaveonlyfootprints #leavenotrace #archaeology #archeologia #archeologie #arkeologi #archäologie #arkeoloji #lithics #stonetools #tools #landscape #hike #hikes #timeoutsociety #getoutside #nativeamerica #nativeamerican

When I was a kid, I spotted this site from the car window while my parents and I were exploring new roads. We hiked down to it that afternoon and again the next day. Upon looking at our tracks from the previous day, we noticed fresh mountain lion tracks following our tracks up and out of the canyon. We decided to call this Cougar Track Ruin. Now it has a unimaginative name with GPS coordinates and maps that take you directly to it. Chains and signs have been put up to keep people out. A good thing overall but it takes away from ambiance this place once had. A beautiful site nonetheless but another poster child for Bears Ears. #preservationthrougheducation #visitwithrespect #takeonlypicturesleaveonlyfootprints #leavenotrace #thosewhocamebefore #cliffdwellings #archaeologyiscool #blackandwhitephotograpghy #childhoodflashback

What does it mean to be built with purpose? For us, we work with over 25 companies that can use storytelling to develop and grow their brands. But balance is important to our message and thus our producers and production crew have worked for close to 3 years on a feature length documentary film that dives deep into the truths behind the #GSENM and #bearsears story stemming out of Southern Utah. For us, it is important to use our hands, hearts, and minds to create a film that ensures that the precedent can not be set that permanent protections to our #publiclands can not simply be undone from one administration to another.

Friends of Cedar Mesa welcomes the acceptance of our nomination of this vitally important region, which is believed to hold the highest density of cultural and archaeological sites in the United States currently open to oil and gas development. . . These lands hold human history dating back 8,000 years and are considered sacred by many Tribes and Pueblos including the Hopi, Zuni, Navajo, Ute, and Pueblos of New Mexico. . .

I just completed what will probably be my last trip to #bearsearsnationalmonument for my @lesley_mfa MFA. I’ve been at least once a month every month since October and I’ve grown to love it as one of my favorite places in the United States. Out of thousands of photographs taken, only about 30 will make the cut for my final project. Here are three that won’t make it. This is truly a monument worth protecting. #standwithbearsears #visitwithrespect - - - - - - - - - #utah #fourcorners #southwest #publiclands #conservation #preservation #nature #wilderness #bearsears #gradschool #mfa #landscapephotography #naturephotography #conservationphotography #nikon

It’s not every day you get to hike across a remote sandstone land bridge overlooking a canyon like that, and marvel at ancient dwellings and rock art. Morgan and I have had an amazing couple of days with a group organized by @conservationlandsfoundation to learn about conservation & respect for Bears Ears National Monument. I’ll write a trip report soon about this experience and the area around Bluff UT. Meanwhile I hope you’ll click on the link in my profile to learn more about America’s National Conservation Lands on BLM-managed land and why the work of Conservation Lands Foundation is so important. Thanks CLF-supported @cedarmesafriends for all the work they do in this region; be sure to visit their educational center in Bluff. #visitwithrespect #standwithbearsears #publiclands #conservationlands

Places I sleep // I feel blessed, My friend @mleegy had an extra space for some time and offered me to move in. So these days we share his house in Assalah, the Bedouin part of Dahab, surrounded by noisy goats, ditto mosques, sandy dust, beautiful desert mountains and a chaos that I feel at home in. Somehow the chaos reflects my mind. And I get to know a good friend even better. 🙏⭐️ #mynomadiclife #placesisleep #whereisleep #traveladdict #placetorest #creativemind #homeiswhereyoustakeit #idontneedmuch #simpleliving #nomadicliving #homeiswheretheheartis

Delighted to find such clean riverbanks along Towarnehiooks/the Deschutes! These three pieces were the only trash we found on our Daily Waterway Visit. . A trade route and source of food for the Indigenous people, Towarnehiooks (the Deschutes River) was a major barrier to westward expansion from 1800 onwards. . .

Pictured here is the Kaibab Suspension Bridge and a section of the S Kaibab Trail... but you really have to zoom in to see it 🤹🏽‍♂️. If you’ve done the Rim-to-River hike, then you probably took that route. This view is from the north side of the park #outdoorlos #keepthecanyongrand #leavenotrace #latinooutdoors #visitwithrespect #monumentsforall #ourwild

Pronghorn Antelope territory. . Northern Paiute Historical Home Land . Leaving Northern Nevada and entering into Eastern Oregon. . Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge: noted for its population of wild horses, now all removed and The Virgin Valley Mining District for Black Precious Opals, the Nevada State Gemstone, still very active with multiple fee dig mines. A point within the refuge is also the farthest place in the continuous US from a McDonald's restaurant, at just 115 miles. (185 kilometers) . Advocates characterize Sheldon as one of the few intact sagebrush steppe ecosystems in the Great Basin, one that hosts a variety of wildlife endemic to the unique environment. Desert fishes, greater sage-grouse, migratory birds, mule deer and the pygmy rabbit are all residents. Road Trip, April 2019
