According to research by Headwaters Economics, "the communities in Garfield and Kane counties, Utah neighboring the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument experienced strong growth after the designation of the monument, continuing previous growth trends." From 2001 to 2015, in the Grand Staircase-Escalante region, population grew by 13%, real personal income grew by 32%, jobs grew by 24%, and real per capita income grew by 17%. #MonumentsForAll #SaveGrandStaircase 📷: @mypubliclands

The news lately has been overwhelming and terrible, and with everything going on, it would be easy for this piece of news to go unnoticed: A Canadian mining company is moving ahead with plans to mine what was formerly protected land in Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. The Dept of the Interior is allowing this, even though the legality of Trump’s shrinkage of our monuments has yet to be decided in court. Our outraged voices are all we have, so while you’re speaking out against the staggeringly numerous heinous acts committed by the Trump administration, please remember to add this one to your list. Thank you 🙏🏼 #protectourpubliclands #keepitintheground #keepitpublic #keepitwild #grandstaircase #gsenm #monumentsforall #ourpubliclands

Celebrate Pollinator Week in Illinois with the Sierra Club! Teams of Sierrans throughout Illinois have been as busy as bees working to improve habitat for all pollinator- bees, birds and butterflies. DuPage Monarch Project, led by the River Prairie Group of the Sierra Club, asked Governor Rauner to name June 18-24 as Illinois Pollinator Week and he followed through! As we celebrate pollinators the week of June 18-24, take time to learn how you can help and how you can engage with other Sierra Club members in this important conservation work. Visit the link in our bio to learn more.

STOP. THIS IS OUR LAND.
.
I'm sitting at work feeling like I could cry. It was announced that a Canadian company will begin mining on land that USED to be Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument until Trump cut it IN HALF. .
We only get 1 earth and I'm ready to put up a fight.

Here we go. This week a Canadian mining company, Glacier Lake Resources Inc., acquired the Colt Mesa deposit 35 southeast of Boulder, Utah. We were lied to. Once this land is in the hands of these companies, it’s not ours anymore- not for hunters, ranchers, campers, hikers or other members of the public. This is a 200 acre parcel of land that is not ours anymore. Where will it stop? Potentially in the courts, but there is no guarantee. I’m running for Congress so we can have an advocate in Congress for protecting this most precious and shared resource. #publiclands #savegrandstaircase #nationalmonuments #utah #utpol #democrat #grandstaircaseescalante #monumentsforall #publiclandsinpublichands

You might leave the dunes.. but somehow the dunes never leave you. I was covered in sand — and I didn’t know sand could accumulate in certain areas: scalp, behind and in the ears, butt cracks — but was it worth it... totally dude 🙏🏽🔥🤟🏽 some more dune-ography for your 👁️ eyes 📍Great Sand Dunes National Park, Mosca, Colorado @greatsanddunesnps #greatsanddunesnationalpark #greatsanddunes #greatsanddunesnps #RIMBY #coloradotography #sonyimages

These pictures are from Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument. In them, there’s light and shadow, pictographs and the ruins of an archeological site, one of the longest slot canyons in the world, animals and plants, clouds, sky, and swirls of color everywhere you look. It’s part of the least explored area remaining in the lower 48 states.
.
Being from Ohio, most of my friends have never visited Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument, and that’s okay. President Clinton created the monument in 1996. It contains the richest fossil trove of the late Cretaceous period in the world, and 12 new species of dinosaur have been discovered within its boundaries. There have been more than 5,000 archeological sites discovered in the 22 years since it’s been created. 2600 species of animals live there, and it is home to 85% of all the plants found in Utah. Thanks to the monument, per capita income in the region increased 17% from 2001 to 2015. While it’s important to me, I don’t live there, but thankfully 88% of Utahns want the monument boundaries to stay as they are, and not be shrunk under Trump’s watch.
.
Why is this relevant now? Under President Trump, the monument is slated to (possibly, depending on the courts) be slashed roughly in half. Yesterday it was announced that a Canadian mining company, Glacier Lake Resources Inc. purchased a 200 acre parcel of land to begin mining within the boundaries, signaling the first of many threats to come.
.
We can’t let this happen. Save Grand Staircase. You deserve to see it as it is. Senator Portman’s number is 614-469-6774. Senator Brown’s number is 614-469-2083. If anything, call for the people that have lived there in the past and the ones that haven’t gotten to visit yet. And me, because I’ll be back. .

One of the many benefits of paddling the Colorado River in Glen Canyon, ample colorful beaches. Bring your @wavesgear to beat the heat and keep your gear dry.

I changed this account to a “business account” and made a Facebook account for it. I guess this means I’m a SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCER NOW. (Not really.

A treat at the end of the trail. Trail Tip of the Day: if you are hiking with others, hike single file not side by side. Keep the foot path only as wide as it needs to be.

Don’t forget to register for our guided tour and bird walk of Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie on June 30. We’ll be joined by some friends at Chicago Ornithological Society (@chicago_birder) as we explore this fantastic landscape. And you might just see some crazy awesome birds like this; any guess as to what it is? Photo via @chicago_birder, link to event in bio!

Did you know? The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah has been described by scientists as "the richest bee landscape reported to date." More than 650 bee species are now identified from the monument. By comparison, there are only about 200 bee species reported for all of New England. Just one more reason to #SaveGrandStaircase! #MonumentsForAll #NationalPollinatorWeek #PollinatorWeek 📷: @mypubliclands

It’s been two full days since I’ve been home.
Back inside four walls with multiple rooms including a kitchen with a refrigerator and running water and a bathroom with a shower and a mirror.
These are things I had begun to comfortably live without over the last six weeks.
Coming back to these old familiar things, back to my home, back to busy city streets and back to a place where I can order, eat and drink what I want, shower when I want etc… has been an experience that I am slowly easing into.
There are so many things that I am catching myself doing differently since I have been home, and I want to share them with you. One thing that being gone, being in the wilderness and in these remote places has taught me is a new level of self awareness that I can’t even quite explain yet.
I am more present and I am more aware.
Aware of how I use things, read things, interpret things, say things and do things.
Although I have and continue to grow into a more minimalist type person, one thing that I am now very aware of is my use of what I now consider luxuries. Like water, lights, utensils, food and even cell phone service.
I am using less things. Consuming less things. Wasting less things.
When I am in a place or with people, my eyes are up. My face isn’t buried in my phone. I am having more conversations and more engaged with people than I think I’ve been in a very long time. I believe that people notice this and appreciate this. Like today, while in line at the grocery store, all of the line in front of me and behind me had their eyes downcast and glued to their phone. Me, I greeted the cashier with my eyes up and it wasn’t your usual “hi, how are you, thank you” passing conversation. I wonder how many of these she gets to have during her workday.
I now realize that I could go on and on and on about how my time on the road has changed me, and it’s only been a few days. There is still so much I’ve yet to experience and come to terms with, but if there is one thing that I am certain of it is that the road is a place that teaches you, and if we really want it to, it can help to change us in all of the aspects of our lives if we let it.

Having seen such an incredible piece of love, makes you believe in True Love . It can be the love for a partner, a friend, family, but it starts from loving yourself first because one who cannot love themselves, can't possibly love someone else. ❤️ #loveyourselffirst
