Sunrise in the Valley of the Gods, a spectacular backcountry area in a southeastern Utah home to precariously perched pinnacles, isolated buttes and wide open vistas. Not only is it stunningly beautiful, it is also a sacred land for the local Diné, or Navajo people. In 2017 Trump rolled back all protection for this land following a lobbying campaign by a uranium firm, led by Andrew Wheeler, who now heads the EPA. .

Video by @renan_ozturk | Ten miles into a remote canyon in what was formerly #BearsEarsNationalMonument, we found ourselves in this moment. “That was the loudest noise I’ve experienced” @kylor mentioned after a five-minute period of sitting still with his eyes closed in what seemed like absolute silence. It’s hard for most of us to understand the native connection to this land but these brief experiences give us a small glimpse. Please visit and support @protectbearsears to find out more! Thanks @kylor for this magical edit and @trevorhallmusic for the sound #ancestralhealing #bearsearsheals

“As a child, Carleton Bowekaty was a ferociously curious reader. At 20, on summer break from New Mexico State University, he led talks as an interpretive ranger at Mesa Verde National Park. Nearly a decade later, Bowekaty returned home a decorated veteran, honorably discharged as a sergeant in the U.S Army after three tours in Iraq. By 2015, he’d become a councilman for Zuni Pueblo and helped lead the effort to create Bears Ears National Monument. Today, Bowekaty serves his community as lieutenant governor of the Zuni Pueblo and as co-chair of the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition; a storyteller who is as dedicated to preserving and sharing A:shiwi (Zuni) stories as he is to creating prideful new narratives for the entire world to experience. He is also a devoted and proud father of four.” Carleton Bowekaty for @brownenvironmentalist

So much of the #bearsearsnationalmonument @climate_ride was about expansive views and enormous rock formations—but it was always worth pausing to notice the small stuff, too. 🦎🌼🐞

As I’ve gained gratitude for being able to experience wild places on the sharp end myself, I’ve felt compelled to give back to the land. But because this land isn’t just another wilderness – it’s chocked full of evidence of those who came before us – conservation here can’t be just about activism and policy. There’s a more human element of learning how to stand with and behind the coalition of Native American Tribes fighting for Bears Ears. That takes an element of humility I’m still just beginning to learn, knowing that my recreation-based experiences cannot rival the deeply spiritual, traditional, and generational connections of indigenous people. •

Today’s national park image to post on Instagram that I’ve uploaded to Flickr. This is an image I captured one October morning on a drive through the Indian Creek Corridor to Canyonlands National Park. It was only later I came to appreciate that this was also in the area designated for Bears Ears National Monument. The whole setting drew me in with the mesas all around. The lights from the morning and shadows cast...truly an amazing sight and worthy of its monument status! I captured this with my Nikon D800E. #findyourpark #nps #utah #flickr #nikond800e #indiancreekcorridor #bearsearsnationalmonument

Exploring the Black Hole in White Canyon - a 6-hour hike (and SWIM) through an incredible slot canyon in #bearsearsnationalmonument (Sorry about the poor quality video! My phone was inside of a cheap waterproof phone bag - and the square Insta-crop doesn’t help, but you get the idea!) #slotcanyons #whiteriver #desert #protectpubliclands #keeppubliclandsinpublichands #wowutah #utah

Muley Point Overlook with Monument Valley in the distance. Love the new texture slider and focus stacking. And getting excited about this fall’s Bears Ears workshop that I’m co-leading with Bruce Barnbaum. Join us in Bluff, UT the last week of October. #bearsears #bearsearsnationalmonument #muleypoint #landscapephotography #photoworkshop

Indian Creek is flowing powerfully! This portion of the creek was unlawfully cut from #BearsEars in 2017 by President Trump. Visitwww.grandcanyontrust.org/act/expand-bears-ears-national-monument to let your member of #Congress know you'd like Bears Ears #NationalMonument restored!

First arrowhead spotting in the desert for me!! (Notice I took a picture rather than stealing what is not mine😉). Such a great weekend filled with the best type of medicine: lots of love, laughter, and adventure with my besties ❤ .

Be sure to check out this documentary by our friends @utahpandos —ticket link in bio—#standwithbearsears “Common Ground humanizes this polarizing issue, depicting the deep pull within us all to connect with our wild lands. It seeks to bring clarity to the complex and divisive arguments surrounding Bears Ears, while posing a vital question. Can communities with vastly different cultural backgrounds and experience of history find common ground for the sake of future generations?

Don't miss the honest telling of this raw and evolving story that defines a region.” ———————————————————————— Repost @utahpandos | Join us for our documentary premiere of Common Ground: The Story of Bears Ears in Salt Lake on Friday. #bearsears #bearsearsnationalmonument

Behind the scenes taking pictures up high on a cliff there’s a lot more going on than you could imagine. Here are a couple of shots from Indian Creek a few weeks ago. Thanks to Brandon Sirotnack for helping get some alternative angles and playing nice for the camera too. 🌵☀️ 🐻 .
