This ancient site of Pueblo ruins is no longer protected thanks to Trump shrinking the Bears Ears National Monument. Read below to learn how to protect these sites if you come upon them. And Vote Blue if you care.

We got lost in a canyon for 20 hours. 20 hours of radical confrontation. 20 hours of self-reflection. 20 hours of powerful decision making, of survival, of transformation and intentionality. We embarked on this journey together because of the disrespect the United States has shown to #BearsEarsNationalMonument We knew it would be a spiritual journey, but we didn't know how far our souls, our love, and our awareness would be tested. From sleeping overnight in a sandstorm to running out of water twice, #BulletCanyon and #ShieksCanyon of #CedarMesa pushed us in ways we had not anticipated and, in doing so, brought us closer together. #FollowTheWind

I spent most of the third day walking, my bag packed and coffee done before sunrise so I put on my tattered running shoes then set off down the trail, relishing the cool air as the morning arrives in the woods around me.

Sunshine pours over the canyon rim right as the path leaves the increasingly sparse ponderosa, entering the high desert, beginning the gradual sandy ascent through scraggly pinyon juniper forest, alternating between full sun and the mottled shade of the squat desert trees.

I walk and walk, not even taking pictures as the way gradually transitions from sandy footpath in the desert to a lightly used two track winding though meadows in a forested canyon, still hot but with plentiful shade. I find water where an otherwise dry stream bends through bedrock, allowing a seep to fill the channel, forming a narrow pool that was relatively huge and clear. Happily nearby was a small stand of tall thin pine trees, so I decided to wait out the hottest part of the day in the semicircle of shade they cast, cooking part of my dinner, drinking water, and sitting idle while my feet cooled in the breeze.

This day was also the peak of solitude, as the last live human voice I'd heard was a half hour into the trip when I'd had a short conversation about water sources with a dude on his way out though I'd been a bit restless during the warm nights, so I'd listen to podcasts, settling on a good bedtime story- Alone: a Love Story (by @parisegirl link in her bio) because strangely I felt like Fred Savage's character in the Princess Bride, listening to someone's love story unfold, perhaps uncertain at first but soon wondering what next?? There was something amazing about lying down under the ink black darkness and blazing stars of southeast utah, listening to a story that takes place so far away. Most of the time though, I'd enjoyed the relative silence that comes with being free of conversation.

Time passed quickly in the shade, so eventually I shoulder my pack to walk far into the evening, back to aspen and fir, stopping right before sunset to eat the rest of dinner, then stretch out happy and warm in my tent, watching the night sky come alive again

A fascinating documentation of moon phases and lunar eclipses thousands of years old. This painting continued throughout the dwelling, inside and out. A long exposure captures the soft glow of the light reflecting into this sacred chamber!

We decided that the most powerful and respectful way to relate what we have learned would be to share the stories of people’s connections to San Juan County’s public lands, connections that for some span five generations and for others, millennia, and to share their hopes for the future.
Our book is arranged to give personal histories a central role in the telling so that voices can be heard. It is written with the belief that through getting to know and respect each individual and his or her connection to place, we can all move closer to the fundamental human understanding and respect that are essential to discovering common ground.

Foraging Hearts of Reed

Hearts of common reed are edible raw easy to collect (albeit only from rare riparian areas), and taste pretty good for wild desert edibles, with a distinct hot pepper like aftertaste. It’s now been over a month in Bears Ears National Monument.

CLOTHING THAT COUNTS 💜Companies such as @patagonia have created a beautiful platform for businesses to become extremely profitable with social and environmental responsibility. Check out what projects they have lined up this year and how your dollar equates to a vote in campaigns such as the protection of Bears Ears, a million plus acres of weathered sandstone, deep canyons, forests, ancient cliff dwellings and sacred rock art offer world-class opportunities for exploration, solitude and recreation. #lovethegear #bearsearsnationalmonument #protectivestyles #outdooradventure #rockclimbing #trailrunning #mountainbiking #nature #worthprotecting #nationalparks #patagonia #socialchange #adventure #fitness #workout #photography #photographer #adventurephotography #adventurephotographer #ecofriendlyfashion #youmatter #positivevibes #girlswhoclimb #mountainlife #Squamish #vancouver

If you want to check out some of my prints, stop by @fireandhops and grab yourself a cold one. I have a series of metal prints from Indian Creek, Cedar Mesa and the remainder of the reduced #bearsearsnationalmonument #keepitpublic

Almost done. Maybe. I’m serious need some more adventure to find more things to art...looking forward to some free time real soon...#altioropeto #grandgulch #bearsearsnationalmonument

Can you spot the 900 year old kiva? Magnificently hidden sites like this one are under threat by constant and increasingly common looting--which is what it's called when visitors collect artifacts from a site, including surface collection. With summer vacation and increased interest in the #bearsearsnationalmonument please remember to visit these sites with respect. #takeonlypicturesleaveonlyfootprints #visitwithrespect #archaeologyisawesome #cedarmesa #ruins #reportlooters #protectandpreserve #publiclands #dontcollectartifacts #leaveitinplace #southwest #archaeology #utahisrad #schoolsoutforsummer #summer #summers

If you haven’t heard of or driven the Moki Dugway in southern Utah, you are missing out! You climb 1500 feet in less than 3 miles through switchbacks up and over the impressive ridge in the first picture. I just heard about it four days ago and haven’t stopped hearing about it, so I HAD to go! #visitutah #mokidugway #subaru #bearsearsnationalmonument

My 12x12” for the show this summer at the Cole. #bearsearsnationalmonument #charcoal on paper on board. Bid on it and other works to raise money for @sfa_artfriends They help our @art_sfa students do great things...like the recent Iceland trip!

#houseonfire ruins. Kind of hard to see but the rocks have been eroded in such a way as to look like flames. These ruin have NOT been rebuilt or touched in anyway. They are close to 1000 years old. Built by the Anasazi Indians. #impressive #utah #bearsearsnationalmonument #bearsears #mulecanyon

Video by @renan_ozturk // The beginnings of a project about Bears Ears National Monument. When you’re on the ground, you can get lost in the landscape, appreciating one cliff, ruin, or petroglyph. It’s hard to imagine the scale of this place until you see it from above. Once you get into the sky, the formations are revealed and you can see how they are interconnected. ~
