I kind of have a thing for the mountains, there’s something pretty badass about being 10,363’ above sea level .

Today we kicked some butt on East Ridge. Came down to a girl who rolled her 4wheeler and broke her arm. Two of our Wilderness First Responders splinted her up and we got her off the mountain. Great job @talonjeppson @wyatt_peter & madeleine for acting quickly. #utah #hikingutah #usfs #wfr #wildernessfirstresponder #nols

Corner searching for a Mineral Survey in Big Creek near the Frank Church Wilderness of No Return. Over 8000 feet elevation. No srrvice..not even radio here. Down below a hidden mountain lake and a truly off-grid cabin.

Sunrise from Tunnel View in Yosemite National Park Monday amidst smoke from the Ferguson Fire. It was eerie at the famous viewpoint channeling Ansel Adams with nobody there but NPS rangers manning checkpoint. Arriving home I’ve had time to reflect on the brutal fire season so far and what we’ve lost. I celebrated my 30th birthday on the fireline at the Ferguson, joining the Horseshoe Meadow Hotshots on a firing operation along Hwy 41. The gift of being present and having the privilege to document history was amazing, coupled with the beauty of Yosemite. However, it was tempered by the stark reality of the passing of Brian Hughes and Braden Varney, and now the most recent LODD at the Ranch Fire. Everyday driving the roads and hiking the fire lines taking pictures I was constantly looking around for snags. The trees were in such bad shape that the feller bunchers (machines that cut down trees) only needed to push on tree trunks with their pneumatic claws, and trees fell right over like matchsticks.
Anyway, where I’m going with this is, I’d like to ask you for a belated birthday present. If you’ve enjoyed the photography and writing I share, may I suggest donating to the @ericmarshfoundationwildland or the @wffoundation ? Even $5 or $10 makes a difference. Perhaps your home was saved by firefighters or you’ve been touched by their selflessness. Here’s an indirect way to β€œbuy them a beer” by helping out two organizations that help out the helpers when they’re in need. The best gift I could receive is knowing my work is having a positive effect on public perception, awareness, and support of the work wildland firefighters do and the new reality facing them. This past week on assignment for the US Forest Service I had a glimpse of having my own skin in the game, missing family events and life moments, the constant need for situational awareness, etc. I’ve only scratched the surface, but your support of those organizations means the world. Be safe out there. - SP

For years I've done some poking and prodding at different trails in the area here trying to reach part of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex via handcycle. Sunday was finally the day, using the Giefer Creek trail which runs into the Great Bear Wilderness

Taking a moment to appreciate the GREEN. As I see picture after picture of the western half of this country literally on fire...I really have to count my blessings, and practice gratitude for my surroundings. Prayers for everyone dealing with/fighting/escaping wildfires, as well as our #nationalparks which are suffering as well.
What are you thankful for today?? #thoughts #nps #usfs #blm #explore #exploreamerica #greentherapy #keepitwild #healing #protectourparks #wildfire #nature #hiking #outdoors #getoutthere #getoutsidemore #optoutside #wilderness #mothernature #wandermore #keepitgreen #conservation #mothernature #trees 🌳❀️🌎❀️🌲

"Wildlife and their habitats cannot speak, so we must and we will." - Theodore Roosevelt
...
Visited the International Wildlife Museum in Tucson, AZ! πŸŒπŸŒ΅πŸ—πŸ§πŸ…πŸƒπŸŸπŸ
This institution was founded to be an educational museum for conservation. It also prominently features a man (and former U.S. President) Teddy Roosevelt, who started out interested in Natural History, then moved on to Conservation! He was a big influence in conservation, national parks, and was an avid hunter and Rough Rider! Very interesting man, and I thank him for being the badass he was! ...
πŸ“œPoster: "Conservation means development as much as it does protection. I recognize the right and duty of this generation to develop and use the natural resources of our land; but I do not recognize the right to waste them, or to rob, by wasteful use, the generations that come after us. " - T.R.

Adventures with @myodfw and @u.s.forestservice ! Pretty lake right? Last Friday was top five craziest things I've ever seen. We hiked up to a tarn in the Three Sisters Wilderness to verify reports of numerous dead elk. From a distance it's hard to tell the difference between the elk and the rocks. Closer inspection (second photo) revealed approximately 19 elk that most likely died in a wet slab avalanche late spring/early summer...but what year they died and why they were up that high on the slope is anyone's best guess. Freaking crazy.
.
All individuals had multiple compound fractures of the leg bones, their soft tissues (i.e., eyes and tongue) were remarkably well-preserved, and their hides looked almost mummified. Melting snow revealed them within the past few weeks, so now they're in the early stages of decomposition (bloat 🀒). It definitely smelled funky.
.
I can't explain how visceral this was to see. I kept replaying their last moments in my head. It was sad, horrifying, and morbidly fascinating. It was also some super sketchy hiking. The melting snow released numerous rocks while we were there. After a rock the size of my dog came clattering down the hill we high tailed it off the slope.
.
Stoked that I got to tag along with ODFW (on my day off). We also had two amazing USFS rangers with us, they kept their eyes peeled for rocks. The rangers also spent most of their day picking up trash, mainly used TP...pack it in pack it out folks!
.
UPDATE: An ODFW employee found a photo of No Name Lake from summer 2015. The slope was free of ice and snow. Additionally, an @oregon_bha member who was familiar with this herd saw them quote often in 2016. Thus, it's likely the elk died late spring/summer 2017.
