The moment before the storm atop Cerro Colorado, Patagonia. Climbing here not only revealed not only incredible route potential but more insight into the complex Patagonia conservation story. To get to the cliff we enlisted the help of Domingo, a Gaucho whose family owns the surrounding land at the base. He grew up herding sheep here - “when I was 11 my father had me spend 3 months living up at the base of the rocks to tend the sheep living in the cave previously occupied by the Tehuelche Native tribes”. Laying on his sheep skin mat he looked incredulously at us, our drones and junk-show of climbing/camera gear. I don’t speak spanish, so I gathered a few tidbits of info from @andresbozzolo but overall I sensed the conflict going on inside of him. Due to the conservation work this place is on the verge of becoming a National Park and it became illegal to kill foxes and puma, and with those populations surging and killing the flock it became impossible to keep the family sheep tradition alive. ~

The future of this place is probably some kind of advanced sustainable eco-tourism (like @tompkins_conservation has done in Parque Patagonia), something Domingo can’t quite grasp yet. I’m sure in the moment he hoped it didn’t mean more gringos like me taking his photo. His culture even though it’s non-native and originated from the spanish in the 1600’s has evolved into something beautiful, something of its own.
It’s a similar struggle all over the planet. How do we move forward and do the right thing for these wild places while educating and helping those who already have the deepest connection to the land?

We didn’t see Domingo again since the horses went down the hill before we finished climbing. We hiked away as he lounged with his nephew on the soft grass by a natural spring. “I had a way of whistling to the dogs and could control the entire herd. My nephew never learned to whistle, he has a cell phone and other work...” ~

A starry night begins in the Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. Without this gentle light painting, the foreground would be pitch black. The sky is still unspoiled and naturally dark in this area away far from major city lights. The park is also known for striking rock formation, narrow gorges, wonderful hikes.

SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs has an adoptable dog from DOWN UNDER! And that ear though! Meet Buddy! He's full of energy and overflowing with cuteness! And he's up for adoption in the Melbourne, Australia area. Buddy was surrendered by his former elderly owner who was unable to take care of him anymore. He will do best with a family who is looking for a well-trained dog, but who can also keep up with his youthful spirit. Buddy may be a "senior," but Buddy is anything but retired! He still ADORES playing fetch with his tennis ball and his puppy-like antics will keep you entertained for years to come.
@second.chance.animal.rescue wrote, "Buddy is a lovable, high energy, inquisitive, spoilt cutie. He's enthusiastic and loves playing tug of war, soccer and fetch, and he will play for as long as you can keep up with him! He's toilet trained and easy to get in bed at night. Buddy must be an only dog at home as he's terrified of other dogs and cats. He's also a fussy eater who likes to get his own way, but you can't help but adore him when he gives you his belly and grins! He initially is shy but once he warms up he fully bonds to his family. Due to his shyness, young children are not recommended. Lastly, Buddy has some arthritis in his knees that will need ongoing supplements for." Buddy is up for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue located in Epping, Australia - just 30 minutes north of Melbourne.
To adopt Buddy, please email with questions or to submit an application.

A polar bear rests on an ice floe in the Arctic Ocean. As more polar ice melts each year, the polar bear's habitat will continue to shrink. Scientists estimate that their population will decrease by 30 percent by the year 2050.
