As winter settles into the Rocky Mountains we, who live here, hunker in and watch. We watch the snowflakes fall, watch fingers and toes when the cold gets extreme, watch our friends' faces for frostbite, and watch the forecasts for the next big dump bringing fresh powder and smiles on the faces of skiers, and frowns on the faces of the pilots. Unless, of course, the pilot also is a skier☺
Latest Flight Mission
A recent flight in Utah revealed the wildness of federal public lands like Bears Ears and the Greater Canyonlands, and the heavy industrial impacts to state lands like the tar sands at PR Springs. State lands in this case tended to be managed more for profit, with less regard for the condition of the land and water. The land speaks for itself when looking at the issue of states taking over federal land. Have a look and see if you can tell the difference between federal and state lands here.
