Good morning! I am writing this morning from a campsite that is on OUR Public Lands just outside the Targhee National Forest in Clark County, Idaho. I am “disperse” camping and what that means is that this campsite is off the beaten track, has a fire ring and is well away from other people and is on the public lands that Rob Bishop and his ilk want to steal from us. Screw them. We will fight to keep this public.

It is a beautiful campsite, up high, on one side it has a small aspen grove and on the other there are willows. Plus this section of the National Forest is unknown to me.

Gotta go. Have exploring to do!

Life is good.

    Your campsite looks beautiful. Speaking of Rob Bishop, he and Jason Chaffetz will soon unveil their compromise plan that will allow some mineral development in the Bear Ears area. Several tribal leaders however, have already abandoned that proposal and are urging President Obama to name over 1.8M acres of the region as a national monument; this will help protect wild Utah from the destructive developers.

    Rob Bishop wants Targhee, I’d like Yosemite, would you like Yellowstone? I think you could make money selling grazing rights or mining I might prefer Arches, Bryce or a few others…Haven’t decided yet…I just know that if I want them, I should have them…”public” means “mine” to me.

    Never heard of “disperse” camping before though through the kindness of park rangers,more than once, was shown to such a spot…with assurances that though “off the beaten track” they’d make sure I was OK. I was very grateful to them. The spots they found for me were really great…quiet, private and beautiful. I made sure these spots looked as if no one had ever been there when I left, even to scattering duff or bending up grasses…

    I like the way you think Mia… I’ve camped in such areas in my life, many times,
    and I wouldn’t take a zillion dollars for the memories. Have fun, and enjoy every
    minute. Record every precious moment in your mind, because one of these days
    those memories will be all that remains of the experience. Yes, Mia, “life is good.”
    I hope to see some of those “memories” that you see with your eyes, and capture
    on pixels…. . ;-)))
