Here’s What You’ll Be Protecting….

Just by being a pain in the hind end to your politician. These are fabulous shots of the Rockies! Check them out.

It is no wonder really why 2.2 million people have sent letters for road-less areas to remain that way. Me personally? I’ve been to the Washington areas they speak of but interestingly enough I never took a camera. I cannot really say why but of course I’ll never forget what I’ve seen.

If you wander up the foothills up by the Sullivan Lake area – and start to go back country you run into signs that says, “know your bears” because that’s where the grizzlies hang out, make babies and eat berries. I also ran into a set of twin moose in that area – you can’t call a moose small – even when they are babies. We camped on Harvey Creek over there and the first day three deer walked through our camp while Joe was cooking breakfast. Sincerely, that area is probably one of the most beautiful areas in Washington state.

    aullori,

    Thanks for posting this!

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could take a few people with us into these areas so they could get a feel for it themselves?

    I’ve been into some of the mountains in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho and know how beautiful it is there too.

  2. Hi Terry – I guess in case anyone looks at the site this region is protected under the act as well (it’s in the text under section 105) which is actually pretty exciting for me and worthy of mention. Anywhere it mentions Colville National Forest – that’s us. They go a step further as well tho and added Oregon too. This really is a law for the Pacific Northwest. My guess? They did that to get votes and I’d be shocked if the final bill actually contains the Kettle Mountain Range and the Oregon areas. They will leave in the Selkirk area tho, that area is also part of the Colville National Forest – which is in the area I mentioned at the north eastern tip of the state. It’s believed by scientists that that area part of the bioregion of the Rockies. Here’s why?

    I simply left that out of the text and should have put it in – so anyone local understands it’s about our state too.
