    What a amazing gift!! I wish I was awash with money so I could do something like this. Very cool. We were just up in that valley staying with Dan and Nancy at Beartooth (what a class act they are!) and asked if there were easements in the Madison Valley the way that there are in the Sawtooths. Guess this answers that!

    I believe that Madison County has more land, percentagewise, under conservation easement than any other county in the US. I’m not completely sure on that, but I’ve seen it in the recent past somewhere. Sun Ranch is a pretty awesome property, even if does have a few hooved locusts running around.

    I am not sure if I am not mixing ranches but is Sun Ranch the same where the ranch run over the wolf?

    Yes, it is. They’ve shot a few too, with a permit. There have been several previous threads on this blog that discuss the Sun Ranch activities.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
