    Check this out “Humans banned on lands near Gunnison”


    They must be getting really nervous about Gunnison sage grouse listing.

    Any chance they are going to try to blame the snow on wolves?

  3. Heather says:

    probably! and also that it is proof there is no global warming/climate change.

  4. Mike says:

    Great news. Snowpack has been way down in the northern Rockies. Hopefully you guys don’t get another warm spring that melts the stuff.

    Hopefully we don’t get a shift in the jet stream any time soon. We’re (in Idaho) only about 70-75% of only a normal water year so far with only a couple more months to go.

‎"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."
