Big, Beautiful Wyoming. This place can fill you up or leave you empty depending on the day. Sometimes the only reminders that we’re not totally alone out here are the traces of what others have left behind.

Gros Ventre Wilderness

2014.09.10

Some work from three days in early August with a few people who have been instrumental in making sure close to a million acres of Wyoming wilderness are protected for future generations. So incredibly grateful to work with such a passionate and dedicated outdoors reporter, Christine Peterson, and editors who made sure to give this story such great play to mark the 50th anniversary of the national Wilderness Act and the 30th anniversary of the Wyoming Wilderness Act. Oil and gas might fuel Wyoming’s economy in the short term, but these beautiful wilderness areas will never run out so long as we make a point to protect them.
