Celebration and Action Through All Seasons

The glow from Earth Day week is fading.  With a week of great events honoring mother earth, we know it’s hard to sustain that kind of intensity.  But honoring, enjoying and helping our planet is really a year round way of life, even as the seasons change.

Our last winter hike went to the top of Scotchman Peak on Saturday and already the photos remind us that the winter season is nothing more than a memory now melting away as spring rain falls softly outside.

Before we forge ahead into summer, we’d like to invite you to hold onto the feeling of Earth Day and TAKE ACTION.  Ask members of our Idaho Congressional Delegation to support wilderness designation for the Scotchmans!  Click on the link below:


And, as a treat, we hope you will linger with us a few moments with the wonderful images from our last winter hike captured by Andrew Klaus in this 2 1/2 minute video:
