Hidden within a vast high desert plateau are deep canyons carved by the Owyhee, Bruneau and Jarbidge Rivers in a remote area of southwestern Idaho. Nearly 40 miles of Bruneau River's 50-mile total length are designated as wild. Volcanic caves, canyons and spire-like hoo-doos tower hundreds of feet above whitewater rafters in this unique environment of unsurpassed solitude and unique beauty. In early spring, this area brightens up with beautiful desert flowers contrasted sharply against the dark volcanic rock. The sagebrush plateaus of the Owyhee Uplands provides habitat for over 200 species of wildlife. Soaring eagles and hawks can often be seen flying over the skylines and nesting along the cliff faces here. The ancestors of the Shoshone-Paiute and Shoshone-Bannock people have used these canyonlands for thousands of years for shelter, weaponry, fish and game and water. From placid pools to turbulent whitewater; from vertical cliffs to steep grassy slopes, this area presents visitors with challenging and extraordinary experiences. ​ #bureauoflandmanagement #idaho #idahome #bruneauriver #wildandscenicriver #findyourway #getoutside #landscpae #scenic #whitwater #rafting #instagood​
This bobcat stopped to pose for BLM Clay Stott while he was out this summer in Wyoming. The BLM manages more fish, wildlife and plant habitat than any other federal or state agency in the country. More than 3,000 species of wildlife live on BLM-managed public lands. ​ #bureauoflandmanagement #mypubliclands #wyoming #wildlife #bobcat #scenic #instagood​
Western B movie
Definitely one of the more emotional days so far. I was close to getting on, I felt it. To clarify. I got the western saddle on no problem and I applied pressure to the horn and pommel, imitating body weight. He was a little tense then started to relax. I felt the time was right so I went to put my foot in the stirrup, but not going to get on. He ran off, so we pushed him more. We pushed him too far, it was my mistake. I messed up. I just don't know what to do at this point I feel lost with him. - - - #flynn #mustang #georgia #wildhorse #bureauoflandmanagement #training
I'm taking the next step in my career as an agency archaeologist. In mid-November, I'll be reporting to the BLM Norman (OK) Field Office. #blmnewmexico #bureauoflandmanagement #normanok #archeology #archaeology #plainsarchaeology #boomersooner
