On the 43rd day…

Yesterday, western Montana tied a record that has stood for 116 years; 42 days without any measurable precipitation. Finally, in the middle of last night, there was an hour of good rain!

At higher elevations it was celebrated a little differently.

Our roadless National Forest land.

This past week the United States Supreme Court denied the state of Wyoming’s petition to review the Roadless Area Conservation Rule case bringing very good news for the millions of Americans who appreciate and want to protect the nation’s 58 million acres of pristine roadless forest land. The Roadless Rule affects all Americans because it protects land in our National Forests, land that is owned by ALL Americans, not just those in the states where the land lies. Press release by The Wilderness Society

Following are a few photos showing land that is not protected by the rule and then a few of National Forest land that is protected.
