Photo by @FransLanting Beyond the National Parks and National Monuments we’re all familiar with, there are scores of other public lands in the USA that are administered by the Department of the Interior. The American idea of preserving large wild landscapes for all generations to come has been an inspiration to many people in many countries around the world, and my hope is that the US can continue to be a beacon. The Bureau of Land Management is charged with looking after many millions of acres of wilderness areas, but it barely has the resources to do so. And that is before the cutbacks that are now being contemplated in Washington, D.C. Here’s one amazing place I discovered while doing an aerial survey of the Colorado Plateau on assignment for @NatGeo. It’s called the San Rafael Swell and it’s located in central Utah; it’s remote, but that does not mean it’s protected forever. Imagine what this landscape would look like if there were access roads for mineral extraction. Add your voice to the conversation if you care. Check the links below to find out what you can do. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of these special places. @WildernessSociety @thephotosociety @leonardodicaprio #MonumentsForAll #beauty #naturelovers #naturephotography #wilderness #America #Conservation
