Getting Stuff Done

Long time Las Vegas Conservationist, and Friends of Nevada Wilderness Board Member John Hiatt is working to protect the ancient Bristlecones on the summit of 11,070 Griffith Peak in the Mount Charleston Wilderness ...yes it was raining & hailing...Go John!
The photo above John shows one the campfire rings with a little bit of ancient Bristlecone wood next to the ring ready to stoke the flames. The Bristlecone in the background has been plucked clean for firewood...we can do better.

BTW- The was our first official project in Las Vegas during my watch. What a way to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, with lightning, thunder, hail, rain, wind, and get it all captured by a newspaper man and then see it on the front page of the area biggest newspaper. Oh my gosh it just doesn't get any better than that...Really Good Stuff!
