Hi there! AZ Nature has several mods so sometimes submissions get lost in our very long queue. :) I’ve gone through and moved recent submissions to the top and they’ll start posting right away! Thanks!

The Wilderness Society recently published Desert showcase: A look at America’s desert wilderness areas, a great article about the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act that features 11 “stunning American desert wilderness areas.”

Seven of the 11 places are managed by the Bureau of Land Management. And the BLM-managed Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness in New Mexico tops the list.

Read the full article and learn more about your American wilderness areas!

Want to win a free book? I highly recommend all of Cosmic Ray’s books if you can ever find them at any local used book stores. Anyway, according to Amazon:
The most well known and well loved mountain bike trail guide to the best summer and winter fat tire fun in Arizona. Cartoony, down to earth maps are adapted from topos and forest service charts, yet are friendly and easy to use. Maps are to scale and oriented north.
Each humorous route description includes distance, time, effort and skill required, best season to ride, level of route finding skill required, contour profile and “fear factor”. There is also a step by step mileage log when applicable. A “preferred trail” icon is used to indicate a particularly great ride in a given area for those on a limited time schedule. Rides are included for all levels of ability, but emphasis is given to the intermediate / advanced rider. A few severe / extreme rides are also included for those on the lunatic fringe.
This book is being offered to one lucky follower! Simply follow Arizona Nature and reblog this post for a chance to win. Winner will be announced on April 22!

Night of the Blood Moon, Flagstaff, AZFlagstaff is a “Dark-sky" city that has reduced its light pollution so the high elevation can be utilized to see the night sky perfectly.  (Make sure to check out Lowell Observatory, which is located just up the ridge from my home.)  Everyone was looking at the moon last night, but they weren’t thinking about how bright the stars are once it disappears…
