Letter: Thompson Divide hikes this weekend

Thompson Divide hikes this weekend

Dear Editor:

This weekend I will be leading hikes up into the Thompson Divide with the Wilderness Workshop. In both hikes we will be exploring currently leased land, and looking for sensitive wildlife and vegetation which could help the Wilderness Workshop’s legal work to protect the Thompson Divide.

Saturday we are hiking up Thompson Creek through fur and spruce forest to a couple of SG Interests’ proposed well sites. Sunday we are headed up East Willow, the largest unprotected roadless area in the state, home to prime elk habitat and vast aspen groves. Sign up and learn more about either of these hikes on the Wilderness Workshops web page at http://www.wildernessworkshop.org/events-page/summer-hikes/.

Hope to see you on trail.
