Today we did a group expedition/survey into the Copper Mountain area. Several Stewards had reported that this is a beautiful area, mostly BLM land (if not all), that has plenty of amazing vistas, wild plants and so on.

It is also an area frequented by ORVers, gun shooters, and trash dumpers. We decided to do a hike on a weekday (less gunfire going on then!) in the area and get an idea of what’s involved in saving the area from further damage. What a success. We hiked deep up into the area and explored mines, shooting sites and more. We also gathered quite a bit of trash. Stay tuned as we’re planning on doing these steward hikes once every two weeks or so. Thanks to all who joined!
