Private Tour Company Legislation Continues to Move in Congress 

US Senate Bill 873, The America’s Outdoor Recreation Act (AORA), received a hearing before the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship on Wednesday, November 1, 2023. The AORA does for private tour companies providing outdoor recreation what the 1872 Mining Act did for mineral extraction, opening the doors to federal land recreational commercialization. This comes at a time when federal land managers across the country are seeing record levels of do-it-yourself recreational demand.

Photo Rematching 2021

With historically low water levels in the reservoir behind Glen Canyon Dam, an expedition was made in the Fall of 2021 to match historical photos with photos of the current setting in upper Glen Canyon. We went out again in the Fall of 2022 and did more photo rematching.
