Some Payette and Boise Pics

Busy today with a variety of projects, so I decided to post a few photos. These are from the Payette and Boise National (former) Forests in Idaho.

Pictures tell a thousand words, so I guess you can draw your own conclusions without my assistance.

I guess us old people just don’t understand. We were told the mission of the National Forests was to provide the citizens with a sustained supply of water and wood. Must of missed something in my old age. The pictures sure don’t look encouraging for sustained supply of either.

No, John, I think you do understand very well. You know double-talk jive when you hear it. You are not fooled for one second.

None of us are fooled; old, young, or in between. The pictures tell the truth. The USFS mission today is the destruction of sustainable resources.

It is horrific, and it must be stopped.

The Multiple Use Sustained Yield Act has, in part, this definition;

“(the) harmonious and coordinated management of the various resources, each with the other, without impairment of the productivity of the land …”

The pictures tell me that there will be massive surface erosion in the near future and for years to come. Obviously the intentional burning especially on the Idaho batholith under extreme weather conditions violates the fundamental principles of the Act.
