Pioneers Alliance Hikes Friedman Creek
On Monday, members of the Pioneers Alliance, including Mike Stevens of PMG and colleagues from The Nature Conservancy, Idaho Conservation League and the Bureau of Land Management, toured portions of the Friedman Creek Wilderness Study Area. This is a spectacular and remote area in the heart of the Pioneer Mountains. The area provides superb big game habitat and we were impressed by the extensive beaver activity along Friedman Creek. We hiked for several hours along an overgrown trail along Friedman Creek – the shade and water along the creek were a welcome relief from temperatures in the 90s – and came away amazed at the scale, ruggedness and beauty of the place.
