The Peak of Beauty

Boulder White Cluods

Here’s a gorgeous shot of America’s newest wilderness: Boulder White Clouds in Idaho. This week, President Obama signed a bill into law that protects nearly 276,000 acres of Idaho’s high mountain backcountry as wilderness – an area of the country that is home to crystal lakes and abundant wildlife. The Sawtooth National Recreation Area and Jerry Peak Wilderness Additions Act preserves Jim McClure-Jerry Peak Wilderness, White Clouds Wilderness and Hemingway-Boulders Wilderness.
