Photo @pedromcbride / Patterns of #Wilderness — a spruce forest in the Elk Mountains of #Colorado. The Wilderness Act of 1964 protects nearly 110 million acres of #wild lands today in the U.S. It was signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson 50 years ago yesterday. “Wilderness is a resource that can shrink, not grow,” said the renowned ecologist Aldo Leopold.
