“We need to preserve some islands of natural beauty and they aren’t many left.”

An excellent little film about raising awareness to protect the largest unfenced area in the continental United States. The Red Desert is a high altitude desert and sagebrush steppe located in south-central Wyoming, comprising approximately 9,320 square miles.  If you’ve ever driven through Wyoming on I-80, you’ve actually been through it. In the face of encroaching development encouraged by the oil and gas lobby, several Wyoming conservation groups have banded together to organize a trail race that brings runners, local stakeholders and concerned citizens together to experience this unique landscape and see exactly what is at stake.
