Hello NWP friends,
We’ve just posted below the last diary filmed by Adam Bradley as he finished up the SWIP trip. He made it during the very last day—Day 16—of walking. He had lots to say! - 30 minutes or more, in fact. And while hanging with Adam and talking for 30 minutes—or several hours—is always great, we’ve edited this diary down to about 6 minutes. Better format to satisfy the antsy demands of digital communication.
We think you’ll like it. He talks about the abundant wildlife he experienced in the Mojave, muses on bighorn sheep habitat and that animal’s need for landscape connectivity, and just offers up some final thoughts on his whole experience out there on the SWIP.
For us, it represents a pivot in our story-telling about the Southwest Intertie Project. The 16-day trip is over, but the stories will unfold for a long time. They won’t all be directly related to the SWIP—we are working on a number of other issues affecting public lands and wilderness around the state—but what we learned out there is informing and helping us advance many of our goals for “smart from the start” renewable energy development. And that has been an invaluable outcome of the Trip.
