HAPPY PRESIDENT'S DAY !!! Happy deserts, mountains and forests from the Joshua Tree to the Mojave from Santa Monica to Manhattan from Sea to Sea from Me. ...Happy Birthday America. 
President Barrack Obama today designated three new national monuments in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
They are the Sand to Snow National Monument, Mojave Trails National Monument, and Castle Mountains National Monument, and the administration says they’ll protect approximately 1.8 million acres of landscapes, fragile wildlife habitat, historic resources and important cultural sites.
The new monuments connect Mojave National Preserve, Joshua Tree National Park, San Bernardino National Forest, and fifteen wilderness areas previously designated by Congress, creating a contiguous mass of protected lands stretching hundreds of miles.
