BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT
Most of this high desert is controlled by the Bureau of Land Management and the bureau has historically managed the land for grazing. But in recent years as more people ventured into the desert for various activities the bureau added a bigger recreation element to the way the lands are managed. Max Yingst, who works out of Twin Falls, is the BLMs recreation planner for the “Borderlands” area.
“This is definitely true high desert. The only thing that makes it fairly unique from other high desert is these beautiful canyons that are cut by these drainages and each of them in a sense is a little bit different than the other one…and every one of them has a unique little system that is just unbelievable in beauty…
