Healing a Wounded Wilderness (Payette National Forest, Idaho)
On a trail thousands of years old, CMarie sits among the wildflowers near the South Fork Salmon River and watches a tractor cover a fifty-year-old logging road. Maybe someday a woman sitting with her dog in the same place won't know a logging road was ever there at all.
This episode takes place on Nimiipuu, Tukadeka, Shoshone Paiute, and Shoshone Bannock homelands.
