mattmillsphoto Quiet dusk on the Niobrara National Scenic River in the Sand Hills of Nebraska, not too far from the South Dakota border. According to the @usinterior, Niobrara is a crossroads of habitats where many species are on the edge of their range. 83 eastern species reach their western range limits and 47 western species approach their eastern limits here. TransCanada intends to cross this river should the proposed Keystone XL pipeline get approved. I've since headed further south along the route but am looking forward to returning next week. #ogalallaaaquifer #niobrara #river #sandhills #wildlife #keystonexl 6d

mattmillsphoto Reuger, farm dog owned John Harter, faces off with cattle on the farm this afternoon. Harter is the last land owner in South Dakota who refuses to sign an easement that will allow Transcanada to place the proposed Keystone XL pipeline across the family farm. He fears if the pipeline ever leaks into the groundwater it would have dire consequences on a livelihood his family worked three generations to build. Transcanada is threatening to take him to court and force use of the land by eminent domain. #keystonexl #southdakota #cattle #farm 1w

  •   mattmillsphoto Today's office for photo editor duties brought to you by Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest outside of Butte, Montana, underneath a shady tree. It's amazing what a wireless hotspot and portable power/car adapter can do. Ohhhh the possibilities. #butte #montana #greatdivide #subaru #forest #myoffice 2w

mattmillsphoto Passing through LoLo Pass in western Montana during the early morning hours on Saturday, I saw a man frantically waving his flashlight near his car on the side of the road. As my car approached, I quickly learned he had struck a deer and totaled his car. When I stopped to help, we ended up hiking the few hundred feet back to the deer to get it out of the road before it caused another accident. Troy, a roughneck headed to the oil fields near Williston, wasn't injured but was pretty shaken up after the whole ordeal of hitting it at 75 MPH. #latergram #montana #lolopass #I90 #deaddeer 2w
