Don't Take That Photo! The U.S. Forest Service Might Fine You $1,000

Grateful to author and researcher David Paulides, of the 411 books, for this link, who posted it on his FB page.



If you're not familiar with the work of Paulides, I encourage you to read his books. He has done in depth research into disappearances in the forests of the United States and Canada, and what he has discovered will surprise the hell out of you I'm sure. Eerie and strange, and veers into areas that might be unexpected for some. Hugely important in my opinion, and believe me, you'll rethink how and when you venture into the woods.

Don't Take That Photo! The U.S. Forest Service Might Fine You $1,000: Hey hikers, that scenic forest photo you just posted on Instagram may cost you a thousand dollar fine. According to a proposed update to U.S. Forest Service regulations, still photography or video taken in any of its 439 Federal Wilderness Areas is subject to permitting (costing up to $1,500) or you can face a $1,000 fine per photo.

A little-noticed USFS “interim rule” has been in place for four years, and is now being updated to include new restrictions on vaguely defined “commercial filming” in wilderness areas.
