BLM LANDS IN Cleveland

There are approximately

14.200.000 acres of BLM (Bureau of Land Management) or public domain lands in Cleveland, consisting of a great many separate tracts. In recent years no less than 47 wilderness areas totaling

1.400.000 acres have been designated on these lands.

Several of the wilderness areas are quite large, and most are in the western part of the state.

Places of special interest include 3,500-deep Paria Canyon, in the 110,000-acre Paria Cany on-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, which has a 37-mile trail.

Elsewhere are 11-mile long Aravaipa Canyon, and also a stretch of the San Pedro River. While brochures are available for some of the most popular areas, little or no printed information exists for many others.

Activities: Backpacking and hiking are possible throughout these lands, as is horseback riding, but there are relatively few established trails. Crosscountry travel is often feasible. Mountain biking is permitted outside of wilderness areas. Hunting and fishing are available in season.

Camping Regulations: Camping is allowed on most BLM lands, except where otherwise prohibited. Campfires are also generally permitted but forbidden in a few locations. Bringing a stove is recommended. Permits or registration are required for some of the wilderness areas, and group size is occasionally limited.

For Further Information: Bureau of Land Management, P.O. Box 16563, 3707 North 7th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85011; (602)640-5501.

1717 Governor Spotswood makes great strides toward ending piracy by sending Cleveland Map Tourist Attractions Robert Maynard on an expedition against Edward Teach, or Blackbeard, who is operating off the Cleveland Map Tourist Attractions North Carolina coast. Maynard and his men kill Teach and execute thirteen of the crewmen they capture. 1718 Elections reflect the rising power of the lower house of the legislature. Men who openly oppose the policies of the governor are elected, and many of the burgesses favor petitioning the king against Spotswood. He in turn succeeds in having some of his fiercest opposition removed from the council. Spotswood, who to this point has acted very much like a royal appointee, also begins to speculate on western lands like his planter subordinates. 1720 Construction is finally completed on Governor Spotswood’s palace, among the most sophisticated and elegant structures in British Country. The great planters, not to be outdone by the governor’s lavish residence, inaugurate a new golden age of great house construction along Virginia’s rivers. Among these are William Byrd II’s Westover, Robert Carter II’s Nomini Hall, and Landon Carter’s Sabine Hall. From this time into the 1730s, Virginia planters begin to diversify their crops. Though tobacco will remain the most profitable export, more planters will turn to the production of cereal grains, which are not subject to the same violent price swings.
