CONTACT AN ARCHAEOLOGIST

Preserve Rollins Pass facilitates straightforward access to area experts, including archaeologists, who have a vested interest in preserving the heritage of Rollins Pass. Should any historic or prehistoric item be found on the pass, please leave the item in place (don’t pocket the past) and fill out the form on this page or email [email protected], and your message will be forwarded to area experts, including professional archaeologist Dr. Jason LaBelle.

DRONE REGULATIONS

Drones or unmanned aerial systems (UAS) provide a magical view of the world from above, yet the joys of flight and flying a drone need to be coupled with adherence to regulations set forth by both the US Forest Service (USFS) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Do not rely on your drone to tell you if you are allowed to fly at a particular location or in a specific area. Use Aloft Air Control (available for iOS, Android, as well as a stand-alone web application) or the Air Aware app (iOSAndroid, or web app) before taking off to ensure the airspace isn’t closed by a TFR, wilderness, or for other reasons. It is your responsibility to safely and compliantly fly your drone for the benefit of continued access with drones in the national airspace.

MOUNTAIN FLYING

Experiencing Rollins Pass from the air should be an ongoing adventure, not a life-threatening one. Learn more about safe mountain flying with resources from the FAA Safety Team.
