#unplug when was the last time you gave yourself an evening to unplug? With or without company, to just be one with nature and listen instead of talk. If you can remember please put it in the comments. Beautiful #starrynight in #julian #lakecuyamaca #sandiegomountains #52weeksofnature
I went out to do a photo shoot with a colleague. The initial location was a beach which disappeared in high tide, but we walked over and discovered another super magical spot which was perfect as the sun was receding. Just amazing colors and ocean action.
Caught the last of the snow this week. Fun times were had! #snowcamping #wildish #kosciuszko

Finally Friday! Who’s going on an adventure this weekend? ... This photo reminds me what it feels like to be the tallest human in South Dakota, watching over the wilderness unfolding below. It’s a view through the old stone fire tower on Black Elk Peak – the tallest peak east of the Rockies.  You’d think it would be a triumphant feeling; a feeling of accomplishment after hiking for hours up a mountain. Instead, I felt God’s whisper. There’s history on this peak, a sacred history that commands reverence. . . . #35mm #kodak #ektar100 #nikonf4 #buyfilmnotmegapixels #southdakota #blackelk

Can’t wait for winter when everyone’s too scared to be cold
Bella came home with me 9 years ago today! Time has flown by so fast and I can’t believe my bear has shared so many life milestones with me. I’d like to think she’s loved every minute of our adventures together, and I will continue to show her everything I can in this world.
The start to my very first VIA FERRATA I MURREN l GIMMELWALD. Dating back to the 19th century, Via Ferrata’s were originally built to help people connect their remote villages to mountain pastures. They became popular during World War I when they were used to move troops through difficult alpine terrain. . . . #viaferrata #viaferratamürren #viaferratamurren #ironpath #climbingpath #switzerland #travelswitzerland #hiking #mountains #lauterbrunnen #lauterbrunnenvalley #optoutside #52weeksofnature #visitswitzerland #klettersteig #freshairandfreedom #gopro #goprophotography #goprohero5 #goprohero5black #adventure #imhooked #swiss #gimmelwald #murren
Trying something new.
Sometimes, I know that no shot I take can possibly do the scene justice, and I'm compelled to just stand there and look, listen, breathe, and absorb as much as I can for the memory. And then, take the shot, anyway... #flashbackfriday ——- ——————————————#livefree #traveldeeper #peoplescreatives #lifeofadventure #liveauthentic #createyourtrail #pictureline #TrustTheWild #Earthofficial #theoutbound #ourplanetdaily #neverstopexploring #tetonsports #stayandwander #exploretocreate #liveforthestory #outside_project #AwaketheSoul #wildernessculture #tentreeambassador #roamtheplanet #tentree #optoutside #wanderfolk #visualsoflife #52WEEKSOFNATURE
Life is a chance to do things your way; not the cheapest way, not the most popular way, and not how others think you should... Norway can’t wait to come back! 🇳🇴

Can’t help but love the colors in this shot. Really don’t know how these things survive such bad fires... the ground beneath them was covered in several feet of ash
Sleeping under the desert stars leaves you awe struck in the face of overwhelming constellation beauty. Joshua Tree is perhaps one of the most unique parks in the US and a local favorite from our home in Southern California to hit routes and hikes. Our friend and talented photographer @samgoldinphoto spent some time in J Tree exploring what its vast land has to offer. Heavy, heavy stoke followed 33.8734° N // 115.9010° W

blissful mornings .
After growing up among the zillion acres of concrete in Houston, where the heat and mosquitos chase you inside 11 months out of the year, I'm so glad to now live in a world where Fall happens. I'm blessed with the ability and opportunity to get out there and enjoy it, and if you are too then don't take it for granted! 🍃🍁🍂 From Custer Gallatin National Forest a few weeks ago.
No matter how far you’ve gone on the wrong path you can always turn around.
Went out & gave my heart to another mountain range. Perhaps I fall in love too easy, but it’s hard not to when you’re given views like this. //

“Coexist” ~ Sharks have been on this earth for over 400 million years... mankind has been around for such a small fraction of that time. In that time however, we have managed to decimate the shark population. Stemming from greed, fear and ignorance, approximately 100million sharks are killed each year. What many fail to realize, is how crucial sharks are to our oceans. By removing the top predator from the ecosystem, the entire system will fail. This phenomenon is known as a trophic cascade, and has been observed many times. Sharks are not to be feared. It is possible to coexist and share the waters with this amazing animal. In many ways, our survival and the health of our oceans is linked to the preservation of these amazing creatures 🌊 🌏 🦈💙 . Music: “Jurassic Park theme” ~ covered amazingly by @taylordavisviolin

The first snowfall of the season arrived just before the road closed for winter. I’m glad I was able to see this place when crowds were absent and the beauty was peaking. #52weeksofnature #hiking #inyonationalforest #inyo #californialakes #ourwild #greatestshotsoflandscape #hiking .collective #hikingfriends #naturegrampixels #Rebels_Nature #saveourplanet #tgif_nature #thenorcalcollective

It’s Scenic Sundays! In honor of Earth Day and the beginning of National Park Week, today’s photograph is of the Lower Falls from Uncle Tom’s trail at the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone in Yellowstone National Park (@yellowstonenps ). I chose today’s photo because Yellowstone was the first National Park and it shows people enjoying the spectacles of nature (if you look closely), which felt appropriate on Earth Day. Earth Day was started in 1970 to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the U.S. E.P.A. and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. The importance of Earth Day and these Acts cannot be forgotten today! The Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River are 308-feet high and the volume of water varies from 63,500 gallons per second at peak runoff to 5,000 gallons per second in the late fall. A notch in the lip of the brink makes the water deeper and keeps it from mixing with air and becoming frothy, so it appears darker and green as it goes over the edge. I took this photo in June of 2012. We hiked down to the bottom of the canyon and were able to catch this amazing view complete with a rainbow in the mist! What an incredible view and natural feature. I love this photo because of the beautiful colors of the rock formations and the water, and the beautiful rainbow! Let’s not lose sight of protecting our natural wonders and being healthy stewards for the environment.

It’s Scenic Sundays! Today’s photograph is of Cliff Geyser and Iron Spring Creek at the Black Sand Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone National Park is world renowned for its geysers, hots springs, and other thermal features. It sits on a large caldera of magma and is constantly releasing that hot heat and stem in various forms. Everyone knows the geyser Old Faithful, but did you know there are over 500 geysers in Yellowstone (over 60 percent of the world’s geysers)?! Cliff Geyser is located in the Black Sand Basin on the Grand Loop Road close to the area of Old Faithful. A. C. Peale, geologist for the 1872 Hayden Expedition, named this feature for its cliff-like wall of geyserite formed around the crater and for its location on the edge of Iron Spring Creek. An indication of a pending eruption is that the crater nearly fills with boiling water. As the eruption begins, jets of water explode through the pool 15 to 40 feet high. The interval is irregular, lasting between a half hour to 18 hours, and there may be weeks or even years of dormancy. I took this photo in June of 2012. We were lucky enough to make it to the Black Sand Basin during an eruption of Cliff Geyser! I like this photo because of the geyser erupting and the beautiful contrast between the blues and greens of the creek and the oranges and yellows of the bacteria mats running off from the hot springs in to the creek.

Scenic Sundays! I will be posting scenery/landscape pictures on Sundays and here’s the first. Today’s photograph is sunrise over Bryce Canyon National Park. Bryce Canyon is located near Bryce, Utah, was designated a national monument by President Warren G. Harding on June 8, 1923, and it officially became a national park in February 25, 1928. Bryce Canyon is known for its “hoodoos.” Hoodoos are tall skinny spires of rock that protrude from the bottom of arid basins and "broken" lands. Hoodoos are most commonly found in the High Plateaus region of the Colorado Plateau and in the Badlands regions of the Northern Great Plains. While hoodoos are scattered throughout these areas, nowhere in the world are they as abundant as in Bryce Canyon. At Bryce Canyon, hoodoos range in size from that of an average human to heights exceeding a 10-story building. Formed in sedimentary rock, hoodoo shapes are affected by the erosional patterns of alternating hard and softer rock layers. Hoodoos are formed by weathering processes that continuously work together in eroding the edges of the Plateau. I took this sunrise photo of the Canyon in July of 2017 at Sunset Point. I love how the warm glow of the sun dances magically on the orange and red hoodoos of the valley below as the fog begins to lift. I vividly remember the air getting colder and colder that morning until the moment when the sun popped over the horizon and began to warm the Canyon. It was an unforgettable experience, even at 6am!
