Another shot of the Fergunson Fire from Glacier Point road. It was sad to look upon this scene with the fire consuming thousands of acres and the red moon looming over head. . . . . #nationalparklife #neverstopexploring #rei1440project #fergunsonfire #exploring_shotz #indieadventurer #instagood #landscape #fire #exploringtheglobe #getoutside #getout #getoutstayout #beautifuldestinations #california #californiaadventure
[RAINBOW] . - I visited Death Valley to specifically see this spot. I slept in my car in the parking lot, and it was 113 degrees at 1am. Needless to say I didn’t get much sleep, and had to keep turning my car back on to get some AC. . - As I was sweating throughout the night, morning finally rolled around and I was running off of pure excitement to finally witness Zabriskie Point in person. . - After a short walk from the parking lot to the Point, I witnessed the barren and yet absolutely incredible landscape that Death Valley has to offer. . - After waiting for the sun to rise I was expecting some colors, but what I didn’t expect was a rainbow to appear in the frame of WHAT I CAME TO SHOOT! . - This rainbow literally appeared out of nowhere, and perfectly placed in my shot... it’s moments like these that make me realize how amazing surprises are. In this moment I rejoiced in the beauty that was in front of me and thought how all of life is a surprise. . - We never know what is going to happen, and that is literally my favorite part about it. . - @bradharkema . . . . . @deathvalleynps @nationalparklife @goparks @scenicstates @puresouthwest @igsouthwest @abc7la @usinterior

Our favorite thing about Crater Lake NP besides it’s beauty is there little island in it called Wizard Island. Sadly we were not able to go because you have to hike down to the water and that path isn’t dog-friendly. Obviously these rules were made by a bunch of muggles but this view is pure magic. ⚡️ #potterhead #clemtakestheUS
If you had to choose....beach or mountains? ⛰🏖
The raw, rugged beauty of South Dakota's Badlands National Park always awes us.

My first experience in @joshuatreenps was an incredible one! The clouds and rain made shooting the milky way impossible, but it made for one gorgeous sunset! #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #desert #desertsunset #colorfulclouds #summer #summernights #desertphotography #landscapephotography #californianationalparks #somewhereinthedesert #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #nationalparklife
Unbelievable how diverse the coast of Lake Superior is! I wasn’t able to get out on the water this time but I know what I’m doing next time!
The view from Artist Point is surreal. The 308ft tall Lower Falls and Grand Canyon of Yellowstone look like a painting. These places are especially magical early in the morning when most people are asleep. For me, it makes the experience more personal and satisfying. Although I appreciate others who enjoy these places, I also like to feel as though it's just me and Mother Nature. Well, about 20 minutes later, two bus loads of tourists arrived. Needless to say, I left shortly after lol ✌

Repost from @kylepshivers - Mt. Rainier is 14,411 feet tall...coincidentally, that’s also the same number of mosquitoes that I had the pleasure of meeting at this lookout 🙃 . . . . . #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwparadise #pnwlife #thegreatpnw #pnwcollective #pnwexplorations #thatpnwlife #northwestcreatives #pacificnorthwest #upperleftusa #cascadiaexplored #washingtonstate #washingtonexplored #livewashington #wanderwashington #mtrainier #nationalparklife #np10k #national_park_photography #findyourpark #usinterior #usparksandmonuments #wanderlust #stayandwander #wildernessculture #roamtheplanet #usaprimeshot #beautifuldestinations

sunrise, june 2017. can't believe it's been a year since exploring this place. time seems to be passing extra quick since living in australia.
Pretty pinecones (and a little flying photobomber) along the Alpine Lakes Loop at Great Basin NP. #alpinelake #pinecones #nevada #greatbasinnationalpark #greatbasin
First photo of the road trip out west📸 @nolankafafian and I were so excited to finally have our cameras out I think we took about 400 photos each of this same Bighorn Sheep😂at least he looked majestic up on the rocks🦌
The Tetons are Picture Perfect 🏔
Finally getting around to editing photos from Zion and missing the views terribly. #stephanieschulzphoto . . . . . #zionnationalpark #zion #sunset #hikeutah #grandstaircase #nps #texasphotographer #austinphotographer #narrows #findyourpark #nationalparklife
Wishing I was still breathing in the crisp mountain air and feeling the cool mist on my face instead of heading back to work in this horrendous Texas heat, feeling the sweat dripping from my face 🔥 Happy waterfall Wednesday! 💦 #waterfallwednesday #mybanff #optoutside #takemoreadventures #adventureenthusiasts #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #national_park_photography #adventuresofchristine2018
The view from the distant overlook of the lower falls in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. And if you look suuuuppper close, on the right of the top of the falls, you'll see what the view of the close overlook is like for those folks. 😲 . I was told by some random person while we were here (who am I kidding... I was totally evesdropping on a mom teaching her 6 year old) that these very cliffsides in this canyon are the reason Yellowstone is named Yellowstone. Which is honestly a question I had myself so YAY for moms who use times like this as a teachable moment. I thank you. . After we left here, we were determined to go to that close overlook. But ended up at the upper falls overlook instead. We still have no idea how those people got there. . . . #tourtheplanet #liveoutdoors #beautifuldestinations #livetravelchannel #travelwithaninsider #traveltagged #ilovetravel #postcardsfromtheworld #traveldeeper #wherewillwegonext #nationalparkservice #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #findyourpark #national_park_photography #yourshotphotographer #natgeoyourshot #thephotosociety #nikonlove #travelphotographers #travelphotographerssociety #fstoppers #yourshotphotographer #yellowstoneforever #thatswy #yellowstonenps
yes, that’s the real color
•Great Egret• .Unlike herons, egrets are not full-time residents at the canal. They breed in certain areas north and west of here, but are far more abundant and at home in the southeast. It’s always a thrill to capture one of these lovely creatures as they’re passing through. . . . . . . #GoParks #NationalParkService #NationalParkFoundation #NationalParks #FindYourPark #ProtectOurParks #NationalParkPhotography #NationalParkGeek #NationalParksUSA #NationalParkAdventures #NationalParkLife #nationalparkphotography #npsphotography #ourwild #potomacriver #river #wilderness #nature #wildlife #travel #getoutside #exploremore #wearerivers #maryland #MDinFocus #greategret #nikonnofilter #candocanal @nationalparkservice @chesapeakeandohiocanal
Playing with some Lightroom Profiles I made out of a few favorite presets and I got this. It’s a win or should I go back to the drawing board?
It always seems impossible until its done 🗻
Sun and cloud played hide and seek the whole time I was in Teton. But that gave me an opportunity to capture moments like this. The light was not great, but it was enchanting, and if I can convey even one iota of magic that this place has my job is done. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have a preference for the weather that you would love on your vacation, I like milder temperatures not to hot not to cold with some clouds here and there. • • • • • • • #grandtetons #grandtetonnationalpark #mygrandteton #tetons #nationalpark #wyoming #findyourpark #grandtetonfoundation #visitwyoming #discover_wyoming #the59parks #tetoncollective #nationalparkservice #projectexplore #wildernessnation #moodygrams #splendidearth #ourplanetdaily #IamATraveler #traveltagged #beautifulmatters #adventurecollective #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #nationalparklife  #roam  #travelphotography #naturesbestphotomagazine #mountains #clouds
While I look happy to be getting back on the trolley, I wasn’t. It was insanely hot and humid that day, and the trolly did not have AC! . We were roasting and absolutely soaked. . Even worse, part of the site was closed because it was too hot to be inside the non-air conditioned building. But, we did get to see most of the site and I am sure I will be back! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ =============================== #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #nps #goparks #fypyes   #nationalparklife #adventure #exploremore #womenwhoexplore #sheisnotlost #lifeofadventure #wanderlust #travelgram #boston #quincy #johnadams #trolley #fourthofjuly #americanhistory #usa #usatravel #travelmemories #travelmore #stitchfix #femmetravel #girlswhotravel #womenwhotravel

It was all a dream. 🏔☀️💭 __________ Day 2 continued: Second stop of the day was to Dream Lake named after its dream like qualities. Spent a lot of time here eating lunch and enjoying the wildlife. Roughly 1.1 miles from the trailhead it’s an easy hike for most hikers. Last stop of this hike was Emerald Lake, which I’ll be sharing some photos of soon.
I completely forgot that I took this photo the other day because it was in the middle of another shoot! The greens just turned out so pretty though, I couldn’t not share! 🏞 #sharegoodness #crushedicephoto #utahisrad #optoutside #adobelightroom #landscape #nature #sonyalpha #a6000 #uvu #utahphotographer #folkgood #52weeksofnature #natgeo #summertime #nationalparklife #utah
Can you help me? This is 5 of 7 Mt Rainier photos from my recent adventure with my son.

If I had to name this one it would be Rocky Sky Reflection🏔 . .

Long road Home.
Dreaming of summer mornings spent outdoors. I’ll be heading to the Sierras this weekend to do some hiking and camping. It’ll be my first time sleeping all night in a hammock so I’m crossing my fingers I don’t get eaten alive by bugs at night. 🙃 *my beekeeper hat is already packed*
Desert or mountains? Which do you prefer? - Although I’m a die hard tree lover & occasional tree hugger, I have really grown to appreciate the red rock regions of Utah & Colorado. - We took a side trip to Colorado National Monument on our way to Moab. None of us were prepared for the beauty that would unfold as we began our approach to the park. We climbed the monument wide-eyed with wonder, gawking at all the rock formations. - Colorado National Monument, you were a pleasant surprise. - #2018wildwestloop
Swipe Left. 🏔🏔🏔 Here’s my attempt to capture the jaw dropping views from yesterday’s hike. This place offered rugged peaks, alpine lakes, wildflowers, and even a marmot or 2. More pics to come. Good times HV squad 😎 @julian__hernandez @erinchiemi
It doesn’t always take a dusty trail to see something wild. Where’s your favorite boardwalk? Mines on the continental dividend in GNP or the valley floor of Yosemite.
Things on my mind lately... . Give what you want to get. Show up for people how you want them to show up for you. . What I think becomes my reality. If I believe that something is hard then that is what my experience will be. Change my perspective, change my experience. . Nothing can give you what traveling can give you. Even if it’s just for a weekend, get out there and do something new. . Change can be scary but it’s necessary for our growth. Embrace it and it can free you. . I’m lovely our adventure and know it will come to an end but am missing our home and friends back in San Diego. ❤️ . Anything been on your minds lately friends?
Can you help me? This is 3 of 7 Mt Rainier photos from my recent adventure with my son. I will be posting them over the next couple of days and I would love your feedback!!❤️🏔📸 Which ones would you want to hang on your wall? 🖼 Doesn’t it look like they put those flowers there just for this shot? .

The Youth Heritage Project (YHP) spent a few days at the Environmental Learning Center recently as part of our Conferences and Retreats program. YHP is a field school that engages high school age youth and teachers by connecting them to historic, cultural, and natural resources in Washington. While at the learning center they explored the balance between protecting both historic and environmental resources, and the role of our national parks in the field of historic preservation. To find out how your group can gather in the North Cascades at our Learning Center, visit ncascades.org/retreats
