The Hoover Dam, quite the architectural achievement. For the curious minds: It was built during the depression on the Arizona-Nevada border to tame the Colorado River and provide water and hydroelectric power for the quickly developing Southwest. Not so fun fact: Over 100 people died during its construction, needless to say, working conditions were very dangerous. Of the 100, only 96 were considered official “industry fatalities” allowing their families to receive compensation. Worth the 40 minute drive if you find yourself in Vegas with some time to kill. #hooverdam #architecture #arizona #nevada #bouldercitynv #coloradoriver #southwest #lakemead #intaketowers #historylover #historyporn #ocallahantillmanmemorialbridge #uspixels #ipulledoverforthis #theamericancollective #thegreatdepression #canon70d #ig_northamerica

Nothing like a nice deluge of winter rain to clear the city streets. This is Boston’s Blackstone Block, a remnant of Boston from the 1700s. Back then, it was a waterfront neighborhood. The block hides the Boston Stone, the site some sources claim as the geographic center of Boston. (This would likely be the Old State House). However, if you wind your way through this small streets, you will find an 18th century mill / business building of some sorts. . . . . . #igersboston25 #igersboston #followingboston #visitboston #igersmass #city_explore #seemycity #kings_villages #globalnook #loves_united_life #theamericancollective #passionpassport #living_destinations #bostonsworld #pixeltheplanet #hello_worldpics #darlingplaces #travelanddestinations #thedreamlocation #mytinyatlas #postitfortheaesthetic #walkwithlocals #trottermag #pathport #ilove_simplebeyond #thatsdarling #igboston #atlasobscura #loves_united_america

Welcome to the hood, @bluestonelanecoffee ! I don’t personally live in the West End, but my mama @babiedc does (which means I practically do too 😂), and I’ve been loving all the new additions to the neighborhood as of late (our fave hangout spot is the cafe/bar @squashonfire ). Love the design of this spot, which is located in the newly renovated West End library. (Pricey) Aussie ☕️ & oat milk options! Woo!
Friendship...the priceless treasure.
The Meaning of Place. Several years ago, a #friend told me about what she does whenever she feels the impulse, however slight, to #travel . It is really the simplest thing in the world, and, like most simple things, remarkably meaningful. You hear that unmistakeable call to make a journey, but you were not given a destination. What next? There are a number of small things that can help you decide where to go. Some journeys are handed to us fully formed and thoroughly charted. Throughout #life , destinations of these journeys are already chosen by fate. We know exactly where the trip will take us, but we wonder what will happen along the way, and how we might be transformed by the experience. All travel is inner travel. Though we did not consciously single out a location, our #trip is still very much a #journey of self-discovery and personal transformation. Only now we need to discover for ourselves why we might have been called to this particular #place over any other. All #places have meanings for us. This is true whether or not we have been there. A place that is unknown to us still may have associations, simply because its meaning is universal. The picture of the #abandoned #oldhouse represents an activity reminiscent of #childhood #games . Perhaps that is why I like them so much. This phase of travel really is - or should be - childlike. With a strong urge to return to many other abandoned properties, the #rurex and #urbex #traveler are like children reinventing their own #play . Exploring the meaning of the place is the key to understanding the journey. What if this were happening in a #dream ? How would #you interpret it? @natgeocreative @natgeofineart Follow to see more of my #NatGeo photographs taken along selected #natgeocreative travels - past, present, and future. #the_mirror_of_our_souls #trb_rural #backroads #canon_photos #bnw #explorecanada #explorealberta #rurbex_revolution #creepy #childhoodmemories #memories

The Olympic National Park has many wonderful places to visit. The beaches on the northwestern corner are some of the best. If you visit in the winter you'll find quiet beaches and will sometimes be treated to amazing sunsets. Photo by Kevin Russell @krbackwoodsphotography
I took some videos of the ducks sliding around on the ice last week and edited some cute clips together. Just a short version of the entire video I made. 🦆
The river ice always looks like an alien landscape, and then the fog rolled over us and turned our Tuesday into something magical.

Clinging to Christmas
I think the umbrellas outnumber the people today ☂
By the end of our day - this one was so covered in mud that he had to ride home in his underwear. A good day!
I can hear the music playing just by looking at this photo.
Me encanta buscar y encontrar estos murales mientras voy de ruta. Son muchísimos los pequeños pueblos que decoran sus calles con estas obras de arte que al tiempo que hacen funciones decorativas, también cuentan una historia.

It’s #TuesdaysOnTheRun at @mcmmama ! And the prompt today is favorite running shoes and is there such thing as “too many”?

The Catch. • One shot I’ve always wanted is an eagle swooping down on a fish. Though I never envisioned the tail end here I couldn’t be happier with it and will be back to watch the eagles some more soon! I saw thirty plus more out on the lake before losing count. Swipe right for the other two images of the series where you can see the eagle spot, then turn for the fish. • • • • nebraSKA #visitnebraska #nebraskagram #rsa_rural #rural_love #renegade_rural #ig_countryside #birdphotography #birding #earthfocus #eagles #wildlifephotography #thegreatoutdoors #naturephotography #earthpix #nature #nebraskalife #birdstagram #withmytamron #thegoodlife #birdsofprey #baldeagle #nature_perfection #nature_shooters #nature_brilliance #theamericancollective #igersusa #naturetherapy #birdwatching #Birdlovers
