have you ever had a dream that you um you had your you you could you’ll do you you wants you you could do so you you’ll do you could you you want you want them to do you so much you could do anything?
I love the place names of the American West and Iron Mountain is a great example. The Iron Mountain trail is one of San Diego’s most popular hikes and is easily one of my favorites. The hike was just challenging enough to be a great workout and the exertion was well-rewarded by the views of Ramona and Poway both along the way and the whole San Diego area from the summit. The final photo is the base of a rotating viewfinder pointing out landmarks in all directions. Through the viewfinder at the summit I caught my first glimpse of Mt. Whitney, a bucket list hike for me, and the looking for that snow capped peak the rest of my day filled me with eagerness and purpose. The mark of a good hobby is an activity which gives more than it takes, and hiking may be the pastime that rewards me the most. The amount of creativity I feel, the degree of mental clarity i am granted, and vitalizing energy I experience is unmatched by anything else I do. I never want to leave the summit of any hill or mountain I climb. New sights, incredible colors, birds circling below me, solitude as well as fellowship with other hikers who paid the toll in sweat for an irreproducible view are elements of a feeling I cannot quite conceive in its entirety. 🏞🏔🥾 “They will see us waving from such great heights, ‘come down now’, they’ll say. But everything looks perfect from far away. ‘Come down now’, but we’ll stay.” Such Great Heights, The Postal Service ——————————————— #ironmountain #ironmountaintrail #ironmountaintrailhead #sandiego #hikecalifornia #hikesandiego #suchgreatheights #americanwest

To experience wonder, a new sight, a new scent, a fresh wind sighing across the hills, is a gift. Not too far beyond this spot a golden eagle flew right past us at eye level. #adventure #macera #bacanak #dogsofinstagram #dog #wonder #winter #nevada #highdesert #americanwest #perro #köpek #doğa #snow #nature #naturephotography #landscape #landscapephotography #countrylife #outdoors #hiking #campingwithdogs #beautiful #ilovethis
Also joining us for hide stretching and fleshing, Rebecca and Rachel Wall, roommate Hailey, and Nong Cobb, owner of Bozeman’s, Naked Noodle, Restaurant...who fed us a hearty chili!!!! @nakednoodle www.mtbisonfashionfurs.com
Today we finished stretching 5 hides, and fleshing fat and meat off all 25. The boys from the AGR fraternity on Montana State University campus came to help. Such a great community we have here in Bozeman!!! @alphagammarhohq
Backlight - This is a lighting tutorial, save it! Annie @_annie_15_ rests her arm over her saddle horn as the steam from her horse rises being backlit by the morning sun. . In photography we’re drawn to backlight for certain advantages like that of highlighting the steam here, or perhaps rain/snow in front of someone, or even a silhouette! While I’m in location it’s something I look for all the time. Just look back through my posts, I’m a self described backlight junky! . Technically speaking, it’s light that falls behind our subject(s). We can look for it in many ways, the setting sun, bounced or reflected light, or even artificial light placed behind our subject(s). . 📓ISO200, f4, 1/2500s @ 200mm 📸Canon 5D3 Lens - 70-20mm II f2.8L IS #ranch #ranchlife #ranching #western #americanwest #westernphotography #westernhorseman #workingranchmahazine #workingcows #cdphotog #chrisgood #ijustpushbuttons #utah #photography101 #cowboylife #backlight #utahphotographer #canonusa #aqha #canonbringit #westernlife #outdoors #cowgirl #longlivecowgirls #cowboygirl

I tried to come up with a clever caption for this, but I failed. Instead I’ll tell you how beautiful it was to be there in person. We had photos taken early in the morning and after we decided to stick around and just enjoy the view for ourselves. As we look out a train comes by. This PNW dream light + the train reflecting in the water just got us. It probably means way more to us but we still wanted to share it. Can’t wait to plan a trip back. Also, my sweet friend pointed out that it kinda feels like a scene from Harry Potter, we don’t hate that.
Anyone else gaining a butt load holiday weight right now? Like literally?? The holidays are rough, man. Rough in the, "thank-god-its-sweater-season-cuz-this-muffin-top-invited-itself-in-for-dinner" kind of way. And cake. It's eating lots of cake. -- But nahh I'm totally just fattening myself up for winter to keep warm 😂 once it's warm out I'm going back to my normal ways. Guess it's time to lift heavy and get those boo-D gains while I'm in a surplus? -- Gonna keep wrapping myself in blanket scarves and oversized knits until the ground thaws. Ya girl needs that German gym membership and a gut cleanse lmao -- What's your favorite holiday treat?? 🎂🍰 -- Mine is dark chocolate and pomegranate seeds over vanilla cocunut-milk ice cream. -- -- -- _-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_-"-_ #sedona #adventurebabe #backpackingviews #southwestern #arizona #livelikethewind #hikingculture #girlsandmountains #souladventurer #freespirit #girlsinhats #adventurephotographer #idhikethat #devilsbridgesedona #americanwest #dirtbagdarling #sunrisechaser
I was supposed to go on a long run today but I skipped it. A part of me feels guilty for not running much these past few weeks. Although, it feels good to just chill. I figure I'll run when I want to run. So I'm listening to my body by enjoying this weekend at home, under the warm winter sun of Sin City, and (as always) finding humor in Abbey's brutal honesty. I love him. 💚 . . . #selfcare #relax #humor #home #desertlife #nevada #read #homemeansnevada #chill #weekend #desertsun #norunday #trailrunner #break #relaxing #americanwest #journeyhome #reading #book #coffeeandbooks #solitude #homesweethome
It's Sunday, so how about some Cowboys and Monks! Interesting crew, both monks are military veterans and the cowboy's family can be traced directly back to the Spanish Conquistadors. We ate shrimp from the back of a pickup truck and surveyed what is now the current home of Father Joshua's Skete. How I love the open spaces and wild individuals of the American West. #cowboys #monks #albuquerque #americanwest #livedeeply #orthodox #conquistadors
Keeping 6 at the lookout 🦌 One of the things I like the most about the Southern Saskatchewan plains are the rolling dips and hills that conceal so much wildlife. You never know what you’re gonna see until you look over each hilltop.

#westagain #americanwest #navajonation . On my way to present my project at a meeting today in AZ. Honoured to be amongst the tumbleweeds sagebrush and red rock again.
This place leaves you speechless..it’s crowded and it’s almost impossible to get clear shots, but in the end it‘s definitely worth visiting. #americanwest #arizona 🌵 #navajonation #travelholic @matadornetwork #roadtrippin
Contributor takeover with @gretarybus : "Idaho's Stanley Basin, like much of the American West, has geothermal activity and is dotted with natural hot springs and soaking spots. Protected by locals, and often shared only by word-of-mouth, the hot water is cooled by river water." - - - - - - - - - #anotherescape #inspiredbynature #outdoorlifestyle #creativeculture #sustainableliving #indiemagazine #indiemag #indiemags #independentmagazine #consciousconsumer #madetokeep #arctic #frozen #greenland #cold #inuit #inspiremyinstagram #roamtheplanet #exploremore #idaho #americanwest #thermal #hotsprings

Sunsets are cool and all, but this time I was more excited about the person skydiving next to the gas giant at sunset. Unfortunately, I took the shot too late and the skydiver ended up blending with the dark mountains, and became difficult to see. If you zoom in, you might catch the skydiver 🙂. #arizonacollective #southwest #arizonahiking #americanwest #arizonaphotography #westernstates #utahphotographer #sol #vacation #nationalpark #skydiving #travel #travelphotography #trail #nature #picoftheday #instagram #instagood #hiking #sunset #landscapephotography #natureperfection #neverstopexploring #sunsets #pictureline #winter #nikon #tbt #pictureoftheday
Had a crazy Sunday adventure with a few friends, and we had a great time. We hiked for a few hours, jumped on many rocks, I fell on my butt, and eventually we rested on this spot in order see the sunset. We also jammed with a ukulele, and a mighty GarageBand guitar app! All in all it was great day😁. #arizonacollective #arizonahiking #southwest #americanwest #westernstates #utahnationalparks #utahphotographer #vacation #nationalpark #moabutah #travel #travelphotography #trail #nature #picoftheday #instagram #instagood #hiking #sunset #landscapephotography #natureperfection #neverstopexploring #sunsets #pictureline #winter #nikon
Those silly sunsets 🧐. One moment you find yourself fighting against the sun cause is too bright to see the road , next thing you know, you pulled the car over, and spend the next 30 minutes appreciating those simple moments. #utahunique #southwest #americanwest #westernstates #utahnationalparks #utahphotographer #vacation #nationalpark #moabutah #travel #travelphotography #trail #nature #picoftheday #instagram #instagood #hiking #sunset #landscapephotography #natureperfection #neverstopexploring #sunsets #pictureline #winter #nikon #eupolia #viewbug #tbt #pictureoftheday #snow
