Looking down on nature's little big wonder #arizona #arizonarocks #roadtrip #americathebeautiful #wonderofnature
“When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.” - Wendell Berry Feeling free and light and full of beauty after a day hike in @mountrainiernps . Our view of Mount Rainer was impeded by the smoke from forest fires around Washington, Oregon and BC, but if you squint you can see her! Not sure I’ll ever get over the fact that this is a mere 60ish miles from where I live now— and definitely not sure how I lived the first 20 or so years of my life without climbing up into the mountains every weekend. 10/10 would recommend, y’all. 💗 hope you had a beautiful Sunday and enjoyed some nature, big or small! #findyourpark #mountrainiernationalpark #maggieonamountain #maggieinseattle

Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures. . Oh to be 5 years old! Morocco is my child of endless questions, boundless energy, sharp mind. His wheels are always turning. He pays close attention to everything. I love these two still moments of him taking it all in. • Thank You God for this opportunity to hit the road, see the country and make memories. 🙏🏽 #crosscountryroadtrip . #grandcanyon #southrim #hermitsrest #kidexplorer #adventuringwithkids #thegreatoutdoors #arizona #somuchtosee #canyon #usa #americathebeautiful #familyroadtrip #kidstravel #travelkids #familytravel #travelmom #crosscountrytrip #discoverusa #travelusa #roadtrip #crosscountry #arizona #outwest #3kids #kidstravel #familyfun #adventurekids #visittheusa #3kidsonaroll

God bless America this is the greatest country on earth. We are a nation of many different cultures, we are a nation of people from all around the world. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world, I thank God I was born in America. #americathebeautiful #americaisthegreatestcountryintheworld #onenationundergod #indivisiblewithlibertyandjusticeforall #godblessamerica #wouldntwanttoliveanywhereelse
It’s a great Sunday evening for a walk-through of Gcd’s Country, Wisconsin. This farmer has started to cut his corn already and soon there will be frost on the pumpkin. What a beautiful summer we’ve had. #sundaywalk #wisconsinsummer #SummerInWisconsin #ThankGodI ’mACountryBoy #Fitness #Exercise #closingmyrings #iwatch #Oncall #Countryroads #Cheesehead #FarmBoy #DairyState #AmericaTheBeautiful #Summer2018

Zion Canyon seen from Angel's Landing. Probably the most intense hike I've ever attempted. It takes concentration, balance, sure foot, and a death grip on the support chains to navigate the trail from Scout's Lookout to Angel's Landing. The scary, yet exhilarating hike over a narrow mountain spine leads to this stunning vista. #angelslanding #zionnationalpark #zioncanyon #mukuntuweap #westrimtrail #virginriver #utah #navajosandstone #geologicalwonders #angelscanflywehavetohike #hikingadventures #nationalparkservice #nps #usparksandmonuments #americathebeautiful
Climbing the last few steps to the iconic Big Pines Lakes Lake two view. The hike kicked my butt, but wow - it was SO worth the view!! I’m so proud of myself for being able to complete it!!

#50before30 : Jumping for joy because after countless miles traveled through this incredible country of ours, I have officially been to all 50 states and what a journey it has been! Now, onto the next adventure! 🗺 #missouri #wanderlust #gatewayarch #americathebeautiful #stlouis #STL #gatewaytothewest #gatewayarchnationalpark

Had so much fun hiking Chimney Rock with this awesome group of people! @santafeopera @ghostranchorg #newmexico #americathebeautiful
Watched the sunrise this morning from the spot I camped. Finally got myself a hiking hat like all the cool kids and grabbed an annual pass for the national parks. All in all a great weekend! #sedona #americathebeautiful #sunrise #weekendoutdoors . Bonus waterfall shot playing with long exposures 😉
Took a close call to realize that in Alaska a lot of rail road crossings don't have safety features like lights or that arm thing.

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost. Just call me Aragorn. King Aragorn. Btw I know I said this 17 years ago (wtf I feel so old now...) But King A is for sure the most attractive Lord of the Rings character. Location: Coconino National Forest, Flagstaff, Arizona. View: Mount Doom aka Humphrey's Peak. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #arizona #arizonatour #travel #travelphotography #hiking #outdoors #liveoutside #walk #summer #vacation #destinationcity #explore #exploretheusa #americathebeautiful #summertour #optoutside #hikingadventures #flagstaffaz #traveldiary #summeroutside #mountaintime #mountainclimb #mountains #coconinonationalforest #carcamping #kachinatrail #humphreyspeak #lordoftherings #returnoftheking #nerdalert
A year after finishing “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”, I finally got to tour the Mercer House. They even showed off all the antiques the way Jim would (some stuff 600 years old). I totally nerded out. If you haven’t read the book, do it (history of Savannah, plus a true murder story). It is the book that put Savannah on the map. Then, go to Savannah and soak in all the goodness. Thank me later. 𖧶 𖧶 𖧶 #seekingbadassery #womenwhoexplore #midnightinthegardenofgoodandevil #mercerhouse #jimwilliams #exploreyourcity #savannahgeorgia #savannahga #visitsavannah #gotosavannah #travelandleisure #visittheusa #americathebeautiful #booknerd #thediscoverer #girlsthatwander #sheisnotlost #passionpassport #femmetravel #southernliving

We started off the weekend at the arts festival in Breck. This is the fourth year we’ve went and they always come up with such cool exhibits! A short hike to get to this “gentle giant” by Danish artist Thomas Dambo. #dutchiesontheloose #gobreck #breckenridge #gobreck #artsfestival #mountaintown #weekending #thomasdambo #coloradolife #mountainliving
Have you ever done something, as an adult, that makes you squeal like a kid? Like real-sound squeals? Folks, I am a #rollercoaster junkie. I've been to many parks and I have many favorites, but PEOPLE! Cedar Point?? The rumors are true! And it's located on a peninsula overlooking Lake Erie in b-e-a-utiful Sandusky, OH. Absolute heaven. If you're at all a junkie, do yourself a favor and spend a few days here. If you've got the time, make a side trip to it's sister park Kings Island. Quality coasters to be had there as well. I honestly cannot wait to return to these parks. The coaster in the background of this picture is the Gatekeeper. Oh, my god. It threads needles. . . . #cedarpoint #adrenalinejunkie #americathebeautiful #neverstopexploring #digitalnomad #exploreourearth #exploreamerica #homeiswhereyouparkit #rvlife #doingplanetearth #ohio #nofilter #ferriswheel #sandusky
Got my first taste of the Sierra Nevada mountains at my stop in @kingscanyonnationalpark. Not pictured here: the two bears that forced us to cut our hike short and immediately made Irina question her decision to join me. And yes, the sky really is that blue. #zumwaltmeadow #americathebeautiful #findyourpark #optoutside #summer2018 #roadtrip . . . . Zumwalt Meadow Kings Canyon National Park, August 2, 2018
Welcome to UTAH! 🇺🇸🌄
Day 2&3 of our Upper Peninsula adventure: Spray Falls, where Pictured Rocks begins, was the turn around point of our hike from the previous day. Got a couple shots of us at the top of the falls during our hike. #adventureswithmywife #adventure #hiking #picturedrocks #sprayfalls #waterfall #lakesuperior #greatlakes #americathebeautiful #merica #veteran #greatday #upperpeninsula #michigan
Col-o-ra-do! Everywhere you look mountains and awesome landscapes. It’s amazing to be in a state geared toward enjoying nature. Not to mention the dispensaries, also geared toward enjoying nature 🙃

Roads and landscapes. A few mornings back I clambered up a pile of rocks and watched the sun set fire to the otherworldly landscape of Joshua Tree NP. Long shadows, a smokey horizon, stillness and a road full of possibilities. There’s bound to be a few more shots like this as we travel these epic American highways over the next month or so. . . . . . . #nikon #mynikonlife #usgeo #visualsofearth #earthpix #monsterchildren #sunrise #ontheroad #desert #sampetersphoto #mchfeature #joshuatreenationalpark #landscape #ig_masterpiece #americathebeautiful #roadtrip

The #chapelrock is one of the many freak sandstone landscapes that has been carved out by #lakesuperior over the past millions of years but what really got me was the tree on top of it! A showcase of #survivalofthefittest . As it couldn't find enough nourishment on the isolated rock as it grew, it didn't give up or stayed small, instead it extended it roots across the air, like a bridge, to the nearest land with enough soil to grow bigger and stronger! An unbelievable sight with a deep life lesson and a science lesson all at once!
