Just in between blue hour and golden hour. I was feeling really sick and I was extremely tired that I took every chance we stopped to close my eyes. It wasn't until both Heather and Jason told me to look over to the side that I got a sudden burst of energy upon looking out at this view. I still took an extremely long nap on the sand as soon as the Sun was fully out 😴😂😌
Looking forward to planning our next #BlueRidge adventure 🌄
The gentle current dances around my body cleansing my soul. The cold water compresses my chest like a heavy burden. The breath gets a little shallower. The time stands still in the dance. And when the music is over I am whole again. #outsidemagazine #backpackermag #natgeoyourshot #eddiebauer #travel #travelphotographer #yosemitenationalpark #protect yourpark #atlasambassador #getoutside #explore #canon5dmarkiii #canonusa #canonphotography #swim #nude #skinnydip #water #river @patriciacnguyen @yosemitenps
“Simpler Times” — I made my way to Wyoming to view the Perseid meteor showers due to the thick smoke from wild fires choking out the stars in Utah. . I had one fantastic clear night, and then the smoke rolled in by morning. . The haze was mostly nasty, but I wondered if it might lend itself to a rather dreamy and subdued shot of these barns. . I rather like the way it turned out. Let me know what you think in the comments. . Photo Tip: Use environmental phenomenon, good or bad, to give you a different look or unusual opportunity. . Gear: Nikon D810, Nikkor glass, Really Right Stuff ballhead and legs, Lee Filters, Gen 5 Toyota 4Runner, Black Labrador Retriever (won’t leave home without her😉) . . . #wyominglife #visitwyoming #wyoming #usinterior #nationalparkservice #nationalparks #grandtetons #grandtetonnationalpark #landscape_hunter #reallyrightstuff #nikonusa #nikon100 #backpackermag #mtnfolk #roadtrips #southbysouthwest #seeamerica #toyotausa #malonetoyota #openroad #nomadlife #landscapephotomag

Got to take my sister on a hike in Mt. Rainier described by @backpackermag as part of the 100 best miles in all of the National park system. #panhandlegap #mtrainier #backpackermag #findyourpark
Every 15 minutes an #elephant dies because of #poaching . And as things in Kenya always goes a court in the city of Mombasa set free a man, Mohamed Feisal, who was convicted by a lower court in July 2016 of smuggling ivory and jailed for 20 years. Feisal, arrested in Tanzania in December 2014 after a consignment of #ivory was seized at his warehouses in Mombasa, appealed the sentence. Prosecutors said at the time the 314 pieces of ivory weighing over two tonnes had an estimated value of 44 million shillings ($438,902.74) The Office of the Director of Public Prosecution is set to appeal the ruling this week. See how it goes. I would not bet my money on this mans jailing after he walks away with his millions. This shot was taken in #amboseli National Park which is famous for being the best place in the world to get close to free-ranging elephants. . . . . . #stayandwander #sunset #natgeowild #kenya #backpackermag #goneoutdoors #WildlifeiG #bluehour #wanderlust #roam247 #wildernessculture #wakeupearly #discoverearth #lensculture #bestvintagelens #sonya7iii #natgeotraveller #natgeo #natgeoadventure #outdoorlifestyle #goexplorewander #goexploring #passportready #instatraveller #wildlifeplanet #natures_hub

Sunset surf in Santa Terrsa, Costa Rica. . . Looking forward to the next trip when I can sit on the beach and take pictures like this. Don’t know where it will be but somewhere is for sure. . @beautifuldestinations @travelawesome @backpackermag @surf @sunset @visit_costarica @travelandlife @reisemagasinetvagabond @travelbloggeres @reseguiden
Not a bad idea to revisit sometime.. not a bad idea at all. #newzealand
| Glacier Traverse | There are 3 types of traveling I love: mountain expeditions, ice travel, and backpacking circuits that involve the previous 2. Featured here is Stone; leading us through the crevasses and ice canyons. . . . . #arcteryxlabrea #iceland #glacier #protectourwinters #polar #travelphotography #optoutside #celebratewild #exploreandcapture #mountaineering #backpackermag #backpacking #hikingculture #livetravelchannel #bbctravel #travelchannel #lonelyplaney #natgeoadventure #adventure #nordic #alpine #stayandwander #camp4pix #discoverearth #neverstopexploring #modernoutdoors
Such an amazing hike into fern canyon few days ago! They apparently filmed jurassic park in the canyon along the streams! Truly a prehistoric feeling place! And we saw this big guy on our way out! #jurassicpark #ferncanyon #falls #elk #fern #redwoods #canyon #hikerlife #hikrlife #backpackermag #trailchat #adventureenthusiasts #wanderlust #wanderlusting
Sleeping among the giants last night:) I've been distant from social media the second leg of the trip as I tend to leave my phone on airplane mode most of the time! We have been dodging forest fires when we first arrived in Cali but we made it to San Fran! @enohammocks #trailchat #hikrlife #backpackermag #adventureenthusiasts #outdoors #enohammocks #eno #redwoods #humboldt #avenueofthegiants #westcoast
Climbing to Donahue Pass at 11,066 ft on the John Muir Trail. Day four of our 60 mile journey. Donahue Pass is the Gateway to Yosemite’s backcountry and Tuolumne Meadows.

Dive in 🌄
Slow travel. Some hostels felt like home-stays after a while. The owner might give you the quieter room or the brother starts to brew cardamom coffee for you in the mornings. The grandmas leave extra blankets on your bed and you’re invited to stay up late and sip tea with the oldest man and youngest son while they bicker over ancient and recent history. Children want to show you all the shortcuts and backstreets before the mothers take over to explain local protocols and offer words to use at the markets. In time you get called on to help with loads of washing or dinner preparations in exchange for free board. There is joy in the connections and comfort in the care, but I travel for the chance to catch the hidden rhythm of the country or culture; for the glimpses of quotidian scenes hidden between the ‘must-see’ sites.. #mundane #magic
It's not common to see three glaciers at once around here. This might be one of my favourite views in the park. Did this climb for the first time 3 years ago and felt like it was time to go back. - - - - - #montanamoment #flatheadphotography #visitmontana #montana #getoutside #bigskycountry #lastbestplace #goatworthy #mtadventure #optoutside #rei1440project #wildernessnation #exploremore #backpackermag #fujix #fujifilm #clymblife #glacierguidesmtraft #humanpowered #glaciernps #gnp #glacier #glaciernationalpark #_gnp #hiking

While at the Grand Canyon back in April of this year I was amazed of all the fantastic views and photo opportunities you have. This photo was taken along the South Rim. Captured with the Sony A8III using the Sony FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS lens. Have a great evening.

Exited to get back out there. This week I'm heading to Alaska to film an episode of @epictrailstv with @vasquefootwear @marmot @exofficio and @fitbit. This starts a pretty jam packed stretch of filming and exploring over the next few months. Let's go have some fun!
Remembering a sunny Friday on a rainy Monday. This one was taken at the summit of Mount Crawford.

One of my favourite animals #giraffe camelopardalis, which means “the fast-walking camel-leopard". The tallest living animals in the world. Fewer than 100,000 giraffes remain in the wild, down from an estimated 150,000 that roamed the #savannas 30 years ago. Giraffe populations are challenged because of #poaching and shrinking habitat. The animals' tails are made into good-luck bracelets, fly whisks and thread for stringing beads, according to the African Wildlife Foundation. As agricultural settlement expands, the giraffe's main source of food, the acacia tree, is being cut down.
Watch out for those storms y’all! Thankfully made it down from the summit long before these clouds arrived! ⚡️🌩🌨

I’m not what you’d call the “dieting type”, but one that really worked for me was the Icelandic diet of hardfiskur (dried cod) and Brennivín schnapps. I feel lighter already. #dietstartsmonday #inspiredbyiceland #dietplan
I can’t thank these ladies enough for a perfect birthday weekend/trip.
We desire the unseen, crave the unexplainable, and long for the intangible. There’s a part of my heart that is always longing for adventure - to see and experience new things or to see and experience the same things, just in a fresh way. I think that part of the reason for this is because we, as humans, are created for more. We weren’t designed to settle. And as I lay here and watch the meteors shoot above my head, I’m reminded that this craving for more isn’t ever meant to be satisfied. It’s a funny thing to be filled, yet still hungry. But that’s the way I want to live - always seeking and pressing into the next thing while taking in every moment in the here and now. . . . . #inspiration #hunger #more #cadescove #tennessee #perseidmeteorshower #meteorshowerthoughts #smokymountains #sunrise #gopro #roadtrip #getout #getfit #womenwhohike #campingculture #adventureoutdoors #picoftheday #rei1440project #wildernessculture #liveyouradventure #optoutside #campingcollective #backpackermag #discovertheroad #sharetodaysadventure #hike365 #gooutsideandplay #playon #shewhotravels #travelwithme

Oh how I love summer 💙 glacier doesn't have massive glaciers anymore, but that doesn't mean you can't find fun snow and ice to climb. Today I went up Gem glacier and it was epic. - - - - - #montanamoment #flatheadphotography #visitmontana #montana #getoutside #bigskycountry #lastbestplace #goatworthy #mtadventure #optoutside #rei1440project #wildernessnation #exploremore #backpackermag #fujix #fujifilm #clymblife #glacierguidesmtraft #humanpowered #glaciernps #gnp #glacier #glaciernationalpark #_gnp #hiking
"You want to talk about some worse or uncomfortable trail moments...I had a Cactus thorn in my leg for 170 miles while hiking...yeah...not the funnest thing to write home about." - Giving Tree ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • While passing Mill Creek Fire Station we ran into Giving Tree from Ashland, Oregon. • • • We were chatting about the desert and another hiker had brought up their aches and pains and wondered if they could get through it • • • He wasn't boasting, but Giving Tree mentioned you could push through almost anything, it was up to you though. He mentioned how the Cactus thorn had gotten embedded and how it sucked but he got through it before getting help to remove it. • • • As far as all the folks we met this year on the PCT, Giving Tree was one of those hikers who had such positive energy and seemed to really be enjoying himself out there • • • Here's to him having a safe and fun rest of the hike • • • Be sure to follow his hike and adventure @thedirtlessdirtbag • • • #HappyTrails • • •  #keepitwild #keepitpublic #ProtectPublicLands #leavenotrace #photography #hyperlite #altrarunning #zpacks #oregon #smile #hikingram   #beards #hike #hiking #backpacking #backpackers #trekking #backpackermag #inspire #hikeon #dirtbag #wanderer #mexicotocanada #cdt2018 #AT2018 #trailcrew #vagabond #nomad
PNW? Nope. Oaxaca, Mexico, with rain, mountains, pines, and all.
Missing Washington as I walk to a very hot and smokey Southern Oregon. #PacificCrestTrail

Will wake up at 4am for this✨💗
Dark skies at camp in the Sawatch Mountains a few evenings ago.
8 years ago I made my way to the top of my first 14er - a mountain that sits over 14,000 feet in elevation. Yesterday I summitted my 29th + 30th, Mt. Harvard followed by Mt. Columbia (HOLYYYYY TRAVERSE) 🏔 Something I love about sitting up on top of the world is how humbling it is. Nothing else in life matters. I feel so small. I feel so at peace. The mountains have this way of wrapping themselves around me & it’s just the most amazing thing 🙏🏼 I’ve been putting this traverse off for awhile because it’s long, it’s hard, and quite frankly I thought it was gonna be miserable & painful (which let’s be real it was) BUT I was surrounded by the best peeps. The sun was shining allllll day. And the fact that it was hard AF only added to the sweetness of CRUSHING it! 🤙🏼✊🏼 Here’s to always getting out of your comfort zone, surrounding yourself with amazing people at all times, finding the gratitude in every moment, and busting your ass for the things you want in life. Because no one else is gonna do it for you ✨💃🏼 #AdventuresWithAub
Quite possibly my favorite highland meadow in the Cascades even though I got at least 40 mosquito bites in under an hour!
I'm having fun with these edits. How about you?? This one is us catching the last weekend of blue skies for the summer. We hiked to ranger peak. Shout out to @tbm324 for his first peak ever, and first with us. Catch me doing something crazy later!!
I figured a good way to shake out my legs after that 17 hour solo road trip earlier this week was 19 miles knocking out the Harvard/Columbia traverse 😅😍 Such an amazing day with amazing humans in an amazing state with amazing weather and amazing new strangers turned friends and AH EVERYTHING IS AMAZING 🙏🏼✨💫🏔 that’s a wrap on all of the Collegiate Peaks! #amazing #altitoots #co14ers
