I trekked through snow, over frozen rivers, and around avalanches today. Well played Colorado. #getoutstayout
~ Image was shot after hours with permission ~ I met Jim Bishop today. He is eccentric, and not like anyone I’ve met before. Some people find him offensive, and there are signs throughout his property warning those who won’t be very forgiving to his personality. He also amazing, with incredible vision, tenacity and passion. Jim bought this property for $450 at age 15, with money he earned doing yard work and also offering loans to a local drunk. He intended to build a family cabin. 50 years later, he is still present on the property actively building, placing one Rock after another despite a 2018 fire, the recent loss of his wife due to cancer, and challenges with Parkinsons. To date his castle is, he claims, the largest one-man-made structure in the world. And quite honestly, it’s incredible. It’s quirky and every bit as eccentric as the man who conceived it. Climbing the towers is not for the rambunctious or faint of heart. But if you get a chance, please do visit. Offer a generous donation to support this artist and his life long ambition.
Over the course of a couple of days we hked back down the canyon to the Boundary Creek Trail and followed it to Dunanda Falls, which is only about eight miles from the ranger station at the entrance to the park. Dunanda is a 150 foot high plunge facing generally south, so that in the afternoons reliable rainbows dance over the rocks at its base. It is the archetype of all western waterfalls. Dunenda is an Indian name; in Shoshone it means straight down,which is a pretty good description of the plunge • • • • • #happy #celebrate #birthdaypresent #bayern #wandern #modernhiker #wildernesslifestyle #mountains #nakedplanet #lifeofadventure #findyourpark #peaks #visualsoflife #moss #explore #mytravelgram #closeup #explorecolorado #whitemountains #fishing #mountcook #goplay #neverstop #kitesfestival #communityfirst #bavaria #buffalorivertrail #rivers #travel #mkexplore
Today served as a reminder that I am just one tiny speck in this big, beautiful world 🌎 couldn’t have asked for a better way to end year 25.

Late May snow along the Big Thompson River in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Mule Deer buck. It's been a while since I've posted any deer photos, so I thought It was time to dig one up from the autumn rut. This is the best Muley buck I've ever had the privilege of photographing, and it just so happens that this biggest of bucks was also the most approachable and most cooperative buck. I wonder if anyone happened upon his sheds while walking the trails? . . . . . #muledeer #deerhunting #deerhunt #trophydeer #colorado #coloradowildlife #rockymountains #rockymountainscolorado #deerseason #coloradooutdoors #explorecolorado #trophybuck #coloradohunting #coloradomuledeer #rockymountainarsenal #booner #canon100400ii #suburbanwildlife #coloradoadventures #coloradoadventure #naturelovers #naturalcolorado #biggamehunting #biggame #naturelovers #muleybuck #bowhunting #archerydeer #denveradventures #exploredenver

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. ~ J.R.R. Tolkien . But if you are, start here.

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” — John Muir • Albeit the west wind was a little harsh today on Quandary’s east ridge... 😂 but worth it. 14,265’ felt good. • • • #friends #mountains #mountaingirls #johnmuir #moutainquotes #colorado #co14ers #quandary #quandarypeak #womenwhoclimb #womenwhohike #explorecolorado #snowypeaks #andahesdopetoo #instabuzz #stingorbeestung #getoutside #optoutside #mountaintime #mountainviews #tops #staywild #hikecolorado #breckenridge #rockies #honeystinger #womensupportingwomen #womeninthewild #mountaintop #52hikechallenge

Went for a hike. I wore a 20lbs vest, I mean baby. Franklin was Franklin. It was nice. It was quiet. There were hummingbirds. And so many doggos to pet #boulder #nederland #colorado #bourldercolorado #explorecolorado #coloradolife #rockymountains #coloradoliving #getoutside
This valley was used by the Ute, Cheyenne, & Arapaho Tribes for hunting game. Known as the “Bull Pen” because its surrounded by 3 prominent mountain ranges, it is the highest Refuge in the lower 48. I found it fascinating, hopefully you did too. #colorado #arapahoewildliferefuge #northpark #explorecolorado #history

It's been awhile since I've posted anything! Life has been absolutely crazy over here... But not without its fun! I love this family and had to share this sweet moment. Check out my story in a few minutes to have a laugh at how scary my nephew decided to be when he got upset with me for calling him out! 😂😱😜 #family #familyportrait #candid #laughing #familyportraitphotographer #seattlephotographer #destinations #colorado #explorecolorado #exploretocreate #snohomishcountyphotographer #destinationphotographer #trees #canyonoftheancients #canyon #desert #shootcanon #canon6d #sigma #sigmaart #sneakpeek #sunsets #goldenhour
Took the ladies for their first day trip adventure and hike. Note to self: procure an atv/utv before going back to the Davis Meadow Trail near Buena Vista. An easy hike for the old beags; we found no shortage of mystery poop and mystery tracks on our wooded trek. Nice little scenic drive to kill the day. #explorecolorado #hiking #colorado #outdooradventures #beagles #beaglesofinstagram #mountains
Traveling through space and time watching the clouds take shape beneath me... is there anything better? Forever glued to the window whenever I fly, these views never get old.🦋⛅️🌈
