I can’t wait to get back to that fresh mountain air!!😷
Our three little Tetons. πŸ”πŸ”πŸ”Day two we hiked to Taggart Lake. Taggart was on our list, then scratched off, then the ranger said it’s a must and we put it back on the list, then we sort of took it back off.... well are we so so glad we put Taggart back on the list. The Tetons reflect perfectly in the beautiful clear lake. It is jaw dropping and a must for anyone coming here. It’s about a three mile hike (elevation gains) round trip. It’s a busy trail but with spectacular views of the Grand Tetons. After finally saying good by to Taggart we had lunch at Schwabacher’s Landing to view the range from the other side of Snake River. We checked out the Moulton Barns then headed back to String lake to stare at the view and kayak. It was a beautiful clear day and we could not stop talking about how much we love these mountains. Tetons, you have stolen our β™₯️.
The area which now comprises Sequoia National Park was first home to "Monachee" (Western Mono) Native Americans, who resided mainly in the Kaweah River drainage in the Foothills region of the park, though evidence of seasonal habitation exists as high as the Giant Forest. In the summertime, Native Americans would travel over the high mountain passes to trade with tribes to the East. To this day, pictographs can be found at several sites within the park, notably at Hospital Rock and Potwisha, as well as bedrock mortars used to process acorns, a staple food for the Monachee people.β € β € β € Tharp's Log, a cabin formed out of a hollowed-out Giant Sequoia logβ € By the time the first European settlers arrived in the area, smallpox had already spread to the region, decimating Native American populations. The first European settler to homestead in the area was Hale Tharp, who famously built a home out of a hollowed-out fallen giant sequoia log in the Giant Forest next to Log Meadow. Tharp allowed his cattle to graze the meadow, but at the same time had a respect for the grandeur of the forest and led early battles against logging in the area. From time to time, Tharp received visits from John Muir, who would stay at Tharp's log cabin. Tharp's Log can still be visited today in its original location in the Giant Forest.

Swiftcurrent Pass Trail is one of the park's steepest and highest trails. Almost 3,000 feet in elevation gain in about 3 miles. It's worth it at the top though, you can see Canada to the north which includes Drake trippin about this Kawhi trade.
While I look happy to be getting back on the trolley, I wasn’t. It was insanely hot and humid that day, and the trolly did not have AC! . We were roasting and absolutely soaked. . Even worse, part of the site was closed because it was too hot to be inside the non-air conditioned building. But, we did get to see most of the site and I am sure I will be back! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € =============================== #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #nps #goparks #fypyes Β  #nationalparklife #adventure #exploremore #womenwhoexplore #sheisnotlost #lifeofadventure #wanderlust #travelgram #boston #quincy #johnadams #trolley #fourthofjuly #americanhistory #usa #usatravel #travelmemories #travelmore #stitchfix #femmetravel #girlswhotravel #womenwhotravel

For me, as a painter and photographer, a trip down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon is the gift that keeps on giving. The itinerary of such a trip precludes the when, where, and what of images available for photography, but it never stops offering delights of chroma, hue, light, shadow, and texture. These were all taken within a half mile of mile 116 on a bright, sunny morning. #chasinglightandspace #ipulledoverforthis #westbysouthwest #divine_deserts #puresw #igsouthwest #raftingtrip #rivertrip #coloradoriver #grandcanyonnationalpark #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnps #grandcanyonnp #fypyes #ig_arizona #visitarizona #instagramaz #arizonahighways #arizonahikersguide #just_unitedstates #srs_landscape #usinterior #colors_of_day #ic_landscape #mountaintime #geology #arizonacollective #chroma #explorearizona #lightshadow @grand_canyon_association @grandcanyontrust @national_park_photography @national_monument_photos
Our first full day at @grandtetonnps clocked almost ten miles. We started the day at Jenny, String, and Leigh lakes. All gorgeous with beautiful views. We beat the crowds by getting there before ten. String was our favorite with calm shallow green/blue water. We took the string lake overlook trail to get views from above. It was a a really nice hike with beautiful views, and we picked and tried fresh huckleberries. When we finished the hike we had lunch and a wicked hail storm rolled in. So we headed back south to the Laurence Rockefeller Preserve to take the Lake Creek Trail to Phelps Lake. First of all the preserve is gorgeous and modern. The visitor center itself is something to see and the kids loved it. Activities and a cozy library area. The hike was beautiful up to the lake and followed along the water with waterfalls and wildflowers. Phelps lake is a perfect alpine blue lake with views all around. The kids and adults splashed around and watch a bald eagle fly by. We even were lucky enough to see a moose on the drove back to camp!
On this day in 1947, Boulder Dam Recreation Area was renamed Lake Mead National Recreation Area after former chairman of the Bureau of Reclamation, Dr. Elwood Mead. The area that would become Lake Mohave, following the construction of the Davis Dam, was added to the recreation area. In 1964, Congress passed a law creating the this as the first National Recreation Area under the sole jurisdiction of NPS.β € πŸ“:β €Lake Mead National Recreation Area, NV-AZ πŸ“… :β €May 2018 β € #nationalparkgeek #IBrakeForBrownSigns

A year ago we went on our first backpacking trip. Ever. Next week we’re backpacking to Sahale Glacier in North Cascades N.P., and in August we’ll be on the historic Chilkoot Trail in Alaska for 5 days. Back when we visited all the national parks, we only stayed in hotels and lodges and we pretty much lived on pizza, beer and animal crackers for two years. Not exactly what you’d call a wilderness experience. We never imagined a future where we’d be backpacking and camping- but here we are. It’s been challenging, exhausting, exhilarating and rewarding as hell. And the animal crackers are still coming along for the ride. πŸͺ . . #adventureawaits #goparks #findyourpark #shishibeach #olympicnationalpark #onp #nationalpark #usinterior #optoutside #fypyes #nps #nationalparkgeek #todsl #adventureisoutthere #hikingculture #hikepnw #pnwonderland #pnwisbest #thenwadventure #explorewashington #pnwdiscovered #ourpnw #usparksandmonuments #adventureculture #pnwcollective #staypnw #washingtonstate #ospreypacks

Cue Johnny! β€œWe’re going to Jackson...” We got to Jackson Wy and so did Sarah! First of all the drive from Yellowstone to Tetons?! 😍😍😍 we stopped at the snake river overlook to get the iconic picture Ansel Adams took. On the way we stopped at the Colter Bay visitor center to get information and jr ranger books. The ranger approved of our hiking choices, so we were excited. We set up camp, got groceries, then checked out the awesome town of Jackson. Then had to stay for pizza and beer 🍻

Although many people leave Yosemite without seeing any large mammals, wildlife is everywhere if you know how, when, and where to look. We saw deer everyday, easily more than two dozen in all.

Day five at Yellowstone we slept in and had a big pancake breakfast. We were so glad we got geyser crazy and did the old Faithful area in one day. This gave us this day (our last in Yellowstone) to sleep in and do what we all love to do: find a quiet hiking trail to a lake or pond and sit and enjoy the views. We stopped at the volcano mud area to see the mud volcano and dragon’s mouth. Bison were all around right next to the boardwalks along the walk. This was worth the stop being in the area. The dragons mouth is so wild to see and hear. You can tell where the name comes from. From there we were done with crowds and sight seeing. We were ready to just enjoy the park in it’s natural state. We got the kayaks approved by the rangers and our small watercraft license. Thanks to the ranger he led us to Gull Point Drive and another perfect spot off the beaten path. We sat and enjoyed the beautiful views of the mountains and kayaked the shoreline of lake Yellowstone. There was even a little area for the kids to kayak on their own in calm water that was encircled by land. The β€œbeach”’is made of tiny pebbles and rock made from lava. The colors are black browns and even glass looking. Sometimes it is sharp on your feet so make sure you wear water shoes. Also, the mosquitos are there so bring bug spray and set up your spot away from the trees and grass.
Day four at Yellowstone we decided to take on Old Faithful and everything surrounding. We prepared ourselves and kept joking that it was like going to Disney. So many things to do and so many people. We were an hour away from the area and decided to start at the Grand Prismatic and midway geyser Basin. One the way there we saw a beautiful young male elk right on the side of the road. We safely viewed the elk unlike other people trying to get close. We can not believe how close some people get to these wild animals! The line was so long to get into the small parking lot (for such a popular spot) so we decided to head to the lower basin area. The fountain paint pots were so fun to watch bubble and pop. I think the boys could have watched that all day. Clepsydra was also stunning and worth the stop over. There were many crowds here but it seems as if everyone clusters at the front and doesn’t walk to the back. We then drove back to Grand prismatic and the line was better. Excelsior greats you with steam and haunting views of its size. Watching the water run off into the river is amazing. As you walk up to Grand prismatic you can see the vibrant colors off the surface, all shades of blues and oranges. We liked the view but wanted to see it from the top! Next we planned on doing the fairy falls hike to overlook the Grand prismatic. The bathroom line was so long at Grand prismatic that we assumed there would be one at fairy falls. Well there is not nor at biscuit basin or black basin. With kids with camelbacs on and adults that drink coffee this is an issue. So we headed to Old Faithful. We actually got there 40 min before old faithful performed. So we had a picnic lunch and waited. It was so exciting and surreal to see Old Faithful. The kids loved it and squealed with excitement. After we headed back North to Black Sand Basin. This is a short walk with a ton of character. Totally worth a stop to see all the lively hot springs geysers and basins. We listened to a ranger talk about all the scientific and medical advances and discoveries that have been done because of the bacteria and organisms found in Yellowstone’s hot springs and basins. Continued in comments below
One of the worst things about working again is having to wear clothes that need to be ironed...and then having to iron said clothes. #fitfetti
Day three at Yellowstone we moved camp south to Fishing bridge, the drive was beautiful and filled with wildlife. We set up camp and decided to do something nearby. Right down the street from the campground is Pelican Creek Trail. We took this short trail through the woods and ended up on our own private beach on Yellowstone Lake! Gorgeous views of the mountains and pines all around us. The kids ran so fast and screamed with excitement. The water was freezing but the kids and adults did not mind. We were able to walk out really far and still the water was only waste deep. It was so amazing to swim in the largest alpine lake that was also the center of the volcano 640,000 years ago. We hung out here for a will sitting and enjoying the views while the kids played.
Day two in Yellowstone we explored the Norris geyser basin. To say you have to see it to believe it, is an understatement. This unearthly place is filled with geysers, basins, and bubbling mudpots of multiple colors and sizes. The noise of the wind and geysers, hot springs, and basins was haunting. The smell and heat coming from the area was unreal. Ava loved just looking over the the entire area for above, she said it looked like the moon and mars mixed. Owen loved waiting to see vixen geyser explode and that some of the basins were stinky. We highly recommend taking the time to walk the back basin trail. Every basin and geyser is so much different then the next. Vixen geyser is predictable and often so you can get up close and personal to her exploding performance. A few from our group actually got sprayed a little and were surprised to feel that the water was cold. The emerald and basin were jaw dropping. The colors were so vibrant. Hot, bubbling, smelly, vibrant, geysers, hot springs, and basins all in one location. Standing by a geyser you really get a sense of how small and fragile we are. Standing on a caldera of a super volcano will do that to you. My two favorites on back basin trail were Echinus Geyser and Emerald Spring. We hit this area before lunch time and did not have a crowd issue. Next we went to Canyon village for ice cream (obviously ) and to pick up the scientist jr ranger books. This is where the crowds were cray cray. Could have been the time of day or that the sights to see here are all in a very close area. We started at Lower falls and hiked to get a better view. It was stunning and a moderate hike with elevation changes. Inspiration point and uncle Toms trail were closed so we headed to the South rim and saw a black bear along the way a little of the road grazing in a meadow! We went to Artists point which is another must stop. The view down the canyon is iconic. The Yellowstone Grand Canyon is amazing and Artists point gives you a spectacular view of it. Highly recommend making that spot and take the time to sit and stare at the beauty and colors of the canyon.
We saw our friend @casabay_photo post this quote a while back and flagged it cuz we liked it so much! β€œDo sharks complain about Monday? No! They’re up early. Biting and chasing stuff. Being scary - reminding everyone they’re a shark!” So here’s to another week which enables us to have the money to work on our van conversion and take more adventures together. The future is filled with so many possibilities and working hard always pays off! Have a great week! πŸ¦ˆπŸŒŠπŸ‘. BTW, this photo is from our recent Cali road trip with Van Wilder. Yosemite Valley was crowed, but beautiful! We also have some recommendations for quieter ways to explore the park. Hit us up with any questions!

So full of joy for the huge gathering of National Park Geeks last night at Joshua Tree. It’s amazing getting 60+ Geeks together for the sunset and to gaze at the Milky Way.

πŸ˜πŸŒ¦β›ˆ #GoPro time-lapse video of a monsoon storm forming over #zionnationalpark today (2018.07.15). Zoom to see more over the distant cliffs. There was lightning but it didn't get captured (I have a lot to learn about video but figure it has to do w/ light and the time-lapse interval) . . . #zion #zionbrycenationalparks #nationalparks #nps #findyourpark #fyp #fypyes #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #the60parks #gooutside #monsoon #utah #utahthebeautiful #utahisrad #wowutah #igutah #werutah #desert #ig_utah #bestskyview #divine_deserts #southwest
Dead Horse State Park. West World anyone??
Hard to believe that just a few weeks ago I was spending a sunny Sunday on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon (which by the way, is completely different than the South Rim and deserves a visit). Today, we have spent our day hiding out from the rain in Flagstaff. It wasn’t all bad though, we discovered a fun coffee shop, another great brewery and had tons of great conversations with friends. Hoping the rain lets up soon so we can head back home! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € =============================== #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #nps #goparks #fypyes Β  #nationalparklife #outdoorwomen #adventureisoutthere #adventure #exploremore #explorer #rei1440project #womenwhoexplore #liveauthentic #thegreatoutdoors Β  #wildernessculture Β  #keepitwild #sheisnotlost #lifeofadventure #getoutside #wanderlust #outdoors #optoutside #nature #naturelovers #grandcanyon #northrim #travelgram #grandcanyonnps

Featured creator: @pixelmama . This is your daily reminder that women show us how to fall in love with the world every day. . We all have those days where the world seems rather flat and dull. It’s easy to forget that the grey days will always pass eventually. Sometimes we need somebody to remind us that there’s beauty all around us. . Trina’s work is full of the most vibrant colours and unique perspectives. Light slants beautifully through trees, whilst fog gently winds around the Golden Gate Bridge.

@lucascatania ・・・ trekked out to hidden lake today in @glaciernps !! - this lake lies in the heart of glacier on top of logan pass off the notorious β€œgoing-to-the-sun road!” - i enjoy taking shuttles at parks when i can because usually you get to learn a bit about the park on your way and really be completely engrossed in the present moment. - 🎧 / compass - zella day (louis the child remix) - ____________________________________________________________ #GlacierNPS #exploreGlacier #montana #bigskycountry #montanalife #montanamoment #visitmt #visitmontana #socality #montanalove #lastbestplace #montanagram #nationalparks Β  #nationalparkservice #nationalparkusa #findyourpark #exploretocreate #passionpassport #socalitymontana #ig_naturelovers #nps #fypyes #neverstopexploring #ourplanetdaily Β  #instatravel #instapassport #igtravel πŸŒ²πŸπŸŒΏβ›°πŸ“·πŸŽ£πŸ»β„οΈπŸŒ²πŸ•ΆπŸŒ¦πŸΏβ˜€οΈπŸ§’πŸŒžπŸš΅πŸΌβ€β™€οΈβ›ΊοΈπŸŒŒπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘£πŸ˜ŽπŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸŒΌπŸŒˆπŸ’¦β˜ƒοΈπŸΊπŸš΅πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸŽ¨πŸ’‹πŸŒΌπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ
It has been four months since I last visited Yosemite. Time to plan for another trip!
Clamberin’ around Canyonlands! Don’t overlook this park and Mesa Arch specifically if you are in the area! Photo credit: @alexandra_abroad
