You’re only as beautiful as the love you have for other people. And this earth. Filled with so much art. 🍀🍃☘🌿
Scenes from today’s hike above Namche Bazaar. It was nice to revisit some favorite places, take in the amazing views, watch folks working in the fields, visit one of the local monasteries and enjoy the perfect weather. One for the books. .

So I'm walking along this paved path in Yosemite, heading towards Lower Yosemite falls from the Village. I'm not really paying attention as to my surroundings, just looking up at the sights. I focus back to what's ahead of me, and look what's walking towards me on the path! I got off a couple of quick shots, hoping he wasn't going to impale me with his horns. But he just kept on his way like I wasn't even there... #instagram #landscapes #landscapephotography #photography #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #deer #buck #yosemite #yosemitenp #yosemitenps #yosemiteconservancy #yosemitenation #abc7eyewitness #yosemitefacelift #yosemitevalley #granite #highsierras #sierras #findyourpark #goparks #optoutside #getolympus #california #visitcalifornia #nps #nationalparks #usinterior

Autumn is amazing in Acadia. ••••• Thanks to Colin @cmz.photo for the gorgeous shot. ——-- Yesterday I got home and finished up two weeks of shooting around Maine and Mew Hampshire. I started in the White Mountains and made my way east towards Acadia. The trip started out mostly unsuccessful. Vistas weren’t going to work out because the weather was so dreary. I needed to adapt my shooting style to the conditions I was given. This was mid-range and telephoto season! Forest and waterway season. The second half of fall displayed some of the most impressive foliage and diffused light I had ever seen. This is the first of many absolutely amazing places I was able to visit during the month of October. I can’t wait to share the rest! . Oh yeah. Fall isn’t even over yet! I may still try to get out. But at this point I am more than satisfied with my pull from the season. . . . . . . #exploremore #acadianationalpark #ignewengland #seascape #mainetheway #mainelife #seascapes #goatworthy #igersmaine #landscape_capture #naturalnewengland #nationalparks #wearestillwild #maineisgorgeous #maine #exploremaine #mainething #naturalnewengland #goparks #nationalparkgeek #lovemaine #visitmaine #freshairandfreedom #inthewoods #maine #campingcollective #scenesofnewengland @naturalnewengland @exploremaine ——- #nationalparkgeek

Preston the guide submitted this amazing photo of the Black Canyon. Even in the cooler months the beauty of the Black Canyon on the Colorado River never goes away. . . . . . #prijon #blackcanyon #59parks #riverlife #evolutionexpeditionskayaking #eeklv #love #photooftheday #lucky #naturephotgraphy #nature #emeraldcave #kayaksquad #outdoors #willowbeach #kayaktours #desert #findyourpark #findyourway #lakemeadnps #adventure #goparks #hooverdam #coloradoriver #naturegirl #aquabound #paddle
Every time I saw a trumpeter swan I was astonished at their beauty and size. Most of the time they were too far away to photograph but I was fortunate to find this one within lens distance. Trumpeter swans numbers are dwindling in Yellowstone, human interaction is believed to be the cause. Recently I found a location where I could go for amazingly close interaction but I wasn't going to ignore closed signs on the trail down to the lake even though I saw numerous people there every time I passed. My stunning photo on Instagram isn't worth interfering in their existence. #trumpeterswan • • • • • #yellowstonenationalpark #nps #findyourpark #goparks #optoutside #stayandwander #thatswy #ynpforever #yellowstonepledge #wyoming #getoutside #protectpubliclands #explorenationalparks #eatyourpaisleytravels #visitwyoming #wearethewild #animal_bestshots #nationalparklife #wildernessculture #keepitwild #wildlifephotography #wildlifelovers #wildlifeaddicts #wildernessculture #naturephotography #nikonphotography #whatgetsyououtdoors #nature_perfection
Conversation with one of my students before I left: S: You’re leaving? M: Yes I’m going to Canada. S: So your moving there? Why are you going there? Who’s going to be our art teacher? M: (laughing) No I’m just going there to vacation. S: Oh, so your coming back right? I’m starting to think my student was on to something.. y’all can find me in Canada. I don’t want to leave. . . . #choosemountainswomen #madewild #wanderfolk #keepexploring #neverstopexploring #outdoorwoman #womenwhoexplore #sheexplores #mountaingirls #findyourpark #nationalparklife #goparks #radparks #freshairandfreedom #theladyalliance #mtnchicks #mountaingirls #ladiesgetoutside #adventureanywhere #liveyouradventure #womenwhohike #girlswhohike #vancitywild #buff #ahnufootwear #patagonia #eddiebauer #smartwool #ospreypacks #burtongirls #getdownriseup
Bagged my 💯th Peak! 45th of the year! Nothing better than standing on top of a mountain!! #PeakBagging #peakaweek #GuyePeak #ChairPeak
The first scan of @yosemitenps I posted was from this hike. My initial walk to Mirror Lake had been much warmer and without any snow. This encounter was completely different, but the white blanket covering the land and granite cliff faces made for truly a #winter wonderland. We found a perfect lunch spot with a view comparable to a movie backdrop. - Don’t get me wrong, it was tough to be under one roof with six girls—especially with a small kitchen and limited bathroom time. Despite those challenges, I miss the chats around the dining room table, impromptu adventures to chase waterfalls or gaze at stars, board game fails, challah bread baking lessons, and the simple enjoyment of having this magical place as our backyard. 🏞
Spent a coooold ❄️ night camped out at 9000ft before venturing out into Great Sand Dunes National Park
Backpackers: do you pack light or overpack (like I clearly did here)? Even when I try to stay super minimalist, I always find myself missing the comforts of nice-to-haves. My back would hurt less if I had that tiny chair to lounge in at camp, or I reallllly wish I brought my wide angle lens! Anyone else know the feeling? . . . . . . #yosemitenation #parksproject #nationalparkgeek #goparks #findyourpark #usinterior #ospreypacks #forceofnature #californiacaptures #wildernessculture #backpacker_pics #backcountry #rei1440project #optoutside #theoutbound #takeahike #findyourtrail #idhikethat #backpackingadventures #hikingculture #hiking_daily #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #girlswhohike #likeamountaingirl

It’s the middle of the week, Travelers. Where is the trail taking you? If it’s someplace in Mount Rainier National Park, then you’ll know there is more to this place than *just* “The Mountain.” Even on a rainy day, it’s gorgeous. To learn more about this national park, go to www.nationalparkstraveler.org and type “Mount Rainier” in the search field. #nationalparkstraveler #nationalpark #nationalparks #washington #washingtonstate #mountrainier #mountrainiernationalpark #mtrainier #trail #path #hike #forest #trees #landscape #landscapephotography #canon #canonusa #canonphotography #optoutside #goparks #findyourpark

When I visited the Grand Canyon last fall I was able to witness a spectacular sunset from the rim. The sky was exploding in color in every direction and I thought the scene couldn’t possibly get any better. Then I glimpsed the Colorado River glowing pink and purple in the inky depths of the canyon. Knowing the light wouldn’t last long I sprinted back to the car to grab my zoom lens, swapped out my 16-35 for my 150-600, placed my camera on my tripod, zoomed in and fired off just three shots before the light faded. This was certainly not the shot I was anticipating when I imagined shooting sunset that evening (typically I like to shoot at about the focal length the human eye sees) but I’m glad I let inspiration strike and followed it where it took me, which happened to be the floor of the Grand Canyon!
So many colors
I’ve never been one to welcome the cooler months. I’m all about sunshine, warmth and beach days. This year things feel a little different. I think I may be okay with the slower pace, sleepy days cuddled inside and the changing seasons. Also, when you get the chance to take in the fall colors on the coast of Maine you just don’t mind that the weather is cooling down.
On our first attempt getting to Moraine Lake, the parking lot closed just a few minutes before we got there! Instead of waiting for a shuttle at the overflow lot, we opted to come back even earlier on another day. Luckily for me, that meant Otto waking up at 4AM and shoving me into the car (sleeping bag and all 😂). When we got to the lot, he took off towards the lake for some stargazing + sunrise while I slept for another 3 hrs 🙈 moral of the story: sometimes you’re sick, dog tired, and things don’t go as planned, so always be sure to bring along a morning person to get you up and at it heheh 📸: @bavarian.cowboy
“...Be water, my friend” - Bruce Lee... • • Here’s the full quote, which I love: “Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.” #goparks #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #nationalpark #nps #welltravelled #exploremore #travelstoke #roamtheplanet #travel #doyoutravel #instatravel #lonelyplanet #alwaysgo #freedomthinkers #visualwanderlust #welivetoexplore #wildernessculture #optoutside #lifeofadventure #adventure #photographer #photographylife #creativepreneur #shootandshare #destinationphotographer #water #brucelee

I’m king of the world! 🌎 Here's a 360 view from the top of Half Dome in 2015. The mileage was long, the elevation gain (at times) soul-crushing, but the views from the top were worth every step. Who would you hike Half Dome with?! 🏞 @YosemiteNPS .

Sunset over White Sands 🧡
From when the air smelled like pink lemonade....JK it totes smelled like everything was burning
Understated beauty in @acadianps. #FindYourPark
Fall is without question my favorite season, but sometimes you forget that it exists when you live in Southern California! Drive 10 hours north and the landscape definitely gets a bit spookier (not to mention, this is where most Bigfoot sightings occur) 🎃
Bryce Canyon National Park is a total jewel 🧡 - - - - #ourwanderthirst #brycecanyonnationalpark #utah

Beautiful weekend at Acadia National Park! Nothing beats the ocean views in Maine🦀 I remember playing on these rocky shores as a kid with my cousins. It's a huge playground! Thursday night my cousin @rickyhildy showed us around Portsmouth, NH (safe to say it's now one of our favorite towns) Friday through Sunday we had perfect weather and spent it hiking @acadianps (to our van life friends, if you make it out to ME, hit us up😉) · · · #maine #acadia #acadianationalpark #fall #autumn #newengland #vanlife #rockyshore #atlanticocean #travelcouple #vanlifecouple #vanconversion #eastcoast #eastcoastvanlife #lobstah #barharbor #precipicetrail #northbubble #champlainmountain #roadwarriors360 #homeiswhereyouparkit #nationalpark #neverstopexploring #explore #nomads #goparks #findyourpark
