Where will you explore this year? This is @charlie.hoving ascending the eastern ridge of Edwards Mountain above Sperry Glacier Basin in 2011. I loved this climb! There was very little scree and the folds in the mountain (seen in phot) were a lot of fun to climb through.

This week is National Park Week, a good time to celebrate โ€œAmericaโ€™s best ideaโ€ and reflect on what the protection of these public lands means for us. One of my favorite things about our parks is that they protect some of the last remaining spots in the country where you can truly experience dark skies. Modern technology can make us lose perspective in all sorts of ways, and weโ€™re quickly losing the physical ability to look to the heavens above for a sense of place in our universe. Eighty percent of Americans can no longer see the Milky Way, and in many cities you can barely see the stars at all. What would a world be like if there was no place to go to see the stars? I donโ€™t want to find out, and thatโ€™s why I find it so important to support our National Parks. - Glacier National Park, Montana | July 2016
Our latest @compasscoalition release is live, click the link in my bio or pop over to our Facebook page for the full video! We had a blast shooting with @propercloth in @joshuatreenps and the surrounding Mojave Desert! Huge thanks to @sephskerritt @harrisonbrunswick @chriscallis @rafaellazzini for being such great teammates! Would love to hear what you think of the video, so please leave us a comment over on the book and share it if you dig it!

I played tee-ball when I was a little girl, but I wasnโ€™t very good. Mom says I would let everything fly by me because I was way more interested in picking flowers (or grass, probably grass). If weโ€™re lucky, sometimes these little quirks stay with us as we grow older. I hope you never feel like youโ€™re too busy to stop and appreciate the flowers. ๐ŸŒผ #GoParks #FindYourPark #Yosemite #LateEarthDayPost

โ€œThere was a time Iโ€™d try to mold myself into perfect; until I realized that perfection is as slippery as attempting to capture and cling to a leaf, expecting it to never change color. That holding so tightly to reins in a world that turns and wants and reaches for the new, only boxes us into basements. Step off the treadmill of destruction. Open the door. Let the light in.โ€๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ“ธ: @billchopp
View of the James River from Drewry's Bluff near Richmond, #Virginia . This site was home to an earthen fort and post for the #Confederate Army beginning in 1862. The Battle of Drewry's Bluff took place May 15, 1862. The #Union attempt to take Richmond by river failed.

These things really take us places. With some serious grip, our @stabilgear hike macro #stabilicers keep us from having to turn around on any hike. The coolest part to me is you can scale these suckers back and take off the heavy duty spikes at the toe. Light or heavy ice, we keep moving. . . . . . . #pnw #colorado #currentlycolorado #pacific #creativeshoots #olympic #wildernessbabe #mountainchicks #womenwhohike #denverphotographer #washington #hohrainforest #backpacking #rainforest #stabil #outdoorproject #spring #goparks #watercanyon #organicad #PNWhat ?! #olympicelk #hiking #ice #hiking
It's National Park Week! I love these places. They've taught me so much about myself, nature, and my fellow travelers. "Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods..." - John Muir #findyourpark #goparks #npx10

Still celebrating National Park Week by looking at old photos. This one is from Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. I don't really understand the science behind why the glaciers are blue, but I do know they are blue-tiful! ๐Ÿคฃ Fun Fact: There are approximately 100,000 glaciers in Alaska and approximately 1000 in Glacier Bay National Park. Happy National Park Week!
Honestly I donโ€™t even know what day it is anymore and I donโ€™t care. Itโ€™s beautiful out here. ๐Ÿ’• #PNW #HohRainforest #goparks @olympicnationalpark

We didn't need a story, we didn't need a real world We just had to keep walking And we became the stories // I used to be preoccupied with what everyone else was doing. But then I woke up one day and started seeing my own surroundings. What I was doing. I realized the tiny moments were often monumental, and the mountaintop moments were only but a blip in the sweet journey it took to get there. Oh to be alive and mindful of the moments happening all around me. This changed everything. Don't miss your moments. #mindfulness ______________________________________________________ #womenwhoexplore #wearetravelgirls #sheisnotlost #radgirlslife #mountaingirls #alpinebabes #mtnchicks #dametraveler #Darlingescapes #outdoorwomen #herwanderfullife #wildernessbabes #femmetravel #womenwhotravel #sheexplores #thetravelwoman #girldiscoverers #wildlifegirls #hikingculture #andshesdopetoo #playoutside #goparks #snowboarding #backcountry #iloveutah #womenwhohike #werehikers #thehikemovement #shoestringwarrior

Today is the day that I finally feel human again. I have been out shooting sunrise to sunset for days now. Doing that really takes a toll on sleep. This image is one I have been working on for a few weeks. Well.. I started it a few weeks back and gave up because i couldnโ€™t get the mask clean for the life of me. Then I accidentally used the clone brush on the tree line and boom! I found a new way to mask. I feel like a total idiot for not doing this on purpose. Arenโ€™t most breakthroughs accidents? Iโ€™ll keep telling myself that. . . . . . #exploremore #acadianationalpark #ignewengland #seascape #mainetheway #mainelife #nightphotography #goatworthy #igersmaine #landscape_capture #naturalnewengland #nationalparks #wearestillwild #maineisgorgeous #everytrailconnects #maine #exploremaine #mainething #naturalnewengland #createscenery #goparks #briskoutdoors #nationalparkgeek #lovemaine #visitmaine #freshairandfreedom #inthewoods #maine #campingcollective #scenesofnewengland @exploremaine

One of Yellowstoneโ€™s coolest hikes is the Brink of the Lower Falls Trail. A short hike takes you to the top of the roaring falls.

I know I should have had my feet hanging over the cliff in this shot but honestly traversing the canyon walls down the Hermit Trail was enough excitement for me ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคฃ

Determined to hike into Bryce Canyon, we ventured cautiously and carefully...until a family of four with NO gear skipped their way past us. Goes to show that fancy gear is helpful, but all you really need is a love of the outdoors. #BeCuriousNotCautious #JustGo #GetOutside โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #nationalparkweek #goparks #womenwhohike #takemeback #NaturePhotography #AdventureTravel #ExploreMore #TravelMore #Adventure #hiking #brycecanyonnps #brycecanyon #hoodoostrail
Sol Duc Falls is the perfect low effort, high reward hike. Itโ€™s 1.6 miles round trip with very little elevation gain and the entire forest feels like something Disney dreamed up!

For one week each April, @national_park_service teams up with @goparks , the official charity of America's national parks, to celebrate America's treasures. __________________ #NationalParkWeek is a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, help out, and #findyourpark ! __________________ They are called #americasbestidea and I donโ€™t disagree. __________________ I was fortunate to visit a few National Parks last year. All remarkably unique destinations tucked away in this lovely country. __________________ I am sharing this sunset from Cadillac Mountain @acadianps because of all the parks I visited, this is the Park my mind keeps returning. Hopefully I can catch a trip this fall and catch some leaf colors. __________________ #letsgosomewhere #acadianationalpark #maine #visitmaine #goparks #keepitwild #wildme #travelgram #instatravel #roamculture #wildernessculture #hikingadventures #greettheoutdoors #eastcoastcreatives #optoutside #stayandwander #exploremore #greettheoutdoors #theoutbound #nationalparkphotography #nationalparkgeek #nature_brilliance #outsideculture #naturelovers #enjoylife #spiritjunkie
