Lure of colours.+.+.
sea in the sky ~ above the western hills ~ in the shadow of the sierras
Planted over 100 trees (Acacia koa) and Pilo (Coprosma montana) earlier this week with George. It’s nice to work next to your boss for 10 hrs in the rain and still be laughing at the end of the day. . . . . #livealoha #Auwahi #acaciakoa #luckywelivehawaii #hawaiistagram #explore #ourwild #keepitwild #reflect #maui #auwahiwind #hawaiiadventures #natgeotravel #wildlifebiology #ulapalakua #landscape #hikehawaii #kanaio #mauinui #lighttheland #conservation #botany #koa #sustainability
Tens of thousands of people flock to Lone Pine in an attempt to summit our nation's highest peak - Mount Whitney. I live about a block over from Whitney Portal Rd. 😁 #HumbleBrag #MyWeekend #WhitneyPortal #MtWhitney #Cali #LonePine #USFS #Mountains #ExploreMore #OptOutside #Exploring #Wanderlust #SCA #LightTheLand #Hiking #GypsySoul #Adventure #Beautiful #Landscape #travelphotography #travelgram #Canon #CanonRebel
A reconstructed guard tower. Many people believed internees were free to leave the "War Relocation Center" and that the military presence was for their protection. If so, why were the guns pointed inside the camp? #Manzanar #NPS #NHS #USHistory #NeverForget #WWII #SCA #LightTheLand #WhyIConserve
Picked some pears from the orchard today to share with visitors 😊🍐#Orchard #Pears #Fruit #Manzanar #NHS #Mountains #MotherNature #Nature #SCA #LightTheLand

Admin Area Labor Day Project: 1. Excavated waterway 2. Repaired concrete 3. Still fixing... 4. Cleared the Town Hall and Post Office areas. There are a lot of other things we did that aren't pictured 😁 #Manzanar #NHS #NHS #SCA #LightTheLand #HistoricPreservation #Archaeology #USHistory #WWII #TBT #WhyIConserve #LoveIsOutThereContest
How archaeologists share donuts πŸ˜‚πŸ©β› Throwback to last Friday when we excavated the admin area #IHopeTheTrowelWasClean #Donuts #Breakfast #Archaeology #Archaeologist #SCA #LightTheLand #LaborDay #TBT
Morning stroll past the Judo Dojo. This pathway connected the changing room to the main building #Manzanar #NHS #NPS #HistoricPreservation #SCA #LightTheLand #USHistory #AmericanHistory #Mountains #GoodMorning #WWII
Paper cranes from the last pilgrimage placed around the cemetery. The characters mean "soul consoling tower" #Manzanar #NHS #NPS #SCA #LightTheLand #HistoricPreservation #USHistory #WWII #Cali #PaperCranes #Respect #Cemetary
Took a stroll this morning to better familiarize myself with the area. This is one of the many ponds/gardens made by internees. Please excuse the brush & tree litter, I'm sure I'll be cleaning that out soon enough 😊 #Manzanar #NHS #NPS #HistoricPreservation #SCA #LightTheLand #OptOutside #Mountains #Cali #GoatWorthy #USHistory #WWII
Can you imagine trying to teach our constitution to a group of children that were ripped from their homes and had their lives turned upside down just because of their race??

"Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another." // John Muir Major thanks to Htiwari for this stunning entry in our Capture Conservation Photo Contest. #caves #whyiconserve #keepitwild #optoutside #lighttheland #stayandwander #naturevisuals #lifeofadventure #forgeyourownpath #wildernessculture #makeadventure #getoutstayout #naturelovers #liveoutdoors #theoutdoorfolk #instanature #natures_hub #exploremore
Imagined to be back in last summer's lavender fields in France for an afternoon. The same smell, heat, and sun, just a continent away. | #FujifilmXPro2 | #LavenderFestival | πŸ“·: @kyuichikun
Dive into the ocean on the right, lay in a field of flowers to the left, a hill to climb ahead, and this is where I would leave life behind. Ideally, where I'd leave third year. | #BigSur | #FujifilmXPro2

Mitoma family reunion weekend. Been looking forward to this for months. We definitely don't see each other often enough ❀️ | #CarmelByTheSea | #FujifilmXPro2
When the sun sets, the desert comes alive in the coolness of the night. When the moon sets, the stars also come out of hiding, with only the light pollution below to obscure the heavens. | #JoshuaTree | #FujifilmXPro2 | #ifsleepwasoptional
Found the castle above the clouds. Built in 1915 by George Knapp, the mansion survived until 1945 when it was burned down in a forest fire. Now you can enjoy the view over the Santa Ynez River Valley from atop the stone arches and remnants of this once grand estate. πŸ“·: @suhmailinh | #fujifilmxpro2 | #santabarbara
FACT: In one year, a single mature oak tree can move 40,000 gallons of water from its roots to its leaves. Thank you to Josh Blouin for entering our Capture Conservation Photo Contest with this unique perspective from inside a tree. #backcountry #tree #treetrunk #whyiconserve #hiking #keepitwild #optoutside #lighttheland #stayandwander #naturevisuals #lifeofadventure #forgeyourownpath #wildernessculture #makeadventure #getoutstayout #naturelovers #liveoutdoors #theoutdoorfolk #instanature #natures_hub #exploremore
Argyroxiphium sandwichense or 'ahinahina traps then stores water as a gel in intracellular spaces where other plants contain air. They can live up to 40 years but soon after the last branch flowers independently from the main plant, they up and die. The Haleakala subspecies has more florets than those found on Mauna Kea (Big Island). There is an active effort at Haleakala to protect this endangered species. . . . . #rareplants #endangeredspecies #livealoha #luckywelivehawaii #hawaiistagram #sunset #birdsofinstagram #explore #ourwild #keepitwild #beautifuldestinations #artphotography #maui #moodygrams #artofvisuals #hawaiiadventures #natgeotravel #socialnomads #earthpics #roamtheplanet #exploremore #stayandwander #gooutsideandplay #travel #macro #hikehawaii #SCAserve #haleakala #nationalpark #lighttheland
"The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness." // John Muir. Zach Becker and his best friend hiked this expansive desert landscape in Colorado while his camera captured hundreds of 30 second exposures. The image above is a composite of all the photos, which captures not only the hike but also the path of the stars that night. #Colorado #hiking #keepitwild #optoutside #lighttheland #stayandwander #naturevisuals #lifeofadventure #forgeyourownpath #wildernessculture #makeadventure #getoutstayout #naturelovers #liveoutdoors #theoutdoorfolk #instanature #natures_hub #exploremore
Dragged @kyuichikun with me up above the cloudline to watch the sun take back the day from the waning gibbous. The icy wind kept us awake as the first rays of sun painted the tips of the clouds with its warm glow. | #FujifilmXPro2 | #ifsleepwasoptional
Officially stepped over the hurdle of year 2, a little worse for wear and still a long ways to go - because it ain't over yet. See you after Step 1. | #NoguchiGarden | πŸ“·: @suhmailinh
FACT: Did you know the rock layers that make up "The Wave" are actually layers of windblown sand from 190 million years ago?

Save the Nene mission @ Haleakala NP is going strong. Their population is now estimated around 2,500 on Maui, Molokai, Kauai, Oahu, and Big island. It is one of conservation's more successful stories in Hawaii but we cannot protect these sensitive islands from invasives and extinction of native wildlife by only looking at the success stories. . . . #livealoha #luckywelivehawaii #hawaiistagram #sunset #birdsofinstagram #explore #ourwild #keepitwild #destinationearth #beautifuldestinations #artphotography #maui #moodygrams #artofvisuals #hawaiiadventures #natgeotravel #socialnomads #earthpics #roamtheplanet #exploremore #stayandwander #gooutsideandplay #tourism #travel #landscapephotography #hikehawaii #lighttheland #haleakala #nationalpark #wild
3am skies in Joshua Tree to watch the peak of the April Lyrids that appears near the constellation Lyra. The waning crescent moon didn't rise until late morning, so we luckily had a dark sky from our view in the middle of Joshua Tree National Park. If you look closely, I happened to catch a little streak of a meteor in the middle of the frame. Once again, Mother Nature never disappoints. #EarthDay | #FujifilmXPro2 | #JoshuaTree

So much nature, so little time, and it all makes me feel so much and yet so small at the same time. | #Yosemite | #FujifilmXPro2
Perfect weather up to Nevada and Vernal Falls. Short but sweet celebration after our 11th exam cycle of hell. | #FujifilmXpro2 | #YosemiteNationalPark
Saturday's last clear skies before the storm rolled in over the tufas on Mono Lake. Apparently these tufas were formed when calcium rich springs mixed with carbonate rich lake water, CaCO3 formed, the water lost CO2 due to lower atmospheric pCO2, increased pH, and precipitated with the help of bacteria. Lucky calcium stones don't work like this so you don't get something like this stuck in your kidney. πŸ™„ | #medschoolisruiningmylife | #CanonRebelXsi
