Permit season is upon us, find your trail.. and good luck! 🌲
Thankful for all the volunteers and staff willing to help keep the parks and protected lands clean, safe, and partially running during the shutdown 🌍
When you dont know how to pose for a picture but also feel awkward to stand there and smile...So then you get a picture like this 😬
I HATE getting my picture taken, especially close up shots. I recently had to take photos for a brand that required a head shot and i just kept telling my husband "my face is so ugly! 😩
I know everyone is their own worse critic but sometimes you have to be kind to yourself...i have to work on that.
Although i see SO MANY flaws of myself. 1 thing that i can say i like about myself (physically) is... I guess my smile.
Baby steps of #selflove
Your turn: Whats your favorite physical trait about yourself?
P.S. if you can walk and breathe and climb and jump...consider yourself lucky and learn to love your body.
It's that time of year again when snowy sessions are IN! In case you didn't know, I'm a HUGE fan of the snow...funny since I'm from Florida. ;) ⠀
As much as I love the snow, taking pictures in it isn't always the easiest and takes a little bit of motivation - motivation that's always well worth the adventures to be had! ⠀
Today on the blog I'm sharing 5 tips for taking photos in the snowy mountains! Link in bio.
Would you be up for snow?!
“Please, know that I’m yours to keep. My beautiful girl.”
That backcountry sunset feeling...
“Give me adventure, again, and again, and again, until my legs ache and lungs burn, and I know every single road home.” 🌲🏔👣
The mist of Narada Falls is beautiful and refreshing...and windy!
sometimes, there’s beauty all around but you can’t see out
Something a little different! I suck at sticking to a theme 😂
One of the country's best kept treasures are it's amazing systems of 60 National Parks. I have spent countless sunrises and sunsets exploring nooks and crannies of many of the parks, and every one of them has managed to surprise me, not just in their natural beauty, but in the people who have worked to preserve this for posterity. It takes incredible foresight and effort to manage the many competing goals of such a system, and that has constantly left me in awe of this challenge.
And now, the unneeded shutdown, instigated by the theatrics of a clown, has thrown a wrench in a delicately balanced environment. While federal employees all over the country do suffer, it pains me to see the what the park system is going through to continue it's mission. Full props to the brave people who have worked tirelessly to this effort. And if you are a fan of the National Parks, I urge you to do your part: volunteer your time or money to the various Park foundations that assist the National Park System.
When my hands are finally healed, I hope to lend my hand to heal the National parks as well. I feel it is a moral obligation to return the favor for all the joyous moments I have experienced in the amazing National Park System. You can help too: purchase my 2019 calendar here: https://goo.gl/ZnrRdk, and all proceeds will be split between the National Park Foundation and WildAid
Nothing like a government shutdown to help us remember the gift we have in our public lands and national parks. How about these #views
