I’m not going to lie, I was more excited than usual when I first laid eyes on the #mesquiteflatsanddunes in #deathvalleynationalpark . If you know me, “more excited than usual” is saying something given my constant high levels of enthusiasm for pretty much all things. As we were driving along the main road we came around a bend and these beautiful dunes presented themselves on the horizon. I immediately told @whoa_wo_joe to stop the car so I could take pictures... and then we repeated that about 5 times until we made it to the trailhead. I yelled behind me as I ran off that “we don’t have to go all the way to the top,” but I’m pretty sure he knew we would because he went back and grabbed the water. As we’d already summited Wildrose Peak that morning when we finally made it over to this area of the park the sun was on it way down and we got to enjoy the dunes during golden hour, moonrise, and sunset. As we trudged through the fine sand the crowds thinned and it was easy to imagine what it would feel like to be lost out in the desert. When we finally stood at the top of this 100 foot dune there was a cotton candy colored sunset to the west and a almost full moon to the east. Sometimes in nature you just get lucky and witness the most magical things simply because you took the time to be available. . . . #hike #hikecalifornia #california #visitcalifornia #optoutside #forceofnature #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #52hikechallenge #womenwhohike #wwhmember #girlswhohike #todsl #socaltravels #canonrebelt6 #landscapephotography #deathvalley #sanddunes #getoutstayout #betheadventure #wearethewild #wildcalifornia #wildernessbadass #landscapescapture #tourtheplanet #national_park_photography
Almost left early this morning but views like this one from Swinging Bridge made me glad I stuck around 😎 I’ve tagged a few of my friends whose accounts I think you’ll enjoy. #iphone8plus #nationalpark #yosemitenationalpark #nationalgeographic #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography
Hadlock Pond Trail Acadia National Park
Last night I read a book called “Death in Glacier National Park: Stories of Accidents and Foolhardiness In the Crown of the Continent” by Randi Mentor. What a very interesting book it has been! I must say that I am very sadly shocked by the number of people who have been killed along the McDonald Creek. It’s just sad the number of children who have drowned in the creek - and then the park rangers jump into the water to save them - and they end up getting killed themselves!! This is a photo of McDonald Creek along the trail that runs along it. There are simply way to many people not being careful around this place. The water is absolutely freezing even during the summer from the glaciers melting if you fall in it’s hard to escape. #glaciernationalpark #glacier_national_park #nationalparkservice #optoutside
When the sun hits the formations at the canyon, it’s like nothing you have ever seen! I love our place. I never thought that I would feel this way, but after our river trip last year, that all changed. I hope everyone gets a chance to explore this place. Hearing the ravens as they fly by or the wind rushing up from below. Whether it’s from the rim or from the river, I promise you, it will change you forever. #changedforever #exploretocreate #ourplanetdaily #national_park_photography #landscapephotography #visit_arizona #landscape #igsouthwest #instagramaz #arizona #hikeaz #canyon #grandcanyon #nps #nationalparkgeek #sunrise #lifeofadventure #divine_deserts #arizonaphotographer #photooftheday #lovethis #❤️
Anyone wanna go lobstering? Props to the two guy on the boat for braving those cold temps. We were watching the whole bay freeze up throughout the day and it did plenty of that! I really like how the ice formed from the receding tide accented the coastline, especially the classic Maine granite! At least I think that's granite.. .

Currently spending my week on Mount Desert Island taking a class! Doesn't mean theres no time for photos though! It's still pretty cold and I'm pretty busy in the lab, but there's still some time to sneak out and take some shots. This was actually taken very close to the lab I'm working in so the commute wasnt so bad! Looking forward to what this week brings! .

I see all these gorgeous owl photos on Instagram - and I’ll admit it - I’m jealous! The owls really really do not like me at all. Every time I see an owl they’re like: Dude you stink! Stay away from me 😞 and then they turn their back on me and look the other way 😣! #optoutside #naturephotography #owlsofinstagram

"No Name" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While on vacation in 2013, I visited the Cataloochee Valley in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park to view the wild elk there. I spoke to a ranger, and she told me this particular elk's name was "No Name." I did not ask, but I guess when he was born, they did not catch him in time to tag him or give him a collar. I like that he doesn’t have a collar because it makes for a better photograph. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Cataloochee Valley, North Carolina ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have been posting older photos on Fridays. Most of them have been on my Facebook photography page or my other social media, but I have not shared them on Instagram. I decided to start a new hashtag with them.

When you hike through the night, choose your campsite in the dark and wake up to realise you absolutely nailed it. Even if completely by accident.... . . . . 📷 in the pilot wilderness area. #hikeaustralia #australianalps #seeaustralia #australia #kosciuszko #hiker #pioneerwalks #wildflowers #nationalpark #national_park_photography #getlostnow #visitaustralia #travelplaylive #hikingadventures #adventurenthusiasts #weareexplorers #pioneerwalks #hikrlife
The fence is Friday, and just beyond......the weekend 🎉
