Strolling through the desert. I enjoyed watching an old man doing all he could to hike the highest dune. It took him a while, but he made it.
It was July 9, 2017. I pulled off of Highway 35 along Flathead Lake to take photos of the sun behind a thick line of forest fire smoke. At the time, I did not know this would be the (early) start to one of the worst wildfire seasons in history for Montana and it would burn over a million acres πŸ˜” I pray that 2018 will be a FAR less active season.

While in Wallowa Whitman National Forest, I snapped this shot while in the road. Few people were coming down this highway and I could see why when I walked onto it. It was super icy! Thankful for snow tires and the knowledge on how to drive in such conditions. 😨 . . . . . . . . . . . #icytrees #ice #icy #cold #winterishere #winter #highway #wallowawhitmannationalforest #nationalforest #nationalforests #tree #trees #mountains #woods #forest #forests

A raft of otters in Sitka Sound, photo by our photography instructor @lioneclarephotography // These adorable marine mammals are one of many that find home in the oceans of Southeast Alaska and you will likely see and be able to photograph several on one of our wildlife watching tours! We are currently working on setting up tour bookings through our website, so for now contact neil@awhalessongexpeditions.com or (907)-738-9890 with any questions or to book a tour.

You know that feeling you get when you dip your head back, spin in a circle, and take in the trees and sky? Yeah, that's what I'm chasing. πŸƒ #naturelovers #nationalforest #statepark #adventures #getoutside #goexplore #explorewithfriends #nature #outdoorsman #wildwoman #serene #forest #feels #wild #hikingadventures #outdoorlife #camplife #sunrise
Oh so many beautiful memories under this rock, from playing yahtzee, buliding fires, to finding a gift from sasquatch after digging the whole inner cave out, this whole place contains magic that can only be experienced to percieve. #blessed #endlesslove #nationalforest #staywild
I'm forever wishing I lived closer to the mountains and had more time to spend hiking the trails. Already looking forward to the next trip. 😍 #miniaussie #australianshepherd #hikingwithdogs #hikingdogsofinsta #campingwithdogs #traildogs #backpacking #girlswhohike #ruffwear #rvadogs #nationalforest #appalachiantrail #themountainsarecalling #adventure #getoutside #optoutside

Standing on top of a ridge in Spearfish Canyon, watching a light snow fall gives you a chance to reflect. I have been doing plenty of things outside of my comfort zone recently and I will not lie, I struggle with uncertainty. This includes where my next step will be, where my travels take me and when they will start and end. This uncertain feeling gets your adrenaline pumping and yesterday was no different. It was an adventure that started and ended with some shaky legs and a racing heart beat, but the view in the middle was something to kill for. What I have learned is that pushing yourself to your limits helps you overcome them. Plus, you gain an amazing story to tell. . . . On a side note, plan on taking an adventure partner along that you trust completely. They will be more than helpful when you explore. . . . #keepitwild #discoverblackhills #blackhills #nationalforest #southdakota #hifromsd #spearfishcanyon #winter #snow #snowcoveredtrees #pinetrees #explore #adventure #hikemore #worryless #livemore #thinkless #womenwhoexplore #idhikethatcrew #womenwhohike #wwhmember #sheexplores #explorewinter #hikingismagical #optoutside #awakethesoul #amongthewild
I forgot my hat, so Aaron let me wear his. Looks better on him, though. <3 #nationalforest #volunteer #forestservice
Sorting through old edits and outtakes. Can't tell one from another sometimes. Square format prevented me from posting this before. A good..third of this shot missing from the top of it. Took a lot of horizontal shots to pan this vertically, so it is overwhelmingly taller that what is visible. Honestly though, how many of you even bother to look up as you hike through the forest? Just assuming the trees are too passive to silently drop a heavy branch on your blissful head. If I had to title this photo anything it would probably be Respect. I hate giving photos titles though. Like those pre-meme motivational posters.. just dig the light. Or the dark. Whatever. See why I hate outtakes? #headsup #CRI #plumasnationalforest #wildlandfirephotos #mountainmoney #verticalpano #nikonartists #wildlandfire #nationalforest #californiawildfires #sierranevada
Congress was nearly unanimous in passing the Wilderness Act in 1964: "it is hereby declared to be the policy of the Congress to secure for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness." β€’ β€’ President Johnson signed the Wilderness Act, saying "If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it." β€’ β€’ Even though Congress ultimately came to a consensus, it requires work over time. The bill's author Howard Zahniser went through 65 revisions in nine years full of public hearings and outreach before it finally became law. β€’ β€’ #publicland policy can be #bipartisan . Senators & Representatives want to know what we care about, and the US Capitol Switchboard will connect you to their offices: 202.224.3122. β€οΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’™ β€’ β€’ #nonpartisan #publicland #publiclands #publiclandowner #keepitpublic #publiclandsproud #unitedoutside #optoutside #ourwild #iownit #conservation #colorado #hikecolorado #lostcreek #nationalforest #backcountry #hike #outdoors #runwild #wilderness #getoutstayout #outdoors #earthofficial #hikingculture @senatorcardin @repraskin @chrisvanhollen @keep_it_public @goparks @altusnatparkser @altnatparkser

We got a little lost, and had a little adventure. Along the way we found a campground, dirt road, and a giant iron art structure?
