👆SOON! 💚 Can’t wait to see the canyon again!
Had a great weekend trip to the California Redwoods with friends @jpbauer79 and @trailwandering. This hike along the James Irvine trail took us from the forest to the ocean and was unbelievable. #redwoods #outdoors #californiacoast #california #forest #adventure #rei1440project #usinterior #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #mypark #natgeotravel #earthpix
I wanted to hike to Ice Lake on San Juan National Forest. The trailhead is about 1.5 hour from Durango. The hike is about 7.8 miles RT. After 4 miles we had to turned around because the snow was covering the trail, we were not able to find the lake. Also, we only had 1.25 hour to hike down before sunset as we had to ride 4 miles on unpaved road to the main road. On the way back to our hotel, I saw a deer as it ran out in front of us while we’re on a dark Hwy. I was so shocked all I did was hug on to Kyle while waiting to go down. B/c of that Kyle saw the deer and hit the brake as we missed the deer by only a couple inches. What a hell of a day! . . . #sanjuannationalforest #lowericelake #colorado #idhikethatcrew #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #wanderlust #igtravel #idhikethat #motorcycletrip #motorcycletravel
Wonderful adventures to be had if you haven't been out to the North East. Yesterday evening a group hiked out to Trout and Buck Lake. 📸 Buck Lake. Just remember always practice safe etiquette while hiking & observing wildlife. Please be mindful of the Wildflowers popping up! . . . . . #findyourparadise #protectivestyles #Wyoming #ThatsWY #cloudporn #cloud9 #Beinconvenient
I’m not living the exact life I planned on living when I was five. My life has taken some turns and changes that I didn’t anticipate, and it has brought me to different places and to meet new people, but the most important I’ve learned to appreciate the little things. You have this one life, I recently asked myself this question “how do you want to spend it?”, I’m working on it but all I can tell you is: Do what feels good, Take risks, make yourself proud.

Planning the trip is half the fun. I LOVE MAPS!! #yosimite #adventure #lego #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #getoutside
Another hot hot day...but today we are at Arches National Park. Before the giant crowd of Memorial Day makes it to the Delicate Arch, we quickly went on an evening hike to it, in about 95deg weather. While I felt rather woozy in the heat, once I saw this beautiful piece of work by Mother Nature, all I felt was awed and happy!!! . The Delicate Arch is a 60 ft tall freestanding natural arch and one of the most famous geological features in the world. Its name comes from the fact that is apparently the most delicately chiseled arch in the area.. . . . . . . #archesnationalpark #delicatearch #anps #redrock # #nationalmonument #utah #yesvisitutah #nationalparkgeek #hikeutah #utahisamazing #utahunique #hiking #mountains #womenwhohike #mtnchicks #optoutside #getoutstayout #outdoorwomen #likeamountaingirl #choosemountains #womenwhoexplore #forceofnature #rei #utahisrad #discoverutah #exploreutah #utahgram #hikerbabesorg100 #adventurenthusiasts #gogalavanting
Did some climbing after work.
Joshua Tree Nat’l Park: Boy Scout Backcountry Trail 7.5 Miles Out and Back. This was one of the most magnificent hikes I have ever completed. The air was quiet with only wind, birds chirping and coyotes howling. I crossed paths with many jack rabbits, coyotes and one bobcat. There were lizards scurrying across the desert floor and when the sun set, the stars glistened and I was able to see part of the milk way. This place truly felt wild when I woke up to the howls of coyotes at 4 in the morning. I am so grateful to of had such a magical experience at Joshua Tree National Park! #joshuatreenationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparks #californiahiking #boyscouttrail #desertphotography #backpacking #backpacker #intothewild #hikerslife #hikecalifornia
Got to watch an amazing thunderstorm roll across the badlands this past week. Living next to and working at a National Park allows so many amazing opportunities for photography. #badlandsnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #rangerbrad #storm #thunder #lightning #findyourpark #prairie @badlandsnps @midwestnationalparks
Once a year, explore a place you’ve never been. Hike that trail you’ve always wanted to do. Go on that #onceinalifetime trip you’ve been dreaming of. If you’ve been putting in your time to work hard, remember to play even harder. Once a year, reward yourself with something valuable. It could be a thing, or it could be an experience. Money can’t buy happiness but it sure can take you to places you’ve never been! And that my friends sure make me happy 😊 My trip to GSE with @nomadhikers is the gift to myself this year. It’s only right that I explore this side of the Grand Staircase formation after exploring the Grand Canyon side of it last year during the whitewater rafting trip along the Colorado River.

Some bonds are too fragile to deserve a strong effort. *Sighs*
Go experience it for yourself. You will always look back and smile for the sweet memories you made. ••••• Thanks to our friend Matthew @_matthewflores for sharing and making us a great cup of coffee. ——- even better through your own eyes #thegreateroutdoors ——- #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #nationalpark #olympicnationalpark #olympic #pnw
"Grandeur of it all" Grand Canyon is absolutely amazing. Literally just downloaded all my pictures from my quick trip and had to upload at least a photo for you all. More photos to come. For now I have shower, laundry and hit the sack on my mind. #grandcanyon

The Top of Texas...8,751 ft
Hiked up to see Chimney Top scrambled back down the river and got caught mid thunderstorm. Gotta say it was pretty great.
Cape Royal. North Rim, Grand Canyon. . Думаю, во всем Гранд Каньоне не найти идеальнее места для наблюдения за восходом и закатом солнца, чем Кейп Роял (Cape Royal). Отсюда открывается просто фантастический вид! Величественные скалы загораются в низких лучах солнца огненными оттенками. А вокруг стоит оглушающая липкая тишина. Ни звука. Изредка молчание каньона нарушается гулким грохотом падающих камней. Эхо от их падения возвращает к реальности. Самое время вспомнить о безопасности и сделать шаг назад от края обрыва... .

Weren’t we just hiking in the Rockies yesterday 🏔, trekking through snow ❄️ , making friends with chipmunks 🐿? 😩Those post vacation blues hit reeeeeal hard when we got back from Colorado two days ago. Don’t get me wrong, swoopin’ up my babies and kissin’ them 😘 until they got mad at me was the best feeling ever, but it’s hard to return to normal life after an amazing vacation, ya know? What do you guys do to adjust back to your routine after vacation?

"You must go on adventures to find out where you truly belong." The narrows did not disappoint with those majestic canyon walls, just better not have a flash flood. #ilovewater #friendswhohike #getoutdoors #numblegs #chillymorning #nationalparkgeek
