WINE WEDNESDAY: I normally never, ever post about a product.. but sometimes you just find something that fits your personality so well. Wine + the outdoors = my life 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷 I found this bottle at the Naked Winery tasting room in Bend, Oregon several weeks ago and have been re-using it every weekend since. The first thing that caught my eye was the National Park logo that was on the bottle. I LOVE OUR NATIONAL PARKS so naturally that’s all I needed to see to want it. At closer look though I noticed the bottle was BPA-free, shatterproof, resuable, and recyclable. Plastic is not the perfect solution, but when you can reuse the same bottle over and over again without having to bring glass or cans into nature, I’d say it’s a win! These bad boys use 77% less water, and omits less gasses and air pollution than the normal glass bottle production. PLUS the bottles have an oxygen barrier technology that makes the wine stay fresh and is 1/6 the weight of a glass wine bottle, making this perfect for every outdoor activity. I’ve had it less than a month and I’ve already used it snowboarding, car camping, snowshoeing and hiking!
We made it to the fifth park, and when we read about people's experiences doing the Mighty 5, the line that resonated with us was "we have worn out our wow." Arches National Park was like nothing we have ever seen, the arches and rock formations were stunning, even on a cloudy day. The landscape arch is the longest in the world around 290ft! The windows, the double arches, it's incredible that these structures exist! We feel so lucky to have seen them. We loved Moab and will be back to keep exploring. . . #arches #archesnationalpark #nationalpark #findyourpark #utah #seekmorewilderness #adventure #wowutah #visitutah #hiking #nature #outdoors #rvlife #hollythewonderdog #usa #explore #roadtrekliving #utahisrad #optoutside #ilovemydog #campingwithdogs #welivetoexplore #nationalparkgeek #doyoutravel #travel #vanlife #vanlifers #simpleliving #thisisvanlifeing #lifeelevated
This juvenile American alligator is enjoying the sun we've been having. American alligators are one of only two species of alligator in the world! The other species is the Chinese alligator, which is critically endangered. Lucky for us, American alligators are doing incredibly well and are thriving here in the Southeastern US. They're a keystones species plus they're really cute!! 😍🐊 #alligator #americanalligator #okefenokee #okefenokeenwr #nationalwildliferefuge #georgia #nationalparkgeek #nps #supportourpubliclands #thisismyga #coastalliving #islandlife #georgiacoast #exploregeorgia #travelgeorgia #naturalgeorgia #mygeorgia #mygeorgiapeach #georgiacreatives #southernliving #femalenaturephotographycom #wildlifephotography #takemoreadventures #amongthewild #adventureculture #wildernessculture #optoutside #getoutstayout #lovethelifeyoulive
"Hold fast, all storms pass." I just kept reminding myself of this as we started our trek deep into the backcountry of Yellowstone through 4 feet of fresh, unbroken snow, in the dead of winter, while watching this massive storm creeping over the mountains... β€’ β€’ β€’ #sonyalpha #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonepledge #backcountry #goatworthy #unrulydreamers #msrgear #accesstheinaccessible #rei1440project #findyourpark #spreadstoke #optoutside #patagonia #livelifeproof #getoutstayout #gopro #findyourpark #gooutside #staywild #radtravel #neverstopexploring #thenorthface #livebravely #neature #snowshoeing #snowshoe #goparks #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice @sonyalpha @yellowstonenps @nationalparkservice @goparks @nationalparkgeek
Human for size comparison.
I just posted my first ever meme on the UW meme page 😬 β–ͺ #vhmadison
One month ago, I found myself back in the Grand Canyon for one night. There wasn’t time to run the Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim (I’ll be back for it some day), but I at least got to dip a few thousand feet into the Canyon at sunrise. This place is still the most incredible place I’ve ever been to. #grandcanyon #wookierunsamerica
Last weeks overnight hammock camping trip was chilly but relaxing. A much needed night in the woods😊

I don’t know about you guys, but Spring is in full swing over here! Our poor cherry blossoms bloomed way too early due to a weird warm front, and now my nose it running EVERYWHERE. Thankfully I’ve got the diffuser ROLLIN’. You can catch me diffusing Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint to ensure I don’t need to carry around a box of tissues with me! πŸŒΈπŸ™ŒπŸ»
Nothing brings me more happiness than the constant pursuit of adventure, especially when @iamsunbun can join me on my travels. I know it’s stressful on her not to have a warm bed to sleep in or a couch to curl up on, but the experiences we get to share, the people we meet and the food we eat along the journey remind me that our marriage has been the most exciting adventure so far. ================================= ⌁ Location: Yosemite National Park, CA ⌁ Camera: @canonusa Canon 5D Mark IV ⌁ Lens: @canonusa 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM ⌁ Filter: @hoyafilterusa Polarizer ⌁ Tripod: @slikusa 634 CFL ⌁ f/11 ⌁ 1/40 seconds ⌁ ISO 100 ================================= #hoyatough #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #ig_color #YourShotPhotographer #ig_shotz_le #shotzdelight #yosemitenps #supreme_nightshots #canonphotos #adventurebeckons #neverstopexploring #watchthisinstagood #visualambassadors #shotzdelight #nightphotography_exclusive #beautifuldestinations #eclectic_shotz #moodygrams #agameoftones #visitcalifornia #hubs_united #theimaged #fatalframes @yosemitenps #yosemite #Firefall #landscapephotomag #nationalparkgeek
[YOUR PATH] . - The path you are on is probably not the one you want for yourself.. what do you enjoy and what are the things that set your soul on fire? The things that make you obsess over them for countless hours. The things you do for free just for fun. . - Now take some of those actions and imagine making a living with them. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy just a modest income. Does it make you feel good? Does it make you excited? . - In this day and age you can make money doing just about anything online. Doing affiliate marketing, blogging, setting up online courses, selling a service. Or even going as big as selling a product. You can be doing any of these as a side hustle if it makes you uncomfortable giving up your β€œsecure” job. . - You won’t fail because it is something you love and you will continue to do it regardless because you were already doing it for fun in the first place. It’s a path that isn’t for the faint at heart. A road that take hard work and faith in a positive outcome even when things seem useless. I haven’t achieved this yet but there are many testimonies out there for me to know it’s WORTH it. . - STEP 1: follow @garyvee and @andyfrisella . 1 STEP 2: PERFECT YOUR CRAFT . - STEP 3: EXECUTE ON WHAT YOU LOVE ❀️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #zionnationalpark #nps #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #nationalparksusa #utahunique #utahphotographer #youtah #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #ig_northamerica #thegreatsouthwest #visitutah #iloveutah #wowutah #igutah #utahisrad #utahelevated #beautahful #angelslanding #roadtrip #travelmore #travel #travelcouple #summit #hikingculture #findyourtrail
There's a common theme in my life with water: frozen RV pipes, leaky house pipes, and of course waterfall Wednesday....
You should know that baby you’re the best, even more than you know.
Another insane view found after a short hike in Arches National Park.
This is me, in my happy place- exploring the #beutahful nature in @zionnps with two adventure buddies @lunaticatlarge & @ckanani πŸ“Έ by @lunaticatlarge * * Our team at @travelmindset has partnered with @atozion many times, bringing people from around the country to #VisitStGeorge and #ZionNationalPark to see for themselves the undeniable beauty and adventure that southern Utah has around every corner. The nature is raw- you can climb on and over huge rocks and mountains, in between slot canyons and through a rushing river. Each year, I get to watch as people who have never experienced its beauty are awe struck and humbled by nature. If you’ve never been to this area, I highly suggest flipping through the #InstameetStGeorge tag and seeing just some of the awesome adventures. If you need help planning your own trip, DM me, it’s one of my favorite places in the country and truly must be experienced for yourself. * * My shirt is from @parksproject and says National Parks are for Lovers. I’m obsessed with any brand that encourages us to get out and explore and I highly suggest National Park fans to follow them for daily inspiration. Explore on, friends!

Value of life isn’t how long we live, but how we live. We can all live long yet very little
I shot these star trails in Death Valley National Park during November at the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. I used 20 images to create the star trails and then took a single image of myself on top of the sand dune looking out at the night sky. ---------- Shot Info @nikonusa D610 @tamronusa 15-30mm @mefototripods Aluminum Roadtrip Travel Tripod Twenty images for Star Trails:F/2.8|S:20.0|ISO:3200 Single image for foreground: F/2.8|S:20.0|ISO:3200 Edited in LR & PS ----------
I had the trail up to this waterfall to myself. After arriving at the trailhead at the same time as another group, I delayed my start to let them get far enough ahead that I could enjoy the quiet of the trail. At one point I even heard the crow flying overhead flapping its wings. Of course after hanging out at the falls for a little while, more people arrived. Even with that I don’t think I saw more than 20 people at the falls or on my hike back down. The story of these falls is interesting. It seems they were lost to public knowledge for about 40 years and rediscovered in 2004. #waterfallwednesday , #whiskeytownfalls , #whiskeytownnationalrecreationarea ,#nps , #beautifulwhiskeytown , #whiskeytownnra , #nationalparkgeek , #nationalparkphotography , #findyourpark , #goparks , #optoutside , #nikond3300 ,

When was the last time you moved a refrigerator sized block of snow? The life of the winterkeeper often involves sawing and skidding large blocks of snow off the roof. #winterkeeperwednesday πŸ“·: @therub66 and @michaelhilbert

You won’t find just lava and rocks at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park ! If you hike this old Lava Tube you will get to explore the lush rainforest around it ! #lavatube #hawaiivolcanoesnationalpark #optoutside
Yosemite is incredibly picture perfect! 🏞
"Earth has no sorrow that earth can not heal.” #johnmuir . I never get tired seeing these giants even though I've been here more than a dozen times bringing friends and family. . About 5 years ago, was my first visit to this place. I was trying to heal and healing is what I got. πŸ’›πŸŒ² . . . . #hikingadventures #hiking #takeahike #optoutside #neverstopexploring #womenwhohike #todsl #52hikechallenge #adventureseries #wlolife #herwanderfullife #findyourselfoutside #werehikers #unlikelyhiker #staywild #peoplewhohike #modernhiker #wanderlust #betherad #forceofnature #rei1440project #mtnchicks #winter #travel #trailtuesday #theoutdoors #nationalparkgeek #sequioanationalpark #trees
The "Immortal" tree. This tree is one of the oldest and tallest in the redwood forest. Originally it stood a dizzying 298 ft, but a bolt of lightning removed 50 feet from the top. Still, its huge! The trunk alone for this bad boy is 15 feet in diameter. The axe on the trunk is a marker from 1908 when some loggers thought they could harvest the 104,000ish boards of wood from it for houses. Thankfully they gave up and the tree burled to save itself. The teeny little fish up by the top left is another marker showing how high water rose during a flood back in 1964. The axe alone is about 12 feet off the ground. I loved it here..i'll admit I gave this big guy a hug. πŸ’šπŸ˜ŠπŸž #californiaredwoods #redwoods #immortaltree #history #landmark #nationalparkgeek #treehugger #lightning #california #travelmore
