I met Maddie 8 (!) years ago studying abroad for a semester and when I went home I didn’t think I’d see her again. Since then, we’ve been all over the Southwestern US, seen each other’s homes in LA and MI and missed an international flight and been stranded in South America together.

Water hikes. Take 'em or leave 'em❔ . We vote take 'em❗ . Do you have a favorite water hike ❔ . Tip: I am often asked what kinds of shoes to wear on a water hike. I love hiking in a canyoneering shoe as they drain and grip well. Any shoe that gives you support and can drain well (think mesh upper).〰️ . . . #waterhike #hikersdelight #hikevibes #beutahful #beautifulmorning #simplyutah #utahisbeautiful #hikerlife #hikersofinstagram #outdoorkids #outdoorfamily #redrock #slotcanyons #virginriver #southernutah #capitalreef #adventureawaits #adventurefamily #findyouradventure #gooseneck #thatview #thatviewtho #takethekids #travel #nationalparkgeek #nationalparks #traveltips #offthebeatenpath
“Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” - Hans Christian Anderson —— Another panorama from Bruce Peninsula National Park (swipe to see the whole image). The waters are so unbelievably clear and peaceful. When away from the crowds of the main attractions the areas beauty truly shines. . . . . . . . . . . #brucepeninsulanationalpark #brucetrail #hikingadventures #canadaisbeautiful #nationalparks #parkscanada #adventurephotography #adventurelife #adventuretime #backpacking #wilderness #naturetherapy #lovenature #photooftheday

Taking a little time away to explore Colorado’s amazing #nationalparks . Mesa Verde was amazing, especially the ranger-led tours. #mesaverdenationalpark
Another Acadia sunrise. The views of MDI are quite abundant and I jump over the opportunity to shoot during the golden hour. I’ve had lots of opportunity’s to do so within the last couple of weeks paddling in the area. 📍Eastern Mark island, Maine Cost Heritage Trust.
As many of you know, I am the worst at real time life updates. I struggle with keeping everyone updated versus being in the moment. Throughout the past week myself and 4 friends embarked on a journey that lead us up volcanic mountains, down coastlines and through rainforests. Over the course of the next few days I will post about our individual and collective experiences. Thank you all for your well wishes, interest and pacience. . . This set of photos was taken at our cabin just outside of Rainier National Park, the night before we began our ascent! My pack 50L Black Diamond Mission pack weighed in at 36lbs! Nearly 1/3 of my body weight. Between all 5 of us we had 19, yes 19 bags for this week!! Thousands of dollars in gear, preparation and yes...bags inside bags inside bags! Packing for this week alone was the biggest undertaking! . . #tripofalifetime #gearjunkie #blackdiamond #Mission50 #mountaineer #mountaineering #pack #rei #reithrewup #gearexplosion #adventure #mt .rainier #nationalparks #findyourpark @mtrainierwatch @mountrainiernps @mountaingirls @mtnchicks #womenwhomountaineer @womenwhoexplore @womenwhohike @shethinx @rachelrage23 @skibeerdenver
To everything I’ve ever lost: thank you for setting me free. ✨ #liveBANGS #bangsambassador photo credit goes to my love.
Hiking the Narrows at Zion National Park is an adventure unlike any other, and it’s also a physical challenge rated strenuous by the National Park Service: you’re hiking IN the Virgin River, using your core and stabilizing muscles to stay steady as you find your footing in the flowing current.

It was a personal goal to match my dad and hit all 50 states at the age of thirty and with this trip to Alaska I have finally done that. #50states #all50states #usa #nationalparks #getoutside #glacier #mendenhallglacier #alaska #juneau #fjord
Our national park partners in Hawaiʻi and American Samoa are ALL ABOUT family fun in the summers. Of course, some people feel it is summer in Hawaiʻi all of the time. :) However you want to argue that point, there is no doubt that time spent in national parks with your kids is some of the best time you can spend. So we hope to see you soon!⠀ #nationalparks #summerfun #kidsinparks #HawaiiParks nativeknowledge #learn #grow #GoOutside #beinspired #connect #preserve #Haleakalā #twins #Maui #partnership #FindYourAdventure#FindYourSummer#FamilySummerFun#HikeYourPark#ParksInFocus#SummerInTheParks#FamilySummerVacation

The beautiful and tough scarlet globemallow, or cowboy's delight! • Its silvery hairs and deep roots help make it drought tolerant by reflecting the hot sunlight away from its leaf surfaces and reaching moisture far underground. These deep roots also help stabilize the soil in disturbed sites. • Grazed upon by herbivores, and had use by indigenous peoples as a poultice for burns and wounds. A treat to come upon. • Scientific name = Sphaeralcea coccinea. Sphaeralcea : spherical : globemallows have round fruits; coccinea : scarlet : scarlet petals. #plants #plantid #botany #naturalist #wildflowers #plantsofcolorado #sanlouisvalley #colorado #globemallow #nationalparks #desertplants #mallow #staycurious #optoutside #explore #herbology #ethnobotany #herbalism #permaculture #nativeplants

America’s best assets are her #nationalparks 🏕🏜 #brycecanyon is a quick must visit only a few hours from #lasvegas !
Our friends over at @feralmountainco opened their Idaho Springs location and it is a marvel! If you haven’t already visited Feral, you can check them out on the way to all your favorite outdoor activities. They also have a location on Tennyson street in Denver! Nice work, guys. . Snag one of our prints while you’re at it! They always have a supply of the 14er, National Parks, and Seven Summits!
So Paige tossed this idea at me that I should start spewing random facts as my captions because 1. Knowledge is power 2. Everyone loves science 3. If you don’t love science then you should probably unfollow me. SO HERE WE GO (we will start with a basic one) • Water can boil and freeze at the same time. (Triple point) • Also, I hope your smile is as big as mine because y’all just learned something new and if you already knew that well tell me some cool shit • • • • #girlpower #adventure #exploremore #roadtrip #headedwest #utah #girltrip #getoutside #stayoutside #moodygrams #behappy #waterfalls #campeveryday #hiking #wilderness #mineralsprings #yellowstone #getlost #landscape #nationalparks #unitedstates #Montana #bozeman #tentlife #REI #scienceisfun

I took a hiatus from hiking this weekend to take naps 😴, eat all the chips 🥔, didn't leave my house and caught up on one of my new favorite shows 📺..The Handmaid's Tale! Sometimes it's okay to be okay with having a super unproductive weekend to catch up on random luxuries we take for granted like watching a good show to take you into a fictitious place! But if you haven't seen it it's a mind rollercoaster! So good!! 🤯 ____________________________________________ Do you have any recommendations for new shows?? I haven't watched GOT yet because I can't handle the waiting! I'll binge watch it when the series is 100% complete! 🤐 _____________________________________________ . . . #mtnchicks #forceofnature #peoplewhoadventure #amongthewild #sheadventures #peoplewhohike #ourcamplife #sheexplores #choosemountains #womenwhoexplore #findyourpark #wildernessbabes #womenwhohike #werehikers #rei1440project #mountaingirls #staywild #wearethewild #alpinebabes #nationalparks #awakethesoul #radgirlslife #liveyouradventure #hikeaz #andshesdopetoo #themountainsarecalling #girlswhohike #explorearizona #outdoorwomen #womeninthewild
This badass adventurer will officially be family in less than two weeks 😬.
My parents say it’s the hubris of youth to believe that life is binary (obviously, they also like to use words I have to Google). But I think that the greatest thing about youth is that you get to be as hubris-y as you want. You get to say things like “either you’re a defender or you’re a destroyer.” There is no room for gray on this issue. We are called to be guardians of sacred places, and now, more than ever, we have to plant our feet, stand our ground and defend. Sometimes life only gives you one chance. I think this is ours. This is our one chance to defend our beautiful #nationalparks and #wildernesses that give so much to so many of us. There are a multitude of reasons why people choose to pick up a paddle — or throw on a pack — and head into the wilderness. Sometimes we don’t even know beforehand exactly why we do. But universally, we come out changed, and changed for the better. So, that’s my wish: to permanently protect the #BoundaryWaters . Read more on the blog.

Spider Under The Stars | Eagle Lake | Acadia National Park. This is sort of an experimental image. I was looking for compositions with trees framing the Milky Way when I came across this spider sitting in its web. I decided to see how it would look with out of focus stars in the background, so I experimented with different light sources and angles, eventually ending up using my flash focused through a toilet paper tube to avoid blowing out any vegetation. There was a little breeze that drive me crazy trying to focus, but eventually I managed to get a sharp picture without any blown highlights. . . #acadianationalpark #acadia #acadianps #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #thenationalparkspass #nationalparklife #findyourpark #usparksandmonuments #np10k #mainecoast #maine_igers #exploremaine #maineisgorgeous #capturemaine #mainething #igerslandscapes #longexposurev #long_exposure #longexposure_shots #longexposurephotography #longexpo_addiction  #milkyway #milkywaychasers #nights_dreamworld #nightphotography_exclusive #astrophotography
Cryptogamic Soils (Moab, Utah) | This beautiful and unique landscape may look hardened and desolate, but what life does cling here is so very important to the preservation of the ecological systems at play here. I can’t stress the importance of staying on the designated trails! We need to preserve the fragile cryptogamic soils to keep this place as magical and strange as it is now. Cryptogamic soils are a complex of lichens, algae, moss and fungus that occurs as a black coating on the ground surface and as small mounds where it is well developed. It plays an extremely important role in the desert ecology. It binds the soil together and inhibits wind erosion and erosion by sheet wash. It absorbs moisture and converts atmospheric nitrogen into a form that can be used by higher plants. However this cryptogamic soil is so fragile that light grazing or even a single footstep can destroy tens of years of growth. One of the reasons why it is so well developed in this region is due to the lack of past grazing. Learning the balance between enjoying national parks and keeping them healthy is easy, listen to the rangers who make this their life’s work! :) . . . . #moab #cryptogamic #archesnationalpark #moabutah #professorcreek #coloradoriver #wildutah #soilhealth #respectnature #naturelovers #geology #naturescapes #nps #nationalparks #discoverutah #conservation #landscapephotography Information found on the National Parks’ GEOLOGY OF MOAB REGION PDF.
Restoring the frame of the camper has been a chore. Here is a quick peek at the newly restored rear bumper. I scraped, sanded, treated, scrubbed, sprayed, and then finally I painted the rear bumper with this hammered metal paint. What an improvement!!

The only time I’m okay with gaining 30 pounds over the weekend is when it involves going on a backpacking adventure. 😂
