Where Earth meets Sky
The dust rising up from the gravel road leading to the tigers of the Ranthambore forest, early in the morning, created this erie, suspenseful scene. #india #incredibleindia #rajasthan #ranthambore #asia #nationalparks #wildlifephotography #wildlife #photography #photographer #nikon #travel #travelblogger #traveldiaries #birds #birdphotography
Grand Teton National Park - September 2008 We rented a room right on Jenny Lake with this gorgeous view greeting us every time we opened the door. We took a boat across the lake and hiked up to a gorgeous waterfall. We explored the trails and didn't take nearly enough "good" pictures. One evening we had a picnic at the edge of the lake and a fox tried to come and steal our dinner right off of the picnic table. We watched our oh so little kids hike up their pants and gasp at the shock of cold water and I can still see them there... Their backs to me, disappearing into the fading sunlight, jagged peaks rising above them and that feeling that this was all that mattered in the world. #grandtetonnationalpark #getoutside #traveltogether #beforebiggy #findyourpark #explore #protectourparks #jennylakelodge #hiking #familytravel #familyoffour #nationalparks #nationalparkusa #wyomingcamping #lakeside
No one really likes the cold, I really dont, but one thing that keeps me going, is going out there anyway. I had to stop prioritizing my comfort for once in my life, plus...I'm in Yosemite, why not. __________________________________________________ #astrophotography #universetoday #milkyway  #astrophoto  #astrography  #nightsky  #nightscaper  #starphotography  #starscape  #longexpo_additction ;#udog_sky #landscape_captures #awesomeearth #milkywaychasers  #natgeospace #starrynight  #longexposure #astro_photography_ #ic_longexpo #fs_longexpo #yosemite #halfdome #yosemitenationalpark #nationalparks #natgeo #stars

Keep your face towards the sun and the shadows will soon fall behind it
Sharing this picture to show you how small we are compared to some trees in Sequoia. These are the roots of a dead tree I came across in my hike 🌲 ------------------------------------------------------ #sequoianationalforest #earthpix #shotoniphone #explore #roadtrippers #viewsaddict #roadtrippin #explorer #views #outdoorlife #travel #outdoorphotography #travelphotography #neverstopexploring #choosemountains #earth #Theoutdoors #naturesplayground #latino #forrest #adventure #explore #lake #getoutstayout #optoutside #outdoors #in2nature #naturegram #nationalparks
It was cold, but somehow brilliantly warm! It must have been my excitement and elation of getting to a new spot just in time for sunrise that morning at Dinosaur National Monument. After the Colorado side, shown here, I visited Utah's side of the Monument. 💜 Photo number 7 of a 7 day challenge to revisit and share a photo each day from beautiful and unique NPS sites I have visited. I look forward to doing it again or maybe with a twist. 😉 Show our Parks the love they deserve ! . . . #dinosaurnationalmonument #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #parkroamers #national_park_photography #nationalparklife @nationalparkservice #nationalparkadventurers #nationalmonuments #FindYourPark #earthfocus #earthlandscape #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #lonelyplanet #sunrisephotos #findbeautifulplaces #amazingphotohunter #igersmood #TheGlobeWanderer #WeLiveToExplore #coloradolive #visitcolorado #explorecolorado #coloradotography #coloradoinstagram #igcolorado #naturalcolorado #colorfulcolorado #colorado_creative

I’d spend every day after school and often before school, taking figure skating lessons at the rink. We always lived out in the bush, so we‘d have to wake up early, get the car started to warm it up (it would be plugged in of course), and my mom would drive me 30km into town in the pitch black of the early winter mornings. I remember jamming out to my Soul Decision cassette on the drive in at 4:30 am, easing the tired by thinking about how I’d probably get a french vanilla cappuccino from Tim Horton’s once practise was over. Just the most Canadian. . I definitely don’t strap these old things on very often; even finding time on an indoor rink is hard to come by. So you can imagine how special it was to me to be able to experience the freedom of limitless gliding on this frozen lake, when all of the perfect conditions came together to make it possible. It brings back a lot of special memories (even if I am a little rusty) and to be surrounded in such natural beauty was just the icing on the cake 👌🏼 . Thanks to @braedin for capturing one of my favourite days of the year (and for keeping up... kind of). .

Bridges in bloom 🍂
We tend to watch a lot of documentaries during winter that get us excited for all the activities we can’t do for months. Today was about Yellowstone and had me thinking about baby bears that are likely the cutest things in the world!
It’s been a few years since I was first here at this Amazing National Park! Wish you guys were here to see theses view! #Zion #Utah #nationalparks #adventures
Had and up close and personal view of the #everglades today. One of the biggest #nationalparks and yet hardly anyone there. And also a gratuitous gator pic.
Hi I’m Riley! I enjoy hiking, sleeping in awkward positions, love, and being an all around great guy. @rivkakahn
I like this quote. It's from Blood Lure by Nevada Barr. Anna Pigeon and a mama grizzly bear have spotted one another, and Anna suddenly relaxes at the settling of this realization. I love Anna Pigeon. These books make me want to just run off and dwell in nature for an undetermined length of time. #wonderfulworld #mountains #forests #wildlife #maybenotbearsthough #nevadabarr #annapigeon #nationalparks #nps #bloodlure
Off the grid for 3 days at Joshua Tree was one of the best things for me in a long time. Disconnecting from social media and connecting with real people felt SO good. And to think I’ve known some of these guys for 10 years! What a gift. I will definitely do this again. Mixing old with the new. Who’s in?!
Everyone should experience summer in the Rock Mountains . . . #colorado #rockymountains #hiking #outdoors #sanddunes #mountains #nationalparks #adventure
Being only approximately 3 hours from LA, JT probably is the closest national park to me. Although I wasn't really surprised by the fact that I've never been because I just wrote it off as another hot, barren land (and if you know me, you'll know that I try to avoid places I would probably get migraines from). Thank the universe for winter months, the desert finally got me visiting. And oh boy I sure didn't regret it! I was so overwhelmed by the colors of the high desert and the Joshua trees made me feel like I'm in a Dr. Seuss story book. I never remember to share pictures that I take. Even then these pictures don't even justify the view. So, if you haven't gone, get out there! Let nature change your perspective. (P.S. excuse me while I become a stage mom to Pablo) 🏜🌵 ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️#optoutside #girlandherdog #andventureenthusiasts #landscapephotography #highdesert #nationalparks #americathebeautiful #adventureisoutthere #neverstopexploring #geologyrocks

When the winter gloom starts setting in and summer adventures are calling.
What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. -John Steinbeck

Parque Natural Quininí:  ubicado en Tibacuy posee un maravilloso paisaje, farallones de más de 300 metros de altura, 4.000 hectáreas de bosques nativos, caminos indígenas y peñas con petroglifos entre otros. Recomendaciones para el viajero: El cerro del Quininí, es una reserva forestal, cuya prioridad de uso es para la conservación del medio ambiente, así como del registro arqueológico de las culturas que habitaron el lugar, por lo que el viajero se debe ceñir a los estándares acordes al mismo. Al ser un macizo montañoso de cumbre afilada, recibe los vientos ascendientes de 2 microcuencas (Sumapaz y Tequendama), por lo que presenta una meteorología muy cambiante, lo que quiere decir, que a lo largo del día y la noche, a medida que cambia la temperatura, hay corrientes de viento, cortinas de nubes ascendentes, neblina que puede humedecer todo el paisaje, e incluso cielos totalmente despejados, que permiten la vista de hasta 25 municipios de ambas provincias, así como numerosas formaciones montañosas, ecosistemas y agroecosistemas. Por lo que es importante ir bien preparado para sortear con comodidad todos estos meteoros, de modo que se recomienda el uso de un buen bloqueador solar que no se diluya con el sudor, impermeable, ropa cómoda que permita el movimiento y que no retenga la humedad (tanto ambiental como la producida por el ejercicio). Cuenta con senderos demarcados para realizar caminatas, que cubren el trayecto desde Cumaca hasta el cerro, así como las rutas internas dentro de propiedades privadas. El nivel de la caminata es intermedio, ascendente de ida y descendente de regreso, con algunos sectores de nivel alto por su inclinación y por las características del terreno. Una caminata desde Cumaca puede durar de 4 a 6 horas dependiendo de la habilidad del caminante así como las actividades que realice durante el trayecto. #travel #colombia #cundinamarca #earth #trip #nationalparks #green #nature #naturaleza #parquesmacionales #bosque #montaña #mountain
Por muy corto que sea el camino. Quien pisa fuerte, ¡deja huella!💪✨
Isn’t it funny how every national park seems to have their own color scheme? Mt. Rainier NP was alllll blues and purples and was constantly changing while the sun went down 🌤 || 📌 Mt. Rainier NP
HEY friends 👋 I've created this space to document something that really started when I moved to Denver from Indiana three years ago. I had never really spent time in the mountains, done anything adventurous and I had 0 experience mountaineering. I was your average basic B from the burbs. Moving to Colorado woke up a part of me I really never knew existed. Now you can always catch me obsessively planning my next adventure to a new place, park or trail. So prepare your eyeballs for lots of pictures of my adorable doodle dog & my best attempts at capturing the world around me! Plus everything I learn in the process (I'm still new to this whole outdoorsy life thing) 🤷‍♀️ #optoutside #girlswhohike #girlswhotravel #colorado #colorfulcorado #explore #explorecolorado #themountainsarecalling #hiking #backpacking #girlswhobackpack #nature #doodles #nationalparks #moab #archesnationalpark #adventure
