Summer’s greenery 🙏🌿 Sooo here’s the story on why these photos from August are being posted now, as well as what else is to come.. because I’m sure seeing pictures of Rainer without snow is a lil’ deceiving 😜 Over the summer, I had traveled across the states for 6 months. From living out of a car and road tripping throughout the east, to then flying out west and working on an eco-village/farm in Washington to then working with a conservation crew in Oregon. I would typically use my DSLR to take these photos, and then transfer them to my computer, and finally, onto my phone. It was a process. When I left for the conservation corps for 8 weeks, I left my laptop and camera behind. The fact that I was working and living out in the woods, and didn’t have access to these items meant I couldn’t/wasn’t posting. So alas, here we are.. trying to manage getting through the hundreds of photos from those few months. 😅 Now fast forward to November when the conservation corps had ended and I went back home to Chicago. I worked a job and saved money for about 2 months. Now, I’m back on the road for at least 3 more months! My trip began in Austin, TX for a week, and I’m now currently en route to Portland, OR. I didn’t take my DSLR this time around, but I’ll be making use of my phone and GoPro for future photos. So keep a lookout! Thanks for stickin’ around 😊🙏 Also feel free to check out my personal-ish account: @shieflows for some random other content, I guess, if you want? 🤷‍♀️ • • • • • • #mtrainier #mtrainernationalpark #washingtonstate #pnw #pnwonderland #themountainsarecalling #mountaingirls #mountainbabes #aintsheabeaut #nationalparks #nps #nationalparkservice #snowcapped #mtadams #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #washingtontrails #getoutside #goonanadventure #seekMORE #pnwexplored #wanderwashington #northwestnature
Circa 1916 National Parks Portfolio. Scarce to rare. So timely in the current political environment. #nationalparkservice #resist #green #usedbookstore #rarebooks
"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... • • • #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

🌵is the way to my heart #marfa
[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 “secure” 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

This is me, in my happy place- exploring the #beutahful nature in @zionnps with two adventure buddies @lunaticatlarge & @ckanani 📸 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!
My great grandparents arrived at Ellis Island. I cannot imagine the fear, anxiety, hope and relief they felt as they were processed and about to begin their lives in the United States. . . . . . . . . . . #newyork #nyc #manhatten #instagramnyc #nygram #visitnyc #architecture #architecturephotography #ellisisland #nationalparkservice #nationalpark #findyourpark #loveyourpark #optoutside
On this day in history, Feb. 21st, 1885: The Washington Monument was formally dedicated. John Sherman (R-Ohio) noted that the edifice was “simple in form, admirable in proportions, composed of enduring marble and granite, resting upon foundations broad and deep.” • •• ••• •••• ••••• #washingtondc #washingtonmonument #nationalparkservice #nationalmall #usa #twilight #dclife #dchistory #history #americanhistory #georgewashington #historicalarchitecture #architecture #archidaily #igpowerclub #way2ill #illgrammers #gramslayers #slaythegram #fountain #monument #dcphotographer #districtofcolumbia #splendid_shotz #igersdc #ig_color #cityphotography #americanlife
Value of life isn’t how long we live, but how we live. We can all live long yet very little
Pretty happy with how things are going on this piece 🌲🏔

And spirit can enter a human being perhaps better in the quiet of old age and dwell there more undisturbed than in the turmoil of adventure.

“The Trail is the thing, not the end of the Trail. Travel too fast, and you’ll miss all you are traveling for” 🌵
Last semester, junior Abby Keller, worked with the National Parks Service as part of her Women in Leadership Internship. Abby states that the WIL internship has taught her a lot about working in a National Parks environment, saying about her work with the Phenology Monitoring Program: “I gained skills and experience in researching and writing professionally. It has also shown me how important citizen science can be.". ⠀ .⠀ As someone just starting out in her Natural Resource Career Abby claims the WIL internship provided her with valuable experiences, such as building a federal resume, seeing how the federal job system works and it helped her gain insight into the general aspects of the National Parks Service. ⠀ .⠀ Abby also says that one of the most rewarding aspects of the WIL internship was being able to interview women leaders within APIS, who shared with her their experience as a woman in a typically male-dominated field. ⠀ ⠀ #apostleislands #nationalparkservice #naturalresources #womeninleadership #womeninscience #WIL #internship #northlandcollege #northlandcollegeinternship #apostleislandsnationallakeshore

Peak #CherryBlossom bloom date guesses, anyone? . The #NationalParkService won't start guessing until March 1, but this warm weather just might move the date up a few days. The average peak bloom date for the #DCTidalBasin trees is in late March or early April. Earliest ever: March 15 in 1990. #AlexandriaVA #WashingtonDCcherryblossoms #cherryblossoms
This early morning sunrise drive into Big Bend National Park was magical. And that's just how dirty your windows get on a cross country road trip🤷🏼‍♀️
In honor of Ansel Adams’ birthday yesterday. Thankful for the spotlight he brought to The Sierras.
Summer??? Is that you??? ☀️ ============================== This weather is bizarre.

I felt like this was particularly relevant as I noticed all the trash on the side of the highway on my way to work this morning. I can remember as a kid my dad always made us bring an extra trash bag on hikes, and we had to fill it before we finished our hike out. Let’s be respectful to our environment everybody. We only get one! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ =============================== #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #nps #goparks #americasbestidea   #outdoorwomen #adventureisoutthere #adventure #exploremore #explorer #exploreamerica #womenwhoexplore #travelblogger #girlswhotravel   #girlsthatwander   #passionpassport #sheisnotlost #beautifuldestinations #lovetotravel #wanderlust #outdoors #optoutside #nature #naturelovers #tuzigoot #environment #littercleanup #wnpa1938 #protectourplanet

Back in the 1960s Elliott Key was slated for development. Since all other Florida Keys had been carpeted with hotels, restaurants, and neighborhoods, the developers ran into opposition by conservationists and local residents who wanted to see the area remain natural. The name “Spite” derives from the fact that the developers cut a six-lane highway right down the middle of the island in an attempt to destroy any of the natural appeal that it might have—to spite the conservationists. However, this did not stop the by-now popular anti-development movement and in 1968 Biscayne National Monument was created and plans for any further development came to an end.⠀ ⠀ The National Park Service bills the Spite Highway Trail as the only true hiking trail in Biscayne National Park, with the other four being nothing more than short nature walks. The trail is no longer six lanes wide, but a one-lane wide swathe through the forest still runs right down the middle of Elliott Key.

With Dry Tortugas National Park in a location that is not easily accessible, the National Park Service has a house on site for their park rangers. According to one of the rangers that we spoke with, they spend 10 days on the island, and 10 days back on Key West. Rangers assigned to Dry Tortugas are also stationed at the Dr Nancy Foster Florida Keys Environmental Complex on Key West. #WheresBuddyBisonBeen #BuddyBison #BuddyBisonAdventures #OurBuddyBison #BuddyBisonsofInstagram #USDepartmentOfTheInterior #usinterior #FindYourPark #DryTortugasNationalPark #DryTortugasNPS #FortJefferson #NationalParkService
🐾🐸🏝🗻Sooner or later, you start taking yourself seriously. You know when you need a break. You know when you need a rest. You know what to get worked up about and what to get rid of. And you know when it's time to take care of yourself, for yourself. To do something that makes you stronger, faster, more complete. Because you know it's never too late to have a life. And never too late to change one.

We spent today on Mount Rainier. I have quite run out of adjectives. . . . . . #mtranier #mtraniernationalpark #washingtonstate #gapyear #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
Cloudy views of Mount St. Helens today from the observation area. Astounding nontheless. The visitor center there has amazing videos, pictures, and survivor stories. Interesting to see where reforestation ends and natural recovery begins. . . . . . #mtsthelens #mtsthelensnationalvolcanicmonument #volcano #oregon #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
We spent a second day climbing bluffs, viewing petroglyphs and exploring caves at Lava Beds. Here Greg is about to descend into Skull Cave. Not as scary as it sounds. . . . . . #lavabedsnationalmonument #lavabeds #petroglyph #skullcave #cave #california #gapyear #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
Spectacularly beautiful! Every new viewpoint as or more gorgeous than the last. And there was snow. So. Much. Snow. The east side of the park is still closed, as well as all but two trails while they deal with the removal of winter's 48 feet of snow. . . . . . #craterlake #craterlakenationalpark #snow #oregon #gapyear #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
Today we visited Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge, clamored over rocks to see pictographs, scrambled through caves, and peered into lava chimneys. Lava Beds is harshly beautiful with jagged formations at every turn and the caves are refreshingly cool on a hot day. . . . . . #tulelake #lavabeds #lavabedsnationalmonument #pictographs #gapyear #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
Travel day. Here's our last view of Mount Shasta as we leave. . . . . . #mtshasta #california #travelday #gapyear #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
Second day of fleeing Redding's heat. Couldn't make it all the way though the park as the area is still socked in with snow! They hope to have all the roads clear by mid July. Greg found this patch of snow in the Fantastic Lava Beds on the hike to the Painted Dunes. The park is terrifyingly beautiful in that the volcanos' devastation is still all around you. And yet, there are plants, flowers, and trees, growing and thriving amid the rocks, boulders, and cinder. . . . . . #lassenvolcanicnationalpark #snow #california #gapyear #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
We fled the heat of Redding, 109 degrees, to Mount Shasta for an epic snowball battle. . . . . . #mtshasta #snow #California #gapyear #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
Shhhhh... If you follow the left path through the cavern from Lower Scorpian campground there is another cliff dwelling in the the Gila National Forest. Take the path to the right and you will find striking pictographs on the high wall as well. Don't let anyone know I told you... . . . . . #gilacliffdwellings #newmexico #nationalmonument #gapyear #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
Toured the east side of Big Bend National Park today. The walk down to Hot Springs was just stunning! . . . . . #bigbendnationalpark #bigbend #gapyear #texas #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice
