Watchman is by far the most beautiful campground I’ve ever stayed in. Epic sunrises and sets in the valley; deer traipsing around constantly. This was the maiden voyage for our new @bigagnes_ tent and she was absolutely perfect. The included tent lights were just a bonus. (Copper Spur HV UL2 mtnGLO, tell all your friends!) ⛺️
I am so excited! 7 years ago, I was in school and got to travel to incredible places, one of them being Big Bend National Park. At the time, I didn't fully appreciate the landscape. It was dry, there were no large trees, and the mountains didn't compare to those of the north west. • But this week, Brian and I get go experience this park together along with friends. One of them was even on that trip with me 7 years ago. • I'm so excited to spend time with friends over the holidays, explore this incredible park, and appreciate this incredible piece of preserved land. • Happy Thanksgiving! • • • • • #bigbend #nationalpark #texas #thanksgiving #nationalgeographic #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #nationalparkphotography #npsocial #travel #travelphotography #explore #exploremore #national_park_photography #adventurenthusiasts #optoutside #amongthewild #findyourpark #earthpix #radparks #madewild #ourpark #weareparks #enjoyyourworld #view #beautifulview #nb_nature_brilliance #naturaltexas

One of what feels like a million waterfalls in Olympic National Park, WA.
She feels the most alive in nature. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When silence allows the mind to freely think. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And landscapes provide the ultimate place to dream. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Without a care in the world or stress to feel and the only thing to wonder is which path should she take next. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She feels the most alive in nature, that’s where she desires to be.

What’s the bluest sky you’ve ever seen? . A few months ago, Tiff and I spent some time in southern Utah, including Zion National Park. As a native of Wyoming, I was pretty sure I would never find a place with bluer skies than my home state. That being said, Utah comes pretty close. . Since I’m color blind, I don’t quite see the world the same as everyone else. “How can you see blue in the sky if you’re color blind?” you might be asking. I’m sure that whatever I see isn’t as vibrant as what others see. But even I can tell that southern Utah is quite unique.

Anyone else snap a pic when they see something they love and then recreate it to make it their own? I do often. Some may argue that I’m not being original but I disagree. I’m being inspired and as result, propelled into my own creative process. An artist or photographer sees a beautiful mountain and then paints or photographs it-in a way no one else has ever done before. When entering my home, you’ll find all sorts of unique creations everywhere you look, many of which were exist now because of something I saw and fell in love with. 🎨 It’s said that “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” and while it’s perfectly normal and human to emulate someone or something, it’s even more important to be uniquely you. We are all different, flawed and beautiful and it’s important that we remember that every single one of us, even our heroes, has struggles and challenges. ✨ Thanks to insta, I’ve found many interesting folks over the last few weeks and have been particularly intrigued by @emilyventures. Like me, she travels solo, hopes to visit every national park in the country, and is a teacher. (She also takes some great photos and writes with both a wisdom and sincerity I really enjoy.) 📝 But there’s one really awesome thing Emily has that I don’t: a funky daypack adorned with patches and pins from her travels. So after hemming and hawing for a few weeks, this minimalist finally caved and ordered some goodies to adorn my own pack with! 🎒 I’ve only made it to 28 U.S. parks so far (while homegirl has been to 44!!) but life isn’t a contest. Do you. Journey at your own pace. Live in a mansion or in a van. Get excited that you own a Gucci belt or a $3 super cozy thrift-store flannel. But know that it’s fine to admire aspects of another person’s life. It’s a good way of figuring out what excites you and makes you happy. Just be sure to pave your own (grassy, pebbly, muddy, rocky, sandy) path along the way. 👣
The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. The view from the upper falls is usually just jammed packed full of people, but if you sneak out there before sunrise you might not even find a single person. Pure bliss 👌 . ISO 100 | f11 | 25 | 14mm

Yellowstone is the only place in the United States where bison (Bison bison) have lived continuously since prehistoric times. Yellowstone bison are exceptional because they comprise the nation’s largest bison population on public land and are among the few bison herds that have not been hybridized through interbreeding with cattle. Unlike most other herds, this population has thousands of individuals that are allowed to roam relatively freely over the expansive landscape of Yellowstone National Park and some nearby areas of Montana.

Yosemite National Park-California This place is breathtaking and amazing! I can’t help but think of John Muir’s stories as he lived in the wilderness of Yosemite before it was ever federally protected. “I know that our bodies were made to thrive only in pure air, and the scenes in which pure air is found” -John Muir #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #california #johnmuir #elcapitan #meadow #travel #traveling #travelphotography #rvlife #rvliving #rvlivingfulltime #travelholic #gypsy #nationalparkservice #iusedtobecool #imisstraveling #hiking #thisismyreligion
Giving a presentation to one of my classes today about the importance of the Great Smokies. Not only are they beautiful, these mountains protect an abundance of life. Over 19,000 species of animals, plants, fungi, other organisms. Oh yeah, and US! What a great place this is, y’all. Headed to Washington D.C. after class for 🦃 day. Oh, you bet I’m bringing my camera. • • #neverstopexploring #eastcoastcreatives #visualart #southernstatesco #scenicnc #amongthewild #wildernessculture #wilderness #blueridgemountains #ashevilletrails #atlantatrails #explorecarolina #scenicnc #scenicstates #folkscenery #findyourpark #onlyinnorthcarolina #discover_carolinas #nationalparkgeek #wnc #nationalgeographic #nationalparkservice #canonphotography #canonusa #iamatraveler #lovencsmokies #carolinacollectives

I guess porcupines are for some people what manatees are for me...no big deal, see them all the time kinda of critters...but I’ll still go on about how cool they are! This one at Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve was just out nibbling in the middle of the trail, not concerned at all that we were right there watching it. We gave him his space and didn’t rush him, and it was just really cool to watch and learn from him...or her. Not sure which...#nationalpark #nationalparks #findyourpark #nationalparkobsessed #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #ibrakeforbrownsigns #nationalparkservice #national_park_photography #usparksandmonuments #protectingparks #rangeroutdoors #nationalparksusa #MyNationalParks #glacierbay #glacierbaynationalparkandpreserve #glacierbaynationalpark #glacierbaynp #alaska #porcupine
