Unbearably home sick 🤒. You know what I hate in the city im satying ? (Pyatigorsk) - that everything closes so early like at about 8 pm with the exception of restaurants... and it feels like the city is forcing u to sleep at 9 pm or something 🙃
I did a total double take when I saw these ferns and tropical like plants near the Stow Lake Boathouse. I love color and it’s also fun to add something alike but a tad different to my photo feed. • • Here’s something you can help me with. I’m planning a photoshoot for I Heart Moss. Would the models be wearing hiking kinda clothes or bohemian kinda outfits? Want to know how you’d dress the models to show off our jewelry and the wristlet purses.
Plateau trail is always a peaceful and beautiful sight. #nikon #naturephotography #nature #findyourpark #naturegeek #cvnp #ohio

• FILL THE BUCKET, FILL THE BUCKET • One night I dreamt I was in a farm and a storm had broken the branches of the pines all around and the field was flooded. A female voice kept on ordering me to give the animals some water, I didn't understand why I should have had to fill the buckets to let them drink since there was water everywhere. But the voice was so menacing that I decided to do it anyway, and I started looking for the bucket which was stuck under the very dark liquid surface with my hand, paying attention not to completely fall into the water myself. I couldn't feel the usual sensation of the water on my skin, but the one of several tiny animals were trying to eat my epithelial cells. Then I woke up and my hands were very cold. #mothsandcloudsart
Goat Farm Akron-Peninsula Rd Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 1/16/18 Spent a sweet lunch break with some great goats yesterday. In the frigid temperatures, my heart was warmed by their precious presence.

Of winding roads and serene waters... What a week! From discussing what rewilding means at a conference in Wales to attending an advisors meeting on how to restore the High Weald landscape closer to home, focussing on natural flood management! New strapline for conservation efforts in the UK should be #bemorebeaver :-) Cannot wait until these guys are commonplace once more in our countryside #rewilding #ecosystemrestoration #wild

I recently began a Buddhist meditation class. One of the hard parts of being Michael is that my brain is a constant churn of thoughts and worries. It constantly demands new and exciting stimulation or distraction from boredom or unpleasantness. This makes being present very hard, especially on a Tuesday that feels like a Monday. I am hoping meditation can help me become less beholden to every thought. An analogy I learned is that of the waterfall, which represents all the mental and physical phenomena I experience. My brain's constant need to label, categorize, and moralize every sight, sound, touch, taste, smell, thought, emotion, etc. is the water that tumbles heedless over the cataract.  Normally we are "in the stream" falling over the falls with our thoughts and emotions. The goal of vipassana is to stand underneath and behind the waterfall, watching the stream of phenomena from a detached viewpoint. I am not there yet, but look forward to the journey. So back to the grind with me. Meanwhile, let's all take a deep breath or two! #meditation #vipassana #yosemitenps #yosemite #nps #usinterior #bestmountainartists #outbound #naturegeek #mountainman #adventure #hikingadventures #wildernessculture #choosemountains #naturephotography #naturelovers #findyourpark #mypubliclands #optoutside #landscapephotography #pictureoftheday #photooftheday #instatravel #instagay #gaygeek #sharetodaysadventure #mothernature #picoftheday #bestnatureshot #rei1440project
It is incredible how these are always the same woods but they are always different!
Of being small and dark
Wintry Twilight at Hale Farm Bath, Ohio 1/14/18 Soft snow, tall pines, and rustic cabins are ideal ingredients for a sweet Sunday swoon. Look to the sky for a flock of Canada geese that made it inside the frame. See them? An awesome scene. Twilight at this farm is very special. Luke and I look forward to trekking there soon again.

Looks like the tropics, feels like the British seaside in the summer - luckily the water is still very much tropical! Fortunately, braving the rain was rewarded by three spotted eagle rays swimming right next to me, the biodiversity here is incredible #eagleray #nature #naturegeek #reef #drizzle #grey #boardwalk #swim #utila #honduras #carribbean #centralamerica #raincoatshortsandflipflops
You all may have noticed the IG username change and wonder why. It's pretty simple. The change was overdue. Mikey1150 has been my username since I first came on the internet in 1996. A lot has happened since then including rediscovering my love of nature, and embracing my nerdy side. So, I give you ruggednerd_pnw! #ruggednerd #gaygeek #mountainman #glaciernationalpark #glaciernps #instagay #naturegeek #bestmountainartists #findyourpark #nps #picoftheday
If I could be anywhere in the world, it'd be in the ocean or in a forest 🌊🌳🌲 #NatureGeek What about you? . 🌏 is a beauty, isn't she?  She gives us her love, she holds life for us to be loved; and she gives us nature: the cleansing ocean, plants to eat, plants and animals for an abundant eco-system (and animals to cuddle/love 😆), herbs to heal us, and trees to clean the air, to give us oxygen, shade and more food. And rain and springs to give us water💧 . Sure, there's a lot of bad happening in the world, but there is so much more good 🙏 🎶 And I think to myself, what a wonderful world♩🎶 . Mahalo Ohana 🙏  Sending you all love, laughter and good vibes. Wishing you an EPIC week 😘☉✌💙💜💚💛 . #BeKind #DoGood #KeepShining #Radiate

Someone forgot to set his alarm, over slept, and missed his window to hit Franklin Falls this morning before the crowds. I suppose that's what I get for geeking out and killing aliens with a few buddies late into the night. So, let's pretend that I'm back at Yosemite strolling in Hetch Hetchy. Meanwhile, an urban hike will be on today's agenda! #yosemitenps #yosemite #nps #usinterior #bestmountainartists #outbound #naturegeek #mountainman #adventure #hikingadventures #wildernessculture #choosemountains #naturephotography #naturelovers #findyourpark #mypubliclands #optoutside #landscapephotography #pictureoftheday #photooftheday #instatravel #instagay #gaygeek #sharetodaysadventure #mothernature #picoftheday #bestnatureshot #rei1440project
I feel like I want to turn my home into a botanical garden (thank you @naki.yoga.earthling for leading us all astray 😋) but I have so many things growing in my head that I just want those to bloom before I fill my spaces with flowers and plants, and settle for the few I have for now. Any fellow plant addicts here?
Just hanging out with a fungi. #RangerBear #fungi #naturegeek
