Scenes from Joshua Tree this summer ✖️Hammock adventures. Cute Airbnb’s. And a temp that was about 90° warmer than what we had today in Minny 😅🔥☀️
With marvelous view over the surrounding green mountains, a beautiful village is perched perilously around the rim of the cliffs, with old mudbrick houses surounded by roses gardens and agricultural terracing carved neatly out of the mountainside.
After much anticipation and planning, I got to visit Dry Tortugas National Park with @sharkweek1987 and @glavoie930 on Friday. The park is located 70 miles west of Key West, Florida reachable only by ferry (or sea plane if your fancy) and is basically a Civil War-era military fort built on a desert island with no real facilities or services. There are some great reefs along Fort Jefferson’s moat wall (yes it has a moat) and all over the old dock ruins’ post bases (pictured) where we saw so many incredible sea creatures, from colorful assorted fish to rare and vibrant sea coral. We didn’t get photos of that since we were just “living in the moment” but it was how we spent most of our 4.5 hours on the island. We also got to walk along the moat wall, swim off the pristine beaches, and I rode a cannon on top of the fort! There were some choppy seas on the 2-hour ferry back to civilization, but the piña coladas softened the blow. If I had it all to do again, I’d have planned to camp overnight (which apparently you can do) to explore the park more and be stranded in the middle of nowhere away from civilization for a bit. This was our 37th National Park visited in the last 4 years and I couldn’t imagine a better person to explore and discover them with than Kelly! (half of these photos are from her and her awesome camera as well!) #DryTortugas #NPS #findyourpark #ourparks
Mono Lake reminds me of an above ground version of The Little Mermaid. Anyone else sea it? 😏🧜‍♀️
Cold one today in #rmnp . Postholing sucks, we weren't prepared for deep snow and unpacked trails. More snow now than there was all of last season! Definitely need to get back here with skis and check out the #bananabowls . . . . . . . #notchtop #lakehelene #nps #colderthanitlooks #beprepared #nobaddays #getoutside

The greatest stories are able to be told without words, yet the greatest words are absolutely essential to every paperback wonderland ever produced.  This is progress, this is the consolidation, this is the future.  This is Minimalism, that little seed that started some decades ago, finally in the stage of maturation, only now eagerly awaiting fruition.  I worry for the written word, as I scribe my lifes’ story with forms devoid of sensuous angles, sharp corners, and second (2) definitions. . . . #canyon #longexposure #slowshutter #zionnationalpark #photographer #nps #redrock #hoodoos #nationalpark #americanwest #travelers #travellife #wild #outdoors #sunrise #landscapes #travel #roadtrip #roadkings #river #GOBIG #artists #nikon #photo #simplicity #simplelife #yosemite #utah #sunset
The weekend got away from me but here’s a photo from Bryce Canyon. The park is only a few hours from Zion, and made for a nice day trip. The scenic drive to the end is worth it for the views. I’d love to go back and hike amongst the hoodoos. . . . I’m posting my favorite photos from my Southwest road trip all week.

Use caution while driving or bicycling Scenic Drive as a construction project begins soon at the historic timbered bridge over Scenic Drive near Parking Lot A. NPS photo #construction #NPS [image description: a yellow road sign states restricted bridge 1 mile ahead 20 ton]

I recommend getting to Rocky Mountain National Park in the morning so you can find a trail head to park at (small park spots avaible) . we made the mistake of leaving Denver to late in the morning amd not realizing to account for drive time we were in a lot of lines.

I finally figured out how to transfer videos to my ancient iphone. This one is of the sunrise in the Grand Canyon last spring.

A silent forest is one of my favorite things. Here in Mariposa Grove, the Giant Sequoias and huge pine trees seem to suck up all sound. It reminds me of walking through an empty church.
Magnitude Death Valley, California __________ It’s hard to pinpoint why, but lately I have had a big lack of motivation in the photography/creative department. I think some of it has to do with my annoyance to Instagram. The trends get old and sometimes it feels like a big algorithmic robot. Sometimes I even question why I put so much of my life, energy or time into photography. When I really sit down and think about it though, the reasoning always boils down to the same things.. I have to think back to why I got into photography in the first place, which was because I fell head over heels in love with nature. I realized that I could combine adventure and photography as an avenue to bring me to beautiful places and take a piece of them with me in a photograph. And that alone is enough reason to keep pushing me and looking forward to the next adventure. This was taken during a wind storm in Death Valley National Park. It was amazing to see sand dancing over the rolling sand dune hills while catching a strong last light. * * * * * #california #californiadreaming #californiadreamin #californiaadventure #california_igers #californialiving #calilove #southerncalifornia #moodygrams #agameoftones #landscape_addicts #depthsofearth #earthvisuals #jaw_dropping_shots #adventureInspired #milliondollarvisuals #earthfocus #unlimitedplanet #allnatureshots #gramslayers #artofvisuals #roamtheplanet #theimaged #lensbible #wildernessculture #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #nationalpark #nps #deathvalley
Just appreciate it. Appreciate it while it's happening. ° This doesn't even need to be said, but I'll still say it; the majority of my captions have NOTHING to do with the images. Sure, the caption may pertain to an image, but it's rarely, if ever, created or incepted by the image. ° Like this one, I actively think/appreciate scenes such as this as they're happening, even stopping to take them in. However, the caption is a reminder to myself to appreciate more than just what's around me, more particularly WHO is around me and to appreciate them and let them know so. I think I do a decent job, but I never feel like I can portray my degree of appreciation. ° Image colors unedited. ° 📸 December 2018 📍 Clackamas County, Oregon ° ° ° #sunset #radiance #PNW #PNWonderland #PacificNorthwest #NPS #NFS #Nikon #NikonD3400 #WildernessCulture #HikingCulture #igPacificNorthwest #IGnorthwest #backpacking #camping #wilderness #mountains #Cascades #CascadiaExplored #GetHigh #optputside #rei1440project
A few years ago I drove Skyline Drive with a friend in search of some good fall foliage and landscape locations. We stopped for a very late lunch at Big Meadows and I saw this lovely lady enjoying lunch with her family. She seemed so pleasant and happy with her family and had a radiant smile. As she was leaving the restaurant I asked her politely if I could take her photo. I was fully prepared for her to say no, but she perked up even more and seemed flattered. So we walked out to the parking lot and I had her daughter help by holding my @westcottlighting 40" Reflector a few inches away from her to diffuse the late October sunlight. To this day, this is still one of my favorite portraits. #757 #757collective #autumn #fall #skylinedrive #scenichighway #virginia #explorevirginia #virginiaisforlovers #nps #shenandoah #shenandoahnationalpark #blueridgemountains #findyourpark #shennps #goshenandoah #bigmeadows #milepost51 #WestcottLighting #LightTheWay #PhotographyGear #OnLocationPhotography #PortraitPhotography #canon #teamcanon #canonusa #eos

Daydreaming of warmer, sunnier days when our current reality is grey, rainy and 45°. #throwback to our day trip to Diablo Lake at the beginning of October. One of my favorite places! 😍
Really wishing I was spending my Sunday staring at this view instead of my computer screen. The finals struggle is real, but the end’s in sight.

This juvenile night heron was patrolling the swamp edge at the parking lot after a long, steady rain day. The majority of their diet is crustaceans, frogs, and other aquatic invertebrates. The juveniles blend in the background better when they’re young, but their distinctive plumage on their crown will generally take a few years to fill in. #nightheron #birdingintherain #youngbird #nps #desotonationalmemorial
What looks like ruins is actually one of the original slave houses at #kingsleyplantation . For my birthday, my wife and I visited @timucuannps which is an amazing place full of history and beautiful nature. It contains the oldest plantation house in #Florida and 32 of these slave houses. We were lucky enough to go on a tour where we learned about the history of not only the plantation owners, but the individuals enslaved there too. 10/10 would recommend. . . . #history #americanhistory #nps #altnps #gooutside #birthday #birthdaygirl #adventure #adventureisoutthere #mothernature #environmentalist #civilwar #slavery
Through the past few weeks, we appreciated sharing the different perspectives on the events of the November 27, 1868, with audiences here at the park, across Oklahoma, and the nation. Today marks a proud moment for Washita Battlefield National Historic Site: the completion of our 150th commemorative events. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible including the descendants of the Washita; tribal leaders; government officials; presenters; artists; volunteers; Southwestern Oklahoma State University staff and students; visitors; public schools; girl scouts; and park rangers from Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site, Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site , LittleBighorn Battlefield National Monument, Chickasaw National Recreation Area, Big Hole National Battlefield, Oklahoma City National Memorial, Petroglyph National Monument, and Washita Battlefield National Historic Site. As the 150th commemorative events conclude, we are highlighting some meaningful moments of the past weeks. #FindYourPark #NPS

Another hike checked off the list. Wasson Peak was pretty cool. Highest point in Saguaro National Park West.
There’s light at the end of the road! Thanks to @nianticlabs I finally decided to check out a neat trail that’s only a short 20 min drive away in the Angeles National Forest. ⛰🏞 #ExploreWithNiantic #FindYourWay #NPS #angelesnationalforest #hiking #winter #adventureisoutthere #pokemongo #riversandtrails #nationaltrails #nationalwildandscenicrivers #50thanniversary

Many biologists believe that due to the density of the pines atop the ledges, strong enough updrafts could potentially lift these buried cliffs another 300 feet by 2024.
American Scenic Byway “The Kanc”. New Hampshire Route 112 is known as the Kancamagus Highway, running thru the heart of White Mountains. Kancamagus Scenic Byway is famous for autumn foliage and is a popular drive in September and October for fall foliage. * This is indeed the best road trips to drive during the fall colors viewing season. * #national_park_photography #backpacking #nps #nationalpark #hikingadventures #travelblog #hikinglove #globetrotter #travelblogger #travelgram #theswashbucklers #optoutside #usnationalparks #nationalparklife #nps #hiking #dayhike #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #usinterior #camping #nationalparkgeek #whitemountains #kancamagushighway #fallfoliage #newhampshire #mountwashington #conway #statepark * respect @nationalparkservice @usparksandmonuments

A torcida contra do Felipe não funcionou no Yosemite: encontramos uma ursinha gulosa logo ao entrar no parque e um lince-pardo no dia seguinte (só consegui registrar o traseiro do bicho). Ficamos com medo de que fosse na verdade um filhote de puma e a mamãe estivesse só de olho, mas disseram os menos leigos que era lince mesmo.
