Well, we made it home! In total we drove 1,786 miles, hiked a modest 71 miles, and climbed 288 floors with around 35lbs of gear in the past 3 weeks. A few topics that coming home has brought to light to us is that returning to the East Coast is a culture shock. There is so much grind, internalization, and cell phone usage (especially among drivers) rampant in public places here in South Florida. What a stark contrast to the welcoming vibes, relaxed paced, and surveillant demeanor of the lives in the PNW. There is likely bias is our experience as we are transitioning from a vacation mindset back into the working mentality, but that brings us to our next point. Being conscious of our attitudes after unplugging and carrying that inner peace moving forward is crucial. We often become so single sighted, aiming to accomplish our goals as quickly as possible in order to move onto the next step, endlessly striding after the dangling carrot. In the meantime we have forgotten to live in the present, interact with our surroundings, and appreciate our time and this world we live in.
How often have you stood at the bridge to something new? Will the bridge passage be safe? Will the other side be what you thought, imagined, dreamed of? Will it be worth it to cross? Will the trail ahead be hard? Will it be beautiful? Do you really want to leave where you are? Do you consider turning back? But wait. You have adventure in your soul. It calls from the trail ahead around the bend where you cannot see. Time to take the next step forward. You won't regret it. . . . #cascadecanyontrail #jennylaketrail #hiddenfallstrail #inspirationpointtrail #nationalparkgeek #grandtetonnationalpark #grandtetons #gtnp #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #tetons #mygrandteton #national_park_photography #allnatureshots #tetoncollective #nationalparklife #bridge #hike #hikingadventures #neverstopexploring #exploremore #natgeoyourshot #theoutbound #mountainlovers #mountainviews #nationalparks #nationalparksusa #parkroamers #nps100
The characteristic red cliff faces of Zion National Park. Unfortunately we only had a short time here so we only managed to see the parts we could drive in, however we definitely plan on coming back for a hiking holiday! . . . . . . . . . . . #zionnationalpark #zion #utah #canyonlands #beutahful #igutah #nationalpark #findyourpark #nps100 #nps #nationalparkgeek #landscape_lovers #nature_shooters #naturelover #hikingadventures #outdoor #scenery #littletravelogue #exploretheworld #roadtrip #ontheroad #mountainlife #landscape_lovers #mytravelgram #traveladdict #travelling #traveltheworld #instatravel #mountainview
We are getting some amazing October days here in the PNW. We took a little drive up Hurricane Ridge the other weekend and saw this. It’s easy to forget how much awesome is right in our own backyards.
Afternoon adventures! #day156of365 #hollywood #florida #sunset

Hitting the open road tmrw for a trip to VT with the gals 🍂🎃🍂⠀ •⠀ Looking forward to lazing by the fireplace, eating all the comfort foods, and braving the elements to bask in glorious foliage. New England in the Fall, y’all. 👌🏻⠀ •⠀ With only one weekend off this month and all client galleries being delivered early, this girl is clocking out for some almost-end-of-wedding-season r&r! ⠀ •⠀ Free spirited passenger goals by the lovely @marie.shea @brothersartisanoil | Planning: @kellysgolia
#tbt We hiked up the High Peaks - Condor Gulch Trail under the blazing sun to catch a glimpse of some California Condors doin’ their thang. Killer for the quads, but easy on the eyes. ✌🏻 . A National Monument since 1908, Pinnacles became a National Park in 2013. The 26,606 acre park gets its name from the unique rock formations created by an extinct volcano that huffed and puffed here about 23 million years ago. I think a lot of people probably dismiss Pinnacles as not very interesting. And I honestly wouldn’t call it beautiful—maybe picturesque. But if you’re looking for a place to find some challenging trails with sweeping views, don’t count Pinnacles out . #nationalpark #nps100 #pinnaclesnationalpark #nationalparkservice #pinnacles #california #rocksrocksrocks #rockclimbing #bayarea #sf #sanfrancisco #womenwhohike #hiking #outdoortones #girlgetoutside #girlswhohike #optoutside
#tbt - #KingsCanyon is made up of mostly wilderness. To really experience and find her deep secrets, you have to go long and hard. I feel that a lot of our trip is “driving to the edges” of these great spaces of wilderness. We get glimpses of the beautiful places and of what it means to experience these parks. But there is SO MUCH more to discover! Part of me wishes that we could have a month in each park. That way we could get into the nooks and crannies and pull out all the secret treasures that are hidden deep inside. But even in a whirlwind tour of these places, we are constantly reminded of our role in what Wallace Stegner referred to as the “geography of hope”. We are inspired even though our efforts barely scratch the surface. #VladimirKitten • • • • • • • • • • #nationalpark #nationalparks #nps100 #findyourpark #goparks #npmillenials #nationalparkfoundation #nps #nationalparksusa #americasbestidea #nationalparkgeek #radparks #optoutside #livelifeoutside #beautifuldestinations #moderndayexplorer #gorediscoveramerica #theoutbound #alifealive #getoutstayout #lifeofadventure #neature #getoutside #betheadventure #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #staywild
a sliver of light on a cloudy day along McDonald Creek..
Truly amazing endless waterfall. What do you think?

We were lucky to discover that we were headed back to Yellowstone for the start of the “rut” which is the mating season for mammals like elk. We watched this elk brush up against the tree and come in and out of the light. It’s also the first time we heard an elk bugle. If you look closely, you can see the scar across his face. . . . #bealpha #eastcoastcreatives #discover_wyoming #wyoming #thatswy #naturalwyoming #naturephotography #visitwyoming #nationalpark #tetoncollective #nature #YellowstonePledge #YellowstoneForever #yellowstone #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #nps100 #nationalparks #nps #rsa_outdoors #thegreatoutdoors #naturelover_gr #bullelk #elk #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildplanet #marvelouz_animals #splendid_animals #wildlifeplanet
Epic waterfall shot

You love me even when I’m a turd, and scratch my back when I finally decide to go to bed (sometimes 3AM some times 6AM 😅) and you let me squeeze your butt, and eat your fries so yeah you’re pretty cool and you make adulting fun... 🙃😘✨. Did I mention you’re cute AF? 😏 . . . . . #getoutside #colorado #nps100 #liveauthentic #whereonagoes #artofvisuals #folktravel #getoutside #wonderful_places #modernvoyage #wanderfolk #welltravelled #stayandwaner #wanderwashington #sociality #instagood #lifeofadventure #theoutbound #modernvoyage #beautifuldestinations #igmasters #neverstopexploring #live2folk #passionpassport #upperleftusa #wishyouwerenorthwest #feedbacknation #letsgosomewhere #folkgood #destinationphotographer #passeytravels

Oh hai Mars... I see you too Milky Way! That's a wrap on Milky Way shots this year for me. Where to next?
Spent a coooold ❄️ night camped out at 9000ft before venturing out into Great Sand Dunes National Park
The Mr and I have been kicking ideas around about where we want to move after J graduates and there are some pretty epic locations on the table. All I ask for is a lush courtyard with a bunch of ornate little balconies...that’s reasonable, right?! 🤷🏻‍♀️ #ishootfilm @gardnermuseum

who says california doesn’t get fall colors? 😍
As cute as this little squirrel was to see right off the trail in Glacier National Park, it was a prime example of why you don’t feed the wildlife especially in a National Park! ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He was way too comfortable with human interaction. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like I stated in earlier post about this squirrel, I laid on my stomach to photograph this squirrel from a distance, it immediately ran up to me and crawled onto my arm just after I got this shot probably to see if I had food for him. Most people would think this is cute but it’s not. This wild animal has lost its fear of people. This can ultimately cost this squirrel it’s life. So please help spread the word and help keep wild animals wild! ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel (Callospermophilus lateralis) - Montana, USA⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are interested in purchasing any of my photos and do not see them listed on my website, send me a private message to let me know!
