Looking through photos from last summer’s trip to @badlandsnps Badlands National Park as we head to the 27th Park of our Words of Preservation Poet Laureates Tour (next stop is @glaciernps ) ... and ran across this favorite. I love the mountains in the background, and I love my @pendletonwm blanket!! It goes on every trip with me. ❤️😁 #nationalparktour #nationalparkstour #travelingpoet #preserveourparks #pendletonblanket #badlandsnationalpark #poetrytour #poetlaureate #texaspoetlaureate #wordsofpreservation #karlakmorton
"Quit hanging on to the handrails and let go, surrender. Go for the ride of your life. Do it every day." _____ We spent the last portion of our hike up to Upper Yosemite Falls with an elderly man named James. You meet the most incredible people on hiking trails and this man was one of them. He spent time telling us about his travels, how he wanted to visit every National Park before he died (he had only 2 more to check off!) We traded stories of our adventures and took in this majestic view together. ____ He saw me take Eric's picture in this spot and asked if we could take a picture of him there. I hesitated, telling him the rocks were covered in slippery gravel and it was a sheer cliff. He responded, "I have lived a long and full life." He handed us his phone, walked over to the rock, made a triumphant pose, and shouted, "Live or die!" ____ Jame's outlook on life was nothing short of amazing. His zest for life and lack of fear was invigorating. We took a lesson from James that day, quit letting fear hold you back from the things you want to do, life is simply too short. ____ Has fear held you back from something you wanted to do? ____ #livelifetothefullest #surrender #inspiration #yosemitefalls #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitepoint #conservation #preserveourparks #findyourpark #merrell #trailtuesday #nationalparks #radparks #happypeoplehike #optoutside #forceofnature #hiker #hiking #couplesthathike #travelcouple #sheisnotlost #wanderlust #createyourtrail #adventure #neverstopexploring #choosemountains #outdoorwomen #darlingescapes #neverstopexploring #wearethewild
Did you know that June is Great Outdoors Month? Grab your family and/or friends and connect with nature, like I was doing in this pic at Wind Cave National Park (@windcavenps ) South Dakota during one of the stops on my National Parks Poetry Tour. #nationalparktour #greatoutdoorsmonth #travelingpoet #poetrytour #nationalparkstour #texaspoetlaureate #karlakmorton #wordsofpreservation #preserveourparks #poetsofinstagram #nationalparkservice #nationalparklove #windcavenationalpark
Ever wonder where we get out wanderlust from? Here are our adorable parents exploring Sequoia National Park in the middle of their road trip from Arizona to California. They have always fully encouraged us to travel and explore and I, for one, could not be more grateful for that. #sequoianationalpark #America #USA #nationalparks #California #visitcalifornia #explorenature #hiking #Sequoia #preserveourparks #parentsoftheconversesisters #conversechronicles #converse #travel #wanderlust #roadtrip #snapsfromtheroad #ourparentscanmakefriendswithanyone #theirsofriendly #parents #instatravel #travelgram #travelrecommendations #loveMarni
This day was by far the most taxing day on our trip but was also one of the best! Our last day in Glacier started off with a moose trotting through our campground, I can’t even explain how happy I was!! (I really wanted to see one and I knew my chances of spotting one decreased after leaving Glacier).. So began the hike to Grinnell Glacier, these pictures don’t do justice! Along the way, I leaned against a tree to tie my shoe and heard a sound, a hoary marmot was right next to me! Just after, a deer was on the path and we had to do our best to give him space. We made two mistakes on this trail, first we didn’t bring nearly enough water, and second we hadn’t eaten enough that morning. With a steep mile left and no water we decided to turn back, I WILL be going back better prepared next time! This hike was absolutely breathtaking and it’s totally worth it! On our way out we saw another moose which just made me even happier! It was such an amazing last day in Glacier! . . . #summer2017 #glaciernationalpark #manyglacier #grinnelglacier #hiking #beprepared #nps #roadtrip2017 #hoarymarmot #moose #nature #preserveourparks #protectourparks #wanttogoback #keepitclean #myhappyplace
A favorite “ritual” at each National Park visit is placing a new park sticker on my old, beloved suitcase. It’s even more fun with a canine audience! #poetlaureate #congareenationalpark #travelingpoet #nationalparktour #nationalparkstour #texaspoetlaureate #wordsofpreservation #preserveourparks
Good Morning World and all who inhabit it!! ✌️ We'll be sending #MountainMonday Vibes your way all day. Check our Instagram story later for more info on our "Adirondack Experience!" all-inclusive camping trip in 46 days!! 😬 (July 27th-29th).
I saw a marmot for the first time today. And he was awesome. That is all.
Hike 2 completed for the #summitmetroparks #spreeforall This would definitely have been the most boring of the hikes we’ve ever done- flat asphalt and as straight as it gets! You could see the end from the beginning 😂 We made it more interesting by detouring slightly to make our mileage a bit longer and took the road less traveled. And found horses! We have all determined that we are more of the rugged hikers. But it was still a fun way to spend a morning. 😊 • #hikeandbiketrail #summitcounty #metroparks #getoutside #hiking #hikingwithkids #sundayvibes #sundayfunday #weekenders #hikingadventures #naturelovers #preserveourparks #noplanetb #horsesofinstagram #redbarn #familytime #barnsofinstagram #cvnp #thisiscle #cuyahogavalleynationalpark #hudsonohio #trailmixboston #hikeohio #ohiohiking #girlsthathike

Designating the #BighornBackcountry as a Wildland Park provides so much for Albertans, from clean drinking water and safe passage for wildlife, to beautiful places to recreate and explore! .

@zionnps Zion National Park was something to behold! What National Park have you been to recently? Which one is next on your list? #poetlaureate #travelingpoet #zionnationalpark #nationalparktour #texaspoetlaureate #karlakmorton #wordsofpreservation #preserveourparks
Volunteer Day last week with Polk County Conservation. A pretty awesome dam crew! 😉 #buildingdams #rocksrocksrocks #preserveourparks #outdoorworkout
This, in my humble opinion, is the best hiking weather!

Sitting at 14,259 feet, Nesótaieux or, “Longs Peak” is one of 53 fourteeners in Colorado. Before Major Stephen Long spotted the mountain on behalf of the US Government on June 30, 1820 The Arapaho named Longs Peak, “Nesótaieux”. From personal experience, this is one of the more challenging fourteeners in the state, but what a view from the top! . . #theropepusher #arapaho #alpine #mountains #bouldercolorado #rockymountainnationalpark #longspeak #14er #colorado #colorado14ers #instadaily #nationalpark #publiclands #massive #coloradogram #estespark #exploremore #hikecolorado #livehigh #mountainliving #travelgram #layers #nature #ridgeline #landscape #peak #naturalbeauty #protectourplanet #preserveourparks #atpeace @nationalparkservice @exploreorg @mountaingirls @hikecoloradoorg @outdoorproject @fubiz @protectourwinters @coloradohikes @longspeakproject @coloradoinstagram @coloradoactivities @coloradotography @colorado14ers @co14ers @bouldersonly14er @rockynps

So lucky to still have places to watch sunsets like this one. That is why it is so important to preserve our wild ecosystems, so that future generations can find serenity like this. #saveourplanet #preserveourparks #optoutside #getoutdoors #goonadventures #observeyourworld #preserveyourworld #makeadifference #wildsunsets #camping #hiking #californiastateparks #naturaltreasures #wecanmakeadifference #wecansavetheworld #sciencewillsavetheworld #californiadesert #mojavedesert

After an almost five month break from social media, my heart is far too full to not share some of my favorite images from this weekends family vacation. Not only a fabulous time, but a first time for many of us! Feeling inspired and humbled by nature’s mighty strength and magnanimity, the natural textures and compositions Mammoth Cave has created over the past few millions years is pretty intellectually explosive. If only these images gave you a better idea of the grand scale behind its size. All of these towered over us as though we were one small pebble within an entire ocean. A series a beautiful moments shared with beautiful people within the beautiful landscape. #mammothcave #mammothcavenationalpark #cave #cavehunting #exploring #nature #earthsmight #earth #mothernature #caveexploring #caveenthusiast #hiking #naturelover #kentucky #memorialdayweekend #exploring #stalactites #stalagmites #vacation #family #cavebacon #peanutbutterwalls #naturesgrip #onesmallstep #bigearth #livebig #insearchof #nationalpark #nationaltreasure #preserveourparks #cavelife #nationaltreasure @cbousnakis @stratplayercjf @rockinnanataf

Albertans live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth—and we love to get out there to enjoy it. That's worth protecting. Designating the #BighornBackcountry as a Wildland Park will give everyday Albertans an incredible place to hike, bike 🚵, hunt, and more—all while protecting its natural wilderness for generations to come. But it can't happen without Albertans like you showing just how much you care. Show you care right now at the link in our bio (www.AlbertaPreserves.ca). #AlbertaPreserves #LoveYourHeadwaters
88% of North Saskatchewan River waters 🏞️ originate in the #BighornBackcountry . One million Albertans drink it. 💦 This is worth protecting. Add your voice. Protect our headwaters at the link in our bio (www.AlbertaPreserves.ca). #AlbertaPreserves #LoveYourHeadwaters

It’s amazing the amount of beauty we have in our own backyards right here in the States. Sadly, the current administration has taken steps to opening up our national parks for drilling and excavation. I’ve had the thrill of visiting a few of these parks over the years and every time I’m awed by their beauty. Let’s hope we can preserve these national treasures for generations to come. === What was the last national park you visited?! === wend • verb • to direct one’s course; to proceed on ones path...
Is your Alberta one that: - Preserves our natural spaces as a legacy for future generations - Provides recreational opportunities like hunting, camping 🏕️, and hiking, for all Albertans to enjoy - Creates new economic opportunities to showcase our natural beauty 🗻 to the rest of Canada and the world - Protects the quality of our drinking water sources 🌊 - Ensures the survival of threatened species - Keeps its national and international environmental commitments 🌎 If you agree with any of these values, add your voice right now at the link in our bio (www.AlbertaPreserves.ca). #AlbertaPreserves
I went and check the mail today guys! The way I worked for it, you'd think I was looking for an envelope with my name on it for a million dollars. There wasn't. . But hot damn, I was feeling beyond blessed to spend that time with a beautiful friend who beat cancer and is on a war path to be better and stronger; physically, mentally and emotionally. I couldn't be more grateful to have a friend like you @telise_25 !! .
