Definetly the most in-tent-se birthday I’ve ever had. 🎉 #tentrocks #optoutside #preserveourparks #newmexico #newmexicotrue #nationalpark
Tried to post this yesterday, but my caption didn't save. I blame it on political censorship. (Though it's more likely IG glitched) * Did you know that Glacier National Park used to have over 150 glaciers covering the mountains in Montana into Canada? Used to. There are only 25 active glaciers still in Glacier National Park; and there were just over 30 went I visited back in 2014. Try and tell me global warming isn't real with this in mind. And of course, Trump is just waiting for all of the glaciers to melt so he can take the land from the US Interior and NPS and make it public to sell.

I've done a terrible job of getting out this winter. I'm distracted by our house project, and the winter has been less than beautiful, but it begins to eat at me after a while. The creative monster pulls at the chains, and if I don't get out and make images soon, I can't be held responsible for the mess the monster makes... just fair warning. . . So here's a nostalgic shot from a winter trip to Yellowstone a few years ago. . . Soda Butte Creek is like the gateway to Yellowstone's portion of the Absoroka Mountains, and I try and -- more often than not -- fail to capture the moody skies that are so common over those high mountains. The light here was more compelling than the composition, but good reflections are always worth a shutter click or two. . . . . #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #nationalparks #usinterior #savethewest #nps #myynp #nationalparkalliance #nationalparkgeek #resist #saveourparks #preserveourparks #standwithnps #sodabuttecreek #absorokamountains #winterinyellowstone #winter #snow #winterphotography #winterreflections

// 2017 gave me a newfound appreciation for places i’ve never been, and for places that hold special memories in my heart. it was a reminder of things i didn’t realize i missed, and in a way i sort of feel as if i’ve found myself again not even really knowing i’d lost myself to begin with. grand teton is that and more for me. the overwhelming calmness and happiness i felt during my trip to this magical place was a wake up call for me, and i think that’s why it will always have a special place in my heart. 2017, you were enlightening. 2018, i know you’ll be full of even more amazing adventures and experiences, and i’ve never been more ready 🎆 . . . . . #reflectionsof2017 #2018 #newyear #greatyear #doinggreatthings #doingbigthings #letsdothis #goingplaces #happyplaces #grandtetonnationalpark #gtnp #mygrandteton #tetoncollective #westbysouthwest #thatsWY #visitjacksonhole #discover_wyoming #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #grandtetons #jacksonhole #jacksonwyoming #jacksonwy #perfectmountains #getoutdoors #exploremore #adventuremore #experiencemore #naturesbest
"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks" Muir Woods | Mill Valley, CA #nature #trees #redwoods #johnmuir #muirwoods #bay #california #earth #greatoutdoors #preserveourparks
Mountains, snow, skiers, a tram ride... it’s a long way from the desert we live in. So grateful to share this time off with my family, especially to see this little guy appreciate the world we live in. #lovewhereyoulive #respectlife #preserveourplanet #preserveourparks even when industry and government refuse to do so. The private sector (that’s us) has to stand up for the natural world before we pave over everything.
#yearinreview - #2017 started in the city I would eventually move to - I honestly never would have guessed in this moment. This pic was taken ten minutes after the park reopened after massive #pineappleexpress #elnino flooding. . . . #tbt #memories #hiking #nature #preserveourparks #winter #fun #redwoods #forest #friends #newyears #muirwoods #sanfrancisco #bayarea #marinheadlands #goldengate #california #usa #traveldiaries #wanderlust #adventure #keepexploring
[Sound effects. Chuckles. 'Nice. That's dope.'] Every since I've made a more concerted effort to connect with nature, I have felt greater balance. More importantly, I've expanded my level of perception. Nature teaches us many things. Often times, many of man's inventions are adaptations of nature's greatest creations. Visit a park, forest, lake and just sit and watch. You'll notice everything you see will go on living perfectly fine without human intervention. Respect the earth, and demand the same from Corporations run by your fellow man. #hiking #nature #waterfall #yosemite #california #texas #atx #peace #connection #unity #preserveourparks #nationalparks #esoteric #responsibility #duty #oneness #chi #tao #
Awhile back Lisa and I visited #CampSumter in #Andersonville , #Georgia . It was a #POW camp during the #CivilWar to hold Union soldiers. The history of this National Historic Site is horrific. It's really a must see if you are in the area. #PreserveOurParks #NPS #GypsyWind #NewmanArtography NPS Website: https://www.nps.gov/ande/index.htm
Sometimes what we perceive as ugly is simply a matter of perspective. . . If you have photographed Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park, you have probably overlooked this stream feeding the Snake River. Because most of the time you visit, it's a muddy little trickle that contributes nothing to the famous grandeur of this iconic location. If you saw it, you adjusted your view to remove it or minimize it in your final image. . . As I drove past it one winter day, however, the sun's glare reflecting off the barely exposed twist of this tiny stream nearly blinded me. Having caught my attention, I stopped, and evaluated this same muddy little trickle with a whole new perspective, for in the winter, it is no longer a mud slick, but a scintillating, blindingly beautiful little turn, carving through the untracked snow, capturing my imagination and my appreciation as it sparkled and shined its way along its brief track. . . Come spring when life returns to the Park, it will have once again shed its beautiful, snowy tresses and become the ugly little mud trickle once again. But I see it differently, now that I know its secret, wintery identity. . . And I wonder...when else have I made this same mistake? . . . . #grandtetonnationalpark #grandteton #tetons #mygrandteton #mygtnp #usinterior #savethewest #tetoncollective #nps #nationalparks #nationalparkalliance #nationalparkgeek #resist #saveourparks #preserveourparks #standwithnps #winterinthetetons #winter #snow #winterphotography #winterreflections
Whatever it is you celebrate this season, and however you celebrate it, it is the fondest wish of both Janet and me this year that it is peace on earth you seek...and find. . . Happiest of holidays to each of you on Instagram, and most especially those special few of you who have made the effort to connect in meaningful and fun ways! You have made my year all the more merry and bright! . .

"Barn's burnt down. Now I can see the moon." . Mizuta Masahide . ==================== The uninitiated might not believe me when I tag this location as Grand Teton National Park. But those who know will look at this and think, "Oh, the mountains were obliterated by rain clouds, which freed your lens up to explore Mormon Row from a different angle." . . Sometimes it's a great thing to "burn the proverbial barn to ground" and be grateful for the new opportunities it affords, no longer stopped, as it were, by the roofs we sit comfortably beneath. . . May we all see the moon for the first time again. . . . . #grandtetonnationalpark #grandteton #tetons #mygrandteton #mygtnp #usinterior #savethewest #tetoncollective #nps #nationalparks #nationalparkalliance #nationalparkgeek #resist #saveourparks #preserveourparks #standwithnps #raininthetetons #mormonrow
I finally finished reading Terry Tempest Williams’ “Red” and I couldn’t help but reminisce about all my time in southern Utah and my evolving view of the desert landscape. One of the quotes especially resonated with me: “The wide-open vistas that sustain our souls, the depth of silence that pushes us toward sanity, return us to a kind of equilibrium. We stand steady on Earth. The external space I see is the internal space I feel.” #keeputahwild #optoutside #utahisrad #preserveourparks

Walking through Garden of The Hods today I noticed hundreds of instances of vandalism. While I was standing looking at this rock, several little girls under 10 showed up to stand next to my kiddos and look at the rock to, and here is where I found our problem. The little girls pointed at the graffiti and told their dad "how cool" it was. Instead of being a parent, he AGREED and said, "come on. Let's see if we can find a spot to carve our name." And they went farther down the trail. WTF?!?! People who vandalize public parks, are not "cool" they are assholes. I was so shocked! #gardenofthegods #vandalism #vandalsareassholes #disrespectful #coloradosprings #preserveourparks
When all of our resources are polluted, chopped down, or dead....then what? . We’ll die too. 💔
Detail shot from this piece I’m slowly chipping away at, inspired by a vacation to the Hoh Rainforest and Olympic National Park when I was a kid. Memories get distorted as you grow older, so what I remember is probably very far off from what the forest is actually like. I remember mushy, wet, green growth with mushrooms and moss everywhere-and the fluffiest caterpillars you could ever imagine. . . #wip #mushrooms #chantrelles #wildmushroom #fungi #moss #deerskull #ferns #pacificnorthwest #pnw #olympicnationalpark #hohrainforest #temperaterainforest #rainforest #preserveourparks #nationalpark #acrylicpainting #botanicalart #ecology #conservation #conservationart
“Reflective Pause” SOLD but prints are available. Pastel painting by Valerie. While sitting there painting this, I noticed most tourists came up, took a selfy, turned around and left. I don’t know if they really saw it.

A trip to Grand Escalante is nothing to take for granted. It will teach you what "remote" really means, the true serenity of silence, the nature of survival, and the power of water for carving and shaping landscapes. There are many things I learned here that life has never taught or shown me before. It was like a history book in real life as water traveled thousands of years to seep from cracks in the rocks, petrified wood scattered the land withstanding millions of years and allowed the imagination to visualize old landscapes when the land and vegetation was lush. This place is our land. Don't let Trump fool you! This land deserves to be protected from industry and development. Drifted Earth stands by this and believes our future generations deserve to learn from this unique land for years to come!
