Bryce is amazing in winter.聽 You can tell it's an older winter pic because the spire "The Sentinel" finally fell a few months later. 馃槥 It shows just how quickly the park changes.

There are a million little things you can do. Do you do a little happy dance for yourself every time you take a stand for the environment? You deserve it! #winsmall #thoughtfullyclean #taketimetuesday #zerowaste
If you cant help fight you can still help protect our national parks! I know we are all super bummed out about the absence of NPS personnel supervision but YOU are ultimately responsible for your actions. Now is more important than ever to practice Leave No Trace ethics and to educate our youth that the gravity of small choices can be powerful. #protectourpubliclands #fucktrump #fuckthewall #saveourparksfromtrump #governmentshutdown #dontbeasshole #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #savethenationalparks #protectourparks #nationalparksusa #dontdestroyourparks #makegoodchoices #vanlifediares #vanlifing #kentuckyfolk #desert #colorado #hikinggirl #liveoutdoors #wanderlust #mytravelgram #thisplacematters #gsd #hikingwomen #hikingwithdogsofinstagram #bicolorgermanshepherd #mountainhardwear #ugglife #getoutstayout #girlandherdog
It breaks our hearts to hear that some of the trees in Joshua Tree National Park have been destroyed by visitors that have carved new off roads paths through the protected desert during the government shutdown. Other visitors have broke down government chains to reach restricted areas. 馃槗Please do your part during this time and don鈥檛 take advantage of these natural areas. #protectourparks
A guy and the moon, throwback road trippin鈥
Always shreddy
There are many things I enjoy about the outdoors. 馃尣 . The peacefulness of nature, the opportunity to take inventory of your thoughts (ie. which ones are 鈥済ood鈥, which one are 鈥渂ad鈥, are you happy with the current direction of your life? etc.), and alternatively, the option to be fully present in the moment. . I tend to go back and fourth, but enjoy doing the inner work, while also literally stopping to smell the roses 鈥 or local flora. 馃尯 . Walking a dirt path, brushing your hand against some moss, listening to the tickle of a stream, or howling at the moon can be incredibly healing. . It offers the opportunity to create some space from any challenges you may be facing (however big or small), to regain your footing, catch your breath, and tackle the challenge from a new perspective. . And given time and presence, you鈥檒l be blessed with the answers you seek, or simply beautiful moments such as this. 馃寗 . 馃尣馃尣馃尣 . I鈥檝e been giving some thought into what I want to share on Instagram. . I haven鈥檛 figured it all out yet, but I hope to provide some more value. I may be a more selective with my posts, but I also enjoy the social aspects that come from posting more frequently. . However, I鈥檝e realized that sharing 鈥淚nsta-ntly鈥 doesn鈥檛 always allow you the opportunity to share something of meaning or value鈥 nor will there be earth-shattering meaning in every moment. 馃く . And sharing lessons from my own journey is challenging, because I think it takes time to actually learn those lessons before they are worth sharing. . If there is one thing I鈥檝e learned, it鈥檚 that places like this are far more than a few trees, dirt, and some tall rocks. . They are the places we go to find solitude, to catch our breath, to gaze in awe at Wonders that expand our mind, heal our soul, and shift our consciousness. 馃晧 . I鈥檓 not saying you have to live in a tree, but don鈥檛 live under a rock either. . And if you鈥檙e ever looking for suggestions on HOW or WHERE to sort through it all, hit me up. I鈥檒l be here. . Much love, Mike 鉁岋笍
A few last pics front the city then I'm done, I promise.
The view from Graham Peak looking south over City of Rocks National Reserve.聽 You can see most of the granite outcropping of the "Pluton" in the reserve.聽 There is also a large outcropping to the north (out of frame to the left). I've noticed similar outcroppings seem to be exposed all doen the Nevada Utah border in the depths of the Great Basin.聽 I might have to take some time in the Spring to investigate them to see how they compare.
The "Bread Loaves" at the top of the City of Rock Emery Canyon road. From this angle it doesn't look as much like a loaf of bread but you can see the amazing colors and texture of the granite in the area.
Snowy trails to nowhere with my sausage gal. I think she is pretty stoked to have a trail system on public land at the end of our street. She decided to join some other dogs and tried to hop in someone else鈥檚 car with them today 馃檮馃尛馃尣馃尛馃尣馃檮 #colorfulcolorado #kindacute #sunsouttonguesout #southpark #alma #lifeintheboonies #dog #beagle #sausage #stokeishigh #nationalforest #protectourpubliclands #junkinthetrunk
Why did we start making shower bars? To simplify our lives, connect with what matters, and protect AMAZING places like this. What motivates you to consider your everyday habits? #showupforwater #sparksimplicity #thoughtfullyclean
Does anyone else feel like they feel physical pain when our public lands suffer? // 馃彍馃彅馃寠
As the beaten path gives way to Mother Nature鈥檚 unbridled ruggedness, take solace in the fact that our gear will keep you cool and comfortable throughout your journey. 馃摳: @k.g.adams #wiseriverapparel #adventureresponsibly
Ripley and I had the most perfect run and continued to be bad at selfies. Matt made us burgers because he's the best. 鉂わ笍
Only on protected public lands can we enjoy such incredible landscapes. I鈥檓 feeling very fortunate to be a part of that cause since it allows me to explore this land so frequently. This photo of bison walking by geyser-produced ice fog plumes was taken on a snowcoach trip through Yellowstone. #protectourpubliclands #yellowstonenationalpark #snowcoach #yellowstonepledge #wildernessphotography #bison #geyser #winterphotography #nationalparks #optoutside #landscape #wildernessculture #wildernessnation #keep_it_public #greateryellowstone #wildmt

Happy birthday bud #staystoked
Tent Rocks National Monument and the bluest of New Mexico sky鈥檚. . #adventurehydro #newmexicotrue . . This spectacular monument was shaped by water鈥 as much of our landscapes are. The reason for the teepee shape of the rocks is due to a caprock that is less erodible (aka - harder) than the rock beneath it. Eventually, the softer layers beneath the caprock will the erode and the tent shape pillars will come tumbling down into the slot canyons hidden beneath these beautiful spires. #geologyrocks #scienceissexy #hydrology . . . As promised, as long as the shutdown lasts I am going to keep taking you to the beautiful places impacted by indecision and uncompromising representatives of our democracy. #americaisgreat #learntoadventure #protectourpubliclands

In case you are looking at these pics thinking, 鈥淲ow, that looks glamorous and amazing!鈥 I would like to share the behind the scenes. On the approach, I fell down in the deep snow so many times that I started just crawling up the ridge with the 200 foot rope on my back. It was not a cute look. 馃檲 But totally worth it. #utahsucksdontcome #beutahful #utahunique
Today we add another year onto @evergreencj6 life. 鈥 It鈥檚 been a good five years of love, laughter, learning, and wandering. 鈥 Good ten years of friendship and shenanigans before we dated. 鈥 I wouldn鈥檛 be who I am today without Tom.

You know what the coolest selfies are? Trail cleanup selfies! It鈥檚 a shame that there are people out there with no conscience, but that鈥檚 why we are here. Swipe left for ways you can help. 馃棏 we won鈥檛 be reposting any photos from the US National Parks until the government shutdown ends and order is restored to our parks鈾伙笍 Regrann from @nationalparkpaws 馃摳: @parksproject #leavenotrace #goparks #parksproject #keepitwild #cleantrails #cleanparks #cleanwater #protectourpubliclands #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #nationalparksusa #leaveitbetterthanyoufoundit #volunteer #wildkeepers #nature #keepitwanderful
Really fortunate for all the opportunities Ive had and all the future opportunities that lie ahead. Just when I felt lost I got sucked into the outdoor lifestyle and never looked back. Heres to many more parks, rivers, mountains, and deserts 馃嵒馃彆鉀梆煆
Please enjoy this beautiful picture of a Washington State Park while our National Parks get absolutely destroyed in this shutdown because we can't have nice things and an orange baby is throwing a temper tantrum. #notsorry
Circle Creek Rock House site in the middle of the park, the area is private land so you need to do some tricks shooting through the fence.
Thanks to the city of St. George and Zion Forever for keeping Zion open during the madness of this shutdown. Some simple rules for visiting the parks during shutdown: #packitinpackitout #leavethdogathome #nobodylikesdrones #dontfall #nationalparks #npca #protectourpubliclands
Run 16ishhh miles. Let your Garmin die & not consume enough calories (800 is never enough) because you're never prepared. Get the dog hooked on @tailwindnutrition (only the rasp...it tastes like snoozeberries) and drink a beer post run in 30掳 weather. But most of all be weird..... And avoid the road runners (they just don't understand the @yetitrailrunners way) #trailsisters #teamtrailsisters #trailrunners #ultratraining #ultrarunning #ultrawierd #fuckthisimgoingtrailrunning #50milesorbust #IAT50 #runwild #protectourpubliclands #optoutside #runwi #runhardornot
"While the vast majority of those who visit Joshua Tree National Park do so in a responsible manner, there have been incidents of new roads being created by motorists and the destruction of Joshua trees in recent days that have precipitated the closure,". While the government is still shut down PLEASE stay out of the national parks. Fragile ecosystems are being damaged. Trashcans and bathrooms are overflowing. Unless you are going to the parks to participate in a cleanup, please visit your state or local parks during this time instead. #fucktrump #protectourpubliclands #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #leavenotrace
I wanna go back to visit the giants! Who wants to come with me to the Redwoods?! We took a trip down for my birthday in Fall 2014 to see these beauties! I鈥檝e been looking back through photos from trips to national parks and areas that are public lands, and hoping that people can better respect natural and national treasures as the Government Shutdown drags on. #bigtrees #redwoods #quietgiants #gianttrees #theredwoods #norcal #northerncalifornia #lush #green #explore #optoutside #adventures #wanderlust #myhappyplace #theforest #endtheshutdown #governmentshutdown #protectourpubliclands #nationalparks #protectournationalparks #lovenature
Wanna know a secret? One of our secrets to sustainability is using locally sourced ingredients. Our soap might not taste as good as Grandma鈥檚 apple pie, but thanks to this Berkshire lard from our farm friends, this amazing goodness becomes a rich, luxurious lather in our shower bars. * Fun fact: lard and palm oil (the more commonly-used ingredient in soap) both contain a substance called Stearic Acid. It鈥檚 what makes soap hard and long-lasting. We choose lard because we can source it locally, from farms we know are thoughtful about how they feed and care for their animals. In contrast, palm oil production is a significant cause of deforestation and loss of wildlife habitat today. Besides, why ship something from the other side of the world when you can get it from your neighbors? * #thisiswhy #palmfree #tonsofsuds #supportlocal #thoughtfullyclean #knowyoursource
Pano 3 of 3 - CLICK NAME TO SEE FULL PANO. Hayden Valley is one of those magical locations in a magical place. Beautiful in scenery and a haven for wildlife, it鈥檚 one of those locations that holds a special place in my heart.
We are getting settled a little at a time here in Seattle. It's a whirlwind and life is feeling mighty full, so I'm practicing patience as I wrangle myself to take the rest I need, the outside time I need, the moments away to look long at a sunset or a tree or some other reminder to breathe for a minute.鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅 鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅 We can do this, you guys.

Some of the isolated monoliths on the road up into the "City". I'm really ready for warm weather like this again...
There are people in this world that go out of their way to vandalize and destroy protected lands during a shutdown. It鈥檚 fucking unbelievable that people are this fucking disgusting. They take advantage of this shutdown to cut down protected Joshua trees to make roads and trash the place. What the fuck is wrong with people? #JoshuaTree #NationalParkService #California #protectourpubliclands
