Clouds are some of my favorite things #glacierbay #alsomountians
Have you ever woken up to birds singing? Chances are you didn't even notice when they stopped. You got up, you got busy with your day. But if you've ever woken up to a car alarm, there's a great chance you celebrated the quietness of the aftermath. Why does it take something screaming at us to be appreciative of what's always there if we paid attention in the first place. Rise and shine. ๐Ÿ“
If you wanted more animal shots from me, stay tuned. I have whatever floats your goat.

For teachers, summertime is for reflecting. We look back at lessons we did and the notes we took on them as we try to plan for the upcoming year. Do we modify this lesson or throw it out? How can we be more relevant? How do we keep the rigor? How do we slide human kindness or growth mindset into the assignment without the kiddos realizing it? How do we make them think about a future that fits them when the only future they see is their waiting Snapchats? How do we find enough strong role models to speak to them and help them realize that not every story is beautiful, simple and from point A to B? Awesome MED Team, see you tomorrow to figure these things out... @kevin_franks116 @kellyn_schuster @rosesrlovely @lichtenwaldt34 @tonyapennebaker **** **** #reflecting in Yosemite - April, 2018 - I love visiting the park during or just after inclement weather. The park has an overwhelming calm that runs over it, not to mention the puddles to play in. * * * #picsbymichele #Yosemite #californiathroughmylens #np10k #thephotosociety #natgeoyourshot #photoarena_nature #findyourpark #nationalpark #yosemitenps #visitusaparks #visitcalifornia #teamcanon #yourshot #instagram #super_nature_channel #instanature #ip_wideview #scenic #capturelandscapes #landscape #landscapephotography #yosemite_national_park #bns_nature #moodygrams #createscenery #nationalparkgeek #the59parks #CaliforniaOutdoors
Love that ethereal quality that results when sea and sky and fog are one!

๐ŸŽผ#lordhuronlyrics #waitbytheriver .. I will wait by the river In the light of the moon At the edge of the city I will wait for you Though I can't wait forever Someday I'll be dead and gone And I won't be forgiven For what I've done I will wait by the river... I will cry out to heaven As it rains down on me I will beg for forgiveness Get down on my knees If I can't change the weather Maybe I can change your mind If we can't be together What's the point of life Baby, I didn't mean the things I said I don't honestly wish you were dead I'm a fool; I'm just a man If I only could hold you again And the stars fill the river As it flows into the sky And the mind leaves the body And floats higher and higher If we can't be together I will leave this world behind If I can't touch your body Can I touch the sky? ...I will wait by the river
Another shot from the location I was blessed to visit for the very first time - even if the conditions were less than perfect!
Happy Anniversary ๐Ÿ˜˜

Looking for a park steeped in wilderness? Kingโ€™s Canyon and Sequoia National Parks have been jointly administered since 1943, and itโ€™s here in these parks that you can find yourself the furthest from a road than any other part of the lower 48. Donโ€™t be surprised โ€” these parks are 66 miles long and 36 miles wide at their widest point, and 97% of them are wilderness. If youโ€™re looking for solitude, for places with humbling landscapes to disconnect with society for a time - these are certainly great parks for it. Just remember: when youโ€™re in wild places, always practice Leave No Trace principles and leave it better than you found it! Itโ€™s our responsibility to keep these spaces as wild and beautiful โ€” and thatโ€™s just what we aim to do. Have a great weekend out on the trail, everybody!
Would like to have been here on a clear day at sunrise instead of a gray rainy day... But when you're on vacation you have to take what you can get!
I left a piece of my heart in these mountains. I drove to Yellowstone from Utah, and deiced to drive though the Tetan National Park. This dive was 1.5-2 hours more than the other route but every moment of that drive was worth it. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Would you rather take longer route or shorter? โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #grandtetons #grandtetonnationalpark #mygrandteton #tetons #nps #findyourpark #grandtetonfoundation #visitwyoming #discover_wyoming #the59parks #tetoncollective #projectexplore #wildernessnation #awakethesoul #splendidearth #ourplanetdaily #getlost #the59parks #usnewstraveler #IamATraveler #wearetravelgirls #ladiesgoneglobal #dametraveler #citizenfemme #sheisnotlost #darlingescapes #thetravelwomen #nationalparkphotography #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography
It's easy to see why indigenous peoples held these places as sacred. Today in this land, you just have to make sure that you just don't become a grizzly bear's pray.
After many years of driving past this spot as a potential sunset photo op, I never hit it exactly right. This year came close!

@towkster70 it's been way too long since we've been to Yosemite. - March 2018, Yosemite National Park: This was a very hungry coyote who hunted in the freshly snow covered meadow successfully multiple times. Awesome to watch and she gathered quite a crowd. - I miss the blue hue of winter in the park. * * * #picsbymichele #coyote #hungrycoyote #np10k #wildlifekarma #throwback #tbt #yosemite_national_park #yosemite #canonglobal #findyourpark #instanature #nps102 #lexarmemory #super_nature_channel #instagram #visitcalifornia #fypyes #wildlife #bns_nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_perfection #naturephotography #animalelite #nationalparkgeek #majestic_wildlife_ #nature_brilliance #lifeisoutdoors #californiathroughmylens #the59parks #wildlife

And finally a view from near the campground as another day ends.ย  Have a good night!
Itching to get back to mountain views like this. Time to scope out our next road trip!! ๐Ÿš
What an amazing view! What is your favorite thing about roadtrips? Is it the feeling of the open road? Maybe it's the incredible views? Or is it perhaps the time spent with people you care about?

A beautiful shot by Chris C. Follow @_senorcastillo to see more like this! #officialparkpatches
This was probably one of the most beautiful places we saw in Glacier Nat'l Park: a field of wildflowers right before reaching Iceberg Lake. If my knee cooperates, I hope to see this again in a few weeks. ๐Ÿคž โ€ข โ€ข #glaciernationalpark #glaciermt #glacier_national_park #montana #montanaliving #visitmontana #hikemontana #nationalpark #nationalparkpictures #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #mountains #bestmountainartists #igersmountains #hiking #climbing #ig_fotogramers #landscape #landscapephotography #goparks #the59parks #whitefishmontana #optoutside #naturelovers #mountainsarecalling

It was a beautiful sunrise - a speck of light peering through the distant mesas and buttes, lighting up the red underside rocks of the sandstone Mesa arch, hanging over a lip of one such steep mesa, with nothing but air between the arch and the floor a 1000ft below. And to capture this premier attraction, more than a dozen photographers had crowded around, jostling for the strategic position that get the perfect angle of light and shadow. This image, however, is not your typical image from the Mesa Arch in @canyonlandsnps . I waited a while until the crowd cleared, and peered through the arch at the landscape that opened up in the light - an endless range of buttes and mesas rising up from the myriad formations on the floor 1500ft below. The play of shadow and light gave rise to strange silhouettes and bizarre vistas, a sight that was a delight to photograph. This is one such take on a unique vista in one of country's best @the59parks
As I lie in bed trying to adjust to this time zone and working again, I canโ€™t help but recall the feeling of the icy Pacific as the waves danced ashore during low tide ๐ŸŒŠ โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #staywild #getlost #findyourpark #olympicnationalpark #wanderlust #wildwashington #wanderwashington #secondbeach #nationalparkservice #the59parks #nationalparklife #ladiesgetoutside #womenwhoexplore #wonderfulwildwomen #gogalavanting #theladyalliance #theoutbound #outdooradventures #radgirlslife #outdoorwomen #mtnchicks #sheexplores #adventureisoutthere #pnw #wildcoast
Ainโ€™t that enchanting? Exploring National Parks is always a blast, but wilderness areas have excellent opportunities for solitude and breathtaking landscapes. Do you have a special wilderness area youโ€™ll always keep special? For me, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness will always be my favorite. A week-long trip through its crystal-clear lakes and camping on remote islands in my teens kicked off a love for the outdoors that hasnโ€™t flickered since.
Watch the sun set over mountains, not on your dreams. [Take a ride in that Porsche man, life's too short man; Consequently, There is luck in love.]

Most summers I run around with my head in the clouds, but so far this year I've remained pretty grounded, keeping busy with projects and goals close to home. It's been very gratifying to gain momentum and see the fruits of my labors, even on a small scale. Small steps each day result in big changes over time. That being said, I've still set time aside for travel and play, and for that I am grateful as well. Currently tying up loose ends and easing in to what feels like a well deserved long vacation. โœŒ๐Ÿผ๏ธ๐ŸŒป
