Over the course of a couple of days we hked back down the canyon to the Boundary Creek Trail and followed it to Dunanda Falls, which is only about eight miles from the ranger station at the entrance to the park. Dunanda is a 150 foot high plunge facing generally south, so that in the afternoons reliable rainbows dance over the rocks at its base. It is the archetype of all western waterfalls. Dunenda is an Indian name; in Shoshone it means straight down,which is a pretty good description of the plunge • • • • • #calihikes #camper #worldtravelpics #theoutbound #california #mossy #letscamp #winter #hiker #lushlandscape #climb #glacier #backcountrycamping #bayern #surfer #pnw #naturelover #nuvole #animal #mountainclimbing #sierras #thenaturalstate #nz #sunny #island #italy #camp #wild #mothernature #roadtrip
Born J.R. Cash on February 26, 1932 in Kingsland, Arkansas, Johnny Cash was the fourth of seven children born to Ray and Carrie Cash. When J.R. was three years old, the family moved 220 miles north to Dyess, Arkansas. Ray and Carrie Cash had been recruited, along with other Arkansas sharecroppers and tenant farmers (500 families in total) who were living in poverty because of the Great Depression, to participate in the historic Dyess Colony. Dyess was a New Deal colony established by the Roosevelt administration in 1934. It was meant to be a self-supporting agricultural community which would allow poor families to start over with a home and land they could work to eventually own. Johnny Cash has said that his family were so relieved to have this farm house, that the first day they arrived, even though there was nothing in the home, they all fell to the floor and cried out of gratitude. The struggles he witnessed during this time inspired much of his music and life-long sympathy for the poor and working class. The Cash home is one of the few houses remaining from the Dyess Colony along with the Administration Building and the Theatre where a young J.R. Cash saw his first movie. He lived in this Dyess farm house until he graduated from high school in 1950. The home has been restored and is open for tours along with other parts of the Dyess Colony. #southernreverie (read more at link in bio)
Chased these little dudes around while we were kayaking last weekend trying to take pictures and such but this one was particularly unhappy about it! Hehe. It hold it's own though! And never let go of its prize no matter how close I got. . . . #NorthernWaterSnake #snake #dinner #snakesofinstagram #snakes #watersnake #dinnertime #kayaking #fishing #sylamorecreek #arkansaslife #explorear #wonderfularkansas #arkmophs #thenaturalstate #arkansasonly #visitarkansas #nature #onlyinarkansas #myarkansaslife #catchoftheday #hunter #explorearkansas #explore #adventure #instagramar #igar #igers #igersarkansas #instagramarkansas
But of course, without the top you can’t have any sides. It’s the top that defines the sides. So on we go—we have a long way—no hurry—just one step after the next—with a little Chautauqua for entertainment .Mental reflection is so much more interesting than TV it’s a shame more people don’t switch over to it. They probably think what they hear is unimportant but it never is • • • • • #offroad #utah #whitney #campfire #pattern #woodgrain #travel #taipei #cloudporn #hikergirl #thenaturalstate #mountains #adventures #surfer #lake #fuelyourlife #kites #photographywe #island #palmtrees #wandern #naturelovers #snow #lakelife #nikonphotography #coloradophotography #earth #rokinon12mm #communityfirst #peoplescreatives
I cannot put into words how bad I needed this, how it almost killed me and how disappointed I am that I have to “square fit” it to show y’all the entire thing. No words. #nofilterneeded #arkansas #arkansassunset #thenaturalstate #pinnaclemountain #pinnaclestatepark #nature #naturalbeauty #hikearkansas #arkansasonly #arkansasstateparks
Started our 3rd year of marriage today by hiking, chasing waterfalls, and having a picnic. Can’t wait to see what other adventures await us this year! 💕 #sandersadventures
Got some reading done while Garbanzo stood guard. Magical weekend with @lahacre13 and The Bonz in the Ozarks. — - - - - - - - #gunnisonpool #thenaturalstate #arkansas #weekendwarriors #outsideischee #deathsend #cixinliu #hammocklife
How fabulous down was for those first minutes! Down, down, down I'd go until down too became impossible and punishing and so relentless that I'd pray for the trail to go back up. Going down, I realized was like taking hold of the loose strand of yarn on a sweater you'd just spent hours knitting and pulling it until the entire sweater unraveled into a pile of string. Hiking the PCT was the maddening effort of knitting that sweater and unraveling it over and over again. As if everything gained was inevitably lost • • • • • #island #all_shots #xt1 #sunshine #tagsforhearts #wideangle #natureonly #whitakerspoint #meatte #blitzworld #ultrawide #bayern #natureaddict #wildlife #montegrappa #nofilter #adventure #instagram #wonderful_places #thenaturalstate #treking #lifeofadventure #river #mountainlover #alps #wildernessculture #nuvole #sailing #europe #cloudporn

But it’s all still there in my heart and soul. The walk, the hills, the sky, the solitary pain and pleasure—they will grow larger, sweeter, lovelier in the days to come, like a treasure found and then, voluntarily, surrendered. Returned to the mountains with my blessing. It leaves a golden glowing on the mind • • • • • #happy #outdooradventures #coffee #travelingourplanet #sunny #river #rei1440project #globetrotter #food #hiking #wandern #trail #hashtag #hobby #thenaturalstate #camping #instagramde #sunshine #surfer #intents #awesome_earthpix #exploremore #climbingcalifornia #rokinon12mm #california #naturephotography #camp #outdoors #naturelover #oregonexplored

Gazing around, looking up at the lofty pinnacles above, which seemed to pierce the sky, looking down upon the world, it seemed the whole world, so limitless it stretched away at her feet, feeling that infinite unspeakable sense of nearness to Heaven, remoteness from earth which comes only on mountain heights, she drew in a long breath of delight, and cried: "At last! at last, Alessandro! Here we are safe! This is freedom!

I saw how in the fall and winter of my childhood, I'd walked through the golden aspens. And then I simply committed and gave myself my own eyes • • • • • #couple #trail #trails #naturelover #throwback #overland #inspiration #whereswaldo #pnwstuff #fireboxstove #tree #moss #italy #explorecolorado #snow #alaska #poncawilderness #details #montagna #findyourpark #summer #iceland #lake #animal #xt1 #communityfirst #thenaturalstate #wilderness #whitney #brown
Does this happen to all moms? You are reading and your kid walks by. You see them from the corner of your eye, but something about their size makes your head jerk away from whatever you are doing to see who is in your house. Only, you find it is your kid and it is their body. They have grown though. They have grown and you missed it. Rylee (left) walked by last week and I thought it was Elijah (right) until he spoke to me. They have both grown so much this summer. One day I will look up and see full grown men where these kids once stood. 😢

I wrote a thing based on this picture that I took leaning out the window of my Jeep (I was a passenger obvi). Link in bio and I can never think of titles. #writing #selfpromotion #nature #arkansas #thenaturalstate #reallybadpoetry
