Great to get out with friends @muledeer @ece_17 and Goat on the Timp traverse yesterday. It was a first for me to be on North Timp and I enjoyed the scramble up the northwest ridge. In this first pic we were admiring Lone peak, Bighorn, South Thunder and other peaks across the valley floor. In slide 2, Eric points out the ridge line we had just traversed at the conclusion of our 17 mile loop. In slide 3 we say goodbye to Goat after sharing some trail with him and his buddy en route to South Timp. The wildflowers were on in full display yesterday but you all already know that since I saw every Utahn on South Timp 😉. Everyone is pushing peaks these days. I guess that’s a good thing. #pushpeaks #mountainpeople #goatworthy #utah #visitutah #utahisrad #igutah #wasatchmountains #werutah #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #suuntoadventure #wowutah #utahdotcom #utahmountains #utahunique #mountainfit #mountainhigh #mountainscape #mountaingoat #timpanogos #timp #traverse #climbmountains #mountainrunning #pushforthepeak

The gods enjoy eternal youth, and the search for the means of securing it was one of the occupations of the heroes of mythology and the sages, as it was of real adventurers in the middle ages and more recent times. . . . But the fountain of youth has not been found, and can not be found if it is sought in any particular spot on the earth. Yet it is no fable, no dream-picture; it requires no adept to find it: it streams forth inexhaustible in all living nature."

Took 18 shots for this blend, stitched them together to create the pano, little dodging and burning, then each sun ray got a layer, touched it up ever so slightly with a little HDR action, then sent it back to LR to balance out the finishing touches…repeated this four different times since I wasn't satisfied with the first previous version..then I threw it up on Insta so you can view it on your smartphones with a broken screen. 😂 #utah #snowcanyonstatepark #hikingadventures #landscapephotography #mybackyard #stgeorge #youtah #utahdotcom #stgeorgeutah #utahphotographer #werutah #utahgram #utahisrad #photography #photooftheday #500px #canon #photoshop #sunrays #wowutah #utahisrad

Wildflower season is here and, if possible, you need to get out to see it!
Happy Sunday! What's everyone up to this weekend? ... I'm busy trying to get blog posts up from my trip to Utah and a hike I did at Mt. Rainier. Stay tuned 💻🤗 ... 📷 @amandastark7
In late May, me and a few of my siblings hiked Zion's Angles Landing then we turned around and in the same day hiked to Observation point. Two amazing hikes in a single day and over 14 miles covered. We had a blast but it came at a price. On the way down from observation point I separated myself from my siblings to race to the floor of the canyon to capture sunlight hitting the trees before it set over the canyon rim. While photographing the trees my legs, after hiking 14 miles, started cramping like crazing...although the tree photograph looks serene, I'm behind the camera legs kinking, and twisting up like a snake. Well worth the effort. #twistinglikeasnake #unforgettable #zionsnationalpark #findyourpark #godisthebestartistofall #pictureline #utahdotcom #utah #pictureline #visitutah #utahisrad #werutah #utah #instagram #beautifulplaces #neverstopexploring #ourplanetdaily #nature #xputah #feedbacknation #instagood10k #epic_captures #naturephotography #nature_lovers #natureaddict #landscapelovers #travelstoke #experienceutah #wowutah #utahgram #experienceutah #earth_unlocked #treeoflife

We took our time with the decision, like another guy in the Bible, named Jesus. He spent thirty years in obscurity before he started his adventure. Often, we're not willing to spend thirty minutes in preparation, never mind thirty years, especially when we come home from a conference and find our day jobs waiting for us on Monday morning. I'm not sure why Christians sometimes think the maturation of our own missions will be radically shorter than that of Jesus.

Ursa Major. * * As a kid, I always looked for the Big Dipper. It was the one constellation my youthful eyes could count on. It was also a quick test my dad would often pose to me — which star of the Big Dipper is a double, or twin, star? Turns out this little eye test offered by my dad was also posed by Arabic, German, and Japanese scholars as far back as the 13th Century. Can you see it? Mizar and Alcor are the double stars at the position of the second star from the end of the Big Dipper’s handle. Mizar is the primary star you see; Alcor is Mizar’s fainter companion. * * As an adult, I still always search for this constellation. Out of habit, or maybe nostalgia, I always test my eyes. As those two little lights twinkle in the dark (a “mere” 82.8 light years away), I often see glimpses of my childhood self gazing into the void with endless questions. I haven’t answered many of those questions, but I am content with questions lingering in the dark. * * Go find Ursa Major. Sit in the dark and test your eyes. Find a double star. Consider their distance and the unimaginable speed and power of light. Thanks for listening. I hope you enjoy this picture I captured recently on top of a mountain. * * * * #ursamajor #bigdipper #mizarandalcor #nasa #nightsky #nightscaper #night_shooterz #agameoftones #amazing_longexpo #amazing_longexposure #beautahful #depthsofearth #earth_shotz #gramslayers #hikevibes #longexposure_shots #moodygrams #nikonnofilter #natgeoyourshot #playindavis #pictureline #shotzdelight #trappingtones #utahdotcom #visitutah #wowutah #werutah #westbysouthwest
