I hardly knew where to turn Friday morning as incredible color burst out in every hue in every direction. The heat from this golden glow had me wondering if the Princess Timpanogos was working on her tan, basking in the sun's powerful rays.
Red Hot Mama. I had to stop and take it all in as the tracks became a molten reflection of the fiery morning skies.
Stoked about all the fresh powder
Lifes adventures continue because of organ donation. 5 years ago today I received the gift of life because a family I will never know made the difficult decision to donate their wifes/mother organs. I was blessed to receive one of her kidneys. Every run, bike, hike, ski, day at the office or otherwise does not pass without thinking of them. #throwbackpic #areyouanorgandonor #kidneytransplant #organdonation #pushpeaks #recyclelife #health #gratitude #thisisogden #visitogden #donttakelifeforgranted #wasatching #utahillustrated #bestofogden
Carpe diem, friends! ☀️ . . We may finally have snow outside my door but I'm processing photos of warm desert sun ☀️ from our trip down south last weekend. This was taken near the Utah/Arizona border along the Virgin River. There was just something about the sun peaking through those Joshua trees that drew me in and defined the desert landscape. Although my heart lies with high alpine landscapes, the desert definitely carries it's own unique beauty and power that makes me feel centered and whole. 🌵What do you prefer, desert or alpine? . . . . . . #joshuatrees #sunburst #amazingphotohunter #jaw_dropping_shots #majestic_earth_ #landscape_joy #planetawesome #ourdailyplanet #theworldshotz #landscapescapture #awesome_photographers #earth_shotz #Utah #beutahful #visitutah #wowutah #utahunique #utahgram #utahisrad #naturalutah #utahillustrated #werutah #xputah #nature_perfection #master_gallery #westbysouthwest #adventurenthusiasts #earthfocus #igsouthwest #wondersofourplanet
Sometimes great adventure can be found right in your backyard. Our original plans for the day didn’t come together so we decided to hike up Horsetail Trail. It turned out to be a beautiful day and even more beautiful hike. Check out our blog for more details.

During my decades of travel across southeast Utah, I have come to know this country in all seasons. Muted midwinter light rests gently on the mesas, the red rock landscape subdued with a dusting of snow. The brilliant sunlight of midsummer intensifies the harshness of the landscape, its ruggedness revealed in jagged shadow. The cracked earth and parched plants of a scorching July day are transformed in minutes by monsoon rains, releasing long dormant scents that are imprinted in my memory. .

On my way back from a quick adventure on Antelope Island I looked out across the Great Salt Lake and the city lights just glistened in its stillness. I had to stop and get a shot. . When I was able to see the shot on a larger screen I was surprised to see the details I had actually picked up. Not only the reflection of the lights on the lake, but also the backdrop of the mountains and the stars in the sky. . Just goes to show, keeping your eyes open for things you may not have initially expected can turn out to be great things! .

Feeling inspired and grateful 🙏✨ . . Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah - a slightly new edit on my most popular photo (and most featured 👌) taken just before New Year's 2016. It was an incredible moment with my family by my side witnessing the magnificent wonders of our earth and feeling inspired and grateful for a new year ahead and all the possibilities it held. ❤️ These are the moments forever treasured. ✨ . . . . #brycecanyon #brycecanyonnationalpark #amazingphotohunter #jaw_dropping_shots #majestic_earth_ #landscape_joy #planetawesome #ourdailyplanet #theworldshotz #landscapescapture #awesome_photographers #earth_shotz #Utah #beutahful #visitutah #wowutah #utahunique #utahgram #utahisrad #naturalutah #utahillustrated #werutah #xputah #nature_perfection #master_gallery #westbysouthwest #adventurenthusiasts #earthfocus #igsouthwest #wondersofourplanet
Extremely long morning commute up Little Cottonwood Canyon.
Most of us are consumed with our own thoughts and desires and are not always thinking about what other people may want. This is not necessarily being egocentric; it is just being human.

When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. ~ Psalms 61:2 . . Finally caught a bit of that alpenglow on the backside of Cascade peak last Wednesday and it filled my soul with indescribable peace and wonder. How I love those snow-capped mountains! My soul lives here. 🏔💛🙋 . . . . . #provocanyon #mountainlovers #amazingphotohunter #jaw_dropping_shots #majestic_earth_ #landscape_joy #planetawesome #ourdailyplanet #theworldshotz #landscapescapture #awesome_photographers #earth_shotz #Utah #beutahful #visitutah #wowutah #utahunique #utahgram #utahisrad #naturalutah #utahillustrated #werutah #xputah #nature_perfection #master_gallery #westbysouthwest #adventurenthusiasts #earthfocus #igsouthwest #wondersofourplanet

In winter, the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity. Summer is more wooing and seductive, more versatile and human, appeals to the affections and the sentiments, and fosters inquiry and the art impulse.

Chased by moose☝️ Throw back to last year. Snow was deep and this gal didn't want to give way to the packed trail. As you can see we obliged, especially once we saw her hair bristle.

The lift ride to get to the top of the mountain takes a while, but the view is worth it.

This Utah winter has been crazy. There’s not enough snow to snow shoe, but enough that you need something to hike. These YakTrax traction cleats were perfect to get us up the mountain. Love, love, love being in the mountains! Before our hike I was tired and didn’t feel like going. Five minutes on the mountain and I was rejuvenated and so happy we went. • • • • • • • • • • #girlsgoneadventuring #adventure #hiking #utahcounty #horsetailtrail #yaktrax #hikingblogs #foryourmountain #lasportiva #utahunique #utahgram #utah #werutahgirls #slcmoms #onlyinutah #youtah #utahillustrated #utahvalleymoms #utahisrad #utahisbeautiful
