This is the Checkerboard Mesa right inside Zion National Park. Many of the lines you see are from big horn sheep walking along the mountain creating pathways. The beauties of Zion in the winter are absolutely stunning! . . . . . . #zionredrock #checkerboardmesa #zionnationalparkutah #snow #snowmountain #nature #motherearthlove #thingstosee #travel #hike #adventureland #adventurers #nationalpark #utahnationalparks #winterweather #redrock #bighornsheep #trails #sandstonerocks #pathway #mountain #mountainviews #nature_lovers #visitutah
Townsend’s Solitaire - medium sized thrush and the only solitaire in the West north of Mexico. It feeds primarily on berries and insects. The solitaire is amongst the most specialized of all North American birds since its diet in winter consists almost entirely of juniper berries, and the solitary birds form territories around productive juniper patches which they strongly defend. This one was feeding on this juniper while I was shooting Desert Bighorn Sheep, so I took a timeout to capture it as well.
Unthinking Acts, Unintended Consequences. Several years ago, some tourist stood at the Checkerboard Mesa Overlook, ate a juicy ripe peach and unthinking of the consequences, tossed the pit over the wall. Some Rock Squirrel or Scrub Jay most likely found the pit and buried it for future use. It sprouted and now there is a peach tree growing where one should not be. It is beautiful in late autumn, but it does not belong there and does not enhance the natural experience of the place. Please think before acting!
I don’t yet have any good shots of the Grand Canyon, but they’re coming soon. The permit for our backpacking trip was just approved. . . #nationalpark #grandcanyon #utahnationalparks #optoutside #hiking #hikingadventures #backpacking #camping #zionnationalpark #brycecanyonnationalpark #capitolreefnationalpark #archesnationalpark #canyonlandsnationalpark #monumentvalley #moab #utah #rei

Beautiful sunset I enjoyed from my campsite near Canyonlands national Park a few weeks ago. It was 25 degrees at night but just had to get that one last trip in before ski season!
Great trip to SLC! Saw bison, threw some axes, and saw some old friends. #antelopeisland #socialaxethrowing #slc #utahnationalparks #stuckonaplane

The amazing "hoodoos" of Bryce Canyon National Park in Southwest Utah 🏜 Did you know Bryce actually used to be an ancient sea millions of years ago and the rock spires were formed by water freezing in the rock overnight and melting and dripping down during the day 😲 #funfacts #flashbackfriday #nationalparkaddict . . . . . . . . #bryce #brycecanyon #brycecanyonnationalpark #brycenationalpark #utah #beUTAHful #lifeelevated #utah #utahnationalparks #mighty5 #nationalpark #findyourpark @brycecanyonnps_gov #roadtrip #roadtrippin #roadtripusa #solofemaletraveler #solotravel #wildwest #america #americanwest #landscapephotography #landscapephotomag
Devils Garden Primitive Loop- Arches NP ~10/3/11 #findyourpark #archesnationalpark #utahnationalparks @summitscout_co

Let’s keep exploring lands new to us, shall we? Root to the clouds, seek the red dirt. Climb through arches made of boulders and scramble over weathered fins — I bet you’ll uncover something made of pure magic. // I’ve officially started on writing my ebook on being an everyday explorer! Coming early 2019 ✨
Just reserved our Wilderness of Zion permit for a couple days of backpacking with @rediscovering_destiny Last year we did part of the West Rim loop via the Grotto and Angel’s Landing and it was a tough 19 miles for just one day. This year we’ll go a little further but split it up with a night of camping far from civilization. Luckily we just got some more cold weather gear from @rei for those high desert winter nights. . . #nationalpark #utahnationalparks #optoutside #hiking #hikingadventures #backpacking #camping #grandcanyon #zionnationalpark #brycecanyonnationalpark #capitolreefnationalpark #archesnationalpark #canyonlandsnationalpark #monumentvalley #moab #utah #rei
Hoodoos! Never seen anything like it 😍
Arches national park has left me speechless, when I was on my road trip with my boyfriend it was his pick and I wasnt too excited about (i was looking forward to Yosemite) and by the time we got home all I wanted to do was go to Arches again! It was absolutely amazing! I never would have thought a field of rocks would have brought me so much joy. . . . . . . #archesnationalpark #nationalparks #arches #utah #utahnationalparks #visitutah #utah #rocks #sundown #roadtrip #nationparkhopping #magical #amazing #nature #naturephotography #rockphotography

„Travelling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comforts of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things. Air, sleep, dream, the sea, the sky-all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it”. Cesare Pavese 🌏💙 Podróżowanie jest brutalne. Zmusza Cię, by ufać obcym i zapomnieć o tym, co znane i bliskie. Wytrąca Cię z równowagi. Nic nie należy do Ciebie, poza tym, co niezbędne. Powietrze, sen, marzenia, morze, niebo... wszystko to co zmierza do wieczności, lub do tego, co sobie wyobrażamy... Pięknie powiedziane. Zgadzacie się? Doświadczyliście tego w Waszych podróżach? #travelling #travelgoals #podroze #jezykipodroze #fajnezycie #blog #outofcomfortzone #pozastrefakomfortu #usa #canyonlands #utah #dziurawziemi #kanion #cudownie #utahnationalparks #beststateever
Today on December 4th: In 1930, the Pope approved the rhythm method of birth control, a natural method of birth control based on timing and a woman's menstrual cycle. That Catholic Church, always pushing the envelope. In 1954, the first Burger King opened. Unfortunately it was in Miami and who wants Burger King when you're on cocaine. In 1992 President George H. W. Bush ordered 28,000 US troops to Somalia during the Somali Civil War, giving us the movie Black Hawk Down 20 years later. H.W., what a great guy. R.I.P. In 2017, President Trump scaled back the Utah National Parks: Bears Ears National Monument by 85% and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument by 50%.

I was hoping for one of those winters when it’s in the 60s in December, but alas - that’s not happening. So I’m comforting myself by remembering warm fall hikes in Capitol Reef (Pleasant Creek Trail). . . . . . #capitolreefnationalpark #capitolreef #nps #nationalparksusa #hikingviews #hikeutah #wowutah #utahrocks #publiclands #lifeelevated #utahunique #beautahful #southernutah #visitutah #deserthiking #hikingculture #americansouthwest #utahnationalparks
Zion-it was truly a moving experience to hike and wander. Chilling cold mixed with comforting sun; it provided awe inspiring views that moved me to tears! #zion #zionnationalpark #utah #utahnationalparks #nationalpark #nationalparks #hiking #greatoutdoors #hikingphotography #photography #naturephotography
Night in the Dollhous, full moon blazing. We had a ringtail cat trying to get in our tent Thanksgivings night. #mazedistrict #mountainhardwear #desert #utahphotographer #pictureline #fullmoon #utahisrad #thanksgiving #outdoors #utahnationalparks
Desert Gold - Autumn in the redrock country is sparse, just like water is. Where ever there is sufficient water, a cottonwood may be found to add that late autumn splash of brilliant color to the red rocks and colorful buttes.
Spent the morning hiking Angels Landing at Zion National Park. Chains are bolted to the cliff, and deadly drop offs are on both sides. The view at the top is spectacular and well worth the effort. #angelslanding #zionnationalpark #utahnationalparks
Had a crazy Sunday adventure with a few friends, and we had a great time. We hiked for a few hours, jumped on many rocks, I fell on my butt, and eventually we rested on this spot in order see the sunset. We also jammed with a ukulele, and a mighty GarageBand guitar app! All in all it was great day😁. #arizonacollective #arizonahiking #southwest #americanwest #westernstates #utahnationalparks #utahphotographer #vacation #nationalpark #moabutah #travel #travelphotography #trail #nature #picoftheday #instagram #instagood #hiking #sunset #landscapephotography #natureperfection #neverstopexploring #sunsets #pictureline #winter #nikon
Those silly sunsets 🧐. One moment you find yourself fighting against the sun cause is too bright to see the road , next thing you know, you pulled the car over, and spend the next 30 minutes appreciating those simple moments. #utahunique #southwest #americanwest #westernstates #utahnationalparks #utahphotographer #vacation #nationalpark #moabutah #travel #travelphotography #trail #nature #picoftheday #instagram #instagood #hiking #sunset #landscapephotography #natureperfection #neverstopexploring #sunsets #pictureline #winter #nikon #eupolia #viewbug #tbt #pictureoftheday #snow
