I’ve been hoping to see a red fox in Yellowstone for twenty years! Finally blessed with an exciting encounter last week! This guy trotted right past me just 20 feet away. What a treat to see him so closely!

“Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” - John Muir Our final few hours in the park, stopping for the last views of waterfalls and valley vistas. It’s so hard to leave such a magnificent place, but I know we’ll be back. #untilwemeetagain #ynp #myhappyplace #adventureswithben #optoutside #nationalpark
A Yosemite trip is long overdue! #YNP
Sunday we hiked to the top of Upper Yosemite falls. Since my first trip to #YNP nearly 10yrs ago, I have wanted to conquer this hike. Roughly 8mi round trip and 2,700ft elevation gain, trekking countless switchbacks up rocky, treacherous terrain in unrelenting sun....it was epic. This was the most challenging hike I’ve ever done. It required stamina, perseverance, and a high tolerance for discomfort. But the views and personal satisfaction make it well worth the effort. I wouldn’t have enjoyed it near as much without my partner in adventure @surfer_rn. 💕 #rainbowsandunicornjuice #adventureswithben #ishouldvepackedshorts #somuchsunblock #reapplyandreapply #bucketlist #achievinggoals #optoutside #yosemitefalls #chasingwaterfalls #nationalpark
National Park Week is right up there with Shark Week to me. Currently watching Ken Burns, "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" and going through photos from my fav NP's. . . #findyourpark #nationalparkweek #gtnp #ynp #gnp #optoutside #exploremore #nationalparks

Our first time seeing the Hetch Hetchy reservoir and Wapama falls was well worth the drive out of the valley. #chasingwaterfalls #hetchhetchy #ynp #wapamafalls #optoutside #myhappyplace #adventureswithben
First half of day two spent in the valley checking out the meadows and the lower falls. #chasingwaterfalls #yosemitenationalpark #ynp #optoutside #ailmentsbedamned #adventureswithben #sceneryandselfies
Our first day in #Yosemite , stopping on our drive in for views of the valley and our first waterfall. After settling in, we headed out to Mirror Lake for our first easy hike. #chasingwaterfalls #itwaswarmerthaniexpected #manyoutfitchanges #adventureswithben #optoutside #ynp #sceneryandselfies #nationalparks #earthday

Don’t get too close! . Yeah, I hear that a lot.  And it’s no wonder that people get gored by bison in Yellowstone Park each year.  They look about as docile as you can imagine.  Take this guy for example.  We found him grazing alone along the Firehole River early one morning.  With no tourists around to agitate, and with the foggy mist and water trickling over the rocks, it was about as peaceful of a scene as you could imagine.  I stood next to him for some time, taking a few pics here and there, but really, I just took in the moment.  It was all too easy to get lulled into complacency - and I did.  I felt no danger.  However, in Yellowstone, it’s hard to keep a secret, and soon several cars showed up after seeing us pulled over to the side.  It wasn’t long before 10 people were out of their cars, armed with their selfie sticks, and began surrounding him.  The energy changed. My bison buddy wasn’t happy any longer. And honestly, I don’t know how this story ends — because I left.  But, this is exactly how people wind up gored. . Do visit the bison of Yellowstone, but please don’t be a tourist. . Bonus! Fun fact of the day: Yellowstone Park is the only place in the United States that has had a continuous herd of bison since prehistoric times — and as far as I know, it is the last herd of bison that hasn’t been interbred with cattle. ____________ #lonelybuffalo #enjoythemoment #travel  #instatravel  #tourist  #travelphotography  #traveling  #traveler  #travelingram  #travelphotographer  #wanderlust  #adventure  #travelgram  #atlantaphotographer  #atlphotographer  #nikonusa  #outdoors  #outside  #nature  #igtravel  #travelling  #wyoming #yellowstone #ynp #buffalo #bison #fog #picoftheday #photooftheday  #yellowstonenationalpark
Memories like these remind me to breathe. #ynp #UWyogetsreal
So much snow right now. It's so beautiful here. I hope you get the chance to visit this magical place #ynp #canyonvillage #home Send me your address if you want a postcard
Continuing the theme of ancient creation myths, the abstract yet real quality of the frozen waterfall in Yellowstone National Park, over on the Wyoming side, reminded me of an old text that says that Wisdom existed and played before the world existed. In 'Paradise Lost,' John Milton refers to this in saying that Wisdom's sister spoke the poem to him. Swipe through for images of the wintertime peach geothermal pools of the Norris Geyser Basin, a bison, the abstract forest after a fire, and the Bombardier that brings visitors in the winter, all at Yellowstone National Park. . . . #yellowstone #ynp #norrisgeyserbasin #wyoming #geyser #geothermal #nationalparks #findyourpark #creationmyth #johnmilton #paradiselost #abstract #mythology #fog #atmosphere #daydreaming #seedscolor #somewheremagazine #minimablu #thinkveryl #minimalmag #portbox #minimalmood #onceuponadream #indiependentmag #imaginarymagnitude #ifyouleave

#TinyTotTuesday “Live in such a way that if your children are ever asked for the definitions of kindness, integrity and loyalty, they’ll answer, “my parents.”” - Ali B. Moe Remember on this Tuesday that it’s easy to get caught up in the mumbo jumbo but remember that we have a smaller generation watching us all. So let’s be kind, have open hearts and teach these little ones good life skills. 💗 #beyooneek #yooneekphotography #yooneekphotos #YNP #yooneekphotographytribe #marylandphotographer #jessies_light #newbornphotography #childrenphotography #familyphotography #maternityphotography #risingtidesociety #shootandshare #canon #clickinmoms #boymom #girlmom #momofboth
“As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can". #yellowstonepledge #FindYourPark #NationalParkService #OptOutside #getoutstayout #bigskypic #keepitpublic #YellowstoneForever #iampubliclandsproud #greateryellowstone
Good excuse to share some joy. #nationalparkweek @yellowstonenps
Driving in at the cloak of darkness and what do we see but a glimpse of the dome, can you see it?

After several days of nice weather around the Mammoth section of Yellowstone and Gardiner, MT a big foggy snowstorm rolled in last night. Around 6pm it started to clear and there were some nice views along the dirt road drive back to the @ynpforever field campus once again! . . #ynp #ynpforever #yellowstone #yellowstonenaturalist #adamjewell #nationalparksphotographer #gardiner #gardinermt #gardinermontana #goparks #findyourpark #southwestmontana #visitmontana #visitwyoming #montana #west #nationalparks #nps #landscape #mountains #rockymountains . . http://adamjewell.com/featured/headed-to-the-yellowstone-forever-overlook-campus-adam-jewell.html
As connections across the world have expanded , our connection with Earth has diminished. 🌎 As for me, I prefer the solitude of the forests, the magnificence of the mountains and the sacredness of Earth!💕⛰ #photography #Forest #Travel #Tree #Yosemite #Nature #igphotooftheday #igphotographer #YNP #Wonder #beinwonder #Earth #justshoot #Passion #waterfall #livelife #raiseyourvibration #sacredplace #magical #shotz #yosemitefalls #beautiful #photography #vibrationalhealing
The snow makes this valley even more incredible somehow. Loving every minute of this trip!

Take the time to slow down and take in what's around you. Yellowstone is so peaceful this time of year 🤩🤩
The snows are melting and the animals are grazing, making this a perfect time to visit Yellowstone. Need help planning a trip? I can help.

At a lecture by the director of the @smithsonian I recently learned about an ice age bison (latifrons) with an 84! inch horn span (compared to 26 inch on modern bison bison). Wild to imagine these creatures with even bigger heads. • • • • #ynp #yellowstonenationalpark #publiclands #optoutside #publiclandproud #montana #buffalo #vanwithtrees #bisonbison #nps
