The view from above Vernal Falls in @yosemitenps. The Merced river first formed as the Sierra Nevada rose about 10 million years ago, and sediment eroded from its canyon helped form the flat floor of the San Joaquin Valley. Glaciation during the Ice Ages carved the high elevation parts of the watershed, including Yosemite Valley, into their present shape. Historically, there was an extensive riparian zone which provided habitat for millions of migrating birds, and the river had one of the southernmost runs of chinook salmon in North America. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yosemitenationalpark #california #travels #instatravels #yosemite #nature #outdoors #emeraldpool #naturephotography #canon #vernalfalls #canonphotography #canon5dmarkiii #yosemitevalley #mercedriver #misttrail #ynp #visityosemite #californiatour #sierranevada #sierranevadas #mountain #mountains

“For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People.” // By far one of my favorite things in @yellowstonenps. The views around the arch are breathtaking and for me it’s the landmark that takes me to my happy place! 💚💛 // #findyourpark #yellowstone #nationalparks #nps #ynp #montanamoment #visitgardinermt #rooseveltarch #gatewaytoyellowstone #instagood #parkpics #yellowstonenationalpark #teddyroosevelt #montana #adventure #getlost #vacation #instayellowstone #yellowstonepledge

Self love time! This is one of my favorite pictures taken of me. It's from this past summer's road trip to Yosemite National Park. Happiness. 6/2018 - "Still got these scars from cutting my wrists when I thought that life was finished. Now, they remind me what my lows look like. Now, I know the sky's the limit. Okay - Never claimed to be perfect. That's an impossible dream. I'm just saying that I'm worth it, that's the responsible thing. Spent half my life trying to find my light, from outside sources, while the only voice that mattered came from me..." Sa-roc - "Forever" #happiness #yosemite #ynp #camping #selflove #love

(Not the) Morning Glory . Named after the flower that its colour resembled. In the 1940’s the hot spring had a blue hue but the water’s colour changed. That’s right, blue not the colour you see here. Continue reading to see why and how this blue hue changed to this dramatic colour that we see now
.
The pool took a distinctive hue green with orange and yellow edges, which you see here. Visitors to Yellowstone have been known to throw pennies, rocks and all sorts of garbage into Morning Glory. Researchers were able to prove that the debris ultimately clogged up parts of the heat source hidden beneath the water’s surface and caused the pool’s temperature to lower. At a lower temperature the pool became a happy home to photosynthetic microorganisms that probably didn’t live there before . Follow us on this journey as we share our memorable experience with you .

Image from Big Oak Flat Rd as the Ferguson Fire burned toward Turtleback Dome. I was making some images when an engine assigned to the fire came through the first tunnel. At first I thought the frame was ruined, but turns out the light was pretty dramatic and the cooler tones of the pickup headlights balanced out the warm tones of the fire. Sometimes accidental images can be the most interesting. . . . #calfire #forestfire #usfs #fireseason #wildfires #californiafires #fineartprints #prints #climatereality #climatechangeart #photojournalist #photographyisart #longexposure #longexposureshots #nightphotoshoot #writersgram #firephotography #californiafire #photoprint #wallart #fergusonfire #yosemite #yosemitenp #sierras #sierranevada #YNP

Me being stoked that I just saw my first grizzly bear and a pack of wolves (with pups!) at the SAME time 100 yards or so from each other at dusk in Yellowstone! 🐺🐻 One of the most memorable moments of my life and why I love love love the wild & all it has to offer. 🌒 |📍 Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park, WY, USA🌾 ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ 🌄 #sheisnotlost #optoutside #wolves #thatswyoming #yellowstonenationalpark #dametraveler #mountaingirls #wildernessculture #likeamountaingirl #liveoutdoors #femmetravel #findyourpark #adventurethatislife #mountainstories #girlsthatwander #adventurenthusiasts #womenwhoexplore #iammissadventure #womentravel #yellowstoneforever #discover_wyoming #adventures #hiking #adventurer #ynp #mountains #adventureculture #outside_project #bears @yellowstonenps @nationalparkservice @nationalparkobsessed @nationalparklife
In just the last week I've seen waterfalls big and small, ancient Buffalo hunting grounds, suspension bridges over roiling rapids, abandoned gold mines, and more grand views than I can count. I think I'll like this mountainous place. #montana #montanalife #hikingadventures #ynp #nationalpark
I really like the black and white look with bison. Thanks @huntfishharvestcook for the reminder.

Alright Internet I need your help. Help me find these two. This was taken at Taft Point, in Yosemite National Park on October 6th, 2018. I took this photo and would love for them to find it.

I see you.
Throwback to May in Yosemite. This was from one of my very first real planned night adventures miles away from home. Driving through the dark valley I admit I was a little apprehensive about the whole thing knowing that bears could possibly be roaming around the park nearby. I’m normally not afraid but this time I kind of was. Nonetheless I was on a mission to come home with a capture of the Milky Way from one of my all time favorite National Parks. That fear went away as soon as I saw the Milky Way rising above the iconic Half Dome just as I pulled in to my destination. One of my most memorable nights ever. 🐻🌌🏞 . . . . . . . . #yosemitenationalpark #ynp #findyourpark #yosemite_national_park #nationalparkgeek #thenationalparkspass #nature #caliexplored #milkyway #nightsky #darksky #astrophoto #adventureculture #mountainlove #exploretocreate #elementsofwild #wildernessculture #nightphotography #astrophotogrphy #starrynight #nightshooterz #awesomeearth #explore #longexposure #nightscaper #landscape_captures #wanderlust #adventure
“The wild ram embodies the mystery and magic of the mountains, the rocky canyons, the snowy peaks, the fragrant alpine meadows, the gray slide rock, the icy, dancing rills fed by snowbank and glacier, the sweet, clean air of the high places, and the sense of being alone on the top of the world with the eagles, the marmots, and the wild sheep themselves.” ~ The Bighorn | March 1960
Some fall magic in the boiling river. That place is primal! Stepping through ice cold, snow-melt water mixed with pockets of 140° water from the incoming hot springs. Slightly miserable until you find a perfect soaking spot - but definitely worth it. . . . . #wanderlust #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #ynp #wearethewild #livewylder #liveauthentic #whatgetsyououtdoors #ourwild #lovenature #adventuredog #liveyouradventure #getoutstayout #neverstopexploring #rei1440project #adventurethatislife #slowliving #optoutside #explore #outwest #ofthewest #hiking #hikingadventures #explore #lettheoutsidein #406 #montanamoment #boilingriver #hotsprings #stanleyness #ad

Thinking of Yosemite today after watching #FreeSolo seemed like a good time to post some old photos, taken on old camera gear, but the views there are so amazing it just doesn’t matter. Yes, I know in the movie Alex is climbing El Cap, but I’m just not that excited about the quality of my photos of that great rock. Guess I’ll just have to go back! . . . . #Yosemite #YNP #NPS #California #Sierras #SierraNevada #HalfDome #GlacierPoint #VernalFalls #NevadaFalls #LittleYosemiteValley #VistaPoint #adventure #Granite #granodiorite #Pluton #GlacialCutValley #weathering #erosion #geology
Have you ever seen what appears to be moss growing on the bark of many of the conifers in the Sierra National Forest? It is called "Wolf Lichen"; this poisonous Lichen contains the yellow pigment vulpinic acid and was once used in Europe to poison wolves and foxes. #sierra #sierranationalforest #sierranevada #ponderosa #sugarpine #jefferypine #yosemite #ynp #wolflichen #lichen #hiking #outdoor #science #trees #fire

Often, we run to places like this seeking that most cathartic of free spirits: Solitude. Along the way though, we’re more likely than not to run into her sister Loneliness first. Sometimes, we shy away from her and never reach that place we were aiming for in the first place. The road may be long, but the end result is worth it. #yellowstone #geysers #nationalparks #ynp #fall #rockymountainhigh #nofilter #sundayfunday

Big tree hunter Carl Casey with the new National Champion black oak (Quercus kelloggii).

Thermophiles . Many of the bright colours found in Yellowstone’s hydrothermal basins come from thermophiles - microorganisms that thrive in hot temperatures. Trillions of microorganisms are grouped together which makes them appears as masses of colour . Follow us on this journey as we share our memorable experience with you .
