Get low, get off the road, find your own angle. There were 10-15 people on the bridge in Zion taking the same shot (of course I had to take it too). It is definitely “iconic”, but it’s nice to have your own version too!
My first trip after school was to this fantastic national park, on the start of national park week no less! In view is the Delicate Arch with the mid-afternoon sun passing through, and a view of the valley stretching behind in the distance. This was one of the busier arches we visited, and I can totally see why! . . #longexposure_shots #earthfocus #utah #westbysouthwest #findyourpark #ig_shotz #agameof10k #nationalparkgeek #exceptional_pictures #youtah #master_shots #awesome_earthpix #thevisualcollective #optoutside #long_exposure #yesvisitutah #jaw_dropping_shots #exceptional_pictures #longexpoelite #discoverearth #naturalutah #werutah #agameoftones #puresw #depthsofearth #earth_shotz #utahisrad #saltlakecity #werutah
Off the beaten path and completely tourist free is this super cool tunnel arch!😎You can climb up to it and walk completely through to the other side. One more of the 2,000 arches in Arches National Park. If it wasn’t for @altaroberto we wouldn’t have even know it was there! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 #htwtravel #gooutside #archesnationalpark #americathebeautiful #utah #moab #arches #naturephotography #nature #iamtb #travellover #travelbug #travelcouple #traveltheworld #america #findyourpark #mytravelgram #weekendaway #archesnps #beautiful #womenwhoexplore #peoplewhohike #yesvisitutah #utahgram #instatravel #passionpassport #wonderlust #youtah #naturalutah #weliveelevated

The Spiral Jetty was built in 1970 by Robert Smithson on the North shore of the Great Salt Lake. It was built using six thousand tons of basalt rocks. The coil is 1,500 feet long and 15 feet wide. Soon after it was built it was submerged by the lake for about 30 years. But due to drought conditions over the last few years, the lake is now receding farther away each year. . This photo along with some other of my Great Salt Lake photos are currently on display at the Antelope Island State Park Visitor Center until May 31, 2018.

Thirsty travellers in the Utah desert beware - those shimmery lakes in the distance are not potable pools of water. Neither are they a mirage. They’re actually evaporation pools used to collect potassium for use in fertilisers. Up close, they’re a vibrant and very toxic cerulean blue. Do they remind anyone else of the beautiful stepped rice terraces of Yunnan, China?

@enthusiasticaboutlife has the right #womenwhohikeutah vibes going on!
I’ve been adventuring with these babes since the 90’s, so our walk down memory lane is more like a marathon.
We’re fallin’ for this gorgeous weather. Water you fallin’ for?📷: @heyguystudios
What better way to see the Milky Way core for the first time in 2018 than with one of the darkest skies in America? I headed out at 2am from my Airbnb and began my drive on the scenic Route 24, which cuts through a majority of Capitol Reef. I passed by the old Mormon village and headed down the 10-mile scenic drive after it. During my entire two hour expedition I didn’t see a single human soul; not even a passing car or someone’s headlights in the distance...nothing. It was truly surreal. There were many moments where it was so silent outside that my ears began to ring from receiving no other stimulation. What a magical, magical place. . . . . . . . #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #utah #utahoutdoors #adventurefreaks #utahisrad #weareutah #withmytamron #youtah #utahunique #nationalparkgeek #nationalparks #outside_project #nikon100 #utahunique #landscapephotography #tamron #igsouthwest #capitolreef #capitolreefnationalpark #tamron1530 #milkywaychasers #astrophotography #madewithmefoto #panorama #southbysouthwest #astronomy
The arches loom overhead formidable, yet delicate. They are both otherworldly and approachable, inviting you to scramble through them, perch on their precipices, and reimagine your red dusty hands as having just climbed on Mars.* . In learning how these arches were formed, I got to thinking about how we are formed. Who we think we are as people, and what makes us “us.” How did I become “me” while you are “you”? It’s a bit like these arches. . Grains of sand are compressed to form sandstone. Something happens (usually moisture, but also trauma) and weathering and erosion start to eat away at that spot. Slowly, like really slowly, a hole is made and just keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger until boom 💥 arched! (Park Ranger Jaime at your service. 👩🏼‍🌾) . I think that’s kind of how we—me as “me” and you as “you”—are formed too. Traumas happen that weaken or even tear away a part of us. And sometimes we’re left with nothing but a big gaping hole. But it’s the traumas that define us. Now, I wouldn’t be “me” without the loss of my mom. You? Would you be “you” without that awful breakup, or scary move, or job you got fired from? Without the lessons you learned or perspectives you gained? I think, no matter how delightful, you would still be “you” without that glorious golden afternoon in the sun or that intoxicating, velvety sip of perfectly roasted coffee or that gleeful descent down the roller coaster’s hill. Those do not define us; our traumas, our struggles, our moments of inadequacy and weakness—and our triumphs over them—do. . So, at our most personal core we are just like these arches: held together by the gaping holes left by our traumas and more beautiful and unique because of it. . *Please consult with a local @nationalparkservice ranger before climbing on the arches. Like us, they too can be fragile. . . . . . #outwardbound #getoutstayout #discoverearth #neverstopexploring #loveandloss #grief #griefsupport #griefgram #captureyourgrief #griefjourney #foreverloved #archesnationalpark #keepitwild #theoutbound #dametraveler #portraits_mf #liveauthentic #missingmom #nationalparkgeek #utah #yesvisitutah #youtah #moab #utahisrad #thegrievingglobetrotter
Beautiful mom and daughter joined us last Saturday for a free hiking tour in Bells Canyon. You can jump on this tour too! Just send a DM!
Want a trail so easy - and fun - that even a 2yo boy and 8 week old puppy can do it without help?? And one that gets those hiking juices flowing for bigger and better hikes?? Well, #thegrotto up #paysoncanyon is the PERFECT trail for all. We all love it for the many log bridges, built in log stairs, shade and small stream crossings and, of course, the waterfall at the end! It’s the perfect little (just over a quarter mile each way) hike that requires no preparation. Have you been? #wanderingfamilies
Mother Earth's ecosystems are as vast & beautiful as her views, so let's take care of her🖖 .

Those clouds rolling in on our way down from Angel’s Landing brought heavy rains. Although it meant we wouldn’t be hiking the narrows we did get to see Zion in flood. Waterfalls gush from the walls and all of a sudden these canyons and geologic structures make a lot more sense. So cool!! . . . . . #byriverpine #travelblog #homeiswhereyouparkit #headingwest #vanlife #hiking #camperlife #roadtrip #staywild #ontheroad #camping #outdoors #bluesky #colorfulmountains #landscapephotography #angelslanding #zionnationalpark #findyourpark #reformlife #adventuremobile #homeonwheels #getoutside #enjoythemoment #youtah #visitutah #Outdoorsy #neveridle #campmobile
BRYCE! Holy hell.
Little Toki touching down on a classic! Have you honestly ever seen anything so cute?? 🐕 #CanyoneeringCanine
Showing mom glimpses of Echo canyon has her itching to go canyoneering.
The next National Park on my list: Arches. From Microsoft Windows screen savers to gas station calendars and more, I had seen images of the iconic delicate arch countless times. Nothing compared to finally making the hike up and seeing it in person . . . #parkweek #archesnationalpark #archesnp #moab #utahisrad #utahisbeautiful #alphacollective #adventureisoutthere #lifeelevated #youtah #utahphotographer #utahphotography #delicatearch #nps #nationalpark

VALLEY OF LIGHT || Morning light illuminating the hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park with a crescent moon rising above. . I was fortunate to have the opportunity to visit this amazing place recently and was blown away by the natural beauty of the rugged landscape.

Love the mood in this photo stunning📷😍 inspired by @ianharlandphoto
Ok, ok, I’ll finally admit I’m excited for summer. There is nothing like packing up the car with everything you need and wandering thru the desert for days - snowboarding is still my favorite tho 🤫
We had Maya and Ghundor already when we decided we wanted to start fostering. Going into it we agreed we were only going to have our two dogs and would not get a third. Every time I went to the shelter I would pick up a small older chihuahua or a dog I just knew we would be a pit stop along the way to their actual home. Thomas would go to pick up an overnight visitor and come back with two puppies! The day we were at the shelter together before Thanksgiving to get our house guest for the weekend I was standing in front of Watz's kennel and pointing at the one behind him. It was an older dog huffing and puffing as he walked. Thomas of course said no way let's foster this little dude, he looks fun! Watz happened to be running around with an extreme wag to his tail. Easily making me agree Watz came home with us. We both failed that agreement not to get a third dog since Watz never left... . . . . . #nuzzlesalumni #wherelovewins #lyonpacklife
If you look long enough, this scenic landscape begins to look like an abstract painting. The landscapes in this area were so overwhelming and so breathtaking in the same instance. In every direction, mountain bikers, backpackers, and dirtbags were exploring the wonders of this magnificent natural area. Beauty like this certainly needs protection. This Land is Your Land.
Sand Dune Arch was one of my favorite arches from Arches National Park, just look at the colors! This arch is easily accessible for anyone that wants to see it. It is described as an ‘easy stroll’ from the parking lot. Great for families and those that don’t want to do long hikes. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 #htwtravel #gooutside #archesnationalpark #americathebeautiful #utah #moab #arches #naturephotography #nature #mindblown #travellover #travelbug #travelcouple #traveltheworld #america #findyourpark #mytravelgram #weekendaway #archesnps #beautiful #womenwhoexplore #peoplewhohike #yesvisitutah #utahgram #womenwhoexplore #thetravellerwomen #wonderlust #youtah #naturalutah #weliveelevated
“But if we learn to think of it as anticipation, as learning, as growing, if we think of the time we spend waiting for the big things of life as an opportunity instead of a passing of time, what wonderful horizons open out!” (Anna Neagle), Zions National Park Tunnel, #youtah #utahgram #utah #pictureline #utahdotcom #zionsnationalpark #nationalparkgeek #xputah #exploreutah #werutah #utahunique #beautifulutah
