Driving has to be one of my favorite ways to travel. You can see so much on the way there and always stop to experience sense that you just can't get anywhere else. Some drives deserve a stop at every pull-off, and this one in Tennessee deserves no less. . .

Experiencing the raw power of Mother Nature, one waterfall at a time. . . Toccoa Falls, in Northeastern Georgia, freefalls 186 feet (which is 26 feet higher than Niagara Falls). What you see is only half. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #visittheusa #roadtripua @visittheusa #exploregeorgia @exploregeorgia #onlyingeorgia @only_in_georgia #atlantatrails @atlantatrails #wandernorthga @wandernorthga
There are few places in the world where you can see stunning natural beauty without working hard for it. Places like these, where the clouds break and the light shines on the mountains below, where small rivers turn to raging waterfalls. Places where friend and family can sit and relax or go on spectacular adventures where few have gone before. Places like these are hard to come by and truly have been graced by God. These are some of the reasons I'm so glad I finally got to #wandernorthga @wandernorthga . .

There's something special about this place and it doesn't have to do with it's history or surrounding beauty. It's a simpler place, where traditions are still alive. It's a place where the palate can be almost identical or drastically different and still create awe. This is a place that makes people want to continue traveling, and it's safe to say that I've fallen #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland. . . On lake luzern, surrounded by the foothills of Mt. Pilatus. . . #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #lakelucerneregion #mylucerne @ilove_lucerne #bealpine @thealpinists #visiteurope @visit_europe
With the winding city streets of Altstadt, the ringing bells of from church towers and and the colorful River Reuss, Lucerne is a place that everyone should visit. Proud to know I have ancestors who once settled the #lakelucerneregion . . The view from Kapellbr├╝cke, looking up the River Reuss in the heart of Lucerne. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #visiteurope @visit_europe #mylucerne @ilove_lucerne #bealpine
There are some places in the world that truly stand the tests of time, that survive through the worst. Walking across this icon was something truly special. You could see where the wood was aged and where flames had been put out, and the rocks beneath the crystal clear water. Or the 18th century paintings that decorate the interior. This is Europe at its finest. . . The historic icon of Lucerne, an 800 year old bridge made of wood. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #visiteurope @visit_europe #bealpine @thealpinists #lakelucerneregion #mylucerne @lucerne_switzerland
Some places just leave you breathtaken with their simplicity. These walls are some of the last remaining fortifications around a major European city, and they rise above the city streets. One can only imagine what it was like to wall these walls when they were first built in the 13th Century, and I couldn't help but wonder what sights were watched from up here. Even in the most complex scenes there is simplicity. . . The Museggmauer and it's 9 towers, overlooking the city of Lucerne. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #bealpine @thealpinists #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #visiteurope @visit_europe #mylucerne #lakelucerneregion @ilove_lucerne
Although I'm not much of a wildlife photographer, watching these mascots of Bern play was something worth seeing. . . The historic bear pits of B├Ąrenpark in Bern. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #ilovebern @ilove_bern #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #visiteurope @visit_europe #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #bealpine @thealpinists #unescoworldheritage @unescoworldheritage
Rooftop terraces and regal gardens; it's incredible how many different views Switzerland offers. . . The former houses of the nobility, overlooking the former peasant houses and the River Aare far below. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #visiteurope @visit_europe #ilovebern @ilove_bern #bealpine @thealpinists #unescoworldheritage @unescoworldheritage
Throughout all our time in Europe, we had seen nothing like this. Turquoise water rushing past the medieval streets of Bern. It may not be big, but some places will always remain iconic. . . The River aare, seen from the B├Ąrenpark across from the old town of Bern. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #bealpine @thealpinists #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #visiteurope @visit_europe @ilove_bern #ilovebern @unescoworldheritage #unescoworldheritage
Although Bern was a sleepy town compared to the bustle of Vienna and natural splendor of Zermatt, the views and history of the Swiss capital were just marvelous. It's no wonder they set up the Swiss parliament here. . .

Many of you have been wondering why I took up photography. While the simple answer could be to remember the beauty of the places I have seen and relive the memories associated with said places, I would be leaving out some crucial details! Photography for me is not just finding a pretty building or landscape and pressing a button down; it's about looking at something that has been immortalized, seen by many and making that same sight unique and your own. Or it's about the challenge of bringing something new to those around me and sharing my experiences. Of course I can say it's about finding something beautiful - such as a castle on a cloud filled lake surrounded by mountains - and pressing a button, but there's much more to it than that. It's about exploring the globe and making lasting impressions that are truly my own. . . Chillon Castle, a 900 year old fortress situated on an island in Lake Geneva in the region of Vaud, Switzerland. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #bealpine @thealpinists #montreuxriviera @montreuxriviera #myvaud @myvaud #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #switzerland
There's much more to travel than just seeing new places. It's about finding those places that create a sense of wonder - wonder about how many people have set foot where you are, and what events that shaped history took place there. This dock is a great example of that; While it may look dreary and cold, one can't help but to wonder how much has changed as its stood there, in its original simple form. It's when you travel to places like these that the journey becomes much more meaningful. Travel should continue to be about discovery and wonder, not the unrealistic replication of another's. . .

The world appears much much bigger when you're rising high above the clouds; find places in the world worth experiencing. . . The last stop before the summit of the Kleine Matterhorn, at Trockener Steg, 9,642'. . . #bealpine #zermatt #matterhorn @zermatt.matterhorn #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #mysummerinvalais #valais @valaiswallis #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland
It's incredible how much bigger the world is than we realize. In an age where we can communicate faster than ever before, it amazes me that there are places where it snows in May, where barns are made of stone, and where old traditions are alive and well. Even in the modern age, it still feels like nothing has ever changed. . . A small stone barn just outside of the town of Zermatt, Switzerland. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto @canonusa #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #zermatt #matterhorn @zermatt.matterhorn #mysummerinvalais #Valais @valaiswallis #bealpine @thealpinists
We arrived to the town of Zermatt on the train from Ch├╝r. For 6 hours we crossed alpine passes, rode through wildflower-filled valleys and past charming chalets in the Swiss countryside. And despite Matterhorn's imposing stature over the town of Zermatt, it can only be seen once one arrives into town. Just another reason to keep on adventuring. . . The mighty Matterhorn, which is seen from every corner throughout Zermatt. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #zermatt #matterhorn @zermatt.matterhorn #mysummerinvalais #Valais @valaiswallis #bealpine @thealpinists
Despite the stormy clouds, there is nothing like standing out and looking down into the valleys below. It's moments like these that really remind me to never stop exploring. . . A bit below the highest point in Oberalp Pass on our way to Zermatt. We had only 4 minutes before the train started on again. I think running out of a train in 30 degree weather was worth it though. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #bealpine #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #graub├╝nden @graubuenden #switzerland_vacations #switzerland
Sometimes there's something special about a place that just make you want to adventure more, live more, be more. A place where you never want to stop exploring, regardless of rain or cold temperatures. Switzerland is one of those places. . . After going the opposite direction, we finally made it to the lake in St. Moritz right before it started raining. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #inlovewithswitzerland @myswitzerland #visitswitzerland @visitswitzerland #enjoystmoritz @enjoystmoritz #bealpine #switzerland_vacations #stmoritz
