It was a misty day coming out of the Nevada desert heading east into Utah. As we were driving I noticed these fingers of God poking through and I stopped to capture the moment. How many moments do we miss simply because we do not pay attention? . . . . . . #beautifuldestinations #earthfocus #artofvisuals #fujifilm #theweekoninstagram #usinterior #thepeiplescreatives #thedailybite #throughthelens #exploretocreate #planetearth #exploremoretogether #discoverer #ourplanet #earthvisuals #briskoutdoors #worldtones #worldoftones #natgeoyourshot #ig_northamerica #earthvisuals #depthsofearth #nocoastcollective #staywildpeeps #midwestexplorers #roamtheplanet #ourplanetdaily
Last Flight if the Butterfly ———————— As I was going through some SD cards I found, I discovered this shot of this Monarch Butterfly. I was fortunate to take this shot moments before he died. As you can tell by the scars on his wings, he had some troubles along his way. Here he flexed his wings twice and then fell to his death. I feel lucky we were able to share this moment in his life. God speed little butterfly. . . . . #earth_shotz #earthfocus #ig_northamerica #pocket_world #ig_unitedstates #igworldclub #colors_of_day #splendid_earth #awesome_earthpix #highlightiowa #places_wow #captureiowa #nocoastcollective #midwestexplorers #midwestmoment #beautyofnature #explore #outdoors #jaw_dropping_shots #epic_captures #ourplanetdaily #earthofficial #thisisiowa #rsa_rural #fujifilm #travelawesome #liveadventure #iowalife #onlyiniowa
My trusted adventure partner. Milo is always up for an adventure anytime I ask. His only requirement is to allow time to sniff the many smells we encounter on our outings. Here’s to many “good smells” my friend Milo! . . . . . #beautifuldestinations #earthfocus #artofvisuals #fujifilm #theweekoninstagram #usinterior #thepeiplescreatives #thedailybite #throughthelens #exploretocreate #planetearth #exploremoretogether #discoverer #ourplanet #earthvisuals #briskoutdoors #worldtones #worldoftones #natgeoyourshot #ig_northamerica #earthvisuals #depthsofearth #nocoastcollective #staywildpeeps #highlightiowa #iowagrams #captureiowa #igiowa
Ever been to @yellowstonenps in the winter? Scrolling through my iPhone I found this lost gem and started thinking how I’d love to make a winter visit. It’s a bucket list item for me and I wonder if this could be the year? Please comment below for any tips or advice for a successful winter excursion. . . . . #yellowstonenationalpark #fyp #optoutside #nationalparkservice #roamtheplanet #nocoastcollective #adventuretime #adventureisoutthere #adventure #roamearth #earth_shotz #earth_pix #moodygrams #moody_tones #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #fujifilm_xseries #xt2 #fujifilm #fujifilmxt2 #onlyinwyoming #nationalparkgeek #wyomingmagazine #instapic
The family that hikes together, stays together. ———————- Navajo loop @brycecanyonnps_gov is a fairly family friendly trail that offers much to see and experience while giving you a good sense of what this particular National Park has to offer. I was particularly amused by he little boy as he passed us by. This hike he was “T-Rex on the prowl” he told me, (everyone he saw). This trail is pretty great for getting your imagination up and running.. . . . . #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #nocoastcollective #brycenationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalgeographic #natgeotravel #simply_amazing #roam #roamtheplanet #adventuretime #adventureisoutthere #outdoor #hiker #trekker #hike_utah #werutah #onlyinutah #utahgram #fyp #optoutside #xplore #explorepage #exploring_shotz #exploretheworld #utahisrad #utahlife
Wanna be alone? While visiting North Dakota this summer, I wanted to experience the feeling of total isolation that pioneers must have felt at times during their travels west. So I found an old trail in one of our National Grasslands. I drove in 5 or so miles to simply sit, listen and enjoy the sunset. So glad I did. Where’s your favorite place for quiet? . . . . . #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #nocoastcollective #iowan #iowaphotographer #gamesoftones #artistsoninstagram #visualsoflife #visualscollective #visualsofearth #moodygrams #simply_amazing #artofvisuals #onlyinnorthdakota #northdakotalife #roamtheplanet #xplore #fujifilmxt2 #fujifilm #fujifilm_xseries #instagood #picoftheday #adventuretime #adventureisoutthere #sunset_pics #sunset_vision #naturephotography #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot
I’ve always found it odd that years ago, people would simply bring their old vehicles to pasture or an old tree lined grove and simply leave em there. Not only is it pollution, but to leave it abandoned has always astonished me. Then I think, what story could this old pick up tell? I found this guy in a field in south central Iowa. It would be cool to restore. . . . . #exploremag #nocoastcollective #steller_shots #adventuretime #simply_amazing #fujifilm #fujixseries #xt2 #rsa_rust #rsa_rural #highlightiowa #onlyiniowa #iowagrams #iowalife #iowaphotographer #iowaoutdoors #iowafarm #thisisiowa #travel_iowa #midwestlife #midwestexplorers #midwestmoment #abandoned #wild #trucks #trucksgonewild #trucksdaily #truckart
5:30 am in July @yosemitenps is a magical time in the park. At that time of day it’s just you, other photographers and the trash collectors. It’s a time before the hoards of tourists infiltrate the park and its when the park speaks loudest to my soul. If you’re ever visiting, get up early. You’ll be glad you did. . . . . #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #nationalparkgeek #fyp #nocoastcollective #earthpix #earthshotz #roam #roamtheplanet #onlyincalifornia #midwestexplorer #artifvisuals #visualsoflife #visualsofearth #iowaphotographer #fujifilm #fujifilmxt2 #fujixseries #optoutside #simply_amazing #wild #instaphoto #iowagrams #rsa_naturepics #natgeotravel #welivetoexplore #exploremag #theoutbound #steller_shots
Hell’s Half Acre Traveling the backroads of Wyoming I discovered this little gem. Hell’s Half Acre is a location that has been concerned as a location where Native American tribes would drive herds of Bison over the cliff for easy slaughter. For me, it’s just another reason to keep coming back to Wyoming to explore. See you next spring Wyoming! . . . . . . #wyoming #onlyinwyoming #nationalparkgeek #midwestexplorers #wyominglife #simply_amazing #adventure #adventurer #adventuretime #midwestexplorers #xt2 #fujifilm_xseries lovers #nocoastcollective #roamtheplanet #ig_countryside #welivetoexplore #igersmidwest #roam #roamtheplanet #discoverwyoming #artofvisuals #visual #instagram #earthpix #earth_shotz
While traveling through Wyoming I stopped at a rest area to do rest area business. When returning to my car, a lightening show was lighting up the sky in a very ominous way. So before it started hailing, I set up my tripod and tried to capture the mood. Dark sky’s cometh! . . . . . #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #fujifilm_xseries #xt2 #lighteningseries #darkskys #moodygrams #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #visualsofearth #simply_amazing #nocoastcollective #earthpix #earthshots #rsa_dark #rsa_sky
Petroglyphs @dinosaurnps are scattered throughout the park. These art creations are what is left of the Fremont peoples of Utah and surrounding area. Petroglyphs are fun to explore and fun to imagine the meaning behind the carvings. Some believe that they have religious or ceremonial meanings. Others believe they were used to Mark tribe territories. The elementary school teacher in me think it’s simply the young doodling😊 either way of what you believe, take a trip to the many national parks and monuments and go petroglyph hunting. You’ll be glad you did. . . . . . #fyp #nocoastcollective #adventureisoutthere #fujifilm_xseries #dinosaurenationalmonumemt #nationalparkgeek #roam #roamtheplanet #onlyinutah #werutah #petroglyphs #petroglyph #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #visualart #visual_world #visualsoflife #visualambassadors #utahgram #wild #rsa_folknature #xt2 #fujifilm_us #natgeotravel #outdoormagazine #iowaoutdoors #iowaoutdoorsmagazine #ouriowa #nationalparkservice
“Cascading torrents rush downhill. The water travels with a will. The raging sound is loud and shrill. It’s never still. It’s never still. “ - Terry Hoffman ———————— Just love the various waterfalls you’ll find @yellowstonenps .. . . . . #adventureisoutthere #rsa_naturepics #rsa_nature #fujifilm_xseries #fujifilm #fujixt2 #nocoastcollective #roamtheplanet #roam #optoutside #iowaphotographer #landscapephotography #moodygrams #earthpix #waterfallsofinstagram #printsforsale #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #wyominglife #travelwyoming #onlyinwyoming #yellowstonenationalpark #rei #rei1440project #look303 #fyp
Mesquite Flat Dunes These dunes are the best known and easiest to visit in the national park. Located in central Death Valley near Stovepipe Wells, access is from Hwy. 190 or from the unpaved Sand Dunes Road. Although the highest dune rises only about 100 feet, the dunes actually cover a vast area. This dune field includes three types of dunes: crescent, linear, and star shaped. Polygon-cracked clay of an ancient lakebed forms the floor. Mesquite trees have created large hummocks that provide stable habitats for wildlife. ——————————— although I was on a mission to visit some ghost towns, I could only stop from the highway to grab this shot. I’m thinking a return visit to @deathvalleynps is in order. . . . . #adventureisoutthere #rsa_naturepics #rsa_nature #fujifilm_xseries #nationalparkgeek #deathvalleynationalpark #fyp #optiutside #desert #midwestexplorers #iowaphotographer #simply_amazing #nocoastcollective #roamtheplanet #roam #mountainviews #xplore #moodygrams #earthpix #nevadatourism #onlyinnevada #wild #lookoftheday #rsa_desert #outdoor #natgeotravel #natgeolandscape #outdoorphotography #outdoorlifemagazine
