I cannot wait til the lazy, not so lazy, days of summer. Spending time with family, time on the road with new adventures and a time to revitalize my soul. Winter it’s been fun and all, but I’ve had enough. It’s summers teun now🤙🏻. . . . . . #np10k #igrefined #lensbible #igshotz #earth_shotz #earth_delux #travelstoke #awesupply #earthvisuals #globetravel #earthofficial #splendid_earth #createscenery #nationalparklife #destinationearth #fujifilm_xt2 #wonderful_places #theglobewonderer #tourtheplanet #nationalearth #adventureaddictz #dreamworldimages #landscape #artofvisuals #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #natgeotravel #roamtheplanet #nocoastcollective
“Say hello to my little friend!” This guy just begged to have his picture taken.....or was begging for food. He followed us for quite awhile and would pose like this every time we stopped. Which brings me to my point. Yes these creatures, nature’s creatures, are cute, however, they are “wild” animals that need to stay wild. I see this in many of my travels, people feeding wild animals. PLEASE DONT! ultimately what you’re doing is leading that animal to distraction. When wild animals loose their fear of humans is when humans gets hurt then humans have to “put down” that animal. Now, will that happen to this little guy? I doubt it, but the way he followed us, I could see him follow someone into the parking lot and possibly get ran over. Leave no trace doesn’t only refer to packing out trash, it also refers to leaving wild animals alone and observe only! . . Remember: when you feed a wild animal, you’re killing a wild animal! . . . . #leavenotrace #brycecanyonnationalpark #np10k #igrefined #lensbible #igshotz #earth_shotz #earth_delux #travelstoke #awesupply #earthvisuals #globetravel #earthofficial #splendid_earth #createscenery #nationalparklife #destinationearth #fujifilm_xt2 #wonderful_places #theglobewonderer #tourtheplanet #nationalearth #adventureaddictz #dreamworldimages #landscape #artofvisuals #natgeotravel #roamtheplanet #nocoastcollective
Spring is here as well as the beginning of new life. Last spring I almost stepped on this little guy @devilstowernps his instinctual survival technique to stay totally motionless was in high gear that day. A cool experience indeed. ——————————- This shot was taken on the edge of a road. I was 30 or 40 feet away allowing for proper distance and respect of this baby Deer. It’s important to remember and respect the personal space of wildlife when you are in their home. Sleep on baby deer! . . . . . . #np10k #igrefined #lensbible #igshotz #deer #devilstower #wildlifeconservation #awesupply #earthvisuals #wildlifephotography #earthofficial #splendid_earth #createscenery #nationalparklife #destinationearth #fujifilm_xt2 #wonderful_places #theglobewonderer #tourtheplanet #nationalearth #adventureaddictz #dreamworldimages #nationalparkgeek #artofvisuals #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #natgeotravel #roamtheplanet #nocoastcollective
Driving through the desert there’s not a lot to see UNLESS you look. It widened and vastness can be an illusion of nothingness, but as you can see there’s quite a lot to look at. The mountains, the farm, or even the shadows of the clouds on the ground. I didn’t get to spend as much time as I liked exploring the desert, but it did leave a lasting impact. Until I return Mr. Desert. . . . . . #extraterrestrialhighway #nevada #nevadagram #midwestexplorers #optoutside #adventure #adventureisoutthere #roadtrip #rpod #fujifilm_xt2 #fujifilm_xseries #adventurer #natgeotravel #natgeotraveller #rsa_landscape #discover #ourplanet #staywildpeeps #gramslayers #webstagram #naturegram #nocoastcollective #roamtheplanet #roam #welivetoexplore #ig_nevada #ig_desertlovers #sierranevada #travelnevada
Trying to nail down a summer vibe. I do not know the name of this particular flower, this shot was captured on a warm July morning on a trail heading to Devils Post Pile in California. If anyone knows, please post in my comments, I’d love to know. Anywho, won’t be long until summer hikes are on my itinerary. . . . . . . #summertime #hike #nature #gramslayers #earthfocus #artofvisuals #fujifilm_xt2 #theweekoninstagram #usinterior #thepeoplescreatives #thedailybite #throughthelens #exploretocreate #planetearth #exploremoretogether #discoverer #ourplanet #earthvisuals #briskoutdoors #worldtones #worldoftones #earthvisuals #nocoastcollective #staywildpeeps #ourplanitdaily #instanature #mothernature #naturegram #fujifilm_xseries #igrefined
Somewhere in Utah lies the fictitious lost gold of San Francisco Pete! He was a renegade prospector out of California who went East to escape prosecution. It is rumored that he,quote,”tangled with the wrong sorts of people along the interior reef of the Utah Territory.” Here we are in search of SF Pete’s lost gold on old dirt roads of @capitolreefnationalpark btw, we didn’t find it! . . . . . . . . #np10k #igrefined #lensbible #igshotz #earth_shotz #earth_delux #travelstoke #awesupply #earthvisuals #globetravel #earthofficial #splendid_earth #createscenery #nationalparklife #destinationearth #fujifilm_xt2 #wonderful_places #theglobewonderer #tourtheplanet #nationalearth #adventureaddictz #dreamworldimages #landscape #artofvisuals #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #natgeotravel #roamtheplanet #nocoastcollective
Somewhere on the middle of Wyoming, in fact I was lost I missed a turn in the early morning, anyway, as I pulled over checking my map I noticed the scene that was going off just outside my window. Man we live on a marvelous planet, it’s the little things like a spectacular sunrise and a singular tree that really sets my soul a fire! . . . . . . . #beautifuldestinations #earthfocus #artofvisuals #fujifilm_xt2 #theweekoninstagram #usinterior #thepeoplescreatives #thedailybite #throughthelens #exploretocreate #planetearth #exploremoretogether #discoverer #ourplanet #earthvisuals #briskoutdoors #worldtones #worldoftones #natgeoyourshot #ig_northamerica #earthvisuals #depthsofearth #nocoastcollective #staywildpeeps #landscapelovers #landscape_captures #ig_captures_nature #midwestexplorer #simplyamazing
With the return of our song birds, longer days, and warmer weather, I’m itchin for some mountain hikes, national parks and bird watching. This little blue bird spotted along Moulten Road @grandtetonnationalpark stopped long enough to say “Hi👋” so I took his picture. . . . . . . . #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #nocoastcollective #look303 #roam #roamtheplanet #moodygrams #earthpix #earthshots #visualsoflife #visualsofearth #natgeotravel #visualgang #midwestexplorers #instagood #instagram #fujifilm_xt2 #fuji_xseries #fujifilm #adventure #adventureisoutthere #adventure365 #xplore #optoutside #simply_amazing #wyomingwildlife #birdwatching #birdlife #natgeowild #wildlifephotography
6-8 weeks away from greener and brighter days. Winter it’s been fun and we’ll see you next year.

Last nights sunset was on fire! This shot captures the beginning of a lonely windmill as I was coming over a ridge. Signs of spring are beginning to show everywhere you look, including the cloud cover and sunset show. Finally sunsets are more than a dingy grey! Come on spring, I’m ready! ——————————————— Who else is ready for spring? . . . . . . . #ia365 #exploringiowa #thisisiowa #iowalife #igersmidwest #highlightiowa #onlyiniowa #captureiowa #iowagrams #iowaphotographer #nocoastcollective #puremidwest #igersmidwest #gameoftones #artofvisusls #fijifilm_xt2 #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers
Ancient Sandhills being eroded by wind and rain make for some really cool formations. These are located deep in the badlands of North Dakota. @theodorerooseveltnps has many fun areas to explore and loose yourself with your imagination. This location is one of those. I’m starting to think about summer adventures, in the comments tell me your favorite adventure destination, I might just visit! . . . . . . #np10k #igrefined #nationalparklife #igshotz #earth_shotz #earth_delux #travelstoke #nationalparksusa #earthvisuals #nationalparkgeek #earthofficial #splendid_earth #createscenery #nationalparklife #destinationearth #fujifilm_xt2 #wonderful_places #theglobewonderer #tourtheplanet #nationalearth #adventureaddictz #dreamworldimages #landscape #artofvisuals #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #natgeotravel #roamtheplanet #nocoastcollective
Many times when I’m out adventuring I’m so focused on the landscape, setting up compositions, or lighting I often times forget to look up or down. This particular shot came when I chose to look down. I was on the ground setting up s shot at Mono Lake in California and I happened to see movement at my feet and here was this little guy checking me out. I think he wanted his picture taken📸 . . . . . #earth_shotz #earthfocus #ig_northamerica #pocket_world #ig_unitedstates #igworldclub #colors_of_day #splendid_earth #awesome_earthpix #places_wow #nocoastcollective #midwestexplorers #midwestmoment #beautyofnature #explore #outdoors #jaw_dropping_shots #epic_captures #ourplanetdaily #earthofficial #rsa_naturepics #fujifilm_2 #travelawesome #liveadventure #naturesbestphotomagazine #simply_amazing #lizardsofinstagram #lizards #optoutside #monolake
Last week much of the Midwest received 2-3” of rain. With the ground still frozen the rain had nowhere to go flooding many of the area watersheds. With this happening, it lifted pond and river ice and deposited it upon the ground in various geometric shapes. Here is such a shot of deposited ice 150 yards away from the Floyd River in Alton Iowa. The second shot is another shot of deposited ice and debris upon the 7th hole of the local Frisbee golf course. . .many prayers to those who have been effected by flooding! . . . . . . #moodygrams #traveliowa #ig_iowa #thisisiowa #ouriowa #thisisiowa #exploreiowa #iowagrown #visitiowa #iowagram #exploreiowa #fujifilm_xt2 #igiowa #iowagram #midwestmoment #midwestexplorer #midwestexplors #iowan #adventureisoutthere #highlightiowa #exploretocreate #onlyiniowa #ia365 #iowa_lovers #nocoastcollective #roamtheplanet #ig_countryside #welivetoexplore #igersmidwest #iowagrams #captureiowa

It won’t be long and the snow will melt away and trails will once again be green and easily traversable. 🏃🏼‍♂️ This time of year is always tough for me. Excited for upcoming adventures and tough because I have to wait. Anywho, I’ll be out this summer exploring away, where you all headed? . . . . . . #beautifuldestinations #earthfocus #artofvisuals #hiking #hikeyourownhike #usinterior #thepeoplescreatives #thedailybite #hikingadventures #exploretocreate #planetearth #exploremoretogether #discoverer #ourplanet #earthvisuals #briskoutdoors #worldtones #worldoftones #natgeoyourshot #ig_northamerica #earthvisuals #depthsofearth #nocoastcollective #staywildpeeps #adventuretime #adventureisoutthere #optoutside
