ANGELS LANDING 😍 This hike taught me a lot about myself. About what Im capable of. About how far I can and should push myself. About how quickly you can hit your goals if you set your mind to it. Its a personal favorite. I got to hike it twice last year Here is to many more times with new friends this year! #angelslanding #zion #nationalparkobsessed #nationalparkgeek #nationalparks #nps #unlikelyhikers #diversifyoutdoors #findyourpark #zionnationalpark

Government shutdown will not stop our education taking place here in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem!

The Emotional Rollercoaster hike: excitement for a sunset adventure; disappointment as unforecasted fog obliterated views the whole way up; ecstasy when the clouds cleared for this fleeting moment; gratitude for arriving at just the right time before fog rolled back in; dread at encountering a pair of eyes glowing in the dark as we descended by headlamp; relief when we finally realized it was only a deer; warm fuzzies for more incredible memories with Rainier + good company with @willrunforwhisky to share the ups and downs~

A large Florida Alligator eyes me sleepily near a trail at Everglades National Park. I watched a fascinating program tonight on PBSs American Experience called The Swamp. Its about south Florida, the many mistakes man has made in his attempt to drain the swamp and turn it into something humanity considers more productive, and how we really mucked it up. Its a couple hours, but gives you insight into the amazing ecosystem of the Everglades. When will we ever learn that natures balance is delicate and that when we try to improve on nature it rarely reaps rewards? -•••- . . . #animal_captures #exclusive_wildlife #tv_fauna #splendid_animals #animalelite #animalsmood #all_animals_addiction #evergladesnationalpark #alligator #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #nb_nature_brilliance #tgif_nature #rebelsunited_nature #nature_sultans #excellent_nature #tnhusa #nature_of_our_world #picturetokeep_nature #nature_perfection #findyourpark

My 15th National Park, Canyonlands. Unfortunately, the hike to this arch is over 5 miles one way, so... By the time we arrived after the drive down from Moab, the sun was in a really awkward place. Time to do a lens flare! I like to think this inspired the JJ Abrams Star Trek... And a special thanks to both people who got and laughed at my joke. #druidarch #canyonlandsnationalpark #canyonlands #needlesdistrict #arch #druidarch #utah #nps #findyourpark #hiking #lensflare #adventure

We made it up to the mountains today. I had a little meltdown after the little meltdown, but we pulled it together and had a great outing as a whole family. The husbands time off is SO nice and were making a great time of it. We actually made it all the way to the pass to hike Gold Creek, but once there Little just flipped out and wouldnt get out of the car. @bear.kearns was compassionate and saw the genuine fear that our little guy couldnt articulate and made the agreement to try a different time. I was a bit heartbroken because its been wanting so badly to do this trip and got literally to the trailhead before feeling like it was just ripped out from under me. I was so excited on the drive up because I hadnt known if wed be making it up to the mountains at all this winter and I so wanted to. I got to put on my boots, hike the road to the honey buckets, then get back in the car and head due West. Jacob was right, while the hike and snow might have been worth it, wrestling a toddler in a tantrum across ice with no sidewalk - just a one-lane icy road with cars parked all along the side - was likely not the adventure we were looking for. And theres always another time to try. And the boys agreed for a moment anyway to try again before Jacob heads back to work. In the end, we stopped by Snoqualmie Falls on the way back and had a great time and an awesome short, snow-free hike in the forest and mountains. It was beautiful and I hope we can make it out to the Cascades more often. 💙 • • • • #washingtonstate #passporttoearth #snoqualmiefalls #cascadiaexplored #cascades #optoutside #whyihike #getoutside #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #nationalparks #nps #pnwdiscovered #getoutside #theoutbound #wanderwashington #choosemountains #exploremore #thegreatoutdoors #stayandwander #findyourpark #livewashington #cascadia #pacificnorthwest

White Sands NM will not only surprise your senses but fill you with a desire to return moments after you depart. ••••••• Thanks to Carmen @carmenyvr for the most excellent adventure. ——-- Spring in New Mexico ✨ . This trip not only topped my 2018 highlights but is up there for one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I must have taken over 100 photos but no amount of camera equipment can capture what it’s like to be here in real life.

RIP WIND CANYON 1999-2019 My heart is in pieces... Wind Canyon has died. A friend messaged me the bad news... He was thin and fairly old and could not get up from lying down, due to an unknown, very recent leg injury of some sort... The wildlife biologist and a park ranger, despite not being paid or able to work right now, due to the shutdown, came out to humanely euthanize him. Just turned 20, he was our oldest stallion as of recently... He does not have any known offspring in the park. His last presumed filly, Dawson (a.k.a. Canyon Breeze) disappeared in 2015 as a yearling. When I got the news, I was in the middle of rehearsal, during the absolute SADDEST part of Rent, crying my eyes out, trying to sing at the same time... Thank God my theatre troupe was there for me or I might have run away and shut down. Rest In Peace, old man... I love you so much... 💔💔💔😭😭😭 Image taken in May 2015. #ndbh #ndbhwindcanyon #northdakotabadlandshorse #theodorerooseveltwildhorse #trnp #wildhorsesofnorthdakota #findyourpark #ndlegendary #mustang #wildhorsesofnorthdakota #wildhorsepc #horstagram #wildhorse #northdakota #medora #northdakotaoutdoors #horsesofinstagram #igersnorthdakota #capturenorthdakota #raw_horses #pferd #equine #wildmustangsforever

Dont let the smile fool you. This was not my finest moment. It was hot, I was exasperated and at one point I sat on the trail with my pack on because I just couldnt go any further. But I knew the campground was ahead. So I just put one foot in front of the other until we got there. The start to 2019 has been a bit brutal for us. We have been under a lot of stress and change. Its easy to get swept up when you feel like stuff is being flung at you in many different directions. Sometimes what lies ahead of us seems insurmountable, but its about stepping back for a second, realizing that you have everything you need to survive inside you (and your backpack), and getting to where you are meant to be, by just putting one foot in front of the other. #backpacking #glaciernationalpark #hiking #browninthebackcountry #browngirlshike #vegan #plantpowered #veganhiker #optoutside #montana #melanin #diversityoutdoors #diversitymatters #wildmt #keepitwild #findyourpark 📷: @mcclurbryan

5 years ago

At Lees Ferry, below the Vermilion Cliffs, is the @usgs demarcation between the upper and lower Colorado River basins. River flow measured here helped determine allocation amounts for the Colorado River Compact signed between the western states, Mexico, and Native American tribes that use water from the river. Historically the ferry was the only crossing point along the river for hundreds of miles in either direction. Early LDS/Mormon pioneers that lived south in Arizona would travel north along the Honeymoon Trail to the LDS temple in St George, Utah, to be married for time and eternity. The ferry operated at the only accessible crossing between canyon walls, just below the Paria River output. Just downstream is the beginning of the Grand Canyon, while upstream is Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. . . . #GCearthsci #geology #geography #earthscience #hike #grandcanyon #findyourpark #desert #coloradoriver #optoutside #waterrights #hiking #roadtrip #adventure #igsouthwest #arizona #beautahful #utah #utahgram #weRutah #redrocks #travelgram #wilderness #history #hikingadventures #getoutside #outdoors #lakepowell #hikevibes #allaboutadventures
