You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. β€’ This was by far the most strenuous hike I’ve ever done (cacti got me good). I really don’t think there’s anything more fulfilling than finding a strength inside you that you never knew was there...and it took climbing this mountain to show me that.

Im not sure there is a bad view in southern Utah. There is nothing more peaceful than standing on the edge of the world looking out in the distance to amazing features like the canyons of the San Juan River and Monument Valley. It refuels my soul.β € β € β € #weutah #wowutah #igutah #southwest #utahdotcom #ig_southwest #utahgram #utahspots #utahexperience #utahisrad #iloveutah #teamutah #beautahful β € #bringtheoutsidein #mylifeoutside #findyourselfoutside #themotiway #outdoor_gallery #thegreatoutdoors #outside_project #wildernessculture #welivetoexplore #ienjoyhiking #briskoutdoors #keepexploring #outsideproject #theoutbound #nationalparkadventures #findingyourway β €

We spent some time exploring southern Utah trying to find ruins that were off the beaten path. Finding little gems like this tucked away in a secluded canyons is like traveling back in time. β € β € β € #weutah #wowutah #igutah #southwest #utahdotcom #ig_southwest #utahgram #utahspots #utahexperience #utahisrad #iloveutah #teamutah #beautahful β € #bringtheoutsidein #mylifeoutside #findyourselfoutside #themotiway #outdoor_gallery #thegreatoutdoors #outside_project #wildernessculture #welivetoexplore #ienjoyhiking #briskoutdoors #keepexploring #outsideproject #theoutbound #nationalparkadventures #findingyourway β €

McWay Falls, Big Sur, California - We had a beautiful day when I took this shot. The sun was out and it was in the 50s which is kind of normal for this part of California. The average temp in June is only 59F. McWay Falls is just one of those special places. I really wanted to go down to the beach but they had closed the path due to mudslides. I think I was still able to get a decent shot from the cliff above. The next day the road were closed due to what the National Weather Service called an Atmospheric River. I never heard monsoon rains called that before but it definitely applied! #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #theworldthroughmyeyes #earthmood #discovery_landscapes #travelingourplanet #ilovetravelling #nikonphotography #nikonphoto #americanphotographer #ig_california #ipulledoverforthis #westbysouthwest #ig_southwest #southwest #thefriendlyphotographers #excellent_america #excellent_snaps #hikes #hike #discovery_landscapes #bigsur #big_sur #mcwayfalls #californiacoast #centralcoastcalifornia

I didnt find this rattlesnake, he found me! 😁🐍 Rattles are a series of interlocking segments that bounce against each other to emit the rattling sound. They are hollow and made of keratin just like fingernails. #westerndiamondback #weroamarizona #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona   #fox10phoenix #Beon12   #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #tucsonnewsnow #westbysouthwest

One of my favorite things about being here thus far is area we live in. The accessibility to state parks, mountain ranges or city streets within a twenty to thirty minute drive in any given direction allows for last minute plans or just spontaneous weekends adventures πŸš™ | Jan 2019

3 days ago

Good morning! 🐍 Due to the strong sun and hot days, rattlesnakes hide in the shade and cool places during the summer. They then come out towards dusk and will be most active during the night, crawling back into their shady places soon after sunrise. What this means for the hiker or camper is that before sundown and lasting til just after sunrise, a person needs to be careful about where you step – not always easy at night! Because of this, it is never a real good idea to head out on a hike during the night-time hours through rattlesnake country. While the odds are low that you’ll step on one, the possibilitiy DOES exist – and one you need to be aware of. #westerndiamondback #weroamarizona #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona Β  #fox10phoenix #Beon12 Β  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet. ~Plato . . I’m so lucky and blessed that my wife is adventurous and loves to travel and experience life in the same ways I do. I’m so grateful and blessed for all we have done and seen and I can’t wait for all the memories still to come!!
