What are your fondest #memories of visiting #SagamoreHill ? This photo was taken by a young visitor on a class trip to the newly-created National Historic Site in 1963. #FlashbackFriday #FindYourPark #ClassTrip #blackandwhitephotography
This past Monday, in addition to being MLK Jr. Day, marked my 3rd anniversary in California. I celebrated it with a hike in one of my favorite areas with much needed Me-time. 3 years might not seem like a long time, but for someone who moved around a lot as a kid because my parents chose to and then as a younger adult because I wanted to, it feels good to call this place home. I’m so thankful for the life I get to live here. When I need a break from the noise in my head, I’m thankful for the sound of breaking waves and wind here and the peace that can be found so close to the city. What’s your favorite natural space in your neck of the woods? 😂 Pun, definitely intended. ___________________________________________________________ #thegreatoutchea #diversifyoutdoors #findyourpark #optoutside #naturelovers #natureheals #selfcare #coastalhike #peoplewhohike #sheexplores #westcoastbestcoast #sanfrancisco #AlwaysSF California #BayArea

In honor of my visit to my 46th National Park, I am sharing a photo from the last national park I visited. @lakeclarknps was my 45th National Park visit. I still can’t believe that I am almost done visiting all the US National Parks. After this weekend, I will only have 13 more parks to visit. Btw, the best way to see Lake Clark is by float plane. . . . #findyourpark #lakeclark #lakeclarknationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #naturalwonder #nationalparkweek #nationalparkgeek #bemusedbackpacker #worldplaces #lake #alaska #alaskanadventures #alaskaairlines #beautifuldestinations #beautifulworld #frombehind 17 #backpackerlife #americasbestidea #girlsvsglobe #girlslovetravel #travelstoke #travelawesome #travelandlife #exploremore #exploretocreate #explorationgram 27 #nationalparkservice

Driving the Loneliest Road in America was one of the best legs of my road trip and was actually anything but lonely. It was easy to imagine (and yearn for) what life was like during the days of the Pony Express. I passed only a handful of other cars in 400 miles...which made for the world's worst wilderness hangover when I rolled into Reno. • • • #loneliestroadinamerica #wildernesshangover #greatbasin #dontfencemein #roadtrip #wildlife #love #nps #desertlife #findyourpark #nevada #backcountry #dowhatyoulove #hwy50 #theoutbound #america #wildernessbabes #getoutside #girlswhohike #peregrinate #instagood #instamoment #wildernessculture #rei1440project #campvibes #keepitwild #howloften

Unfocused. Hyperfocused. Is either better than the other? I’m not really doing what I would call traveling at the moment and when I’m not traveling, it’s difficult for me to find the right balance in focus. . Distractions are everywhere in a “normal” life these days. One second your Googling a review on Patagonia’s newest jacket and the next you’re ready an article about how carrying an extra down jacket in your pack can save someone’s life on a hike. Let’s not even mention the 4 other “keep warm” related articles you read before that. It’s easy to lose focus. And while I struggle with that when living in “normalcy,” I’m concerned with being hyperfocused. . Have you ever had one of those days where, at the end of it, you ask yourself - “Who did I talk to today?” All of the sudden, the questions and realizations start flooding in. [If any of this sounds familiar, head over to itschaddyar.com/blog to read the whole article. I just had to write this one out.] . #peopleoverprofit #hyperfocus #distractions #balance
Look at the petrified logs there! 😍🙌🏼 Such a cool and beautiful National Park!

In line with my post from earlier this week, here is another image with a more editorial feel from 2017. What makes this image for me is that just a bit of her veil is still falling and is caught in only the bottom right hand corner of the frame. •••••• And next Monday at 10am I’m making a special announcement about a little creative experiment I’m launching. I can’t wait to share with you all. And on Tuesday I’m going to France. It does not quite feel real. • • • • • #elopementphotographer #junebugweddings #elopement #greenweddingshoes #intimatewedding #destinationweddingphotographer #loveintentionally #oregon #pnw #portland #washington #theknot #olympicnationalpark #mountainwedding #nationalparks #washingtonwedding #nps100 #findyourpark #seattle #littlethingstheory #portrait #upperleftusa #pacificnorthwest #pdx #loveauthentic #toritravels #nps #smpweddings #parks #photobugcommunity

It’s not cliche if you stop and listen to the words. Absorb them. React to them. Because life, today, really is a beautiful gift. Think about that-there are no guarantees-all we can do is live in each moment thoughtfully. The smell of the earth after a rain. The sound of your kids’ uninhibited laughter. The warmth and comfort of a long hug. The taste of a sweet carrot straight from the dirt. The way we choose to be in relationship with the people around us. There is an abundance to be grateful for. Cellulite doesn’t matter, petty arguments don’t matter, complaining about situations out of our control don’t matter, fancy anything doesn’t matter, perfectly curated IG feeds don’t matter, people who don’t show up for you...let them go. Appreciate what’s here and now. My dad’s death has offered me some very harsh truths and blessed gifts. I often think of a poem I love by M. Oliver; ‘maybe death isn't darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us.’ I feel that way a lot- this light continuing to teach me, enveloping me, reminding me and centering me on what’s truly important. It’s okay to be cranky. It’s okay to be tired. It’s okay to not love every single moment with your kids. Just don’t let it consume you. It’s been 8 months today since my dad died. Every day I strive to be the kind of human he would be proud of. ❤️ Happy Friday, make it count.
Dad is so silly!
This is an old photo, taken in August, but I love it. I can't quite put my finger on what I love about it, mostly because I'm an amateur hobby photographer who doesn't know much about the technicalities of cameras. 😅 What do you think it is? This is 2007 mare Sapphire, in Cocoa's band, with her about-3-day-old colt, Bagheera. He was so tiny! I can't wait to get back into the park next week to see who I see! I don't think I've ever gone 4 months without a park visit! I'm having SERIOUS withdrawals! 😅 Comments, follows, likes, and shares always appreciated. Thank you. #ndbh #ndbhsapphire #ndbhbagheera #ndbhbaggy #northdakotabadlandshorse #ndbadlands #beautifulbadlandsnd #trnp #theodorerooseveltnationalpark #findyourpark #ndlegendary #onlyinnorthdakota #mustang #boeunder3k
With a government shutdown ensuing tonight, I'm thankful they're planning to keep the National Parks open! Services will be extremely limited from what I've heard, but hell, I don't need the gift shop to be open I just need the Nature to be. When I first heard the shutdown was approaching, I immediately became worried we'd have to cancel our Misadventure this weekend, but looks like the Cosmo crew still gets to camp! Thank you National Park Service & thank you Trump administration (yes, I said it) for keeping the Parks open & accessible during the shutdown. So stoked! Sending some love to all the government employees that might be out of work for a bit. Hopefully they get you back in action before you know it! ⚡️ If anyone needs a beanie or tee for their next roadtrip, abduct it at ArtOfCosmonaut.com (link in bio) Apparel | Stargazing Calendar | Art Gallery #GovernmentShutdown
Finally getting to catch up on some of our personal photos in what’s considered to be a Photographers “slow season” if ever one. I love taking a moment for myself and remembering where I’ve been with my main squeeze. In July, we hiked through @DoiInthanonNationalPark while visiting Chiang Mai, Thailand on a coffee tour, and I loved when we got a clearing in the forest to catch an overlook of the farms and mountain living of the village people. What a beautiful site of hard work, family, and the natural beauty of Thailand. People ask me all the time what is my favorite place I’ve visited. I’ve always loved them all equally for difference reasons. But when I hit the beaches of Phuket, Thailand and then we flew north Thailand to Chiang Mai, holy smokes this might be one of my top trips of all time! I’d totally recommend everyone saving for the plane tickets. It’s so ridiculously cheap once you get there. A full meal for two of us, about $2.50! 🌴 .............................Who’s taking a little time for themselves today and what are you catching up on?
“I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Playing on the trail on my way up to Hightop Mountain & making an effort to love the trail just as much as the overlook ⛰ (it wasn’t too hard with these fun rocks!) #mountaingirl #visitvirginia #findyourpark

There's nothing quite like walking through fresh snow in a national park. Bonnie and I walked through the snow to explore the fortifications at Petersburg National Battlefield.⠀ ⠀ #WanderFilledWinter2017

This gnarly tree in #RMNP is probably my favorite tree in Colorado that I have found so far. Is it weird to have a favorite tree?
This past week I got to cruise over to the mainland for a little bit. Lucas and I checked out Death Valley for a few days and our last morning, I made this self portrait. Standing up there looking out over the quiet beauty, while my camera was firing behind me, I couldn't get over how lucky I am. Life is an incredible gift. It's not something we deserve and it's not something anybody owes us. ⠀ ⠀ The morning I made this photo and was thinking about those things was the same morning Hawaii received that crazy text message about the missle coming. I wonder if those same thoughts would have ran through my mind if I had been there, at home- in that moment, receiving that message instead of standing on top of a giant dune in the middle of the high sierra desert. ⠀ I hope so.⠀ ⠀ Thanks @hippytree for featuring my photography in Hermosa Beach last week. What a great excuse to come over and do some exploration and see some family. California has redeemed itself;-) ⠀ ⠀ ⠀.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ..⠀ ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #intothewild ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tinypeopleinbigplaces ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bestplacestogo ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #inspiredbynature ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #california ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #welltravelled ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thedailyadventurer ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #besttravelcamp_insta ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #backpackingculture ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lifeofadventure ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dametraveler ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #hikingculture ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #optoutside ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #adventurepic ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegreatoutdoors ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wildernessculture ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #travelawesome ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #discovernature ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #roamtheplanet ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #welivetoexplore ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #exploretocreate ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bpmag ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #peoplestaringatstuff ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #departedoutdoors ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #hikinglifestyle ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #landscapecaptures ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #liveoutdoors ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #52weeksofnature ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #deathvalley#findyourpark
Happy Friday. I love views like this, because it makes me use my phone more to take pictures than for other things. What's the one thing you look forward to every Friday? Share in the comments below. 👇
