Who goes to Patagonia and then takes bird photos?! Everyone on my recent landscape photography trip thinks I'm crazy but there were quite a few beautiful little birds hidden around the camps. After spraining my ankle and missing a walk or two I decided to stalk them. This is the Thorn-tailed Rayadito. So called because it has numerous spines sticking out of its tail. These little guys were not worried about humans at all and I had a couple come so close I couldn't focus the lens on them.
Fun fact: Last year, J and I did little to no traveling. It was partly because we were expecting our first babe... and as embarrassing as it is for me to now admit... I was kind-of-definitely-initially bummed. (Yeah the picture on this gram is from two years ago 😬😂). Don’t throw me any pity party - I have NO room to complain as I have been able to travel to quite a few cool places (partly thanks to my husbabes work perks). Interestingly enough, the year of no travel...was a HUGE year of what I will call “relationship adventure” or maybe “relation-trips” 😬😂. I feel that both my marriage and other close relationships grew in ways that are as incredibly beautiful as the falls in this picture. While I still want to see so much more of this incredible Earth, I think really connecting and discovering the beauty of the people we do life with will leave us equally speechless. 😍❤️🙌🏻 (And let’s be honest, ideally we can do both). #latenightthoughts #missingthehubby
If I can't have the ocean, then I'll take the lakes and mountains.
Lake McDonald in Montana is one of my favorite spots to visit. I like to sit here for hours and try to lose myself in the magnificence of my surroundings. Undisturbed and alone for more than 2 hours... completely out of my element, I'm able to contemplate the various components of my life and re-imagine the road ahead and think about the things that really matter. I even skim a pebble or two to break the monotony of the silence.
In the past I've posted pics of this exact spot. This time I've tried to capture the essence of its glory in a short video feed. I hope I did it the same justice that it does for me.

It’s a lil muddy yet at the @parkcabinco
, but the weather forecast looks excellent for accelerating our drying-out process this week.
We think kids and National Parks go together perfectly. Share your photos with us by tagging #trekarooing
and we'll share some during #nationalparksweek
Like this beauty in Glacier National Park! 🏔 Repost from @sharlene_earnshaw
National Parks Week is just around the corner! Here is one of my favorites of Mari at Logan Pass in Glacier National Park.
Quiet, serenity and connection. That is what Polebridge gifted to us. As a result it earned a sweet little spot in our hearts.
The one and only Thuja Plicata. The most beautiful tree in Montana in my opinion. 🌲
Not all days are great days. I'm glad I have beautiful pictures to remind me that not all days are bad days either. 😊♥️ (Taken July 2017)
