“May your journey take you beyond the horizon” Every journey must come to an end. Needless to say after 11 days and roughly 60 + miles of trails hiked I’m worn out. Such a stark contrast to most of the National Parks I’ve been to lately with the head and arid desert climate. Being there during monsoon season definitely makes for a challenge on hitting the trail and being off before flash floods become a threat. I will be back sooner then later. The American Southwest has far to many parks o did not get around to this trip. Until next time. #NationalParks #NPS #AmericanRoadTrip #Arizona #Utah #AmericanSouthwest #TheGreatOutdoors #NeverStopExploring #TheGreatOutdoors #OptOutside #DestinationEarth #BreathtakingPlaces #FindYourPark #Hiking #Exploring #Mountains #Canyons #10Down49ToGo #AlreadyNeedAnotherVacation

Crazy cross country camping! #justgo #greatoutdoors #nps #closequarters
We weren’t planning on swimming, but when we saw the Tetons for the first time we couldn’t help ourselves #nps #grandtetonnationalpark #familyswim
When the sun rises through Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park, it gives the underside of this sweeping natural structure a magical glow. The arch sits on the edge of a cliff and the views through it of the vast canyons below seem to go on forever. #trekarooing #canyonlands #findyourpark
It begins again... #PatsCamp in 1 week!
You know what they say about old friends; you can never make new ones. Grateful for this guy and his ability to pick the best hiking spots imaginable. Here’s to you brother @jchansen84 #californiaadventure #californiadreaming #johnmuir #iceburglake #hiking #backcountry #explore #lnt #rei #nps
I had a friend call me and ask me on places to check out in Bryce Canyon. I started to think of where I went, and remembered my time was a little more limited in that park. . But the memory I do have, was of these two baby antelope (Pronghorn). . In the evening hours, I took my time slowly working closer and closer without them noticing me. As their mother, and a few other antelope were close, I still made my movements small and slow. I got close enough to take this photo, along with a few more. . I was able to eventually get less than a few feet from them. After some time, I decided to slowly back out and let them enjoy the rest of their evening. So my time in the park was not so much of enjoying the landscapes, as much as getting close to some wildlife. . I still enjoyed all the Hoodoos and great scenery that Bryce Canyon offers. . To add there was a large fire just west of Bryce Canyon at the time I was there. And at night there was a Astronomy festival. There were many many telescopes set up at night. And if there wasn't so much smoke from the fire, it would have been an amazing place to see stars and galaxies. . . #antelope #brycecanyon #nps #wwf #nature #allnatureshots #wildlifeplanet #wildlifephotography #photooftheday #naturelovers #outdoors #adventure #instanature #naturephotography #naturelover #nikon #explore #nature_shooters #safari #conservation #wilderness #animalsofinstagram #nature_perfection #getoutdoors #earthofficial #wildernessculture

"The more formidable the contradiction between inexhaustible life-joy and inevitable fate, the greater the longing which reveals itself in the kingdom of poetry and in the self-created world of dreams hopes to banish the dark power of reality. The gods enjoy eternal youth, and the search for the means of securing it was one of the occupations of the heroes of mythology and the sages, as it was of real adventurers in the middle ages and more recent times. . . . But the fountain of youth has not been found, and can not be found if it is sought in any particular spot on the earth. Yet it is no fable, no dream-picture; it requires no adept to find it: it streams forth inexhaustible in all living nature."

Serious picnic table envy. This beauty has almost three inch thick planks on the table and bench.

Can’t believe it’s almost been a year since we set out on our first ever roadtrip. With less than 3 weeks of planning at that. One of our best decisions ever. Badlands National Park was our first national park and we were instantly hooked. Smitten. Amazed by this land of ours & eager to see more. Now here we are. 17 national parks in one year. And so many more to explore. 🧡 . . . . . traveltribe5 #finleyfive #nps #finleyfiveroadtrip2017 #badlandsnationalpark #badlands #badlandsnps #southdakota #nationalparkroadtrip #getoutdoors #exploreamerica #visittheusa #seenewplaces #dofunthings #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #familyadventures #roadtrippin #travelgram #familyroadtrip #finleyfiveroadtrip #memories #clemson #clemsonfamily #solidorange #allin #tigerrag
If given the opportunity to explore some of the PNW in an RV, I’d suggest you do it.

With all of the rain we've gotten this season, the park is absolutely covered in wildflowers! Wild bergamot, commonly known as Beebalm, is very important to the pollinators in the park. NPS Photo: S.

A quiet Acadia morning. When I'm in Acadia, I get up early before dawn every morning and check on the weather. Unless it's already raining or the radar looks bleak, I'll often head out to the coast to see what happens with the light. On this morning, the clouds never cleared and it started raining as the sky lightened. Typically if there's no real color in the sky, my mind switches to black-and-white mode. But on this morning, there was a real bluish- purple tone in the clouds in the water. I used a long shutter speed of 13 seconds to smooth out the water and complement the sky. A few minutes after I took this picture, I was back in the car waiting out the rain. • • Download my ebook, The Photographer's Guide to Acadia, at www.imagesofacadia.com/photoguide • • Custom wall prints available up to 96-inches wide.

The mountains provide all kinds of marvelous at North Cascades National Park. ••••• Thanks to Nick @nkoehlerphotography for the wonderful vista. ——- North Cascades has one of the most beautiful lakes I’ve seen, in fact visited this one twice. A little about my self. My passion for photography came from one night sleep and waking up one day with a purpose to hold a camera in my hand and help push for a more beautiful planet through conservation. #Travel #Travelphotography #travelphotooftheday #Photography #nkoehlerphotography #photojournalism #hoboh #natgeo #natgeotravel #inspirationbyworld #WorldWideCapture #NationalParkLife #parks101 #nps #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkgeek #Landscape_captures #landscapephotography #yourshotphotographer #igerslandscapes #stunnersoninsta #northcascades #pnw #pnwonderland #visitwashington @national_park_photography @nationalparkgeek @landscape_captures @exceptional_pictures ——- #nationalparkgeek

Despite smoke from wildfires along the CA/OR border starting to blow in the views along the hike to Garfield Peak (7,976 ft.) were still spectacular. Also note 9,183 ft. Mt.

It was already 92 degrees at 8:45 a.m. in Scottsdale as I was out taking photos of some public art. I haven’t left the comfort of air conditioning since I got to my office at 9 a.m. But at some point tonight I will walk to the parking garage and it will be an oven out there. So, instead of thinking about that, I’m think of wildflowers at Cedar Breaks, where it’s currently 65 degrees, according to The Weather Channel. . . . #wildflowers #CedarBreaks #ScenicSouthernUtah #Utah #utahgram #nps

At today’s teachback at Adams National Historical Park the Adam’s staff took sometime to recognize one of their staff, Joe Rocha, for 5 years of service with the NPS. Joe got his NPS start with Branching Out in 2010 as first a field team member and field team leader. Today he is one of the park’s maintenance staff. Congratulations, Joe! Thanks for your technical assistance this week while the field team was @adamsnps #alumni #nps

Someone has her eye on you... come see us at the #mokupāpapadiscoverycenter in #Hilo right there on Bayfront to check out our national park store and, at the same time, learn a whole lot about the NW #Hawaiian Islands. A lot of people are not aware of how long the state of Hawai’i really is! It includes a much larger number of islands than you would suspect. We share the space with #NOAA and the National Park Service. Between the three of us we do the best we can to support our Hawai’i home! #HPPA #MDC #NPS #HawaiianArchipelago #ProtectedLands #ProtectedWaters #ProtectedReefs #OctopusLove 🐙🐡🦀🦑🐠🐟🐋🦈🌴🌿🌺🌈

Remain flexible.... life is forever changing - It’s been a crazy bananas summer, and I’m trying to catch my breath. We’ve moved studios and had some unexpected stuff thrown in our direction... but are catching our breath, catching up, and getting back into the routine. Pic: The amazing @laney.ciaccio from @creativeheartdancestudio wearing @honeycutofficial Hope you’re all having a great summer!
