The desert speaks to me. ⁣ .⁣ I mean, not *literally* but of all the different landscapes I've seen there's something about the desert that just strikes a chord deeper than any other place. I can even objectively see and know that other places are "prettier" than the desert but, you guys, there is just *something about it* that I cannot explain. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ So what about you? What are the places that get you? I'd love to hear :) ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ #nomadstories #wanderout #arizonaphotographer #icelandphotography #arizonaelopementphotographer #elopement #elope #optoutside #neverstopexploring #theoutbound #womenwhohike #peakexistence #nationalparkgeek #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #leavenotrace #gltlove #inspireatlas #trulyamazingplaces #wanderlustinitiative #icelandphotographer #passionpassport #natgeoinspires

Although this image was from Yellowstone, as I was going through some photos of this grizzly, I kept thinking about how much I want to photograph brown bears in Alaska. In terms of photography, it’s at the top of my list (with Africa in a close second). Fingers crossed that we make it over there next summer. That being said, whenever Katy and I talk about traveling to a new place, we regularly say, “Well, we could always go to Yellowstone again.” Three times in the past year still hasn’t been enough. Who knows, maybe Wyoming or Montana will be adding a couple new residents in the future...

The weather was absolutely glorious yesterday when we took a day trip to visit an old friend, Mt Rainier. We drove into the park through the NE entrance for the first time and took the road to the Sunrise Visitor Center which was unfortunately closed for the season. We decided to get up close and personal with our volcanic host so we hiked to the second borough. She looked magnificent in all her splendor drawing the eye to all who came near and although her cloud cap grew as the day progressed, we felt grateful and blessed to be there. This is our bliss. #ontherogue #mtrainiernationalpark #findyourpark #nps #rvlife #nomadlife #nationalparkgeek #pnwonderland

If the current trends continue, #glaciernationalpark will no longer have active glaciers in 2030 which is only ten years away!!!! I do sincerely hope all of us make some changes in our lives to reduce our carbon footprint on this planet. I am going to start documenting how I am going to work towards it.

What?? Is that me on the other side of the camera? A very rare sight haha. Just wanted to give y’all a bit of background about myself since my page has grown and there’s a lot of you who don’t know much about me. Basically I’m just a dude who’s extremely passionate about wildlife and capturing moments in their lives. I’m originally from Orlando Florida but my family and I moved to Wyoming back in 2016 to chase the mountains and just try something new. I’ve always had a love for animals and first started taking pictures when I was ten years old. I would go out in my backyard and photograph lizards, birds, squirrels, gators, and whatever else I could find. I realized that I had the capability to capture these split second moments in the animas lives to live on forever and that was just such an amazing thing to me, and still is! I now work full time at a camera store in Jackson Wyoming and spend all of my off time out in the woods chasing critters! Spending time outdoors and being able to share these moments with the wildlife is really what I live for. One day I’d love to travel the world to see and photograph all the different animals as well as landscapes! • Now what about you guys? Where are you from? What’s your passion in life? What’s your dream? I want to get to know you guys a little more!

Remember the time we were young and carefree? Well, it doesn’t have to be a memory. 🍉 Never too old for floaties and fun! Especially when you lug it in for a backpacking trip to some alpine lakes! Fun plans this weekend? I can’t seem to wait for it! Happy Thursday!

JMT Day 8 || We took a wrong turn approaching Silver Pass. It is difficult to be frustrated about going the wrong way and walking 2 extra miles when you have views like this. A weird side of me loves getting lost and going the wrong way; you never know what you’re going to find on the back end of the journey. • • • • • • • • • • • • • #findyouradventure #hikingculture #hikeheaven #hikevibes #camping #earthoutdoors #nature #hiking #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #ig_brilliant #photography #canon #canonphotography #earthgridz #hiking_daily #wanderlust #beautifuldestinations #WixPhotography #parkroamers #naturereset #naturelovers #naturephotography #yourshotphotographer @natgeoadventure @natgeoyourshot #fstopgear #earthfocus #OptOutside

The last few rays of sunshine have faded behind the narrowing tree lined road as we wind our way through the forest.

On our route to fall colors we took a pit stop in Badlands National Park and I was quite surprised✨! ⠀ ⠀ The landscape reminded me heavily of Arizona, which I didn’t expect in South Dakota of all places. For a quick sunset mission, we opted to do this hike that featured what Scott and I call “the ladder of DOOM” (see my stories for more!). It honestly looks a lot more intimidating than it is in IRL😂, but it was fun nonetheless. ⠀ ⠀ Swipe through the slider for BTS/ me talking smack to @scottyreichard (as usual)😂!

Been to the West Rim, been to the South Rim, and now I finally made it to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon... _ All have spectacular views but I think I liked this one the most. _ There's a lot more green on this side and darker reds that form a more interesting contrast (in my opinion) than the other sides of the Grand Canyon. _ What made this particular viewpoint even more special was the fact that it was only a 2 minute walk from my tent. _ It's experiences like this that make me feel truly grateful for the life I have 🙏🏼

Seeing snow in the forecast is definitely causing some panic. Gotta get those last minute high-elevation hikes in before the roads close! Not that road closures will keep Emily and I from getting up into the mountains, we’ll just have to fire up the snowmobiles 🚀 Happy Fall everyone!

Reflection at Reflection Lake: My earliest memory of visiting @mountrainiernps was when I was 4 or 5 y.o. Apparently, I loved it so much that I threw a tantrum when it was time to go home -- the kind that could've killed us all. On the drive down, I decided to take matters into my own toddler hands in order to stop us from leaving the Mountain. I somehow managed to get up to the front seat (lax vehicle toddler safety laws back then? 🤷🏻‍♂️) and, to everyone's surprise, yanked on the steering wheel to turn the car around...on a winding mountain road with rocky cliffs on one side and a steep drop on the other. Needless to say, my parents were livid. 😅 --- I'm sightly better behaved now when I have to leave the Mountain -- but inevitably, I have to come back. ------- 📸: f=24mm • 1/40 sec. • f/8 • ISO-160 📷: @canonusa EOS 5D Mk IV w/ EF 24-70mm f/4 L IS USM ------- #scenicWA #washingtontrails #mountrainier #mountrainiernationalpark #reflectionlake #reflectiongram #reflectionphotography #reflection_perfection #national_park_photography #naturephotos #nature_brilliance #water_brilliance #nationalparkgeek #washington_ig #theNWadventure #wanderwashington #explorewashington #thatpnwlife #PNWmoods #pnwonderland #pnwescapes #landscape_lover #landscape_capture #landscapeoftheday #landscapephotos #hikingaddict #mountrainiernps #mountainlife #sky_brilliance #upperleftusa @usinterior @nationalparkservice

“Education...means emancipation. It means light and liberty. It means the uplifting of the soul of man into the glorious light of truth, the light by which men can only be made free.” -Frederick Douglass . We are always learning new things here at the National Parks of Boston. Recently, park staff made a trip to the City Archives where they were able to hold the physical shares that would later become the financial backing of the Abiel Smith School. We hope this new research will give us answers to our many questions. . What questions do you have about the Abiel Smith School?

Capitol Reef is a park underestimated according to us, it is clearly worth the detour. We came across a lot of animals, we were little or almost alone each time and the scenery is just surreal. If you are coming to Utah and you are planning to visit Zion, Arches, Canyonlands or Bryce Canyon. Do not forget to come for a ride. ;). . . Capitol Reef est un parc sous estimé selon nous, il en vaut clairement le détour. Nous avons croisé beaucoup d'animaux, nous étions peu ou presque seuls à chaque fois et les paysages sont juste surréaliste.
