Last week I worked my way up a mountain ridge after the snow storm and only made it a couple miles. The snow was deep and soft and I ran out of time and didn’t make it as far as I had hoped. The next day I ventured up the same ridge with this crew and was able to make it to the cabin above Adams waterfall. Pretty crazy what you can accomplish with a little help from your friends, especially when they are Madsen’s. 😉 #goatworthy #utahisrad #adventureoften #suunto #ogdenadventure #werutah #westbysouthwest #pushpeaks #adventureon #mountainviews #getoutandlive #utah #visitutah #roam #wasatchmountains #utahdotcom #suuntosquad #suunto9 #myadventure #selfpropelled #mountainscape #mountainview #ogdenmade #ridgewalk #mountainmoment #ksltv #mountainfriends #snowshoe #snowhike

Did you ever feel like the day went so fast.....you could hardly catch your breath? Well......thats how it went for me today. I had to make a critical call to put in the effort to go catch the sunset that might not have happened (due to the thick clouds). Tough....since I was beyond backed up.....but then I saw the light....pushing through the clouds and made it happen. Sometimes a persons day can be turned around just by the miracles of Nature! Soooo Beautiful tonight to the West! It was worth the effort!

Sunset ride at the Canyon... ...If you live in a cold climate you'll want to stop reading right now... It was one of those perfect southern Arizona evenings and no bugs this time of year (even though I did have a little bat keeping me company and trying to clean out any bugs left). When I got back to the car, well after dark, my car thermometer said it was 75 degrees and my home one said 70 about 15 minutes later. . . . #sunsetride #arizonasunset #sunsethiking #horseriding #riding #equestrian #sunset_love #sunsetarizona #goldenhour #goldenhourphotography #explorearizona #arizona #visitarizona #photographer #desertphotography #desert #desertcolors #sabinocanyon #hikearizona #southwest #desertsouthwest #instagramaz #mountains #arizonaisgorgeous #whyilovewhereilive @sabinocanyon #divine_deserts #westbysouthwest #igers_tucson #visittucson #tucson

I showed her this shot and she said “Dude. That sharp curve is insane. It almost doesn’t even look real” - After a backpacking trip I love sitting down with @freeyourfork to flip through all the images. This was the first solo trip I took and this shot was from a peak we had only seen far away from another trail. And I kept telling her how weird the sharpness in these peaks looked up close. I love landscapes like that, those crags and pointed peaks look kinda wild ya know? - Would be awesome to see more places like this. I know Yosemite isn’t the only place hiding formations like these. Drop your favorite locations for seeing sharp and craggy mountains below.

I didn’t go into this year thinking I would’ve done as much as I did with photography. I didn’t even have one thought about making a calendar, but it sold out in less than a week and I’m so thankful to God and everyone who has supported me. There’s much more to come. . . . . . . #ig_exquisite #fantastic_earth #nature_wizards #landscape_capture #landscape_captures #landscape_hunter #landscape_lover #landscape_lovers #landscape_photography #landscapehunter #landscapelover #landscapelovers #landscapephotomag   #landscape_specialist #natgeo #sirui #nationalgeographic   #naturephotography #ourplanetdaily #tamron #westbysouthwest #nikond750 #alabamahills #californian

Sycamore Creek storm - I stopped off to take pictures of the snowy peak and was treated to a raging river overflowing into the road as well as a hail storm that dropped tiny white chunks on my head. It was cold and crazy but that’s what I live for! It reminds me to find beauty in the storms of life. Don’t run away...stand firm and enjoy the wonders that can come from facing the tough stuff! #beon12 #abc15arizona #cbs5az #fox10phoenix #instagramaz #igsouthwest #explorearizona #oharizona #arizonaisgorgeous #welcometoarizona #westbysouthwest #divinedeserts #azstateparks #tontonationalforest #mazatzalwilderness #hikersofinstagram #hikearizona #landscapephotography #outdoorphotography #natgeoyourshot #arizonaisbeautiful #naturalarizona #nikonphotography #nikonusa #optoutside #amazingsunsets #igersphoenix #rei #optoutside 🌲

Overcome obstacles just as the sun overcomes a mountain ridge to shine its light 🌄 ↟ Some days, life just straight up slaps you in the face. I’ve been lacking creative energy lately, and today hasn’t exactly helped. But I’m a big believer in the idea that those who live the most fulfilling lives are the ones that take setbacks as an opportunity to change and prove your true capability - to yourself more so than anyone else. ↟ So despite every reason you may have to lack motivation, I encourage you to keep pushing too toward whatever goals you’re chasing for yourself. Who knows, your greatest achievements or your best days might be right around the corner. 🌲 . . . . . #crestedbutte #travelcrestedbutte #ourplanet #westbysouthwest #fallfoliage #fallcolors #wilderness_culture #earthlandscape #mountainstones #choosemountains #roamtheplanet #coloradogram #outtherecolorado #coloradountamed #viewcolorado #explorecolorado #naturalcolorado #viewsfromcolorado #roamnation #coloradotography #coloradolive #coloradoshared #amongthewild #wildandco #discover_earth #roamnation #visitcolorado #WWTTY

When you get over a foot and a half of snow and the lake freezes over within about 2 days.....then hoarfrost appears the next morning with fresh snowflakes on the ice of the lake. That is a good winter day. There aren’t many winter days that I consider good since I spent the first half of my life living within 10 minutes of the beach in CA, but when there is a lot of snow, I absolutely love it!! Then, the colder the better! #leavenotrace #naturefirst

When I was younger I bought my first Rapala. At close to $9, that was a lot for me! A few casts in, I got it caught on the bank across the river. I was determined that I would not loose it, so I stripped down to my boxers and bare footed I made my way across the river. Which in itself doesn't sound too impressive, until I tell you that it looked very similar to this image. After that, I was more careful about my casting. #nikonnofilter   #nikonusa   #big_shotz   #westbysouthwest   #splendid_earth   #exploretocreate   #uintas   #adventure   #utahclimbing   #aroundtheworldpix   #frozenriver   #wildernessculture   #werutah   #fstopgear   #wondersofourplanet   #globalcapture   #outdoors   #landscape_lovers   #ig_thisworld   #worldtravelscapes #adventuresfirststop #justgoshoot #utahgram #utahadventure #parkcity #utahmountains #frozen

Be wild & free 🐴💫⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That’s how @lovestephaniegreene and I felt out adventuring with the wild horses the other night. We saw at least 50, but this white foal was my absolutely fave. At one point Stephanie was crouched down and he walked right up to her. So glad I was ready to capture that moment (photo 4)! ⁣ ⁣ The photos of me were taken by @lovestephaniegreene. The last photo in this series that she took of me totally captures how I felt being out there. 😌🧡 More adventures pleeeease! 😏

Yellowstone fascinates me! A place where fire and water, earth and sky come together to form beauty out of destruction. A place where Schumpeter's economic Creative Destruction plays out in nature on a daily basis. A place where we see the circle of life in its full circle. A place where one's soul can be simultaneously set alight and calmed. A place where the deepest secrets of earth meet its highest aspiration. A place where God teases the Devil. A place where Earth and Life live. #EscalanteRidge #ImportedFromWisdom . . . #adventurelife #weliveelevated #igsouthwest #createyourtrail #westbysouthwest #weroamthewest #alltrails #wilderness #usinterior #recreationgov #choosemountains #npfans #getoutside #travels #wanderfolk #travelguide #explorer #optoutside #packforlife #adventurer #findyourpark #mountainlife #mountainhardware #utahgram #hiker #Yellowstone #nationalpark #sharetheexperience

When you learn that meekness and kindness go hand in hand, nature rewards you with beauty. When you learn appreciation for the delicate, patience grows. When you learn to be still, nature shows you that the bigger picture comes through small and simple things. #MindfulWandering #ImportedFromWisdom . . . . #EscalanteRidge #arizona #wilderness #exploring #hiker #weroamthewest #desertlife #adventurer #wandering #arizonacollective #grandcanyon #butterfly #weliveelevated #goexplore #sharegoodness #visitarizona #travelpic #goatworthy #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #gooutside #insectsofinstagram #divine_deserts #instaanimal #outwest #givethanks #adventurelife #bestofthebest

It was a 2 hour drive from my place to Mt. Hood and the beautiful glimpses of this mountain at several points on my way left me asking for more. And when I finally reached the mountain, it left me speechless! This was my first visit. It’s my 10th visit today and the mountain still doesn’t cease to amaze me! . . . . #oregon #mounthood #oregonphotography #naturaloregon #exploreoregon #oregonisbeautiful #traveloregon #pnwphotography #cascadiaexplored #mthood #snow #snowymountains #mountains #volcanoes #volcanicmountain #oregonian #oregonadventures #oregonmountains #oregonexplored #oregonbeauty #oregonlove #discoveroregon #mountain #mountainlover #bestoforegon #onlyinoregon #westbysouthwest #vancouverpdxliving #thatoregonlife #natureOR @northwestvibes @mtnswld @mthoodterritory @wonderful.oregon @pnw_drifters

Ocotillo and barrel cactus in Palm Canyon at Anza Borrego. Hiked with #sdnhm Canyoneers up to the 1st oasis this morning, but a few of us went on to the 3rd oasis. The fact that there are leaves on the Ocotillo and the spines on the cactus have turned red, show that it has rained recently, as both phenomena occur when there is more water present below.

Amazing things happen where the ocean meets land. Here at Stornetta Public Lands, rapid uplift of softer Miocene period Gualala formation sediments combined with wave erosion, leads to sea caves, collapsed formations, and humorous names like Toilet Bowl Hole. . . . . #EscalanteRidge #MindfulWandering #geography #geology #earthscience #campmanapproved #gooutside #alltrails #CA #westbysouthwest #GOATworthy #hykeandbyke #hiker #npfans #adventurer #norcal #coast #cali #igsouthwest #stornettapubliclands #soulofthewild #explorer #rawcalifornia #beachlife #outwest #leftcoast #wanderfolk #funny #travelguide
