Sharing the goodness of nature and National Parks is the noblest of goals for any father. Happy Father’s Day. •••••• Thank you to the Rasmussens @hikingtheglobewithkids for sharing the view. ——- We get asked all the time “how do we travel full time?” We don’t! My husband works full time as a property manager and I stay at home with our kids! We have dedicate our weekends to adventure—hiking, camping, traveling and doing mini road trips! We also save up those vacation days to plan a couple epic trips during the year and believe it or not I do a lot of solo adventures with our kids during the week while Cory works! We absolutely love being outdoors and traveling—which is why it’s a huge priority for us to do it with our kids! . . How balance work and adventure? ———- #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark #findyourpark #canyonlands #canyonlandsnationalpark

Sundays are for relaxing. ••••• Thanks to Akshara @desionarun for the goodness. ——- Seeing these calves was a once in a life time experience. They look so cute, but don’t get fooled by their size. They can grow up to be a ton. Specially maintain your distance, mama’s can get very protective. Do you know that Bison calves can stand up within few hours of birth. And they stays mostly with the female herds for about 3 year. • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tips: • Can’t stress this enough, respect the animals, never approach or pursue them to take picture. People get seriously injured. • Do not feed animals, we want them to be wild, be afraid if humans. You are not helping by offering food or anything. • Get a binocular and good telephoto lenses, to see them. • Park in roadside pullouts when watching/photographing animals. Blocking a traffic is not a good idea. • Best time to see wildlife is dusk or dawn. • • • • • #wildlifephotography #naturesbestphotomagazine #yellowstonenationalpark #ynp #yellowstonepledge #yellowstone #yellowstonepledge #ynpforever #wildlife #lifeofadventure  #folkmagazine #theglobewanderer  #marvelous_shots  #exploretocreate  #instagoodmyphoto  #thenationalparkspass #nationalparklife  #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #chooseyourpark #FindYourPark #goparks  #americasbestidea  #naturephotography #landscapephotography #natgeoyourshot #bison ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ——— #nationalparkgeek

When the view is this astonishing you know it’s a good spot to sit and stay a spell. ••••• Thanks to Mandy @mandyleaphoto for the goodness and happy anniversary to your parents. ——-- Today's image is dedicated to my wonderful parents @tandempam who are celebrating their 49th wedding anniversary! They have been an amazing team, raising my sister and I to love the outdoors. They are responsible for my love affair with mountains, and for giving me the courage to chase my dreams.
