My kind of road. We are currently very very slowly tackling the loneliest highway in the states and I wish we could go back to these views instead of the vast nothingness that is Nevada. I mean, to be fair, this part of Nevada is way prettier than I anticipated (snow capped mountains, trees?!), but it’s just not the same 🗻

We spent a night at a primitive campsite with no one else for miles above Cathedral Valley. The wind blew all night and we almost got stuck on the unpaved road getting out of there. But these views! 🤩

While I’m a fan of any mountain range (gimme the mountains), the Tetons have the tendency to look awfully mean. All the glorious fall colors did help a little bit with that.

It’s been over a month since I saw this bull moose at sunrise. I hope to wake up in the wild again very soon.

“Sandscape”: GSDNP || As the sun lowers itself, closer and closer to that Western Horizon, magical things happen. Shapes appear, disappear, and change... if you’re not present, you’ll never experience the beauty happening right there in front of you. #Look #Watch #Experience #BePresent #CreateMemories #Shadows #DancingShapes #EverChanging #SandScape #GSDNP #GreatSandDunesNationalPark #NationalParks #AmericasBestIdea #Sunset #ThroughMyEyes #DJP

Advice from a cave: breathe deep. find beauty in unexpected places. search inward. good things take time. look beneath the surface. hang tight.

We're making some new pillows for our Holiday Craft Show season! We've got our National Park Junkie pillows in black/white or olive/plaid. They are 20" x 20" and make great accessories for the RV, cabin, or nature-themed rooms! These are not available on our website, but DM if you're interested! If you're local, visit our booth at the Sandburg Craft Show in November in Orland Park, IL. 👍👍

Craters of the Moon National Monument, created in 1924 by President Calvin Coolidge, showcases over 60 lava flows ranging in age from 15,000 to 2,000 years old. Cinder cones, splatter cones, lava bombs, fissures, and lava tubes seem to go on forever over the horizon in the barren wilderness.🌋🌔🌓🌑🌗🌖🌋 • • #NationalParkOdyssey #NationalPark #NationalParkGeek #Adventurenthusiasts #GoExplore #AdventureIsOutThere #NPS #National_Park_Photography #ParkRoamers #NationalParkObsessed #FindYourPark #USParksAndMonuments #AmongTheWild #AmericasBestIdea #GetOutside #GoParks #USInterior #NationalParksAndMonuments #ParkRoamers #Idaho #LavaFlows #CratersOfTheMoonNM

This giant sequoia, the Grizzly Giant, is the size of the statute of liberty and more than 1,700 years old. It stands unbelievably large, marking the passage of time and human history, which is really nothing but a spec in the grand history of the earth. So when you're stressed out and feeling lost or confused, know that all will pass and all is right. There are greater forces and living, breathing things beyond our understanding and control. Enjoy the brief moments you are given. Our time here is short. #yosemite #sequoias #grizzlygiant #nationalparks #restlessdestinee #girlswhohike #womenwhohike #latinaoutdoors #timeisshort #hikerbabes #adventure #neverstopexploring #optoutside #americathebeautiful #americasbestidea #outdoors #ilovetrees

Sunlit aspens, a train, blue sky, and mountains. It feels like I skidoo’d into Steve’s painting on the wall. #bluesclues

I’d like to thank my therapist for teaching me CBT and my bouldering buddies @lizgore9 & @kylekorbines for helping me learn to climb rocks for making this hike possible. Only had one small panic attack on the way up looking down at the 1000 foot drop on either side of me! Honestly a year ago my anxiety would have kept me from doing a hike like this - my hard work and self care are paying off!

Let's meet up in the beautiful Joshua Tree NP. Our next trip there will be Friday, November 16. We will be camping Friday Night. We will enjoy a nice, warm campfire underneath the starry sky in the peaceful desert. The following day, Saturday November 17, we will pack up and venture out to explore on the trails. It's going to be a lot of fun. You should join us.

I really hope they end up liking all that nature stuff, but mainly I hope Sam does not bump his head into the next rock and Emmi does stop whining about my choice of snacks.

One of our favorite historic park lodges, Yellowstone’s Old Faithful Inn, just closed for the season. A few weeks ago we were fortunate to catch a last minute cancellation there. It was one of the original rooms without a bathroom, and even though we had to trek down the hall to the public restroom to take care of business 🛀, we were grateful for the chance to stay in this extraordinary place again. What are some of your favorite National Park lodges? . . #yellowstonenationalpark #ynp #yellowstonepledge #wyoming #nationalpark #oldfaithfulinn #nationalparkgeek #goparks #findyourpark #usinterior #nps #lodge #road trip #travelstoke #beautifuldestinations #thatswy #visitwyoming #exploremore #americasbestidea #mytinyatlas #travelusa #historicarchitecture #letsgosomewhere #yellowstone

This was one of the more exciting hikes I’ve done! There were multiple times I felt like I was rock climbing up this granite wall and I loved every second of it! It also didn’t hurt that we had some lovely views of Acadia.
