I recently began a Buddhist meditation class. One of the hard parts of being Michael is that my brain is a constant churn of thoughts and worries. It constantly demands new and exciting stimulation or distraction from boredom or unpleasantness. This makes being present very hard, especially on a Tuesday that feels like a Monday. I am hoping meditation can help me become less beholden to every thought. An analogy I learned is that of the waterfall, which represents all the mental and physical phenomena I experience. My brain's constant need to label, categorize, and moralize every sight, sound, touch, taste, smell, thought, emotion, etc. is the water that tumbles heedless over the cataract.  Normally we are "in the stream" falling over the falls with our thoughts and emotions. The goal of vipassana is to stand underneath and behind the waterfall, watching the stream of phenomena from a detached viewpoint. I am not there yet, but look forward to journey. So back to the grind with me. Meanwhile, let's all take a deep breath or two! #meditation #vipassana #yosemitenps #yosemite #nps #usinterior #bestmountainartists #outbound #naturegeek #mountainman #adventure #hikingadventures #wildernessculture #choosemountains #naturephotography #naturelovers #findyourpark #mypubliclands #optoutside #landscapephotography #pictureoftheday #photooftheday #instatravel #instagay #gaygeek #sharetodaysadventure #mothernature #picoftheday #bestnatureshot #rei1440project

The last month has been a slow one. Haven't gotten out much because of money and life and such. City life sucks. But I start EMT training this week, so that's cool. But here's White Sands from last month. . . . . #whitesandsnationalmonument #whitesands #alkaliflattrail #mypubliclands #nps #nationalmonument #bluetick #bluetickcoonhound #coonhound #rescuedog #rescuehound #adoptdontshop #ruffwear #dogsthathike #dogsonadventures #houndsofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram

The new year is a time to reflect...with an eye on the upcoming year. My time mountain biking in northern California and Oregon is a good memory. Looking forward to great times on the bike this year and sharing them as a Guerilla Gravity brand ambassador.

Repetition. There is beauty in performing the same simple acts time and time again, in noticing slight improvements, in learning a new skill. There is also tediousness and frustration...until a breakthrough is made, until *the* breakthrough is made. Taking photos has become making photos has become creating art. It will never be perfect, but it will always be done in love, shared from love.

😍 Totes wanna go! FROM @mypubliclands - #NewYearNewAdventures: After a long day of hiking, is better than easing your tired body into a hot spring, well, unless you take in that nurturing heat under a blanket of stars. Manby Hot Springs is located just 13 miles to the northwest of Taos, New Mexico, and nestled within the Río Grande del Norte National Monument. After parking, you descend about a quarter mile into the Gorge to the river’s edge and Manby Hot Springs. A few trail tips, If you plan to go at night, take a good headlamp or light; the trail is a non-groomed trail so have some good shoes for the walk and don’t forget your towel. . .

I miraculously woke from my pizza coma this morning, just 45 minutes before sunrise. Gathering my gear, I headed out with @nik.hardiman and @ajenanyan to shoot the last sunrise of our trip. - Mission success. - On our way back, @ashleyandthevan told us to get our butts over to the south end of the park to scope out this massive bull that had bedded down in a thick layer of fog. We stalked in, trying not to disrupt the big guy and his girlfriend as they munched away on some sweet, sweet grass. Thankfully, we all walked away uninjured and with some seriously cool shots. All in all, another solid day in the Teton Valley. • • • • #stayandwander #nikonnofilter #earthofficial #earthfocus #grandtetonnationalpark #igshotz #wildernessculture #theoutbound #theworldshotz #magicpict #beautifuldestinations #usinterior #mypubliclands #tetoncollective #mountains #landscape_lovers #beautifulmatters #nationalparkgeek #theimaged #jacksonhole #grandteton #thecreatorclass #master_shots #ourplanetdaily #earthpix #moose #thatswy #mountainstones #naturegeography #visualsofearth @nationalparkgeek @usinterior @grandtetonnps @tetoncollective @visitwyoming

Thunderclouds. The North Cascades are a bit notorious for finicky weather. This trip was no exception. We had a slim weather window and missed it. Ended up getting stranded an extra night in the pouring rain because a glacial stream had turned into a dangerous torrent. And our car was on the other side. We were down to our last scraps of food, had to pitch our tent on a soaking wet, steep slope, listening to the water roaring all night. The next morning all was well. We crossed the now mellow creek and made it back to the trailhead. But it wasn't over yet. The only road out had been washed out by the storm. Fortunately a road crew was already on the job, so we sat near the car and feasted on the food we had left inside. I still have to make a date with Forbidden, to make up for that fateful trip in 2009. They don't always end with a summit selfie. #mountains #mountaineering #northcascades #hikewashington #stormclouds #weather #glacier #mypubliclands #beprepared #pnw

This is not a picture of a dark sky because I don't know how to take those very well. Ok, not at all. It's in the planned learning curve for someday. But anyway. Why a dark sky? Because my teeny tiny little hamlet of Torrey was just named an International Dark Sky Community. We are the first one in Utah and one of only 18 in the entire world to be so designated. Why is this so cool? Because the Milky Way is awesome, seeing the gasping beauty of a truly star-filled sky can be a transformative experience, and light pollution is a global menace that helps distance people ever further from their natural surroundings. So come to Torrey. We got one kickass beautiful dark sky.

Spent the last few days exploring our National Parks on the drive back from VA. Needless to say @grandcanyonnps left me speechless.

Sunrise in J Tree. I kicked a cactus while wearing Chacos and learned that tennis shoes might be a better idea for night-time pack-ins. Also for the fact that we stumbled across black widows and other things that don’t pair well with bare feet.

After several days of strong snow storms a couple winters ago I was able to visit Crater Lake for some much needed snowshoeing. While sunsets conditions over the lake never materialized, the incoming fog surrounding the rim gave a surreal look to the frosted trees. . . . . . . . #bestoforegon #exploregon #bestofnorthwest #jj_oregon #oregonwild #iloveoregon #traveloregon #craterlakenationalpark #craterlake #oregonexplored #NPS #FindYourPark #usinterior #Nationalparkservice #morethanjustparks #nationalpark #goparks #mypubliclands #lifeofadventure #stayandwander #exploremore #thegreatoutdoors #beautifuldestinations #ourplanetdaily

Someone forgot to set his alarm, over slept, and missed his window to hit Franklin Falls this morning before the crowds. I suppose that's what I get for geeking out and killing aliens with a few buddies late into the night. So, let's pretend that I'm back at Yosemite strolling in Hetch Hetchy. Meanwhile, an urban hike will be on today's agenda! #yosemitenps #yosemite #nps #usinterior #bestmountainartists #outbound #naturegeek #mountainman #adventure #hikingadventures #wildernessculture #choosemountains #naturephotography #naturelovers #findyourpark #mypubliclands #optoutside #landscapephotography #pictureoftheday #photooftheday #instatravel #instagay #gaygeek #sharetodaysadventure #mothernature #picoftheday #bestnatureshot #rei1440project

I made a spontaneous trip to the Tetons with @kurtisminster @nik.hardiman @drew.meyer for my first ever winter experience. I’ve had to wear multiple layers each time we’ve gone shooting, but it sure is beautiful here. We shot the sunset tonight at Mormon row which is usually extremely popular however because of the snow and the road closure, we had to walk a ways to access this view which gave us a lot more solitude. Admiring the Tetons anytime of year is amazing but during winter, it is truly magical.

Dim prospects? The sun sets over Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah, recently shrunk by order of the White House.

Highway 1 was closed due to landslides. I slept over in a brand new camping in Williams Hill for free. And inherited a fire from local ATV enthousiastes. I was surprised to find out the public lands are used for shooting guns.
