A friend from Switzerland sent me this from his newspaper in Bern! Shameless self-promotion here. You can vote for the people’s choice award (and maybe win a new iPad :) and view some hilarious wildlife photos at comedywildlifephoto.com. I photographed this amusing black bear in April this year at Yellowstone National Park. ................................................... #yellowstonenps #wildlife #ynp #yellowstone #outsidebozeman #explorebigsky #funnywildlife #humor #FindYourPark #nationalparkservice #pictureourparks #nanpapix @comedywildlifephoto

This #tbt I'm revisiting #BryceCanyon, possibly my favourite #nationalpark so far (yes, I know, that's a contentious thing to say!). #BryceCanyonNationalPark was stunning that day, the weather was absolutely perfect too. I'd urge anyone in the area to go. Taken on my #Nikon #D300, with a #cokincreative ND grad to balance the sky and the foreground, all atop my #Manfrotto tripod. Oh, and all my gear lugged about in a #Loweprobags mini trekker AW. #nps #FindYourPark #travel #utahrocks #geologyrocks #ShareWICA #travelUSA #travelUtah #nationalparkservice #OptOutside #naturephotography #NikonNoFilter #meandmymanfrotto #nationalparkgeek #50statechallenge #USinterior #trustincokin

second chances. thankful these days for people in my life who haven’t given up on me. mistakes come easily, and i can over/under think things and make them more difficult than they need to be or not engage enough to make something work or be better. but i’m surrounded by family and friends who treat these moments in my life with grace and gentleness, of which i do not deserve. what i have learned is that we need extra shots at things. we need the ability to not feel like once is enough and if you miss it, you miss it. i have learned to offer this to others, and it’s for both close friends as well as new acquaintances. what i have seen is friendships develop because i chose to do that. to listen a little longer. to hangout one more time. to share a little bit more with. what i have missed are some of the same things when i haven’t done this. who knows what incredible people and experiences i’ve past over… may the art of second chances become more common in our world. may we choose to try it that one more time, and not give up so easily. may i learn to continue to live this way, more and more . . . . . . . . #aov #artofvisuals #canon_photos #canon #1dxmarkii #earthpix #visualsoflife #welltravelled #photooftheday #instagood #liveauthentic #exploretocreate #yourshotphotographer #lifeofadventure #ourplanetdaily #lonelyplanet #lensbible #neverstopexploring #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #deathvalleynationalpark #roadtrip #sunset #aerial #landscape #drone #droneofficial #droneoftheday #droneheroes #fromwhereidrone

Last Badlands photo (for now 😎)...We hiked the Medicine Root Loop out into the Badlands and loved getting out amongst the landscape. The stripes and colors in each formation are so unique. We really loved both of South Dakota’s national parks! . Yesterday, we drove up to Medora, North Dakota to see Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It’s supposed to rain all day today, so we’re just going to be getting some work done. But tomorrow, we explore! So stoked to see this beautiful area of the country. ✨✨

On my hike up the Precipice Trail for sunset, I ended up hiking along with these two. They had taken a road trip to Acadia for the week, and had traveled over 7 hours one way just to get there. It was their first time visiting just like I. We ended up talking together for quite some time, finishing the trail together, and then parting ways as it was getting dark. It kinda felt like a friendship was developing in just that short amount of time that we hiked. That’s one thing I love about the hiking community. For the most part, everyone you encounter has no barriers up that you encounter normally in everyday life. Everyone seems so willing to spread life, and to share generosity. People are people, and not just going about their daily routines in their own bubble. Even though I doubt I’ll see them again, it was pretty incredible to get to know these two for that one hike.

Mountain goat from the Hidden Lake Overlook trail. 1.5 miles each way and a very popular trail, so expect crowds. The trailhead is at the Logan Pass Visitors Center. ❤️

Camping alone is great, not having a climbing partner to try this sweet crack with is not so great. . Who wants to lead this baby so I can give it a try?!

No drones, or helicopters. Just a quick little scramble up the rocks for an incredible view of the opening of Santa Elena Canyon and the Rio Grande in @bigbendnps. Excited to be heading out West again🌵

I’ve spent nearly 2 days trying to think of what to say about this trip through Cascade Canyon to Lake Solitude! This was @mja390 and I first backpacking trip together, and it went by too fast and slow at the same time. We met so many friendly hikers and backpackers 🎒 tripped over too many boulders 😫 and had the most beautiful sunset and sunrise to ourselves (almost—we had at least 3 deer 🦌 visit us at our campsite). I cannot think of a better way or place to spend our 10th wedding anniversary.

With beaches, woods and waterfalls, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore can be toured by foot, kayak or boat. Seeing the shoreline from the water is truly not to be missed and for us, the reason we went! For the many pictures you see of people kayaking around the majestic rocks, know that it’s a serious endeavor with strict rules in place for safety. This meant forgoing our hopes of playing in this part of Lake Superior on our own. We were fortunate to book a sunset cruise with Captain Mark of Lake Superior Boat Tours who took all three of us (yes, Otis too!) on a fun, informative and beautiful tour to Grand Island and Pictured Rocks. There was heavy rain in days prior, making for intense falls, including a waterfall Captain Mark said didn’t even exist the day before. There’s no way to capture the intense beauty on a camera phone on a bobbing boat while your hands are kinda numb from the cold, but still, here’s a whole bunch to give you an idea of our experience. . . . #respectmothernature #picturedrocks #puremichigan #michigan #upperpeninsula #yooper #sunsetcruise #lakesuperiorboattours #munising #munisingmichigan #picturedrocksnationallakeshore #nationalparkgeek #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #dogfriendly #dogswelcome #bringfido #dogfriendlymichigan #shoplocal #teamotis #whatsthatrattle

How people swam the distance and escaped is beyond me. Fun Fact: Alcatraz was shut down because it was too much money to upkeep. Not because of the people who escaped! And bonus fact it is ran by the @nationalparkservice

Woke up way too early to get a view of sunrise over San Fran... But viewing the morning with each other was worth every moment!

Recién llegados a Barcelona, terminamos el repaso a nuestro viaje por Estados Unidos con un clásico de Yellowstone: el Grand Prismatic. Hemos visto lugares impresionantes durante esta ruta, pero Yellowstone se lleva la palma. Es otra división, un mundo en sí mismo que alberga la naturaleza más salvaje y fenómenos geológicos únicos #apuntesCostaOeste

The soaptree yucca uses stem elongation to stay above the advancing dunes. This yucca produces large cream-colored blooms on stalks in late spring. The yucca is a virtual “store” in the desert as American Indians used most parts of the plant. The young flower stalks are rich in vitamin C. The flower pods can be boiled or roasted like a potato. The leaf fibers were used for the fabrication of rope, matting, sandals, baskets, or coarse cloth. The roots were chopped and boiled to produce soap to wash hair, blankets, and rugs.⠀ ⠀ 📍: White Sands National Monument ⠀ 📅 : July 2017⠀ ⠀ #nationalparkgeek #IBrakeForBrownSigns⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #findyourpark#WeAreParks#FYPyes#nps102 #ShareTheExperience#npcapics#goparks#usparksandmonuments#NationalParkLife#nationalpark#nationalparks#nationalparkservice#npcollective#protectingparks#nationalparkobsessed#thenationalparkspass#NatlParkPodcast#publiclandsalliance#thegreatoutdoors#americasbestidea#wnpa1938#parksoflife

Whew, after a long weekend at Glacier National Park it’s been hard to get back in the rhythm. Plus, work’s a little crazy + I have lots of customs I’m trying to finish up. Can I just go back to hiking + staring at mountains + finding bears? K, thanks. . . . . #letsgoexploring #nationalparkservice #optoutside #girlswhohike #letteringco #bemorewild #beanoutsider #campinglife #bravofoxtrotdesigns

When hiking in Washington State, there’s something bigger than a bear 🐻 to be afraid of! • Here are my Top 3 tips to surviving a hike in Big Foot Country! (From Experience) 1. Always have beef jerky with you. Not for Sasquatch, but because it is delicious. Slim Jims work as a great secondary. 2. The only people who truly know how to defeat the forest walker are the Mom N’ Pop Gun shops. Read all of their billboards which almost always have a tip to stay safe! 3. Finally, stay close to the true vacationers. Their loudness and unknowing lack of respect for the wilderness is sure to keep Big Foot at bay. We all know he hates confrontation. Good Luck! • • #themountainsarecalling #nationalparkservice #bigfoot #bigfootsighting #sasquatch #sasquatchsighting #hesoutthere #getoffmytrail #stopfollowingme #freebigfoot #nps #olympicnationalpark #olympicnationalforest #beefjerky #slimjim

Finding water in the desert is a constant struggle. The river ran dry for miles, then became a trickle and finally a cool flow. The natural spring shower cascading down the canyon wall hours earlier made this find fairly anticlimactic. . . . . #escalante #desert #optoutside #findyourpark #nationalgeographic #natgeo #nationalparkservice #naturephotography #hiking #explore #utah #landscapephotography #pixel #pixel2 #nps #wander #wanderlust #wildernessculture #coyotegulch #grandstaircase #weliveelevated #escalantenationalmonument
