The first time I slept in the back of my car was in this trip to New York when I visited letchworth state park on a cloudy night. I was still able to get the stars though through the long exposure. What a beautiful bridge and waterfall to relax and listen to nature to. #Travel #Travelphotography #travelphotooftheday #Photography #nkoehlerphotography #photooftheday #photojournalism #hoboh #natgeo #natgeotravel #inspirationbyworld #WorldWideCapture #NationalParkLife #parks101 #nps #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkgeek #Landscape_captures #exceptional_pictures #landscapephotography #landscape #yourshotphotographer #ig_shotz_jul18 #igerslandscapes #stunnersoninsta #letchworthstatepark

Land of the White Devil's Tower... This monument was known as the Ursine's Monolith (not originally in English) for thousands of years until invaders from far away lands renamed it something entirely. The new name stuck because of the brutal and forcefully changed power dynamics in these foothills. Yet it stands the same as it always has, resolute and indifferent, otherworldly as it points to the heavens.

So the Canyonlands Park Service makes a pile of rocks like this one (called rock cairns - rhymes with Karen - this one's for you @thekarenskinner) so that people like me with NO sense of direction can see which way the trail goes. These piles of rocks are not only helpful, but also add to the overwhelming beauty of the area. #rockcairns #photooftheday #discoverearth #naturelover #naturephoto #FindYourPark #Parks101 #moab #preservation #nationalparks #canyonlands #whatsoutsideourdoor #rvlifestyle #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks #usinterior #utah #fulltimervlife #natureaddict #travelblogger #utahgram #nationalpark #sonya6000 #fulltimerv #ayearwithmycamera #aywmc

Our next National Park series is the Canyonlands also located in Moab near Arches National Park. The area is full of not only these two amazing Parks, but many other "must-sees." For this reason, it is recommended you stay at least several days. Unless you are in a big hurry (which most of us are not living this lifestyle), try to stay a week or more. You'll be happy to stick around. Also, for those wanting to know where we stayed, let me know here and I'll gladly share the info with you. #FindYourPark #Parks101 #moab #preservation #nationalparks #canyonlands #whatsoutsideourdoor #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks #usinterior #utah #fulltimervlife #natureaddict #travelblogger #utahgram #nationalpark #discoverearth #optoutside #getoutside #wowutah #sonya6000 #ayearwithmycamera #aywmc

Day 8 | On the other side of Evolution Lake looking back where we'd just come from. You can see the clouds start to build up and darken... exactly what you don't want to see at high altitude in the Sierras...

Tahoe National Forest A Small Lie and a Smile. I had spent 14h driving on this leg of my journey to see her. "Only 2.5h to go. You can do it, dude". I put on Tool and Rage, turned the AC on and set it to go as cold as possible. "Let's go". Now... do I surprise her and just show up or do I make up a small lie? Lie. Always lie like I have so many times before. She hated it because I was ridiculously good at it and, well... she fell for it every time. I call her, she picks up and greets me with the sweetest "Hey baby! How's the drive?" Me: "I'm wrecked and I'm stopping in Tahoe to crash for the night. Also, kinda sick of dealing with California traffic. How are you?" She laughs, tells me to stay calm and that we'll see each other soon. I hang up and keep driving to her place. About 2.5h later, we made it. I park the car, take Rafiki out and start making my way up the driveway. I knock on the door and there's no answer. It's late, makes sense. I grab my cell and call: "Hey... tent is up and I'm ready to pass out. I wanted to say I love you, sweet dreams and have a good night". Her: "Thanks, baby. I love you too, and give Raf a hug for me". Me: "Oh yeah one more thing! Did you ever get the package I sent you? It said it was delivered today." Her: "What? No. What package? Wait... no... not again. Did you...?" I hear her feet crossing the floor, locks unlatch, and the door whips open. She shrieks, throws her arms around me and says "Why do I keep falling for it?! Everytime! Why do you keep doing this? Aaaaahhhhh!" "...because I love you, duh". She slaps my chest, gives me a kiss, another hug and then runs to the dog.

Day 8 | Walking around Evolution Lake. On the way up, everybody we passed said "enjoy it up there, it's beautiful!" And they were right. These alpine lakes are incredible. Little did we know what we were about to participate in just a few hours later though.

Once upon a time, a man was hurt fighting in a terrible war. Once he got home, the pain in his leg and his heart wouldn’t go away. So the 69-year-old man left his wife and 3 children in Ohio for this remote place in Utah (I suspect there's more to the story, but we'll never know). His eldest son settled the land with him where they lived in peace for 10 years! That is until his daughter came to visit along with her 2 children and husband. Upset by the living conditions her father and brother were living, she insisted they build a new home with a wooden floor and windows. The very home you see here. Now 6 people lived in this one-room 17 x 15 ft cabin - the ultimate tiny house! 🏠 #tinyhouse #tinyhome #cabin #offgrid #tinyhousemovement #wolferanch #FindYourPark #Parks101 #moab #preservation #nationalparks #archesnp #whatsoutsideourdoor #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks #usinterior #utah #archesnationalpark #fulltimervlife #natureaddict #travelblogger #utahgram #nationalpark #discoverearth #optoutside #getoutside

😑Beauty fades, dumb is forever😑 Следующее «почему» про Йеллоустоун о том, почему там действительно может быть опасно. И опять да, виноват вулкан. И неосторожные люди, которые думают, что это все штуки и аттракцион 🤦🏻‍♀️. Вулканизм делает в парке 4 вида красоты: фумаролы (клубы дыма из земли), источники, гейзеры и грязевые котлы. Все начинается с того, что вода из реки или от осадков просачивается в полости породы и нагревается магмой. А потом все зависит от того, через какое отверстие она решит выходить. Если совсем узкое, то получится гейзер или фумарола. Если воды мало, и она кислая, то получится грязевой котел. А если отверстие широкое, то будет источник. Объединяет их одно: горячая, даже нет – очень горячая вода, которая нередко очень кислая или щелочная... А обжечься горячей щелочью и кислотой никто не хочет. Во всяком случае, если ты в адеквате. Но неприятные случаи бывали. Только два года назад один человек полностью растворился, попытавшись проверить, насколько горяча вода. И таких случаев накопилось столько, что вышло уже два издания книги «Смерть в Йеллоустоуне»☠️. Не все опасности, правда, от горячих источников, есть и много случаев того, что люди просто забывают о том, что природа – дама своенравная. Порой, правда, человек глупо ей мстит. Например, этот источник раньше был синим, и даже называли его в честь колокольчика – Morning glory. Но потом нехорошие люди набросали в него мусора, поток воды в источник сократился, а сам источник колонизировали бактерии с желтым и оранжевым пигментом… Так что теперь он не утренняя слава, а Fading glory – ушедшая слава. Вывод тут простой: с природой лучше стараться быть в гармонии. Всем дзен 🙏🏻

*Of Bands and Ridges* This was the result of pulling over on the side of the road in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota.  Not a trail or overlook... just the side of the road, near sunset :).

This set of fraternal twin arches are different than most arches in the Park because they were formed by water erosion from above (called pothole arches) instead of the typical erosion from the side. You can walk right up to the twins down a quick 0.5 mile trek from the parking lot. #doublearch #archesnp #FindYourPark #Parks101 #moab #preservation #nationalparks #whatsoutsideourdoor #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks #usinterior #utah #archesnationalpark #fulltimervlife #natureaddict #travelblogger #utahgram #nationalpark #discoverearth #optoutside #getoutside #wowutah #sonya6000 #ayearwithmycamera2018 #aywmc #earthfocus

Day 7 | What's your favorite place that you've ever camped? This was one of mine. Our camping spot was next to a perfect creek and footbridge, and the sunset was amazing on the mountains. The next day we'd be heading up Evolution Valley and the enormous Muir Pass.

Happy Constitution Day- on this day in 1787, the United States was formally united under our current federal system of government. In many ways, this day, and the compromises made to accomplish this system of governance are far more meaningful than what we celebrate on July 4th. While the signing of the Declaration of Independence was revolutionary in its action against Great Britain and a statement to the world on what and who America was, the framing of the Constitution puts those ideas into motion. The Constitution ensures that our ‘experiment in enlightenment’ goes on. May it forever be so. _______________________________________________________ #Statueofliberty #findyourpark #statueoflibertynationalmonument #ellisisland #ellisislandmuseum #ladyliberty #newyork #thestatueofliberty #statueofliberty #nyc #FindYourPark #GoParks #parks101 #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkobsessed #usinterior #wnpa1938 #experienceyouramerica #protectingparks #americasbestidea #naturephotousa #npcollective #protectpubliclands #natparkexplorer #monumentsforall #optoutside #parksoflife #thenationalparkspass #sharetheexperience _______________________________________________________ There’s some irony in using Lady Liberty for Constitution Day. Her tablet is inscribed with “July 4th 1776”. Based on what I just pontificated on, above, perhaps it should be inscribed with September 17th 1787.

Don’t Bust the Crust! One of the things you learn when visiting Arches National Park is that everything is alive - even the dirt! The soil is made up of microbial communities that create a matted crust on top of the sand that retains moisture, creates nutrients, and provides plants a foothold. As a result, you constantly see signs like this one throughout the Park reminding people NOT to walk on the dirt. Unfortunately, you also see footprints like these ignoring the signs, tramping on living things, disrespecting this beautiful Park. I believe we are fortunate to have National Parks like the Arches to enjoy, learn, appreciate, and inspire. But if people don't respect the rules as this sign clearly indicates, things will change. In fact, Arches is already discussing limiting the amount of visitors per day. In other words, you will have to make a reservation to visit. And if they're full, just like when you try to make a restaurant reservation, you'll be turned away. 😢 #followtherules #respectnature #FindYourPark #Parks101 #moab #preservation #nationalparks #whatsoutsideourdoor #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks #usinterior #utah #archesnationalpark #fulltimervlife #natureaddict #travelblogger #utahgram #nationalpark #discoverearth #optoutside #getoutside #earthfocus

The Arches National Park landscape is raw wildness that touches your soul. As Edward Abbey says in his book, Desert Solitaire (which I read last year and recommend), “Standing there, gaping at this monstrous and inhumane spectacle of rock and cloud and sky and space, I feel a ridiculous greed and possessiveness come over me. I want to know it all, possess it all, embrace the entire scene intimately, deeply, totally." 📖 #DesertSolitaire  #EdwardAbbey #FindYourPark #Parks101 #moab #preservation #nationalparks #whatsoutsideourdoor #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks #usinterior #utah #archesnationalpark #fulltimervlife #natureaddict #travelblogger #utahgram #nationalpark #discoverearth #optoutside #getoutside #americasbestidea #exploremore #naturelover #naturegram #landscapelovers

It was a bright sunny day. We were on the way to point reyes, thats when I saw this iconic shipwrecked fishing boat. I instantly recognized it. I feel really sad to talk about this boat. This boat has been photographed a thousand times and I must say it’s a beauty to the eye. But thanks to an amateur photographer who thought it would be cool to take an long exposure light painting picture, initiated sparks from the burning steel wools and burned down the boat. Do you think this is cool? This boat was a beloved iconic landmark and a popular subject of photography. If you can not respect your subject and calculate the risk factors, you should not try such things. Accident might happen sometimes; but we should be responsible for our actions. The entire sterns of the boat had been destroyed due to the fire. Destroying something just for a picture is not worthy... it’s not cool. The cool thing to do is to be respectful about the places and maintain the safety precautions.

Amber Is The Color ⛰ . . . I found this gem waiting for me deep within my backlog, as if gold when sifting through sand. How I managed to overlook it a year ago is beyond me, but working with this image took me right back to this place. To me, this lone tree was so much more the star of the preserve than the dunes were. It's hard to explain, but now that I have this image, maybe I won't have to. . . . 📸 [Camera] Olympus OMD EM-5 . . . #getolympus #m43 #wanderlust #travel #adventure #exploring #journey #sober #soberliving #soberlife #addiction #addictionrecovery #recovery #recoveryisworthit #soberaf #depthsofearth #gotravelexplore #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #parks101 #greatsanddunes #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #theimaged #depthsofearth #hope #faith #love #artthroughphotography . . . @getolympus @matthewgenuit @nationalparkgeek @national_park_photography @nationalparkservice @depths.of.earth @theimaged @greatsanddunesnps @___coloradical___

This giant stands tall at 128 feet! That's the equivalent of 21 people who are 6 feet tall standing on each other's shoulders. Eventually, this 3,600 ton boulder will come tumbling down where all the king's horses and all the king's men won't be able to put balanced rock back together again. 🤴🏼 #boulder #balancedrock #landscape #naturelover #naturephoto #naturepic #FindYourPark #Parks101 #moab #preservation #nationalparks #whatsoutsideourdoor #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks #usinterior #utah #archesnationalpark #fulltimervlife #natureaddict #travelblogger #utahgram #nationalpark #discoverearth #optoutside #getoutside

🏜Was in Siberia and survived, but hiking in a desert in summer almost killed me 🏜 Мы вернулись. Как же после недели мотелей и постоянной дороги хорошо поспать на своей кровати 🤘🏻. Но можете делать ставки, через сколько нам снова захочется в путь 😅 Арки были нашей спонтанной идеей заполнить свободный день до отлета домой. Собственно, парк этот знаменит своими арками из песчаника, которые образуются, как и многие другие геологические красоты юга-запада США, за счет эрозии. Парк красивый и необычный, но есть одна заковыка: невероятная жара. Даже трехкилометровый трейл кажется пыткой, хотя в обычных условиях он бы прошелся легко. Так что видимо, остальные национальные парки в окрестностях останутся на зиму 😑. А у вас уже есть план на зимние каникулы?

Ring of firey color. Did you know the dazzling colors found in the hot springs come from bacteria? The orange bands, are often cooler than 149 degrees and you'll find Synechococuccus bacteria and Chloroflexus bacteria, which also contains chlorophyll, for photosythensis, and carrot-colored carotenoids. 📷: @muffyclarkgill • • • • #Yellowstone #Yellowstonepledge #yellowstoneforever #YNP #nationalparks #yellowstonenationalpark #ynp #findyourpark #parks101 #nationalparkgeek #americasbestidea #awesomeglobe #discoverearth #earthfocus #NatGeoInspires #naturephotography #neverstopexploring #ourplanetdaily #travelstoke #wanderlust #Wildernessculture #travel #optoutside #wyoming #thatsWY
