Missing him 💗

We got away from the sh*t air for a few days. Headed to some of our favorites. Hiked “Ding” and Upper Calf Creek. Could actually see the stars at night. It was interesting to hike Ding with no standing water. However it was the desert in August 🔥. The hike itself was easier, but we should’ve started in the early morning to avoid the heat. Managed to wear-out the dogs and ourselves. In fact, I’m pretty sore. #hiking #utah #goblinvalley #grandstaircaseescalante #sanrafaelswell #boulderutah #torreyutah

This man in our life just celebrated his 34th birthday! 🙌🏻🎉 Every birthday he conquers a hike/run to set the tone for his new year. He got up at sunrise and ran along the edge of this ”Little Grand Canyon.” Views for days!!!! Not really kid-friendly of course, but if you have a chance to escape without kids for half a day, this is a must-do! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #utah #sanrafaelswell #thewedgeoverlook #littlegrandcanyon #experiences #exploreutah #experienceutah #joy #utahisrad #neverstopexploring #beinthemoment #joyisnow #famtripsinspo #lifeelevated #visitutah #wowutah #beutahful #westbysouthwest #createandexplore #igutah #getoutside #getoutstayout #joyisnow #makememories #travelguide #thewedge #trailrunning #werutah #naturalutah #famtripsinspo

Whoooo dang, getting that west-bound itch again. Hell, just getting that traveling-shoes itch again. Vermont is my forever place, but imperative to that is my freedom to roam.

This is the Little Grand Canyon or Wedge Overlook. It's in the San Rafael Swell in Emery County, Utah. I've been here lots of times, and I never see any/many people but I always almost get hit by lightning. So it's very dangerous.

Such a great weekend! We started out in San Rafael Swell camping and running #devilsracetrack with the #redrockcrawlers. The trail was fun with good people. It ended at I-70 so if course my sexy wife and I headed to Moab. It was hot, but blue skies and red rock are just good for the soul! #sanrafaelswell #moab #wmysexywife #itsajeepthing

Totally scored in my wanderings today!!! Nothing like finding an old cowboy camp! 🤠 I was told by a old time local that there was a hideaway in this area that Butch Cassidy was know to hang out at...would be so rad if this was it! I will probably never know.😟 #butchcassidyhideout #desertwanderer #wandering #exploringutah #neverstopexploring #luckyfind #cowboycamp #wildwest #emerycounty #cedarmountain #familywhoexplore #familieswhohike #familyouting #hikingfamily #sanrafael #sanrafaelswell

Nature is my sanctuary. Where I can sit quietly and listen to Mother Earth. Feel the wind on my face that has traveled countless of miles across the beauty of the earth. My time to shut off the everyday life of the city, stress, and hustle and bustle. If you shut off your mind and just listen with your heart and body, the earth speaks to you, and I ALWAYS welcome her, and what she has to share with me. 🌎💚 #littlegrandcanyon #thewedge #sanrafaelswell #happyplace #desert #desertrat #readytogo #explore #adventure #exploremore #nature #naturelovers #utah #beautahful #utahisrad #werutah #werutahgirls #getoutside #gooutdoors #earthing #recharge #notallwhowanderarelost #wilderness #earthchild #hike #justbe #idhikethat #ancient #lovemyhome #natureismychurch 🧡🏜 📸 @jeremyv2presents

ALWAYS bring extra food, plenty of water and a map. Didn’t follow my own advice today and almost paid a bad price for it. Also, whoever left their bike in the middle of nowhere forty feet up a canyon wall.....it’s still there. #sanrafaelswell #utah #hiking #outdoors #canyons #stupiditywillgetyoukilled.

The San Rafael Reef - A wall of Navajo sandstone that marks the eastern boundary of the San Rafael Swell. Different layers can be seen leading up to the reef. At some point in time these layers were probably all relatively horizontal to each other, but 60-40 million years ago a massive anticline pushed the land into the sky forming a massive dome, thus the SWELL. Much of the dome has eroded away leaving a wonderland of canyons and buttes. . #sanrafaelswell #sanrafaelreef @utahisrad #utahisrad @wowutah #wowutah @werutah #werutah @utahunique #utahunique @pictureline #picturelinepicoftheday @usinterior #usinterior @beyondthelands #beyondthelands_ @natgeoyourshot #natgeoyourshot @fromwhereidrone #fromwhereidrone

@shanemode, the pups and I took the Casita down to the San Rafael Swell for some camping and canyoneering! The first day, Shane and I did a technical canyon, Knotted Rope, which was a series of endless potholes, so lots of swimming, down climbing and pothole escapes! It started raining a bit on our exit so it was a little slippery and I "got to" have a bonus 100ft butt slide down to a pothole (see photo #2). Then, a long hike out via the Muddy Creek. Today, we took the dogs on a few canyoneering trips to do some pothole swimming of their own! Try and spot Itsy and Augi in some of the photos--they were quite the explorers today!

“The Wedge” or “Little Grand Canyon” is the perfect day trip from Green River. You’ll see some of the amazing scenery in the Swell, plus it’s a great area for ATVs/UTVs. #sanrafaelswell #wedge #greenriverutah #utahisrad #utahisamazing #greenriver #destinationgreenriver #theswell

Even though it is hot hot hotter than hell out here right now, And my skin is as crispy redbrown as this slickrock, Oooo the desert, She calls to me. I thought about quoting just about all of Edward Abbey’s “Desert Solitaire” to kick this off, But I’ll save it for another day. Wouldn’t want to mislead you into thinking that my posting this photo Is about anything other than a childlishly selfish desire To go play in my big, red, dusty backyard. Because let’s be honest, The root of all of this - The teaching, the coaching, the yoga, the running, the hiking, the swimming, the fruit, the music, the move to Utah, It’s all about one thing: Play. I’m here to dive in and get dirty, my friends. In this one precious life, I’m here to play. Sure, I often take the game very seriously, Because I’m a sweet little human meaning-making machine, But at the end of the day, It’s all play. Lila, baby, the divine play of the universe. . :📸: @robin.a.glover (thanks, ma!!) . #outdoorwomen #goplay #desertrat #getrad #getsilly #notsoserious #shehikes #visitutah #foreveryoung #lila #consciousness #livingyoga #mindfulness

This is the Solstice picture I went to Black Dragon Canyon to take this of the ancient pictograph worshiping the Sun.  Problem was the sun is at it's highest during the Solstice and the angles didn't work out how I wanted.  I was laying on the ground to get this picture. I think the angles will work out better (and he'll face the sun better) during an Equinox or the Winter Solstice (if I want to drive in the snow). So I'll try it again later to see if it's better. But it still turned out to be a decent picture.

Little Wild Horse Canyon and Bell Canyon, July 2018. This hike is an hour outside of Green River and if you do the full loop it’s about 8 miles, but you can make it as long or short as you want. If you’re looking for a great slot canyon that is non-technical and accessible to all ages you should try Little Wild Horse. #greenriverutah #slotcanyon #sanrafaelswell #littlewildhorsecanyon #utahisamazing #utahisrad

MY COMPASS at night is the North Star, pointed to by the Big Dipper. I photographed them here, behind Eagle Canyon Arch, back in April. This large arch is located in the remote San Rafael Swell region of Utah, and was named by the Swasey brothers who ran cattle here and built a cabin at the mouth of the canyon in 1921 that's still standing, and on the State Register of Historic Sites. - My TECHNIQUE: Swipe left to compare this photo with the next. The next photo has no glow to enhance the Dipper and North Stars — so they get lost in the sea of stars. The glow was produced by using a Tiffen Double Fog 3 filter over the lens (explained on page 66 of my @Milkyway_NightScapes eBook). The unique thing about this filter is that it causes only the brightest stars to glow (well, mostly)! - To control the strength of the glow, you can leave the filter on for only part of your exposure, or do what I did: blend the filtered shot with the non-filtered shot to your taste, by controlling the opacity of the filtered layer in Photoshop. - EXIF: Canon 5D Mark iii • Canon EF24mm f/1.4 @ f/2.8 (to control coma) • ISO 8000, 20 seconds. Normally, you’d want to go only 15 to 10 seconds when shooting the stars with this focal length; however, when composing this close to the North Star, there is much less rotation from the earth, and you can get away with 50% to 100% longer exposures w/o star trailing. The arch is lit with Low Level Lighting from 2 filtered LED panel light about 200 ft and 600 ft to camera-left. . #MilkyWay_NightScapes #nightphotography #nightscaper #sanrafaelswell #utahisrad #utahgram #igutah #wowutah #werutah #beautahful #starrynight #starrysky #starscape #starphotography #stargazing #northstar #constellations #constellation #ig_nightphotography #intothenight #nightscape #nightscapes #nightscapephotography #night_shooterz #nightshot #nightsky #nightshooters #night_excl #nightphotography_exclusive
