Somedays are not as bright and sunny as others, somedays you do not see the perfect blue sky with popcorn clouds, somedays you do not get the perfect reflection in water....yet nature is beautiful and the colors do not stop to amaze us!

Spent my Monday-Friday this week road tripping around the southwest. Our main goal was to get to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. And once we got there, Kevin proceeded to scare the crap out of me every time I turned around. But his bravery made for a pretty awesome photo op 📸 ..... ..... #grandcanyonnps #grandcanyon #adventurecouple #travelcouple #northrimgrandcanyon #toroweapoverlook #toroweap #roadtripusa #visitarizona #usparksandmonuments #teamkaptainkenny #findyourpark #mytinymoments #roadtripamerica #roadtripusa #desertlove

We went into the Arch during a visit in 2011, but I personally prefer the views from the outside.

A tourist admires the breathtaking views as sun illuminates the canyon!!! Is it Grand canyon? That's exactly what comes to mind when one looks at it for the first time. Created by same Colorado river and just before Canyonlands NP entrance, there is an amazing place called "Dead Horse Point State Park". A must visit if you are visiting Canyonlands... * * * * * #sunrise #deadhorsepoint #canyonlands #nationalpark #moab #utah #grandcanyon #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #usparksandmonuments #sunset #sunrise_and_sunsets #sunrise_lovers #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #travelblog #travelblogger #landscape_lovers #picoftheday #naturelovers #naturephotography #landscapephotography #passionpassport #natgeo #natgeotravel #lonelyplanet #earthgallery #fantastic_earth #earthpix #earthfocus #awesome_earthpix

We do love the reminders of our past, don't we? We romanticize them, hearkening back to a time that was quaint, more simple...and safer somehow. We typically know how to confront our history, because we've had time to dwell on it, weed out the unsavory parts, and hold on to everything that was innocent...and good. . . This past Wednesday, Janet and I drove to Salt Lake to see Jimmy Buffett in concert, and though I can assure you it was a great deal of fun, I've been deep in my cups ever since. I think it's because we learned to love Jimmy Buffett during our coming of age years. He was part of our high school dances, and we tried to record his songs on our cassette players so we could play them over and over again. He was much younger then, a singer with aspirations, ideas, and a whole world to be discovered...just like we were. . . 35 years after we first went with the son of a son of a sailor to Margaritaville, so much has changed. Jimmy has so many houses he can't remember which one he slept in last, and Janet and I have cashed in on some of our dreams and aspirations, and had to let go of others. Adults with jobs and kids can't normally pay the mortgage with their bare feet in the sand. And I'm thinking about all that now, 35 years later. . . But it occurs to me that the real takeaway in that story is not found in the old grist mill of this image...but rather the trees. Like the hickory and oak and maple trees, our lives have shed the outer decorations gathered through each stage, but the real strength of our lives is found inside...the rings that are added upon year after year. Our high school days are gone...the clothes we wore, the classes we attended, the addresses we called home, and even most of the people. But the experience is buried inside, in rings 15 through 18, lending strength and support to all that came after. . . I know much about me has changed. And much never has. But it's probably healthy to feel that old nostalgic pull when a grist mill from my past comes singing through one of my Wednesday nights, but my life is not only contained in the memories of what was; it is likewise held in the promise of what comes next spring.

Planning a trip back to Anacapa Island. It is part of the Channel Islands National Park. Just a short boat ride from Oxnard and you're at the base of the island. The rest is pure beauty like this view from Inspiration Point. #npspassport #np10k #findyourpark #usparksandmonuments #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #channelislandsnationalpark #anapacaisland #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #amazingplaces #bestplacestogo #liveauthentic #capturethemoment #fantastic_earth #beautifuldestinations #travelandleisure #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #neverstopexploring #exploretheworld

▪️Landscape Arch▪️ . Landscape Arch is the largest known arch, spanning 290 feet! It is so big and so beautiful. Up until a few years ago, the trail went under the arch but as pieces of it have fallen, it is no longer considered safe to walk under. Have you been here? This was our first time visiting @archesnps and we loved it! . . . . #sightseeingandsandcastles #archesnationalpark #nationalpark #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek

CLASSIC✨ // 👉 Here's a quaint, classic view of Yosemite Valley with a golden, crimson sunset and clear blue skies on a late September weekday. I'll be back in a month Nov. 19-21st to show my parents around (who aren't outdoorsy at all) 🙏😅 // 👉 •• How did you discover the outdoors? Was it through family vacations, or self discovery?

Murmuring out of its myriad leaves,⠀ Down from its lofty top, rising two hundred feet high,⠀ Out of its stalwart trunk and limbs—out of its foot-thick bark,⠀ That chant of the seasons and time—chant, not of the past only, but the future. - Whitman, Song of the Redwoods

Each major peak in the Grand Teton Mt. range has its own luster and unique presence. This picture taken with a wide angle then cropped doesn’t offer perspective how massive the Middle Peak truly is nor does this picture offer how large the glacier actually is related to this peak. However this picture does capture the eye view which is breath taken. We were just above 10ft. ele. Perspective is everything! — at Middle Teton.

Jones Lagoon: my favorite place in my favorite park! Marjory Stoneman Douglas said that the clouds were the mountains of South Florida. If that is true, then I’ll agree with Muir’s sentiment: “the mountains are calling, and I must go.” Happy First Day of Your Second Fifty Years @biscaynenps⠀ ⠀ #biscaynenationalpark #miami #homestead #florida #biscayne #flakeys #nationalpark #nationalparks #findyourpark #nationalparkobsessed #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #national_park_photography #usparksandmonuments #protectingparks #rangeroutdoors #cloudporn #reflection #mangrove #bisc50 #biscaynenps50

The Jelly and the Whale. ****************************************** I’ve been struggling with what to say in this post. I see a lot of beautiful and fascinating things in the nature. Nature isn’t always happy. Nature is also raw, and that can be jarring, but the natural course of death is beautiful and fascinating, too. The first picture is a piece of broken up jelly fish on the beach. I am just amazed at how clean it stayed after making it this far up a sandy beach. The second image is a dead whale (mostly likely a young Humpback) that we happened upon on Ruby Beach. These creatures are so big and the power of the ocean to push this body so far onto the beach is wild. #drivehikerepeat #washingtonexplored #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #pnwmoods #upperleftusa #findyourpark #optoutside #nationalparkgeek #np10k #usparksandmonuments #pnwisbeautiful #westbysouthwest #wildernessculture #amongthewild #roamtheplanet #thenwadventure #instagood #fromwhereistand #wanderlust #naturephotography #wanderwashington #washingtontrails #olympicnationalpark #onp #visitolympia #boldlywent #ocean #rubybeach #natgeo

Does it get much better than experiencing a moment like this in our National Parks? 📸: @drivehikerepeat #seemorewilderness _____ Sometimes it can take a lot of energy to find yourself in moments like these. Blocking off a weekend (or a few weeks) for your trip. Doing so much research about what you want to do while you’re at the park. Packing. Checking the weather forecasts. But moments like this - that’s when you know it hasn’t been for nothing. When you would do all the planning, packing and hiking one hundred more times to experience a view like this again — something you know at your core that you’ll never forget. And that’s what makes it all worth it. ______

Today Just rocks..... . . Literally 😬 . Don’t even know where to start. Flew into Vegas last night, met up with a group of women I had yet to be acquainted with, and jumped in our van to do the 2 hours to St. George... Woke up and hit the road before the sun was up to drive to Page and tour lower antelope canyon, directly followed by jumping on a boat to see it from the water- of Lake Powell, then over to horseshoe bend, then we raced the sunset to the South rim of the Grand Canyon. Now on the road to the next rest stop tonight to get a few hours of shut eye before we wake up before dawn again to begin our journey to the Havasupai falls... Heavens yes. That is all. . #bucketlistlife #doit

Bloated Orion . . Sorry about long gaps in my postings lately. While I always think of getting back to the rhythm, am unable to keep up. Hopefully, not forever! . . As we head towards the winter night sky & Orion the hunter rising early every night, I thought of posting about this constellation, which am sure is among the beloved constellations for many of you. This was the image I shot this Spring at Big Bend NPS using my Astro-modded camera mounted atop the iOptron sky tracker. The sky wasn’t clear as you can see and the thin passing clouds acted as a natural diffuser causing the stars to get bloated. Also, visible is the Barnard’s Loop (to the left of the belt).

A beautiful winter sunrise in the Dead Horse State Park near Moab, UT. This picture was taken in 2013 on my first ever vacation that we took with landscape photography as the focus for the trip. Until that point, the previous 6+ years were all focused on Wildlife. This trip in 2013 changed our vacations since then with emphasis on visiting different National parks, hiking to scenic locations and obviously to iconic locations. This trip was also our 1st foray to the South West. . . . #naturephotography #landscapephotography #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #sunrise #theoutdooradventurer #moab #deadhorsepointstatepark #adventures_shutter #utah #nature #deadhorsepoint #stateparks #instagood #photography #usparksandmonuments #mountains_seas_and_trees #visitutah #beautifuldestinations #nature_good #thenationalparkspass #earth_unlocked #iowaphotographer #indianphotographers #ourwild #hikevibes #wildernessculture #feedbacknation #seekmorewilderness

We didn’t quite make it to the top of Mount Conness. However, we got lost & threw lots of rocks.

TBT to the week I spent hiking around Zion National Park last October. The trail to Subway is easily one of my favorite hikes ever. Hopefully I can make a return trip and hike up the waterfalls again soon.

Throwing it WAY back to our very first road trip with our son - 2011 - he was 15mos 👶🏻. Working our way down part of the Bright Angel trail with our trusty @ergobaby pack!! It was still pretty icy in March and I was nervous as a first time mom, but the view was SPECTACULAR!! We had such a fabulous time - it hooked us and it began our annual national park voyage which BOTH kids now really look forward to ☺️ . •What started your passion for travel? . . . #parkseekers

Here’s a bit of a crazy bull for #wapatiwednesday. While in @grandtetonnps with a group of awesome photographers, we got hit with a decent snow flurry. As I was driving up the hill, I was hoping there would be an elk there waiting for me, and I got my wish. This dude was there chasing a few cows around. It made for some interesting photos in that much snow. . . #wildlife_photography #wapati #rockymountainelk #grandtetonnationalpark #wildlife_perfection #wyomingwildlife #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #rockymountainelkfoundation #visitwyoming #jacksonhole #utahphotographer #nikond500 #wildlife_seekers #tinesup #elk #tetoncollective #harnessyourphotography #usparksandmonuments #pictureourparks #natgeowild

The outdoors have always been a large part of my life but moving to California and experiencing mountains has grown that love all the more. Contrary to popular belief, Ohio is not known for their mountains so before seeing them first hand the only experience I had was with pictures of them. The Sierra's have taught me a lot about the payoff of a difficult trek and the beauty of natural lakes. There is something refreshing about the thin air above 10,000 feet . . . #usparksandmonuments
