#wowwednesday ⠀ The name “moulin” comes from the French word for”mill.” Water pouring down through these deep holes in the ice can impact bedrock below, resulting in deep potholes like one might find at the bottom of any waterfall. They are deep, noisy and beautiful.⠀ #nationalpark #nationalparks #findyourpark #nationalparkobsessed #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #ibrakeforbrownsigns #nationalparkservice #national_park_photography #usparksandmonuments #protectingparks #rangeroutdoors #nationalparksusa #MyNationalParks #wrangellstelias #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #wrangellsteliasnps #rootglacier #mccarthy #kennecott #kennicottmountainguides

So I guess today is #NationalMtnDay so what the heck,a shot of the culmination after XC routing through the Miter Basin over Crabtree Pass and hitting Whitney's summit to watch the sunset all by ourselves (seriously, how often does this happen on this mtn??!),it was a beastly 40something miles in by this time and to stand at the summit was too much for words. And I was tired. Really fucking tired lol. 7days in, is it bad to say using an actual toilet seat and eating fries while drinking an ice cold @stonebrewing beer was the best damn thing. EVER.

My imagination could never conger up such a place. With snow enhancing the autumn colors, I waited patiently for Half Dome to peak out at me. For a short while we contemplated each other then the clouds wrapped themselves around the mountain and the moment was gone. . . . . . #landscape #nature #earthfocus #master_gallery #nature_brilliance #picturetokeep_nature #naturewelove #discoverearth #jaw_dropping_shots #moodygrams #amazing_shots #abcmyphoto #ig_shotz #worldprime #splendid_earth #special_shots #earth_shotz #viewbug #greatshotz #ig_bliss #masters_in_photography #epic_captures #usinterior #nationalparks #parkroamers #usparksandmonuments #yosemite

Its been a week, but it was really something to be volunteering at the Capitol Building during the services of the late president Bush. . I had never seen the building lit up at night the way it was, and with the grounds restricted, it lent itself to a really stunning scene. It took a few days to warm up from standing outside for ten hours. Hope to be taking some more like this during my time in the area. . . . #dc #nationalcapital #usparksandmonuments #congress #capitolhill #capitolbuilding #washingtondc #washington_dc #adventurenthusiasts #architecture #earthpix #findyouradventure #neverstopexploring #nightphotography #goatworthy #liveoutdoors #majestic_view #modernoutdoors #ontheroad #photooftheday #viewbug #roamtheplanet #seeyououtthere #stayandwander #dcbuildings #uscapitol #uscapital #thediscoverer #traveltheworld #urban

The sharp contours and edges of these mountains are my favorite part of winter. The landscape transforms from the impossibly lush green of rounded hilltops to the gray and harsh descent of ridges into snow-covered valleys. It’s always changing and beautiful out here on Roan.

Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone. The terraces formed as the hot springs cooled and calcium carbonate got deposited over thousands of years. I would love to visit Yellowstone in the winter to see them in the snow! . . . . #mammothhotsprings #yellowstonenationalpark #findyourpark #yellowstone #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #yellowstoneforever #discoverwyoming #visitwyoming @visitwyoming @yellowstonenps @ynpforever #landscape #usparksandmonuments #iamatraveller #amongthewild #optoutside

Back lit trees besides Virgin River, against sheer sandstone walls, glowing in reflected light @zionnps. Leisurely walking along the river with just a old Nikon F100 with #velvia50. This moment captures three in one- backlight, reflected light and skylight. Knowing the dynamic range limitations of film simply forces you to look for right light and composition that sings with it. ******** #virginriver #virginrivernarrows #zionnationalpark #reflectedlight #ig_shotz_trees #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #usinterior #usparksandmonuments #naturalunited #longexpo_addiction #filmphotography #35mm #ishootfujifilm #velvia #westbysouthwest #stellar_shots #global_creatives #np10k #landscape_capture #landscape #landscapephotography #utah #yesvisitutah #ig_shotz #ig_myshots

This drawing is one of the first. As you can see the signature - or somewhat gimmicky - line in the sky I did not use yet. Here I still tried to draw the sky as well. Shortly after this drawing I kept it as a singular line. First I found the line to be the contrail of a rocket or something like that. It stated some sort of awareness on the sky which made me think of the idea morphic resonance by Rupert Sheldrake. Though the line has become somewhat of a gimmick, in each drawing I check if it still fits. The idea of a morphic resonance contrail still resonates with me. Quite far-fetched I'm sure for everyone but me, the typical associations roller-coaster ride of my mind. That said it gives a look into the kitchen, for what it's worth.

Photo credit to @mattymeis . I can't think of a more diverse National Park than Olympic. You can see the incredible see stacks, snow capped mountains and rainforests in a single day.

Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is a beautifully stark landscape. There are vast fields of lava that give the park its name, with just the occasional limber pine to break up the horizon. Until the 1960s, there were many more limber pines in the park, but the National Park Service cut down nearly 6000 trees in an effort to eradicate a plant with a holiday connection. Mistletoe is a parasitic plant that creates swollen limbs with many small branchlets. These are referred to as “witch’s brooms.” The National Park Service now recognizes that removing the trees in order to eradicate a native plant that was seen as “bad“ was a serious mistake.⠀ ⠀ #nationalpark #nationalparks #findyourpark #nationalparkobsessed #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #ibrakeforbrownsigns #nationalparkservice #national_park_photography #usparksandmonuments #protectingparks #rangeroutdoors #nationalparksusa #MyNationalParks #cratersofthemoon #cratersofthemoonnationalmonument #volcano #idaho #mistletoe

@Regran_ed from @dovidioa - One of the better shots from our trip to Dinosaur National Monument. That wide W shape just above the rock formation is the #constellation Cassiopeia, named for queen Cassiopeia in Greek mythology, who's beauty was supposed to be unrivaled. Though I think our #nationalparks give her a run for her money. #astrophotography #usparksandmonuments

@Regran_ed from @dovidioa - This is the #homestead of the legendary Josie Bassett Morris. She built this place in 1913, and lived here for 50 years. Fiercely independent, Josie ran a profitable cattle business from here as well as brewed apricot brandy and chokecherry wine during the prohibition years. Her can-do spirit and willingness to try make her one of my heros. #outside #america #usparksandmonuments

“You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it is better to listen to what it has to say” -Paulo Coelho #Thealchemist 💕✨ Obviously easier said than done. Right now I am working on making a guide about ‘how to follow to your heart without having to move halfway around the world’. . 🌏✌🏼 . I think a lot of times people think changes have to be big and drastic. But sometimes the smallest steps like signing up for that dance class, buying that camera or picking up that guitar can infuse purpose back into your life. . 💃🎵 . Do you have something your heart keeps telling you to do that you are ignoring? What would it look like to listen instead? Double tap if you’re ready to tune in! And stay tuned for my guide 👍🏼 . . . . . #followyourheart #mindfulmonday #motivationmonday #motivationquotes #liveyourbestlife #liveyouradventure #liveyourtruth #purposedriven #findyourpurpose #purpose #rockymountainnationalpark #borntoroam #betheadventure #journeysofgirls #travelgirlsgo #usparksandmonuments #adventureculture #adventureseeker #forceofnature #freshairandfreedom #portraitmode

When I go to NPS sites, I love to talk with the rangers to get an in-depth perspective of the park. The first time I went to @BigBendNPS, I asked a ranger what the one thing was visitors should understand about Big Bend. ⠀ He responded that there wasn't one, but three. ⠀ ⠀ First, the night sky wasn't degraded, and it was special for more than just seeing constellations-it's about understanding that for thousands of years, the night sky was a source of direction and creating of myths and morals. ⠀ ⠀ Second, visitors should be comfortable in the silence of Big Bend. ⠀ ⠀ Lastly, the natural landscape is intact and the river is not dammed in this area.⠀ ⠀ 📍: Big Bend National Park, Texas⠀ 📅 : October 2016⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #nationalparkgeek #IBrakeForBrownSigns #getolympus

Wishing a very happy birthday to my oldest! On our road trips, she is the navigator of the old school atlas, often the dj, and the best sandwich maker at 65 mph. This is her at #whitesandsnationalmonument #whitesands #newmexico #happybirthday

• Exploring Death Valley with hardly anyone around was unexpected. Even places easily accessible via foot traffic (like the one above) and isn’t far from the main road had no foot traffic at all. You would think that visiting this park during the Fall/Winter season would be popular, and I can only imagine how hot it gets here during the summer, I read that Death Valley reached its highest temp in 1913 at 134 degrees Fahrenheit. 😳

It looks pretty calm here but in reality, the wind was blowing so hard I physically had to brace myself from being knocked over (I still did a few times 😅). The views were still amazing though!
