This is Pez (@pezxtheworld21). We had been talking for a few months on IG. Just sending random messages to each other in response to each other’s photos and stories. He’s lives all the way in Florida but one day I found cheap flights to Seattle and I put up a story asking if anyone wanted to come with me in early October. Along with my friend Olivia, Pez and two other IG friends reached out to me. Pez and Olivia were the only ones who actually made it. He loves to travel so much that he flew all the way from Florida with a long layover in Denver to come meet us in Seattle! It was a fun time with two awesome people despite having bad weather most of the time. . . My point in sharing this story is that not everyone you see online is a creep or a weirdo. In fact most people aren’t and this is why I’m actually active on this app. Of course before you go on a trip with anyone get to know them first but don’t be too skeptical. You might end up meeting some rad new people!! . . Photo taken on October 4th, 2018.


Waterfalls are cool! Same waterfall, different perspective. . . Anyone else notice the trash at the bottom left of the second photo? It’s the sad reality for many of these beautiful places. I always pick up trash when I’m hiking if I can get to it. This litter is in a precarious area and I didn’t want to risk falling. Just remember, if every single human packed in what they packed out, these places could stay pristine. . .

<————————- Swipe left . The Canadian Rockies are one of the most stunning places in the world. The mountains are endless. You can drive for hours and and hours and all you’ll see one mountain after another, after another. Thousands of stunning lakes, waterfalls, streams for miles, glaciers.... I’m sure winters are brutal up there but in the summer, this is my personal definition of heaven. . . . Photos taken on June 24th, 2018.


I say this every fall season, I wish I spent more time hiking when the colors were out. I just love this contrast between the yellow aspens and green pines! What’s your favorite part about Autumn? . . . Photo taken on September 16, 2018.


I like to think I have a good eye but using a standard lens with an older camera model is limiting me... so guess what? I’m getting a new camera!! Anyone have an idea of which camera I’m drooling over? . . These guys are so adorable and we saw them all over RMNP. As always don’t feed the wildlife. As cute as they are. they are “wild” animals. If you care about them and their well-being, don’t feed them and don’t approach them. . . Photo taken on August 24th, 2018.


Sunset on the Highline. . If you look up heaven in the dictionary and don’t find a picture of Glacier National Park, you should probably throw that dictionary away and get a new one. . . It’s crazy to think these glaciers will be mostly gone by 2050. . . . Photo taken on July 21st, 2018.


Only the 13th and 14th hikers to summit Desert Peak (7005 feet) in the Newfoundland Mountains according to the log book. This place isn’t easy to access and thank god @bence_sensei likes going off-road because if it was up to me I’d hike the extra two miles and avoid that old mining road. . . This probably isn’t the most “epic” place by most people’s standards but the remoteness of this place is amazing. It’s also a geologists dream with the different types of rocks that can be found here. . . Photos from this past Sunday.


See the trick isn’t to chase happiness. But to embrace what already makes you happy and have it more readily available to you. So stop making excuses and go climb that damn mountain! Book that flight to Europe. Go explore the place you’ve always dreamed of. You know it’ll make you happy so why don’t you just do it? Fit it into your schedule. Work smarter. Be diligent. And it’ll get you where you most desire! . . Teewinot is a special place. Teewinot is a Shoshone word that means “many pinnacles” or spires. In this case, this picture illustrates why the natives chose that name for these beautiful mountains. . . Photo taken on July 14th, 2018


To others your photo may not look like much. Especially if it’s the same photo that’s been taken a million times.... but to you it’s more than that. When I see my photos from my travels, the photo instills more than just a memory but a feeling. . . When I look at this photo, I remember how fresh the air felt. The sound of the calm gentle morning breeze. So cool and fresh. The water so still. The birds singing early in the morning. The smell of the pines. To me this picture is more than just what you see. It’s a feeling that I can’t simply describe. . . Photo taken by @timharris97 on July 14, 2018.


And just like that fall is gone and pre-winter is here. I’m going to miss the long days of sunshine and warmth. . . There’s still some color left in the canyons! But i think I’m overdue for a southern Utah weekend road trip! Anyone else down? Nov 3-4. Should be a blast! . . . Photo taken on September 29th, 2018.


Can we just agree that Canada is one of the most beautiful places in the world? (Not that I’ve been to that many places). . . Photo take June 24th, 2018.


Anyone else know that feeling when you imagine some place to look a certain way based on what you see in photos and then it turns out to look completely different? Usually in a good way of course. The PNW was that for me. At first I thought it was just waterfalls and trees everywhere but it’s more than that. It’s seriously one of my favorite places. The amount of adventure and exploration that lies deep within the heart of the PNW could last you a lifetime! . . Side note: the PNW isn’t necessarily known for fall color but I was honestly surprised at how much there was! . . Photo taken on October 6th, 2018.
