The Milky Way over El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. There are some lights from climbers ascending the face of El Capitan and Half Dome. Seeing the stars is always awe inspiring… looking forward to the Milky Way season. Have a great week everyone.

Maze of Probability _ My head hurts thinking about you Running away from you Whispering thoughts of regret Trying to forget A quiet crash over me Wounded up like strings through a maze of roses Only to quiver Whisper Whisper Whispering over me carefully ever so quietly We hit the floor The chances we get Through the haystack of lost chances. It's a long way back from where we were Pull my hand out of the water to try harder Going inside to sight her. Passin' by Passin' by Wait___ Wait___ for the moments we had as kids Believin’ in ourselves that we'll find each other It's definite Definite to lose one another. Leaves blowing over my eyes Masking the thoughts about you It's always so much harder when we try We have to try Wake Waking to the moments gone When you look at me That way . . Description: I wrote this poem about someone in my life years ago and a lot of people loved it, so I decided to share this.

The sunsets in Yellowstone were something else. Took this photo over Yellowstone Lake, which is absolutely humongous at 136 square miles in size. The vastness of the lake makes it seem like you’re at the beach when you’re sitting on its shore. . . . . #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstoneforever #nps #nationalparkgeek #usinterior #mypubliclands #hiking #trails #awakethesoul #allaboutadventures #photooftheday #wanderlust #sunset #rei1440project #optoutside #keepitwild #thatswy #discoverwyoming #sonyalpha #visitwyoming #stayandwander #wyomingmagazine #wildernessculture #stayandwander #lake #yellowstonelake

Today is the birthday of Major John Wesley Powell, a U.S. soldier, geologist, and explorer of the American West. Powell and his team were the first known explorers to successfully run the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. This year is the 150th anniversary of that historic run. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can’t wait to be back on the river later this year, but until then I’ll dream of towering canyon walls, beautiful light, the sound of the river, and good times with friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Birthday to Major Powell, and thank you for leading the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #arizonacollective #explorearizona_ #instagramaz #IGSouthwest #ig_bliss #optoutside #landscapephotography #landscape_lovers #becauseaoutside #arizonahighways #outdoorproject #wildernesssociety #nationalparkgeek #amongthewild #grand_canyon_conservancy #grandcanyon #nationalparkphotography #GoGrand #grandcanyonnps #visitarizona #exceptional_pictures #natgeoyourshot #passionpassport #national_park_photography #instagood #coloradoriver #americanrivers #wearerivers #johnwesleypowell

Fragile Landscape Arch. At a 290 ft. span, Landscape Arch is one of the world’s longest arches. The trail that led below the arch was closed in the 1990’s after several incidents of falling slabs and boulders. The thinnest section of the fragile arch is a mere 6 ft. thick. The safer, rerouted trail still reveals amazing views of this famous arch. #travelphotography #landscapephotography #naturephotography #outdoorphotography #nationalparkphotography #nationalparkstraveler #nationalparksusa #nationalparkgeek #hike #erosion #geologypage #outdooradventures #optoutside #neverstopexploring #explore #naturelovers #discoverearth #earthofficial #earthoutdoors #archesnationalpark #arches #moab #moabutah #visitutah #utahunique #utah #discovermoab #igsouthwest #southwest #tundertravels #

Yeah, I used to live in Japan 🇯🇵. As soon as I saw photos of the Falls online I knew I wanted to break out my gear that I used to hike and explore in Okinawa. I think if I told people this is Southeastern Asia they’d believe me 😅. . .

Mammoth in the winter. It’s the only visitor center open in Yellowstone during the season and despite the cold and snow is an amazing experience. The hot springs constantly fume while bison and elk may graze or take a nap outside your window. Location: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.

I still have lots of pictures to share from my Grand Canyon backpack trip a couple weeks ago, but I have been starting to getting excited for mountain adventures with the weather warming up. This was from last autums’s adventure on the Maple Pass Loop just outside of in North Cascades National Park. Absolutely one of the most beautiful loops I have been on. . . #nationalpark Washington #FindYourPark #NorthCascades #alltrails #hiking #nature #Adventurenthusiasts #AmongTheWild #teamvane #awakethesoul #westbysouthwest #allwilderness #roamtheplanet #keepitwild #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #mountains #NP10k #nationalparkgeek #NationalParkLife #national_park_photography #washingtontrails #CascadiaExplored #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #pnwcollective #pnwdiscovered #pnwonderland

This week we celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary in Death Valley (not sure what that says about us 😂). That means next year he owes me a trip back to Santorini - it was a promise we made when we went after a year of marriage and it felt so far away! We are a case of opposites attract in many ways, but I wouldn’t choose anyone else to be by my side for all of our adventures. Here are just a few ways: 1. He’s the extrovert, and I’m the introvert 2. I follow the rules, and he questions them 3. He’s loves the adrenaline rush, and I tell him to be careful 4. I would give all of our money away when we travel, so he holds onto it and does the bargaining 5. I’m a night owl, and he’s an early bird. Based on these, which of us are you more like?

Now this is why you bring bear spray when hiking! Can you see the paw print? Lucky for me it was a day or two old! I came across this paw print on the Frazier Discovery Trail in Shenandoah National Park. The paw print itself was just over 6" wide by 6" long, meaning the black bear probably weighed around 250 pounds. If the paw print is square it's a front paw, of its longer than it is wide its a back paw! Based on how dry/set the print was and the debris within it i would say this print is around a day old, maybe two. #adventureanywhere #amongthewild #alltrails #blueridgemountains #bears #catchmeoutside #explore #findyourpark #findmeoutside #facts #goparks #greatoutdoors #getoutdoors #hikerslife #hikingadventures #ilovehiking #lifeofadventure #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark #pawprints #radparks #shenandoahnationalpark #shenandoah #seekthetrails #wildernessculture #wildlife #whyihike #wanderlust #wandermore @visitvirginia @visitshenandoahvalley @shenandoahnps @shenandoahtravel @goshenandoah @bears.for.you @nationalparkgeek @nationalparksguide @national_park_photography @national_parks_traveler @nationalparkobsessed @usa_nationalparks @nationalparkservice @nationalparkspartnership @parksproject @goparks

The foggy conditions in the morning obstructed most of our views, although every now and again the wind would shift and we’d get an incredible view of the valley floor and cinder cones dotting the landscape.

Some of the best preserved archeological sites in the US! "Mesa Verde National Park was established in 1906 to preserve and interpret the archeological heritage of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from 600 to 1300 CE. Today, the park protects nearly 5,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States."

• We visited the Grand Canyon this week on a very cold day. It snowed on us, then the sun would come out for a few minutes and then it would rain or snow again. I loved seeing the fog in the distance moving through the canyon and over the layers of rock • #inawe #7wonders . . . .

Park 11, Denali National Park! Named after the mountain, you’re lucky if you can catch a glimpse of her without getting a permit and being dropped off deep in the backcountry. There’s still plenty to explore, and an abundance of wildlife. I’ll never forget the first bull moose I saw grazing right next to me on the road, or the moose friend I made when I was searching for beavers. It’s easy to have a nice isolated hike here, so I was happy I didn’t meet a bear. . . . #denali #alaska #nationalpark #findyourpark #parkaday #travel #america #roadtrip #hike #nature #denalinationalpark #nps #nationalparkgeek #moose #mooseselfie #thealaskalife #ilovealaska #alaskalife #naturalalaska #optoutside #wildernessculture #theoutbound #themoderndayexplorer #denali #travelalaska #travelstoke #thefinalfrontier #alaskaproud #mooselife

The infinite textures and lines of the desert 🌵. . I love how remote this image looks, like there wasn’t a person in sight. In reality, this is a popular destination in @deathvalleynps , and it will be crawling with people within an hour of this photo 😂. . But if you arrive at sunrise, and the wind has blown the footprints away in the night, it can still feel like you’re the only person on Earth (at least for an hour or two). Many thanks to the @nationalparkservice for this gift 💝 . . . #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #deathvalleynationalpark #getoutside #sunrisers #gratefulfornature #hikenevada

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly... There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair.

I fell in love with national parks when I went to the Grand Canyon for the first time a couple of years ago. Now I have a life long bucket list of visiting every one (I even have my national parks stamp book 🤓). Next park is Big Bend in Texas next month! If anyone has any Texas, Austin or Big Bend tips/must-sees, send them my way in the comments 👇 ✨

Grand Canyon is one of the most beautiful places in the country, and also one of the worst to photograph. How can a picture do justice to the size and magnitude of these gigantic mountains? No camera will be able to truly capture the beauty of this place. Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. —————————————————————— Love this photo and want to see it on your wall?
