Posting it! I'll be sharing a lot of non-astro and astro stuff over the next few months. The yearly desert pilgrimage is over, and I have nearly 7000 images to show for it this time. When will I be back? Who knows. This spot was shown to me by @matthewmikkelsen and I couldn't be any more grateful. The man came down the hill and all he could say was "Hey! It's fucked up over there!". It seriously was in the best way possible. This overlook was yet another local suggestion from the Hanksville Blm office. Do. Not. Sleep. On locals. Be respectful. This is their backyard, and they will show you the way if you are kind. Shoutout to @seth_shoots for hitting the shutter, because the place I put my camera was just as treacherous as the place you see me standing. 🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️🔷️ @nikonusa D750 @sigmaphoto 28mm 1.4 Art @vanguardworld Veo Carbon

I’ve been seeing posts of the poppy fields pop up the last few weeks, have y’all every heard of them? I never have. Ever! They are pretty magical. I stood there staring at them, imagining them fluttering in the wind, dancing in a storm. It reminded me of the poem In Flanders Fields, written by John McCrae.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ In Flanders fields the poppies blow⁣⁣⁣ Between the crosses, row on row,
⁣⁣⁣That mark our place; and in the sky
⁣⁣⁣The larks, still bravely singing, fly⁣⁣⁣ Scarce heard amid the guns below.
⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ We are the Dead. Short days ago
⁣⁣⁣We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
⁣⁣Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
⁣⁣⁣In Flanders fields.
⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ Take up our quarrel with the foe:
⁣⁣⁣To you from failing hands we throw⁣⁣⁣ The torch; be yours to hold it high.⁣⁣⁣ If ye break faith with us who die
⁣⁣⁣We shall not sleep, though poppies grow⁣⁣⁣ In Flanders fields.

If you were to put a bullseye on the face of #benlomond #mountain , this would just about be dead center 🎯. I was happy to retrieve my whippet pole literally about 50 yards from this spot. Right behind where I’m standing to take this photo is one of the coolest water features on the face of the mountain (see video in next slide). The view across #ogden with both Lewis and Mount Ogden lines up isn’t bad either. #thisiswhereilive #thisiswhereiroam #ogdenutah #myogden #thisisogden #myadventure #suuntoadventure #suuntosquad #utahisrad #werutah #adventurewithme #goatworthy #pushpeaks #mountainviews #westbysouthwest #utah #visitutah #ogdenadventure #waterfalls #in2nature #mountainscene #alwaysgo #iphonephotographer #adventurefirst #adventureon

Stormy Sunset Lone Tree Mountain 3. This was out where there had been a fire 3 years ago and you can see the burnt old trees as the sun set over the mountains in the distance.

We made our campsite 6 miles deep in the Sawtooth Wilderness. We struggled to find flat ground to put up tents but the youngsters didn’t have any problem finding places to put their hammocks. Dry ground was basically nonexistent. ________________________________________________________ #Idaho #Sawtooths #SawtoothWilderness

This last week my wife and I were blessed to have a new baby boy join our family! The whole family has been excited and with everything going on, I haven't been shooting much. A few days after we got home from the hospital I took my two oldest daughters camping. This was shot just a little ways off from our camp site above Tibble Fork, Utah -- Specs: 1/200 sec, f/10, ISO 100 -- #optoutside #naturalutah #unrealutah #wowutah #werutah #sonyalpha

Although it was forecasted to rain the whole day, @mikey_que and I woke up to clear-ish skies a couple weeks back on the border of Arizona and Utah. A short hike back off the road and we found some neat layers of 100 million-year-old entrada sandstone, basically a big-kid playground 🏃🏻‍♂️

As soon as you are comfortable with something, it’s time to switch things up. I used to be riddled with anxiety with change or more specifically getting out of my routine. I have been working on my taking care of myself mentally and physically. My only regret is that I waited so long to accept my weaknesses and do something about it. • • • VC @tchudatwentyfour #weekendvibes #sup #slotcanyon #desert #beutahful #canyoning #wowutah #werutah #wanderer #sheisnotlost #stayandwander #optoutside #findyourpark #neverstopexploring #xputah #adventure #mentalhealth #beautifulexplorers #naturelovers #girlswhohike #hikerbabes #mountainchicks #utahisrad #wowutah #exploretocreate #utahgram #theoutbound #hikeutah #adventureaddict #utah

This morning was a great way to start the weekend - fly fishing with my new fly rod @redingtongear. Thanks to my amazing wife for encouraging me to go and making it happen. And thanks to Jason Greenwood for teaching me the ropes. Silver Lake was breathtaking! Snowy mountains, blue skies, serene water. Loved getting away from the hectic city.

Since the Earth never stops moving, adventure never ends. This fault line in Box Canyon is the weak point that became the source of the cave I was standing in, and can be seen directly across the canyon. When water carves a canyon, it follows the path of least resistance, which is often along existing fault lines. Just as water shapes weakened landscapes through its strength, we are shaped when we use our strength to work on our own weaknesses. It is the combination of the two that produces growth. #ImportedFromWisdom #EscalanteRidge . . . . #MindfulWandering #utah #spiritofthewest #werutah #goatworthy #utahunique #utahillustrated #utahisrad #utahgram #alltrails #campmanapproved #igutah #hike #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #optoutside #explore #weliveelevated #divine_deserts #liveadventurously #hikingadventures #adventure #hiker #wanderlust #travelgram #createyourtrail

Journal! Do you keep a journal? Writing in a journal on a regular basis helps with planning, ideation, personal development, mental health, and numerous other things. Albert Einstein's journal shows the development of his theories over time and how he learned to challenge his own assumptions and barriers, and those of his fellow scientists. Whether your journal is kept in stone or online, it documents your own story and becomes part of history. There is no right or wrong way; the trick is that you do it. But don't deface historic sites in the process. #EscalanteRidge #MindfulWandering #importedfromwisdom . . . . #utah #wilderness #wanderer #utahscanyoncountry #weRutah #utahunique #utahisrad #divine_deserts #np10k #utahgram #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #youtah #spiritofthewest #wanderer #igutah #alltrails #soulofthewild #utahillustrated #sharetheexperience #explorer #traveladdict #abandonedworld #abandonedplaces #adventurelife #liveadventurously #wandering @abandonedearth @columbia1938

Pure power! Sometimes a job calls for pure strength and might, and the Union Pacific 4014 Big Boy delivers it as the biggest locomotive on the planet. At 1.2 million pounds, it weighs more than a Boeing 747. Including the tender, it's 132' 10" long. Commissioned and built during World War II, it was designed to haul iron ore from Wyoming over the Continental Divide to Utah, for processing into steel to support the war effort. The constraints of the war (limited manpower and need to quickly haul resources) resulted in a locomotive with 2 sets of drive wheels. Union Pacific has spent the last 4+ years restoring this absolute beast in preparation for the 150th Anniversary of the Completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, and brought it to Ogden to celebrate. #EscalanteRidge #importedfromwisdom . . . #EscalanteRidge #goldenspike #americanhistory #wanderer #railroad #adventures #igutah #utahgram #weRutah #weliveelevated #utah #railfan #railways #utahunique #xputah #livetoexplore #goatworthy #beUtahful #igsouthwest #bestofthebest #visitutah #adventureculture #trains #travelholic #explorer #optoutside @utahisrad @utahillustrated #traveladdict #wowutah #westbysouthwest @uprr @historyphotographed

Your efforts to build something of value can last a lifetime and sometimes longer. Square Tower in Hovenweep National Monument has lasted almost 800 years. Build on a strong foundation though so your efforts don't topple over. Timeless principles are the foundation for a successful life and organization. Principles like humility allow one to receive further knowledge to move forward, because "Humility facilitates the flow of information." -Chris Fawson #MindfulWandering #importedfromwisdom . . . . #EscalanteRidge #westbysouthwest #wilderness #utah #wanderer #werutah #adventures #igutah #utahgram #utahillustrated #weliveelevated @alltrails #utahunique #createyourtrail #xputah #happypeoplehike #goatworthy #beaUtahful #igsouthwest #travelers #divine_deserts #abandonedworld #forgottenplaces #explorer #visitutah #soulofthewild #optoutside #utahisrad #abandonedplaces #westbysouthwest @allabandoned @shingoprize @abandoned.earth

Barriers make for beautiful backdrops in life. They help us align our perspective and can draw attention to our immediate and distant goals. What are some of the barriers you've climbed that have helped orient your life?
