Cascades, Tuolumne River, Yosemite -I have been trying to work my way through a backlog of images taken in Yosemite and the Eastern Sierra last month. This shot was taken during one of the last smoke-free days before the Ferguson fire filled the park with smoke.

The 19th Amendment--it's part of how we got where we are today.

On the anniversary of the ratification of the amendment to the U.S. Constitution that gave women the right to vote, we want to thank all the women and men that made it happen. #DYK women suffragettes were imprisoned at #Occoquon for their protests in Washington D.C.? How did the right to vote help you on your journey?

(2/4) The newspapers may have declared suffrage lost in Tennessee, but the fight was not yet over. All summer, in Nashville, the fight between the members of the suffrage and anti-suffrage movements had been brewing and on August 18, 1920, it would all come to a head. The battle for Tennessee became known as the War of the Roses with those for the suffrage amendment wearing yellow roses, signifying support, while red roses were worn by those in opposition. #histpresinc (..) ~

Storm clouds throughout the park have brought sudden showers one minute and bright skies the next. August is looking a lot like fall! •

Sundown Lake, Olympic National Park. Beautiful little lake, quite the adventure to get there, but worth the effort! We hiked I yesterday and stayed the night. It's in a beautiful cirque and we had it all to ourselves. The quiet was incredible and the stars in the middle of the night were breathtaking!

One of the first things we did after getting married in @grandtetonnps was to go on a bike ride from Dornan’s to Jenny Lake. Today, almost 3 years later, we were able to relive that joy! Living my best life with this one here.😍

Oh, man. Another wonderful father-daughter national park trip is in the books! Olympic National Park was our target this year and we soaked it in — rainforests, beaches, high-altitude hikes, and more. Can’t wait for next year’s adventure! #OlympicNationalPark #findyourpark #nps #nofilter

Backpacking last weekend, Ozette to Rialto Beach. Trail was much rockier & more challenging than I had anticipated, and part of me said "Never again!" when we finally made it to the end. But now my blisters are fading and my muscles don't hurt as much and the pictures are so pretty... Maybe I'll go again someday. 😂

This cute little COY popped up a snag for a quick peak at the world around him before descending to romp with his siblings.  Mom fed upon berries nearby.

The last hikes of our 7-week cross country road trip, the love of my life @alecjosephbates with his #BodaciousBeard and I hiked to base of one of the southernmost glaciers in the US at Great Basin National Park. We are home now. I wish we were still on the road.

This time last weekend on the Chattooga River at Pig Pen Falls. Crushed our theory/superstition that bass only hang out in slower moving water. Crushed the flash minnow too; even the little ones are vicious 💥

The days I live for are those that I know will become a memory some day. The times when I stop for a minute + think, "this will be a tale I'll still be telling years from now." In these moments I dearly hold on to every emotion, feeling, + thought. I ingrain every ounce of my being into this self-aware state. For these times are sacred chapters in the story of my life 📖🖋💕

The Tetons are freaking magical. I can’t stop dreaming about the hundreds of scrambles and low 5th class routes up so many of the peaks

Here’s what’s even more fun: this campsite was free. We’ve yet to pay a dime for a single campsite during our trip. Goes to show you can find some pretty incredible places with a little extra effort. Thanks to @kesleighw @masseyventures for this gem 🤟🏼 .

Fun fact - the Smith River is one of the longest continuous rivers in the US. It has no dams on it and that is why it is so clear!

midnight at the top of the world, elevation 12,000 ft. driving up a mountain road with some spin chilling turns and drop offs in total darkness was pretty sketchy but definitely worth this experience. being over 2 miles above sea level made the Milky Way feel just a little closer than usual 🌌 .

This section of the trail up to Half Dome was one of the most beautiful parts. It was also the ultimate stair master of a workout! This is also where I met a girl on the trail who decided to do Half Dome on her own! I thought that was so awesome of her! She didn't even up making it up the cables but still! Even her attempted solo gave me the utmost respect for her! 💪🏼 I commended her for that. I felt pretty much on my own during this section of the trail because a certain someone just jetted off way ahead of me leaving me to myself 🙄 and I took all the breaks I wanted because there wasn't anyone there to rush me! 😋 But it also got me thinking that if she could do this alone I could do solo hikes too! But it seems so hard to find the courage to go alone. But my life is going in that direction, at least in the adventuring sense. I can be an independent women anywhere else in my life but hiking I feel very dependent on having someone there with me. Maybe it's safety or having accountability and who will take my pictures?? I know we all think that! 😆 But I envy those men and women who can go it alone and crush the hike! A solo backpacking trip would be a huge achievement in my life, even if it was just an overnighter!🚶‍♀️

I recently finished reading Biophilia, a book about the interactions between human and nature. In the book, E. O. Wilson states that values are time-dependent. People want to ensure the protection and health of themselves and the earth for future generations, so long as there isn’t a great personal cost of doing so. Deforestation, rising temperatures, depleting sea ice, and a growing issue with plastics may be imminent problems and have profound impacts on future generations, but humans only look forward and a lifetime or two. Getting people to fully grasp the severity of the problems takes an immense amount of time and effort, and requires a listening ear to start with.
.
In a world of consumerism, a strong conservation ethic isn’t instilled in many people these days. And for others, doing little things, such as skipping the straw, makes them feel like conservation heroes. The truth is, although each little action helps, that isn’t nearly enough. We (me included) need to examine all aspects of our lives and look for areas of improvement. We need to think of how to best spread the message on how to reduce waste, reverse climate change, and stop the loss of the few remaining natural areas.
.
Of course, we can’t go out and stop all plastics production, stop the use of fossil fuels, etc. We need to balance choices to continue prosperity in the present, but protect our resources for the future. But as Wilson says, “To choose what is best for the near future is easy. But to choose what is best for both the near and distant futures is a hard task, often internally contradictory, and requiring ethical codes yet to be formulated.” The least we can do is try to improve...

I recently finished reading Biophilia, a book about the interactions between human and nature. In the book, E. O. Wilson states that values are time-dependent.

Wider angle on the Howe Ridge Fire outbreak Sunday with the sunset breaking-through. I pray this is the last time I’m within range of something so powerful, loud and destructive.

We’ve been road tripping National & State Parks across the US & Canada. Our experience seeing, hearing, smelling & feeling the fires across nature has been disheartening & maddening. It’s left us feeling sad & hopeless at times. We’ve also been continuously reminded of the resilience, fight & beauty of true nature & those who choose to support and champion for our lands & creatures.

A lava tube is an underground opening formed by lava that melted the rock as it pushed through, then retreated leaving behind a tube. Lava tubes are discovered and can be accessed when a collapse occurs, creating an opening to the outside world. Our planet is so awesome!

Zebras are very fast-moving animals, and can reach speeds of up to 65kmph when galloping across the plains. This is just fast enough to outpace predators such as lions. Foals can run with the herd within a few hours of birth.
