Ugh, @thiswildwanderlust captured the slot canyons perfectly you guys. It was such an epic spot & my lens was just not handling it well, honestly. 😂 But Kaitlyn managed to get one or two of me in my element. Plus, look at how great the back of my head looks thanks to @jennifair_hairstylist 😍.
5 National Parks + one for all National Parks - it’s a decent start, but I have a lot more ground to cover!
Which is your favorite look - with or without color?
Quick reminder on shipping dates:
December 18 is the Last Day to order with standard shipping for your best bet at arrival in time for Christmas (or December 19 for upgraded shipping).
The shop will be open after that, but we’re heading out of town to spend Christmas and New Years with family, so any orders placed after December 19 will not ship until January.
My first eagle rays, and I’m in awe of their beauty! The ocean is filled with such stunning creatures, each with their own special purpose. Together they form a successful ecosystem. Some directly depend on one another, while others have indirect impacts; nonetheless, important to one another. #repost @sciencecedes
Our favorite national park visited in 2018 (so far) is Glacier National Park. This year we visited in August for the first time, and even with smoky conditions and part of Going to the Sun road closed, our kids have asked repeatedly if we could go back in 2019. We saw a bear, moose, eagle, squad of marmots, etc. We can’t wait to go back and explore more (and maybe get to see our first mountain goat). @glaciernps #glaciernationalpark#findyourpark#goparks#sharetheexperience#montana#nps102#nationalparkgeek
Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more.
Spent a few hours enjoying a peaceful sunrise at Glacier Point this summer. Turns out that after 2.5 hours of shooting (and chugging coffee...), one of my favorites was taken just strolling back to the car...
I’ve been out sick four days now and am starting to get more than a little restless wanting to get out to play. Heck, I’d be happy to work at this point. How long can a person stay buried in blankets, sipping hot tea and daydreaming about warm desert mornings?
Sunrise goodness. I love winter weather. 😍 There is something peaceful about waiting for the sun to rise in silence with only the sound of wind and birds beginning to stir. Definitely makes hot coffee ☕️ more enjoyable. Wednesday is over, let’s end the week strong everyone!

Usually I try to avoid visiting the same trails twice because there are so many beautiful places I want to visit in the national park system (and my list of trails is somehow never getting any shorter), but Sahale Glacier is already on the list for a repeat visit next summer! The hike to this spot is 6 miles with a butt kicking 4,000’ of elevation gain but I’d say it’s worth it 🙌
Around a year ago today, I said fugg it and drove myself over a thousand miles from home to reach Utah. The only thing I had planned was conquering Utah’s mighty 5 solo. I was sleeping on the dirt during freezing nights for a handful of weeks eating dehydrated meals and hotdogs. I spent all my time hiking and driving until I ran out of money and had to start making my way back home to Kansas City. What i wouldn’t do to live like a fake bum again...

A serene Zion sunset. Sunset in Zion National Park isn't as dramatic as in other parks due to the canyon running North and South, thus leaving the sun to set on the horizon well after the sun has set past the canyon walls. This, however, does not prevent the park from presenting itself absolutely beautifully during the sunrise/sunset times.
