Peekaboo and spooky slot canyons at grand staircase. One of my favorite days of the trip😍

Heartbreaking to think this national monument will be opened up for mining 💔

More fruit because there is literally nothing better than biting into a fresh juicy kiwi while gazing into paradise!
🥝🥝🥝
Personally, I eat the WHOLE kiwi👅 But always remember to pack out what you pack in && that goes for food scraps as well! So banana peels, cherry pits, orange peels, whatever u got, you’re committed to it! Please be kind to Mother Earth ❤️🌲✌🏼 Thanks loves!

It may look like nothing is growing out on the preserves but the plants are still blooming beautifully!

California Buckwheat turns a beautiful color in the warmer months. With blooms like this, it’s easy to love our preserves all year around.

There are some days where I feel I could conquer the world, and others, like today, I just try to stay afloat. But I know these days will pass, it is the ebb and flow of life. I’m surrounded by love and support; I couldn’t ask for anything more. Be kind to one another (and ourselves) for we never really know the journey of another. ❤️ + 📸 | @jeanmariebiele .

Wake up at sunrise, hike or drive a few hours to my next destination, maybe stop by a coffee shop for an hour or two to get some work done (gotta write a whole book while I'm doing this, after all), hike, catch the sunset, pass out, wake up still exhausted, repeat. As amazing as this trip is, I'm pretty excited to hole up in one place again and sleep for like, a week.

Yosemite Valley, the crown jewel of Yosemite National Park, reopened to tourists Tuesday after a three-week hiatus during its peak season because of an enormous and deadly wildfire raging in the area.

The fire, which has roared through 150 square miles of mostly forest and overgrown brush since igniting July 13, is the largest ever in the Sierra National Forest. Two firefighters died battling the blaze.

Yosemite Valley is a small fraction of the magnificent park that sprawls across more than 1,100 square miles. But it is home to iconic attractions such as Yosemite Falls, El Capitan and Half Dome(pictured above) that are the top draw for visitors from around the world. The valley was closed to tourists July 25. #alwayslumovate

Funny...when you escape into the wilderness with just what you can carry on your back, you have such a better understanding of what you really need. Food, water, shelter...the basics. If you’re lucky, some good company and beautiful scenery are bonuses. And that’s all you need to feel completely satisfied as a human being.

How incredibly disappointing to learn that parts of this park has been closed due to vandalism. The earth is all of ours, not one person’s to ruin, and it should be protected, not destroyed. My heart hurts a bit to think about the people who can’t access just a great natural area because of an idiotic decision by one person. Protect your parks. .

Just returned from an epic backpacking trip in Mt. Robson provincial park in Jasper... 30 miles of the most breathtaking scenery buried deep in pristine wilderness. I didn’t even realize places like this still exist, and thank God for that. Let’s protect them forever.

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Such an unique and beautiful place. Now know this. I try to not get political on here. I save that for my personal Twitter acct (sorry not sorry), but I am mad. Under new draft management plans from the Bureau of Land Management, most of the lands removed from the southern Utah National Monument would be available to coal mining and other extractive uses, even marking some 1,600 acres as disposal, meaning sell them off. I’m not ok with this. Not at all. We didn’t get to spend near enough time there this summer while driving through. I’m not sure when we’ll return and now I have no clue what we’ll find when we do. I’m sad, I’m mad, I want to do something. So I’m using my voice. Maybe you can too.

The third death close to my heart this year (if things come in threes...are we done now?) - my favorite neighborhood tree had to be removed. It took over the entire triangle (not really a square) and i saw it there right before I left for my trip in July. There will be a meeting about what to replace it with. Grateful to know that my grandma, aunt, and this tree only become more dear to me after losing them. Clearly I’m not the only one to love this tree. #trees #realtalk #endings #newbeginnings #lifecycle #deathispartoflife #griever #grieving #dontgrievealone #honorthedeadbyliving #lifecontinuesafterdeath #community #notalone #publicspaces #protectourparks #treelove

Listen y’all. I don’t have a clue what I’m doing after I graduate in the fall. Defining who you are, deciding what path to follow, it’s so freaking difficult. Happiness is hard, but when I put a camera in my hands, whether it’s film, digital, or instant, I feel like my future becomes a little bit more clear. Find what lights a fire in your soul and don’t give it up. Chasing dreams is totally worth it, the surprises along the way, good and bad, help shape us into who we are. (ps.. thanks to @courtkaycarroll for always sneaking photos of me that I don’t even realize she’s taking because I’m so consumed in capturing the world around me, telling story by story through my viewfinder. I love you best friend!)

Clouds combined with smoke from the Sprague fire last August made for an eerie yet beautiful scene at Lake McDonald.  It’s heartbreaking to see another fire at Glacier this summer.  Love to all affected, especially the firefighters ❤️🙏🏼

Being in a place like Alaska helps remind a person why such wild places require warrantless defending.⠀
.⠀
With the untouched wilderness and raw natural beauty, it’s no wonder Alaska is home to 8 National Parks and heaps of wildlife. ⠀
.⠀
We made it to just 2 of these 8 parks, and yet it felt like we were in a postcard everywhere we looked. From blue snow glaciers, to steep mountains blanketed in wildflowers and striped with minerals.⠀
.⠀
I am returning home full of gratitude today for spaces like this where you can see, hear, feel, and literally breathe the magic of the wilderness. #naturelover #protectourparks⠀

#TravelTuesday Thoughts: Had I been @glaciernps just one week later, I would be watching acres of this incredibly breathtaking park going up in flames (or most likely not been allowed near the lake at all). Wildfires are scary, but they also help create the delicate ecosystem that exists -- a cycle of creation & destruction.
•
Last week, I had the opportunity to stay with a retired engineer, now firefighter before he was called to duty overnight to battle wildfires in another state. He left his family, home, and vacation plans behind for at least two weeks and is currently working at least 12 hour days carrying 40 lbs of equipment in 100+°F temps. He has a deep respect and love for nature, and I'm glad I got to share some time conversing with and learning from him.
•
I've experienced remarkable places in four states for the first time on this trip. Wildfires hit two of the places just a few days after I visited, so I'm all the more thankful for those who risk their own lives to protect the life, history, and landscapes endangered by wildfires.

What's your favorite underrated state park? 📸: @smilinginsonoma 
_____
While it's hard to pick a favorite, I know the one state park that I've always had a special relationship with. 
St. Croix is the largest state park in Minnesota. It's a sprawling park covered with towering deciduous trees you can lose yourself in. Visiting in the fall while the leaves turn is one of the best ways to celebrate autumn! 🏕🏕🏕
For a few years after college I made sure to spend a weekend or two exploring here in the fall, and every year as the weather turns colder, my feet itch to go back - even though most Minnesotans consider parks on the North shore to be the state's best. 🌲🌲🌲
Share your favorite underrated state park below!

The Tetons welcomed me last night with an incredible sunset and made the 10 hour drive from Boulder beyond worth it. Today was an incredible day of exploring glacial lakes and canyons. Tomorrow I’m off to Yellowstone for the last leg of my trip!

Wish I was walking thru this beautiful park instead of socked in with wildfire smoke and ash headed to work. 🌱🐕🍄☘️. #nature #naturewalks #stanleyparkvancouver
road trips are very symmetrical experiences in that for every emotion you encounter you will, at some point, encounter its opposite. some days you’ll find paradise, other days you’ll spend most of your time sitting in a car waiting to get back to it. the beautiful part though is that everything eventually balances itself out - something cece said to me a couple days ago when I was encountering a string of bad luck. I guess all these words apply to life in general, but being on the road makes everything a bit easier to see. I love waking up in new places and wondering where I will fall asleep that same night. it’s not always fun, but it is always interesting. very grateful for this experience.

The Great Spirit told the people “Protect  especially the buffalo, for the buffalo will give you food and shelter. The hide of the buffalo will keep you from the cold, from the heat, and from the rain. As long as you have the buffalo, you will never need to suffer."

Badlands National Park was a magical place. We got to watch this family of bighorn sheep do their thing as the sun was setting. This was taken with a 300mm zoom lens, which is very important because you should never get too close to wildlife and their habitat. #temporarynomad #badlands #southdakota #nature #protectourparks #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark #optoutside #leavenotrace
The plants in Craig Burrows' photos looks like something plucked from an alien planet sprouting wild shades of violet, pink and green. But the plants, and colors, are real. 🌹🥀🌺🌻🌼🌷⚘
