• Sunrise at Bryce Point •
I went down to Bryce National Park and camped and hiked all weekend. I’m tired and sore, but it was nice to get away and explore. I have now officially been to all 5 National Parks in Utah! ⛺️☀️
A or B? Ever had kidney stones? 😭 ===================================
Yesterday afternoon I got kidney stones. I’ve experienced a lot of different pain in my life, and kidney stones takes the cake. If you’ve ever had kidney stones, tell me about your experience. I’d love to hear your pain! 😭
Luckily I didn’t have the kidney stone until I got home from my photo op! I could have been in a really bad situation!
📸 To the photo. Yesterday morning was a beautiful sunrise in Wyoming. I’ve been trying to capture this composition for a couple of years now, and I finally got the reflection I was hoping for. The clouds were epic as you don’t get nice pink clouds at sunrise very often.
Here’s how my morning went. I only had an hour to spend here before heading back home. I left at 2:30 in the morning and had to take a detour as the bridge was closed, and it took me another 20 minutes going the other way. In the darkness I saw a moose, baby moose, countless deer and elk. Luckily I didn’t hit any of them.
Nothing like driving 5.5 hours for one shot! Would you drive that far for this shot?!
I hope you enjoy the photo!
With restrictions relaxing, I was fortunate to stretch my legs on a short local backpacking getaway with my boyfriend two weeks ago. However we weren't the only ones trying to take advantage of some fresh air. We arrived as late as possible to the trailhead so we could safely secure a parking spot with all the day hikers leaving. When we returned the next morning, the new day's wave of hikers were pouring in and trash cans were already overflowing by 10am with trash placed next to the over-capacity bins. It was a disappointing moment to see the lack of care for the place we have all waited so long to enjoy. Since I enjoy including a small gift for all purchases, any purchase from the planet onward/national park pin collection will also receive this lil reminder sticker to always Explore More, but be responsible and Leave No Trace! I hope we can all be a little more aware of our actions (not just environmentally but also socially) it's a crazy time right now and we must join together to overcome.

Quick phone edit of my favorite Milky Way shot from this weekend. Been chasing this for a while. More to to come after I edit the RAW files.
Only when walking in nature has it occurred to us just how tame and confined we've become. It's frowned upon to walk across the grass, but is this grass not the same stretch earth we drown in asphalt and concrete?
We lay down cement to create a path and tell man to walk upon it and only it; heaven forbid we venture off the path and into a wilderness that has always been man's to explore.
Our feet long to wander freely upon land unowned while also respecting the preservation of our home. Here's to planting our feet where we so choose, upon a home that was never meant to be claimed.

“I want no ordinary love. I want a fucking storm. I want sleepless night and endless conversations at 4am. I want passion, I want madness. I want someone who's able to make my whole body shiver from a distance and also pull me close to make sense of all my bones.”

Had a really hard time choosing a favorite shot from @joshuatreenps , this weekend. We were blessed with a perfect sunset for the Aguille de Joshua Tree.
While in my last post, I celebrated Upper Latourell Falls, the lower falls aren’t too shabby if you can beat the crowds.

I have been quite introspective lately, blown away by the tragedy and almost unbelievable-ness of the list of situations playing out before us on this planet. I recently moved to SLC from out East. In no way can I claim this city as my own but I am proud of the response of all of the people here fighting for better and fairer lives for those who have been systemically kept down. The heart and devotion of everyone in the United States to make lives better for all is unbelievable. These are the rights our forefathers intended you to exercise. To all the people out there fighting for a better life, I salute you and I hope to walk shoulder to shoulder down our path to freedom. I’m proud of my new city, Salt Lake!

A quick pit stop along the road to the first location of my #olympicpeninsulaproject highlighting places along the peninsula.
The Olympic National Park is primarily made up of mountainous terrain, with no mode of transportation allowed other than your own two feet. As a result, the interior of the National Park does not receive as much attention as the outlying areas that can be accessed via car.
Not everyone is afforded the same abilities to see the wilderness areas far away from trailheads. It is my hope to bring light to the Olympics so everyone will be able to witness the beauty that it has to offer, even if it is only from a photograph.
🌎UTAH🌍 Again our favorite Utah❗️ Life in Utah must be incredible❗️Utah just does not stop to impress❗️The beauty is shocking❗️ You just walking around enjoying the flats and suddenly... canyons which leave you speechless❗️🆒❗️
I usually enjoy views from the top, but we took a gander down south the last few days to scout out some mountains for this spring. I had to salvage a finger and two toes for my friends to let me check out the talk of the town... this mostly unknown to the outside world canyon and it is mind blowing. No grizzlies here, and we don’t really know why.
Another perspective of everyone’s favorite skittle-filled lake. Y’all liked my last pic of this spot so much that l edited another from a wider angle. It actually took me hours of driving around the lake to finally find a spot with colorful enough rocks for this pic, but it was 1000% worth it. Hoping to get back up to Glacier this summer for more exploring with my Montana homies. What’s something exciting you’re doing this summer? 🌈
