The reason we came to PEI! The Anne of Green Gables House! This is the house that gave LM Montgomery the inspiration for the most treasured of children's books. It was a gloriously beautiful day full of sunshine that gave so much scope for imagination! . . . #letsgoeverywhere #greengables #welivetoexplore #findyourpark #iamatraveler #travelawesome #themoderndayexplorer #neverstopexploring #igtravel #wanderlust #travelstoke #theoutbound   #bestdayever #liveyouradventure #getaway #ilovetravel #instago #travelpics #instatraveler #travel #lovetotravel #traveldiary #mytinyatlas #exploremore #bookporn #traveldeeper #doyoutravel #anneofgreengables #annewithane #explorecanada
"Irrespective of hour or season, whether viewed on clear days or stormy, the Tetons are so surpassingly beautiful that one is likely to gaze silently upon them, conscious of the futility of speech." 🏔️ -Fritiof Fryxell • #MyGrandTeton #FindYourPark • NPS Photo/C. Adams (cja)
Farm sweep. 🍎 🍏
Still in awe over this golden hour in Acadia last weekend. After a rainy day, we imagined sunset would be a wash. Just goes to show that the classic Maine saying is true: if you don't like the weather, wait a minute.
Day one in the Grand Canyon and my legs are dead. Backpacking should be interesting. #hiking #grandcanyon #gopro #exploremore #optoutside #findyourpark #roadtrip #solotravel
Sneak peek. Foothills Parkway from Walland to Wears Valley opens soon and it’s going to be epic!
FRIDAY means it’s playtime in the alpine for the next 48hrs.

Once we stopped hiking at this high alpine lake, it got cold fast. And dark. Very dark. (We brought headlamps!) #fnfws #fieldnotesfromwildspaces
A snowy day at Bryce Canyon! Utah is usually a place of spectacular cliffs and imposing landscapes, but I found Bryce Canyon a much softer, relaxing place that was still equally as visually appealing! - - - #brycecanyonnationalpark #brycecanyon #nationalpark #nationalparks #findyourpark #utah #hiking #view #canyon #snow #desert #mountains #outside #thegreatoutdoors #outdoorslife #outdoorsman #travel #wanderlust #travelgram #instatravel #explore #exploremore #adventure #adventureisoutthere #gopro #goprophotography #wildernessculture #optoutside #beautifuldestinations #landscape

It’s been a crowded park this week at Arches on the trails to Landscape, Pine Tree, Delicate and Skyline Arches. Lots of rain too. More than we had all summer in the PNW. #arches #archesnationalpark #findyourpark #protectourpubliclands #getoutside #takeahike #southwest #desertsouthwest #hikeutah #wanderlust #ohtheplacesyoullgo #rvlife #homeiswhereyouparkit #homeonwheels #lifeisgood

@Regran_ed from @virginislandsnps - Did You Know? 🌵 The Turk's Cap #Cactus (Melocactus intortus) is a genus of cactus #native to the #Caribbean , Central and South America, and Mexico? 🌵 This special #plant is even represented on the Turks and Caicos flag! Turk's Cap Cactus can be found in dry, open areas, so head over to the east end of the #park to the Ram Head Trail to find one! #findyourpark #virginislands #nps / a.finney

so much color inspo 🎨
Autumn is in the air, and I’m back to my old haunts in the Boston countryside. Just fifteen minutes from my former apartment in Cambridge, the massive 2200 acre Middlesex Fells captured my attention immediately. I discovered this gem of a reservoir within the Fells on my very first visit to the city prior to accepting a job there in 2016…it quickly became my go-to place of solace. Since then, it’s evolved from just a pretty place to one steeped with good memories. It’s there that I ripped off my blindfold post-lasik and experienced true sight for the first time in my life. It’s there that I spent both of my birthdays that passed while in Boston. And it’s there that I spent many an hour meditating, contemplating life, or just messing around on a ukulele. A little over a year has past since my last visit, but the Fells will never get old. What place is special to you? ⠀⠀ While the leaves are on the cusp of changing here in Boston, I hear they’re peaking up in Maine! I’ll be chasing them this coming week to Acadia. Happy to be back out on the East Coast, but there’s still plenty of pictures to share from my journeys on the West – stay tuned for some more in the meantime while I shoot and edit my photos of New England 😊 ⠀⠀ • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • ⠀⠀ #hikeyourownlife #findyourpark #exploremore #openmyworld #lonelyplanet #traveldeeper #travel #travelwriter #travelogue #neverstopexploring #visualwanderlust #liveauthentic #letsgosomewhere #welivetoexplore #middlesexfells #boston #bostonusa #visitboston #reservoir #scenesofnewengland #newenglandnature #naturalmassachusetts
I spent today in and out of coves and beaches exploring between Eastham and Provincetown. Highland Light, America's first lighthouse, was moved back from the eroding cliffs in 1996. Oh those fall colors on the marsh! #traveltips Kid friendly museum, only 48" or taller up to the top level. #neverstoplearning #igerscapecod #lighthouse #lighthousesofinstagram #capecodimages #autumn #igersmass #roadtrip_newengland #findyourpark #curbfreetravel @massachusetts_of_insta @massachusetts_lovers

Happy Friday, everyone! 😚💕
Forget about a room with a view. How about a tub with a view? #TheParkBankersHill
DAY 25/365 Years ago, I was on a 10-day backpacking trip and had spent a rainy night in the tent. In the morning, I stood outside, just at the timberline at the head of a long slope and I watched the first sunlight tickle the treetops on top of a cliff in the distance. It seemed painstakingly slow to watch the bright amber hues of sunlight creep quietly towards me, chasing a curtain of darkness being pulled back to reveal the forest in its true, colorful form. It took nearly an hour, but I’ll never forget that warm feeling when the sun finally kissed my face for the first time that morning. It was warm, gentle, and soft; so bright it was almost blinding. It stopped my shivering and started to dry everything out. I knew everything was going to be okay. I think a lot about that morning, especially when I feel frustrated about progress in life, or when I’m looking for answers that don’t seem to come, or when I’m just feeling impatient. The sun doesn’t flip on or off like a light switch; when dawn is approaching, it very quietly casts the slightest hint of color and light into the night sky. In my experience, it’s nearly impossible to point to a precise second in time as “the moment” sunrise begins. It’s more like a delayed realization — we look around and realize, hey, the sun’s already coming up! I think it’s getting lighter! I started running again, several months ago. Progress had been painfully slow. I wanted the dang noonday sun already. But it doesn’t work that way. I huffed, I struggled, I could barely go a mile. Then two. Then three. Then, thanks to some inspiration (competition?) from sharing my progress, the sun finally popped up over the mountain. I ran almost 13.5miles not long ago. It’s the longest single run I’ve ever had. Sunrise. Whether it’s physical progress, emotional growth, knowledge, relationships developing, or whatever kind of light we’re working on, I think it’s important to remember the sun’s path. It can be slow. Sometimes we can see the sunlight but it’s not time for it to reach us yet. Slow can be good. Slow can teach us. Slow helps us appreciate each morning, and being slow just makes us more like the sun.

Back at it this weekend! Conquering mountains & being fabulous. Let’s go, #migo !
I wonder if this is the point where you ooh~ aah~ from the beautiful views, or ooh! aah! because your legs are hurting from hiking this far? . But right now I’m ooh aah-ing because it’s finally Fridayyyyy #flashbackfriday
After every summit, there is always another... A few months ago, when I first came out, @flygirltash talked to me about holding a microphone for someone until she could pass it over. Tonight I am grateful to have given an opportunity to share some of my story and, hopefully, this can help someone. I am super grateful to @ablgbt for providing the safe, welcoming and supportive enviornment to network and meet other like minded professionals and entrepreneurs. I am most happy to have met as many new friends as I have. Thank-you @shanbergseth for coming - you have forever defined what being an ally means and I am fortunate to call you friend. • • • #lgbt #yyc #calgary #business #chamberofcommerce #alberta #banffnationalpark #banff #twojacklake #pixel2 #optoutside #themountainsarecalling #creativecontentbuilders #deadlycaptures #findyourpark #lightworkersunion #lakelife #landscape_lover
Tried to go on another fall hike today and ended up walking into a winter wonderland lol. The golden larches sure do look pretty in the snow though. To be honest hike 23 was a bit miserable for me because I am deathly sick right now and had no business being on any trails this weekend lol. But we had planned this trip out and booked a cabin and already had to skip hiking Saturday due to my health. When I woke up this morning feeling a little better we decided well why not? And I instantly regretted it lol. Especially since the hike was rainy, the epic fall colors & lake view completely socked in by fog, and it was super cold at top because the snow. Kind of a bummer. It was still beautiful though and we saw plenty of golden larches and red & orange fall color. We did catch a quick little glimpse of Lake Ann on the way down. Crazy how fast the weather turns in the mountains. Saw trip reports and pictures from yesterday with completely clear skies & no snow. Luckily we had layers but always be prepared! And if you're sick like how I am please don't even try lol. I think I ruined all progress today of getting better lol! More pics to come soon. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #fall #autumn #winter #snow #larch #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #landscape #washingtontrails #hike #hiking #northcascadesnationalpark #maplepassloop #larchmarch #findyourpark
