Explored Echo Lakes Ca this weekend with some of my best friends.
missed the sunset, but it was still a worthwhile stop!
This view was shrouded in clouds oh the way up to Grinnel Glacier in Glacier National Park, but was nice to see ok the way down after things cleared up. No fewer than three lakes are visible off in the distance (the hike goes past the first two) in this valley between the mountains.
I love the rainbow eucalyptus tree. As the bark sheds, layers of brilliant colors are revealed to create this disco party in the forest. Let’s all be like the rainbow eucalyptus. Business on the out, party on the in. Let’s take our work, not ourselves, seriously. Let’s reveal brightness and fun to the world when we can. 🌈 🌈 🌈

Autumn’s Reflection looks pretty great in Glacier. This is Lake McDonald on a beautiful autumn Saturday.
Crater lake sunrise •
Fun Fact: Ever wonder why sunrise and sunset are so colorful compared to the rest of the day? •
The reason has to do with something called “scattering”. The earths atmosphere is filled with particles, water droplets and molecules, all of which cause light to change direction.
When the sun is low on the horizon during sunrises and sunsets, the sunlight travels through more of the atmosphere. Shorter wavelength colors (blues and greens) get scattered out. This leaves more of the longer wavelength colors like yellow, orange, and red. This is why sunrises often take on such colors. •
When the sun is higher in the sky, the light is passing through less atmospheric particles, allowing the shorter wavelength colors to come through, which is why the sky appears blue!
Rainy Mondays got me dreaming of Sundays ☀️
Joshua Tree National Park is a popular destination in California. Whether you enjoy rock climbing, camping, or stargazing over 2.5 million people visit this national park annually. #photosnotpasswords
friday night’s drive seemed to be something out of the day after tomorrow — legitimately the worst snowstorm I have ever driven through... a casual reminder that winter is on the doorstep and here to sell you way more magazines than you can even read in a lifetime (anyone else have to do this in middle school?). Regardless, we made it over the pass, and the rest of the weekend felt like something straight out of a dream. I never used to care much for fall, as it was just the end of summer and the start of cold, but I’ve happily changed my mind this year. The colors in the Flathead have been ridiculous — I’m stoked to be spending another weekend up there with @explorewhitefish
Forgive us! We’ve been MIA for a few days, partying it up in cold ass Minnesnowta for @beawilde
‘s brother’s wedding! We saw family and friends, got dolled up and celebrated, enjoyed many a drink and a solid game of golf in 35 degree weather! 🏌🏻♀️🏌️♂️ The weekend was filled with fun including this insane view outside of our suite. The Midwest is chilly and chalk full of great people. 🍁
Relax - Breathe - Restore ... Avalanche Gorge is a great place to do all of these things!
This bronze sculpture of #GeorgeWashington
was created by John Quincy Adams Ward in 1883, and is located on the front steps of Federal Hall National Memorial, on #WallStreet
. The statue was created to commemorate Washington's inauguration as the first president of the United States in 1789, at the very site where the statue stands. .
At the time, Federal Hall served as the capitol building of the United States, stood on the site, and Washington took the oath of office on the balcony of that building, approximately where the statue now stands. .
The original building was demolished in 1812 but the current structure was was built in 1842 to be the U.S. Custom House for the Port of New York. Later it served as a sub-Treasury building and today it is operated by the #NationalParkService
as a national memorial and designated the #FederalHallNationalMemorial
to commemorate the historic events that occurred at the site. Those historic events include: the colonial Stamp Act Congress met to draft its message to King George III claiming entitlement to the same rights as the residents of Britain and protesting "taxation without representation," meeting place for the Congress of the Confederation held under the Articles of Confederation after the American Revolution, the first Capitol of the newly created United States in 1789, the 1st United States Congress, and the swearing in of George Washington as the first President.

Stumbled upon this beautiful coyote while driving through Yellowstone last summer
Fun Fact: Coyotes are one of the few monogamous animals, mating with a single partner for life. Also, both male and female coyotes share in the responsibilities of caring for their newborn pups together.
Autumn on Lake McDonald, October 5, 2018. I am not sure if there is any better view on the west side of Glacier.
It was sunny and bright on this mid-September day in Glacier. This is Cracker Peak and Mount Siyeh from the summit of Mount Gould.
