Goblin Valley State Park
We actually rescued a kid who was stuck in one of the rock formations at this park. I had climbed up and got him down and luckily we followed him all the way back to the parking lot only to find out that his family and the group he was with had left him! With minimal cell service and no help from DNR 😑(still salty about that) we were eventually able to get into contact with his mom and get him back with his family and the group he was with about 45 minutes later. Had we not been able to, there is a good chance @chaser_dave
and I might be dads right now to a stray Utah boy, cuz we definitely weren’t going to just leave him! •

Wish our air quality was this good // thank you firefighters for all your hard work to keep us safe
still messing around with my future Badlands design so we’ll see how this one ends up
The towering giants of Zion look beautiful in that evening light.
The true #goldenhour
of the day. I’m thrilled beyond belief that the sun is setting before 8pm now. The reason why? Fall. I’m so ready for flannel, crisp cool mornings, and hot beverages!
Swipe for full size image! Sunset seen from the Golden Lakes campground on The Wonderland Trail.
Arches was so surreal and incredible ❤️ didn’t realize how much my heart missed the desert until this weekend, so while I’ll be sad to leave Colorado, I can’t wait to come back to Flag!! #findyourpark
be a tree ~ be still, stay grounded, soak up the sun, drink lots of water, and enjoy the view🌲
🔥🔥127 degrees during the day and a chilly 102 at night. 🔥🔥 #hotaf
I’ve got them, I’ve got them. The “Nor Cal Blues.” There’s too much dirt in my blown out shoes
It’s striking we’re hiking 20+ miles a day
So many more miles since starting the 10th of May
Walking is at times a bore
My feet are swollen, my knees are sore
Mountain House gives me so much gas
I dearly long for the sunset at Muir Pass
There’s tears of joy, there’s tears of pain
afternoon coffee shots fuel my brain
I ran two miles with 30 pounds on my back
And now walking 1/4 gives me a heart attack
Clif bars can go suck a dick
It’s those sweet blackberries I’d rather pick
Sawyer squeeze you’ve nearly slowed to a dribble
Keep your food in your pack lest the critters nibble (I miss you Marmots)
But I blew up my mattress and went for a swim
To slow down and be present of the place I’m in
We cowboy camp and snuggle under the stars
Drank fancy wine from my trusty/crusty Talenti jar
Barter nightly chores for snickers and sour patch
“I’ll put up the tent if you scratch my back”
Miles and miles to the Oregon border
California’s my home, and I think we’ve grown closer
To continue or not? Where’s this ol heart at
But if I quit now, I’ll want it all back...
Pro tip: play with your hair as you walk away aimlessly from the camera😂
I’m lucky to have found myself a man as gorgeous as all the places I drag him to 🔥.
Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. ✨
The Canadian Rockies are a magical place. And a perfect way to celebrate @gellibelly
Maligne Lake is the largest natural lake in the Canadian Rockies at 14 mi long and just under 1 mi wide. There are 3 glaciers visible from the lake and the lake is surrounded on 3 sides by the same mountain range which is very unique.
This location was made famous as the first “Kodak moment.” When consumer color film was first introduced, Spirit Island was proudly displayed in their first ad.
Interestingly, the “island” is actually only an island during the first part of spring when water levels are at their highest. It’s also a sacred place for the natives and access to the island is restricted.

The answer to the question that frequents, why is this place called #yellowstone
! The yellow tinged rocks cut right across by the #yellowstoneriver
like knife through butter creating one of the most intriguing landscapes. The sight here is from the #artistpoint
on the #southrim
, christened after the way this location has inspired many a artists to capture this view in unique ways! For me, it was a golden opportunity to #chasethesun
and create a glorious #sunstar
setting on the magnificent #yellowstonenationalpark
. The falls in the distance is the mighty #lowerfallsyellowstone
! A truly sight to behold only spoilt by its easy access which leads to ton of people in this area!
