I'd say I'm getting used to this early morning thing, but it's really only the promise of an incredible sunrise that can pry me out of bed pre-dawn. But boy did Mesa Arch @canyonlandsnps deliver!! 🤩 #amazingarches#mesaarch
“We depend on nature not only for our physical survival. We also need nature to show us the way home, the way out of the prison of our own minds. We got lost in doing, thinking, remembering, and anticipating-lost in a maze of complexity and a world of problems. We have forgotten what rocks, plants, and animals still know. We have forgotten how to be- to be still, to be ourselves, to be where life is: here and now.” -Echart Tolle
No matter how many times you visit a place, the right sunset can still take your breath away. . 📍: Traditional lands of the Ute peoples . 📸 : @readheadedwanderlust . . . . . . . #nationalparkgeek#nationalpark
There are a lot of people who don’t appreciate the desert. They call it “stark” and “brown”... @mccharm is NOT one of those people, and neither are we! Do YOU find beauty in the desert? #runsteepgethigh
Oh hey, it's me! This was my first time in Utah and it absolutely will not be my last. Migs and I completely fell in love with the landscape and felt like we needed half a life time to visit all of the things we wanted to see... and let’s be honest, we’d probably need that time to pick our jaws up off the floor! Any suggestions on places where we should go next if we’re in the area? 📸@mckellclayson, edit by me 💖 . . . #radlovestories#wildandcrazylove ...
Can you spot motorbikes on the White Rim Road? If you're standing at Grand View Point, canyon country seems immense. Seeing people out there helps get some perspective on just how big it is. Want to drive the White Rim? You'll need a permit. Details are on our website. . 📷: NPS/Bryce Silver-Bates #whiterimroad#canyonlandsnps
“Don’t bother the earth spirit who lives here. She is working on a story. It is the oldest story in the world and it is delicate, changing. If she sees you watching she will invite you in for coffee, give you warm bread, and you will be obligated to stay and listen. But this is no ordinary story. You will have to endure earthquakes, lightning, the deaths of all those you love, the most blinding beauty. It’s a story so compelling you may never want to leave; this is how she traps you. See that stone finger over there? That ...
Find the arch ;) . . One of my favorites from a trip out to Utah, feels recent but it was probably around two months ago now. I was talking with a photographer I met in Northern Minnesota last week and we ended up talking about creative workflow. If he ever sits on an image for awhile. He replied, “no not really. I go out with a vision and most likely end up staying late editing that night, then posting shortly after.” @bradvaara I always ask people this because I’m curious how people think about the work they do. On ...
Granaries are where ancient people stored their food (rice, beans, etc) it's incredible that our national parks have the ability to keep these historical places alive! I've always learned about these structures in archaeology classes so when I saw the sign off the Aztec Butte trail I knew I was down to see! . . . . . #canyonlands#nationalpark
Canyonlands National Park in Moab, UT, mostly from the Grand View Point. The canyon formations are amazing to look at! Hoping to see the other attractions when I go back to UT! #canyonlandsnationalpark#moab
Traveling across three states to spend a weekend camping out with 150 women I’ve never met seemed... a little bit crazy. 🤗 But I’ve been craving some community with more women who love the outdoors as much as I do—who get up and choose the mountains or the desert or the ocean every day. Who never turn down a chance to get up before dawn and drive an hour for an adventure and a view like this one. Last weekend’s #asdtrendezvous filled my notepad with phone numbers of new friends and new places to explore. Filled my van with ...
canyonlands - (indian) creek - the vertical pictures (damn you and your cropping, IG) . 📍Núu-agha-tūvū-pū (Ute) ancestral lands . to say this place felt magical would be a drastic understatement. the rock is beautiful, the vistas spectacular, and the light is breathtaking. the fact that i had two days off work because of a racist holiday much of this country still celebrates, and spent that time on indigenous land claimed and developed by white folks, was not lost on me. so i won’t really try and describe how i felt during my time there other than to say ...
Ça c’était juste après le lever de soleil sur Mesa Arch. Une fois réchauffés, nous avons sillonné le parc de Canyonlands. Les paysages de l’Ouest américain sont très dépaysants pour nous européens ! . . . . #canyonlands#ouestamericain
America’s vast southwest region is full of surreal landscapes scattered with stunning natural rock formations and rich, kaleidoscopic colours. Venture into the national parks with our guides and learn about the geology and history of these remote and fascinating lands #exsustravel#escapetheobvious - - - -
•A year ago I went to Utah for the first time and was completely in awe of who God is and what He creates. My life is completely different now from how it was a year ago but I’m so grateful to be able to reflect and see God working in each interactions. All of my friends are going to Utah and I miss Utah so I’m sharing my photos of Utah•
Going through the hard drive and deleting gigabytes of photos of last couple of years and will be sharing some I stumble upon that have been misssed and I like today. This one from Canyon Lands NP in Utah, USA - one of the best places in the world to watch stars. #utah#stargazing
Island-In-The-Sky is seen in the distance from the Confluence Trail, looking to the north. The Confluence Trail is a 10 mile out and back hike that features views of the sandstone spires that give the Needles District its name. The confluence of the Green and Colorado Rivers greet you at the half-way point. #hiking#hikingadventures
