I always enjoy the brief autumn season in Colorado; we sure are spoiled to live in such a beautiful place. If you remember a few posts back, I shared an image of a hiking trail amidst a grove of golden aspen. The image above was taken at a location I love visiting each year in RMNP during the fall, and happens to be a bit further up the trail from that previous photograph. We were very lucky to get some amazing conditions that evening, and definitely did not have a shortage of amazing golden-hour sun rays emanating across the sky. While we didn’t plan our visit during peak fall colors, it was still a beautiful view with plenty to enjoy. . ❗️Want to learn my processing techniques?

I am quickly becoming a tiger beetle nerd. From an article on NationalGeographic.com: "There are 2,600 species of these long-legged predatory insects, and the fastest can sprint at up to 5 miles per hour, covering 120 of its body lengths in a single second. For comparison, Usain Bolt covers just 5 body lengths per second. To match the beetle, he’d have to run at 480 miles per hour." 😲

This guy named Fure built a pretty neat cabin.

Millions of years ago a vast inland sea covered what is now #archesnp leaving in its wake a dense blanket of salt. Slowly, sand & debris collected over this salt bed compressing into a thick stone crust. Beneath the surface, the salt bed liquified under the added weight and thrust the stone above it into wrinkled folds. (01) Acidic rain then pelted the area, together with other forces eventually eroding the weaker layers exposing the sandstone fins (02), arches (03), and piles now knifing upward through the desert floor. . . . #archesnationalpark #arches #archesnp #archesnps #findyourpark #nps100 #weliveelevated #leavenotrace #moab #moabutah #utahisrad

Yet another sunset shot from 10.18.19. If you’ve kept up with my last three sunset pics including this one, they are a great tutorial on what shooting in raw format and simply adjusting white balance can do to a photograph.

One of the best sights in all of Rocky Mountain National Park! The clouds were rolling through the valley below the summit of the mountain!

6am hike to Mesa Arch to watch the sunrise. It was amazing! #ourjourneyoverland #mesaarch #findyourpark #sunrise

The sprawling high desert landscape of @ArchesNPS is pierced by thousands of colossal arcing bridges, cresting fins, and towering pillars carved over a millennia from delicate sandstone. These mammoth structures stand sentinel over a teeming cryptobiotic soil crust that is both enchanting and incredibly fragile. . . . . #archesnationalpark #archesnp #findyourpark #arches #protectourparks #yourparksyourturn #npca #nationalparksconservationassociation #nps101 #enjoyyourworld #leavenotrace #outdooradvocacy #weliveelevated #moabdesert #utahisrad #desertsouthwest #typedesign

"Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountains and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach us more than we can ever learn from books." - John Lubbock . We have learned more about ourselves while exploring than nearly any other time in our lives.

The ancient Puebloans left petroglyphs on the rock that are still visible today.⁠ ⁠At one time, the petroglyphs and inscriptions were "preserved" through various manners, but now they are mainly left alone to the elements.⁠ ⁠[ Photo was taken at El Morro National Monument in May 2019 on the traditional and associated lands of the Pueblos and Zuni. ] ⁠ #elmorro #elmorronps #elmorronm #visitnewmexico #newmexico #nps #findyourpark #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #goparks #usinterior #americasbestidea #nationalparksusa #usnationalparks #nationalparkgeek #usparksandmonuments#roadtrip #enjoythejourney #endlessroads #usaroadtrip #roads #traveltheusa #travelamerica #americanroadtrip #sheexplores #womenwhoexplore #authenticoutdoors #inclusiveoutdoors #innercompassblog⁠

Swipe to see a depiction of my reality right now 👉🏽 Reality is, it isn’t always pretty during the process of achieving goals 🤷🏻‍♀️ This was a short hike at 3 miles but the 90 degree humid weather, rock scrambling, and 20 lbs of ahi poke in my belly got me sweating. But the struggle is ALWAYS worth it. Speaking of goals, I took a bit of a break from IG to focus my time toward my future career. It’s still a work in progress, but just like my ambition during hikes, I’m pushing all my efforts toward my future goals 🤞🏼

#ad @desertadventures got the hook up on a slice of heaven. This 12 mile float through the black canyon national water trail is perfect for these 75/80° days of fall in Nevada.

Lake Powell’s Reflection Canyon has become an Instagram hot spot because of the two islands in the canyon reflecting one another. Having grown up at Lake Powell, this canyon was actually one neither of us had ever visited before. Although we love hiking, we decided that when we visit Reflection Canyon, we wanted to experience it by boat rather than by foot. Here’s Ben cruising around the islands fulfilling that dream! . . . #advntrmates #utah #lakepowell #reflectioncanyon #utahisrad #boating #lakepowelllife #husbands #beautahful #southernutah #glencanyon #glencanyonnationalrecreationarea #findyourpark #backcountry #visitlakepowell #exploreutah

Between blocking the walkway from annoying pedestrians and getting this stupid bird to listen to me this shot was nearly impossible 🤨

Road tripping in Yellowstone National Park during a snowstorm. I had to pull over and get a shot when the sun poked through a hole in the clouds. #yellowstone #findyourpark #yourshotphotographer #wyoming #jacksonhole

In light of my post from yesterday, I just thought I'd share some encouragement for other moms who are having a doggone terrible time with the whole "mom life" thing. You are not alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bringing up children is not easy. Point blank. You are not a bad mom for having a bad day. Go look yourself in the mirror, give yourself a pat on the back, and take a hot shower. No, seriously, go do it. You deserve it. Your baby will be just fine without you for a few minutes. Get in there and close your eyes. Breathe in that zen steam. Let your fingers and toes get pruned. Feel better? I hope so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #glacier #glaciernps #findyourpark #werehikers #hike #explore #adventure #mountains #trail #forest #mountains #outdoors #getout #wild #nature #play #playoutside #wander #wanderlust #liveoutdoors #boymom #wildmom #mom #mother #motherhood #postpartum #depression #womenwhohike #natureaddict #photography

Adverse conditions can often produce some unique photography opportunities. While photographing some moose in Grand Teton National Park, we were hit with a mini snowstorm. The moose didn't seem to mind and the snow actually made for a much more interesting composition. One tip for photographing in the snow - it will be difficult to use auto focus as the camera keeps focusing on the snowflakes, so you will need to switch over to manual focus for consistently sharp images. @bentwoodinn #natgeolodges @GrandTetonNPS #findyourpark

Battle Road Trail Minutemen National Historic Park 5.7 miles 180 ft elevation gain While this wasn't a true hike, it was just a walk through the woods on a old road, I haven't posted anything on this account in a while, so here ya go. The walk was super neat, saw alot of old colonial style homes along the trail. It was also peak time for the foliage so that was a major plus! There are signs all along the route giving you the historic information on what happened at the Battle of Lexington and Concord. It's a long walk, but so worth it! . . . #hike #hiker #hiking #hikelife #trekklife #trekking #outside #outdoors #nature #lifeoutside #optoutside #gotfoutside #mountianwoman #wanderer #wanderlust #exploremore #explore #adventure #adventurer #travel #massachusetts #newengland #historic #history #foliage #fall #autumn #nps #nationalparks #findyourpark

All my favorite places start with a journey down a winding dirt road.

I might be overwhelmed but at least I’m running away from my problems this weekend 🙂

Winter...

...is...

...coming. Until it doesn't (post took a turn)

This guy kept apologizing for “ruining” my shot. Little did he know I was waiting for him to walk by so I could get him in my photos haha. Creepy much 😂 Does anybody else casually photograph strangers or is it just me? 🙈

The fall foliage still isn’t to its peak yet, but it was nice to see some change since I last came here. I’ll just have to keep coming back for more :)

When the full moon 🌝 rains on your Milky Way 🌌 and then Night turns into Day. 😳 Thanks to @mammothphotofest for putting together such a great educational and inspirational event. Plus a special thank you to @cecphotos & @weatherandsky for leading a group to this spot for a night shoot. Hey @weatherandsky where is the group pic? . #sonyalpha a7Riii + FE 16-35mm f/2.8GM #bhphoto #alphacollective #sonyimages #bealpha #mammothlakes #convictlake

Looking for a last min adventure? I got you. ✨ Exactly 4 years ago I hiked the Zion Narrows in Utah and every October I get the itch to go back. Wrote a long overdue blog post on how to best prepare for a quick day hike, out and back. No permits, reservations, or camping gear required. Link is on my main page! ✌🏼 Easy weekend trip. Promise to invite me if you end up going? Perf, it’s a date.🤓

Trump announced today that he’s building a wall in Colorado that you can’t go over and can’t go under. This is not a joke. So... I guess I’m stuck hanging with this little guy for the rest of my life. Tell my family I love them 🤷🏽‍♀️👋🏼😭

Well, we hiked to Lower Falls at Graveyard Fields so it only seemed right that we hike to Upper Falls too! This hike is truly one of a kind. You’ll start by trekking across beautiful wooden walkways through a meadow of low shrubs and creeks. If you’re lucky enough to visit during the Autumn leaf change, you’ll REALLY be in for a treat. Finding the waterfall is as easy as following the signs. Have fun out there! ↡↡ Wear water-friendly boots as the trail is sometimes very bog-like.

Told you there’d be more content coming your way! Headed to my favorite California beach today for the first time in a long time to take pictures for a product I’m super excited about. If you want to read more about my favorite beaches in the country, head over to the blog, there’s an article waiting for you hiding somewhere in there! But anyway, thanks @vuventures for coming out with me and thanks to the people who were leaving when we got there for letting us snag the only open parking spot 🤙 #solotravel #solofemaletraveler #solofemaletravel #vanlife #digitalnomad #womenwhohike #wanderwomen #choosemountains #nature #hiking #veganhiker #travel #vegantravel #explore #leaveitbetter #adventureenthusiasts #takemoreadventures #themountainsarecalling #hikingadventures #knw #travsololife #findyourpark #sofetravel #keepnaturewild #wildkeepers #santamonicamountains #elmatadorbeach

“These are the Temples of God, built without the use of human hands, A man can worship God among these great cathedrals as well as in any man-made church--this is Zion.” Isaac Behunin, the Mormon pioneer credited for giving the canyon the name “Zion”

It’s already winter up in the Tetons. Watched some bison rooting around under the snow for snacks

Went to a hot spring while on the way to @mammothmountain. It was cool but we only stayed like 5 minutes because it was way too hot 😂

What is it about spirals that we find so engrossing? Perhaps it's because there is beauty in repetition. Perhaps it's because round surfaces stand out so much in a man-made world of right angles. Perhaps it's because we recognize the extra effort required to build round objects. The natural world is filled with curves, yet man lines everything up. What will you do to flow between the lines? #escalanteridge #mindfulwandering . . . . #westbysouthwest #cabrillo #sandiego #ig_street #sd #ca #weliveelevated #createyourtrail #adventurelife #adventurer #npfans #wanderfolk #travelmore #explorer #wandering #sandiegoliving #hikesandiego #utah #hiker #lighthouse #historic #findyourpark #sharetheexperience #igsouthwest #spiral #urbexworld #spiralstaircase #architecturelovers

For Pioneer Day, I will finally post pics from when I went to the 150th Anniversary of the Golden Spike and completion of the Transcontinental Railroad at Promontory Summit. It was so cool to see so many people commemorating such an important part of US History that allowed more pioneers to travel west. . . . . #escalanteridge #goldenspike #werutah #utahunique #utahgram #spiritofthewest #utahisrad #weliveelevated #utahillustrated #railroad #adventurelife #gooutside #travelislife #wanderfolk #railways #nps #unionpacific #findyourpark #igutah #history #explorer #utah #adventurers #igsouthwest #travelpix #earthpics #train #steam #locomotive #engineer
