I’m no early riser...I love an afternoon hike in the bright sun that can be timed so that the end of the trail meets you with a view like this. 🌅

Wishing I was poolside instead of in this dreary weather. #rainraingoaway @pechangacasino

This is a repost of my first time backpacking adventure a few years ago. Although it was a challenge for me I remember feeling so proud of myself that I accomplished it. I hope to be able to do this again. I just need to be physically and mentally prepared 😬#goals _ #repost #backpacking #ventanawilderness #adventures #optoutside #hiking #nature #earth_escape #awakethesoul #beautifuldestinations #bigsur #montereybay #seemonterey #california #visitbigsur #rawcalifornia #unlimitedcalifornia #naturalcalifornia #takemoreadventures

↬ As a final outing before @scarlster left for vet school we visited some Highland Cows in Oak Glen with some of my favorite people @lumberjack_nick and @tinasaba. We spent the day wine tasting and eating freshly made cinnamon donuts and enjoying the Sequoias. I’m grateful for the amazing people in my life. ↟ ↟ ↟ #livesinmotion #highlandcow #amongthewild #california #whyihike #campvibes #rawcalifornia #california4fun #amongthewild #theguided #wanderlust #wildcalifornia #rei1440project #getoutstayout #bpmag #wildernessculture #modernoutdoorsman #backyardadventures #adventuretilwedie #adventureisoutthere #betheadventure #explore #exploremore #neverstopexploring #meetthemoment #campingcollective #lightandwander #campcoop #naturalcalifornia #californiacapturesg

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? They both surrender. Hey friends, do you have Spotify or Apple Music? You can find @forestrobots in both of these platforms. If you enjoy these posts, give the music a try too and subscribe. Lots of more music coming to both platforms in 2019. Exciting stuff to soothe your ears and spark your imagination.

The iconic Bay Theatre is looking good. I can’t wait until it opens again.

I feel like the trail to Murietta Falls should come with a warning sign. Warning: hiking in the Ohlone Regional Wilderness will cause massive stoke and excitement to hike the 28-mile Ohlone Regional Wilderness Trail. I think I may just have to put this one on my spring wish list.

Looking out from the north jetty area in Samoa.

Deadly Cracks ——— Mud cracks in the desert stretching out as far as the eye can see. Some of these cracks were an inch wide and 4” deep! It was much harder to find satisfying compositions then I thought it would be. In this image I really like how this large rounded crack pulls you into the frame. Swipe for black and white and some behind the scenes footage 📸. ——— #walkwithlocals #deathvalley #visitcalifornia #californialove #naturalcalifornia #westcoast #usaprimeshot #beautifuldestinations #depthobsessed #visualambassadors #shotzdelight #gramslayers #tonekillers #all2epic #moodygrams #sonyalpha #fatalframes10k #bestvacations #tlpicks #cntraveler #earthpix #socality #awesome_earth #visualsoflife #rsa_landscape #sonyimages #findyourpark #mudcracks

Throwback to 2016. Today, when I look at this photo, I think to myself, I could have improved this shot in so many ways. 😅 Check out my new blog “Spilling The Tea On MKEshoots” to get insider scoop of my Journey and to see exclusive captures of how my art has evolved. Link in Bio

As a photographer I have a strong FOMO of a colorful sunrise/sunset. When I open the garage door in the morning and I see the floor glow pink from the reflection of the color in the sky I know I’ve missed out. Fortunately (aided by the time change from SC -> CA) I was up well before sunrise my first morning in Monterey to not miss this glowing seascape reflecting the vivid color in the clouds. . . . . . 16mm, 0.88 sec at f/16, ISO 100, Sony A7Rii #godscreation #predawn #sunrisereflections #seascape #ic_adventures #ic_landscapes #bns_earth #bns_landscape #sunrise_and_sunsets #sunrise_shotz #travelphotography #visitcalifornia #naturalcalifornia #wildcalifornia #calilove #natgeoadventure #adventureenthusiasts #livebravely

Figuring out where we belong.

#alexlovestheworld USA ROADTRIP: HIGHWAY 1 Freunde, es geht weiter zu unserer letzten Station auf unserem USA Roadtrip. Um nach so viel Action auch ein wenig zu entspannen, haben wir die letzten drei Tage für Santa Barbara eingeplant. Von San Francisco aus ist das eine wirklich ordentliche Strecke. Viele machen noch einen Zwischenstopp in Monterey. Wir haben lediglich einen kurzen Halt in Carmel by the Sea gemacht und sind am Strand spazieren gewesen. Allerdings hat das Wetter nicht mitgespielt. Es war unglaublich neblig und man hat kaum was gesehen. Das war auch leider während unserer Fahrt am legendären #highway1 entlang der Fall. Streckenweise mussten wir Schritttempo fahren, weil wir einfach nichts gesehen haben. Das ist natürlich unglaublich schade, den auf diesen Abschnitt habe ich mich wirklich gefreut. Die Fahrbahn führt eng an der Küste entlang und bei guten Sichtverhältnissen ist das ein majestätischer Anblick. Der Wettergott war dann aber irgendwann doch gnädig und hat für uns die Nebeldecke aufgerissen und sogar die Sonne scheinen lassen. So hatten wir zum Teil doch die Möglichkeit den Blick auf den Pazifik zu genießen. Ein besonderes Highlight auf der Strecke ist der idyllische Strand im Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. Diese Bucht hat sich ihre Schönheit erhalten, weil sie nicht für Menschen zugänglich ist. Man kann den Blick auf die #mcwayfalls aber wunderbar aus der Ferne genießen. Man sollte sich einen kurzen Halt an dieser Stelle nicht entgehen lassen! / / / / / / #alexliebtdiewelt #wildcalifornia #naturalcalifornia #caliinviteyou #calilove #caliexplored #outdoortones #theweekoninstagram #iamtb #iamatraveler #diewocheaufinstagram #thegreatoutdoors #adventurenthusiasts #bigsur #theoutbound #visittheusa #outdoorsusa #roadtripusa #lifestylegameon #landscapelover #landscapehunter #landscapephotography #landscapephoto #unchartedvisuals #juliapfeifferburnsstatepark #tlpicks #milliondollarvisuals @VisitTheUSA @visitcalifonia @cntraveler @travelandleisure @seemonterey

Those of you who know me know that I am a big animal lover. Those of you who really know me know that I've been inspired and in love with the beautiful soul that is @allaboutarbuckle for almost a year. A couple of days ago Arbuckle's moms knew he would be leaving us. When I found out I went for a walk on the beach with my own rescue doggie, Tinker. It started to rain and I felt so sad, but then I looked up and saw this. I couldn't help but think it was a sign that Arbuckle would be just fine crossing his rainbow bridge. If you want to fall in love with this sweet soul and his amazing rescuers, check out his IG feed and consider donating to @apurposefulrescue in his honor. His legacy will live on with every rescued animal. . . . #ourbuckle #arbucklesarmy #crossingtherainbowbridge . . . #vscocam #california #kalifornien #visitventura #downtownventura #visitcalifornia #naturalcalifornia #naturegram #gooutside #beach #sea #ocean #rainbow #regenbogen

Just passing thru #longbeachcalifornia before the rain.

All the conditions seem to be in place for an excellent desert bloom this year. When is the bloom ? Peak season is usually the first half of March . We’ve already spotted many ocotillos with their red blooms, and anxiously await the changes in the coming weeks . #cactus #cactusflower #cactusbloom #desert #anzaborregodesert #borregosprings #optoutside #vacationrental #hiking #anzaborregodesertstatepark #airbnb #2017superbloom #ocotillo #california #naturalcalifornia

Вы только подумайте: долгие годы жизни за нас всё решают родители. Родился ты а семье шопоголиков - обречён подпирать примерочные, родился в семье тв-задротов - будешь тренировать память рекламой и распевать песни про Вилларибо и Виллабаджо. А наши дети обречены хайкать по бездорожью до тех пор, пока не получат легальное право оставаться дома одни (сколько это лет, 16? 😀). Недавно сын прошагал первые в жизни 5км и даже почти не ныл: "Болят ноги? Болят - значит растут, шагай дальше" 👣 Но сам факт того, как многое люди вынуждены впитывать от родителей наводит на мысли 🤔 Вот вы, конкретно вы, уверены, что стали собой, а не проекцией воспитания своих родителей?.. #milagritaandnature #milagritaandkids #ilovenature #naturalwonders #naturalcalifornia #california #hiking #ilovehiking #беларусыўкаліфорніі #лес #прыгажосць #хайкаем #лес #прогулкивлесу #фотоприроды #awco #viajaconmigo #travelwithkids #travelwithme #Калифорния #белорусывсша

The rain stopped for about an hour during today’s sunset, so I was able to get out to the beach to see what there was to see. Of course I went with a long exposure, LOL.

Believe it or not, this was the last hike I went on, way back in October. I had a fear of not getting out after the PCT, and that fear was realized. • We are all guilty of making excuses to not get outside more, to not do things we really love. I’m jealous of the people who make it a priority in “regular life”. • That’s why I’m making a commitment this year to do an outdoors-related adventure once every month. Anything from a long day hike to a month-long backpacking trip will “count”. Ideally, I’d be able to get out on a hike every week, but I just know that isn’t practical in my life right now. • Anybody else struggle to get yourself outside, even though you love it so much? . . . . . . #visitcalifornia #rawcalifornia #wildcalifornia #caliexplored #naturalcalifornia #california4fun #californiathroughmylens #thenorcalcollective #lifeofadventure #choosemountains #optoutside #getoutstayout #everydaywild #ourwild #in2nature #wildernessculture #adventureculture #rei1440project #ourplanetdaily #todsl #wildernessgoals #hikingtrails #trailchat #hikingculture #thisismyroute #monocounty #easternsierra #takemebackpacking #sheexplores #wwhmember
