Common Daisy "Uncommon Planet..." Montana is alive with wildflowers this summer.... This common Daisy is actually made up of 250 mini flowers at it's center...each of these tiny conglomerates results in a potential seed. Shot in the Montana Rocky Mountains near Glacier Park....Live in this moment and discover an exsistance beyond fear. Make this life about discovery... and find freedom. #daisy #glaciernationalpark #photoart #whiteflowers #wildflowers #montana #visitmontana #mooji #meditation #planetearth #discovery #travelmontana #listentoyoursoul #flowers #colors #truecolors #glacierpark #freedom #uncommon #truth #gratitude at Montana

Life is a series of ripple effects 👉🏼... some actions cause mild distortions, others can be quite disruptive. They can be caused by external forces as well as have positive or negative impacts. But no matter the size or frequency of the disturbance, calming the mind, reflecting on the outcome and finding #gratitude in the moment is essential to #choosinghappiness and #mindfulliving. 😊🧘🏻‍♀️ . . . . . When we first drove by this lake, the wind 🌬 was blowing so hard, the lake was in disarray. As we were returning from our 3hr tour of the #goingtothesunroad in a cramped vehicle, the lake was completely still, so we had to stop again. My gf made a beeline to the shore to take a #reflectiongram. While I was standing above, i heard splashing in the water. She was out of sight, so I assumed (vocally) that she was splashing around tryna get the best pic for the gram... but I was wrong. A damn 🦆 was the culprit. #youknowwhattheysayaboutassuming 🤦🏻‍♀️ #doitforthegram #doingitforthegram #reflection_shots #reflectionshot #waterreflections #reflectionpic #lakereflection #reflection_shotz #reflectionstories #reflectionlake #healthyliving #gratitudequotes #peacelovevibes #peacelovehappiness #montanamoment #montanalife #montanagram #visitmontana #glaciernationalpark #glaciernp #glaciernps #glaciermt #westglacier at Lake Mcdonald, Montana

In the last 48 hours we experienced a flat tire, soaked clothes, puddles in our hiking boots, several blisters, and sunburnt skin. We hiked 35 miles and 3,400 ft of elevation gain to and from our backcountry site with some of the most amazing views I’ve ever seen. The most unexpected events happen in Glacier, but it’s all part of the adventure! at Upper Kintla Lake

Only small Brookies on my first solo day in Montana. It rained the majority of the day and I’m crossing my fingers that this will be the end of the afternoon thunderstorms. at Bozeman, Montana

Found this Short-Eared Owl perched on a wooden fencepost next to a field east of Molt, MT last night. It was approaching dark, shortly before a large thunderstorm was rolling in. I had him to myself for a few short minutes before he flew off to hunt in the field across the dirt road, hovering in one spot looking and listening, then flying to the next spot. . . . . . #owl #shortearedowl #hoot #birdphotography #molt #eveningdrives #igscwildlife #animales #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #birdsofinstagram #animalsmood #birdwatching #bestbirdshots #birdstagram #animalsaddict #birding #instabirds #your_best_birds #wildlife_seekers #montana #bigskycountry #billings #montanagram #visitmontana #nikonphotography #nikontop #nikon_photography_ #nikon_photography #focalmarked at Molt, Montana

Bad fishing often comes with good conversations. Just a couple of guys on an after-work adventure discussing hatches, snowboarding, work, and the excitement of new parenthood. I don't remember many fish, but many good laughs were had. #fishtales at Bozeman, Montana

Grinnell Lake, I’m still dreaming about you 💙 - A . . Saturday we hiked 8 miles to experience this breathtaking glacier-fed alpine lake. The hike itself was incredibly scenic and we took so many pictures it’s hard to choose which ones to share! (Don’t worry there will be more) As soon as we arrived to the lake (after 4.5 miles of hiking) an unexpected storm blew in and we had to take cover and wait it out in the forest - making for quite an experience! I’ll be adding video clips to our story here on IG since we had no service the 3 days while in Glacier. Stay tuned! . . #grinnelllake #glaciernationalpark #grinnelllaketrail #alpinelakes #dreamydestinations #glaciernps #visitmontana #wanderlove #mountainlovers #getyourhikeon #exploremore #ourairstreamadventure #girlswhohike #bucketlisttravel #takeahike #nationalparks #lastbestplace #montanalove at Grinnell Lake

I’ve been fortunate to spend the better part of this past month traveling the Rocky Mountains, observing their evolution along a northerly sojourn, and Glacier National Park stood out as the unrivaled jewel of the range. It’s here that the forces of uplift and erosion—tectonics, wind, water, ice—are most vividly and dramatically on display. It’s here that icons of the wilderness—grizzly, wolf, moose—dominate both the landscape and the imagination. It’s a place on the edge, both physically from its perch on the country’s northern border, and figuratively as its preservation is predicated on its existence as an untamed and inhospitable space. It asserts itself with the water and wind it hurls in your face and with its impassable craggy spine. And so when the sun does break through, when you finally reach that pass or peak, when you look on as one of earth’s great beasts treads the hillsides and valleys and lakeshores, its essence is what reaches in and grabs hold of something inside you, gives you butterflies, and keeps you dreaming of coming back again and again. #montanamoment @visitmontana #sponsored . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #glaciermt #glaciernps #usinterior #wishyouwerenorthwest #pnwphotographer #northwestisbest #ourplanetdaily #pnwonderland #bestmountainartists #cascadiaexplored #visitmontana #rockymountainhigh #nationalparks #westglacier #sunrise #roamtheplanet #theoutbound #wildernessculture #goingtothesun #glaciernationalpark #glaciernationalparkmontana #sunrise #bestmountainartists #cascadiaexplored #loganpass at Glacier National Park

I’m loving this #hikelikeagirl movement! - I hike a lot! Most of my days off are spent hiking and during the summer I usually am backpacking every week or so! My day hiking pack is like a purse to me; I may not use all the gear I bring but I wouldn’t want to be without if the need arises!! - I also hike solo most of the time! So I carry extra things like 2 cans of bear spray or a tripod for taking pictures when no one else is around.... - I always get the same reaction from my patients when I talk about hiking by myself because I’m a girl. “That isn’t safe” or “Aren’t you scared?” Are some things said on repeat. Well of course I get scared sometimes but I also love the outdoors! And I’m always aware of my surroundings in the wild. I hike at my own pace and take it easy when the trail gets rough. I hike like a girl and I’m proud of it! 👍 - Thanks @tandemtrekking for bringing awareness to our girly hiking selves!! :) at Blodgett Canyon

Did you know? Cottonwood trees are dioecious, which means they produce male and female flowers on separate plants. The catkin (flower) you see here belongs to a female tree. Cottonwoods can release up to 40 million seeds a season, which is why we sometimes see lawns covered in fluffy white stuff - and even though this is Montana, this time we’re not talking about ❄️ in June! Fun fact: many people blame their allergies 🤧 on the white cottonwood seeds that female trees produce, but those seeds actually aren’t allergenic! Pollen produced by male trees is typically the culprit...🌳💁‍♀️🌳 #missouribreaks #montana #cottonwoods #treefacts #visitmontana #nationalmonument

Bagging peaks is an interesting thing. It’s sometimes fun, sometimes heinous. It’s sometimes rewarding, sometimes disappointing. But it’s the views like this and the moments spent in the hills with friends that are what make me feel alive! at Two Medicine

How many of you have caught a glimpse of one of these adorable kids while exploring our beautiful state? Mountain Goats are a symbol of NW Montana and they can often be spotted in Glacier National Park. Their agility and skill, even at a young age, is truly something to behold. We love this shot captured in GNP from @sebastiansans at Glacier National Park

We appreciate the story behind the photo, and few do it better than @nickrlake. Take a journey with him through this photo as he describes he demanding two days of biking, exploring and photographing Glacier National Park last month.

It's my birthday! 🎉 | For some reason, I was an idiot and took off for my trip only to come back to work ON my birthday. 😂. 28 was a wild year. Saw my niece go from baby to toddler, moved to a house, saw friends hit new exciting milestones, made new bffs, work flew off the walls (in a good way), started the beginning of a blog, opened a print shop, visited over 20 states, 7 UNESCO sites, over 10 National Park sites, & planned for the future. 29 & 30 have some HUGE things in store, probably the biggest plans and life changes I've ever experienced, but I'm really excited. I have a lot I want to work on both personally and professionally, but one thing is for sure - family, friends, and the wilderness will be the center of my life. 💕. | 📍 Lake Josephine, Glacier National Park, Montana, USA 🌲 ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ 🌲 #sheisnotlost #optoutside #glaciernationalpark #lakejosephine #montanamoment #dametraveler #mountaingirls #wildernessculture #likeamountaingirl #sheisthewild #femmetravel #montana #usaroadtrip #womenwhohike #girlsthatwander #adventurenthusiasts #womenwhoexplore #capturemontana #womentravel #visitmontana #usatravel #hikerbabes #hiking #passionpassport #parttimetraveler #femaletravelbloggers #hikersofinstagram #hikelife #hikelikeagirl @travel.to.usa at Glacier National Park

Who would have guessed it, but I fell in love with hiking while in Montana! I think it was this hike to Logan Pass that did it. This world is absolutely stunning and everyone needs a break sometimes just to soak it all in. This summer has taught me that I need to step back and be grateful for what I have. I need to find what makes me happy and cling to it. I’ll never forget this summer! 🥾 . . . . . #familytravel #summervacation #hiking #loganspass #montana #visitmontana #hikingwithkids #grateful #mountains #glaciernationalpark #vacationmode #nationalparks #tripofalifetime #amitravels #roadtrip at Glacier National Park

“The cowboys had lived for months under the great bowl of the sky, and yet the Montana skies seemed deeper than the skies of Texas or Nebraska. Their depth and blueness robbed even the sun of its harsh forceit seemed smaller, in the vastness, and the whole sky no longer turned white at noon as it had in the lower plains. Always, somewhere to the north, there was a swath of blueness, with white cloads floating in it like petals in a pond.” ~Larry McMurtry . . I’m truly lucky to live where I do. #montanamoment #visitmontana at Park Lake

Day 14 and 15: Day 14 was a Bozeman day/night. Took care of some 4R stuff, had a wayyyyyy too long lunch at MAP Brewing. Hopefully I didnt torture the staff too much and they were able to enjoy the @rusticales beer I left for them. Met some locals and another traveler and said I had to go up to Hyalite Rez to camp. But...with no camp spots and a huge Thunderstorm I went back down into Bozeman, did some laundry, found cheap hotel then hit Montana Aleworks. Closed the place down and @lelanddoliente was cool enough to invite me out. I think he regretted that the next day! Haha. Woke up on Day 15 and headed to breakfast and out of town to just outside Glacier NP. Not much to see between those too places. Set up camp spot with an amazing sunset. Crashed early for the early Day 16. #visitmontana #bozemanwasfun #coollocals #greatbeerscene #mapbrewing #letsgoplaces #livefreestaywild #excitedforday16 #helenaismeh #irishcarbombs #tequila #goodtimes at Bozeman, Montana
