Moody morning out at the Dunes!.. . If you’re following me on my wildlife page then you’ve already heard all this, so feel free to go on about your day, lol. But this is gonna wrap it up for me on this account for a little while. I leave for Nepal on Thurs and I’m not 100% sure how the internet will be out there. This will be my 4th time back, but the last time I was there I was only 16 yrs old and the internet and cell phones weren’t really a thing, lol. I’ll be out there for a month and will spend 2 weeks trekking high up in the Himalayas in an attempt to track down the ever elusive Snow Leopard. I have a cousin who lives out there and has been seeing them more frequently for some reason. So, if you never hear from me again, well… I guess that means the big cat found me!😂. . 📸 Sony a7r III ▪️Sony 70-200 f/2.8 GM ________________________ . . . . . #nationalparkgeek #greatsanddunesnationalpark #wildvisuals #earthmood #thewanderco #coloradooutdoors #mountainstones #earthspirit #coloradotography #wildernessnation #mtnfolk #theroguecrew #capturerad #wildandco #westbysouthwest #amongthewild #coloradountamed #colorado_fame #colorfulcolorado #mountainstories #colorado_creative #wondermore #mountain_world #bestmountainartists #earthoutdoors10k #wekeepmoments #escapeandwonder #mountainculture #roamearth #folknature at Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve

Good morning! "The gila monster’s skin is covered with beadlike scales which are known as osteoderms. Their scales are coloured black with a pattern of yellow or pink stripes and spots running along the length of their body. They have a large tail which is used to store fat much like the hump of a camel. When they eat it expands in size. At the end of their short legs are long claws which are used to dig." #kold13 #gilamonster #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #cbs6 #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

The side creeks and hikes in the Grand Canyon are amazing. Walking through millions and billions of years of exposed rock. Cool clear water falls over a small pour over on Carbon Creek. . . . #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #desertlandscape #adventure # #explore #earthfocusexplore #publiclands #publicland #desert #desertsouthwest #desertphotpgraphy #desertmagazone #desertmag #swdesert #marklisk #markliskphotography #adventure #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #grandcanyonstate #arizona #visitarizona

Those faraway mountaintops are still heavy with 15 feet of snow, feeding Lake Tahoe for months to come. Yet while the temperature of the lake is a chattering 42º, the warmth of spring is too irresistible for those who like water at their feet and sun on their shoulders. #dfmi #travelnevada #project_planet #martiscamp #westbysouthwest #californiathroughmylens #tahoenorth #keeptahoeblue #tahome #tahoesnaps #paddleboard #sup #suplife #truckee #laketahoe #laketahoeofficial #tahoequarterly #visitrenotahoe @lahontan_living #alltrails

Leucistic Mule Deer Doe. Never thought I would see one white deer let alone two. Glad a friend help me spot her, the rare is always a treat to see! at Parker, Colorado

Something to Ponder As I get older I find myself asking more questions but the funny thing is I don’t care about the answers. It’s more about the pondering. The mountains have a way of bringing out your best, or worst, depending on your vision and fortitude. You can’t hide from yourself up here and that’s what I love the most-mountains are raw, real and can give you everything. Or, take it away depending on your luck. • • • • • #discovertelluride #colorado #coloradolive #coloradogram #coloradotography #viewcolorado #naturalcolorado #colorfulcolorado #coloradolife #coloradolove #westbysouthwest #rockymountains #natgeo #landscapephotography #coloradolove #nikon #mountainlife #earthfocus #adventure #theoutbound #outtherecolorado #awesome_earthpix #nature_brilliance #landscape_lovers #landscape_captures #nikon #visitcolorado #ouray at Ouray, Colorado

I’m very excited that it’s National Park Week!! 🙌🙌 Sharing my view from the North Rim as the sun set on the gorgeous Grand Canyon. I took this back in 2012 on a family vacation with my husband and parents. 🌄 I am so grateful to John Muir and President Roosevelt for having enough forethought to preserve these beautiful locations!! 🙏🙏 And grateful to my parents for instilling the joy of nature and adventuring in me as a young child and taking me to as many National Parks and Monuments as possible. 💚💙🌎 #nationalparkweek #findyourpark #nationalpark . .

Alright folks, I am nearly done going through all my photos from my 9-week cross-country trip last summer. You've seen all the first picks I made while still on the road, but I find there are a few gems still to be found when I go back through all my files a few months later. A little distance adds perspective to photo files, among other things. Here is one from our first stop at Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site in Colorado. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀There are 13 graves at Bent's, but only one has a marker. This is the resting place of Edward Dorris, age 31, a stagecoach driver. He suffered sunstroke or a heart attack en route to the fort. His resting place is a serene one, along the trail from the parking area to the fort, where the animals often graze. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #bentsoldfort #colorado #bentsoldfortnationalhistoricsite #coloradolive #westbysouthwest #usparksandmonuments #thatadventurelife #womentravelphotographers #mylpguide #AtlasTrails #lowkeycreatives #travelblogger #ROAM #raw_usa #wanderess #travelon #gosomewherenew #wildwest #horse #grave #gravestone #roadtrip #roadtripamerica #nomad #travel #wander #theroadlesstraveled #travelogue #countryside #greyday at Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site

What a gorgeous day! The sun is shinning bright, blue skies and fluffy clouds too. When you take the "lift" up....you definitely have the best view in the house.

Southwest Dreaming . . This is the first composite Milky Way photo that I’ve ever posted here.

Good thing I hardly slept tonight, maybe tonight I’ll be able to go to bed early, so we can be up at 2am to catch a sunrise that’s 3.5 hours away from us. 🌷🌤🌅🌄📷 Sometimes I’m shocked I can actually get up and go out the house to photograph a sunrise and sometimes I’m shocked that it took me 42 years of life to wake up just to see a sunrise. The gift of sight should definitely not be wasted. . . . . . . . . . . . #amazing_shots #bestnatureshot #bns_earth #westbysouthwest #moods_in_frame #earth_shotz #wonderfulwestcoast #nature_perfection #ig_shotz_apr19 #earthfocus #bokeh_shotz #ig_color #ig_skyvibes #natgeohub #natgeowild #co10k #fiftyshades_of_nature_ #natgeolandscape #pocket_world #ig_landscape   #dream_spots #ourplanetdaily #stayandwander #landscapephotography #agameoftones #artofvisuals #pointdume #superbloom2019 #onestrangerock #blueplanet at California

Bands of wild horses head toward water only after the alpha mare decides to drink. Dominant bands get first dibs at the watering hole while others wait their turn. In the wild a horse can survive by filling up with water once every other day. A 1000lb horse consumes approximately 10 gallons a day. Horses love water and find it a great source of amusement. They are natural swimmers and will dog paddle with their noses held high. They like to paw, roll and wallow in shallow areas enjoying the cool water and a respite from insects. at Arizona

What an amazing Easter weekend! For our church family, it was a great reminder that regardless of your situation or circumstance, there is always hope for your future because God is good,even when the world is not. Jesus has forgiven you, regardless of what you’ve done. You are loved, for who you are, not what you do, and everything is possible, because in Jesus, there is always hope. ⠀ ⠀ #ipulledoverforthis#hey_ihadtosnapthat#goandcapturethelight#inspirenaturenow#westbysouthwest#thediscoverer#bns_nature#bns_landscape#nikonnofilter#wow_america_landscape#landscapephotographer#igtexas#texastodo#inspiretexasnow#texascountry#texaslife#centraltexas#texashillcountry#smalltown#sunset_madness_#sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld#viewmysunset#igsunset#unlimitedsunset#super_photosunsets#texassunset#sunsetsnipers#nightscape#heisrisen#godisgoodallthetime at Fredericksburg, Texas

I've known about this spot for awhile and I've wanted get photos here and I've tried to before but I felt like it just wasn't how I wanted it to be, so never posted the photos. I was finally able to get a photo this last weekend that I really liked. Also it's earth day so let's all try to take better care of the earth, I really hate seeing trash when i go on hikes. #all2epic #youcaninportland #gramslayers #urbanaisle #tonesbox #weekly_feature #pnwdiscovered #visualambassadors #cascadiaexplored #grittyside #shotzdelight #houseoftones #eclectic_shotz #rsa_night #visualsoflife #thenwadventure #conqueroregon #outinoregon #gearednomad #createandcapture #nightowlz #loaded_lenses #westbysouthwest #leagueoflenses #pnwisbeautiful #visualsoflife #oregonexplored #kgwweather #creativeoptic #nightshooterz at Oregon

Memorial Day Weekend started off with a hitch. Then drove to the North Rim and saw a big ditch. No paint on the paintbrush, and fossilized shells, Hayden Peak off the edge, and Zion's mountain dells. My brother brought his family to swim in the pool, and we're grateful for soldiers who keep this land cool. Congrats Marshall and Angela! Thanks to those who have given their all to defend this beautiful land.

Serious tilting going on, makes for an interesting, beautiful, and unstable beach cliff.

Gualala Formation! Brought to you by the town of Gualala. Basically the funniest word to say on the trip. These Miocene period sediments lithified into a hard sandstone that lends itself to cliff building and sea cave formation. . . . #gcearthsci #geology #geography #earthscience #hike #goatworthy #california #coast #flowers #howdoyouGO #createyourtrail #optoutside #getoutside #hiking #norcal #stornettapubliclands #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #hikingadventures #leftcoast #wanderlust #adventure16 #hikingculture #allaboutadventures #getlostclub #hikevibes #travelblogger #beachlife #sayyestoadventure #adventureculture at Stornetta Public Lands
