Adventuring with babies is, honestly, SO MUCH WORK. And I lπŸ’›ve being lazy. But for some reason I keep coming back for more. I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I’ve realized that when I take my kids to do something special I am also most present as a mom. Adventures=connection=happiness. I think the math works out something like that.
I posted more photos of this gorgeous hike in Olympic National Park and more words about why I love traveling with kids on my blog. Also I talk about car ferries. πŸš— β›΄οΈπŸ’›You know where to find the link. (Hint: my profile). β€’

44.9 miles in 36 hours. Rim to rim to rim complete! If you look closely, you can see my shiner from falling face first into a rock wall. #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #nationalparkservice #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #arizona #rimtorimtorim #womenwhohike

When the sky delivers a show of colors like this you get off the road at the nearest turn out - hopefully (unlike me) you are paying a little attention for the giant pothole in the turnout and steer clear of it before your poor Subaru is slamming into a rather large hole.
Despite this the subi agreed it was worth the sudden stop to capture this quickly fading scene in a small break between trees. No matter how many sunsets or sunrises I capture, Yosemite always sends something fresh my way that keeps me enthralled in the beauty of this natural world.
Moments later the dark black of evening claimed the sky leaving only a slight tease of royal blue and purples speckled with star light and a crescent moon. #yosemite .

That sky was putting on a show on the Kacamangus trail in New Hampshire. πŸ’™ We are back in Massachusetts for a few days and spending time in Boston tomorrow! So glad we caught the fall foliage just in time. πŸ‚

Golden hour overlooking the iconic Appalachian Trail in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia.

2 days camping in Shenandoah soaking up the beautiful fall colours & hiking to secluded waterfalls = East Coast bliss! πŸ’›πŸ‚πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

The first time I visited Yellowstone, two friends and I drove for 15 hours straight from California. Upon our arrival to the park and while checking in for a campsite, the park ranger went over park regulations with us and then very casually said: "Don't be alarmed but a large grizzly bear had just walked through the campground and there's an elk carcass nearby down by the river."
Let's just say we did not have a good night's sleep that night.

Snowy Egret at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve. St. Petersburg is one of my favorite places for birding. But I can't take too much credit for this beautiful photo. I didn't need to summit a mountain or walk past gators. The lighting was perfect and there were no photographers blocking my view. I'm not complaining. As Weston Burt sang, "guess you get lucky sometimes" 😁

It’s amazing what you can see when there’s no light pollution

Can’t wait to chase some colors this weekend πŸ‚

They will see us waving from such great heights,
"Come down now," they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
"Come down now," but we'll stay...

Thinking about these mountains always trips me out, like, I'm at this lake, which is on top of a mountain at 9,000 ft, but it's only at the base of these other mountains, which are even higher! (How does geology work???) πŸ€”

Mono lake never disappoints. I can't explain the color variation here. No special edit other than boosting vibrance. Took this last weekend on a fall color hunt. I guess the lake wanted to join in. This is a 1/10 sec exposure at F4 ISO 1000. Taken with a #canon6d and 24-105 lens. #westcoast_exposures #monolake #mammothlakes #visitmammoth #usinterior #nationalparkgeek #canonusa #canonbringit #canonfanphoto #rsa_light #weownthenight_ca #visitcalifornia

Dreaming of Alaska, and its rugged, wild, and untamable beauty I have yet to find anywhere else.
