I found fall! 🍂🍁 I’ve spent the last few days in the Eastern Sierra and Yosemite running on little sleep, car camping and chasing fall colors. The colors aren’t to their peak yet, but it’s definitely turning!

Alien. Maybe because of the heat, or the striated clouds, or the strange rocks, but when I saw this unique rock formation in Death Valley I swore I was looking at an Alien on the surface of Mercury. I think the heat was making me hallucinate.

Our kids were excited to see this bull Elk in Yellowstone National Park, and he did the bugle sound which was super cool to hear for the first time. We came across him right by the road near Yellowstone Lake. And love those antlers!

#throwbackthursday 💫 Throwback to two years ago when we went to Arches. Pre-RV we tried to do some travel with the kids. But once we bought an RV it dramatically changed our ability to travel. Campsites are cheaper than hotels, and making our meals is cheaper than restaurants. And most of the places we want to visit are easier to reach by driving rather than flying. It really has given a freedom we didn’t realize it would. 🚍 🦅

Total miles: 7977 Total states: 20 Total days: 46 National Parks: 4 Times I pushed it and ran out of gas: 3 Canadian border crossings: 3 Oil changes: 3 Canadian provinces: 2 Van Rally: 1 Mechanic visits to weld a muffler back on: 1 Pulled over for speeding: 0 This trip was all about getting to Maine to check off #49 and showing my parents around. From there, I was lucky enough to add in trips to see friends and family in the northern states and got to a few new National Parks. Adding in a Van Rally at the end of the trip was pretty awesome, it’s hard to describe 400+ vans getting together in a giant field at one time. I was as lucky as this 7 leaf clover in my camp! #vanagon #vanagonlife #ashevillevanlife

My adventure pals. Whitney and Bino, always by my side, and always stealing my food. A chilly panorama of the the reality of getting to a spot on time. Additionally, a massive panorama that I have no idea what to do with because it is massive. I was going to make it a swipey boy, but I haven’t decided yet. Enjoy! Who are your adventure pals?

Some while ago a good friend said one of her favorite things to do is to give people really unique and meaningful compliments, and that she really enjoys finding things about people that they value and telling them that “hey, that thing you are is pretty awesome.” And that someone being able to do that for her is something she really values in a friendship. 🏔 At the time I dismissed it because I was like “yeah I’m secure enough not to rely on other people’s compliments for validation lolz.” But I’m beginning to realize that the deeper meaning of those kinds of compliments comes from knowing that someone can see beyond behaviors on the surface (of which mountaineering is one lol) to see and appreciate and love you for who you truly are. And, due to my total lack of awareness of who I am at a core level, I didn’t really see the value in searching for the motivation behind the actions I take, let alone figuring out and valuing that in others. 🏔 That’s something I’ve been thinking about a LOT recently. When you strip away everything on the surface, what remains? Sure, outdoor sports are fun and awesome and like 99% of the reason I have friends is because they’re awesome outdoors partners. It can be a great gateway to creating deeper relationships, but that’s not necessarily the case. Doing tons of cool and awesome things doesn’t necessarily mean that my outer behaviors are aligned with my inner self and values, especially when I’m still trying to figure out what drives me at a core level. Not being aware of that potential misalignment can cause a lot of internal struggle and feelings that feel like they have an opaque and indeterminate cause. 🏔 All this is to say that self discovery is hard and painful and a lot of work and I have like none of the answers but I hope that at least asking these questions is helping me gain some much needed self awareness. And I really appreciate the people in my life who have stuck around all this time - you probably know me better than I know myself, and thanks for being there all these years whenever I needed a generous listening ear (or a slap in the face).

As a person who grew in in Southern California spending time on the beaches in Olympic National Park was refreshing. The wildlife the tide pools and even the smell where are familiar faces that I haven’t seen in years and are all things I didn’t realized I missed.

Spruce Tree House, the third largest cliff dwelling (Cliff Palace and Long House are larger), was constructed between A.D. 1211 and 1278 by the ancestors of the Pueblo peoples of the Southwest. The dwelling contains about 130 rooms and 8 kivas (kee-vahs), or ceremonial chambers, built into a natural alcove measuring 216 feet (66 meters) at greatest width and 89 feet (27 meters) at its greatest depth. It is thought to have been home for about 60 to 80 people. The cliff dwelling was first discovered in 1888, when two local ranchers chanced upon it while searching for stray cattle. A large tree, which they identified as a Douglas Spruce (later called Douglas Fir), was found growing from the front of the dwelling to the mesa top. It is said that the men first entered the dwelling by climbing down this tree, which was later cut down by another early explorer. . . #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #national_park_photography #ruins #cliffdwellings #pueblo #artifacts #findyourpark #igdaily #history #culture #amazing #beautifuldestinations #travel #travelphotography #roadtrip #nikon #nikond750 #amaturephotography #tamron #withmytamron #inspirations_unleashed

Touch that ground! 🌋 One of the first things we did when we made it down to the bottom of the Kilauea Iki Trail is touch that ground. 🌋 This black volcanic rock has a really different feel from most other rocks. It’s sharp, perforated, and not too fun to sit on (as we would find out later). 🌋 Make sure to touch the ground if your at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, especially along the Kilauea Iki Trail. 🌋 #landscape #landscapephotography #travelphotography #nationalpark #nationalparks #naturephotography #nationalparkservice #nature #discoverearth #naturephotography #wildernessculture #naturelovers #ourplanetdaily #outdoors #wilderness #hikes #hiking #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #outdoortones #nps #optoutside #outdoorphotography #thegreatoutdoors #volcanoes #kilaueaikitrail @hawaiivolcanoesnps

Bear Wallow Mountain! This fun hike in between Edneyville and Fairview, NC is one of those bald tops that makes you want to spread out a blanket and whip out some wine and cheese. There’s tons of room to spread out and explore, and plenty of spots to relax and take in the views. Despite the name, Bear Wallow is better known for its COWS rather than its bears. Friendly cows roam the pasture and add some southern charm to the already beautiful scenery. (Shoutout to @catlin_carter for being our model for this trip.) ↡↡ Pro Tip: Find the apple tree pictured above for a fresh treat for yourself... or for the cows.

CELEBRATION POST. today on my solo hike, I calculated how many nights I’ve spent outdoors this year. and while I’ve lost count after a few dozen, I reckon I’ve spent about 1/3 of the 2019 year sleeping out of doors. that’s over 120 days so far that I’ve slept outside (this counts tents, but not vans or yurts). and that makes me SO FUCKING PROUD. makes me feel like the wilderness is finally seeping into my bones and becoming a part of me. • • • • #ramblinwoman #hikinghoes #beutahful #findyourpark #outdoorwomen #desertrat #desertsolitaire

Just so you know, there is crystal clear water at Dry Tortugas National Park in #Florida. Forget all your troubles, feel the ocean breeze and take a stroll along the shore. Located about 70 miles west of Key West, the 100-square mile park is mostly open water with seven small islands. Accessible only by boat or seaplane, the #DryTortugas has picturesque blue waters, magnificent coral reefs, a vast assortment of rare birdlife and the stunning unfinished fortress, Fort Jefferson. Time stands still in this spectacular place. Photo by Stan Ford (www.sharetheexperience.org). #usinterior #travel #FindYourPark #NationalPark

How much do you really know about a place you visit? Do you make a research or at least read some fun facts before you go? For example, did you know that there more than 290 waterfalls in Yellowstone? Most people know about Upper and Lower Falls in Grand Canyon of Yellowstone when they visit. Or how about everyone asking where is a famous volcano that should erupt soon and cause Armageddon? 😅 without even realizing that the crater of the volcano is a size of a town and you were walking and driving across it all along. If you make an effort and do a little bit of research it makes your experience richer and you more appreciative. Safe travels to you full of curiosities!

I spent the last day and a half with @accessiblegeo learning about ways to make field work and field trips more inclusive in gorgeous @petrifiedforestnps. We talked about a variety of apps, site selection, and inclusive approaches while learning about the geology and paleontology of the park with fellow @txgeosciences alumni Bill Parker and @notthatmarsh. I recommend the IAGD for all geoscientists and geoscience educators! #pefo #nps #findyourpark #inclusion #accessibility #geoscience #education #paleontology #chinle #petrified #logs #phytosaur

We are sharing sneak peeks of Emily and Tim's July elopement at Palisade Head!! These two eloped just the two of them on the cliffs overlooking Lake Superior. They were so incredibly sweet and I was so honored to not only plan their elopement but be one of their witnesses. See more in our stories or highlight above "sneak peeks"!

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 #railroader #adventureawaits #gooutside #travelislife #wanderfolk #railways #nps #unionpacific #findyourpark #igutah #historic #explorer #utah #adventurer #igsouthwest #traveler #earthpics #train #steam #locomotive #purdue @lifeontherailroad
