Post four of Independence Pass avalanche sites. Some of the avalanche sites crossed over the road and went up the other side of the valley. To witness this force of nature and to hear it would have been amazing! But it does bear in mind why they close this pass in the winter, to dangerous for human or beast! #independencepass #avalanche #colorado #coloradogram #5280 #rmtiiphotography #coloradosky50 #visitcolorado #coloradocameraclub #viewcolorado #jj_colorado #coloradotography #photographer #colorado_fame #onlyincolorado #outtherecolorado #coloradical #ig_addicts #theamericancollective #photography #colorfulcolorado #findyourcolorado #wildandco #coloradogrammers #openroadcolorado

Post one, I made my yearly trek over Independence Pass. I try to do this right after they opened it up, but because I was out of town, had to wait a couple of weeks. Still lots of snow on the top, but what was more humbling was the 23+ avalanche areas I saw both on the east and west sides of the pass. The amount of force to rip up trees from the ground or to shatter four feet thick tree trunks is mind dumbing. This was amazing two hours to stop and see everything! #independencepass #avalanche #colorado #coloradogram #5280 #rmtiiphotography #coloradosky50 #visitcolorado #coloradocameraclub #viewcolorado #jj_colorado #coloradotography #photographer #colorado_fame #onlyincolorado #outtherecolorado #coloradical #ig_addicts #theamericancollective #photography #colorfulcolorado #findyourcolorado #wildandco #coloradogrammers #openroadcolorado

I remember driving through California and looking at the beautiful scenery...that had a smog like haze over it, no matter where I drove. Here in Colorado, I am about 50 miles away from #coloradosprings in South Park, and I see nothing but white clouds and blue skies! I love my home! #southpark #clouds #blueskies #colorado #coloradogram #5280 #rmtiiphotography #coloradosky50 #visitcolorado #coloradocameraclub #viewcolorado #jj_colorado #coloradotography #photographer #colorado_fame #onlyincolorado #outtherecolorado #coloradical #ig_addicts #theamericancollective #photography #colorfulcolorado #findyourcolorado #wildandco #coloradogrammers #openroadcolorado

We’re exploring Colorado this week and loving all these amazing hikes so close to Denver! 🌲
⠀⠀
Just this morning we went to Trading Post Trail, which is a really popular and short hike with amazing red rocks and beautiful scenery. 🏜
⠀⠀
For all you Rockies lovers, we’d love to know your favorite trails in the area? What should we go explore?
⠀⠀
(Also, to avoid confusion this photo was taken in Arches, UT! We just wanted to share some red rocks this morning. 😛)

The hike up to Lake Helene was a little more challenging than we thought it would be. We wanted an easy hike to Odessa but upon reaching this point, we were both exhausted from the snow and sun. Turned out, we couldn't get safely to Odessa from this side anyway (tried from Fern Lake before) so we happily had some lunch, walked over to Two Rivers lake, then slogged back to town. 🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴 #colorado #visitcolorado #hikecolorado #viewcolorado #estespark #visitestespark #rmnp #rockymountain #rockymountainnationalpark #rockynps #wildandco #viewsfromcolorado #coloradotography #coloradoshared #jj_colorado #splendidmountains #nps #usparksandmonuments #nationalparkgeek #national_park_pictures #nationalparkpictures #nationalparkservice #nature #wilderness #agameoftones #artofvisuals #alltrails

So why do I go to Pride? I will never have to come out. I won’t have sleepless nights when I’m tossing and turning with the worst case scenarios playing themselves over and over in my mind. About friends that I may lose. About parents and family that may disown me. About work mates that may now be uncomfortable around me. About people not knowing now how to act around me or not wanting to be around me. I will never have to hide who I am and who I love for fear of those things happening. Or worst. I won’t have to deal with the names ~ slurs ~ condemnation ~ violence from beatings to rape to death ~ religions wanting to condemn me ~ organizations that believe I can be converted ~ governments that will sentence me to jail or death because of who I choose to sleep with or want to marry. Every day I get to be myself without fear without limit. I believe in the “more perfect union” espoused in our Constitution’s preamble and want to work towards it. I want to eliminate bigotry and celebrate our differences while also recognizing that there’s more than binds us than separates us. So I attend Pride because I thinks it’s important to be an ally. To say that love is love and should be celebrated. To give people a safe space and the freedom to be who they are. I had a date ask me that first question tonight because he couldn’t understand why I would go to Pride. “Why would you go to Pride? If you like men, then it makes no sense for you to be there” ~ he told me. ‘It makes it even more important for me to be there’ ~ I responded. ‘We make progress because we recognize power imbalances and try to fix them ~ as a society, culture. The world isn’t a zero sum game so it takes all parties coming together to create that more perfect union. And it’s in that the same way that it’s vital for men to become allies in the me too movement. It’s not just about being on the right side of history ~ it’s about ensuring that the arc and momentum continues in the correct direction’. I pulled out my phone to show him what Pride was like and I saw that three years ago today, while in Ljubljana, Slovenia I happened upon a pride celebration. Rest of post: bit.ly/PRIDEally

While there's no real answer to what's the best national park in a human's mind, it's pretty obvious @greatsanddunesnps wins for a dog. It's one of the only national parks that allows dogs to explore too and its basically one giant sandbox. 📸: @hikingwithheels of @thedenverpup

We'd never been to Sprague Lake in RMNP, probably because we're such hiking snobs we figured it was for "amateurs and tourists with kids". 😉 Semi joking, we're really not that snobby but we'd always passed it on our way to higher altitude destinations. Pays to slow yourself the heck down and enjoy the simple beauty. We were nearly alone, watched a storm brew over Hallett, and saw a moose. Oh yeah, we'll be back 💙 #artoftheshutter30 #colorado #visitcolorado #hikecolorado #viewcolorado #estespark #visitestespark #rmnp #rockymountain #rockymountainnationalpark #rockynps #wildandco #viewsfromcolorado #coloradotography #coloradoshared #jj_colorado #hiking #climbing #mountains #alltrails #backpacking #splendidmountains #hikingbangers #wildernessnation #TrekkingToes #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #national_park_pictures #usparksandmonuments #coloradical

5,000 acres of ranchland along Saguache Creek in the San Luis Valley are now conserved in perpetuity thanks to @trustforpublicland and @ccalt_org. Six ranches belonging to the Hill family contribute to a 21,000-acre stretch of conserved land along the corridor. GOCO funds supported the purchase of a conservation easement to protect the Hill properties, meaning this land will never be developed. To learn more about this huge win for Colorado conservation, read the press release through the link in our bio. ⠀ ⠀ Photo by Maggie Hanna, Colorado Cattlemen's Agricultural Land Trust⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #colorado #coloradotography #coloradogram #coloradolive #rockymountains #coloradocameraclub #coloradolife #coloradoinstagram #jj_colorado #colorfulcolorado #coloradolove #visitcolorado #coloradical #igcolorado #coloradophotography #coloradoliving #viewcolorado #wheredoyouGOCO #coloradooutdoors #coloradowild

‼️This is the main difference between dermaplaning and just “shaving” your face⁣‼️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Dermaplaning helps to exfoliate the superficial layer of the skin if you’re shaving your skin at home with a normal razor it’ll take off the hairs but it won’t get close enough to remove the dead skin cells! ⁣Have a licensed professional perform dermaplaning instead for the added exfoliation and anti-aging benefits ⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ #skincare #skin #antiaging #healthyskin #colorado #acne #boulder #coloradotography #denver #bouldering #facial #clearskin #serum #collagen #glowingskin #naturalskincare #coloradolove #antiacne #coloradogram #jj_colorado #arvada #antiwrinkle #coloradoesthetician #dermaplaning #exfoliation #exfoliateyourskin #deadskinremoval #skincare #skinawareness
