I want to cross the sands of time with you and listen to your thoughts forever
• White Sands, New Mexico.
It’s so quiet here.
Breathing life around here.
I remember silence.
White Sands has this way of making you feel as if you are in a dream.
Or maybe you stepped into another universe.
Endless waves of white sand rolling across the land.
I closed my eyes.
I opened them and this figure was there.
I swore it was someone I knew.
Though that was impossible.
So maybe I was in fact, sleeping.
Or that place between sleep and awake
Where you still remember dreaming
But if it was all a dream. Simply a dream.
I wish you to know that you inspired it.

Y’all know I love Colorado, but Utah gives CO a run for its money.
I went up to the top of the mountain and saw the grey-white mist was roaming freely amidst the wilderness. The autumnal smell was omnipresent. My eyes were maneuvering its way through the mist.
While trying to see the blurry layers of valleys afar, I heard a birdsong. It was so intense and musical that I turned to locate it. I saw a beautiful blue bird.
Morning, majestic mountain, mist, and this melodious birdsong gifted me a memorable moment that morning. It refreshed me.
During my travels, many unknown and uncertain mornings have gifted me many a surreal scene. Now I can't even think of trading such uncertain and unknown mornings with the certainty of a desktop job. Unconventional paths are risky, but the rewards are sweeter too.
Repost from @yellowstonenps using @RepostRegramApp - “Is the park open in the winter?”
Yes! We are open year-round, but access to certain areas of the park changes depending on when you visit. Right now the only access into the park by car is from the North Entrance. From there you can visit places like Mammoth Hot Springs and Lamar Valley. To learn all about winter access and dates visit our roads page. @scenicsafaris The south entrance opens December 15th for snowmobile tours & snowcoach tours! Let the count down begin #32 days ❄️ • • • #Yellowstone#yellowstonenationalpark#mammothhotsprings#findyourpark

This summer I got to climb the South Sister, the slow climb gave me time to admire the beauty. Do you ever just want to stare at a certain view forever? Life is always moving, time is fleeting, so like a pressed flower or a memorised poem I paint to capture these places for myself and others. Sisters mountains is one of those places, gazing this print months after my climb I am taken back to that brief instant to breathe another calm breath, to remember what courage feels like when the mountains feel too harsh and fill my heart with gratitude for more reasons than I can count.
Treat everyone with politeness and kindness, not because they are nice, but because you are.

Life is short and our lives are busy but there is always time for kindness. #worldkindnessday#kindnessmatters

We drove through the night & slept in the rig. Alarms went off well before sunrise & we were off. Hiking up in the dark is always fun because when you head down it a completely different hike. We ate coffee cake and enjoyed the sun dancing on the valley below us. Moments in the mountain where all the worries just melt away. 💛

Hey guys! Here we are admiring the Painted Wall - Colorado’s highest cliff inside Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It stands at a staggering 2,250 ft/685m!
By comparison the Burj Khalifa in Dubai would be the only manmade structure that is taller! It’s truly an amazing national park that gets less visitors than it deserves. Check out our story to see highlights from three days of camping and backpacking down into the steep canyon!🏕
I fully intended to not do anything on my day off yesterday, but then I accidentally vacuumed, ironed my work clothes, did laundry, swept, dusted, took out the garbage, cleaned the bathrooms, made scones, did yard work, and then made dinner. I finally sat down to relax a little after 5, the same time I normally get off of work. 😫

Collecting bat guano, plant fibers, and bits of mud with their bills, cave swallows make open cup-shaped nests that are used for many years with the birds adding to the nest annually. Their nests are often lined with feathers, fine grasses, cotton-like plant fibers, and thin strips of bark. Colonial nesters, cave swallows often build their nests in close proximity to one another as evidenced in Carlsbad Cavern’s natural entrance. Historically only nesting in caves or sinkholes, they now also find safety and nest in structures such as concrete culverts and highway underpasses.
Where do you feel safe and why?

Coleccionando guano de murciélagos, fibras de plantas y pedacitos de fango con sus picos, las golondrinas puebleras hacen nidos abiertos en formas de vaso que son usados por muchos años con los pájaros agregando al nido anualmente. Sus nidos a menudo son forrados con plumas, yerbas finas, fibras de plantas similar al algodón y tiras delgadas de la corteza de los árboles. Haciendo nidos en colonias, las golondrinas puebleras a menudo construyen sus nidos a cercana proximidad de los otros como es visto en la entrada de la Caverna de Carlsbad. Históricamente sólo haciendo nidos en cuevas o sumideros, ellos ahora también encuentran seguridad y hacen nidos en estructuras hechas por el hombre como las alcantarillas y los pasos inferiores de las carreteras. ¿En dónde usted se siente seguro y por qué?

Mommy daughter play date at at Big Bradley Falls overlook hike in NC. Eckhart Tolle suggests being present and I can certainly do that observing my daughter play in the wild. Tossing rocks in the water and building with sand is all we need to feel joyful! Retreating to Nature works like a charm 🎉
Who out there is from the Pacific Northwest? We want to know what you love most about exploring your corner of the world! Today, we're checking out Ruby Beach in @olympicnationalpark with @remember.2.explore. This beautiful park covers more than 1,400 square miles of land and is home to three distinct ecosystems. "We enjoyed the Olympic Peninsula a lot. There is so much diversity in such a small area...There's nothing like being able to go from walking through a thick rainforest to playing on the beach and getting soaked in just two hours. The nature there is just incredible," Julia says. ⠀
If you've been to Olympic, what was your favorite part of your visit? Share with us in the comments below! #gowithnugget⠀
Fall at Bridalveil Fall • 👋 Krista here! Spending this glorious Fall Monday doing some Yosemite Valley exploration. The autumn colors explode against the expansive walls of granite- being here this time of year is so inspiring! 🍂🌞🏞
Throwback to Bryce Canyon! As we are transitioning seasons, I wanted to show off one of my favorite vacations ever. Even with midday lighting, this place was amazing! As you all voted for a winter shot, I wanted to post a something other than a typical Milwaukee sunrise. I hope you enjoy! #WHPseasonal
