🌄 Layers •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• As I traveled further down the Colorado River, I noticed new layers of rock of the Grand Canyon being exposed. The colors that once were level with my eyes were now towering high several layers above. This picture captures just a few of the layers that are different textures and colors. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #nationalparkgeek #rock #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #discoverearth #nakedplanet #bestdestinations #wanderlust #optoutside #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #jaw_dropping_shots #allaboutadventures #oneturnoffthemainroad #ipulledoverforthis #westbysouthwest #earthpix #wilderness_culture #adventurenthusiasts #amongthewild #adventurefreaks #tourwest #rafting #hike #coloradoriver #canyon
🚣‍♀️ This destination of the Grand Canyon was on day 4 of rafting on the Colorado River. It was a short hike with a big elevation gain that tested my balance as I walked along the edge of the cliff that Deer Creek had carved into the rock. This was one of many jaw dropping sights at this location. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #nationalparkgeek #deercreek #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #discoverearth #nakedplanet #bestdestinations #wanderlust #optoutside #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #jaw_dropping_shots #allaboutadventures #oneturnoffthemainroad #ipulledoverforthis #wildcalifornia #earthpix #wilderness_culture #adventurenthusiasts #amongthewild #adventurefreaks #waterfall #waterfallsfordays #tourwest #rafting #hike #coloradoriver #canyon
✝️ Happy Easter! He is Risen! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Captured this photo on my morning walk yesterday. It made me think about the renewing of the season of Spring which then made me think about Jesus dying on the cross giving us new life. I hope you have a great Easter! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #easter #happyeaster #heisrisen #godisgood #cross #hediedforus #abc30insider #ipulledoverforthis #oneturnoffthemainroad #discoverfresno #flower #flowers #morningwalk #california #ig_photooftheday #ig_captures #viewsfromcalifornia #wildcalifornia #californiacaptures #california4fun #iphonephotography #iphone

🌼 Golden Hills and Valleys •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• This was my first visit to Carrizo Plain National Monument so didn’t know what to expect besides seeing a lot of flowers. I set my phone to take me to the visitor center where I grabbed a map and was able to get information on the different concentrations of flowers. The trip did not disappoint with the different options within close proximity. The hills along highway 58 were unreal as they sat in the distance giving a bright yellow backdrop. It was an experience to remember. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #superbloom #superbloom2019 #carrizoplain #carrizoplainnationalmonument #abc30insider #ipulledoverforthis #neverstopexploring #beautifuldestinations #oneturnoffthemainroad #visitslo #viewsfromcalifornia #wildcalifornia #visitcalifornia #wilderness_culture #optoutside #flowers #adventurenthusiasts #amongthewild #wachthisinstagood #trackthebloom #spring #naturalcalifornia #beonksby #abc7eyewitness

🧗🏻‍♂️High Above •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I just watched Free Solo which is the best documentary that I have ever seen. I am not surprised at all that the movie won an Oscar and other respectful awards. I was surprised that it played tonight commercial free on Nat Geo when I was expecting to rent it once it came out later this week. There are several reasons I am posting these two pictures. One is that in the movie, there is a picture of @alexhonnold standing at this ledge looking down. These pictures were taken one week after he completed his free solo of El Capitan which at the time, I had no idea had happened. If you notice me in the second picture you can see that I am staying away from the edge because it is a 3,000 foot drop below. Alex climbed the 3,000 foot face of El Capitan with no ropes and here I was scared to get too close to the edge. I have a hard time wrapping my head around how he did it. The first picture shows someone who I don’t know who happened to be standing on the edge basically posing in a red jacket which reminded me of Alex’s red t-shirt he wore. Congrats to Alex and everyone who worked on the film. It will make every look at El Capitan even more magical. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #yosemite #ynp #elcapitan #nationalparkgeek #glacierpoint #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #abc30insider #discoverearth #nakedplanet #bestdestinations #wanderlust #shareyosemite #abc7eyewitness #visitcalifornia #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #theimaged #freesolo #jaw_dropping_shots #allaboutadventures #oneturnoffthemainroad #ipulledoverforthis #wildcalifornia #earthpix #wilderness_culture #adventurenthusiasts #wanderlust #amongthewild #adventurefreaks #natgeo
🌸 Blossom Trail •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Blossoms have appeared in the agricultural rich area known as the San Joaquin Valley. The variations of color come from what type of fruit or nut the tree produces. White blossoms are usually almond, plum or apple trees. Pink blossoms are usually apricot, peach or nectarine trees. These varieties can be viewed along the Fresno County Blossom Trail. www.goblossomtrail.com •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #blossomtrail #blossom #fresnocounty #fresno #playfresno #orchard #travelcalifornia #visitcalifornia #california #ag #agriculture #discoverfresno #ipulledoverforthis #spring #oneturnoffthemainroad #californiacaptures #instagood #california4fun #ig_flowers #flowers #naturalcalifornia #wildcalifornia #abc30insider #ig_photooftheday #ig_nature #springflowers #ig_california #theimaged #sanjoaquinvalley
📷 A Picture Worth a Thousand Memories •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I’m sure if you have seen pictures of the firefall and read the captions about how the conditions have to be perfect, stars aligned etc, etc. I’m going to pass that part up and tell you why this picture means so much to me. When I was scrolling through my pictures this one caught my eye and the memories of my one and only trip to see the Firefall so far came running through my mind. In fact it may very well have been a thousand memories and here are some of them: It was the decision to go just days before. It was inviting one of my friends with no plan but to drive up and see if we could get some shots. It was seeing posts from previous years that people were putting on their pages saying it was almost time. It was researching where to park, what to bring, where to walk/hike and still having no idea what to expect. It was putting snow chains on my own car for the first time. It was seeing so much snow, it was falling from the trees as we drove by. It was going through tunnel view and seeing the valley all white, covered in snow. It was eating cup o noodles style pho in the back of my van. It was walking at least a mile to a good viewing area and setting up our stuff. It was talking to other photographers about their experiences in Yosemite. It was seeing people I knew who I had no idea they were going to be there. It was waiting for a few hours until it finally started. It was the silence and all you could hear were the camera shutters. It was the amazement of the natural phenomenon that all of us were there for. Once it was over, it was all about heading home and talking about how our day had gone. It was wanting to see how all of the pictures turned out and start editing. It was so many more things than I have listed and I can’t wait to do it again. #yosemite #firefall #horsetailfalls #nationalparkgeek #waterfallsfordays #ig_nature #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #abc30insider #discoverearth #jaw_dropping_shots #bestdestinations #wanderlust #shareyosemite #yosemitevalley #visitcalifornia #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #yourshotphotographer #oneturnoffthemainroad
❄️ Yosemite Dream •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I have done this drive before but never in the snow. It was like a dream dropping into the Valley with snow everywhere. I could feel the presence of El Capitan through the trees and finally got to the clearing where I could see it fully. What a sight! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #yosemite #ynp #elcapitan #yosemite_national_park #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #abc30insider #discoverearth #nakedplanet #bestdestinations #wanderlust #shareyosemite #yosemitevalley #visitcalifornia #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #theimaged #jaw_dropping_shots #snow #allaboutadventures #oneturnoffthemainroad #ipulledoverforthis #wildcalifornia #earthpix #wilderness_culture #adventurenthusiasts #wanderlust #amongthewild #adventurefreaks #natgeotravel

🕯 Fire Fall on the Eyes •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I decided to go up for the day to see if I could witness the great natural phenomenon known as the fire fall. As others gathered around, I found that some have been coming for years and have not always seen it happen because water has to be flowing from horsetail falls and there can’t be any clouds blocking the sun as it sets. Monday night did not disappoint especially for my first time seeing it. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #yosemite #firefall #ynp #horsetailfalls #yosemite_national_park #nationalparkgeek #waterfallsfordays #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #abc30insider #discoverearth #nakedplanet #bestdestinations #wanderlust #shareyosemite #yosemitefalls #yosemitevalley #visitcalifornia #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #allaboutadventures #oneturnoffthemainroad #wildcalifornia #earthpix #wilderness_culture #canon #adventurenthusiasts #wanderlust #amongthewild #waterfall #natgeotravel
