Cypress Tree Tunnel . The night before this, caught an epic sunset on top of a mountain over looking a fog covered San Francisco. That night slept in the back of my 4Runner on the side of US 1 on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Woke up at 5am drove an hour to this spot to be met with a moody foggy tunnel made from these beautiful cypress trees. Caught this shot just as the fog was lifting and the sun was starting to shine through. . Such an epic morning! . . . #adventure #explore #cypresstreetunnel #pointreyes #landscapephotography #landscape_love #landscapecaptures #earthpix #eclectic_shotz #californiaadventure #caliexplored #moodygrams #moody_moments #canonusa #natgeo #natgeoadventure #natgeotravel #travellife #travelphotography #traveltheworld #travelgram #travel_drops #landscape_lovers #bestofthegoldenstate #wonderfulwestcoast #wonderfulcalifornia #rawcalifornia #hellocalifornia #visitcalifornia #naturalcalifornia

Coral-bellied Ring-necked Snakes (𝘋𝘪𝘢𝘥𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘱𝘶𝘯𝘤𝘵𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘴 𝘱𝘶𝘭𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘶𝘴 ) are one of the most attractive subspecies of "ringnecks." Though all ring-necked snakes feature a bright and colorful belly, 𝘋. 𝘱. 𝘱𝘶𝘭𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘶𝘴 displays it's colors a couple scale rows higher up than most others, making them more visible . Most ringnecks simply look like a small black or gray snake from above. A California endemic, this subspecies occupies a narrow strip of habitat on the western slope of the Sierra Nevadas. Recent studies have called into question the validity of 𝘋𝘪𝘢𝘥𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘱𝘶𝘯𝘤𝘵𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘴 subspecies in California.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #ringnecksnake #smallbutmighty #californiaendemic #endemicspecies #herpetology #snake #snakesofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #fieldherping #herping #herpsofinstagram #reptilesofig #colubrid #rearfanged #venomous #venom #reptilephotography #snakephotography #herpphotography #california_igers #wildcalifornia #rawcalifornia #naturalcalifornia #californiacaptures #californiawildlife #nature_up_close #igscwildlife #ig_naturesbest #animal_sultans #tinysnake

Yosemite has towering granite, lush meadows and raging waterfalls. What is not to love about the park! If you haven't been there, add it to your bucket list now. - - 📸 @reneeroaming - - Have a look at her page for wanderlust shots.

Looking out over half dome…💭 Not one to publicly display affection much but shout out to this guy for everything that he is and does for me. From going on crazy adventures and all the fun stuff we do together to building me up and helping me become a more patient, kind person. Thank you for all the amazing memories and for putting up with me even when I scream “fala comigo” at you when you’re staring at your phone screen 😂😉 Excited for our next adventure, você é demais 😁

It wasn’t until I started my volunteer shift today at @siliconvalleyanimalcontrol that I realized I was hoping to see kittens I had clicked with last week. Although it seemed like one or two did get adopted, many were still there, and it was incredible to see how much less fearful some had become in just a week’s time. Sometimes I think about missing out on adopting a kitten I connect with, but after meeting new kittens this week, I’m realizing that actually there are a lot of little ones that love connecting. Happy weekend 😊

HST Day 7 | 6.5 miles The Last Day. I had some mild altitude sickness/ dehydration the night before, and was really looking forward to sleeping in. But thankfully, mountain time is different than real life, and my bladder had other plans, because it dragged me out of the tent to see this amazing sunrise, maybe the best of my life. Unfortunately in my sleepiness, I did not pay much attention to my camera settings and I have very few not blurry pictures of this incredible scene. Good thing I got a few good ones. I enjoyed the hike down to Lone Pine Lake and the Portal. It was fun seeing new trail again, but it truly was a difficult hike out. I couldn’t imagine doing Whitney in a day! We stopped a few times for breaks, and for one last swim, but burgers were soon calling us. The last couple of miles we practically ran down the trail, ready for the joys of civilization. And we were treated with soda, cheeseburgers, and our family. What a great ending to an awesome hike! • I hope you liked the HST series! Blog posts are up through Day 5, but I won’t be posting anything more for another 2 weeks probably. Currently en route to the next adventure! Thanks for following along everyone! 🤗 . . . . . . #goparks #findyourpark #nationalparkspartnership #the59parks #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #naturalcalifornia #optoutside #ourwild #wanderwomeninc #hikingthru #wildernessculture #thisismyroute #merknmountains #goatworthy #getoutstayout #thruhikerthursday #girlswhohike #seekmorewilderness #everydaywild #unlimitedsequoia #alltrails #caliexplored #hikingtheglobe #sheexplores #womenwhohike #thruhiking #highsierratrail @womenwhohike @she_explores @sheisthewild @girlswhohike @sunsetmag @nationalparkspartnership @natgeotravel @usinterior @outdoorwomen @wanderwomeninc

When i plan travels for my family, I’m always looking for ways to relax and linger together. Out-of-the-way hot springs are always such a coup!

Another from the mini-getaway @tavovargasgarcia and I fit in while we were picking up green coffee for him to roast for @fultonstreetcoffee This is definitely a spot worth taking the long way around to see or take photos of. One warning though, if this shot inspires you to take your own drone out to the pacific coast, be extremely careful; Large parts of this coastline are within a no-fly zone designated by NOAA to protect marine life. Considering that drones look and sound like murder machines from from hell, flying here might scare some wildlife so badly that they abandon their young and never return. To help protect this essential habitat. 1. ALWAYS check @airmapio before flying 2. Do not fly beyond the mean-high-water-line (usually this is where the vegetation ends and sand begins ) 3. Even if you are outside the boundaries of the no-fly zone, do not fly if wildlife is nearby! Also this lighthouse is in a state park and they do not permit drones on their property. Technically they can't prohibit flight into the airspace above the property as long as you operate from outside of it, but its kind of a dick move. So just keep your flight short and away from their property. _ #findyourpark #rei1440project #nps100 #optoutside #theoutbound #parks #nationalpark #americasbestidea #getoutstayout #keepitwild #wildbayarea #bay_shooters #streetsofsf #roamtheplanet #hiddengems #californiathroughmylens #hellocalifornia #SUITCASEtravels #highway1discoveryroute #cultureofcreatives #best_earthscapes #visualsofearth #outdoortones #nomadict #bestravelphoto #bigpicworld #naturalcalifornia #california_travelers #dramatic_seascapes

Friends, today is the first day of the week-long global #ClimateStrike >>> our collective sleepwalking is maddening to me >>> governments doing next to nothing, or in our case, making it worse >>> corporations allowed to trample our future while folks lap up their products >> our milquetoast reaction as a society, choking into the future unwilling to do anything but “well I recycle”. ↟ Honeys, it’s now required that we do more. This is not a fucking drill. Yes, fucking. You got me cussing on social media, that’s how fucking angry. ↟ I’m sadly missing today’s protests because I going to see about some trees in ↟ #Sequoia ↟ but I take my protest everywhere I go, and I’ll be at it next week at various LA events. I’ll post in stories. Dm if you want to join. ↟ When I advocate and educate in real life I’m fighting for the existence of my own species, but probably mostly for this species. Today I recommit to the fight, to do more than just hug a tree, but actively battle for it and all our rights to live. #treehugger #globalclimatestrike #climatecrisis #sequoianationalpark #journeyman 👣

“Low Tide Cove” 2014. Occupied Yurok Homelands. ______ Back when I lived in the northwest, this was one of my favorite beaches. Only [easily] accessible during the lowest tides, the coast’s jagged cliffs and coves make for nice reading nooks. It was also was one of the few spots near my old home with cell phone reception. 🌲😅🌊

I think a trip to The Redwoods should be covered on health insurance - it could be a PT exercise! Instead of staring at a screen all day, your head and neck get great exercise looking up for a change! 😆 Also, joking aside, it’s just so wonderfully peaceful and soothing, I think it’s great for your mental health too! . . . . . . . #redwoodnationalpark #natureisamazing #treadlightly #nps #treesofinstagram #visitcalifornia #californialove #tree_brilliance #ig_nature_naturally #fifty_shades_of_nature #landscape_capture #forest_captures #americathebeautiful #californiadreaming #nationalparkgeek #parkroamers #splendid_nature #naturalcalifornia #beautifuldestination #landscape_lover #westbysouthwest #findyourpark #getoutandexplore #ig_captured #hey_ihadtosnapthat #national_park_photography

Tree Nymph... . . In Frame the lovely @nature_high_chick A tree nymph in Greek mythology, is a nymph or nature spirit who lives in trees and takes the form of a beautiful young woman. Since I’m headed to the land of trees this weekend I figured this is an appro “Flashback Friday”. Plus it’s probably one of my favorite photos I shot this year.

I loved the Crystal Lake trail because it’s got perfect aerial views of all the lakes along the way, plus it’s a relatively easy and short one you can squeeze in with other activities. Like the brewery 10 min away. We saw a bunch of hikers from the trail there so it must be a popular combo.

The trails at #HendyWoods were nice and wide and for the most part flat. I needed an easy hike in the woods to loosen my back and let go of any worries I am subconsciously holding onto. This is such a perfect trail to do this! AND we stopped at Toulouse Winery after to try some wines in the beautiful Anderson Valley. We are usually tired from our hike & drive to Mendocino County that we just head home but this time we decided to stop and try the wines in Anderson Valley. Bonus, we had views of Hendy Woods from the deck of the tasting room! From now on, we are going to stop in at a winery on our way home and check them all out! Do you have any favorites that we should hit?? ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #smilinginsonoma #wwhmember #everytrailconnects #freshairandfreedom #thegreatoutdoors #getoutstayout #localadventurer #californiacaptures #theoutdoorpassion #outsideculture #betterouthere #naturalcalifornia #outdoormaster #lovewhereyoulive #rawcalifornia #exploremore #takemoreadventures #womenwhohike #happyhiker #castateparks #hikecalifornia #wildcalifornia #viewfromthetrail #hikingandhappiness #hikemoreworryless #natureshots #natureaddict #hikingday #obsessedwithnature

I could do this for days. We almost did....not really, I mean you can't get too lost in #HendyWoods but we did take a couple wrong turns...or just turns that weren't in the direction we were supposed to be going. 🙊 Thankful for the #alltrails app and it sounding an alarm every time we went off our route! It saved us a couple miles! There are fire roads in this park that seem like they could be part of the hike but seriously, don't follow them. They lead you away from the best parts! We probably added a half mile onto our chosen route this time...how far have you gone astray before realizing it?⁠ ⁠ 📷: @smilinginsonoma (the "navigator" ) 😎⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #hikethenwine #hikingadventures #everytrailconnects #theoutdoorpassion #freshairandfreedom #getoutstayout #localadventurer #california_igers #welivetoexplore #lifeofadventures #outsideculture #BetterOutHere #thegreatoutdoors #naturalcalifornia #werehikers #outdoormaster #lovewhereyoulive #rawcalifornia #exploremore #takemoreadventures #liveauthentic #happyhiker #visitmendocino #castateparks #findyourselfoutside #soulfulladventure #peoplewhoadventure #wandermore

Around the courtyard where my studio is, we have an adorable art school, a djembe playing realtor, a boisterous wine tour guide and then there's me, a multi-passionate entrepreneur (more on that explanation later 😉 ). ✨ Someone gave this sunflower succulent eyes. 😍 This little gesture put a gigantic smile on my face, and is a reminder that life is busy and sometimes chaotic but I need to slow down long enough to see the quirky and the beautiful. 🌻 So, if you had to guess, who do you think did it and what quote would you give this pic? 🤷‍♀️🏻 I'll update the post with my fave in a few days!

Somehow I hadn’t seen the movie Midnight in Paris. I’ve watched it a handful of times in the last couple weeks, am obsessed, and have been telling everyone they must see it. To which they reply, it’s incredible and they loved it when they saw it years ago. I don’t know how I missed it. If you haven’t seen Midnight in Paris, watch it, immediately, it’s free on YouTube. And then DM me about it. If you follow me, I can almost guarantee you’ll love it . It’s about artists, writers, those with a different take on life, those who feel born of another time, it’s about love, nostalgia, about the magic that is Paris. And the cameos!! I’ll say no more as to not give anything away for those who haven’t seen it. Although I think I’m apparently the last person . I downloaded the movie onto my computer when I went to live in Paris for a poetry program a few years back. I thought it would be ideal to watch while there but I was too busy writing and loving Paris to have time to watch a film about those things. Which now seems fitting to the movie’s message about being in the present . This picture is the light from the setting sun along the Pacific Ocean a few nights ago. It’s hard not be present while watching sunsets. The Golden Age Thinking—that another time was better—is real and especially so for artists and intellectuals. There’s a powerful pull to the past, it’s mystique and seemingly simpler time. I know I personally romanticize the past, in many ways. But there is an awareness that comes with acknowledging and appreciating where you are, what is, in this age, in this exact moment.

HST Day 6 | 8.8 miles Mt. Whitney summit day! I could tell you that we woke up before dawn to start hiking up those switchbacks and that it was a slow, hard climb to the top (much harder than the last time for me ), but what I really want to say is how proud I am of my mom for summiting Whitney! She was doubting herself the whole time we were hiking, even up to the night before, and during the hike up to trail crest, not thinking she would be able to make it past the junction. It was quite annoying actually, because I KNEW she could do it. And she did it! We may not have been the fastest pair on the mountain, but we soaked it all in. I am so proud of my mom for facing her fears, pushing away her self-doubt, and persevering through this difficult hike - all of it - not just the Whitney day. For me, it was even sweeter the second time around 💫 #womenwhohike #sheexplores #goparks #findyourpark #nationalparkspartnership #the59parks #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #naturalcalifornia #optoutside #ourwild #wanderwomeninc #hikingthru #wildernessculture #thisismyroute #merknmountains #goatworthy #getoutstayout #thruhikerthursday #girlswhohike #seekmorewilderness #everydaywild #unlimitedsequoia #alltrails #caliexplored #hikingtheglobe #thruhiking #highsierratrail @womenwhohike @she_explores @sheisthewild @girlswhohike @sunsetmag @nationalparkspartnership @natgeotravel @usinterior @outdoorwomen @wanderwomeninc
