Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. The first point in the country to see the sun. We woke up at 3:45am to get out of our tent to stand in the 40 degree weather waiting for the sun to rise 😅 It was worth it! 📸: @david.desouza . . . . #acadianationalpark #camping #familycamping #thegreatoutdoors #hikingwithatoddler #momswhohike #campingwithkids #maine #nature #optoutside #outdoorfamilies #naturechild #getoutandplay #raiseawildchild #outdoors #toddler #mothernature #naturekids #nature #explore #parenting #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #toddlermom #wildandfreechildren

Skydiving Over the Great Pyramids | Photograph by Laszlo Andacs . “In December 2018, an extremely unique opportunity was given to a small group of skydivers to jump over the Great Pyramids of Giza. I was one of the lucky participants of the three-day event which allowed us to make five jumps at the ancient site,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Laszlo Andacs. “Besides being a skydiver, I’m also a photographer. This is one of the best shots I was able to capture, lining up the circle formation with the Pyramids below. Not an easy task while everything, including myself, is moving at 120mph.” This photo was selected for the June 21, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series. — “I love it, this is just so epic. What an absolutely amazing experience, I bet it was such an adrenaline rush. Fantastic job framing the pyramid within the circle of skydivers. This is such an adventurous photo. Thanks for the detailed caption, I love the story narrative you are sharing. Very well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

The view last Friday, looking up at the Golden Gate Bridge from the top “barbette” tier of Fort Point, a National Historic Site built between 1853 and 1861. Joseph Strauss, the chief engineer for the Golden Gate Bridge, initially expected Fort Point would be demolished to make way for a southern anchorage point for the GGB, but after visiting the fort, he changed his mind and instead designed an arch to be built over it. In a letter he wrote in 1937, he explained that after seeing the fort, he felt it was a “fine example of a mason’s art” and hoped it would someday be declared a national monument. His hope became a reality in 1970, when Congress made it a National Historic Site. Today it’s fully restored with exhibits about the fort’s artillery, living quarters, and history. It’s open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, between 10 AM and 5 PM :) Highly recommend!

Pro Tip - Park timings are 8-5. Do not go there during park hours lol. Go by 6am to beat the crowd. You’ll literally find local joggers and bikers. It would also allow you to be able to park on road sides on spots like this. . . Btw this is parking lot 5. Do make a stop here to see the entire park from one straight angle. . . #colorado #mountains #nature #adventure #hiking #instagood #naturephotography #optoutside #explore #outdoors #roadtrip #earthramblers #getoutside #gopro #wanderlust #coloradolife #hiking_hobby #outofoffice #goproshot #travelmoments #gowandering #tenba #hiking_hobby #hikingbangers

2019 Day 153/365. Ya, ya, ya late post. We were in a state of delirium after a frightening drive down the mountain during a snowstorm, viewing a car being eaten by boulders from a mudslide (yes you read correctly), and lack of sleep. Needless to say we deserved a photo shoot. 💁🏻‍♀️ . . . #Yosemite #TunnelViews #Hiking #OptOutside #ViewsOnViewsOnViews #CAadventures #MakingMemories #Sisters #KDChi #SeedPlanting #REIadventures #Travel #Laugh #Live #KnockOnWood #Ayyyyeeee #Merp #LindaListen #BearBed #ItsTheLittleThings #Bloopers2019

Neist Point // Mallaig // Quiraing . Don't cheap out on a polariser. This first photo of Neist Point has taken about a dozen attempts to edit in the last two years until I was happy with it because I used a cheap-shite polariser filter which ruined the colours.

HIKEhopper’s SHE ASCENDS first day trip to Scenic State Park was one for the books! We spent the day hiking, kayaking, practicing yoga and building friendships 💚. There is nothing quite as powerful as surrounding yourself with positive energy and moving your body! #hikehoppers #optoutside #womenempoweringwomen #letshikemn #sheascends

I’ve been waiting patiently to share this with all of you. & I’m so excited to finally see a dream come to life. This Saturday @newmexicoprints is hosting the Grand Opening to their incredible gallery space, where my work will be on display alongside some of the most talented & humble photographers I know. Together, we have worked tirelessly & passionately to bring New Mexico a visual display that we can all be proud of. The quality of work & it’s presentation will be unlike anything you’ve seen before. I’m personally inviting you & all of your friends to come out to this event. More than anything, we need New Mexico’s support & the people to rally around such a unifying & beautiful experience. Come on out, buy a print, invest in the art, enjoy the community, & have a great time! In addition I will be giving away a couple prints! Which you can win by reposting this video on your story & tagging @newmexicoprints I’ll see you all this Saturday June 29th from 12pm - 10pm at 205 Silver Ave., ABQ!

“So, where else have you been hiking?” I asked the kid bringing up the back of the group. “What? Oh, no - this is the first time I’ve ever been hiking,” he laughed back. ...cue my stunned silence. ↟ And so it was for many of the eleven middle school students I spent this past weekend with while instructing on a two day camping trip. Though these students live in Longmont, for many of them it was their first time on a hiking trail, first time in a national park, and first time ever camping. (And, yes - all in 34 degree weather with constant rain and a night of heavy snow. These kids were champs!) ↟ This weekend I felt my privilege in a way that I often entirely forget about in the places I choose to live. Hiking, visiting national parks, being able to afford the gear to comfortably spend a night out in the wilderness seems to be the norm, but for so many it’s not only unusual, it feels out of reach for one reason or another. ↟ Thankfully, despite the chilly conditions, the beauty of RMNP did its thing and captivated these kids in a way that made them all declare that they wanted to return to similar places. And, of course, the best thing about hiking is that it can be the most low maintenance activity around: it’s free. There’s no fancy gear required. And you can do it just about anywhere within an hour or so of wherever you are in the world. Witnessing the realization of this in these young kids was a beautiful thing. ↟ Feeling extra super grateful right now for my outdoor community, for all those who introduced me to the outdoors when I was a kid, and for the power of nature for making my job pretty darn easy...even when I’m so cold I can’t feel my toes. #outdooreducatorlife

3 1/2 hours until we get home and we are just sitting in traffic. It is a great time to listen to an audio book (American Wolf | Nate Blakeslee) and mindlessly scroll Instagram. What an amazing weekend visiting friends and celebrating the BEAUTIFUL love of Drew & Jo. ✨💕
