I accidentally deleted my previous post 😅, so here's a sunset shot from the Grand Canyon. -
P.S. Mosquitoes are the worst.

Today, I set a goal to read 5-10 books this summer. As a college instructor, I read a lot, but most of the time, the reading comes from textbooks or scientific journals. I'm excited to read books that aren't related to nutrition or health.

Have you set any goals for the summer?

Sometimes things are better left untouched.

This is an unedited iPhone shot from home last night.

For a long time, I've been frustrated with the changes on Instagram. The newest algorithm greatly decreased my page's exposure, and made it difficult to reach the number of people I reached in the past. A year ago, when the photos were presented in chronological order, my images were getting 800+ likes. Now I'm lucky if my photos are even seen by that many people.
Lately, I've done some reflecting, and I've begun to realize how stupid that was. Followers, likes, features, etc. might bring temporary satisfaction, but none of it matters in real life. What matters are the memories you've captured, the people you meet, and the adventures you'll never forget. I've met some amazing individuals through Instagram, and I've been inspired to travel to new places that I never would have seen if it weren't for this app. And for that, I'm incredibly grateful.

Here's a rare photo of myself lookin like a noob in Antelope Canyon.

I'm always looking for new places to visit, so I'm curious, what's your favorite National Park/travel destination in the U.S.? Comment below! ⬇️

Bonus points if you can spot the couple in this image!

Earlier this year, I was walking outside in the rain, and slipped on the grass while picking up garbage. Unfortunately, it was an awkward fall, and I partially tore my MCL. Embarrassing, huh?What's the dumbest injury you've ever had?

I have two words to describe the Tetons:
Oooohhhhhh. Aahhhhhhhh.

Nature is the art of God.

Never underestimate the impact you can have on the lives of others.

Happy Mother's Day to all moms!

Travel not to escape life, but so life doesn't escape you.

Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.

My second year as a college instructor is coming to a close, and I can honestly say this job is everything I'd hoped it would be. While I'm SUPER excited for summer and the adventures that lie ahead, I look forward to next year and the students who, in many ways, have as great an impact on my life as I have on theirs.
