The past 5 weeks exploring Alaska have been an absolute dream. We visited 8 National Parks, flown in 25 planes (16 of which were tiny bush or float planes), driven 1000+ miles, taken 2 boat trips, walked on a glacier, camped for weeks in the wilderness, trekked through tundra, stood below towering peaks, and witnessed the most incredible wildlife. I will always remember this crazy section of the @drinkevolve National Park's Road Trip ✨

This image was captured a couple of days back on a flight seeing tour with @talkeetnaair. It was breathtaking to witness Denali National Park from the air ✈️

Rode on our bikes for 2 days just to see this waterfall. Was definitely worth it.

As a photographer I wanted to figure out a way to convey in photos what it's like to truly experience a total solar eclipse. You see pictures everywhere of close up images of the sun and the corona but it's still hard to explain what it's like in person. The first image is 100 percent coverage during totality. If you swipe left you will see what that exact spot was like 5 seconds prior to the totality. That HUGE amount of light in the second picture is only 99.9 percent of what the sun puts out. The two side by side just seconds apart really put into perspective what it was like today in Oregon for a wonderful 2 minutes today. Honestly probably the most amazing thing I have ever seen in the sky.

Sometimes we search high and low for answers that are right in front of us. Take this spot in Johnson Canyon for example, one of the most famous Instagram spots likely out there. On our last day in Banff, we decided to make the visit. None of us knew where it was nor did we really look into it; after all, there's so many pictures of it online you'd imagine it's super easy to get to. Well, coming off a week of backpacking, our explorer senses were still tingling and we were looking all over the place for this thing. Climbing down sketchy embankments, attempting log crossings, wondering how deep the water is to attempt to ford it. All the while, completely perplexed how we couldn't find this spot. Ready to give up because we drank all of our remaining Caribou Crossing Whiskey at one of the many embankments we went down, we decided to give it a little longer. Next thing you know, we came up on a line of people breaking from the trail and making their way down to the shore; sure enough, we found the acorn looking rock in the most obvious of places.

Everywhere I looked there was waterfalls cascading down from the sky. Easy to see why this is the wettest place on earth. by @jasoncharleshill 🌏 #folkgreen

I honestly can't remember exactly where this was taken, but I've always loved the curves and lines, and of course, the textures. The American southwest is seriously a treasure trove for landscape lovers.

Canyonlands might be my new favorite national park. Canyons within canyons.. and no crowdsπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ [πŸ“·: @zakarychase]

It's officially chill week (officially defined by me). You don't have to travel all the way to the Dead Sea to read a newspaper floating on water. Mono Lake in Yosemite's backyard does just fine and it's a ton of fun.

An empty campground, a beautiful view, Oregon couldn't be any better!

Spent the last week on an unreal camping trip around southern Oregon and Northern California.

A beautiful adventure in @rockynps with rushing waterfalls, snow capped mountains, and dirt paths for days! #findyourpark #goparks #rockymountainnationalpark

Only FOUR days until our #MightyFive eBook is available! Here are some details:
1. It is 75 full-color pages
2. It reads much more like a how-to book than a general travel book. Heavy on the information, light on the pictures.
3. It includes General park highlights (which you can find anywhere) but also 5-6 of our own secrets per park
4. It will be very affordable! We want these in your hands so you can get out to the parks and start using them!
5. There are more coming! Besides our "big book" about the 59 parks, we want to dive deeper into groups of parks like the Mighty Five. Look for How to Visit Alaska's National Parks next!

There ain't no formula to success. IT'S. JUST. HARD. WORK. Even lotteries are won from hard earned wages. Even dreams are dreamt from tired minds.

@instagram needs an Ansel Adams filter

Meet Ranger Brian! He is a Biological Science Technician at Sandy Hook. He helps to take care of rare and endangered plants and animals. Today, he is surveying rare plants.
Sea Beach Amaranth is a Federally Threatened and a New Jersey State endangered plant. So far this year we have counted 6,400 individual plants in the park with more still to be counted. The plant population is growing in the park but Sandy Hook has the highest population on the Jersey Shore. By staying out of closed areas we can help protect this rare plant
