According to the ranger, Aztec Ruins has the only fully restored kiva in the world. These ruins are not actually Aztec, and I think I remember hearing that the way they were excavated back in the day is now considered to be poor technique. Apparently they tampered with the ruins too much (hence, the restored kiva). But I still think this place is super cool to explore! #picyourparkcontest #nationalparkgeek #nps #findyourpark #teacheronvacation #newmexico #vagabondforbeauty

A smoky sunset at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. I was surprised to see the Serviceberry already showing it’s fall foliage a good month early. This wildfire smoke has got to give!!!! But from all reports it is going to be with us until the snow flies or the monsoons actually start. It was so dusty dry at the Black Canyon that even the scrub oaks were turning brown. #vagabondforbeauty #sunset #sunset_vision #unlimitedsunset #sunset_stream #blessed🙏 #blackcanyonofthegunnisonnationalpark #canon5dsr #canon #canon_photos #canonusa #andcolorado #wildandco #coloradoboy #colorado #coloradoshared #outtherecolorado #natural_colorado #splendid_view #viewsfromcolorado #nationalparks #mountainworld #usinterior #longexposure_shots #longexposure #apg #westbysouthwest #reallyrightstuff

Those fields of Mount Rainier - spending the afternoon organizing old originals and taking inventory on prints cause I’ll be restocking next week when I’m in New Orleans. If there’s something you want a print of let me know!

Met a Frenchman early in the day on the first Munro, has tae be the happiest most enthusiastic person ave met for ages. Said his tent was pitched further intae the valley, has been wandering about all over Scotland, jumped off a train and in here, was heading thru to Torridon, to dae the Munros there, then further North to enter the Fisherfield, said he had walked all over Ireland and Wales, and had been coming to Scotland for years just backpacking n living on the hoof...Some lad like, a was impressed ☝🏻 #munros #munrobagging #wildcamping #tentsatjontyangles #views #vagabondforbeauty #onthehoof #coulinforrest #beinnliathmhor #sgorrruadh #coiregrannda #lochan #whataspot #torridon

I decided to treat myself to a birthday hike. Started off getting poured on but turned into a beautiful perfect, lovely day. .

Little River Canyon National Preserve in Alabama #picyourparkcontest #nps #findyourpark #vagabondforbeauty

Living the dream high in the San Juans. This peaceful high mountain cirque was loaded with pica’s and marmot’s when @kanegallery and I were camped there this last weekend. The only reason I mention this is there has been a significant collapse in the pica population in particular. Anymore it is rare to even see a pica when they used to be so prevalent in the rocks in the high country. As a result, it was great to hear their whistle and see them scampering about! I’ve heard a couple reasons given for their decline: 1) Climate change creates an earlier spring and thus less food source when they emerge (pica’s don’t hibernate) in the spring and 2) human encroachment. This high alpine cirque is infrequently visited hence #2 may indeed be what’s causing their decline! #picas #canon5dsr #canon #canonusa #canon_photos #sanjuanmountains #silvertoncolorado #silverton #sunrise #reallyrightstuff #bigagnestent #colorado #sunrise #apg #blessed #vagabondforbeauty #godisgood #westbysouthwest #andcolorado #coloradoboy #wildandco #coloradoview #coloradoshared #lovely_colorado #livingthedream

This is the year of the Fireweed! With most of the alpine wildflowers now spent, the Fireweed is coming on strong and in larger than usual fields. @kanegallery and I spent a rainy/pure sunshine weekend at this serene alpine pond. We’re blessed to live here and have opportunities like this so close!!! #canon_photos #canonusa #godisgood #canon5dsr #silverton #silvertoncolorado #visitsilverton #apg #sanjuanmountains #sunrise #colorado #coloradoboy #wildandco #coloradoview #coloradoshared #outtherecolorado #viewfromcolorado #andcolorado #natural_colorado #splendid_mountains #splendid_view #westbysouthwest #special_shots #fireweed #blessed🙏 #vagabondforbeauty

I can’t hold these in much longer, it’s truly been a beautiful experience making these, a therapy, a journey. Not ready to sell until the collection is complete. I think there is something for having a group of related things live together for a pass of time, they make each other a little stronger. So until then, this piece in celebration of the moon and mountains and water. Perfect for this week’s full moon. .

While Instagram is lousy for panos, I think you can get an idea from this shot what Ridgway’s sunset looked like last evening. The verga, the small rainbow and the light on the Cimarron’s made for a special sunset over our peaceful valley. Actually the sunset last evening over Pleasant Valley was epic but I didn’t have time to haul my camera up the hill and then get set up in time. Chasing light... #canon_photos #canonusa #canon5dsr #ridgwaycolorado #ridgway #loveridgway #colorado #coloradoboy #wildandco #andcolorado #chasinglight #outtherecolorado #coloradoshared #coloradoview #sunset #sunset_stream #sunset_vision #sunset_ig #blessed🙏 #godisgood #vagabondforbeauty #cimmaronmountains #peacefulvalley #westbysouthwest

Last evening sunset over Whitehouse and Potosi. Of course we’re missing the snowfields on the northern aspects of the Sneffels Range common this time of year. #canon_photos #canonusa #canon5dsr #apg #potosi #whitehouse #sneffelsrange #ridgway #loveridgway #wildandco #colorado #coloradoboy #coloradoview #andcolorado #blessed🙏 #outtherecolorado #reallyrightstuff #rrs #getoutdoors #godisgood #vagabondforbeauty

Lavender festival was pretty legit.. sunny Sequim is always a good day trip with my favorite people.. #washington #pnw #northwestisbest #upperleftusa #lavenderfestival #roadtrip #wanderlust #vagabondforbeauty

When I picked a random spot on the map to visit, I was not expecting such a spectacular sight!! #raymondskillfalls #picyourparkcontest #delawaregap #findyourpark #nps #nationalparkgeek #vagabondforbeauty

Summer wildflowers are the best! Because it’s been so epic dry, we need to go high (>12,000 ft) to get decent wildflowers. Add a few rain clouds and you have all the ingredients to a beautiful day in the San Juans. #colorado #coloradoboy #wildandco #andcolorado #natural_colorado #viewsfromcolorado #outtherecolorado #splendid_mountains #mountainworld #westbysouthwest #redmountains #sanjuanmountains #wildflowers #blessed🙏 #vagabondforbeauty #loveridgway #love_colorado
