@elliothawkey just posted a question on his recent photo of how can we prevent these smoke filled summers for being the new norm...well for one follow the burn bans in your area/state..as beautiful as fires look and hell they might make your Instagram photo look more “folk” realize it takes one ember to start a forest fire..I’ve recently encountered unknown photographers having fires in both very odd places and dangerous areas where brush was inches away from where they were..stop and think “is this one gram photo worth thousand of acres of majestic land?” The answer should always be “Hell no!” this photo was taken last year right before the Columbia River Gorge was burned due to recklessness..as you can see the conditions haven’t changed and at this point in time there was still multiple forest fires being fought in similar areas..Be smarter, love this planet and keep exploring ..

This shot was taken on the side of a highway as I saw the sky open up after a day full of thunderstorms. The sky lit ablaze as the sun began to set in the misty valley
Let's have a short break from the Faroe Islands. Only a few days earlier I visited another impressive location that is as deadly as it is beautiful.
I'm currently drafting a post about Beachy Head but finding the correct words feels difficult. Are you familiar with the dark stories that echo on the white cliffs of Beachy Head in Southern England?
At nearly the tippy top end of Door County peninsula is Gills Rock Coffee. This place is not only a coffee shop but a dog park and an Air BnB... AND the magnificent owners reside here. Dewey runs the coffee shop and his lovely wife, Char, ran an art gallery for 25 years in what is now their home portion of the place. She and I had a long and lovely conversation over coffee while Moe played with their dog, Honey. She is a lovely, lovely being and I am so grateful that we spent time with her this morning. I bought a copy of her self published book My Baking Bloopers & Other Amusing Anecdotes to read on the road. Before we left, Dewey brought us a bag of delicious pastries to take with us since the coffee shop was closing for the day. If you're ever in Door County PLEASE stop in for a delicious coffee and give Char a great big hug for us! 💕☕💕
To think salmon will be making the journey up this river in the Fall is absolutely amazing. I honestly can't wait to come back, especially after hearing stories of bobcats waiting patiently near the water's edge for an afternoon catch. Maybe I will get lucky and catch a glimpse of the elusive black bear🙈
Lakside mountain views and brews beats a coffee shop any day

Posting this while sitting in on my first day of class, so I guess that’s a wrap on summer 👋 Even though traveling this summer was super fun I’m stoked to be back home in Salt Lake and to get back on the grind👌 Just counting down till I can be doing this again! 🤤

The highest peak in Iceland, 2110m.
Surrounded by the vast and often unpredictable glacial landscape of Öræfajökull, this area is often hidden in the clouds. Though occasionally the skies open up, revealing the ice covered summit from a ground level perspective.

La vie est dure, mais pas compliquée.
En résumé, la vie est belle. 💕

Look down at your hands. Wiggle your fingers.
You might not own much on this earth. You might feel hopeless or scared or small.
But your thumb print is yours alone.
You are an evolutionary wonder. A beautiful harmonic comprised of both cell and soul.
Everyday, if you let it, this can be enough.
