Did you know that 100 years ago coyotes were rarely seen on the east side of the Mississippi? Within the last few decades, these animals have made their way all across the United States and Canada. With the United States expanding and removing predators from our landscapes like wolves, population booms in animals such as foxes, coyotes, and deer were seen. These animals adopted easily to migrating through our countryside and cities. In fact, it's speculated that the coyotes that risk moving into cities are more daring and intelligent - meaning our development is in fact leading to their evolution as they adapt to our modern society. There are biologists reporting that coyotes will cross interstates by finding their way into the median then waiting several minutes sitting until a break appears. We love listening to our biologist and ecologist friends and learning more about our wildlife. Our world is ever shifting and with the level of development our country is seeing, it's up to us to responsibly understand and manage these species! Awesome photo by Caleb Woods

Rivers, lakes, glaciers and sun beams over rugged mountains, this morning had it all. Some days stay crystal clear in the minds eye. A memory that just won’t seem to fade. We arrived at the spot for the first nights camp well after dark, making the scale of the mountains around us a surprise for the next morning. I was the first one up (shocker) and got to be the first to lay eyes on this natural masterpiece. Enjoyment of something like this is meant to be shared, so yelling and tent kicking followed quickly and I was not alone in my awe for long. There couldn’t have been a better welcome to the wildness of the Tien Shan mountains. • • • • #mountainworld #hikevibes #hikingtheworld #choosemountains #mountaingram #findyouradventure #optoutdoors #takemebackpacking #alwaysgo #campsites #tentview #wildvisuals #earth_focus #earthscope #camping⛺️ #hikeon #glacierlagoon #glaciers #dronevideos #droneworld #igaerial #dronenature #mavicpro #roamtheplanet #roamanywhere #roamtocreate #kyrgyzstan #kyrgyzstan🇰🇬 #centralasia #intrepidtravel

If you saw my post from Monday, now this is the other side of Roostercomb Mtn. Seriously, a 4x5 frame does this picture no justice at all compared to the full landscape. I'll post the full picture on my stories. It has been an incredible fall, however I am a little upset I wasn't able to explore my own neck of the woods more. The rain and wind storm didn't help, but from what I saw..it's incredible to witness fall at it's full beauty. • • I'm trying to make a short trip pretty soon to experiment for the cool and moody tones this year. NORTH CAROLINA, you are on my radar. I said I was going to, but never made it happen unfortunately. Really looking for some great mountain layer shots, waterfalls of course, and whatever other options along the way, so if you're interested, let's plan something!!

We did the Bassin trail at the Emerald Lake. The top of the trail brings you at the edge of amazing mountains and glacier. Once again, we were almost alone up there. People only come to take pictures of the Lake. The max they do is to walk around the lake, but very few take the time to hike up the Bassin trail. ...But those who do gets rewarded by this amazing view! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @Canada @Stayandwander @nationalparkservice @banff_lakelouise @whererockies @the_canadian_rockies @alberta_parks @visit.banff @canada_pic @explorecanada @imagesofcanada #hikingviews #travelbloger #travelwithlove #travelpicsdaily #adventuretraveler #peacefullplace #canadianrockies #keepnaturewild #choosemountains #optoutdoors #travelcanada #discovercanada @emeraldlakelodge #hikemore #hiddengem @crmresorts #emeraldlake #seizetherockies #landscapephotography #rockies #yohonationalpark @hikingculture @hikingstation @alltrails #hikingtrip #hikinglife #hikinggirl #hikingadventure #hikingtrails #hikingday #hikingtrail #hikingworldwide #hikingislife #alltrails #OptOutside

Taking a photo with even a remotely serious face is sooo hard for me... if you are wondering why I’m always smiling in my photos it’s because I’m laughing at myself the whole time 🤦🏼‍♀️ just out of curiosity, which one do you like better: photo one, two, or three? (Ps massive thanks to @monascherie for this photo set!!)

Instead of pricing out rental tables, chairs, linens, flatware- imagine spending your wedding planning time perusing a curated list of epic locations to explore. Imagine how much more exciting and fun wedding planning can be if it was more like planning a vacation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Scouting amazing locations is a huge part of what you get when you choose to hire me. I love matching a couple's interests and unique sense of adventure to the place where they will exchange vows.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A great location can bring so much fun and wonder to an already wonderful day. Would you love to surf down rolling dunes after saying "I do" or does a sunset boat ride up the coast while sipping your signature wedding day cocktail sound more your style? Whether you want to whale-watch, stargaze, or any adventure in between, I'm here to do the heavy lifting while you and your partner enjoy the ride.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🐋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🐋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🐋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #freeyourwedding #coloradoweddingphotographer #mountainwedding #adventureelopement #intimatewedding #destinationwedding #destinationweddingphotographer #coloradoweddingvenue #explorecolorado #climbon⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #justelope #coloradohikes #wildwest #pushyourself #adventureseekers #exploremore #getoutside #themountainsarecalling #optoutside #oregonexplored #adventurebrides #Wildwomen #outdoorwomen #allwomenalltrails #choosemountains #Findyourpark #oregondunes #travelbug #oregonelopement #washingtonwedding

In our world, every mountain can be your mountain with the right equipment. We designed our snowshoes to float over the terrain, so any obstacles in your path become mere landmarks on your way to the top. Not sure where to start finding a pair of snowshoes or looking to upgrade this season? We're happy to help! Send us a DM or visit our website at the link in our bio for more info!

It’s been a weird week. In addition to work being crazy, I got headbutted by a random dog (and gifted with a fat lip), then I dropped not one, but two beer bottles at a liquor store, cut my finger open, and bled all over the cashier’s hand 😂 Basically I’m a hot mess. So shout out to all the people who tell me it’s okay that I forget to brush my teeth, have stains on my pants, and routinely miss deodorant on one pit. Thanks for accepting the forever wind-blown, unfashionable, clumsily awkward and little bit grumpy person that I am. You all know it’s basically like being an unpaid volunteer and I love you for that. Now my gift to you is Kita’s face in this photo. Scroll for full effect. 🥴

Meant to post this ages ago. After the relative flatness of #RunTheDiff and @palmamarathon, it's back to the hills for the @beaconsultramarathon marathon training. On Monday I reccied the section from Torpantau up the Gap Road & Pen Y Fan & Cribyn, am glad I did, it's a tough track up the Gap. It's hard enough going down because it's so stony so up is obvs tougher. Weather was dry but it could be raining/snowing on the day, concentration is required either way on your feet, it's so easy to trip up. Wednesday did the first section over #TorYFoel to the Taff Trail. Tor Y Foel is a beast of a hill but well chuffed I smashed my previous climb time up it. I think I'm meant to go up mountains, it's hard to put into words the difference I feel from flat running to fast-hiking and running on hills.

On traveling alone: people often ask me who I was on a road trip with. When I told them just myself they would often stare at me in disbelief or exclaim how surprised they were. I kept wondering if this was because I’m a woman, despite them sometimes saying it wasn’t. I have a lot of experience traveling, hiking, and camping by myself and once I have an idea I’m gonna do it no matter what even if I don’t have anyone to go with. Also, sometimes I just prefer traveling on my own because I get to make all my own decisions and follow every crazy whim. I just try to be smart and follow my instincts, which includes saying no to things that don’t feel safe. I will still challenge myself though, like hiking up this snowy and foggy mountain after just learning how to use bear spray. Did you know that it’s hard to distinguish a figure way out in the fog as a human or a grizzly??📍Crow and Cheyenne land

Casual 6am dip in a glacial lake💧This was no joke, the lake is frozen for most of the year and was one of the coldest waters I’ve felt - just off to the left of this photo is a small glacier that is right on the waters edge. I love this national park because there are so many trails to explore, and the sunrises are out of this world💫 Photo taken by @angelaliggs
