The 4th stop on our 4982.5 mile epic journey deserves two posts as it represents the point where we were the farthest from our house in Austin. It also is the reason we took the trip. We were originally inspired to visit Acadia National Park, and that simple idea turned into a gargantuan road trip across America. Acadia National Park is almost wholly located on Mount Desert Island in Maine with a small piece located on the mainland called the Schoodic Peninsula. It consists of just under 50,000 acres and is made up of coastal mountains crashing into the Atlantic. The mountains are deceptively steep in places and surprisingly bare on top. The granite crags make their way to the ocean and end in a spectacular, rocky coastline that is ripe for exploration. The fam, led by fitness mommy @outerpeacefitness conquered 4 mountains including Acadia Mtn, Champlain Mtn, Cadillac Mtn and the South Bubble. We hiked the wonderland trail and the Jordan Pond loop. We watched the sunset from the top of Cadillac, discovered a hidden rocky beach, ate lots of lobster, explored tide pools, took a carriage ride on one of the carriage roads built by the Rockefellers, drove the park loop, conquered some near vertical trails with lots of exposure (unsettling with young kids), ate MDI ice cream twice because it was so good, got invited to a lobster bake in an old farmhouse with complete strangers which was incredible, had popovers at Jordon house, went on a journey with Diver Ed, swam in Lakewood and stayed in a tiny Airbnb cottage in the woods. #acadianationalpark #publiclands #publicland #nationalpark #nationalparks #mountdesertisland #airbnb #barharbor #thurstonslobsterpound #mountdesertislandicecream #ford #fordf150 #f150 #divered #outerpeacefitness #chacos

I’m very thankful for my adventure life and I work hard to maintain it. Seeing some of the most revered places in the American West over the past five years has been truly life changing, leading to my move to Colorado in 2016. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of visiting Colorado’s four national parks, some several times. It’s hard to put into words the feeling of immersing yourself in such incredible surroundings, which is probably why I picked up photography in the first place. Life throws up so many challenges but there are few other places I’d choose to endure them 🙏

Grand Canyon highlights #1: spontaneously picking up a local guide as a hiking partner for the descent into the basement rocks who was able to give me the DL since I went down before hitting the museum. suffice it to say he will have no interest in talking rock again in the near future, and probably got freaked out by the tenderness with which I looked at the stunning emerald Vishnu schist.... #geologistproblems #grandcanyon #geology #backpacker #publiclands #nationalpark #hiking #girlswhohike #traveller #sheexplores #solotravel #forceofnature

Spent the day in Sisters Wilderness area stomping around lakes, gawking at the lava flows, and dropping off an old friend at a trailhead on the #PCT.

It’s been quite a few years since spending a substantial amount of time in Boulder but my last day and a half here certainly has not disappointed. I have been reminded of what a gem this place is. From the food options to the beer to the views, anyone making the trip to Denver is strongly encouraged to spend some time in Boulder. Boulder offers a wonderful balance of nature and civilization. Whether it’s bike riding, hiking, or tubing down the creek, Boulder is a great place to get out and explore. .

Those moments in between the chaos of four kids when I get to grab my fly rod and practice my cast. It’s a practice that is so calming. 🎣
It takes concentration to find my rhythm, to anticipate where the fish is and to be aware of my surroundings. I love my fly rod because it’s all about the feel, gliding the line through the water, changing your retrieve and the thrill of the tug. 💕
I’ve only been fly fishing for 6 weeks but it is absolutely my favourite thing and has caused me to fall back in love with the water and demanding that this mama gets time to fish too! 😍
This beautiful bass was caught as the sunset with my four kids excitedly watched from shore and my wonderful husband behind my camera. ☀️💕 I am truly so blessed to have such extraordinary adventures with them. We learn together, face challenges, overcome obstacles and grow as a family! Can not wait to see where our fly rods take us.💕 #momlife #momoffour #publiclands #lakeofbays #canadianadventure #discoverontario #muskoka #exploreontario #explorersedge #explore #flyfishing #flyangler #bassfishing #girlsfishtoo #momswhofish #ontariomoms #ontario_adventures #ontariofishing #familyadventures #whatgetsyououtdoors #alifeoutdoors #onthefly #learningtoflyfish #womenflyfishers #ontarioanglers #kidswhofish #kayakfishing #kayaking #camping #flyfishingadventures

A fire burned on the horizon as I headed away from Long Lake and started the climb to New Army Pass. The wild gusts that blew all day yesterday had died with last night's sunset, and I slept like a baby.
The climb up to NAP, was mostly free of snow except for a cornice overhanging the last switchback. I followed boot pack straight up to the top of the pass at 12,300 ft. Mt. Langley at 14,026 ft. was prominent in the middle ground, and a feight path eched it's way across an open granite bowl to the summit. The sky was blue, and I could see down to Owen's Valley 10,000 feet below.
Standing on top of Mount Langley, I looked over to Mount Whitney and the rest of the Sierra. It's hard to believe that a year ago today, I entered the Sierra for the first time on the #pct. I was happy to be back for my second time since finishing the trail.

If any one thing can define a National Park, it’s the rocky shoreline of Acadia National Park. Everywhere you look, you see beautifully colorful Granite. The fractures on them created by the forces of nature makes you feel like you’ve stepped on an other worldly planet! Acadia rocks!! .

Today, @USInterior Secretary Ryan Zinke is visiting California to talk about destroying the San Francisco Bay Delta. We hope he also plans to address the rest of the damage he’s doing to CA deserts, oceans, wildlife, national monuments & #publiclands. Tag your friends if you agree. #ProtectPublicLands

Walking composition. Got to know my own backyard better today thanks to the gift of an old-ish friend, a new-ish friend, a brand-new friend, and the miraculous beauty of this place. These lands are such a treasure for the human species. #walkinglife #keepitpublic #keepitpublicmt #getoutside #publiclands

All over the world, including the U.S., animals that were deliberately bred into existence for exploitation and slaughter are being "culled" earlier than scheduled. This is because #drought makes the wildly disproportionate resource inputs of animal farming even more of a wasteful extravagance, to the point of impossibility.
***
Each steer, cow, etc. has the daily caloric and #water requirements of several human beings. Between the water used to irrigate their feed or pasture, drinking water, and sanitation water (including cleaning up the bloody mess after slaughtering them), "beef" production is one of the most water-intensive undertakings on the planet. It also uses nearly 60% of the world’s agricultural land but only accounts for less than 2% of calories and 5% of protein consumed worldwide (Union of Concerned Scientists). Additionally, #cattle #ranching is the #1 driver of Amazon #deforestation and a top driver of #climatechange, among many other worsening environmental catastrophes.

The general lack of scrutiny over why on Earth we continue to dedicate precious #publiclands and pour #subsidies and scarce resources into breeding, feeding, watering, and slaughtering bovines for a luxury food, one inexplicably treated as a staple in the West, is astounding.
***
That's not to say it's "better" to exploit any other species. #AnimalAgriculture is a reduction industry, no matter the animal, in that it dramatically reduces resources like land, crops, and water to cause artificial scarcity, and it entails deliberate exploitation and #slaughter, reducing individuals to commodities. Please opt out of animal exploitation as far as is practical and possible by embracing a #vegan ethic for the planet, and the inherent moral worth, we all share.

“23 August,
Forest fires burned in the north. I ate dinner watching the sun set in the east. Before the smoke rolled in I could see rows of mountain foothills marching off, each one losing a bit of saturation with the distance, growing more dim until they were lost in the blue gray haze of the horizon. The smoke begin to come, first filling channels and then obscuring the finer details of the view. The sun shone neon orange through this hazy filter, sinking eventually to darkness with a few final wavering lines, an orange-red stratigraphy of fire.”

I hunt for food! Hunting allows me to be an active participant in my food. It provides a connection, a thankfulness and a understanding that you simply can not get from buying your meat from a store. I understand and accept the very real events it takes to harvest, butcher and prepare my food. It is not always glamorous. It is not easy, taking a life is heavy business. However, this is real food. I would rather do it myself and know where what I serve my family came from. My ultimate goal is to eventually hunt and/or raise 100% of the meat my family uses. #hunter #hunterproud #huntergatherer #homebutchery #realfood #whyihunt #northernrootsoutdoors

yesterday the Natural History Museum of Utah (@nhmu) announced a newly discovered ankylosaurid dinosaur—Akainacephalus johnsoni. The fossil was found on BLM-managed lands in southern Utah and reveals new details about the diversity and evolution of this group of armored dinosaurs. The dinosaur is named after the dedicated museum volunteer who spent over a year preparing it for display. Check out our Insta Story today to learn more! Find out more about this discovery or read other great stories by following My Public Lands on Tumblr!

Thank you Rep. Erik Paulsen for taking time to meet today and talk about the importance of public lands and the role they play in preserving our heritage of hunting and fishing. Your statement on the House floor this week on the importance of public opinion and a science-based assessment of the impact sulfide-ore copper mining could have on an area like the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is truly appreciated and we look forward to you continuing to champion the virtues of conservation in America. That’s what Teddy Roosevelt would do! @reperikpaulsen #wwtrd @backcountryhunters @bha_mn @sportsmenbwca @pheasants_forever @mndeerhuntersassoc @thetrcp @ruffedgrousesociety @outdoor_news #keepitpublic #publiclands #publicwaters #bwca #bwcaw #hunting #fishing #cleanwater #itsallyours #publiclandowner #familytime #wilderness

Over the 4th of July I spent some time with friends at Kruzof Island in the Tongass National Forest and as always, had a amazing trip. On one of our ATV rides along the old logging roads we spotted this Sitka Blacktail Deer grazing in Iris Meadows. Recently, the Forest Service completed restoration work on some of the old roads, thinning some of the trees to open up views and improve wildlife habitat by allowing more sunlight to reach the forest floor. If it wasn't for that, we would never have seen this deer or had the chance to enjoy this moment!

Dolomites / Alta Via 4 - 4 - Knowing we were hiking up to one of Italy’s most beautiful lakes may have changed my stoke factor however, I could not have imagined the experience! We had nothing but blue skies, turquoise waters and happy hearts and it was as magical as the pictures and more!!

Here it is!!🤩 Collaborating with @cotopaxi and @americanalpine on the design of these packs was a labor of love, I can’t wait to share them at Ourdoor Retailer! I’ll be at the AAC’s Public Lands Happy Hour at the Cotopaxi booth from 4:30-6 Monday July 23. Come say hi and get one of a limited number of packs, while supporting the AAC’s ongoing conservation initiatives. This project pushed my artistic style and adaptability, and I’m so happy with the outcome. This pack was designed to celebrate the aesthetics of the red-rock desert, while continuing to bring visibility to the battle to protect public lands. 🏜️ #cragdoodles #publiclands #protectbearsears #rockclimbing #aacgram
