Progress is usually a good thing, but as with all things, it comes at a cost. In the case of economic progress, that cost is often increased pollution. There is growing awareness of the need for a more balanced approach. But until then, we can at least enjoy those vivid sunsets (as those extra particulates in the air scatter out more of the blues in light, leaving the reds, oranges, and yellows). . . .

Whether you’re traveling by yourself or in a group, don’t forget to stop and enjoy the view or the experience, instead of just rushing to get that shot. Something that all of us here might be guilty of every now and then! . .

Do you prefer the mountains or the ocean? . Apparently your answer reveals whether you have introvert (mountain) or extrovert (oceans) tendencies. It’s always been tough for me to pick, as I love both and I can’t imagine not being close to water but I also cherish the freedom of the mountains. Luckily I live in Tahoe, which has a bit of both! And I’ve been told I’m an extroverted introvert, which perhaps accounts for my affinity for both? 🤷‍♀️ . So, which do you prefer and does it accurately reflect whether you’re an introvert/extrovert? . .

Why do you travel? For me, a big part has always been about new experiences. And sometimes those new experiences challenge you. And push you beyond your boundaries. But sometimes things don’t go as planned, and you just want to give up.. . . For me, this sunset over Truk Lagoon will always remind me to never give up. If I had (when my regulator failed at 30 meters, while I was still a newbie and student diver), I might not be here today, or I might never go into water again, both of which I refused to accept. As someone who already had water issues from a near drowning as a kid, I still forced myself to go back into the water right afterwards, and learn to face my fears and try to conquer (or at least manage) them. Since then I have done over 100 dives. I still have some water issues, but I don’t let that stop me from exploring an absolutely amazing part of our world, one that I would never have experienced, if I had just given up. (Aug 2012) . Anyone else have any stories of when things didn’t go as planned but you pushed through and didn’t give up? I’d love to hear about it! . . #micronesia #modernoutdoors #sunset_vision #ig_color #igtones #moodygrams #agameoftones #createcommune #theworldshotz #jaw_dropping_shots #artofvisuals #heatercentral #earthfocus #ig_vision #splendid_earth #theimaged #shotzdelight #thevisualscollective #somewheremagazine #watchthisinstagood #neverstopexploring #stayandwander #awesomeearth #postcardplaces #awakethesoul #unknownperspectives #naturelovers #ourplanetdaily #travelawesome #tlpicks

I’ve been pretty sick this past week, which is why I haven’t posted anything recently. Still recovering, which means it’ll be a little while before I can get out there on any crazy new adventures. Which means it’s time to dig into the archives. I usually like to have a theme for these retrospectives, but I’m going to throw caution to the wind and just wing it this time! . This is one of my favourite photos from my trek in Nepal. It would have been taken fairly early on during the 2 week Manaslu Circuit trek. I can’t really even explain why. I didn’t stop to talk to this couple, but I’d like to think they were enjoying the beauty of their surroundings and I didn’t want to interrupt their quiet contemplation. What do you see in this? If it speaks to you in some way, I’d love to hear about it!

I know many people are looking forward to spring already, but it seems Mother Nature had other plans this morning. I just wish I could go out and enjoy the fresh snow instead of being stuck home sick. On the plus side, I got to see a pretty sunrise, something I rarely get to do! . . .

If you’re ever in Boise, stop by the Funky Taco and check out this amazing mural “HOME” by phenomenal artist @codyrutty. Pro tip: get up close and leave yourself enough time to truly appreciate the skill and artistry involved. This photo, which was taken outside the venue, doesn’t even come close to doing this piece justice. Thank you @codyrutty for allowing me to incorporate your masterpiece into my vision. . .
