Swabuchler's Landing, GTNP. This is regarded as perhaps one of the most famous photo taking areas in the park. We were among probably 100 other photographers this particular night.
Austin, Steve, and Nic at the base of Vernal Falls on the Mist Trail in Yosemite National Park. This trail connects to the famous 210 mile John Muir trail. John Muir, a conservationist and naturalist was crucial to the establishment of Yosemite
Jake in Pine Creek Canyon. Truly one of the most special places on our Earth. Canyoneering is one of the reasons Zion is the 6th Highest Visited park!

Great Sand Dunes National Park. Featuring the TALLEST sand dune in North America!
Kyle at Canyon overlook. One of the most popular hikes in Zion National Park. This .5 mile round trip hike has an almost unbeatable view of Zion Canyon
Small buck in Zion National Park. 78 species of mammals, 291 species of birds, 44 species of reptiles and amphibians, and 8 species of fish find their home in Utah's very own Zion National Park (NPS).
Brendan on the Narrows approach trail. The Narrows is easily Zion's most popular trail. On a summer day you can find hundreds of people cooling off and wading through the river up the canyon.
The Big Bend shuttle stop as seen from the Angel's Landing trail. The Zion Canyon shuttle runs from March to November every year, servicing millions. Possibly one of the best ideas for park transportation, the shuttle removes the need for all of the visitors to park their cars in the crowded canyon.

Canyon junction and the Virgin River, Zion National Park
The switchbacks of Zion. This road leads to the 1.1 mile Mt. Carmel tunnel, the only east west running road in Zion National Park
One of the Three Patriarchs, seen through two smaller peaks
One of the most commonly seen animals in Zion. The bighorn sheep in Zion were actually a transplant species and are now thriving in the park. You can see these guys most nights after 6:00 PM on the east side of the park.
Delicate Arch. Can you recognize this famous spot from Utah's license plate?
A very crowded day at the base of the El Capitan parking lot
Yosemite Falls. The highest waterfall in the United States!
Mitch at the base of a spring Vernal Falls. Yosemite received record snowfall in the 2016-2017 winter resulting in high flowing waterfalls.
Vernal Falls
Hunter gazing at Vernal Falls.
Road restoration in Yosemite. With year round visitors, just after the end of winter the road crews have a lot of work to do!

Myself in the Zion Narrows
Sunrays at a pristine Diablo Lake
The Teton Range
One of the many enormous peaks found in the North Cascades
Ash hiking on the trail to Dream Lake, Grand Teton National Park
Lone bison in Yellowstone National Park. Bison are one of the more commonly seen species in Yellowstone. Just last year, tourists put a bison into their car thinking that it was cold. Upon its discovery the park returned it to the herd, where it was rejected and unfortunately died.
Jace at Gibbon Falls, Yellowstone National Park
Gibbon Falls, Yellowstone National Park. It is easy to see what inspired people to make Yellowstone the country's first national park.
Austin overlooking the Yellowstone River
One of the many geysers in Yellowstone. People marveled at the discovery of Yellowstone largely because of the geothermal activity.
Ash at Mammoth Hot Springs
Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park
Lodge at Lake Crescent, Olympic National Park. Olympic is most famous for the fact that it contains three ecological regions in one park! Olympic National Park includes a tundra glacier climate, a rainforest climate, and an ocean climate.
Horseshoe Bend. One of the most staggeringly large places I have ever been fortunate enough to witness. Horseshoe Bend is found below the Glenn Canyon Dam of the Colorado River. Glenn Canyon Dam creates Lake Powell and by proxy Glenn Canyon National Recreation area.
Stillness of the Virgin River in Zion National Park
A doe snacking on the foliage of the Zion Canyon floor.
Kaden after the last rappel in Mystery Canyon. Mystery Canyon, although one of the most popular canyons in the park, allows 12 people through a day. The canyon permit system is a perfect example of how NPS is trying to restrict damage to fragile ecosystems.
Fun Fact: the last rappel of Mystery Canyon in Zion is known as "the hero rappel" among locals. It's famous because it drops right into the Narrows. You can often find a crowd of people at the base of the last waterfall in Mystery watching canyoneers finish their descent.
Perhaps one of the most iconic views in Zion. The Watchman. The Watchman is one of many sandstone peaks in Zion and the namesake of one of the only campgrounds in the park.
