Wild rainbow colored formations at the Colorado paint mines. Native American’s used this clay to make paint for their pottery. Isn’t it amazing what the Earth can produce? • ——————————————— | #colorado | #paintmines | #earthart ——————————————— Adventure Travel & Photography ——————————————— πŸ‘‰πŸΌ ExpertVagabond.com πŸ‘ˆπŸΌ

The landscape at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in Iceland is full of broken icebergs, streaked with blue, floating with the tide, occasionally breaking apart in a mighty crash. With its black-sand beaches, the lagoon feels other-worldly.  Check out my new blog post about Jökulsárlón that shares tips for visiting this magical place. ••••••••••••••••••••• βœ… LINK IN BIO βœ… ••••••••••••••••••••• #iceland #jokulsarlon

I’m back from the forest! 🌲  Spent a wonderful 10 days deep in Minnesota’s North Country, canoeing & camping the BWCA wilderness. I feel rejuvenated, re-charged, and ready to take on the world again.  Are you planning any nature adventures this summer? ••••••••••••••••••••• #bwca #minnesota
Our epic landing spot after a #grandcanyon flight with @maverickhelicopters from Las Vegas. Pretty nice view… what a way to start the morning! 🚁 ••••••••••••••••••••• #lasvegas #maverickhelicopters #partner
Fulfilling my "Top Gun" fantasy over the Nevada desert with @skycombatace! Biggest adrenaline rush I've ever had!  I’m up front, actually flying the plane, performing stunts like barrel-rolls and stalls. Soooo crazy! We hit 8 Gs at one point... and I blacked out. 😜 ••••••••••••••••••••• #lasvegas #partner #topgun #gopro @gopro
Exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. What a beautiful part of the country! We hiked a few trails, gazed at waterfalls, and pulled off the side of the road for views like this. ••••••••••••••••••••• @visitasheville #visitasheville #ashevillemagic #partner

British Columbia has some stunning natural landscapes! This is the rugged coastline around  #tofino. We took a boat out with @tofinoremote to visit some natural hot-springs, but also saw orca whales, bald eagles, and a black bear. Couldn’t ask for a better day... 😎 ••••••••••••••••••••• @canadabydesign  #canadabydesign #aboriginalbc
A big part of my @canadabydesign self-drive road trip was experiencing some of BC’s indigenous First Nations culture.  For 67 years the Canadian government tried to ban “potlatches”, a traditional way tribes met to self-govern themselves, celebrate, morn, and conduct business.  First Nations' cultural artifacts were confiscated and sold off to collectors during the ban. Only now are some of those pieces making it back to their homeland, displayed in local museums like U’mista Cultural Center. ••••••••••••••••••••• #canadabydesign @seawolfadventures  #aboriginalbc
Have I told you how much I love nature? 🌲 Just hugging some 800 year old trees in Cathedral Grove! Any other tree-huggers out there? ••••••••••••••••••••• @canadabydesign #canadabydesign #aboriginalbc
Whales! Humpback whales. We saw three of them with @seawolfadventures.  These guys are huge! They grow up to 79,000 lbs. Frequent visitors to the waters off Telegraph Cove, BC. πŸ‹ ••••••••••••••••••••• @canadabydesign  #canadabydesign #aboriginalbc
