This place blew our minds last winter. A giant ice castle, entirely man made and built so beautifully that it looks like something straight out of a Disney movie set. This was the place that we kicked off our winter adventure into the Canadian Rockies and it only got even more epic from there 🔥@travelalberta #explorealberta at Hawrelak Park


The pacific north west dream... a cute a-frame, beautiful weather and a hot tub surrounded by forest. Never a bad time to visit @tyehaus and their sister properties next door ❤️ If you could pick one person to spend a weekend here with, ANYONE, who would it be and why? I bet you guys have some great answer! at Pacific Northwest


Now that the snow has set in here in Washington, it’s fun to look back on another awesome summer. We managed to get out for quite a few backpacking trips, and this one here was a highlight for sure. With that being said, I love winter and can’t wait to get out for some more snowy adventures. Hope you guys are all planning to do the same and take advantage of that beautiful white stuff ☺️ at Washington


We have some huge and exciting news to share - @reneeroaming and I are coming out with a coffee table book!! 🕺🏻 For those of you that are new here, last year my wife and I visited all 59 US National Parks. The trip took us 25,000+ across 39 states and 2 US territories. This book (Roaming America) will feature hundreds of images from the trip, but will also include useful information about each park, stories from the road, tips, tricks and all the good stuff. This trip changed our lives, and we can’t wait to share the journey with you all in this new format. Unfortunately, it will not be available until next spring/summer, but we will be sharing some of the creative journey and process of creating the book with you on our stories, so keep an eye out if you are interested! Lastly, a huge thank you to all of you guys! It is your support that has allowed us to make this happen, and I hope we can pay you back with something you will truly love. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to send me a DM. I do my best to get back to everyone. at Yosemite National Park


Renee and I first visited Moraine Lake about 6-7 years ago now. I remember waking up early at the lodge, walking across the empty parking lot and standing atop the rock pile (moraine, hence the name) all by myself for an entire sunset. These days, at sunrise, you are now sharing the experience with 100 other people (no, I’m not exaggerating). It’s wild the impact that social media has had on these places. Please, treat them with respect. They were here well before you, and assuming we look after them they will be here long after we are gone. If you are going to a new area that you are unfamiliar with, look up local laws/rules and make sure you understand them. The last thing you want is to end up being blasted by a bunch of keyboard warriors (and potentially face fines) for doing something silly that you didn’t realize wasn’t the right thing to do. at Moraine Lake


Still making my way through photos from our trip to the east coast this fall. We expected it to be beautiful, but it far exceeded our expectations. This little farm in Vermont is the perfect fall hideaway (if it weren’t for the hoard of tourists at your gate daily lol). I’m interested, what is a destination you have visited that far exceeded your expectations? Looking for some rad places to visit next year. at Vermont


It’s pretty much a necessity for us to pop by this lake every time we’re up in the Canadian Rockies. These kinds of scenes are the reason I fell in love with that part of the world and will return again and again. #earthfocus #wildernessculture #mountaingirls #banff at Peyto Lake


Renee and I recently had the pleasure of being invited back to the @tyehaus younger brother - Sky Haus. We first stayed at both the Tye and Sky Haus this winter and fell in love. These beautiful cabins capture that perfect cozy feeling that I imagine from a cabin amongst the PNW mountains. Luckily, they are rented through Airbnb so anyone can experience it for themselves! at Tye Haus - A-Frame Cabin


Still haven’t gotten around to posting this image from Mount Rainier that has some of the most insane conditions I’ve ever experienced. We got to the end of our hike and were surrounded by cloud. We were worried there wouldn’t be a good sunset and that we wouldn’t even see the mountain... but half an hour before sunset the clouds began to clear. They lit up an insane golden color and our jaws dropped. Something similar happened to us on a hike we did a couple of days ago as well. It’s a good reminder that the most insane conditions and photos can come from the unlikeliest of situations. @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #LiveYourAdventure at Mount Rainier


We found this incredible cabin while flying over New Hampshire in the peak of fall colors. What an absolute dream! Nestled in amongst the trees with your own little swimming hole for summer. Who wants to move in with me? I’m sure the current owners wouldn’t mind 😜 at New Hampshire


I still think about this morning every now and again. Sleeping up on a mountain at the border of the US and Canada, surrounded by beauty and silence. Blues turning to pinks, and back to blue and white. The world has a way of slowing down on trips like this, and they are always the perfect reset for the brain. Thankful to live in Washington where we have access to limitless adventures like these. at Washington


One of the many insane views from the air that we got while exploring New Hampshire. Does the shape of this lake remind you guys of anywhere? I’m going to randomly select 5 people who get it right in the comments to send a never been released wallpaper pack to. Just a small token of my appreciation for the constant support ❤️ I’ll DM winners a Dropbox link for the download. at New Hampshire
