yesterday's escape from the smoky Davis to the substantially less smoky Union Valley Reservoir. Great little trail system and only saw a handful of people the entire day (almost all rangers/woodcutters) • • • • • #reflection #lake #water #mirror #hiking #outdoors #irox_water #ignaturale #ic_water #onda #natur #oceano #ripples #ripple #hike #mirrorselfie #reflections #forest #trees #hikingadventures #reflectiongram #reflection_shotz #reflection_perfection #igcentric_nature #rei1440project #unionvalleyreservoir #sierras #blueskies at Union Valley Reservoir

Hiking up Pyramid Peak Trail in the Desolation Wilderness, CA! Although "trail" is perhaps a bit inappropriate for this last third mile, which featured an unmarked scramble up some boulders of varying (1-10ft diameter) size. Snapped this shot before it got too steep and I fully lost the use of my hands carrying the pup (and my camera) to protect his delicate footsies from poky granite and lichen. • • • • • • #sonya6000 #sonyalpha6000 #a6000 #sonyphotogallery #naturelove #hikingadventures #mountainsarecalling #visitcalifornia #getoutside #naturegram #norcal #instanature #rei1440project #mountainlife #thegreatoutdoors #hikecalifornia #hikingtheglobe #earthfocus #instagood10k #theglobewanderer #thevisualcollective #artofvisuals #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #landscapelovers #ourplanetdaily #naturediversity #discoverglobe #venturesociety #northerncalifornia at Pyramid Peak

Aesthetically I've long enjoyed the juxtaposition of natural and artificial elements. Usually this takes the form of hydroelectric dams but here it's a few cables running through the Sedona countryside. On past hikes I've always liked coming upon these, especially after days with barely a road crossing -- not only to break the monotony and provide a view on otherwise heavily forested trails, but also to indicate that the comforts of civilization are not far away. Though they do sometimes make a scary buzzing noise. • • • • • • • • #hikeaz #sonya6000 #arizonasky #sonyalpha6000 #a6000 #hikearizona #arizona_landscapes #az365 #arizonacollective #explorearizona #visitarizona #azhiking #instagramaz #azgrammers #igsouthwest #adventureculture #nature_wizards #ig_thisworld #theglobewanderer #wildernessculture #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #awesome_earthpics #ourplanetdaily #neverstopexploring #earthfocus #landscapelovers #hikingtheglobe #sedona at Sedona, Arizona

Congratulations to the wonderful @katevetrgates on the completion of her PhD! 4 years, 2 states, 5 (first author) papers, 130° F of temperature variation, over 10,000 miles walked, international adventures, cross-country road trips, 100s of reps of >2x BW deadlift, thousands of pullups, a hundred podcasts, a dozen paintings, several successfully DMed DnD/CoC campaigns, and lots of conference presentations and you've made it to the end! Only to be continuing veterinary school this coming Monday. No rest for the wicked, but I have every confidence you'll excel these next years as you have the last! • • • • • #phd #vetlife #veterinary #vetmed #italiangreyhound #dualdegree #vet #ucdavis #iggy #veterinarymedicine #phdlife #vetschool #vetstudent #davisca #italiangreyhoundsofinstagram #イタリアングレーハウンド #davis #vetsnobiety #galgoitaliano #biology #immunology #ourucdavis #womeninscience #transplantimmunology #AggiePride #UniversityofCalifornia #DiscoveringCuriosity #WomenInSTEM #DVMPhD #powerlifting at Davis, California

a Great Blue Heron perched on some driftwood and silhouetted against the evening twilight on Vancouver's Acadia Beach. Walking along the Foreshore Trail we'd see one of these fellas majestically gazing out every ~100ft. The trail itself was quite lovely, too! • • • • • #birdsofinstagram #wildlifephotography #birdwatching #birdstagram #birdphotography #birding #instabird #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #wildlife_perfection #instabirds #wildlife_seekers #wildlifeplanet #nuts_about_birds #birdlover #birdfreaks #feather_perfection #allmightybirds #heron #animalsofinstagram #natgeowild #wildlifeplanet #naturephotoportal #aov5k #buzzfeedanimals #visualsoflife #vancouverisawesome #beautifulbc #igersvancouver #vancouverbc at Vancouver, British Columbia

@katevetrgates and the pup hiking alongside Eagle Creek in the Columbia River Gorge from a while back. Shame the area's been razed by fire this past month, but at least there haven't been any reported human casualties. And give the gorge a few hundred years: it'll be good as new! • • • • • #womenwhohike #wildernessbabes #outdoorwomen #radgirlslife #sheexplores #werehikers #sheadventures #girlswhohike #wearethewild #nature_wizards #ourplanetdaily #instanature #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #venturesociety #earthfocus #landscapelovers #columbiarivergorge #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #thatpnwlife #pacificnorthwest #pnwcollective #northwestisbest #exploreoregon #pnwlife #traveloregon #oregonexplored #bestoforegon #thenwadventure at Eagle Creek, Oregon
