I just returned from a trip to Jackson Hole with @springhillsuites. It’s no secret that I LOVE the Tetons, so it was really fun getting to explore the surrounding areas a little more this time. We snowmobiled, hit the slopes, took a wildlife tour, warmed up in the hot tub, and sampled some delicious local food. I’m counting down the days until my next trip back to this magical place ❄️ #sponsored
These bull elk were practically posing for me on our last morning in Jackson Hole. Share your favorite wildlife experience in the comments below 👇🏼
🚌🌲Home is where you park it & then need a jump start to drive anywhere else 😁
In the Instagram world we live in, stumbling upon places without having seen them plastered over our feeds first is becoming more and more rare. That's why this place will always be one of my favourite places in NZ. Spotted from the summit of Ruapehu, located on a map and then timed perfectly after the biggest storm of the season to catch it in perfect conditions like this. Good times @_southernthread @jeremyhooper
Masih penasaran gimana cara bikin bubble2an ala video2 di IG. Awal ngeliat sih koq kayanya gampang banget.
Pas nyobain... udah semangat 45 goyangin tangan kanan kiri buat bikin gelembung banyak, tapi yang jadi cuman sebiji doank. Yang laen? Meletus tus tus. Untung aja ga bikin hati jadi kacau ya... #eaaa 😛
Wonderfully crisp colours on our way up Mt. Snowdon at sunrise in Wales - we elected for the more difficult Watkin Path, and put in a good show for team Canada 🇨🇦 on the 1085m ascent by completing the wintery mountaineering route in swim shorts and runners. Balmy Snowdonia weather. 😏 #cramponsoptional#nopantsdance#upnup#leftmypantsincanada
I know I’ve been MIA lately. It’s been for a good reason. I’ve been trying to unplug from social media (for some people it doesn’t affect them but it can be SUPER toxic for me). When my dad came down to visit me for thanksgiving, we talked about my life and my struggles and he challenged me to love Ryan more than I’ve ever loved him before. While that may seem like a weird comment to some people, I knew my dad could see in me that I wasn’t taking time to appreciate the little things, and enjoy this time with Ryan that last year I didn’t get to have. So here is to unplugging from the social media reality, and creating a life I want to live - for me and my husband. 🌅💙
You don't have to own a ranch, lakeside cabin or slope-side condo to enjoy the fresh air, clean water and freedom of the outdoors. You, YES YOU, own some of the most freakin incredibly beautiful land in the world! And you can visit it anytime you want. You can camp, hike, bike, ski, shred, paddle, climb and fish on it. Hell, you can hunt, log and graze your cattle on much of it. Go ahead, it’s OURS, owned by the people, for the people. But, if you care about these lands take notice - they’re under threat.
Public land is a uniquely American concept, a bedrock of our culture. The idea to preserve land for the public good didn't even really exist before 1872 and the birth of Yellowstone as the world’s first National Park. With that history, the issue has usually enjoyed bipartisan support. But today the issue is bitterly partisan. Some argue public lands should be transferred to the states, because states rights, right? Wrong. Go read the Constitution’s property clause and the Enabling Acts that western states signed as they joined the Union.
Not convinced? Then know this. Federal land is managed for multiple uses by multiple groups. States manage land for profit. Historically, in tough budget years this resulted in the sale of millions of acres of state land. Hello “No Trespassing” signs 🚷
Last week saw an unprecedented attack on our Public Lands by our current administration. Bears Ears + Grand Staircase may not be perfect. Heck, the whole recreation economy is far from perfect. It doesn't always offer good paying jobs for locals and the development from a designation has the potential do more harm than good. But it is not worth risking the destruction of the cultural/ environmental resources of these places for the short-term gain of a few special interest groups from commercial extraction + the potential threat to dozens more monuments.
Three things we can do:
1. Donate to the @accessfund to protect Bears Ears
2. Support the @ducttapethenbeer campaign to build a Bears Ears cultural visitor center
3. Use your voice with @outdooralliance - head to their site for details
