The oldest living organisms on Earth lying patiently in the shadow of Wheeler Peak and the glacier. These freakin trees are older than Jesus guys. Also the trail through this forest was full of so many loose rocks I swear I nearly twisted my ankles a dozen times. Be safe out in the middle of nowhere guys. I also love this first photo because you can see the Great Basin desert stretch off into the distance at roughly ~6,000ft less elevation in a dozen miles.

It's time to apply for tickets to tour this gorgeous freak. Fly Geyser, not far from the putty-colored playa known as Black Rock Desert, is a technicolor blend of iron (red), sulfate (yellow), and algae (yup, the green crud) on private property in northern Nevada. It was born in 1964 when the drill from a geothermal company accidentally exposed it. After 55 years, it's getting a little taller and a touch lovelier by the year. Details and ticket info at blackrockdesert.org/fly-geyser

✨📦 It’s been a while since i’ve felt excited about shooting again. This time I’m trying to teach myself how to shoot better climbing photos and it feels all shiny and new to pick up my camera. ✨✨✨
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 
Do you have any fun photo projects on the horizon or new things you’re trying with photography?

Also if you shoot climbing photos, would love any tips! 🙏🏻 Crashpad #gifted by metoliusclimbing

Planning trips in late Feb/early March are tricky. We had to adjust plans a few times due to weather and permits. Landed on a 12 mile paddle through the Black Canyon, down the Colorado River...making stops along the way to explore and soak in 4 different hot springs, then camped on the beach with an impressive fire, post an under the stars soak adventure. Not sure how I’m going to go back to a life that doesn’t include a daily nature soak 🤷🏻‍♀️ becky.schreiber wins the trip saver award for coming up with plan F that was an A+ adventure and thankful for kkurc for doing all the hard work of steering the canoe 🛶
Hello Reno! carrasykes and I are on our first road trip with baby Walt! I'm so excited to have partnered with travelnevada again to explore the free range art highway! Follow us along this psychedelic, open-air odyssey across the Silver State where we will encounter awesome art, wide-open roads, and everything in between.
