Fun fact - Jackson Hole is my number 1 favorite town to visit in the U.S., and Grand Teton is probably my most-loved National Park in the lower 48 (it’s tough to beat those Alaskan parks!) 🏔 Thanks for such an epic trip @springhillsuites! ✨ #sponsored

Aaron and his best friend, Aiko, shared a walk in one of the most scenic vistas and a landscape filled with wildness and wild things. Grand Teton National Park remains a safe haven for our big/little furbearers. Outside those boundaries paints a different picture, where our furbearers and predatory animals are hunted and trapped without quotas, and killed in almost any manner. WU has been seeking to change that, to raise awareness of the need for wildlife management reform to meet our modern day understanding of the value of these creatures on our landscapes. |
@aaronrcouch, thank you for sharing the most treasured view and the home base of WU.
Stay safe out there everyone! And thanks for your ongoing support!

I saw a quote early this morning while I was getting ready for work, "The world is a book... and I WILL read it." Seeing that quote brought back a whirlwind of memories for me. Sometimes I feel that Brendan and I have only made a small dent in the sense of exploration and adventuring, while having to be "brought back to reality" to work and make money in between travels. Then, I looked at a map this morning and had a "woah!" moment, realizing how badass our life together has been thus far! From reaching mountain summits on the #appalachiantrail backpacking across four states, to now hiking hundreds of miles surrounding #grandtetonnationalpark , camping on a farm in the Utah desert for six months and exploring the canyons that surrounded us, backpacking through so many other State & National Parks, roadtripping across the US a few times, hiking to a glacial lake in #rockymountainnationalpark to get married, and SO much more! We are reading as many of the pages that this beautiful planet has to offer us that we can! I am adventuring and learning something new everyday with my best friend and have no plans to ever stop!! Life is so good, as our great trail friend @3mile_ has told us "Get off the couch, Here's to NOW!" #optoutside#at2015#gtnp#boulderutah#rmnp#herestonow @appalachiantrail @grandtetonnps @rockynps @lekiusa @vasquefootwear @ospreypacks @purposeperspective
Had a dream last night about my trip out West I took this past October. I was in #thegrandtetons and hiking in the snow, when I came upon a wolf and a moose. 🐾🐺🐃 The wolf stared at me, unflinching and regal. The moose nestled up to me and sniffed me like a dog would do. They then turned and I followed them along a hidden mountain path 🐾👢⛰❄️ to a desolate cave. Inside, there was a fire 🔥 and I saw my younger childhood self standing next to it, along with myself in my teens as they reached their hands over the flames. I felt a moment of convergence as feelings of past, future and present collided into one and a surge of renewal as if they were saying “let go” & “be strong”. Sometimes, I can linger in my past self and it clouds my vision of the present tense. I feel as if this dream was a rebirth of affirmations to not linger but to “just be” in the Here & Now.
As we move into 2018, I feel that pull of rebirth/renewal and to let the difficult times of 2017 stay behind and released.
This video is from my trip to the Grand Teton Mountains I took this past October. My knowledgeable guide from @tetonscience , Sarah, points out a male moose making his way across the animal refugee to seek out a female. As she describes, moose are superior in their scent ability & can smell better than a bloodhound. But have inferior eyesight. Moose are the largest class from the deer family. They run up to speeds of 35-40 mph and eat 40-50 lbs of food each day. This particular moose was on the scent trail of a female and walked right up to our tour bus. It was one of my favorite moments in the entire trip! 🐾🌅⛰
The Teton Range is a mountain range of the Rocky Mountains in North America. It extends for approximately 40 miles (64 km) in a north–south direction through the U.S. state of Wyoming, east of the Idaho state line. It is south of Yellowstone National Park and most of the east side of the range is within Grand Teton National Park. #tetons#grandtetonnationalpark#grandtetons
