When we ate lunch, it was sunny and mid 60's. An hour later, after hiking down into a spur of the Grand Canyon, a massive thunderstorm blew in with rain and hail, followed quickly by a dump of a few inches of snow. With nearly 100 miles to the nearest paved road, it was an exciting, cold and muddy journey back to civilization. Good times! #parashant#fieldworkfun
I was nominated for a nature photo challenge by @fierycelticlass in a effort to highlight the natural world. The request is to share nature pics (one per day for 5 days) and tag a different friend every day.
#tbt working in the backcountry of the Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument. This park is located on the Northern rim of the Grand Canyon, and features some of the most dramatic landscape this country has to offer. The Parashant is rich in both cultural and natural resources, is largely undeveloped, and is one of the most isolated parks in the U.S. If you were to spend just a day here, you would understand the importance of our public lands. I nominate @tacosandbutter __________________________________________________

Before this car, I really didn't understand or appreciate what a vehicle could do for you. I thought I just needed something that could get me from Point A to Point B. But with all my yearnings to be outside, see new places, see where new roads lead (especially the dirt ones!), I needed something that would satisfy those cravings. This car did it for me. She never came across a road she couldn't handle. She never complained or caused any problems. She took @dad.daughter.dog, the kids, and I all around the #Sierras , the #Parashant , #Kofa , and many, many other places. She's a champ!! And she's now in good hands with @davidsherbertmillions who has big plans for her! I am thankful, I am proud, and I will miss her. But she taught me well. Knowing I needed a car that could keep up with this "lil' engine that could," but also offer safety features and better gas mileage for daily commutes, our family has a new #SubaruForester to get us out there (and also get us to work and school)! Pictures to come!
