I consider this place being something like a trademark of USA 🇱🇷 This was taken before the sunrise and you just got to love these three famous rocks, because there is something magical around this place 👍
Tohle považuju za takovej trademark USA.

The Grand Staircase geological region in the Southwestern US is a vast desert and a great recordbook for geological and biological history. Varied erosion rates of different rock types create cliffs, slopes, hoodoos, and other natural structures. 6,000 ft of elevation change and natural streams, rock scrambles, and slot canyons help make it disneyland for hikers 🏞🌄 #utah #lifeelevated #grandstaircaseescalante #grandstaircase #kivacoffeehouse #redsunset #sunset #hiking #adventure #rock #geology #instagood #agameoftones #instasunsets #canyon #roadtrip #coloradoplateau #southernutahphotographer #southernutahphotography #southernutah #hoodoos #redrock #escalante #nikon #outdoors #hikingutah #desert #trail #instaoutdoors #instahike

Grandview Moon
The full December moon finds its way to a magical spot over the buttes and mesas of Canyonlands National Park, Utah, as sunrise paints the already wonderfully hued cliffs with even richer and more dynamic tones than one might expect possible.

Rodeo Rapid on Colorado River.
Rodeo Rapid on Colorado River.
And then suddenly it hit me.
That moment when you realize you're not half empty.
That moment of all moments.
Like there is music in the night and we can dance the sun out of the sky.
These are the nights when everything feels possible.
Maybe one day we'll fall short of the stories we tell,
But tonight we are more than just words on a page.
We are here, we are different, and we are everlasting.
We are half moon kids.
We are legendary.

"Reverse Muley" - This seldom seen view is looking north towards Muley Point from Douglas Mesa on the Navajo Nation.  I'm lucky enough to have a permit allowing me to access and camp in these otherwise closed areas to conduct wildlife surveys  #utah #utahisrad #utahunique #coloradoplateau #imbcr2018 #douglasmesa #wildlifebiologist #sanjuanrivercanyon #ilovethedesert

🎵One blue star, sets on the hill
Call it back,  you never will
One more star, sinks in the past
Show me something built to last🎵

I've spent around 20 nights in wilderness areas already this year, but this was the first time I was able to photograph the galactic center of the milky way. Conditions were absolutely perfect. There are no better night skies in the lower 48 than those of the Colorado Plateau. I'm grateful to call it my home.

Anasazi ruins. They lived here for about 1300 years starting about 1 AD. Amazing! #anasazi #prehistoric #historylesson #newthings #neverstopexploring #seetheworld #roadlesstraveled #offthebeatenpath #primitive #cedarmesa #coloradoplateau #kanegulch #ruins
It's so interesting to think how the lines of the past lead us to the present. Where will the lines we are drawing today take us?

Finished off a week of climate justice action across the Colorado Plateau by walking with the White Mesa Ute Mountain Ute community and dear friends in protest of the last uranium mill in the nation. I ended the day with a nice healing dip at one of my favorite spots on the Colorado. This region—its people, land, and water—have my full heart.

Yesterday’s show about land use, both past and present, on the Colorado Plateau is fascinating. Go to www.kzmu.org/show/science-moab/ or find it on iTunes to hear the soon to be Dr. Kate Magargal explore human interactions with landscape.

"Around the Bend" - This remote and seldom seen view of the San Juan River (Not the Goosenecks!) made for an excellent campsite for a nearby early-morning bird survey.  #utah #utahisrad #utahunique #utahisbeautiful #utahlandscapes #utahpubliclands #mypubliclands #sanjuanriver #meander #sunset #imbcr2018 #wildlifebiologist #coloradoplateau
Driving an old Defender on a busy U.S. highway is terrifying so I take the backroads whenever possible.  This is the dirt route from Blanding to Norwood. .

“Lassiter, Roll the Stone.” We found a canvas at the Museum of Northern Arizona that made us think of the most infamous line from our favorite novel (and opera!) - Serena Supplee’s “In Balance” 1993. •

The Colorado River slices through pre-Cambrian stone from the Tonto Trail on the edge of Mineral Canyon in the @grandcanyonnps backcountry. W/ @marlaofstad @emmaruwitch and brother Joe - awesome backcountry companions.

Patterns in the Mud Hills,
The Colorado Plateau is a geologic miracle - petrified sand dunes, limestone cliffs, reefs, swells, canyons, buttes, spires, pinnacles, plateaus, and bentonite clay! 
I call these the Mud Hills - large expanses of bentonite clay - pretty and interesting when dry, but an impassible slippery mess when wet. Extra interesting stuff.
Even more interesting are the volcanic lava bombs lying here at the bottom of the gully. These basalt bullets were launched from a volcano somewhere, and eventually eroded out of these clay hills.

Layers of sediment accumulated over hundreds of millions of years, each layer with its own unique story. Erosion has given us a glimpse of those stories. White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park.
