Have you visited Zion National Park before?
This desert park has no shortage of things to do. Hike up Angel’s Landing and see if you can brave the heights to see a view of the stretching canyon. Brave the river to hike The Narrows and learn why people love exploring canyons. Take in beautiful views of red rocks like The Watchmen and so many others.

The spider in animal totem language represents a symbol of mystery, mystic power, and spiritual growth. You might not pay much attention of these creatures in waking life, but they’re a lot similar to us, the great humans. As the spiders weave their webs, we weave our lives. They’re trying to survive by finding a spot in a corner where they can start building their web. So are we. Everyone’s trying to survive in this world. Everyone fights a battle you know nothing about. That’s why we shouldn’t be judgmental.
Spider symbol in animal totem lore specifically reminds us how our choices construct our lives. Spiders are ancient symbols of infinity as well. According to ancient people, they can teach you how to manipulate your thinking in order to build a better life for yourself, and the people around you. They teach awareness, and survival intuition. Humans often ignore their intuition and inner instincts. The spider's web represents an amazing, flawless construction. It’s supposed to teach us that we’re capable of creating the perfect life for ourselves. But only if we follow our survival instincts and gut.
Yellowstone 1. The first part of our journey through #yellowstonenationalpark was spent at the #grandcanyonofyellowstone and #mammothlodge . Both were amazing though it turned out to be a rather rainy afternoon and some of us may have been a little underprepared for the deluge and cooler temps #flipflopsinsnow . We caught the falls from so many angles the kids started refusing to get out of the car so we got some alone time:) We stayed in a super cute cabin at Mammoth Lodge (and I, of course, busted out my laundry line and washed a few necessities in the sink). The next morning we got to checkout the nearby Steps which I thought were breathtaking even though I spent most of the time carrying a four year old up the hill. Definitely one of my favorites! We discovered as we went along that each thing in Yellowstone is more amazing than the next and the rainy day was perfect as it kept the crowds to a manageable size. @yellowstonenps#nationalparks#babybackpack#rainyday#roadtrip#roadtripusa
I don’t have a caption for these images, but I do have a bit of a backstory for them.
So I wanted to originally shoot at Crackneck Lookout but I wasn’t allowed to, so I went for a quick walk thinking I’ll find another spot to shoot from........ Well I was wrong as the next spot was over a kilometre away and with 5 minutes till sundown, I had to compromise for a drone only shoot. The lesson I learnt was do my research prior to travelling to these new spots🤣

There are fantastic sights to see in every National Park. That is, of course, why they're national parks, set apart to be untouched by the development of the world so we could see them, so our kids could experience them, so our grandchildren could witness the same sights years from now. They're important. **************************************************** My favorite aspects of Yellowstone National Park aren't the sights but the sounds and smells. Well, some of the smells are a bit... strong, but I love how multidimensional the park is. There are unique sounds to each geyser, paint pot and steam vent - you could sit there for hours just listening to the glip-glops and plops all the while smelling like you're at your favorite hot springs pool. The sulfur smell wafts through the exhibits, clearing your sinuses as you watch water hurled from the earth like that time your stomach decided you had tossed back one too many tequila shots. But unlike tequila, I'm looking forward to a repeat weekend. Yellowstone, I'll be back. .
