A crab spider with an Asteraceae Gaillardia flowered home. Found this little guy just outside of Moab, Utah protecting his flower. He did such a great job letting me know that this was his space and that I was not to intrude. His home was right along the Colorado River amongst the red rocks of southern Utah. That is what’s giving this portrait a rose colored background. He let me take a few pics before I took off and watched the full moon rise. #crabspider #spider #spidersofinstagram #wildflowers #wildflowerphotography #insects #insects_of_our_world #moab #moabutah #utah #utahphotographer #utahphotography #utahgram #southwest #coloradoriver #nature #naturephotography

When the colors of @grandcanyonnps look a bit like your @greatsmokynps. Home for me has always been the Smokies, but in reality, it is anywhere outdoors.

Holding on to summer with a paddle down the Colorado river with my sisters. Beautiful views, loads of sunshine, icy cold splashes over the rapids and lots of laughs.

Hoover Dam :A civil engineering lamd mark. The main pupose to build hooverdam was flood control, irregation & power generation. When it was completed in 1936 it became world's largest hydroelectric power station. Hoover Dam protects southern california & Arizona from floods. The funfact is it is situated on the border between Nevada & Arizona. You have the ability to stand in two states as well as two different time zones (Pacific & Mountain) when you cross the dam . . . . #travelpic #travelphotographer #engineering #architecture #architecturephotography #photographers #travellers #mustseeplaces #hooverdam #arizona #nevada #colorado #coloradoriver #blackcanyon #manmademarvels #photography #visittheusa #traveltheworldwithme #throughmylens #photojournal #photoblog #bloggers #travelinfluencer #travelmotivation #travelinspiration #JustGlobeTrotter #worldismyhome #natgeo #yourshotphotographer #natgeoyourshot

Imagine walking up to THIS... 🧡 Where in the world would you want to be waking up and what do you want to see?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Sunday Everyone 🧡 Follow @wishbookuk #Repost @cntraveler • • • • • • No road trip in America is more visually mind-blowing than a tour of the Mighty Five—the tight cluster of national parks in Utah that include Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches, and Canyonlands. Whether you start in Salt Lake City and work your way South, or head east from Las Vegas, it CAN be done in three days, but most people take seven, or even fourteen if they’re really going for it. Most of your time should and will be spent knocking around the Mars-like formations of red rocks, jutting needle spires, and sheer drops to the Colorado River, but in true American road-trip fashion, there’s some pitstops worth making along the way.. 📷: @reneeroaming #utah #zion #brycecanyon #archesnationalpark #capitolreefnationalpark #saltlakecity #canyonlandsnationalpark #lasvegas #cntraveler #coloradoriver #roadtripusa #mightyfive #dreamview #viewcolorado #viewsfordays #dreamlocation #tv_global #earth_bliss #earth_shotz #wanderlust_tribe #pocket_allnature #raw_allnature

Reposted from @esa_earth ( @get_regrann ) - The Colorado River Delta seen from space This Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission false-colour image shows the Colorado River Delta in the region of Baja California, Mexico. The Colorado River delta once covered a large area of land and, owing to its nutrients carried downstream, supported a large population of plant and bird life. However today, water that flows is trapped by dams and is used for residential use, electricity generation as well as crop irrigation for the nearby Imperial Valley and Mexicali Valley. The reduction in flow by dams and diversions traps the majority of the river’s sediments before they reach the Gulf of California, impacting water quality.

The countless #sunsets I sat in the sand along our beach in Blue Water Lagoon, counting how many train cars would cross at once until I’d lose count.... The Arizona and California #Railroad #Bridge a.k.a. “The Colorado River Bridge” was built in 1908. . Tonight, she burns 🔥😢 (swipe). . I hope they can save it somehow. A little piece of my heart is going up in flames. 🙏🏻🤟🏼🙏🏻. . . . #theriver #myriver #southwest #hometown #parker #parkeraz #rurallife #history #upinflames #arizona 🌵 #igsouthwest #igarizona #trainbridge #bridgetown #coloradoriver #sunset #fire

“What is life but a GRAND adventure?!” Day 2 was just that & more. It started & ended with the ladder at Mooney Falls. The sign reads “Descend at your own risk.” We hiked our hearts out, crossing the creek multiple times, down & up several ladders & into #grandcanyonnationalpark. My favorite part of the day was floating through the slot canyon, just before you get to the confluence of the Colorado River. Pure bliss!! I also love the contrast of the greenery against the red canyon & the infamous turquoise water. We hiked back to Beaver Falls with a gentle rain & a microburst of wind, which meant we had the place to ourselves. We also ran into a family of Big Horn Sheep. When we made it back to Mooney Falls, we had much cause to celebrate. 18 miles, with a little blood, sweat, & tears is kind of a big deal. <<45/52🥾97/100>> 9.5.19 💙 • • • • • #hikeandbehappy #dayhikes #day2 #supai #havasu #mooney #beaver #chasingwaterfalls #grandcanyon #confluence #arizonahighways #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #coloradoriver #supaisisters #gowiththeflow #adventurefriends #slotcanyon #hike45 #52hikechallenge2019 #hike97of100 #hikerbabesorg100 @hiker_babes @hikerbabesphxaz @52hikechallenge #gogalavanting #optoutside #nofilter

Ещё один невероятной красоты природный объект в штате Аризона. Каньон Подкова— это удивительно красивый изгиб реки Колорадо, пробившей себе симметричное русло в форме огромной подковы. Поверхность реки блестит и переливается на солнце различными оттенками зеленого и синеватого цветов. Цвета Подковы в течение дня меняются в зависимости от освещения. Тень то скрывает какие-то ее части, то уходит из каньона совсем. Каньон Подковы был нам совсем не по пути, дорога к нему заняла более 6 часов по штату Юта и дальше все пошло немного не по плану. Рядом с каньоном расположена обустроенная парковка, где тебя встречают Рейнджеры и в очередной раз напоминают о необходимости взять с собой бутылочку воды, т.к. пеший путь составляет около 1200м. и под палящим солнцем он будет не из легких. 20 минут прогулки на солнце по горячему песку в одну сторону и, казалось, что сил больше нет и все зря. Но вид открывается настолько впечатляющий, что мы не пожалели о потраченном времени и пройденном пути. От возможности ходить вдоль глубокого каньона Хорсшу Бенд без всяких перил захватывало дух. Каждый подходил как можно ближе к краю и заглядывал вниз, насколько хватало смелости. Нам с @iri6e4ka7 так и хотелось, как мы любим, сесть на край и свесить свои ножки, но песчаник настолько неровный и скользкий, что мы не стали рисковать, ведь это было только начало нашего путешествия по национальным паркам). #horseshoebend #arizona #nationalpark #usa #amazing #trip #coloradoriver #kanyon

📍 Dead Horse Point 🐴. . Gros coup de 🖤 pour ce parc d’état ! Au coucher de soleil c’est flamboyant, avec 360° au bout du plateau (encore très étroit 😂, coucou le vide de chaque côté de la route...). 600 m en dessous : le Colorado. Et les zones bleues turquoise ? Des bassins d’évaporation de potasse ... #deadhorsepoint #deadhorsepointstatepark #coloradoriver #visitutah #canyonoverlook #viewcolorado #beautahful   #igutah   #iloveutah   #utahrocks   #visitutah #exploreutah   #unrealutah   #redrock

We were at the #grandcanyon a little while back and I didn't even post a pic of this amazing place... There were remnants of snow and it was freezing each morning! It was good (sort of) to see the lack of safety measures there and people have to take responsibility for their own lives. It was a bit dicey with icy paths beside knee high walls in some parts and 1km drops! One spot was called 'The Abyss'. More to come :) pics do not to it justice. Get there! No filter. . . . . . . #arizona #grandcanyonnps #nature #landscapephotography #landscape #landscapecaptures #coloradoriver #snow #naturalwonder #bucketlist @nature #canonusa @capturelandscapes @onlythebestcapture @canon
