#Seaotterawarenessweek ! Sea otters are a keystone species meaning they are a species that the ecosystem they inhabit largely depends on, such that if they were removed the ecosystem would change drastically. With sea otters, they keep sea urchins in check that would otherwise decimate the kelp forests. Kelp forests are important as they provide the basic building blocks for large underwater ecological communities. Even now, after the return of the sea otters, so much damage was done to the kelp forests along the Californian coast that there are still areas called urchin barrens, that are desolate underwater deserts that contain limited biodiversity due to the missing kelp forests.⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ .⁣⁠ #seaotter #seaotters #seaottersavvy #otterlyadorable #ottersofinstagram #otters #endangeredspecies #marinewildlife #oceanwildlife #oceanconservation #wildcalifornia #conservation #californiawildlife #wildmonterey #montereybay #mosslanding #elkhornslough #wildplanet #wildlifeplanet #nanpapix #naturefirst #bns_animals #live_love_wildlife #wildlifeonearth #natgeowildlife #bbcwildlife #nikonwildlife #worthmorealive

Postcard perfect! • • • In just about two weeks I will (finally!) be jetting off to Europe 🤗🤗🤗 • It’s been 2 years since I’ve spent any time there (unless you count a few hours walking around central London on a long lay over to Africa last year, but I don’t...), and it’s been nearly 6 months since I had surgery on my ears. They’re still not quite ready for the altitude but I’m keeping them medicated and I have a plan. So, fingers crossed that it isn’t a complete disaster 🤞🏼✈️ 😳 • • • Here, that familiar view I’ve been missing so much. In any “typical” day at LAX planes take off from east to west, out over the ocean, so you get a great view of SoCal beaches on either side of the plane. And, depending on your destination, you get quite a lot of other scenery. • If you’re headed to SFO, sit on the left. The plane will hook right and cut back over land, but you’ll have a view of the coast the entire flight. • If you’re headed east the plane will u-turn out over the ocean. On the right you’ll get a view of Santa Monica and Malibu beaches and Catalina Island on the way out, and on the left you’ll get some of that on the way back in. • The left gets you a view of Orange County beaches if you’re headed south. • In other words, pick a window seat, because there’s never a bad view! 💁🏻‍♀️🙌🏼✨ • • • #airplaneviews #windowseat • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #theearthlyvagabond #travelblogger • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #california #socal #southerncalifornia #losangeles #lax #visitcalifornia #wildcalifornia • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #aerial #traveling #airplanewing #beachview #travelstoke #adventureanywhere #travelgram #instatravel #traveltips #sweetflightomine @sweetflightomine • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #femaletravel #femaleadventuretravel #adventureswithgirls #girlsthatwander #teamkaptainkenny

"the High Life" Yosemite N.P. | California - Finally got to climb to the top of Half Dome this past weekend. Such a fun hike and the views from the top are just amazing. Also a random cool thing happened. As I was walking by, without knowing anything about me, another hiker said I looked like "an awesome rockstar photographer." She said it was because I had a "green aura" around me. The green aura was probably the Gatorade I spilled on my shirt and I'm not awesome at anything but thanks for the compliment @syrenselement and making someone else feel good on your own birthday. HBD to you. It was a good day.

that full cup, slow morning kind of mountain medicine 🏔 This mountain just keeps calling me back. Feeling mighty blessed to have slept at its base three times over the last few years...Even now, its hard for me to believe I climbed to the tippy top. But I when I close my eyes and take a deep breath, I remember💫 filling up on moments like these

A chatty little guy -wanted to make sure to let everyone know he was around. Did try to make sure to stay in the shade from the evening sun, which made it a challenge to grab a click of, but one or two is all you need to say you succeeded. . . .

~Honeymoon~ Day 4 Quando arrivi e ti affacci sul belvedere del Tunnel View la vista è mozzafiato: una vallata ricoperta da verdi conifere altissime e sormontata dalle imponenti pareti verticali di El Capitan e dell'Half Dome. Ci siamo goduti dei paesaggi di impareggiabile bellezza tra specchi d'acqua e rocce granitiche. E che dire del tramonto sull'Half Dome al Glacier Point: ogni cosa parla da sè 💚

When you know, you know, am I right? Some business owners have been on the entrepreneurial path since birth…I tried a few careers before finding photography. I’m an adventure portrait photographer and I love it, and I’ve been running Foxy by Design for about 2 years now. . I knew, without question, that I had to pursue this whole-heartedly when we did the portrait session for Starla & Bryce last spring! Seeing the sun rise over the mountains at Glacier Point, getting to EDIT those photos and seeing the reaction of my clients when they saw their photos for the first time let me know THIS is what I'm meant to do. <3 . When did you know you were on the right path? . #californiaphotographer #californian #californialife #bayareaphotographer #californiagirls #californialiving #californiacoast #beachlifestyle #wildcalifornia #northerncaliforniaphotographer #californiaphotography #travelcalifornia #northerncalifornia #adventurephotography #adventurephotographer #adventuresession #adventuregram #adventureinspired #adventurers #adventurepic #adventureday #adventureislife #bucketlistadventures #adventureseekers #adventureenthusiasts #adventureofalifetime #adventureclub #adventurelife

This bull gathered together over a dozen cows. He was constantly checking on them to see which one was receptive. He would intimidate the 5 other bulls surrounding his harem. He bugled and would rub his antlers in the grass. It was a lot of work. At times you could see him breathing heavy with exhaustion, but that is what the other bulls are waiting for, him to tire so they can challenge him for his prize. He didn't stop to eat or lie down. Even with all this showmanship, the cows did not seem very impressed by him either. Tough crowd. Best of luck to this bull. . . . . #tuleelk #elk #elkrut #bullelk #cowelk #fallishere #antlers #nikond3300 #nikonusa #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifewatching #naturetime #pointreyesnationalseashore #piercepointranch #californiacoast #marincounty #weekendadventures #goldenhour #goldengrass #wildbayarea #wildcalifornia

Dive Report: 9/25/19 6:30AM⠀ Few small waves with a bit of power, slight current on the surface. Visibility is slightly declining. You can still see 15 feet ish but it’s green and hazy. That bait ball is still swirling around the edge of the canyon and there are a TON of octopus out and about!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷©️: @underwaterpaparazzi ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #underwaterpaparazzi #underwaterphotography #marcophotography #60mm #canon80d #sculpin #lajollashores #coldwaterdiving #wildcalifornia #belowthesurface

Hello summit views! Everything seems so close when you are above the valley...almost like you could walk right over to Mt Diablo in the distance! Loved our time at the summit soaking in the views and enjoying the breeze. We had it all to ourselves for a good 15 minutes! Such a bonus when you don't have to share the spot you worked so hard to get to! 😉⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #smilinginsonoma #localadventurer #naturalcalifornia #outdoormaster #lovewhereyoulive #rawcalifornia #exploremore #takemoreadventures #forceofnature #liveauthentic #castateparks #sonoma #sonomacounty #hikecalifornia #wildcalifornia #thenorcalcollective #californiaholics #explorecalifornia #abc7now #californiagems #californiathroughmylens #whereAm_I_CA #viewfromthetrail #thetraillife #earthofficial #seekmorewilderness #findyourselfoutside #hikingviews #choosemountains #nicehike
