"Hashtag #NBD" -Things that happened #onthisday: 1. There was a #solareclipse. 2. This is the #anniversary of me and @cheapgeek eloping. 3. I realized there will never be an eclipse on my wedding anniversary in my lifetime. Yep. 4. I just might be a halfway decent #photographer. I just need to convince everyone else. 5. Stop letting others take for granted or dismiss what's important to me.

The other week I posted a cool rock find on my personal page and someone commented that my rocks looked like 💩. Dog poop to be specific. Well, don't judge a rock by it's exterior.

#Naciemento mime. Cuba, #NewMexico. This deadly #green #lake of many colors fosters the perfect environment for #Serpentine Nodules, #Auzurite balls and cool concretions with white and green crystals.

#Help! Can any #rockhounds or #fossil experts tell me what I've found? It looks like a feathery worm but I'm clueless.

"I really need more pockets" -Im not trying being cute in this shot, I'm actually trying not to lose another #TeamCanon lens cap. I'm a nerd, a #camera #geek, #hiker and #dogmom. Sometimes, I'm a mechanic, an artist, or that person that always has gum. Women's clothing (especially #outdoor gear) needs more functional pockets. I'll get off my #soapbox now, even though it is upside down and 300 feet above! Look at that view tho'! #canonfanphoto with the #CanonEOS SL1 & EF 10-22mm. #unlikelyhikers #travelnewmexico #nmoutside #adventure #nature #blueskies #Hiking #selfie #outdoors #FindYourPark #neverstopexploring #cliffs #mountains #NewMexico #fatgirlshiking #girlswhohike via Instagram http://ift.tt/2vuclSh

#photobomb by #mymiserabledoginbeautifulplaces -When you spend several minutes setting up your #CanonEOS SL1 for that #perfect #landscape shot, and suddenly a "thunder boom" causes your #dog to start running towards you. The #newmexicoskies quickly turned gray and we piled into the van for our next #adventure.

"Swallowed by Fog" -Looking over the Sand Bluffs at El Malpais and I can barely see Ramah or Grants. On a clear day you can almost see the other side of the #NationalPark. #TeamCanon with the #CanonEOS SL1 & EF 10-22mm. #findyourpark #NewMexico #newmexicotrue #hiking #unlikelyhikers #landscape #southwest via Instagram http://ift.tt/2uUHHBk
