#HikeForMentalHealth - If I can't escape civilization, like truly escape, I start to implode. #WorkLifeBalance, #boundaries, and achieving #personalgoals have really been pushed aside the past few months, but I'm REALLY feeling it lately. Nothing would make me feel better right now than going #offthebeatenpath and getting lost in the mountains, it's the only place I find clarity. Somewhere with no signal, #NewMexico. #stuckintheratrace #ThisIsWhyIhike #unlikelyhikers #neverstopexploring #adventureisoutthere #nomad #findyourpark #NewMexicoTrue #TeamCanon via Instagram http://ift.tt/2iKNTtC

#Day3 of #blackandwhite #7daychallenge -White Sands National Monument, #NewMexico. I prefer the full-color version, but #monochrome definitely gives off it's own unique feels. #TeamCanon with the #CanonEOS SL1 and EF 10-22. . . . #findyourpark #thisiswhyihike #Hiking #neverstopexploring #NewMexicoTrue #nmoutdoors #travel #adventure #lovelydeadcrap #sand #lensflare #sunbeams via Instagram http://ift.tt/2l4Ibn4

#7daychallenge - thanks @oddball_sc. This is one of my favorite shots, whether it's #blackandwhite or color. I shot this while laying in a mud puddle as an expression of just how vast and #desolate the #Southwest truly is.
