Looking forward to these clear blue skies when I’m back in Montana.πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ


An American Mink, taking a break from morning fishing, decided to take a few seconds to check me out, while I shot away with the camera.


Lake McDonald, for almost more than a decade, has been the place I never grow tired of visiting. ⁣ ⁣ Looking back on this past summer, @rybanskunko and I decided to spend a day kayaking on Lake McDonald. We put the kayaks in the water and set off towards the distant peaks. While scanning the shoreline, we managed to find a beach that was appropriate for pulling up the kayaks, and we then went for a freezing yet refreshing swim.

The Isle of Skye is a perfect haven for sheep. This picturesque scene was one of many that I had always wanted to witness with my own eyes. Vibrant grass, trickling streams, and a plethora of photogenic sheep exceeded my highest expectations of what Scotland had to offer.

Before trying to visit Spirit Island, I hadn’t done any research as to how to actually get there. When I noticed the iconic red Canadian kayaks all over the lake, the dots connected in my mind, and it was apparent to me that you have to paddle your way there. You have to kayak roughly 20km to get to Spirit Island, so alternatively I hiked my way along the shoreline and was satisfied with watching people kayak back and forth across the lake. Maybe next time I’m back in Canada I’ll be prepared for a full day of kayaking! πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

I wish some of the color was back on the trees here in North Carolina, but I guess I’ll have to make due with the sunsets for now. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŒ„


Golden rays, after a colorful sunrise, hit the distant mountains that overlook the Atlantic Ocean.
