karl_shakur • •🚶🏾🌲✨• Jurassic Wonderland • Over the last 2 months, I’ve been buckled down at school, focused on finishing up my last semester in University. Hence the lack of new content. I graduate with a masters degree in May. In one week, I’ll finally have a much needed break. I’m planning to drive all the way from Kansas out through New Mexico and Arizona headed to San Diego and back around to Las Vegas. Tempted to take a flight from Las Vegas to somewhere more warm and tropical. Any suggestions on where to go? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!

Check out my story for a couple of my favorite moments, exploring it yesterday. Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!

karl_shakur • •⛰✨🚶🏾• Golden Trails • This right here is probably one of the most strenuous hikes I’ve done. I was running on 2 nights of no sleep, protein bars and oranges, and I decided to make my way up towards this iconic peak right outside Wanaka. I started the hike about an hour before sunset with the intention of making it up the peak for sunset and then spending the night up there. I completely underestimated the weight of all my camera and camping gear which completely negated all the hiking experience I have. On various occasions, I was too tired that I had to pull out my sleeping bag and take a power nap right off the trail. I ended up making it up to be view around midnight. Set up camp and woke up to the most breathtaking view I’ve had the honor of witnessing. Truly worth every huff and puff to get up the hill. I’d do it all over again. What’s the toughest hike you’ve been on? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!
karl_shakur • •⛰✨🌊• Alpine Reflections • Currently knee deep in mid term course work. I haven’t had any time to go out and create any new stuff, but I’m happy to say I’ve got some super exciting plans lined up for Spring and Summer. Any guesses where I’m headed? Hints - Tropical Paradise. Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!! Today’s the last day you can use my discount code ‘TACOS’ to get 24% off my Lightroom presets. Click the link in my bio to check them out.
karl_shakur • •🌴🏚🌺• Bohemian Paradise • Only 21 days left until the end of Spring. Looking forward to little flowers popping up all over town and much warmer nights, so I can spend time sleeping outside my tent gazing up at the night sky. Winter’s my favorite season, I look forward to it every year, but I also get tired of it quite quickly. What’s your favorite season? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!
karl_shakur • •🦌🌳✨• Fleeting Moments • There’s something so poetic about witnessing a scene like this unfold before you. The chatter quieted and everyone around me froze as the first deer began to make it’s way across this famous road. The silence was broken by the frantic shuffles of people grabbing at their cameras and rapidly firing away in an attempt to capture this scene. I was only able to come away with this blurry and smudgy impression, but the striking imagery will forever be seared into my mind. Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!
karl_shakur • •🚶🏾⛰🌊• Wave Worn • There’s something exhilarating about standing at the edge of a cliff and watching the sun set beyond it. Next time I visit this place, I’ll leave my camera back at home so I can fully immerse myself in the experience of watching he sun go down over this iconic landscape......or maybe my craving to create won’t let me do that and I’ll be forever permanently connected to my camera. Tag a friend who’d watch a sunset with you here. Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!
