ericeugenius Charmander Red Spotted Newts go through three stages of metamorphosis: starting as aquatic larvae they then form into the terrestrial eft (juvenile) which is pictured above. Once it's second metamorphosis is complete this newt will revert back to its aquatic lifestyle and become yellowish-green in colour. The little red spots remain on the adult newts as a warning of toxicity. 1w

ericeugenius Glorious sunrise to greet us on the road, thanks North Dakota This is the first sunrise I've seen in many weeks. In the mountains and higher latitude day and night tend to gracefully melt into each other. So I was pretty stoked to see the entire horizon lit up with fire this morning 2w

ericeugenius Seldom do I look this genuinely happy. There is nowhere I've ever been that makes nature feel so immense and pristine. I'm going to miss the mountains, the unique flora and fauna, the crazy long days of sunlight and drinking water raw from the streams Most of all, I will miss the hikes that made me feel all alone in a untouched world This is the end of the vacation but I've a feeling that this trip will stick with me for a long time. Saying goodbye to this beautiful land and beginning the last leg of our journey today. Only 4,200 miles stand between me and my garden in South Jersey! Have to admit, I am ready to be back Thank you all for joining me in this adventure 3w

ericeugenius Even rocks are beautiful here found on our hike up to the copper mine. 3w
  •   socaljules Oh I swoon for that rock. Want love admire 3w
  •   ericeugenius I know! I'm not sure if we grabbed this one. They were all over the place, I mean just everywhere. I would have brought half the mountain down with me if I didn't discipline myself @socaljules 3w
  •   socaljules I was visiting family in Canada and seriously Eric every other rock we picked up at this lake had fossils in it. My husband finally had to yell at me. ENOUGH or our suitcases won't go home with us. But oh these peacock colors are FAB 3w
  •   ericeugenius Nooo way! Where in Canada?! I would have been the same way haha. I want to polish a few and see how they look. @socaljules 3w
  •   lilikoi1523 Beautiful ! 3w

ericeugenius 6,983 feet at the peak. Highest I've ever been! That's my brother, Eddie, who was brave enough to climb down the rocks to help give some scale to the shot. 3w

ericeugenius These are copper carbonates: malachite (green) and azurite (blue). There was a massive amount of copper in the valley that was mined in the early 1900's. These little pieces are basically mineral deposits containing copper that have become oxidised creating the beautiful colours. It's pretty crazy to think that it is essentially what rust is to iron. I felt like I was holding little lakes and islands in my hand when I took this photo🌎 little treasures all around :) hoping to uncover more today! 4w
  •   ericeugenius Thank you my friend :) @jschrijn 3w
  •   pinoyveg What are you taking up in college? I was a vet student. Was, ha ha. 3w
  •   toinfinityandbeyond31 @ericeugenius it should it's always the little things!! 3w
  •   traveldrive I have so much to give you too lol! Seeds...rocks...minerals...!!! 3w
  •   ericeugenius @pinoyveg I'm not quite as ambitious as you were I cannot decide what I want to do so I went with a Liberal Studies major. 3w
  •   ericeugenius @lovngmindfulnss I want to try and polish some down and see how they look! A lot of them are just copper ore with a thin build up of azurite/malachite on the outside. But I found a nice solid chunk that I want to polish and make into a ring for my mom! I've seen the jewellery made from it and it's beautiful ! 3w
  •   lovngmindfulnss @ericeugenius Your mom will be so surprised! :) 3w

ericeugenius Donoho Peak, 6,698 feet tall. I am in McCarthy, Alaska right now. Nestled in the midst of a national park the size of New Hampshire; a 60 mile gravel road is the only way in and out other than taking a small plane. We drove in, but this picture is from the other day when we had the opportunity to go for a flight with a friend. This mountain is just a baby on comparison to the taller ones we can see from our camp. Mount Blackburn tops off at 16,390 feet and you will be seeing it in future posts! 4w

ericeugenius Oops! Didn't mean to post this, oh well! There was a bald eagle that kept flying by the bridge and raiding the seagull nests. Flew off with three chicks while I was there. This is the best I managed to capture though. 1mon
