Sometimes, nature makes you stop in your tracks, and you find yourself taking a moment to appreciate the spectacular views in front of you. It could be an amazing sunset while you're hiking up a mountain, or a fresh patch of wildflowers in a field you're driving by. With something that beautiful, you know it's one of those "take a picture, it'll last longer" moments. While it may be a #NoFilter needed pic, a caption is still necessary, so you’ll want to keep some scenery captions for Instagram handy.

Coming up with the right thing to say in the moment may seem impossible, especially when you’re at a loss for words. It helps in those times to have a few scenery caption options ready to go. These 40 nature quotes can easily be plugged into your Insta posts of you standing next to giant sequoia trees in California, traversing through pink canyons in Arizona, or discovering large waterfalls in Hawaii. The less time it takes you to post, the more sights you get to see. Now that the CDC states that people who are fully vaccinated can safely travel, you’re ready to go on your next adventure. Whether that’s a camping trip, beach getaway, or just a random Tuesday when the skyline is perfect shades of orange and red, you’ll be ready.
