Adventures in Wonderland: NatGeo photographer tours the U.S. Southwest with his six-year-old Instagram rock star
National Geographic shared with us this great story (link) about a special family. And I think is a great story cause I like to remember this: "Do whatever it takes to transmit to your kids your passion. You will always a part of them"
The April/May 2016 issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine includes a feature by photographer Aaron Huey, who is well known as the father of Hawkeye Huey, the 6-year-old photographer with more than 200,000 followers on Instagram.

The pictures he took, and others he has shot since, are great treasures to me. But most important are our family adventures along the roads that wind among America’s natural cathedrals—places that were sacred to the native peoples—and the stories and lessons we collect along the way. -said Aaron Huey on National Geographic (link) -
