Third time in DC but first time driving in the city. Spent an hour on Friday morning driving during rush hour. I thought I have quite the road rage while behind the wheels but hot damn, I’ve never been around so many aggressive drivers who know ZERO boundaries until this past Friday. It’s like I blinked and there’ll be a car two inches away waiting on my parking spot. So of course it was neat to find this gem in the middle of the hustling and bustling (plus the angry drivers!). Lots of envy on the vicinity to great parks in the area. Zero envy on the driving situation 👀🤦🏻♀️ #rockcreekpark#washingtondc#nofilter#fortderussy#civilwardefensesofwashington
Yosemite is a muse.
It's the place that nurtured the great Ansel Adams. It's the inspiration for the author and naturalist John Muir, whose soaring prose so beautifully captures what it means to stand among these great granite structures. It's the subject of some of the most gorgeous works by the painter Albert Bierstadt, reminiscent of something truly enchanted.
This is El Capitan just after sunrise, as the light kisses the front face of the great rock formation. Yosemite is also now my muse, humble though those efforts may be in comparison.
