Anyone else excited for the rest of the week as much as we are? We are packing up again and heading to Washington, DC!
This will be our second time as a couple and first time with our daughter. Any tips, tricks, and must sees?
There is an expanse of open desert owned by the BLM west of Mountain's Edge - I checked out the James Brown Trail (AllTrails.com) on National Take a Hike Day 🏞 (late posting as usual). Fantastic views of the surrounding desert and Las Vegas from the peak on this trail. Found a graffiti covered broken down building while wandering around too, I'll put it up in a separate post.
With Thanksgiving tomorrow, we are knee deep in the holiday season! We are deeply grateful for every person who has supported Kidstown in every way shape and form this year. And we are thankful for those who have purchased from Lynch Creek Farms using our link which meant that Kidstown received 20%! If you are still looking for the perfect wreath, check out these handcrafted fresh products at https://www.lcffundraising.com/teams/107889-kidstown-international?fundraiser_id=447042 and Kidstown receives 20% of the funds which we'll be using for all of our home upgrade projects!!!
from my field notes: Yosemite National Park is located in Mariposa County, California, northeast of Fresno in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range at 4000ft. Yosemite Valley is a narrow canyon that runs east to west with the Merced River and is surrounded by steep granitic cliffs that are 2000-4000ft tall. At the east end of the valley is Half Dome 🏞 (8839ft) which has become a worldwide recognizable landmark. On the opposite end of the valley is El Capitan (7569ft). The dominant plant community in the valley is a montane mixed coniferous forest with scattered montane meadows. Here, the montane mixed coniferous forest is comprised of several distinct plant stories. The upper story is dominated by evergreen conifers🌲: Incense Cedar (Calocedrus decurrens) and Lodgepole Pine (Pinus contorta). The upper mid-story is dominated by the Black Oak (Quercus kelloggii), a deciduous oak that is currently yellowing into fall foliage, as well as Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menzisii), White Fir (Abies concolor), and Big Leaf Maple🍁 (Acer macrophyllum). The lower mid-story is dominated by Whiteleaf Manzanita (Arctostaphylos viscida) and Mountain Deerbrush (Ceanothus integerrimus). The ground cover was sparsely covered with Bracken Fern (Pteridium aquilinum) and other forbes🌾🌸🌿 and saplings. // *drops mic*
I haven’t posted in a while due to school and working taking up so much of my time, my photography has kinda been pushed aside for a while and I’m trying to find more one to eat out and take some more pictures, hopefully I will be posting more from now on.
Winter is here and I know some of you are craving that warmth. Welcome to @thestokeisreal! We love the people who are happiest outside and keep the stoke real. Tag us for a feature & tell your friends! #thestokeisreal
I know sometimes (AKA every time) when we go exploring I’ll convince you to walk places we shouldn’t be walking, climb things that are so steep, jump over stuff that could lead to a hospital visit of you don’t make it, but I’m always super stoked when I see you prepared to give it a go! I think your love of goats/mountain goats has helped keep you steady on your feet. Thank you for being you <3 #canada#explorebanff#explorecanada#paradisecanada
Feeling extra thankful this week, especially for a platform that fosters creativity, freedom of expression, and has created a community I’ve come to love and feel at home in. Instagram has allowed me to become a greater version of myself, both in practice by encouraging me to hone my own voice, but also by exposure to countless fantastic creatives and endless inspirational content. #thankyouinstagram#happythanksgiving#arynleidoescolorado#shotoniphone
