Mt. Whitney through Mobius Arch. Lone Pine/Alabama Hills is such a cool place to stop if you’re near Death Valley or headed to Mammoth. And you can set up camp wherever your little heart desires🙌🏼 Side note: anyone have tips on climbing Whitney?!🏔
Thor and Hulk start the John Muir Trail circa 2014 ⚡🌵 #tbt
I carried the now defunct Golite Jam while Steve carried a granite gear crown. I was so concerned with weight I didn't bring a proper shelter and was very fortunate with weather and the kindness of others. I had backpacked for about five years up until this point but this was my first long trail. Things didn't go as planned but I learned they never do. I finished the trail in twelve days with one zero.
Pretty epic #TBT to the highest peak in the lower 48.
Life’s funny. It never turns out like you think it will. It’s hard to differentiate what’s good for you and what’s not sometimes. I see so many people post about “finding balance” and searching for meaning. I have to remind myself it’s ok to loose your balance every now and then. But you have to get it back. You have to throw out the negative to make way for the positive but that’s easier said than done. My sis and I are used to moving a lot. Always making a new place feel like home. Our mom taught us how to do that. We have restless spirits and crave challenges and change which makes it difficult to stay in one place for too long. It’s a blessing and a curse I think. I pray that God will guide us onto the path He knows is best, regardless if it’s out of our comfort zones. I pray for peace for those that have restless and anxious minds and to teach them how to let things go.
There’s still so much to learn and goals to achieve. I want to make things with my hands again, sustain my own home, garden and serve my community. I want to choose happiness above all else. Thank God for every blessing each day and He will draw your wandering and anxious mind back to Him, offering the most precious gift: Peace. ❤️ #DailyDose
Aim to do big things in life. Life is what you make it. What you want is what you can have - you just have to want it. Success is out there, you just have to go get it. This picture is taken essentially at the bottom of Mt. Whitney, many look up and wish one day they could summit the grand mountain in the back drop. Why not? Why can't you? Nothing is stopping you from the summit except for yourself. Just get out there and do it. Make your life what you've always dreamed of.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
