Taking a self guided Northern Ireland tour! Ended today with the rope bridge, made for and by fisherman in the early 1900's to take advantage of the salmon flocks in early spring. Sadly, there is no salmon left today, just the bridge and small hut. The views are stupendous though. I can't imagine how nice it would be to live here!
If these walls could talk 🗿
This was the first creek I went rappelling in. The waterfalls were swell, but this hallway of basalt columns blew me away, as did a pair of ducks that had seemed to make this place their home😌
#tbt - My mom lives in the north woods of Wisconsin, where "next-door neighbors" might be a mile or two down the road. Every year, ruby-throated hummingbirds swarm to her feeders, and it isn't uncommon to see dozens at a time darting in and out for a nip nectar. I made this frame two summers ago, having to shoot long and through her screen door. I love this frame for the stillness of an otherwise restless bird, but also because of the lone drop of nectar dangling from her beak.
📍You've Got Baked Cafe, Nuvali Philippines - We stumbled upon the cutest cafe - they have a delicious cupcakes called "Dulce and Gabbana" and I knew at that moment I found my favourite place to sip on tea and eat baked goods in Santa Rosa, Laguna. Not to mention the outside of the cafe was decorated in pink and blue balloons in an arch around the door
Pete and I have been on the road almost a week now, and we are one more short push from our destination: Rapid City, SD. Every day since we left has been 100 degrees or more as we have been crushing through the merciless desert. A few days ago while in Nevada, I remembered Great Basin National Park- and the cool and crisp high altitude temps were too much to resist, so we detoured and spent two nights up there. It was worth it. Here, Pete gives no f*cks about being at 10,000 elevation, and hucks air to catch a perfect spiral. We played endlessly- and I have never seen him pant so hard in the thin air. Gasping and breathing for air as my heart nearly beats out of my chest in the alpine is one of my favorite feelings in life, and it was dope to see him sucking air and having an absolute blast his first time up at altitude. @hikingwithdogs_ #PeterTheHeeler
Friends are here to inspire us and help us in times of darkness and doubt. A friend is not someone who agrees when you agree, laughs when you laugh, but they are a spark and consciousness that slaps our own egos in the face when needed. A friend is here for the good times, and boy do they make you go all the way! But never forget, a true friend is the one who stands by you in times were great courage is necessary.
