I promise Lobo really does like hiking. This is his tired face and it doesn't happen very often (it's usually me making this face). I'm just glad I was able to capture this one in focus and without too much snow on the lens.
Space. The final frontier. Figured I'd send Milky way season off with something a little different - thanks to @dreamspacephotography for letting me hook up to his star tracker for this close-up of the Milky Way core. 2.5 minute exposure @ 170mm.
Even if I feel like not getting out of bed on Sunday, I still do. Getting everyone ready and out the door by 8:50am.
Getting to church ends up being the best thing for me. I can literally feel my spirit being nourished. Even if I don't always get to hear everything being said over the pulpit, due to children going potty, being chatty, or throwing tantrums. I feel like God blesses me for just being present, and having the desire to learn and grow.
We're commanded to Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it Holy. Going to the Mountains and being outside is a great way to do that, but for me, going to church is a necessary part of keeping the Sabbath. It also helps fill my spiritual canteen that individual prayer and scripture study can't completely fill.
Feeding, exercising, and caring for your spirit, is just as important as the care you give to your physical body. Set aside time to ponder and meditate. Feed your soul today.
Been feeling the late summer burnout and haven't posted in a while, work has been pretty relentless the last month and I haven't been able to get outdoors much. Got some hiking in yesterday and then nature decided to give us a good fall blizzard...so I had to get up to Silver Lake and do some snow angels. Not to often do you see almost a foot of pow in September!
Been a long hot summer, unfortunately the weather and timing hasn't been great so I doubt I'll get any more Milky Way shots this year :( . But with the colder temps and longer nights I should be able to get out my telescope and start shooting some deep space objects.
It's snowing in Salt Lake City, and we're dreaming of Zion!
We love every season, but summer flew by way too fast this year, agree?
Hope everyone had a great weekend, and we look forward to a new week — we're still new to IG but are always looking for new features. Tag us or use #wanderinutah to be featured! ❤️✅
Confession: I am an introvert through and through - my Myers-Briggs is INFJ. On a Friday night you can find me holed up with my pup and a good book instead of out at a party. I love social media because I can always think about what I say before I say it. If you meet me in real life, you'll find out how quiet and contemplative I can be (contrary to my sometimes chatty Instagram stories 😉). But that being said, I love meeting new people and having new adventures! So tell me what your personality type is and for good measure, your favorite fall hike and if I can join you on it. 😁
