Photography has taught me an important lesson: never fail to look at things from multiple perspectives. Beyond picture-taking, this is one lesson that I think will enrich my life for as long as I practice it. #inquisitivesouls
Took on my fear of heights today and climbed Angels Landing (that big rock formation you see before you)💪💪💪It was a giant clusterfuck of people trying to climb up and down steep trails with sheer drop-offs on both sides but no one fell off the cliff and I didn’t have a panic attack and that’s really all I can ask for.
Waking up early the morning after Thanksgiving and I get rewarded with a great sunrise over the Hyrum Dam. I set my alarm for earlier to find a specific location, but when I looked out it was all overcast, so I laid back down. After about 30 minutes I look again and the clouds had moved, so I raced out to a see what I would find. Glad I did.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving (for those that celebrate) and that everyone can get out and enjoy nature today!
I've just found my Dad's travel journal from his wanderings in Australia and New Zealand over 37 years ago.

Arthur's Pass, NZ: "In oneself lies the whole world, and if you know how to look, then the door is there; And the key is in your hand. Nobody on Earth can give you either that key or the door to open -- except yourself." This photo is from time we shared yesterday exploring a new to us hike in Zion.
Today was the third time I've participated in #optoutside , with many, many more to come. This year, I also did a little trail cleanup on the way. I love that REI's movement to get people outside is getting bigger and bigger - I fully believe that the outdoors makes life better for anyone and everyone. But with more people out there, the more we need to be aware of the impact we have on the environment. Remember to pack out your trash and drink from a reusable water bottle (I picked up SO many plastic bottles today). It's important. #impactfriday#letskeepitwild
Hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving! What did you do to get outside today?
