A day at the office ... I can’t express how humbled I feel to work at not only one of the arguably MOST important observatories in the world, but with the top astronomers in the world as well. The STEM program that I get to coordinate and direct is truly so awesome I literally wish it existed when I was a kid. #womeninSTEM #stemeducation #astronomy #geology #science #education #observatories #sangabrielmountains
Another edition of Goldie standing on rocks. We’ve got it down pat. #eatoncanyon #sangabrielmountains
Testing out my new setup on some friendly neighbors. From rabbits & squirrels, to coyotes & mountain lions, Los Angeles is an extraordinary mix of urban & wild. Hoping to photograph some more urban critters in the coming months. LA friends- if you see wildlife frequenting your area, let me know!
Epic backpacking trip from 2.5 weeks ago. Filled with semi-lost nighttime hiking and @soohahahan ’s shoes falling apart after 2 miles #SanGabrielMountains #AngelesNationalForest
If you dig it, they will come. So I did a little digging and scooping, to help create a tiny pool for the wildlife to enjoy. #owl #bobcat #water #wildlife #sangabrielmountains #angelesnationalforest #reconyx #trailcamera #greathornedowl #birds #lynx #outdoors #nature #bath #birdbath
So I have taken my @elecraft_ KX2 out on a SOTA Activation with the Side KX protection gear attached. This product is slick! Super protective and makes it easier to pack for the hike. @sidekx_gems nice work!
PSA: Do this hike!!! 10 miles. It’s awesome. Wear sunscreen 🙈 . . . #BridgetoNowhere #SanGabrielMountains #freakingbeautiful
What happens when your physiology faces certain death and you live to talk about it? • #FLOW • Jumping off a bridge sparked the most PROFOUND, sustained #FlowState I’ve ever experienced. • The cocktail of neurochemicals that were released directly lead to the founding of @themysticmisfits. • 🚀 • I keep throwing this #Bungee Jump Camping Trip for the following reasons: • ✅Every time I defy death by jumping off The #BridgeToNowhere , I leave on FIRE 🔥 • ✅Recalibrating to my primal roots in the beautiful nature of the #SanGabrielMountains reminds me of my PURPOSE (and a #PolarPlunge helps 💦) • ✅Doing all of this with a BADASS group of people leaves me feeling supported and CONNECTED to community. • 💥MAY 19 - 20 | LOS ANGELES, CA💥 • Throwback to last years trip (sometimes I cringe at how I’ve ‘performed’ on camera in the past 🙈)
This Saturday 9-11am! Join Wildlife Educator Dana Stangel of Teranga Ranch as we learn more about our coyote neighbors. We’ll explore natural history of the urban coyote and we'll talk about the current situation regarding coyotes, pets and backyards. We'll also demonstrate various humane hazing techniques and we’ll have some backyard wildlife deterrents on hand for show and tell. #lacrescenta #lacanadaflintridge #pasadena #sangabrielmountains #foothills #livingwithwildlife #urban #coyotes #terangaranch #rosemontpreserve

4/20 camping trip was pretty awesome, definitely a weekend to remember. I learned that I will never pass up an oportunity to strike a vapenaysh pose, as it is now my dream to vape across the naysh.

I enjoy the view from the dental chair and the 80s vibe of my dentist’s office. Besides the dated art prints (I would switch them out for original art), this decor has come back around. And that mirrored pillar... razzle dazzle! • #dentist #dentistoffice #80sdesign #interiordesign #officedecor #midcenturymodern #view #officewithaview #sangabrielmountains #lacanada #southerncalifornia #iphoneography

Discovery of the Big Horn Mine - Abandoned hike in LA (new blog) This building was once a working quarters for the miners who worked this gold mine in the early 1900's but today it stands as a relic to a lost age in Los Angeles history. The hike, located in Wrightwood was once taken many times by the workers of the mine. Hike Big Horn Rd. 2 miles to reach the mine, today it is seldom explored by hikers who drive the great distance from the city to hike here. I took this photo in 2017 from my only visit there and had been a place I have not forgotten since. Blog with all details of the hike in the bio link.
Become a “citizen scientist” this Saturday from 9:30-11:30am by uploading your photos to iNaturalist, and by helping us gain a better understanding of the plants, animals, birds, insects and other organisms that live in the Rubio Canyon Preserve. Most importantly, have fun meeting other naturalists, scientists, and curious members of the public in the great outdoors! People of all ages and skill levels are welcome. If you have a smart phone, please bring it with the iNaturalist app downloaded. If you don’t have a smart phone, we’ll teach you how to use your computer to collect data and upload it to the iNaturalist website. Together, we’ll make some science! #altadena #pasadena #rubiocanyon #sangabrielmountains #inaturalist #citynaturechallenge2018 #urbannature #bioblitz #citizenscience
Fun hike today. Went back to the same spot in Glendora. #glendora #sangabrielmountains #nature #hiking #tireswing #tiedye #gratefuldead #flowerchild
Life has taken a major change in the past few days, and before it takes effect, I’m getting some quality time with the sunset in the mountains to ease my racing human mind. This is one of my favorite views of Mount Baldy from the summit of Pine Mountain. The saunter was a whopping 4300 feet gain and 8 miles total from my mountain home here in Wrightwood. #sunset #sunsetselfie #sunsetmeditation #sangabrielmountains #sheepmountainwilderness #sangabrielmountainsnationalmonument #pinemountain #northbackbonetrail #mountbaldy #lamountains

If you love waterfalls you have to check out Lewis Falls Trail. Not only is this 30 foot waterfall a gratifying reward, but all along the hike you‘ll run into multiple waterfalls ranging from 3 to 15 ft. Keep an eye on the creek throughout your journey and you’ll notice somebody built a small wooden bridge to cross the creek. This will allow you to obtain a better view of a beautiful 15 ft triple waterfall. It’s only 0.8 miles to Lewis falls and back so get out there before our waterfalls begin to dry! 💪🏼 . . . . . . . . . . #hiking #mountains #nature #waterfall #creek #trail #getoutside #asuzacanyon #naturephotography #socal #california #losangeles #la #adventure #outdoors #sangabrielmountains #escape #cahikingadventures #water #fellowship #lewisfalls #scenic #photography

Hot off the press!!! 8:12 this morning, two and a half hours before I showed up, this big fluffy bear passed by my "Sunset Ridge" camera. I did notice fresh bear tracks on the trail, but I didn't know they were that fresh! #bear #blackbear #wildlife #bears #ursine #teddybear #wildlife #wildlifephotography #photography #sangabrielmountains #angelesnationalforest #outdoors #nature #hiking #california #instagood #animalsofinstagram
I love you SoCal & your fault-bounded block of ancient crystalline rocks that I get to hike #sangabrielmountains #cucamongapeak #angelesforest
Today marks 3 years since the universe spared your soul. The scars you were so self conscious about have started to fade and you’ve been working hard to get back in shape. You sometimes still have some self-doubt but inside you know you’re destined for greatness. You have support from some amazing people, strangers hear your story and can’t help but root for you. They say depression comes from living in the past, and anxiety from living in the future. Peace is obtained by being present. I’m so proud of you learning how to master living in the now. Everyday you’re growing mentally, physically, spiritually- whether you feel it in the moment or not. Stay happy, stay hungry, stay focused. Keep these bitches mad. Happy rebirth day 🌱🌤💃🏼🌸✨👸🏼🔨💸💡📈🦅😇💖🌠 #earthday #survivor #artemis #takingbackmylife #blessed #grateful #hiking #nature #instafitness #weightlifting #bodybuilding #girlswholift #cardio #morelike #cardino #scenicroute #sangabrielmountains #sgv #heelstretch #bowandarrow #tilt #ok
