Ever since I got my new lens, all the macro/telephoto shots I took with my old one just aren’t cutting it for me so I feel very unmotivated to share them. But here’s a recent monarch trio from the new lens, so so so happy with it @canonusa @bhphoto #canon100400ii
Some pics from my recent romp through the mountains. The Peak 50k turned out to be much more of a challenge than expected... I really had to fight hard to hold off some strong dudes at the end! Super stoked with a 4th place finish! #thepeak50k #cuyamacapeak #ultrarunning
Finished my 4th half marathon at the #cuyamacapeak
this was by far the hardest most excruciating run of all.. temperatures reached 90 and I was getting sick, my water supply was very limited, suffered major blisters on my toes and possibly a tweaked pinkie toe, and even cried and prayed while on the trail for fear of not being able to finish but I can’t believe out of all that I survived and made it to the finish line!! #GodIsGood #PeakHalfMarathon #13MilesAintNoThing #HumbleBrag #Summer2018 #INeedABeer
When your kid goes to Julian during winter season and he brings you back a "SNOWBALL" instead of a Julian Pie!!!!.... #wintertime #julian #snow #snowballs #play
..... Preston and my son will brought me back a large snowball when they went to Julian, it didn't dawn on them i guess, that maybe I wanted one of those savory delicious apple pies from Julian.... Haha.. that was an awesome day having a snowball in my back yard!!!!! #julianmountains #cuyamacapeak #cuyamaca
Hiking to the second highest peak in San Diego County is no easy task. Cam’s calves almost exploded, Spano could have been killed by a cashew and I got seared.
Here's some cool little snapshots from some outings the past few weeks.
The shadow of stonewall peak casting on cuyamaka peak during a sunrise
A beautiful bloom of yerba mansa (anemopsis californica) overlooks a field of comrades freshly grown from a widening underground river
Railings reflecting the first glowing signs of sunlight on stonewall peak
And finally: termites swarming outside their hive, which is coincidentally...stonewall peak.
Dont forget to #getoutside
and find the countless slices of heaven there are to be found...should you take the time to look.
Creating memories with you ⛺️⛰✨🌻
It's a Monday but I am thankful to be alive and well. Right now, I am at work, like the rest of society, but I am wishing I was back on top of #cuyamacapeak
taking in the sights and breathing the fresh air. I am daydreaming of the next time we will be enjoying the peak for all its splendor, but for now I am focusing on the week ahead. Monday's are great for a fresh start and to just be grateful to be alive, and I am soaking up every second of it. Have a great week everyone! 💕🌲🌍
Grateful for our state and national parks and the space they preserve for us to experience nature. Grateful for the beauty of this earth and the sky. Grateful for camping and spending time outdoors with family and friends. #gratitudejournal #naturelover #cuyamacapeak
Today life took us 6500 ft. up a mountain. This was the first BIG hike that Calvin and I have completed and although it was rough, the view was well worth it. Being able to move my body and have the ability to experience what I did today is hard to put into words, but it is the closest I have felt to nature and myself in a long time. I am learning that trying new things and getting out of your comfort zone is rewarding and being able to escape the ordinary and completely lose oneself in the whispers of the trees and the chattering of the animals is humbling and exciting. I am becoming rather fond of these adventures and constantly searching for the next one that makes me feel alive. 🌲🍂🌾
