When everything is spinning out of control and you can't keep up, take a moment. Take a breath. Feel the ground beneath you, supporting you, and the sky above you, accepting you for who you are. Touch the rock, smell the leaves. Take another breath. You are enough. You are loved. You will get through this. You are strong. Stronger than you think. #yogakeepsmesane #desolationlookout #mountainyoga #instagramhusbanding #fallhike #beUTAHful #wasatchfront #flippeddog #wildthing #wowutah #millcreekcanyon #SLC #homesick #mountains #breathe
This past weekend we visited Desolation Butte Lookout in Umatilla Nat'l Forest. Mike, the lookout, invited us up the 70' tower and showed us around the small cabin at the top. Ever inquisitive, Henry learned that the tower was built in 1961 to replace an older tower from the 20's. As we were taking in the impressive view Henry noticed a small plume of smoke on a distant ridge. Sure enough Mike agreed that it was the start of a fire and he sprang into action determining its coordinates to call it in. We left Mike to do his job uninterrupted and continued on our journey. Once back home, I received a msg that Mike had tracked me down at WebCyclery to tell us that the fire had been named The Henry Incident due to Henry's impressive spotting abilities. He went on to offer Henry a job, but realized that child labor laws might complicate things. Henry was stoked needless to say. It was a great wrap up to our weekend in eastern Oregon, and Henry thinks maybe he has found a careerpath. #desolationlookout #easternoregon #teamweidenkeller #getyoursmokeyon
Good thing I ran 9 miles this morning to warm up my legs to go up and down this tower a bunch of times.. Got assigned to work as the fire lookout relief at Desolation Tower today ✌ #accidentaldoublePTtodaywhoopsohwell #mylegsaretoastsendhalp #viewsfordays #somuchneatnessinoneplace #ilovemyjob #evenonderpylightduty #wildlandfire #firelookouttower #desolationlookout
The best July I've had in a long time. Here's to hoping the change that I initiated in my life continues in a positive direction! I'm not as hardcore as those thru hikers that go for months on end, but I had a sweet taste of freedom for almost a month. "I am the master of my fate, my destiny I control" -Earth Crisis
Desolation Lookout. Third lookout we've tracked down this weekend. Hoping to get to two more before we head home. This one had the best view so far! #desolationlookout #lookouttower #firetower #easternoregon #grantcounty #exploregon #highplaces #theviewwasstunning #thingsishouldnthaveclimbedbutdid
