Usually tunnel view is swarming with people. One pro of the government shutdown was being able to have a quiet moment together at this beautiful spot.
Gonna put that trad rack to good use in 2019. Gonna put it to good use indeed ;)
2019 • Decided to give my photos some more ❤️. I’ll be trying to tell more complete stories by publishing some projects on Behance.
For my first project, I went back 1 1/2 year ago and dug into my pics from our journey inside the Yosemite park. Check it out, and let me know what you think. Link in bio.
Happy Birthday to my dear daughter, Alia, a beautiful, intelligent and adventurous young woman wo is still willing to explore the world with her father. You are a joy! #birthday #24 #halfdome
This time last year, I made a decision. I decided to make shit happen. For months I had been "meh". I hated my job, I was feeling uninspired and unmotivated and just generally awful. So, I made a decision to fix it. I forced myself to apply for jobs. To write even though no one was reading it. To immerse myself in wedding planning.
It sucked at first. I still felt all those things, I didn't feel a renewed sense of motivation. I was just forcing myself to work towards a goal instead of watching Netflix six hours a night.
And you know what? Within weeks I realized that I loved wedding planning and it was something I looked forward to. Within a month, I had my first paid blogging gig. Within sixty days, I had a new job.
And suddenly, my whole life flipped.
It is HARD to change. Even when you're miserable, it's easier to be miserable than to change. It takes willpower and it takes work and it takes telling yourself no and kicking yourself in the butt, but change really is simple. You just have to make a choice.
Endless views of the high Sierra and Yosemite valley. Yosemite is where the father of the national parks met with U.S president Thedore Roosevelt. They camped under the stars in Yosemite and thus created the worlds 1st national parks system.
I skipped a summer at this place and it already feels since forever that I’ve visited the park. Skipped because of wildfires 😒. Until next time. #yosemite #halfdome #tbt #outdoors
Taft Point📍11.20.18🔹one of the best days of the year 🥰
Tissiak, the Ahwahneechee name for Half Dome. Look closely and you can see her tears. Those tears are more deserved now than ever. #yosemitenationalpark #halfdome
DAY 1 | Standing on top of Half Dome 5 years ago was one of the most surreal moments we had ever experienced ⛰🏞😮. Before Half Dome we had never done any hike longer than 5 miles, but we were captivated by the idea of climbing to the top of such an iconic mountain. 13 hours and 17 grueling miles later, we finished the hardest (still to this date 😅) and most awe-inspiring day-hike we had ever done, barely able to take another step 😵. But out of that day, a desire was born to explore the most beautiful places this earth has to offer, and "press on" (our last name 😂) through any challenges standing in our way 💪🏼. Thank you Half Dome for kicking off this amazing journey for us, and we hope to see you again someday 😉🤙🏼!
Should I go back this summer? Are you planning on visiting Yosemite?
Throwback! Time flies, I have a hard time believing this was 2 years ago, my first trip to Yosemite. I making plans for this spring and summer. There is a shot I have in my head that I want to make here in the back country.
This was going to be transferred on to linoleum today, but unfortunately my blocks were damaged when they got to me from Blick, so it will have to wait until I can get three new 12’x18’ blocks 😭so for now I will spend my time tweaking it on paper instead of linoleum 👍🏼 @thedirtyhippiedesignco
