ALGORITHM ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who goes there to predict the future as the mind that was my own gets less and less my own? Aren’t the markets really unknown? Don’t our choices at some turn become one and the same as the choice-anticipators’ always hidden face? And why these particular options? Whatever choices you’re presented with, if you’re questioning, you’re afraid, and to be human in this way is to disrupt the signal which eludes us. Me, I am just another walker on this earth but revere the music in the skull that will not soundtrack the engine. The engine will tell you whom to love, spit out random consolations. Shouldn’t my love be for the loneliest, always? Shouldn’t the consoling be my attention? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: Impossible to describe how hard I fell in love with this place.

"It is a paradox rooted in the dream that many of us share of immersing ourselves so deeply, so inextricably, into a pocket of landscape, or a stretch of river - anything that seems to embody the wildness we have lost - that we may somehow take possession of these places and make them ours. Yet the truth, like an eddy, runs in the opposite direction. In the end, it is they that claim us. And we who belong to them." - The Emerald Mile (read this book, it's amazing) . . . . . . #canyoning #canyons #slotcanyon #canyonporn #canyoneering #desertrats #vanlifediaries #beautahful #lifeelevated #wowutah #igutah #vanlifeexplorers #vanlife #roamtheplanet #imlaycanyongear @imlaycanyongear #homeiswhereyouparkit #sheexplores #sheadventures #wildernessculture #adventurephotography #discoverearth #goexplore #rawnature #canyonclub #canyonphotography #womenwhocanyoneer #canyoneeringadventure #igsouthwest

expose yourself to your deepest fear. after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. you are free.🦋 channeled the #lizardking as I was hiking in the desert for the first time today. 🌵shout out to those remaining vulnerable to #breakonthrough 🌈. . . #instagramaz #lifeisgoodArizona #arizona #exploreaz #arizonalife #visitaz #visitarizona #exploreArizona #arizonacollective #exploreaz #az365 #arizonahighways #igstucson #azculture #oh_arizona #igsouthwest #Arizona_landscapes #Arizonaisgorgeous #instagood #landscape #photography #abc15 #exploreaz #hikeaz #Arizonalife #kgun9 #tucson #wanderlust
"We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything-what a waste!" -Andre Aciman
On a scale of 1-10 I love art museums at a 12. Mimbres pottery from the American Southwest • • • The Mimbres people created this pottery under the influence of Datura flower. Datura contains powerful alkaloids that cause altered states of consciousness when ingested. Many shapes painted on Mimbres bowls seem to be consistent with the visions reportedly produced by ingesting datura, such as zigzags, spirals and nested circles or rectangles. WOW ART IS COOL.
I hope you all have as an amazing weekend as mine is shaping up to be. In June of 2017 my mac desktop died and along with it I lost all the original photos I'd taken since the previous February. Today I got them all back. I just finished looking through them and all the days came rushing over me, all the happiness and a bit of hurt, but wonderful images from of some the best months of my life. It all seems a bit surreal that I was behind the lens with so many ridiculously rad people and places. Like it couldn't have happened to me. I'm overwhelmed with joy. ⛰ Here's two of those rad people, @yellowkimber and her partner Blair, captured at 6:48:08 pm on April 29, 2017.

#fbf where I learned the most important rule of hiking: never pass up an opportunity to pee. Last time I hiked up to the top it was a 17mi RT hike which took about 9hrs. I’m headed here this weekend for the 9mi, gonna attempt to catch the sunrise ☀️ • • • • • • • • • • • • #fitness #hikeaz #explore #BeOn12 #arizonahiking #explorearizona #arizonafamily #arizona #HAZ #hiking #hike #arizonahiking #letskeepitwild #leavenotrace #exploring #abc15 #earthday #theeverygirl #peoplescreative #proptoit #photosinbetween #arizonacollective #womenwhoexplorearizona #igsouthwest #keepnaturewild

I encountered the same elk two days in a row!

I was looking through my Sedona images from last year and found that this one is still among my favorites. I just think this tree has so much personality.

🦎 "As carnivores, Gila monsters do not have very good eyesight; when they hunt, they use their senses of taste and smell. To track prey, the Gila monster flicks its forked tongue out to pick up scent particles in the air. These lizards are not very fast, so they need to sneak up on animals and bite them before they get away. Their prey includes birds’ eggs and nestlings, rodents, frogs, lizards, insects, centipedes, and worms; they may also eat carrion." #gilamonster #weroamarizona #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona   #fox10phoenix #Beon12   #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #natgeopix #westbysouthwest #vtbestof18
Being alone in nature does a lot for my soul. Thankful to have been able to step away from working every day, step away from cell phone reception, step away from the heat of summer, and enjoy total silence in cool, wet, gloomy conditions. Found a new favorite spot the other day. I'm flying out for another tour today, but I've been stocking up on the nature photos for you guys, I promise. . . . . . #see_arizona #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #adventurephotography #arizona 🌵 #arizona_landscapes #adventureenthusiasts #adventure_culture #exploreourearth #roamnation #wildernessnation #theearthoutdoors #allaboutadventures #livefolktakeover #forgeyourownpath #letswander #igsouthwest #livefolk #visitarizona #letswander #adventuremore #vscomood #ig_landscapes #agameoftones #keepitwild #vzcomood #ExploreArizona #in2nature #rokinon #canonusa
❄️ Last year on this day, I DMed Karlee back telling her I’d be off work at probably around 2 or 3 at the latest and that we could meet up then and go hike like we planned. I ended up not getting off work until almost 7. In that time, it had also gotten super stormy, snowed, and got way cold. Since I’d never met Karzzzzzzz before, and wasn’t sure if she could hang, I asked if she was still down to hike up in the dark and camp up there with a stranger. Since she had idolized me for years and spent the previous year dating a loser, she was way down. Excessively down. So we hiked up in the dark in what felt like a foot of snow. Had to wait on the trail for a while because a family of moose were blocking it. And then finally set up my tent and tried to take star pictures with it while using rocks as a tripod since I forgot mine. Luckily all I forgot was my tripod because I could have been Karlee and forgotten my sleeping pad. She never mentioned her lack of sleeping pad and I didn’t even realize that until the morning. Turns out she got so cold she thought she was going to die, while I was so frickn cozy in my mummy bag and insulated sleeping pad I was borderline sweating. Anyways, here’s some pics from that day. Also, you’re welcome Karlee for letting you borrow my jacket once I found out you had a miserable sleep while we waited a couple hours sitting on a rock waiting for the light to get good for pics. Also @karzzzzzzzz , have fun in the U.K. learning about how to save the world from terrorists and stuff in your grad program. Miss you and wish you were still here to hike with me (even though the last hike we did you got sick after the first mile and fell asleep on a rock for three hours).
Happy Friday!! Since it’s introduction Friday, just thought I would show my face and say hello!! I also want to thank everyone for the love and support on here, I really appreciate it.

Like a ghost, she follows me home. Seeing her face clearly during the night, vividly while I close my eyes. Yet her hollow figure vanishes in daybreak, a subtle escape with infinite shapes, she drapes the morning air without delay or second thought. Caught between elegance and distraught, she trots throughout the earthly sphere. I haven't seen her in years. She is now only a memory, a ghost, prone to disappear.
