Ever since my first time up on this mountain I’ve wanted to shoot the night sky from here. Finally had the chance a few weeks ago!
This 169-foot Tulip Tree in Shu Swamp Reserve is believed to be the tallest tree in New York State. It is 100-years-old and has a trunk that sits at 34 inches in diameter. There are no official records in New York State regarding tree height, although the Department of Environmental Conservation does keep a Big Tree Register with "Champions" based on height, trunk circumference and crown spread.

Sunset at Lake Ronkonkoma
Even when it’s not a “good sunset” it is still a good sunset.

Our little spot in the woods for the night 🏕
“Wings are like dreams. Before each flight, a bird takes a small jump, a leap of faith, believing that its wings will work. That jump can only be made with rock solid feet.” ― J.R. Rim
Quick dip on our trip yesterday! 🌞🌿💦
A misty morning on the Mohawk River.
This father goat was watching me like I used to watch my anime 😅😂👍🏼👍🏼 hope everyone’s having a good start to their week!!
I just want a cookies n’ cream cupcake right now, but I don’t have any with me, so I’ll compromise with cookies n’ cream ice cream 😋
What desserts did/will/would you have at your wedding?!
But if I had a shotgun, you know what I'd do? I'd point that shit straight at the sky and shoot heaven on down for you... #sublime
There’s something about a late August evening in the woods. The sun went down and brought the noise of day. I listened to the silence as it broke by screech owls in the distance.
Perfect "work" day, teaching students on the lake.
Looking north at Black Rock Forest and Schunemunk Mountain from my favorite vantage point on Butter Hill, a 270° masterpiece of a lookout.
I have a love/hate relationship with hiking. The adventure and experience is always wonderful until I reach the summit, but it usually goes downhill from there
And above all,
watch with glittering
eyes the whole
world around you
because the greatest
secrets are always
hidden on the most
Those who don't
believe in magic
will never find it.
