hiding from my responsibilities tomorrow. 👀
TUNNEL VIEW The iconic Tunnel View in Yosemite. We didn’t realize how lucky we were to have rain overnight for our first night there. When we got up early the next morning to take our cameras out it provided us with a spectacular blanket of rolling fog in the bottom of the valley and a good amount of water coming out of Bridal Veil Falls. It didn’t give us a nice cloudy and moody sky though. The following couple of days after the rain there was no more fog in the morning and the waterfalls didn’t have a lot of water coming out of them. This photo is before the sun rose enough to shine into the valley, but soon after it did the fog burned off and the lighting conditions became pretty harsh. It definitely takes a little bit of time to figure out the best times for good light, and in a lot of cases it’s mid-day when lighting is fairly even. #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #valleyview #halfdome #northdome #yosemitevalley #tv_nature #tv_landscapes #ignature
First time backpacking into the night and summiting North Dome the next morning. Thanks @ausmorris for adventuring with me #yosemite #northdome #backpacking #adventure #sunrise #whyisitsocoldatnight
Unbelievable views from the top of North Dome. Definitely worth the 9+ miles of hiking if you include the Indian Ridge which is the only natural arch in Yosemite. Thanks for snapping a 📷of us @treenabee #yosemitenationalpark #nps #nationalparks #findyourpark #goparks #takeahike #neverstopexploring #yosemite #halfdome #northdome #northdometrail #ontherogue
Not all those who wander are lost....Wander a whole summer if you can. Time will not be taken from the sum of life. Instead of shortening, it will definitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal. —JRR Tolkien & John Muir • • • #wanderlust #yosemite #Honeymoon #northdome #nevadafalls #halfdome #porcupineflat #persiancampers #optoutside #girlswhohike #womenwhohikesd #leavenotrace #johnmuir #returntobalance #nps
GLACIER POINT North Dome to the left and Half Dome to the right with Yosemite Valley in between. The view from Glacier Point in Yosemite is spectacular and definitely worth the drive getting up there. We got there just as the sun was starting to set but it would’ve been nice to get up there a little earlier to hang out to be able to enjoy it more. #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #glacierpoint #halfdome #northdome #yosemitevalley #tv_nature #tv_landscapes #ignature
If you've ever wondered what the US equivalent of a trig pillar is, this is the closest thing I've found... A small metal disc set into the summit of North Dome. The peak gives great views of Half Dome and the Yosemite Valley #hiking #peakbagging #trig #ordnancesurvey #nerd #yosemite #northdome #californiaadventure
💋 Fun fact about me: Growing up I spent about 4 summers in Yosemite as a backpacking intern, which is something I’m very proud of! In that time I learned that I can survive out in the middle of nowhere, without a phone, Starbucks or pizza. Crazy right?! 😱 Being outside in places like this, helps me handle my anxiety. It reminds me that when things seem overwhelming they aren’t really that big at all. I mean look at this photo! That’s half dome, that’s a real place, and it’s huge. (No not just a default computer background.) 💻 📸 @civisummit
Hiked 11 miles in the Triple whites 👟 🏞
Such a glorious weekend away with @lecoolbeans. Thank you for letting me escape the hustle and bustle and also thanks for dragging my ass on such an intense hike #yosemitenationalpark #northdome #elportal
Good Morning
Backpacking trip day 1! Hike down to north dome with our bear canister. Look at pretty views, met some Catalan rock climbers who've just made it up to the top at dusk. Camp on pretty cliff overlooking the valley. We didn't expect to get a same day backpacking permit but we got one and headed out asap. We misgaged the distance to north dome and the prevalence of signage so we may have trekked around 8 miles #momsspaghetti on day 1. #yosemite #backpacking #northdome #bearcanister #woooo with @starchild_rn
You make me want to jump!!!! #getoutside #yosemite #northdome
What a day!! A route that’s been long on the list to do... Crest Jewel, 5.10a. Quoted as being the best route of its type on the planet. 10 pitches up a huge sea of granite. Absolutely amazing, friction slab climbing at its very best!! One of our top routes ever 👍👍👍 ... #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #crestjewel #northdome #tuolumne #tuolumnemeadows #california #climbing #climbinginspiration #sportclimbing #slabclimbing #bestrouteyet #happypeople #adventures #halfdome #halfdomeyosemite #getoutside #climbing_pictures_of_instagram
I often get frustrated that I’m not being productive enough in the day. 🍍 However when this thought creeps up I have to remind myself that that’s just anxiety talking to me. 🍍 Usually I’ve done more than enough and have been extremely productive throughout the day and have no reason to be upset. I often have very high expectations of myself that are bordering on unrealistic and when I don’t meet them I am extremely hard on myself. 🍍 I have to remind myself that I’m human and that not every single day is going to be a perfect shining emblem of productivity. And that is OK. 🍍 Nobody is going to die because I didn’t meet my productivity goals on any given day. The only person who is disappointed by it is myself. So putting it into perspective and seeing that you’re really isn’t that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things makes me realize that I don’t need to be upset and that I should instead spend my energy on being happy. 🍍 I instead focus on the things I did get done and the things I did do well throughout the day, instead of solely focusing on everything I didn’t get done. 🍍 This makes me feel accomplished instead of disappointed and gives me a better perspective on how much I’ve actually completed. 🍍 What do you do when anxiety creeps in?
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going 🚶🏻‍♂️
We got an Altitude Adjustment @midland It's not Colorado but Yosemite is pretty awesome too #yosemite #glacierpoint #granite #glacier #vernalfalls #nevadafalls #northdome #waterfalls
Thank you @yosemitenps for an incredible 5 nights. Never been more spoilt with amazing options for places to pitch a tent...but this has to be one of the best. . . #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #northdome #california #us #roadtrip #camping #hiking #discoverglobe #wilderness #landscape #landscapephotography #outdoors
"Walk lightly." Lightly my deer. 🐜 #yosemite #northdome #hike #happyplace #aldoushuxley #poet #aldoushuxleyisland #sunday #weekend #potd #deer #wildlife #usa #california #roadtrip #camping #outdoorsy #smores #sequoia #dome #halfdome #pines #mountains #altitude This chance encounter in Yosemite reminded me of Huxleys' rather stoic "Island" poem: "Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me. (...) So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling, on tiptoes and no luggage, not even a sponge bag, completely unencumbered.” #stoicism #philosophy #qotd #poet #poem #aldoushuxley #island
Witnessing nature from this perspective sure has a way of humbling you. Photo creds @zint_thad #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #photography #nature #hiking #adventure #california #northdome
North Dome was one of those spots that I never really thought I’d cross off my list.. But on Saturday, after sitting alongside El Cap Meadow debating what to do that afternoon, @jgleit and I figured we’d go for it. 5 hours, 10 miles of hiking, and a small rainstorm later, we checked it off the list. It’s quite a humbling experience standing face to face with Half Dome. Can’t wait to make it back ⛰
Hike more. Worry less. #yosemite #northdome #halfdome
Still in Yosemite, enjoying the sky full of stars. We hiked towards the top of North Dome, 10 miles away from the civilization. Campfire is out, we ate dehydrated food and sausages, no sign of any bears in the area, temperature close to freezing. It's time to sleep. ✨🔥🐻😴 • Toujours au Yosemite à profiter du ciel plein d'étoiles. Nous avons marché vers le sommet de North Dome, à 16 kilomètre de toute civilisation. Le feu de camp est éteint, nous avons mangé de la nourriture déshydratée et des saucisses, aucun signe d'ours dans la coin, température proche de zéro. C'est l'heure de dormir ✨🔥🐻😴 • • • #us #usa #california #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nationalpark #mirrorlake #snowcreek #northdome #fall #autumn #sunset #halfdome #backpacking #hike #mountains #stars #sky #milkyway #night #tent #wallpaper #geocaching #earthcache #virtualcache #nofilter #picoftheday #colorful
#halfdome is always with us on this trip, from #northdome yesterday, while #bushwacking up Watkins today, and from its moonlike summit with no other humans in sight! 🙌🖤🌲⛰ #highonlife #amyruns48whites @wildlandtrekking
Trekking 👟🎒
We hiked it! Nous avons marché dans le Yosemite jusqu'à North Dome au cours d'une randonnée de deux jours avec les tentes sur le dos. Nous avons monté le campament à 2500 mètres d'altitude avec vue sur Half Dome. Pile à l'heure pour le coucher du soleil. 🚶🌄 • • • #us #usa #california #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nationalpark #mirrorlake #snowcreek #northdome #fall #autumn #sunset #halfdome #backpacking #hike #mountains #geocaching #earthcache #virtualcache #nofilter #picoftheday #colorful

The backcountry of Yosemite is nothing short of majestic! 3 days, 20 miles, 5,000 ft of elevation, the tallest waterfall in the US, indescribable beauty, and the best hiking partners I could ask for. So grateful for places and moments like these. 🏕💙💚 . #yosemite #camping #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitefalls #yosemitevalley #northdome #halfdome #snowcreek #mirrorlake #upperyosemitefalls #california #nationalpark #nps #goparks #nationalparkgeek #americasbestidea #backcountry #livesimply #optoutside #exploremore #sayyestoadventures
Adventure truly is out there. 🍍 Unfortunately, some people’s adventures recently are taking away from the land that we are all supposed to be able to enjoy. 🍍 Two national parks have recently been defaced, and this is truly upsetting and alarming. 🍍 This earth has been here longer than any of us can even fathom, and will continue to be here long after we are dust in the wind. The audacity it takes to ruin something that has nourished and nurtured us for so long is baffling. 🍍 To support conservation parks projects, you can get apparel from @theparksapparel. The clothes are insanely comfy and light- perfect for treks. 🍍 Take care of our land. Love it. Cherish it. Enjoy it, and go adventure. 🍍
Taking it back to one of the best moments I shared with you this last summer. My life has been so much better since I meet you. I appreciate all you do for me ❤️I love you to the moon and back 💞🏞 #nationalboyfriendday #makesmehappy #myhandsome #memoriestolastalifetime #yosemite #halfdome #northdome #hikingadventures #takemeback
Absolutely in love with this place 💚 #basketdome #northdome #allmypicsareofhalfdome
🏕 Missing this fantastic camping view of Half Dome and that wonderful mountain wildnerness smell. So stoked that we have our next Yosemite camping trip planned! We’ve never been during the fall and there’s a chance we’ll see some snow. Can’t wait because we’ve been itching to go camping again! We will be busy beautifying the park with the Northern California Peace Corps Association. However, we will definitely make time at sunrise and sunset for photography!

‘The Land Before Time’ ...the massive scale of this place and inspiration you get here, for me, is hard to put into words. truly something you just need to feel for yourself @yosemitenps
