Philip found a sinkhole via satellite images! Does it go?!
Kind of. . . You could see a small sliver of light throughout the whole passage, so it wasn’t truly a cave. But, none the less, a very fascinating geologic find. Probably our favorite sea cave we’ve ever seen. We did however find a troglossen. There was a sea otter playing around in the cave.
Troglossen: an animal that ends up living in a cave by chance and has never adapted to actual cave life.
I don't think I'll love anything as much as the isolation of the forest.
Trust the wait, embrace the uncertainty, and enjoy the beauty of becoming.
Extend yourself some grace and embrace where you are. And remember when nothing is certain, anything is possible.
I have worked hard, really hard, so I dont suffer from a case of the Mondays.
I have instituted Sunday night routines.
I have meal prepped when everyone else stays out.
I have gone to bed at 8 p.m. on Sundays.
I have missed out on a lot of social events because I wanted to rock Monday.
And now I have a career that lets me do this on Monday nights with the man I love.
Sometimes it takes years to see the benefits of hard work. And at times it can feel defeating. It can be hard to see any progress at all. We start to wonder why we put in all the time, effort, and sacrifices.
But let us remember that hard work sometimes acts like bamboo.
It takes committed watering, after watering, after watering to see results.
It can take years of time, effort, and sacrifices to see any results.
Sometimes, those results manifest as the freedom to do what you love, live where you love, with who you love.
Sometimes, those results are glistening gray skies that magnify the bright yellow wildflowers set against a beautiful mountain range.
Sometimes those results are the best Monday happy hour a girl could ask for.
This girl is going to keep on watering.

Awesome day off! Climbed at Grassi in the morning, came home and ate dinner, then climbed at Cougar creek until 10pm. Pretty lucky to have all this just outside our front door!
In this complex world the simple things are still the best. A smile, a sunny day, a walk in the park, horseback riding, a little kitten, a hike in nature, a quiet dinner, a drive to nowhere, a bottle of wine, a TV show, a weekend away, the sunset, a secret place where you can go and a best friend to share it all.

When the inside becomes the outside & all things become fluid! 💧
Never get tired of these views
We had to say goodbye to one of our amazing tour guides this week, but we couldn’t be more excited for her next big adventure. She and her significant other, along with their two pups, have packed their life into a school bus with plans to explore America! Good luck, Jessie! We will miss you immensely! #WildwoodAdventures #IthakaOnWheels #SchoolBusLife
My body: a full night of sleep would be great
Me: let’s go to the mountains
My feet: but what about rest
My body: but please
Me: more :) volcano :) summits :) Successfully summited Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. Baker in five days and am thankful for the most wonderful crew and weather. More photos to come! 😀
When you’re down in these slot canyons, every shade of the most glorious marmalade radiates down and encompasses you. It’s as if you can literally breathe the colors into your body. Around every bend are perfectly shaped tangerine curves, soft and smooth like chalk. The waves of the walls come alive as the sun changes position in the sky, and new designs become illuminated and others shadowed. I used to think green was the most healing color, until I came to the desert and witnessed the scenery catch fire with glaring divinity. I am most certain the color of the next chapter is orange.
