Our first trip to @voyageursnps
won’t be our last. We ventured through Rainy Lake & the surrounding park while living on a houseboat... and it was awesome. We definitely got closer with our friends haha, because of the close quarters & of course experiencing something pretty unique together.
If you ever get a chance to visit Voyageurs National Park, be sure to look up @rainylakehouseboats
as an option for travel & stay. I have a blog post detailing the experience right now in the link in bio.
Wow wow wow, this weekend was magical ✨ To celebrate 4 years of marriage, Adam planned a surprise weekend for us on the Oregon Coast and he NAILED IT! From picking an amazing destination, somehow pulling strings with Mother Nature for incredible weather, choosing a great mix of hikes in the mountains and on the coast, picking an awesome campsite, feeding me tacos and other delicious food, and taking me to cute coffee shops, everything was oh so perfect. 🌊🏕🌮☕️ I normally hate surprises, but I decided to roll with it this weekend and keep every stop a surprise until we showed up at it, which was so much fun, especially as the person who usually plans out our weekends. It was seriously one of the greatest weekends we have had and our cheeks hurt from smiling so much! 😊

After meeting with the magic cat, I continued climbing Mount Ilyas-Kaya.
From all sides the sky was becoming gray, covered by big clouds, visibility was pretty limited. Step by step, I was above the clouds, until I reached the very top with a cross. Everything around was fascinating - the speed with which the clouds floated around, shrouding me with its dense, wet-soft haze, the views that opened up between the clouds and singing birds. Here, at the same time, I felt calm and anxious, because of the clouds, sometimes I could see nothing but a few tens of meters around. I relaxed and just began to breathe, to realize and feel the place. It is really strong.
Here is a quote from the Internet:
The unique mountain Ilyas-Kaya, whose height is 681 meters, magicians and sorcerers are considered to be a kind of antenna that receives and transmits spiritual energy. And esoteric declare that it is not just a mountain, but a heavenly temple, allowing all of humanity to reach a new level of being. The real mandala of the Universe on our planet is sent to people by a higher mind, and the mountain accepts only those whom they have called.
Before visiting the mysterious temple of the Sun in the Crimea, it is necessary to climb to the top, where spiritual purification takes place and a person becomes as pure as a baby. A wonderful panorama of the Black Sea and Laspi Bay opens from the mountain, and next to it there is a natural spring from which you can drink the clear water, relax and go back again.
