Day 2 in Yosemite was just incredible. We really have only explored a tiny portion but it was amazing. I wasn’t brave enough to go the the rails of #taftpoint
which is 7500 feet from the valley floor. Legs like jelly and scrambling about on all fours isn’t really what instagram was made for 😁 so I did a few poses more in keeping with the style. Glacier Point is next level and I really need to come back to explore more. We did a couple of short hikes (not walks because after 2 weeks here I’m practically American) and thankfully I still didn’t meet any bears - the ranger told me that if I did meet one I should just shout and wave my arms... I’m good at that so no worries really 😊 and we made it back in time for more free wine and nibbles...#yosemiteglacierpoint #usaroadtrip #nobearshere #california #oakhurst #thinkimightstayhere

My grandmother has traveled the world. I’m not sure where she has taken these, but I’m joyful to have them on my journeys, discovering new places as she once did for many years. 📷: @isaacibarra1

Even when you’re told you can’t and you believe them, sometimes you need to try. Nothing has been more uplifting for my soul than getting back to my glowy cliffs. Soaking in the rays and breathing with the trees, while the wind sings healing through my hair.
These two came all the way from Australia with their closest friends and family. They dreamt of having their wedding in Yosemite and made it a reality. They landed in SF and just 2 hours in they got 4 backpacks stolen which enclosed passports, wallets, Mac Book Pros, cameras, etc. It was devastating to say the least. What a way to start off in a new country. When we finally met in Yosemite, they expressed such gratitude and kindness. What a lesson to be learned. It’s so easy to let situations take over our emotions, but we are in control. Don’t let someone steal your joy. Always try to pay it forward and express love. As we walked out to Taft Point I became emotional and tears started streaming down my face. I have never seen a sunset like this in my life. Gods creation is mind blowing, this is truly what it’s all about.
Meanwhile waterfall season is over 🙁 here’s another picture from our engagement shoot . Still can’t get over all of the pictures 💗 we are officially 6 months away 💕💕 #optoutside #taftpoint

Yosemite Series_ Taft Point 2017 Throwback
I watched 2 sunsets at Taft Point this weekend it so damn good. This was my favorite obviously 😉 It was unreal! The dreamy glowing light lasted forever. A must do if you’re ever in Yosemite, go experience sunset on top of the valley. 😍
Ok, i just had too much fun with these two and am loving so many photos from this evening that I had to share more. They enjoyed their weekend in the park and climbed royal arches. Yay! 🧗🏼♀️

These past few days were just as they should be. As I have been rediscovering myself I find now that I am climbing faster and faster to the peeks that never end. I will reach the zenith over and over again. Feeling refreshed with the activities I used to do, meeting new friends, keeping the best friends closest, brushing the sage so that I can inhale the goodness it contains and bathing in the waters of this land. Deep breaths of gratitude to God, this land, people and myself. I could say so much about this life that is loved, but I’ll save those thoughts and words for a later day and those who ask and rejoice in this beautiful thing called life and nature. “I believe in the good things comin...” - Nahko Bear
