Nashville, you sparkle so pretty in the sunshine. ✨😍☀️💎
I’ve been up since 4 AM and I’m hangin on by a thread here. I am so thankful I got to be here for 20 days. I leave here having explored the mountains, heard the ocean waves, and eaten more donuts than is socially appropriate. Every time I visit here Nashville feels less and less like home. Here’s to hoping my heart remains full from this experience and that I’ll be back sooner than I think.
You're so pretty😍
Passing of another climbing legend yesterday, Jim Bridwell, icon of the Golden Age of climbing in Yosemite Valley .... more than 100 first ascents .... pictured (center) in this infamous climbing photo. Rest easy, Jim.

Y’all, I’m a little late to the party, but I was in need of a new rug by my back door & a quick google search took me to JCP where this lovely and Foo Dog rug (swipe to 👀) are on sale for like $26ish! 🏃🏻♀️💨 if you love a bargain! 💙💙
Some days the view is 360°, some days total rain with views of the inside of clouds .... but, always worth the trip, always beautiful.

Two weeks ago coming across the Smokies, a total frosting of ice .... yesterday, socked in with rain.
Pretty none the less.
All the rain the night before not only made for a peaceful night of sleep, it also gave the water a beautiful milky tone to compliment its turquoise color.
Pretty sure he knows how awesome his tail is.
My favorite dude in my favorite place.
This moment was one of accomplishment.
The prior day’s hike out of the valley and up the ridge, for its duration and steepness, turned out to be one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I’m sure with conditioning and repetition it will become second nature, but I was inexperienced and underprepared.
It was an absolutely brutal climb but we made it. The following day’s hike presented many opportunities like this to tower over the valley in accomplishment. Can’t wait to do it again.
