Everyone person is the exact center of their own visible universe
Finally some rest after a looooong week. Cardiac OR nursing is awesome but it sometimes keeps you at work for a 13hr day when you weren't expecting it. This weekend won't be spent in the mountains (everyone needs some family and baby-nephew time when they can get it) but part of me is always itching to get out there.
Crater Lake’s epic Milky Way 🌌
Grant me the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me (said the Eneagram type 6...)
Star-light star-bright all the stars I see tonight. I couldn’t ask to live in a better place than the Pacific Northwest. .
It’s been a while since I posted and that’s because I have been savoring the last bit of summer outside and experiencing life for what it can be.
Yesterday we through-hiked the Enchantments - almost 19.7 miles, some very unfortunate mishaps and lots of larches later we're back. 🔸The Enchantments was one of my first backpacking trips and I've brought friends back to it because it really is like no other place.
In the past I've taken multiple days (4!) to go through this granite wonderland and the thought of trying to make it in a day seemed crazy. (which it was at the time - but keep at it friends. Your body and mind will surprise you if you put in the miles) We did it! 🔸that said the whole trip is a bit marred by a party separation and a healthy dose of lack of communication (mostly on my end - we know what happens when you assume) but it all turned out ok in the end and I'm not going anywhere without my radios from now on. I also owe another through hike to Kim and Karl 😬
🔸Looking forward to trying some more climbs up in this area in the future. Prusik peak I'm coming for you!
Went for a great long hike today.
Is it scarf weather yet? 🌲
Itll you could go back in time and tell your childhood self one thing what would it be?
