Spent the entire day at Yosemite! When I was younger I read this book called “The Big Tree” It was about this giant and old tree who recounted all of the things she saw in her really long life. It was my FAVORITE BOOK 📚 I would rent it from the little school library over and over and reread it. Seeing the Sequoia trees today had me feeling ultra nostalgic ❤️ I’m definitely gonna read the book again when I get home 📖 Headed back to SF now and I’m mega sunburnt and exhausted but it was an AMAZING day ☀️☀️
There are times where you are forced to start over or go in a direction you never imagined. I’ve come to learn that these are biggest seasons of growth. This doesn’t mean something is wrong you, life is ever changing. We get stronger overcoming our mountains and battles. 🏔
To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

Pileated woodpeckers are the largest woodpecker species found in North America. They use their long, chisel-like bills to drill holes in rotten wood to get at carpenter ants and other insects. The holes they make are usually rectangular and sometimes so deep they even cause small trees to weaken or break in half! 🐜🌲
But even this large, skilled insect hunter has to learn from its parents how to find a meal. In the nest, both parents feed nestlings by regurgitation. Young pileated woodpeckers leave nest 26–28 days after hatching and may remain with their parents for 2–3 months. The juvenile pileated woodpecker in this video is learning to find insects on its own, but still needs some help from its parents.

The Kuna Crest was looking mighty fine during a mid afternoon Sierra storm ⛈️
The contrast of sumptuous dark trees and foliage with the airy, misty veil of water and the shiny granite is another stroke of technical mastery. Remember, this was 1865 – just imagine taking this photo versus our iPhones today! #DepictAoTW #DepictArts

National Park reopened, welcoming visitors back to Yosemite Valley, Wawona and Mariposa Grove after being closed for wildfires in the area. Air quality has been good to moderate in many areas of the park, but it's been unhealthy in #YosemiteValley
. If recreating in Yosemite Valley, reduce prolonged or heavy exertion and take more breaks during outdoor activities. Air quality in Yosemite Valley is often better in the mornings. Beyond Tuesday, August 14, the following closures remain in effect: Wawona Road (continuation of Highway 41) between Wawona and Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point Road, and Merced Grove of Giant Sequoias. Yosemite Valley is only accessible by entering the park via Highways 140 and 120. Photo @yosemitenps

When you finally get the one idea you have on your mind for some time and put it down in ink. California bear with Yosemite as it’s body. Half Dome as the thigh and the Upper Falls as it’s shoulder blade. I love what he did with my idea and concept. #tattoo #bear #yosemite
After years of dreaming, I finally made it to this park. It was closed for the last few weeks because of fires, but thankfully they opened the east entrance just in time for my trip. Many of the west gates are still closed and I had to go see why!
Left for riches, right for memories. You choose.
