Walter’s wiggles on the way to Angel’s Landing. A series of 21 switchbacks designed by Walter Ruesch in order to share the majesty of Angel’s Landing with others. Seriously so crowded, but worth ALL the hype.
I'm Glad It's Summer 😎 #Zion
Don’t look down.... or do
I never thought I’d be National Park hopping, hiking up dangerous mountains that lead to the types of photos you find on a MacBook screensaver.
I thought I’d be sitting at a desk, getting bossed around by someone more “senior” than I am because they put in the years.
The truth is, I’ve always been the entrepreneur type. I’ve always had big dreams of owning my own business, doing what I love everyday, and helping others do the same. I just thought that time would come in my 30’s, not straight out of grad school.
Whatever those big dreams are of yours, don’t wait to start them. Do them now. It IS possible. Age is only a number; a number that grows with the number of days you’re unhappy with your life because you’re not leaving the career or job you hate. Don’t throw your precious time away for something that “seems” right and is “easy”. Do whatever your heart and soul are attached to. Not for the money, but for you. The rest will happen naturally.
Photo from our latest hike up to Angels Landing in Zion National Park, UT ⛰
Zion NP you beauty 😍
Arrived in Zion, Utah. short walk along the river, dinner then swimming and rope swing in the river beside camp, chill day 🙌🏻
Up at 5am to hike to Angels Landing. We got to Scout’s lookout and enjoyed the incredible views from there... even if I wasn’t wearing slippy Nikes I don’t think I would’ve climbed the last half mile along an exposed cliff ridge holding onto chains 👋🏻 We then waded up the Narrows which were nearly even more beautiful, this place is amazing! ⛰
When was the last time you sat down and just admired nature? 🇺🇸
Hike 1 done ✅ 8 tough miles, with a stop at the top for PB&Js (with banana too because that’s extra delicious) 🍌 Ready for a shower and a nap and all the hydration 💦 #ghostsoffgrid #mdw2018
These sand dunes were amazing, and the wind was so refreshing. You don't feel the heat at all. It was a small pit stop on route 89A and man was it worth it. [sorry for the quality, my next goal is to buy a camera :-) ]🌞 #coralpinksanddunes #Utah #Zion #vaycaymode
In the midst of chaos, I haven’t had as much time as I would like to soak in my most recent road trip. I basically arrived to Missoula, and started my job training shortly after. •—•
Now, my first hitch will start on Monday, and my family is visiting from Wisconsin. With 6 other people in the fam, it doesn’t leave much time for reflection. Regardless, I am so thankful to see them & unbelievably grateful for the Goodness that I have experienced in this world (which wouldn’t be possible without their support)! •—•
It’s looking like the time to mull my experiences over will happen on the trail. Until then, I’ll just look through my photos/videos & SMILE because I’ve got a whole lot of love & adventure in my life......& I don’t need much reflection to know that’s the TRUTH.✨
It’s the second day I spend in hospital bc I’m taking care of a person that I love a lot and I’m going through one of the hardest times of my life. I haven’t slept in 48 hours, I’ve had an anxiety attack last night because I was afraid of sleeping and then waking up to a world without this person in my life anymore. I’ve been doing nothing but laying on the floor and stare at a blank point but there have been a couple times where I grabbed my phone and opened twitter and I saw some of the pictures of the boys. I have no idea if they are new or what. But I just saw this picture and your smile, Nick, and I thought, maybe one day I will have the chance to hug you, and that is a reason why life would be good. And that is a reason to stay. And I really HAVE to think of a good reason to stay right now. Thanks for your music. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m really thinking about you now. I love you. All of you. Edwin. Brandon. Austin. Zion. You. Nick. I hope I can meet you someday. And that will help to make sense to a lot of things. Till we break the distance❤️ #prettymuch #pm #nickmara #nick #zion #brandon #austin #edwin
