Keep on climbing...

Seljalandsfoss

Ripples rip through the tideless times... coalescing on the southernmost north shore, and surfacing beneath the soles sat stationary.

A song echoed through the Fjord; 'Old man, River...'

The nagging itch of your seventeenth mosquito bite, the third twisted ankle, the mud caked webbing between your gnarled toes... who's up for a hike!? It's been far too long!

Oahu, HI

A land of fire and ice, and packed full of beauty... overlooking the calm bay and the glaciated mountain border, it's hard to imagine a more serene scene.

Summer hikes high.

The Big Island is such a trip!! Here's a view from the top of a crater. 😬

Consumed by thoughts today... what are we doing to this planet?? A whale, overshadowed by a buzzing cancer... sometimes it is completely blinding; the fact that we take FAR too much from everything/everyone around us.

Sharing some west coast sunset vibes!!

Sitting in the library and going through summer photos... it's the first day of fall semester. 😲

Makapu'u Lookout

Big island bathhouse sits at the bottom of these falls.
NO SOAP NEEDED: enjoy a free high pressure rinse today!

That one time we got up before the sun...

Norway: I don't know if any words I have can accurately convey my love for, or the connection I feel to, this place... I can't wait to go back and give this place the time it deserves. ⛰️🙏🏻

Things are almost never as bad as they might initially seem... keep your head up, start walking, and enjoy the journey! .
A throwback to when Rachel and I hiked up the arch.

Who's moving in next door?

30 day challenges: maintaining a daily ritual for at least a month... you guys partake?

Along the road to one of my favorite places...

Waking up is sometimes hard, but those extra minutes of shut-eye can never really live up to what is waiting for you outside... Here's a view, atop a grassy knoll, of a loud morning sun last weekend.

An afternoon paddle... and... a word to the wise: sit in the back; paddling is hard and it makes it easier to take a break inconspicuously. Also, if you get caught then you can just use the excuse that you were taking photos. 😉

North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii

Sunsets with @rachellaurenelizabeth14... life's awesome!

Oh how I love you, Canada... Happy 150 years! 🎊🎉 Had to dig to find a shot in Canada... it's been WAY too long... but I'm sure glad I had a Samsung back on this glorious day, and that @rachellaurenelizabeth14 was there to capture it 😂.

I think this was the first time seeing the Milky Way in Hawaii... little long on the shutter but it was hard to take my eyes off the sky!
