Marty the Marmot saw me taking some family portraits and begged to have some of his own. Not only did he show me his house, but he showed me what he likes to eat, and where he likes to look out at the river. Marty is a fan of memes, as you can see in the last picture, and when I asked him what people can do for him, he said to please stop throwing trash all over his home. One like = One “hey yo Marty” ❤️

Reminiscing on the summer travels of 2017 when we went to Denali, Alaska. The west coast is truly a wonderful, enriching land of adventure and beauty.

Go for it.
Not just once, but again and again and again.
Whatever it takes.
Because in the end, with your arms held high in the winner's circle, beaming with joy, as light as a feather, crying your eyes out, you'll see how fantastically disproportionate the rewards are for the effort expended, the risks taken, and the price you paid - no matter how many false starts you endured. And you'll be astounded by how quickly you made it, even though, when the going got tough and your spirits dwindled, you thought you'd never, ever, ever, "see the day." #rewriteyourhardware

I will be posting up Alaska photos. If you’d like to binge read the whole trip, link is in my profile 🗻

It’s all about the light.
One of the best parts of this pass is that it allowed me to be in the park at whatever time I wanted...which means I am able to shoot during golden hour, which is generally after the final bus has left the park.

Love being a mama to these two.💕

18,500 ft... above Zebra Rocks, a wonderful expanse of the mind,
and if the weather is just right, it reveals an almost “Martian-like” topography. Conversation slows, words have a heavy gravity, a pulse exists within every step,
and purpose dictates action. -But the surreal state I was in kept me centered on simply just walking and keeping pace. I couldn’t wait to share photos of this geological landscape with Erin, @erinedonaghy...so in her own words: ————-
“Zebra rocks are named for their striped appearance. The white rocks are felsic igneous dikes that are associated with the McKinley granite. The black rocks are Cretaceous marine siltstone and shale that were metamorphosed to argillite when the McKinley granite intruded...
-
So the pluton in this diagram would be the McKinley granite. And the Dikes would be the felsic intrusions at Zebra rocks. You can see the red rocks (the igneous intrusives) cross cut the “country” rock, or the in-place sedimentary rocks. The heat from the intrusions metamorphoses the adjacent sedimentary rocks, so in the case of Denali, the mudstones turn to argillite
-
Through time, and continued faulting and uplift, the pluton and some of surrounding country rock have been brought to the surface and uplifted into the mountain Denali is now
-
So the “roof pendant” would be the sedimentary rocks that managed to get preserved on top of the pluton despite the massive erosion and uplift the region endured
-
Note how the dikes cross-cut the sedimentary rocks, and sills and laccoliths are bedding-parallel” - -GEOLOGY POW!!!
Her words are as deep and beautiful as her soul ...geology at this altitude is as intriguing as the unknown that lies ahead... 📸: @mountainclimbgrace 🏔️: 1.Leading slowly towards the “football field” with summit ridge in distance 2. Above Zebra Rocks, Archdeacons tower to climbers left, with wind plumes on summit 3. “Thumbs Up” is all it takes ———————————————-
