I have been keeping all sorts of weird hours the past week or so. I was hit by the plague, and am only just getting my feet back under me after a rough week of illness. This has meant disgusting coughing every 2ish hours in the middle of the night... and pre-dawn sunrises, Big Dipper displays, and striking moon sets. This was taken around 5:45 or 6am this morning of two stars aligning with a rather peachy Mt. Rainier.

You could travel all the way to Arizona's Antelope Canyon to see sexy shapes in nature, or you could just go anywhere mountainous in the PNW between now and April and point your camera at the ground.

"You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do"⠀
~ Confuscious⠀
My personal belief is to take action in your life but be mindful of your choices and the path you take. Inspire others through your example and the create a ripple of positive energy in an ocean of adversity. It is through our daily meaningful intentions that our reputation is grown and the change grows into an undeniable force. #MIndfulExplorer #ExploreBeyondTheUsual

It was a good weekend. But now I’m counting the days to the next one. #glazerscamera

Pretty cool random place I was at this weekend on a road trip - interesting story: (me and my pups are at the top)
Salvation Mountain is a hillside visionary environment created by local resident Leonard Knight (1931–2014) in the California Desert area of Imperial County, north of Calipatria, northeast of Niland near Slab City, and several miles from the Salton Sea.

Wishful thinking

While it seems early in the season for snow, I’m not complaining! This wasn’t our original hike but when roads are closed, it’s good to have an adventure buddy who is up for just about anything.

went on a road trip through Arizona this weekend. Forgot my camera battery at home and ripped my film while trying to unload it but here’s a pretty sweet iPhone shot from the Grand Canyon. You can’t win em all

A rare puppy-free weekend hike. My favourite thing about this hike was the smell. It smelled like fresh elk poop (smells glorious), which reminded me of the smell of fresh sheep poop (also glorious), which reminded me of being back home and hiking in Europe (definitely glorious). So essentially, I was hiking in Europe for the day, and it was glorious! #amiweird .

Drove through the night to Mt. Hood National Forest. Woke up at 4am and hit the trail with @kevinmonahanphoto. We were met with some freezing temps and strong wind. Taking off our gloves for each photo really makes you feel like you've earned it with hands so cold the burn. Wrapped up the morning with amazing chicken and waffles from @kickstandcoffeekitchen. Also, @tecnu_outdoor thank you so much for the @gorumpl blanket. Really needed the extra layer last night!

One of my worst habits is "overplanning" our photo trips. I tend to look at weather reports, cloud forecasts, social media to see what others have captured at a planned destination. I basically just try to maximize our chances of getting things like vivid sunsets with interesting compositional elements. Well, this was one of those trips where all my best plans just seemed to backfire on me and I wasn't getting the compositions I had envisioned.

On the drive home, I saw the moon come out and told @thegirlwhoplayedwithfireflies that it would be quite a shot if we could get the sunset colors and moon in a single frame. She points at a spot off the side of the road and says "...there you go".

I could sit on this beach for hours and listen to the crashing waves and stare into the fog ♡ #myhappyplace

Spotted this little covered bridge on the trek back home and was reminded of the importance of progress, connections, and stability as I overcome the many obstacles and lessons I will face during the journey towards my next destination in this life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here’s some #mondaymotivation for ya. Get out and make those adventures happen. I love the scale this photo conveys with the singular person atop the peak. What destinations are on your list for the remainder of 2018?
