(👉SWIPE👉) If you don’t watch my story, I guess you haven’t seen an update on Oslo in awhile. So here’s pictures from our latest camping trip together to the Uintas! He loves wide open spaces and hates large bodies of water 😂

After a rough night in the Uintas (due to some obnoxious fellow millennials who decided they needed to also go as deep into the woods as possible and, instead of enjoying nature, needed to run a gas powered generator from midnight to 7 am to charge phones and run a heater in their tent), we decided to head north of Salt Lake and try our luck at a lesser known spot on some National Forest land. At 9000’ we were above the horizon with no trees, which made for the most epic 180° views. Around 1am, when the Milky Way was at its peak in the sky, we faced east and looked directly up. All I could see were stars with the Milky Way running directly through the middle, entering my peripheral vision on the left and exiting my peripheral on the right. To be honest, it put an IMAX theater to shame haha. The lights of Salt Lake City, faintly visible on the horizon on the right, made me realize how incredibly lucky I am to live in a city that allows me such incredible experiences within an hour or so drive. Get out and enjoy the night sky this summer, I promise you’ll be glad you did ☺️. .

If you watch my story, I’m sure you’ve already seen him plenty. But I wanted to officially introduce my new best friend, Oslo. He’s a 6 week old blue heeler (Australian cattle dog). As soon as he’s ready he’ll begin going on more adventures than he could ever imagine :)

To the right of this picture was one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen, however the anticipation felt by colors hinting at what’s only a head turn away seemed to do it better justice. .

My #throwbackthursday is to the very first night I ever attempted night photography. @801priscila and I trudged through a cold April night in Arches to get to Delicate Arch. I had no idea what I was doing, other than a few google searches on the way down. When we got to the arch, conditions were nearly perfect. I adjusted my focus, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, tripod, zoom, lights, etc. etc. When the shutter closed after the first exposure, I held my breath and slowly opened my eyes to see this on the screen. My heart stopped. I was breath taken. I stood up and silently peered into the abyss before me until slowly I was able to make out the arch with the glimmering Milky Way rising just behind. I stood there for about 10 minutes before carrying on. My heart and mind couldn’t quite comprehend what was surrounding me, but I knew a seed had been planted that ultimately shaped me into the person I am today. This moment changed my life. I have never been so overcome with pure joy than I was, sitting on the freezing cold rock staring up into the galaxies beyond.
