A Place Beyond the Highway

This past Wednesday and Thursday turned out to be a wild night under the stars with some super beautiful people. The pictures truly speak for themselves in this set, I'm incredibly proud of these images. I've been to Joshua Tree three times during THIS YEAR ALONE and they its keeps getting better and better. What an inspiraional place.

I mean, look at that freaking coyote. And the air-streams. Oh my lanta.

Zambia: NEW Journal Post and YouTube Videos

Field Notes from My Solo Expedition to Zambia

"...8 months later, I found myself traveling over 45+ hours to wind up the crazy small village of Mfuwe positioned just outside the South Luangwa National Park. Alone. Here to photograph the children, the wildlife, the villagers, and ultimately — Chipembele’s story."

Below are links to the first-hand accounts of my time in this wondrous country; big or small, treacherous or peaceful. Buckle up, it’s a longer read this time. Traveling alone with almost zero access to wifi or service during my trip, I had a lot of time to myself to think and practice mindfulness. Link down below.

Take a gander if you will.

Iceland: Journal + YouTube Video

10 Day Road Trip Iceland Trip

The months are slowly approaching June and I'm becoming nostalgic (already) of my boyfriend and I's adventure in Iceland. We road tripped around the ring road for 10 days; my heart is so full just thinking about it all. Gah. I love him.

Ready my full travel journal on my home page here. And, if you have 11 minutes to spare, grab a good ole cup of coffee and watch our home video linked in YouTube above. 

Much love to y'all.

 

Four Peaks

The Final Ascent

It was a few years back when a group of friends and I attempted to summit Brown's Peak amidst the Four Peaks wilderness. All I can remember from that trip was the ridiculous behavior I displayed nearing the infamous scree chute. I clung to the side of a vertical rock wall, balled my eyes out, and refused to go any further up the top.

It was -- embarrassing to say the least.

Fast forward a few years later with a slightly different group and guess what? We made it. I finally beat those ugly demons of climbing up those dangerously steep rock walls and screamed at the summit. It was an exhilarating feeling to finally conquer those fears! This isn't to say I didn't shed a fear tears on the way up (well, almost...), but I did it with flying colors nonetheless. We celebrated with a few high fives and cans of beer.

      The scree chute. It doesn't look that steep -- but trust us, it was! The snow / ice cover didn't make our footing any easier.

                         My love and I at the top! We hardly have any photos together, so it was a real treat to grab this snap. :)

We had debated pretty profusely the night before our ascent if we should bring GOOD camping food or tough it out with pre-packaged Mountain Houses. It rang too late into the night to go grocery shopping last minute, so we went with the Mountain Houses. Yummy -- freeze dried pasta!

Nah, it was pretty damn tasty. We all mixed and matched different flavors and ate each other's leftovers at the campfire. Thanks to our girl, Kelsey, for being this trip's fire master!

A beautiful weekend trip messing around the in the outdoors, per usual. I love these guys so much.
