This colder weather has me reminiscing about this pristine summer afternoon that consisted of finding the perfect spot after backpacking deep into the wilderness, sunbathing nude by the lake while reading the works of Thoreau, and snuggling up in the tent once the hailstorm hit. Followed by waking up before sunrise the next morning to summit Mt. Sneffels amidst wildflowers galore. It was and will always remain one of my favorite weekends and most memorable adventures in this life. #throwback#paradise#backpacking#mountains#alpinelake
Definitely missing Mono Lake. One of the most unearthly, alien places I've ever seen.
This was taken several years ago, when I first discovered my passion for photography. Although it's one of my first photographs, actually containing quite a few technical flaws, it remains one of my favorites.

Terrifying, yes but also liberating! The death of that particular dream has allowed me to dream again! Ryan told me, with elation.
For years I had been putting myself in a box that had been whittled down to almost a glove fit. Every i dotted and t crossed of my box of a master plan; but in the end there was nothing left to do so I just laid in it. I slumbered through my days as if this dream was a coffin and I had already been lowered 6 feet under. The recent realisation that the dream could not be accomplished woke me up to all the possibilities out there. And because of this I’ve started dreaming again, but this time I’m doing so without the attachment. To put it in the words of Yoda I had to let go of all that I feared to lose.
