Taking a break during a long hike, he was getting weary and starting to zone out when he would sit down to rest. Usually an indicator to turn around unless I want to be carrying him for long distances. Which isn’t a big deal, but at almost 40lbs my weak arms don’t get us very far. To keep him engaged this is when I would have him count trees, tell me the colors he could see, find rocks, or sing me a song. Collecting moments.

Autumn colors sprouting up around the St. Johns bridge as we have officially entered into fall...
In can be hard to set sail into the unknown, letting fear consume your every thought. But I have nothing to fear, for I have prepared my entire life for this voyage; and in the unknown, all I see is opportunity.
It took a serious hike to get here. Almost went back halfway due to too much snow and poor visibility, then all of a sudden it cleared up just a little. So I kept going and the reward was incredible. 😊 #yohonationalpark#canada
No, this is not Mt. Rainier. It's is out of frame and covered in a thick layer of clouds so I was bummed out. Stuck around and the light got good for the rest of the range.
Couple things I learned about my first visit: summer starts really late here. Wait a couple weeks and the wild flowers will be in full bloom, Optimal milky way alignment over the mountain is also later in the month. Nevertheless, had a great time and was a good learning experience. 👍
