I stumbled through the soft snow to the frosty riverbank of the Merced river. The cold waters meandered glacially, it's still surface reflecting the winter landscape of Yosemite valley. Skeletons of trees hugged the icy shores, frostbitten remnants of a lush green summer. Tall dark conifers punctuated the landscape beyond, stalwarts of the polar temperatures. A moody grey sky completed the mood, with a thick mist dropping down to the treeline lending a mysterious aura.
This was one of my winter sojourns many winters ago in Yosemite National Park. It saddens me that such a beautiful treasure has to stay closed due to the shutdown. My thoughts go to the Park employees and Rangers.
My first visit to Elfin Forest, wasn’t sure how my pup would do. He loved it but unfortunately we didn’t make it to the top of the trail to see the view of the lake. He got a little wet and I’m sure we’ll come back again. Great place to hike, not too hard and not too easy.elfinforest #hikingwithmypup#lovenature#getoutdoors#escondido#betterthanagymworkout🏞🙏🏻❤️😊
Eyes on the trail.
I could not help but think about the early times and the way of life our ancestors lived. It’s been fairly dry out lately yet everything was soaking wet. The moss, the trail, the air... I thought to myself “no way could I start a fire to save my life!”
One of the last shots of this set after we started getting rained out. It was great shooting with @eniqua and I suggest working with her if you have the opportunity! Looking forward to future shoots.
I also have a backlog of content so this is weird... 2019 is starting pretty good!
Back to Thailand reminiscing and, of course, my beloved elephants. I spent a day with these beautiful souls and unbridled baby at Elephant Nature Park. Love these amazing, sentient beings! Their gentleness, their strength, their love and compassion for each other, their antics and wisdom. What an incredible day this was! Memories cherished forever!

He may look innocent...but don’t let that fool you. 😂 today I caught him (on camera!) jumping up and putting those cute little paws on the kitchen counter. Not cool dude. .
Can never stay mad at that little face though. Could you? 😂🐶
