One thing that we are extremely guilty of is not stopping. It’s always on to the next with little time to just stop and take in the view. We try to be better at this everyday, and during this hike, our goal was only that. No destination, just sheer wandering and finding the beauty in not just the shiny cool thing - but every little curve and turn.
Some more star trails, this time of Zion Canyon. This is looking north through the canyon. Zion, while not as dark as Bryce Canyon, is still plenty dark, and is great for viewing the stars.
The Canyon Walls are not the standard V-shape typically seen in canyons (perspective is what is creating the 'V' here) , which was why the Southern Paiutes called the land Mukuntuweap, or in English, "Straight up land". Every people that have been through the canyon have found this place awe inspiring and for good reason.
On a bleak Monday morning in the freezing drizzle, you might expect to find zero people out jogging, biking, walking their dogs, or beholding the Chattahoochee’s muddy majesty under I-285, but it’s amazing what happens when well-designed trails and parks give us the chance to find and enjoy our rivers again. (The parking lot was packed.) #findyourpark#nationalparkservice#nps
It has been an honor to race with these guys for the past 4 years and build a class friendship in Nitrous Pro Street and get another Runner-Up Champion! We have all had our ups and downs trying to compete in the class, but we’ve all been there for each other! I’m glad to call them family and I wish them all the best next year, as we will be moving on to the Mid-West Pro Mod Series-Pro Mod class and a few other Local Pro Mod events! #NMCA#NitrousProStreet#NPS#Family

Our snowshoeing adventure at Mount Rainier started with absolutely zero views, snow showers, and us bummed out and almost leaving to go somewhere else. But we’re SO GLAD WE STAYED! The sun eventually started to poke through the clouds and gave us a glimpse of Mount Rainier three times (and we squealed with excitement for all three 😂). We’ve said it before, but having patience is 🗝 in the PNW. Some of our favorite adventures (including this one), have started out a bit rough, but with some patience and shifting to a positive attitude, things can really turn around! 🗻❄️

Back in our beautiful sunny home. Man, I missed sun soooo much. These past few weeks in Europe were so dark and gloomy. Now I kind of start understanding Californians complaining about Seattle winters😅 As to my furry deer friends in the garden: their numbers are growing. Apparently, several herds like to cluster together during winter. Same applies to elk : saw hundreds of them peacefully grazing in snowy Valles Caldera yesterday. I also learned that there are 10-15 male bears in the area that don't hybernate in winter. Something to keep in mind when we start snowshoeing and skiing later in the season 🐻 // В Сиэтле я часто слышала как жаловались на отсутствие солнца зимой Калифорнийцы. Зажрались - думала я😂. И что ж теперь? Три недели в мрачной, серой, дождливой Европе меня не покидали мысли о нашем солнечном Лос Аламос 😅 И вот мы дома, ура! Снова я мажу солнцезащитный крем на мой веснушчатый нос😊 Снова я наблюдаю за стадом оленей в нашем саду, к которому присоединился красавец самец. Мускулистый, крупный, рогатый - завидный жених😊 Так интересно наблюдать за динамикой и отношениями в их небольшой группе. В мире животных за моим окном🦌Что может быть лучше? 😊 #pictureperfect#homesweethome#vallescaldera#winter#winterwonderland#nature#adventurevisuals#newmexico#musyavos_nm#discoverworld#wildlife#travelexploring#impressive#NMnomad#newmexicotrue#otherworldly#beautiful#nps#nationalpark#natgeotravel
