I love being out in nature; she always shows me my place in this world. • I managed to spot a cute little salamander and his/her friend, crossing the trail. • I also observed a middle-aged Russian lady hiking in just her bra. And I don’t mean a sports bra. I mean a turquoise and pink Victoria’s Secret-type bra... But I suppose if her leader rides shirtless on a horse..... 🤔 #mtb
May the new year bring you and me to many places in this vast, incredible world. May we bow our heads under the weight of mountains, may towering trees nourish us with their life and wisdom, and may our eyes be opened to the invisible miracles that take place all around us, every day. #humboldt #humboldtcounty #redwoods
This is Fern Canyon, the supposed highlight of our 12 mile hike. But I hardly saw it, and neither did Joe. At this time of year, most of it is flowing with icy water and if you’re not wearing waterproof shoes, you have to give it a miss. Or... you could take off your socks and shoes and pretend you’re a Masai warrior. And when the rocks and pebbles stab the soles of your feet, you can do a weird, hoppy dance with a shoe in each hand, cussing for beats, which is what we did for almost half a mile. You’ll end up not seeing much of it but it’ll be a hike for the books, I guarantee it. (P.S. zoom in to see Joe’s soulless gaze of despair.) #humboldt #humboldtcounty #redwoods
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May your joy be bountiful like the mud freckles on our faces!
This is an old photo but I’ve no new pictures to post and really, all I want to say is... HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE! It’s the shortest, darkest day of the year, but worth celebrating to me because it means the days are going to get longer and brighter from here on, and that’s definitely something to get excited about. Quite an apt metaphor for life, don’t you think? #wintersolstice #mtb
Celebrating 36 years of life, 30 years of friendship (with @rdrache, the girl in this picture) and 11 years of marriage (to the handsome man who took the picture)! So much love, so much to be thankful for. ❤️☺️
