vernal falls hike, yosemite

some places in the world are so beautiful they should be downright illegal. vernal falls is no exception. the closer you get to the falls, the louder it is - and soon you'll be sprinkled in tiny misty bubbles of overspray from the roaring falls crashing against the rocks. we spent a good deal of time here just marveling. because this is the kind of place that demands time to marvel. you should never rush places like these. never ever.

even if you're not that guy who pulls out their camera to photograph every pretty dang thing they see, go to yosemite and you'll probably be that guy pulling out your camera to photograph every pretty dang thing you see. because yosemite is just that gosh darn pretty. i mean really, guys. my mind was so blown i was speechless for like the first thirty minutes just staring at mountains. staring. speechless and staring.

last day of 2014 | mt. baldy, ca

our lately has looked a lot like this. we're always outside doing something. the ice house trail beckoned us on new years eve, and we spent the last day of 2014 hiking against frigid winds on mt. baldy in freshly fallen snow. i love the way the world looks blanketed in white. brings back only good memories. it was bitter cold (for us angelenos), and i was glad to have my hot chocolate thermos with me. hiking along the trail of cabins perched in the canyon with a frozen river below, we talked about our goals for the new year and the plans and dreams we have and plan to actually accomplish. it's nice to have friends you can just talk to about anything.

west yellowstone, september 2014

we took the road from idaho all the way into the edge of wyoming and montana to see yellowstone. i hadn't been there since i was a kid and all i remembered was old faithful and a mountain goat. yellowstone is the world's first official national park which makes it extra special. the bison roam free in large herds across the great wild west, grazing and enjoying life by the fresh mouthful. my mom once lived near yellowstone and visited here often in the late 70s and early 80s; she literally had a physical brush up with a mama moose and her baby on a casual walk with her newborn (we're talking they rubbed shoulders, people). mama moose made sure to mark her territory, and oddly enough the two mothers seemed to have a connection that they just wanted to protect "their young," and left each other alone after that. yellowstone is the type of place where you respect the fact that you're the visitor in their territory. because if you don't, you might end up in a race sprinting against a mighty bison.
