Be safe out there camping folks.
Make sure you put out your campfires properly.
"We've contacted the Department of the Interior and we worked out an arrangement where New York State will fund the federal employees who operate the Statue of Liberty so it will reopen tomorrow at state expense.”
- Governor Cuomo
New York, you’re utterly amazing. When the federal government can’t be bothered to light the flame of liberty, leave it to the people. They’ll do it.
Happy to hear that my favorite National Monument will remain open for all.
Amazing cloud formations reflecting on the North Fork of the Payette River. My new backyard is stunning!
Thanks Olaf, Sven, and your 6 brothers for hauling my ass around The Arapaho National Forest today.
And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul 🌲 #keystone
With trepidation and guilt, I drove to Everglades National Park yesterday to see what was happening. The gates were open and a small 8.5x11 white piece of paper was taped to the iconic brown sign at the entrance.⠀
Fortunately, I ran into my friend Ranger Jeff who, while in plain clothes, was still serving our parks and their visitors. We assisted a woman from the Netherlands, who didn't understand what was going on and couldn't get a map for the park; he swore in three Jr. Rangers who diligently returned their completed books in hopes of getting their symbolic badge; he kicked out a couple of guys who were illegally fishing in Paurotis Pond.⠀
I asked him why he just didn't take the day off. In his kind, midwestern way, Jeff said it wasn't about him, but the visitors who only have a day to see this beautiful park on a layover, or the person from another country who will experience things they couldn't see where they live, or the kids whose father brought them to the park for the day and don't understand all the crap going on in Washington.⠀

Not thinking, just swinging!
"I want to make more. I want to give. I want to share with others. I will continue to heal. To release my doubts. To grow beautifully. To take care of myself. To love. // Allow more light and love in. Allow love and liberate yourself."
Found these scribbled words of mine tonight, as I was reflecting on a past journal entry from January 1. So here we are, already a few weeks into the New Year. I feel as if I already need to refocus my energy back to my intentions, as I may have already gotten away from them as the workload of the new year came upon us... So this is your pleasant reminder to focus and sit with the good. How do you want to walk through life? Go deep, and do the work. How much love can you pour into yourself? 💛✨
Thank you @slaygrlslay

Diplomatic immunity; we’re just different....
Imagine if I never meet my broski’s !!! ❄️
Trying text my accountant, ain't no service in the mountains ⛰
Day turns to night at the Apostle Islands Ice Caves.
If I could find you now things would get better
We could leave this town and run forever
Let your waves crash down on me
And take me away
1/20/18 - been taking a lot of pictures of roads recently. I think this is one of my favorites.
