Excuse me, meat bee. That is MY bacon on this mediocre 12 dollar park bacon cheeseburger with cold chewy fries. At least I got a cool cup. You had to break off a bit of meat tribute for the yellowjackets, or they would swarm you trying to get a bite. 🤣 BONUS: fat fucking squirrel with french fry. #basecampeatery #mediocrefood #baconcheeseburger #souvenircup #yellowjacket #meatbee #fatsquirrel #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitelodge #yosemitevalley #nationalparksgeek #latergram

It is hot in the valley and it felt so good cooling our feet off after a quick 6.5 mile walk. #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitenp #yosemitevalley #hiking #coolingoff #exploring #nature #takeawalk #ventureoutdoors

Got your attention?

Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park 🏞😍 ⁣ ⁣ This is the first view of Yosemite Valley that you’ll see when arriving from the south entrance. We stayed in a cabin within the park in Yosemite West, and although we arrived to the park late in the day and were eager to settle in and rest, we drove a little further through Wawona Tunnel to watch the sunset 🌅. From this viewpoint, you look eastward into Yosemite Valley, and can see El Capitan, Half Dome and Bridalveil Fall. It was a perfect way to kick off our Yosemite vacation! 👏⁣ ⁣ One of the reasons why I post to instagram is to keep a visual journal of our family adventures, which I then print out at the end of each year. However, another major reason why I’m here is for the connection and conversations I’ve had with others who share similar interests ranging from hiking, camping, traveling, food, fashion, parenting and wellness/ medicine. I have learned and benefited from the information shared here, so I try to pay it forward by sharing inspiration and tips along the way.⁣ ⁣ I’ll be sharing photos and details from our recent trip to Yosemite for the next little while. I may even write up our itinerary in a blog post if there’s interest (Yes! We do have a blog - link in bio 👆 ). For those who have been to Yosemite, what are your favorite spots within the park? To those who will be visiting soon, who wish to visit one day, or are considering what travel is like during the pandemic - what questions do you have? I’ll try my best to answer what I can. 💞

While this is not a Skylife aircraft, this amazing shot with the Yosemite granite mountains as a backdrop was taken by our Paramedic Jaime Parsons while working at @mercyair31_32 Mariposa base.

My bike and I have become really close this summer. When I bought it last year I named her “sky”.

Me posing with a big rock.⁣ ⁣ What's cool is that this big rock is in Yosemite National Park, which I got to visit this past weekend. ⁣ ⁣ For all the outdoor lovers out there, now is the perfect time to visit Yosemite. There are very few people and even better, very few cars. ⁣ ⁣ There was virtually no traffic whatsoever in Yosemite Valley. You can even leave your parking spot, drive around for a bit, and come back to your same spot! If you've ever been to this park in the summer you know how glorious this is! ⁣ ⁣ For those looking to explore the park for the first time, check out my Yosemite Road Trip post (link in bio ) for my favorite spots to see in the park.

💡”Por onde eu começo?” // Todo mundo que já tentou mudar algo significativo na sua vida, como implementar um hábito excelente ou deixar de lado um costume ruim, já se perguntou isso. A gente pensa grande! Sonha alto! E acaba acreditando que para alcançar feitos incríveis precisa começar direto no 100% de esforço! . Do dia pra noite torna-se o ~Super Man~ sem nunca ter sido o ~Clark Kent~❕ . Quase nunca dá certo. Você chama isso de fracasso. . Comece aos poucos. O objetivo do início de qualquer mudança de hábito não é o hábito em si. É começar a forjar a tua [nova identidade]. Não é ser um atleta. É primeiro ser o cara que não falta aos treinos. Estabeleça pequenas e razoáveis metas. 🎯 Acumule pequenas vitórias. Acostume-se a elas. Quando você menos esperar, será um vencedor. Terá vencido a procrastinação, o desânimo, o bloqueio. É de pouco que você se torna aquilo que quer ser. Quando sua identidade está bem definida, os hábitos que a sustentam já fazem parte da sua rotina. Como será a rotina de um assíduo leitor?! 📚 Ou de um maratonista? 🏃🏻‍♂️ . Eu comecei focando apenas na ✨ Golden Hour. E estou empilhando vitórias. Acostumando-me a vencer! E vou compartilhar cada pedaço dessa jornada transformadora contigo! “Cola em mim que é sucesso!” 💥 📸 Essa linda imagem é do El Capitan, que fica no Parque Nacional do Yosemite (🇺🇸 ), onde passei férias em 2019! Tido como um dos picos mais desafiadores dos EUA, foi palco de um documentário sensacional: 🎥 THE DAWN WALL 🧗🏼(tem na Netflix! ). São 2 alpinistas que nos dão uma lição de persistência, foco e resiliência! Já pensou realizar algo 800 vezes até conseguir?! Planejar por 6 anos um único objetivo?! Tenho certeza que esse filme vai te inspirar, assim como me inspirou! Aproveite seu momento de relaxamento pra curtir um conteúdo que pode te motivar a ser a sua melhor versão! ⚡️ #habitospoderosos #habitosatomicos #foconoobjetivo #vidaplena #mentevencedora #elcapitan #thedawnwall #yosemitevalley

We took the girls to Yosemite for the first time. The last time I was here I was about their age and so I experienced it in a very different way as a kid. Now as a mom so many years later, it was my turn to prep and plan. But I think that what I realized most is that the same child I was all those years ago, I continue to be today. The wonder and excitement at 12 years of age was no different in my 40’s. The responsibilities are greater but the joy and wonder is no less. I love that God created us with this inner child. He talks so much about children in the Bible and how we are to be like them. I always want to be that child. . I’m counting down to the next time we can be out again as a family to experience that same wonder!! And I so hope you can too even if for just a day or two. . And a shoutout to this man @tachu1 who, though under the weather, was a trooper. Truth is, he felt worse the day we came back. I think we need to go back!! . #wonder #godscreation #godscreationisbeautiful #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitevalley #yosemitefalls #godswonder #enjoytheoutdoors #goodnewsfeed @autocamp @ifgathering

More beauty of Yosemite and finally home again on the PCT for a nice little walk not to forget the wind in my beard. The freestyle pasta carbonnara was really exciting too cooked with the amazing view of #yosemitevalley . We got up to clouds rest with some really nice views and later on our journey then to Mt.Lassen.

We may not always like each other, but the love that we have for each other is indescribable. My family went along with my crazy idea of wanting to visit Yosemite for my 27th birthday. They walked a lot and stepped on big ass uncomfortable rocks as we waddled through a river to cool off and hiked a surprise incline and there was minimal complaining. (I mean, would it be a family get-together without some complaining? ) They surprised me by making it almost 7 hours in the park, admiring all the different birds and squirrels and the unexpected deer siblings we saw, and letting me lead the way- even when the way meant a dried up lake or a wrong turn. Yes, the moment we got home, we all retreated to our rooms BUT I am so lucky to have these people on my team! 🖤 #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #birthdayweekend #happybirthdaytome #family #familyisforever #tunnelview #cooksmeadow #yosemitevalley

I’ve been working hard on my August schedule as things are really starting to kick back into gear. I’m so happy to be stressed out again. I’ve missed this feeling. Also on a side note, Olympus just released some two awesome new products for both beginner photographers all the way up to professional level creatives. Check them out at @getolympus .
