"...the lights seems to flow or shine out of the rock rather than to be reflected from it"
-Clarence Sutton, early explorer of Capitol Reef
Having seen this place first hand I can tell you that this description is accurate!
For anyone out there listening to their wild imaginative hearts, dreams do come true. The soul knows its path. Listen to your gut, follow the craziest, scariest, most challenging dream you have. Your soul knows its purpose. Your heart knows its potential. Manifest your destiny. Create the life you can truly love every single day. You deserve nothing less.

Family drive out to Queen Valley. The desert is looking extra green from all the recent rainfall. The bugs seemed to be flourishing too and took notice of our visit. We were happy to enjoy the views from within Tawny’s new Jeep Patriot. Happy adventures!
Movie 🎥 🍿 night gone wrong.
We’ve been to this dry bed lake plenty of times but this one was special. We brought the laptop to watch a movie and hooked it up to the truck for some good sound. The plan was to just watch it from the bed of the truck. Right before we started to set up the wife spotted one 🦇 yup, that changed everything. We pulled out the tent, set up our in tent cinema, and new instantly what I wanted to shoot. (I forgot the attachment to the tripod at the house so I shot it down low on the floor witch at the end turned out nice with the reflection) As I wait for the the camera to do its magic, I begin to feel and here things around me. As soon as the camera takes the shot I decide to do one more. By that time I knew it was a 🦇 but I definitely wanted one more. What I didn’t know was the amount 🦇’s Let me remind you it’s summer and we’re the only ones out in the middle of the desert so I feel comfortable enough to just wear boxers. Bad idea, now I’m swinging and kicking everything around me the picture is taken and I run back to the tent. We turn off the laptop and listen, soon enough we can see just enough to know there are hella bats all around us, yeah the whole squad was out to get us!
To be continued....
From one day to the next, the desert skies don’t disappoint. ✨🌞 The weekend @rimrockranch was truly like no other I’ve experienced. Gwen & Eric, the owners of the property welcomed us in from the minute we set foot there. From enjoying @roomforty meals & @pharmacie__ cocktails together, to a sunset hike, yoga and sound bath, to real conversations shared — I couldn’t have felt more at home. 💫🌧Night one was an almost perfectly clear sky, ideal for star gazing & night two brought a much needed rainstorm and unbelievable sunset with it. I’d spoken to Gwen earlier in the day on our hike about how badly they needed some rain & there it came on the perfect night to enjoy dinner on their porch instead of under the sky, like the previous night. Things don’t always go as planned, sometimes rarely, but the most important thing is the way you deal with it. Rain was always my dad & my thing — we’d run outside straight into the rain when we heard the pitter patter sound start. It was pretty cool seeing other people who appreciate it the way we do, not running straight for cover, but rejoicing in it. The only thing that had to change was the location of the dinner table and it was a whole new experience from the previous night — perfect in its imperfections. So next time something doesn’t go as planned, look at the situation differently — and truly it’s never the end of the world. ❤️
🗺This weekend: @OceanAirTravels feature ☀️
📍DUBAI — There is a charming allure about Dubai that not many other cities can emulate. Actually, what other place on earth has ever conjured up such dazzling and innovative mega structures across what was a vast desert less than 50 years ago (considering the UAE was founded in 1971)? During its rapid urbanization, Dubai has also emphasized diversity and culture at its core. In the videos above are entertainers from the @OceanAirTravels during an evening performance. Traditional dances from a multicultural mix of entertainers are widely adorned by locals and travelers alike. The first video is of the #TanoraDance which originates in Egypt as a folk dance. The performer spins like this for a full set without appearing even a bit dizzy. The second video of course is of a belly dancer which has been thought to originate in Lebanon before being brought to Spain and trickling throughout the rest of the world. Part of the magic of Dubai must be that of its people’s rich cultural backgrounds. In fact, approximately 85% of Dubai’s population are foreigners, or expatriates, according to 2017 reports from the World Population Review. Dubai has a special way of preserving the past, yet propelling the whole world forward in entertainment, business, travel, finance, fashion and food and many other top-performing industries. | 📽 and ⌨️ by @falynswears | #nitnewsco #🇦🇪 #oceanairtravels#safari#entertainment#desertvibes#culture#dubai
