Dropping water levels have brought the past to the present as this photo of Dillon Pinnacles shows us. In it, we see Old Highway 50 as it originally went through the Gunnison Valley. Today, the highway is about 30 feet higher and on the south side of the reservoir. Up until 1965, this was the road to Sapinero, a former town currently sitting 200 feet beneath the water. As you witness the park in these rare conditions, be sure to take only pictures and to only leave footprints.
Yosemite, an even more inspiring place after watching Free Solo and meeting @alexhonnold at the Q&A afterwards. Seriously one of the best films of the year. If you haven’t seen it, go watch it! #freesolofilm
What a beautiful mountain. Half Dome has been so much for me over the last four and a half years: a playground, an office, a place to fall in love, make new friends, push my limits and to enjoy a few meals. Something that I truly never would’ve guessed even 5 years ago. What a wild ride it has been.

Hello, strange land. The last time I visited I’d just crossed America and spent some of my time here on top of a rock feeling a lot of things. I briefly considered throwing my wedding ring into a crevice to solidify the end of my marriage, but didn’t because that’s littering and I would never. All these years later a lot has changed. I’m less alone than I was then, in so many ways.
If there’s anything I want, it’s to show the magic of our parks to the people I love, and I did that today, with part of my lady wolf pack. We scampered, avoided all the crowded places and failed at synchronized jumping. It was perfect.
Umm... that's not lemonade... It's sorghum and sugar cane juice!
The molasses finally got finished yesterday and is available to sample in the visitor center! The press worked all night and gave us a good amount of juice but when we boiled it all down we got only enough molasses to fill a baby food jar!
Sure makes you thankful for those fall molasses cookies and all the hard work that used to go into a recipe like that.

One jar is collecting drippings from the bottom of the press.

Zion National Park. So excited to have finally witnessed this beauty! 😍🏔☀️ What I WASN’T prepared for... nasty parking lot battles, hour long shuttle waits, thousands of people with no concept of personal space packed onto steep trails with sheer cliffs... you wouldn’t necessarily call it a peaceful start to a stroll in nature, BUT it’s incredible what getting off the beaten track will get you. We abandoned the hope of getting to the top of Angel’s Landing after reckless kids (am I old yet?) started sliding uphill of us and a cliff because, well, it’s best to live to hike another day. But by going a little further to take a lesser known trail, I think we won out in the long run. This view turned the day around from a stressful mess into a hike that will accompany some of my favorite.
