𝒴𝑜𝓈𝑒𝓂𝒾𝓉𝑒 𝒩𝒶𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃𝒶𝓁 𝒫𝒶𝓇𝓀, 𝒰𝒮𝒜 🇺🇸 Вернулась из своего путешествия обратно в Bay Area - уставшая, но довольная. За несколько дней проехала больше тысячи километров. 🚗
Осенью Yosemite становится совсем другим: более романтичным, тихим и немноголюдным. 🍁🍂
Glacier Point находится на высоте 2 км над уровнем моря 🔝
Передо мной - знаменитая гора Half Dome. Во время заката её верхняя часть окрашивается в яркие цвета, что привлекает сюда туристов со всего света 🌄
На Glacier point можно подняться пешком (но путь тяжелый), или приехать на машине по красивейшему серпантину. Я, конечно же, выбрала второй способ 😌
P.S.: удивительно, что меня не съели медведи 🐻
You can travel hundreds of miles through Kansas, and find little interest, then something beckons you to visit. Today I discovered the Yellow Brick Road, and Dorothy's House in Kansas. A quick trip in a tornado landed me in OZ. I even spoke to the Wizard!
Last week I paid of the last of a remaining credit card debt. It was something I had built up over the years of course, putting everything from appliances for our house to Ed Hardy Jeans on there (if that tells you how old it is). The debt was up to $10k before I gave up trying to pay it down and I eventually settled for a little more than half that. .
I built that debt up not from traveling or taking adventures or doing things that made me happy. I had that debt from buying things I thought would make me happy. And yes I have a great fridge but it doesn’t make me smile like looking back on photos of the places I’ve been does.
I paid off my student loans and that was worth it. A trade off for education. I’m paying off Invisalign and that’s worth it. It’s my smile, my calling card. I’m paying off new windows and that’s worth it. It’s an investment in my home and safety of my family. But never again will I invest in stuff and go into debt over it. If I can’t afford it I don’t need it. I’m investing in travel and seeing the world. It’s education for your soul.
I know you have a choice on where you adventure and where you travel and where you spend your money. And so if you’ve come on a past retreat with me I thank you. And if you’re thinking of coming on a future retreat with me I promise I’ll make it worth your wild. I design experiences that are what I would want if I were taking a retreat. Money and time are valuable to me. I can make more of one but I can’t get the other back.
.I hope to adventure with you in 2019 and celebrate the world around us....not things. Retreats at yogimagee.com.
The Disney animation "Cars" may be geographically located at Peach Springs, AZ, but the essence of Radiator Springs is inspired by Holbrook, a few hundred miles to the east. How many of these real locations can you name in the Disney movie?
My sister and I are 17 months apart (Lord bless my momma.) and with being so close we shared a lot of things. Rooms. Clothes. Never shoes since Lauren’s feet stayed the same as a small child 😂. And food. Mainly she took my food but it’s whatever. I’m not bitter or anything. We also would argue. We are complete opposites.⠀
But as we’ve grown into adults, we’ve grown a lot closer. We talk all the time now and FaceTime a bunch. And I’m pretty thankful that my mom had us so close and gave me such a good built in best friend.⠀
Did you and your siblings grow up to be closer than you thought you would be?
Coyotes are highly adaptable and as capable of surviving as well in cities as in open space. For many livestock owners coyotes are considered public enemy No. 1. 400,000-500,000 coyotes are killed each year, and wildlife killing contests focused on coyotes are legal in all US states except for California. Unfortunately, lethal control tends to select for coyotes that are less likely to kill livestock, as the social structure of the pack breaks down and female coyotes become more likely to breed, so population numbers increase due to less competition in the offspring. More research into non-lethal methods like fencing, nightly enclosures, guard dogs, and birth control is needed to better safeguard both coyotes and ranchers in an urbanized world.
The kids got to dress up as colonial children. It was a great history review lesson from when they recently did one of their Junior Ranger books, and had to complete a page all about colonial attire.
It was a fun opportunity to see most of the actual clothing in person, and be able to try it on. There were a few missing pieces, but overall, the colonial outfits were there. There were some banjo's there as well, which the kids sat and played for a bit, and it was a cute moment, that made me think of how simple life must have been back then. 👕👚👖👒💛
...and then, as they changed their clothes...back to reality. 😜😉😊
*Swipe left to see their many expressions and colonial looks*
❓What is something in life that reminds you how simple life must have been in times past?❓
