Mirror, Trapped by Tide
At the feet of Etretat's cliffs, you don't want to get caught and trapped by the high tide, when the ocean face the opposite problem and doesn't want to get caught inside the rocks when the low tide comes.
I wanted to make a post about how gnarly sea kayaking is (still true) but I cannot get over the image quality of a screen-grab from my @GoPro #Hero5Black footage 🤤 I remember having to bring along my bulky digital camera to capture a shot like this but now it’s as simple as, “GoPro, start recording”, and the rest is done in post productions. They have been around for quite some time but every adventure still leaves me grateful for such a simple, portable and Nick-proof way to capture the moment 🤓🎬

Does it get any better than this? A view of the Cascade region from Sourdough mtn. is not easily attained. You have to embody a ⛰goat and climb straight uphill, a good 5000 ft full of steep switchbacks.
I’m sometimes conflicted between sharing a trail with people and between keeping it to myself. The dilemma has to do with wanting people to appreciate the majestic beauty of the wilderness and yet not overpopulating these fragile environments. National parks like Yellowstone & Glacier are swarmed by buses full of people & I always have mixed feelings. I don’t know, at the end of the day I always try to look at the bright side of things, I am glad that there are people appreciating nature because we need more such people to appreciate and be willing to make a change in the current political climate.
So why am I sharing this trail? Well, not everyone is willing to climb 5000 ft of steep incline terrain & to those who do, well bravo I hope you come out of it with a deeper appreciation of the land.
So we went here. No big deal. It’s just your average waterfall that’s cascading into the ocean, surrounded by gigantic cliffs that disappear up to the fog. Clearly I’m not impressed...
6:27 a.m. sunrise in #Ninamarca 🌞We departed #Cusco at 3:30 a.m. that day to make our way to the infamous #Paucartambo festival where I inevitably got my wallet stolen, but all smiles before that 😁✌🏻#TravelsbyTM
Day 22: it's very satisfying finding a nice free camping area, even better when there's no one else around. These spots seem to be pretty easy to hunt down out west, but it's still crazy to me how many times I've found myself alone amidst these towering trees.
