People from all over the world come to zion to do angel's landing. the trail gains a few thousand feet of elevation in about two and a half miles. it starts off gradual but soon turns into a series of many switchbacks. about a half mile below the top, there is a lookout which many people stop at to admire the views and take a break before continuing. this is also a turnaround point for some because not everyone can make the final stretch. it involves hiking next to the steep cliff side with chains bolted along the way to help people keep their balance. because angel's landing is so popular, this section usually takes a while to complete as some people tend to go slower. when we got to this part, i was tired of waiting such a long time so i decided to go around the chains and blaze my own trail which involved some climbing. though maybe not the wisest decision, it was all part of the adventure. finally, once at the summit, we were rewarded with spectacular views looking down the valley. it's a great spot to soak in the scenery, have a snack, and even take a nap. we did this hike last year for spring break and it was definitely worth doing a second time. angel's landing is an amazing hike and one that should be on everyone's bucket list.
One of my favorite parts of traveling is going someplace i've been about a hundred times and seeing how different it looks each time. of course i had to check out the california desert super blooms this year 🌻
Scuba diving is probably one of my favorite ways to travel! there are so many beautiful places it can take you, amazing people you can meet and even new friends under the sea. if you haven't been, i would highly suggest planning a trip, getting certified and making it a yearly thing. i'm always up to join too if you need a dive buddy! 😜 #divingtrip#divingfamily#ilovescubadiving 📷 @samludwig23

After a few beers...
katie: jenna is the worst at the ball game
me: why? how many hits did she get?
katie: like one
just an observation but it looks like jenna isn't being included fairly to get more than one hit 😂😂 #cassiacrew
Captured partially finished, @honeynschmaltz spreads remind me of buddhist sand mandalas. like monks who painstakingly create intricate sand patterns, these spreads take hours to construct. further, just as the monks destroy the mandalas to represent the fact that everything is moving and temporary, then release the swept sand into moving water as a symbol of the transitory nature of life, these spreads are served as soon as they are finished... only to be torn apart and devoured by hungry bystanders.
i'm looking for more healers, farmers, nature spirits, musicians, chefs and awakened wanderers to work with. if of interest, please visit the link in my profile.
