Miss Whisper on the prowl... #NeverLeaveTheDogBehind

#Bird #nest nooked into a rock outcropping at about eye level, on our evening hike today. The four tiny eggs and irritated momma trying to distract us, filled me with wonder about the reality this little family lives with in our quiet forest. We quickly left them in peace and hope to go back and check up on our #winged neighbors from time to time and hopefully watch them grow and #fledge.

First ever FreeBASE #solo. I innovated this new form of #rock #climbing in 2008 on the North Buttress of the #Eiger in #Switzerland. This concept of turning dying into #flying is a metaphor for my basic life principle... Quite often there is a way to change the worse things we have going on into the best things which become our strengths.

Kicking it with Miss Whisper #Dog at #GlacierPoint #Yosemite. The beauty and raw-natural-power of this place brings out more in me than I thought I ever had while simultaneously making me feel quite small.

The most perfect #arrowhead I've ever seen in #Yosemite. Found by my lovergirl @jen_rapp on a walk with Miss Whisper and myself near Foresta. So cool imagining native people here hundreds and thousands of years ago and the stillness and #freedom they must have felt until white man disturbed the balance. There's still peace in this Valley but I sure wish there were more than lost obsidian points to connect with... #FlyFee

El Capitan #DoggieStyle... With @albooogie @stinkdread @jen_rapp Gonz and of course Miss Whisper. @Ruffwear #NeverLeaveTheDogBehind

The beauty of the flowering #DogWood #trees has been stunning this spring in #Yosemite. The #mystical feeling of this #forest surrounds me and within its #canopy I feel anything is possible and my outlook brightens. #FlowerChild #FlowerPower #Hippie #TreeHugger #JohnMuir #Naturalist #Pagan #GreatMystery

Video captured a few minutes ago on our porch in #Yosemite West. If you want to make friends with #Ravens, you've gotta give them what they like... Not a whole lot different than humans. #CorvusCorax raids nests for #eggs and baby #chicks in the #wild. I know some people think feeding #wildlife is wrong but I get lonely sometimes and love the idea of befriending wild #creatures if only through bribery... Plus, I'm a wild creature myself and I'm only inviting a #neighbor over for #breakfast... "How would you like your #egg Mr. Raven? Sunny side up or raw? Or would you like the #Benedict?" Seriously though, it''s interesting to watch a #Raven eat an extra-large-chicken-egg... Being careful not to drop the egg from their perch, they position it upright, then pierce a small hole in the top of the hard shell and suck out the inners completely with their very long red tongue, leaving a perfectly clean hollowed out shell behind. #BlackBird #FlyFee. Oh yeah, that's my hair next to the egg... I just cut it off and hope the Raven takes it and weaves it into its nest. #voodoo #shaman #pagan #nature #strangebird

One of my all time favorite pictures of #CivilDisobedience. 4 illegal BASE-jumpers leap into #flight off of #HalfDome in #Yosemite. I sure miss my friend @SeanLeary. He's wearing red in this picture. It should not be forbidden to spread our #wings in the #LandOfTheFree.

Thanks for giving us everything Mother.

Lazy Sunday morning with Miss Whisper #dog. Photo by @jen_rapp

@AdidasOutdoor mountain boot from 1934. It's cool collaborating with a company that's been around for so long and is consistently progressive through the ages. Adidas also supported Jesse Owens in the 1936 Olympics, when he won 4 gold medals.... A very bold move for a German company on the verge of World War II... #LiveWithoutLimits #Freedom #FlyFree
