Sarah Williams  I believe that our connection to nature is vital— I set out to explore the ways in which we discover and strengthen that relationship. 🌲⛺️📷🍂🏔🗺 💡

His favorite place. I visited within hours of his passing. I feel weak but somehow stronger and life isn’t the same, but I wouldn’t want it to be. I’m counting my blessings as opposed to my grievances. As his soul departs, I carry his spirit— his wildness, his wise cracking humor and his inspiring connection to nature.

I promised him that I would live my best life. Laugh at adversity, show compassion even when it’s difficult, throw greed to the wind, and live in a happy spiritual state ‘now’.

“If you want to be happy, be.” He lived a thousand lives before mine even began. He watched as I took my first breath, and I, his last. He taught me how to be brave and prepared me for life. Ill miss him every single day and I’ll honor him by leaning into love, every chance I get and pushing myself to heights that are beyond what either of us could have imagined. I mean, he gave me a high five when I was expelled from preschool and made me believe that my shade of different was the kind the world needed. Best Dad ever.

I love this photo because I had to be good enough to get myself down a double black diamond to take it, and that’s a life goal realized 🙌🏼

“The world without spirit is a wasteland. People have the notion of saving the world by shifting things around, changing the rules, and who’s on top, and so forth. No, no! Any world is a valid world if it’s alive. The thing to do is to bring life to it, and the only way to do that is to find in your own case where the life is and become alive yourself.” -Joseph Campbell

I think it’s natural— when you revisit a place of significance, to also revisit the person you were when that significance was established. Mt. Whitney has become that kind of place for me. I took this photo on the final morning of the High Sierra Trail which I did last July. It wasn’t my first solo hike, but I decided then it was to be my last solo for awhile. This was one of those moments that left an imprint so large that it’s easy to step back into. The cold air hung still— all I could hear was the gravel beneath my feet, and the primitive music of my heart. It was magic.

I’ve been feeling the opposing forces lately. The ones that try to drain my energy by holding my thoughts hostage in old patterns that are destructive to my creativity, work, and potential. Some days, those forces win. Today they didn’t. There is power in co-existing; not running but reframing.

This photo is special because it almost didn’t happen. There were many valid reasons why I should have stayed home, but me being me, I could not pass up a trip to Yosemite especially one with a Half Dome summit. This photo was taken at 9:45pm on a Monday night and we had the moonlit scene to ourselves. The super-moon guided the 10 mile descent to meet this epic waterfall. I sat and absorbed it’s entirety and briefly thought about how I had to be at work at 6am the next morning in a city 5 hours away. I was exhausted going into this intense trip, and I was a zombie after, but now I have this beautiful memory and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I once took a pen to paper to draw a single line that represented my growth. It started out straight with the occasional peak and valley, then it went a little haywire. It started to resemble a roller coaster created in the mind of seven year old daredevil— it was up, down, backwards and forwards; it was all over the place but ultimately, it was cyclical.
Treating growth as a game, it’s a matter of pattern recognition. Names, faces, and environments change, but certain situations don’t. You find yourself dealing with themes repetitively until you break past it.
With each decision you make you have a choice to play to your ego, or to play to your soul and there’s a strength in knowing the difference. It takes time and a lot of wrong decisions but eventually you’ll get it right— be kind to yourself in the process 💛

Mother Nature 🍂

This was the sunrise as I saw it 3 days ago. We started hiking at 3:43am, and didn’t stop until almost 18 hours later. We hiked “Cactus To Clouds” which starts in Palm Springs, CA and ends 10k above at the summit of Mount San Jacinto. It was a long but incredible day.
