Clouds are never exactly the same.
.
It doesn’t matter how many times I look at the sky, the pattern is different from what it was 10 minutes ago.
.
Watching those endlessly changing patterns is a great reminder that nothing stays the same. There are an infinite number of variations of the basic patterns. .
And since the sky is readily available right outside your window, you can escape the sometimes overwhelming noise of contemporary life by allowing yourself to stare outside your window.
.
Nobody can stop you from daydreaming.

Where does this cloud take you?

Mood.

Just a few horrifying lovelies in the insect heavy life of Congaree National Park. The sixth photo is forest debris caught in spider silk, some twenty feet above the forest floor. The Golden Orb weavers create beautiful matrices of web overnight that catch anything from falling leaves to (*holds breath*) BIRDS. #congareenationalpark #congaree #southcarolina @congareenps @nationalparkservice @nationalparkgeek @natgeo #nationalparks #travel #spiders #bugs #insects #giantmulticoloreduniversespider

Health tip: since last December I’ve lost over twenty pounds by changing my diet, biking, and going on hikes in the Congaree and other state forests. While I enjoy the sounds of nature I also enjoy listening to music to make the time go by. #congaree #pinkfloyd #fitness #health #music #hiking #hikingadventures #astronomydomine

I will probably never go back to visit @congareenps in the summer ever again 😅

It's a beautiful place but I have never seen or felt so many mosquitoes in my life. The park has a mosquito meter which goes from 'All Clear' up to 'War Zone,' and of course we were lucky enough to experience the latter.

Floating down the rivers through this park must be incredible during the cooler months, which is when I will plan to return.
Thanks to @uglyguckling_ for wearing her 'honey mustard yellow' to stand out among the various greens and browns.

More from today from the sand hills around the Congaree Bluffs- we saw a ton of turkey vultures, two turtles, and a snowy egret- but sadly no armadillos ☹️
🏃‍♀️
1. Super creepy trap (for boar probably?) it was full of rotting meat and surrounded by a ton of turkey vultures 🦅
2. A trail in the Congaree Bluffs Wildlife Management Area - this was DEEP sand and some nice hills- a real 🍑 workout 🤓
3. Jeremy on the boardwalk at Congaree National Park running through the cypress trees.

Swamp running. Not pictured: 80 million mosquitoes 😭
🏃‍♀️
So this is what they call a lake here in South Carolina in Congaree National Park 🤷‍♀️ seriously though it’s gorgeous here but definitely bring your big spray!
🏃‍♀️
Slow today because of my back (I think I managed one or two 12 minute miles hah) but we got in 9 miles over the course of the day in and around Congaree National Park....ran up some deep sandy hills which was a little different than what we normally do 😁

Another one of my favorites from Congaree National Park

Observation is about the close act of seeing. It’s a basic, fundamental action that helps us make sense of the world around us. Close observation requires that we slow down to focus and take in the details.
_
Just looking doesn’t do that. Looking is glancing. Observation is about seeing deeply.
_
And that’s one of the benefits of painting, either making one or really seeing one.
_
Painting is about observation. The more I paint, the more I see.

What does your favorite painting help you see?

There’s a lot to do at #Congaree #NationalPark in #SouthCarolina. Whether you prefer paddling Cedar Creek, roughing it on a backcountry camping trip, fishing in oxbow lake, having a picnic, joining a ranger-led "Owl Prowl" or just taking a short stroll on the boardwalk, the park is ready to welcome you. #Fall photo @congareenps by National Park Service. #FindYourPark #usinterior

The skies (mostly) cleared up early Sunday morning and I was able to get a glimpse of a few Perseid meteor the day before the peak. One point of extra credit will be given to anyone locating Cassiopeia in this photo, and 3 points will be given to anyone spotting the Andromeda Galaxy!
