Somewhere in the Mojave National Preserve. For a seemingly barren landscape the Mojave has a rich history. This is the ancestral home of the Mojave, Chemehuevi, and Vanyume and pictographs can be found throughout the desert landscape. Later miners and ranchers moved into the Mojave. The skeletons of corals and mines freckle the landscape. Today many people come to visit the Mojave. There are hiking trails, interpretive centers, and hundreds of miles of bumpy dirt roads to explore. Some of these roads have been used for hundreds of years and link up the precious water sources found in the desert. #mojavenationalpreserve #mojavedesert #mojaveroad #california #californiahistory

Flew to Lukla from Kathmandu early this morning via helicopter as the scheduled planes were unable to land with the cloud; 45mins and some amazing views over the valley! We had breakfast at Lukla then set off along the winding trail - 7 miles over 5 hours (with a break for lunch) until we reached Monzu at 2862m. Staying for the night in a tea house so got to cosy up with lots of warm tea and soup after a bit of a misty and rainy afternoon. Due to the heli/plane issues our bags are still somewhere on the trail but sure we will make do this evening despite no sleeping bag or wash kit! A good first day and looking forward to continuing along the trail to reach Namche Bazar tomorrow.🇳🇵🗻 .

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. -J. B. Priestley

When she was a baby getting layers on her felt impossible. Just keeping her gloves on was an endless battle. Now. She is OBSESSED! Give her all the layers and the gloves! She wants it all on and she is very proud. We've come a long ways.

A straight predictable river was not for her, she longed for twists turns and rapids.

She was meant to flow, not be still and stagnate. To create her own waves and ripples on her way.

She was a force of nature ready to take on any new route and destination. She was always moving forward, gently, fiercely, elegantly, powerfully on a journey to destinations only meant for her wild heart. ✨
Knowing and trusting that whatever the route the river carved out ahead of her was meant to be, for she trusted herself, her path and her instinct. ✨
She knew she was on her way to beautiful destinations, she listened to her callings and she was not willing to carry anything that did not serve her upstream. ✨

Day two - after breakfast (apple pancakes 😋) we set off about 9.15 from Monjo (2855m) and walked along the Everest Base Camp trail to Namche Bazar. Stunning views crossing three suspension bridges (minding the donkeys and dzos!) and zig zagging up dusty paths (17 according to @timmosedale). Took 2hr17 in total which felt fairly relaxed considering it usually takes 3-4hours. Had a bit of a rest in Namche, enjoying the chocolate donuts at the bakery and a bit of last minute kit shopping. Then trekked the last 1hr15 up to our tea house for the night at Kyangjuma (3600m). The owner Tashi welcomed us and we soon settled in with lots more ginger and lemon tea and then dinner. Cosy beds and even en suite loos - looking forward to resting here a couple of nights. 🇳🇵🗻.

"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean"🌲 John Muir always gets me!
Everyone should have a favorite John Muir quote. What's yours?

Behind the lens // Once in a while I post photos of other stuff. Colours. Scenes. The occasional average food plate. Purely for the love, and not for the likes (as proven by the dire number of likes because y'all just don't expect them to come from me) ⠀

I L O V E taking photographs and the process of creative expression and also to capture moments of time. My parents had a beautiful Pentax Asahi film camera that I am trying to restore - it took the most stunning photos. When I get time, once in a blue moon, I try to use it still, even if its a bit of a guessing game as the light meter is broken! In keeping up with the modern times, I got myself a lovely little Olympus OMD EM10 last year to practice on the regular with. I don't claim to be a great photographer by an means, but I'm definitely an improver! I love capturing other people, flowers, colour, moments of nature, and street scenes too. I actually LOVE directing other people to produce shots of others in their best light. At the very least, it's awesome to be up-skilling⠀
-⠀
I remember the first time I got to work with a Canon - one of my bestest humans in the world Duran @gentbot took us out to Muir Woods in California and let me use his beautiful gear. Even in that one afternoon amongst the oldest trees in the world, I learned something new - and didn't do a half bad job with what I got on film⠀
-⠀
So I wonder, what other thing do you love to do - regardless of whether you are "good" at it - apart from the things people assume you already do?⠀

“ The pursuit of Happyness” ❤

I adore this film so much but it gets to me very badly every time….. Only those who have ever been left suddenly alone and penniless with young children in tow will completely understand.

10 years on and my own pursuit of happiness has come to an end. Yes, I have found it. Most definitely not in material goods or wealth .....Those things I have never given much thought to. Which might explain why I am happy.

Right now I have two wonderful children who are growing into young adults to be very proud of, a partner who is out this world supportive and loving, I am pursuing my true passions in life and they are slowly but surely becoming my work and my health is back after years of chronic pain. How could I not be happy? I hope this rings true for some of you - I would love to hear your own happyness stories 🙂 .
