Today we celebrate National Rosie the Riveter Day. A national day of recognition for all the women who supported the war effort on the WWII Home Front. “You must tell your children, putting modesty aside, that without us, without women, there would have been no spring 1945.” #FindYourPark#NationalRosietheRiveterDay#RosietheRiveterNPS
How beautiful it looks with or without snow, with or without rain, with or without fog, and with or without the light.
That's how all memories and life goals should be like: good regardless of the side or influencing elements. Nothing will ever be satisfying otherwise.
It's fun going through old pictures and finding variations in different shots you haven't looked at since the fact. I was only able to spend a day in Mount Rainier National Park and that short amount of time provided an amazing experience but I can't wait to go back in the future for a longer amount of time!
Today @builtbyzephyr CEO Brad Termini took @urbanlandinstitute San Diego Young Leaders Group through a private tour of The Park, Bankers Hill. An insane opportunity to show other young leaders in development what it’s all about! We are proud to participate, thanks for coming out ULI!!!
Once we finally admit to ourselves who we are and what we deserve, it’s as if our growth speeds exponentially forward. I recently and finally accepted that I am a highly sensitive, empathic person who needs her alone time and ever since, it seems I am only getting more and more so. Sometimes these traits can cause us to believe we are introverted, shy or antisocial, and we judge ourselves accordingly. With all the recent introspection, I’ve realized that community is everything to me, I love people and what each teaches us about life, but that doesn’t mean I can spend all my time saying yes to social activities or being in big group settings or even out in society. It’s not that I don’t love to be amongst fellow souls, it’s that I am very sensitive to the world around me. I feel EVERYTHING. I feel the collective energy of the world. I feel all the emotions that are present in the people around me. I feel society the moment I walk outside my door. And because I feel it and understand it, I give to it. I love to give to it. But it can be exhausting. So I’ve realized my quiet, alone time is not because I’m anti social or because I am separate from the world. It’s because I’m SO much a part of it, I know it so well in my bones, that I do my best to give it what it needs. And the only way I can go out and give it my best from my heart and soul is if I first give to myself. Is if I first have a heart bursting with the things that only self love and care can give- energy, love, resilience, joy, light. My sensitivity and consequent moments of retreat from our extroverted world do not separate me, but rather reconnect me to our world in the most passionate, caring, loving, giving way I can be. And just like extroverts, just like introverts, just like you or me, this way is beautiful too❤️
I'm sure this is the best view of the Golden Gate in San Francisco and I find it amazing because it's like the one place in the city I've never *not* been able to get a parking space. I have no idea if this is good luck or good planning. This is @NPS#fortpoint and it is magical—at least on the day I was there, the waves were kicking up super high, there were surfers in the water, and the spray was gargantuan enough to soak the cars in the parking lot. It's also an easy walk over to the bridge entrance itself, if you're looking to cross.
As I turned the corner for the finally push to Delicate Arch I was met with a crowd of tourist standing and watching as others try to crawl up the icy stairs and over the rest of the icy patches to the top. I stood there bewildered thinking “no way is the last 100 feet of this hike keeping me from sunset!!” I looked at the ground and analyzed my situation, I took my first step, I was fine. I then took another step; completely fine.. I looked at the people all around me crawling, slipping, and falling and then just walked right past them and up to the final view point. It was on this day I realized what an exceptional walker I am 😂 However, if you aren’t as confident in your walking abilities, I highly suggest yaktrax for your winter approach to Delicate Arch! // 🌨

This sunrise was very special to me. I traveled here for the first time years ago, before I had encountered photography and dreamed of being able to do its beauty justice when showing it to the world. I planned this trip years later, ready to document my experience in all its glory, only to have equipment malfunction, and long story short, ended up at this spot with the incorrect lens, and without the tripod I had intended to shoot with. I shrugged my shoulders and sent it anyways, knowing my skills and passion far surpassed any lack in equipment. I nestled myself between the 15+ male photographers lined up at the arch, with my dinky little 50mm lens and without a tripod, knowing I could create beautiful photos regardless. However I was feeling a little self conscious when an older man came up to me, and seemingly scoffed at my setup, asking me if that was the only equipment I had. As I said yes and turned my head, done with cocky male photographers as I seemingly always encounter... however his next action shocked me and made a wonderful impression on my trip. He told me to come to him as soon as the sun rose so I could borrow his tripod and wide angle lens for a second to sho. True to his word, he approached me at the peak of sunrise, and took time out of his craft to give me his tripod, and super high quality 12mm tamron lens for me to use. I set up quickly, in awe of this opportunity and his kindness. As someone who has never had the “right” or the “best” equipment, this experience filled my heart in the most magical way. It may be an over-photographed spot to some people, but to me, I was finally able to document this experience in a way I felt does it justice, thanks to this nice man from Allan’s Camera of Utah. I may never see him again, but his intentional act of kindness and generosity created a memory for me that will last a lifetime. For a spot that often has negative experiences between photographers fighting to “get the shot”, I thought this exchange was a beautiful picture of hope, reaffirming to me that photography is ALWAYS more valuable when the experience is treasured and shots are taken along the way, rather than the other way around. 🙏🏻🔥❤️
