Last weekend, I headed up to Canada with a couple of friends for our annual winter trip, this is how it went down
Be sure that when you venture out in the great big world that we have, you notice everything and truly feel each and every moment. If you do, you will soon realize that life is full of moments like the movies.
I found myself beginning to truly feel every moment more and more and appreciate each moment for what it was.
We quickly parked our kayaks onto the small sandy section that formed a cave into the cliff-side and took in the wonder of the art that nature put on display for us.
Nestled in the wilderness of Marquette, Michigan, lies an ancient and relatively giant rocky peak called Hogback
One day I hope to return though and experience stargazing in the middle of the Pacific Ocean once again, but until then Hawaii and this trip will have a special place in my heart and I hope to hold onto the feeling I had that first night we were there.
This trip was a good, short weekend expedition that introduced us to a new part of the world, helping me to draw closer to myself and re-educating us on the notion that we need to try our best to keep the world and its ecosystems beautiful.
The world is a beautifully bizarre place and if you make the choice to venture out into the wilderness of it, away big cities and into nature, you will find a world of discovery and a whole new view of Life and the Universe.
Imagine our spaceship if all 7.5 billion astronauts learned to respect and appreciate each others differences and focus on helping one another.
Those who make the journey are rewarded with a view that is unmatched in its uniqueness.
Exploring allows me to learn a little bit more every day about the Universe and allows me to uncover its mysteries that were laid out for us to find.
The walk to the shoreline seemed to take forever, which was probably due to our excitement of actually walking along the cliffs and viewing them up close in person, views we have dreamed of and areas we strongly desired to be in.
We then walked along the short path through the trees to the beach and as the trees began to clear and the northern part of the sky became visible we noticed something magical in the night.
To be so close to something so unique and full of wonder, it was as if giants came long ago and painted their story on the walls of these giant cliffs. In this case though it was nature putting its artistry on for those who ventured out into the wilderness to find it.
Hiked 2 miles in sub zero temps to check out the remote Eben Ice Caves and experienced my eyelashes freezing for the first time.
We have this Earth, this planet. It is our home, our place where we fell in Love, went on extraordinary adventures, came alive, and discovered ourselves.
Getting the chance to steal a sunset on the top of Mauna Kea (~14,000 ft.) with the best kind of travel companions, just might have been the most beautiful thing I have experienced
Everything happens for a reason, so keep an open mind and an open heart guided by Love.
When you travel you always have to keep your eyes open and take time to take a step back appreciate each moment for what it is
This past weekend we headed up to Picture Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to check out the fall colors, and we decided to tent camp, despite the warnings about temperatures that would drop below freezing, power outages, and high winds. When we reached our campsite late Thursday night, the wind had died downContinue reading “Camping Stories: Snow & Cold”
