If you make everywhere you go home, then you'll never be homesick! I usually like decorating every tent I sleep in so it feels like a nice place to spend time in! Play card games in, drink hot chocolate with friends in...or in the case of lost lake, get rain leaked on in 🤕☔️
An old photo from New Zealand. I miss the sheep in New Zealand, I miss the Gatorade blue waters, the green island, the southern Alps, the people that didn't judge based on race, gender, or anything. The people who never thought you were creepy or that you wanted something from them for inviting them places or wanting to hang out with them. I miss the people that were truly genuine and kind hearted. Sometimes I wish everyone was like that but you're faced with the realities of today in America with sexism, racism, and all sorts of -ism's being right upfront and center. The people here proudly saying "I hope you understand but..." and then proceeding to be biased towards something very wrong that has nothing to do with your character but a stereotype. I miss the New Zealand people that cared truly for character and didn't look at what you looked like or what group you belonged to but really only wanted to be kind to you. If you haven't visited New Zealand, go for the people, go for the culture, forget the beautiful nature it has (even though driving in New Zealand truly sucks), but really, there is something to learn from them on how to live and love as people.
Everyone says light pollution is bad for seeing the night sky but from far away it's like having extra light shows to watch the milky way. The red lights behind the trees onto the clouds are all city lights. And they make the overall view much better 😊 so I guess negatives in life can be a positive if used in conjunction and moderation?
Cascade Canyon on the way up to Lake Solitude at Grand Tetons. This place has such a nice diverse wildlife and so many amazing views, flowers, meadows and rivers and swimming holes. One of the must visits in the US.
I have met lots of cool people in the outdoors, but @julie.kuhrt is one with an admirable determination to send above comfort level. I love that about her 😁 may we all keep pushing our own comfort levels and getting sendier every day all the time. #girlpower #🙋🏼⚡️
