"This was shot from a float-plane on the way out to Lake Clark National Park and Preserve to photograph bears on Crescent lake. It was an incredible experience and the entire area is gorgeous. I had so much fun with such great people."🛩

As we scrambled out of our cozy sleeping bags to soak in the morning light and sip on hot coffee, everything seemed to stand still.
Away from the hustle & bustle, the only sound was the soft rustling of wind through the alpine trees and the distant singing of birds awaking for another glorious day 🙌🏻

The blurring of seasons... Snowfall in September is something I’ve never seen before but after a hot and dry summer, it was a welcomed sight the past couple days ❄️
Would it really be an adventure if I was not found dangling my boots over the edge of a 400-ft cliff? There is something unnerving about the ground in Iceland - it reminds me a lot of the mountains on Kauai… the ground was soft and it crumbled under my boots ever so slightly with every step. I crawled out to the ledge and sat in this spot overlooking the sea cliffs at Vík, I closed my eyes and took a moment to appreciate the warmth of the midday sun shining on my face… and then I opened my eyes and my stomach dropped. It is not the granite, limestone and shale that I am used to, at home I could have sat here all day, enjoyed a picnic and taken a nap but I only lasted a few minutes in this spot feeling the soft earth in my hands. Maybe this means I need to spend more time in places like this that scare me a little extra.

When I first started working for the National Park Service, I knew that it would be difficult to land a permanent job. So many people tried to dissuade me and I heard horror story after horror story of people working for 10+ years and not being able to get one. But I knew this was the career path I wanted. So I mentally prepared myself for years of constantly moving and park hopping as a seasonal. I knew it would be worth the sacrifice. As I did that, I worked hard. Always maintaining 3+ jobs at a time while in a park to supplement my income for the off season and volunteering on my days off for the work experience, while all the while remembering to make time for adventures, photography, and self care. It has been exhausting.
Over the years I have been able to experience a lot of cool places as a result of this though and I will always remember this time as being something incredibly special and something I will forever cherish.
However, this chapter in my life is coming to close.
Why? Because I have been offered and accepted one of those coveted permanent positions in none other than ZION NATIONAL PARK! I knew that my hard work would eventually pay off, and it has much sooner than I expected. I am so excited to put down some roots in a place and community that is so near and dear to my heart. So come November 12, its me and you Zion. Never let someone tell you that your dreams are impossible.

we came for Fall and found ourselves in Narnia. slogging through September snows, warming cold feet with hot water bottles, talking about whatever inside of the tent. these conditions made for some exciting days, some surprising views and a few unforgettable memories. and really, not much is better than that.
