Steady as the stars in the woods
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning.
These days I shoot my personal work on film, but it sure makes me want to shoot all film when I’m up to my eyeballs in editing and these babies show up on my doorstep.
I’m thinking in the next year, I’ll offer a film wedding package because film is just too good. Digital’s got nothing on it.
We were heading to the back side of Yosemite, when we saw these trees in the distance.
To some of you this isn’t a big deal, but for these California evergreen people, it was BEAUTIFUL. Our tires screeched to a halt as we piled out of the car, crossed a stream, sprinted across a meadow, and stood in awe of these babies.
Uh, I would also like to mention that mid sprinting, I may have done a happy dance that caused my phone to fall out and be forever lost among the giant grassy meadow. But seriously, God? Well done. Your creation is beautiful.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” – John Muir
“When’s your next day off work? Adventure?”
These are words I could always say to Chad. Our first 18 weekends our freshmen year were dedicating to gathering up people in a car and going. Anywhere. Somewhere. Nowhere. Our kindred hearts took us on many adventures.
Living in the valley sometimes feels like cabin fever. The past couple of years I’ve worked hard to find contentment in this place and I think I have. But sometimes, you just need a mountain [and a waterfall doesn’t hurt.] So that’s what we did. Bryan, Chad, and I piled up into the car at 5 am. Just in time to watch the sunrise entering into Yosemite.
Safe to say that my wanderlust is cured
