In my mind, this was the game winning super-bowl touchdown πŸ™ŒπŸ˜„
I love getting out and playing football with my friends, especially this time of year. The crisp autumn air and changing leaves just make it feel like its football season.
Plus, football is a great way to get some exercise in while having fun with your friends, so get out there and play 🏈

Can you spot me down there? 🚢🏼
This spot in Dixville Notch State Park was probably my favorite lookout that we hiked to in New Hampshire.
It was an early morning but atleast if the hike up at sunrise wasn’t enough to wake me up, walking the spine out to the end of this cliff certainly did the trick! πŸ˜„

I loved looking down on the rivers in New Hampshire, as they cut through a sea of color. πŸπŸ’§πŸ‚ -
This certainly is such a beautiful world that we are blessed to call home πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

The crisp autumn air, the beautiful colors around every bend... there’s just something about fall that makes it my favorite season for a roadtrip. πŸπŸš™πŸ‚
Thanks to my brother @joshmatti for joining me on this year’s trip.
Already looking forward to next year’s trip! πŸ˜„

The colors I saw up in New Hampshire this year were the most vibrant fall colors I’ve ever seen. I wish I could stay longer!
But now it’s West Virginia for a day and then Indiana for a few days before I go back to Seattle.
I hope you like fall colors though, because I have a few photos to share from the New Hampshire trip πŸ˜„πŸπŸ‚

Today’s sunrise over Squam Lake in New Hampshire 😊
Being a little further south really made a difference in the color of the trees. It’s still a little ways away from peak fall colors in this area but the hike up to West Rattlesnake was still beautiful, especially with this sunrise!

I don’t mind rainy days; it just means the waterfalls are fuller 😊
So with rain in the forecast, we spent yesterday chasing waterfalls in New Hampshire and found this beauty, Crystal Cascade Falls.

This ridge in Dixville Notch State Park has probably been my favorite view in New Hampshire so far.
It was a short but steep hike to the top but then we got to watch the golden sunrise light shoot through the valley below 😊

The fall colors in New Hampshire are out in full force! πŸ™ŒπŸ‚πŸ
I don’t think I’ve ever seen purple and pink trees like this. It’s incredible! 😍

My brother and I drove all the way to northern New Hampshire today in search of the best fall colors. We spent the day driving around on forest roads and then ended it with a hike up to this lookout tower for sunset. Watching the last light of the day illuminate the colorful valleys of northern New Hampshire was an unforgettable experience.

Currently running around my apartment packing for my next trip in the morning.
So here’s a shot from a less chaotic time, slowly wandering the shores of Emerald Lake in the early morning with @vagabondhearts and this cute puppy that she stole from some random person by the lake πŸ˜„

Sunrise over the famous Lake Bled.

We left our hotel well before sunrise and after a half hour drive, @vagabondhearts and I arrived at the trailhead up to this point.

It was a short walk up and then this view was our reward. So glad to finally see this sunrise view in person.

Lago di Braies with @vagabondhearts.

This was one of my favorite moments from this summer. It was just after sunrise on a foggy/rainy Monday morning so we even had the place all to ourselves for awhile πŸ‘Œ

I think this might be my favorite mountain that I’ve ever seen. It was definitely the one that left me the most in awe. -

I went up to Artist Point near Mt Baker yesterday to hike around and shoot some sunset portraits with @priya_mareedu.
It was my first time at Artist Point, and I can’t believe I had never made the drive up there before yesterday. It’s such a beautiful area!

I was looking through and editing some photos from past trips today and came across this one of @itsbigben in Italy. I had forgotten how colorful this lake was! It’s still probably the most colorful one I’ve ever seen. We sure do live in a beautiful world! 😊

On the summit of Vesper Peak, here’s @everchanginghorizon taking a moment to enjoy the beautiful mountain layers at sunrise.
This photo is from about the same spot as my last post, except this was shot on my telephoto lens and the other shot was on a wide angle lens.

Morning light during yesterday's summit of Vesper Peak in the Cascades.
Major props to @everchanginghorizon for making his way down onto that ridge.
See him way out there?
Tomorrow I'll share a shot of Quin on that same ridge but with my telephoto lens instead of my wide angle. Super stoked on that shot so stay tuned ✌️

"The way to do a great deal is to keep on doing a little. The way to do nothing at all is to be continually resolving that you will do everything." - Charles Spurgeon
-

Just some practical advice from Charles Spurgeon. -

I know I sometimes get overwhelmed with the tasks at hand, and try to focus on everything at once, but yet accomplish very little. When if I focused on a single task instead, accomplished it, and then moved on to the next I would accomplish a great deal more.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. A common saying about going with the flow and having a positive attitude when things outside of your control negatively affect your life.
But what if it was within your control, what if you were the one that gave yourself the lemons? Maybe you messed up, misjudged something, or completely failed in some way. It happens. and I think it is just as important to keep that positive attitude when you’re fully to blame. It’s often too easy to be your own worst critic but you’re not perfect, so learn from the experience and try to grow from it, but move forward.

For when you negatively dwell on something from the past, you give it power over you in the present.
So may you be more focused on your future than your past.

Sunrise at Peyto Lake.
Let us strive to encourage one another, focusing on people’s positive characteristics rather than their flaws.
It’s so easy to be critical of others, what they do or what they believe. But it is often so hard to know exactly what someone is going through or what is causing them to be or act a certain way. So lets err on the side of love, and have encouraging words as our default rather than critical observations. ✌️

This lake in Colorado was completely covered in fog when we arrived at this spot. So we waited around for awhile to see if it would clear up but the fog didn't really get any less thick. A little disappointed and not wanting to waste any more time, we headed back to the car and started driving away from the lake. But as soon as we got about a minute down the road, it started to clear up some! So we quickly pulled a u-turn and ran back to this spot to grab some photos like this one.

The moody weather and fall colors up in Alaska were perfect πŸ‘Œ

I wish I could have stayed longer and explored more, but I'm sure I'll be back to Alaska again. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite places.

I got up into the mountains here in Alaska today and it was wonderful 😊
There's just something about being on top of mountains like this that makes my heart so happy. πŸ”πŸ”πŸ”
Plus the beginning of the fall colors up here right now look so good. πŸ‚πŸπŸ‘Œ Thanks @hannahrosegray3 for grabbing this shot of me on today's adventure.
