Owls hoot in B flat, cuckoos in D, but the water ouzel sings in the voice of the stream. She builds her nest back of the waterfalls so the water is a lullaby to the little ones. Must be where they learn it. -from Sarah Canary by Karen Fowler
I hope to hear the songs if these Ouzles one day. For now I enjoyed the sounds of this lovely little AZ fall and you can enjoy this photo. 🐦 #FunFact : Water Ouzel [bird], aka American Dipper; John Muir devoted an entire chapter in one of his books, to the only aquatic songbird in N.America. Because they need clean water, seeing them nestle in a fall or steam indicates its superb 💦 quality. They are found in the Sierra Nevada year round and near unpolluted waters of mountain, coastal, and desert streams of the West.

A little full moon fun with the Pink moon. We’ve been isolating for the past several weeks while trying to still get a little fresh air in our neighborhood. We went out our backyard yesterday to watch the sunset and the beautiful moonrise.
We realized that we have many adventures from the past that we haven’t even shared on here yet. The past year got very busy with an overloaded work schedule, leaving not much time left for other things, including posting on here. Trying to find a balance with work and adventure.
Now, who knows what will happen next. Just trying to be safe and healthy in the meantime. .
In case you ever wondered what the scale was REALLY like at the Grand Canyon. 😱
All credit for this beautiful photo goes to @robbiegd11! It’s such a remarkable story that reminds me of kindness in the world and encourages me to stay positive at times like this. This was back in February, when Robin saw me twirling in the distance and snapped some photos, then scoured through Instagram tags of the Grand Canyon until she found me! One of the most wonderful surprise comments I’ve ever received on my feed was from Robin saying, “You don’t know me, but I SAW YOU at the Grand Canyon and I have photos I took of you from a distance perspective!” She was then kind enough to email me some of these photos. 🧡
Please live by Robin’s example, especially during these times when everything is so challenging and stressful. Remember that something you do can make an difference in someone else’s life—even if you don’t know them. 🤗
Physically home, mentally here (and elsewhere)😂. Who’s with me?⠀

Just around the river bend.
This sight is even more magnificent in reality. We booked it here from Monument Valley, racing the sun and hoping against hope to have some daylight left when we reached Page. What we couldn’t have known is that we’d get here just in the nick of time to see the last rays of sunlight sink over the canyon. And seeing the final traces of light and color dance over the horizon as everyone else filtered out and left? Completely worth it (even if we were the last ones fumbling back to our car in the dark!).
After this moment, we drove back to Los Angeles. Was it doable? Yes. Would I suggest completing this drive at night again? Only if you have a minivan full of night owls chugging canned coffee! We didn’t return until around 4am.
What’s the craziest drive you’ve done?
