My Monday adventure this week was to the Oregon coast and it was amazing. The sun was out and the clouds were so puffy. The sand was wet from the tide going out when I got there and the reflection was perfect. #oregoncoast
I'm posting a few images from the #WindRiverProject which just was released in video (it's linked in my bio if you'd like to watch!) This particular image is one of my favorites; the falls between upper and lower Titcomb Lake. Our group came there to #climb but I found myself more drawn to photography while I was there. It was completely unexpected and I felt pretty bad that it hit me that way. I don't know if it was the birth of my daughter a few weeks before (2014) or if it was just an unforeseeable shift in my interest but since this point I haven't climbed nearly as much or felt the urge to get after it in the vertical world. It's like a switch flipped and from that point I accepted that I'd have to just find the next thing that caught my interest the way #climbing had done. I'm not sure why I'm including this; it's not technically part of the story. I know I had a tough time accepting that shift but once I did, I felt excitement about lots of new things that connect me to the outdoors in different ways. I haven't sold my ropes though, because I know many things that require love also require cyclical focus. I'll be back--and I am pretty sure there will be plenty of rock left to climb when I return!
