LIFE IS A PROCESS OF BECOMING, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death. ~ Anaïs Nin 💙 - The hardest part is accepting that I have to move on from the best and happiest states. That the most perfect moments and chapters can’t last forever. That it’s necessary and good for me to move on from those, as much as it breaks my heart to do so. Leaving South America felt like this for me. New Zealand has been a very different trip so far and has taken some adjustment, a change of state. I felt alone and missed home for the first time in months this week.
This Saturday all National Parks in the US are admission free. What a wonderful opportunity to kick off National Park Week and open the hiking season! Here's Grand Teton for your inspiration. Few landscapes in the world are as striking and memorable as that of Grand Teton National Park. Grand Teton has a lot to offer whatever your interests. Mountains, valleys, lakes, rivers and skies are home to diverse and abundant forests, wildflowers and wildlife. The park also has a rich cultural history with old homesteads and cattle ranches to explore and photograph. Walk on a trail built by the Civilian Conservation Corps or one that American Indians or fur trappers might have used in the 1820s. Ride a bike or paddle a canoe. There is something for everyone. Let's get out and have some fun! #peakvisor
Thanks to the Easter holidays, I've finally found some time to go over the remaining #israel pics. I was following these guys for a while back at #ramoncrater when finally one of them stopped eating to look up for a fraction of a sec. Absolutely loved this magical place. Go there if you ever find yourself in the neighborhood!

One of us usually carry Elsa and the other one haul our gear while outdoors. We think it’s better this way since the visibility is much better during our walks. When I walk alone I have Elsa at the front and my backpack at the back. It’s warm but at the same time comfy and leveled. I memorize the obstacles in front of me and when I’m there I can “easily” get over it without looking too much. What’s your thoughts on this?
Schafer to Warren 22.10km (total 376.2km) photo: Me and my jetboil and #2 155m wooden trestle bridge built for log hauling in 1930’s The cold front arrived at midnight and it rained the whole night - thank goodness for the shelter where I was able to put my tent up in, and for ear plugs. I easily drowned out the rain on the tin roof of the wooden shelter. The weather has definitely taken a turn for the worse as regards temperatures. According to Willy’s Weather I am now sitting in 2 degrees and the rain comes down in spells and brings wind and even cooler temps. It even hailed tiny little pearl size beads which I thought was ❄️ snow 😂. It’s sooooo cold 🥶 lol, and I am seriously not fully prepared for arctic temperatures. But everyone else I have seen in the past 24 hrs is even less prepared than me. The walk was magnificent- the water everywhere was quite breath taking, flowing in little rivulets across my path . But once again a persons interpretation of how they see the walk is completely different from what is experienced. I was told flat, lovely and relaxed .... noooooo, it was hilly with many long ascents and slippery mulch. Nevertheless it was quite a scenic section between Schafer and Warren and the drama of the cold made it exciting. I hope I don’t get too much colder , 😂
