Any big objective needs a solid partner, and I could think of no one better for this route than Sam England. We met in Alabama a decade ago, a place not exactly known as a destination among climbers. Over the intervening years, we'd connected for various objectives, some bigger than others. The running joke throughout was that our climbing days always featured a headlamp, often on each end of the affair. It wasn't that we were having epics and getting in over our heads (at least most of the time); we were both just stoked to go hard and climb long days. . . #yosemiteclimbing#yosemite#climbing#rockclimbing#toughordumber#alpinefamilyman @sam_england10

🚀NO LIMIT!! ... at one of the most amazing locations I have ever seen. He had a great post here about the "risk" involved: Ryan @handsomerobinson wrote: "☀️Good morning, Yosemite 😍 First off, yes, we did rig a highline there, and it was incredible ;) Second, in response to all of the safety near the edge comments, this is my solution: being harnessed in beyond the edge. It satisfies my desire to feel the call of the void, allows me to practice a moving meditation, all while appreciating the most beautiful places in the world. Lastly, to address all of the words of council: while I appreciate where people are coming from in terms of safety, it still constantly confuses me how many people feel that they have some right to tell others how to live their lives, especially when it’s from the comfort of their couch. *disclaimer: I agree that too many people these days try dangerous things for the wrong reasons and without proper knowledge. I assure you that’s not the case with me. “He who jumps into the void owes no explanation to those who stand and watch.” - Jean-Lux Godard — thank you @scott_goodknight for this quote!!" .

Glacier Point @yosemitenps. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME OR ON TRAIL folks! This is exactly why you don’t go into thunderstorms at high altitudes. Found out one brother was killed in the 70s at Moro Point in the Sequoias just minutes after taking a similar photo. Seek shelter immediately and get to lower elevation if this occurs or electronics and phones start acting weird. It’s not a weird vortex or phenomenon. Lightning produces a negative charge and this is the exact positive charge running through your body that the lightning seeks to strike at. It definitely doesn’t help standing next to the metal pole we are at, at the top of Glacier Point either. #trailsafety#lighting#weather#weatherpredictions#weird#donottrythisathone#mountains#hiking#safety#yosemite#yosemitenationalpark#california
Why was Yosemite preserved? . . 😎 ➡️In 1889, John Muir discovered that the vast meadows surrounding Yosemite Valley, which lacked government protection, were being overrun and destroyed by domestic sheep grazing. Muir and Robert Underwood Johnson, a fellow environmentalist and influential magazine editor, lobbied for national park status for the large wilderness area around Yosemite Valley. On October 1 of the following year, Congress set aside over 1,500 square miles of land (about the size of Rhode Island) for what would become Yosemite National Park, America’s third national park. In 1906, the state-controlled Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove came under federal jurisdiction with the rest of the park. . .. . ⛰Yosemite’s natural beauty is immortalized in the black-and-white landscape photographs of Ansel Adams (1902-1984), who at one point lived in the park and spent years photographing it. Today, over 3 million people get back to nature annually at Yosemite and check out such stunning landmarks as the 2,425-foot-high Yosemite Falls, one of the world’s tallest waterfalls; rock formations Half Dome and El Capitan, the largest granite monolith in the U.S.; and the three groves of giant sequoias, the world’s biggest trees.
On this day in 1864, President Lincoln signed the #yosemite Land Grant, protecting the Mariposa Grove and #yosemitevalley -- an area that would later become Yosemite National Park. It was the first time the government protected land because of its natural beauty so that people could enjoy it. Thanks to John Muir’s passionate writing to further protect the delicate ecosystem of the High Sierra, Yosemite #nationalpark became our nation’s 3rd national park 26 years later.

“Go where you feel most alive.” • I dont about you, but I feel most alive when im near or engulfed in nature, well mainly outside and breaking the routine! I mean think about it, living is not just working and reaching goals, yeah success thats nice, money you need it as well but at what cost? I mainly feel that we need to be careful not falling into the motions of the carousel called monotony where it goes around and around and before you know you missed out on the most important thing...your life! My peoples today take a moment and stop! Look around you and remember whats important in your life, family, friends, and your well being, before its to late!
