The colors that once were level with my eyes were now towering high several layers above.

πŸš£β€β™€οΈ This destination of the Grand Canyon was on day 4 of rafting on the Colorado River. It was a short hike with a big elevation gain that tested my balance as I walked along the edge of the cliff that Deer Creek had carved into the rock. This was one of many jaw dropping sights at this location. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #grandcanyon #grandcanyonnationalpark #nationalparkgeek #deercreek #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #discoverearth #nakedplanet #bestdestinations #wanderlust #optoutside #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #jaw_dropping_shots #allaboutadventures #oneturnoffthemainroad #ipulledoverforthis #wildcalifornia #earthpix #wilderness_culture #adventurenthusiasts #amongthewild #adventurefreaks #waterfall #waterfallsfordays #tourwest #rafting #hike #coloradoriver #canyon

It made me think about the renewing of the season of Spring which then made me think about Jesus dying on the cross giving us new life. I hope you have a great Easter! β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #easter #happyeaster #heisrisen #godisgood #cross #hediedforus #abc30insider #ipulledoverforthis #oneturnoffthemainroad #discoverfresno #flower #flowers #morningwalk #california #ig_photooftheday #ig_captures #viewsfromcalifornia #wildcalifornia #californiacaptures #california4fun #iphonephotography #iphone

I set my phone to take me to the visitor center where I grabbed a map and was able to get information on the different concentrations of flowers. The trip did not disappoint with the different options within close proximity. The hills along highway 58 were unreal as they sat in the distance giving a bright yellow backdrop. It was an experience to remember. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #superbloom #superbloom2019 #carrizoplain #carrizoplainnationalmonument #abc30insider #ipulledoverforthis #neverstopexploring #beautifuldestinations #oneturnoffthemainroad #visitslo #viewsfromcalifornia #wildcalifornia #visitcalifornia #wilderness_culture #optoutside #flowers #adventurenthusiasts #amongthewild #wachthisinstagood #trackthebloom #spring #naturalcalifornia #beonksby #abc7eyewitness

I am not surprised at all that the movie won an Oscar and other respectful awards. I was surprised that it played tonight commercial free on Nat Geo when I was expecting to rent it once it came out later this week. There are several reasons I am posting these two pictures. One is that in the movie, there is a picture of @alexhonnold standing at this ledge looking down. These pictures were taken one week after he completed his free solo of El Capitan which at the time, I had no idea had happened. If you notice me in the second picture you can see that I am staying away from the edge because it is a 3,000 foot drop below. Alex climbed the 3,000 foot face of El Capitan with no ropes and here I was scared to get too close to the edge. I have a hard time wrapping my head around how he did it. The first picture shows someone who I don’t know who happened to be standing on the edge basically posing in a red jacket which reminded me of Alex’s red t-shirt he wore. Congrats to Alex and everyone who worked on the film. It will make every look at El Capitan even more magical. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #yosemite #ynp #elcapitan #nationalparkgeek #glacierpoint #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #abc30insider #discoverearth #nakedplanet #bestdestinations #wanderlust #shareyosemite #abc7eyewitness #visitcalifornia #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #theimaged #freesolo #jaw_dropping_shots #allaboutadventures #oneturnoffthemainroad #ipulledoverforthis #wildcalifornia #earthpix #wilderness_culture #adventurenthusiasts #wanderlust #amongthewild #adventurefreaks #natgeo
