Got to celebrate my 25th birthday (10/10) with some lovely people, too many to show or list but I am so grateful to have you all in my life. So many great experiences and memories. I don't have enough words to express my gratitude. Thank you all for being in my life. You keep me gracious, centered, and humble. . . . . . . . . . . #birthday #celebration #cake #25 #friends #friendship #love #grateful #Grace #gratitude #joy #happiness #photography

Friends make the trips. Old and new. Thanks Kevin (@thetofusaur) for flying up with me and being one of the best friends I've had for so many years. Thanks to Jessica (@tinklebergstiltskin) and Brandon (@cover_me_porkins) for showing us around on Saturday, especially for waking up early to go bouldering. It was good to see y'all. Honorable mention: Old Man Burke who came over from his island so that we could catch up and talk fish. No photos of him but he's a great mind and a great friend. . . . . . . . . . . . #Seattle #spiderman #mopop #travel #friends #friendship #photography #Fujifam #xt20 #travelling #bouldering #bff #instagood

Saw some Seattle landmarks while there. UPS waterfall, Space Needle, MoPop (which had a great Halloween themed exhibit), and Living Computers Museum (which had this really beautiful light in the stairway). Really neat areas filled with history of the city.

Seattle's fall colors settled in like a warm cup of coffee. Space Needle was a sight to behold. Perfect colors to celebrate my birthday! Back in Los Angeles but thinking of fall foliage. More sights to come. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #fall #Seattle #coffee #instagood #Fujifam #photography #nature #spaceneedle #trees #leaves #xt20

Flew to Seattle for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. Met with some friends to explore the city. Found that Seattle, and the people in it, take black and white well. My poor friend Brandon was suffering from a heavy headache but at least he looked artistic doing it. . . . . . . . . . . . #Seattle #travel #photography #blackandwhite #fujifilm #neverstopexploring #city #urbanphotography #friends

Some nights, you get some inspiring shots. This was at New Jack City, a popular climbing area. Nature continues to humble me. The vast expanse of space. There is so much in life that I feel we owe each other quality time and respect. Communication with understanding and directness so that we can share our ideas and our love more effectively. Communication with compassion and without pretense. . . . . . . . . . . . . #nature #optoutside #rei #photography #naturephotography #stars #space #Fujifam #xt20 #fujifilm #outdoors #camping #love #compassion #neverstopexploring #findyourpark

Went out to New Jack City this weekend with my best bud Kevin @thetofusaur . It had been a while since we did a duo trip. It was good to rejuvenate. More to come when I get to edit my photos. . . . . . . . . . #climbing #friendship #outdoors #neverstopexploring

Sunday, warm day out in Echo Cliffs. I linked the two pitches of Righteous Babe (5.8) into one. Bad ass crusher Monica (@monnsolo) did clean leads up pitch one of both Harvey (5.8, pic 1) and Head Wound (5.9). Practiced some top belay and rappeling (pic 2/3). Great views at the top!

On the way down from White Maiden, we hit up Left Ski Track (5.6). Here's Cynthia (@turtlerocket_5000) crushing the route and Ryan (@ryanmonroe1) being a fashionable belayer. Of course we hit up Idyology on the way out and the kind staff gave us a free dessert. We shared it with some fellow climbers that sat with us. . . . . . . . . . . #climbing #tradisrad #cake #food #foodporn #climbers #ladycrushers #photography #nature #fitness #health #friends #passion

Saturday, first time Tahquitz. Multipitch trad on White Maiden's Walkway (5.4, did 5.7 direct finish variation). 800 ft, 7 guidebook pitches done in 4. Thank you to Ryan (@ryanmonroe1) for being a great leader and to Cynthia (@turtlerocket_5000) for being a great person to switch belay responsibilities with. Great day of maximum sendage. We did another climb on the way out but more on that later... . . . . . . . . . . . #tradisrad #fitness #climbing #strength #nature #climbingismypassion #outdoorsphotography #fujifilm #xt20 #rei #hiking #photography #instagood #athletic #findyourpark

Great weekend full of climbing! Friday, went out to Wheeler Gorge in Ojai. Here's @andrewtippie pulling the crux move on Stuart's Rig/Stu Boy (5.10d/11a) as a birthday send. Got @alessandramanon on her first lead, ever, with Ripple Rider (5.8). You can see the stoke on her face after finishing in picture 3. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #climbing #climbingismypassion #fitness #nature #optoutside #outdoorsphotography #blackdiamond #sport #alwaysoutdoors #girlswhoclimb #ladycrushers

Last, but absolutely not the least, is Tony Memmel (@tonymemmel) and his wife Lesleigh (@lesleighmemmel) singing the "Lucky Fin Song" with the crowd. Tony's symbrachydactyly has not stopped him from being a phenomenal musician and having a heart of heaven. He is an ambassador of the nonprofit @lucky_fin_project which celebrates children with limb differences. Yes, this nonprofit is inspired by #nemo. Heartwarming music to inspire the best in all of us and to remind us to be kind to each other and respect each other. This is the final post for @bluebirdcafetn for this trip. I hope to come back and hear more amazing artists like I did that night. . . . . . . #music #luckyfinproject #guitar #charity #Nashville #musician #singing #joy #kindness #photography #love #artistry

The next fantastic artist from @bluebirdcafetn was Anne Buckle, going by her musical name Wildwood (@sheiswildwood) Amazing voice, passion, a great smile, sense of humor, and above all else artistry. Look out for music from her, she has a release slated soon. Got to hear the first preview of the release and it is AMAZING. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #music #wildwood #piano #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhite #Tennessee #Nashville #guitar #singer #art #city #fujifilm #Fujifam #instagood #photography

Went out to Echo Cliffs for the first time with some people from @strongholdclimb. Namely, @andrewtippie, Andrew Raymond, and @thekellyemoore. Taught @thekellyemoore how to rappel! Good day for learning skills. Fun 5.9s today. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #climbing #outdoorsphotography #nature #Samsung #photography #mountains #hiking #outdoors #rei #fitness #health
