Communication Breakdown Canyon. Definitely top class canyon for Oʻahu. Lots of crazy views, some ridiculously beautiful and rare plants, and by luck, Hurricane Hector left us with lots of crystal clear water running through the canyon. All of this combined with a great group of safe friends made for an awesome 13 hour canyon yesterday. Even though my body is so sore, my spirit is at an all time high! Thanks to everyone that made this descent come to life! • • • • #808canyons #canyoning #canyoneering #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

Sticking around so those colors can burn after the sun sets. Taken a month or so ago... I’m behind on pictures, got a stock pile to edit and put out. I’ll probably be more behind because of weekend adventures! Hope it rains real hard and clears by this weekend to turn on some waterfalls! • • • • #sunset #hawaii #cloudporn #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

“Goodness is about character - integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.” -Dennis Prager • Usually this spot is filled with people, we got it to ourselves on a Friday morning a few weeks ago. Miss these adventures with you. .falls • • • #waterfall #waterfallwednesday #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #wcw #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

“Sometimes we need to lose things in order to learn not only their value, but also their weight. Loss is a brilliant teacher that way; it can show us what’s important simply by creating space where it once was.” -Mark Groves • • Been digging @createthelove Instagram feed. • • • • #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

Practicing drops and breath holds yesterday in an underwater world. Some times you have to practice a skill to explore the world we live in. • • • #luckywelivehawaii #gopro #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

Even though I know how crazy beautiful this falls can get after a heavy rain, it’s always nice to be in good company with friends on the trail. The view isn’t always the reason I hike... • • • • #waterfall #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

In the beginning of the year there was no shortage of waterfalls. Every week we’d have a solid rain and the waterfalls would come out. Now not so much... where my summer storms at!? • • • #waterfall #waterfallwednesday #long_exposure #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

Wish upon a star. Haven’t gone out too much to shoot the Milky Way this season but this last time we had some good clear conditions. Hoping for more good conditions in the upcoming weeks and wishing for someone to have a speedy recovery! • • • • #milkyway #long_exposure #nightsky #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

My 4th Hawaii Conservation Conference, standing on giants. What a great conference... met new friends and stayed connected with old. Thanks to all that made this conference a success for me and helping me grow into a conservation professional! • • • • #conservehi #connecthi #hiconcon2018 #conservation #lovemyjob

Did one of my favorite crossover sections yesterday in the clouds. I was hoping for good conditions but the forecast was wrong. We did encounter some pockets of visibility and was super excited when it rolled out but the clouds would only part for a few seconds. Some times you have to hike in the clouds to appreciate those absolutely clear days. Hoping to return to this section soon on a clear day. • • • • #ksrt #koolau #summit #ridge #clouds #cloudporn #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu

Too often we take root in our own perspectives and push our values onto another when we should be trying to get the bigger picture. I struggle with this often. “To be a good citizen, it’s important to be able to put yourself in other people’s shoes and see the big picture. If everything you see is rooted in your own identity, that becomes difficult or impossible.” -Eli Pariser

Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit confused and out of it. Lots on my mind lately... but also happy it’s Friday! Hopefully find some nice open ridges this weekend! • • • • #waterfall #olympuscamera #olympusomd #olympusinspired #getolympus #microfournerds #luckywelivehawaii #beautifuldayinhawaiinei #earthpix #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #pixel_ig #venturehawaii #hawaiiunchained #ragehawaii #glimpseofhawaii #alohaoutdoors #alohabones #ig_oahu
