This past week I went on an adventure! My sister, husband and I backpacked a 40 mile section of the John Muir Trail: Red's Meadow to Tuolumne Meadows. The turquoise blue alpine lakes, switchbacks zigzagging up mountains, babbling brooks, curious marmots and blue jays have combined into a memorable experience. I feel lucky to have experienced such serene beauty!
Funny enough, I brought 5 pieces of jewelry I sell online, along on the trip. I brought the jewelry in hopes of taking some cool photos, however, after the first day of vigorous hiking it became apparent I had been too ambitious. I brought hand harnesses to photograph but my hands looked worn and dirty, definitely did not want to document that! The turquoise jewelry, long dangle earrings and layering bracelets sat in a special case on the side of my bag, untouched. Oh well! Next time I will plan better.
