Gotta love those summer camping trips- leave work at 5, race up a mountain for some camping, then wake up early the next morning to race down in time to make it to work by 9am. Summer in AK makes them even better, since it’s daylight practically the whole time!
Here are a few photos from a recent Thursday evening trip up a mountain with my sweetie. It was so great!
We hiked up around 8pm amongst these beautiful meadows full of flowers. The town below was totally covered in clouds, and we were NOT expecting beautiful weather once we popped up above the cloud line.
The trail in context:
The sun started to set into the clouds
Our destination! The small cabin structure at the top-

11pm dinner around sunset..
It was a beautiful and fun trip! And I made it to work on time on Friday morning. Success!

FINALLY have some decent pictures of me actually en pointe.
Try not to look too hard at my technique.. there are some pretty annoying little things (and probably big things too, to be honest) that bug me in at least a couple of them, but we had limited time and I was too sore to keep taking the same pictures over and over again just because I was looking behind my arm instead of in front of it, or didn’t quite have my leg all the way into a real attitude yet when we took the picture, or WHATEVER. :P
Also, thanks to Mugdha for the amazing photog skills and willingness to be a tad self-indulgent on a Saturday afternoon with me…
Happy yucky Monday!
Sorry for the superfluous amount of pictures… I’m in love. Big time. They’re just so pretty, don’t you think? I sewed on the ribbons this weekend..
I have my first pointe class on Wednesday, and I will post some more pictures soon (hopefully some of me actually dancing in them).
For now, enjoy these… I certainly do :)
