Long before foreign vessels arrived to the western shores of Vancouver island, it was occupied by Huu-ay-aht, Ditidaht and pacheedaht First Nations for countless generations. Ancient trails and paddling routes webbed their way through the lush west coast jungle and rugged pacific northwest shoreline.
Once the sail boats of European settlers started making their way along the western shores, it didn't take long for this treacherous stretch of sea to gain a reputation as the graveyard of the Pacific. This eventually prompted the construction of the Dominion Lifesaving Trail in 1907 to help facilitate the rescue of shipwreck survivors along the coastline. The trail eventually fell into a state of disrepair until it was picked up by the park service and became part of Pacific Rim National Park in 1973.
Our seven day trip with @bcatours along the 75 kilometers of beach, trail and uncountable ladders was an unforgettable experience. This trail possesses so much character and natural beauty that it's difficult to take it all in while you slog your way through soft sand and slick root mazes. A huge thank you to our guides @dannys.page and @geeejoness for showing us the way.
Cochem Castle dates back to the first millennium, the year 1000 A.D. It was the home of the Palatinate counts and was built on the orders of Count Ezzo.
The first historical mention of this castle is from 1051, when it was given as a gift to a nephew, Henry I by Richeza, the oldest daughter of Ezzo and one-time Queen of Poland.
The Reichsburg Cochem was used mainly as a defensive structure. It was said that at one time, it housed as many as 40,000 knights!
The Sun King Louis XIV attacked and burned the Reichsburg to the ground in 1688. It wasn’t until 1868 that Mr. Louis Ravené, a Berlin businessman, began to reconstruct it in the Neo-Gothic style that we see today.🏰

Do you ever look at a photo and wonder how the photographer was feeling at the time it was taken? It could be a very colorful, joyful looking photo and yet the photographer could have been feeling inadequate or even melancholy at the time. This is often one of the things I think about when I look at a photo. Even of my own ~
The piercing yellow gaze of the black currawong. These endemic Tasmanian birds are very bold and intelligent. Their call is otherworldly and incredibly varied. They often follow you in flocks as you hike, loping from tree to tree with their distinctive nonchalant style of flight. I love them. | Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair NP, Tasmania, Australia

يك تابستان بى رمق ديگر در كنار سيل عظيمى از بغض هاى فرزندانم گذشت.
تابستانى كه آفتاب داغ و بى سابقه اش تنها كوچكترين بخشى از اين بغض ها را هم تشكيل نميداد.
كه اى كاش همه ى غم ها از اين خورشيد سوزان و زيبا بود و نه از تازيانه هاى بى حد اشك و خون
من اما اشك نمى ريزم كه نه باكى دارم از فرداهاى تاريك
و نه گله اى از فرزندانم كه به مهاجرت بيشتر از من دل بسته اند
من افسوس روزهايى را مى خورم كه خواهند آمد روشن تر از هر روزى اما شايد ديگر خونى در رگ ها جارى نباشد كه به استقبالشان بيايد..
باشد كه روزى بدون اندوه و خونريزى چشم هايمان را باز كنيم و جز شادى هيچ لغتى احساساتمان را بيان نكند.

Revisiting old favorites in Wyoming.
I’ve noticed, whenever I return to places, it’s inevitable that old memories prop up. This year, after meeting @lukekonarzewski, I spent this morning thinking about moments that change our course in life. He has a great story about these magnificent mountains that I’ve been lucky enough to hear.
But it reminded me, even with how foggy future can be, just how pivotal this year has been, in many ways. Maybe that’s why it’s good to return, sometimes, just to see how much we’ve changed, how far we’ve come.
