New blog post up! Link in bio, lovelies.
It is appropriate that I've been doing this series of "rejected" Iceland photos lately. It wasn't planned, but it does somewhat tie in with today's post.
I get so caught up in doing everything the "right way," especially when it comes to the blog.
I know it's not perfect, but I'm always so obsessed with getting as close to it as I know how. But no matter what I do, my dumb brain is always telling me it's never good enough.
It's been overwhelming. It's just about broken my resolve. So I'm changing things up. I'm trying to reject this compulsion to be perfect.
Can you relate?
More glacier hunting in this ice playground today. This time, I’m in Argentina for the other side of Patagonia’s vast network of glaciers. These photos are my viewpoints from the ferry and above ground from the hike along the ridge there in Los Glaciares National Park ❄️😄 #glacier #glaciers #ice #argentina #elcalafate #icefordays
How to: Get Great Skin. You need to drink water, try to do a face mask at least once a week, moisturise daily, shower, and exfoliate. Drinking water doesn’t just help with your skin, it helps with metabolism and keeps you hydrated. Face masks can exfoliate, hydrate, and clean your face and are really good for maintaining good skin. Moisturising keeps your skin from getting dry, showering of course keeps you clean, and exfoliating cleans the dead skin cells from your skin. Make sure you have a morning and night skin routine and take care of your skin. #goodskin #tutorialtuesday #2018skingoals #glaciers #howtobasic #greatskin #loveyourselfalways #murky #sceneryshots

Video: Ice Slabs & Logs on Herbert River. Juneau, Alaska.
Nellie the Sheltie & I hiked to a log/ice jam to explore how log jams catch ice & gravel.
The Herbert River flows out of Herbert Glacier, just a few miles inland from the sea.
Record-setting warm periods (11 C, 52 F in Juneau) have increased flow and caused ice break up on the river (not from the glacier), sending sidewalk-sized slabs of ice careening downstream.
Sitka Spruce and Western Hemlock trees, undercut and uprooted by the river, also tumbled & floated down the river until shipwrecked on a giant gravel bar along a sharp river bend.
The logjam, gravel bar, and water caught an impressive icepack that looks like remains of a concrete building after an earthquake.
Herbert Glacier is one of many valley glaciers (like the Mendenhall Glacier) that branch off Juneau Icefield high in the Coast Range mountains.
The glacier is relatively small, but the icefield extends 140 km (87 mi) north to south and 75 km (47 mi) east to west, making it the 4th largest icefield in the Northern Hemisphere.

In Iceland the waterfalls chase you instead.
Finally reached and saw paradise.
