The Adventure – Mt Rainier Photo Safari (August 2014)

What a joy to participate with THE ADVENTURE™ and create a Mount Rainier Photo Safari! As the host city of Landmark’s Team, Management, and Leadership Program we had nearly 900 team members join us from all over North America and we had ladies from Boston, Florida, Washington DC, San Diego, and Indiana along on this wonderful safari. Amazing!

The forecast was for thunder storms, and we got off to a late start … neither deterred us, nor impacted the magnificence of Mount Rainier’s beauty!! The photo conditions, well … those were WAAAAAAAAAAY less than ideal.  My Sony Alpha 380 got pushed to her limits and my post processing skills put to good use.  :o)

Here are the best images from the safari … they barely scratch the surface of what the eyes saw and go no where near the magic of the bonds we formed as we spent the day and sunset together in nature!!!

Love to Michele, Gloria, Lily, Sarah, Laura, and Mary … thank you for your lovely company and the honor of sharing the fabulous Pacific Northwest!!!

“If a drop of water falls in a lake
there is no identity.
But if it falls on a leaf of a lotus
it shines like a pearl.
So choose the best place where you would shine.”

“We grow great by dreams.
All big men are dreamers.
They see things in the soft haze of a spring day
or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening.
Some of us let these great dreams die,
but others nourish and protect them;
nurse them through bad days
till they bring them to the sunshine and light
which comes always to those who
sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.”

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it.
Notice the bumble bee, the small child,
and the smiling faces.
Smell the rain, and feel the wind.
Live your life to the fullest potential,
and fight for your dreams.”
