Fearless geyser – Yellowstone NP

Did you know there is a Fearless geyser in Yellowstone National Park 🏞? I spent a little extra time just sitting at this natural wonder. It would rumble & gurgle occasionally. Mud spews. Vents hiss.

New beginnings…logo unveil

I’m like a kid in a candy store…….how much fun is it creating your own, personalized logo? OMG, seriously so energized & fired up to set off on this new adventure for the next 8 months (or more, just maybe?!). I’m admittedly not the most creative mind in the room, but I actually tapped intoContinue reading “New beginnings…logo unveil”
