I spent the weekend prior to the Beloved Collective workshop in the Sequoia National Park. The workshop was being held in in LA, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to experience a moment with the largest living things on the planet. It was also the weekend of 9/11. As I was wholly unprepared to revisit all that happened 10 years ago, a day alone in nature - away from everyone and everything else - seemed like the best way for me to get through the day.
I arrived late on Saturday night and found a nice little campground to spend the night in. I got up early Sunday morning and headed straight into the heart of the park. There is so much I could say about the day... I made some notes about what I had experienced that day, which you'll see as the last of the photos. I spent a lot of time soaking things in... it was so refreshing to have the time to just sit and absorb the world around me. I had to leave early the next morning, but I did catch the sunrise over the mountains.
There are a lot of photos here, so consider yourself warned ;)
