Photography is my passion. I do not only take wedding photos but also do portraits, landscapes, and street photography. This section represents my perspective on how I see the world through the lenses.

Walking on the Clouds

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
— Edward Abbey

It was the third day of this trip and I didn't even take a shower yet.

When I packed my bag for this trip I packed 6 t-shirts, underwear, socks , two pants, and two shorts. It was my third day and I only changed one t-shirt. The weather was cold and I wasn't sweat.

We came to our last day at Mount Rainier National Park. Our plan was to scout the location for sunrise pictures at Tipsoo Lake and sunset pictures at Frozen Lake.

Tipsoo Lake

We were getting TIRED. Of course, we have slept between 4-6 hours in these three days. We hiked 5-10 miles each day. As you can see, we slept in the van. We have two drivers on this trip.

Tipsoo Lake was just alright. We came and walked around. We didn't see anything interesting spot. Therefore, we decided to skip sunrise pictures tomorrow and sleep more!

GOOD FOR ME. HAHA

North Burroughs Mountain Trail

This hike was one of the most fun hike ever during this trip. We came back to Sunrise Visitor Center to hike on Sourdough Ridge Trailhead and connected to Wonderland Trail (46.915585, -121.663129). 

 Let's check the map again. We don't want to get lost.

We arrived at the Frozen Lake and the lake was just OKAY. Now there were two choices. Should we go back or hike higher.

We had an hour before sunset and we did not have a spot for the pictures yet.

We came to the point that we had to decide between going further and wish for the best spot, or going back go camp. WE SEE MOUNT RAINIER in the front of us and she is HUGE.

We decided to hike to the higher spot.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.

We were at 6,800 feet above the sea level. The view up here was breath taking. We MADE the right decision to hike up. I WAS WALKING ON THE CLOUDS. I wish I could everyone with me at the moments.
