Waterfalls Close to Home September 1, 2011

Im sure many Southern Californians do not know these waterfalls exist, yet they are huge! Once you climb up enough to get to the waterfall, you can feel the air get lighter and cooler. Here in Cali it has been getting over a hundred degrees everyday, so going to the waterfall was a great idea. It is 70 feet tall, and it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. If you live any where by a mountain there is a chance for a waterfall. The place we went to is called Bonita Falls, but is in the town of Lytle Creek. It is less than a mile off the road so it is fairly easy. It cost me $5 to park, and they gave me a map of the waterfalls at the ranger station. Its too hard to explain in anything but pictures!!

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Fathers Day 2011 June 19, 2011

Happy Fathers Day to all the Fathers that have done so much to keep our lives stable. My father, Frank, has jumped through hoops for me and my family. I am completly appreciative and love him with all my heart. He has taught me how to fish, be polite and patient, and to love others around me. I would not be where I am today without him. SO I wanted to say Thank you. Love you Dad.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weighing Down the Pounds-Part 3 April 27, 2011

So as this is part 3 of a series on losing weight and gaining more energy every day, I must say, this one was difficult for me. This is the 3rd and final blog this one focusing on extreme workouts. The first was beginner workouts and the 2nd was moderate workouts. Working out for the people looking for some spice in their lives might be doing extreme excercises. Wether your an athlete or a hobbyist, extreme excercising should be about something you love to do. I am not a triathalon athlete, and not a daredevil, never skydived, bungee jumped, extreme rock climbed, gone wakeboarding , I’ve done nothing too crazy. Except the other day, I found a way to mix something I love, into extreme workouts.Austin and I went to a place in the San Bernardino, Ca Forest to a series of waterfalls called Bonita Falls, located in the town of Lytle Creek.

Weve been to Lytle Creek many times, and the times before this a park ranger told us about the 70 foot waterfalls, so we planned to take a trip back up there soon. We went up there last Saturday, and what an experience that was!

You start out crossing this small creek, barely up to your ankles, then there is about 10-15 mintues of flat rock crossing, and you just follow the water into this stretch of the mountains. So on the left all the sudden there is this little trail going up. You climb that (Its difficult but not too much) and the trail lasts about another 7-10 minutes. it ends up right in front of a waterfall. This waterfall is about 70 feet high. The mist of the falling water cools you down after that tough climb.

Heres some pictures of the intensity of it. =)

The trail ends next to the pool of water the waterfall falls into. It is surprisngly only like 3-4 feet deep , but the water was too cold to go in( Not until summer). You can touch the waterfall! So crazy. Then there is this huge slab of rock my boyfriend wanted to climb up, so up we went. The view was breathtaking, and that set us about halfway up the waterfall, but not able to touch it anymore. The day after, my legs were so sore. It was worth the climb, and I felt better after a couple days of recovery. I consider this extreme excercising, because we drove 30 minutes to get there, and took another 30 to hike there, and it was no easy hike! Extreme Excercising has to be done carefully, and make sure it is something you love to do. Being in nature I would say is the most popular way to extremely workout. You feel part of the earth when your out there, it relieves stress and improves your bodys functions. Some people do exercise everyday, but I know it is hard. So at least try to extremely excercise once a month to start! You will feel better in no time!

Much love from GreenLif3

 

Earth Day 2011 April 22, 2011

So I would say, for my green blog this is the most important day of the year. Its a day of helping the earth and making a difference. Wether its big or small, anything you do can make a change. Its days like this, where I think of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, still affecting the wildlife, or the radiation leak from the recent Japan earthquake that has millions of people out of their homes.

I just have to think about the power of positivity, and thought. If everyone thought a way of making the earth better, and healing itself, maybe it would. The effects of thought might look small but it is important to believe that words and thoughts can empower a human being to change their surroundings. Its all so complicated to explain, but even more to understand. The point is, teach good things to the next generation, about using organic ingredients, cleaning up the trash they leave, to think postitivly, and to love the earth, because the earth gives us life.

I am thankful for life, everyday I think how strange life is, and how I could make a difference. I hope this blog makes a difference in the lives out there. That would be  great.  I post this stuff, not for my own good (as I already have it in my head) but to teach or enlighten others out there. Being green isn’t about focusing just on earth, it’s about focusing on the lifestyle you live and how you can make it better.

Happy Earth Day 2011.

 

Oh Earth Day. 10 ways to help the earth. April 21, 2011

Here are some ideas for tomorrow, some are simple, some are complicated. I made a list of my top ten favorites!

1.)Plant a Tree- Anywhere, at home, a street, anywhere it seems fit.

2.)Use organic only products all day-anything from cleaning to cooking, maybe don’t eat take out for the day.

3.)Clean a river, lake, stream, highway, field, desert or trash. This is easiest wherever is closest to you.

.4)Create a drawing contest or coloring contest for the community.

5.)Create an eco-thon. Like a race, but where the proceeds go to a charity.

6.)Give Enivronmental Hero awards tothe people doing the most in your city.

7.)Hold a concert. Its easy to book bands these days of craigslist.

8.)Ask your grocery store manager for 500 paper bags. Have kids at a school marker them with an earth. On Earth Day have the grocers pass them out instead of plain ones.

9.)Create an Earth Day Mural. Really nice because art in a community is important.

10.)Write a Earth Day Article. =)

 

Earth Day 2011 April 20, 2011

So Earth day is scheduled for April 22nd 2011. I was just curious, because I can’t think of a thing unique to do for Earth Day..So I was wondering what everybodys else great ideas were. I feel it is my duty to Mother Earth to show my respect and gratitude on Earth Day.

Last year I made  my Green Lif3 site  So it will be my one year anniversary! Thats about how long it took me to kick off the website anyways! I am glad that I spent the entire year writing and researching green ideas. I know I can make an impact in at least someones life, and that alone makes me happy!

Let me know your ideas, I would love to post them, and I promise I will post a list of my ideas, before April 22nd! Thank you for your feedback! 

The art above, is just a little design I made! =)
