Rest in Peace Angela

Me and Angela a few years ago.
In 2009 I met Angela Spicer at a casino in Dillon, Montana. It was the casino that was straight across the street from my house at the time. When I first met her, she was very kind and complimentary. We talked about everything from the casino to art to music and more. We decided to exchange phone numbers and shortly after developed a friendship that lasted almost a decade.

Angela was a psychic medium with a lot confidence. When I first met her, she told me about my grandmother and even said she was standing next to me. Without even knowing anything, she blurted out her name. She was definitely fascinating in that aspect and used her gifts often to help others without asking for a single cent. She lent her gifts to the Morgan Ingram case and saw a lot of things regarding Morgan's stalking and her murder. Although Angela didn't have a lot of ambition, she was a visionary in a sense where she saw good in virtually everything and wanted to do good things in her life for herself and for others. Every time we would hang out, there was never a dull moment or any hatred and anger towards anything.

Angela knew what was death was like because as a psychic medium, she was able to feel so much when communicating with spirits. I remember talking to her on the phone and I asked her about death. She told me it was like a rebirth. As your body dies, your soul never does.

Today, I am so heartbroken as I type this, as I learned that she has passed away. At just 35 years of age, I did not learn about the news from anyone close to her nor did I receive a phone call either. I heard of her passing on her Facebook under her final post which was posted yesterday. I am shocked because she usually calls me; however, I had my phone number changed and she could not reach me.

Angela was found dead in her car, which was parked in a parking lot of a grocery store in Ely, Nevada. She had plans to check herself into a mental hospital, as she met a guy in Ely and the guy left her for another woman. Her ex Clint from Wyoming is a nice person and told me that she had plans to bring her stuff to his place. I actually saw the text messages and exchanges the night before she died today between those two.

She never made it to Clint's house.

As an investigation is being held regarding her death, some of her closest friends believe the man she was dating had something to do with her death, as he went and used her vehicle after she was found, however, Angela has a history of suicide attempts over various men and she also has several health problems. There is talk from other friends that she may have died from taking her insulin and not eating, when it is very important to do so. I could probably speculate, but I am too sad to think right now. It is as if this is not even real.

I will never forget the memories with Angela. Going to the amusement park with her and riding the rides while taking pictures and stuffing our faces with carnival candy, going shopping with her and eating out afterwards, cooking food with her and having her try an array of plant based favorites and just having a wonderful time. Every time she and I hung out, it was always a blast; however, we only hung out a few times. We talked more via text and/or phone more than anything. I haven't seen Angela in a few years and it has been months since we last spoke. I am very sad today regarding her death.

I am very sad today. Rest in Peace, Angela. You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten.

Welcome to Yellowstone National Park 2012

Yellowstone is such a fascinating place. If you haven't had the opportunity to visit, I truly recommend visiting today. You will never see a place like this ever in your lifetime.

I spent the entire day yesterday at Yellowstone

I truly apologize for not keeping you as updated as I should be. Life does get busy, however; in the end, I should always include you in my life. So, as I am off for a few days from work, I decided to take a trip to Yellowstone National Park yesterday. 

I entered the park via West Yellowstone, where they held their "crazy day" event which was manifested with great deals on souvenirs, as well as, food and other fun. I also managed to run into friends and acquaintances when walking through the areas. Despite being relatively scorching hot, I had a great time. 

I didn't see everything (which is truly impossible for just a one-day-trip), but managed to see the things that I wanted to see for quite a while including the Steamboat Geyser, the largest active geyser in the world and at Yellowstone. I am getting a new laptop, so I will post pictures soon. In the mean time, I hope you are doing great and I promise that I will do my best to blog more.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and day.

A look at Gibbon Falls at Yellowstone National Park

Gibbon Falls is an incredible waterfall on the Gibbon river. With an over 80 foot drop, the Gibbon Falls is just another fascinating site and reason to visit at Yellowstone National Park. The Falls Overlook on the Gibbon Falls trail is 400 feet as the Lower Outlook is 1,000 feet.

Visiting Yellowstone National Park for the First Time, July 16th 2011

Yellowstone National Park is one of the most popular attractions in the world today. Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Yellowstone National Park for the first time.

After about driving 2 hours from my main residence in Dillon, MT to West Yellowstone, MT, I was about to enter the park. I never saw it, but have been so fascinated by what it represents and how important it is to world, as we know it. The significance of this attraction is so intriguing. The mountains are so picturesque, I felt like I was entering an animated fairy tale or a scene to a fantasy fiction flick.

Some of the best recreational activities at Yellowstone include: sightseeing and photography, hiking, camping, boating, and fishing. Although I have yet to see a wolf, I have seen both a black and grizzly bear, bison, an array of elk, and a moose. The animals are endless. There is an assortment of birds and plants, including rarities that can only be found in the park. The ecosystem at Yellowstone is quite possibly the oldest, yet largest ecosystem in the world.

There are a variety of lakes, as well as, waterfalls which contribute to the amazing ambiance and scenery. The trees are relatively beautiful, however; seeing the resulted damage of the forest fires which occurred unpredictable from the 1980's and 1990's, as well as, 2000's was relatively depressing.

The attractions vary. Some of my favorites include: the Kepler Cascades, the Steamboat Geyser, the Midway Geyser Basin, and much more. I have yet to see everything, but intend to do so. The smell of sulfur varies around the park and is not always prevalent.

The Yellowstone Caldera is the largest super volcano in North America. What I found so incredibly fascinating was the fact that the rock in the actual park itself is linked to the Yellowstone Caldera super volcano. The ranger informed me that the rock is estimated to be over 2 million years old with the last eruption occurring over 70,000 years ago.

I absolutely love Yellowstone National Park. In fact, I love it so much that I bought an entire year membership and have visited this underrated park four times within the month of July alone. I recommend visiting Yellowstone National Park, as I definitely intend to visit again very soon. I am definitely looking forward to visiting in the Spring, Fall, and Winter season.

A look at the Kepler Cascades at Yellowstone National Park

When visiting Yellowstone this weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the Kepler Cascades. I was so intrigued by them, as they are so incredibly fascinating. I actually walked a little down from the cliff to get the second shot. Probably not the smartest thing I have done, but the picture was worth and I am still alive. If you ever visit Yellowstone National Park, I truly recommend checking out the Kepler Cascades.
