Isn't this site enough about me? You still need to know more than you already do??

I made it!!!! 26 miles…

I made it!!!! 26 miles of Inca trail in some extremely rough terrain in all different climates and elevations between 7k ft and 14k ft... I felt like I wanted to die in some places along it but my mind kept me going when my body wasn’t keeping up... there’s NO way I could have done this trek without the staff and help of @ValenciaTravelCusco... from the porters who carried our gear, the cooks that prepared incredible meals, and the guides that catered to our every need.. it was way over the top to what I’m used to when it comes to backpacking, but it was truly a VIP experience... —— 12 of us in our group, plus 4 more we didn’t know made the trekkers a FUN group of 16... I got to do my favorite EVERY night, shoot the stars thanks to our guide, Alex making sure that it happened, including 2 nights shooting in Inca ruins and 1 night on the actual Inca Trail along the way...... thank you also to @roxannelavin for planning and putting the group together!!! Sorry guys; you’re gonna see a lot of Peru photos in the next couple week... —— Thank you @alecarreras for the photo! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

Today is day 3 on…

Today is day 3 on the Inca trail and I have a little phone service at the top of a mountain overlooking Machu Picchu Mountain, and Aguas calientes so I thought I would post this picture from Sayamarca this morning... the weather has been absolutely amazing; we had a tiny bit of rain this afternoon but it stopped pretty quickly... the trail is rough but breathtakingly beautiful and I can’t wait to see the last ruins today, Winay Wayna... to me they might be the highlight of my trip next to Machu Picchu itself...I have so many photos and videos that don’t even do this place justice... @valenciatravelcusco has been a ridiculously fantastic tour company and I don’t think I would have made this journey successfully if it weren’t for their staff!! stay tuned... thank you @ac8c for the photo! Thank you @knoxxgear & @virusintl for my gear! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

We’re about 3 miles in…

We’re about 3 miles in and the weather is amazing!!!! The views are so beautiful and we’re already almost halfway through our first day hike... I’m really looking forward to getting to camp and scoping out some shots for tonight... I’m hoping for the amazing weather to continue but here in the Andes, you never know... tomorrow is the serious day, and I expect my phone service to end soon... —— Thank you @ValenciaTravelCusco for the awesome experience thus far! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

Everyday I’m looking around this…

Everyday I’m looking around this place and saying, wow, are these colors ever real?? It’s like they’re more vibrant than I’m used to and I keep trying to take it all in but it’s almost overwhelming! This was at Moray, an ancient Incan farm land that we tented ATVs to get to yesterday... the adventures have been so much fun out here!!! —- I’m up early this am with 15 others (12 in our group of friends) and we’re on our way to embark on the Inca Trail... this has been a bucket list item (top 3!!!) for very many years so I’m calm but the underlying theme is fear (of the trail) and excitement!!! I won’t be posting again till Saturday so wish me luck! —— Thank you @letalrose for the photo and again, happy birthday!! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

So if you turn around…

So if you turn around 180° at Rainbow Mountain, this is the view you get... it’s equally as breathtaking and awesome! If you make it out to Peru, make sure you hike all the way to the top... thank you to Marcial and @valenciatravelcusco for taking such awesome care of us this trip to Peru!! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

Another photo from my Arizona…

Another photo from my Arizona trip 2 week’s ago now.. I didn’t get the comp I wanted and we stayed out there after till 5am to get this composition... I lit the cave with a single lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) bounced at the wall, climbed across a very sketchy area with my gear and set up outside of it... this is 20 images stacked for Noise Reduction in Starry Landscape Stacker.. —— ISO 6400 F2.8 13 seconds @tokinausa 16-28 @ 28mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6dmk1 —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #arizona #arizona_landscapes #longexposure_shots #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #natgeo #itsamazingoutthere #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #arizona_hiking #arizonaphotographer #arizonahighways #arizonahiking

Hands down one of the…

Hands down one of the hardest hikes I have done, but happy to have crossed this off my bucket list! Rainbow Mountain in Peru is everything you’ve heard and more.. you start the hike at 14k ft and in 3 miles hike to 17k... the air is so thin, and the hike is easy going but so steep, with tons of people along it.. we had an amazing tour group, Valencia Travel who set up the super VIP experience for us which we totally weren’t expecting. Because the breakfast they cooked for us at basecamp with it’s amazing views of the alpacas and local village, we were delayed getting on trail. That meant we were late getting to the top (which I was ok with) because it meant that we would have less people up top.. we ended up at the very top and had it to ourselves for quite some time in the amazing and beautiful weather you see here in the photo.. it was QUITE windy and cold, but such an incredible experience and a must see.. we did feel the effects of elevation by the time we got down to base camp in spite of all the efforts we made to combat it... But today I woke up fully rested and ready to attack a new adventure!! —— 📸 @letalrose - @virusintl compression pant & local alpaca sweater. —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

After I hit up sedona…

After I hit up sedona last week, I had to work in PHX for a client so of course I called up my AZ peeps to see who could shoot.. @blazing_heavens and I took off to Superstition Mountains to get in some MW time in spite of the weather reports touting “mostly cloudy”... we ended up napping in the car because there were a number of clouds but they eventually cleared up and we explored in the dark.. I actually hate doing that (prefer scouting during the day and coming back) but I was able to find this composition and a couple others I liked... I shot a focus stack of 20 images in the foreground and 20 for the mountains and sky.. there’s plenty of light pollution from the bathrooms and surrounding areas that I didn’t need to light any of this scene.. after shooting till almost 5, I went in search of Derek who I found back in the car asleep.. —— ISO 6400 F 2.8 10 seconds 20 stacked for foreground & focus 20 stacked for sky & mountains —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #arizona #arizona_landscapes #longexposure_shots #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #natgeo #itsamazingoutthere #arizona_hiking #arizonaphotographer #arizonahighways #arizonahiking #superstitionmountains #chollacactus
