Sometimes the drive can be the best part of any adventure... and in some cases, it becomes the adventure! #utahisrad

Only 10 days away from my first 100k!!Feeling the butterflies and starting to question myself. Have I put in enough miles? Should I have gotten a coach for something like this? I’m sort of winging it over here having never done this distance before.  I’m also getting super excited to get out there with everyone else taking in those alpine views and seeing how my body handles 60+ miles!! #nervousbutexcited 📷: @missshellshock ⛰

After spending a few very warm days in Zion, we were thrilled to roll into the much cooler and amazing Bryce National Park. This park definitely moved into our Top 5... just look at it!

I got to take my new camera out for a test run this morning 📷 I got a Sony A7Rii. I left at 3am to chase the sunrise like usual. I was overly stoked at how things were going, but I heard the subtle rolling of rocks on the mountain and I knew I was no longer alone in peace. Little did I know the sound was coming from these mountain goats that decided to enter my frame! 🐐

I was pushing the limits of my previous setup, so it was definitely time to upgrade. I could not be happier with this decision 🤘🏼

Spend enough time on the road living out of a tiny car, and you'll learn to jump at any rare opportunity for a hot shower. Or, like, an ice bath. That works too I guess.

Big cold water girl over here, always. Bonus points for going to Moraine this year, getting my swim in, and actually leaving in one piece/not in a heli this time. Haha. Oopsies. Wins all around. 🎉

Day 14 
Sleep in, easy day
Mr bubbles, soaking time
Epic waterfalls

Due to the early wake up the previous morning we slept in a bit. My mood felt a bit dampened by the fact that I awoke to swarming mosquitos in my vestibule. After a morning beer and breakfast I packed my stuff as fast as I could and bailed. A couple miles later and a thousand feet higher the skiters calmed down. We leisurely hiked until reaching a side trail a ranger had told us lead to a great hot springs called Mr. Bubbles. We opted to have lunch there and to have a soak. It was pristine. A constant jet of bubbles in the center of the pool was clearly the inspiration for the name. The mosquitos weren't terrible there but there were plenty of horse flies to keep our swatting hands active. The rest of the day consisted of epic waterfalls and gradual down hill hiking. It was by far the best section of Yellowstone.

A stormy & drizzly (typical) Alaskan day well spent in Juneau, Alaska - even though it was cloudy and semi-rainy, it was still such an amazing experience to see a little bit of Mendenhall Glacier, a few humpback whales and see Bald Eagles flying around everywhere! It was such a different experience from what I’m used to back home, but so incredible to see Eagles just chillen on the light posts on the side of the road, in the fields in flocks waiting for salmon and groups of them up in trees. And right before getting to the glacier, a huge piece of ice calved (broke off) at the toe (very front where it meets the water) of Mendenhall - if you look at the second picture, the dark spot near the center of the photo and at the toe of the glacier is where the fresh calving occurred... I wish I could’ve seen it happen, but nevertheless, the Inside Passage has been so beautiful! 🌧🦅 #MendenhallGlacier #Juneau #TongassNationalForest #FindYourPark #RadParks #Alaska #TravelAlaska #TheAlaskaLife #AlaskaDaily #NatureAlaska #AlaskaNationalParks #DailyAlaska #HerAlaskaLife #ILoveAlaska #PicYourParkContest

Happy 2nd Birthday LIV!
____________________________________
We adopted Liv 1 year ago today from the @utahhumane and couldn't be happier that this beautiful, spunky girl is part of our family.

In the past year Livie has become an avid hiker summiting a few prominent peaks like Mt Olympus. She's been on several camping trips including a couple trips to Moab and California. She also went on her first backpacking trip to Pittsburg Lake and just recently learned how to swim!

Livie loves food and is very smart and motivated which has helped with her training. Her favorite words are walkie, hikie, treat, get gator (one of her toys), find Dad, where's Mom and dinner time. 
Livie is the sweetest girl and we are so lucky to have her in our life. To many more adventures together.

Sometimes you just have to create your own little piece of sunshine! #magic #bunyamountains #earthgirladventures
There are two constants in life: 
1. Change 
2. The Outdoors. 
Sometimes change can be difficult, but challenging yourself weekly to explore somewhere different outdoors can help change become more normal. This can be walking around a new park, a new running route or a new mountain. -----------------------
What has helped you to cope with change? ----------------------

#kerabatpendaki_indonesia from @adamcharlescheek -  One of our favorite little camping spots tucked away in a nearby mountain lake. 🏔 It always seems to be open and waiting to welcome us back. But then we remember why, as the wind dies and the sun fades, Mosquitos!!!! It’s time to jump in the tent and enjoy each other’s company 😘⛺️
....and some world class star gazing ✨😍

"I #choosemountains and all their magnificent, restorative, healing powers because you never give up on what you love. 
They saved me already once years ago, when we first met and they revealed their magical affects to me. How they could make me so deliriously joyful in a way I had never experienced before.  I befriended a tribe of others who believed in their magic and life was never the same again. 
I loved to hike and backpack, both solo and with my tribe, and I was just beginning to learn how to climb the higher peaks. I landed my dream job as a flight attendant and was excited at the thought of exploring further than I’d ever been before. I was life-ing rather well.

2 weeks into my new career last year  I broke my neck in a freak accident. I couldn’t move my toes for the first few weeks, but with an amazing team of doctors and therapists I gained more and more movement back. I started walking. If I could walk, I could hike again. And if I could still do what I loved to do, then I was a lucky lady!

I was determined to celebrate my one year anniversary of my accident doing something far more amazing this year than last. So on 7/13/18, I hiked to High Rock Lookout, a place dear to my heart surrounded by numerous friends and family. It was steep, long and challenging in many ways, but I didn’t really notice any hardship as I was shrouded in love, support, encouragement, and gratitude. I’m still soaking in my mountain high.

Of course I find fulfillment and delight with my children along with other aspects of my life, but as a single mom I find that we must never deny ourselves our passions either. The tapestry of the trees, rocks, waters and all things beautiful and living that comprise the Mountains constantly fills me with Awe, and finding your Awe might just be the secret to life. I honestly couldn’t imagine life without this motivation and strive to keep working harder and to get my body stronger so I can keep answering the call. I can’t do it alone and having those phenomenal friends (and often my kids!) willing to lend a hand, quite literally, to help me get to where I feel most alive makes my heart want to explode with ecstasy." - @anna_cat_kaperick

a regular yoga practice can help you become more agile, aligned & in tune with your body which can benefit you when hiking across various terrains. asanas require holding poses for prolonged periods & builds endurance, which in turn allows you to cover longer distances on the trail without feeling as exhausted.

the hogsback, 5am
just as first color flooded the sky, we found ourselves clipping through the upper reaches of the mountain
we traded poles for tools and set to an upward march, the final 600 vertical feet. and it is vertical.
it’s hard to describe this feeling, hands pulling, feet pushing, lungs burning. it’s this seemingly weightless dance with the mountain’s side
don’t think. keep moving. sun will be up soon. heart is pounding, head is dizzy and throbbing with altitude
a glance over from your partner
“let’s get it done”

Perspective. I hope that we are all seeking that for our own understanding, for our own truth, for our own lives. When we truly gain a new perspective on a situation, or a problem, or something beautiful, it makes us aware that our own understanding is limited and can always be improved. Our hope is that we can always give each other and ourselves, the allowances needed to grow. Happy Thursday everyone. 🙏❤️ // 📸 @MirandaLeconte // @ASDT_adventures #AndShesDopeToo #WomenWhoLead #DiversifyOutdoors #OutdoorWomen #ChaseYourGOAT #ASDT

A year ago I was hiking with a good friend in Rainier National Park, admiring the beargrass, lupine, alpine lake and mountain views, and the warmth of the summer sun. All things that rejuvenate the soul. We were filling ourselves with beauty, peace, and the presence of each other when needed most. This summer is a time of reminiscing, giving thanks for all the beautiful things I’ve gotten to experience in past, embracing this currently summer of healing, and looking forward to future experiences in places I love most. But most importantly, looking forward to making those memories with people I love and care for most. One of the bigger things I’ve been learning through this injury is how important community is. It’s always about the people. Those are the memories that mean the most. And those are the people who will walk with you in good times and rough times...and even when you can’t walk. Hold onto those memories, people and make new ones that last 🙏

Day 13
4 a.m wake up
Dawn in the geyser basin
Escape old faithful

We got up really early to try and beat the crowds to the geyser basins. It was rough for me as I'm not exactly a morning person, but was soon excited and moving quickly as the early morning colors began to light up the sky. The boardwalks were empty and it was fun getting to see the geysers without all the crowds. We worked our way around as the sun came up. Shortly after the cars started to trickle down the roads. By the time we got to prismstic spring, buses had started showing up and the crowds surged in. We got down to the point where we had seen last year on the CDT and then hitched a ride the rest of the way to old faithful village. We hung out there drinking beers and eating bomb burritos until the heat of the day burned off. We headed out and straight into an afternoon storm immediately after. Luckly it only lasted for a bit and brought the temperature even further down. The hike to the campsite was uneventful but the mosquitos were ravenous and plenty. As such we retreated to tents right after getting to our site.

We got down to the point where we had seen last year on the CDT and then hitched a ride the rest of the way to old faithful village. We hung out there drinking beers and eating bomb burritos until the heat of the day burned off. We headed out and straight into an afternoon storm immediately after. Luckly it only lasted for a bit and brought the temperature even further down. The hike to the campsite was uneventful but the mosquitos were ravenous and plenty. As such we retreated to tents right after getting to our site.

Living and camping in Southern California we are very rarely near any type of water source. It was awesome camping at Zion’s South Campground with the Virgin River right across from our site. We spent every afternoon swimming and soaking in the water, keeping cool and rinsing off all that red mud!

As the race season came to a close last night I, I realized I learned 2 things:
 1. I love riding my bike
 2. I suck at riding my bike fast (especially uphill)

All in all, it was an epic season and can’t wait for next year when I may actually train to be prepared for it!

I could make so many tree puns with this post but I’ll just stick to something else.

The best start to the day. Definitely worth getting up at 3am to get out and run some technical trail on McNeil Point and Bald Mountain before work. #midweekescapechallenge PC: @theresasilveyra

The most beautiful moment of our #climb was watching the other #osat team walk across the #crater from the DC side to the true #summit. Meeting them at the top made my heart so full! I love my tribe!

My favorite part about climbing has been the relationships I’ve had the opportunity to build with some amazing people. I’ve learned that trust is paramount when it comes to mountaineering, and I’d trust these #ladies with my life.

It has been said by many and experienced by all, that a lack of knowledge creates fear. But also, that seeking said knowledge creates profound courage. So if you yourself have been seeking, we hope you can find just enough courage to come out and join us on an adventure...and just maybe we can help you find the rest!  #AndShesDopeToo

Fun fact, I was supposed to do a photoshoot trade with @cjdimmock yesterday morning.  We both had photos to take for @thesaltwatercollective.

I had an aggressive, deep sleep that had me wake up sideways on my bed, phone knocked onto my floor so I didn’t hear my alarm and poor Caley WAITED 45 MIN FOR MY ASS TO GET DOWN TO THE BEACH.

If you know me, you know I hate being late and I was absolutely mortified. Bad friend right here.

Anyways, I skipped out on any photos of myself and rushed down to the beach to shoot hers. And thank god she waited because dang she looks good. Swipe to see a few shots from the morning!

Side note friends, I have a few spots left in August for photoshoots that I won’t be late for ;) So tap the link in my bio to book yours in today xo —

@Regrann from @nicswaff - A little dirty, a lot of pack, views from the top of El Cap ⛰🤘🏼 First backcountry trip was a game changer and I could not think of any better way to start my 26th orbit around the sun. 🌞

Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, which expands 3.3 million acres, has been on my “to-do” (bucket) list for as long as I can remember & I am sooo incredibly grateful and appreciative of this entire experience. The beautiful glacial flour-filled lakes and rivers, the wildlife, the Alaskan Native culture... all of it has been amazing. I’ve worked my butt off & saved up for this vacation for over the past three years and being able to see Margerie Glacier and Grand Pacific Glacier in real life, with my own eyes, was... incredible - but, that doesn’t even describe it... it was an indescribable sight. The glaciers in Alaska are so big and beautiful & I feel so grateful to be one of the lucky ones that get a chance to see them before they retreat and are gone for good. We also had a chance to pass by Johns Hopkins Glacier, Reid Glacier and Lamplugh Glacier, as well as many other tidewater & cirque glaciers within the Fairweather Mountain Range. 🏔😍 #MargerieGlacier #GlacierBayNationalPark #FindYourPark #RadParks #Alaska #TravelAlaska #TheAlaskaLife #AlaskaDaily #NatureAlaska #AlaskaNationalParks #DailyAlaska #HerAlaskaLife #ILoveAlaska #PicYourParkContest

There's always going to be an obstacle. It's how you choose to get around it that determines the route. Pick the harder way, you'll learn some lessons. Pick the easier way, you'll get there faster but maybe not as strong. Everything is a decision, choose wisely and with determination. #SalomonSquad #TimeToPlay 📷: @krittylevorson

Do you think people are doing their best? .
.
I'm reading a book that is totally rocking my world. And you can expect a Radium Girls-style story update once I finish it with all my caffeinated thoughts, but this question in the book hit my heart and stuck with me. .
.
More often than not, when I'm struggling, wrestling, grappling with something, I just want label the document, start the email or tell the other person, "I'm doing my best." .
.
And yet, my initial reaction when I think about other people isn't as immediately generous. The perfectionist in me knows there's often times I could do better, and projects these unfair standards on others. The idea that there's people out there who wholeheartedly believe people are generally doing their best is a comforting and reassuring worldview. And one that I'm now working to adopt. .
. If we're wrong and people aren't generally doing their best, the only downside is I was a little extra generous to the people in my life and strangers. And that seems ok. Sincerely, a person generally trying their best. 📸 an 8 (now 9) year old on a fire tower with a camera. I miss winter/spring snowshoe hikes

"[...] Then you wake up one day about 40 years old and you say, “My God, I’ve arrived. I’m there.” And you don’t feel very different from what you’ve always felt.

Look at the people who live to retire; to put those savings away. And then when they’re 65 they don’t have any energy left.

They’re more or less impotent. And they go and rot in some, old peoples, senior citizens community.

Because we simply cheated ourselves the whole way down the line.

We thought of life by analogy with a journey, with a pilgrimage, which had a serious purpose at that end, and the thing was to get to that thing at that end. Success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you’re dead.

But we missed the point the whole way along.

It was a musical thing, and you were supposed to sing or to dance while the music was being played." - Alan Watts

Repost sage wisdom by @tandemtrekking - Y’all - today I actually did it. I got up at five and I went to the gym before work and I got my butt handed to me during a cycling class. I’ve mentioned a couple of times now that since starting my new job in April I’ve been finding it really hard to find time to train. I’ve been trying to give myself the grace and the space I need during this transition and I might finally be in a place to start ushering in self care. But I think this is such an important reminder about the way IG makes people’s lives seem and the way they actually are. I know that on the picture level, post level surface it looks like we adventure all the time and that probably makes it seem like we are super fit, super humans. But that’s not true. Lately I have been relying almost entirely on my mental strength to get me through our physical escapades. Which isn’t a great idea because when your body isn’t ready to do the work you require of it injury can occur. Turns out your mental muscles don’t decay as quickly as your bodily ones. The bottom line is we are all fighting our own battles to get outside but obstacles are no reason to give up. Be creative, take the time and the space you need and use what you’ve got.

Just tried to educate myself about nature’s crazy uncle, the porcupine, in order to panic less the next time I see one who is trying to eat my tent. Instead of rational mitigation techniques I’ve learned that people have woken up to a porkie LICKING THEIR FACE. So, that was fun, I’m never going outside again ✌🏼
