Thankful for the darkest days and how we can re-frame the frigid by drawing close together. Here’s 10 from that time we set up a dinner gathering on the ice. Comment below if you’re interested in being involved in a more spontaneous pop-up ice gathering this winter in the Delaware Water Gap. #blsicedinner 📷 @robyaskovic 📷 @alisonconklin

I like to plan out my adventures way too much before they happen. It's actually pretty ridiculous to be honest, but I don’t like surprises and I don’t like being unprepared. I will have a bad day if something throws me for a loop. It is something I am working on by trying to be more spontaneous with adventure and changing plans on the fly if need be.
I recently read an article on the @peakdesign blog by @christianmcld on finding new places and experiences, and the following quotes “Make a half-assed plan - Don’t plan so much. Just wander and wonder…” and “expect nothing” spoke to me (I also came across this article while I was planning aventures for the new year - so the timing was so fitting) (The full article is over at: https://journal.peakdesign.com/nothing-to-see-here)
Yesterday, I wanted to go for a hike in our river valley - I only planned the general area and we went from there deciding where to go and what to do in the moment. We ended up noticing the ice flowing down the river and decided to head on the bridge to check it out. We forgot about our hike and spent a good amount of time watching the ice floating by and occasionally crashing into the cement pillars on the bridge) some pieces of ice were so big that when they hit the pillar you would feel it. It was unbelievable! I didn’t take many photos, but ended up taking a fair amount of video on my dslr (I didn’t even want to try to shoot video and didn’t pack my gopro on purpose)
I am glad I set no expectations, and didn’t plan our day out - as this was a pretty cool experience that I might not have seen if I was dead set on going down another path or doing another activity!
Be open to adventure! You’ll never know what is around the corner!
❗️DID YOU KNOW ❗️
Did you know you cannot put plastic bags in single stream recycling receptacles? They must be recycled separately and therefore require their own process and bins. Here in Boulder, you can bring #plasticbags to Goodwill and they will recycle them for you! They also have a bin for old electronics (which should also not be recycled or thrown in your landfill-trash container 🗑🚯) #TheMoreYouKnow
Apple & Bacon Grilled Cheese. If you're in need of some new lunch ideas, then you've got to try this sandwich!
- 4 slices bread
- 2 slices bacon cut in half
- 4 oz. sharp white cheddar cheese sliced
- ½ apple thinly sliced
- Honey Dijon Kettle Brand Chips
Set a skillet over medium-low heat and add the bacon. Cook, flipping as needed until some of the fat has rendered out and the bacon is cooked to your liking. Remove and place on a paper towel-lined plate.
Increase the heat to medium and add two slices of bread. On each slice of bread, layer half the cheese, apples, and bacon, and then top with the second slices of bread.
Cook until the bottom of the sandwich is golden brown and the cheese begins to melt, then flip to cook the other side.
Serve with Honey Dijon Kettle Brand Chips on the side (or in your sandwich & enjoy!) This post was made possible by @kettlebrand #ad

Posting all these photos from Kanawha State Forest have made me want to look up the history about it a bit more. During the Great Depression, the area was bought for only $5 per acre! The initial work done creating KSF came from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Civilian Conservation Corp program!
"The cold night air has made my eyes swell to the point that I can barely open them, and they're watering endlessly; a product of sleeping in a mummy bag with only this strip of your face exposed to the elements. And just to make things even more uncomfortable, my socks are completely frozen in their own sweat. Fantastic."

So in love with this jacket from @westbeach_ 💙 YES, it’s a ski jacket, but I’ve been wearing this solidly for the last 2 weeks here in Cornwall because honestly, I’d our weather is way more elemental than the mountains - with constant rain, hail, and even wind gusts so strong they knock you over (anyone see the videos of me and @oliviabossert yesterday? 😂). Full review of this awesome jacket on my blog! ❄️🌨🌊 * I was gifted this for reviewing but all opinions are my own
El punto más cercano a la atmósfera no es el Everest, está a unas horas al sur de la capital del Ecuador. Aquí les dejo el majestuoso Chimborazo que crece cimentado en la ciudad de Riobamba, ni las nubes pueden tapar su porte. Grandes paisajes 😌👌🌄
Blue skies, light winds and Ruffies. Another fine day in the Alberta foothills. “Forgot” my bird vest, good thing I had @robhampton17 with me to carry all the birds. They probably got heavy around the 15 km mark #walkandasandwich#albertawildlife#lifeoutdoors
Instagram has us explaining pics with sappy captions you'd think a picture is 'not worth a million words' 😁 surely, when n how did we get here, living our lives daily like philosophers 😂? .
ION how was your weekend? Did you enjoy the show today? I did.
