There’s a degree of soul, heart, mind, and even body space that goes along with noticing. It takes space to see beyond our lives and ourselves so we can cultivate the habit of attention. And when we’re able to pay attention, we can see. It’s a cycle, I suppose, as many things are. 🍃⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Distracted living feels easy but its price is high. 🍃⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It doesn’t take much to open up a little space, just a little time, just purposefully pausing to use time rather than kill it. Five minutes for a walk around the block without the distraction of the phone, a pause on a bench during the errand run, a walk through the park while waiting to pick the kiddos up.
🍃⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m reminding myself here because I need to hear it. Maybe you do, too. How can you pause to open up a little space today? Me? I think I’ll take a walk. 🍃

Day 99 // 21.0 // 1261.9
The morning hiking felt great! Smashed 12.5 miles before lunch. Then the afternoon dragged. My leg was sore and hiking was a hassle. So many times I just wanted to sit down and pout about still having miles to go... but instead I kept walking! Didn’t make it any less painful, but I made it to the shelter.

🎧PODCAST🎙Happy Friday you incredible people! A new Adirondack-based podcast episode is available at the link in my BIO! ⛰
“Morale was the lowest once we finished the steeper side of the front side coming down Colden. We hit the pretty much flat portion and had five miles left at that trail junction. I sat down for a second and I got rid of one of my layers and Ryan’s like ‘we should probably take our headlamps out now’. We were looking at five or six miles in the dark. Oh boy.” – Roger Laistner
⛰
“I was definitely thinking about daylight waning away and it was definitely in my mind in terms of setting the pace that I was going at. I really wanted to see how far I could get. I got going real fast on the rocks and at that point it was just like sort of a process of just skipping from rock to rock and keeping momentum forward and letting the trail just guide me wherever it wanted me to go.” – Wil Nagengast
⛰
In this episode, I have a great conversation about the Adirondack High Peaks and our most recent adventure with friends and adventurers Roger Laistner and Wil Nagengast. I met Roger and Wil in college and we began going on Adirondack adventures shortly thereafter. The weekend of Saturday, October 13th, 2018 was another Adirondack weekend where we were planning to hike Mount Colden via Avalanche Lake. We had a large group of 9 hikers and the three of us split off to try and do Mount Marshall in addition to Colden. We were unsuccessful. This is the story of a hike that could have ended a lot worse than it actually did.
⛰
We talk about:
1. Our late 10AM start on an October weekend and how that affected our hike of Mount Colden.
2. The challenges and upside of hiking with a large group.
3. The importance of doing research prior to a hike and communicating a clear and logical plan.
4. The issue of overpopulation in the Adirondacks and what we experienced on peak foliage weekend in the High Peaks Region.

Mount Temple is a stunning iconic mountain in Banff National Park located in the Canadian Rockies. It overlooks the Lake Louise.  This is one of the best hikes that I ever had. All in one recipe the scrambling, the ascent and descent it will challenge you. bucket list cross out.

‘Getting lost was not a matter of geography so much as identity, a passionate desire, even an urgent need, to become no one and anyone, to shake off the shackles that remind you who you are, who others think you are.’

I will always seek out the Outdoors and live a life of Adventure. A life of always keeping the end in mind and tuning out the noise. Today was by far the chilliest day but I knew the reward would be worth it. I get an extra adrenaline rush in my veins when outside. This park is referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the East” and it did not disappoint.

The most beautiful view comes after the hardest climb. (Especially when that view also includes being able to get a latte)

I was blessed to get to spend some time on the trail this morning. Man, y’all, being out there sets me right. I left heart-full of joy and gratitude. In my life, everything isn’t perfect, but the God I serve and love is perfect. I am full of joy not because of an absence of struggles, but because of the presence of people I adore and cherish that help me navigate them. When I simply stop and lift my eyes to look around once in awhile, it never fails to amaze me the way creation reveals the Creator. .

Not all adventures have to be long trips to far away places.  My mom and I recently spent the weekend camping at #cliffsoftheneusestatepark - it's barely 1.5 hours from our house... we left Saturday morning and came home Sunday evening.  We hiked.  We paddle boarded.  We campfired (always). It was simple, refreshing, and just enough to feel like we "got away." .⠀

I freaking love banana slugs. Usually people I talk to think they're gross or annoying pests to watch out for on trails, but I think they're adorable. I almost always stop to watch when I see one (I haven't come by them as often as I used to). I can't be the only one, right?!

Finally did the Indian Point hike out in the Gorge. It's one of the few that have reopened on the Oregon side following the Eagle Creek fire last year. Most of the area was affected by the burn, but it was beautiful nonetheless. Felt good to do a steep one again!

When you’ve got fresh air and freedom to roam, you’ve got it all. We can confirm that Grampians National Park - where both are in abundance and vistas like this are the norm - is a 10/10.
