A few pics from my short run before picking up the kid from school today.
I know I've said it before and I'll probably say it again, but, I am so thankful I get live and play in an amazingly beautiful place.
I hope you all got a chance to smile and be thankful for something today.
Just a casual Tuesday walk through the park. 😱🤯😍
Andrew + I laughed because this is the Hooker Valley Track aka a walk that takes 3 hours total. If this were in the states it would have been deemed a hike (lazy Americans 🙄), even though there’s not much elevation change and the whole thing is on gravel. If this is a “walk” in New Zealand.... can we just imagine the actual HIKES. I’m NOT READY. 🙌🏻😜
P.S. I never post more than 2 posts per day.... but New Zealand might make me break that rule for you guys.
Comment below... do you wanna see more? 🙋🏼♀️📷 Also comment below how far your jaw dropped when you saw this? ⛰😍 Mine hit the floor the whole hike... I mean walk. 😉 #RomanAroundNewZealand

What tangled webs we weave, or so they say.
If "they" could peer into their own consciousness, they would see that we are all interwoven in the end. Synapses, nerves, and restless waves in a constant stream of motion. Even as we lie down with the sun, our mind strains to find itself amongst the threads. We are always working toward the center, toward meaning, toward you, toward me. Toward each other in the vast array of lights flickering in the night.
We wax and wane and waver as stars and moons and galaxies tend to do, and the reflection of them is a memory of us.
Have you ever considered the mapping of the human brain? Neurologists and astrophysicists marvel at the endless expanse. We cannot tell what mysteries they hold, even as technology synchronizes with our insatiable curiosity. The obsession to explore.
The desire and subsequent fear of knowing.
If you look closely, the mind's tapestry eerily mirrors our Milky Way. Or any cluster of planets that broaden into infinity.
The ancients have also suggested that as it is above, so it is below. It may not be bullshit, after all, even though their doctrines and dogmas and childish gods have missed the point. One could say that they cannot see the galaxy through the stars.
We cannot see the forest through the trees.
We cannot see humanity through our petty, primitive divisions.
Before I become distracted by other thoughts, by other threads that tie you and me and them together like all of the best, truest, most timeless stories, just know that we are more than what they say. We are more than bank accounts and violence and market values. We are more than religions and beliefs and subjective standards of worth. We are more than gods and kings and CEOs and the politicians who placate them with their mindless drivel.
Look out beyond your apartment and desperation and city haze, look out beyond the trees and hills and cluttered, despairing masses colliding with their cluttered, distracted concerns....**Continued in comment section⬇️**
Like father like daughter? Heck yes. // He says he’s slowed down but I think thats a lie. He’s still out there crushing sh*t and I’m so envious. Hope to be like that when I reach his age\\ Thanks for fuelling my fire 🔥
Also @baffinworldwide thank you for the amazing boots! I’ve been so pleased with them so far and my feet have been beyond happy. Can’t wait to keep testing them out. #BaffinWithUs
Even when everything goes wrong it's important to keep a good mentality. I'm also amazed at the level of solidarity that exists outdoors. A lot of things went wrong on this day and a trip that had everything going right was suddenly going wrong.
From an unexpected monsoon, to getting stuck in mud, to being trapped because of a flash flood we experienced a roller coaster of emotions. However, we kept our cool and to our luck we met two nice guys who went out of their way to guide us through another back road, driving close behind in case we ran out of gas so we wouldn't have to struggle hiking that distance on our own.

Summer memory number two: this was our last night on the Colorado Trail. Bella’s shirt was more than a fashion statement...it was what I used to keep biting flies off of her without overheating her. It’s the same shirt I hiked in every day!
Fall is gone and I’m pretty sad about it. The few weeks we did get though were stunning! On to the next season in Colorado although I’m going to relive my perfect September every chance I get 😊 📷 @taradactyl02
Would you have guessed that half us met for the first time that morning?
I love the slack family!
Just a buncha kooks🤪

Caught this gorgeous sunrise moment on the June Lake Loop a week or two ago. I’m posting this from San Francisco Airport, awaiting my flight back to England, my home country. Can’t wait to visit family, friends, and childhood haunts that I haven’t seen for years. It’ll be a nice little break from the Eastern Sierra, not that I’m tired of it or anything! #fallcolors#junelakeloop#easternsierra#choosemountains#natgeotravel#sunrise
Yesterday’s plans to visit Joshua Tree were ruined by road closures due to recent flooding... so instead I rerouted for a spontaneous wilderness adventure through San Jacinto State Park via the aerial tram—just in time for some sunset hiking. 🤤 Just because things don’t go as you planned doesn’t mean things can’t still turn out great. Didn’t think I’d be in the mountains again anytime soon now that I’m back on the road, so I am a pretty flippin’ happy camper. 🌲
Parting with this piece I made many moons ago to free up some space in the casa. 30”x40”.

DM me if you’re interested. .
Based off a photo someone gave me of a friend in the Baker backcountry, before split-boarding was really a thing, and boot packing was all the rage.
Dan Sandberg if you’re out there listening, this beaut is calling your name.
Fall in Colorado happens so quick, but it is my absolute favorite time to hike and camp in the mountains! I was sad to see snow when I returned home from Florida and that the trees have already lost their color 😩
Where are you from? Do you get to experience and explore the fall colors and the crisp air?
Into Grampians National Park we go! Well known for its striking sandstone mountains, the natural beauty and accessible location of the Grampians (260kms from Melbourne) makes it hard to resist. We’ll happily descend on the abundance of hiking and climbing trails here any day!
