spent the last few days climbing rocks, eating sushi, laughing and celebrating @brookbriana’s birthday. it’s been a really sweet and deeply fulfilling couple of days. this morning I was listening to a spheal by @justinbaldoni, he was talking about a moment where he recognized the fragility of life and the gift that was spending time with people. I got to thinking about how much time I’ve spent with the same people the last few days and how lucky I am to be given that. time is our only nonrenewable resource. money comes and goes. energy comes and goes. but time? time is fleeting, it’s here and now and then it’s gone. for you to be given time by the people around you is an gift, to get to share in peoples triumphs and pains is a honor. my hope for you today is that you recognize the brilliance of the humans around you and that you find gratitude for each moment you have, be it laughs or tears.
A good adventure partner is so much more than someone you run around the mountains with.
You wake up in the middle of the night to cross rivers & steams, log endless miles and vertical feet in the dark. You often times find yourselves in situations that are so uncomfortable and painful that all you can do it laugh. And although the suffering is an unavoidable part of so many big adventures, there’s also the softer side.
There’s the hours of conversation to and from your destination. Pouring your heart, dreams, and life out on the long slogs over trails. There’s the hours of planning, plotting, researching, wandering through the dark, that sometimes end in finding yourselves at the top of the most beautiful mountain, just as the sun breaks free from the horizon. Looking around at the towering granite, realizing that this makes you feel alive, solidifies your friendship and kinship in every way.
This is @marisajarae navigating the mountains, and dreaming and scheming all the wonder since our very first 2am meeting. Thanks for being such a friend and lil’ crusher in so many ways 💪🏻 .

@shreddysarah // “I choose mountains because they were my first love. They taught me how to deeply appreciate and respect nature, and opened a door to a whole new world of beauty and exploration. Whether it’s on foot, bike, or skis- solo or with adventure buddies- the possibilities and good times are endless.
I have learned some of the most important life lessons up high, and it is up there where I feel I most belong. Mountains bring me peace and soothe my soul, unlike anything else would ever be able to. Like they say, the best things in life are free. “//

This morning I listened to a podcast about vulnerability. We have all endured heartbreak in a way, that gut wrenching pain that you feel will never go away. Your initial reaction would normally be lock your heart up with a key, keep it safe, but when you do that, you’re closing off everything that allows beautiful relationships to form. The kind of relationships that your soul needs and is yearning for. So instead of letting heartbreak break you, allow it to be something you overcome and become better from. And when you feel like you are starting to close up, don’t allow it, opening up is where the real magic is ❤️ .
🌿Oils for overcoming fear of vulnerability: Rose, geranium, arborvitae, cypress, cinnamon. Apply chosen oils on your heart space. If you have questions about which oils are best for you, send me a DM.
Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going...no matter if you feel like it or not. 💗 Once you start getting used to the kind of energy working on yourself brings you, you’ll never want to go back. Invest in yourself instead of other things like waking up ⏰and checking out social media for 20 minutes for example. I used to spend 20-30 minutes of my morning looking at Facebook just to wake up. I’ll never get that time back. You will love ❤️how you feel when your time is spent on more important things, like you! ✨ Happy Monday Friends!

Back at work today, and the only thing I’m going to miss more than these views is spending every waking moment with my dog 🤷🏽♀️
Canadian national parks are GREAT for adventuring with your pup. Nearly every trail is dog-friendly, whereas in US national parks pets are almost universally banned from backcountry trails.
BUT! The added responsibility of hiking with your pup in the Canadian Rockies is not to be taken lightly. Here are a few tips/precautions I took:
- Carry extra tasty, protein/calorie dense treats. Your dog needs fuel too! Topo loves these beef sausage treats made by Backcountry (so on-brand, it kills me). It’s basically jerky for dogs.
- Keep an eye out for water source quality along the trail. When we were higher in elevation and a bit more isolated, I let Topo drink straight from streams. Where it was a bit more crowded and there was a higher chance of something funky being in the water, drinking straight from the source was a no-go. Which brings me to...
- Carry a small collapsible bowl and extra water for your dog! Don’t forget to offer water regularly, especially if your pup appears to be slowing down.
- Bring extra poop bags! Either pack out your dog’s 💩 or give it the #LNT treatment — bury it in a hole at least 6 inches deep, well away from the trail (this is harder to do unless you’re *really* in tune with when your dog is gonna go. We mostly just packed everything out.)
- Bring a small first aid kit for your dog! We brought our usual human kit, with the addition of “My Dog Nose It” (nose sunscreen, lol), tweezers (for ticks), and a paw salve made by the same folks who make Joshua Tree climber’s salve.
- It is SUPER important out here to keep your dog leashed on-trail. I love off-leash adventures as much as the next gal, but there is so much wildlife (black and grizzly bears, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, etc) out here that leashing your pup keeps everyone safer. We didn’t let Topo bark at wildlife, and we stayed very aware of when another animal (usually deer or sheep) “locked on” to him and we needed to quickly move along.
- Lasty HAVE FUN! I’m so happy I could share this experience with a critter I love *so* much. 😭💞 #hikingwithdogs
Things I can’t get enough of: forest bridges & wooden walkways, WW2 novels, vinyl records, COFFEE, turquoise river water, baby goat cuddles, sunflowers, and those dang cheesy potato grillers at @tacobell - what’s on your list?
