San Lorenzo has captured my imagination and my heart. The place is raw and powerful in its wildness. But more than the mountain, with its cascading glaciers I am taken by the people here who love openly, who laugh easily, who work harder than anyone else I know, who give generously. Estancia Monte San Lorenzo and the Soto family have earned my respect and my gratitude. I have learned a lot over my years of travel and one of the most precious things I have discovered is how easily people give to those in need, without question, and without expectation that you return the favor. This week the Sotos took me in and when I asked them what I “owed them” they leveled a look of mild horror at me over the matte gourd and said, “Nothing because you’re a good person.” To say I was humbled was an understatement. I hope that at some point in my life I am able to give back and to be in a position to help others and open my home in the way people have done for me. Patagonia might have extreme weather but in my experience it has made the people warmer and kinder than almost anywhere else I know. I’m onto the next adventure but I am leaving part of myself in San Lorenzo and I have no doubt that I’ll be back.

I can’t believe how lucky I was yesterday to see a momma manatee and her two healthy babies in the bay! All that I can truly say is that nature is amazing and I want nothing more than to help save it and share these experiences with you and future generations ♥️

Not every day you get to walk up the sun and then the moon. I love the contrast between the pyramid and the mountain in the distance. #walk  #hiking  #dayhike #explore #piramides #pyramids #mexico #nature  #optoutside #forceofnature #teotihuacan #explore #landscape #mountains

I came out to my parents 2 and a half years ago. It was a blow to them. But I was hell bent on not hiding my true self just to paint a picture that’s more favourable to digest because honesty was the biggest virtue that I had imbibed from my mother and father. 
And here I am singing my heart out: a call to the forces up above and down below, a call for oneness and to leave hatred behind as we hold hands and walk towards a more inclusive and loving future. 
Seeing the look on my parents’ face as I sang on stage gave me the reassurance that I was exactly where I was supposed to be.

What your favourite thing about winter??

And a lot hiking looks like this! Mundane. Uneventful. But it’s also during these times, I have clear and distraction-free mind to think and/or reflect. Because hiking for me is as much physical grind, testing my limits as meditative and an opportunity to connect with myself. I don’t know if I had any deep thoughts on my way to #mcneilpoint via the #pct in the #mthood wilderness area but I did appreciate walking in the shade. .

- BE IN THE MOMENT -

Who was inspired by my previous northern lights post? -
-
-
Photographing the #northernlights on this particular evening was one of the coldest of my time in Norway. It was difficult not to be in the moment when the cold is biting your fingers & nose.
-
-
-
Going through traumatic experiences in life made me continually "on guard". I was constantly on alert, worried someone would do something bad again. Especially on dark nights, in a new and foreign location, where I subsequently felt a little vulnerable. -
-
-
On this evening, we had drank all of our own tea & a group from @hamnisenja was leaving to head back for the night, so we were given some of their tea. A random act of kindness from unknown people on a dark & cold night. Travel & experiences like these have gradually increased my trust in people, especially when im vunerable. Subsequently I'm less "on guard" & consequently have less #anxiety

Yoga on the beach for the calm before the storm 🙌 Constantly amazed by the beauty of nature.

While in Utah, Jason and I were walking along a path having a conversation when I looked up and saw mountains aglow! I’m pretty sure I walked away from him in mid-sentence and headed straight towards them. He just stopped and stood there as I walked farther away. As I came down a hill and turned a corner there was a little pond and more glowing mountains. I stopped and took a breath. There have been many writers who have tried to articulate the feeling that occurs when you see something like this, but no words can accurately capture it. Not everyone has this feeling, and even fewer “get it” when it’s haphazardly explained... but those of us that do... we look over at one another and we smile, because we know, without words, what the other is feeling with just one glance.

They completely challenge us. They break us down. They remind us how delicate and short life is. We seek comfort and answers in them, we are made to reflect. They force us to focus and pick ourselves back up. They take our breath away over and over. They allow us to grow and love and live and play. We don’t conquer them, they conquer us. 
They are everything, these mountains. Forever will we celebrate them. •

Today on @localtableth @takemetour_thailand our local expert took us off the beaten path of Chiang Mai to a province called Lampang. We visited Tham Phatai National Park, which is completely untouched by tourism and a true hidden gem of northern Thailand. Pictured here is the Emerald Pool: a natural sunken pond with water so clear and blue you can see the fish swimming from the peak up above. A short hike down leads you to this dreamy and whimsical wonder of nature. Swipe for more emerald waters 🇹🇭 #AmazingThailand #OpentotheNewShades #TakeMeTour #ChaingMai #Lampang #sponsored

🌊The sea cures all ailments of man 🌊Plato 
I started teaching yoga at the beach six years ago. There is a special kind of magic practising yoga on the beach, watching the ocean move with such power and change, with the delicious sensation of sunlight tickling the skin. I find that practising outdoors has the power to elevate the simple yoga poses into a transcendent dance, transforming the movement into a full-body prayer. And there is a hugely freeing, ecstatic sensation when we synchronise with Mother Nature.

About 70% of the earth surface is covered with water. Even human bodies are made up of about 55-60% water. Indeed, we do belong to the ocean.
Personally I visit the beach every day, and it always leaves me feeling alive and cleansed – physically, emotionally and spiritually. The combination of sun, sea and sand is the most natural and easily accessible form of therapy available to mankind.
To feel the sand at my feet, to listen to the soothing sounds of the waves. Ocean brings me a mental shift, teaching me about calmness, depth, harmony and open-mindedness.
Several research has proven the fact that the sea helps us restore our physical, mental and emotional well-being. That sea water strengthens the body against viruses, low defences and bacteria. 
Sea air is charged with healthy negative ions that builds our body’s capacity to absorb more oxygen. Even walking barefoot on sand neutralises the impact of free radicals in our body as sand contains minerals required by humans.
Never miss a chance to go to the beach, and this Saturday the chance comes in a form of “Sunrise Yike at Mullaloo beach” 
Hope to see you there 🙏

Run for 20 minutes and you’ll feel better. Run another 20 and you might tire. Add on 3 hours and you’ll hurt, but keep going and you’ll see—and hear and smell and taste—the world with a vividness that will make your former life pale.

I'm always fond of big trees. They have the strength, endurance, and patience to withstand ever-changing environment and stand strong.

tran·scend
/tran(t)ˈsend/
verb; to go beyond the range or limits of; go beyond, rise above, cut across 
#tbt This is a year of sheer transcendence.  I have completed 3 half marathons. Last year, I would’ve never guessed it. I’ve gone beyond what I thought were my limits(and so can you!). But I trained my mind to believe it was possible.....Ex: Saturday I ran a 5k(slow due to Achilles issues) in rainy 40 degree weather....Sunday I ran a half marathon and it was 36 degrees (felt like 26 and My Achilles was 😒) BUT I still  finished two minutes faster than last time(woot,woot). Albeit, I still have not reached my goal 😒. Even with great pacers/friends.... But i’m ok bc I continue to see improvements as a result of my efforts. Failing forward, right? Forward towards success... Annnnnd I’m ok bc my friends and family are still proud❤️. Kalani ALWAYS reassures me that I will win the next race🤣. I think Courtney is under the same impression❤️! So thankful for the LOVE and support. Always beyond grateful. All praises to God. Photos with my ❤️’s who are in this journey too.

Notes from a dark room:

Whatever you may be going through, tell yourself this: nothing is a waste. Believe it with all your heart and in whatever way feels right, commit to making it so -- someday, even if it isn't right now. Even if you don't know how, yet. You don't need to know. You just need to trust and declare. Our word creates our world.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you are right.

During the winter season I usually slow down quite a bit and pursue some of my other hobbies like cooking, baking, reading, and watching movies. I’ve got plans to do a lot of cooking tomorrow on my day off and I’m looking forward to it so much 🤗

Last weekend I got out for a chilly, snowy hike in the Gorge and it was beautiful! It was also my first time up close to the effects of the Eagle Creek Fire. It was sad, yet beautiful! The charred trees with the snow was breathtaking!

Throwin' it back to when I actually climbed 🙄 Does anyone else feel like December hit and everything exploded? My mom was in town, Nick's grandma passed away, unexpected trip to Utah for the funeral (which ended up being very lovely), I've had two colds and two UTI's 😫 Today was going to be the first full day out climbing in probably a month and I couldn't wait, and then, UTI. Ugh!
.
Not long ago I preferred to stay inside and chill, Nick was always wanting to get out and my first inclination was always no. This wasn't really the person I wanted to be, but years of conditioning prevented me from getting out of my comfort zone. It was probably 2013 when I decided that every time Nick asked if I wanted to go do something I would say yes, don't think, just say yes. This led to so many wonderful outdoor memories and now I am always wanting to be in nature! I NEED to get outside and away for at least one full day every week, I am a better person because of it. Excited to feel better, get outside and get back to my climbing projects. Laying low until then (and sorry if I'm a bit grumpy til then 😉)

When you brag the night before about how badass you are for coming prepared for wind and rain.

Only to wake up the next morning to the gods reminding you that you are mere mortals, unfit to live as the gods do.

Shout out to the Rocky Mountain gods yesterday for allowing us just the right amount of “fair” weather to be able to get to this moment in time 🙌.

I'm bored and restless and tired of the same sights. But there's no one I'd rather experience that with than you, bud. 💙

Slot Canyoning with 2 dogs and 12 Boy Scouts ✅ check that off as a special ”experience” 😂
I don’t normally share these photos and I don’t know why? What better way to depict a slot canyon traffic jam? 🙌🏻😂

My little mamas girl ❤️. I love watching you grow, seeing the strong little girl you’re becoming, trying to keep up with your sister but still attached to my side.  I promise I’ll stay by your side, hold your hands and help you climb as long as you need it 
Also I’m just obsessed with these amazing photos @klutzy_climber took from this fun afternoon a few months ago ❤️ I’ll share some more this week!
