“Without Harris there would be no Group of Seven. He provided the stimulus; it was he who encouraged us to always take the bolder course, to find new trails.” -A.Y Jackson #neysprovincialpark#picisland paddleon#gitchigumi #lakesuperior#discoverontario#wildernessculture#explore#algomacountry#adventureculture#thecanadiancollective#sunset#optoutside#northernontario#explorethebackcountry#explorecanada#ontarioprovincialparks#groupofseven#hikingadventures
Story of my life ⏳ Literally, I always have ten million projects going on. Right now it’s: redoing my kitchen, a rad project with @gitchiadventuregoods, keeping up with this account and @inkypleaser, setting up a screen printing work area in my “dining room”, collab’ing with my sister, @kayla_christophe on some fun cards and prints (coming soon), posting on @dribbble for the first time soon, also hoping I’ll get back into @tissuesfor___ soon(!!!!). Lots of things to keep me busy 😳🙃

Spending the week away, along the shores of the big lake they call #gitchigumi #lakesuperior #camping #rockhound #idoloveit
These weekends away remind me that life can be whatever you make it. There were other people at this beach. There were other people picking berries. There were other people almost everywhere we went (gratefully, not quite). But no one else had the same weekend we did. No one else took the same dirt roads for the same reasons; our path and purpose was our own. That thought is even more refreshing than this afternoon post and pre hike swim.
Thanks for the photo @ryzielovessnow 🌊

If I believed in supernatural spirits, I would believe I was visited by one along the shore of Lake Superior last week. Sorry this is so long, but it's a true story, and written exactly as I remember it happening. Take it as you will.✌🏼
.
After taking a few photos in the morning light along the shore, I made coffee and sipped it as I stood in the shallow water on a rocky point. It was a calm morning, with miniature swells rising and falling only an inch or two at my shins. I decided to sit, so I walked out of the water along a low rock ledge to what looked like a perfect place to sit with my feet in the water as I finished my coffee.
.
But when I sat, I found that the waves didn't quite reach my feet, and my feet were on dry rock, not quite reaching the waves. After pondering the situation for a minute or two, watching the tiny waves stop just short of my feet, I sighed. "What a metaphor for my life," I actually thought to myself. "Even when I think I've found the perfect place, the conditions are never quite right to realize my goals."
.
A moment passed after I had the thought. Then the next wave came in a little higher, onto the dry part of the rock, and just over the tops of my feet. And so did the next one. And the next one. And every next one after that.
.
I smiled at the coincidence. Sometimes good energy from the universe shows up just when you need it. I reached into my pocket for the blue marble that reminds me that water is life. I put the marble in a shallow depression in the rock at my feet where the waves could wash over it. The very next wave came in noticeably stronger, though not much higher. As it washed back toward the lake, it rolled the marble out of its resting place, toward deeper water. *continued in comments*

Stepped away from the homestead today for a girls’ day trip to one of my favorite cities — Marquette.
.
I wish you could lean into this frame with me and hear the waves and the gulls and feel the beach stones warm beneath our feet. The entire unscheduled day was a giant exhale after a very busy, noisy July.
.
We are midway through summer and I am feeling the need for less action and running, and more beach days, kayaking, garden veggie picnics on the checkered tablecloth, evening fishing on the riverbank and night walks by bouncing flashlight beam.
.
There’s a whole lot of summer left, friends. What are your hopes?

As I was sitting here enjoying this view a song was stuck in my head, Bloom by Paper Kites. I feel the connection to the lake is pretty strong. As I was waiting for the right conditions to take the shot I enjoyed watching the wind sweep across the lake forming small ripples on the surface. It's pretty amazing how a song can take you back to that very moment. #optoutside #exploremn #ellingsonisland #splitrockstatepark #naturephotography #rsa_landscape #minnesota_captures #sunrise #sunkissed #onlyinmn #capturemn #northshoremn #lakeshoremag #greatlakes #lakesuperior #greatlakesloving #mnhorizon #mnlakelife #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily #moodyskies #induropushfurther #nikonusa #gitchigumi #findyourpark #irix #roamtheplanet #destinationduluth #neverstopexploring

This picture does no justice. So blessed to growup/live in such a beautiful place. I never understood why so many people come to the middle of no where, but now I do💙 #Gitchigumi #home

Had a great time trucking around Grand Marais! We went for a hike and capped off the night with dinner at the Angry Trout Cafe where we had fresh herring and whitefish.  #freshfish #herring #gitchigumi

Moody. My thoughts on a Pacific Beach when my chest is tight with the desire to skip rocks, wave ride in fresh water, and battle the wind on the North Shore. Grateful for this cloudy panorama from a sandy cliff that makes me think of Lake Superior before a summer thunder shower. The rollers aren’t quite so pounding though. And the smell of weed baffles my UP Michigan memories

Not a bad place to spend my 34th birthday...explored the backcountry lakes by canoe, caught a few trout, hiked some beautiful trails, ended the trip at Rock Island Lodge on Lake Superior and enjoyed some gourmet meals in Wawa!  Here’s hoping this spectacular day is a harbinger of many good things to come during this next trip around the 🌞. Now on to New York City this Friday for a completely different adventure!!

Gitchi Goomy just whispered the news to me:

Today is the Five-Year Anniversary of Hella Damn Squirrels!! So after you call your dad and wish him happy Father's Day, come down to Lake Merritt and bring some walnuts for the most celebrated squirrels in Oakland!

Summer is nice but winter is cool 😎🌊 🏄. Maybe I’m not normal but I need the challenge of big Nor’easter ripping down the lake to make me feel alive. Who else embraces harsh conditions to get the blood pumping!? #noreaster #gitchigumi #thebiglake #surfsup #coldwatersurf #minnesota
Drifting in time, like a wandering impulse,
the feather glides on the breeze of her breath..until caught, as are we, by the muse of her beach.

We spent the day in the sand; watching my little nishiime and the little one growing inside laugh and smile made for a beautiful day 🌅🌲.

I'm so thankful I was able to spend a few days at home in the Yoop before heading out to Colorado! Although I'm heading into a new, exciting adventure, my heart aches for the big lake, the back roads, and morning coffee with my mom. 💕☕🌊
