Check out that hairpin turn! It also happens to be the exact moment Sawyer tossed his cookies in the car. We discovered on this trip just how prone to motion sickness he really is. Everyday there is an hour drive up this mountain full of twists and turns and switchbacks just to reach trail heads and every day Sawyer does the technicolor yawn. I feel terribly about this but at least he feels better as soon as he gets out of the car 😬🤢🤮 #mountainview#mountainvibes#sequoianationalpark#roadtrippin
When I’m not hiking I’m making videos of hiking. 😂 A wee compilation of a couple of my 2018 adventures. Most of the time I am hiking solo and honestly don’t take any pictures or videos so this certainly isn’t all of them nor all my favourite hikes.
WHAT IS YOUR MUST TRY HIKE FOR ME?? (In the Kananaskis, Banff, Canmore area) I’ll be in the mountains soon and need to make a list I’ll need to conquer 🏔

I’ve recently let the old demons back in.
3.5 years ago I was in a bad place. It looked like I was in a good place from the outside-moved across the country, finishing school, in a relationship. Inside though, I was depressed and anxious, I was 30 pounds overweight, I had no self confidence and I didn’t really have many friends.
When I found myself on a health journey, a lot of that changed. My mental health was in an upswing, I was dropping the pounds and gaining confidence, and I was meeting new friends who were supportive and uplifting.
I gained the confidence to realize I wanted more out of life than a 9-5 job with a mediocre salary, and I started my side hustle with intention to make it my full time career.
Fast forward to the past few months. I got comfortable and lazy in my own health journey which led me down a destructive path of old habits and old feelings. My business isn’t where I’d like it to be. The anxiety is back full force along with the depression. In my business, I’m comparing myself to others, I’ve lost belief in myself and I started to feel like I wasn’t good enough.
Today I’m drawing my line in the sand.
Today I’m saying NO to the negative committee in my head.
Today I am choosing to treat my body like the temple that it is.
Today I am taking back control.
We all go through hard times and fall into ruts in life. It’s your choice how long you stay there. No one can get you out of a rut but you. You reading this, you deserve happiness, health, and success. YOU are the only one who can bring those into your life 🙏🏼
My instagram has been broken for a few days and then I was travelling to Newfoundland so I'm a little behind on sneak peeks! We were lucky there was no video while we were doing photos on this log... I had poor Michael holding an incline crunch forever while Chi leaned back into him! In video you cold see him shake... but not in the photos! One more advantage of photos! 😆
Hiked all the way up only to see the clouds rolling in. In this case the journey was definitely more fun than the destination. On top of one of the hills around the Kazbegi mountain on the Georgia/Russia border there is a cool monastery to hike up to. Obviously I went up there for the views, I have seen tons of churches on my travels around the world. So I was a bit annoyed by the weather conditions. Anyway I don’t want sound like a spoiled traveler now, but I can’t hide the truth either! As long as its an adventure Im a happy man! #stayreal#travelblogger#teamoneill
