Spent a cloudy Sunday-funday canoeing and exploring Widgeon Falls with my beautiful little sister! I thought it would be too cold to go in so I didn’t bring my bathing suit but I was wrong. The water was pleasant and refreshing and although cloudy outside wasn’t overly cold so I decided to walk up the creek where people were not and take a dip in my sports bra and underwear 💦🌿☁️

Driving along a smokey Duffey Lake Road during blue hour last night. Can’t wait to do this drive on a clear night.

Local Bend resident Roger Nichols is still making iconic music. One of his most recognized songs was even voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 🎸 “We’ve Only Just Begun,” made famous by Richard and Karen Carpenter in 1970, owes its origins to our #MotivationMonday figure, Roger Nichols. #LiveThinkExplore

One last goat photo from the other weekend. This curious little guy followed me around the entire ridge as I took photos of the sunset. Managed to get a couple shots of him along the way.

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to work as a camp counselor for individuals with disabilities. One of our activites was to take them canoeing at trillium lake. I don't know what's better: the view or the campers' smiles.

accrues solar energy as fuel, 
makes complex sugars and food, 
creates microclimates,

"A major shoutout to these badass women, @cactusjuicekn , Jessie, @samantha.mountain.trail & @cassondra.nw who submitted Dragontail with me as an all girls team. Before my trip on 3 different occasions people were shocked that a guy wasn’t doing the climb with us and advised me to think about changing our plans. Well guess what, we don’t need a man! Dragontail Peak stands tall at 8,840 ft (highest peak in the a Enchantments)💪🏼❤️🙌🏼"

Yesterday was a tough day out on Cypress Mountain, holy shit......brutally hot, humid, dusty and smokey up there and I also  ran out of water, which is never pleasant! Think I also may have got a bit of heat stroke but seriously, check out those views of Howe Sound, it's all worth it!

I wanna give a shout out to my buddy @karlwoll and his trail website @outdoorvancouver (www.outdoorvancouver.com), before I head out anywhere, I always check the site for accurate trail descriptions and tips, a great resource! .

Last year so much of our beautiful province burned. Unfortunately this year is starting to do the same. I have a friend who lives in Hope and today you could barely see across the street there. I started out hiking to Webb last year on a beautiful day and as I climbed the smoke rolled in and I could barely see a thing. Luckily this year I did get my views although it was still a hazy trip. It makes me so sad to see the destruction these fires cause and my heart goes out to all those directly affected. As much as it might suck for me to not get views while out hiking I cannot even fathom what it must be like for those whose homes and lives are threatened by this. Please take a second to think and be responsible out there everybody!

Dream, for it’s important to have something to look forward to, but don’t forget to do the work that it takes to make those dreams come true. Have the courage to triumph over your fears, overcome the obstacles life puts in your way and move toward creating a life you could have only dreamed of. It’s gonna be hard, you’ll want to give up many times along the way, but put in that work and watch yourself rise, day by day, step by step and someday soon you’ll look back and say “I made it”

“In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks” - John Muir ———————————————————————-
On a recent hike we did in the Olympic National Forest, we came across a B-17 Bomber that had crashed in the forest in 1952. The flight had 8 individuals on board, out of which 3 died on impact. However, surprisingly enough, 5 of the crash survivors built themselves a shelter with the scraps of metal that had been scattered all around from the airplane and managed to survive until they were rescued a few days later. Such a cool experience to come across this piece of history that’s been left as reminder of the lives that our veterans have sacrificed for our freedom. 
Happy Memorial Day 💙❤️.

Send itttt 🤙🏻 ————- After tearing my ACL in 2016, it seemed like an insurmountable task to go through rehab, strength and conditioning training to regain a level of fitness that I had once enjoyed in my life. Yesterday I attempted to hike up the Big Si trail which is about 8.4 miles round trip with a 3200ft elevation gain with a 40lbs backpack and managed to set a new PR of 1hr and 12 mins to summit! 
The reason I’m choosing to share this story with all of you is because I want this to be a reminder for you to believe in yourself - know that you have the strength and power within you to overcome any obstacle or challenges life may throw your way. So believe in yourself and your ability to heal, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally too. Work hard to improve yourself and pursue your desires. Nothing good ever comes easy but also award yourself the power of faith and watch as the world around you transpires to be an agent of support. 
P.S. - idk if you can tell from my stories but I was super proud of Jodie for scrambling up to the Haystack w me which was easily about 300-350 ft of a vertical climb! .
