How about I spread a little sunshine! ☀️

F A L L I N G 🍂 This autumn has been extraordinary. I cannot believe there’s still leaves on the trees and no snow on the ground but I’ll take it! Are you still enjoying fall or has winter arrived where you live? 🍁 ❄️ Have a fab weekend, lovers. 💛

This is one of the blessings of being on the trails, you get to meet these kind of pretty little wildlife.

This is a great time to drop this photo, because I'm back here today showing my friends this awesome spot!

What's the most impressive spot you've seen in Australia so far? This has to be one of mine, Mermaid inlet, near Currarong. .

Best feeling ever, when it’s just you and the open road. 🛣

Living with anxiety is like being followed by a voice. It knows all your insecurities and uses them against you. It gets to the point it’s the loudest voice in the room. The only one you can hear. That’s why I turn to the mountains. So much solitude and silence there. I can actually think and feel free. #choosemountains #choosemountainswomen .

Tonight was a no gps tracker, walk when Ranger wants to walk, turn when he turns, sprint when he sprints, stop and catch my breath when he stops to sniff something kind of night.

A moody day on Little Si! Even though we didn’t get to see the views, the fog in the trees was really neat. I got to meet a new hiking buddy today from one of the many hiking groups I follow. And Kona the mini Australian Shepherd was a great little hiker!

There are so many things on your plate right now,
And a whole lot of things left to figure out,
But if ever for a moment you feel like you cannot continue,
Take a deep breath, reflect, and remember just how far you’ve come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨little reminder for anyone who needs this today. You can do it, whatever it may be 💕

I've never understood how people can go into mountains and be anything but awed. To me they're this return to childhood; I just want to know what is out there. It's like this great roiling wave of curiosity and excitement. Then learning via thru hiking the PCT that I can walk between these incredible places! I can hardly describe that feeling of just knowing "yeah I could just walk over there if I had like, 18 hours." What's the word for feeling enormously powerful and utterly miniscule at the same time?

“A little nature therapy” is so true. When we’re feeling down, it’s amazing how much of a difference getting outside can make. Fresh air, sunshine, and the great outdoors. Some of the best therapy there is!

That said, I need to mention that I had nothing on my hands when I took this picture. I don't want to encourage anyone to attract birds with food! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
▶️ Never ever feed the wildlife! ⠀

It's bad for them for many many reasons, and it’s also part of the Leave No Trace principles.

Currently planning a ski roadtrip for this winter and have the epic pass. Looking for suggestions on which resorts to hit or avoid in Colorado and Utah?? 🤷‍♀️🌨️🏔️

I'm going to miss these moody days at our favorite local park. Mostly because soon everything will be covered in snow.

Whos ready for the backcountry skiing?

A certain treasured beauty lies in this season alone, in the longer nights, and colder temperatures the winter is finding it's footing here in the Pacific Northwest. This season calls my soul and chilled fingers to the warmth of shelter. In this 'Winter's Dream' painting I wanted to capture the perfect balance of wild and cozy, two things that speak so boldly to most of us. This place amongst the pines on the lake, soft powder on the mountain, a cozy fire and glowing windows showing the blessing of home and shelter. ❤️ Ps. I am loving these @american_easel watermedia panels, they are amazing. I've already started on my second panel. 😊

Summer state of mind.

Reflecting back over the past few months, I am conflicted with mixed feelings. I should be grateful for all of the adventures we have gone on, and yet I long for just a little more time to fit in a few more. I know there is always next year and winter is filled with its own glory, albeit less predictable explorations. Still I always feel a little sadness knowing that our weekend getaways into the woods will become less frequent. #summerjam #flashbackfriday #takemeoutside #cascadiaexplored

33 years. According to my death clock, that is all I have on this planet. The number is shockingly intimate, far too small for my wandering mind to accept. I have so many horizons to chase, passes to climb, ocean depths yet to dive. How can I already be halfway through this journey and still feel like I have only just begun?

I had such a late start, I want to argue! I did not know the things that I so love until only recently. I ignored the whispers of my heart for far too long. How can there be so little time left?

But time does not give a shit about my late start. It simply marches on, every day leaving me a little bit older than the last. What will I do with this one wild and precious life, as Mary Oliver so eloquently asks?

What I will not do, what I cannot do, is wallow in grief for what has not been. Forward is the only direction worth moving in, and that is where I will go. Chasing this outdoor life with every ounce of passion and enthusiasm in me, until the day arrives that I can do no more. That day may been 33 years out, or it may be tomorrow. This is the real truth, isn’t it? There are no guarantees. 
So get out there. Make the plan to do the thing that sets your soul on fire. Because time is going to keep on marching, and one day you might wake up and realize that you have been sleeping for far too long. Wake up now and live.

Lewis River, Middle Falls. Long run adventure day.

I'm home from the PCT (and back in the PNW drizzle), having finished at the southern terminus on November 1st & then doing a bit of traveling along the west coast. So what's next? Well that's a good question. Right now, I'm catching up with my friends & fam, and working on editing my trail journals (there's a new one up at ArtemisHikes.com or click the link in my bio to check it out). I'm also planning (at least) 2 thru-hikes for 2019. More on that later, as I still need to go over logistics & get my gear in check. This means lots of training hikes coming up. 
Stay tuned folks, and happy trails♡

Your wedding ceremony is about you, and the most important thing is that it’s held where you want it to be held. That said, there is a right way to plan a photogenic ceremony. Ceremony photos can look very different depending on the direction of light and orientation of your group. For outdoor weddings, consider the time of day of your ceremony to avoid harsh overhead sunlight, distracting backgrounds, and spotty shading. I’d love to help you choose a location and orientation to ensure you get the best possible lighting and photos during your ceremony!

Despite everything going on in my life today has been a pretty good day so far. Actually I haven’t felt this good in a while. I finally decided to wake up an hour earlier to get a workout done before work. It’s crazy how much a morning workout can set up your whole day

I will never forget but I’m trying to heal. It’s along road ahead but small steps every day. Happy Friday ✨ .

HAPPY FRIDAY! I have a fun day planned with my girls. Remember to make time for your girlfriends! It doesn’t matter if it’s been months or years, reconnecting with them is just like you never missed a beat with each other.

I have been feeling really down because of a careless accident I had on my road bike earlier this week that’s forced me to take a break from training for my first Ironman 70.3. It impacts my training plans and it’s not where I want to be 3 weeks out from race day.😔
.
.
A friend told me to “find my internal 🔥” to push me through this setback and remain positive about the race. Mentally crushed, I responded, “The internal fire is there, but the body isn’t😩!” Then he responded with something that really stuck with me: “Your body isn’t meant to run a 50K. It’s your mind that allows you to push those limits.” 🤯
.
.
Endurance races like ultramarathons or triathlons really are more mental than physical. You could be at peak fitness, but if your mind and heart aren’t there, you won’t bring yourself to that finish line. I find his advice so powerful, and I hope sharing it with you helps you find the mental strength you need when you’re feeling down. 🙏🏼

💡Never underestimate the power of the mind 🧠

It’s Friday and I’m SO ready to put this weird week behind me!!! Best way to do that is to drown out my feelings in the mountains! 😂 I know that sounds like a dramatic joke, but I honestly think the outdoors are healing because they not only remind you how small you are — but how relevantly smaller your problems or worries are. So I’m doing just that! If we get lucky we might even get a side of sunrise with our mountain mimosas....😍🥂Make sure to follow along on our morning adventure in my stories! Who else is getting outside and taking advantage of the PNW sun this weekend?! 🌞

That Friday feeling! Who’s ready to adventure somewhere this weekend? 💕🏔

Take a breath, quiet your mind, enjoy the silence. 
One of the perks of solo adventuring: sometimes, you get the summit all to yourself.

Looking forward to this weekend! We’re getting to that time of year where spare time on the weekend, or during the week for that matter, is scarce. It’s the time of year when I have to dig deep and remind myself that this period of busy won’t last forever. Attending the first of many holiday parties on Sunday, so with that, let the games begin!

Rediscovering my love of climbing! After I moved to Spokane 5 years ago from Bellevue, I went back to the flat/ short courses because there’s not a ton to train on (unless you can mentally handle reps like I can’t 😂). Now I’m in  mountain land and rethinking what I want to do in 2019. I think it’s time to get back to sky races and train for my 1st hundo... I say it’s about time, yeah?? ✊🤩
