GILGIT BALTISTAN DIARIES: Rakaposhi View Point Nagar Travelling to Hunza was one of the most #exhilarating and #unforgettable experiences of my life. Sleepless nights and constant travelling added to the #excitement of seeing unknown and challenged places. I have always loved gigantic #mountains , #waterfalls , fast flowing #rivers and #glaciers . Who doesn't? This particular picture shows the waterfall in #NagarValley , almost five minute walk from where we were supposed to stay but didn't ( because of unhygienic conditions). The cool #breeze had a calming effect on us. The water coming down the mountains felt so magical. Snow peaked Rakaposhi could be seen in the distance. A lot of tourists, not only from inside the country, but all around the world, come to view this; the first ray of the sun on this snow capped mountain pêak creating a #mesmerizing effect!
"The Wisdom of the River" is in all of us. Always moving forward to where it is destined. Curves and currents flowing like ribbons through the earth . Liquid life... rushing , pulsing like our blood and nourishing and cleansing like our breath. Creating a sacred circle of renewal and restoration. Not knowing time because it is always in the present eternal space on earth.. Guiding and gliding, molding it's way through earths clay, through mountain and valley into the oceans cool embrace.

Had a Blast In Homer with @travelthrufitness it was great to catch up after all these years! Such a beautiful place overall down there. Thank you again for the hospitality and taking us fishing. No doubt that I’ll be back to make more memories 🙌🏼
We’ve been hitting the water a lot in the past few weeks, rolling out the inflatable paddleboard for sessions on lakes and rivers. As we only have one paddleboard, we take turns, which may mean leapfrogging shuttles on river sections. 😂
It’s been awesome to explore landscapes from a different perspective, see a different set of passionate outdoors people, and learn about water management practices.
Yesterday we floated 45 miles on the North Fork of the Flathead River, starting at the Canadian border, and surfing through a variety of Class II rapids along the way! Lots to learn. 🏄♀️ 🏄 🌊 .
Bacteria results are in! Drum Point on Wye Island passed, but the #MRYC on the Miles River failed. We advise that you avoid water contact if high bacteria levels are found, especially with an open wound. Be sure to shower after swimming! Have a fun, safe weekend on the river! #swimmableshorerivers
