Prost! 🍻 Also, I really am that pale, but being next to my Costa Rican bestie doesn't help my cause. I did NOT get the olive skin tone from my Italian ancestors like my sister & cousin did. 😂 | My closest friends may be in different states, but talking to them always warms my heart. It's amazing how when you really love & cherish people long distance and life in general won't stop you from staying close and communicating when you can. Miss these girls so much and I am so grateful for the years of friendship, love & a ridiculous amount of laughter. | Here's us the last time us 3 amigos were all together. This restraunt is SO good. Has amazing German bier & delicious food! It's the perfect place to gather, enjoy great company & make memories filled with laughter. 💗 | 📍Hessen Haus, Des Moines, IA 🌾

Happy International Mountain Day and Travel Trip Tuesday 🏞️ P.S. All the cool people wear life jackets.. errrkay. | The mountains are my favorite place! There's nothing quite as beautiful to the eye as those majestic peaks, evergreens, and pure wilderness surrounding me. | Travel Tip this week is to try new things when traveling! It's the perfect time to experience different foods, sports, cultures, histories, the and activities. This was my first time canoeing (properly). I canoed in college with friends, but usually I was in front doing all the work and my best friend Jill was in back relaxing. 😑😂. This was so much fun - even when a sudden storm came between those peaks and we had to race back to the dock! Just made it more of an adventure. 😋🏞️ | 📍 Lake Louise, Banff National Park, AB, Canada. 🏞️

Happy Human Rights Day! | For those who don't know me really well may not know that while attending Iowa I received a Certificate in Human Rights. Throughout my journey in college human rights became a focal point through my years there, specializing mostly in  the the Horn of Africa region, FGM, child soldiers, lack of education for girls, refugees, genocide, & crimes against atheists. I was Secretary for the U of Iowa UNA & then went on to become a Human Rights Intern for the Iowa United Nations Association. Did you know that there are 9 countries where being an atheist is punishable by death & being homosexual is punishable by death in 7 countries still? Did you know that in 7 U.S. states it is currently illegal for atheists to hold any form of public office (which is in direct conflict with the Constitution) & polls indicate atheists are the least trusted group in the U.S. - on the same level as rapists? Did you know that around the world more than 200 Million women & girls living today have been subjected to FGM - most times without anesthesia or sterile tools? Did you know that there are 17 million girls who never got the chance to attend school - even primary or that there are thousands of child soldiers? A lot of people are unaware of the he human rights atrocities going on all around the world. It's hard to get outside our bubble - even when we do have the time we don't want to think about such disturbing or depressing things, but remember there are people living w/ these circumstances every day.  Perhaps in 2019 make a new goal of learning something new once a month about a what is going on elsewhere in the world? While I love travel & dream of food, human rights will always be my #1 passion! |📍 Schaeffer Hall (aka my second home in college), Iowa City, IA 🖤🌽

Bison Herd  in Yellowstone 🐂 | It was so fun to watch the calves frolick and play in the valley of Yellowstone.😍 I look forward to seeking them out more in the Midwest along with Wolves and Bears in 2019. It's amazing what you can actually find by traveling locally once you actually put in the research! Most of us are missing what's right in our own backyards - myself included. I'm a big proponent of traveling locally and I intend to focus on it more in the years to come! It's perfect for everyone, especially those who don't have the finances or time to travel far & long term! It is amazing when you realize just how little you've actually explored the places closest to you. | 📍  Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA🌲

The Everglades offer visitors a chance to see some of the most beautiful birds and reptiles in the world, perhaps a chance to see one of many endangered species, and even an opportunity to see some (not welcome) invasive one's! 🐊🐍 | This bird is so beautiful. I am in love with the pink, blue and purple birds I saw there. (and the pelicans!) I didn't think this was a  Blue Heron. It seemed far too deep a blue, but I can't figure out what this birdie is, so I'm guessing it is a Blue Heron.

I was up until 1:00 AM last night thinking about Wolf 926F, the life she lived and the way she was taken from this world. I will never forget her. She was the first large predator I saw from a decent distance. I was lucky enough to watch her gorge on an elk carcass all day - a once in a lifetime experience even for many professional wildlife phtograhers & Rangers . There is no benefit to trophy hunting other than for the hunter who gets praised by other trophy hunters. The trophy hunting around Yellowstone seems especially malicious and wolves seem to receive extra attention by hunters. In all these instances, the wolves never did anything wrong. It's only humans who have failed them. This female  no doubt was seeked out by hunters because she was well beloved by Park visitors & because she was the daughter to The Most Famous Wolf in the World. ( Her mother was a badass wolf who also died by a trophy hunter.) 926F encountered many challenges in life, even being outted by her own daughter from her pack, but this year she seemed to be making a come back. She had given birth to pups this summer and a new pack began. Let's hope her mate and new pups can make it through the rest of hunting season & winter. In the mean time we should reflect on BS trophy hunting & ways we can ban wolf hunting in the area like we did for the grizzly bear (again) this year. 🐺 ❤️🐻 There is an estimated 700 grizzlies in the Greater Yellowstone area and 104 Wolves / 11 Packs. Both of these predators are an essential part of the Yellowstone ecosystem. 🐾 | 📍  Near Warm Creek Picnic Area, Yellowstone National Park, Montana, USA🌲

Travel Tip Tuesday: Don't Forget to Laugh. When things get hard, don't go as planned or we make fools of ourselves laughing can make all the difference on how the rest of the day can go. | I've embarrassed myself and encountered problems when traveling. I've had a guy dressed as Mickey Mouse rip off his costume head in Time Square, so he could yell at me! (The poor kids who saw Mickey rip his head off in one of the most popular & visited areas of the world.. Opps.😱.) The spot pictured here is where I ate shit on trail. There was only about a 20 foot area that was super slippery from the ice on the rocks and I managed to fall... in front of about 10 other hikers coming in the opposite direction. None of them helped me up or asked if I was okay. They just starred at me like I was an idiot. All I could do was laugh. I thought it was hilarious. I made it up and down the mountain without incident and then when I'm on the flat part I eat shit. Wiped completely out and fell on my ass. I would've preferred they laugh with me instead of stare at me like I was a newbie (and I was, but so what! Even the best fall!) I had my trusty hiking shoes on. I was being careful, not running, watching where I was going, making small well placed steps... But I still fell right on my caboose and I found it hilarious even if the others didn't. If I cared about what they thought, how they didn't help me,, or why they were so grouchy about it, it could've ruined my day. But I didn't let it. I laughed in the moment and I've looked back on it since - every time laughing. So don't let other's attitude or small pitfalls ruin your day when traveling. Laugh about it. | 📍 Big Beehive Trail, Banff National Park, AB, Canada 🐻🏞️🌲
