Such a gooood Friday! Got up early and headed to the mountains to run 15 miles with @rheabothe @sawna #theadventuresofjuniper and #lolarunstrails , got @vinhloitofu for lunch, then went rock climbing at @boulderdashclimbing! Now it’s movie time, if we can stay awake for one...
“The Empress is surrounded by a beautiful, lush forest with a stream running through it, demonstrating the Empress’s deep emotional connection with Mother Earth and life. She draws her sense of peace from the trees and the water and is rejuvenated by the energy of nature.” One of my favorite images by @kactusphoto from last summer
I’m trying to figure out how I’ll make some money this year, but all I’ve managed to do is get some more maps and replace my mountain bike shoes. 📓
Who wants to go on a winter backpacking trip with me?
Also y’all @purplelizardmaps are the best maps I’ve ever had my hands on. They have all the layers of info I want, and none that I don’t. 👌
Also the #bajadivide is so tough on gear- but my @fiveten_official sneaks made it to the end!
Also I am a professional adult with 15 years of technical writing experience so holler if you need some documentation. I’m available!
Therapy comes in all different forms. For me, hiking and trail running is one of them. Headphones in, music loud, heart pounding, and pushing myself until all else falls away and it’s just me getting lost in rhythm of my shoes on the trail. 🙌🏻🌄 #switchbackchics
When a researcher and a journalist go on a hike together /// tarantulas live for 15-20 years, and pemmican is any mix of fat and protein, often made as survival food by First Nations ppl /// also fuck the guy who (incorrectly) mansplained petroglyphs to us. We're smarter than you dude. #adventurebabes#smartgirls
Acknowledging the senses ~ the first steps to connecting to the present moment. What is it that you feel? The ground beneath you, balancing in your hiking boots on the rocks, the sun warming your skin. What do you see? A vast open land ahead and below, flat tops wilderness. What do you smell? Fresh air, organic material surrounding you. What do you hear? The wind whirling around your head thousands of feet up. What do you taste? Your dry mouth, the salty sweat above your up lip, dirt. There. You are here.
I encourage you to try this exercise ~ recognize your five senses // In this present moment, what do you hear, taste, see, smell, and see?
