Flat assignment version 2.0! Mount Princeton, this time, instead of Claes Oldenburg. So glad I get a chance to take what I learned @illustrationacademy and develop it with @visualartspassage. Always fun #addiesart

She looks so happy next to the creek! #aspens #leaveschanging Also, a view of the Collegiate Mountain range from my camp site ❤😍 #collegiatepeaks #buenavistaco #salidacolorado #ischastreasurechest #blessedday
When I talk about FIGHTING for your fitness, and WORKING for your health, I'm not joking or throwing out a bunch of BS.

When I talk about how important BALANCE is in your life, I truly mean it and I LIVE the way I preach!

The photo on the left was taken on Wednesday when I did my first 14er this summer & 3rd overall. 10 miles, over 4000ft. of elevation gain! Hiking is one of my FAVE summer activities, but it can be extremely exhausting, especially when you are above 14,000 ft! I have never felt as strong and fit as I did hiking Mt. Yale, and the workout I'm doing on the right was a HUGE factor in that.

AT HOME WORKOUTS. I can press play WHENEVER I WANT without having to go ANYWHERE. I don't have to think about what I'm going to wear to the gym, who's gonna be there, what exercises I'm gonna do, what I'm going to do if it's too crowded for me to use the equipment I want.... My fit factor has SKYROCKETED from these at home workouts! We summited Mt. Yale in just over 3 hours + it felt great to be able to not have to take many breaks {I am not the strongest hiker, people usually have to wait for me 🙈} I like to hike, and I like to workout and I LOVE how working out has made me a stronger hiker. I'm hoping the strength I've gained from workouts like these will improve my snowboarding as well!!! 🗻❄️🏂 Online gym + support and motivation + easy to follow meal plans = R E S U L T S

Day 1: Mt. Princeton and Mt. Yale

Summit climbing his first 14er, Mt. Harvard. He did so good. I'm so proud of my strong, handsome Lil nugget.

I've been contemplating adventure. What does it mean to place yourself in communion with the unknown? To what level can you surrender yourself to an experience with a mysterious outcome? Do you allow yourself to feel the waves of delight and joy in the unexpected? When was the last time you set out an a journey for the sake of the discovery?#liminalspace #rockymountainwitch #adventure #unknown #collegiatepeaks #colorado #witchery.

Mt. Belford you were a worthy opponent, but alas you are now known as, #8. #Colorado #collegiatepeaks #14er
|| What Matters More? || : what people think, or what they do? It's sort of a trick question. •

Quite literally the calm before the storm. We started this gorgeous hike before 5am and walked in the dark for 2 hours, once we were well above tree line our early start was rewarded with a stunning sunrise. The weather called for a clear, windless, sunny day, but about 30 minutes after this picture the snowflakes started falling. Soon the flurries turned to heavy snow and then a full on blizzard. 40mph wind gusts forced us to take shelter crouched behind rocks multiple times. Moral of the story is: prepare for the unexpected when hiking big mountains. Luckily we had plenty of warm and wind resistant layers, but if we hadn't, the incredible hike could have quickly turned into a miserable one.

Hump day in the office, but my mind is elsewhere... Mt Yale, I think I'll pay you a visit this weekend. #daydreamin #mtyale #collegiatepeaks #coloradofourteeners #colorado #optoutside #hiking #enjoylife
A truly spectacular view of Mt Princeton, with the Surf Hotel in the foreground along with the Surf Chateau and the Arkansas River. •

New blog post (follow link in bio) about the Collegiate Peaks Trail Run 50 miler that I did back in May...little late posting it, but today I realized I just rolled over 1200 miles running for the year, thanks in part to my training block for this race. Last year I didn't hit 1200 miles until December 31! It's been a fun year so far, looking forward to training for my next race, Carlsbad Marathon, on Jan 14, 2018! #running #trailrunning #ultrarunning #ultrarunners #collegiatepeaks #buenavistacolorado #ultramarathon #mountains #altrarunning #zerolimits #ifinishedlast

Golden aspens, bluebird skies. Fall in the Rockies is my favorite. #buenavistaco #aspenridge #colorado #fall #aspens #collegiatepeaks

Camp views from Mt. Princeton this weekend 👌
Camp views from Mt. Princeton this weekend 👌
Mt. Harvard 14,420' and Mt. Columbia 14,073' solo hike. Fresh snow from last night, gusty winds and some low morning clouds made for a interesting hike. Until next year.... #collegiatepeaks #mountainclimbing #mountains #14ers #hiking #colorado #gooutside #mtharvard #mtcolumbia #mtyale #hornforkbasin
Long day, long hike, well worth the time and effort. ✅Mt Oxford
✅Mt Belford

Yesterday was a day that I will remember. So difficult yet so rewarding. The views were unreal. More then 12 hours on our feet, more then 25 miles and thousands of feet climbed. Happy Birthday to one of the toughest humans I know, glad to be on trail with you brother. @thesobey

Nate texted me a photo from the top of La Plata this morning. He soloed it in the snow early in the morning. He's such a freaking badass and I can't believe we get to be married. 
As much as I enjoy the independence of traveling solo, I really miss him! We spend basically 24/7 together since we both work from home, so being apart is really weird. It's good though, because we both realize we can do things we love on our own and don't always need the other person to do it with us. But dang I can't wait to be home and hear his adventure stories and tell him mine. Love is so fun in that way.

When you spend the better part of a week "fishing" in the most beautiful places you ever been. Life is good. #taylorpark #collegiatepeaks #gunnisonnationalforest #flyfishing #pups #taylorriver #sunrise

"It is my personal opinion that steak and eggs taste way better above 10,000 feet." We agree @mark__au_berg 🙌

Mountain pass: a tree, sky, thinner air at 12,000 feet, clouds seemingly below, views of endless peaks, and a reminder  of what beauty gives to me, and I try to give to others, so that our wellsprings  of kindness and love can be renewed. .
