The All and Mighty Forester Pass was the hardest one to knock out on the JMT. I went up the snow route since I saw footsteps (thanks to whoever put them there) and didn't see that nice dirt trail, which lead to slipping a few times and cursing this mountain. Descending from the 13,153' was f'n emotional. You grow stronger with each step is what they say. #ipromisetostaywild
🌙 Happy Fall 🍁🍂 ⠀
Time for climbing temps, tea, and sweaters⠀
I can't believe I'm saying this but,,, I've been missing #boulder the last couple weeks. I know it's totally not shocking for anyone 🤦🏽♀️⠀
Everything about this 🙌🏽 This is why I love slanging kinis, thanks for letting me be a part of your journey #Repost @melissamorrin ・・・
I've been at war with my body for as long as I can remember. In entering a new decade this year, I've decided to let go of any messages, internal or external, that tell me my body is anything but ideal. My body is mine. I'm choosing to live in my body because that's what it's for. As I was gearing up to shop for bathing suits for this trip, a friend turned me on to the brilliant @luv_martha . Girlfriend is all about tearing down the inevitably negative experiences women of all shapes and sizes go through when wearing swimwear. She custom-made me this beauty of a suit. I told her about the new journey I'm embarking on with my body, and she was all about it. The final product is better than what I had envisioned. It's stunning, and I feel stunning in it. It fits my body in a way a bathing suit has never fit before, and it's reversible. Brilliant. Sending love to all the beautiful bodies out there. Let it go.
Hyped to have such badass friends to climb rocks with! @mountainsforbreakfast grabbing that thank god jam after the cruxy slab moves on the book while @bsaiiisailing belays her up. So hyped I got to lead this thing! Thanks for the good times friends!
We close out our September run of amazing craft beer casks TONIGHT, with the very special Caribbean Combine brew from Ribstone Creek!
We've paired this sucka with a slow-roasted jerk spiced pulled pork sandwich, and a limited amount of pineapple upside down cake!
If you're hungry or thirsty, you know where to be!
Where to little bus? 🌪🌪🌪 Amidst everything I own breaking, I didn't make it to Portland as I had promised.. I'm sorry to all you wonderful humans who were looking forward to bikini bus Portland pop-ups and my friends I said I'd visit. I'm still aiming to get there soon, but realistically might not make it for awhile.....:SOOO I think it's only fair to offer a sweet kini discount to you amazing Portlanders 🙌🏽 bc I do love you (( fine print: 15% off for folks with Portland or maybe nearby address... until oct 1st))
You'll be fine. You're in a phase where you'll feel unsure and lost. It's part of your path.
Don't avoid it.
See what those feelings are showing you and use it.
Take a deep breath.
You'll be ok. Even if you don't feel ok all the time.

Up on the Carnedds looking out to the Snowdon massif.
I must have met no more than 10 people on the plateau, a far cry from the crowds that flock to climb Mount Snowdon.
Can't wait to get up here this winter.
The synchronicities unfolding in my life have my heart and soul elevated to a new level. I've been in Santa Cruz for just over 24 hours and I've experienced a depth of its beauty. Happy Tuesday everyone. ✨
SLC- JFK Leaving Utah is always a bummer. A huge thank you to @running_bum_ for working with me all week! She is such an amazing spirit and an extremely talented rock painter 😬. Chasing her around Utah was truly special... even with a broken rib. I can't wait to hang out at Winter OR, Mo! THANK YOU! Now it's back to the ADKs for Osprey! Let's do this! #adventurethatislife#defendbearsears#bearsears#patagonia#dirtbaglife#vivalosfunhogs
Day 3 on SoSHR. After a very long day on day 2 we were then pummeled by a storm all night long. The high winds blew my UL tent around like tissue paper and I discovered my sleeping pad had several holes (that I could never seem to patch for the remainder of the trip). We left the Palisade Lakes tired but ready for a new day and climbed over Mather Pass and made camp at Bench Lake where we were attacked by ants all night long. Eff those ant bastards at Bench Lake. They're jerks 🚫🐜
