Decided to add some line work to my sketchbook watercolor of the changing aspens from last week. Now these aspens are all covered in snow, which makes all my hikes last week so much sweeter. Let's hope the sun comes out and melts it all - I still need to go biking some more! And we need it to melt and be warmer for Saturday's Creative Meetup.

Along with summer, I'm gonna miss afternoon climbing with the hostel gang. Shared dinners, late night trips to McDonald's for Skor  McFlurries, and all the lake days.

This new season brings along a lot of newness in my life but I'm looking forward to finding a new community of friends wherever I end up next.

This morning I was reminded by FB of my trip to SW CO when winter came crashing into fall. I missed all the snow this weekend but excited with anticipation for my weekend coming up and my final trip until Christmas break... oh how I love this area so much words cannot describe my love. .

Overcoming obstacles is just part of the sport for ultra-runners. #ForceOfNature Mirna Valerio overcomes mud, heat, pain and the negative voices that say she doesn't belong. Watch the full video now (link in bio). Thanks so much to @themirnavator for sharing her story.

The Grand Tetons did not disappoint on our last day. It was hidden for three days prior when finally, the sun came out to play! This shot from Jackson Lake makes it seem like there’s a volcano spewing steam from the summit. Stay tuned for more!

I also love how it can have this effect on anyone - all you need is a camera and the will to let your lens push you further afield. This photo was taken in Valhalla Provincial Park (BC). It's a spot photography took me to this summer and I'll be forever grateful for that. I mean-look how stunning it is!!"

#Explorerchicks are climbing chicks! 📷:@_katiejohnstone
Sometimes things don't go as planned, or what you had planned clearly isn't the way, and you just have to sit back and pray for answers, for strength, or patience...in the case of climbing it's usually strength, but the head game of imagining something from the ground to actual application never disappoints. Gotta love the problem solving skills, particularly when back cleaning after Ben. ♥️

Stepped way out of my comfort zone and lead an entire multipitch route by placing my own gear. I even built my own anchor with gear for the last pitch. I still prefer sport climbing with pre-placed bolts to clip into for protection,  but I fully support the idea of "leave little trace" with trad climbing. Plus, how about this view the whole way up? Happy to have checked off a classic #Yosemite route!

#motivationmonday goes to these three incredibly strong, kind, beautiful women who I'm so honored to call my friends. We started the #sixpackofpeaks challenge together, so it only seemed fitting that we finish it together. It was definitely a physical and mental challenge for us all, but together, we conquered the highest mountain in socal. I am forever grateful for these awesome trail partners and for all of the laughter, stories, and jokes we share (#doratheexplorer) 😉 and for the bonds we've formed over our love of nature and the outdoors. 💕💜 @courtadventures @phry_m @cristylu11 💜💕

These two SUP mermaids met for the first time yesterday in my SUP Yoga class, and yet, they immediately connected.  More often than not, students come as strangers and leave as friends. 🤙

Cultivate meaningful connections.  Establishing bonds with others creates a healthy community and increases our happiness.  This is how we live Aloha. 🌸 Join the @lyfsup ohana for SUP Yoga classes on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am through October! •

#stayingwildandfree | This was only my 2nd time backpacking. I learned a lot. I especially learned that even when you watch weight, the ounces still pile on.
-
I am injured (IT band/hip tear), and gradually getting better with Physical Therapy. Yes, I was injured during this trip. It’s really hard for me to be patient and not join in a hike or activity. My injuries are only painful during activity, so it is easy to forget they need time to heal.
-
So I am finally taking it easy. In the meantime I will enjoy sharing these, and contemplating my 3rd trip.

"One day when you wake up, you will find that you have become a forest. You have grown roots and found strength in them that no one thought you had. You have become stronger and more beautiful, full of life giving qualities. You have learned to take all the negativity around you and turn it into oxygen for easy breathing. A host of wild creatures live inside you and you call them stories. A variety of beautiful birds rest inside your mind and you call them memories. You have become an incredible self-sustaining thing of epic proportions. And you should be so proud of yourself, of how far you have come from the seeds of who you used to be.” - @nikita_gill

👀 my gallery for the full 📸 of this doozy of an 8 miler, 2370 AEG in the Superstition Mountains. Peralta->Robbers Roost -> Cave Trail -> Bluff Springs. Plenty of no trail, route finding, cairns seeking (the useful kind, not "rock art"!), boulder scrambling, butt scootching, jaw dropping goodness. Feels good getting my legs back after a summer of creek and lake strolls to escape the heat.

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." -Jack Kerouac

With a busy schedule, I haven't given myself the time to go & explore, as I usually do. As this month ends I'm challenging myself to do better, to get back outside, to the places that make me mad and desirous. •

Hey friends! The Indiegogo for our documentary "Abandoned" only has a few weeks left and we are still pretty far from goal. If you want to see this documentary come to life, we need your support. Not to mention there are some pretty cool perks you can choose from by becoming a backer. You can learn more by going to the link in my bio. Thank you everyone who has already supported, I am so grateful! #theroadwesttraveled  #abandonedfilm

Dark Horse over Torres. My time lapse captures are all special to me, so picking out a favorite feels wrong, but damn if this isn't the most amazing night sky I've ever witnessed in my life. The stars were this bright. It was beautiful, magical, life altering - all the adjectives and more. I feel blessed to have been able to witness it, capture it, and now to share it. I watched it in person, and now have viewed it dozens of times, frame by frame, and I see something new in every instance. The first few times you watch, I encourage you to follow the Dark Horse across the sky. Try to convince me it isn't galloping (backwards!). I dare you. #archives

You can't pour into others unless your own cup is full. Waking up early to have some ME time was the biggest game changer in my life. Personally, I prefer morning walks with a mountain backdrop and my little dude by my side. But your morning can look however you want it to. Read, stretch, meditate... do anything you have to do to clear your mind and fill your soul. 🙏🏼❤️☕️

Sometimes misadventures are the best adventures. Stumbling on this little charmer would have never happened if that storm didn't move in on our summit.

That sure is one heck of a classroom that @nat_burch12 has. These outdoorswomen from Clarkson University get to spend a whole semester immersed in the Adirondacks learning about sustainability, history, and so much more.
We’ll take that over sitting in lecture halls any day.

Speaking of the Adirondacks, only two more weeks until COLS weekend! Be sure to get your tickets through the link in our bio and prepare yourself for a weekend of leadership training, radical trips, and new friends 🔥🎉🏕

There is this misconception that you have to travel super far to find adventure. Some of my best adventures have been in my own backyard. Remember, the secret to having everything is believing that you already do! #co13ers #sheexplores #colorado #mountaingirls #coalitionsnow #forceofnature #exploresummit
Happy Monday Trail Mother Community! ☀️⛰
.
. Today we have a very special Mother Move Mountains feature! I was browsing through and saw Rochelle, her beautiful Family , and her Blogging Inspiration ☀️ I just had to Feature this Mama! . . .
Here is her story: I'm a casual hiker. I've always loved hiking and really fell in love with it when I hiked half dome in my 20s and it become a more regular outing for me and our family when we were living in Scottsdale, AZ. I wanted my children to fall in love with the desert landscape and outdoors in general so I started them on short easy trails. I started blogging about a year ago for a local mom's blog and wrote one post per month. Currently I'm working on my own blog: Homemade Handfuls,  but I'm not interested in posting pictures of my kiddos and I don't know if I can swing a full time blog. I wanted it to be a blog about simple homemade crafts, recipes and adventures our family has and a place for me to just write and connect with other mamas with similar challenges and passions. I really enjoyed being a part of Blog with contributing writers and that's what I'm hoping to find again-We moved, so I wrote my last post for the local mom's blog last month

7,000 ft gain up. Seriously one of the toughest hikes I've done locally. It's an up and down climb until the last 2,000 ft push in the last mile. Then you think you're done, but the most challenging part is descending 😂 Challenging and rewarding, for sure.

Running away from the crowds at Silver Falls! 😝 With the 50K coming up in November, Mack and I decided to check out the (very difficult to navigate without cones and trail markers) course this weekend. Thank you @gaiagps for keeping us from getting lost! Turns out there are some pretty sweet (and isolated!!!) singletrack trails outside of the obnoxiously busy waterfall trails. Getting stoked for our last race of the year! #icantbelieveistillhavetoenails 📷: @mackrobertson

As someone who doesn't purchase unnecessary items often, whether it be because I don't truly need it, I have something that's similar, or I realize there are more practical ways to spend my money, it was nice to splurge a little on things I've had my eye on for months (some years.) #cheersto26 🎉🎁

We are revving up to decide where our next retreat should be.  Tell us where you'd like to go in the comments! #daretodetour #wheretonext #adventureawaits
Day 1: It's 27 miles til the next reliable water source, welcome to the AZT!
⠀⠀
12 hours of travel to the trail - out of bed at 4:30am, then on to the Redmond airport, a flight to Salt Lake City, a flight to St George, and then a 2.5-hour wait for a pre-booked shuttle that just... forgot to come get me, followed by a 2.5-hour ride to the middle of nowhere aka the Northern Terminus of the Arizona Trail. Hiked out right away, made it 7 miles before dark, quickly set up camp in the roaring wind, did a v bad job pitching my tent, ate two @pickybars for dinner, bundled up for the forecasted 35-degree overnight low and tried to mentally prepare myself to hike 20 miles to Highway 89A and then hitchhike (!) 3 miles to Jacob Lake to fill my water bottles tomorrow. But really I just can't believe I'm here and that this hike has finally begun and eek I'm cold and it's so windy and I'm all alone and coyotes are howling nearby and omg why are these my life choices again?? 🙄 But hey, at least I didn't cry today! Except okay I did cry a little while saying goodbye to my cats but that doesn't even count because who could possibly stare into such perfect tiny cat faces and try to walk away for 6+ weeks without crying?! Only a total monster could do that. And yes I will be digging holes for my poop from now on but I am not that kind of monster! ⠀⠀

Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let's not be afraid to receive each day's surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity. -- Henri Nouwen

[#OvertheWeekend]

Went on a 7-mile hike Saturday with mah girls. Got mad steps in, took in the fresh air, and saw some amazing views! Afterwards, we visited the vineyard at the base of the mountain for our pre-packed lunch and some vino. Today, I'll be using that wild woman feeling for my #mondaymotivation! Have a great week, friends!

Descending into a canyon is a different kind of humbing than scaling a mountain. With each step, the walls rose and it was a brute reminder of how insignificant I was in comparison to nature.
