Rant: I hate Black Friday. I hate how people fight over materialistic items. Most of the time items that they don’t even need. And I absolutely hate that Black Friday starts on Thanksgiving these days. I always thought Thanksgiving was a day to spend with your family and friends. To appreciate each other and whatever you have. It’s a day to share the smiles and the laughs
I’ve had so many amazing opportunities on this trip. One of which was seeing the long neck women of Thailand. This woman in particular seemed so happy. She grabbed her guitar and started singing. Hate that I have to put the black borders on the photo, but couldn’t bare to crop it.
Thankfulness: Friends and family;
I know this sounds clique but it’s true, dangit. I’m thankful for my family from afar who continually loves, encourages and supports me. Who planted seeds and let me blossom into who I am today. And i am thankful my PNW family made up of friends, adventure buddies, coworkers, and even past patients. The people who love me, encourage me, support me, and inspire me through their own storms and struggles. Those who lift me up when I’m down, who see me at my worst and yet still see the best in me. Those who cry with me, pray with me, share their stories and struggles with me and continually encourage me to keep going, no matter what. Those who see me for who I am and not my past. Thank you. Every single one of you. I wouldn’t be who I am without you. I walked out of my storm 6 years ago, into a life of adventure, hiking that hard road to the summit and letting my heavy pack down at the top. Things have come full circle and I am forever grateful for what each one of you have done to enhance my life. Much love. ❤️
7/7 | Dawn Mist Falls in @glaciernps on the Chief Mountain Alt:
The first day on the CDT was something out of a dream quite honestly. The first few steps of an incredibly long journey were past me and from there on out it only got better. I got my first taste of big, mountainous views, raging waterfalls, and endless well maintained trail.
For future reference, Glacier is in no way shape or form an accurate representation of the CDT.
I'm not sure I could have been happier that day.

"Love getting miles with Drea and Pops... It's certainly a fun way to explore our city and spend some quality family time together." - @rileypoor 📷: @poorhouselove | We have had the privilege to get to know Riley and Andrea over the years. Thankful for their friendships. Give them a follow for a raw and honest insight into their lives, relationship, and #spinalcordinjury awareness. #familyadventures#electricbike#handcycle#wheelchair#cycling
First couple days in the Philippines have been an absolute blast. Within the first 48 hours we've spent 18 of them in a tiny bus, forged a few miles through this canyon, almost got murdered by a drone (no surprisingly it wasn't mine) and got the chance to swim with whale sharks. Still hard to convince myself I'm not dreaming sometimes. Been feeling so grateful for all the opportunities I've had lately and can't thank you all enough for following along on this journey. The next 7 days are sure to be packed with more adventures so stay locked! 👊🏽

Warming up my Lambor-feeties after a long day over Bishop Pass. How many of you have had the fire claim some gear? I shortly lost my favorite pair of @darntoughvermont after this picture. RIP. DISCLAIMER: It was not the pair shown on my feet 🔥⛺️👣⛺️🔥

My favorite type of playground - one that’s white, fluffy and deep! Those prayers for early season snow surely delivered at the @therealmtbakerskiarea this past week. Prepare for my feed to get real white ❄️. Thanks for the shot and being such a fun, safe and rad partner. It’s going to be a great season! 📸: @themountainspeaks.
Waterfalls are a prime example of something that starts small and produces a larger end product. They produce so much energy in the end, even if they didn't necessarily produce a lot at the beginning of their life. Let this apply to your life, don't worry if your life starts out small, you have all of the potential in the world to produce something huge. Picture by: Sam Couch
