But the easy way is less fun...right?
.
Lately this “quitting my career to follow my passion” thing has felt heavy. I’m doing fun jobs trying to slow the drain on my savings while waiting for the next big travel plans in the spring. Inevitably doubt has crept in during this downtime. And doubt is a total jerk.
.
It’s important for me to zoom out, look at my life as a whole when this happens, and ask the question, “All things considered, is this worth it?”
.
The answer after careful thought is always yes.
.
Do not mistake this answer for a magic bullet that turns doubt into self-assured, starry-eyed bliss. It does not. Nor does it dissolve the stress I experience, but it does quiet the doubt and give me permission to move confidently forward.
.
This is not an easy way down, but more and more I believe there is no easy way. And this is perfectly as it should be.

Our friends at @hughesyourownadventure quit their jobs, packed up their belongings, and are hitting the road for the summer, both in a quest for epic outdoor exploration, and to figure out "what's next"? We want to do the same, but then who would make all your cool gear? We'll settle for meeting up with them in the Tetons. #Liveyoursomeday #Roadtrip

"It's straight magic," says Aaron of @hughesyourownadventure about the Skyon Jacket. Lightweight yet warm. Fleecy but not too fleecy. Low-profile enough to layer under a puffer, but great all on its own. Sounds like magic to us. #LiveYourSomeday #roadtrip #MarmotForLife #MaroonBells

Never underestimate the power of a 24 hour vacation. We ate good food, sat in a hot tub, found snow, snowshoed six miles in it and met Juno, the @aspensnowdog. A good time was had by all!

With the forest fire safely behind us, we turned our eyes to the high cliffs that marked our goal for this hike. Bright, sunny and dry down here - little did we know the snow and wind waiting for us later in the day!

I would like to tap out for the week, but I still have to make it through Friday.

That's not a cloud. That's smoke from a wildfire that we weren't sure wouldn't be obscuring our parking lot when we made it off Hermit's Peak. Too late to worry now though. Fingers crossed, hope for the best (it turned out just fine).

Old man winter seems to be running a little late this year. Bring on the snow... we want to go sledding ❄️

Escape to the NM in the middle of winter? Yes please. Tackling two big climbs at a much higher elevation than I live at, but sometimes you just have to gut it out. Up Hermit's Peak we go!

Tonight during @teamtrianglerockclub ‘s practice, the kids became the coaches, and the coaches joined the Team.

The Dunk brothers watched closely as I worked Coach Isaac’s flash comp. @nicksendtomorrow , @jplesserpebblewrestler , and I learned first hand that being on team really is hard work!

Suspension bridge up at the lodge. Last time we were here this was completely socked in and we walked around in the clouds. Snow and blue skies make the return trip so worth it!

Mt. Whitney - the tallest mountain in the lower 48. Standing at 14,505 ft - it’s difficult to translate the scale in a photo. I stood here and watched the sunrise paint beautiful a pastel of colors on the east side of Whitney.

This weekend had the best weather forecast in months! So, after much prodding from @chriskent42 I agreed to give snow camping a chance. I have to admit, I was more than apprehensive at the prospect of freezing/avalanches/darkness/wet clothes/solitude/etc, but I was pleasantly surprised! I never thought I'd enjoy, or even attempt, camping in the middle of December. I've become a big fan of pushing my own limits😬 📸: @chriskent42 #marmotforlife#liveyoursomeday#snowcamping#optoutside#toughsnowsports#thegreatoutdoors#weekendvibes#christmas#pnwonderland#pnw#pnwlife#herpnwlife#theoutbound#ospreypacks#wanderlust#nature#adventure#adventureculture#mountains#mountaincrushmonday#wereoutthere#naturephotography#wanderwashington#pnwexplored#nobadweather#backcountry#mtnchicks#everyonesoutdoors#welovewinter#homeiswhereyoustakeit @columbia1938

Heavy shadows being casted through the valley floor.
Heavy shadows being casted through the valley floor.
Our first seven Christmases together, the extent of our holiday decorating was a tiny, two-foot, black tinsel tree loaded with too many full-size ornaments, all spray-painted black to match.
.
Last year, with the perfect tree-framing window in the front of our house, we bought our first real tree at the local hardware store. It was only a few feet tall, but when we propped it up on a table, it looked full-size from the sidewalk.
.
This year, with national forest land just a few minutes up the road, we couldn’t resist picking up a permit to go on an adventure into the snowy forest and cut down our own tree. After an hour or so of wandering, collecting pinecones, spotting animal tracks, and measuring tree options, we finally found the one. It’s a little bare, and has a tricky notch at the base of the trunk that makes it not want to stand up straight, but we think it’s perfect.

What are your Christmas tree traditions?

Yosemite is full of some amazing beauty, but one of the most amazing things is the variables between one locations to the next. This area around Gaylor Lake is unlike most of the rest of the part we explored, but is totally stunning just like the rest of Yosemite!

I've been struggling with what to write this week as our government reduced our public lands and authorized drilling on others. It's been a devastating week for our natural world, but @xcelenergy and our amazing state are making moves in the right direction. Xcel has proposed adding the capacity to power 60K homes with renewable energy (more than all of Denver!) in the next 4 years while shutting down two coal powered plants. Follow the link in my bio to leave a comment for the Public Utilities Commission telling them we want renewable energy!

The first light bursts behind Half Dome. Imagine standing on this ledge, watching the sun - rise over the valley floor slowly illuminating the stark textures of everything surrounding you.

Hole In The Wall Campground in Mojave National Preserve provides some amazing views, with flat spots for the tent, and a peaceful air that is rare in most campgrounds. We love this camp spot.

Brush it then crush it. #climberhands
Tomorrow's forecast is rain, followed by a cold front.  So we took advantage of the sunshine today.  @courtney_climbs got her hands on real rock while we hiked.

FOUR DAYS until I'm back in the mountains I love. Not that I'm counting. #findyourhappy #hikemore
I can’t recall exactly - it was sometime before 5:00am that I left my car with my camera gear, headlamp and headed into the dunes. It was pitch black and I just followed the faint light the headlamp provided as I made my way up and down the dunes in Death Valley. I had this image in mind of the sun rising just above the dunes and I was hoping I can somehow frame myself into the photo to give a sense of scale. The whole idea sounded crazy in my head but I pursued it anyway. I set up my tripod and sat for about an hour drinking coffee and watching the sand slowly drift across the dunes as the wind picked up. As night turned slowly to day, I began to see the sun rise and I immediately ran up the dune and used a wireless remote to trigger my camera. This is the result of what originally sounded like an insane idea in my head but I’m content with the results. Cheers to more crazy adventures -

Had a blast at the LA Auto Show and it was super fun hanging out at the Subaru booth for awhile seeing their fun new cars and this little sideways fella!

Love the way the sun cast these harsh shadows along the dunes.

With the loss of my father recently, I’ve had a lot of time to think to myself and it’s quite apparent who your real friends and family are. It’s those that have continued to check in and be that person who simply listens. To those who have been there, I appreciate you. Now I understand the phrase “losing a parent is never easy.”

Walked up and down these dunes in search for solitude and that’s exactly what I found.

Did you know that allergic reaction to the cold is really a thing? It’s called cold urticaria. I’m very grateful I’ve never suffered from it because I love these polar places.

We’ve spent the last couple days exploring forest roads and did a bit of winter camping in our tent. ⛺️ #DriveLexus #sponsored
