As we come to a new end and beginning, I'd like to reflect and live in the memories. Three weeks ago it was still Summer and I was hiking my little feet off in Grand Teton National Park. It was indeed hazy from all the wildfires in neighboring states, but the views were still spectacular. As I neared the shore from the trail around Jackson Lake, I came to this secluded, quite spot with a grand view. I was alone, at peace with myself and my surroundings. Looking back I can hear the boat motors off in the distance and the lake softly rushing up to kiss the shore. Grand Teton is unique and every corner you turn offers something different. The mountains, the lakes, the wilderness, they're all beautiful and we shall forever cherish them.

In honor of #NationalWildernessMonth Scooby decided to check out the Jefferson Wilderness in Oregon. Ever been? Where the road ends, the wild huckleberries and blueberries begin. Oh, and scat. Lots & lots of scats. We weren't distracted at all. Promise. 🤞🏽🤞🏽

Proud new owner of an annual National Park & Federal Recreation Lands Pass! More than happy to support our Parks. Yellowstone is gorgeous and well worth the visit- despite waking up to my tent collapsing under 6 inches of snow 😂 #nationalwildernessmonth #nationalparkservice #adventuregram #yellowstone #supportourparks #optoutside #explore #travelgram #justexcitedtobehere -#grrrlarmy
Ruuuuuun! It's the weekend! Cold temperatures are heading towards the mountains. Some of you may be like me and don't have enough gear for the cold. That's when it's time to head EAST. The @theoregondesert has helped create some pretty spectacular, desolate land to tame those wild spirits. 
Who says the rugged desert can only be in the American Southwest! #NationalWildernessMonth

Live like the Mountain is out. This is  the perfect motto for how I am trying to live my life, as of lately. Amongst the chaos of earthquakes, hurricanes and wildfires out west, you never should take anything for granted. We dont always get a perfect window to climb, but we can choose to make the most of the hand we are dealt. Live every day like it will be your last - Live like the Mountain is out.

September is National Wilderness Month. On September 3, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law. This landmark bill protected millions of acres of Federal wildlands and created the National Wilderness Preservation System. 
GPO printed the original act and now makes it digitally available on govinfo: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/STATUTE-78/pdf/STATUTE-78-Pg890.pdf

A very special meeting in Seattle, Washington is happening this week between two military couples who have never met yet who understand each other completely. 
They came together because of a beauty pageant – something some might consider frivolous.  But Mrs. Washington International 2015 titleholder Tami Bailey was deadly serious when she chose an organization tackling post traumatic stress as her cause for this spring’s competition. Her husband Johnny had wrestled with the illness ever since his 2010 return from Afghanistan where his vehicle hit a roadside bomb. 
She chose Project Rebirth's Military and Veteran initiative, Project Cohort, a new effort that uses a combination of traditional and wilderness therapy to build a supportive, cohesive unit where those with PTS heal together. Brandon Lay is one of the team leads and a PTS survivor himself. He and his wife Kate told their moving story in a public interview that has been widely shared online.

What PTSD Drove a Veteran to Before he Disappeared: http://whotv.com/2015/02/02/what-ptsd-drove-a-veteran-to-before-he-disappeared/

We are very excited to see these two families come together and meet face-to-face for the first time, and are beyond grateful for their participation in our program, and courage to use their personal challenges to help others!

In honor of National Wilderness Month and Project Rebirth's collaborated Military & Veteran initiative Project Cohort, please watch this inspirational story about the healing power of nature. Cohort team member, Veteran and Outdoor Research Ambassador Joshua Brandon’s search for life after combat. This is why We #Vote for @ProjectRebirth to #UpgradeYourWorldUSA "It's like you have a little rucksack and you keep stuffing it, stuffing every encounter, every close call, every death of a friend, every one you kill, every death of a civilian. You know, you just kind of stuff that experience into a little rucksack and carry it on your back and it kind of just burns you down more and more, but at least you don't have to deal with it at the time. In the end you're just carrying around this giant rucksack." Josh says that when he was a Company Commander he took his Lieutenants up the mountain and they taught themselves how to climb and the more and more they went to the mountain they found that it was better than any kind of medication or any therapy they were getting at the time and that it really mimics everything that was good about combat.
