AWE. ๐Ÿ“

I am in AWE in the most truest form whenever I find myself in these surroundings. This emotion is rare. I have my parents to thank for raising me to enjoy the great outdoors at such a young age. And for teaching me how to adapt with less and find comfort in the unconventional. 
During our monthly camping trips, the streams & lakes became my go-to playground, the trees became my shelters, the mountains my home away from home. At the age of 8, I earned my own mini-me size tent and with that, I felt like I was the king of the world. I kid you not, I would seek out rabbits & deer as my royal family and bugged my Mom to make me a leaf crown to pair with my regal wooden hiking stick (#sorrynotsorry #extra). Everything was new and continuously awesome. I remember asking myself, how do I make this last? As I grew up, my brain naturally adapted to routines. I've learned to throw it off by switching things up, traveling more, getting out of my comfort zone, or trying something wild, just to revitalize it again. Fortunately, whenever I return to an area in nature, regardless if it's my 2nd, 3rd, or 54th time at that exact location, I ALWAYS feel like it's my very first time. My brain is awakened repeatedly, and it takes me back to when I was a kid, full of joy, discovery, and unrestricted emotion.

This is me in my mid-30s, exuberant in childlike wonder and feeling like that 8-year old kid all over again. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป #philupadventures ๐Ÿ“ธ: @gandid.camera

I waited 2 years to reunite with this place, and on November 30th, 2017, I made my way back down and left with a hiking mileage of 30 miles, a new squad, and a new perspective. This particular trip reinvigorated, empowered, and re-inspired. It took a lot of us to another level. Would I return again, and do the full experience of hiking in and out with my pack? Absolutely. Would I return as soon as next year? Most likely not. Personally, #Havasupai is something I needed to digest over time. It is unlike any other and I realized that it's too special of a place for me to do all over again right away, without allowing my recent experience to fully sink in. I want to savor, and let the abundance of new stories replay in my mind for a while. Replay the faces that joined in on this unforgettable journey, pushing each other to conquer our obstacles, fears, and doubts. After my second helping, I've realized that my appreciation for the magic and the soul of this place has been amplified ten-fold. If you plan to go for your first time, feel free to message me and I'll share my personal tips on how to prepare a safe, respectful, and fulfilling journey to Havasupai. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ *Check our trip's visual story, now featured on my bio's highlights* #philupadventures #philipislosttour2017

Our world is colossal, but our time in it is so limited. Stimulate those senses with newness, accumulate stories & laughs, and share these experiences with your loved ones often. When you find other souls that you can laugh with as much as laugh at, you know they're for keeps. Grateful for these hooligans. ๐Ÿž #ourlosttribe ๐Ÿ“ธ:@christopherkhoitran

TRICK OR TREAT ๐ŸŽƒ During yesterdayโ€™s golden hour, I introduced a solid group to this abandoned beauty for a pre-Halloween 5-mile adventure. The last time I hiked to this place was in 2015, during a hot summer day. It was refreshing to return here in different lighting, in brisk temperatures, and in a different season. We ended up staying here until the sun disappeared and trekked back through the mountains in complete darkness, which was undoubtedly the best way to end this experience.

"When you own your breath, nobody can steal your peace." ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Thank you to my dear friend @mannygarcialife for returning all the way from Chicago to lead us in a powerful morning yoga flow, breath work, and meditation session during our 3rd annual Lost Camp. Last year, we experienced such a moving yoga session right on the shores of Yosemite's Tenaya Lake I had to bring that fusion of nature & yoga back. This year, I'm grateful we had the Sequoia National Forest trees surround us in our own private grove. They say that your soul is attracted to people the same way flowers are attracted to the sun. Let us continuously choose to surround ourselves only with those who want to see  us grow. ๐Ÿ• #OURLOSTCAMP ๐Ÿ“ธ: @cliff_wang

โ€œFood is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.โ€ ~Alan Wolfelt ๐Ÿฝ I absolutely LOVE anything that has to do with food and preparing meals because of how it brings people together. After spending time in the outdoors, I've learned that my own kitchen therapy can definitely be experienced and applied outside. For our cabin trip's dinner, I wanted to celebrate our first night with a hungry man's meal so I cooked up a vodka-sauce pasta topped with an assortment of baked grated cheeses and added a side of sliced polka kielbasa with grilled seasoned tomatoes. Easy, hearty, and after a long first day, was ultimately rewarding. I used a cast-iron skillet and our cabin's awesome outdoor fire pit set up, and soon enough, we were devouring our food and sharing some incredible stories together around the fire. What are some of your favorite meals you enjoy making during your adventures? ๐Ÿ˜‹#CabinOfManS1 ๐Ÿ“ธ:@cliff_wang

Nothing compares to the rustic peace of a secluded cabin deep in the woods. We were about 6,000 feet high in the mountains and had 40 acres to ourselves with no neighbors in sight. Just the soundtrack of the creek that led to natural swimming holes in our backyard, with the occasional whispers from the trees and singing from the birds. There was a sense of isolation but never the feeling of loneliness here. Instant soul gratification. ๐ŸŒฒ#CabinOfManS1 ๐Ÿ“ธ:@christopherkhoitran

Adventure and the travel bug bite runs in the family blood and it's nice to say that she has officially joined our other adventurous sister Katrina in the airline industry. Kudos to you for surviving a rigorous training program and lately, for making some tough adult choices but wise life decisions and overcoming minor obstacles. I commend you for not taking on anyone's bullshit and for absorbing them with grace & class, as you always do. You are always so humble, considerate, and never one to shine the spotlight on yourself. So today, I celebrate you not only for your recent accomplishment, but for being a person we can all learn from and be inspired by. 
I'm happy to know you've found a great temporary home away from home and that everything is working out on your end the way it was meant to work out. CONGRATS on your next big adventure through the friendly skies! People who fly with you and Katrina should be so lucky. 
And to the frequent fliers out there - a reminder to be kind and thankful to your cabin crew, pilots, ticket and gate agents! We really have no idea what they go through to make sure we all have a wonderful & safe flight experience. โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ ๐Ÿ“ธ:@cliff_wang #oregonwiththewind2017 ๐Ÿ’ฅ

I read somewhere that adventure gives us the context for growth, but it won't force you to grow. Couldn't agree more. So where are we growing next? ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ

A special throwback in honor of Canada's 150th birthday ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‰ I will never forget my first experience here in 2015. As my California squad touched down in Calgary, Alberta on New Year's Eve, we had no idea what kind of adventure was waiting for us. My Canadian friends picked us up and immediately thrust us into the wilderness via a 9 mile star-lit night trek up Moose Mountain, located in the Kananaskis Country area of the Canadian Rockies. Fighting off single-digit winter temperatures, we pushed our bodies through snow-covered backcountry trails (where The Reverent was filmed!) which concluded in a short but intense rock scramble to the top (gotta love lifesaving micro spikes๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ). It was worth the work & heart palpitations because we ended up popping champagne bottles inside this gigantic, magical ice cave to celebrate the arrival of 2016. And it was only our first day. Ever since then, I've fallen in love harder each time I've returned. Canada - so much love to you and all the wonderful Canadian friends I've met. I'll see you again soon, eh? ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ #canada150

Adventure is always out there, waiting for you with open arms. Still on a high from last weekend's magic in the desert. California - you have so much to offer us in the name of adventure. Thanks to my super talented buddy @cliff_wang for this cosmic shot! If you like what you see, please go check out his work for more delicious eye candy ๐ŸŒโœจ๐ŸŒŒ #philupadventures

Great times during this past weekend's road trip through the desert wilderness with some wild folks. Off-roading, gun shooting, BLM camping, bouldering sessions, bow & arrow target practice, and sleeping (mostly naked) underneath the Milky Way galaxy made for an action packed 24 hour adventure. I love a good road trip and some camp vibes. But camping in the desert during this season isn't for the weak. Besides dealing with the wrath of the sun, you're going to meet all sorts of wild animals so just be extra careful of where you decide to pee...๐Ÿ #philupadventures #ourlosttribe

Who else out there enjoys some good old fashioned cabin vibes? When I walked up to this beautiful ranger station in Washington's Olympic National Park earlier this year, it immediately made me crave for some cabin fever. Super stoked to be disconnecting in the middle of the Sierra Nevada mountains with the boys in our very own remote rustic home next month! ๐ŸŒฒ#philupadventures

One of many things I appreciated about Tulum, Mexico were all of the motivational & inspirational signs scattered around town. They are everywhere - and some you have to look a bit closer to discover. I wish we had this imagine the amount of positive energy and motivation we could gain from the simplicity of these signs. After our 10 mile biking adventure & trek through the Tulum Ruins, we rewarded ourselves with ice cream & a well-deserved recharge on the beach to the natural soundtrack of the Caribbean Sea. ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ#philupadventures

"Going to Chicago was like going out of the world." ~Muddy Waters. Not every adventure I find is in the great outdoors. A big city such as this can provide unexpected opportunities. @chicago - it was nice to see you again. Thanks for letting me roam aimlessly through your diverse neighborhoods, sample your extraordinary foods, get lost in your subway system, and soak in your beautiful city's culture. You've got a soul and an energy unlike any other. After 3 days with you, I'm leaving with a reminder of why I fell in love with you 4 years ago. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™#philupadventures #philipislosttour2017

LOOK PAST THE OBVIOUS | Because a special place like Tulum does something to you. It is much more than just pretty beaches to photograph. The outcome may not be the same for every person that comes here, but after speaking to friends who have also visited, we've all had impactful experiences. I came here with no expectations and after 4 days of living life in the slow lane, I left feeling more centered. I didn't realize the things this place did to me were things my spirit needed at the moment. After exploring with no set itinerary, taking time for reflection & meditation, and engaging with the various communities here, I leave feeling with a bit more calm & clarity in areas of doubt & uncertainty. I feel more breathing room, focus, and lastly, more emphasis on the importance of time. Being here has a way of grounding you, as I've been gently reminded that I'm a constant work in progress and that it's never up to anyone else but yourself, to create the life you feel is worth living. So much love & gratitude to my dear friends @__juli.ette, @capnshoot, and to the beautiful people & land of Tulum, Mexico for this experience. Mi alma esta llena. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐Ÿ’š

HAPPY BDAY shout out to one of my tribe brothers - the amazing @alexcalish. This was photographed by our friend @atelier.calimbas during our camping trip 10,000 feet high in Saddlebag Lake last September. Alex and I connected through Instagram and our first meeting was an intense backpacking adventure through the Sierra Nevada Mountains to Big Pine Lakes, in which we separated but found each other the next morning during a snow storm. Ever since 2015, we've experienced some unforgettable adventures together (including Havasupai, Yosemite, and most recently, Oregon). Be sure to check out both Alex & Jeff's incredible visual work on their accounts. Can't wait to celebrate you tonight bud! ๐Ÿป#wildernessavengers #philupadventures #tribe #strangerthings #ourlosttribe
