Early morning piñon jays and the first warm suspirations of the sunlit sandstone after a cold desert night.
I love the desert madly always, but particularly in this moment.

Little Alejandro, big hoodoos.

This park never bores me. It’s simple. The fragile nature of this rock means there’s not a lot of technical adventures here, but the features are bizarre and striking, and I’m always excited to roll through. I need to make an intentional trip to hike the Under the Rim Trail, it seems I’m always popping into Bryce on my way somewhere like Escalante or Moab. Bryce deserves better than that!

We had the opportunity to explore the Puebloan ruin Moon House within Bears Ears National Monument today. This place blew us away and is only one small example of why these 1.3 million acres of pristine wilderness, Native American sacred land, and historical sites demands protection and distinction as a national monument.

Living in the desert Southwest makes it easy to forget that this area was once the ocean floor. Sometimes the earth reminds us, though, if we remember to look.

I could walk forever with beauty. Our steps are not measured in miles but in the amount of time we are pulled forward by awe. This is another gift from our national parks, to be led by the vistas, to forget what nags us at home and remember what sustains us, the horizon. ~Terry Tempest Williams

Vulnerability time: I’ve been struggling lately.
.
Nothing more than any normal adult faces from time to time, but it causes discomfort. We all censor and curate our lives on this platform to create the image that our lives are fulfilling and adventurous all of the time. We all know that’s false. I’m experiencing that a lot right now. I have an amazing job, a cute house, a wonderful partner, two spectacular dogs, and I live in a place where I am surrounded by natural beauty. But I am so lonely.
.
I knew moving back here that loneliness and community would be one of my biggest challenges, as that’s what I struggled with most when I lived here right out of college. But then I had a built in community with my work and 8/6 schedule. I no longer work for that company but find myself on the periphery still as my partner still works in the field. My friends that I have made here are fantastic people, but they have their own lives and the field schedule too, and so I find myself spending upwards of a week and sometimes more at a time not socializing at all outside of work. I love my coworkers but it’s not the sustaining connection I need.
.
I try hard not to let solitude stop me from exploring and going on adventures, but it’s getting harder. I’m not one of those people who likes solo trips. Part of the joy of being outside and adventuring is the joy of sharing it with others. I love myself deeply, but I am more fulfilled by time shared than alone. It’s just how I work.
.
Maybe I need more time to foster community. Maybe it’s just a reality of living here that I will have to face and adjust to. I’m not sure yet. For now, I am struggling and that is real. And that is honest and okay. Thank goodness for self-timers to capture beautiful moments in solitude.

Great weekend volunteering for @protectwildutah! Aside from doing some trail rehab, I met some wonderful people - and hung out with @laurajayne93 and @corpatcro! Hurray! #suwa #protectwildutah #southernutah #gsenm #savegrandstaircase #calfcreekfalls #lowercalfcreekfalls #brycecanyonnationalpark
Protip: if you continue down the Halls Creek drainage past the narrows, you'll bushwack through a lot of mesquite and eventually pop out at a random tentacle of Lake Powell. Actually, I don't know if this is a pro tip. It's a lot of mesquite to push through. And cactus on the higher slopes. Yeah don't do this. Just enjoy the narrows.

On this trip, I got to play with my DSLR after not taking it out of its case for a literal year. Don't remember how to take pictures that do the subject, i.e. gorgeous landscapes, any justice. Do remember where to put the lens cap when pocket space is limited.

The team arrived in Bryce Canyon National Park today & we were so filled with wonder (I mean look at it!!)! Public lands blow us away every day we are on this trip, every landscape is inspiring. You really can't find a bad view. We're looking forward to sharing more about what we learned and loved about Bryce with you all in our upcoming blog post! #keepitpublic #protectwildutah

Silent night 💫

My first and most lasting impression of the desert was the power of the silence out there. I still seek it out, and crave it when I'm in cities for too long...Only had time for a very quick doodle last night, so decided to try my hand at a nightscape✨(color palette for course inspired by @drawntohighplaces 😉💜) #30daysofdesert #protectbearsears #protectwildutah #rocktober #vanlife

Who doesn't love rumbling along rutted out two tracks, anticipating the first pitch while trying to hold onto the first cup of coffee? This experience is pretty much quintessential Indian Cree, however off-road travel is most certainly an impact concern in the desert. Blowing dust and erosion can have huge long term impacts in fragile areas. While bush-bashing is a bonafide past-time for climbers, it's important to stay in marked trails and roads whenever possible! #30daysofdesert #rockclimbing #indiancreek #protectbearsears #vanlife #protectwildutah #leaveitbetter

Exactly one year ago today we woke up along the Colorado River in Moab for the first time. After driving all night we were exhausted, but as Jerrod slept the sun started to rise. I watched as the rocks around me became visible in the morning light, like they were on fire. It was and still is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Any sense of exhaustion was immediately gone as I looked around me. This was heaven. We were home.

3 trips back in 365 days still isn’t enough. We’ll see you again soon Moab.

Life is all about P E R S P E C T I V E.
.
Sometimes I feel like I live a double life. I have an incredible job, I get to spend time outside the office working with incredible young women and horses. But I spend 40-50 hours a week at work, and much of it sedentary and inside. I am lucky enough to work four long days each week and enjoy three day weekends, which has been integral to my self-care and emotional refueling each week.
.
I try my damndest to spend those three days each week, 12 days a month, adventuring hard. Living out of the back of the 4Runner, climbing in any one of a multitude of amazing spots around my town, skiing, dropping canyons in Zion or Escalante.
.
Still I find myself losing perspective and comparing myself. How great is my life! I live in an incredible place and I have three day weekends! I have a wonderful house and amazing job! And still I find myself envying those of my friends and people I follow on this platform who dirtbag full time and live out of their vans or trucks. I want this, but it likely won’t be possible with the career I’ve chosen. I’ve chosen the work of face to face, people work. Not something I can do on the road.
.
Maybe this double life is the sacrifice I make to live my fullest life: work that matters and a life worth living. I just need to remember to find that perspective, comparing ourselves to others rarely ends well.

This is a super popular canyon, and no surprise there. It’s technically simple and absolutely gorgeous. Crystal clear and ice cold flowing water, strange geological features, and beautiful approach and exit all make this a wonderful day in Zion. Wetsuits required, this one is COLD!
.
This is one of those canyons that I wish wasn’t so hard to get permits for. I live half an hour from the trailhead but have only done it once.

"to return to an alert innocence is not
so much an effort, like moving a pile of bricks
from here to there,
.
as it is standing still long enough to let the spirit find you.
.
it is said that all that you are seeking
is also seeking you,
that if you lie still, sit still, it will find you.
.
it has been waiting for you a long time.
once it is here,
don't move away. rest.
see what happens next."

Close to 100,000 archaeological and cultural sites are tucked beneath swooping sandstone outcroppings and nestled in canyons hidden deep within Bears Ears National Monument. Many areas within Bears Ears are so rich in cultural remnants that it's actually difficult not to accidentally tread on exquisitely painted or carved pottery fragments! In recent years increased impact and plundering have focused attention on the difficult question of how best to preserve sensitive sites. #30daysofdesert #protectbearsears #protectwildutah #keepitpublic

Shoutout to @USUAggieLife scholars of SOSNR, the Student Organization for Society & Natural Resources. These active academics are taking a stand for our #NationalMonuments! They're urging @GovernorHerbert to preserve the integrity of #PublicLands in Utah.
