🌏 Today is World Environmental Health Day! 🌎 This year's theme is air quality and while Santa Feans breathe in our A-grade air, it's important to remember that water, air, ecology, food systems, etc. are ALL connected. One domino hits the next one so today let's take some time to acknowledge Santa Fe's environmental health accomplishments as well as our challenges and how it impacts human health and well being. #savewatersantafe

Great Sand Dunes National Park near Alamosa, Colorado is fantastic year-round!  A couple of Decembers ago, did a quick trip up there after a snowstorm and captured the dunes and surrounding landscape in a snow covered state.  It may have been below 0 Fahrenheit, but it was well worth it.  Fantastic national park!

Last week the stars aligned and I was the right version of myself, in the right place, at the right time, with the right people. It was an honor to finish off my fourth season at Outward Bound in the windy, golden Sangres with such a phenomenal group of veterans. Thank you all for an incredible season full of joy, hardship, and growth. This work fills my heart.

Snow is on the way! Light dusting on the #sangredecristomountains
In the pit of what was once a smoldering, fiery hell. For a second I imagined being shoved in and becoming molten, insanely hot, goo.  Oh well. Haha

Moved to Colorado in 1993 ... It still amazes me ...The turn of Summer to Fall is always bittersweet and both so beautiful ...#mountainfall#mountainclouds#southerncolorado#sangredecristomountains #mountainliving #aspens #southwestliving #santafe #colorado
That time @thirstylittledesertrat dropped acid before we started hiking... wait no, it's the just @plotagraph app ;)

I'll climb these beasts one day. Whether individually or one big traverse.

The aspens are changing already 🍂🍁 -- plus their rustling leaves warned us of an incoming storm that prematurely ended @smallhousebigworld 's and my hike with hail. Next time, we'll make it to the top!

Last night I said goodby to my friend, Summer... and then this morning I was greeted by Summer's next door neighbor, Autumn. I get along with Autumn pretty well too 😉¡Feliz Otoño! 🍂#autumnalequinox

There are loads of these beautiful crystalline rocks 💎 on the property of our little casita here in the hills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. I’m guessing that these stones are what make the soil sparkle and why this mountain range reflects so much light. Do any of you know if these are quartz or pink feldspar, or perhaps a combination? The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are the southernmost starting point the Rocky Mountains.

This was the first of many spectacular views on my weekend hike with @smallhousebigworld in the Sangre de Cristina Mountains. That's the San Luis Valley in the distance.

I ❤️this picture 😍
I was cleaning up the garden and was trying to get an "artistic" shot (meaning not straight on..unusual for me) of the "sunflowers on steroids" that are blooming now...The #nmskies are beautiful, there is Fall in the air, I didn't even realize the 🐝 was coming in for a landing and the 🌻's are gorgeous! From this angle, you wouldn't even know those mountains are over 10,000 ft! Glorious Backyard!! We are so lucky! ⛰🌻🐝❤️ #264_deceiving #365_today #santafenm #simplysantafe #santafeartscommission #sangredecristomountains #travelnm #nmnomad #nmoutside #puresw #purenm #fallisintheair #gramofenchantment

Drove high up in the mts today..... these Aspens just amaze me💛💛💛💛#sangredecristomountains #forest #nature #wow
Turned a corner and came face to face with this guy on the trail. Luckily for me I had my camera out and ready to go. #willowlake #sangredecristomountains#sanluisvalley #colorado #liveyouradventure #goatworthy
We had a very exciting day on Crestone Peak that started with a beautiful warm morning and ended with a foggy thunder snow storm that moved in very fast. Luckily when that happened we were in the Cottonwood Lake basin. To get back to our camp we still had to re-climb Broken Hand Pass. After a little while we thought the worst of the storm had passed, so we continued moving towards safety. Halfway up, we heard multiple claps of thunder right behind us. Our choices were to keep moving up to 13,000' or run down towards the lake. Long story short, I got to climb the pass 1.5 times which was soul crushing. To add insult to injury, storm magically disappeared after we got to the other side. We had blue skies and friendly wispy clouds, as if nothing ever happened. Sangres never disappoint with their weirdness - weather, UFO's, creepy locals, ya know what I mean?!

Little Bear has the cutest name out of all 14ers, however there is nothing cute about this dangerous mountain. The Hourglass is very steep and smooth, with loose rock above it. Somehow I still had great time climbing this peak in good company. Not having to deal with Lake Como Road any time soon is a huge bonus 😁

You may say I'm a dreamer,

There is no still shot that even approximates the amazingness of being atop Santa Fe Baldy. Frankly, this video doesn't do it justice either - but the sounds of my panting after summiting and roar of the ferocious wind make it a bit more authentic.

Backcountry hiking kicked my 🐝hind this past weekend, but the views and experience far outweighed the struggle. More photos to come this week!

Not a bad back yard for the weekend. Had a great time camping with @smallhousebigworld in the Sangre de Cristos!

Raising the Rockies. 
The summit of Crestone Peak 14,295'. 90 million years in the making. One moment in time. 
The 26th highest peak in North America. 
The 7th highest peak Colorado. 
4,534' prominence.

The mountain range we are in is the Sangre de Cristos.  Wikipedia says, "According to tradition, "sangre de Cristo" were the last words of a Catholic priest who was killed by Indians." Another version says he saw an alpineglow as he was dying. Our guide on a raft trip mentioned the rocks looking blood red under certain lighting conditions.  Crosses are a great reminder.

The early morning light falls on the saddle of Humboldt Peak. Obstruction Peak, UN 13,799', center, is so called for blocking the view of Challenger Point, Kit Carson Peak and Columbia Point. The north eastern ridge line of Crestone Peak spans across the foreground, with hues of red granite shimmering between the shadows
