June can come soon enough @jane_m_freeman and I have been calling this place our second home for the past 20+ years. I cant wait to start hunting and fly fishing here #colorado #mancos #sanjuannationalforest #durango #whatgetsyououtdoors #cabinlife #flyfishing #duranglers
From #sanjuannationalforest to #carsonnationalforest in a few hours.. up and over the #continentaldivide -  can’t wait to do some summer camping in these forests 🌳
#tbt to what low-impact, human-powered, quiet backcountry bikepacking mountain biking looks like. On the Colorado Trail, Segment 25, San Juan National Forest, September 2016. This is what real backcountry mountain biking looks like.

So tell me, please, how is this type of biking a threat to #wilderness? It’s not, plain and simple. There are many threats to public lands and Wilderness, and mountain biking is not one of them.

It was cold at night, the drives were long but the adventure was worth it! These three dudes made the journey one for the books! We lived our dream of exploring the west!

Super cute Western Spotted Skunk (#Spilogale gracilis) near Durango, Colorado. It was my first time seeing one, and from what I’ve read, it’s pretty strange that this lil dude was out and about during the day (it was about 3pm). #spottedskunk #smammals #sanjuannationalforest

On our way to make a 6 a.m. flight out of Cortez, Colo., to head back to Kansas. Can't say im excited about that. Every time I'm in the mountains I never want to leave. Someday I wont have to say goodbye to these killer views. Until next time, mountains.. #itstooearly #earlymorningflight #smallplane #mountains #snow #killerviews #idontwanttoleave #illliveheresomeday #forest  #Colorado #kansas #cellphonepic #sanjuannationalforest #durangoco #vacation

Today was @kay_neal16 and I's last day of skiing at Purgatory. We somehow managed to ski eight consecutive days without a day of rest. My body is sore, to say the least! Despite only three runs on the mountain being open it was still a great time away from the frozen tundra that is Kansas. I saw a story from the Denver Post that the snow pack is the worst it has been in over 30 years. That's no joke! This time last year, Purgatory was 100% open. It's only around 20% right now. So, #prayforsnow ! Hopefully when we come back the conditions will be better!

Pagosa Peak. January 3, 2018. This is NOT what the San Juan Mountains are supposed to look like in January.

Nothing like driving the #sanjuanskyway in SW Colorado. So glad I had the pleasure of working as a Ranger for the Forest Service to protect these beautiful habitats. .

Ran into this old homestead while driving around Colorado. The only thing left is that old barn and a chimney stack. Apparently the current landlord owners decorate it with stockings for Christmas. Random/cool little find.#colorado #vallecitolake #sanjuannationalforest #explore #neverstopexploring #wanderlust #nikon #nikond800 #blackandwhite #bnwphotography #tamron
Adios Pagosa. Thanks for all the ☀️ #pagosasprings #sanjuannationalforest #hometown

repeat after me
🕰
> i will choose intention. i will adapt as life shifts, learn as life teaches. observe when my conscience compels me. i will lead by letting go. letting go of my past, of any unknowns, of what others think unless it serves me to do otherwise. i will be with my rising chest and beating heart. i will practice patience and presence and pause. i will not resist setbacks, but embrace them as part of my path, part of my legend.
⏳
> i will not live in a perpetual state of divided attention and stimulation if my cognitive and emotional bandwidth are nearing their limits. i will lead with balance to stay soulfully energized. l will coax out my truths and align what is right for my life. my. life.
☀️
> i will define my fears and attack them with vigor. or softness. or both. i will bring a smile to each plight and every fight.
🎉
> i will make my mind my priority. i will make my body my priority. i will approach each moment with openness and compassion instead of impulse and fear and resistance. i will make space for my partner’s needs, how i decide to fuel my body, my creative aspirations, my mental wellbeing, and time in nature. i have a responsibility to own these tenets with conviction.
💪🏼
> wherever i’m headed, i will not turn away from or avoid struggle. i will not pretend that struggle does not exist. i will not feel shame for experiencing struggle. i will simply notice struggle as a chasm, and expose and explore it. i will not attempt to eradicate struggle but will give it room to breathe, acknowledge it, hold it, understand and care for it. i will remind myself that struggle is rarely an inherently bad experience, that it is a chance to evaluate and realign. i will let struggle be part of my composition, allow it to center me. i will remind myself that life flows, it all will come and go so learn to hold rather than grasp. that from time to time i will emotionally react to struggle, and that’s fine, but also recognize the need to be understanding of the consequence.
🙏🏼

A few months ago, we made the decision to exchange safety for uncertainty, and we did so without waiting for "the right time" because I knew there was never going to be a "right time". Living for yourself is important and the risk has been so, so worth it.

Slopes, hot springs, then brewery will forever be the perfect day in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. 
This year I was the first one on the slopes in the morning and made sure to catch one of the last lifts up at closing time. I officially graduated to the black runs instead of blue or green. I also actually beat my brother down the mountain once! We weren’t racing but my brother loves to go really fast and I couldn’t believe I beat him down. My body may be sore but my mind is very refreshed. The mountain air, gliding though the trees on my board, and stunning views from the peak are the perfect reset button. .
