I love that after 22 years of living in Vermont, I'm still discovering new and amazing places.

I love going off the beaten path to find unique spots👣
This hidden spot is Devil’s Bathtub🛁The trail and river weren’t as well marked as poplar trails so we actually missed the bathtub first time we passed it! 
It was also an awesome experience to be under the canopy of so many autumn trees shedding their colored leaves🍂

Any good shoulder season/winter hike recommendations?

Be sure to steal some of these rays this weekend! There are only so many days of warmth left up north. Luckily for us, these mountains provide year round adventures. So, out with the summer tanks and shorts, and in with the layers. We are going to rock this shoulder season until snow hits the ground! 🍂 Happy Friday! - @kierenbritton with @theladyalliance 
Thanks for the photo @jacinthewild and for the tag @mountainbetches! 💜 .

Greece has been surreal. With the arrival of my whole family, it made for an unforgettable trip. It doesn't happen often that you can get almost everyone you love in one place, thousands of miles away from home, yet here we were - on the Greek islands celebrating an extraordinary 26 years of the most handsome brother! It only takes one thing to create a chain reaction, and him spontaneously buying a ticket was the spark to get people rolling! ⠀
⠀
With that being said, a new blog post is up about the reality of traveling with people! And trust me, it's not what you're thinking... ⠀

Cheers!

Lately, I have been having really trying to understand my purpose and how I can best make a positive impact on the world. Sometimes I can get really caught up in my own thoughts and ideas. I have always found hiking into the mountains to be a safe place to reconnect and find clarity.

To my husbands dismay, my acquisition of books had not faltered despite the diminshing shelf space. But it keeps bringing me closer to my dream of a personal floor to ceiling library! With all of my one-armed down time I've been able to dedicate more time to reading. Rather than hoard the magnificent words to myself, I'll start sharing them as I finish. 
This novel was filled with true accounts of the authors cautionary mountain tales. Simpson beautifully describes a mountaineers physical and mental battle that continually draw us to the sport despite the lurking deaths. I loved every page.

For once I am at a loss of words. Its hard to believe how quickly a year can pass by, so much can change and I am a year older. 
1 year later: I visited 6 countries, explored 7 national parks & 27 state parks, climbed 11 mountains, trekked +2,000 miles, visited more forests and lakes than I can count and added a puppy to my family of 2.

I have lived, loved, and lost. Yet, the most important lesson I have learned is to live for myself, to love myself, to laugh often and to do what makes me happy. #hiking #girlswhohike #birthdaygirl

Listening to a handful of female entrepreneurs tonight was amazing. Hearing their fears, successes and failures made me realize that everyone has that inner demon whispering doubts in their ears. I've come to learn that success isnt measured by how far you get, rather it is having the strength to push back against those demons and give it a solid try. Thank you for putting on such an inspirational event @altitudeseven! Picture taken by my most loving @jsargent.356

A moment of calm. The reflection of mountains in this still water caught my eye as I was driving down highway 50. I hadn’t noticed but I’d been driving for the past 45 minutes without any music or podcasts playing. Just my thoughts, loudly ricocheting back and forth against the walls of my brain.
—
Did I call that person back?
—
I don’t have service...
—
Can I get samples to Breck by Friday?
—
Man, I love these mountains.
—
Crap, I’m almost out of sunflower seeds.
—
I’m so cold.
—
Can’t call them back til 5:00, make a reminder in your phone.
—
Gah! I’m overheating!
—
How’s it even possible for the sun to be blaring through the tiny hole in my visor that’s pulled down?
—
64 more miles.
—
Wonder if I can get Beer of the month at.....
—
Ah! Bottom of the foot itch!
—
My forehead hurts from squinting so much.
—
I bet I could land a promo at...
—
Don’t squint, you’ll get wrinkles
—
Woah. Look at these lakes!
— •
And so I pulled over at the next turn off and fell in love with these withered trees that stood naked out in the middle of this pond. Not to mention the reflection. I turned the music on in my car and left the door open as I walked up and down the bank, contorting my body into weird angles to try and get the perfect frame. It’s not perfect. I forgot my camera at home and only had my phone. But man, if there’s anything in this world that can quiet my crazy brain, it’s nature. Sometimes you just need some mountains, blue sky, and a damn good reflection. 💛☀️🌲 #soulshinehighway

knocking on the door to granny-hood yet again. man! these years fly by more quickly than i'd like but not so fast that i don't learn heaps from the experience. this growing old thing has perks: way less 💩s given, more books read, earlier bedtimes, less expectations, a body that knows what feels good and a mind that is more concerned with valuing myself than validating myself. that last part has been valuable beyond measure. the check-in for this year (and probably forever) -- is this decision being authentically made for me and my inner desires or for someone else's approval? external or internal motivation? and then i begin again. to feed my spirit and give it what it's asking for instead of living by someone else's opinion. it's hard because i do care how other people see me because i'm insanely relational. that's why this is my work. it's the only way i am ever going to be 'enough' for myself. and that's all i really need. so i set this intention into the world with all the energy i can muster. #livingwithintention #oldladymusings #alwayslearning #newmooninlibra

There's more beauty in a summit than the eye can behold. 💜  There's beauty within the perseverance that it took to get to the top, within the grit that was needed to push past a steep switchback. There's beauty within the laughs that were shared along the way. And there is beauty within the strength that every person feels once they reach that last step. 
The beauty we see at the top can last forever with one photo. Let the beauty you feel in your strength, grit and perseverance last just as long. Erase self doubt, and climb that mountain. 💪💪 - Happy Trails @kierenbritton for @theladyalliance

The area of Guatape in Colombia is one of our favourites on our trip so far. One thing we've learnt about ourselves during this trip is that we greatly prefer the mountains to the coast. Lakeside views like this top coastal scenery for us any day!

My name is Mikaela and I usually just tell Starbucks baristas "however you want" when they ask how to spell it. I learned to love the outdoors before I could walk in my dad's backpack while he skied and hiked and snowshoed. This is my favorite outfit and I bought two of both the shirt and the shorts. I hate grapefruit flavored anything and sunbathing is my favorite way to relax. The apple bottom jeans song (which I know is called Low) is my favorite old school jam and I have a serious SunIn addiction. My husband-to-be and I met at a day camp when we were kids. I'm recovering from being debilitatingly shy and social anxiety is still something I deal with a lot. Mac n' cheese is my favorite food group and I spend way too much time making my dog's voice and pretending she's a communist. I was homeschooled all the way through high school and graduated college at 20. I am deeply fascinated by terrorism and nuclear weapons and dreamed of working for the CIA for most of high school and college. I'm scared of the dark and hate public transportation with a burning passion. I haven't used a plastic grocery bag since 2014. I like unhealthy amounts of bass and struggle with having space for outdoor gear or space for my sub. I never felt like I could relate to a label until hipster and millennial came along and I am proudly both. I really like words and introductions are my favorite. I have a weakness for coffee, especially hipster coffee shops and finding new restaurants is one of my passions. I love to cook and try new recipes every week. This is my very favorite time of year, until the seasons change. I think I just love the beautiful newness of a changing world. Noticing the beauty in the little things is my specialty. As a kid, I used to desperately wish I would wake up in the Oregon Trail times. I don't have a good relationship with my mom, but my dad is one of my best friends. I walk fast and hike slow. I think bunnies are adorable. And squirrels. I have a thing for cuddly pests. Kenzie was supposed to be my sister's dog, but she ended up being my girl. I've had her since she was just weeks old.
A few random facts for my new followers😘

• reflections• My brain is always moving nonstop, even when I’m in some of the most amazing and spectacular locations. Thinking about the last adventure I was on, my next big trip, the upcoming workweek, the long drive home, etc. In those moments I have to reel myself back in and remind myself to stay in the PRESENT and soak up every bit of my surroundings. Because who knows if I will ever be in this beautiful space again 🏔

Beaming Fear | In order to meet a rendevous for resupply during our #JMT hike, we decided to exit the trail via #ShepherdPass Trail rather than our planned route out using Kearsarge Pass Trail. This choice would be one of the biggest mistakes we made during our expedition. Unbeknownst to us, Shepherd Pass is a sparsely traveled pass known for its steep and gnarly scree-covered 'path' down. After a pleasant trek through otherworldly marshes, we were met by a 700 foot vertical chute of snow (it wasn't actually vertical but it was unnervingly steep); however, we were fortunate enough to have a softer white substance to traverse rather than have to worry about skidding down on the scree. We faced the horrid prospect of heading down the snow or turn back, make our way to Kearsarge Pass, and miss our scheduled pick-up. We chose to press on and pussyfoot over Satan's shelf and plod down the decline of death with our nonexistent mountaineering skills and second-time use of crampons, a terrorizing experience that has scarred me permanently by instilling a fear of traversing steep snow. The experience was heightened by the additional 6,000 feet we needed to descend to reach Owens Valley. In this image I am smiling, but in reality, I was absolutely terrified.

Beaming Fear | In order to meet a rendevous for resupply during our #JMT  hike, we decided to exit the trail via #ShepherdPass  Trail rather than our planned route out using Kearsarge Pass Trail. This choice would be one of the biggest mistakes we made during our expedition. Unbeknownst to us, Shepherd Pass is a sparsely traveled pass known for its steep and gnarly scree-covered 'path' down. After a pleasant trek through otherworldly marshes, we were met by a 700 foot vertical chute of snow (it wasn't actually vertical but it was unnervingly steep); however, we were fortunate enough to have a softer white substance to traverse rather than have to worry about skidding down on the scree. We faced the horrid prospect of heading down the snow or turn back, make our way to Kearsarge Pass, and miss our scheduled pick-up. We chose to press on and pussyfoot over Satan's shelf and plod down the decline of death with our nonexistent mountaineering skills and second-time use of crampons, a terrorizing experience that has scarred me permanently by instilling a fear of traversing steep snow. The experience was heightened by the additional 6,000 feet we needed to descend to reach Owens Valley. In this image I am smiling, but in reality, I was absolutely terrified.

"We never look deeply into the quality of a tree; we never really touch it, feel its solidity, its rough bark, and hear the sound that is part of the tree. Not the sound of wind through the leaves, not the breeze of a morning that flutters the leaves, but its own sound, the sound of the trunk and the silent sound of the roots."
-Jiddu Krishnamurti

This guy right here. It doesn't matter what kind of day I'm having, or what decisions I've made, or what kind of mood I'm in. He always looks at me with the same non-judgemental eyes that are so soft and full of unending love. It's easy for all the stress to melt away when you know that a creature with as pure a heart as a dog loves you with their entire being.

"No one can teach riding as well as a horse." C.S. Lewis

So here's to the horses that mend our hearts and touch our souls... the good morning nickers and tickly whiskers... To the horses that hear our fears and dry our tears... the quiet eyes and soft hearts... To the horses that gift us freedom with temporary wings... A retired Dejianna comin' in hot for cookies... 10•09•17

Feels good to be back with the @natgeo family for a bit. If you had asked me 6 months ago if I thought I would be here again dreaming up big things...I wouldn't have believed it. So grateful for a body that can go on planes, travel and still explore, and to organizations that support you regardless. #roadtorecovery #natgeo #sciencetelling #life #washingtondc #letsexplore.

Confession: I used to really dislike the color #yellow. I don’t even know why! But now I love it. It’s #happy, #bright, it demands attention and recognition.
What about you? What’s something that you changed your mind on over the years? I’d love to know!

Having a sibling is like having a friend for life.  One of the best gifts my parents could have given me ❤️ This is a throw back to this summer's backpacking trip with my bro.  There's no kind of travel more comfortable than with someone you've grown up with and known your whole life. 😊

Greece is our last stop in Europe before we head south to Nepal, and after almost three months in Europe (we didn't get to it all, but someday we will) it's interesting to discuss the differences between every place we have visited. Some cultures value their time with family and friends above all else shutting down to vacation for the full month of August, or even valuing self care more with daily siestas in the afternoon. There are places where techno is life, and clubbing is the heartbeat. In some, drinking wine with every meal is not only acceptable - it's encouraged. And almost everywhere we've been, dogs are like people, they can go into any restaurant, sit down and they'll get served water just as we do, if not before...

Whatever you have to do to find YOUR freedom, DO IT. Tell your fears to fuck off and run with it. Find your light, your magic and let it shine. Otherwise, what’s the point? △↟
