"I hike as much as possible as a way to meet people and to get my dog, Kado, out and running. It’s really become my most important coping skill for dealing with everything life throws at me." Here's the story of our friend Mariah (@mariahzeise) ⬇:
.
"I moved to Seattle from Wisconsin a year and a half ago and fell in love with how beautiful the Pacific Northwest (PNW) is, and of course the mountains that I didn’t have back home. I moved out here with just my dog, not knowing a soul who lived in the PNW. So as a way to cope with the initial loneliness, I went to the mountains, and my dog and I absolutely fell in love." - via @mariahzeise // #PeopleWhoHike

"This may seem a bit cliche, but heartbreak (from an ended relationship) made me come out of my comfort zone. I fell in love with nature’s beauty, the way it made me feel. I felt like I was able to conquer the world!" Here's the story of our friend Margaret (@_mmmargiie) ⬇:
.
"I believe in the saying 'everything happens for a reason'. I wasn’t much of an outdoor girl until I started hiking a few years ago. I hated bugs, dirt, and sweat. The feeling of comfort every single time I reach the top... it takes my breath away. I’m glad I went through the heartache, because with every hike I become a more carefree, loving, confident, and stronger person than I was before." - via @_mmmargiie // #PeopleWhoHike

"The trail is called 'Dronningstien' which means the queens trail, from when the queen of Norway went there in 2009. The mountain I am standing on is called 'Husfjellet' which means the house mountain." Here's the story of our friend Asne (@asnekarolius) ⬇:
.
"I come from a quite spectacular part of Norway, with steep mountains that go straight into the ocean. When I was young I used to love looking at them, dreaming of how the view from up there would look like. When I was 14 years old, my eye doctor discovered that I have a degenerating eye condition, that makes my vision gradually worse. He told me I could go blind one day. After that, when I climbed the mountain Segla for the first time, I thought, 'I have to see as much of this georgeous nature as I can while I have my vision!' So it has become my biggest passion, my love for nature. The sounds and smells, has got me to think, that even if I go blind, I could still enjoy nature." - via @asnekarolius // #PeopleWhoHike

Who here loves our National Parks?
.
"I fell in love with the National Park system and set a goal to hike in all 59. This picture, taken in my 42nd Park, is of a friend of mine running through a flock of Willett on the coast of Florida in the Everglades National Park during sunset." Here's the story of our friend Greg (@gregexploresplanetearth) ⬇:
.
"I live relatively close to Acaicia National Park, so I started a 4 month long road trip there (summer of 2016). I went through Shenandoah and the Great Smokey mountains, but didn’t really get how breathtaking and special each one is until I got to Big Bend in Texas. The drive along the Rio Grande was like nothing I’ve ever seen. I truly appreciate how each park has something unique featured. Crater Lake and Glacier were the most aesthetically breathtaking to me." - via @gregexploresplanetearth // #PeopleWhoHike

Didn't realize how much I missed nature until I got the chance to get out of the city with these two....

Two weeks left of this year and change is in the air. On many days the planner in me wonders ‘what am I doing??’ Grasping for control in knowing what’s next. But those days have lessened recently. Letting go and opening up to the bigger picture. Feeling free, saying yes and trusting in how that unfolds. 
The world is alive, vibrant and full of ever-evolving possibility. As the winds blow sculpting the natural world around us, let the rhythm of the soul sculpt the way for the next adventure, lesson, relationship...
You don’t need to know the answer. 
Having the courage to ask the question is enough ✨💛

"The shit that makes your heart beat faster and your eyes glow when you do it or talk about it, no matter if it’s hiking, yoga, gardening, painting, sex, meditation, photography, going for walks, helping others - do that. Do it as often as you can. Because that’s what life is about. Creating as many passionate, happy moments as possible. Don’t let anyone stop you from doing the things you love - not even yourself." #mymotto #livefree #beadventurous

My snow-filled weekend is off to a great start! Our snowshoeing hike was like out of a dream. We were quite literally walking in a winter wonderland. The snow was falling at such a delicate pace that it almost seemed unreal. Like a frozen picture with only the snow falling. Today was perfect - and we get to do it all over again tomorrow!

The start of my day was colorful! I hiked 20 miles in 6 hours to complete all the trails in Cave Creek Regional Park in Cave Creek, Arizona. Came face to face with a horse, petted several pups and met people on the trail that had questions about my hiking goals. Satisfied Saturday! #hikerlife #womenwhoexplore  #whyihike #picoftheday #southwest #mountains #ABC15 #hiking #optoutside #landscapephotography #findyourpark #wanderlust #mamiesmissions #sky #Arizona #hikearizona #cavecreekregionalpark

Look both ways before you cross the street, if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all, always help a friend when you can, and take care of the planet created for you out of love. #teachourlittles #impactday #letskeepitwild #wherethewildkeepersare

I love these tiny little birds!  I saw several on my walk this am.  Did you know that the fluttering wings of a hummingbird move in the pattern of an infinity symbol?

Beautiful days, stunning views, hiking along an unmaintained trail to Chocolate Lakes and too much adventure... but here, at a melt lake, it was silent, I was alone under blue skies, gazing all around at the snowy slopes and jagged peaks. #optoutside #bishoppasstrail #inyonationalforest #sierranevada #california #mountains #backpacking #thegreatoutdoors #naturephotography #goingoutisgoingin #snow #whyihike #trailtreasures #hiking

As complexly simple as a grain of sand, connected to it all here together.

I can’t describe this place other than to write something confusing, but you get what I’m saying. Not only is it a beautiful, strange landscape, but you can also go sledding here! We tried to do this, but unfortunately our sleds became casualties of the road when they flew off our car’s roof. We had no idea this happend, so watching the dogs go crazy in the sand was just as fun. Seriously, dogs love sand dunes.

This past year of life has been one for the books. I think if I had to choose a theme to sum it up, it would be 'Brand New' (not the band). This past year was filled with new beginnings, new ideas, new desires, new adventures, new problems, and best of all, new friendships. All these things have taught me so much about myself and where I want to go in life. Always, but especially today, I am thankful for my friends and family that are continually supporting me in all that I do, even when they think it's crazy. Here's to another year of life including: tiny house planning, not quitting a job after six months to travel, getting one step closer to finishing school #oldestkidinclass , and hopefully many new and lasting friendships with many new and lasting memories. ✌🏽💛

We all have our reasons for overtime, for putting up with stress, for cranking through one more project, client, day, week, month... ... and views like this are mine. #whyihike #earnyourview #freelancelife .

I love finding new places even if they’re right next to places I’ve been countless times... watching the sun go down in my backyard this evening was stunning...

I remember first hiking this trail with my cousin, @kalimahal, when it was completely snow packed and in our regular hiking boots while it was lightly snowing. Hiking in the snow is no joke, especially when your leg gets swallowed up by snow with just about every step you take. Then I went back and hiked it in July, when the trail was completely visible... it only took 20 minutes tops hahaha. I highly recommend this hike during sunrise or to stargaze. Just be prepared for chilly winds, but it’s worth soaking in the panoramic views of Tahoe.

Going through old trip photos and reading travel journals. I'm not sure what started my visit to memory lane, but it got me thinking. I've been pretty brave. Not just this last 7 years (since I started traveling), but always. Don't get me wrong, I'm scared all the damn time. But when it comes to deciding a direction, I generally choose what I most want rather than what seems easiest. I like to try things. There are very few things in my life that have left me wondering, "what if?" Because generally I've tried and either failed or succeeded. But I've tried. And now I’m at this definite fork in the road. Again. Because inevitably that’s what life is...a series of changes. For once, I’m also finding I don’t exactly know what I want. I could take several different roads, and they’d all probably be just fine. And I’m not used to not knowing, not having a definite want. I crave adventure, but I also crave stability. I like things to be both comfortable and uncomfortable, and I find those two things pushing me in different directions. I wonder if it’s possible to set up a life with equal amounts of both? It’s probably time to get creative here. More to come... xo 💕
