So far on my drives between Toronto and Pembroke the fall colors aren't anywhere near these (from Killarney a couple of years ago). I fear the leaves may just dry up and fall off this year with the topsy turvy weather we've had.

A year ago, we woke up early. Well really, we were cold all night in our tiny $20 tent, with maybe a couple hours of bad sleep, so we decided to get going with the first light available. We were hiking for a good two hours in the shade of the Mount Robson, stepping over frozen puddles, my hands and feet were incredibly cold. We kept walking. Finally, the sun rose high enough to send its warmth into the valley. Instant relief.

Scenes from a day-long nature and self connection event I co-produced last weekend, called Grounding Into the Wisdom of the Earth. I feel so grateful to have created it with such a group of beautiful earth-centered authentic folks and to meet a whole new group of people who felt the call to reconnect. It was our first event together and had about 20 people. A wonderful day all around!! 😀🌲🐝🐰 My offering was called "Sacred Pause and the Love Affair with Nature." The day before I had a reaction to that, given the state of our culture and ecological collapse and insane things unfolding. I was like, "fuck, who has time for pausing, who has time for lovey-dovey nature crap, we got shit to do!!" And I've had that reaction before, as perhaps you have.

Upon regrounding, I realized that taking a sacred pause and rediscovering our love and connection for nature and others is EXACTLY what is needed. In the sacred pause of BEING (as opposed to incessant and unintentional doing) and reconnecting is where the light gets in, it's where our authentic, grounded self is found, it's from where the true voices that we neglect emerge. I don't know all the answers, but surely slowing down and reconnecting has got to be one of them. And then, the Being assists in the DOING that must be done, but from a more true and aligned place.

When going up north in September you're really hoping for blue skies and sun. You see all the colors of the changing leaves better and if you're lucky a crisp night with clear skies can mean the aurora comes out to dance. Well, we had rain and fog pretty much all week. But isn't that pretty magical too?

Blogissa tarina meidän retkestä Vanhankaupunginlahden luonnonsuojelualueelle. Kyseessä on upea luontokohde yllättävän lähellä Helsingin keskustaa. Se on erityisesti tuhansille muuttolinnuille tärkeä levähdyspaikka, jonne kannattaa lähteä kauempaakin päiväretkelle ja vaikkapa kiikaroimaan lintutorneihin.

Me vietettiin päivä luontohavaintoja tehden, lampaita moikkaillen ja herkkuruokaa trangialla kokkaillen. Kohde on myös osittain esteetön uusittujen "poikkispuiden" myötä, joka tarkoittaa sitä, että yhä useammalla on mahdollisuus tutustua alueeseen. 💚 Lue blogista lisää meidän retkestä ja vinkeistä alueelle!

This friday I got to guide a wonderful group of women through the nationalpark of Pyhä-Luosto with fatbikes. Great tracks, great views, great food, great company and siberian jays flying everywhere!
🍁🌲
Perjantaina sain kunnian vetää pitkän fättärirundin Pyhä-Luoston kansallispuistossa erittäin mukavalle naisporukalle. Polut, maisemat, ruoka ja seura oli kaikki ihan loistavia. Kuukkelitkin kävivät tervehtimässä!

First wilderness guide course - a hike in Lappland - is behind and I am back home. Gears are drying. I have a last half a litre of stream water still left in my bottle. I am trying to find my inner list-and-task-person and adapt the rhythm and pace of my normal life. It hurts a little.

Y'all is it really autumn already?? I think in Montana it might be happening. I went for a hike yesterday and leaves were yellow, orange and red! And snow is in the forecast this weekend! #mixedemotions 🍁🍂🍄

Turns out early morning is not the time to get the iconic photo of this place. But I've still never seen anything like it. I think the early alarm clock and the short hike was still worth it. #grandprismaticspring #yellowstonepledge

Friends, I finally updated my blog with a new look! And a new post! (link in bio or go to yukioutside.com)

This time last year my summer in Alaska came to an end as I boarded the ferry from Juneau to Skagway for the start of my road trip down through Canada. As my summer job in Montana is also coming to an end, I finally had time to write up something I've been meaning to do for a while:
a how-to on working and traveling, seasonally! (see link in bio). While I am still not sure what my "passion" is, or even what my "dream-job" would look like, I'm so grateful that these past few seasons I've gotten closer to a work-life-travel balance that resonates with me. What I've found to be important: your day-job allows you to pursue your interests. Although I'm not financially making anywhere near what I used to as a software engineer, I've been able to see, do and explore new places in ways I never even knew existed. I mean, has anyone from the lower 48 ever heard of Tracy Arm Fjord???

Me tehtiin tänään retki lähiluontoon Helsingissä, retkikohteena Vanhankaupunginlahden luonnonsuojelualue. Päivään mahtui luonnon tarkkailua, rupattelua, naurua ja herkkujen kokkailua sekä lampaiden moikkailua! 😛 Tän piti olla saderetki, mut sade kiersi meidät!☀💦 saatiin mukaan oma lintuopas Ale! 😊

Today we visited beautiful day trip destination, Lammassaari, close to Helsinki city center. Definitely worth visiting!👍 #luontohaaste #eräopas #lammassaari #kuusiluoto #myhelsinki

Shoutout to my kayaking peeps. Thanks for all the love and support.  It's been rough not being on the water this summer. #seakayaking #kayaking #wildernessguide #eastcoast #novascotia .... and here's proof those ten year old shirts still exist!! Sadly however the time has come to announce there will be no 9th Annual Hearnapalooza - I don't have the energy, and the logistics of getting me to and from the island without putting me outside a golden hour are too complicated. :(
