Hugging it out with the universe after topping out on Siám Smánit. My first time ever on multi-pitch trad featured 15 glorious pitches up 500m with the best partner I could ask for. An unforgettable, full-on day for so many reasons 💩Lead, morale, and photo credz go to @max.shots .

@Regrann from @jgoughphotography -  I've  created a group and hopefully an organization (in the future) called @nativewomenswilderness .  It will be in collaboration of Natives Outdoors and Woman's Wilderness, both based out here in Colorado.  My hope is to bring our Native woman together in celebration of our love for the outdoors.
•
I'm also hoping to begin the change of the outdoor stigma of what women should look like in the outdoor realm.  If you look at our outdoor industries, very rarely do you see any women of color, let alone a Native Woman.  I want to change this.  I also want this to be a place where other women can come together, to share their stories, to learn, and to be in admiration & support of each other.
•
I want more of our Native Women to be featured in the Outdoor Industry, for isn't this our playgrounds and Sacred Lands that's being portrayed, why not portray our Women playing in this beauty.

"I grew up in urban Jamaica, spent summers in the country side, studied geography and have always been outdoorsy - except there was no classification per se of what that is. It's just what we do in the Caribbean. After moving to boston- the city, I lost my sense of being. I found myself spending most of my time in malls and restaurants. A few years ago I made a decision to go back to the places I knew and that knew me, the outdoors. However, as a black woman, the narrative says it's not for me. I ignore it. The climate is new, I push through it, and it can be lonely, when friends have other interests...I plan to find and build my tribe." -@tammyanka

Cooler, rainy days like today has us looking forward to some of the best hiking and camping weather of the year! Last September we were exploring the Cordillera Blanca mountain range of the Andes close to Huaraz, Peru. At over 18,000 ft elevation, Lake Churup has views for days, as well as a stunning glacier lake at the very top. We highly recommend you doing a couple acclimatization hikes around Huaraz prior to hiking Lake Churup. Hang out in Huaraz for as long as possible. There are great lodging and food selections and the people are super nice.

Ok, so it was really the "3 of us" 'cuz Momma Bear took the photo, but you get the idea.

I find that #children serve as mirrors for their parents. Not in that they mimic what we do, but in that they reflect to us who we see ourselves as vs. who we want to be. 
I say that because when I think about how I want my #daughter to feel/ be growing up (#strong, #confident, #compassionate, etc.) it makes me wonder if that's what she sees in my actions, which causes me to reflect on who I am vs. who I want her to be. 
Which causes me to confront the things (fears, insecurities and doubts) that prevent me from showing her who she can be. 
So in essence when I look into my Snuggle Monster's eyes, I see who I want to be, does that make sense????? Let me know.

#bhaktifest - It's been a GLORIOUS day of remembering who we truly are - divine spirits as powerful as the sun.  There was connection and healing at the women's red tent, yoga, kirtan, sound healing, and time with sis Gen @indekahta.  The smiles, hugs, and laughter here remind us that life is good. Find joy and presence in all that you do.

Whenever I see waterfalls I tend to think of my mother. Waterfalls are power, constantly feeding rivers with life. They are non stop powerhouses ,yet so soothing and magical. As a minority my mother has had to overcome a lot of obstacles...especially with the language barrier but still, she perseveres and cares for her children in the best ways. She is a waterfall, a powerful Latina with drive and endless love. What do waterfalls mean to you? ⠀

Tackled Mount Diablo with #womenofcolorinnature in May.
This was a huge challenge

An inspiring inward adventure with this beautiful soul sister!  Reposting her testimony @emkhaybee -- "Raw talk: Yesterday's hike through Chalk Mountain was a gnarly one... We started at 7:30 am and trekked until 9:30 pm. We were not even half way through the hike when I threw my backpack down in defeat just about every fifteen minutes. Every fiber of my body was done, and we were only 6 miles into it, 10.5 miles left to go. The sun was beaming at what might have been easy bake oven temperatures and everything from my eyelids to my thighs was sweaty and chafing. The air smelled like a sauna. At every exposed part of the trail, whenever we inched out of the shelter of tree shade or looked up at another steep incline I questioned, "Why do you hate me sun?!" I wanted to be left behind likely until the mountain lions would be out for blood, but my cuz @indekahta would not let me give up. I yelled into the sky, "I'm too fucking fat for this shit!" With her stern words of encouragement we stayed the course. My mind, body, and soul was exhausted, but we made it to the very end, spooked at every rustle in the distance, watching each other's backs for murderers. This hike played our fears and tested our fortitude. Long story short, I died and as a zombie was last night eating a burger from the world's busiest McDonalds - eagerly replacing lost calories. Today... I'm alive! I feel glorious, and there is a deepened appreciation for what our soldiers put themselves through to protect our country! My lady Rowena Barabad Floresca, throughout the hike as delirium set in and the drinkable water supply ran low, I imagined that this trek was in some ways comparable to what you went through as a soldier, that you must have trudged regularly through extreme weather conditions with limited resources.#nolimitsoldiers. Cheers to all with cups filled to the brim with water - water to drink, to swim, to cleanse. It's a powerful element. The sun too... Women Of Color In Nature is a force to be reckoned with though"! ✨🤜🏽🤛🏽✨ #womenofcolorinnature #diversyoutdoors #adventureculture #adventuregap #outdoorasians #trailsnotscales #fatgirlhiking #forceofnature #outdoorwomen #melaninbasecamp.

Cheers to all with cups filled to the brim with water - water to drink, to swim, to cleanse. It's a powerful element. The sun too... Women Of Color In Nature is a force to be reckoned with though"! ✨🤜🏽🤛🏽✨ #womenofcolorinnature  #diversyoutdoors  #adventureculture  #adventuregap  #outdoorasians  #trailsnotscales  #fatgirlhiking  #forceofnature  #outdoorwomen  #melaninbasecamp .
This #smallparksaturday we are going to Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in NY. You can learn of this great American who was instrumental in the Underground Railroad movement and the history behind it. ••••••
Many thanks to our friends at Fort Stanwix @fort.stanwix.nps for sharing this neighboring park. ・・・
“I was the conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can't say — I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.” - Harriet Tubman
.
Harriet Tubman risked her life and repeatedly ventured back to the community where she was born on the eastern shore of Maryland to rescue family, friends, and others. Discover more about Harriet Tubman’s life in freedom at the newly-established Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in Auburn, New York. The park is just 73 miles west of Fort Stanwix....Pictured is Harriet Tubman's home in Auburn, New York.

There are no words to describe the pain and struggle of going uphill with a heavy uncomfortable pack.  Chronic pain has been my frenemy for 10 years now and I struggle daily to find comfort in my mind and body.  This internal management requires immense amount of energy which takes away from my ability to fully show up for my external world. When I can't show up, I feel sad and frustrated.  For this trek, I had to NOT be the powerless victim. I had to intentionally apply techniques that I've learned in yoga, taichi, qigong, meditation in order to find a flow in my breath and in my body.  There was some pain relief; my body and mind felt more expansive even with the pack weighing me down. These ancient teachings are a true gift! (Thanks @indekahta for your positive encouragements and reminders 💕). I am a very happy and proud camper here after backpacking for 8 miles from Echo Lake to Lake Aloha in Desolation Wilderness.  Who else out there quietly suffers from chronic pain?  What are your methods for healing?  I find sharing stories help me feel that I am not alone in this struggle. Thank you for reading. 🙏🏽

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn. " - John Muir .
.
This week has been a rough one, to say the least, and we think the best therapy for that is to run away to the mountains. We hope that everyone else is able to get outdoors this upcoming weekend and spend some time with Mother Nature. .

"If the Virgin River can carve these canyons, how would its waters transform me? During my solo road trip across the country, I visited Zion National Park and hiked nine miles in the river, into and out of Orderville Canyon and into the hallowed Wall Street slot canyon region. I am a Latina of Salvadoran and Mexican heritage. I weigh 205 lbs and wear a size 16. I don't look like the other solo hikers I silently walked through the river that day and I felt the greatest joy I have ever felt in my life. What an amazing place. What a privilege to be there. Hiking this Canyon alone is the best decision I've ever made. When I got to the park I noticed a few solo female hikers holding coffee cups from my hotel so we talked while waiting for the shuttle into the park. They were all white and very slender. We agreed to check in at the hotel that night to make sure everyone got back safe. And that night they talked about our pace or how long it took us to get where. The women talked about the deeper pools where the water went up to our chest and how cold it got for them, but I didn't get cold there. I wondered if it's because I'm thicker or because I have better circulation than them due to being a king distance runner. It just reminded me that size isn't the same as fitness. And that each type of activity requires different competencies." -Ester / @entrujillo

Exposure is liberating, mind boggling and pants wetting, all at the same time.

Working 80 hrs this week so I can play in the mountains for the two weeks after. Stoked!! 📸 @mir__burger

Without a doubt, I can always find myself, and my sense of peace, in nature. After a long drive, shouting the lyrics to my favorite songs at the top of my lungs, banging on the steering wheel and swaying my hair about like a crazy person. In those few hours I let myself go. I give myself a chance to release any, and every feeling I've been holding hostage. All of the anger, frustration, pissed off, "what the f*ck is happening to our world???" thoughts and anxieties. It never ceases to fail me.
When I find myself coming off the highway and cutting onto a tiny road that only I and a few others know the destination to, I roll down all the windows and let the sun and wind soothe me. It is through those thirty minutes, that hour, chugging my 14 year old vehicle through the twists and curves of the mountains, that I can suddenly find myself calming. 
Reaching the final unmarked destination, leaving my car and beginning a long treck along a beautiful body of water. Taking in the sights around me, feeling humbled, and small in comparison to the majestic views. I toss my backpack to the side and submerge myself into the waters, letting every heavy feeling weighing me down rinse off in the clear waters. 
It is here, where I feel cleansed again, at home, at peace again, whole. For me, I can't find that in a bottle of whisky, in a cigarette, in buying expensive things. It's here. Always here. -

Before starting any adventure, we love to ground ourselves in meditation and intention so that we are present to our experiences. @indekahta beautifully sings the Gayatri Mantra and rings the Tibetan singing bowl. 
The meaning of the chant is...
Body of all. Mind of all. Spirit of all.
May we meditate of the radiance of the inner light. 
May that self illuminate our thoughts.
Peace Peace Peace be onto all beings of the universe. •

In deep gratitude for the all the Women who showed up for our Women Of Color In Nature hike/bbq event! Our journey was one beauty, and it was a gift to get to know each women individually and collectively. We admire and acknowledge their vulnerability, humbleness, wisdom, hope, strength, creativity, and most especially in ways that they listened, shared and showed up for themselves. It's takes a lot to implement bold acts, get real and raw, and honor ourselves... We witnessed it, and that was empowering! It is a privilege to journey with women who have the same desire in making ourselves better "at heart", and overly powerful to build a community of Women Of Color in the Outdoors. We want to thank every women for rock'n the WOC Event and for helping us diversify our land... An A+: It was a pleasure and a treat to have Gabbi (11 yo girl) join our event! She had so much energy and zest for life, that it was great reminder to let our inner child come out and play! She was full of awesomeness! All Love and Light on this beautiful day!

Rainbow Mountain trail in Peru was the hardest hike of my life. It was a little over 9 miles round trip with 16,500 feet elevation. Luckily I had the most supportive tour guide- she kept me motivated to make it to the top. Let's just say after reaching the top I felt like I could do anything. •••

Tips for this hike: purchase oxygen cans, bring some cocoa leaves, bring plenty of water. Also, wait to get to Cusco to purchase a tour. If you do it online before your trip it's almost 3x more expensive.

The hike from Mooney Falls down to Beaver Falls on the Havasupai Reservation is one of the most fascinating hike we've done. A short 2-mile hike from our campsite led us through the Havasu creek, over tree bridges and through overgrown wild grape fields. We all agreed that the hike itself was the highlight of the trip.

One of our favorite hiking spots close to our hometown is Panther Creek Falls. This 7-mile round trip hike features one of the most magnificent waterfalls in North Georgia. We recommend going when it's warm so you can take full advantage of the swimming hole below the falls.

Happy #wocwednesday everyone!  Loving this post of @resilient.ocean in Joshua Tree who reminds us that there are many ways to express ourselves: words, dance, photos, music, a solo hike, skinny dip, you get the picture! 😁The ability to express ourselves freely is truly liberating!!! How do you express yourself?

"We are all just walking each other home." -Ram Dass==•==Sisters instep with each other on this journey of life. If you are patient, open, aware, compassionate and loving, there is so much to be gained when traveling with a partner, a sister, a best friend. You get the opportunity to practice in a safe space being truly, unapologetically YOU. It definitely isn't always easy because there may be disagreements or compromises. But you care about the other's emotions and well-being, so you listen and try to be more empathetic and understanding.  You tend to each other's needs before they even realize they have a need.  The more your angelic spirit comes through you, the more room there is for your partners angelic spirit to appear. "We are all just walking each other home." - Ram Dass

Don't let anyone tell you that "nature" is pure and simple. It's not. It is an amalgam of human ideas, our projections, our fears and our misdeeds, even though it'll be here long after we're gone. It reflects back what we are, how we see ourselves and how we choose to see others. By connecting with "nature" and critiquing it, we get a better look at what society is really up to. At least, that's what I was thinking while backpacking this weekend... #criticalecology

To me beauty is about being comfortable in our own skin, it's about knowing and accepting who we are and loving every part of us, especially the unkind piece of us. It took a very long time for me to get to this place of acceptance and of loving myself. In this day and age, there is not one fragment of me that I deny. I realize how sacred it is to be authentically who we are, unmasked and without the filter. It is a miracle to feel the rhythm of our heartbeat because there, we find truth. I believe that one of our major task in life is to evolve heart-fully, so that we can better serve our world and share love with people that have not found love for themselves. It is our mission to spread love, strength and hope. Love is the Almighty, Love is Powerful and Love Heals. #WomenOfColorInNature #parksforall #waterislife #diversifyoutdoor #outdoorasian #outdoorpacificislander #philippines #outdoorwomen #theoutbound #melaninbasecamp #optoutside #adventuregap #forceofnature #womenwhoswim  #womenwhoexplore #nature #spiritualpractice #love #truth #selfdiscovery #woman #swimming #elements #lakepowell #page #thepowerofnow #gratitude #om

On this video you'll hear my friend saying, hey if you can swim why not?! Here's the story to that... When I was 4 years old I accidentally dropped one of my slipper in the Philippine Ocean, and I was forcefully pushed out of a Filipino sailboat (banca), by my grandmothers step brother. I can remember him saying, "swim for your life" and get that slipper you dropped. And so, out of panic and fear of drowning, I peddled my legs as fast as I can imagine to survive, making sure my head was above water, and I swam like a frog. It was traumatic and a very torturous experience. From then, my grief always came in waves when I entered any bodies of water. Sometimes it would be calm, and other times it would be overwhelming. I knew that the only way to fight the feeling was to continue and learn how to swim better... Today, I swim freely and boldly in any body of water that I can find! I gain strength when I am in the water because I feel it's healing properties. Every time I'm in water, I can feel my heart pounding, lungs screaming, muscles burning, and sometimes, I still feel love and hate for what had happened. I know that when it feels tough, I'm moving in the right direction, and the process of recovery continues. Where once I was traumatized in water element, I now swim bravely and courageously without fear. This is wealth at its best, and I wouldn't have it any other way...

WOC Wednesday - we are thrilled to feature this beautiful photo of our fellow hiker Erika Antonette Petersen.  We never know what nature might reveal in us.
======•======•======•======•======• Erika: I was grateful to be given the opportunity to explore the beauty of mother nature through challenging secret hikes. Then seeing how much the trek was worth it. I thanked her and the gods for my courage, strength and everything as far as the eye could see. Namaste! •

Two weeks of roaming around the Western Sierras with these strong, inspirational, and talented leaders. Constantly learning so much from the people I'm surrounded by and places I interact with. Thanks @girlventures for another great summer of growth, laughter, new friends and rad views 😍🌲⛺️🌌

Wow, just wow! Bryce Canyon is Elegant!! I'm speechless up here, Mother Nature is so potent, that one can't help but to go deep within, in silence and reflection. I'm grateful to be here, and to be able to explore the trails and this land for the next two days! A purpose driven life. 🙏🏽 #WomenOfColorInNature #parksforall #diversifyoutdoor #outdoorasian #outdoorpacificislander #philippines #nature #outdoorwomen #melaninbasecamp #optoutside #adventuregap #forceofnature #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #trailblazers #hike #utah #brycecanyon #nature #spiritualpractice #hiking #trails #pathfinder #outdoors #love #selfdiscovery #purpose #dowhatmakesyouhappy #namaste

If you feel like quitting, think about why you started. I wanted to quit so many times biking the many brutal hills of SF! This particular photo was taken as I struggled up the hill in the Presidio heading towards the Arguello gate.  I wanted to get off my bike and walk it. But I remembered why I was riding - to train for the Buddhist Biking Pilgrimage which is a 122 mile spiritual journey stopping to meditate at different monasteries.  A pilgrimage is a special undertaking and journeying to a special destination whether it be an external or internal place.  It is about setting an intention and following it through for the sake of of spiritual development. It is about experiencing "oneself in a myriad of different predicaments and mind-states with the prospect of finding the route to that which is truly free from suffering, of finding the path of liberation", as Ajahn Jotindriya puts it. So with this, I put my heart into the ride and conquered the hill. •

Never seen pink sand before, and I must say it's beautiful! The sand is like flour, so fine, soft, feminine, gentle and it had a lovely floral smell to it. I loved it. I was lucky to get a free massage by digging my entire leg and my arms in the sand. It definitely had its healing properties because my body felt different afterwards. In addition, a beautiful little boy, I think was watching me play in the sand. He looked at me and properly introduced himself, and asked if I wanted to play, and so we played, along with his sister, rolling around in the sand, until I had enough because of dizziness. He was very curious and entertaining, I was happy to spend time with both of them. It's always one of beautify when we can let our inner child come out and play! I had a great time 😀#soulmedicine #children #WomenOfColorInNature #parksforall #naturalleaders #bewithnature #trustyourprocess #wildernesslife #mountainlife #liberateyourself #mothernature #diversifyoutdoor #outdoorasian #outdoorpacificislander #philippines #outdoorwomen #melaninbasecamp #optoutside #adventuregap #forceofnature #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #WOCinnature #utah #kanab #sanddunes #innerpeace #innerchild #spirituality #love.

#Labyrinths (not a maze) are paths that represent a journey deep into the center of yourself and back out into world with a broader understanding of who you are and how to relate. There is one circuitous path in and out.  It has long been used as a meditation and prayer tool.  #Cairns represent dignity, balance and alignment. They are also used as trail markers so hikers remain on the path.  Look for signs in your life that tell you whether or not you're on the right path.  There is a sense of peace walking amongst objects full of sacred meaning and intentions. 🙏 •
