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

I came across my first wolf in the wild over 10 years ago and they've always held a special place in my heart. Introducing Nova, a high content Artic wolfdog I recently had the pleasure of meeting. #wolfdog #wolf #travel #hiking

There was some initial confusion but I would like to say that Apollo, Atlas and I are safe from Hurricane Harvey. Our apartment has not received any flood damage but many friends, family and places I call home have been affected by this hurricane. Please consider donating emergency supplies and relief aid to help those in need. #hurricaneharvey #houston #prayforhouston

My parents said I should look into a work out partner...not sure if this is what they meant, but Atlas sure helps me with weight lifting! #hiking #puppy #pupsofinstagram #optoutside
