I can’t seem shake this experience. At the time it just seemed like another cool adventure. Good people, stunning scenery, and nights spent under the stars. Still, I didn’t realize how fondly I would look back on the week we spent packrafting around Lake Powell. Rather than fade with time, the memories only seem to get more vivid. And I like that. Makes me think there might be something to be said for disconnecting every once in awhile. For allowing ourselves to silence outside distractions, to bask in the present. 😌

Spent the last few days with an ever changing horizon, under an endless popcorn sky. I’m back on the road again! I don’t know exactly where this trip will take me, but I love waking up every day excited to see what this crazy beautiful world will show me next. Yesterday’s sunrise was a show stopper! 😍

I spent the last few weeks at home in Washington watching winter slowly melt into spring. I used the time at home to explore new trails that I’d often overlooked during the summer months. It was an amazing experience, and one I want to share with you in my latest BLOG POST: “Six Stunning Spring Hikes in Washington.”

A wise human once said, “No one will protect what they don’t care about, and no one will care about what they have never experienced.” The world is an endlessly beautiful place, and I truly hope that you are able to get out and experience some spring magic this season - wherever you happen to be based. 🌼 Life is about relationships. And few are more important than our connection to the natural world. -

Last summer a long time dream of mine came true - I got to hike the Tour Du Mont Blanc (TMB) with my family. The classic trail circumnavigates Mount Blanc, the highest peak in Western Europe. Passing through France, Italy, and Switzerland. My NEW BLOG POST about the experience is now up!

There were ups and downs—mostly a lot of up—and it was hands down one of the most memorable and rewarding trips we’ve ever taken as a family. The long stretches of trail brought us closer together in that special way only shared challenges and fresh air can. I learned a lot on the TMB about myself, the importance of carving out quality time with the people you love, and the joy that comes with introducing a new generation to the outdoors. This is a special blog to me, and I really hope you enjoy it! ☺️💙✌️

When you grow up in the Pacific Northwest, like I did, you learn pretty early on that if you wait for good weather to get outside, you’ll be waiting for a VERY long time. And if you’re anything like me, staying inside for weeks at a time is not an option! I rely on the outdoors to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, to recharge, and find inspiration. So, having gear that allows me to get out—rain or shine—is key to my happiness! @Marmot’s PreCip Eco rain jackets allow me to get out and enjoy adventure even in the rain. I can bring this lightweight layer with me wherever I go, and that means I never have to wait on the weather. :) Plus, it’s made of 100% recyclable materials! Click link in my bio to get 25% off @marmot 's site from now until 5/27. #ad #WeAreMarmot #rainon

Swinging, wading, and diving into the new week with a splash! 💦 I know Mondays get a bad rap, but I like the idea of new beginnings. So here’s to a fresh week! Happy Monday!! ☺️💙

I did my first solo backpacking trip down to these falls years ago. I don’t have any photos from that trip, but that’s okay, I don’t need any - I remember it like it was yesterday. I was coming off three days of wandering through slot canyons in Southern Utah with my brother. We had planned on a quick overnight, but as darkness approached the first day it became clear we were hopelessly lost. Three days later we hadn’t seen another human, we were out of food, miserably sunburned, and my feet were so torn up they were unrecognizable. But that’s a story for a different time! A couple days later, physically and emotionally exhausted, I hobbled my way down to Havasupai Falls. Alone in my tent that night, I broke down. I wasn’t sure that I was going to be able to hike back out to the trail head the next morning. My feet were trashed. Here’s the thing, I’m a chronic bad decision maker. It’s not that I can’t tell the difference between a good idea and a bad one. But for some reason the bad decision is always more appealing, and I’m drawn to it like a moth to a flame. Havasupai was one of those flames. I made it out... but it wasn’t pretty. I learned a lot of lessons that trip, about perseverance, preparedness, the power of mind over matter. About myself.  And that’s the thing about bad decisions... you always learn something. So maybe they aren’t all that bad after all. ☺️

Some people believe that Sedona is the “heart chakra of the planet.” I’m not going to pretend to know what that means. BUT it’s pretty clear to see why this particular spot is thought to exude female energy! People come from all over to worship feminine beauty and the power to create life. So I figured it was perfect for Mother’s Day! Hope all you mammas out there have a good one! You are loved and appreciated. 💙

Yesterday I asked you guys to tell me what you were up to. What you were doing with your day. With your life. And I was blown away by your responses! I can honestly say that I learned something from each of you - whether you were just waking up, or finishing a long day at work. It’s so easy to get caught up in our own little worlds, and I can’t thank you enough for pulling me outside of mine and sharing a little piece of yours! You are amazing! And it made my day. ☺️ if you didn’t get a chance to share, I’d still love to hear about what you do. What your day looks like.  What makes you tick. I’m endlessly curious!

I didn’t sleep last night. I laid awake watching as the hours ticked by trying to think of a caption for this mornings post. But of course I was too tired to really come up with anything substantive. Something I haven’t written about before. Something you haven’t read a million times. It’s just a silly Instagram caption... I have no idea why I’d let myself lose sleep 💤 over it... 🤦🏻‍♀️. But I guess now you know a little bit more about my personality! Here’s one more thing about me - I love Florida. Never expected to. It’s about as different from where I grew up as you can get without leaving the US. But look at these springs! Can you blame me!? 💦
