Ending 12 days floating the Grand Canyon with a helicopter out. Great trip with OARS. #100hoursunplugged @100hoursunplugged #helicopter #arizona #helicopterride #grandcanyon #coloradoriver #oars
Witnessing our five year old climb 1200 feet on a 6km hike to camp at the bottom of a glacier was such a highlight of our summer so far!⠀ ▫️⠀ Was this out of my comfort zone as a mama? For sure! With both my husband and I carrying packs I prayed our son wouldn't need too many "big huggies" on the way up to our campsite. But, as always, this little guy amazed me - he put one foot in front of the other, rock hopping, root skipping, bird spotting and singing when we needed a little distraction.⠀ ▫️⠀ As a mother, I strive to ensure that my son’s memories take him back to the wild places we spent together, to the campfires we laughed around and the endless nights we spent sleeping under starry skies.⠀ ▫️⠀ So, I'll keep pushing past my fears and worries and follow my son's lead, putting one foot in front of the other to see where life's adventures lead us. 💚 #raisedgood #100HoursUnplugged
Isn't this the truth?! Kids thrive with one on one attention. They can tell the difference when we are truly present compared to when we're are physically present but mentally distracted. And so do we...I feel myself so much more relaxed when I'm chatting with my husband if our phones are not invited to the conversation.⠀ ▫️⠀ Our culture is conditioning us to believe that distraction is normal. I'm far from immune - I often find myself scrolling too much and losing touch with who I'm with.⠀ ▫️⠀ And that's why I was thrilled when OARS reached out to me asking to share their movement to inspire families to go offline and get outside together. Getting outside and being immersed in nature brings out the best in all of us! Mother Nature reconnects us to what is most important - the incredible people we're fortunate enough to share our lives with.⠀ ▫️⠀ In our pre-parent days our outdoor activities looked a little different! We rafted the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon and slept under the stars. We hiked and camped in Alaska and got up close and personal with grizzly bears in Katmai National Park. We kayaked the Baja peninsula and were honoured with the presence of blue whales.⠀ ▫️⠀ But although our adventures may look a little different with little kids in the mix, I wouldn't trade it for anything Seeing the world through my son's eyes and witnessing how much more capable he is than I sometimes realize as a mother always leaves me craving more. And it gives us the gift of T-I-M-E! I am also beyond excited that our little guy is now at an age where we can join OARS on a watery adventure in the not to distant future!⠀ ▫️⠀ So, if you'd like to follow along with OARS, make the commitment to go off the grid for #100HoursUnplugged before Labor Day and go in the draw to win an unplugged adventure for two check out @oars_rafting to learn more and then follow link in bio at @100HoursUnplugged. #raisedgood
August 14th - 1m - Ute Valley Piñon Ridge. So proud of this little guy. He walked one mile on his own today!! Huge landmark for my tiny hiker 💙👟🏔
Hours 48-52 of #100hoursunplugged . Horseback through Stolle Meadows.
Our fig tree died back to the ground after the brutal winter this past year, but luckily our neighbor’s was spared and he told us we could pick them whenever we want. Piper has a serious obsession and asks me to go out just about every morning. I think it’s about time for me to bring back the cheesecake I made last year, with salted honey and figs on top. Whatcha think?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #cameramama #simplychildren #livethelittlethings #magicofchildhood #simplifychildhood #childhoodmemories #childhoodeveryday #lifewellcaptured #documentyourdays #flashesofdelight #memoirsofmotherhood #theeverymother #uniteinmotherhood #lastdaysofsummer #100hoursunplugged

This night was one of my life’s highlights... Sharing sacred wild places with my family makes me so happy! ❤️🌄
What to do when there’s a forest fire in a National Park? Eat ice cream, watch, and pray it doesn’t come to our side of the lake🍦🔥 • • • #glaciernationalpark #glaciernps #howeridge #fire #forestfire #water #glacier #lakemcdonald #100hoursunplugged #optoutside #rei #adventure #nationalpark #explore #findyourpark #acmnp18 #montana #photography #nationalparkphotography
A great week. We road our bikes and played water volleyball. Up to 89hrs #100HoursUnplugged @100hoursunplugged
The guides make the river trip even more memorable telling us nature facts and legends of storied explorers who've floated before us in Idaho's rugged Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Pictured here is Ashley Brown manning her boat. On this Middle Fork of the Salmon trip, she's the @oars_rafting trip leader. This brief photo album notes guide style, including river creature fashions donned for dinner, silver charms, personalized @chacofootwear and a single painted toenail...a pirate tradition adopted by river guides. Some say it's superstitious belief that inspires a painted digit which supposedly bestows good luck and protects the boatman from flipping his or her raft. #100HoursUnplugged  #5000MilesofWild   #familytravel  @americanrivers @visitidaho @visittheusa
August 11 - 1.2m - Eleven Mile Canyon Spillway Overlook. This trail was short but amazing. Not only was the view fantastic, the construction of the trail was a work of art. It was made of flat stone stairs, so well fit into their landscape you could often only find the proper trail by following the cairns. #cairns
Summer, please never end!
Where is your favorite LOCAL spot, in your hometown? Besides our Columbus Georgia Whitewater, our family enjoys Treadstone . . . Loving that we still have many places, for at home adventures, here in @amazingcolumbusga . Packing and moving, to a new-to-us home, has our traveling at a standstill. Thankful for our local river, parks, and climbing gym for places to go and have some fun, amidst all the work. #lovewherewelive #amazingcolumbus #workhardhavefun #climbinggym #100hoursunplugged #kidsclimbing #treadstoneclimbing #hesfive #allsmiles #letsgohargroveadventuring2018 #travelawaits #localfun #familyandkidsga

Finally made time to enjoy an old fashioned picnic. ❤️ #picnic #nature #qualitytime #100hoursunplugged
A two weeks ago we were rigging the boats (well the group was - I was likely standing around like a gaper 😂).

Grandeur Peak! Gorgeous hike, great company, and a swarm of flying ants at the top. Oh well, can't let something like inhaling a few bugs dampen the whole trip. I would do this one again. #hikethewasatch #hikethewasatchfront #hiking #womenwhohikeutah #couchtosummit2018 #girlswhohikeut #100hoursunplugged #lifeelevatedutah #thisisministering
The 4,000-pound sweep boat always leaves camp first loaded with gear and helmed by expert boatman like our @oars_rafting crew's sweep boat captain Ned Perry. Solo, he navigates the oar-rigged, 26-foot long boat through Class IV and stakes out the evening's campsite long before the rafters arrive. Sweep boatmen carry on a rich American tradition on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Their role dates back to the 1870s when flat-bottomed sweep boats were called scows, made of wood, and carried mining supplies down this Idaho river in today's protected Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. It was called "River of No Return" because the sweep boats couldn't return upstream. So the boatmen dismantled their wooden boats for lumber once arriving in camp. When we paddle into our camp there will be a cackling campfire Ned builds to greet us. #sweepboat #MiddleForkofSalmonRiver #frankchurchwilderness #100HoursUnplugged #5000MilesofWild #river #salmonriver #dories #kayaking #adventure #familytravel #kayak @americanrivers @visitidaho @visittheusa @oars_rafting

Before having kids, I totally thought having a little one would cramp my thirst for adventure +my active lifestyle. I mean how in the heck was I still gonna hike to bad ass views + waterfalls with a kid at my side? • Insert foot in my mouth... I could not have been more wrong. • Being a mom has actually revitalized my love for the outdoors, forced me to move a little slower, explore more + take time to notice the little things (like mushrooms, different types of moss or wild blueberries that before I would have just rushed past). • All of sudden the world 🌎 looks so much different when I'm hiking with a toddler. Suddenly the mountains ⛰ are wayyyyy taller, I notice a lot more beautiful plants 🌱 + bugs 🐜 and I hear sounds that I never would have heard before . • Just this week when we were out hiking admiring this view, and one of the kids said, "look at the bird mommy" as we were looking out into the horizon. (I was too busy noticing the view looking past the beautiful bird 🦅 soaring below us). • God works in wonderful ways ❤️. Being a mom is amazing + it has forced me to slow down and enjoy little things that I normally wouldn't have noticed. I mean, what is better than daily uninterrupted, 1 on 1 time with your child... out in nature? Let me answer that for you... there isn't anything. This is THE BEST! • Share with us, what has you're child showed you recently that you otherwise would have walked past? • • • #keepitwild #childhoodunplugged #getoutandplay #playinnature #adventure calling #skinsistersrf #adventurefamily #childrenofmountains #mountainfamily #mountainkid #switchbackchics #carolinesdailyadventures #allaboutwomen #raisingtoddlers #hikingwithkids #viewsforever #motherswhohike #naturalbeauty #outsideeveryday #nevertooyoungtohike #getoutandplay #nursesofinstragram #workhardmomharder #100hoursunplugged #aginggracefully #workingmomlife #workhardhikeharder #natureforlife #appreciatetheoutdoors #momlifebestlife
Monday’s don’t suck, it’s your job that does. • Think outside the box from your typical 8-5. There are other options out there. You’re not trapped, you’ve just not been open minded. • So far today, I’ve gotten a good burn in by hiking to a water fall + worked. • I’m not saying my job is the best job, but it’s fun, lucrative + I’ve got some serious time freedom. • Life shouldn’t be all about work. When you’re ready to start looking forward to Mondays + start having your own time freedom, I’m ready to chat. • • • #beopenminded #happypeoplehike #skinsistersrf #mtnchicks #girlswhohike #workhardloveharder #boonelife #828isgreat #boonenc #mountainmama #hikingadventures #100hoursunplugged #badasshikingwomen #idhikethat #likeamountaingirl #sheexplores #takethedirtroad #playinnature #everydayactive #naturescalling #hikingculture #carolinesdailyadventures #allaboutwomen #raiseyourkidsoutdoors #ncwaterfalls #mondaysdontsuck #workhardmomhard #wokingmama #toddlermom #getyourkidsoutside
