Thank you @sawyerproducts
for making this filter! I drink a TON of water...especially while out hiking. My little dude loves to stay hydrated because of you too (he calls it “the river cup”) I am forever grateful to not carry a gallon jug around and still be able keep my son and I both super hydrated with cool mountain streams and know it’s safe. And no waste!
For the better part of the last decade I have spent the days before my birthday backpacking. It has always given me a chance to reflect on the previous 365 days and to remember that every single time I look back I could have never imagined the journey through life would bring me to where I am each and every time.
Today is my last day of being 26. I am driving back to work to return to reality - and it's hard. This was the greatest year of my life, but also the hardest. One year ago I was standing on the summit of Lassen Peak in California and I thought I had it all figured out. I didnt. I still dont. But in the year that followed I discovered love, I discovered true friendship, I rediscovered my passion for writing, and I realized that the best things in life are never planned for - they just happen - and exactly when they need to.
I have spent the past week on a spiritual quest that was intended to clear some fog of some of the aspects of all this that I dont understand. And as much fog was lifted - I let a lot of it come back in, because having it all figured out just isn't that meaningful. We need to keep questioning things - we need to keep hope in our lives - we need to explore and wonder and discover. I've come a long way, but there are so many miles to hike still. There will always be another trail to follow - an answer to search for - a faith to follow and to test.
I've said it before - but now it means more than it ever has before: "I dont know what's next, but that is the best part." Here is to 27. Another year of chasing happiness. Another year of mountains, rivers, and the cold beer that follows. Another year of giving it my all, because in everything there is always a shot at a silver living.

This kid just begs to go outside! I wonder where he gets that from? 🤷🏼♀️
Pawsing for a moment to set goals can be ruff, but it's fur the best. If you don't dog yourself every now and then, life gets tail. 🐶📷#Flowfold

Day 3? ✨ Nobo sobo flipfloping stealth-site tramily... BOOM 😎.
With the hot weather in the valley this week, wet-wading has been a great way to cool off and catch a few fish.

and the NEW Rebel Fanny Pack. From trail runs to stashing lens caps, the Rebel keeps little essentials easily within reach. Rock it in the front, back, or as a sling! Swipe and tap to learn more! Photos by @cfphotography
Dust off your mood rings and pop in that *NSYNC disk, the Rebel Fanny Pack is here and here to stay! We got tired of going through our backpacks to find a few yet frequently used items, so we drew inspiration from the 90s style we loved, modernized it with a splash of color, and polished it with premium lightweight 400d woven nylon with a Durable Water Repellent finish. From carrying dog treats to keeping track of passports, never misplace your everyday essentials again.
There is an intermediary realm between the purely sensory and the purely spiritual. It’s called the imaginal, and it’s where we all live
Teaching him the lay of the land, anyone think it’ll stick?
The face of a guide holds the tale of 1000 shots with 1000 possible outcomes for each. The hardest lessons learned from failure, eventually lead to the inevitable connection, with a forked tail in hand.

The sweet satisfaction of dragging the other half on a “short” 3 mile hike with no trout waters in sight 😁 ... . ..and only a 593ft elevation climb 💁🏼♀️

What does it mean to be present? From Flowfold ambassador @gal_onthego
: “I’ve noticed that I don’t want to just watch the sun rise, I want myself to rise with it. I see the bright blues, yellows, oranges, and purples but need to look closer to find the blends and shades in between. I count the water ripples but focus on the picture each stroke begins to paint. I feel the crisp wind moving around my body, so I gently move with it. Recently I’ve become more aware of my daily life and encourage everything to slow down. I’ve found the sunrise help to start this path of presence. Although it doesn’t allow me to forget yesterday, it encourages me to do it today, whatever “it” may be. It allows me to recognize what once went unnoticed and clarify that “I am here, I am now.”
The story of the @Flowfold
Zip Porter Limited: We needed an all day, everyday, for life tote. Something that could handle the sand and salt of countless adventures. Our goal was to re-design a classic yet versatile bag to handle anything from a wetsuit to work gear. Made from ultralight materials with cast iron strength, the #Flowfold
Zip Porter is now a staple of ours that has withstood years of abuse from the elements to earn its reputation as the Ultimate Tote Bag. Tap the photo to learn more! Photo by #Flowfold

“Maybe you weren't born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but like every American, you carry a deed to 635 million acres of public lands. That's right. Even if you don't own a house or the latest computer on the market, you own Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and many other natural treasures.” - John Garamendi
Woohoo, it’s Outdoor Retailer week! If you’re in Denver come on down to the Flowfold booth for a happy hour and sweet deals. Swipe for details 🍻
"They say you forget your troubles on a trout stream, but that's not quite it. What happens is that you begin to see where your troubles fit into the grand scheme of things, and suddenly they're just not such a big deal anymore." #johngierach #flyfishing #maine #salmon #fishme #findyourpause
