Absolutely love this sign. Went on a great trail run this morning. There’s nothin’ like a jog through the woods. Remember to take some time, go outside & enjoy nature.
It’s time for white color ❄️ Is there a snow in your city? #snow #winter #snowyday

Swipe >>> für den 9. Buchstaben 😉 . Die Ringelrobbe ist die am häufigsten in der Arktis vorkommende Robbenart. Ihren Namen hat sie von ihrer Fellzeichnung, welche aus hellen Ringen auf dunklem Grund besteht. Ringelrobben bilden keine Kolonien, sondern leben meist als Einzelgänger. Gelegentlich ziehen sie auch in losen Gruppen durchs Meer. Sie sind perfekt an ein ganzjähriges Leben im Eismeer angepasst, mit den Krallen an ihren Vorderflossen können sie Eislöcher selbst dann noch frei halten, wenn das umliegende Eis mehr als 2m dick ist. Normalerweise bleiben die Robben etwa 2 bis 5 Minuten unter Wasser, können aber zur Not bis zu 45min aushalten ohne Luft zu holen. Dafür sorgt die hohe Anzahl an roten Blutkörperchen, sowie die Fähigkeit den Blutkreislauf anzupassen und die Herzfrequenz auf 10-20 Schläge die Minute zu senken. . . . #adventskalender #advent #ringelrobbe #ringedseal #weihnachten #xmas #christmas #dezember #december #winter #arktis #eismeer #seal #raubtier #alaska #christbaumkugel #wunderdernatur #natureswonders #naturforscher #kidlit #childrensbook #kinderillustration #kinderbuchillustration #illustratorsofinstagram #kidlitart #creative_animalart #wissenistmacht #animalillustration #wildlifeart #pinselpanda

After all of today’s events, I just wanted to go out for a walk to gather my thoughts. 🤯 —————— From time to time I like to overview my progress and see where I am at, what mistakes I made and what can I do to improve myself. ✌🏻📈 —————— I have found out that having something that you enjoy doing not only helps you make the most out of your freetime, but also helps you improve at work, it goes on an subconcious level. It makes you want more. 😶🤭 —————— P.S. You can check out my new youtube video.

Man on the cold sweat... 28 days - That's the duration of the Basic Mountaineering Course at HMI (Himalayan Mountaineering Institute). You get to climb the heights and explore the depths of the most difficult mountain terrains deep within the highest range in the world. It will break you, everytime, before you choose to get back up as there are world to be explored.

“Little by little, little becomes a lot.” ~Lorenzo Leo . Our daily choices, even in small increments, add up to have large effects. Little by little, over the course of five months, I paddled thousands of kilometres and saw amazing shoreline on my Great Lakes Kayak Exploration. My consumerism habits have changed dramatically too. I love the “hunt” when “thrifting” ( shopping in second hand stores). Almost my entire wardrobe was acquired at the thrift store. Everything in this photo that I am wearing was purchased second hand, including my almost new Keen hiking boots and down vest. By buying second hand, I feel good about not participating in potentially unethical practises for acquiring down and leather. I am keeping products out of landfill sites and putting them to good use. Little choices over time do indeed add up to large effects. Every choice matters. Happy Monday! 📸 @kelownaguy . #kayakwendy #bcisbeautiful #explorebc #explorecanada #natureswonders #naturelove #magicnature #natureisamazing #lifeisajourney #thankyounature #lifeisbeautiful #outdoorwoman #womenwhoexplore #spreadlove #handpickedkelowna #okanaganlifestyle #explorekelowna #kelownanow #kelownaviews #hellobc #exploreokanagan #kelowna #natureheals #lovelife #ownit #bewild #lifeofadventure #healthychoices #wondermore #britishcolumbia

Natures wonders. Can u see the octopus as it carefully makes it way. Concealing it self now and then by changing its colour to camouflage as a rock. #natureswonders #maldives #bandosislandresort #octopus
“We can never have enough of nature.” ~Henry David Thoreau . Miraculously, getting outside in nature instantly uplifts me and makes me feel good! I can simply never get enough of nature! It inspires. It heals. It amazes me. It surprises me. It fills me. It nurtures and nourishes me. There is nothing like it! This is Silver Star ski resort east of Vernon, BC. . #kayakwendy #bcisbeautiful #explorebc #explorecanada #natureswonders #naturelove #magicnature #natureisamazing #lifeisajourney #thankyounature #lifeisbeautiful #outdoorwoman #womenwhoexplore #spreadlove #handpickedkelowna #okanaganlifestyle #explorekelowna #kelownanow #kelownaviews #hellobc #exploreokanagan #kelowna #natureheals #lovelife #ownit #bewild #lifeofadventure #hikebc #wondermore #britishcolumbia
Im so ready for christmas 🎅 👏 #photo #photos #nature #natureswonders #christmas #christmastree
Going back to last Monday when the housework was complete, all bar one load of washing which was still tumbling around and Beau was sound asleep. The sun was shining and our new plants that we had dug into the earth were in desperate need of a drink. I am no Gardner, my thumbs are missing that green tinge, although I do like to try my best. I find it so relaxing and my mind wanders as I potter about out in the fresh air tending to our somewhat of a “rustic” garden. It was just as I had yanked, with great force, two grassy plants from the ground that I heard it; the sweetest little sound. Not entirely sure where it was coming from I dropped my shovel and allowed my ears to guide me. I found myself at the back of our carport, where Ben keeps piles of timber, wire and goodness knows what else! An old pallet leaning against the fence and my very neglected bicycle in front of that. A blackbird darted out from behind and I found myself edging closer to the pallet. I had seen her foraging around in our garden on quite a number of occasions, her little tail flicking this way and that as she bounced across the yard. I had thought that she must have found a place to house her little babies somewhere close by. As I reached the pallet, there they were, 3 little baby birds tucked up tight. Their little eyes not even open to the world yet. It was then that my own little baby woke. As I picked him up from his cot, his warm, soft skin against my cheek I told him about the babies I had just seen. We quietly made our way over to them, allowing Mama birdie the space she needed before darting off once again. As we peered in through the gaps I knew that he had seen them for a little smile came across his face. A soft little sigh followed. Not wanting to overstay our welcome we “ta-ta’d” the babies and made our way inside. My heart melted as Beau continued to point his little finger out towards them, softly repeating “babies, babies, babies.” Nature is a magical thing and I so look forward to exploring it even more through the eyes of a child.

It’s always nice to have a friend to lean on after a long day of foraging. I’m grateful for all the friends I’ve leaned on over the course of the last couple years! You know who you are and I couldn’t have completed my graduate studies without your support.

Since it’s SO cold here in the Netherlands, I’m trying to keep myself warm by looking at photos and videos from our vacation in Hawaii. ⁣ ⁣ Behold. The beautiful Napali Coastline of the island of Kauai. As you can see, I’m pointing the finger to the hubs. And I keep telling myself: “please lean to the left you do not want to fall down. I repeat. You DO NOT want to fall down” 😂😂⁣ ⁣ I could seriously hike the islands all day every day! 💙🌺
Trail. Like over the edge right down to the very bottom of the Grand Canyon trail. Woo hoo! No safety guards. Lots of snow and ice. Had a blast. Had to change plans from the bright angel trail to the rim trail we started on and slipped! as no crampons.

Did you know that iguanas have a third eye?! 👀👁️ Also known as a parietal eye, it is used to alert iguanas of aerial threats. Unlike the other two, the third eye is quite simple in its physiology and can only detect changes in light and darkness. But that is more than enough to evade predators! Cool! 🦎
Wake up... to this every morning. Base camp at Chowri Khang. 28 days - That's the duration of the Basic Mountaineering Course at HMI (Himalayan Mountaineering Institute). You get to climb the heights and explore the depths of the most difficult mountain terrains deep within the highest range in the world. It will break you, everytime, before you choose to get back up as there are new worlds to be explored.

Swipe >>> für den 8. Buchstaben 😉 . Zur Gattung der Schneehühner werden drei Arten gezählt, von denen das Moorschneehuhn und das Alpenschneehuhn am weitesten verbreitet sind. Diese beiden Arten findet man in Nordamerika und Eurasien. Das Weißschwanz-Schneehuhn ist mit 31-34 cm Körperlänge der kleinste Vertreter und kommt nur in Alaska, British Columbia und den Rocky Mountains vor. Schneehühner sind mit ihren kurzen Schwänzen allgemein sehr plump gebaut. Alpenschneehühner mausern dreimal jährlich und passen sich dabei der jeweiligen Umgebung an. Während sie im Winter fast komplett weiß sind wird die Oberseite mit der Frühjahrsmauser braun gesprenkelt. Im Herbst sind dann nur noch die Handschwingen weiß gefärbt. Die Hühner verlassen sich so sehr auf diese Tarnung, dass sie, wenn Wanderer sich nähern, so lange reglos sitzen bleiben, bis man fast auf sie tritt. . . . #adventskalender #advent #schneehuhn #lagopus #weihnachten #xmas #christmas #dezember #december #winter #arktis #ptarmigan #chicken #birdsofinstagram #alaska #mistletoe #mistelzweig #wunderdernatur #natureswonders #naturforscher #kidlit #childrensbook #kinderillustration #kinderbuchillustration #illustratorsofinstagram #creative_animalart #wissenistmacht #animalillustration #wildlifeart #pinselpanda
