I heard that Purple Hill was steep, and it didn't disappoint me. At the start I was so excited to get going, but that didn't last long when the uphill really kicked in. The gradient at times was unbelievable and I was holding onto the grass just to keep balance. All the feelings of doubt went through my head on the way up - why are you doing this to yourself, what's the point in this pain, why do you even want to walk up here. The drive for coffee at the top kept pushing me on. After a false summit, some rock climbing, and a shingle scree (or two) later I finally reached the top, with my legs shaking more than they ever have climbing up a mountain. I went to pull out the camera for a photo, no battery. Pull out my phone, no battery. I thought 'fine' I'll have a coffee and some kai then head down - got my cup, hot water, and aeropress out of my bag, but forgot to pack the coffee - in a right mood now, I spent an hour and a bit sliding down a shingle scree to the car. Turned on the car to charge my phone, took off my shoes (my feet were throbbing), and walked into Lake Pearson to cool them down. What a painful day. If you feel like pushing yourself past what you think you were capable of I highly recommend this hike. . . ---- @ulefone Armour ---- . . #pain #suffering #hike #purplehill #lakepearson #canterburynz #lakeviews #mountainviews #nocoffee #thehappyplace #hiking #hikingshots #otherhalfofnz #exploreourbackyard #exploredownunder #hikingenvy #adventureenthusiast #goneonanadventure #menwhohike #menwhoadventure #peoplewhohike #naturefit #livebravely #mtngeo #airnzshareme #makeithomenz #nz #newzealand
Québec en Automne!! // Quebec City in autumn!! 🍁
This was taken in Waterton. A wee town that stole my heart. Instagram always crushes photos to death so the detail is lost but what you can see here is the skeletons of the trees that are a result of a devastating fire they had. As there was a fair amount of snow it looked like white walker trees or something. Anyways, go see Waterton. A wonderful place with wonderful folks ♥️ #amongthewild #choosemountains #adventureculture #hikingworldwide #peoplewhohike #travelguide #albertaviews #albertalife #canada_gram #traveler #tourism #aroundtheworld #globetrotter #travelinstagram #explorecanada #discovercanada #enjoycanada #travelcanada #astrophotography #stars #alberta #waterton #longexposure #iger #igdaily #instagood #winteriscoming #canada
Yesterday was beautiful

I love 💕 to hike long distances and the feeling when you set up camp after 10-12 hours and 30ish miles of hiking. It would seem obvious that I like running long distances just as much! But, for some reason, I don’t really get the same feeling and motivation for running a marathon compared to hiking a marathon! This weekend I ran my first half marathon in Lake Powell National Park as part of the @vacationraces and it was simply amazing! I guess I can run just as far as I hike as long as the #views are great! . . . 📷: @drholowatyj . #hiking #halfmarathon #horseshoebend #arizona #longdistance #running #picoftheday
Today would have been my Dad’s 69th Birthday. I’m heading south today because he loved Southern Utah. This picture is one I took of myself, but it reminds me of him as we had a similar build. There is something magical about looking up toward the sky in a place that was so close to his heart. His soul was at peace around these red rocks. RIP #moabjim #cancersucks
Spoiler: we didn't die. But it was close. It was so cold in the winter room and I can only image it was at least minus 10 outside, the snow was coming down thick and fast. Our saving grace was the stack of blankets in the room, there must have been around 20. We took every single one of them and piled them on top of us like a fort. It was still cold, but at some point we fell asleep with numb toes. • This was the view from the refuge in the morning. • • • • • #travelbook #travelideas #borntotravel #travelcommunity #travelphotooftheday #instatravelgram #travellerlife #traveladdicts #passportlife #inspiredtravels #travelscape #roamtheworld #topdestinations #awesometravel #hiking #feelthealps #hike #outdoors #hikingadventures #travel #hikingadventures #hikingphotography #peoplewhohike #hikingtime #hikingvibes #hikingtheglobe #mountainvibes #mountainculture #mountaintherapy #mountainhigh
Was searching for apfelstrudel, found her. Not a bad day, but still hungry
Growing up, I traveled to Humboldt County often. I remember finally getting to an age where I dreamt of places I wanted to live when I grew up and my mind always wandered back here. The trip up north became more frequent since close family moved here. • When I met Ian and I drove him here for the first time to come meet some of my family, I remember telling him, “one day, I’m going to live here. I don’t know why but I will.” His answer to that was HELL no. He couldn’t imagine himself living in Humboldt County. • Funny story. Here we are, some odd 5 years later and guess where we live!?😂 #IWon . . . . #travel #traveltogether #borntotravel #love #nature #nomad #explore #adventure #home #humboldtcounty #humco #trinidad #lostcoast #photography #naturephotography #photooftheday #redwoods #ferncanyon #hike #hikecalifornia #peoplewhohike

Rotbäckchen im Tour
Took a break this weekend from being on the go so much lately. I could feel that I was starting to get sick and all around just exhausted, so I cancelled on the hike I had planned and slept in. As much as I wanted to hike, I have gotten better at listening to what my body needs. I'm so glad I did because I'm feeling better and realized that I have a crazy week coming up that requires being rested up.
This hike was no joke...I’m still recovering. One thing I learned from this trip is that we are capable of a lot more than we think. Carrying nearly 40 pounds on my back for 20 miles and doing a total of 40 miles in three days took everything I had. But just like other hard things...you keep pushing and get through it. Whatever you’re working towards, just know you already have everything inside you that you need to succeed. You are stronger than you think 💪🏼🏜 #havasupaifalls #supai #hikingadventures

Is today a coffee day or a Monster Energy day? Maybe both? 😉 What it comes down to is "what helps you personally through the day when you have things on your mind or places to be or new sights to see. Have an amazing adventure wherever you go and don't let the little things get you down. . @monsterenergy . #outdoors #hiking #highaltitude #utah #loveutah #sightseeing #mountainside #beprepared #beautifullife #nature #backcountry #happydays #monster #monsterenergydrink #monsterenergygirls #monsterenergy #hikingpack #lovenature #lovemountains #adventure #newadventures #snow #peoplewhohike #sightseeing #solice #behappy #outdooroutpostus

Beware of the red giants... They hide in the forest, and raise just sometimes their heads above the canopy, to take a look at the intruders, who venture to enter their world.

It's a gorgeous #summer day in #CapeTown , perfect for beach time!
PSA: Please prepare for the desert and don't burn yourself. Wear desert attire and keep hydrated. I saw a lot of "lobster" people walking around yesterday. Although I wasn't feeling 100% yesterday from being sick all week, I felt that seeing a new place and checking something off my bucket list would help me feel better and give me more motivation. I wasn't disappointed. I decided to explore a little piece of Death Valley since the temps weren't so deadly. This was my first stop, Zabriskie Point. I brought plenty of water and wore long sleeves and a hat park ranger style. I did need to be careful and became a little ill later after a short hike, but I relaxed in the air conditioning while drinking coconut water and felt better. It's not the long birthday weekend trip I had planned, but it made me happy. I wound up playing games with family and friends since I was home sick which I really loved, and I saw an amazing new place. I was a happy birthday girl.

I first heard of the Ice Age Trail maybe 5-6 years ago...I couldn’t believe we had a National Scenic Trail like the Appalachian and the Pacific Crest right inside of this state that I used to find oh so “boring”. The Ice Age Trail has opened by eyes over the last few years and made me realize how rad this lil midwestern state is. It’s also helped me realize that I’m capable of doing things I didn’t think I could or would ever do. Such as backpacking. I think I kinda love backpacking. It kicks my ass. Seriously I’m in a lot of pain today from my second ever weekend backpacking trip and I’m walking like I’m 85 years old and I love it. I also love that backpacking takes you through landscapes you’d never ever see if you weren’t on the trail for miles. It also forces you to be outside in conditions that you’d probably rather be inside for if you weren’t backpacking, and you realize it’s actually kinda fun to hike in sideways sleet and snow and it makes you laugh. I also love that I was trembling in my sleeping bag Saturday night, not because it was 25 degrees, but because there was a pack of coyotes howling at each other right by our site. Seriously, they were RIGHT THERE. It spooked me to my core and made me feel so alive, I’ll never forget that. Thanks for these amazing experiences, IAT. You’re helping me love life.
Chasing waterfalls in Morocco . I hiked to this waterfall 4 years ago and I liked it so much, I came back to do it again
"Stare Longingly at Walls and Off of Cliffs: Scholars have been practicing this approach for millennia. It works best when your particular brand of upset is more despondent than angry. When your workday becomes so overwhelming that you can’t even breathe, many of our country’s best minds find it helpful to stare blankly at the nearest wall with the kind of envy for its blank complacency that might make you melt right into it. Don’t be afraid to freak out your coworkers by coopting an empty conference room for hours at a time to truly master this technique. If you’re particularly outdoorsy or have the luxury of mountains right in your backyard, staring longingly into the void of a 1,000 foot drop off a cliff can achieve the same effect.” . My latest blog post is a handy list of tools and life hacks for those of us who are fighting the urge to grow out our hair, walk into the woods, and never return again. The way this election cycle is going, we all need them. Badly.

Last night I completed Rim2Rim2Rim! 🙌 I actually had a zero day on Thursday as I had to test my luck at the Backcountry permit office for campsites - and I was granted the exact itinerary I wanted! I got Cottonwood Campground for 2 nights. As a contingency plan, I later went back to the office later that afternoon to see if there was an available site at Bright Angel Campgrounds for a 3rd night in case I needed it, and I got that granted as well - but didn't end up using it. Active hike days were Friday to Sunday. I'll elaborate more on my experience later, but just wanted to shoot out this update since I've been getting flooded with DMs & text messages. I'll be in Flagstaff the next few days and I'm currently muscle rolling every part of my body. Today will be an active rest day, and hopefully tomorrow I can cross another thing off my bucket list! 🤞 • #RimToRimToRim #amongthewild #choosemountains #switchbackchicks #trekkingtoes #gwh #mtnchicks #girlswhohike #hikingadventures #outdoorbella #adventurevisuals #outsideproject #outside_project #awakethesoul #wander #choosemountains #peoplewhoadventure #peoplewhohike #adventureisoutthere #exploreoutdoors #optoutside #forceofnature #outdoors #mountainlovers #earthpix #intonature #nature #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #hikelife

That feeling when you're halfway there and you start to see the path towards the top.
I almost didn’t go on this backpacking trip. I had other weekend plans when this opportunity presented itself. With encouragement from my husband, kids, sister and this amazing crew, I accepted. Scared and unsure, I accepted. Off to #REI I went to complete my backpacking gear and I was off. #acceptthechallenge . . #getoutside #optoutside #52hikechallenge #neverstopexploring #choosemountains #hiking #womenwhohike #lifeofadventure #forceofnature #dowhatyoulove #hikingadventures #keepitwild #aginggracefully #hikingfun #staywild #mountaingirl #hikecalifornia #peoplewhohike #johnmuirwilderness #yourestrongerthanyouthink
