Spent the last few days running around the desert; gotta keep moving to stay warm on those 20° mornings.
It’s that time of year in Alaska where a 10 A.M. sunrise can quickly turn into 3 P.M. sunset 🌅😎🌄😎🌅
Remember to dream your dreams with your eyes closed, but live your dreams with your eyes wide open. ⚡️
Ready for sleep or for the weekend? 😝
Yesterday was a very special day for me. Josh and I did our first bit of back country skiing!! Thimble Peak in Kirkwood will forever hold a special place in my heart.
We’ve always been a bit of adventure junkies, white water rafting the Zambezi river, Devils Pool in Zimbabwe, we love tree skiing, etc. But there’s something about looking down steep pitches that’s always unnerved me. Physically I know I can tackle it. But I have this unfounded anxiety that stems from not being able to feel my boundaries when staring down a steep sheet of complete whiteness - and like if I fall, I may just never stop tumbling down the mountain. (May just be me 😅)
BUT with a lot of deep breaths and my good luck charm - singing Brittney Spears “Hit Me Baby One More time” - on repeat in my head, (idk it calms me down 😂) I told those anxieties that they weren’t going to make my decisions for me. And just like I knew it would be... IT WAS AWESOME!! So so so fun being able to make our own lines!!!! And what an accomplished feeling you have at the end.
I wish it was as simple as tackling your anxieties once and them forever disappearing - but it’s a daily process of faith and choosing your courage over those fears that creep into your mind. Day by day, little by little.
So cheers to many more of these off piste adventures in the future, Brittney Spears for saving me more than once, and continuing to push ourselves mentally and physically to be better athletes and skiers.
Against the winds and cold. All for that feeling at the top.. 🌬

When I started Instagram earlier this year I used to care about likes, followers, and number of engagements I got out of my posts. I wanted my work to be seen and of course, attention to be drawn to myself. I’ve gone through a period of growth where I’ve realized what little importance all of that was. I’ve now reverted my focus to using this platform as a simple, visual blog. Social media is a great tool for artists to share their work; sometimes we get caught up in superficial things like numbers and lose focus of what’s in front of us. Look not at what everyone else is doing, look forward.
Just... another bridge on this awesome family hike😊💚

“Being in nature I am able to appreciate and live in the present instead of worrying about the next item on my very long to-do list. I give myself the time to enjoy staring at the Milky Way, follow animal tracks, or throw another log onto the fire. I didn’t discover my love of the outdoors until I was in my mid-20’s. Both of my amazing parents are immigrants who have always worked so hard to just make ends meet that they did not have the time or opportunities to slow down, stop working and stare at the stars. I am a proud first generation Chinese-American woman with colored hair, who rock climbs and owns very dusty hiking boots.” -Christina / @outsidegoth

A few of my favorite travel shots from around Interlaken. For the rest of the year I'll be posting more albums of some of my favorite trips from 2018.
We are all wanderers on this earth, our hearts full of wonder and our souls deep with dreams 🧡🌵☀️🗺✨😌
Although these cacti may look so wonderfully dreamy, they can become your worst nightmare if stung by one...and guess who got stung by one? Yup...🤦🏻♂️😭

Every place we visit, Lexa and I try to do three things: go on a hike, ride a bike, and eat good food. We have a pretty good track record.
Sunrise drive around Cathedral Valley.
See ya later, socal 👋🏻 Missing your warmth already
