That Friday feeling! Who’s ready to adventure somewhere this weekend? 💕🏔
Quick session with @jens_dean
before heading to Scotland 🏴 in the van for the weekend 😄🏔🚐 Happy to flash a handful of the v5-v7 and v3-v5 set 👊🏻 Psyched!!
I keep trying to remember poetry I’ve read about nature to add to this post but instead I’ll just say this: Do more things that allow you to just BE. It’s ridiculously good for your mind, body, and soul ✌🏻
We made it through hump day! 🐪 The fact that I get to enjoy the mountains this weekend is getting me through this week. Only 2 more days to go! What’s carrying you to the weekend?

Yea! 😊 Tomorrow I am off to Pokhara for a few days of "Pokhara-life" before my group arrives on the 17th. Then we are off to the beautiful Annapurnas' for a week of trekking! Can't wait!
The photo is from last year's amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp. The great Annapurna 1 is lit up by the morning sun, behind my happy friend Prem 🤗 I am looking forward to lots of beautiful mornings like this!! 😍

What a backpacking season this yr has been. It has proven that no matter how experienced we are at this, the only thing certain is being cautiously prepared of the uncertain things that could possibly happen. Since I’ve been off the mountains for over 2mos, returning was more difficult than expected. Elevation sickness is a real mo’fo. It kept me up most of the weekend, vomiting and nauseus, didn’t wanna eat anything, and my face looked like my hiking friends injected me with botox all over it UNEVENLY. Butttt.... real talk. My friends are awesome. Despite mishaps this yr, the fun level never bottomed. Even though I wasn’t feeling well all weekend, they kept me laughing and in good spirits non stop. Here’s one of the only decent photos I got coz I was hiking soooooo slow all i got was shots from the back end. #TwatTribe4Life
May you never overlook how powerful it can be to slow down for a moment and take a little time to breathe. - Morgan Harper Nichols
Nestled against the highway is your little piece of heaven. You don’t mind that you can hear cars driving by, or that there are houses on the hill. This is your happy place (even with a stick in the eye!).
When was the last time you told someone, with total seriousness, that you’re proud of them? A few years ago, there was a guy who always worked out in my same class at the CrossFit gym I was a part of. Several of us always went to the same class so we frequently chatted before and after class. Sometimes after a particularly brutal workout when we were all wrecked, he’d tell me: “I’m proud of you.” It’s stuck with me over the years. They’re words you don’t hear often, and they can have power. Next time someone in your life is doing something amazing, no matter how small, what could you say to affirm them? It might have a bigger impact than you think.

I am slowly learning how to stop filling voids with other human beings and instead, I am slowly learning how to confront the void itself. How to heal it. — Bianca Sparacino
When Your Backpack Is The Same Size As You... 🏔
Took some time this morning to plug in my memory card and look through / edit some images from our 4 day stay on the Oregon Coast.
Since we have been on the go and always looking for the next place to stop and sleep it was much overdue to find a campground, with killer views/location, and just slow down!
We took sunset strolls on the beach each night. Hiked on rock formations. We made more meals in our Van and enjoyed campfires while the cats roamed and our living room was extended to the outdoors for a consistent amount of time in one location. #whyihike
Sometimes you look around the world, to see the dazzling walls and showering fountains of it, and feel like that today is the end and beginning at the same time. That's the moment you discover something new of yourself. That's love, cause and life.
Ayer en Pic de la Dona
Una cima muy sencilla pero que ayer fue muy luchada. Yo no tenía mi mejor día, la rodilla resentida de la bici del día anterior y los tacones de la celebración familiar. Dormir apenas 4 horitas. Rachas de viento de 70-80km/h que me tiraron al suelo en 3 ocasiones...
La intención era hacer todo el circo (Pic de la Dona - Bacivers - Bastiments) o improvisar sobre la marcha porque el Pic de l’Infern también nos llamaba. Una vez llegamos a la Portella de Mantet nos replanteamos el día porque el viento era exagerado y avanzábamos a un ritmo muy lento y poco disfrutón. Teníamos el Pic de la Dona ahí mismo así que decidimos continuar y valorar una vez allí. Después de hacer cima, de varias voladas y unas cuantas risas damos media vuelta y bajamos de nuevo hacia la Portella de Mantet. Una vez allí el viento empieza a disminuir considerablemente y empezamos a disfrutar como niños, muchas risas, caminatas sin rumbo y comida con vistas.
Primera salida de nieve de la temporada, en Noviembre y con la compañía de mi amigo @chemaguide
que otra cosa no... pero las risas están aseguradas! En resumen, apesar de las condiciones nos quedó un día para enmarcar, cargando la mochila de experiencias y sumando momentos y km
