The power of self-care. ——— It’s amazing what being in the mountains can do to your mindset. A strong work ethic is so deeply ingrained into my being that it’s hard for me to take time away from the day-to-day grind. But I’ve seen how even taking a day to go hiking in the mountains has provided me with the motivation and clarity to move 10 steps forward. Do you ever just take a day to go up to the mountains to get some clarity? ———
“Its kind of fun to do the impossible.” ~Walt Disney ___________________________ This is going to be one of those photos that is likely not going to be as popular as some of my others, and yet there is something about it that draws me in and speaks to me, for that reason, I love it. _____________________________ . . . #yeg #icecastles #wintercityyeg #wintercity #pocket_frozen #artofvisuals #thecanadiancollective #explorecanada #imagesofcanada #totescanadian #explorealberta #exploreedmonton #mustbeyeg #edmontonrivervalley #1minuteedmonton #dailyhiveedmonton #pocket_family #raw_seasons #raw_canada #raw_community #raw_vip #igyeg #yeggers #urbanyeg #livelovecanada #welovewinter #chuck_frosty #waltdisney
If you love being out in the crisp winter air, then you’re definitely in the right city, lol! Seriously though, Edmonton has so many great places to explore on ski or snowshoe- the River Valley Trails in particular are well maintained and -would you believe- 22 times bigger than NYC’s Central Park! What’s your favourite thing to do during Edmonton’s winter? #yeg #yeglife #yegliving #yeggers #igyeg #snowshoe #activeliving #urbanescape #yeglocal #yegrivervalley #yegbusiness #mortgagebroker #edmonton #edmontonalberta #edmontonliving #edmontonrivervalley #edmonton #canadianwinter #snow #fitness
There is something to be said about the Edmonton skyline; it's very pretty. A lot of people like to come up to Scona Road, park their cars up, and take a nap. I slept well after this shot.

Sending some love to all the YEG photographers out there. We are so lucky to have such a talented group here in Edmonton. Thank you!

SIGNAL VS. NOISE All of the things that distract you or bring you closer to your goal. ———— Noises are all of the small things that don’t amount to much when you look at the bigger picture. These are things that distract you from your end goal. They can be internal or external to you (e.g. inner voices that tell you you’re not good enough, friends that distract you, or comments made by others that deter you away from your pursuit. Signals are the things that need your attention and pave the way towards your vision. This year, I’ve really started to see how this is applicable cross any setting where there’s an end goal involved: whether you’ve set a short-term goal to lose weight and you’re getting distracted by the many weight loss methodologies, if you’re a healthcare practitioner trying to understand your patient’s goals, or you’re a business owner trying to scale. It’s easy to know what’s a signal and what’s just noise. The harder part is not letting yourself get distracted by the noise. Just some #mondaynightthoughts

Winter Scene... Snow motion. A snow day back in December. My kids gave me an app for Xmas. I can make snow move with it. I wish it would shovel my sidewalk. #motiongraphic #landscape_capture #alberta #edmontonrivervalley #northsaskatchewanriver #Edmonton #snowfall #instagramhub #snowmotion

Had to put in that work cause we really came from nothing. So that means countless of late nights and early mornings regardless of whether it’s a weekend, holiday or vacation. Some call it extreme, I just call it staying focused. ———

This morning, I started my prep for my plan to hike the #westcoasttrail in early June, with 6 down/ups this hill in the extraordinary #edmontonrivervalley 🙂♥️🙃 . . . #wct2019 #bucketlist #beautifulsundaymorning #grateful

I had the hardest time choosing which photo of @alenapaige_model to post because she played the part of an Ice Queen to perfection. Thanks for braving the weather for us and thanks again to @instagramyeg and @icecastles_ for hosting!

Russian text to follow. Русский текст ниже. Explored a new place today - #WestridgePark . I started near #WestridgeCommunityCentre , where the trail was (disappointingly 🤣) wide and clean...untill I reached a bridge. Underneath, there was a ravine with a small trail. So, 'cause I love wild forest trails, I got down and continued my walk. When I reached a brook, I took a trail going on the sides of the ravine; and this is where the fun begun! I often felt like a mountain goat balancing on the edge! I wouldn't say hiking that trail was as frightening as the one at #LarchSanctuary , but still I'd rate it as a risky trail for winter time. It ended by a 200step #WolfWillowStairs near the #NorthSaskatchevanRiver , taking me back to the direction I started my trip. The last part of my itinerary was a path in a residential area, which was not bad given the fact I was already tired! So, I just did a speedy walk, but if you want to challenge yourself you can run here. Overall, I liked the wilderness of this trail in the middle of the city. I will come back to see its beauty at the summer time! Исследовала сегодня Westridge Park. Начала свой маршрут около Westridge Community Centre, где дорога (к сожалению 🤣) была широкая и расчищенная, до тех пор пока я не дошла до моста...А вот под ним оказался овраг с тропинкой. Ну а так как я обожаю дикие лесные тропы, то туда я пошла! Когда я добралась до ручья, то пошла по дорожке идущей по склонам оврага; и вот тут то и началось веселье! Я себя ощущала горным козлом, скачущим над обрывом! Это не было так страшно, как моё карабкание по тропам Larch Sanctuary, но всё равно маршрут для зимы рисковый. Закончился он 200 ступенчатой лестницей у реки North Saskatchewan, которая вывела меня в направлении точки исхода. Последний отрезок пути я шла по дороге между домов, что в общем то было даже неплохо, так как я уже устала. Поэтому я её спринтерски прошла, но для любителей нагрузок тут как раз можно и побегать. В целом, мне понравилось что среди жилого района есть такой уголок дикой природы с трудным маршрутом. Вернусь сюда в летом полюбоваться на его красоту! #edmontonrivervalley #yeg #exploreedmonton #edmontonparks #cityhiking
Another fantastic day of winter riding in the river valley. It’s great to see @revans1313 joining Nigh and I in the madness. Hopefully a Saturday tradition now until all this white crap melts. 😁 . . . . . #edmontonrivervalley #yegrivervalley #yegride #terwillegar #winterride #winterriding #explorealberta
