“Because of the dog's joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?” . touché, Mary Oliver. thank you 🖤
Hey Kula gals! Today I’m super excited to feature one of my very good friends @kindapparelco (aka Mallory Ottariano) on the Kula Adventure Blog! Mallory is the owner and founder of Kind Apparel Co. In 2012, she bought a $100 serger on eBay and set up ‘shop’ in her parent’s basement. Her company quickly scaled beyond the realms of her basement studio and Etsy... Kind Apparel is now carried by retailers all over the country! Mallory has been not only a friend, but also an inspiration to me on my own adventure with Kula - in fact, she was using a Kula prototype with a donut 🍩 print long before I ever launched my website. For this interview, I talked to Mallory about Leave No Trace and about what excites her and fuels her passion as an entrepreneur. I hope that you are just as inspired by Mallory’s story as I am. I feel truly grateful to call her one of my friends and I am so excited to watch her beautiful company grow ❤️❤️ (Link in profile for blog!) 📷 @kindapparelco
2006: finishing undergraduate studies at UT Austin - look at that short hair!! 👀; 2008: some of my first kayaking / canoeing experiences on Town Lake; going to San Francisco for my first (and only) time after I started my first big girl job; 2018: living my best life in the outdoors✨ // It’s been a HUGE journey and I wouldn’t take any of it back because it’s made me the person I am today. I may have looked happy enough in those first photos but I was struggling real hard to find any purpose in being alive. I’m much happier and stronger because of the path I’ve taken & I couldn’t be where I am today without my parents, family and friends. • • • #tenyearchallenge #thenandnow #ladybirdlake #townlake #austin #sanfrancisco #optoutside #outdoorwomen #diversifyoutdoors #everyonesoutdoors #sheadventures #sheexplores #collegegraduation #familia #depression #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness
Since we released Issue One, we've been asked what can actually be done to end discrimination and harassment in the outdoors? While we don't have all of the answers to this complex questions, sometimes it starts with you. These words from @teresabaker11 sum it up it nicely. Right? 💁 . . . . . . . . . . #printisnotdead #indiemags #everyonesoutdoors #takingupspaceoutdoors #diversifyoutdoors #forceofnature #sheroams #expandthenarrative
You do not have to be good. / You do not have to walk on your knees / for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. / You only have to let the soft animal of your body / love what it loves. / Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. / Meanwhile the world goes on. / Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain / are moving across the landscapes, / over the prairies and the deep trees, / the mountains and the rivers. / Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, / are heading home again. / Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, / the world offers itself to your imagination, / calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting— / over and over announcing your place / in the family of things. || Mary Oliver . My favorite poem, a poem that has brought me comfort, inspiration & meaning. The outdoors / nature was Mary Oliver’s muse. She will be missed. #RIP . When it is over, I don't want to wonder / if I have made of my life something particular, and real. / I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened, / or full of argument. 💜 #maryoliver .

@roariorfit you are an Inspiration! I have been running since 2011. I started running because I was always mesmerized by people who could use their feet as transportation. I love both adventure and travel and am now looking forward to meshing the two together with some destination races, or other outdoor activities abroad. Climbing Mt.Kilimanjaro is on my to do list. I'm hoping to make that happen this year. My constant companion is a Garmin VivoActiveHR, and depending on if I'm running a new route, I also use the AllTrails application. I definitely prefer trails to road running, so much so that I almost gave up on the Couch-2-5k program when running on roads. The intervals seemed endless. Once I took the program out to the trails, I came alive and the program was a breeze. . . #findyourdirt #pushpeaks #trailandultra #foryourmountain #livebravely #choosemountains #choosemountainswomen #trailrunner #trailrunning #trailtime #mountainrun #mountainrunning #mountainrunner #womenofrunning #runitfast #timetoplay #amongthewild #coloradolife #incline #winterwonderland #irun #everymilematters #trailsisters #runsteepgethigh #everyonesoutdoors #optoutside #runhappy #runlikeagirl #runfree #dirtbagrunners .

Why do we adventure? Why do we trade our cushy mattresses and warm homes for a blow up pad that crinkles when we toss and turn and nylon tent walls so thin that we jump at every tiny bump that we are sure is probably a bear? Just this: Love is the feeling we get when we remember who we are Love is when we remember that our dreams are not silly or foolish Love is a moment when we watch a sunset and know that we are just as beautiful Love is looking at a mountain, and knowing that it is simply a reflection of the good in our own heart ❤️

The 3rd annual Winter Weekend Getaway was SO. DANG. FUN. We spent 3 nights on the ancestral land of the Chinook People. We came together at a cozy cabin & hiked, crafted, went cosmic tubing & honored our needs for self care & nourishment in this community. We are now planning a 4-day Fat Camp for July 2019 in Oregon. Stay Tuned! . I haven’t been as active on social media because I’m working on the first episode of the Fat Girls Hiking web series! It will be posted (hopefully) on January 20 on the Fat Girls Hiking You Tube channel. (Link in bio/comments) Subscribe to the channel & receive notification when its released! .

“In a domain like the outdoors—where masculinity has prevailed for decades—programming for women is a first step toward promoting greater inclusion and participation in the outdoor world. It’s about recognition of women as legitimate players in the outdoors and all the parts that add up to a whole of being a representative part of the conversation.” 🙌🏼 Follow the link in our bio to read more from this incredible blog post on the @rei journal looking at inclusivity in the outdoors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Featuring, @clairesmallwood_ , Co-Founder @SheJumps. @jennybruso , Founder @unlikely_hikers and Bethany Lebewitz, Founder @browngirlsclimb.

<#sponsored | @rei > Last fall, the pilot program for the AMGA Women’s Single Pitch Instructor Course took place on Native South Paiute lands at Red Rocks Canyon National Conservation Area. It was the first of its kind and just one step in the journey towards achieving equity in the climbing community. But why stop there? Here are five more actions we can take to scale opportunity for all people in climbing. ⠀⠀⠀ 1. Take time to research and understand the reasons why climbing disparities exist and how a spectrum of platforms can be part of the solution. ⠀⠀⠀ 2. Collaborate directly with climbing brands to close leadership and representation gaps—from workplace, to media, to guiding, to big wall. ⠀⠀⠀ 3. Support local grassroots organizations that are bringing an intersectional lens to the climbing community and making space for ALL people. ⠀⠀⠀ 4. Amplify work that is happening by telling the stories of people and organizations that are creating a more inclusive climbing community. ⠀⠀⠀ 5. Support the work with resources and tools without taking over. ⠀⠀⠀ Together, these five action steps—and this collaboration between companies, communities, and individuals—will serve as an astounding base for burgeoning opportunities in climbing. #EveryonesOutdoors #ForceOfNature #BrownGirlsClimb #FlashFoxy ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photos: @ladylockoff

We had an incredible summit on racial equity in outdoor and environmental leadership last week! We ended the morning feeling inspired and energized to keep the conversation going and to work with others to create tangible next steps. Conversations about race and equity are not easy for a lot of folks which is all the more reason why it’s important to keep having these discussions and to work collaboratively. A huge thank you to @elbuenaustin for hosting us and to Flavia’s Kitchen for the food! • • • #equity #racialequity #diversity #diversityandinclusion #cinca #diversifyoutdoors #everyonesoutdoors #westcave #leadership #outdoors #undoingracism
None of my photos do this place justice! ❄ 🎿 🗻
The coolest thing about this photo is not the photo or the Kula... it’s this story: The owner of this Kula was snowshoeing at Artist Point in WA when she happened upon another Kula Gal on the trail. According to one of the women, they had a, “united moment of sisterhood.” This. This is everything! What can we create if we cultivate a community of women who are positively focused on stewardship and LNT? What friendships and connections can be made by an instant kinship and recognition of other like-minded humans? When we focus on the positive work in the wilderness - more positivity and connection will blossom. Who will your Kula lead you to meet? What connections can possibly be made? Have you met another Kula gal on the trail yet? 📷 @grammb
Trails Inspire founder @desertsirena went on a hike this weekend with @unlikelyhikers in Phoenix and it was a wonderful experience! Jenny Bruso describes her platform in an @rei article: "Unlikely Hikers is a diverse and inclusive Instagram community that features those often left out of the common outdoors narrative. This includes people of color, people of size, queer, trans and gender nonbinary folks, those with differing physical abilities and people living with mental health issues" . . The hike was a display of community, teamwork and the power of positivity. And it was not by accident. At the beginning, Jenny laid down some ground rules. The group was to stay together so that no one felt left behind. This addresses one of our pet peeves during "group" hikes. Why go with a group if some of the people are made to feel like they have to play catch-up? We were also told to limit negative self-talk and to check in with each other. We loved when she said, "No one is going to win or lose on this hike. We are all in this together". She also did a land acknowledgement to recognize that we were on lands that once belonged to the Hohokam, Yavapai, and O'odham and we went around and introduced ourselves by names and pronouns. . . All this groundwork made for one of the most positive group experiences we’ve ever been a part of. 29 people moved as a team, taking breaks together, admiring views and wildflowers, cheering people up up tough ascents and getting to know each other. For many it was their first group hike and we bet every one of them came away wanting to do more. . . We also got to meet @rahawahaile , a writer who's work we’ve been following for a while. Really can't wait to read her upcoming book about her experiences on the Appalachian Trail!

The Barton Creek Greenbelt is one of those Austin treasures that makes me really happy to live here. The hike was even more of a treasure because I got to share it with a friend and talk about our experiences as people of color in the outdoors. Nature is healing and talking over a hike is one of my favorite ways to connect. It feels good to see yourself reflected in others without having to explain the “why” of your experiences. ✨ // Hike 3 of the @52hikechallenge • • • #optoutside #nature #adventure #explore #hiking #sheadventures #sheexplores #diversifyoutdoors #everyonesoutdoors #bartoncreek #bartoncreekgreenbelt #austin #austintx #hillcountry #texas #texashillcountry #campbellshole #52hikechallenge #52hikechallenge2019 #vsco #vscocam #vsconature
we took cassie on a walk yesterday with her dog pack so she could carry a few things. she got super excited, slipped out of her pack, and became loose. the zoomies ensued. these photos are the result. damn dogs. love em so hard, even when they’re being naughty.
I’m doing it big this year. I usually don’t make a big deal about birthdays but last year was so shitty. I got laid off a day before my bday from the company I was with for 4 years and then had to pick up all my stuff and move back down to GA from Chicago by myself.⠀ ⠀ So I’ve decided to do something big to ring in my 30! Also, attending an @outdoorjournaltour session has taught me it’s necessary to celebrate yourself. Its a need that we tend to look over and not fulfill. ⠀ ⠀ Ill be spending it in Guatemala with some very special lady friends. Thursday night I’ll be doing an overnight trek to watch lava flow out of Acatenango volcano near Antigua. Then watch the sunrise early in the AM from the summit the day of my bday. 😭😍⠀ ⠀ I’m a little nervous tbh. I haven’t been working out like I use to and I also realized it’s gonna be my first hike of the year 👀 how outdoorsy am I 🤷🏻‍♀️ heh⠀ ⠀ Anyway. With all that cool stuff being said - I will be on my period.⠀ ⠀ Luckily it won’t be the worst days but it will be two days of being out and about. I’ve done some research and the simplest way I see is to use tampons, carry a waste baggie and pack them in AND out. I’d love to hear some feedback as to how y’all handle this and be as eco friendly as possible. Feel free to DM suggestions also. ⠀ ⠀ -@llituma1
Some people think I laugh too much. I’ve been called ‘too happy’ multiple times in my life. My laugh is one that can be heard often and from far away. But honestly? Those comments just fuel my fire 💅🏽

I drove up to Phoenix to hike this weekend because @jennybruso from @unlikelyhikers was leading it! Jenny describes her platform in an @rei article: "Unlikely Hikers is a diverse and inclusive Instagram community that features those often left out of the common outdoors narrative. This includes people of color, people of size, queer, trans and gender nonbinary folks, those with differing physical abilities and people living with mental health issues" . . As someone who is also working to expand the outdoors narrative, I love what Jenny has done. She has taken an Instagram account and grown it into a place where people can see diverse images. But it doesn't stop there, she also travels all over the country running Unlikely Hikers group hikes. When she told me she was coming to Phoenix, I said of course I'd make the drive. . . The hike at Dreamy Draw was a display of community, teamwork and the power of positivity. And it was not by accident. At the beginning, Jenny laid down some ground rules. The group was to stay together so that no one felt left behind. This addresses one of my pet peeves during "group" hikes. Why go with a group if some of the people are made to feel like they have to play catch-up? We were also told to limit negative self-talk and to check in with each other.

All this groundwork made for one of the most positive group experiences I've ever been a part of. And I've been on a lot of group hikes both as a leader and a participant. 29 people moved as a team, taking breaks together, admiring views and wildflowers, cheering people up up tough ascents and getting to know each other. For many it was their first group hike and I bet every one of them came away wanting to do more. [continued in comments]
Happy International Women’s Snow Day! What’s a good celebration without a healthy dose of vitamin D & a bunch of stoked ladies at the top of Main Chute? Wherever you were today I hope you got to play in the mountains with your lady crew. #IWSD
Dear toilet paper: It’s me again. I guess I feel a little guilty, because I’ve never felt so excited about peeing in the woods before. I get SO excited snapping my Kula to my pack and thinking about all the places that it gets to go... Sometimes, I’m so stoked about the adventure that I even take photos of it in amazing places. I never took photos of you... and I don’t want you to feel bad about that, but the truth is - you aren’t that exciting. Nobody wants to see a photo of a piece of toilet paper. People might think I’m weird. But a Kula? I don’t know - there’s just something special about sharing that - because when I take a photo and other people ask about it... it gives me the chance to feel excited about @leavenotracecenter ethics! Plus, and I mean this in the nicest way possible - you just aren’t as photogenic. Love (as a friend, only), A Kula Gal
It’s been a bit since I posted a climbing photo on my personal account (those mostly go on my @climbonmaps account.) On this account I like to share more and beyond. But, since climbing is so very central to my life, I must circle back around to it again and again. I love this photo taken by @bvs.photo because it represents me as a climber. I am not and have never been one who chases grades. I am a climber who chases experiences. I love the long, easy climbs that allow me to relax into my surroundings - to see the trees, to hear the birds, to examine the rock. When climbing there is always an alertness to safety, sometimes with a tinge of fear, but there is nothing like being relaxed enough to go beyond the thoughts of placing pro and the next move, and instead just BE part of this incredible earth. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #womenwhoclimb #flashfoxy #climblikeagirl #girlswhoclimb #ladyclimbers #womenofclimbing #rockclimbingwomen #womenonlead #everyonesoutdoors #sheventures #sheadventures #mountaingirls #outdoorwomen #likeamountaingirl #dirtbagdarling #alpingirls #climbing #climb #climbinglife #climbrocks #theclimbinglife #climbing_is_my_passion #climbingisbliss #liveclimbrepeat #C_l_i_m_b #climbinginspiration #timetoclimb
Light painting among the Boojum at Boyce Thompson Arboretum. @btarboretum is unusual in that it has trees but also different areas that represent desert plants from around the world. The Boojum, or Cirio in Spanish, are endemic to Baja California. It’s in the same family as the Ocotillo. . . I was working on a trail project in Superior and the Arboretum was kind enough to host me onsite for several nights. Thanks BTA! As a result, I was able to capture a series of light painting images featuring my favorite plant in the state park. . . 📍Ancestral land of the Akimel O’odham

Introvert Friendships: I’m a little late, but yesterday was this fabulous lady’s birthday. . . . I really, really love birthdays. Not because of presents or parties or cake, but because once a year there is a day where the entire purpose of that day is to tell someone how special they are - to tell them how much they mean to you and to celebrate their existence on this earth and in your life. That’s a pretty special thing. . . . What I adore most about my friendship with @summerrofgeorge is how it’s the perfect example of what I want all friendships with introverts to look like. Our friendship is 90% being aware and accepting of each others’ energy levels and 10% actually hanging out. . . . Let me explain what that looks like. It means sometimes we make plans and very often we don’t make plans and choose self -care, instead. We don’t play games and make up excuses for why we can’t hang out. Instead, we’re honest with each other. “I don’t have the energy today.” “I have a full schedule this week and I need some time to recharge.” “I’d love to some time, but tonight I’m going to take a nap.” . . . The important part of this, and the part that I want everyone (and especially extroverts) to understand, is that it doesn’t mean we don’t value one another or aren’t interested in hanging out. Please keep inviting your introvert friends to things, even if they say no or cancel more often than not! It just means we need time to recharge so that next time when we show up we can bring our BEST and most radiant selves. . . . Happy belated birthday, Danica! (I hope you got some quiet time yesterday ❤️)
So you decided to go on a hike and realize it’s gonna be chilly as hell that day. WHAT SHOULD YOU WEAR? ⠀ ⠀ Here are my suggestions and a break down on what layers to wear:⠀ ⠀ First layer: Wool or synthetic clothing. Why? Because they dry much faster than other materials and help wick moisture away. Avoid cotton, it takes a very long time to dry and you’ll be hiking is a wet base layer once you start sweating.⠀ ⠀ Second layer: a fleece, a hoodie, a sweater or a poncho (love all my alpaca ponchos 😍)⠀ ⠀ Third layer: a puffy. If you don’t have a puffy then a thick coat that has some sort of insulation or at least a tough shell to stop wind from coming in. ⠀ ⠀ Feet: wool or synthetic socks for sweaty feet.⠀ ⠀ Wear a hat. That’s where heat leaves the body. ⠀ ⠀ Scarf or neck gaiter ⠀ ⠀ Also important: drink water. You may not be as thirsty as when you’re hiking in the summer but you need to stay hydrated. ⠀ ⠀ With this being said, I hope it doesn’t sound too intimidating. I know in the past I’ve heard the term “moisture wick” or asked “do you have a technical shirt” and would be clueless and wondering how expensive those things are. But once I looked through my work out clothes I realized most of them were synthetic and moisture wick. And I didn’t spend much on them (there are very reasonably priced items in stores like TJ max or Ross). Wear what you have and make it work, get creative lol ⠀ ⠀ Truth is you won’t feel so cold once your body gets in motion ☺️ ⠀ **disclaimer: this is more for beginner/day hikers. If you’re gonna do overnight trekking or spending multiple days outside in the snow, buy the fancy stuff.
“I was thrilled when nature called, and I got to test this out! It was raining/snowing on for some of this hike, so not having to dig through my bag for toilet paper was awesome! It was a HUGE relief to know that I didn’t have to either a) attempt to bury the used TP, or b) carry out my used TP.” We absolutely LOVE the glowing review that @andistillhike wrote about Kula on her blog. In addition, she found on a backpacking trip that she liked moving the Kula to her shoulder strap for easy accessibility with a heavy pack. Are you a shoulder strap Kula snapper or a back-of-the-pack snapper? We’ve linked her blog in our profile ❤️ So incredibly proud to be a part of this amazing community of adventurous women! 📷 @andistillhike

“As more people begin to appreciate the outdoors, making space for each other will become the biggest priority yet. This means acknowledging our own impact on the land, as well as the impact of others. It means sacrificing time in places that, for years, have already felt the strain of overuse. . During this government shutdown, please avoid the National Parks and allow them to heal. There is beauty in locality, adventure waiting in every backyard. It just takes a little bit of exploration.” .

@cinca_atx had a summit today on racial equity in outdoor & environmental organizations and I’m still processing the day. We had about 140-150 people in the room from nonprofits, businesses, educational institutions and city government. Some were more ready to dig in and speak explicitly about race, racism and white supremacy and others have a lot more self-reflection to do, including developing their race analysis. It was beautiful to hear our opening panelists share about their connection to nature as people of color. I took a moment to quickly scan the feedback we received from the event and these are the pieces that jumped out to me. There are two that I want to emphasize explicitly - budgets are moral documents which means that if you’re committed to racial equity, it will show up in how you prioritize your funding. The other piece is that having poc in leadership positions alone doesn’t mean we’ve achieved equity because having more melanin doesn’t automatically mean that you’ve developed your race analysis - that’s something that takes time, intention and deep self-reflection. It also doesn’t indicate whether the org / institution operates using a race equity lens, internally and externally.

Dear toilet paper, I used to carry A LOT of you on every single backpacking trip and hike. I brought extra @ziploc bags so that I could pack you out. This worked for many years, but I was tired of carrying so much of you... so I decided to try drip-drying instead. Well, that sucked. Then I heard about a Kula Cloth™️, and I thought - uhhhhhh WHAT ON EARTH? Very quickly followed by..... OMGEEEETHISISEXACTLYWHATINEED. And it’s honestly been love at first wipe - It’s antimicrobial, and TP... well, let’s just face it - you aren’t. It’s soft and absorbent and it looks beautiful on my pack. If I hung a roll of TP on my pack, I don’t think that would look really great, and it would get pretty soggy. So, all of this to say - it’s over. I mean, not COMPLETELY over, because I’ll still bring a little bit of you for times when I don’t only have to pee... and we can still be friends at home, right? I promise - it’s not you, it’s me... well, actually, it’s you. Hmmph, I guess it’s complicated. Love, A Kula Gal Convert

Snowshoeing: I’ve gotten questions recently about winter wandering, so below I’m sharing my basic snowshoeing tips and tricks. . . . A lot of things in the PNW this time of year are best explored with snowshoes, which makes it a really exciting time to play outside! Snowshoes allow you to explore areas with lots of snow, but keep you from sinking by dispersing your weight over a larger surface area. . . . REIs often offer rentals, as do smaller sports shops, as well. Your best bet is to call ahead of time in case they require reservations. If you go on a guided snowshoe tour at a National Park or Forest (which aren’t happening right now due to the govt shutdown) they will often provide the equipment for you to wear, free of charge. This is a great way to get an intro! If you want to buy them, think about the terrain you’re interested in walking on- all snowshoes are NOT created equally. If you want to travel uphill/downhill make sure look for spikes on bottom for traction...or you’ll end up unexpectedly sliding down hill like I did on my first excursion! . . . Trekking Poles: Poles help keep your balance on uneven terrain & up/down hill. They also help if you’re like me & regularly trip over your own feet ewhen walking on perfectly flat ground 😂 . . . Putting them on: Air on the side of tighter than you might think. Floppy snowshoes make it MUCH harder to walk. However, too tight and your feet will get cold from lack of blood circulation. If they’re on correctly (and on the correct feet) you should be able to walk relatively normally. People will often try to take very long, wide steps and that makes it so much harder! . . . Avalanche Risk: Winter months in the mountains also mean potential avalanche risks. This is a hazard when going up any steep slopes but also if there are steep slopes ABOVE your direction of travel. @nwacus is an amazing resource to learn more!
Last month, we collaborated with @rei (#sponsored ) and @browngirlsclimb to launch a pilot of the AMGA Women's Single Pitch Instructor Course. And while we learned a lot about the technical aspects of climbing, the powerful takeaways came more so from shared moments among women—women breathing the same fresh air and becoming better people and climbers through the collective knowledge and experiences of the group. ⠀⠀⠀ The SPI course took place on Native South Paiute lands at Red Rocks National Conservation Area. Stay tuned for future course opportunities. More thanks go out to @americanalpine , @amga1979 , @heyflashfoxy , @jhtmnguides , and @ladylockoff. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photos: @ladylockoff ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ——— ⠀⠀⠀⠀ We believe the outdoors is for everyone—from boardroom to backcountry.
