Today's Proactive social hike to the summit of Twin Mountain - a section of the notorious Devil's Path - was an amazing experience! . Twin Mountain, our 15th social hike, was our first in the Catskills (more are certainly to come) and our last of 2018! . With snowfall just last night, frigid temperatures, thick ice coating just about everything, & significant winds, this was not a hike for the trepidatious! . Thank you to everyone who joined us today and braved the harsh conditions - keeping an excellent pace throughout - in pursuit of adventure! . We've said it before - we're just getting started! 2018 has been phenomenal and we have SO much more in store for 2019! . We cannot articulate how much your support has meant to us - THANK YOU! . We're excited to pay it forward by presenting more all-original content, exciting events, and opportunities to be proactive & join the adventure in the new year! . Be proactive, join the adventure! . www.proactiveahw.com
Once upon a time there was a girl and a dog. They both had wild hearts full of adventure, and they were lucky enough to find each other. You know the rest. #justagirlandherdog #mydogismy #trailbuddy
Just a brief few hours from now, Proactive will hit the trails for our first social hike in the Catskills! . We're facing 6 miles on Twin Mountain, a section of the Devil's Path, under frigid conditions - the challenge is sure to make the summit just that much sweeter. . Stay tuned for updates from our final Proactive social hike of 2018! . Be proactive, join the adventure! . www.proactiveahw.com
When the dog looks right at the camera = priceless. 💙🙌🐕
Another waterfall chasing adventure to this beauty. I love how the mix of snow showers and blue skies made this breathtaking view change by the minute. *Make sure you pack your spikes if you plan on taking a trip to the falls any time soon!
We are family!! Get up everybody n’ SKI ⛷🏂
Number 4 on my top 10 day adventures list is Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park. I did Angels Landing for the first time in 2013 then again in 2017. Such a fun hike. Love the ledges, chains, and gorgeous views but the crowds in Zion can be exhausting. I can’t wait to spend more time in Zion . . #Utah #FindYourPark #Zion #alltrails #hiking #nature #Adventurenthusiasts #AmongTheWild #teamvane #awakethesoul #westbysouthwest #allwilderness #roamtheplanet #keepitwild #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #NP10k #nationalparkgeek #NationalParkLife #national_park_photography #lifeofadventure #IGSouthWest #getoutmor #utahunique #Utahgram #Igutah #Utahisrad #wowutah #onlyinutah #weRutah

Twice the love for trails and parks! 🗻 In the month of December make your gift go twice as far for your trails and trail lands. In the spirit of the season, a generous donor extended this matching period through the end of 2018 to create our December Challenge. Through Dec. 31, 2018, your gift is doubled, meaning $50 automatically turns into $100 to protect the trails and the lands you love. Give today! It costs us close to $3 million annually to keep trails in our region open, safe, and protected. And the new tax laws and competition for funds during the midterm elections have affected our fundraising efforts. If you value all the Trail Conference does for your quality of life by keeping trails and the lands they pass through free, safe, and protected, your continued support—today and throughout the year at nynjtc.org/donate—is essential. When you head outside, you count on great, well-maintained trails and parks—and we count on the support of every outdoor-lover to make that possible. Your generosity makes a difference! Please consider supporting your trail builders, maintainers, and protectors with a tax-deductible gift to the Trail Conference this December.

When my sister and I were much younger our father would take us to run in the local forest, we had a favorite spot that he always called "The Dinosaur's Back". Here and there I still run over ridges that bring me right back to the goofy short kid (I'm still short) who believes they are scurrying down the bumpy ridged spine of the Loch Ness and that one wrong step from us will awaken it and we'll have a whole new set of issues on our hands. .. Nature is a fun place to be a kid again. Have an awesome weekend y'all!! 🤙 .. . . .. #getoutmor #catchthehigh #runnershigh #runthewhites #runmountains #trailrunning #winterrunning #snowrunning #welivetoexplore #whitemountains

On 12.18 we'll be heading north for our first of many social hikes in the Catskills - Twin Mountain! This 3,500+ foot peak is part of the lauded Devil's Path! Snow shoes and spikes are required for this one! . Become a site member or log-in for details and to register! Link in bio. . Be proactive, join the adventure! . www.proactiveahw.com
We went to the forest to get high in the mountains and see the sun come up, so we stood where more than 12,000 others have made their memorable trek. .. We stood on Lambert Ridge as the sun rose and we had no need for our headlamps as we found another incredible day along the Appalachian Trail. .. . . .. #getoutmor #catchthehigh #fuelyouradventure #thetrek #whitemountains #hikenh #trailrunning #winterrunning #hikethewhites

“Audentes fortuna iuvat (Fortune favors the bold.)” -Virgil I saw this quote today in a book that I am reading with my students. After the tricky rock scrambling during the hike in this photo I really feel like Roxy was looking down on what she conquered. That’s my trail buddy, and I’m so proud of her. #mydogismy #trailbuddy
So many "happy little trees" in one place. .. Can you hear them chuckling? Perhaps if you took the time, slowed your pace a bit and listened I would bet that you could. .. So many happy little trees all in one place laughing to one another as they throw their freshly fallen powder down my jacket, down my neck. At first it makes me exclaim "what the heck man!!" But that doesn't last for long. .. Much like how it is said in the movies - Que sera, sera. . Whatever will be, will be. .. Cheers y'all, happy Tuesday!! 🤙 .. . . .. #getoutmor #catchthehigh #fuelyouradventure #smartsmountain #whitemountains #hikethewhites #hikenh #winterhiking #naturalnewengland #runnershigh #exploreperfection

Sad to see you go, but I love watching you leave. ✌️🌞
Reposting this pic because we didn’t realize IG messed it up the first time around 😑 - Anyhow, thanks @benthomas for your questions last time!! What was our favorite place? Best food? What people/communities did we find most enjoyable? - Overall, Utah was our favorite adventure spot. Mile for mile, the state is unmatched with its beautifully weird, sprawling natural landscapes. Each national park is so unique, yet so jaw droppingly pretty, you can’t help but do a double take everywhere you go. Coming from the PNW where the landscapes are just so different, we continue to be amazed. Our favorite food would hands down be this delicious Oaxacan restaurant in Monterrey, NL, Mexico that actually took us 3 tries to finally snag a seat (mostly our fault), but when we finally did, we TREATED ourselves in all that goodness from mole platters to fresh jamaica juice, just WOW. Going along with that trend, we would have to say that the people we met during our time in Mexico really stood out to us. We loved the interactions we had there. Everyone was so friendly, even if we would stumble over our words in Spanish! It was great getting to cross paths with all the people we met there - one of our most memorable encounters being a father and a son who we accidentally stumbled upon while exploring a canyon. They were out relaxing, enjoying a nice outdoor bath, when all of a sudden we show up in our wetsuits and harnesses and they’re just looking back at us in their birthday suits. All four of us were shocked and surprised to say the least but thankfully they were very good humored about it. Later, we ran into them again and got a chance to share our stories of where we had been since last seeing them!

Life can be scary, but I’m still enjoying living on the edge every damn day. #justagirlandherdog #mountainmonday 📷 @trailosophy 🙌
We took a little trip during the night, ascending over ice and snow until the blood reds and light peach hues peeked up over the surrounding summits. No need for headlamps as we kicked up fresh powder along the ridge and the soft whisper of wind over on the granite made the ice glisten like the disco ball all our friends were dancing to since the previous evening. .. We went to Smarts Mountain and the views were pretty darn fine!! .. . . .. #getoutmor #hikenh #catchthehigh #fuelyouradventure #hikethewhites #whitemountains #scenicnh #smartsmountain #firetower
So grateful to have open space and so many opportunities for hiking in the tri-state region. A big shout out to those organizations who have made it possible, thank you!
Stumbled upon some cars that have seen better days on today's little jaunt 🚗
One of my favorite views after climbing some crazy rock scrambles this weekend. 🐕⛰💚

Then I wake up at my desk and realize it has just been too too long since I broke out some Sublime, Nirvana, Soundgarden, or Alice In Chains cassette tapes. .. Then I have that second long thought of "aww shit.. kinda getting old these days.." .. Only if I feel old!! I don't.. so then I go throw on some Led Zeppelin and plan another epic hike in the mountains to top this incredible day scootin' around The Bonds!! 🤘 .. . . .. #getoutmor #oldage #runnersofthewild #winterrunning #runthewhites #whitemountains #trailrunning #snowshoeing #catchthehigh #runnershigh
