I love taking photographs (when I'm hiking). . I hate carrying my camera. . Any tips on convenient ways to carry the cam? My camera would sure appreciate it, it too gets sick of bouncing off my hip. . . #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #dogsofinstagram #goeast #nikon #photography
I started a little fire while I was up there on the top of this mountain. Then I took all my worries and cares, squished them right into a ball and tossed them all into the open flame. Yup, I burned them right up into ash. Scooped up whatever embers hadn't blown away on the breeze and scattered it all right into a small hole that I had dug by the blaze. Covered that shit up, turned around and walked right away. I didn't look back until I took this photo. .. Just kidding, that would have scarred the mountaintop for the next visitors. . #leavenotrace .. . . .. #getoutmor #adirondacks #adk #firetower #hikeny #scenicny #visitadks #pureadk #liveyouradventure #fuelyouradventure #catchthehigh

When I look out my window on this long day this is where I’ll be. If you’re a dreamer like me I’m sure you have your own special window view. 😌⛰🍂#takemetothemountains #imagine #dreamingofthe #whitemountains
Summit naps prior to sunset are highly encouraged. . The moments after the sun sets, as you make your descent and the sky's glowing through the trees...that...yeah-- that's my favorite part. . .. #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #dogsofinstagram #goeast #adirondacks #sunset

Those beautiful leaves are starting to fall, and I’m loving the signs of Autumn adding color to the flow. 🍂💦🧡 #autumniscoming #leavesarefalling #flowingwater
This little HaBaSa loop was no joke. . . This was a picture taken before we climbed ladders (Boone riding dirty up on my shoulder), faced the Saddleback cliffs and jogged most of the way back to the car half excited/half in pain. . . #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #dogsofinstagram #goeast #adirondacks
Last years excursion to Acadia National Park was so friggin' epic that I did not think it could be topped, ever. Boy was I wrong!! .. This year we were joined by Tuesday who kicked butt at every steep and exposed trail Ciara and I threw her way!! Then we all had some serious laugh sessions as we ate vegan ice cream (fingers became spoons) on the side of Paradise Hill Rd as the sun set and the stars emerged. . Can't wait for our next plant & kombucha-fueled adventure.. THIS WEEKEND!! .. . . .. #getoutmor #hikeme #acadianationalpark #hikemaine #jordanpond #plantpowered #discovertheroad #lifeofadventures #findyourpark
The moment the rain stopped and the sun popped out I immediately thought, “Wouldn’t it be a perfect day for a sunset hike.” I love having friends that will grab their pack and chase the sunset with me. 👯‍♀️ @yours_treely Pups and sunsets = perfect end to a rainy day 💕🐕🌄#sunsetchasers
Starry nights ✨ #getoutmor
If you need portraits just dm me and let me know 📷 ° ° #getoutmor
Thanks to an awesome suggestion (thank you @breckanized ) we had so much fun exploring and zooming around the beautifully groomed trails of the Daks. . . Let's just say we definitely went All In!! . . #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #dogsofinstagram #runningcommunity #dogsthatrun
One of my favorite views in the 'dacks, from Haystack.. Basin, Saddleback, Gothics, maybe a bit of Armstrong in there for good measure. .. So wild to stand on each one and look back just to say "damn.. we came that far??" .. . . .. #getoutmor #adk #adirondacks #highpeaks #thegreatrange #hikeny #trailrunningviews #choosemountains
It took us two attempts to complete Irene Creek. The first time around we reached the drop in point only to realize our rope was too short...by ~20 ft due to low water conditions. While we had extra webbing we could’ve used to reach the bottom, it was a canyon neither of us had explored before and there wasn’t a ton of info on the route description. We also knew we would face another long rappel at the end that we weren’t sure if we could complete at that point. After spending an hour deciding what we should do, we reluctantly decided to turn around and hike an hour back out the steep approach trail. While we were pretty frustrated we couldn’t complete the canyon, we came to a decision as a team. Sometimes it’s hard to keep your excitement and ego in check and use the rational, responsible part of your brain. So many accidents outside happen because we underestimate the risks and consequences. While we consider ourselves competent canyoneerers, there was no clear, and above all SAFE, alternate route to take. Ultimately, the safety and welfare of not only yourself, but also the people you care about is at risk and is never something to brush off. If you ever have even an inkling of hesitation or concern, speak up to your partners! There’s always another chance to do something. We ended up returning the next weekend and completed the canyon. No regrets were to be had and it was even more beautiful because we got to share the adventure with our friend :-) S/O to Autumn for helping us bring The Creation of Adam alive👉🏻👈🏻
We have called this field "home" many times now, but we never found the trails surrounding the runway (the airport is made of packed dirt).. catching a few dusk miles as we tire the doggies out and retire to our books in the tent. 📚 .. . . .. #getoutmor #trailrun #sunset #sunsetrun #discovertheroad #veganrunner #everytrailconnects #scenicny #adk #adirondacks #iloveny #roamandrun
There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness, that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy, and its charm. @smugalbatross
I’m still buzzing with inspiration from this weekend, so my motivation today is really easy to find. I met women that let the doubt of others push them to surpass their own expectations and dreams. These women were Ultra Runners, mountain climbers, wilderness survival guides , adventure photographers and so much more. I took a class with one woman who backpacks for 30-40 days at a time, while leading others and teaching wilderness survival/first aid. I also met another fellow teacher, @themirnavator , that made her dreams become a reality through her incredible ambition and determination. Hearing her speak was very special to me and really made me feel connected coming from some similar experiences. And then there is little old me. My dreams seem small when I compare them to others, but there was a lot of talk about comparison this weekend as well. I don’t compare myself to others anymore, but I do use their stories for motivation every day. Today I feel so much more comfortable telling my students they can truly be anything they want to be, mostly because I very much believe it as well. I hope that you all find some motivation today to take even the smallest step towards making your dreams a reality. ⛰💚💪 #mondaymotivation #mountainmonday #shewillmovemountains #letsdothis
Mid-hike naps are always encouraged. . .. . #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #dogsofinstagram #brothers #findyourpark
"There are no clouds in the sky, you want clouds in the sky for a good sunset!", they said. .. "Tomorrow will be a better sunset", they said. .. I'm totally content with today's sunset, anywhere and anyhow nature wants to give it to us, I guess just getting to enjoy it from such elevated, quiet places is just an added bonus 🤙 .. . . .. #getoutmor #catchthehigh #sunsethike #adirondacks #adk #adkmountains #fuelyouradventure #scenicny
Dylan will climb every tree in the forest, and I’ll take pictures of all of them because I’m so impressed with my boy! ❤️🌳 #getoutmor #hikeitbaby #togetherwehike #raiseawildchild
The best way to end an incredible weekend was with a climb up Mount Dickey and Welch with this beauty right here. Thank you @widdlewiss for experiencing this with me, dealing with my tossing and turning, my sweaty and stinky, my excitement and exhaustion and for all you have done to encourage and inspire me along the way. ⛰💪💚🙌#womenwhohike #womenwhoinspire #sweatydirtyhappy
#hike15 of my @52hikechallenge last Monday in Acadia. We did the Peak Baggers Dream and managed to bag Bald Mtn, Parkman Mtn and Gilmore Peak before we had to return to the car for our afternoon cliff climbing session!

Every sunrise fills me with opportunity and ambition and every sunset fills me with gratitude and warmth. . .. . #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #dogsofinstagram #sunset #adirondacks
The mixed emotions and a sigh of relief come from Ciara and Crockett as we topped over the Saddleback Cliffs .. Despite their innate climbing ability, we literally carried each pup up and down cliffs that they could not navigate on their own.. then we all watched in awe as my Nalgene bottle slipped out of my pack and tumbled several hundred feet off the Haystack precipice never to be seen again.. this is the hug after the realization that our 70+ mile weekend was coming to a close and we were still all safe albeit with a few cuts, bruises and half a million black fly bites from the summit of Basin Mt. .. I love my crew!! .. . . .. #getoutmor #catchthehigh #werehikers #hikeny #adirondacks #fuelyouradventure #pawsome #plantpowered #neverroamalone #mydogismy #livelifeoffleash #vegansinthewild

No cell service, 60+ miles of running/hiking, two exhausted pups and enough dirt under my fingernails to fill a jar. . I'd say that was one heck of a vacation. . .. . #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #dogsofinstagram #goeast #lgopups
After starting our Adirondack-fest off with 3 days of rain and sloshing around the wet trails and finding mud up to our knees several times, we decided to go out with a 19 mile, 5000'+ elevation gain loop of Haystack, Basin and Saddleback Mountains. HaBaSa to the locals.. . Perfect 4am start with a phenomenal sunrise with the summits black jagged silhouettes from Johns Brook Lodge, the 'dacks treated us to some low wind and high sun all day as we hiked, ran, climbed and dined on Ciara's finest creations atop the Saddleback Cliffs. .. Even with 3 out 4 cameras being left in the car, the sketchy, silly, best moments together are logged in our memory banks ..pretty sure we both don't want to leave. .. . . .. #getoutmor #adk #highpeaks #plantpowered #exploreadk #hikeny #catchthehigh #fuelyouradventure #roadtrippin #exploreny #pureadk #adirondacks #choosemountains
Are you enjoying the wonderful Fall weather? While on the Appalachian Trail at Harriman State Park (NY) I had an orange ‘newt’ keeping up with me along some of the moderate trail!
The adventure shots are coming, but the stars up here are just wow. Finally got my gaze at that Milky Way. 😍🙌💫#stargazing #grateful #thankyouuniverse #sweatydirtyhappy
The first glimpse of east coast light trying to shine through to the highest peak on Mount Desert Island. .. Even in decent autumn winds we were joined by what seemed like half of the islands residents taking in the birth of a new day.. oh well, back to the quiet forests I go! .. . . .. #getoutmor #acadianationalpark #sunrise #barharbor #cadillacmountain #hikemaine #catchthehigh #discovermaine #liveyouradventure #hikeme

Found some old film rolls rolling around the center console and decided to see what treasures they held....10/10 was not disappointed #tbt
Impromptu adventures are the best adventures 📷 #getoutmor
You can always get money back, but not time. Once time has been spent, that's it. . Make your time special to you. Spend it with those you love. Make memories, and try not to worry so much about the little things in life... (and definitely eat that chocolate). . .. . #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #goeast #dogsofinstagram #ladiesgetoutside #lgopups
I remember seeing photos of myself, when I was young and we would spend weekends hiking and exploring the high peaks of the NY Adirondacks, the one thing I always noticed right away were my excited, squinty eyes. . Now I see I have those excited, squinty eyes yet again, years later.. .. . . .. #getoutmor #hikemaine #runmaine #trailrunning #catchthehigh #fuelyouradventure #veganrunner #vegansinthewild #hikeme

That quad grinding elevation gain that most trail runners crave early in the morning can still be found if one looks for it, but if you want totally rad trails for miles and miles, Acadia has to be the place! .. Roads if you desire some autos to dodge, super soft soil with some roots to spring off of, rocks and ruts to keep the obliques engaged, miles of lumber boardwalks radiating from the lakes to keep your environmental impact low, and plenty of water to cool down in after you crank out a quick 30mi down the carriage paths. . Many reasons why running Acadia is pretty darn stellar..have fun out there!! .. . . .. #maineistheplace #scenicmaine #desertisland #acadianationalpark #findyourpark #getoutmor #fuelyouradventure #catchthehigh #hikeme
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Exploration is our middle name. Sometimes we drive around looking for hidden little gems, and sometimes we just stumble upon some breathtakingly serene places. . .. . #Optoutside #llbeanmoment #dogsofinstagram #goeast #lgopups
Ahhh yesss!!! That sweet taste of the good life once again.. . Daylight on the trails, nightlife around the fire before curling up in the tent, just to wake up and do it all over again the next day (after coffee of course) .. . . .. #getoutmor #fuelyouradventure #runmaine #discovermaine #findyourpark #catchthehigh #runnershigh #liveyouradventure #discovertheroad #tentlife #hikeme
