I can’t bring myself to upload any photos from my DSLR because post-thru-hike depression is a very real thing, and I might cry when I start photomerging my panoramas... so, here’s an iPhone photo of where I slept for two nights, and would have stayed forever!! If @ty.yates would have let me. 🙄 #sixthhighest [ BACK ON THE TRAIL IN ONLY 18 DAYS THO. AAAAHH. 🙀 ]
Still one of my favourite places I’ve camped, under the shadow of peaks like Gimli, and waking up surrounded by mountain goats in the morning. #valhalla #alwaysanadventure #campoften #kootrocks #explorebc #celebratewild #keepitwild
Can you spot @richmond19 ?? Really puts the size of this place into perspective!
It's been just over a month since I moved into my place in Colorado! In that time, I have been able to paint 70 minis and 11 larger wall signs! Whew! 🎨 . If you check my stories, you can see me about to spray varnish a whole big batch! So glad I have a garage here! 👍 . Do you have a garage? Do you keep your car in it or use it for storage? 🚗 . #woodslice #paintedwood #mountainart #mountainpainting #natureart #natureisrad #naturevibes #natureislove #mountainlove #womenwhohike #lessismuir #mountainlover #naturedecor #woodwallart #wooddecor #paintingonwood #acryliconwood #liveoutdoors #happyart #exploreandcreate #colorfulart #movemountains #ohwowyes #wandermore #wanderoften #artbysharell
It’s finally Friday! One more week till @storms66 and I backpack the Wallowas!
Moon set or sunrise? 🌝🌞 either way, watching it happen over the not-so-little canyon that we called Home for the night was pretty spectacular.
Hopped down to the #lower48 to check out the #annarborartfair and to convince my mom to let me see a midnight movie at the historic #statetheatre #upallnight

Really missing all the flowers in Oregon today. Anyone know what these are? (Totally not a quiz, I really don’t know this time!)
Sunburns and mosquito bites don’t matter when you’re on that summit high!
Summer days ☀️
Having wanderlust withdrawals as I look through photos while sick in bed 🤒 can’t wait for this body of mine to heal up so I can hit the trails again soon! #findyourpark #rmnp

Have you ever been swimming in an alpine lake? It’s cooooooooooold!
Life was way too normal today after such an unreal weekend. Take me back to the gambler life ☠️ #squadgoals #abg
Wildflowers plus snowcapped mountains is probably the best combination ever. Maybe peanut butter and chocolate comes first, but this would still be a pretty close second 🏔🌸
Yesterday we drove 6 hours total to do one of the best hikes I’ve ever done! It was absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to go back and explore some more! 📸: @richmond19

Our Instagram is filled with shots of our pods in the wild, right where they belong, but once in awhile we like to see these beauties in all their isolated glory. This amazing build was made possible by @t.hollingshead and her family. This model as it sits was around 15k - check out our website for all our add ons and build options. #towandbehold

Goodbye #blockbustervideo I never really knew you @lastweektonight thanks for the chance to see russel Crowe’s #jockstrap at such a young age. Only in #fairbanks #Alaska
It’s July 15th and I still feel like I haven’t fully enjoyed summer. Gotta make the most of the rest of it! I have yet to go camping... 😭🏕
15 mile run today and only 2100 gain 😂. That word ONLY is used very freely among endurance athletes. The truth is that I struggled today. At mile 10 I had to ration 10 ounces of water to last for 5 miles in mid 90's heat. One more run tomorrow then time to taper! Who wants to run Tuesday? #buckinhell #santamonicamountains #toplesstuesdays #heartrunners #only #xterrasocal #toughtopanga #lessismuir
A sticky and humid summit early this morning. To commemorate my 65th summit, I drew a selfie instead of taking one, This is so much cooler than my face. It was an amazing climb and grateful for each one I’ve gotten this year.

That moment when someone gives you an excellent review on Etsy for an awesome candle that apparently smells GREAT....but you sold them a painting on wood! 😂😂 Really hoping they didn't try to burn my art! Jk! 😋 . Thanks as always for the fabulous reviews coming in, I really appreciate you taking the time to write a sweet note! 😘😘 . Etsy restock happening next week, get excited! 🎉 . . #artbysharell #denverartist #denverartists #hikemoreworryless #supportwomenartists #denverartscene #denverarts #denverart #coloradoartist #coloradoart #mountainart #mountainpainting #natureisrad #naturevibes #natureislove #mountainlove #womenwhohike #lessismuir #mountainlover #exploreandcreate #natureismagic #hikevibes #hikerslife #hikerlife #mountainlovers #mountainsplease #naturetherapy #mountainlife #themountainsarecalling
16 miles and 5600 gain at Mt. Baldy yesterday. I knew that altitude takes it out of you but waking up this morning I really felt it. When my alarm went off at 530 to go run my body said: that's gonna be a no from me dawg. No soreness but just really tired. I'll get some miles today as it's my last week of hard training but I needed the extra sleep. #LUNAsandals #clouds #mtbaldy #heartrunners #buckinhell #lessismuir #2xu #myboausa #werunwithyou
Coffee☕, Mountains⛰ and Adventure🤸... When the mountains and the canyons capture your attention and bring you back to yourself! We got to witness to beauty of the Colca Valley and Colca Canyon with our friends @peruhop and @findlocaltrips
Fun setting my new camera has!
Waterfalls for days. This was my favorite part of the park, easily.
Use your voice and advocate for yourself, take no bullshit, know your worth/POWER, and cut out what makes you unhappy. And if you literally or financially can’t do that, then start making the moves you need to so you CAN. Life is too damn short and your potential is too damn much. Ask yourself: IF IT’S KILLING YOUR SOUL, IS IT WORTH IT?
“Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do” -Rumi Had the opportunity to take @beccasunflower on her first backpacking trip in Colorado and it was spectacular!
Cheers! It’s Thursday!
#tbt Missing this cold water today. 🌿🌞🏊‍♂️
Went up Hondo Canyon and up to Fossil ridge yesterday. Summer time! I guess all this running in heat is working. I thought it was warm but not that bad. My watch said the low was 88 and high 97. 2 trail runs this week so far with a total of 4K gain. Tomorrow back to Mt. Baldy! Buckin Hell is about 2 weeks away! #lessismuir #santamonicamountains #buckinhell50k #doinla #heartrunners #heattraining #toughtopanga #xterrasocal #clouds
I’ve been on plenty of adventures and I’ve counted plenty of trail steps, but it has been a little while since I’ve been long distance on a trail. I’ve spent the last four weeks eliminating caffeine from my diet, reconditioning my legs for distance, unpacking some serious emotional garbage, and rediscovering that tiny little corner of my heart that is absolutely fearless. It’s been pretty quiet for a while and I can’t say I blame it. So, we’re gonna go for a walk tomorrow, spend a few days rekindling our love for each other, and cross some new bridges together. ✌🏻 Quality heart time. • Big thanks to @iyelli for letting me borrow @ty.yates for a few days! Y’all are the best and I’m so excited for the beer reunion when we get back. Can we schedule that?
Little big things: end of day light after a not so good day, it brings you back from the brink and reminds all will be okay.
Home on the range, blue skies all day…

#vanlife #dinnertime - there is something so #Alaska about sitting by the #campfire with my dad in our @xtratufboots and @carhartt #sportsmobile
Goodbye #magical #McCarthy , I hope to see you again soon filled with #cottonwood dreams #travelalaska
What a weekend. Saturday I spent almost 5 hours "running" 16 miles in the SM mountains. I started at 6:30am. According to my watch it got up to 106. It sucked. Sunday I didn't start until 6pm and went for 12 miles. It was fantastic and although the watch said I started at 94 degrees of just got cooler as I went and finished at a chilly 81 degrees. A good way to end a 53 mile week with 11k gain. Hoping this heat calms down for Friday, going to run at Mt Baldy! #buckinhell50k #losangeles #doinla #california #santamonicamountains #sunset #singletrack #lessismuir #heartrunners
Happy Monday! I had a great weekend but I am dragging today 😴😴😴
I may not have gone to bed until almost 2 AM last night, but I am officially HALFWAY done with grad school! (And done for the rest of the summer!) I suppose I may as well finish at this point...😏🤓
My vessel for getting through this crazy life is compromised. I lay frozen in the unknowns of my future. Will I ever recover. Feels like a no. Send your most healing vibes and keep me in your thoughts as I battle this head cold that has me questioning everything. — This photo is a prettier depiction of what’s going on in my noggin. — **To be clear, this is me being dramatic.

“If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.” Seeing so much growth along the trails in the Gorge gives me hope!

Watkins Glen State Park - I’m so glad I got a chance to go and check it out. Thanks @srrybouturface88 for showing me more of your childhood!
