Kananaskis, AB • Sometimes I forget that it’s just as important to do right by yourself as it is to do right by everyone else. I wish that I were as good at taking my own advice as I am at giving it, or that I knew just as well when I need help as I can tell when someone else does. Last night, I remembered a lot. This little lake feels more like home than most places these days, and last night I really needed the quality home time. And... just to listen to the rain fall.
We started in Mom's garage fueled by coffee and a desire to escape the status-quo. And while we've come a long way from those beginnings, our values remain a driving force behind our mission every day. We’ve finally created something for you that does our story justice. We welcome you to officially Meet Escapod (link in bio) #borninutah #bredforadventure #towandbehold vid credit: @mountainstandardcreative
Beautiful flight in!
Looking at the photo, it almost looks like it was warm this day. Like you could jump right on into that clear blue lake and be happy about it. In reality, the thought of jumping in didn’t even cross our minds. We were fighting the wind with every step! We did try to have a snowball fight, but our hands were too cold to form more than one ball of snow 😂
Heads up! If you still haven’t taken the opportunity to explore Cades Cove car free on a Wednesday or Saturday until 10a.m, next Wednesday - September 26th is the last day to do so. 💚
Reminiscing about when my family was visiting last weekend and we hit the mountains! 🏞️ The colors of the trees were gorgeous! Colorado locals, where is your favorite spot to see the Aspen trees?! This is my first fall here! 🍂🍁 . P.S. Doesn't our picnic spot by the alpine lake look amazing?! 🍎 . #artbysharell #outsideisfree #hikemoreworryless #mountainlove #lessismuir #mountainlover #wildernessvibes #creativehabit #mountainsplease #mountainart #mountainchick #mountainvibes #mountainculture #mountainpainting #mountainartist #mountaingirl #themountainsarecalling #exploretocreate #naturedesign #natureismagic #mountainside #mountaintop #mountainscape #mountainporn #natureisrad #naturevibes #natureislove #natureismagic #natureisthebest
Dear Wild Self, Making space for the conversations under the stars, legs swinging inches above the ground as time feels irrelevant and the storing and stuffing and stirring of thoughts settle into a cool pool, where the only thing reflecting back at you, is you. You and those specks of light part of something much bigger than this. What if what I have to offer isn’t enough for a world so big, so messy, so swallowed up by to do’s that the conversations under these stars with legs swinging and hearts full, feel too small and unmatched next to the action we must take if we wish to keep on bettering. Bettering our communities through advocacy, voice, and tireless dedication, even if that means getting uncomfortable. Bettering the world through mindful action, a collective concern, and selfless acts of love. And bettering the wild self as curiosity takes over, shoes are removed, and the harshness and urgency, even if only for a moment, fades away into the speckled light above and cooling sand between our toes #morethanlyme 📷 @adammckibben
Inglewood Night Market, YYC 📍 COUPON ALERT (see end of post) • Believe it or not, grace + gravity has been a big and scary project for me. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone so many times, and tonight is no exception. Tonight I am a vendor in my first ever market – @inglewoodnightmarketyyc !! I am BEYOND nervous, I pulled an all-nighter in preparation, and I am so excited to share my malas and these cheeky shirts and sweaters with #YYC . Gather up your mittens, your thermos of hot chocolate and your friends, and come say hi!! 5-11 pm tonight (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday)! • For those of you in Calgary: if you can’t make it down to the market (or you’re just not brave enough to come out in the cold) – use coupon code “YYCSHIP” on my website and I will deliver your online orders anywhere in Calgary FOR FREE next week! 👏🏻💸 Save your shipping dollars for other fun things!! Now until Sept. 30th.
I’ve always wondered why this place was called Garden of the Gods. So, like a good millennial, I consulted the Google machine… . “It was August of 1859 when two surveyors started out from Denver City to begin a townsite, soon to be called Colorado City. While exploring nearby locations, they came upon a beautiful area of sandstone formations. M. S. Beach, who related this incident, suggested that it would be a "capital place for a beer garden" when the country grew up. His companion, Rufus Cable, a "young and poetic man", exclaimed, "Beer Garden! Why it is a fit place for the Gods to assemble. We will call it the Garden of the Gods." It has been so called ever since.”

Another fun day clearing trails in the Gorge with TKO! Reminder: these trails are CLOSED. We had special permission from the USFS to be in the area.

Grand Teton National Park is a sunrise park. The Tetons are on the west side of the valley, and the morning light can create magical views that can be seen from most of the park. Come here before dawn to get the most perfect mirror reflections of the Tetons or come here any time for the beauty and wildlife habitat. || Words and photo by Contributor @denis.p.leblanc #findyouradventure #lessismuir #tetons #choosemountains

“Fall in love with someone who tastes like adventure but looks like the calm, beautiful morning after a terrible storm.” #NikitaGill It’s undecided if adventure is my sanity or my madness.....nevertheless I’m completely in love...... . . . . #pnwlife #pnwcreatives #pnwcollective #adventureenthusiasts #exploretocreate #roamtheplanet #greettheoutdoors #adventureawaits #liveauthentic #awakethesoul #collectivelycreate #neverstopexploring #lessismuir #wondermore #wandermore #adventure_culture #folkgood #exploremore #optoutside #blondeadventures #soloadventures #createexplore #lifeofadventure #neverstopexploring #northwestisbest

I’ve always enjoyed writing about the moon. About the moon and the color of the sky when it sinks below the branches, cradled by the row of juniper trees. I’ve always enjoyed writing about the moon. About how it will sometimes join me for my morning coffee, sleepily tucking itself into the blue sheets and dark sky found just beyond our horizon. I’ve always enjoyed writing about the moon. About how it’s presence, so soft and nurturing while also being cool and refreshing, warms me right up. I imagine holding it in my hand like a marble: it, reflecting the universe back at me, and myself, all wide eyed and in awe of everything I don’t and might not ever know. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve neglected our friendship and my love letters to you, moon, for a good six months now. Not that I’ve wanted to, or have loved you any less, it’s simply just too easy to prioritize the wrong things. To make busy where busy is not needed, or wanted, or does anyone any good. Like early in the morning, before the neighbor cat has stretched its legs, birds have fluffed their feathers, and I, just rolling out of bed, have placed the first thought in my head #morethanlyme
"How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains! To behold this alone is worth the pains of any excursion a thousand times over. The highest peaks burned like islands in a sea of liquid shade. Then the lower peaks and spires caught the glow, and long lances of light, streaming through many a notch and pass, fell thick on the frozen meadows."- John Muir, from ''John of the Mountains," (1938) . . . . #ourlands #protectourpubliclands #smokeythebear #lessismuir #johnmuirquotes #buslife #tinyliving #offgrid #coolhat #nationalparks #outdoorliving #girlsthatwander

The smoke makes some excellent sunbeams ☀️☀️☀️
“Be loyal to your own madness and know another is looking for it.” #JmStorm I adore feeling small...surrounded by so many things that could harm me, yet here I am; a bundle of madness consumed by the urge to see and feel everything with every ounce of my being...to do it wholeheartedly, explaining myself to no one..... . . . . #pnwlife #adventure_culture #adventureawaits #adventurenthusiasts #collectivelycreate #peoplewhoadventure #nomadstories #northwestisbest #adventureislife #optoutside #neverstopexploring #adventurethatislife #stayandwander #folkgood #earthfocus #lifeofadventure #artofvisuals #upperleftusa #wildernessculture #vancityhype #thenwadventure #lessismuir #awakethesoul #visualscollective #amongthewild #collectivelynorthwest #nrthwst #wondermore #gooutsideandplay
It’s never too early to become a #craftbeer lover #silvergulch #fairbanks #alaska
This weekend was one of the best I’ve ever had. I am so dang spoiled by my husband and I couldn’t be more thankful for him! This is a shot of the stars I took on our last night of our long weekend. We sat out there till about 2AM listening to the coyotes and watching the stars. I love my husband!!
I can talk about the features and benefits of our trailer until I'm blue in the face, and nothing impresses people more than the fact that the 65L @YETI is included in the cost of purchase. pc: @dylan.h.brown #teardroptrailer #freetoroam #borninutah #bredforadventure #adventureseeker #goexplore #teardropcamper #keepitwild #ventureout #livewild #lifeontheedge #beautahful #offroadtrailer #overlanding #adventurevisuals #lessismuir #modernoutdoors #wanderout #neverstopexploring #travelstoke #utahisrad #liveyouradventure
