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. 🙀 ]
Can you spot @richmond19
?? Really puts the size of this place into perspective!
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.

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!
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
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... 😭🏕
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
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?

Had the opportunity to take @beccasunflower
on her first backpacking trip in Colorado and it was spectacular!
Missing this cold water today. 🌿🌞🏊♂️
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…

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.

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!
Looks magical covered in snow.
