One of my favorite sounds is the jangle of gear while approaching an objective. That, and the pinging of talus as your weight sends shards skittering down a slope. - Words and photo by @brooklynwarren Image Description: human in a green jacket with trad gear hanging off of climbing harness.

Thank you to everyone for all the lovely birthday wishes from around the globe last week. I feel really lucky to have so many special people in my life both near and far, but always close to my heart. ❄❄❄ In the last 6 years I have lived in about 8 different cities around the world. It sounds exotic, and most of the time it is truly incredible, but it can also be really lonely and challenging. My newfound friends in Innsbruck have welcomed me with open arms and open hearts, and have made my time here in the stunning but unfamiliar Alps so much easier and enjoyable. I have written a blog post about my rather random experiences in the past year - you can find the link in my bio. 🌲🌲🌲 Anyways, last weekend was super fun - I celebrated my 29th birthday in a mountain hut with some of my favourite people in the Alps. Now, Innsbruck is providing me a beautiful farewell week with its first snowfall in the city, before I venture home to recover in the sun with my hometown friends for a few months. ☀️☀️☀️ Pics taken on phone #galaxys7
Hi. I'm Jen 👋 (and this is Siula 🐾). There are new faces around here so let’s do some introductions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a nutshell, I teach people how to manage their emotions. This is important because emotions are humanity's secret weapon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Emotions like fear, guilt and shame can cripple us. But emotions like love, vulnerability and gratitude, especially when combined with values like kindness and integrity, can move mountains. 🏔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The world right now needs empowered people who can harness their emotions to get some real good shit done; it needs leaders. Good, strong, ethical leaders. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You don't have to run a company to be a leader. Or be a manager. Or a politician. Or have a huge following on Instagram. If you have even just one person looking to you as an example then you are a leader. And as human beings we look to everyone around us as examples. You could be a parent, a friend, a teacher, a friend, a brother, a sister, an instructor, an aunty, an uncle, a neighbour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And so I also teach leadership. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I teach personal leadership to individuals; I have a blog for women in the outdoors and some great free resoures on my site. And in 2019 I have one-to-one coaching coming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I teach corporate leadership to organisations. I work with teams and executives and teach them exactly the same principles as I teach individuals; emotions and values. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐️AND what I would really like now is for you to tell me who you are! Introduce yourself and tell me where in your life you have people following you.⭐️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS- If you are a mountain-woman, or want to be, I have a free guide to the first steps for learning to manage your emotions; link is in my bio #adventureMINDSET
Smile and enjoy the climb! 😀

It’s #nationalmountainday and can I tell you guys how much I love mountains ? For the past two years, I have been exploring them more and more. I found how much peace and connection I find in them. The beauty. The ruggedness. The up and down of the terrain. The being on top then climbing back down to only climb up again. I felt like it represented my life. Mountains get to me to keep pushing outside my comfort zone. They give perspective in the midst of anxiety and depression. They give me something to strive for. They remind me to keep going. I freaking love mountains.
Happy International Mountain Day! Pic from the summit of what is, and always will be, my favorite 14er, Mt. Rainier ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ He who climbs upon the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary. ― Friedrich Neitszche ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Mountains have been so many things for me, I hardly know where to begin. They have been a source of comfort and growth. They have challenged me, humbled me, broken me a skosh, built me, and put many things in perspective. There’s something about feeling truly small and insignificant that helps one realize the important things in life. May your mountains, be they literal or figurative, bring you growth and understanding ❤️ Happy trails and happy international mountain day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #internationalmountainday #mountainwomen #womenwhohike #girlswhohike #whyihike #mountainwoman #womenwhowander #hike #badasshikingwomen #herpnwlife #wild #leaveherwild #winter #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #14ers #mtrainier #mtrainierwatch #trailtuesday

Happy International Mountain Day! Mountains do so much for us that we don’t even realize. We need to do more to protect them and the wildlife that call them home. #mountainsmatter * * * #adk #adirondacks #adks #mountians #adventure #exploreadk #explore #adklife #liveadk #dacklife #mountainwomen #womenwhohike #hike #hikeadk #adkhike #adirondackmountains #46er #46highpeaks #iloveny #scenicny #wanderlust #macomb #dix #elementalescape #internationalmountainday #mountainday

Since my father passed away, owls have appeared to me rather regularly. Any time I'm feeling low or something terrible has happened, they show up. Shortly after he passed away, I was leaving my mom's. Driving up Wolfpen Mountain, and in the middle of the day, an owl flew beside my car window for several hundred feet. Not to get too sappy but it brought tears to my eyes. This owl was sitting on a road sign the other night as I was driving up the holler. I stopped and took a picture. I had a snow day over the weekend and started this painting. I'm very happy with it so far.
Not art related but posting because I’ll be Tennessee bound in a week.. my heart feels like it’s going to burst ❤️
The Sun and the Moon Aim for a love that reminds you of the devotion the sun has to the moon. Whether she is in fractions or she is whole, he still shrouds his intense light in the darkness of the night. To give her the entire sky, without judgment, so she can shine in any way she wants to. You deserve someone  who adores you  on the days you are  in broken fragments too. You deserve someone who lets you glow in every way you need to. #kootenaylife #chasingwaterfalls #waterfall #exploring #outdoorwomen #choosemountainswomen #mountainwomen #mountainlife #backcountry #purcellmountains #hiking #wildernessbabes #womenwhoexplore #naturetherapy #wildwomen #staywild #getoutside #lovequotes

From @being.ourselves - Free yourself from all the worries and jump😍 This lake is one of the breathtaking lake in India. The famous and sparkling blue lake is situated at a height of 4350 metres and is one of the most visited places in India. It has gained significant popularity after a few Bollywood shoots like #3idiots #jabtakhaijaan and many more . . . . . . . #ladakhdiaries #ladakh #leh #pangonglake #pangong #instatraveltribe #pangongtso #travellingindia #discover_india #travellinggirl #girlsthatwander #target200tripstogether #wetravel #jumps #incredibleindiaofficial #bbctravel #indiatravel #travelindia #indiaunexplored #mountainwomen #breezy #sheexplores #qoqsquad - #regrann

Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. Then, when you're no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn't just a means to an end but a unique event in itself....To live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountains which sustain life, not the top. Robert M. Pirsig San Lorenzo in southern Patagonia. So many lessons learned here. The mountains always give back the same kind of energy and attention you bring to them. Best to go to the mountains walking with humility and with the willingness to listen to what the wilderness has to tell you - otherwise, if you try and force yourself on the mountains, they’ll force themselves on you and the mountain will always win. #outdoorwomen #guidelikeagirl #optoutside #theoutbound #climb_girls #climblikeagirl #flashyfoxy #climbing #rockclimbers #radgirls #radgirlscollective #mountainbabes #radgirlslife #mountaingirls #mountainwomen #prettystrong #strongwomen #noexcuses #neverstopexploring #wildernessculture #andshesdopetoo #sheadventures #forceofnature #womeninthewild #liveclimbrepeat #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #dirtbagdarling #liveyouradventure #girlswhoclimb
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” ― John Muir, The Mountains of California 📸: @lamargphoto #northwestwomen #pacificnorthwest #coldwaterlake #mountsainthelens #nwmountains #mountainwomen #outdoorlife #coldaf #staychilly #witchy #portlandoregon

. “MURKY AIR” 12•09•18
Erin Moynihan is not only an incredible @womenofcolorado events supporter, she is an inspiration to women beer brewers everywhere! After learning to brew from her cousins, she decided to take the leap of faith & moved to Colorado to pursue her dream of being a beer brewer at the well-known Eddyline Brewing in Buena Vista. Although she has faced adversity being a female in a male dominated industry, she excels at keeping her attitude positive & her mindset limitless. The friendships she's made, the knowledge she's gained & the non-traditional work atmosphere keep her motivated and falling in love with her craft more & more each day. Erin knows that in order to thrive in anything, you need to immerse yourself in learning & to love what you do! She's hooked us up with beer flights & brewery tours, we couldn't be more grateful for her stoke & passion for uniting rad ladies over a tasty pint. Read more about Erin's journey to successful pursuits in Colorado beer brewing culture within the first post of our "Women Who Inspire" interviews on the @womenofcolorado blog. Head to www.womenofcolorado.co, scroll down and click "Blog," and be sure check out what Erin is up to at @brewsandshrews on Instagram & Facebook. We already can't wait to visit her for our Bloody Mary, Beer & Brunch activity at @eddylinebrewery during our upcoming Winter retreat February 1-3! There are only three spots left, so come hang with us & find out why we chose to interview Erin for being such an inspiration! #womenofcolorado #womenbrewingbeer ❤️💛💙Repost @erromoy ⠀ ・・・⠀ For hikers in Colorado, it’s a right of passage to summit your first 14er. ⠀ Feeling like a Coloradan ♥️ ⛰ ⠀ Quandary Peak 14,265 ft. .#ipeaked #myfirstfourteener ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #mountainview #mountaintop #mountainlove #mountainlife #mountains #craftbeer #drinkbeer #womenbrewers #womeninbeer #mountainwomen #beerdrinking

Fun with ropes with @outdoor_matters for our top access tidal validation day. Creating pulleys with different systems for assisted and unassisted rescues. We even managed to find some sheltered spots from the weather. but we can all be good in good weather right? This was definitely more realistic for likely scenarios of when things go wrong.

I took this photo with our @DriftwoodAdventureTreks group during our descent back down the Lukla Valley from 18,500'. # I remember gazing at these mountains for hours on end, softly placing one foot in front of the other, breathing deeply and steadily; face and fingers tingling, feeling invigoratingly alive as cold, thin air was warmed by lungs. # It was a privilege and a gift to take in the Himalayas with all of my senses. # I promised these sacred mountains that I would do everything I could to express the sense of humility, awe, and wonder it filled me with to immerse myself in them. I remember taking this photo as a seal to that promise. # And in that moment, something hit me: after all of the time I had invested in training for the ascent, this was the first time I was really considering the emotional and spiritual implications of the descent, the reintegration. # Coming to this realization in the midst of such a stunning backdrop, with a heart fully open and unguarded, brought me to my knees. I remember hugging my group and letting out a cry as if it were to be echoed back from the mountains, and my fellow trekkers holding me up as my knees gave way from underneath me. It probably only lasted a few seconds, yet it felt like an entire lifetime flooded through me in this moment. . # After spending my first four years of learning to navigate the outdoors as a lone wolf, it was here where I really began to understand how much more enriching it could be to experience the mountains in the companionship of friends across cultures, old and new. This newfound perspective of experiencing mountains seemed to echo the totality of life itself. # Following that spellbinding moment, an eagle soared overhead, blessing us with the gift of perspective and effortless grace. # My heart was set free again. 🦅🏹

She’s back! 🙌🏻 . ✅ Ultra-marathon runner⠀ ✅ Watermelon lover⠀ ✅ 3rd place finisher at #WSER100 💪🏻 . The fab Lucy Bartholomew (@lucy_bartholomew ) returns to #SpartaChicksRadio this week! 👏🏻 . Lucy was on the podcast back in January to talk about her background & how she got into running as a way to spend time with her Dad. . This time we talk about how 2018 unfolded - including her incredible race at @wser ; one of the world’s most prestigious 100mi (160km) races. . Lucy titled her blog post about the race “Show Up, Blow Up, Grow Up’ - I find out why! . Also, #spoileralert - Lucy finished 3rd at WSER this year; an extraordinary performance for someone so young, and racing that distance for the first time, against the best in the world. The future is bright! . Plus it’s fantastic to see Lucy being recognised by the wider (non-running) community; she won the coveted “One to Watch’ award at the 2018 @womenshealthaus ‘Women in Sport’ awards in October 🙌🏻👏🏻 .

"On difficult days, when the world's on your shoulders, remember that diamonds are made under the weight of mountains." @beautaplin
Being in the Jarbidge Wilderness for 5 months taught me one very valuable lesson: In the midst of your busy work, don't forget to look up, take a breath, and realize where you are, what you are doing, and if you are truly happy doing it. • Most of you don't realize that only the last part of that statement truly matters. Make sure you are truly HAPPY doing what you are doing, in the moment. It doesn't matter if you are happy in an hour or days or months, if you are happy in the exact moment you are doing whatever you are doing.... Then you ARE doing the right thing. Make happiness come easy. You shouldn't have to work for it. 🤘 . . #wildlifephotography #adventureenthusiasts #climbmountains #behappy #goodtimes #mountainwomen #adventureon #donthavetotravelfar

“Everybody wants to reach the peak, but there is no growth on the top of a mountain. It is in the valley that we slog through the lush grass and rich soil, learning and becoming what enables us to summit life’s next peak.” -Andy Andrews I am down guiding in southern Patagonia and this experience really has been one of growth, of challenges, and of change. I am still reflecting on the process, the lessons learned, the things taken from the mountain, and the things left behind. More to follow but I am grateful, as always, to have had the opportunity to learn, love, and be humbled by the mountains. #outdoorwomen #guidelikeagirl #optoutside #theoutbound #climb_girls #climblikeagirl #radgirls #radgirlscollective #mountainbabes #radgirlslife #mountaingirls #mountainwomen #prettystrong #strongwomen #noexcuses #neverstopexploring #wildernessculture #andshesdopetoo #sheadventures #forceofnature #womeninthewild #liveclimbrepeat #patagonia #optoutside #welivetoexplore

Can't feel my hands, but that's Everest baby! Some knowledge for you: the mountain was named Sagarmatha (goddess of the sky) by the Nepalis and Chomolungma by the Tibetans long before the English renamed her in 1865 🚩
