There is no greater joy, no freer feeling, than looking at these mountains, and being reminded of how tiny I am, and how incredibly powerful this world is. My soul smells permanently of fresh pine and clean water, and I am always reminded that this is what it feels like, to truly be alive 💖
Love a good jump shot.
Nappstraumen 💛 Etter å ha kjørt rundt Skottind fram og tilbake hele dagen, var det fint å avslutte kvelden med en tur til toppen 💛 #liveterbestute i #lofoten #mittlofoten #mittnordnorge #mittnorge #mittlekeland 📸 @jannepkarlsen
My sweetest Grandfather, It’s been one year since you’ve passed and in that time I’ve seen and done so much. I like to believe you’re hanging out in the golden rays of light or following behind me when I come upon breathtaking views. I like to believe you’re present in every beautiful aspect of nature. The pain has lessened but not disappeared; I am learning to find peace in moments of sorrow. I had a beautiful 28 years with you and for that I will always be grateful. Love you always, your Chelseabean ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 📷: @whileholdingcoffee (my edits)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #amongthewild #howloften #mtnchicks #peoplewhoadventure #trekkingtoes #peoplewhohike #adventureenthusiasts #adventurefreaks #neverstopexploring #in2nature #idratherbeinnature #everytrailconnects #hikersofinstagram #outside_project #hikingculture #wildernessnation #visitcalifornia #yosemite #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #mountaingirls #wwhmember #outdoorbella #getoutside #halfdome #outdoorenthusiast #gregorypacks #WeAreLimitless #likeamountaingirl #hike
There is nothing more refreshing than taking a dip in a glacial lake after a hike in the hot sun ☀️ thanks @hajospaethe for this lovely photo!
“The mountain speaks of resilience- the toughness of life, the fragility of lives. It speaks of permanence and transience, of what endures and what passes away. It speaks of the beauty and insistence of natural processes that, given time, bring the mountain back to life”-Charles Goodwin #mtsthelens #eruption #lifeisshort #lifegoeson
How often are we told that the prize is in the journey and not just the destination. But when you go on long roadtrips, the destination becomes the journey! The road trip to Spiti was definitely a moving kaleidoscope of colors. Lush greens, Bright skies, mountains in distance.. To Cold desert lands, solemn skies and being one with the Himalayas! . This was the former. :) . #himgeo #himalayasarecalling #instahimachal #himalayan_navigators #himalayangeographic #hippieinhills #mtnchicks #indiaphotosociety #desi_diaries #travelblogger #travelersnotebook #travel #CNTGiveItAShot #natgeotravellerindia #incrediblespiti #nomadsofindia #nomadsofspiti #himachalpictures #himalayan_girls #himalayasin #indiatravelgram #travelgram #india_undiscovered #indiaclicks #doyoutravel #tlpicks #potd #agameoftones #tripoto @tripotocommunity @cntravellerindia @bbc_travel

Can't wait to be an experienced enough hiker to hike my way out of cell reception one day.

I’m back! Accidentally took a little break from posting here on @instagram via killing all of my electronics. But I’m back in action! I’ve been on some crazy adventures lately from hiking in the alpine to cruisin the coastline and everything in between. I can’t wait to share it with you all. This summer is shaping up quite well, especially now that I’m back on my feet! Here’s to summer on VanIsle! Cheers friends.
A few weeks ago, one of my favorite grammers @local_milk wrote, "the question to ask yourself is: are the problems in my life symptoms of my dreams coming true or not?" Man, was that a powerful thing to hear as I was in the midst of what felt like my hundredth meltdown of the day. This summer has been the busiest of my life so far. Between a new job, wedding planning, moving, travel, blogging and social obligations, I've felt seriously overwhelmed. But when I really stopped to think about it, every single one of my problems stems from my dreams coming true (well, besides my chronically messy apartment). I'm finally working a job I love, I'm marrying the man of my dreams, I get to travel, I have amazing friends, I'm moving closer to my job and where Topher got accepted to school, I'm getting to blog and lead trips - my life is really, really good right now. Also, vv busy, but the busy is worth it. Last week I was dreading going on this hut trip because there was so much to do between moving and wedding planning. But then, I was doing sunrise yoga in the middle of the woods surrounded by amazing women and I remembered just how much I love my life. A little altitude does wonders for your attitude.
Journal entry from a few days ago: “I’m thinking about all the things i am so so grateful for today, and it’s a good day, and it feels amazing and the weather is perfect and there’s a cool breeze and the flowers are blooming and the aspens are doing their loud whispering thing and everything just feels perfect.” . It’s not always like that. I’m currently writing a short piece on all the difficult and trying things about a long distance hike. I can’t work on it too consistently though, because I don’t want to focus too much on the negative aspects of things, especially when they’re so loud at times. Long distance hiking is just as much of a mental game as a physical one. Getting ready to hit the trail in the morning... . #mountaingirls #mtnchicks #getafterit #getoutstayout #traillife #backpacking #adventure #getoutside #coloradical #colorado #coloradotrail #thruhike #longdistancehiking #andshesdopetoo #womenwhohike #optoutside #altra #mountains
Up and up and up we go! Once you reach the clouds make a sharp left. Valley views await!
Gotta put my camera on a timer coz my hiking buddy today is only a fur ball. Just a quick one today, only an hour and a bit long.
Over the river and through the woods to mountain adventures we go 📷 @sudsymack
“lucia, do you love me? are you hiking? say you’ll neva eva leave from beside me..” - drakes original lyrics, probably. one thing to know about me is I don’t stick to a specific genre of music. I honestly like it all, and I like that about myself. except some pop-country music. sorry florida-georgia line, I will never understand ya. K byeeeeeeee.
This Thursday I’m waking up well before the crack of dawn (and definitely before Everett is even remotely awake) to head down to one of my favorite national forests: The San Juans •••••• I’ve been planning this trip since the first of the year and it’s FINALLY coming to fruition. It’s a birthday gift to myself to have some time away in the mountains. This trip, honestly, couldn’t have come at a better time either •••••• So I’ll be spending my birthday weekend checking off two bucket list hikes. One is to Ice/Island Lake - some of the bluest (and greenest for that matter) water in the state! And the second is the famed Telluride Via Ferrata where I’ll be hanging by a cliff with the other adventurous ladies!! •••••• This is all thanks to the @mtnchicks family - I never would’ve known so many other badass, outdoorsy women as I do because of this community #mtnchicksdoitbetter #WeAreLimitless •••••• #womenempoweringwomen #womenintheoutdoors #outdoorwomen #mtnchicks #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #womenwhoadventure #takeonmoreadventures #adventures #adventuresinthemountains #hiking #hikingtherockies #coloRADo #epictrails #bucketlisthikes

Dog days of summer ☀️
When you realize mountain weather systems and changes are the real deal. Moments later the skies cleared to highlight the most amazing canvas Mother Nature could offer. Thankful for mountain friends who push me to be able to experience these amazing feats! (Also, an equally amazing tidbit was the fact we could now see that we weren’t accidentally stumbling over a 2100 meter mountain face after the fog subsided)! #dreamteam #mountaingoats
Today marks one year, my dear, of knowing you’re beautiful heart and your awesome soul. You were my first in so many ways!! First time at the Mountain Rambler Brewery🍻 First time in the Buttermilks⛰ First time my feet touched June Lake💦 First time seeing the sunset from Hetch Hetchy🌙 First time exploring Yosemite😍 First time (in many years) that I was reminded of what real love looked like in just a week of knowing one another💚 You’ve changed my life for the better. ‘Nuff said. Love you, friend!

My favorite part of summer -- give me all the alpine lakes. 💙 ________________________________________ Wearing July outfit ((the Atria)) by @fabletics . The leggings especially have quickly become my absolute favorite. So much so, I even purchased them myself in a different color in addition to my gifted outfit. ((Hello Shadow)) They're super thick, high-waisted, supportive, flattering, and lifting in all of the right places. The leggings alone are the High-Waisted Mesh PowerHold Capri shown in black. PS Don't mind the dirty backside -- if you care to know, they are fall proof and even the sharpest rocks didn't tear them.

Is it the weekend yet??!! ☀️🙃 . . #optoutside #getoutside #forceofnature #mtnchicks #sheadventures #summertime
Taken deep in the rainforest of East Maui on what was probably the rainiest day of the year! Seriously got soaked, but the rain and mist made the forest seem all the more mysterious.
Road tripping from Virginia to Acadia National Park this summer was the best decision. Driving up Cadillac Mountain to the highest peak in park, instead of hiking it, was also a great plan. What’s the fun of hiking to a summit that everyone else reaches by car? ⛰/ #CadillacMountain
I officially started LIIFT4 yesterday, but here’s my accountability post to see how my body changes in the next 8 weeks! 💥🥑🥦🍇🍉🌶🥔🥕I’m pairing the workouts with the 2B mindset nutrition plan!! I am thrilled to get started. It’s also so fun to be starting this program with so many other ladies! If you have any interest in joining it’s not to late message me to get started! 🖤💙 . Also it feels really freaking good to feel good in my before pictures! 👏🏻☺️ . . . . . . . . . . #girlwithgoals #fitgirl #sweatyselfie #healthyhabits #morningmovement #motivation #morningworkouts #happyhealthyhumble #selflove #grateful #noexcuses #hustle #muscle #balance #mtnbabes #mtnchicks #yourbestyoufcf #mountaingirls #homeworkouts #2018 #yoga #yogi #vermont #vt #burlington #greenmtnfit #selflove
Dying laughing right after hitting Becca with my blue @salomon dildo bottle. Check my story 😂😂😂

Moments like this are what make my life worth living, being outside is how I cope with my fears and anxiety. I’ve spent my entire life dealing with anxiety. Maybe I was born with it, maybe it’s genetic but I mostly think it was learned in my upbringing. Having my voice be suppressed, being responsible for other people’s happiness - being torn in different directions with divorced parents, maybe it was abandonment that set off the anxiety. But here I am - I’ve made it through 27 years of a colorful, beautiful, unimaginable life of mine. I’ve had low moments, and high ones, but what I’ve come to realize is that anxiety is maintenance. It never goes away and you can only learn to make the choice to understand and retrain the brain. But then there’s not only anxiety but self consciousness and depression, allowing others ideas or made up ideas to rule over your own worth because it’s too scary to believe your worth anything. Too afraid to chase what may make you uncomfortable.... How do you convince others that are swallowed in anxiety and self consciousness to take a chance on themselves? The thing is - you can’t, only they can, and with that I remember having control does not exist. Thoughts on my mind this evening. It’s not always rainbows and butterfly’s. ✨ . . . #theoutbound #simplyadventure #lastbestplace #earthexperience #sunrise_madness #camptrend #msr #backpacking #adventurenthusiasts #takemoreadventures #mtnchicks #mountaingirls #alpenglow #travelstoke #getoutstayout #optoutside #forceofnature #ambassador #neverstopexploring #exploretocreate #ourcamplife #thetentcommandments #passionpassport #amongthewild #womenwhohike #shewentwild #staywild #allaboutadventures #wildernessculture
Me to Nature: I’ll trade you ten miles for a castle. Nature: Throw in mosquitos, weather, and fishing for your dinner, and you have a deal. #sold #fitforreallife

Thanks to my friend @jmsmlr for asking me to be a part of it! ⛰Don’t forget to tag @my.kananaskis or use the hashtags #mykananaskis or #mykcountry to be featured! ✌🏼 📷 @thana4yyc
Kananaskis summits enjoyed with the best of friends and ending with a soak in the warm springs was what this girl needed last weekend ❤️ #kananaskis
Detour out to Annapolis Valley for a quick stop to see a college roomie... sweet camp spot, red rock beaches, brewery after winery after distillery after more breweries, and a wild ride down the Gasperau River river. We relived some past time shenanigans by taking SUPs down a fast flowing river with many dip netting obstacles... it was a great adventure to say the least 😁🚣‍♀️
When it’s 💯 degrees.. I would rather be here..
These are the plants my mom came over and potted 🌺 for me because I suck at any type of landscaping. Plus this is the kind of stuff moms just do. 💐When she moved out of our childhood home, she gave me her beloved 💗planters and I will forever have something beautiful in them. It’s my Mom’s Birthday today and I haven’t been able to get in touch with her yet so I’m a bit sad. 😥 But at least seeing her beautiful gift this morning made me extra grateful. Everyday I think of what she battled with her horrible cancer illness. I promised 🙏myself that her fight wouldn’t go for nothing which is why I strive everyday to be proactive about my health and share that gift 🎁 with others. I love you mom! 💕

Finding the beauty 😊😊😊 #mountainbeauty #coloradowildflowers
These wonderful days of summer are slowly crawling by with me sitting at home studying. I did expect to have significantly less adventure days during Nursing School, but I can’t say I’m happy about it. Sitting inside day after day has created a feeling of stagnation. Regardless of the fact that I am constantly learning, I feel as though I am getting nowhere. It’s discouraging. As I flipped though pictures of the Grand Canyon in Lightroom last night, I suddenly was not as discouraged by my feeling of lack of progress and gained comfort in knowing that the places I’ve visited are still teaching me. The Grand Canyon, in all its amazing glory, was not created over night. It patiently waited through millions of years of run off and erosion to be its grand self. It’s comforting to know that despite taking time for me to reach my goals, I’m getting there. Perhaps slowly, but definitely surely. . . #hike #hikearizona #optoutside #forceofnature #52hikechallenge #womenwhohike #wwhmember #mtnchicks #girlswhohike #gcnp #grandcanyon #hikemoreworryless #betheadventure #adventure #natgeoyourshot #todsl #choosemountains #freshair #tourtheplanet #wearethewild #humanpoweredadventures #canonrebelt6 #exploremore #themountainsarecalling

feet on the ground, head in the clouds🌤✨ • Do you ever wish for more time to do all the things, accomplish all your goals and travel all the places?🙋🏼‍♀️ • In the fast pace of life take a step back and breathe. Take each day at a time, cross the items off, and find beauty in every moment💛 • But while we’re on the subject - what’s next on your bucket list?! 🔎✈️🗺🏝🌏
THE GRIND is definitely not pretty. All willpower getting me to the peak & pretty much relying on gravity to carry me down. A surprise view of my family at the beginning & Stone running after me with flowers to the finish made all that hurt #worthit . Knowing what I was getting myself into this time helped a lot. 🏆2nd Pro at the @cirqueseries Alta made for an exciting and painful, yet beautiful start to the weekend. Thank you for such an amazing event! Your support crew, sponsors & organization are absolutely stellar. Thank you @runnerscornerutah for the continued support & coolest family of a team. Thankyou @altrarunning for making shoes that can take the worst of it, even if I put a beating on them & tear them up. Thank you to all of my friends, family & all of you that support me in my running & keep me going from race to race. If there is something you have been dying to go see what you can do, get after it already!👊🏼 #zerolimits #runfast #runstrong #epictrailrunning #trailchix #pushpeaks #eatthatpeak #pushindirt #runtolive #livetorun #thegrind #peakbaggers #runnerscornerutah #RCelite #runUtahrun #adventuremamas #optoutside #mtnchicks #andshesdopetoo #Utahtrailrunners 📸: @gregbevacqua @cascadia22
In case anyone is curious, the road to Blanca lake is totally snowed in. It’s still a beautiful snowshoe trek though. #pnwonderland #pnwonderdogs #earthday #lifeofatravelingwoman #optoutside #mtnchicks
