#mcaday24 - Today was a hard one... filled with self doubt and self criticism... I HAD to get out in nature!! It's the first cycle I've had since I left the UK, where I haven't been living an outdoor lifestyle and wow!! Did I feel the walls closing in on me! Don't get me wrong, I'm sooo grateful to have this beautiful apartment and everything on our doorstep but the way I felt today, has confirmed to me even more that it's the rural, outdoor lifestyle that appeals to me! It's the only thing that resets, grounds and puts everything back into perspective for me... NATURE! β€οΈπŸƒπŸŒ»πŸŒˆπŸŒžπŸŒ΄βœ¨ Give me a modest, outdoor living space over a swanky city apartment ANYDAY!! And this 'city' is a beautiful one... it's smaller than our hometown, surrounded with breathtaking national parks, peaceful nature reserves, stunning coastlines and out of this world sunsets πŸŒ…β€οΈπŸ˜... but even with all of that, it still feels too detached from nature for me. I need to be woken up by the sounds of birds singing, to be able to earth my feet each morning, to breathe fresh air and to bathe in chemical free water! I miss the sounds of the crickets and geckos at night, the fruit bats squawking over who's going to have what tree, being able to sit out under the Milky Way in your own back garden. On this mad, fast paced, whirlwind of a planet those are the things that keep me sane. Thankfully, I do have peace of mind knowing I will have those things again... but today was a little reminder from the universe that closed walls and hormones are not a good mix for a free spirit such as myself. βœ¨πŸŒ…πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸŒ“πŸŒˆπŸŒ» #menstrualcycleawareness #natureismytherapy #nofilter
Beautiful Kondolilla Falls. πŸ’š The Sweet Sound of Water Is So Soothing & Enchanting. How Blessed We Are To Have Mother Earth As Our Home. 🌍 The Australian Indigenous Tribes called These Falls Kondolilla Meaning Running Water & Had A Great Connection To The Water Spirits That Protected & Wondered This Area. #kondolillafalls #montville #hinterland #sunshinecoast #waterfalls #mystical #beautiful #magical #soothing #waterspirits #grounding #natureisspeaking #naturesgifts #naturelover #natureismytherapy #natureismyreligion #natureismytemple #natureismychurch #natureseeker #roadtrips #roadtripping #queensland #australia
I may have triple booked myself yesterday but I'm still thankful for a lovely yoga session, an amazing walk in nature, and the brain power to put the last finishing touches to my mindful foraging workshop that I'll be hosting at the @creativecountryside autumn gathering next month. And to think I woke up feeling a tad under the weather. πŸ’š I can't tell you how good it is for you to get outside! #getoutside #woodlands #whpseasons #whpmood #whpfindthelight #slow #slowliving #slowdown #greenery #walking #nature #natureismytherapy #lovinglife #visitwales #ceiriogvalley #welshvalleys #seasonal

Aquilegia formosa produces distinctive, red and yellow flowers, sometimes several dozen per plant. Blooms are pendant, hanging down from the tip of the stems, and consist of five red, lance-shaped sepals pointing outwards or slightly recurved, between which, at right angles, are five thin, conical petals, mostly red but yellow at the open end. The far end is closed, and extends backwards as a spur. Many greenish-yellow stamens project from inside the cone. The nectar is located at the inner tip of the spurs, and so the flowers attract pollinators such as humming birds. The plant has a wide distribution, from Alaska to Utah, favoring moist, woodland environments. #mtsthelens #apecanyon #hiking #hikingadventures #hiking πŸ‘£ #hiking 🌲 #hiking_daily #hiking_hobby #hikingtrails #hikingculture #hikinglife #giffordpinchot #cougar #hikingwashington #nature #pdx #pdxphotographer #adventureswithdad #fathersontime #mysonismyworld #mysonismyworld #lovethelifeyoulive #livethelifeyoulove #natureismychurch #natureisamazing #natureismytherapy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #ptsdawareness #ptsd

Once you reach Ape Canyon there were breathtaking views of fellow cascade volcano Mount Adams, known by some Native American tribes as Pahto or Klickitat, is a potentially active stratovolcano in the Cascade Range. Although Adams has not erupted in more than 1,000 years, it is not considered extinct. It is the second-highest mountain in the U.S. state of Washington, after Mount Rainier. #mtadams #apecanyon #hiking #hikingadventures #hiking πŸ‘£ #hiking 🌲 #hiking_daily #hiking_hobby #hikingtrails #hikingculture #hikinglife #giffordpinchot #cougar #hikingwashington #nature #pdx #pdxphotographer #adventureswithdad #fathersontime #mysonismyworld #mysonismyworld #lovethelifeyoulive #livethelifeyoulove #natureismychurch #natureisamazing #natureismytherapy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #ptsdawareness #ptsd
Found this fungus on the way up to Ape Canyon aka an Artist Bracket, and grows as a mycelium within the wood of living and dead trees. It forms fruiting bodies that are up to 30–100 centimetres across, hard as leather, woody-textured, and inedible in raw form. They are white at first but soon turn dark red-brown. Brown spores are released from the pores on the underside of the fruiting body. The fruiting bodies are perennial, and may persist for multiple years, increasing in size and forming new layers of pores as they grow. #fungi #mushrooms #hiking #hikingadventures #hiking πŸ‘£ #hiking 🌲 #hiking_daily #hiking_hobby #hikingtrails #hikingculture #hikinglife #giffordpinchot #cougar #hikingwashington #nature #pdx #pdxphotographer #adventureswithdad #fathersontime #mysonismyworld #mysonismyworld #lovethelifeyoulive #livethelifeyoulove #natureismychurch #natureisamazing #natureismytherapy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #ptsdawareness #ptsd

I spent some much needed time in nature the last few days! 🌲 I ran off to the Mountains for hiking & hot springs w/ my Love.β€οΈπŸ”I worked through the weekend so I could take this time this week, and it was so worth it. Since I’ve been here in Colorado, I’ve mostly been in my office swamped w/ work ~ which I’ve been SO GRATEFUL for πŸ™πŸ½ ~ but I was so stoked to get out & play! πŸ€— I can’t believe it already started snowing here, but the cold air made the Springs that much nicer! ❄️πŸ”₯Mineral Hot Springs are my favorite thing in the world ~ I always feel so refreshed & rejuvenated after! I’ve been doing a lot of design work recently for future collections, and I NEED time in nature to fuel my creativity. I just finished up some designs I’ve been working out in my head while hiking & soaking. πŸ’Žβœ¨ Well now I’ve scratched the surface of the nature here in Colorado & I’m so excited to explore more! I’m back to Denver & back to work now & can’t wait for my next adventure! As I acclimate to city life, I’m definitely going to need these little escapes! Luckily Colorado seems to offer the best of both worldsπŸ”πŸ™πŸ½βœ¨ . . Ps ~ the Necklace I’m wearing in the Selfie here is a personal OOAK that I made years ago. Chris actually minded the crystal just a few miles from the Hot Springs we went to, so I brought it home!!

What you see is a pretty bowl of aΓ§aΓ­, organic raw honey, pretty fruit and a sunny walk to the beach in Hawaii a couple weeks ago. . But this week I’m in the middle of leading a live version of my anxiety tools challenge. Yesterday I found myself feeling like I’d had a set back. . And as I unpacked the feelings swarming in my being I found shame. Frustration. Sadness. . Normal. Human. Emotions. . But the game changer was allowing the feelings to be there. Not swooping in to change or avoid, but ALLOW them. Explore them and where their roots were. . You see, the sunny β€œaΓ§aΓ­ bowl and walk to the warm sands” moments do happen. But so do the moments of overwhelm. So do the invasive thoughts that want to derail our progress. . Which is why I want to invite you to release the idea that every moment will feel great. And to also release the expectation that when they’re not that you immediately have to get back to sunnyness. . Focus instead on caring for yourself well in the harder times. On being your best advocate for compassion, encouragement, and self-love. And then reach for the tools, support, and loved ones that, like you, want to grow. . I dived into this topic more in the live I did this morning. So if you’re looking for some extra support come watch the replay πŸ’žπŸ‘­ you don’t have to be alone! . Anyone else wanna dive into this aΓ§aΓ­ bowl right now?? πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
and the nature whispered: dear, itβ€˜s time to go inward. celebrate all the blessings your being has created so far and let your heart be filled with joy & gratitude. and now, #reveal . #expose . #uncover . πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

I was bummed out I couldn’t hike Baldy today bc it was too windy and I just had a gut feeling it wasn’t safe to go. I ended up just checking out San Antonio Falls and attempting to take some nature photos at Ice House Canyon but when I got there it seemed pretty windy too. I settled for Potato Mountain β›° instead as a Plan C. It was my first time up here! I must say I wasn’t too impressed with the trail, I feel like Henninger Flats is prettier but this trail is awesome for trail running, it’s nice and wide and has some steep incline! I do like the view at the top better then at Henninger Flats bc you can get a glimpse of Mt Baldy ☺️ Hike #72 #RNlife #potatomountain #52hikechallenge #hikersbabesorg100 #sixpackofpeaks #journeyto100 #lovehiking #summit #view #topoftheworld #naturephotography #optoutside #adventure #wanderlust #nature #womenwhohike #mountaingirls #socalhiker #naturegram #igdaily #explore #hike #girlswhohikela #natureismytherapy #mountains

Taking pictures of your kids growing up increases your appreciation of life. I have so many wonderful memories that we created together going on adventures. Get out into the world with your kids, and show them all the amazing things that are out there. I guarantee in a few years it will be one of the best investments that you have made. #multnomahfalls #hiking #hikingadventures #hiking πŸ‘£ #hiking 🌲 #hiking_daily #hiking_hobby #hikingtrails #hikingculture #hikinglife #columbiariver #columbiagorge #hikingoregon #nature #pdx #pdxphotographer #adventureswithdad #fathersontime #mysonismyworld #mysonismyworld #lovethelifeyoulive #livethelifeyoulove #natureismychurch #natureisamazing #natureismytherapy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #ptsdawareness #ptsd
Upper Dutchman Falls is located between Multnomah Falls and Wiesendanger Falls, Multnomah Creek makes several small dashes down a series of wide basalt ledges. Three of these are spaced close enough together that grouping them into one entry is feasible. The first drop is a 10 foot tall, 20 foot wide block shaped waterfall that can only be seen from the side. The second and largest is a 15 foot tall, 20 foot wide non-vertical block - the most easily seen of the three. The last is an 8 foot slide which is partially blocked from view by some bushes. The falls aren't officially named, but this name, stemming from nearby Dutchman's Tunnel - a precarious basalt overhang just upstream along the trail - has been applied for over 15 years, first seen in A Waterfall Lover's Guide to the Pacific Northwest. #multnomahfalls #hiking #hikingadventures #hiking πŸ‘£ #hiking 🌲 #hiking_daily #hiking_hobby #hikingtrails #hikingculture #hikinglife #columbiariver #columbiagorge #hikingoregon #nature #pdx #pdxphotographer #adventureswithdad #fathersontime #mysonismyworld #mysonismyworld #lovethelifeyoulive #livethelifeyoulove #natureismychurch #natureisamazing #natureismytherapy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #ptsdawareness #ptsd
My son’s first time seeing Wiesendanger Falls back in 2015. The Falls are named for Albert Wiesendanger, a Forest Service Ranger. The 55-foot falls are also known as Upper Multnomah Falls, Twanklaskie Falls, and Double Falls (the latter together with Ecola Falls). #multnomahfalls #hiking #hikingadventures #hiking πŸ‘£ #hiking 🌲 #hiking_daily #hiking_hobby #hikingtrails #hikingculture #hikinglife #columbiariver #columbiagorge #hikingoregon #nature #pdx #pdxphotographer #adventureswithdad #fathersontime #mysonismyworld #mysonismyworld #lovethelifeyoulive #livethelifeyoulove #natureismychurch #natureisamazing #natureismytherapy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #ptsdawareness #ptsd
This is from our first father son solo hike up Multnomah Falls in June 2015. Not the best picture, but a keepsake for me. According to Native American lore, Multnomah Falls was created to win the heart of a young princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe. Although you can see the top portion of the falls from the highway, to view both tiers you have to walk to the viewing area located in a carved-out opening in the rock face. Tilting your head up in the narrow rocky confines of the steep cliffs, you get a mind-boggling perspective on the sheer magnitude of the falls. #multnomahfalls #hiking #hikingadventures #hiking πŸ‘£ #hiking 🌲 #hiking_daily #hiking_hobby #hikingtrails #hikingculture #hikinglife #columbiariver #columbiagorge #hikingoregon #nature #pdx #pdxphotographer #adventureswithdad #fathersontime #mysonismyworld #mysonismyworld #lovethelifeyoulive #livethelifeyoulove #natureismychurch #natureisamazing #natureismytherapy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #ptsdawareness #ptsd
