“I’m going to climb that one next” Pointing at our next adventure! 😁. . . .👯‍♀️#womancrushwednesday goes to these kickass ladies. 👯‍♀️Had such a great time bagging Chocolate Peak with them. We did some off trail hiking and made our own route down the peak, making it a little more fun - we called it the Chocolate Peak Traverse 🤣 Thank you ladies for being so down! Out here in the Sierras, there sometimes isn’t any room for fear or doubt- it’s all a mental game. These girls were no doubt fearless & always kept pushing while enjoying the views. Cannot wait to keep exploring with you all 😘💪🏽✊🏽 #yourvibeattractsyourtribe

Just booked my flight back to CO for next week.. I'm really not ready to go back just yet, especially after my best friends @nnutmeg @bitojoe getting engaged yesterday! They've always been married in my mind but its finally becoming reality. Love them to death and wish I could just bring them and all my favorite people to my favorite state with me. See ya in December, Mitten🥶 • • • • • • #rei #nature #hiking #colorado #snowmass #aspen #landscape #wanderlust #optoutisde #rei1440project #getoutstayout #choosemountains #keepitwild #adventureculture #thegreatputdoors #stayandwander #purcamplife #getoutdoors #wildernessculture #ourpnw #exploremore #theoutbound

Tell the story of the mountain you climbed. Your words could become a page in someone else’s survival guide. . . . Recently have been feeling super empowered by being surrounded by likeminded women. I love being able to share my experiences with my friends and hear their stories as well. I continuously find myself feeling more brave when I’m around women who hike. Because of them, I will keep telling my stories. Maybe one day they’ll use a little piece of my experience/words to their advantage. Cheers to all women who adventure fearlessly. 🌱✊🏽
Texas weather is a beotch. I contemplated for half second txting my coach and asking for a TM workout instead of the planned hills. 🤔. Then I could hear a whole host of my run friends in my head telling me to suck it up (well let’s me honest in my head they all swear like sailors). #coachdrum #teamdrum #teamdrumcoaching #optoutisde #runnersofinstagram #igrunners #runshots #instgramrunning #running #womensrunningcommunity #run #motherrunner #anothermotherrunner #womenwhorun

Shout out to all the badass mountaineers showing others you are as strong as any other mountaineer, but fueled through veggies and fruits 🌱💚🙌🏾 No harm here to do badass things like our fellow friend @aldinezi ✊🏽 . . . The load in my mind was heavy, full of discourage, fear and self-disbelief. But 12 hours later, after reaching the top and safe return, joy was greater than a mountain. . . . Keep up the awesome work out in these beautiful mountains 💪🏽😍
I'm a strong woman. I do not sit around feeling sorry for myself, nor let people mistreat me. I don't respond to people who dictate to me or try to bring me down. If I fall I will rise up even stronger because I am a survivor and not a victim. I am in control of my life and there is nothing I can't achieve. #fillyourselfup 💚🌱
Life is good. #optoutisde #indiana #keen
Ran/Jogged/Hiked up to Mt Baden Powell, on this beautiful day for some training 🌱 My first time at BP I completed this solo with a time of a little over 2 hours, almost 3 hrs. The second time took longer as the trail was filled with snow. Today I set a PR of 1hr 54, solo trek up the summit and back. The uphill was brutal, and had to speed walk/jog sections. Ran back down the whole way with a blister 🤨. Even though I know this is not a fast time, I feel like I’m only going to get stronger from this. Competing with myself. ✊🏽Gained about 2800ft - in 7.9 miles. Elevation: 9,407 according to the sign 😁 So stoked I got this checked off my list, as I’ve been wanting to run this trail for quite some time. #eatyourveggies 💚😘
Fall is certainly my favorite season 🍁🍂
⛰ Crested Butte ⛰ stole our hearts with it’s beauty this week. ❤️ We loved the scenic drive, the changing leaves, and the quaint, colorful downtown. 🍂 It also blew us away with the tastiest pizza from @secretstashcb 🍕🍕 (thanks to everyone who recommended it!) The snow on Wednesday put a little damper on our hiking plans, so we are already planning a trip next summer! 🌺🌸 What are your favorite things to do in Crested Butte? 👇🏼
The mountains have taught me that taking leaps, long walks, and moving one step at a time will only help you move forward and make you stronger. That is why I no longer fear walking away from anything and anyone, no matter how difficult it may be. A lot of walking away will do your life good. Walk away from arguments that lead you to anger and nowhere. Walk away form people who deliberatley put you down. Walk away from the practice of pleasing people who choose to never see your worth. Walk away from any thought that undermines your peace of mind. Walk away from judmental people, they do not know the struggle you are facing and what you have been through. NO ONE will ever know what you've been through more clearly than YOU. Walk away from your mistakes and fears, they do not determine your fate. The more you walk away from things that poison your soul, the healther your life will be. Although its not the end of the year, I've realized how much judgment people hold in their hearts. I have learned that although people may be cruel, I cannot let that poison make me cruel. No matter how badly you want to give the world a taste of its own bitter medicine, it is NEVER worth losing yourself. I have learned to find myself despite all the poison that has come in my life. This is why I have done a lot of walking away this year. For my own sanity and so not to lose myself or the love I would rather radiate in this world. In the end, I choose love over hate every single time. I send love to all those who have judged me or brought toxic vibes in my life. I am in receipt of your actions and I'll pray for the best in everyones lives, every day. This is how I control my own happiness and my own peace, and this is how I keep moving forward, regardless of whatever comes my way. . . . #flashbackfriday 01/2016 Winter Mountaineering course taken through the SMC.

It’s Friyay ... 📸 @dirtdrops
4 years of marriage today 💍 God knew exactly what He was doing when He wrote our love story. I’m still amazed at how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown over the last few years. Now we have the sweetest little family 💕 Thank you for all that you do for me and Sophia. And thank you for the support you’ve given me through many ups and downs that we have faced. I love you more than you know ❤️ Happy anniversary! . . . #hikinglife #octoberphotochallenge #hikingboots #octobertravels #coloradogram #beckfamilyadventures #anniversarytrip #anniversary #choosountains #optoutisde #amongthewild #snowlife #familyvacation #marriagegoals #marriagerocks #travelingthroughcolorado #destinationcolorado #adventureiscalling #outside_project #pmgridchallenge #everytrailconnects #madewild #peoplewhohike

But the sun is somewhere shining even when it rains . . . #tbt to one of the wildest adventure. One that still to this day scares me sometimes, especially because of where my mind was. It was my first time experiencing a snow hike in the Sierras. I didn’t expect anything, but a summit with some awesome people. My mind when I first started hiking was all about getting that summit. When I think back, and realize the group made the best decision to bail at 12k ft due to white out conditions on our way to Mt Agassiz, I thank God I followed their decision to turn back. I remember feeling sad and disappointed when we had to turn back, because I wanted that summit so bad. I was willing to approach it without the proper gear. I had no helmet or ice ax or crampons. I am so thankful we turned back, or who knows what could have happened. I’m glad the group made the right choice. Because of this hike and after hearing about the dangers of hiking in snow, I decided to later invest in my safety. I took on a winter mountaineering course, so to always make the right calls when adventuring during the winter time. Educating yourself about the dangers and how to stay safe is vital, and am a big advocate when it comes to that. As many of you know, winter is approaching us quickly, and I just hope that you all learn before you go out there. Take a course, ask a friend for information, ask for advice. Prepare yourself. Planning ahead is the smartest thing you can do. You’ll realize how much more fun winter mountaineering is, once you educate yourself: so to my friends going out during this time, please don’t think about that summit. Think about your safety and enjoy yourselves out there, with the proper gear. It’s not all about having microspikes or an ice axe. Learn the proper way to self arrest, the proper way to travel with an axe. Know when it’s safest to travel on snow/ glaciers/ and signs of potential avalanche danger. I promise you, investing in your safety is the smartest thing you can do for yourself, your family, your friends. Love and peace ✌️ to you all 💚🙏🏽🌱

Where you stay is part of the adventure, and we have the perfect accommodations to match our journeys. Check out this one in Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia (the hotel is almost entirely made out of salt!) #wildernesstravel
A short and unplanned detour to Vietnam 🇻🇳. The beauty of a multi month exploring journey is that time does not really matter, you can improvise and be open to any opportunities. Always nice to have a bite on something new.

I may not be that good looking or athletic or talented or funny or smart. I forgot where I was going with this. But I do know I love tacos 🌮 . . . Latergram to the time two badass babes and I bagged Banner Peak, making our own route, determined to get to get to the top. I had zero sleep, and had been awake for more than 24 hrs. Thought of really napping many times, but these girls pushed me to keep going. Had the best sleep of my life when we set up camp. Excuse the messy pack. I tend to have the hardest time packing neatly on my way out 🙄 Also, I always think about why I do shit like this sometimes, and when I look back at photos, my answer lies there. Swipe left to see Catherine Lake and all its beauty! 😍 The Sierras are calling...😉 #pushforthepeak
That F I N I S H L I N E feeling is even better when shared with family! Thank you @twincitiesinmotion for hosting an amazingly beautiful race, and to #minneapolis and #stpaul for being the best course cheerleaders👏🏻🍾🙌🏻 . . . #medalmonday #nobadmiles

Was surrounded by amazing earthlings this weekend. Life is SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL. Feeling grateful for everything and everyone in my life. . . Had a rough start to my weekend after hearing my cousin got into a coma after a bad accident. Almost cancelled all plans that I had, but decided not to. I prayed and have hope that God will save my cousin, and am so grateful for everyone that said a prayer for my cousin. She is doing better 🙏🏽 . . Despite not being fully present, these souls really made my weekend. I held my first ever @vegansinthewild hike. It was so nice to connect with everyone who attended. Was super thankful for the companies who donated/sponsored our event. . . In addition, I was able to camp out with some rad Vegan babes and eat delicious vegan food. These babes get down in the kitchen and the campfire lol Thank you @sandlazar for what was my fav eat at the campout, your strawberry chocolate s’mores 🤤 & for coordinating all of that! My heart was full seeing everyone’s dogs there, too! I made a new bff, Lexi who snuggled with me at night lol . . Ended my weekend eating some bomb @vegatinos tacos. It’s always great to see @paniagua7 - a beautiful and amazing soul! You always put a smile on my face! ☺️💚 . . Thank you to every soul that I spent time with this weekend, y’all are unique and awesome! 😁

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone that made it out to our first ever @vegansinthewild hike in LA! It was so great to meet all of you and see some familiar faces! You all are amazing individuals. I hope that some of you were able to connect or were able to meet someone new that lives the same lifestyle as you. You all make a positive impact in our daily lives, by being who you are. Your are changing the world. Also, thank you to those who support the plant based lifestyle, and are curious about the lifestyle/looking to transition. We hope that we are able to spark some interest and provide knowledge to others who may not know what it’s like to live a Vegan lifestyle. . . . Early bird gets the worm. We definitely had this trail all to ourselves for the most part, because we woke up before the break of dawn. I know it’s not easy, but it’s all worth it! I hope to see you all at our next hike! . . Shout out to @risebar , @unreal.snacks , @veganrobs and @sawyerproducts for donating to this event and sponsoring us with awesome snacks/products! We are so grateful! More photos to come! 😉💚

“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt” - John Muir • • Day 5: Our final hiking day at Glacier National Park would also be our most challenging; with a 7.9mile round trip hike, 2400ft of elevation gain and wind gusts making it well below freezing. But as always - it was worth it. From big horn sheep encounters, to Mountain View’s, this hike was a perfect way to end a dream vacation in hikers paradise. • 📍Scenic Point.

Still dreaming about watching the sunrise at this spot in the Rocky Mountains. 🌅 Blue Lakes was a picturesque spot for an impromptu camping trip before hiking Quandary Peak! ⛺️ The campsites are first come first serve, and limited, but well worth this view. 🏞 . . . . #boulder #colorado #colorfulcolorado #mountains #mountainview #hiking #camping #optoutisde #takeahike #travel #hike #outside #greatoutdoors #visitcolorado #aboutboulder #visitboulder #explore #getout #nature #hikingadventure #rockymountains #adventure #landscape #outdoor #lake #hikersofinstagram #hikingtrail #trail
“In nature, death creates life” • Day 4 at GNP: We we’re transitioning from Many Glacier to Two Medicine and decided to go a little easier. A 6mile round trip hike revealed incredible water falls, created by snow melt in July. You can also see the transition of the forest: the burn on the trees from previous fires, while new life grows beneath it. 📍Virginia Falls.

My clothing choices have become questionable since moving into Winnie. 🤣 I tend to just throw clothes on, having limited room and mirror space. When I lived in a house I would most likely pick through a few different tank tops, rummage through to find my favorite socks (@stancesocks ), and look at myself in the mirror at least 5 times before walking out the door. There’s a difference between not giving a shit about how you look and not worrying a shit about how you look. I worry less these days. I’m not big into make up as it is but it’s definitely going on my face way less these days. I feel like these are positive changes in my life. What positive changes have personally occurred since you went full time into vanlife/rv life? Have you found yourself letting go of things that you were attached to and thought you couldn’t live with out? . . . . . . #rvlife #vanlife #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifediaries #winnebago #vintagerv #73winnebago #optoutisde #travel #minimalism #minimalist #minimize #lakelife #adventure #nomadlife #van #rv #careless #jackrussellterrier #camp #camplife

Weekends up north are always a fun opportunity to put together delicious camping meals and cook over the fire. This weekend was fueled by @sociablecider hard cider + @fireballwhisky , instant pumpkin spice lattes & chaga mushroom tea from the most giant piece of chaga that we’ve ever found growing on a birch tree. We also made some delicious PB&J sandwiches with homemade chokecherry jam heated over the fire, pizza sandwiches made over the fire and our favorite spam hash and eggs made in the cast iron pan. . . 🏕🍴 . . . #cookingandcamping #lodgecastiron #campfire #campfirecooking #chaga #exploremn #justaddnature #onyinmn #sociableciderwerks #fireball #pbandj #pizza #pieirons #superiornationalforest #kabetogamastateforest #optoutisde #food #foodie #smores #psl #fall #fallfood

Ned can't sleep past 5am when we go fishing. He's too excited. So naturally that means I'm up and out of my sleeping bag too. But when that also means we're the first on the river and get to see the sun light up the sky like this, you'll never hear me complain.
