Choose not to censor your happiness for anyone! It's truly okay to release optimism into the world and let joyfulness course through your existence without worrying what the world thinks about it. . . . . . . . . . . #behappy #lifeisgood #goodvibes #parkranger #wanderlust #optoutside #adventure #explore #hiking #wildernessculture #staywild #pikespeak #beautifuldestinations #nature #landscape #conservation #photography #portrait #moodygrams #artofvisuals #lensbible #agameoftones #bevisuallyinspired #womenwhohike #rockymountains #colorado
Easy five miles with strides chasing the sun! Hope everyone had a fabulous Monday!
It’s important to unwind. Spend time watching the clouds. Take deep breaths of fresh air. Do it for yourself, but others will appreciate it in you as well. 🌎 💨 🔥 💧 #adirondacks #mountains #country #camping #clouds #hiking #travel #summer #travelphotography #lakeside #sky #naturephotography #upstateny #iloveny #mountains #sunrise #sunset #lifestyle #outdoors #nature #optoutside #getoutside #fresh #water #drone #dji #instagram #gopro #iphone #dronestagram #jcbyrne
I take pictures because I like looking back at the places I’ve gone, the things that I’ve done, and the memories that I’ve shared with the people I love
I'm early for #waterfallwednesday but because IG doesn't show posts chronologically, by the time some of you see this, it'll be Wednesday anyway! #ipulledoverforthis . .

Sleeping under the Sleeping Ute tonight... Legend has it that one day a chief who lies here in rest (the mountain) will wake up and restore this land to the people it once belonged to... And man... I would love to be there when it happens 🏔👊🏽⛓#canyoncountry #coloradoplateauwalk #coloradoplateau #nature #wildtravels #optoutside #explore #thruhikingsyndicate #wilderness #thruhiker #wondermore #wildernessculture #Adventure #backpacking #optoutside #Outdoors #Wonderlust #lonleyplanet #natgeotravel #hike #explore #mountains #landscape
Black Canyon Of The Gunnison National Park
serious views. serious sweat.
Enjoying the quiet of Going to the Sun Road before it opens to vehicles for the season.
The #mountains were moody today. Not me though. #Running through the forest makes me smile. Add some late #winter conditions and it’s straight perfection. 👌 🏔 #northcascadesnationalpark #northcascades #upperleftusa #trailrunning #washingtonstate

Just like life. It can look amazing from the right angle ✌️ @justalphagram
Focus on the good It surrounds us everyday One just has to look #haiku #sqmtb This weekend I have been shown once again that we are surrounded by an amazing community. Thank you to everyone who shared my last post about the thieves who stole from us. I am thankful no one was hurt. And not to worry, the RCMP were the first call we made...we were hoping to catch the fools with our post, but the RCMP do have someone in custody!! Apparently the thieves went on quite the spree in Squamish ...😡 And a big thank you especially to those who gave hugs, kind words, kombucha, wine, beer, flowers, and offered to loan bikes while we wait for insurance. You are epic and we appreciate you ❤️ #squamishisawesome #gratitude #blessed
Closure. Peace. The blissful lightness which accompanies the realization that somehow. Someway. You’ve received everything you didn’t even know you came for. The subtle knowing that, although it wasn’t easy, it was all put there to teach you. The heartache designed to shape you. Every last Angel sent as guide in helping you to arrive right here. At this very destination: “The Other Side”. Brighter. Wiser. Standing taller and breathing deeper than when you began all those years ago. And, as you prepare to say a heartfelt goodbye to the country that housed and held you during some of the best and worst moments of your life - it all seamlessly draws to a comfortable finale. The anxious butterflies cease. A smile spreads across lips. Your heart literally relaxes into a place of purest gratitude knowing that every beautiful recollection has become a piece of Who You Are. And, although the not-so-beautiful memories may never fully disappear, the heaviness attached to them will. Because, in the end you trust, every little thing is going to be alright. ✨✌️❤️ . . Open mind. Open heart. Open arms. I’m ready. ✨ Austria, I’m coming for you. 🏔✈️🍷🧀. . . . #nottheend #justthebeginning #goodbye #travel #solotraveller #thisisyoga #farewell #optoutside #lessons #lifesteacher #thepracticeneverends #thailand #austria #eurosummer #memories #daydream #itsabeautifullife #theotherside #newink #tinytattoo #arrowrtattoo
Spring in the Denver area. Boy do we know how to pick’em!
Counting down the days till I’m reunited with Cora. She’s been gathering up some PNW rain this week, but I can’t wait to take her out for a paddle with Augs & the hubs and get back on the water for birthday camping celebrations! Soon... ✨👌🏻🎉#isitbirthdayweekyet #cora #pelicankayak #pnwlife #adventuremamas #adventureswithkids #momlife #toddlermom #boymom #waterbaby #pnwfamilies #optoutside #wildbumming #lifeofaswimcoach #pnw
Here’s the gorgeous mama fox and one (of 4!) of her sweet kits. My patience was rewarded times a thousand—the pictures I got this afternoon are like night and day (get it? 🤣) from my flashlight pics. I could just cry. Seeing them out in daylight like this completely floored me. Even if they might try to eat my chickens, I’m still in awe and can’t understand why anyone would want to hurt them. #mamafoxandkit #foxesofinstagram #foxesofig #foxkit #wildlifephotography #wildernessculture #wildandfree #mybackyard #countryliving #backyardwildlife #centralvalleyphotographer #womenphotographers #optoutside #patiencerewarded #wildlife_shots #amongthewild #clickinmoms #clickmagazine #theybelongheretoo #sharetheearth #dearphotographer #lensloves_nature
Matilija Poppy - @descansogardens - I’ve been on the go without a moment to stop for the last 2 months. Finally, Sunday. I got to spend the rainy morning with a new friend, @christinealward , who reminded me how important it is to slow down and appreciate the small things. She’s a warm soul with a unique perspective of nature and skills the pay the bills. Go check out her page, I promise you won’t regret it!
This milkshake will never disappoint me. If you know, you know.
Get in n get out... The importance of not eating too much lunch in order to re-fit in the kayak... #lesson351
It’s National Rescue Dog Day. This is a photo from the day I was adopted by @risuens and @mrs_risueno
Today, during our Monday babies class, I had a humbling experience. The lesson initially seemed like a flop through my eyes ... the babies wanted little to do with the provided materials or the ideas I framed. What a great stretching moment for me as a leader! After taking a step back and seeing what the babies were doing, I saw so many moments of social connection and shared interest. This little trio shared bananas with each other for a good chunk of the class. Was it what I intended? No. Did these babies engage with each other and follow their own interests? YES 🙌🏻 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tinkergarten #playbasedlearning #outdoorplay #outdoorclassroom #candidchildhood #raiseawildchild #letthembelittle #optoutside #staywildmychild #kidsinnature #eastdallas #lakewooddallas #lakehighlandsdallas #mstreetsdallas #tietzepark #whiterockdallas #playmatters #learningthroughplay #wildandfreechildren #raisegoodhumans #teachkindness #mindfulmama #wildschooling #tinkergartenbabies #playoutdoorsall4 #playmatters
The last two days have been BUSY. Drove 12 hours from Lawrence to Los Alamos, NM. Had a great night in New Mexico, then headed to the Grand Canyon this morning. I couldnt stop myself from smiling the whole time. Probably the most awe-struck I've been by nature ever. Zion in the morning! #NationalParks #GrandCanyon #OptOutside #Hiking #Backpacking #RoadTrip

Living in a dream... incredible place to watch a #storm roll in.
the light breaks through again
the ways.
Time is such a wonderful gift. You’re not running out. You’re really running in. ~Trevor Hall
You're strong, you're smart and independent. You're an orange rhyming dictionary to a hopeless song. And your sickness, it hurts to be a witness. I wish that I could take all of your pain away.

Fresh week, fresh start, fresh views and fresh perspectives! Happy #mountainmonday from one of my favorite places🏔🧘🏻‍♀️

Winterland is still around the corner ❄
This ocotillo bush has learned to thrive in the constraints of limited water in the desert. How, you ask? The ocotillo only puts out leaves when there is sufficient water present, usually within a few hours of rainfall. It then sheds its leaves when that ground water dries up; the leaves lasting no more than a couple days at times to limit water loss through evapotranspiration. Mother Nature has learned how to maximize growth in any situation, given any constraint. How will you maximize growth in your surroundings? #MindfulWandering #importedfromwisdom . But while you're in the desert, make sure you keep your water filtered with one from @msr_gear. Mine has lasted me for years. . . . . #EscalanteRidge #sandiego #california #desert #hiking #adventure #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #explorer #hikesandiego #liveadventurously #sandiegoliving #SD #wander #travels #hikesocal #goatworthy #optoutside #divine_deserts #getoutstayout #sdhikes #hikingculture #desertflowers #werutah #visitcalifornia #wildernessculture #adventureculture #sandiegoadventures @adventure16 @nationalparkfans @anzaborregodesertsp
Do you treat barriers as obstacles or as challenges to create something of beauty? Without barriers to scale, we cannot climb higher. Those same barriers can also become places of refuge. Sunset Cliffs in San Diego is a barrier that nature has eroded, one wave at a time, into a place of beauty. It also protects San Diego Harbor from storms. A place that explorer Juan Cabrillo called a "very good enclosed port." As an explorer for the Spanish Crown, he understood #MindfulWandering . . . . . #EscalanteRidge #importedfromwisdom #createyourtrail @westbysouthwest #wilderness #wanderer #sandiego #tetonsports #alltrails #sandiegoliving #happypeoplehike #goatworthy #optoutside #igsouthwest #getoutstayout #np10k #wanderlust #travelgram #rawcalifornia #SD #discovercalifornia #pacific #socal #explorer #california #hikecalifornia #cali @best.of.sandiego @recreation_gov @adventure.spirit
Welcome to Escalante Ridge! Escalante is a Spanish name from the word escalar, meaning to scale, climb, or ascend. Our initial goal is to share content that helps you climb out of daily life and lift your perspective. We aim to challenge your perceptions and help you grow, even if just one step at a time.

Trekked for about 8 hours on my way to my homestay up in the mountains. Couldn’t communicate with my Vietnamese family at all, but we had one thing in common and that was rice wine. Woke up this morning to this view.
Summertime bucket list: chase as many waterfalls as we can 💦✨🌈
how picturesque is this cliffside highway? 😍🌼🔝
am I dreaming? 💕
one step at a time 😬😰💚
The sound of this waterfall combined with the morning silence was insane 🌲🌎💙
