I think being a creative can be so stinkin’ stressful sometimes. I feel an immense pressure to meet some crazy standards and produce the same product as my peers sometimes. I have to remind myself that what makes creating so special is the individualism and uniqueness. heading back to the basics folks.... and that is that the outdoors of the Pacific Northwest brings solace + clarity to my ever so chaotic, stressful life. and sometimes those moments are just too special to not capture on film 🌟
Thank you to everyone who helped us meet our goal in the 2018 Walk Match Challenge! The Walk to End Alzheimer's begins in less than two weeks. Don't wait, register today!
I haven’t experienced anything quite like the thrill of class 5 scrambling over sharp jagged gendarmes along the steep, narrow ridge traversing from the summit of Matterhorn to Sacajawea, the two tallest peaks in the truly awesome Wallowa mountain range. You have to trust each step, each foot and hand hold before you shift your weight. Make sure the rock is not lose, you can’t mess up out here. The knife edge summit and otherworldly views made this challenge so deeply satisfying. Could not have asked for a better team of badass peak bagging mountaineer women who lead, navigated, cheered on and encouraged. This was one for the books.
The happiest Bird is a Bird on a trail.
