I really enjoyed the trail to Half Dome. My least favorite kind of trail is a chemtrail. 🛩💨💨💨💨
Trying to write a paper while daydreamin’ about snowy mountain adventures, skiing and my favorite season coming oh’ so soon.

We had the pleasure of driving through Nat’l Escalante and having dinner at the famed Hell’s Backbone Grill in Boulder, UT. Learned a few things about the fight to protect these lands. “President Clinton established the 1.8 million acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in 1996, and in 2017, President Trump shrunk its boundaries by 45 percent. We’re defending the original boundaries of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in court.” Read more about protecting 3 national monuments and the surrounding 1.8m acres of land here: https://www.grandcanyontrust.org/grand-staircase-escalante-national-monument * * * #escalantenationalmonument #protectourpubliclands #nationalmonument #escalante #sprintercampervans #vanlife #vanlifediaries #protectourland #bearsearsnationalmonument
“Take only pictures, steal only time, leave only footprints” 📷🕰👣 — I saw TOO many signs put up by our wonderful NPS in the High Sierra this summer warning hikers that wildlife had already claimed the unguarded food of errant hikers and pleading with all to be more diligent and leave no trace — accidents seldom happen; rather, incidents occur readily as a result of carelessness — the burden rests on ALL of us to protect the places that we love! (2nd pic is of a black bear walking undeterred right through our camp at 6PM—unnatural behavior)
Join us for @jeremyjones latest movie Ode to Muir ‪on 30 October‬ at Amboss Rampe in Zurich. Together with @elenahight , the founder of Protect Our Winters ventures into his backyard equipped only with his split board and a tent to explore what the real American Wilderness is made of. The new movie by @tetongravity highlights our connection to nature and the wilderness that surrounds us. . The screening will be preceded by a short introduction by POW Switzerland and the screening of our new trailer. Free entry, see you there! . #odetomuir #protectourwinters #protectourpubliclands #wilderness #johnmuir #searchingforpowder #jonessnowboards #protectwhatyoulove #protectourwintersswitzerland
8 whole days off work?! So many cool places to explore. Still being indecisive so any input on where to go is greatly appreciated.

Wendy Rose, of the Hopi and Miwok people, wrote: . "parts of me are pinned to earth, parts of me undermine song, parts of me spread on the water, parts of me form a rainbow bridge, parts of me follow the sandfish, parts of me are a woman who judges" - from 'the parts of a poet' . And I resonate with her words, as a creator, a woman, a human at home on earth. . These thoughts, and many others like them, inspire the tone of my personal #work these days. When I'm not after the unique character within a portrait, I'm after my own inner, lyrical garden of emotions growing around Natural and societal injustice. . This painting begins to touch on my relationship with the idea of America, allegiance to the Land, and #native honor. . And it'll be available end of the month! . . . #figurativeart #allegoricalart #contemporaryart #artandpoetry #totemicart #totemicon #americanicon #ipledgeallegiancetotheland #figurativepainting #contemporarypainting #modernart #artoftoday #artlovers #womeninart #womenpaintingwomen #womenartists #baldeagle #thisland #protectourpubliclands

Thank you to @rei and @ctforestandparkassociation for an informative and inspiring evening. Tonight we discussed the very important topic of protecting public lands in the state of Connecticut. If you’d like to learn more about this November 6th ballot issue use the link provided here: http://protectctpubliclands.org. If you are familiar with the initiative, please vote ‘YES’ on Question 2. This is our only chance to keep our favorite open spaces transparent with added protections, so that we and future generations can continue to enjoy them. #protectourpubliclands #votetheoutdoors #findyourtrail #publiclands #outdoors #hiking #camping #trailrunning #trailchat #kayaking #cycling #reiwesthartford #optoutside #vote
Arrived in Moab and spent our first day on a drive around Arches National Park to scout out the trails. Going to be lots of fun hiking around these arches over the next few days. #arches #archesnationalpark #lasalmountains #desertlife #southwest #desertsouthwest #moab #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #protectourpubliclands #takeahike #exploremore #ohtheplacesyoullgo #snowcappedmountains #rvlife #homeonwheels #homeiswhereyouparkit #wanderlust
It's desert season!

This weekend’s Moab 240 aid station/exploring adventure was a lot of beautiful, chilly, sleep deprived fun. Congratulations to all of the runners for going out there and killing it for 240-ish miles!
n a t u r e i s m e d i c i n e we’re heading into an annual event in our mountain town called SHIFT. this year the theme is connecting the outdoors to our physical health and wellbeing. we’ll be sharing highlights from the event on our storyboard so tune into our feed! 🤙 • a b o u t S H I F T this year features two tracks: 1. communication: how do we communicate the evidence behind the health benefits of time outside to the health-care community, the policy makers and the public at large? this “top-down” track will showcase ways we can disseminate the research, data and information critical to the success of the Outside Rx movement. 2. activation: the health care community needs support from other sectors if it is to succeed in making Outside Rx the next big medical revelation. this “bottom-up” track highlights best practices from around the country that are connecting Americans to time outside in impactful, innovative and replicable ways, with a particular focus on the civic planners, community-based organizations and natural allies in outdoor recreation, conservation and land management who are successfully connecting people with nature via their programs and initiatives @shift_jh #publiclands #protectourpubliclands #parksandrecreation #gateway #health #wellness #hiking #biking #camping #kayaking #skiing #trainrunning #hiking #getoutside #betterheath #bewell #bettertostandthansit @waywardmountaineer #thankyou #goodwork
Is it desert season yet? I painted “Welcome to the Creek” last Fall under the canopy of a cottonwood tree right as you entered Indian Creek in the Bears Ears National Monument. This original painting is now available on my website! #indiancreek #bearsearsnationalmonument #protectourpubliclands
I'm sure there are people (not me) who don't want to look at mountain pictures all day and think all the Washingtonian-mountain-people are odd. But here's the thing-- I wake up at 3:30, and that means I'm in bed no later than 7:30. I live in a place where I can go to a trail like this after work and still go to bed on time. And I think that's really, really great. . . . . #optoutside #upperleftliving #thatpnwlife #pnwwonderland #wanderwashington #herpnwlife #womenwhohike #pnwhikerbabes #northwestisbest #protectourpubliclands #choosemountains #lifeoutdoors #neverstopexploring #mountaingirls #sheexplores #wildernessculture #wanderwashington #liveyouradventure #livelifeoutside #liveauthentic #cascadiaexplored #forceofnature #andshesdopetoo #hikingadventures #sheadventures #radgirlslife #theoutbound #rei1440project #goatworthy #mountaineering #amongthewild
As Winter wrestles to steal the spotlight from Fall out west... in either case, it’s better spent outdoors. Wise River gear will have you covered throughout. 📸: @madelinenehls #wiseriverapparel #adventureresponsibly
It is these moments that I carry with me, standing with you in blue ribbons under golden mountains or waking up to rain on the roof of the truck camper or standing in silent awe at the foot of an ice field. I carry them with me to the grocery store and down the busy highway on my way to run errands. They sit next to me as spend time banging away words on my computer. It is these moments that I carry and that keep me whole when the world feels fractured, when I feel fractured. You are a part of my wholeness and we are a part of this land’s. #staycuriousfriends . . . . . . #alaska #goexplore #in2nature #thegreatoutdoors #findyourwild #createyourtrail #welivetoexplore #exploretocreate #nps #publiclandsinpublichands #publiclands #protectourpubliclands #publicspacesforall #peoplewhohike #letscamp #nature #rei1440project #optoutside #goodforthesoul #liveadventurously #ourplanetdaily #folktravel #stayandwander #mountaintop #travelalaska #alaskatribe #alaskatravel #igersalaska #ig_naturelovers

Flooding we usually experience in Nairobi city is usually caused by garbage...we  cry to the government 'serikali saidia' when we are the ones responsible for the garbage disposed in The city that end up blocking water tunnels thus causing floods . The threat of waste to the environment, health and safety is huge. And so are the financial and social ramifications, waste experts say. Pollution runs into rivers and seeps into ground water. Flooding is caused by garbage clogging drains, and the atmosphere can be poisoned by the toxic discharge.lets protect out environment #change starts with me and you #garbage #garbageinthecity #garbagedisposal #garbageband #garbagefine #environment #environmentalactivism #protectenvironment #protecttheearth #protectourplanet #protectourpubliclands #environmentprotection #model #ambassador @garbage @models1 @premiermodels @stormmodels @dtmodelmgmt @selectmodelmgmt @newyorkmodels @jorammodelmanagement @modelspolaroids @freedommodelsla @nextmodels @discovery.hd @discoverearth @earth
Many of you may recognize these falls from the news. They have become a face of the movement to protect the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, because the current administraition wants to open these lands for the escavation of natural resources. As amazing as these falls are, they dont even come close to showing a fraction of the beauty this monument has to offer. It took me hours to drive just a few dozen miles because I stopped at almost every pull off . Every view was impossible for the mind to grasp at anything less than a standstill. So, please, remember this: Novemember is coming. These lands belong to EVERYONE. Not to a Canadian mining company, not to Trump, and not even to the state of Utah. They are OUR lands. Don't let them take them, because if we let them take an inch, next time they will take a mile. #soloistadventures #savegrandstaircase #savebearsears #thislandisyourland #saveourpubliclands #grandstaircaseescalante #publiclands #novemberiscoming #election #vote #irreplaceable #waterfall #gsenm #protectourpubliclands #naturalresources #lowercalfcreekfalls #calfcreekfalls #exploreutah #wanderwomeninc #wanderwoman #adventure #optoutside #adventure #wanderlust #utah #hikeutah
🏕Outside time in AK with friends & family is what it’s all about. This is one of our favorite roadless areas near Petersburg: access to lakes, alpine, views, and rivers for fishing, hunting, hiking, and just being together with loved ones.🏕 . 🐟And don’t forget, 80% of West Coast coho spawn on the Tongass. Instead of making new roads in productive watersheds, let’s work on repairing the hydrologic damage from previous logging roads first. It’s up to us to repair and restore these rivers whose fish power our lives!🐟 . . . #roadless #roadlessrule #tongass #tongassnationalforest #familytime #wild #keepitwild #fishing #hunting #publiclands #protectourpubliclands #protectpubliclands #mypubliclands #alaska #wildalaska #aframe #cabin #cabinlife #cabininthewoods #alaskalife #camping
40 years ago today Congress gave final approval to create the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness! We spent the past 5 days here filming to raise awareness about the ecological dangers of sulfide mining in Minnesota. Conditions were harsh and we are grateful to be home safely. In this photo, Josh and my Dad break a path home through the ice. For more info on sulfide mining in MN, check out the link in my bio. 📷: @forrest.town #SaveTheBoundaryWaters #protectourpubliclands
The spotted lantern fly has unfortunately been spotted in Frenchtown, NJ located in Hunterdon county. This little bastard of a bug is utterly devastating to all types of plants, especially flowering trees. If you see these, please kill and report to the number below. This is CRUCIAL to stop the spread of this species. Please share. https://www.state.nj.us/agriculture/divisions/pi/prog/spottedlanternfly.html #spottedlanternfly , #invasivespecies #naturegirl
“Hiking and exploring the outdoors has been an excellent reminder to ‘hike your own hike’ - that is, to stop and smell the forest, to quit doing things out of obligation, to take life at my own speed, to not compare myself to others, and to let my own heart, mind, and soul lead the way.” -Dainen / @lawdawg076 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pronouns: he/him ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Bandera Mountain, Washington.

Yep, New Mexico is a truly beautiful state. .. ... #adventurehydro #exploringnewmexico #afterthefiesta #scienceissexy .. . . Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, within Cochiti Pueblo, is one of the most spectacular spots in all of #newmexico As you can see it is full of cone-shaped “tent” rock formation. The layers you see sediment as you stroll through #water carved slot canyons are made up of layers of of volcanic ash from eruptions that occurred 6 to 7 million years ago throughout the Jemez volcanic field and the #supervolcano that is the @vallescaldera . The only way to explore this area is by foot and I promise you it is worth every step. .. #landofenchantment #explorenewmexico #watershapeseverything #earthsecrets #protectourpubliclands . .

One of the objectives of the @11thessential is to make being a good steward as easy as possible. . . It's as easy as adding a trash bag to your essential items. Now, you can pick up that water bottle tossed to the side, the banana peel, the doggie poo bag left behind. . . By adding a trash bag to your essential items, your adventure now doubles as a mission of stewardship. . . Through every adventure, with every bag, with every person we start a conversation with, we can make a difference and help protect the places we love. . . It is up to us to protect our beautiful places because if we don't, who will?? . . . You can make a difference by also helping us spread the message of the #11thessential - a message of stewardship and protection for our wild and natural places. A simple act of adding a trash bag to your outdoor essentials can help save our wild places #onebagatatime 🗻🗑🌲 . . Tag your friends below who agree that our wild places are worth protecting. Or, tag someone you want to help convince! 🌎 Let's spread the word because stewardship is our best line of defense! . .

It was about this time last year that I was running around the Moab area exploring some of the most incredible places on earth. Southern Utah is definitely one of my favorite places. It’s the type of place that makes you feel like a kid or a cowboy.
