Aperture: f/1.8 Shutter: 1/5 ISO 800 Tripod: For sure This photo I hadn’t ever planned on taking. I was in the mountains to drive and to clear my head. When returning home I found this scene. I quickly turned my car around and went back to the ridge and snapped this photo. I had to use a high ISO because I didn’t want motion blur on the taillights of the cars, and wanted them to appear still. I also had to sacrifice clarity by using a large aperture, but the effect rendered the photograph better, and is now a technique I will save in my repertoire for later. #colorado #estespark #rmnp #rockymountainnationalpark #moutains #night #nighttime #moon #photography #fineart #trailridgephotography #moonlight #scene #christmas #christmaslights
I wonder if I’m living for the Gram or for myself... often, I’m afraid of that answer. . It’s easy to do right? Lose sight of what we want in the end because Instagram does put some FOMO vibes out there. . So I’m challenging you to write down your vision of the perfect life (we all know perfect doesn’t exist, but we still need to aim for it) and decide if your actions are moving you towards that or towards more likes right now... in the end, you are the only one who has to like your life because off this highlight reel there is a whole lot of sh*t we have to deal with.

Sometimes I dabble in flowers. ✨🌿✨ I was immensely honored when @hollyannsanford let me put together her bridal bouquet! I really can’t take credit for much—the color palette, floral selection and arrangement inspiration were 100% the bride’s vision. She has a gift 😍 But also, everything I know about flowers I learned from the master @mosiesposies 💞💞 Photos: @ladyilg Wedding Planner: @whitethreadparty Venue: @skyviewweddings HMUA: @estesparkbridalco Dress shop: @thebridalcollection Dress brand: @allurebridals Catering: @jubilationscatering
Couldn't pick just one favorite vacation picture, so I picked three each from three trips 😁 We spent a long weekend in Nashville and went to back to back @diarrheaplanet farewell shows at the @exit_in back in September. Week of Independence Day in the Rocky Mountains hiking over 30 miles and completed our goal hike of 9 miles 2000 ft up to Chasm Lake at almost 12000 feet which was my favorite 2018 accomplishment. And finally a week in paradise earlier this month in Riviera Maya to celebrate my husband earning his masters and our first anniversary! Lots of great memories! #tiuholidayhustle #holidayhustle #nashville #rmnp #rivieramaya #top9 #tiuteam

Today @robsmith_mountainguide and I climbed Alexanders Chimney. Now I understand why it is #SnobbyBobby favorite route in the park. I can’t say enough how grateful I am for having such a good mentor. He definitely brings out the best of me: A mentality of getting s%^t done. #noheadlampsneeded #tt #uphillathlete #mountaineering #rmnp #climbing #iceclimbing #mixedclimbing #mountains
Fun times torturing my mom in #RMNP the other day. Made it to The Loch which was frozen and beautiful. Surprisingly the trail was really well traveled/packed and we made it up there just with micro spikes. Felt like a perfect spring day....during winter 🤔 #GlobalWarming • • • @rockynps #rockymountainnationalpark #TheLoch #LochLake #LochVale #GlacierGorge #mountains #nature #estespark
This young bull must be feeling frisky! The wildlife viewing inside Rocky Mountain National Park is second to none. Best viewing is early morning or late evening. The west entrance to the park is about 5 minutes from Moose Manor. Follow the link in our bio for pricing and availability. Summer months are starting to book so get your dates before someone else does! ✅ #RMNP #rockymountainnationalpark #VRBO #Airbnb #Homeaway #GrandLake #moosemanor #vacationrental #wildlifeviewing #elkcanswim #friskyfeller #bookitnow #ourhomeisyourhome #premierpartner #airbnbsuperhost

mountain sun is quirky, sometimes ya only have a few minutes of golden before it goes in its pocket. So I’m extra thankful for these two and their willingness to run across this field to catch the ☀️
Cub Lake Trailhead, RMNP. I strongly recommend going in the middle of winter to enjoy an absence of crowds, shy wildlife and total. Silence. #rmnp #cublake #nationalpark #aintnobodybutthecoyotesouttoday
Went up to Boulder today to gather up my tired child (finals). We drove up to Estes Park for fun, and stopped by the Stanley Hotel, of The Shining fame, and where I waited tables the summer after college graduation. I’ve often sat on the front porch enjoying the beautiful views of the peaks, including Longs, with Rocky Mountain National Park just a few miles down the road—and of course the Jack Nicholson impersonator wandering the grounds.🤣 For many years I remember this hotel boarded up and empty-a waste with its history and this view. A lovely December day. . #ig_colorado #stanleyhotel #estespark #hotel #picturetokeep_bnw #bnw_rose #bw_perfect #coloradical #colorado_creative #coloradoinstagram #rmnp #bnw_captures #bnwmood #bnw_greatshots #infraredphotography #infraredworld #kolarivision #all_bnwshots #ethereal_moods #bnw_photography #denvernow #visitdenver #coloradolife #bnw_demand #rsa_light #beautifulview #magic_marvels #frontporch #historichotel
A great weekend!! Happy holidays y’all!! Witness to: amazing sunrise, my friends being engaged in Rocky Mountain National Park, a ridiculous pub crawl in a fleece onesie, and a solo cruising day at ABay. ##LIVIN #GETSOME #skiing #rmnp #abay #broadway #happyholidays
Today I say goodbye to Manitoba and Riding Mountain National Park. Manitoba is not a place I ever thought I’d end up living for 8 months but I have loved my time here and I’m sad to see it go.

Not too long ago, I was in a space where climbing mountains seemed too much: carrying what wasn’t mine, losing my way, and staring at the mountain tops from deep valleys. ⠀ ⠀ As I started asking for help to bridge the gap (see what i did there? 😅) where I wanted my life to be versus where it actually was, things began to change. I started investing in others to invest in myself. That’s when the real work began. ⠀ ⠀ Has it been easy? No. But sooooo worth it. ⠀ ⠀ Hosting a retreat to serve women who want it all has been on my heart for over a year. Women who want fulfilling relationships, healthy minds, bodies, & habits and energizing goals with the self awareness to make it all happen. ⠀ ⠀ The Reset Retreat is a one day event (with an ongoing community) designed to jumpstart that process. To give you new tools, insights, and community to encourage you to live a full life— a life lived from the inside out. ⠀ ⠀ You guys, it’s not too late to sign up! The link to the retreat is in my bio ☺️. Still have questions? Shoot me an email and I’ll send ya more info! I hope to see ya there! ❤️

Finally got outside in the snow ⛄️ with the camera. This is one of my favorite views from #rmnp . We normally take this hike during the morning and catch sunrise, but this time we started later in the day and caught the light as the sun was setting and it was hitting that ridge just perfectly! A great hike with some great views, so it was well worth going through the cold, wind, and snow!

Making Monday Awesome #rmnp #colorado
#funfact Did u know this Friday is the winter solstice? Yay for days starting to get longer :) I for one can't wait till summer
It’s me! Enjoying winter things! Outside! 😝 I now understand the appeal of waking up ass early to spend a day outdoors in the winter - the peace and quiet are unreal. Having an enthusiastically outdoorsy partner and the promise of dank sandwiches afterward helps a lot too. #snowshoeing #rmnp #winterincolorado

One of my coolest moments of 2018: exploring Rocky Mountain National Park during the full moon and seeing the peaks illuminated like never before. The moonlit, rugged scene was so ethereal and magical – I saw my beloved park in an entirely new and unbelievable light. Being a part of it was so surreal; a waking dream. We also encountered a myriad of wildlife such as coyotes, moose, elk and a bobcat. I can’t help but feel fulfilled when given such grand opportunities to witness such divine beauty. What a wonderful world there is out there. 🏔🌝⁣ ⁣ To see more of the memories throughout my year, refer to my new blog post: “2018: A Big Year in My Life” → mindyonthemove.com (click on the link in my bio to read). ⁣ ⁣ I will also be posting a “2018 Memory of the Day” in my IG story until the new year! 🎊⁣ ⁣ 📸 snapped by my girl, @jocerenea
It seems like it gets dark SO early right now but by the end of the week our days will slowly begin getting longer. Regardless of time of day, we’ll never get over the golden hour effect in this photo! #flowerwall #wedding #boulderwedding #sweetsunrise #coloradoflorist #boulderflorist #weddingseason2019 #bohobrides #rockymountianbride #rmnp #springbouquet #happyfriday #fridayflowers #flowerlove #flowersinherhair #theknot #redrockamphitheater #summerweddingtrends #theknot #bohemianbride
Sometimes we all need a little spontaneous trip to help us feel rejuvenated and lift our spirits. My place is in the mountains ⛰ where is your special place you like to go to rejuvenate?
Can't explain how much I love these mountains.
I'd be perfectly happy hiking under these trees every day.
