The best thing about hiking in the snow is you can do all of the fun snow activities at the same time. Whether it’s building a snowman, making snow angels or having snowball fights. There are moments that call for refreshing your mind, clearing all of your problems and just have fun with life.
Happy waterfall Wednesday from one of Oregon’s most popular gems! Took me a while to finally come visit this roadside attraction, but I’m glad I did! #waterfallwednesday #oregon
The #AppalachianTrail is more than a footpath: it's the sweeping views, the plants and animals, the communities, and the people dedicated to celebrating and protecting this national treasure. What do you call all of that? We call it #WildEast Through Wild East, ATC's newest initiative, we will highlight the importance of the A.T. and its surrounding lands, which contain and protect some of the most important landscapes, wildlife habitats, recreational opportunities and historically-significant areas in the eastern United States.

“Instagram vs. Reality” There’s a reason I share so much personal stuff on a platform that I know strangers can access. When I first started using Instagram around 17 or 18, I followed mostly friends and family until the explore page introduced me to photographers, models, and bloggers. Soon, most of my feed was actually people I didn’t even know. I formed a love/hate relationship with Instagram. On one hand, I loved having constant inspiration at my fingertips. On the other hand, I hated that my life didn’t seem as exciting, adventurous, luxurious, or simple as the people I was following. My small town life felt, well, small. I often thought, “Why not me?” Why wasn’t I good enough? Why didn’t I have so many friends? Why didn’t I look like that? Why didn’t I have so much money? When I moved to Oregon, I met lots of “instafamous” people with hundreds of thousands of followers. Suddenly, I was behind the scenes. Instead of just what they shared on social media, I got to see the reality of their day to day lives. I got to see how they treated others, how often they were on social media, and how much work went on to keep up their Instagram appearance. It really messed me up. Sure, I knew that “Instagram is just a highlight reel”, but it really didn’t click until I was faced with people treating me differently because I had under 1k followers. Gross. I didn’t realize that I didn’t even know the people I was idolizing and comparing myself to. I promise there’s a point to this whole story: This is why I share so much with you. I don’t want to be idolized and I don’t want you to think I’m someone I’m not. Just like you, I go through highs and lows. Just like you, I juggle a busy schedule and (struggle to) make time for being outside and being active. Just like you, I want to live full of new, adventurous experiences, I want to pursue and achieve my dreams, and I want to make a big, positive impact on the world. But I don’t want to do it at the cost of making you feel bad about yourself or your life. I want to encourage you to get out there and get after it! Chase the life you want because it’s out there! You can’t get it by looking at a screen and wishing it was yours.✨
In Canyonlands National Park, there’s a spiderweb of trails that traverses a seemingly impenetrable rock formation called The Needles. It’s one of the weirdest, most scrambly hikes I’ve ever been on, and I’m pretty sure I had a huge grin on my face the entire time. I felt like I was on Mars, colossal red rock formations crawling skyward like huge phalluses. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it! . . . #canyonlands #canyonlandsnationalpark #theneedles #werehikers #idhikethatcrew #wildernessbadass #wildernessfreaks #hikertrash #hikingislife #hikeyourownhike #hikers #takeahike #goexplore #utahisrad #utahgram
What is one of my favorite ways to handle stress? I’m so glad that you asked! 😉 Stop what you’re doing. . Breathe. . Get out in nature. . Breathe. . Look for the beauty. . Breathe. .

these island winters are uh-mazing
The PNW holds so much beauty, even during the rainy season. The moody clouds and churning waters speak volumes for this land. Telling the tales of past adventures and making promises for the seasons to come. #reflectionperfection
If I could give a book more than 5 stars I would give this one all the stars plus more ! I without a doubt 100% feel in the depths of my soul that words have a magical way of finding us when we need them the most . @aspenmatis words in the book #girlinthewoods found me time and time again. So thankful for this read and the inspirational message that Aspen Matis spreads through her writing . So my #2 read of #2019 is none other than “Girl in the Woods” by Aspen Matis .

Looking back on the last two years, I’ve finished a university degree, worked for large corporations and climbed countless mountains in both Calgary and Toronto, and spent considerable time touring all around Europe. ⁣ ⁣ Those who know me know that this isn’t enough. In 2019, I plan to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail, which spans 2,192 miles up the East Coast of the US, beginning just north of Atlanta and ending at the summit of Katahdin. One more adventure. ⁣ ⁣ T-1 month until Georgia. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #thruhike #atthruhike #at2019 #appalachiantrail #backpacking #takeahike #osprey #livebravely #nobo

This Saturday is our first "Women's Hike" of the spring semester. (We will do these the last Saturday of each month.) Come enjoy the company of some awesome women and enjoy one of Austin's beautiful trails. Comment below if you'd like more info. (And YES, kids are invited too) #midtownaustin #takeahike
Squatted here last night after taking a late ferry to Catalina. The wee fox that inhabit the island scared the bejesus out of me when it came right up next to me in the dark. #transcatalinatrail #hermitgulch #travelingfartist #partytravel #takeahike #blazeac60 #granitegearpacks
I’ve been pretty down lately with this whole shoulder injury. Physically not being able to do things for myself has taken a tole mentally. I was listening to a podcast yesterday and in one of the parts it was like it was speaking to me or about me. This gentleman had literally the same injury and were/had been going through the same issues. You take for granted sometimes even just the littlest things, like putting on or off a shirt or for me lifting my arm to have someone put deodorant on me. Knowing that I still have 12 weeks to possibly even longer of recovery just can put you mentally off. But in the podcast he mentioned one there is always a light at the end of the tunnel and that sometimes you need a second, third or even fourth to look at things. Yes I have 12 weeks but it’s not 6-8 months like it could have been without surgery and I have a very good support system. I couldn’t do anything without my husband and am beyond grateful for him. Even at times when I’m frustrated that I can’t do something and he just sits patiently waiting knowing it’s hard for me to ask. I feel like this podcast was a fantastic reminder of what I truly need to remember. I know I still have a long road ahead but there is light at the end of that tunnel. ----------------------------------------------- #RuffingitREI #ruffwear #PNWonderland #MountainStandard #BriskOutdoors #StayAndWander #TakeAHike #OutdoorWomen #CampVibes #WhereDoYouRoam #WanderWashington #Backcountrypaws #KeepItContagious #MindTheMountains #AndShesDopeToo #Exploretocreate #OptOutside #adventureneverends #HerPNWLife #MountainMama #WildernessPeople #wildernessbadass #giveaussielove #UpperLeftUSA #TheGreatPNW #campingwithdogs
Today is my birthday 😳 THE BIG 40 😳 and my plan is to get lost in my thoughts for a bit this morning, and go on a hike. Truth be told, I’ve been excited about getting older every year, until this birthday. Maybe it’s because I’m unsatisfied with where my life is right now or that I’m not celebrating it in Greece or Iceland like I had planned. What ever the reason is, I think a little perspective in nature will help me get grounded again and off this self pity train. 🧘‍♀️🥾❤️🧘‍♀️🥾❤️🧘‍♀️🥾❤️🧘‍♀️🥾❤️ Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest let’s talk a little about why I chose this photo today. Cypress is an oil I like to bring with on hikes. Rubbing a few drops mixed with a carrier oil on my legs right before and some time right after a hike, it helps with circulation while also invigorating the senses. No joke I think it also helps me feel a little more in-tune with nature. Like........I smell like nature so I must be one with nature. 🧘‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Introducing my new buddy, Flat Logan! My cousin, Logan, made him for me so we can go on adventures together since I live in Virginia and he lives in Illinois. We took this pic in West Virginia on a road trip back to VA from holiday break! Stay tuned to see all the fun we have together! 🐕😍 👦🏼
Even in the winter months, it’s important to find a way to venture outdoors.

6 inches is actually pretty average so... . . Measure. Share. Compare. Enjoy!!!
The rock formations at the tidepools never gets old for me. It's a completely different place every time I go! I definitely prefer a low tide 😍 . . . #tidepools #tidepoolmagic #ocean #oceanphotography #oceanlove #ebbandflow #hightide #lowtide #erosion #sealife #urchins #natural #nofilter #prettycolors #agameoftones #justgoshoot #takeahike #breathe #beinspired #loveyourlife #l4l #likeforlikes #goodmorning #riseandvibe
There’s this part of me that is a better person when I’m in the woods. I’m more driven. I appreciate the small things more. I meditate for longer periods of time. But it’s not all this beautiful. My impatience still lingers.... maybe is even heightened. I take less care of my physical body. I get dangerously risky. I need this balance between the worlds. Yin + Yang. Immersed in both civilization and the wilderness. To bounce around to the different sides of my best self. Maybe we all do... . Craving a backpacking trip these days. Wanting to make a summer plan. Shall I return to this magnificent place in Colorado? Can I learn new lessons from a repeat? I bet so. . . . #takeahike #exploremore #optoutside #yogaeverywhere #yogaeverydamnday #yogini #dancerpose #natarajasana #sunrise #staywild #reconnect #coloradolife #backpackerlife #alpineglow #maroonbells #backpacker #lakereflection
I had 3 jobs and have been slowly quitting them over the past 3 months and tomorrow is my last day of the last one, yet I am still carrying an iPad because of work. If you know me this isn’t a surprise. Also nicknamed the GPS extra weight and I though that was funny, but it gives my parents a piece of mind.

“Wherever you go, no matter the weather, always bring your own sunshine.” ☀️ I sometimes go to the mountains to be reminded that while life can be messy and scary, it can also be simultaneously beautiful and magical. The mountains always ground me and bring me back to this place of gratitude for all of life’s experiences, even the messy and terrifying ones 💙😍 #perspective #gratitude #positivevibes #winterwonderland #adventureseeker #mountainwoman #socalhiker #icehousecanyon #hikecalifornia #hiker #optoutside #intothewild #getlost #takeahike #womenwhohike #modernhiker #angelesnationalforest #hiking_my_life #natureismychurch #latepost #sundayfunday #hikeon #peace #love #namaste
