An exciting couple months of expeditions are on the horizon with 4 back to back polar adventures between April and May. - Polar Shakedown Training - North Pole Last Degree Ski - Svalbard Ski Expedition - Greenland Icecap Crossing
Being from the desert, living a hop skip and jump away from the forest, anytime there is a change in weather I’m sure to take advantage of it. This past weekend we went from a wet 64 degrees to a 40 degree down pour to a 20 degree dark blinding blizzardish type snowfall. Ended up having to pull off on the nearest fire road and call it home. #rooftoptentliving #homeiswhereyouparkit #southwest #tuffstuff4x4 #arbusa #wickedlightbars #vaultcargo #campingwithdogs #toyotausa #toyota #toyotatacoma #livebravely #outsidemagazine #modernoutdoorsman #unrulydreamers #ICONequipped #modernoutdoors #adventure #thruthepaces #outfitandexplore #overlandbound #overlandtacoma #neverstopexploring #ourcamplife #keepitwild #forgeoverland #adventurelife #ourwild
September 11, 2011 - The crow sits as if he awaits me to continue on my journey. Alone. Motionless. He then flies off as soon as he greets me with a "squawwwww". The crow is visualized in Tibetan Buddhism as an incarnation of Mahakala, whose name literally means the ‘Great Black One.’ Mahakala is the protector of the tents of nomadic Tibetans, and of monasteries, and of all Tibetan Buddhism. He is charged with the tasks of pacifying hindrances; enriching life, virtue and wisdom; attracting people to Buddhism; and destroying confusion and ignorance. ° ° ° ° At this point I was beginning to have difficulty keeping my head straight and hallucinations began to set in. The next morning, waiting out a hail storm, I would fall in and out of consciousness with the first, and only, vision of my life. A vision of dying and crows picking my body apart on the open plateau. As if I was watching a film, I was neither frightened or sad. It was a calm, like nothing I've felt before. It was the comfort of actualizing my death and return to the heavens, that made me realize I had to get out. I had finally made peace with who I was, where I was, and what I found. It was my rebirth. This is my reincarnation. That was after I had been examining my body in the tent...every tendon, muscle, vein protruding. I became so aware of my physical being, and the tent protecting me felt as if it was a coffin...buried alive. I had...to keep...going...I was going to die.

Expedition Mode! It's never easy planning big expeditions to the most remote places on the planet but it is these types of experiences that keep pulling me in deeper. The last time I flew here I knew I would be back and now that my good friend Rdub is back in the game (as my expedition partner) I'm stoked to start prepping for 2020!

Reliving my days of exploring this beautiful country
Sometimes you find a place that makes you feel like a kid again. This spot reminded me of climbing up all the door jambs in my house as a child. #outdoorslife #hikinglife #outdooradventures #climbinglife #optoutside #instaadventure #lovethislife #wanderlust #herPNWlife #climblikeagirl #borntoclimb #outdoorlife #instagood #instaclimb #unrulydreamers
With exploring nature, educating myself, and observing wildlife I have learned that death is just as important as the life of a creature. From watching the salmon run and die, to be spread about the great forests by scavengers, nourishing the trees creating some of the largest in the world. In remote Manitoba, stumbling upon spaces where herds of elk seem to have all past in one hard winter. While along secluded rivers finding antlers strewn along the shorelines, revealing details to our past from sawed off ends, to wolf chewed tips. In many ways I find myself more observant and curious of these remains. Trying to understand the past of a creature and connect to a time it’s tracks would have walked along side mine. “No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for.” #martinlutherkingjr • • • Captured with @hitcase pro and wide lens. #hitcase #explore #thealaskalife #alaska #packrafting #exploremag #enroutemag #outside_project #otvadventures #discoverearth #mydiscoverycanada #earthofficial #sharecangeo #cangeotravel #getoutthere #unrulydreamers #msrgear #thetoolforadventure #wwf #yourshotphotographer #natgeowild #garmin #valhallakingdom #death #ecology #adventureculture #mec_nation

I find it amusing that this is called the Sunshine Coast. I mean, yeah, this turned to sunshine the next day, but it probably rains for 90% of the fall/winter/spring months. I just hope there haven’t been tourists coming from other countries expecting a tropical white sand beach paradise, only to be greeted with (an equally beautiful) pebbley beach with chilly dark water and most likely a spot of rain. . . . . . . #northwestcreatives #vancitybuzz #northwestisbest #themountainsarecalling #exploretocreate #theoutbound #liveauthentic #adventureculture #pnwonderland #lifeofadventure #wildernessculture #explorebc #hellobc #discoverbc #explorecanada #vancouvertrails #hikebc #bcparks #outdoorvancouver #wildernessmakesyoubetter #damgoodtrips #ilovebc #unrulydreamers #livebravely #campeveryday #mountaincollective #meclangley #goodtimesoutside #allaboutadventures #mecstaffer
Coming back is always difficult. I am not asking for pity. I understand that it is a privilege to have the opportunity to travel in the capacity that I do. Please do not misunderstand me, I am incredibly grateful both for the experiences I have had abroad and for the life I get to come home to. I have had my life idealized by countless people. I am sure that I don’t help the misconceptions with the photos that I share. My life on instagram looks pretty damn great, and honestly most days I would agree. At the same time, I am still human. And right now I am a human who feels a bit lost. It’s hard to live in extremes. One day I am standing on top of the most beautiful summit, with amazing partners surrounded by a lifetime of inspiration - four days later I am sitting in rainy Bellingham alone, staring at my computer trying to find the motivation to work. I can do anything I want right now, but I have no idea what to do. Sometimes I think that climbing has ruined me, like it’s some kind of drug that has destroyed my dopamine intakes. I wish that I could find joy in playing video games or watching football games. But I just don’t. I feel like I need ridiculous adventures and physical challenges to be happy. What am I going to do when life has to slow down? Has anyone else struggled with this after coming home from a climbing trip? Or after returning from any wild adventure? Any advice on how you handled it? I tried to do some research today but couldn’t find much. Maybe just time. Time always helps
Morning wake ups over Yosemite National Park. I ran to the top of the second view point to see this magical moment the other morning. Now every morning since I day dream of being back in the mountains. It’s time to plan the next adventure 😀. . . #explorebc #hikebc #photography #explorecanada #thankyoucanada #goodtimesoutside #dailyhivevan #herpnwlife #hellobc #sunrise #artofvisuals #exploretocreate #unrulydreamers #hiking #sheadventures #expandyourplayground #getoutside #optoutside #pnwcollective #wanderlust #livefolk #socality #stayandwander #thatpnwlife #outdoorvancouver #happyadventuring @pnwdiscovered #yosemite

that tajine life
I hopped into @elliot.whitehead ’s car at 2am and the drive to Rocky Mountain National Park flew by as we made our introductions. When we pulled into the near empty Bear Lake parking lot at 9,500 ft, we could already hear the wind just utterly whipping against Elliot’s 4Runner. I laid back in the car with my eyes closed trying to enjoy the warmth of artificial heating for a few last moments, and then we threw the doors open and hit the trail...or lack of it. With the recent snowfall and relative unpopularity of our destination during the winter, the snowpack began to fade away before the first mile was up. By the time we hit our first alpine lake, the Loch, we were in two feet of untouched snow, breaking trail. We got lost and backtracked too many times to count, and honestly the only reason we actually made it was because Elliot had the path programmed onto his @suunto GPS watch. I’ll go into more of the story as I post more from the trip - but the reason I drag on about this, is to say we frickin’ earned this view.

Snow day ❄️☃️ PC: @makylahinrichs
The stars were just too irresistible not to stop at Kenosha Pass for a quick shot the other night as we drove home from BV. 😍😍 Not my best but I'm happy with it considering my blind set up. 😁 • Who else is ready for some camping under the stars?? ✋✋ • • • • #astrophotography #amongthewild #mountaingirls #colorado_fame #colorado_creative #coloradountamed #coloradotography #outdoorsociety #getoutside #mtngirls #goatworthy #adventureenthusiasts #liveferal #forceofnature #sheexplores #choosemountainswomen #todsl #themountainsarecalling #wwhmember #unrulydreamers #mountainpeopleunite #awakethesoul #mountainpeopleunite #coloradocameraclub #jj_colorado #womenwhohike #natural_colorado
A little nature to fill your feed this evening. Today’s high was 75° and when the sun decided to come out this afternoon, I couldn’t resist taking a walk after work with @cbeckett14. ☀️ Alex took the pups for a run and I came home to start cooking dinner. I’ve got Cajun pasta cooking in the Instant Pot and John Oliver on TV. Hope you all have had a relaxing day so far... even if you had to work on a holiday like me! . . . . . #hammondsferry #northaugusta #savannahriver #exploreaugusta #loveaugusta #halfmoonoutfitters #seeyououtthere #folkgood #theoutbound #modernoutdoors #repyourwater #protecttheplacesyoulove #getoutstayout #keepitwild #adventureanywhere #outsideculture #unrulydreamers #stayandwander
With a flooded river and eroding banks, even avoiding pulling off onto the sandy shores, my gear still had the common look of a hard, dirty day. The continuous rain would wash it all clean to then have a wave tossing silt back up again, and the cycle repeats. I could feel the grit in my hair, impossible to remove. The simplest of tasks became some of the most frustrating as the mud slowly built up in each nook and cranny. My toothbrush soon became an essential tool to cleaning and closing zippers. Water filters became clogged with every use and the morning’s coffee had the texture of each shoreline with in it. And yet, each day I would rinse my toothbrush off, brush my teeth, pack up and carry on. With a clean smile. “Life may try to knock you down but be persistent with your passions- cultivate grit, resilience, tenacity and endurance success will come.” #amitray • • • #explore #unrulydreamers #pelicancase #map #valhallakingdom #mec_nation #garmin #sealline #seallinedrybags #gps #otvadventures #optoutside #outside_project #mec #buff #msrgear #trustyourwater #thruthepaces #neverstopexploring #paddle #thetoolforadventure #womenwhoexplore #womenwhopaddle #outdoorwomen #adventureculture #exploremag #thealaskalife #waterflowpaddling
Screaming hands, cold toes, brittle ice and another fat lip. Are countered by hooked out ice, hot tea, a snickers bar and high fives. #oodelally
So I bought some @msr_gear snowshoes and they were more expensive than my futon. The way life should be. #revoascent #msrgear #unrulydreamers #snowshoes #snowshoeing #liveferal #makeadventure #getoutside #mayflowergulch #rockymountains #colorado

Sad to leave this magical place
Repost @cedarwright There will always be something undeniably alluring about a first ascent for me, especially when it leads to a beautiful virgin summit like the one on the right. Yesterday @onceuponaclimb @stonerideryuji @reikaadventures and I capped off our awesome trip to the Faroe Islands by getting the first ascent of #faroenuff a wild and quality tower route complete with an exciting leap from our boat to the tower to start out the ascent, and then an even trickier leap back onto the boat to complete the mission! What a cool adventure! Amazingly the arch on the left was ascended way back in the day by bird hunters, and entailed 5.10 free soloing over the water in woolen Faroese climbing slippers!

"It's getting colder and colder up here," I say as I throw on my microspikes to facilitate running down the snow covered side of Mt Wheeler. Best mini vacation ever. #mtwheeler #newmexico #highestpoint

FUN FACT: I have been obsessed with horses my entire life. Like I tried to convince my parents I could save up enough money to buy my own when I was 10 (we lived in the dead center of town) 😂 So it should come as no surprise that I begged Stu to pull over so I could get a closer look at these beauties today on our way to the hot springs.

One of my all-time favorite adventures was a trip to Antarctica. I've never been to a place that was more pristine, pure and raw. I hope that one day my children will have a chance to explore Antarctica and that it will be as pristine then as it was for me. If you could have your child explore one place in the world, where would you send her or him? #antarctica #thelastfrontier #explore #travelwithkids #adventurewithkids #adventuretravel #adventure #optoutside #bottomoftheworld #naturephotography #natgeoadventure #natgeotravel #instatravel #unrulydreamers #bucketlist
Last photo in WA for our three countries, continents, tries (Since we live in WA, there will be many future photos here). I always say that George fell in love with me because I came with all my own toys: kayaks, skis, climbing gear, ice tools, tents, etc...

We chose the name, School of Adventure, because that is essentially how we'd like to raise our kiddos. In addition to traditional education, we hope that they will learn through playing out in nature and traveling. For those who don't already know us, the Adventure of Henry and Petra started well before they were born and included three rounds of in vitro fertilization in three different countries, on three continents and one very incredible, gracious, selfless friend who became their gestational surrogate mum. I'll be posting photos over the next few weeks that coincide with that journey. We'll start with WA state where we had our first round of IVF.

This weekend is the 23rd annual Ouray Ice Festival. When I made the decision to learn how to ice climb with Chcks with Picks, I had no idea that I was embarking on a life changing adventure. I met some of the most amazing, fearless, inspiring (and not just the guides) people. I left feeling stronger and more empowered than I had in years. I am so fortunate to have made some true friends--I found my tribe. #girlsthatclimb #climber #climbsomething #climblikeagirl #sheclimbs #natgeoadventure #unrulydreamers
