Mountains aren’t just funny, they’re hill areas.
Just one of those magical places you can only see to believe 🌈 •
enjoying the view from the first day climb on the Overland Track, Australia. carrying everything for a week on your back was heavy but satisfying. We were actually snowed in after this for a day, but it felt great to push through the terrible conditions. /////

Day 14 31K
Made a terrible decision to road walk instead of kayaking.
But the trail balanced out the morning’s suffering, the afternoon was wonderful. We walked up the Waikare river. I kinda felt like a salmon, struggling upstream. At times the banks rose steeply, the rainforest of trees was lush, palms and ferns giving tropical vibes. We even jumped off a small cliff in one spot and swam in the crisp and refreshing river. The cool water helped my feet feel better from the pavements incessant pounding.

7 entered town together but only 3 depart. Both weatherman and mastermind dropped 2 kilos from their base weight like bosses. Then we walked to the beachside town of Paihia, enjoyed fish n chips, and cold cider. A solid day

Ever feel like this world is so beautiful that it's almost hard to believe it's real?
We do, often. ❂
Anyone else struggle with drinking enough water daily? I sure do. 🙋🏽♀️ I tend to prioritize staying hydrated during the summer months, for the obvious reasons, but I forget to keep up with it when the temps start dropping. Water is the key ingredient to overall health and fitness and I have no doubt that if I keep up with it hydration will also help stave off illness. I have added a water logging app to my Garmin watch to keep me accountable. I’ll also need to get creative with how I get enough because I already have trouble keeping warm in the winter. I’m thinking of drinking it hot with fresh lemon and ginger. #hydrationiskey
What are your favorite ways to dress up warm water?
Enjoy every moment (that you're not in a freezing cold lake) 🌲🍂
Frozen toes and happy hearts 💚
Shot in 2015 on a crop sensor and a 10-20mm Sigma, before I really knew what to look for with comps. This is as basic as it gets, but even without foreground elements or fancy cloud formations, this peak screams, “Look at me!” And that’s one of the best things about this planet we live on...the fact that simplicity and beauty can be rolled into one.
They were out of vegan donuts so needless to say I walked away with a stomach ache. #intoleranceszn
Grateful for the wind that carries me.
Trillion star hotel...nothing better ⛺️ ✨
A trip to Yosemite is always a good idea ✨
The American Bison: a 6’5, 2,000 lb beast. Yellowstone National Park, WY.
I spy me at The Crack. This is one of my favourite hiking trails at Killarney Provincial Park - just when you think you’re done climbing, another rock escarpment awaits you. The trail and climb was stunning and I’d do it all over again.
This is Silver Peak in Killarney Provincial Park. To even get to the start of the hiking trail, it’s a 45 minute canoe ride through Bell Lake. The 8km hike up 1770ft took 4 hours. It was sweaty and hot but the views were totally worth it. I would do it all over again!
What’s the longest hike you’ve been on?
