Another ridiculous desert weekend full of good buds, onesies, slot canyons, and shenanigans is in the books. All of last year’s Grumps have been sent to the Snow Gods in anticipation of the following season... 🔥☃️🔥
you don’t even know, that each morning when i wake up, i wake up to your happy feet thumping around upstairs on the hardwood floor. your grandma åsa likes to apologize for it but i really wish she knew, those “bah-dump bah-dump bah-dump” noises touch me. something to look forward to.
because these past few months, they’ve been hard on me. they have come with a whole lot of new. to hear those happy feet in the morning make me smile. it’s something constant. something to count on. something to see me through.
when i pulled up in the drive way that day, there you were, waggy tail and all. the month of june surfaced scars in me yet you didn’t falter when all i felt able to do was crawl. so crawl i did and love you gave until those hard days return to a few. when i pushed everyone out, you pushed in, you gave me something to lean in-to.
so lean-in i did and playful you came, barreling in with heart. you taught me what it looks like to take it day by day. heavens love. you were there for me from the start.
the love of a landlord

“The mountains are calling & I must go” 🏔🏔🏔
Embarking on a multi state road trip for the next few weeks up the coast to Washington, then heading back down thru Idaho. Send me your recs!! 🏔
Summer has felt eternal for me this year after spending the winter in India, so I’m excited to experience some cold & snow along with all the beautiful new places. Packing is proving difficult with all my bulky winter clothes though lol. What’s your favorite winter activity?? 🏔🏔🏔
Rock Monday's socks off 🤩
🎼🎤Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space
I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space
Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never want to die
Born to be wild
Born to be wild

I OUTED MYSELF IN FRONT OF A ROOM OF PEOPLE.
It was a surreal experience sharing this piece of me that I had not yet said to many people.
I was THE BULLY.
I was the one that said and did hurtful things to a number of girls in high school.
I was the one that used my fists to hurt others that I thought had done me wrong or challenged me.
And I was proud of how "tough" I was.
THIS TRUTH HURTS.
I know what it FEELS like to be the bully.
When your life feels out of control and the anger within you is REALLY REAL- and can happen very quickly.
I KNOW THE BULLY.
This truth still haunts me- as I work through healing the deeper and darker parts of WHO I WAS - I know that I have the tools to heal this and release the SHAME of it.
DEEP SELF LOVE.
DEEP SELF COMPASSION.
DEEP SELF FORGIVENESS.
these are all SUPERPOWERS and how we gain back those lost pieces of who we are.
those ones we left behind.
the ones that got taken from us at such a young age.
and we did all we knew HOW to do to find those pieces again- even it was harmful to others.
I AM SORRY for what I did - I was feircely protecting a broken little girl inside me.
Now I protect her in healthy ways.
Now I KNOW she is safe and loved.
I have a much healthier relationship to anger - and how to let it rise, to let it be honoured and useful.
I AM NOT THE BULLY ANYMORE.
To those of you that can relate to this.
I SEE YOU.
I HONOUR YOU.
I LOVE YOU.
I watched @colorthecrag
take their group photo and almost started crying. I’ve seen the boulder fields in the southeast get over run with women and it was beautiful to see it taken over by such a diverse group of climbers, to see everyone cheering each other on and supporting and uplifting their fellow climbers. Absolutely 100% worth working four, ten hour shifts to see the climbing community at its best.
Wowza, what a fun full weekend celebrating our anniversary and the life we’ve created together. Started off with a 4:30 a.m. alarm and two ferry crossings to an island where we ran a 10k trail race (slower than molasses) but we did manage to run the whole thing, 700’ of hill gains and all. Headed straight to the pub for some greasy foods and beer after those 6.7 sweaty miles romping around in the forest. Decided to swing into the climbing gym on the way home (because apparently I thought it would be fun to have not just sore legs but also sore arms), and we had a blast trying some harder routes and laughing our bootys off.
Today we journeyed down to the Tatoosh Range to scramble up not one, but two fun little peaks in the glorious warm October sunshine. Nothing quite like getting your hands on rock and scaling up for views like this! We got to hike in and have a summit picnic with new friends; the incredible guys from @rescuefreedom
who are doing world changing work to end sexual slavery. 🏔
So grateful for Redbeard and his willingness to really live and share experiences together for this one beautiful life we get to have.
Back at it after some (a lot) of time off. We’ve been camping a lot and lacking in finding hikes to actually hike. My body is super sore but my heart is super happy. Also, Ryan Dunne told me he loved me like 42 times on the trail today and my heart could explode 😍
There is a whole world out there.
Pack your backpack, your best friends and go.

Our friend Bert is visiting us from Seattle, so we took a leisurely drive down to Big Sur. He had never been, and was blown away by the coast and mountains :)
So many exciting things happening today!
Besides me speaking on the same stage as one of my biggest mentors and sharing my story of Self Destruction to My Wild Revolution.. TODAY is your last day to grab your ticket for the Wild(h)er Event happening in 2 weeks!
It will be a full day that will leave your mind, body & soul remembering more of WHO you are as a WOMAN ( & how powerful you are!) You will leave with a new found knowledge of what you are capable of.. You will leave knowing how to HEAL.
You will leave EMPOWERED and having tools to move forward.
We will CELEBRATE US.
We will HONOUR ancient the tradition of Women Gathering to create change within our selves, our families and communities!
Cannot WAIT to see you there!
Link is below.. Stay Wild,
The pictures I post here don’t fully portray what my job is like as an Expedition Leader in Alaska. I work 84-100 hours a week, and you might be surprised by how many of those hours are actually spent on a computer on board the ship where I work. I spend time reviewing permits and writing permit reports, I make voyage plans, I coordinate ops, I write voyage reports... if I stay on top of all that, I get to go out and play. And I think this photo really shows how happy that makes me 😉 🌊 📸 @wantsomemohr
On the road again.
It feels strange, after 7 weeks of being stationary and 'having' a whole house. The thing that I have to get used to again the most (and which should not have come as a surprise really, since it's not the first time), is the lack of artificial light 💡 It keeps amazing me what a difference that makes for our bio rhythm (well, for mine at least 🤷🏻♀️)

Ah, fall in #NewEngland
where the streets are lined with scarecrows. 🍁🍂🍃 And you decide the best way to sleep before hosting an obstacle race is to do a 60 mile ride. #whatsworthit #whenwomenlead
From New York 🗽 to Montana ⛰️. Very excited these handmade National Park coordinates necklaces are going to a local Montana vintage store. 🔨 Any guesses which national park these are?
This place is pretty rad. People have been telling me about it for a few years now, but I never really had a reason to come visit. That is until @savhappy
invited me down to help kick off the season with @shemovesmountains_eastcoast
how could I pass up the opportunity? Well, I have to say, this place continues to impress me. From the climbing, community, new friends and of course the climbing...yeah, I think I might already be planning my return trip.
working through the start or the crux on Stonehenge while also fighting off the hordes of massive spiders. Welcome to the south y’all.
Well damn, Spirit. Messages received. “Trust the mystery in life.” Such a beautiful, beautiful part of this experience on Earth. And such a fucking hard one at times!! Here is a reframe that I try to hold in my heart, although it’s challenging to see at times. If you don’t know what’s going to happen - what your career is, who your partner is, how many children you’ll have, how much abundance will be in your life, how many friendships, etc. - then really anything is possible. Meaning (and really hear this), INFINITE possibility. I’m in this work too. Am not able to sit in this all the time, and today in particular I thought “I just want to know that it will all be ok and I’ll get what I want.” So I pulled out my beloved @the_moondeck
and received. Just what I needed. Trust the mystery in life - what could be possible for you?! #transformation #tranformationalcoaching #personaldevelopment #freedom #trust #spirit #lifecoach #wildher #moondeck
“If I didn’t wake up to watch the sun come up on a backpacking trip, I’d feel like something huge was missing. There’s something about those mountains that bring about a sense of peace and tranquility to start the day off that just can’t be beat.” 🏔☀️

What an incredible birthday stay-cation! Spent the last few days relaxing in the hot springs and catching some incredible fish!! Couldn’t have rang in my 32nd year any better than this! Love to my family!
My dude just gets me. Lately, I’ve just been needing some extra encouragement and he’s come through in big ways and I haven’t totally been expecting him to pick me up like he has but he’s doing it. Dooney, you’re a rockstar and I love you @ryan.dunne

"Like a True Nature's Child- You were born to be Wild"
YES cue- Steppenwolf.
He was on to something- no wonder it was a hit song that everyone can relate to- I know I sing it out loud when it's on!
When you get IN to the word WILD and what it's defined as it's pretty interesting here are a few that landed with me: -Living in a State of Nature, not tamed or Domesticated
-Show lack of Control or Restraint
Here are some words that I LOVE to describe WILD.
I don't know about about but- these words FEEL pretty much like how we were meant to LIVE.
This is a big part of the talk I am sharing on Sunday.
LIVE YOUR WILD.
Some of these words have been programmed into us a scary, unworthy of respect, less than.. BUT what is the real true?
We have been brought up to be less than PRIMITIVE.
Taught to not listen to our OWN SELVES.
Taught to DO WHAT YOU ARE TOLD.
Taught to BE CONTROLED by systems, religions, governments.
We ARE BORN TO BE WILD.
In a way that is connected to nature and who we truly are as souls.
Like a True Natures Child.
Take the World in a Love Embrace.
I am so fired up to share this on Sunday!
Thank you Heather Cabral for creating an event for people to hear and FEEL ideas that can help set us FREE!
So happy to share that my latest write-up for @modernhiker
—Stinson Beach to East Peak Fire Lookout Loop—is up! (link in my bio :) So what’s great about this hike? Wow, there’s so much diversity of scenery along the way, coupled with a really cool railroad history on Mount Tam. Obviously, you’re starting at Stinson Beach, then in 1.5 miles you are inside a ferny redwood forest. After that it’s a climb on old fire roads that were transportation routes at the turn of the century: Stage coaches used Old Stage Road to take railroad passengers from West Point Inn down to Stinson Beach, then known as Willow Camp. Old Railroad Grade traces the path of the Mill Valley & Mount Tamalpais Scenic Railway that ran from 1896-1929. At the summit of East Peak, the turnaround point, there’s an active fire lookout and the best views of the San Francisco Bay I’ve seen from Marin County so far.
Nothing gets the party started like a desert panda in a tutu with a bottle of red. #goplayoutside
“You are being presented with a choice:
evolve or remain.
If you choose to remain unchanged, you will be presented with the same challenges, the same routine, the same storms, the same situations, until you learn from them, until you love yourself enough to say “no more”, until you choose change. If you choose to evolve, you will connect with the strength within you, you will explore what lies outside the comfort zone, you will awaken to love, you will become, you will be. You have everything you need. Choose to evolve. Choose love.” ❤️

Stoked for what adventures November will bring. Alabama Hills, Yosemite @meagerchase
, and Zion with @copykyle
will make for a pretty packed month but I’ve been going a little too stir crazy in LA.
As a side note, depression sucks but maturity and learning from my depressive episodes has allowed me perspective and healthier ways to cope. Climbing gyms are not cheap, y’all. I internally cringe when I think of shelling out such a sizable chunk of change but I understand the mental and physical benefits of this activity cannot be understated.
My chalk bag came in the mail today and my @blackdiamond
regulars are en route. I look at these upfront and recurring costs as investments in self care and mentally enriching experiences. I cannot wait to throw myself back on those holds.
