Some days you get to climb hard... other days you get to encourage others and watch true mentoring in action. I often genuinely prefer the latter. It is so rare to get to experience the kind of mentoring @mgclimber1 shares with the youth in our community.. nice work @liam__foster pushing hard on Valhalla (established by @mgclimber1 )... I was perfectly content in my small piece of sunshine. @adidasterrex @sterlingrope @camp_usa #freedomtofocus #adiout #adidasterrex #sterlingrope #chicksclimbingandskiing #livewithoutlimits #womenofcolorado #womenclimbing #climblikeagirl #climbingadventures #womenofclimbing #climbing_photos_of_instagram #climbing_is_my_passion #radgirlslife #climbonsister #mentortheyouth #painistemporarytryharder
Looking forward to the weekend and whatever adventure it may hold #weekendadventures 📸@christianwinward

A kind word, sincerity, fresh air, clean water, a garden, kisses, a book to read, sheltering arms, a cozy bed, and to love and be loved in return.” #hikinggirl #starraneelyblade #fortcollins #colorado #horsetoothfalls #horsetooth #womenofcolorado #chronicillnesswarrior #mtnchicks #wildernessnation #comehikewithme
Tomorrow is 420 and we cannot wait! 🌬💚 Fun fact; 420 used to be a code word for smoking and oh how far we have come! 🙌🏽 We are grateful to be able to celebrate this holiday in the beautiful green state of Colorado! 🌿🙏🏼 #womenofcolorado #womensadventure #coloradoradchicks #woohoo #420friendly #greengoddess #gangjagoddess #goddessgang #getoutside #letsgoexploring #theresaworldtosee #gogreen #smokeweedeveryday #420ready #letsdothis #legalization #youdoyouboo #functionalstoners #livinthehighlife #milehighgirls #milehighcity #coyotesongtrail #girlslovetravel

I want to know what makes you tick. What would you be doing with your time and money if neither mattered? . If the cameras weren’t around for your photos and highlight reels, would you still know your due north and could you still find your way to your true self? What would your life look like if no one was really watching you? The same? Different? 🤔 . Over the weekend I had a lot of conversations about life on and off the river, in the pursuit of trout and community, social media and adventures for a thirsty soul while still living a balanced life. . Here’s what I know: cameras or not, my due north is on a trout stream or with a fly rod in hand. It’s moving and using my body in the gym to develop the inner and outer strength and resiliency necessary to navigate the rapids of life and the river. This has been my due north for years and all that’s changed is I’ve made friends that take great photos to document all the adventures. 🤷‍♀️ #SameMe #JustEvolved #LevelUpYourLife #FindYourStrong #FindYourFishyTribe or fish solo - just do you, boo. . . 📸 @shyanneorvis
So thankful my body felt strong enough for today’s mtb adventure! My soul is smiling to infinity and beyond 🙏🦖🦕🌞 . . #mtb #kokapelli #colorado #womenofcolorado #landbeforetime #protectourpubliclands #flatearthsociety

Taking a hike is a great way to relieve the stress of the past and to get in touch with the present moment! We have two upcoming hikes on the Front Range: • April 29th, 10AM-12PM, Manitou Incline with ambassador @mkinthepines • May 9th, 6:45PM- 9:15PM, Mount Sanitas Sunset Hike with ambassadors @hilaryhikes & @lindsey.oung RSVP to join in at: www.womenofcolorado.co/meetandgreet ❤️💛💙 Thanks to @kimberlycrist for this awesome photo of @hilaryhikes and @fueled_by_candy from our Golden Meet & Greet hike at Mt. Galbraith! ❤️💛💙

Now that it’s appearing to be more like spring, is it appropriate to #tbt to winter? 😝 and considering I have already had people call me out on these tight pants-I forgot my snow pants that day, no biggie 🤦🏼‍♀️ _______________________________________________________ . . . . . #earnyourturns #choosemountains #splitboarding #liveferal #liveyouradventure #backcountry #coloRADo #rimby #amongthewild #livelimitless #neverstopexploring #findmeoutside #chicksthatride #likeamountaingirl #sheadventures #andshesdopetoo #womenofcolorado #herwanderfullife #sheexplores #womenwhoexplore #mtnchicks #alpinewomencollective #girlsthathike #alpinebabes #outdoorwomen
#tbt to when I climbed that Damn mountain! Any of you fortunate enough to have a friend push/challenge/convince you to wake up at ungodly hours and do things like..climb to the tippy top of mountains? I do! Thank God! Otherwise I'd be missing out on some very cool adventures!

It’s been a helluva week. Mentally, I’m like that giant crack running through the windshield—just a little more weight and I’ll likely cave in. When I think about all the shitty things going on, I want to cry. So instead, I laugh. I’m watching my favorite episodes of The Office and playing with my goofy dogs. I’m looking at pictures that remind me of hilarious mishaps and telling cheesy dad jokes. I’m making light of a shitty situation to get away from saying “why does this shit happen to me?” Because that statement is trite. It’s cheap and egotistical and meaningless. Bad shit happens to everyone. I’m lucky in so many ways. There are people out there dealing with things that could actually break them—and by all human meters and measures should. But I’m constantly shocked by how strong the human will is. And a bad week is just another reminder that you have no idea what people are dealing with on the other side of a smile, of a screen, of a laugh or a bad joke. So this week, I’m being extra kind. Because if I need it, there’s a chance you do too.
You don’t need sunglasses to see that letting go is the only way to truly be free.
@rivermammaelm is a great supporter of the @womenofcolorado vision— to make affordable, accessible events across Colorado that empower women to learn new skills, and try new things with women who have applicable knowledge leading the way! She is leading @womenofcolorado on an adventure including rafting skill-building and a trip along the Arkansas on August 12th from 12-4pm in Buena Vista. Our guides are certified river guides whom are also— all women! This is a unique opportunity to surround yourself with other women who are interested in the high adventure rafting has to offer. Many thanks to @canyonriverinstruction for providing women-specific programs for us to enjoy! • • • Sign Up at: www.womenofcolorado.co/adventures • • • ❤️💛💙 Repost @rivermammaelm ・・・ #TBT to Spring of 2010...

“You keep me safe, I’ll keep you wild” Happy belated birthday to my favorite adventure buddy.

In healthcare, we preach balance in our patients’ lives, and the trend is to not have balance in our own lives. I think that needs to change! Of course as patients, we all want dedicated physicians. We want them to be committed to obtaining an excellent knowledge base as well as being committed to their continuing education as medicine is ever advancing. This does not preclude physicians from focusing on themselves and their personal lives too. My motto is that I must take care of myself to take care of others. Mental and physical health are very connected. Even western trained doctors finally believe that 😉... ______________________ This post is the beginning of my reply to over 20 pre-med students who have messaged me asking how/if it is possible to keep their identity while in medical school. The questions I get generally speak to my constant stream of adventure photos combined with being a full time medical student. How can I be doing well in school and have time for all of the adventures? ... which I happen to find crucial to my success! Post with the answers to follow! Apparently there’s a word limit 🙃 Pre-meds, keep the messages coming! I love talking with you all, and I think we need more physicians like you! And ps, this photo 📷 @curtisslacksoff is from Thanksgiving break. I’m currently wearing scrubs in the hospital!

Life, it seems has become all about moments of breathing Where we are either waiting for a moment that will take our breath away, or having to stop for a moment to simply catch it @annawhitepoetry
@coppermtn closed so we went to @arapahoe_basin . Thanks for taking us @adelezeh 💕#sheshredscocrew #womenofcolorado

"At the top of this old mountain, With the red rocks and columbine, I guess I'm gonna be here, Until the end of time." - Balsam Range If anyone needs me today, I'll be listening to bluegrass and mentally transporting myself to this glorious place (...while I pretend that I'm not actually working inside at a desk 🙈).
When the top is what you’re aiming to reach... you must be prepared & willing to do what it takes to climb the mountain! ❤️💛💙 How do you mentally, emotionally and spiritually prepare for the challenges ahead? @womenofcolorado recognizes the empowered experiences we all have, and seeks to join women together who aspire to be their best version! We appreciate this trek to the top photo contribution from @devyn.pt , and can’t wait to take on a 14er with the other Women of Colorado this June! ❤️💛💙Repost @devyn.pt ・・・ An accurate representation of what this semester constantly felt like (i.e. crawling in 45+mph winds and getting knocked down like 37 times 🙃). 📸:@joshbenderphoto
Strive for progress, make yourself proud and ENJOY SHORTS WEATHER. 39:31 on my 37/100 💯💁🏼‍♀️🙌🏼 #manitouincline #manitousprings #manitouspringsincline #colorado #makeprogressnotexcuses
Living in Houston for so long has made me miss this amount of snow. I used to live in Pennsylvania several years ago so I'm not unfamiliar with snow or the winter season. I don't enjoy the cold, but seeing snow feels so wonderful. #LoveNature _ This is probably my 5th time in Colorado. Have you been?
Got out for the first paddle of the season over the weekend! Definitely looking forward to some time on the water this summer. . . . . #paddleboarding #womenofcolorado #wocoambassador #coloradotography #coloradoactivities #outdoorwomen #whatSUP
Sometimes all you need is a little help from your friends to nail the crux move. Working moves to establish links is the best way to put a problem together. Although, Bambi feels a bit out of my league, I tried it anyway. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. Don’t limit yourself!! #motivationmonday .

Having a job that keeps you inside all day, definitely makes you appreciate every moment you get to spend outdoors. This hike from this past weekend was beautiful!

I sent my first lead route this weekend, despite almost refusing to try to find a clipping stance for the anchors while checking out the moves on TR while yelling “why?! I’m not going to lead this today!!” Needless to say, I’m glad the squad made me do it and for their support for the send. ☺️ #sportclimberkelly ——————— Unrelated, this pic is courtesy of @ifyougivedanacookie from Roy a few weeks ago because cupping bruises and tattoos. 🙃 ——————

Anyone one else struggle with a balance between exploring and relaxing? Looking through pictures of winter adventures as I dive into planning for summer adventures & realizing how little time I spend at my home base. I love this lifestyle right now, I wouldn’t change a thing. But as my unpacked bags sit in my room while I organize my backpacking supplies for this upcoming weekend, I think for a second, maybe a day off would be nice? Then again...a second later, I’m already looking forward to the next adventure...🤷🏼‍♀️😉 📸:@hakkalack
“In truth, there are no beginnings and endings. There is just a constantly changing force, in which life goes through diverse cycles of closure, rebirth, and transformation. Even the most sudden starts and endings are part of a series of events that have all led to the moment when change finally takes place.” -Elephant Journal One of the only constants in this life is change and it is GOOD! Without change, stagnation replaces growth. With this new moon we are taking charge of the direction and focus we have in order to live our best lives! ✨🌚🙌 | | | | | | Photo cred: @rayzedfocus #womenofcolorado #coloradoradchicks #gogalavanting #sanddunes #explorecolorado #traveltheworld #takebackyourlife #changeisgood #newmoon #newgrowth #womenwhohike #sunnydays #colorado #explorecolorado #levelup #adventureseekers #greenlove #carpediem #womenwhohike #optoutside #saturdayadventures #weekendadventures #gangjagoddess #greengoddess #420friends #photography #adventuretime
When you truly don’t concern yourself with highlight reels and appearances and you go about your day covered and protected: it looks like this. Seat back, straight up lounging on the bow of the boat. Had it been warmer I’d have been in a bikini. No judgement. No shame. No guilt. No concerns except for the things that really matter: happiness, friends like @shyanneorvis and @chr1st1anhill To compliment you on your hair, trout and all the rest. #JustDoYou #Honestly #FindYourStrong #FindYourFishyTribe #Mindsetskillset #LevelUp #EmpowerYourself #DoYou . . . .

Pioneer (n): a person who is among the first to explore a new territory. To all the brave, courageous, selfless souls contributing to the growing social justice movements across the nation and globe we are all pioneers. Involvement in the #metoo #blacklivesmatter #neveragain #humanrights #genderequality #dacca movements are crucial regardless of how small you think your actions are. So when emotions become integrated so tightly with the tasks at hand that you feel overwhelmed or when you can't see the purpose of fighting any longer and want to give up, don't. For it is into the unknown abyss we continue embarking and conquering unforeseen challenges because WE ARE PIONEERS. • • • • #livelifeoutside #withgrangersyoucan #outdoorreseach #optoutside #thinkoutside #coloradophotography #lovelivingincolorado #mountainlove #mountainhigh #unexpectedrefreshment #getoutstayout #coloradoinstagram #womenwhohike #goatworthy #inspiredbyadventure #wildernessculture #wildernessnation #adventuredriven #natgeo #outdoorist #bs_snow #gearjunkielife #pushingthelens #womenofcolorado

My favorite place to be, outside enjoying the scenery. It’s even better when you get to share it with @womenofcolorado :) Thanks for the photo: @kimberlycrist
If you ask me, the best weekends start with outdoor adventures 🏔 + coffee ☕️ and end with a book 📖 + a brew 🍺. But what to do when you've already spent all your energy running around outside and you don't want to put forth the effort to figure out what on earth to read? If you're looking for some ideas, I've got you covered in my latest blog post. Check it out for some outdoor-related reads (including @semi_rad 's latest book) and minimalist inspiration (thanks to @theminimalists ). As always, link in bio. Happy reading! 🤓 PC: @jake_hertenstein
