I’ve been thinking a lot about hope lately, and perseverance even when it seems like all around you there is darkness. Having faith that that one little spark will ignite, and everything around you will be bathed in warm light. This image was taken after 5 solid days of gray, rainy, bleak Norwegian weather. We had all pretty much given up on Mother Nature, when a sliver of sky parted ways with the horizon, and the world was more beautiful than I’ve ever seen it - definitely worth the uncomfortable , damp wait. Here’s to silver linings and calm after the storms 🌈 . . . . . . . . . #goatworthy #trailchat #ourplanetdaily #earthpix #vivalosfunhogs #WhyIHike #contest #nakedplanet #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoadventure #natgeoyourshot #ourplanetdaily #norway #senja #teamcanon #theoutbound #earthofficial #earthpix #beautifuldestinations #wildernessculture #wanderlust #instagood #optoutside #neverstopexploring #hike #mountains #sunset #midnightsun
This is one of my favorite memories. No summit push, no big mountain dreams, no agenda. Just long, slow moments in the sun with your favorite person. And at the end of the day, it’s these times that find a way to etch themselves into your heart and not let go♥️ . . . . . . . . . . . . #optoutside #wildernessculture #natgeotravel #natgeoadventure #natgeoyourshot #neverstopexploring #theoutbound #travel #chile #goatworthy #earthpix #earthofficial #explore #hike #torresdelpainenationalpark #torresdelpaine #patagonia #southamerica #bpmag #instagood #vivalosfunhogs #ourplanetdaily #beautifuldestinations #wanderlust @outsidemagazine @rei #teamcanon
Some places, some people, some ideas, have a way of finding themselves deep in your heart and not letting go. They live there always and drift in and out when the world quiets down, bringing far away smiles and familiar pangs of longing. They remind you how beautiful and brief it all is, in the best ways possible. Anyone know what I’m saying here? Would love to know some of your favorites 🤗 . . . . . . . . . . . #goatworthy #vivalosfunhogs #earthpix #ourplanetdaily #trailchat #patagonia #argentina #losglaciaresnationalpark #cerrotorre #teamcanon #mountains #hike #climb #nakedplanet #natgeo #wanderlust #wildernessculture #natgeoyourshot #natgeoadventure #sunrise #elchalten #southamerica #theoutbound #earthpix #earthofficial @outsidemagazine #optoutside #forceofnature #neverstopexploring
A few days ago I was climbing with a friend, and there were dozens of tourists rafting down the river, next to the route we were on. Every single boat that went by yelled something to the effect of, “go ladies!” “girl power!” etc. I think this is awesome (and believe me, I’ve never felt so cool leading a 5.9😉), but it did strike me that the fact that two women were out doing what is still a male-dominated sport, was something to comment on. So ladies; keep getting after it. Keep getting out there. Lift each other up, pass your skills on, inspire some one else who may need just that little nudge, and oh yeah - keep crushing 😉💪🏻 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #optoutside #forceofnature #natgeo #ourplanetdaily #vivalosfunhogs #goatworthy #trailchat #earthpix #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoadventure #natgeoyourshot #nakedplanet #sunrise #teamcanon #mountains #torreyspeak #kelsoridge #climb #hike @outsidemagazine #theoutbound #wildernessculture #wanderlust #boulder
This spot was almost too perfect to be real. Towering granite spires illuminated by filtered sunlight, glacial blue alpine lakes, and bright white clouds dancing through the sky. Hiking is such a simple thing, but the places our bodies can take us time and time again never cease to amaze me. Vistas like this, and that feeling of wonder that comes with it is absolutely #WhyIHike @eddiebauer 🏔 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wildernessculture #wanderlust #contest #optoutside #forceofnature #instagood #natgeo #nakedplanet #natgeoyourshot #natgeoadventure #natgeotravel #travel #hike #ourplanetdaily #earthpix #earthofficial #liveauthentic #canada #bugaboos #climb #mountains #theoutbound #teamcanon #goatworthy #bpmag #vivalosfunhogs #neverstopexploring #trailchat
On this past trip to Patagonia, the rain was pretty much constant. The system settled in, and pretty much held on with its soggy, gray grip for two weeks. Although the mountains barely showed themselves, on the rare occasion the peaks and fiery clouds came out to play, it made the wait totally worth it.

Today is the summer solstice up here in the Northern Hemisphere, which also means it’s the longest day of the year, and those luxurious warm days are just now officially kicking off. The high lakes have melted to glistening mirrors, the snow has mostly left the beaten down trails, and the flowers and greenery are coating every surface. I think I’m going to hold on to all this lovely for as long as possible. @adamrhealey taking in the expanse of Longs Peak from Chasm Lake in @rockynps 🏔 . . . . . . . . . #usinterior #colorado #boulder #travel #instagood #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeoadventure #makemomentshappen #boulder #estespark #rockymountainnationalpark #theoutbound #ourplanetdaily #earthpix #trailchat #bpmag #goatworthy #mountains #teamcanon #sunrise #nakedplanet #earthpix #earthofficial #neverstopexploring @outsidemagazine #liveauthentic #rockymountainnationalpark #chasmlake #longspeak #wildernessculture
It’s so rare that the winds are calm here, it feels as if the entire landscape is taking a deep breathe and taking a break from the gales that are a near constant here. To be honest, it doesn’t even feel like Patagonia without the wind, but I’ll take those rare moments of hearing your thoughts with such clarity ✌🏻 . . . . . . . . #patagonia #trailchat #bpmag #ourplanetdaily #goatworthy #instagood #chile #liveauthentic #torresdelpaine #ourplanetdaily #theoutbound #wanderlust #wilder #sunset #earthpix #earthofficial #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoadventure #natgeoyourshot #neverstopexploring #teamcanon #mountains #vivalosfunhogs #beautifuldestinations
Chossy slopes sure do seem a whole lot better when bathed in that alpen glow light. @adamrhealey making his way up Mt.

Lately, that fine balance of pushing yourself to new levels and making smart choices in the places we love to play has been on my mind a lot. There’s always going to be some level of anxiety or fear of the unknown or the challenging, but our bodies are capable of so much; it’s almost always our mind we have to wrangle with. Today I had that feeling. Every voice in my head was screaming at me, telling me to bail, persuading me to come down. I was shaking, asking myself why I was 50 feet up in the air, halfway up a route that was “too hard”. After the internal battle, I pushed all that aside and went for it. That feeling of touching those chains was pure elation. It’s why we do all these crazy things that are so challenging in the process - it makes the accomplishment all that much sweeter. I don’t have the magic answer to overcoming those creeping doubts, but I can tell you that I have never once regretted doing something. It’s the not doings that haunt me. . . . . . . . . . #sunrise #goatworthy #trailchat #ourplanetdaily #bpmag #colorado #mountains #wildernessculture #wanderlust #hike #climb #theoutbound #travel #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeoadventure #neverstopexploring #earthpix #earthofficial #liveauthentic #teamcanon #forceofnature
Navigating our way over rocky terrain on the most beautiful of spring days. Sometimes perfect spring days in the high alpine with friends is all you really need 🙌🏻 . . . . . . . . . . #optoutside #wildernessculture #wanderlust #travel #rockymountainnationalpark #usdepartmentoftheinterior #usinterior #colorado #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoadventure #natgeoyourshot #neverstopexploring #teamcanon #nakedplanet #theoutbound #goatworthy #ourplanetdaily #bpmag #trailchat #chasmlake #instagood #hike #mountains #estespark #forceofnature
