We have officially made it one full week of the Memory Lane series! The first week I showcased a lot of pictures of me so you can put a face to the name... This upcoming week I am going to be showcasing some awesome pictures of my friends! . . Who better to kick off the new week other than @coyhair ?! Coy has been with me for probably 85% of my Alberta Adventures. I honestly wouldn't be where I am today without him! Since he has come with me so often, half my hike albums are made up of photos with him in them! Be prepared to see Coy a lot! . .

I am LOVING reading all the comments you guys leave me on my photos! I'm trying to use social media for what it is... SOCIAL. Ask me anything and I will give you an honest answer! Send me DMsand I will always return them. Much love for all of you! . .

Another question people always ask... what is my favourite area in Alberta to hike? To be honest it depends on the season...Ive been hiking for 3 years. The first year I fell in love with Waterton, second year it was the Icefields Parkway... This past year it was the Canmore area... Honestly I love all of Alberta and this upcoming year I hope to explore more of Jasper, Crowsnest and FINALLY get out to Nordegg! . .

People always ask me what time of day is best to start a hike... answer: ANYTIME! Unless you are going to lake Louise and at that point you might as well be there for 7am ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . The best part about morning hikes is that you get to see the mountains come alive before your own eyes! Though this picture is not the best... the experience truly was! . .

You know what upsets me about the Alberta hiking community? (Not everyone but most) They think just because they do less touristy hikes they are a better hiker. I don't care if you are doing Johnston Canyon or climbing the Three Sisters, getting outside is for everyone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder not the commenter. Here is a classic tourist hike... Moose Mountain๐Ÿ˜ . .

In case you guys are tired of seeing pictures of me... here is a nice nature pic! . . Sometimes it's not about the end result but more about the adventure getting to the there! Be prepared for many more trail photos to come! . .

Are there any hikes you have planned to do for a long time but never seem to find the time? This hike was one of those for me. Planned it for two years and finally got it done last season! Totally worth the wait! . .

Guess the wildflower win a prize! Simple as that! First person to guess what this is wins something from my upcoming merch line! . . Hint - it's not a daffodil! . .

Have you ever done a hike before and felt like you were in another province? A lot of Waterton makes me feel like I'm on another planet... This Banff hike made me feel like I was in Hawaii! . .

Has anyone ever climbed a mountain and realized it wasn't worth the effort? Like the views weren't that great, the weather sucked and the actual climb was a grueling miserable experience? No? Just me? Well this hike is a local favourite for most people but it is one of my least favourites! Don't let my smile prove otherwise! . .

This is probably one of my favourite photos I've ever taken. When we were doing this hike someone told us not to bother with the last lake because it's muddy and gross... I don't know about you, but I personally think this is beautiful! . .

Fun known fact about me.... I have a huge fear of heights! This sitting pose photo may look good, but we only took it sitting because I was too scared to stand on the ledge! . . Thank you @artwhack for taking this awesome photo of me! Can't wait to adventure more with you this summer! (That is if I ever get to see you again!! ๐Ÿ˜‰) . .

There are certain hikes that I will always cherish. This one in particular is special because it was where the Clueless Guide began! This was my second hike ever in Alberta! I remember turning to @memitche when we got home and telling her I wanted to do this every weekend... and I did!ย  There was no knowing where this was going to take me but 138 adventures later... here I am ๐Ÿ˜ . . I try not to redo hikes but I knew I needed to do this one again for memory sakes and it felt so good to bring @coyhair and @pixie643 along for the ride. . . As cheesy As this sounds, I look at this one lone tree overlooking the valley and feel a connection. Against all odds, this little mountain nourished us into who we are today. . .

Are there any hikes you guys have done more than once? Not only was this hike one of the first hikes I ever did in Alberta but it was also my season opener this past summer. . . I remember trying to convince @xo_kscullz that this hike was short and simple... I might have left out the fact it's 16km round trip ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . Photo inspired @moonmountainman ๐ŸŒ… . .

I don't know if you guys remember my promo video for the app.. but that thing went internet viral! We have 4,000 plus views on Facebook with a reach of over 10,000!! Unbelievable! . . When it came time to choose a location I chose grotto canyon because it was something everyone recognized but @ericjamespauls told us we should go here... I wish i would have listened! When I finally got to explore this placeย  I was extremely taken back by how cool it was! . .

I love when people suggest hikes for me to do! It takes me to wonderful hidden spots like this one! I never would have thought exploring the Coleman area would be worthwhile... but I am so glad I was wrong! . . Do you have any hike suggestions for me? . .
