Nature tends to reward you for connecting!
🙌
Today was a success. I went with a buddy to the river just to get out of the city for a few hours, and we were pleasantly surprised by some friendly chickadees, woodpeckers and nut-hatches.

Shine bright! Even when the sun sets before 5pm ☀️🙄
This time of year always takes some getting used to, it’s that strange time of year when Fall is over, but it’s not quite Winter, the temperatures are all over the place and the sun sets earlier everyday.
Happy Mountain Monday everyone!
With @ragnarpugventures .

Today was a good day! I desperately needed some time in the mountains to clear my head and ground myself. I think I am finally starting to see myself making Alberta my home. #soloadventures #banff #banffnationalpark #chasingsunrise #frozemyfingersoff #solophotoshoot #twojacklake #beforethecrowds #girlswhohike #hikealberta #womenwhohike

Luckily summits have cairns or today I surely would have blown away! A good #MountainMonday nonetheless 🏔

Next time, we're putting a note in our pocket - that way if we don't make it at least we'll get a bench along the trail. #grassilakes #canmore #monday #motivationmonday #explore #explorecanada #travelalberta #lindsayhasthebestideas #frozenwaterfall #iceclimbing #pretty #hike #hiking #hikealberta #canadasworld #canadianrockies #getoutside #adventure

I've spent a lot of time lately reading through my trip notes and editing photos from this summer and fall. And it's reminded me how lucky I am to have had so many memorable experiences in these beautiful places. I've been hiking and camping my whole life, and it's never felt like I'm only out there to chase after an image. The most fulfilling part of these trips is the time spent connecting with nature, watching light change on the mountains, searching for wildlife, breathing it all in. If you have an authentic love and respect for the outdoors, you'll gain so much more than your photos.

I trust the Universe to bring the right people and circumstances into my life at the right time
- Unknown

I believe that everything happens for a reason and today was a divine proof that even when you don’t know who or what you need, if you believe the Universe will provide

Lauren invited me to go on a hike, we both had the day off and with Peru only days away I thought it would be a great practice run. She then asked if a co-worker could join and I said “the more the merrier!”

Neil ended up bringing his girlfriend Lorraine... who just so happened to have gone to Peru a couple years ago... AND both of them are avid hikers and gear collectors. • •

As we hiked up the snowy path Lorraine filled me in on all the details and both asked do you have “X” and “Y” and did you pack “Z?” Of course, not being a gear collector or very well prepared it seems lol I didn’t have many of the things they suggested. These people met me TODAY and gave me a headlamp before the day was over and I’m meeting her tonight to borrow an extra travel sack and hiking gear. •

My anxiety about the trip decreased as my confidence I will be prepared went up. I made 2 friends and just by being open to hiking in the snow I’m borrowing items so I don’t have to be without or purchase. How lucky am I??? Who would have thought a hike would be so meaningful?? I kept thanking the Universe for these amazing people and such a fabulous day. I feel so #blessed 💕

One of the most attractive pieces of being in the mountains for me is that it’s social time mixed with solitude. One minute you’re hooting out a chant and flying through the snow with your crew and the next, you’re pausing and finding complete peace inside your own thoughts. It’s the bouncing between the extremes that is so humbling about mountain travel for me. I love floating between the mediums of puppy-like social enthusiasm and thoughtful reflection of the landscape around me. Perhaps as I get older I will crave more solitude, but for now I’m super grateful to have such a rambunctious team of hooligans to share my experiences with.
