This marks the last visit to @glaciernps for awhile. I remember the first time I got a glimpse of these mountains three years ago - I was awestruck and in shock about how at home I felt in a place that was so wild and rugged. These mountains mean adventure. These mountains mean memories. These mountains represent a place I’ll forever hold dear in my heart. •

Another month another milestone without dad. Thankful to have spent the evening with the only person, @trstamnes who understands how it feels to see these moments pass by while we continue to move through our grief. There are good days, bad days, and numb days. Grief is slow, and without a timeline. The days I feel most connected to Dad are the ones I spend in the mountains.

I've been waiting to turn the page to the next chapter in my life. There will be some changes happening in the following months. At first, it seemed a bit intimidating to have to start all over again. Change can sometimes do that to you. it can instill a fear of some sort that automatically causes you to doubt yourself & your decisions. You just have to embrace it. And yet somehow, there's also this beautiful feeling that comes with getting a fresh new start. I'm going to trust that only wonderful exciting things are waiting ahead for me. 🌿

Well, things got really hard and wet on this hike. 😜💦

Another bucket list hike checked off my list. ✔️ FYI a maximum of up to $5000 fine and a mandatory court order if you get caught without a permit.

I'm not a professional photographer. I haven't made a dime off my photography. I'm self-taught. My tripod was cheap and is on its last leg. I want to upgrade it, but I can't bring myself to fork over the cash. I don't have fancy lighting equipment. This foreground was lit with my cell phone's flashlight. I don't even have a full-frame camera.

No, I am definitely not a professional photographer. But I've got drive & ambition. I'm motivated enough to wake up in the middle of the night & walk out alone to an eerie location. I'm willing to carry my heavy camera equipment with me while backpacking just in case I see something worth shooting. No, I'm not a professional photographer, but I sure as hell am a passionate photographer. 👊🏽📸

The best view 👌🏻

The beauty of Telluride astounds me. Hiked from town to and beyond Bridal Veil Falls.

I woke up and was going to post a different pic and caption how awful Mondays are, and then I went for a 7 mile hike and took an ice bath dip in this beaut ☝️ and tonight I’ll go to hot springs nearby, so really I have nothing bad to say about today.

Spent the day editing, watching west world, and 13 reasons why... honestly, I might be the laziest human right now, but it was MUCH needed✨

Happiness starts with you.
Not with your relationship, but having that special someone can enhance it😘.
Not with your jobs, but loving your work environment is important for mental health.
Not with your money... but a little helps with travel😬. Just with you... and maybe mountains 🏔️😉. .

I’ve been to 13 beautiful countries and still have seen only a fraction of the world. 🌎 Is it time to sail away again? 🚢 Europe is calling me! 🤔💶

I’ve never seen so many lakes from one peak... (at least 8 more just out of the frame...) 💙

Meet Samoa, or Mo for short. Justin and I have a VERY blessed life and can afford our ridiculous hobbies, which include beagles and running them in trials all over the state. Mo man is our latest addition to the pack, bringing us to 5 rough and tumble beagles......I mean cuddle machines. 🐶

Yet, I feel that this platform is a place for me to say something and DO something bigger. For four years, I called Houghton, Michigan HOME and it is still one of my favorite places on earth. If you haven’t seen on the national news yet, the keweenaw peninsula was hit with devastating flooding the last two days and area have completely washed out. Roads are gone, people have lost their entire homes, and the place I call my second home is in desperate need of help. .
.
This week, I have decided to donate my Health Coaching paycheck to the Keweenaw Peninsula relief fund to help them rebuild. As I said, Justin and I are very blessed and I want to help others with this business that has changed our life. So if you’ve ever been on the fence about joining a virtual Bootcamp....now is a great time to not only work on YOU but make an impact in others lives as well. .

So many discoveries yesterday! Like this chainsaw-carved owl, right at the beginning of a new trail section. The bridge had washed out of the previous section and the slope was very unstable. Not sure if this bridge and stairs setup is the ultimate solution, but it was great to be able to complete a trail we'd turned around on a few months ago. The wildflowers are still out, and I often wonder just how many shades of green there might be.

Got some serious adulting stuff done today, and by that I mean I went into Kohl’s looking for wedges and walked out with new bath towels and a bath mat. 😆 Justin and I had both been using old college towels, so the ugliest mix of blue and pink that you have ever seen. New house, new towels right? .
.
Now that I’m home, I’m diving right into my coaching business. My girls are on FIRE this month, and I can’t wait to pour more of my soul into helping them. It feels great finding success for myself, but it feels even better to lead women just like me to find their own success. We have already blown last month out of the water in only TWO WEEKS, and I can’t wait to watch these babes take off. Proud would be an understatement. 🦄🔥💞

Humidity coupled with an overhanging double arete made finding a rest crucial before I continued the push to the anchors. @a_souza_photo capturing me getting down to business on Best Route in Minnesota (5.11a)

Return to San G: after a less than positive experience climbing allllll the way to the top last summer, I decided to revisit the Vivian Creek trail this weekend. The last time I walked these steps, I had mascara running down my face from an afternoon of ugly crying my way down the mountain. This time, instead of doing the extremely grueling 17.3 mile hike to the summit, we just did the first 20% of the trail and headed back down to the car. If you’ve hiked Vivian Creek trail before, then you know that this first part of the hike is a strenuous jaunt through the forest with gorgeous views of the surrounding area. Even completing just this small portion is an accomplishment.
-
On the way down, I chatted briefly with another hiker heading up the trail. She (politely) told me we had missed out and should have gone farther; we didn’t hike far enough to see the beautiful part of the trail. What’s the part of driving all the way out here, she said, if you’re just going to hike the first “ugly” little bit and turn around? This hiker didn’t mean anything negative by her comments, but I couldn’t help but take a little bit of offense. I felt judged by this total stranger who knew absolutely nothing about me or the reasons why I chose to do the trail the way that I did. I was a little angry because I felt like her comments took something away from the hike I had just done by insinuating it wasn’t “enough.”
-
Just because you aren’t doing the same hike others are doing—whether you physically can’t, don’t have the time or resources, or just aren’t in the mood to—doesn’t make the path you choose any less worthy. There’s such an emphasis on “bagging peaks” and yes, this can be incredibly rewarding. But, it’s not the only way to hike. I’ve hiked all the way to the tippy top of San Gorgonio and it was probably the worst experience I ever had on a trail. Yesterday, I chose to hike "only" a couple miles up and it was one of the best, most beautiful hikes I’ve done all year, and no one is going to take that away from me. 🌲

"Having a wanderful life has changed so much for me in the past ten years. Until I really tuned into what makes me happy, I was living in unhappiness without realizing it. Being people pleaser, I always put others before ME. I set a goal last year to dive deep in the wilds and go backpacking. Escaping the everyday hustle by submersing myself among the trees has helped me fall more in love with who I am. I encourage all women to do the same, it’s one of the most freeing things I have found." -@her.oregon.life // #HerWanderfulLife

✨"Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself." -Coca Chanel ✌️

Do you ever have those moments of pure bliss? Those moments where time stands still, the wind blows through your hair just right, the temperature feels perfect on your skin, you feel so calm, and this moment in your life JUST FEELS PERFECT?
✨
This is how I felt when we reached the summit of our hike on Saturday. I Don't think I've ever felt freer than in this moment. 💫
✨
What you don't know is before our hike I was anxious and almost didn't go but rather than fighting it, I embraced it and let LOVE in, that this was my first time ever wearing shorts on a hike because in years past I have always hated how my legs looked, and that right before taking this photo I left some of my Dad's ashes in a spot just out of frame.
✨
Life's too short. Let go of anything that steals away your joy. Embrace all of you. All of your emotions, all of your body, all of your SELF. That is when we truly find freedom. ✌️

When we went on this tour, there was a couple with us doing a shoot for their wedding photos. I got these shots from behind the photographer as I watched this beautiful shoot unfold. This couple was so sweet and didn't mind having to pause their shoot, at times, when we needed to get through the canyon. If there are people visiting the slot canyons in Page, I'd highly recommend using the tour company tagged in my location. We had a very small group and 2 hours to ourselves to explore. *fyi: this tour was weeks ago. I wanted to give them time to get their photos before posting this*

“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.”
