So turns out all you need for an accessible campsite is an ADA consultant measuring stick, some decomposed quartzite, a patient & positive @utahconservationcorps crew, and some actual people who use wheelchairs regularly to test things. ⁣

I had a blast consulting on the construction of an accessible campsite at @commonground_adventures Beaver Mountain Lodge! Thank you to the @reevefoundation for sponsoring this project.⁣

As an ambulatory wheelchair user, I don’t need as many accommodations as someone with a complete spinal cord injury may require. But as I worked and consulted with others who have a higher level of paralysis than me, I began to realize the truthfulness of this quote by Steve Krug: ⁣

“The one argument for accessibility that doesn’t get made nearly often enough is how extraordinarily better it makes some people’s lives. How many opportunities do we have to dramatically improve people’s lives just by doing our job a little better?” ⁣

Please don’t forget that you always have the potential to make someone’s day a little brighter and a little easier ❤️

I knew the moment I got this sticker in the mail that it was going on my snowboard. Thanks to @prosthetic_innovations and @collegeparkind components I was able to get back to the sport I love. Just counting down the days til I can turn this @libtechnologies board loose again! #adaptivenation #adaptiveshredding #bionicboarder #libtech #collegepark

2 years ago today I was admitted to the hospital which would mark the start of my cancer journey.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How my life has changed in these past 2 years is amazing, the people I've met and the experiences I've had has been unreal. A cancer diagnosis isn't then end of your life, in some cases it's just the tart of a new beginning #cancersurvivor #hodgkinslymphoma #2years #lymphoma #chemotherapy #cancer #cancerfighter #amputee #adaptive #inclusive #wheelchair #inclusivity #badass #fashion #inclusionmatters #inclusivefashion #inclusionrevolution #fashioninclusionnow #adaptivefitness #adaptiveclothing #adaptivenation #ablednotdisabled #ablednotlabeled #inclusivemovement #inclusionforall #inclusivestyle #inclusivemodels

My legs are an extension of me carbon fiber, rusted bolts & all. In fact other than my initial reaction to losing my lower legs at the age of 19, I never felt that I lost or lacked anything, I only felt that I had gained. I gained perspective in my life & a deep purpose to figure out the possibilities and share them with the world. 🙌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Even with the new journey I’m on I wholeheartedly believe that life doesn’t happen “to” us, it happens “for” us. Each experience gives us the ability to grow as humans & the spiritual beings that we are. Do you agree? Comment below! ✨ also.. this photo was taken this day last year! Happy Wisdom Wednesday everyone! Share your little token of wisdom below I read them all! ❤️ #wisdomwednesday #bionic #amputee #adaptive #inclusive #inclusivity #badass #fashion #inclusionmatters #empowerment #movement #wheelchairgirl #wheelchairfashion #inclusivefashion #abilitynotdisability #inclusionrevolution #fashioninclusionnow #amputeelifestyle #adaptivefitness #amputeemodel #amputeefashion #adaptiveclothing #adaptivenation #ablednotdisabled #ablednotlabeled #inclusivemovement #inclusionforall #inclusivestyle #inclusivemodels

This week as I explored @zionnps , @brycecanyonnps_gov & Kodachrome Utah State Park, I was thinking about what the term “accessible” really means— particularly in an outdoor recreation context. ⁣

There’s really only so much that can be done to make a trail accessible without altering the purpose and nature of the experience. ⁣

Some hikes, trails, and routes will just never be fully wheelchair-accessible. And to me, that’s okay. I wouldn’t want Park trail builders to destroy part of a beautifully preserved 1,000+ years old natural wonder just to put in an elevator so I could prove my “independence” and see what’s left of it for myself.⁣

Personally, I’m happy with the one or two partially-paved trails and the drive-up lookout points. And if someday I hear of an irresistible vista that would be impossible to reach on my own, I’ll ask for help to get there. There are few things in life that are actually one-person tasks anyway.
