The people who put in the effort to protect and preserve the Tennessee Valley deserve some recognition. Here's a big thank you from us. #TVUncharted Swipe 👉 to see the whole segment.

It’s hard to describe the sensation that encompasses and engulfs you, when you are in the Yosemite Valley, or Ah-wah-nee, as it was originally named. It’s at once strikingly remarkable yet familiar, delicately beautiful but also overpoweringly dynamic, immaculately pristine and yet filled with imperfect contradictions.
It had been pouring incessantly on the night that we reached the Valley, sometime mid-November this year. The next day, as we started driving up the Sierras, the rain dwindled down and the sun came beaming through the overcast sky. The fog cleared, unveiling the mountains peppered with orange-red of the Pacific dogwoods, with splashes of yellow from the Aspens, Maples and Cottonwoods that flanked the banks of the gushing Merced river.
This moment reminded me of the quote from Ansel Adams, “Sometimes I arrive just when God's ready to have someone click the shutter.” I just clicked the shutter.

“As we passed on, it seemed those scenes of visionary enchantment would never have an end”- M. Lewis. Although it’s not know if Lewis himself visited Cannon Beach, his expedition partner William Clark, Sacagawea, and others toured the area in 1805. #westerncbd #wildwest #oregon #colorado #lewisandclark #nature #sacagawea #western #cbd #beauty #harshness #cannonbeach #fullspectrum #wholeplantextract #preserveourparks

Whoever says coming back from a long weekend is easy, must also say Mondays are better than Fridays.
We are looking forward to the weekend and #SmallBusinessSaturday

“Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.” -A. Adams. In 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant which protected the area as a wilderness space. Then in 1906, President Roosevelt took Yosemite away from California's control and put it in the control of the federal government, further ensuring it would remain a national park for generations to come. Yosemite is visited by 3.5 million people every year from all over the world. #westerncbd #wildwest #yosemite #colorado #california #vw #vanlife #westfalia #nature #sequoias #western #cbd #beauty #harshness #fullspectrum #wholeplantextract #preserveourparks #yosemitenationalpark #smileyouronvacation

I wonder if my ancestors ever wore mukluks, I wonder if they ever had a hand in making them. These are the best boots I've ever owned, and I'm proud to support the Manitoba Métis who make them!

Frozen Moisture is finally starting to return and accumulate on the Western Slope! Has snow fallen in your “back-yard” yet? This is good news for everyone in Colorado! From farmers, to fish, we are all hoping the winter is wet! This area where “Lucy” is running, is actually part of the Blue Mesa Reservoir bed! This area usually has 12-25 feet of water! Yikes! #PrayforSnow -
Also, fun general fact; “Gorsuch” has relatively strong connotations and bonds with animals in general, specifically: 🐕🐈🐄🐎🐑🦌🦓🦏🦍🦒.... #you 🤠#sourceyoursolution #dronedog #dogdrone #dog #drones #dronestagram #dronesdaily #animals #wholetthedogsout #RunningMotivation #Snow #Snowsports #VisualTraining #water #bluemesa #bluemesareservoir #protectourwinters #protectourplanet #preserveourplanet #preserveourparks #lakefork #elkcreek #taylor #gunnisonnationalforest #gunnisonnationalpark

Yepper ... the 2019 donation was sent this week. There are numerous #park related organizations and fundraisers. However, I have found that the #nationalparkfoundation complements my expectations. #goparks #nationalparkservice #parkranger #aparkrangerpost #preserveourparks #loveparks #npsgeek #givetoreceive #preserveandprotect

As I near a “that-which-shall-not-be-named” birthday milestone later this month, I am reflecting on my life - what I am grateful for, what I have accomplished, where I have overcome challenges, where I still struggle, goals for the future ... and MY TRAVEL BUCKET LIST! .
.
I just finished my Where to Eat (aka Sights, Bites and Brews you don’t want to miss) article on my blog, with highlights from my trip this fall to one of my longtime bucket list places: The Redwood Forest (link in my profile). Time with those ancient, incredibly tall redwood trees of Northern California touched a place deep inside me and shifted me in positive ways that I hope never shift back. .
.
I was so focused on seeing and being with the trees when I booked my trip that I didn’t even think about the ocean. Holy moly! The rugged Pacific Coast took my breath away! And you can spend time at the ocean and then time in the trees (or vice versa) within a half hour or less. It was heaven on earth. .
.
I also got to spend time hiking and laughing with a longtime client and now friend @karlakmorton Of course, we also scoped out lots of great food and local craft beer. .
.
The timing of my trip was no coincidence, I think. I planned it on a whim (which worked way better than overthinking and talking myself out of it!). And within a day of arriving home, I had a family crisis rise up. A crisis that required all the emotional strength, reserves of strength, calmness and faith I could muster. Without my time with the Redwoods and the ocean, I don’t think I could have handled it the way I did. .
.
So as you look at what you may want for yourself for the holidays, for the next year, for your next bucket list adventure: don’t talk yourself out of it. Go! Go to the places, the trees and/or the mountains that are calling you. Even if it’s just a weekend getaway in a nearby town because you have little ones and a tight budget (that was my reality for many years as a single mom). .
.
So ... what place is calling you next? For me, it’s Alaska or bust in 2019! 😁 .
