When I was a kid, my favorite dreams were about being able to fly, or breathe underwater. I didn’t know that when I got older, I’d be able to do both.


Not one drop of daylight going to waste.

West Oahu is a little underrated, I’d say. The colors at sunset are just insane! What’s your favorite thing to do on the islands? I’m always torn between hiking and diving.


The feeling when you can take a bath and a shower at the same time 💦
I’m on the island for a bit – really excited to wet my gills!


WIN: My friends at @kammok and I both think our public lands are really cool, and we think it’s really important to protect these national treasures. Because you take better care of places you know, we want to give away a free National Park pass - a whole year of adventure! Let’s educate our friends and family about national parks in 2018. To win: 1) follow kammok, 2) follow me 3) tag a friend in the comments on the kammok post!

It’s been really inspiring to see people come together to protect our public lands. Whatever side of the political aisle you’re on, we need places that will always be wild.

Joshua Tree, California

And just like that, it’s December. What a wild year it’s been! What’s your favorite 2017 memory? I’d have to say high on my list was this quiet lodge on Emerald Lake

Emerald Lake

So much to be grateful for! I’m especially thankful for all the internet friends turned real life friends this year.
If you’re around Black Friday, I’d love for you to join us and #optoutside in Yosemite, rather than getting caught up in all the retail chaos. I’ll be hiding a goodie bag from @teva, @ENOhammocks, @hydroflask, @Parksproject, @proofeyewear, and @keltybuilt, and you can follow the @teva story for clues to find it.
Afterwards come hang out in El Capitan meadow at 2:00 - bring snacks and drinks to share. #hunt4adventure #yosemite

Yosemite National Park

Yesterday I backpacked home from a 10k’ alpine lake, and tomorrow ‘hiking’ an 18 mile trek in San Francisco, linking up the 7 summits of SF. If you feel like following along, join us over at the @teva story! And if you’re in the city, join us for a mile or two!

Hard to complain about a cancelled flight when people are losing their homes, businesses, and even lives. Much love to my friends in the Bay Area. 💛
If you’re stuck in the Denver airport too, come find me doing yoga in the corner!
