That’s something about the beauty of the mountains.

Rockin at Smith, then needing to chill off bit because of a teeny bit of heat stroke.

I'd focus on the push and pull of every stroke, entranced by the process of converting potential energy into kinetic motion. I spiritedly spun my way up numerous twisting hill climbs, and as I crested the top, the whirring click of my accelerating freewheel would remind me to tuck down to surf the velvet blacktop ahead.

Welcome to Jungle Sherman. I just got home from Bend and I’m already receding into my giant hoodies like a hecken poser. It’s good to be home. It’s good the be a poser, but man I miss the Oregon desert heat.
I’ve mentioned it to most of my friends, but this goes down in my top three all time moments, alongside the northern lights in Iceland, and the solar eclipse. We paddled out to the middle of the lake and just watched on as the sun slowly crept up. Before I paddled back to shore, I sat in solace for fifteen minutes - similar to what @jakewags8 is doing here. The most beautiful send off to an all time week.

“Maybe that’s it. With what you were talking about before. The world being broken. Maybe it isn’t that we’re supposed to find the pieces and put them back together. Maybe we’re the pieces. Maybe, what we’re supposed to do is come together. That’s how we stop the breaking.” - David Levithan
. . .
we found hops growing wild at the entrance to the most ancient grove of black cottonwoods in all the explored world.
. . .
i finally looked up the red berries growing everywhere in the forest. you know, the ones that look like a refined and delicate, richly hued raspberry? turns out they are thimble berries and they are a delight to eat. i’ve seen them almost my entire life and not tried them until this thirty-eighth year. weird.
. . .
i place milkweed seed pods on windowsills. strange alien pods. i keep going back to caress and gently squeeze them; relishing their surprising pliancy and their oddly shaped, fuzzy yet spiney, outer skin.
. . .
i curse the fcking earwigs. i hate them in fact. they are ugly and destructive and they bite. fck those guys.
. . .
i go to whisper,
and laugh my heart desires into the smoke of my sweet grass.
i intend to let it all float out to the falling stars of the perseids.
but then i remember the earth is offering her own smoke and let prayers, conscious and not, land thick and heavy into that instead.
. . .
i go to bed.
tired and content.
The longer we are in the mountains, the more adventures we experience and the more unreal places we discover and explore, the happier we are. At least that’s how I feel. Sometimes you reach your limits, have 16, 26 or more kilos on your back, torture yourself over the peaks and you think: „No, I don’t do one more step!“ But that passes and at the end of the day you know, it was worth it!
This place is now easy access for tourist, listed only for an easy hike. There were kids on the roof throwing dirt off. I asked them what they were doing. They said “were cleaning the roof!” With dirt covered faces.
The storm approaches... This was the last day of decent weather and by that I mean we weren’t completely soaked upon reaching the hut for the night. Also, there’s few people I’d trust to take me this deep into the wilderness except for this guy right here. A true sendy boi... 🤘🏼
My youngest sister @leah.ott: also known as Leah-loo, Baba, or little Lay.
This week was family time in the Yukon. We travelled to Alaska, flew into a gorgeous restaurant resort with a personal chef in a float plane, saw Grizzly Bears, soaked in hot springs, and spent quality family time.
Big thanks to my parents for being the best hosts ❤️

I don't know: Why aren't people fascinated by air traffic controllers?...
Finally made it to that insta-famous spot last weekend.
Quite impressive, although I might prefer to walk on that ridge in the fog the next time 🤤🙌🏻

Its been one week since I hopped on a flight to Seattle and began this adventure with @carriemeonmyway. The last time we saw one another was during a tearful hug goodbye after a month long trip to the bottom of the world. When I found out that she had never been to Canada I know that I had to be the one to show her why I could never imagine leaving this place. I spent days scouring google maps, travel blogs and books written by men who have long since passed. I compiled a list of what I could only imagine to be the most beautiful places - the only hiccup is that they would all be new for me. We are just over half way done this trip and it has been a lot of late night driving, wrong turns (both in the car and on the trail) and changing plans because of closed roads, busy parking lots and thick smoke in the air. We have hiked in the pouring rain, been eaten alive by black flies and feared that our tent would blow away with us inside. But we have also been to places like this, jewel-toned lakes precariously hanging hundreds of feet above the valley floor below unnamed on any map we could find. Eating Oreos with almond butter for lunch and dancing in fields of wildflowers laughing until our bellies ache and our eyes fill with tears. We set out on this road trip with the sole goal of making memories, and seven days in we have enough to last a thousand lifetimes.

There’s one thing that surprised me about Kvalvika Beach. You can meet bunch of these cuties there.. and they’re actually very friendly and not shy at all. This particular sheep was chilling right beside our tent. Could he get any cuter? 🐑 -
Na pláži Kvalvika mě překvapila jedna věc.. žije tam totiž poměrně velký stádo. Navíc jsou hrozně zvědavý a lidí se vůbec nebojí, takže vyfotit si podobný portrét nebylo vůbec těžký. Tenhle roztomilouš se rozvalil hned u našeho stanu jakoby nic a nechal se ode mě asi hodinu fotit. Horší to pak bylo ráno, když všechny campery probudilo hromadný bečení. 🐑 #roadwideopen#animalportrait#natgeowild#koktejlsoutez
You wander around trying to empower yourself over and over again and then, just like that, there is the world opening up your eyes with the width of the ocean while backing you up with the strength of the forest. And, in her grace, she makes it all look so easy. 🌞 w/ @liaberchtold
