Tonight’s sunset was 🙌🏻 🌄. Spent most of the day cooking. So far have made Brazilian Salmon Stew, Rogan Josh (spicy lamb) stew, and roasted butternut squash/apple soup. Guess I’m in a fall stew/soup kinda mood! Anyone have some great recipes they are loving right now? 🍜
Dakota, Forrest, and I have officially been on the road for a month. We’ve been to 5 National Parks and driven through 4 states. We’ve slept down dirt roads, next to lakes, and in Walmart parking lots. We’ve learned to conserve water, to rearrange a fridge in ways that would put Tetris to shame, and to dump a toilet without making a hazmat situation. -
I’ve laughed. I’ve cried. I’ve felt lonely. I’ve been scared. And I’ve been the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.
So tonight as we snuggle up down a muddy dirt road in the middle of the desert, with sheets covered in orange paw prints 🐾, I’m feeling particularly thankful that this is the life I get to live. Cheers to many more miles and adventures! We’re only just getting started!

Words cannot even beginning to describe this day 😍😍 Watching the sunrise with 6 other friends from the top of a mountain 🌄 It was an almost perfect day... other than @krhollett 's bag (and our snacks) sliding to the bottom of the mountain 🙈🙈

Hi guys! I’ve put together a list of some of the most beautiful locations to photograph in Lake Tahoe....Check it out and feel free to share your thoughts! ..link in bio..
I’ve been back in therapy for 5 weeks now. After each session I leave completely drained but I also feel really good. I’m a fucking bad ass warrior goddess for addressing things that most people spend their whole lives shoving down.
I will tell you though, the mountains save me. Getting out there once a week to prove to myself I’m capable, physically and most of all mentally, is very empowering. We are just tiny beings in this great, big universe.
And thanks @wisekat9 for getting this shot that shows how steep this trail really is lol

Anyone else totally unable to reconcile how much they’re loving this PNW extended summer but also completely panicking about getting snow for ski season? 😬

Just the mountains
and the wind
and the leaves
and silence as my song.
For those of you that don’t know me too well, if I’m not illustrating, I’m probably out running. I love, love, love running, so much so that three years ago I started running everyday and never stopped. Probably never will either!
So today’s drawing is one of my running inspirations - @seen_running. She’s so positive, is always so encouraging to other runners and also has a knack for making running look fun.
What’s your favorite outdoor activity? Any other runners around here?

Photographing Jessica & Jason's elopement in Acadia was an absolute dream. From the start it felt like I was just hanging out with friends, and after a day in the park we had pizza and beer, the perfect ending top o an epic day 🍻🍕

Obsessed with mint leaves and lemon in my water! 🍋 I am so bad about drinking enough water once the temperature cools down outside, I just want to drinking coffee all day - especially when I have a lot of studying to do! But just because it’s not super hot outside doesn’t mean that we can forget about staying hydrated! Playing with horses, walking for what feels like miles across campus to class, and working out all require plenty of water even when it’s cool out!! Adding a little something to it really helps me to keep drinking! 💦💦💦

It's funny how quickly life changes. This summer was so free and wide open. I didn't have a job, I was traveling constantly, settling in to Charleston, waiting to hear back from jobs, preparing to climb mountains, ready for yoga training to start, and it was all around an amazing summer, which brought so much growth.
Fast forward to today. I have been working ~4 days a week, while doing yoga training all weekend long (almost) every weekend, doing social media for a non profit, and still maintaining my 5-6 workouts a week, cooking most everything at home, cleaning, and having my home yoga practice. This crazy busy time is also amazing and is giving me so much to work on and grow right now.
As the seasons always change so does life, but it's all good things and there is beauty in both phases. I'm just so grateful to wake up and enjoy another beautiful day because it was not guaranteed and never is.

the soul in you.
the love in you.

This is my first fall season without changing leaves, cooler temps, flannels, bonfires, and well.. anything that really comes with fall.
I am extremely thankful for this trip that allowed me to escape to some beautiful fall colors and weather. 🍁🍃

Growing up I've always been a very emotional person. As a child and teen it was emotions in a chaotic sense. I was known as someone who cried a lot, who was hurt easily, who took things too personally, too loud, too excited etc.
I am still an emotional being, but I've gained control, I've gained space. I began going to yoga occasionally my 2nd year of college and that grew into almost daily practice by my fifth year. I began taking time for myself in nature, I really connected with the wilderness. I began reading on my own for self improvement and having quiet time alone in the mornings to start my day right.
I'm still an emotional being, but I now have the tool of a pause. I pause before speaking. I pause when I feel the heat come to my face. I pause before rushing to assumptions. Of course I have moments where I fall and struggle, we all do.
I've had friends tell me that I'm an entirely different person than I was 4 or so years ago, and for this I am so proud.
I'm honestly not sure why I wanted to share this information. The desire came to me this morning, while I was driving in my car and felt overwhelmed with gratitude and joy. I had tears because I'm so thankful to breathe and to live and move. The sun was shining, reggae music playing in the background, and I was on the way to pick up my best friend for a coffee date. I was just in tears because I am in love with life. I'm in love with the person I've grown into and I'm so excited to see what else will change through this journey.

Climbing to the top of the mountain is one thing, but coming down was the toughest part for me.
One of my guides told me that going up is optional, coming down isn't.
So it's always just one more step.
I get to the bottom and I'm covered in bruises and blisters, my legs are pushed beyond exhaustion and my body doesn't feel normal. Everything aches, sharp pains overtake my knees with every step, sweat is caked onto my body and clothes, my hair seems to be tangled in a mess that may never come out. The soles of my feet are tender to the touch. It felt as though it was never ending.
And yet, I'm sitting here looking into my next adventure, my next climb, the new skills I need to learn and how much money I need to save for the next one.
There's a rush, an empowerment, a total fulfillment and excitement that is stronger than the pain and uncomfortability.
I look back on the moments when I felt so low on the climb down, and hope that in the future I can reflect on this and remember that the pain is going to pass, but the memories, lessons and people I connected with, won't.
@kenziecat6 // “After a long week of work, I find my escape in the mountians. I feel the pressure of petty things that have caused me anxiety all week lift right off my shoulders. I choose mountians because they help me let go of all the small things and remember that the world is a big place where everyday something new can happen.”

Taking time to make a quiet, unobtrusive ritual of tea is just one of the ways I try and dial-down the influence and intensity of a society and culture that constantly shouts 'Be Something! (And Make It Special)'
Sitting still for a while is my resistance and reply. It says I'm here showing up for the routine as well as the riot. It says I'm doing my best, by my own route, in my own time. That I won't let fear-driven ambition drive out the small contentments because my days are too few in number for that. It says I'm grateful to be special to some, and accepting i'll be average to most. We are gloriously joined in our normal-sized lives. It says I have my place alongside everyone else taking tea today and I savour that. It says there are things that will be and things that won't be; I can tolerate both.
To many, this will be an uninspiring way of thinking, to me it's exciting beyond measure.
Kissing 27, GOOOOOD-BYE 💋 It’s been one heck of a year! I ran CIM and Boston, I married my very best friend, we survived a year in the Bay Area (barely 😂 #stillhangingon ), we traveled a ton, I ran my very first 5k, we went on our first backpacking trip ✅ and so much more!! It was the most challenging year of my life, but contains some of the best events and memories of my life! Crazy how that happens! Today, I am grateful for my health and one more year of living! It’s so funny thinking back to when I was 20 and had this silly “timeline” in my head. I wanted to be married by 25 and I wanted my first baby at 27 🙄 So on and so forth. Why do we do this to ourselves?! Try and rush life? As far as I know, I’m still young but getting beautifully older and am perfectly content with how God’s plan for my life is panning out. None of us are promised a tomorrow, so we owe it to ourselves to live our best life today and continue to follow the fire in our hearts without such a strict agenda. Easier said than done for all of us (like me 😬) who like structure, schedules, guidelines, direction etc. The unknown gives me a minor heart attack. But, every year that goes by, I am learning to let go of that a little bit (Anthony might not agree 😂). Anyways... I am so excited for my 28th year and welcome whatever new events, challenges and changes it may bring 🤗 #happybirthdaytome#radrabbit#runinrabbit#gorun#outdoorwomen#nobadweather#runstrong#runhappy#mountaingirls#iloverunning
