Exploring more of Washington
This is the highest waterfall in skagit county, and only local people know about it. I had the pleasure of meeting @hindmave and he took me out here, adventured around, up and over the waterfall. .
I just love meeting local people while traveling! I think it’s the best way of discovering an area, a country, a city, a town. You name it. The experience is always 10 times better when you actually get to know people that live there. Over the last two weeks I’ve been staying in one place, and I cannot thank the people I met, enough. For their time hanging out with me. For their enthusiasm, sharing their stories, sharing their homes and places and vehicles and country with me! 🙇🏼♀️ #backpackbren#golive#exploremore
Spent the last two weeks driving up the west coast and across the northwest states. Made it to a hotel in Detroit Lakes, MN for the night before we’re off to stay with family in Illinois for a few days. Spending too much time taking photos to upload any, but this one is from way back on day 3 of 40, late at night at our campsite in Sequoia National Park, surrounded by giants. You know it’s a good sky when even I can pull off a halfway decent picture of the stars! 📷🌌🏕 #roadtrip#sequoianationalpark#stars#vanlife#camping
I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again..... The Winds are amazing. Our trip was relatively short but we made it count.

You see the lake down there? That is where I slept that night. And to make it even better that is also where I had my very first northern light experience – one of few things on my bucket list ✨ I will never forget it 💖

The Grand Canyon, arguably the most surreal natural beauty you'll ever see. Looking down through the canyon you can't appreciate how big and amazing actually it is. This is Livin' went Arizona!
It is good to keep an open door policy 😊

The day I graduated from college, I was given a card from my mentor.
The front of the card read: “Congratulations!”
And inside she wrote three words:
Don’t look back.
The message surprised me.
I didn’t understand why she chose to share those words with me at that moment.
And as the day's celebrations carried on with flowers and food and laughter,
Those words sat heavy on my soul,
Bouncing around in the back of my mind.
The truth is, they still do - even over a decade later.
You see, we spend a lot of time dwelling on the past - sometimes for good reasons, sometimes for bad.
We reminisce, ask questions, virtually retrace steps - sometimes it helps, sometimes it hurts.
Meanwhile the sun continues to arc across the sky, trees stretch their limbs a little higher, alpine rivers make their way to the sea, babies are born, and people say goodbye - sometimes forever.
Now, I don’t think that my mentor intended for me to not mull around memories of lessons learned,
I don’t think she meant for me to forget where I came from, and how I got here.
But I do think that this was a wise woman’s way of saying "YOLO".
And whenever I’m asked about the best advice I’ve been given
These are the 3 words I share.
