You know those wintry excursions where you can't find the trail and instead, have to scan the powder-covered trees for the tiny blue diamond indicating the correct direction? ❄️❄️We found some epic snow on the Grand Mesa with fluffy pillows so soft you'd want to curl up and sleep in them and forget it was actually snow! I love that. 💕 Here's to hoping I can find *more* of that this weekend when the heat wave potentially breaks! 😂/// I'm partnering up with @rei to showcase some of my favorite Colorado outdoor spots. What would you add to your list? #optoutside #sponsored /// 📷: @twomillstones

Colorado's urban beauty isn't too shabby either 😍

Life goal: find mountains that remind me of how inconsequential we really are. /// 📷: @twomillstones

It's been two months since we've returned from New Zealand, and I think I can say this with absolute certainty: hot damn, it's a beautiful country! /// 📷: @twomillstones

Tomorrow is March. Does that feel weird to anyone else?! 😂 While I'm *not* quite ready to forgo skiing for the year, I am excited to wander the hills in search of some new backpacking spots....like this gem near Zapata Lake in the Sangres! 🙌🏻 /// I'm partnering up with @rei to showcase some of my favorite Colorado haunts.

In Colorado, lupine is my all-time favorite wildflower. In New Zealand, it's merely an invasive weed that takes over various moist habitats. Goes to show you: beauty really is in the eye of the beholder!

Guys, I am DYING! One of my followers @cooperhill did this sketch of Tals based on my IG story yesterday! How talented is he? {and how adorable is Tals?!!} ❤️

I first visited the Benedict Huts {Fritz and Fabi} back in 2012. ❄️❄️This was pre-backcountry skiing days 🎿 so instead, we spent the days building snowmen and creating luges for our sleds. ⛄️ ⛄️And it was awesome! Colorado's network of backcountry huts is amazing and I feel so fortunate to get to experience these beautiful spots every single year! /// I'm partnering up with @rei for the next six months to showcase some of my favorite outdoor haunts in Colorado. Have you been to the Benedict Huts? #optoutside #sponsored

But SERIOUSLY. This is the type of backcountry terrain you find with an easy skin up the inbounds groomers of @snowkingresort?! Are you freaking kidding me?! Count me in, all day and errrryday! ❄️🎿/// 📷: @twomillstones

Almost five years in and everything is still better with this guy ❤️ /// 📷: @joolyhart

Running on the top of Loveland Pass {elevation: 11,991 feet} may look beautiful and scenic and oh-so-fun. But in reality, it's windy and snowy and oh-so-chilly! 😂❄️ Good thing I had my @orosapparel leggings, complete with insulation inspired by NASA's spacesuits. I guess it kinda looks otherworldly up there, right?! /// 📷: @twomillstones #OrosOutdoors #sponsored

Oy. This has been a week, hasn't it? In fact, I dumbly stared at this photo for like five minutes, willing myself to come up with a creative or witty or clever caption. But no, I've got nothing. Here's a pretty photo of a beautiful hike in New Zealand that I'd love to do again! 😉 /// 📷: @twomillstones ETA: Clearly I'm exhausted bc I JUST posted this photo a few days ago. Double whammy. Time for bed.
