Lucky to say I know I can bring a genuine smile to this friend's heart.⠀

Happy birthday to my favorite brown person of Encinitas, friend, business partner, spiritual guide, sister, mother, and whatever I need her to be, she is. A magical person and no less.⠀

Can't wait to celebrate all our ups and downs in person @euniquedeeann ✨⠀

Today we celebrate the lady boss who started it all, our lovely @euniquedeeann
Happy birthday to a woman that can not only bring a rad team together, but who makes sure we are constantly inspired and empowered through exploring our passions.

Thank you for all you are and do for us, and the world. For constantly reminding us the importance of making time to #getoutsidethegrind and #exploretocreate responsibly.

Here’s to many more years of adventuring while being #strandedonland 💫.

The gift which I am sending you is called a dog, and is in fact the most precious and valuable possession of mankind."
Theodorus Gaza

Presence.
That is the treasure I seek in these places.
When I am here, there is no future. There is no past.
There is simply now.
I don’t agonize over missed opportunities. I don’t question decisions I have made. I don’t stress over upcoming deadlines. I don’t yearn for something different.
I simply experience the moment. This moment. The one I am feeling with my mind, heart, body, and soul. Here and now.
Somehow, these places make it easy for me to do that.
They delight my eyes with wondrous and expansive beauty, my ears with subtle and timeless sounds, my nose with rich and crisp scents.
They test the limits of my mind and body. My lungs and muscles burn in a combination of pleasure and pain. I focus on that, both pleased and disappointed by what my body is capable of doing. Of the places it can take me.
How could there be room for anything but this moment?

“ To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.” - Oscar Wilde

Him. Always him.

Took the day off with no obligations, no pre-planned trips.... just a whole day for myself! I went on a solo 10 mile trail run (hence the shameless selfies), saw the golden aspen leaves (now craving a pumpkin beer #fall), and enjoyed an empty bouldering gym. It was a nice reminder that you don’t need a big trip to take PTO... whether your day consists of trail runs or netflix... it’s important to set time for yourself. 10/10 will do again.

Mostly, photos of me end up just being photos of my hair. I used to want to tame it but now I just let the beast run wild and free like it was always meant to be
. . .
Hair can be a very personal thing, especially if your hair has ever been scrutinized for not adhering to norms or expectations. When I was younger I felt a lot of pressure to tame the ‘ethnic’ nature of my hair. To spend hours blow drying and straightening out the curls and frizz and volume. Contemplating whether or not bleaching it could work with my skin tone. I bought product after product hoping to transform it into something it was not. I’d like to say I had a hair revolution - a moment where I decided to own and appreciate my hair for what it was. But it didn’t come in a moment like that. It came gradually. Eventually I just got tired of trying to make it, and myself, something it wasn’t.
. . .
These days, as I’ve gotten older and have actively made an effort to embrace who I am - I LOVE my hair. It is a part of who I am. I, myself, am also a beast that loves to run wild and free just like these natural locks

Absolutely loved meeting these amazing women and learning some new outdoor climbing techniques. Thank you so much #womenswilderness for a fantastic day!

Women's outdoor first aid and rescue class! Fun and intense. #straightaheadrescue #womenswilderness #firstaid #alaska #beinformed #cpr

Hiking can happen anywhere. You can do it on your own, and you can do it with others. No matter how you do it - its always about connecting.

Wishing...

Trailblazers’ last outdoor session before our final backpacking expedition. Meal plan, route plan, poop talk, and we’re all set 💪🏽 #womenswilderness #diversifyoutdoors #sheadventures

Flashback to when the #roadtooutpost began.
Today we are hitting that final stretch, only a few hours away from the beginning of our most expected weekends (yes plural) so far!
Looking forward to making new friends and spending time outside learning from industry pros these next few days 🚴🏻‍♀️🧗🏽‍♀️🧘🏽‍♀️ Who’ll be at @outpost this weekend?

Next weekend 🔜 Earth Philosophy Class with @earthskillsllc in Padres NF.

After 🔜 Volunteering for the Insects and Arthropods class at @jtnpa .
Then 🔜 SAN DIEGO!

I love photos. I say that over and over.
But they’re a very real, very tangible, hopefully very long-lasting thing that have this remarkable ability to immediately transport me back in time. Back to a beautiful moment.
They conjure memories. Smells and sights and sounds and feelings. Ones I would forget if not for this visual thing in front of me.
This one brings a smile to my face.
I remember the cool breeze and the fresh alpine air. I remember the glitter of the water.
I remember the pups running round and round. I remember yelling at them as they jabbed me with a stick that was way too big for them to be playing with.
I remember the sense of awe and satisfaction for having reached the base of this particular peak. A peak I had immediately chosen as my favorite when we first laid eyes on this range.
I remember how exhausted Shawn was, but how important it was for him to let me see this place. To see it with me.
I most certainly do not remember why it took such intense concentration to join hands...

Not currently feeling this way, but it sure felt good to be warmed from the outside in by the sun’s glorious rays in the Crazies this past weekend.
.
Does anyone else feel like they dissociate from other “selves”? Like. Happier or stronger or more anxious or sillier or sadder versions of you doesn’t feel like you at all *in this moment*?
...I swear I’m not crazy, just pondering 😅

TLC was wrong, you should always go chasing waterfalls

I am grateful for a break in the constant rains, and am celebrating with my first day of work in my outdoor office!

In the foreground is my laptop on a wooden desk.]

“I remember this being one of the most mellow 5.11 pitches in Eldo!” I said with a confident smile moments before cruxing out, the sun blinding me as I groped for holds only to overgrip my way into dry-firing off and falling on a pin that #EricDoub said has been there since 1981! @justensjong with the photo and the rope-gunning up the other sunny pitches. #notquitefalltemps #climbing #alwaysabeginner #overgrippedandslipped #climbingsensei #doyourhomework #funstoppable #doubgriffith #eldoradocanyon #sheadventures #womenswilderness
