I didn’t know watching the sunrise from an ancient desert fortress was on my bucket list until I checked it off.
.
As we climbed the winding path to the top we had no idea of the dark history inside. The fortress known as Masada was the last stand of nearly 1,000 Jews who decided to commit suicide as free people rather than be enslaved by the Romans.
.
Before the mass suicide took place it was King Herod who build a fortress on Masada along with two palaces, baths, water reservoirs, and storehouses. He stored wheat, barley, olive oil and wine to serve his kingdom and in the event of a war. His foresight was right but not in the time of his ruling.
.
It was decades later that the Jews fled to Masada, took advantage of what Herod had prepared, and succeeded living there for 3 years. The Romans had already destroyed Jerusalem and the Great Temple, and Masada was next.
.
The Jews knew they were outnumbered 10,000 to 1,000 and suicide was the only logical choice. Refusing to surrender as slaves, they set fire to their homes and stores, and 10 men were given the task to behead 960 men women and children before killing themselves. It was a fateful and honorable choice made by the Jews. The event took place on the first day of Passover, the holiday celebrating Jewish freedom from slavery. .
When the Romans made it up the mount they were silenced by corpses and the ashes of the Jews wealth. Only one family in hiding remained to tell the tale.
.
It was a profound experience watching the sunrise over the Dead Sea knowing what events had occurred so many years ago.

I found the most annoying story at the library this week. It's called Smon Smon. It's a rhyming book that some how my kids love. The bad part is when they don't stop repeating the words all weekend. Oh well, they love books and reading, so I will continue reading and push through.
I will say their laughter is contagious and I will always cherish these moments.

Have a fabulous Fall!

Share that peace you find outdoors, inside. @Arcteryx @sterlingrope @scarpana @camp_usa @treadwall @julboeyewearna robpizem.com #plantrainanddoit #successisnotluck #celebratewild #freedomtofocus #sterlingathlete @rob_pizem

Took a stroll along the beach but only had my phone with me. This spot is crying out for a long exposure shot so I will be back with my camera.

I was lucky enough to find some campers with a fire burning during this chilly night in Ucluelet. They allowed me to huddle by the fire with my binoculars while trying to spot black bears turning over rocks for crabs on the other side of the bay. ******
It's times like these where I feel completely free from my anxiety and can truly live in the moment. *****
What activities help you live in the moment?

This is basically an example of my thought process while I run: regardless of whether I do actually have the Ciara, Boone and Crockett train rumbling down the trails behind me, I try to imagine a late-October pile of raked leaves always about 15 feet in front of me that never grows closer.. but if and when I make that dive into the leaves, I'll be consumed with all the puppy kisses..

Southern Sweden is really beautiful, but when I came back here this time around I really missed the sheer grandeur that is so prevalent in much of North America. This trip through Norway has really showed me that such grandeur exists closer than I previously thought.

Your journey is yours alone. There's no need to look right or left to see who's cheering you on or who's celebrating you. Quit worrying about who's NOT on your side. Keep your focus on the road ahead 👣 you'll get there just as the Almighty has planned it for you - Mufti Menk -

On my way home from Ladek Mountain Festival (@festiwalgorski )after a great weekend!
I was honoured to present a talk entitled “Dreaming Big” - talking about how rock climbing and the process of reaching for big goals can teach us so much (even if we never get there!) 😊

I also had the chance to discuss the activity and representation of women in the mountains with a panel of inspiring athletes as well as teaching some yoga for climbers!
Thank you to the organisers for such a fun and inspiring event and to the community for being so welcoming. 😊

Spring touring on the Main Range. Big terrain and awesome skiing over the past few days.

I’m finally back in the land of routine, rested after a crazy month of #travel and #adventure

This week, between catching up with #admin and heading back to my favourite #mountain regions, I will sort through my photos and start posting on here again...

Here’s the start of the #crazyjourney - a dusty drive from #leh to the start of our hike to the #summit of #stokkangri in #ladakh #india 😊

What a lovely weekend! Feeling absolutely blessed with living in Squamish, in a lovely home, with a loving husband, and surrounded by wonderful friends who all share a love of #climbing
Something I adore in all of them is the lack of ego - it just a social fun thing that we all have a project or challenge we are working through and it doesn’t matter what grade that is. Isn’t that what it’s all about?! Hats off to @wilderness.jp for his first climbs outside! That he crushed, not that I am biased. Ok maybe I am biased. But he really did crush them.
And @angieferet & @the_him_guy came up today to dive into the newly discovered world of climbing ❤️
