We caught up with these lovely folks ( @rainbowsontheroad ) the other day. We love meeting fellow vanlifers on the road 😊 As you’ll see from the second pic, Thomas made some new besties! He was there for aaaall if the cuddles. I think he’s annoyed that he’s only got us and Marv now 😂 He likes having pals to run with on the beach too (the first pic) and Agnes definitely was a good beach buddy for him. Safe travels guys! I’m sure we’ll see you again 🤘

It’s crazy to me to think I was born right next to the ocean in sunny Southern California. Although I was physically born there my soul found its true home in the Rocky’s. Every time I go for a run in below freezing temperatures I feel a part of me grow and appreciate this place more and more. I can’t thank Colorado enough for bringing such a profound sense of joy to my life. 🏃🏽‍♀️❄️💨 #cantfeelmyface #10degreesbutfeelslikezero #imsmilingreallyhard

Yesterday we finally went snowshoeing! We haven’t gone at all this season because every time we go winter hiking the trails are packed down enough where we don’t need them. But we got so much snow over the last week that yesterday it was deep enough to go on a real snowshoe adventure. We ventured off and got a little lost, but it was truly amazing. And the best part, we barely saw anyone once we got deep enough in! It was silent and beautiful and one of our best snowy adventures. Hope you all had a great weekend! #gopro #optoutside #forceofnature #mydogismy #adventuredog #campingwithdogs

Saturday was awesome with friends in Hogwarts Canyon. Snow, cold, and sun but perfect. Although today was plans to hit another canyon until we woke up to a blizzard! We need the moisture but we also need to canyoneer. What do you do when your plans are changed? #canyoneering #winterblast

After all our fresh snow the other week we’ve had none since, but the clear sunny days and amazing sunsets have been more than making up for it... kinda. It’s been lovely to have some sun but more snow please! 🤞🏼 As you might have spied in our stories Syl and I headed out on a ski tour this morning, Al is still resting his knee and as I mentioned in another post we’ve been wanting to get Syl out by herself and she loved it, so nice to see her so enthusiastic and bouncy. Definitely need to make more of a thing of it! She does love Gus but has clearly been wanting a bit of only dog time 🐾

Not a typical SoCal winter but I love it! With the recent rain and snow come lots of road closures and accidents. Always check road conditions before you head out to your hiking destination. Be prepared with the necessary layers, water, extra food, emergency blankets, and micro spikes you may need for a day of snow hiking. Stay safe! ❄️ ⛄️ ❄️

I took them for a walk around the neighborhood yesterday. With all the snow, it was the best we could manage. I took their frisbee and played fetch with them. It keeps their attention on me. So they stay close and don’t wander too far. Yeti catches most of the tosses. He’s faster and has better eye-mouth coordination. But sometimes Inka catches them first. And when she does, she runs for it. Because Yeti hates it when she gets it first and will do everything he can to get it back. On one particular throw, Inka caught it in her mouth so that it blocked her eyes and she couldn’t see. The frisbee was a big donut around her whole face. With just her cute little nose poking through the middle of it. But she carried right on scurrying away from her brother the moment she had it. It didn’t matter that she couldn’t see. She ran straight into a neighbor. We all laughed at her silly antics. She kept running around and bumping into snowbanks and people until we snatched it from her and held it aloft for her to chase once again. As I lay on the couch with her later that night, I smiled at the memory and knew I had to write it down...

Last week some friends trusted me enough to lead a watercolor workshop for our church on watercolor basics and painting mountains! No idea if anyone learned anything, but watching hands pick up paint brushes and create something they never thought they would or could was just rad. And if you think I wasn’t able to somehow find a way to quote CS Lewis during a painting class, then you’re quite mistaken. ✌🏼 . . . . . . #watercolorpainting #watercolormountains #mountainart #mountainpainting #cslewis #cslewisquotes #thesimplethings #livejoyfully #findbeautyineverything #ventureout #greettheoutdoors #gooutside #seekadventure #choosemountains #getoutstayout #themountainsarecalling #optoutside #everytrailconnects #wildernessculture #theoutbound #keepitwild #in2nature #stayandwander #adventurethatislife #exploremore #goexplore #adventurevisuals

A special thanks to @larissacuervosaenz , @barber.jake , Sam, and Armando for a stellar expedition together to the Mexico Volcanos. # For the fourth year in a row, this @coloradomountainschool expedition has seen a 100% success rate on Pico de Orizaba (18,490'), Iztaccihuatl (17,159'), and La Malinche (14,501'). # Setting new altitude records, cultivating solid new friendships, and experiencing the local Mexican culture - so much to love about international expeditions. # In this photo, the team negotiates the stunning summit ridge of Pico de Orizaba, with the crater gaping to the right, and the Jamapa Glacier dropping off to the left. # Stay tuned over the next few days for a mini-series of photos from this expedition.

**Monday Motivation** - I climbed 61 mountains in a year ⛰️🎉 . "I wanted to see if someone ordinary like me could climb mountains. I wanted to be a role model for girls and to tell a story that had never been told." . After watching the film Everest, Emma Svensson - @emmasvenssonphoto - decided there wasn't enough adventure in her life, and wanted to start climbing immediately. Read the story of how she climbed the highest mountain in each European country in just one year! ➡️ Link in bio . 📷 @emmasvenssonphoto . . #climbing #mountaineering #mountains #rockclimbing #goals #determination #womenclimb #womenwhoclimb #womenwhoexplore #womeninadventure #womeninsports #genderbarriers #breakingtherules #expectations #inspiringwomen #mondaymotivation #choosemountains #adventurephotography

One of the most difficult things I experience in my travels is trying to relate what I've experienced to old friends, acquaintances and work colleagues who've been at home the whole time I was gone. I took this 📸 after climbing a difficult (for me) ice route in Cody. The rap was a full double length and my partner was far away at the base as I turned around and felt beautifully alone, wind howling, spin drift filtering down and the rolling storm clouds brooding and pushing themselves into this valley. So peaceful and so lonely in the best possible way. How do I convey all this on Monday morning in the work lunch room when a colleague asks 'so how was your weekend?' 🤔 #weekendwarrior #ventureout #exploremore #Nat_Explores . . . . . . . #neverstopexploring #natgeotravel #choosemountains #womenwhoexplore #alpinebabes #liveyouradventure #keepitwild #thegreatoutdoors #wonderlust #greatnorthcollective #wildernessculture #optoutside #theoutbound #nomadlife #adventureon #goatworthy #mountainview #vagabond #mountainclimbing #alpineclimbing #roam247

Snowmobiling is a thrill and a great way to see the backcountry in winter, and just about every town in the region has trail access nearby. There are literally thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails through Southwest Montana and many more acres in national forests are accessible as well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #playinthesnow #winterrec #winterrecreation #winter #snowday #snow #snowadventures #southwestmt #southwestmontana #digdeeper #montanassweetspot #montana #montanalife #montanagold #montanagrams #lovemontana #withmontanaitislove #treasurestate #bigskycountry #mountains #mountainlife #themountainsarecalling #takemetothemountains #choosemountains

Yesterday I needed to get out of the city. I’m thankful that these two tolerate my wild ideas. ♥️ “Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.” -Jim Morrison ♥️ . . . . . #photooftheday #picoftheday #instago #keepitwild #optoutside #getoutside #wildernessculture #lifeofadventure #liveoutdoors #makemoments #exploremore #stayandwander #happypeoplehike #lovelifeoutside #wanderlust #hikecolorado #colorado #outtherecolorado #girlswhohike #wishyouwerewest #westisbest #travelgram #liveunscripted #lifeofadventure #incrediblewest #hikingculture #choosemountains

The pure majesty of the Himalayan mountains. . Huge breath-taking structures that tower over you and fill you with a sense of just how small you really are. They make you feel tiny, but insanely powerful. You feel overwhelmed by the idea that YOU, this tiny human, can climb over gigantic snow-capped mountains like this. You realise just how amazing nature is, and just how much you are capable of. But, you also see the impact you can have on nature. You see the trash sometimes scattered on the floor or floating down the water. . What nature needs is for you to put that empty packet into your pocket and make sure it doesn’t end up buried in the snow or washed down the river like the rest. The Himalayas need you to help it retain its majesty. So, collect your trash, and get it where it can be disposed of properly. Take it back to Kathmandu if you can so it can be recycled! It’s very little extra to fit into your bag - a small sacrifice to preserve one of nature’s wonders. . So, wherever you go, be amazed by nature, and be your best self to allow it to continue to amaze others - and, well, save the world 🌎

Woke up to my hair matted on my head and dreading together after not washing it for a couple of days. 😂 I typically wash my hair every 3-4 days but am working to stretch it out to closer to 5-6 days if I don’t use a lot of product or sweat too much. How often do you wash your hair?

All it took was 3 months of being super lenient with my food choices, aka snacking all day rather than eating an actual meal, to feel like I lost control. We had just gotten married, I fit in my beautiful dress, so why not binge on all my favorite foods for awhile? . . . I remember seeing this picture from a get together with friends in December 2015. I has horrified. I had been feeling pretty lousy- bloated all the time, having more breakouts, my hair was getting greasy, I was tired all the time. Being unhealthy isn't just about weight- it affects a lot more. . . . So I made a decision right then that I was going to take control of my health. I used that anger to push me forward and make a change. I wanted to feel good again and I wanted to not have to look at another picture and feel angry. . . . 3 years ago I joined a virtual challenge group. I chose a 3 week fitness program to start. I needed more structure in my fitness routine. Having a personal trainer in my living room (or sometimes the apartment gym), having the calendar to follow, and a nutrition guide that actually taught and helped me, and the support and accountability of the group was the biggest game changer for me. . . . I went into with the intention of only doing 3 weeks to just get me back to feeling and looking better. What I gained was an insane understanding and appreciation of what it means to take care of myself first. To take care of my health and happiness. I gained confidence, I found a passion I didn't know I had, and I gained a new sense of self worth. . . . Instead of making excuses, tell yourself your health is not important. Doesn't feel good does it? Don't make change difficult- just start. Feeling good in your skin is the best feeling.💕

In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways and they're still beautiful.
