When I think of the amazing things that happened this year, my trek to Annapurna Base Camp with my mom immediately jumps to mind. There’s something special about navigating the parent-child-friend relationship and this adventure was punctuated by a sense of gratefulness that Mom was healthy and able enough to complete it with me after everything she’s been through in the last two years. What things are you reflecting on now that the decade is drawing to a close? Swipe for a pretty little sunset moment! ....#sheexplores#shemovesmountains#sheisnotlost#optoutside#nepal#himalayas#trekking#everyoneoutside#choosemountains#adventuremamas#pnwow#womenwhohike

I’ve spent the last two days painting, charring, and hanging with some wonderful women. It’s been so fun and refreshing in a season of life that’s left me feeling a bit burnt out. I’m excited to sit with their contagious energy and excitement and see what new road it takes me down. How’s your week shaping up? .....#findyourpark#optoutside#rei1440project#tetons#nps100#grandteton#getoutside#wyoming#getoutstayout#choosemountains#theoutbound#goparks#nationalparks#nationalparkgeek#keepitwild#adventureculture#exploremore#thegreatoutdoors#nps#stayandwander#nationalpark#usinterior#goatworthy#liveoutdoors

This moment of pre-holiday zen brought to you by @glaciernps! Watching this sunrise with @nickrlake and @clumsysloth on assignment with @visitmontana was so special. Definitely a top moment of my year! #montanamoment#optoutside

I watched this moment unfold with tears in my eyes, the lovely strains of “Promise” by @benhoward_ floating on the evening breeze. I took a moment to reflect on all the unlikely twists and turns that lead me to the Dempster Highway at midnight by myself and I celebrated. What are you celebrating lately? ......#travelyukon#sheisnotlost#sheexplores#pnwoutdoorwomen#optoutside#stayandwander#thegreatnorthcollective#flashesofdelight

What a difference a decade makes! In 2019 I had just returned home from a year in Seoul, South Korea where I worked as an English teacher when I wasn’t exploring. I was a little bit lost in terms of what I wanted to do with my life and my focus was much different. Fancy clothes? Check. Heels? Check. Struggling to find a sense of belonging with my peers? Check and check. Flash forward 10 years. I have the same bangs and I’m still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up but I’ve settled into my skin. I’ve found a calling, passion, and community that sees me for me and celebrates with me. I’ve found a partner and love in Matt unlike anything I’ve experienced before. It’s a beautiful thing. What are the biggest things that you’ve learned in the last decade? I want to know! #optoutside#sheisnotlost#sheexplores#photochallenge2019

In the depths of winter I found that within me, there lay an invincible summer. - Albert Camus Whatever you’re struggling with right now, I hope you find your summer my friends. And when you do, find the beach and invite your friends in for a party because we are better together, always. 💕......#thatsdarling#flashesofdelight#coldstoked#optoutside#gameoftones#pnwonderland#getoutside

[#sponsored] As the seasons change, I’m keeping my skin nourished and protected with Green Tea SPF 30 from @100percentpure. I’m an avid hiker and sunscreen enthusiast and this time of year is no exception. Our skin is susceptible to sun damage on even the greyest of days and the threat of a sunburn is even higher when the snow sets in. This all natural sunscreen with zinc oxide and other soothing ingredients keeps me protected so I can explore from sunrise to sunset! Pro tip: don’t forget the back of your hands, ears, or the bottom of your nose! #100percentpure@100percentpure

@jaybirdsport sent us their #EarthProof Vista wireless headphones and we put them through the wringer at Smith Rock over the weekend. I’m notoriously hard on my gear so I need headphones that can take a beating, from being stuffed into my gear bag to exposure to the elements. The Vistas deliver—giving slip-proof, stellar sound no matter how hot and sweaty it gets outside and long battery life to keep the tunes going all day long! #JaybirdVista#ad
