Girls who climb mountains together stick together. Cheers to one of my first friends in Colorado with whom I hiked my first peak and am planning to be roomies with upon my return to the mountains.
"What Really Happens at the Top of featuring & yours truly. Hiking San Luis Peak this weekend w one of my first Colorado friends!
Apparently this week was the week I climbed Bear Peak & S. Boulder Peak because my Facebook memories keep throwing it in my face. I'm ok with it. I love seeing the newness I felt two years ago. I am also SO excited to move back (hopefully in August/September).
I turn 30 this month so to celebrate Im planning on returning to the first mountain I climbed: Guadalupe Peak. I remember climbing that mountain in non-mountain gear wearing trail shoes instead of hiking boots nearly running out of water and not realizing how incredibly hard a moderate trail with 3000 ft of gain truly is. What doesnt matter is that I am going to climb a mountain for my birthday. The length of the trail and elevation gain are silly numbers to keep track of. Theres no need…
BUCKET LIST ITEM: I am so much not scared of jumping off things compared to climbing them!
"Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While its still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends ramble out yonder and explore the forests climb the mountains bag the peaks run the rivers breathe deep of that yet sweet…
heading out for a quick solo adventure to mark a couple places off my Colorado bucket list.
Ok Instagram. I'm not going to Colorado now due to weather. I am going to head east from Arizona now and there are so many places to stop! Where would you go?
With all the snow in Colorado and rain in Texas maybe taking the long way through the desert is the perfect plan.
A little over 2 months until I get to call Colorado home again.
I get to go "home" to Colorado this week for a biz trip. I can't wait to write a gigantic blog post about how hard this past year has been for me. It's going to be a gritty one. I realized today that I've almost completely lost myself and not in the happy-wandering kind of way. Knowing that I'll be moving back to the mountains has already begun to light up the path back to myself. I don't care what anyone says: where you live and what/who you surround yourself with DOES matter.
I've got a few places I want to see/hike before my Colorado-exodus in two weeks: Maroon Bells Hanging Lake a hot spring and Mt Sneffels. I'll be seeing these places and more over the next two weeks. It's funny how you appreciate a place more when your time there has an expiration date. : @katieboue
Three adventurous women based in Boulder, Colorado spent the last four months taking on 13 foot mountains in Summer dubbing the project
"When I think about the most vivid memories of my life, the things that truly stand out are the ones that involved an outdoor adventure (like climbing to the top of Mt. Whitney via the East Buttress, (Climb To The Top Quotes)
Who in their right mind moves away from Colorado? I can't wait to move back in a few months!
"When nature suffers we suffer." - @janegoodallinst // Last week I finally decided to go 100% vegetarian after debating it for the last few months. In the last two months I have also been trying to find creative ways to minimize the amount of plastic and non-recyclable items I purchase. I now make my own toothpaste and this morning discovered the incredible benefits of washing my hair with baking soda and vinegar. Ive had to stop buying some of my favorite snacks because they come in…
