"Live for moments you can't put into words." - When is the last time you put a "first" in front of you? Something you take on and then look back knowing you can and you did! 🙌 Like these (awesome) women on one of first @nwoutwardbound all women courses - 1971. #throwbackthursday 📸 @nwoutwardbound

I talk a lot about LNT, but lots of people still ask me what LNT means. LNT stands for Leave No Trace. What that means in a nutshell: leaving a place as good, if not BETTER than what you found it, and leaving a place looking as if you had never been there. How can you do that? Here are a few pretty simple ways: 1.) OBEY SIGNAGE, STAY ON ESTABLISHED TRAILS AND HARD SURFACES - So many people are guilty of going off-trail to get an awesome photo or sit down to take a rest. The thing is, when everyone does it, topography gets worn down, plants get trampled (yes, even grass is crucial to pay attention to). If you do one thing to help LNT, please please please stay on trails. 2.) LEAVE IT CLEANER THAN YOU FOUND IT - Easy as that, don't leave garbage, and if you see any, take an extra second to grab it and find a trash can. If you don't, an animal may eat it - that can cause an obstruction, poisoning, or death. It also leads animals to be habituated to humans; that means animals like bears will need to be euthanized. 3.) PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS - For the love of all things, pay your park fees. Don't try to sneak in after hours when no staff is on duty, or take your chances with a randomly inspected forest service location. Better yet, by an annual parks pass, whether that's a national parks pass, forest service pass, or something specific to your local area. Often times they're priced so if you're visiting more than 3 paid sites, you're already saving yourself money.Another option (in addition to paying your park fees)? Donate to a nonprofit that works to protect public lands.
All smiles today😁 I just got back from visiting one of my favorite waterfalls in Oregon & get back into service to see one of my photos got featured on REI. So grateful❤️I think the last time I was this happy was when I was at havasu falls, where this picture was taken. Hope everyone is having an awesome Thursday💕
The natural beauty of some spots just stays with you. That’s why we decided to explore more of Vancouver Island this summer which means more Tofino!! Looking forward to saltwater therapy, uncrowded lineups, vistas surrounded by towering cedar trees, crackling bonfires on the beach at sunset, outings by boat to hot springs, hopping island to island and great local food .. can’t wait! 💕
