My weekends these days are made up of chilly mornings and starting fires in wood-burning stoves; of clay up to my elbows and sawdust in my hair; the grind of the miter saw and the sweet smell of cedar. Life is so good. (And the sauna is almost done! 😌)
This daily practice of walking has made me go outside even when I have a cold anwant to hibernate. I would have missed all this today. (And all the little mushrooms!) I think about that - all the things that I can see in a 20+ minute walk each day. There is much to see. #walkeveryday
In a world where setting just one FKT (fastest known time) is a lifetime achievement, Heather “Anish” Anderson (@anishhikes) has set the self-supported FKT on the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and Arizona Trail. She is also in a small, exclusive club of triple triple crowners- those who’ve hiked each of the triple crown trails three times each. And most recently, she became the newest member of the Calendar Triple club, to hike all three triple crown trails in a single calendar year. And this is just the tip of her backpacking resume iceberg. In other words, Anish is the GOAT, and we were blessed to borrow a few minutes of her time to talk about her current 8,000 mile journey.

Last time I was in the Grand Canyon was when I was 17 & on my 1st road trip across the country with a buddy. We were fortunate to get to backpack to the bottom & spend the night down there. So cool to return with my family & get a little taste of the hike down. Kids are excited to return & do the whole hike. #hiking#airstream#fulltime#globetrotter#travel#getoutside#grandcanyon
Mountain View’s are cool, but these glasses are pretty awesome too. 😬😂 I got teary-eyed on my way home today from work. So overwhelmed. My feelings got me. Yea, feelings. I still have them. So grateful for every thing that I have and don’t have. no, I don’t have everything. But I also don’t need everything.❤️
