March 21 is #internationaldayofforests Forests cover 1/3 of all land on Earth. They support countless species and are vital for keeping our planet alive. We depend on them for survival, from the air we breath to the Wood we use. They also offer waterbed protection, prevent soil erosion and mitigate climate change. Go explore a forest today, and connect to the beautiful energy our trees provide. 🌲🌳🌴🌲#redwoodforest #ilovetrees#hikingismagical
Seven years ago I was living in Denver, Colorado. I was working full-time, and rarely had two days off in a row. So, I did my best to cram adventures into 36 hour windows. I’ll never forget the time I packed up my car and drove six hours to Canyonlands and Arches National Park. I didn’t book a hotel. I didn’t have plans. I had never heard of Instagram. I didn’t even pack snacks or own a sleeping bag. By the time I arrived, it was nearly midnight. I was tired, so I tucked a roll of paper towel under my head and curled up beneath my jacket in the front seat. I slept for maybe an hour before waking up to drive, hike & wander aimlessly beneath a star-filled sky. It was my first solo trip out west, and it only lasted 18 hours. It was short, but sweet. It was everything I needed. Standing here again a few weeks ago; hiking the same dusty trail and seeing this delicate arch covered in snow...it was surreal. So many years and seasons between then and now; so many things that have changed. In the best of ways. I couldn’t help but smile. Maybe partly because, at least one thing is the same. I’m still in love with the place. ☽☾ 📷: @christianschaffer #hikingdogsofinstagram#hikingmalaysia#hikingworldwide#hikingadventures#hikesandiego#hikingismagical#hikewithfriends#hikeoftheday#hikehikehike#hikingpup
No matter how bad I feel about myself, how much I hate my body, my skin, my hair, no matter how much I tear myself down...I will always go out of my way to make other feel good about themselves. I shoot to make art, to curb a never ending craving. I want to capture beauty and YOU ARE BEAUTY. You are you which is spectacular. Those nuances you wish to change are beautiful to someone else but for some reason we can’t to love those things in ourselves. Some say they would KILL for your curves, kill for your hair, kill for your skin color. I want to make you feel like you are enough. You don’t have to *kill* to be something you’re not.
These quiet moments away from urban distractions, technology and scheduled lives allow for these beautiful moments of solitude. They reconnect to find so many ways to play. Want to know what they were discussing? 🗣 Their plans for jumping on the hotel beds 😆 . . . #parkseekers#siblings#saguaronationalpark#familieswhohike
Η πραγματική ευτυχία δεν βρίσκεται στο να λύσουμε όλα τα προβλήματά μας αλλά απλώς να αλλάξουμε τον τρόπο με τον οποίο τα αντιμετωπίζουμε.💯 Κάθε πρόβλημα είναι και μια ευκαιρία για να μάθουμε κάτι καινούριο και να βρούμε νέους τρόπους σκέψης😉
A year ago we launched into an ambitious project alongside @jaybirdsport to capture stories of the growing revolution in running cultures around the world. It’s been a wild ride, but I’m beyond excited share the 6th episode of the series shot with an incredible team in Ethiopia alongside the Girls Gotta Run Foundation • • For this chapter I traveled to Bekoji, Ethiopia, a small rural farming village with deep roots in long-distance running. What we found there was a revolution—an incredibly inspiring and driven group of young female runners who were part of the @girlsgottarun , a non-profit dedicated to using Ethiopia’s national sport of running to create safe spaces, expand education and empower young Ethiopian women and their communities • • I’m excited to share that after a memorable journey, @jaybirdsport is contributing to Girls Gotta Run in a creative and impactful way. Check out the film to learn more. @camp4collective @etteloc @firstrun @rorybosio @wrkshrt @lazerlegs @niceshoesonline @tinylionmusic 📷: @timkemple #hike#forest#colorado#hikingtrails#hikingismagical#hiketime#hikeing#hikethesmokies#mountainhike#sepatuhiking
Each hike is so unique and special here in #palmsprings and as I walk it becomes a moving meditation. I am mindful of the beauty of nature around me which creates space within me to give more love and light to others. . . . I have realized more on this trip than previous ones how depleted I was. My spirit was drained. I now feel restored and inspired. . . . Each cacti is so unique and beautiful in its own way, much like each of us. Some of you will appreciate the lengthiness of this post and I have also received messages saying I preach too much. The ladder is never my intention. I enjoy sharing my experiences is all. . . . I am sending love and great energy to all who could use a boost today. Remember, all is possible when you believe and put energy into your dreams and visions rather than fears and doubts. .

#repost @hikingbangers ・・・ “Life is full of possibilities. But often, our struggles make it hard for us to see the prize ahead. Due to circumstances we usually can’t control, we give up on our dreams or simply ride along the waves. We think that just because we’ve missed the bus that we can’t get to where we want to be. Nothing’s ever too late. Opportunities are always right around the corner if we simply have enough faith to make that turn. People frequently forget that they already possess the skills and talent they need to make things happen.” ~Everyday Power . . . . . . . . . . ________________________________________ 📸:@walasavagephoto @carrieoutdoors #journeytoselflove#hikingadventures#hikingismagical#mountainlovers#resetyourmind#norwaynature#norwaytravel#changemaker
