#sponsored From the coasts of Oregon and California to the mountains of Washington, I've been hiking and exploring for the past month in @topoathletic trail runners. Last year, I switched to trails full time for all of my hiking and haven't looked back... They're ultra lightweight, breathable, and ready for any terrain you can throw at them. #mytopoadventures#movebetternaturally#topoathletic
• “Vanlife for me has meant trading modern conveniences in exchange for personal freedom. It’s meant giving up certain comforts, but attaining personal growth. It means living sparingly in material ways so that I can live a fuller life in other ways The truth is you don’t need a van like mine to enjoy vanlife. I’ve camped out of the back of an SUV and loved that too. If you feel like vanlife is for you and your funds are low then start with an older more affordable van, a sleeping bag and build it out as you go. Each person is on their own journey and the important thing is simply to get started no matter what. The journey of 1000 miles begins with one step. “ . 📸 @the.boondocker @project.vanlife .

The 750 mile Arizona Trail through ride is reaching it's penultimate challenge, a 21 mile rim-to-rim bike portage through the Grand Canyon. Think about it. First you ride your loaded bike 660 miles across rugged terrain, searing desert, miles of hike-a-bike gaining elevation up to 8000'. All self-supported. Now, disassemble that trusty steed and strap it to your back. 74 miles of riding on the often snowy North Rim await, not quite a victory lap, but close. The orange hues of Utah sandstone come into view, one final 1500' descent is all that remains between you and the complete transversal of State 48, from Mexico to Utah. This is often touted as the toughest singletrack race around, hard to argue. I completed this beast in 2016 and long for a return ride.

This is me. I’m the girl who loves adventure more than anything else. Tacos are a close second. Cats are a close third. That’s not entirely true but at the moment it’s pretty darn close. I’m happy. I do my own thing. I don’t put up with BS. I notice kindness before I notice looks. Ok that’s not true, but kindness will go farther with me than being friends with someone attractive. I love music. Almost all music. Just not Adele, lady Gaga or Stevie nicks. Sorry not sorry. I like a good sugar cookie and I appreciate wit and a good sense of humor. I don’t take anything too personal and it takes a lot to offend me. If we share inside jokes then you’re my best friend. Im simple minded and easily amused. I don’t let people tell me what to do and if they try I’ll do the opposite. Some call that stubborn. I call it free will. I don’t like driving unless it’s a road trip. I’m not a drinker or a partier. I get my high from adventuring 🤘🏻 #thisisme
When the world wants to swallow you up ... ok so I know you are all probably tired of snow but I took this picture only 2 days ago and I’m still having a blast with winter! That said, today I had the most AMAZING day in the desert 🌵 so things are going to change on my wall real quick!!!
Couldn't be happier for this man or more proud as he takes another step in the right direction for his career. He never likes to talk about himself so ya know what I'm going to shout him out myself because he deserves it lol! After working for a tech company for a little over a year and feeling unfulfilled, Joe has finally found a new work family to join! He has accepted a new position with Gensco as a Software Developer! I'm so happy for him because this is so well-deserved. He is so hardworking, intelligent, innovative, dedicated, and his skills and passion for the job only continue to grow. He is finally being paid a good salary that a software engineer of his experience level in the Greater Tacoma/Seattle area should be receiving and the bonus is he doesn't have to do any insane commuting to Seattle or Bellevue! He also gets great benefits and they gave him extra paid vacation time on top of what he already gets to start which he didn't even ask for! They were also quick to accept his requested salary which I thought was pretty cool. He already seems to vibe really well with his new team and is so excited to start this next chapter in his career. He loves the family-owned aspect and hopes to grow with them. He also got the wedding/honeymoon off lol! I'm so excited to continue watching you grow Joe and to be there by your side for all your career and personal accomplishments. I will forever be your hypewoman and I have no shame in it. Next stop, finishing his Bachelor's Degree in 2020! . . . . . . . . . . . . #tbt#mountains#visualsoflife#view#pnw#washington#pnwonderland#pnwlife#upperleftusa#nature#explore#adventure#outdoors#optoutside#getoutside#roamtheplanet#welivetoexplore#exploretocreate#pnwcollective#letsgosomewhere#northwestisbest#hike#hiking#wanderlust#beautiful#fiance#bestfriend#soulmate#love#iloveyou
