Only shot that was clear enough to post! Antelope Canyon was beautiful and freezing but checked off the list. Only complaint, no room to explore.
That look you get when you come across mountain lion tracks hiking alone

When I look back on 2017 I can hardly believe my eyes. 2016 me was safe, pretty predictable, and fairly miserable. I never saw my husband, I never slept, and I was stressed to an unsustainable level. This time last year I was at a job I hated, living a life I never had time to enjoy. It's hard to believe in April in a span of a few weeks we bought a camper, sold everything that wouldn't fit in it, and hit the road. We had no idea what we were doing, but we knew we wanted out of the rat race we came to know as life. I'm sure there are slower ways to get off the hamster wheel of monotany, but J and I jumped off, all or nothing, the biggest leap of faith of both of our lives, and never looked back. This life we have now exceeds my wildest 2016 daydreams. Today J grabbed my hand in the car and told me he's so happy to have a life where we spend every day together. You see, we've been together 8 years and 2017 is the first year we have ever had a lifestyle where we could spend every day together, or even see each other daily. And for that reason I know this was all worth it. We may not have known what we were doing when we left Louisiana 8 months ago, but I know now that we made the right choice. 📷 by @thehikingmermaid
Standing on edge of tall things since 1999. 😃 From some random conversation with the kiddo last night and some funny stories actually, we ended up digging some good old pictures and even close to 2 decades later (since I started hiking), this place is still one of my absolute favorites on this earth. Pardon my old Arnette shades...😎 And there will be more old pictures soon!! 😆 : #tb #pedradagávea #riodejaneiro #cidademaravilhosa #trilhasdorio #hometown #badasshikingwomen #goadventuretogether #peoplewhoadventure #peoplewhohike

As much as I enjoy my life out here, having my family 2400 miles away during the holidays can sometimes be hard. . . I’m so excited to be flying home in a weeks time to see my family. But until then, I’ll enjoy not dealing with shoveling snow, this view and all those wonderful holiday movies on Netflix. Happy Holidays! 🎄🎉🎁⛄️ . . . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #pnwcollective #pacificnorthwest #holidays #mounterie #washington #wanderwisely #wander #stayandwander #theglobalwanderer #mountainchicks #badasshikingwomen #pnwgirls #herpnwlife #liveintrepid #amoungthewild #nikonlove #forceofnature #thediscoverer #compassoutdoors #tourtheplanet #mountainstones #mtnchicks #bethechange #optoutside #roamtocreate #seetheworld
Inspiring Hiker: @michahastattoos / Micha says, “ ‘It's so dark at night / And since they outlawed love / It gets too cold / There's no one to hold / There's no one here’ -Minus the Bear, Heaven is a Ghost Town ~ This weekend I was lucky enough to host the @mtnchicks with @broloelcordero and @eastmeetsmex for a @borderangelsofficial water drop in the CA desert. Why? Because each year hundreds of men, women and children die trying to cross the border for a better chance at life. Despite anyone's political view, at the very least, I hope we all can agree that everyone deserves to live. This isn't politics. This is life and death. It's humanitarian. And I can't wait to get back out there with the Border Angels in the future. Heaven isn't a Ghost Town. Not as long as there are people out there willing to help. ~ If you have questions about what we were doing, or what we learned about migrants, feel free to reach out to myself, James or Jacqueline.”
@lindseyanneoutside enjoying a winter wonderland! Where are all of you badasses planning on doing a snow hike this winter? #Repost @lindseyanneoutside ( @get_repost) ・・・ How to have a crowded summit to yourselves on a sunny weekend in Washington: bring a tent and stay a while 😍 #badasshikingwomen #strongwomen #winterwonderland #snowhikes #optoutside

"When my train go down / She's rollin' down the line" -Grateful Dead, Big Railroad Blues ~ New post up on the blog highlighting my trek to the Goat Canyon Trestle on the Carrizo Gorge Railroad, AKA The Impossible Railroad. Also threw in some rail history! 😉 Link in bio.
My shirt say "Who would Jesus deport?" I know this is a controversial topic and quite honestly i'm happy to stand up for what I believe in. @borderangelsofficial does monthly water drops in hopes to help people from dying. How? Well dehydration is one of the main causes of death in the desert.

Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s about learning how to control your fear. And how to be free from it.💚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •If you know me, you know what happened to me 4 months ago at Maquoketa Caves, and no doubt that was and will probably be the scariest moment of my life, but I know that was probably a once in a lifetime experience. Maquoketa Caves is a safe place and extremely beautiful. So glad I went back, definitely will be heading back next year.
If you read “Germany” word, you would think of a great power country with its cold weather, the land of poets and thinkers, the land of classical music, romanesque architecture. They’re all the reason I picked Germany for study abroad 7 years ago. Now I found more reasons to stay: their landscapes! 😍 ———————————————————————— Tag someone you know who takes great photograph, I’ll check them out 😉
There are friends, there is family, and here are friends that become family. Friends for 25 years and counting we used to say we where cousins back in school, showered and play in the bathtub Lol. When I left to Mexico in middle school, we write letters to each other. And here we're now, empowering each other, climbing mountains and making new memories.

Ohhhh ❤️
Saturdays are for checking off bucket list hikes. Such a rad day. 🤙🏼💚
I’ve been so grateful for opportunity to join Girls Who Hike. A team of 40,000 ladies strong across the USA that includes 50 chapters and a team of 100 inspirational ambassadors. As the Georgia Ambassador I’ve been able to empower outdoor enthusiasts, organize and lead hikes, and connect with other local organizations that believe in the potential of women and finding their power and place in nature. I am excited to announce that I will be continuing my adventures with Girls Who Hike this next year as the 2018 ambassador. . . Looking back at these pictures brings back so many genuine and lasting memories that were created over the past year. I’ve met some truly amazing and inspirational women along these trails. I can’t wait to conquer and share more in the future. . . Interested in what other chapters @girlswhohikeofficial has to offer across the US? There is a link you can find in my bio with a list of 2018 ambassadors and their regional chapters. Also, there is a link found in my bio for joining our GA @girlswhohikeofficial chapter with events and info found on our Facebook group.
The desert flowers of Utah were stunning in the Spring. Their vibrant colors dotted the neutral colored landscape. It's as if they were placed sporadically as a reminder that beauty can be found in smallest things.
Just wanted to give a huge shout out to @switchbackchics for making it to the Toy Drive on Saturday! This clothing company works to promote women in business and has super cute stuff to boot. They drove all the way out from Arizona just to be there. Show them some love and give 'em a follow! . . . #hikeinlandempire #hikeie #modernhiker #socalhiker #hiking #52hikechallenge #TODSL #whatsyour20 #visitcalifornia #hikingwithfriends #igobeyond #nbc4you #abc7eyewitness #cbsla #unlimitedcalifornia #naturalcalifornia # #californiathroughmylens #wildcalifornia #caliexplored #california4fun #ieshineon #outdoorwayoflife #onlyinsoutherncalifornia #fueledbychimes #peoplewhoadventure #mtbaldy #badasshikingwomen #switchbackchics #mtbaldy
Do you see a creature on top of that hill? That’s a monk. Does anyone have an idea how he gets up there? Or what is he doing? 😳
Some people want diamond rings, some just want everything, but everything means nothing; if I ain’t got you. My best friend and travel buddy! I don’t go anywhere without this noodle! Always have my back! #badasshikingwomen #motherdaughter #motherhood #hotsprings #mammothlakes
The sun is setting on 2017... what do you have left to accomplish? What are you looking forward to? #Repost @stephanie_loves_adventures with @repostapp ・・・ It was a perfect day and a perfect sunset.

Congrats to this badass for her first summit of Mount Baldy! @kroqluv had been one of our biggest supporters and we are so proud of her! 💪💪💪 #Repost @kroqluv ( @get_repost) ・・・ #Hike23 #Round2 #MountBaldyPeak #52HikeChallenge This year I vowed to complete the 52 Hike Challenge and accomplished that. If you follow my Journey you know that I started my Journey with Pumpkin Rock. And that small Hike was a challenge for me at the time. I hyper ventilated at the top. As my Jouney started to unfold, I set my sights to conquer one #Peak by the end of the year. I honestly had No idea if I was ready. But today was the day I would push and test my body, endurance, and tenacity. I conquered #MountBaldy. It was tough, especially since I went back down the wrong Trail and ended up walking down Ski Hut only to have to walk back up the Summit again, ugh. So I hope this inspires at least one person. I am an Plus Size/BBW woman in my 40's and I don't let that limit the things I want to do or set my sights on. Believe in yourself and make things happen. The self accomplishment can be so rewarding. And even though I hiked this solo and wanted to give up because of the wind, the cold, and elevation sickness, I pushed forward. . . . #Hiking #Hike #TrailDolls #52HikeChallenge2017 #52HikeChallenge #Round2 #AdventureSeries #ExplorerSeries #52HikeChallengeFinisher #BadAssHikingWomen #ToughWomenOnly #WomenWhoHike #FriendsWhoHike #GirlsHikingClub #SoCalHiking #SoCalHikes #FatGirlsHiking

Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder. ✌ #mondaymotivation #thatview #windybluff #sunset #outdoorgirl #nofilterneeded #SeekAdventure #livingmyPNW
It’s the friends we meet along the way that help us appreciate the journey!! So happy to have met like minded hikers this weekend!! Hope y’all have a fantastic week!!! #mondaymotivation #internationalmountainday
Have y’all checked out the account @fatgirlstraveling? Highly recommend giving them a follow! Here’s @tiffany.arlene from the Fat Girls Traveling page: “So I had a moment of awakening during my trip this past weekend and here is what I learned: How dare I spend my hard earned money on a dream getaway just to get there and be filled with self doubt and shyness. Once I stepped out of my shell I was able to meet some amazing women and truly experience everything our trip had to offer. Who would have thought I’d really jump off of multiple platforms zip lining and ATVing through the lush mountains of Montego Bay, riding on a catamaran while taking in the views of the shore, river tubing the jungle, and more. At the end of the day I can honestly say that ‘I lived my best life’ in Jamaica and don’t plan to stop anytime soon.” . #fatgirlstraveling
The Cathedral of León, also known as Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary, stands beautifully in the heart of Léon, Nicaragua. To my disappointment, the day I was in the city, the Cathedral was closed. I've seen photos and heard amazing things about the beauty within and on the roof. Looks like I'll have to go back! Is there a place you were looking forward to seeing and were unable to? - - - - - - - - - - #leon #nicaragua #cathedral #visitnicaragua #travelbff #womenwhoexplore #dametraveler #girlswhotravel @travel.simply #roaminglovetravel @lonelyplanet @she.travelz @girlslovetravel @girls_love_adventure @girlsthatwander @itchtofly #traveldreamseekers @traveldreamseekers @her.wild #travelplaylive @travelgals #babeswhowander #werugged #outdoorbella #sheadventures @wanderlusts_anonymous #peoplewhoadventure #weliveweexplore #herwanderfullife #adventureofalifetime #girlgetters #herwild @travelcommunity @intrepidtravel #abstractheavenadventurers #shewantsadventure #badasshikingwomen #solovacationers #iexplore #bucketlistbeasts
