Hilary making her way across the Lyell Range. I’m definitely not the most confident mountain biker and prefer to take the descents with a fair amount of white knuckle braking but doing this track with these ladies was stress free and breezy, even if I walked all of the scary bits. 💆♀️
Flowy maxi dresses are in season and we're dying over this casual attire. What's your favorite piece in this look? 👇👇 Tell us in the comments.

Day 2: We woke up in Cottonwood Creek and it took some time to get going. I found it challenging to set up camp every night & then take everything down the next morning... only to do it all over again 12 hours later. But such is the backpacking life!
This was a lighter hiking day and heavy on play time. We took breaks at some amazing overlooks and, of course, there were multiple photo shoots. 😉 I ate an Uncrustable (second photo) at possibly the most beautiful place anyone’s ever eaten an Uncrustable. 🤣😍 We got our first glimpse of the Colorado River and it seemed so far away — I couldn’t believe that somehow we’d be camping down there on our 3rd night.
We ended the day at Hance Creek, where we bathed in the icy cool water and fell asleep to the croaking of 10,000 frogs.

this past weekend we got to watch two huge grizzlies feed in a meadow for almost an hour and it made us so so happy🐻✨ (swipe to the last slide for a video of one of them through our spotting scope) @justinstreeter00
Choosing a liveaboard diving trip?
It’s hard to be a scuba diver and not be interested in protecting the environment we love to explore. Liveboards get up + close to this environment and it’s crucial they behave properly.
@charlieunderwater shares on the #shewentwild blog her tips on selecting an ethical liveaboard ❤️
Swapped Southwest England for eastern Sardinia - still got an amazing sea view, just this ones a bit warmer and apparently it’s law to have gelato daily in Italy - so my boys tell me. I can live with that. If you’ve got any good Sardinia tips, I’d love to know them! Have you ever been?
Hello Spring! 🌸
Tidying up some loose ends and getting things ready for the seasonal transition. From cozy winter shanty back to dirtbag darling. 😉 In a few days I’ll be headed back to the west side to catch up with some family and then? LEAVENWORTH! ☀️💕
not a lot of words/ things on my mind this evening • it was a beautiful day, I soaked up lots of sunshine and I’m still smiling from all the human beings and their fluffy friends having a cozy time in the park today. ☀️
Hiking in Joshua Tree is so rewarding, a new treasure around every corner! Remember April 20th is National Park Day! Everyone will have the opportunity to explore our national parks at no charge! We highly recommend you take it vantage of getting out and experiencing what nature has to offer! 🌵🌞🌲🐾
Hibiscus, pink rose, sea salt, & baking soda. 🌸
I love adding baking soda to my bath salts because it make the water more alkaline, and this helps balance pH levels. Baking soda also helps detoxify the body, soothe sore muscles, and aid in UTI relief. Hibiscus flowers promote love, lust, divination, & dreams. 🌺 The pink rose petals promote divine, emotional, and thinking love. Sea salt baths are a calming way to cleanse your aura of negative energies. Salt water also helps assist in drawing toxins and heavy metals from our tissues, while the skin absorbs trace minerals from the water, and circulation is increased.
Im convinced that I was a mermaid or another sea creature (mermaid for sure 🧜♀️) in another life, so taking a bath is going home when I can’t get to the ocean. 🌊
What are your favorite herbs/spices/oils for a bath?
Sunset at the Grand Canyon.
My time here was the coldest part of my trip. The campground was nearly empty of people and completely full of snow. There had to be over a foot on the ground. I watched the sun slowly set at one of the rim lookouts, and hastily got back to camp to warm up some soup and go to bed. The low was about 8 degrees Fahrenheit. I stuffed Dharma into my two sleeping bags and we tried to sleep through it, though it was difficult. A few minutes before sunrise my alarm went off and I quickly packed the truck and drove to watch a very cloudy sunrise. After some research I found that Zion was the warmest place to go to with a low of only 34 degrees and we drove directly there.
I started my journey as a mover because I had no other choice. I had exhausted all of the skills I had for processing the expanse of what I was feeling. I had things I needed to communicate and there were no words specific enough or big enough to convey them. I needed a language that was larger than the one I could speak- a language that would allow my soul to communicate freely and without translation. Movement is that language. My body is the conduit of my soul and the movement is what it has to say.
Hello friends, how is everyone? What a strange, joyful week it's been my end✨ There has been much in- and outdoor therapy, a growthful, immersive weekend in the woods, total website rebuild, river wandering, slamming some doors shut and gratefully opening new ones, writing about lovely things and inspiring places, new collaborations in the offing, making plans with @rootedforgirls and just today a podcast landing with soul-sister @saspetherick. I've been pretty quiet and reflective this week, acutely aware of not being easy company at times, and I'm certainly doing a poor job of showing up here right now, but still on balance I hope I can say, It's All Good. Now, here I sit in the shed having a pause and a restful think (where would I be without the windows in my life that make this pastime such a joy to me) and wishing you a warm, nature-infused, connective Easter weekend ahead 🙏💚
My friends know how much I dislike spoilers; expectations can be set too high, and there’s nothing like going into something blind. In the nine hours I spent on this wonderlandesque table-mountain, my favorite parts were sights and experiences I wasn’t anticipating.
Many people head straight for either Hollow Falls or Phantom Falls, but if you look further, there’s a path less walked that leads to more flowers than I’ve ever seen and a gorgeous waterfall. I met a girl there that also moved from Florida, on the exact day that I moved (12/3/18). I’m pretty sure that was kismet, and you bet your ass I got her info.
Possibly my favorite highlight, is hiking down to Phantom Falls and showering beneath it’s pounding waters #thatswhatshesaid
This is the type of shit that I moved out West for.
