You mean I can’t bring this pool & view home with me 🙃

Current mood (or everyday mood, really): wanting to be a potato in the corner of the room 💁🏻♀️ #yaypotatoes
Winter was fun but I’m glad it’s coming to an end!
Can everything just turn green now?! Grateful for places like @cactusandtropicals
that let’s you have green all year round!
“Don’t you think that it’s boring how people talk?”
“Let them talk.”
Listening to the wise words of a Kiwi singer/songwriter today, because if you’re not listening to Lorde while you’re in New Zealand, then what are you even doing?
Haven't been able to shoot for a while now. Every so often life just get crazy busy. This is from a warm April sunset.
Can't wait to spend summer time somewhere south. 😍☀💕 #silhouette
Not long until the days will be longer, the weather warmer and the wheels of our rolling home will be spinning
Spring in Colorado!!! A combination of thunder, lightening and snow definitely made for an interesting storm. #thundersnow #springsnow
In a creative rut tbh. Any advice to get out of it?
Catching sunrise over the Atlantic. We woke up early and headed to Devils Bridge for a peaceful start to the morning before a hike up Antigua. We ended the day at the same place we started- the sunset was beautiful
Just nurse things, jk I'm Dumb 🤷🏽♂️!
It was a coincidence that I picked up a book that was titled Dumb. Like I'm not really. Some would disagree, but agree to disagree, ya? 🙂
I don't like falling into the trap of labeling feelings or circumstances.
Like, how a break up means heart break, but heart break feels so different for everyone.
Something I have known about myself my whole life is this feeling that gets labeled "seasonal depression". But being aware of a tendency like seasonal depression doesn't have to change anything for you.
Always beware of the trap that is- prescribing a condition and then defining yourself by it.
Sort of a bit of rambles... but in the meantime I'm just over here making the best of these last few chilly days before the Arizona spring time (meaning summer) kicks in!
Anyone else too ready for spring time??
You know when certain places unexpectedly become some of your favourite spots? NY is full of such places for me, but a couple are particularly special 🧡 Here’s the first one: Maddison Square Park and its immediate surroundings - Flat Iron just across the road 👆🏻, epic view of Empire State Building in the opposite direction, and NY Edition Hotel’s Clock Tower from which you can see all of Manhattan 🏙
A few days ago, we stopped in at the BLM visitor center in Kanab to apply for a permit to hike into ‘The Wave’. We were just passing through, and honestly had no intention of actually winning the lottery.
There are 20 total people permitted to visit this area of Vermillion Cliffs National Monument per day—10 permits are issued via advanced lottery 4 months out, and 10 the day before. There were 54 applications the day of our visit, for a grand total of about 150 people applying for 10 spaces.
And we won! We’ve wanted to visit this iconic feature for years, and I’m honestly still kind of blown away that we got a permit.
We know people that have been applying for years without success.
We personally love the idea of restricting access to these special places so they don’t get completely trashed by overuse, even if it means we never get to experience them. The lottery isn’t a perfect system by any means, but it works. Sharing such a unique feature with only a few other people that had also been educated about their impacts on the environment made it much more peaceful and enjoyable. It’s similar to the river permit system in the US, which we have also experienced and support, even though we didn’t get any river permits we applied for this year.
I’m curious what you think about this system or if you have any ideas about a good way to manage popular destinations and make sure we’re all on the same page to keep these places wild. Let me know what you think in the comments.

6 years ago today, I started my AT thru-hike... no clue what I was doing or getting into... shoot, I didn’t even know if I liked hiking. My curiosity shoved my common sense to the side and off I went... and what an adventure it was! I will never be the same again! #myATstory
