One of the coolest people I met while hiking in the Tetons was this guy Chris aka the Barefoot Bandit. While everyone else had their fancy hiking shoes (including me) this guy was walking the rugged Cascade Canyon in his god given flesh boots. When I saw him in the distance I immediately decided that we needed to be friends and we hiked the rest of the day together. He was a good dude who spent most of his time on the East Coast hiking off trail barefoot. People were amazed when he walked by and frequently commented. It was like hiking with a celebrity, just another memorable moment in my favorite place.
Here, we captured Cody during a rare moment of not being in “full-send” mode. With nothing but his own internal monologue and views of vast mountain ranges, he came as close to an existential crisis as he ever has, before staving it off at the last second by hollering “I’M DROPPING IN!!!” and proceeding to shred. .

Using nature's umbrella to hide from the sun. The tail end of a 3-day backpack through the Guatemalan highlands to Lago de Atitlán.
Sometimes I feel like dreaming...
Not much snow and too much sun so far this year, but Palmer cat skiing is still fun. Awesome day on corduroy.
Meet Rocky, the friendly, adventurous dog who we met on the 1st Peak of Mt. Batolusong. 😊
His owner is one of the hiking guides. He probably named him Rocky due to the mountain's "rocky" terrain, which serves as Rocky's playground! Ain't that cool? 👈 😎👉

Visited Taj Mahal and I can assure you that it is really beautiful...
I miss summer and Humboldt trips
I was talking to someone about manipulation today, and we discussed how cunning people are that they put us in a situation where we don't know how to react or say no. Later we call ourselves naive and dumb, because the person was a puppet master with tricks using our goodness as strings to control us. It's not our fault because in the moment we don't know how arrogant, cunning or cruel the person is. Being vulnerable and fragile isn't a flaw, but knowing our insecurities we shouldn't do what we don't feel comfortable with. I value love and trust in the highest extent, but it doesn't make me vulnerable, only stronger because I know it stands for good. Growing up, experiencing bullying, racism and pain..I realized that even if the world is giving me 10 reasons to be unhappy, hateful and hopeless, I have one reason to do good, because it's the right thing to do. At the judgement day, I don't expect to cash in my "goodness points", but merely going to say this is what my humanity expected of me so I did it. It's not a race, goodness or love, there is no winner or competition, just being in the moment; being your true self and holding on to what/who gives you peace. It's cold again, with -5*C and holidays are over. Off to bed, keep it real, amigos. Later.

That time I almost summited Hinman but made some silly routefinding errors. At least this wildfire sunset made up for it...kind of.
A sister is a little bit of childhood that could never be lost!
Dear snow, I miss you, come back! (I don’t miss the salty gunky slushy stuff on the roads, but the rest of the world looks so much more beautiful. didn’t take as much advantage of the weather as I could’ve, and I would like another chance!)
Dem Himalayan mornings 😊💙❄️ #twenepal

This weekend we rented a cabin near Mt. Baker. There were many photos up on the walls, one of them being a vintage photo of skiers walking down the road with Mt. Shuksan in the background. It was a moment of realization that these mountains have been around for ages, and a reminder that they’ll still be here for people to enjoy long after I’m gone. I am thankful for the organizations who continue to work to protect these wild places.

If only all days were like yesterday 👌🏻
There's science to why we love waterfalls; when water crashes earthward, it releases negatively charged ions that create positive vibes. They reduce anxiety and boost our daytime energy.
