Oh Colorado missing you ... I love your beauty ..this hike was a good one! It starts at just under 10k elevation and goes up to 12,110 feet at upper Mohawk Lake .. you start down on the valley floor waaay down there.. this pic is from about 1/2 - way up to the top. There were huge waterfalls, two lakes, old mining gear and cabins.. simply stunning kick ass hike. Not too far from Breckinridge on that side of the Rocky Mountains. Oh and I tripped and fell at the bottom .. face planted I was so tired I couldn’t save myself from a small ankle twist .. oh and there was someone right behind me.. a young guy. He was a little embarrassed for me. 😂😂 I was fine ., it’s just after you done all these huge rock scrambles and a big hike but you trip on flat land.. it’s pretty damn funny. I love it all.. dreaming of you mountains.. ⛰⛰⛰ #thehealinghiker #justgobutdonttrip #coloradohiking #travelphotography #rockymountains

Selfishly-seeking more couples to cook backcountry meals during Elopements (and maybe share with me) 🍳🔥🤤 Jerry and Emily traveled from Boston to Elope in the magical wilderness of Colorado! We began their day in the dark of early morning, before the first light, hiking into the forest in the dark with our headlamps. After we reached the alpine lake, they had a short ceremony on the shore, followed by a first dance in the colors of the alpenglow. We finished off the morning with Jerry playing wilderness chef and making us *the best* breakfast sandwiches. Sunrise elopements with awesome clients are always amazing; but sunrise elopements with awesome clients and breakfast in the woods? Perfect day, 10/10. Looking to have an incredible adventure elopement of your own? Send us a message! We can help you plan everything from location to finding the perfect vendors to include on your day, and we travel world-wide! 💕👏🔥🙌🙌🙌 Dress: @bhldn Flowers: @boulderblooms

“Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.” -Walt Whitman This spot was easily in the top 5 for most picturesque along the CT. Yes, those are switchbacks at the bottom of the shot. This half-mile section of trail is more than enough reason to go southwest - climbing this wall would be some WORK. . . . . . #coloradotrail #coloradohiking #coloradophotography #coloradooutdoors #coloradomountains #coloradohikes #coloradoadventures #optoutside #choosemountains #backpacking #hiking #thruhiking #nature

From Dream Lake to Emerald Lake there was progressively deeper powder, until with each step we were sinking 2-3 feet. We met a Ranger on his way down and he said he was “post-holing” (sinking) even with snowshoes! #wearmicrospikes #bringsnowshoes #hikingcolorado #coloradohiking #coloradohikingtrails #rockynps #rmnp #rockymountainnationalpark #sloggingthroughsnow #dailyadventure #coloradowinter #getoutsideandexplore #elevatedadventures #womenthathike #babyitscoldoutside #coloradogram #emeraldlakecolorado

Another throwback from Colorado! Idk why but I really like this picture. I guess it's proof that a situation can be what you make of it. We were trapped in a shitty downpour in RMNP but it was all good. We had some shelter thanks to @overland.discovery and we had each other! 🙃 • #colorado #rmnp #rockymountainnationalpark #rockymountains #coloradolife #coloradophotography #coloradogram #coloradooutdoors #coloradomountains #coloradoadventures #coloradountamed #coloradohiking #hikingcolorado #roadtrip #overlanding #overlanddiscovery #jeepwrangler #jeeplife

⁣Am I living the life I deserve? Am I settling, or going after what I truly want and desire?⠀ ⠀ These are great questions to ask yourself on a weekly basis.⠀ ⠀ If you're not going after what you truly want out of life, it's time to ask yourself why.⠀ ⠀ Ask yourself: "What's stopping me from pursuing the life I desire?"⠀ ⠀ It could be fear of success or failure. Fear of the unknown or change.⠀ ⠀ Once you figure out what's holding you back, write it down. Then next to it, write down all the reasons why these fears are unfounded.⠀ ⠀ This releases their grip over you, and reduces your feelings of overwhelm.⠀ ⠀ Live the life you deserve, and go kick some butt!!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #livelife #livelifetothefullest #livelifehappy #livelifeoutside #livelifefully #livelifebeautifully #livelifenow #livelifelovelife #livelifeloud #livelifeoutdoors #livelifeonpurpose #nosettling #movingforward #movingforwardinlife #movingforwards #movingforwardalways #lifehacker #lifehacking #lifehacks101 #coloradolove #coloradooutdoors #coloradohiking #coloradohikes #coloradoviews #mindsetcoach #mindsetcoaching⠀ ⠀

"I just smile because he doesn’t know what I know, that, as stupid as it sounds, sometimes you have to live alongside the things you don’t want, like cancer, and doing that helps you go deeper into life than you’ve ever gone before. If we all lived forever, I tell him, then life really wouldn’t have any meaning. So why not embrace it, prepare for it, love what is?" -Maddie Dawson • • • • • #aspen #coloradomountains #viewsfromcolorado #explorecolorado #coloradohiking #intothewild #goexplore #lifeofadventure #wildernessculture #adventureawaits #simplyadventure #getoutside #keepitwild

Sending all the love to this guy and his family today. Horatio lost his big sister Keenyah. I never had the privilege of meeting Keenyah, but I’ve heard so much about her, and if she was anything like her three siblings, then she must have been an absolutely wonderful dog.

Second post on a great Jefferson County Open Space Park: Aldefer-3 Sisters Park in Evergreen, CO.! At the end of the video are three prominent rock formations all near 7800’ elevation from which the park gets part of it’s name, “the Three Sisters.” And my first post on this park featured “the Brother” Overlook and now you see how they are related! 👩🏻👩‍🦰👱‍♀️+👱‍♂️ Also featured in the video and pic is 8,442’ Elephant Butte which forms the western boundary of this park! This is a =great= mountain park less than 45 minutes from Denver!!! 🌞⛰🌲⛰🌲⛰ #aldeferthreesisterspark #jeffersoncountyopenspace #jeffcotrails #evergreencolorado #co #colorado #coloRADo #colorfulcolorado #coloradolife #coloradooutdoors #hike #coloradohiking #hikecolorado #optoutside #lifeisgood #livingthedream

I have been posting a lot lately. I was supposed to go climbing this week and decided since the weather is shit I'd continue getting caught up on my work. However i like to live by shoot now edit later. A lot of photographers outsource their editing. Which means, that at any time if something were to happen to me my work can still be edited by someone who knows my style. You cant always shoot. Editing can be done at any time. . . So here is a beautiful shot of the three apostles seen from huron peak. I hope to conquer these this year. They are massive and intimidating. Ice mountain the middle is actually 13,957ft its so short from a 14er and honestly pretty difficult. Some places are class 5, 4, and 3. So so beautiful! . . #colorado14er #14er #14ers #hiking #coloradohiking #huronpeak #huronpeakcolorado #denverphotographer #landacape #landscapes #mountain #mountains #mountainscape #beautiful #awestruck #camping

What’s one of your favorite ways to stay active? Hiking in the most scenic of areas is one of mine! Although weightlifting is my passion the views just don’t compare to being outdoors in nature and seeing the world for all of its beauty. Here’s a little #throwbackthursday to summers in the mountains of Jackson Hole. I sure do miss the beauty of my hometown. 🏔 #jacksonhole #jacksonsuckstellyourfriends #coloradohiking #coloradofitness #colorfulcolorado #noplacelikehome #outdoorphotography #visitjacksonhole #girlswithmuscle #girlswholift #strongwomen #gains #photooftheday #redheadsdoitbetter #blondeshavemorefun #fitchicksofig #mountains #adventure #explore #fitnesstrainer #balance #coloradopersonaltrainer #gymadvice #fitlifestyles

#throwbackthursday #tbt Definitely thinking more about summer weather and hiking. This hike to Mayflower Gulch and Boston Mine ruins is a favorite. Always has wonderful flowers but is easy access in winter. The Boston Mine was mainly lead, with some shafts as high as 11,982 feet. Always amazed at where people were able to mine. 😎⛰🌄 . . #Colorado #coloradowildflowers #hiking #nature #GetOutdoors #mountains #VisitColorado #getoutthere #landscapes #photography #livelifeoutsideCO #explorecolorado #colorado_travel #colorado_activities #coloradohiking #WomenWhoHike #ILoveMountains #mininghistory #Summitcounty #Bostonmine #sceniccolorado #wilderness #hikinglife

His sugar face makes me sad because it’s a constant reminder that he’s aging.  But that same sugar face makes me so happy and grateful because it’s a constant reminder of all the life we have lived together. Starsky is five and a half years older than when I adopted him, which means we have had five and a half years of love and growth and adventure.  We have really been through the wringer together and we have also had the most wonderful experiences.  I love this boy more than I can express, and I’m so grateful that the universe paired us up.  He’s the best partner I could have hoped for. … This is my entry for the #2020muttrukcrew.  There’s so many reasons I would love to be a part of the @muttruk team – female empowerment, a quality product, a fair and responsible influencer program.  But by far the biggest reason is that Muttruk created a product to inspire people to get outside and LIVE with their dogs.  They’ve remained committed to that mission.  And living and experiencing life together is what Starsky and I are constantly working toward and sharing here on Instagram.  I’d be honored to have the support of the Muttruk team in continuing to spread that message of love, partnership, and getting out there with your dog.

I started by going the wrong way. I was alone at 2am. I turned to look at the woods my headlamp reflected 4 sets of big eyes; my biggest fear. I started yelling but all they did was slowly follow me through the trees. Its bear country after all. So i turned my speaker on, grabbed my bear spray, adrenaline pumping i picked up pace. Bright jeep lights appeared behind me in the distance. Thank god i thought. They ended up driving the other direction. Fuck i said out loud and ended up back tracking 2 hours to the right trail. The eyes were gone, and I was pushing my time limit. Because of this when i got to conundrum peak and turned around the big rain cloud behind castle peak was moving in fast. . . This guy and i started running. We had to descend to the lake and fast. A rock gave out under me and i started sliding down the side of the mountain. Picking up speed i hit rocks at the bottom, there was no time for pain. I kept running through the snow slipping everywhere, exhausted, and in pain. I stopped to breath and blue flashes started popping followed by deafening thunder i jumped behind a rock. It started to down pour, the guy infront of me looking back to make sure i was ok witnessed the lightning strike the peak we were just on. The flash was so bright i couldnt see for a few seconds. I was fucking terrified. You would think, in a dangerous situation you would do whatever it takes to get away. . . Exhaustion kicks in and you start questioning if you are going to make it off. The anxiety kicks in and all you can do is get pummeled with rain, then hail, and snow. I remembered the blue flashes stopped for a few seconds and i started running again to catch up to the other guy and all you could smell was burning rock. I jumped onto the snow and started glissading down the slopes. When you pick up speed even on snow and hit a bump its probably the most uncomfortable feeling in the world and it hurts. For the next 3 hours we were jogging soaked and freezing down the side of a jeep trail. We made it. We shook hands and went on our way.
