Things learned in snow: • Snow mode is safe, and cautious and limits power, which is sometimes good, and sometimes bad. But for people lookin to to safety get places, it’s gold. •Mud mode is a good balance of traction and tire spin, for times when keeping the momentum going is preferred, even at the cost of some sliding. •Sand mode is just down right fun. Perfect for drifting and wreckless life choices. . . . #hondaridgeline #ridgelineownersclub #ridgeline #honda #jsport #jsporthonda #gazelletents #dollysodswilderness #dollysods #fr75

Definitely pushing my limits this weekend, but it’s important to realize where your limits end and things become more risk than reward! After getting stopped but a high flowing river and a freezing cold night in a non waterproof tent in the rain, the risk was way higher than the reward! But it’s always good to test equipment!! . . . . #dollysodswilderness #westvirginia #wildwonderfulwestvirginia #snow #cold #wetassfuck #wokeupfrozen #activelife #limits #pushyourself

The Fog had finally burned off at the Dolly Sods Bear Rocks in West Virginia that day.

My last ode to a fall I never got out and photographed this year. This shot is from several falls ago at my beloved Dolly Sods.

My great great great uncle Jeff worked for the forest service at this tower, tasked to keep an eye on the land that everyone holds near to their hearts. One day, Jeff's boss went to the tower to see how he was doing. He was absent. Now some context. Back in these days, you had to connect phone lines from building to building. So there was a line going to the tower from the Station and then a line going to Jeff's house. Well Jeff's boss went ahead and gave him a call... "THIS IS JEFF UP IN THE TOWEE." "Jeff, the hell you are. I'm in the tower now." "NO YOU AIN'T." Turns out Jeff was at home with one of his girlfriends. Jeff got fired. The end. . . . . . . . . . #dollysodswilderness #crazyunclejeff #moutainmama #wv #nationalforest

This photo was taken in October at the end of a 3 day backpacking trip I took with my friends Brendan McCarthy @bmccar1075 and Tom Schaeffer. This was our third trip to the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area in West Viriginia. We had one cold but clear day, one beautiful day, and a pretty wet last day. All in all, not too bad for a trip to the Sods. Nothing I have ever done is more humbling or illuminating, and nothing will ever make you more aware, appreciative, and grateful for your blessings than camping out in the wilderness. I have learned a lot along the way, but still have so, so much to learn, in all regards. We captured this moment at Bear Rock, normally a cliff area with a beautiful and expansive vista out into the valley below. The fog was so thick, though, you might not even know from these photos. The steamy horizon took on the visual of a vast sea of qi, and I decided to pause and simply breathe it all in. I will be teaching a special Qi Flow Pop-Up class this Saturday, November 16th, from 2:30-3:30, at Yogaworks Severna Park @yogaworks_baltimore. We will combine elements of both vinyasa yoga and qigong, leading to a meditative and calming, yet still movement-based and active experience. Come settle your mind, invigorate your body, and enjoy a fun flow on a Saturday afternoon. Thanks to Brendan for taking this photo at the very end of our trip. Brendan has taught me so much about the outdoors, in addition to so many other things. He was also my training/sparring partner in college at Towson @towsonuniversity. Along with our friend, Eagle Scout outdoorsman extraordinaire, Tom Schaeffer, Brendan literally keeps me alive while out there. Respect to these two gentlemen for their excellence and survival knowledge. #qigong #qi #somuchqi #breath #breatheitin #nature #getbarefoot #barefootoutside #dollysods #dollysodswilderness #backpacking #foggyday #mountainview

Dolly Sods, WV was a sweet surprise of a place. We took a short hike trying to find the blueberry bushes turning color for the fall. We didn’t find the berry bushes but I did feel like I was in a “Honey I shrunk the kids” scene for a sec. This hike was through a thick forest with lots overgrown roots and rock beds in the path. The trail super soft from all the pine needles that dropped over the years. It felt like another world. Can’t wait to go back!
