From the Redwood Forest.... had a great hike in Big Basin state park. Gorgeous views, breathtaking redwoods, and virtually no other hikers. #redwoods #bigbasinstatepark #california #woah #thislandisyourland
I found these two little mushrooms on our hike while camping 🍄🍄 Here's a quote from Marcus Aurelius if you need a bit of inspo for this stressful finals week. " You have power over your mind-not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength.

Always good to spend a day in the forest away from the busyness of every day life
Many people think these books are just for kids. That is false!! Adults on camping trip enjoy learning about the ins and outs of consulting as well ;) in fact adults enjoy it more! . . Thank you so much @carriehfei @kenyonhan ! Looking fab ;) . . #worklifebalance #consulting #consultinglife #hiking #camping #bigbasinstatepark #mckinsey #holidaygifts #baby #babyshower #bain #mba #businessschool #outdoors
I am lucky enough to live where I am surrounded by five state parks, three county parks, and the endless trails of the mid- peninsula open space. That’s easily over 200,000 acres of trails to run. I am grateful to live among all this beauty in the redwoods. #bigbasinstatepark #castlerockstatepark #portolaredwoodsstatepark #butanostatepark #henrycowellstatepark #pescaderocountypark ##wilderranchstatepark ##memorialcountypark #henrycowellfallcreekunit #midpenos #santacruzmountains #trailrunning #runtrail #trailrun #trailrunninglife #runhappy #runnersofinstagram #bouldercreekca #wildernesspatrol #castateparkvolunteers #forestofnisenemarks #forestofnisenemarks #forestofnisenemarksstatepark #visitcalifornia
Met mother and father redwood today. Some of these redwoods in California are over 2500 years old #redwoods #californiaredwoods #redwoodstatepark #bigbasinstatepark
. . . . Memory of this day #exploring the beautiful #redwoods .🌲🌲🌲 I counted myself very lucky to be able to see and walk among these ancient gaint trees. It was like a dream.
Fresh air and mental clarity ✨☀️🌈🌎🌲 #redwoods #bigbasinstatepark #freshair #mentalclarity #mindbodysoul

Big Basin State Park with my favorite peeps today. It was a beautiful day for hiking. #bigbasinstatepark #redwoodforest #santacruzlife
A large part of life is appreciating the beauty in little things. # Big Basin State Park was an absolute joy to hike around, highly suggest checking it out 🤙 #naturephotography #hiking #outdoors #bigbasinstatepark #naturalbeauty #bethankful #behappybehealthy
Taking a break from fairs this weekend to spend some time with my parents in Santa Cruz! On a hike in Big Basin, we stopped to chat with the ranger and cozy up with this native (and harmless!) King snake! She was a sweetheart who cozied her way up my arm and shoulder eventually resting on my neck under my hair. I had no idea snakes can be so friendly! Usually if I see a snake on the trail, I run away in terror. When I was a kid growing up in Arizona, I stepped on (the same!) rattlesnake twice (in a row!) on the trail but luckily he was too sluggish to do anything about it. 😂 Apparently King Snakes EAT rattlesnakes for lunch. 😂 . . . Thank you to everyone who visited me at the IDEO Wunderfaire including @buffalotusk (and @mariasmphotography at SFETSY Fair!) With the release of my complete collection, its exciting to see people’s reactions and to be shipping prints out everyday! ♥️ I am feeling hella lucky these days to get to be a full time artist. . . . #californiakingsnake #kingsnake #kingsnakesofinstagram #californiakingsnakesofinstagram #bigbasin #bigbasinstatepark #waddell #waddellbeach #bigbasinredwoodsstatepark #ilovetheoutdoors

Driving into the Armstrong Redwood State reserve was one of the most incredible experience I’ve had in a very long time. Yes you know the trees are going to be big, but nothing can prepare you for just how big they really are. I felt so connected to my mother who had heaps and heaps of books on trees and she always told me about the magic of these living giants. A truly special moment I’ll carry with me forever. Thanx for the wheels @bertusvz and @belongwineco , that Jeep surely added to the adventure. | | | | | | | | | | | #rotorua #redwoodnationalpark #findyourpark #hike #bayarea #outdoors #getoutside #love #happy #canon #camping #mountains #portrait #picoftheday #art #pacificnorthwest #avenueofgiants #journey #summer #redwoodcoast #exploring #sustainability #autumn #neverstopexploring #bigbasinstatepark #skylinetothesea #naturelovers #yosemite #wildernessculture #jeepwrangler
Just how deep does the rabbit hole go ? Do you dare wonder just how far down you can find yourself? If you venture down into the rabbit hole and you’ll be in for a big surprise.. the only thing down in the rabbit hole today will surely lead to your demise .. for the only thing down in the rabbit hole today is a beast staring back at you thru your own eyes •🐰🕳• Have you found the bottom of the rabbit hole yet? If your searching for it; you’ll never find it. For the only way in is by mistake. ⏳🗝💕✨ || #redwoodforest #bigbasin #bigbasinstatepark #redwoodtree #rabbithole #california #californiaroadtrip #roadtrip #adventureawaits #wanderwithme #travelwithme #wanderlust #gypsy #natureporn #nature_sultans #nature_wizards #landscape_captures #landscape_hunter #treehugger #intothewoods #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalillnesssupport #bpdrecovery #weshouldsmoke #worldreefers #stayandwander #landscapeporn #fightinroundtheworld
The epic view of Waddell Beach from Mt McAbee Overlook in Big Basin. This, along with miles of squishy, damp trails, is why I love trail running here. #bigbasinstatepark #wildernesspatrol #waddellcreekbeach #californiastateparks #runcalifornia #visitcalifornia

“She was fierce, she was strong, she wasn’t simple. She was crazy and sometimes she barely slept. She always had something to say [...] And when she was down, she got right back up. She was a beast in her own way, but one idea described her best. She was unstoppable and took anything she wanted with a smile.” -r.m. drake
In my happy place ✌🏼 📸: @lindseygottardy

This is one of forty California Newts we saw last weekend at Big Basin as they made their journey to Waddell creek to lay eggs. This little one was a bit confused and hanging out on a tree instead. #califonianewt #bigbasinstatepark #newt #salamander
That winter mood. - Riding in redwoods is always beautiful. Just sometimes you stop to take the picture. . . - - - #redwoods #bigbasin #bigbasinstatepark #goneriding #green #visitsantacruz #santacruzmountains #sv650 #wetroads #roadslikethese
I miss living in Northern California as Redwoods like this are extremely hard to beat. The best kind of camping is being in solitude among the trees and rivers. Not pictured: rushing river behind my tent 🏕 • Worldly_AF Tip: GO AND BE IN NATURE! It’ll cure you of all ailments, I promise 😃 Who loves nature?? say I! 🙋🏻‍♀️ #savetheplanet Can’t wait to visit in <2 weeks! • • Follow for more travel tips & tricks! 😘

Waddell Creek Plein Air painting with the Los Gatos Art Association at Waddell Creek, Big Basin State Park. Perfect weather...a bit of a chilly wind but lots o’ layers makes it bearable! #pleinairpainting #santacruzartist #pleinair #bigbasinstatepark #originalart #norcal #waddellcreek #artistsoninstagram #oilpainting
I love to explore the beauty of nature #bigbasinstatepark #redwoodsnationalpark #california #tree
Explored 12 miles of trails in Big Basin. Thankful California is finally getting some rain. ☔️
MEMORIES FROM A SUMMER IN THE BACKCOUNTRY. 1st pic: This hunk of a man is best describe as an M&M. Hard on the outside, but soft and gooey inside. At first intimidating, but under the hardened exterior and disheveled appearance is a sweet baby face hispanic. Literally, this guy has a heart of gold. The type of person who can be serious and hardworking, but would give the shirt off his back to anyone needing it. The pic was taken at our favorite "pressure bathing"spot. 2nd pic: What happens when everyone is gone and 4 guys are left. A KP jam session. In the program when we didnt have the luxury of TV's and cellphones, most people turn to their musical talents for entertainment. Thankfully we had amazing musicians in our crew. This picture was taken by me and in it is the most talented and amazing musician/songwriter I have met @paul_the_human. Angel, our baby in the crew and @limonaid13 the hunk in the first pic. #KP ,#jamsession ,#musicians ,#guitars ,#backcountryexperience ,#trailcrew ,#singers ,#outdoors ,#nature ,#wilderness ,#summerofmylife ,#memories ,#bigbasinstatepark ,#inyonationalforest ,#longlake ,#pressurebathing ,#wanderers ,#explorers ,#discover .
Forcing ourselves to be happy isn’t genuine or fulfilling. The real work - and the real magic - lies in being honest about what we feel while remaining calm and aware. As human beings, we’re meant to feel the entire spectrum of emotions. The most peaceful individuals are those that choose positivity while simultaneously feeling every valley and crest in this roller coaster we’ve learned to call life. Finding inner peace doesn’t necessarily mean that you are free of hollow spaces or that life is always pleasant, but that no matter what happens, you trust yourself to persevere, that you have total confidence in your capability to confront life’s difficulties and ultimately overcome them.
130 miles, 14000 feet of climbing, and a 30 degree swing in temperature through the Santa Cruz Mountains. Hit some goals and tried out new roads in the process. While it wasn’t my longest ride, it was certainly the hardest, both mentally and physically. It was fun overall, but there was a solid 15 miles between Felton and the Highway 9/Highway 35 intersection that felt interminable. Lesson learned: study the routes in advance and memorize distances between key intersections. And make sure to know how much climbing will be involved! #cycling #santacruz #bigbasinstatepark #felton
It’s moments like this that I’ll remember later in life not all the small stupid stuff that happens from day to day and I try to constantly remind myself of this and learn not to stress so hard on the small things. #BerryCreekFalls #BigBasinStatePark #LoopTrail #Canon_Official #Urbex #6d #17mm #Hiking #Rain #Waterfalls #8Miles #WhichShotsBetter 🤔?
