The ghost on the shore...
It’s been a while Insta. Cheers to 2019 ☕️ seeking joy in the present & purpose in each stage of this journey #thelandbetween
I want to climb this!
Snowball fights are a form of exercise 😉 go get outside! #OptOutside
Haven’t had time to create any bark pieces in awhile. I’m a little rusty drawing on them again but they still make me insanely happy (5.25 x 5.25 - round bark) ✌🏻🌎🌲 #climbon #happyweekend#staywild #optoutside #wildernessculture #wheresyourwilderness #gowhereyoudontbelong #intothewild #johnmuir #adventure #explore #positivevibes #travel #wild #woodworking #woodart #artist #illustration #irishkateart#kg #wanderlust #lessismuir #backcountry #gogetlost #tattoos

Suns out buns out! 😂😂😂
Such a magical forest ✨✨
When you turn the corner and this is your view 😍😍 happy hump day everyone!
*Not pictured: my feet dangling over the edge, per usual.....I’m not afraid. I runaway thinking it’s the only way I can truly breathe, feel something, anything....I think fear will be that something, but it’s not. I constantly find myself in a state of numbness. Despite finding the positive in almost every shitstorm, I remain numb....maybe it’s a rest from the usual fight or flight I’ve dealt with for so long, or perhaps it’s the surge of overwhelming emotions colliding into an inevitable pause....nonetheless, you’ll find me on the edge, looking down, admiring the view, unafraid, finally able to breathe.... . . . . #sheisnotlost #wondermore #collectivelycreate #exploretocreate #pnwcreatives #pnwcollective #wildernessculture #lessismuir #neverstopexploring #thegreatoutdoors #lifeofadventure #adventurethatislife #takemoreadventures #sheexplores #thenwadventure #liveyouradventure #getoutstayout #modernoutdoors #staypnw #wanderfolk #thatpnwlife #wanderwashington #adventureculture #dametraveler #wanderfolk #goatworthy #moodnation #pnwdiscovered #adventureawaits
Hi, sun in my eyes Utah winter is rad but These babes are the prize 🎖
I love sun rays! 🤗
Sometimes getting an early start has its perks 🤗
Wind, water, and sand Can very slowly create Geologic art
Dear outdoor community: while I appreciate efforts from @thenorthface and @burtsbees to protect our resources, what we really need right now is a paycheck. My dad, an essential employee, has been working for a month now without his regular pay. I also know there is a call from a #conservation league to shut down all parks until they can be properly staffed. A great idea except many parks don’t have gates. Please encourage your policy makers to end the #governmentshutdown . I know it’s hard for everyone to understand what this is like to be part of a family who all of a sudden has no income. But it’s no fun! #governmentshutdown #shutdownstory #shutdownstories
Someone was definitely smoking weed inside this hut 😳
These towers of mud Are especially awesome When sprinkled with snow
Wild West in Winter
Just a reminder that your litter never goes away... #leavenotrace
These foggy forests hold a special place in my heart.
To borrow a bit from John Muir: Of all the paths you take in life make sure you hit them single tracks! I didn't have time for my 16 mile run before work, so instead I did 12.5 with 3200 gain. Vert, dirt, and hurt! You know I took that little trail on the left #xterrarun #xterrasocal #onetribe #heartrunners #santamonicamountains #lessisMuir #california #singletrack #lasthorserunners
How do you love getting active outdoors during the winter months? #OptOutside
I just love stormy scenes. The contrast between the clouds and the golden sun hitting the field was such a spectacular moment. Right before I’d gotten to Rice Field Shelter, I was hiking up the mountain as it poured down on us. My knee was in severe pain... as was my mental health; I knew my time in the trail was slowly coming to an end (due to injury). I’d almost left Pearisburg in a rental car due to my leg. Somehow I grabbed onto a little energy to keep going, but this was one of the first times on trail I had to realistically think of my options to leave the AT and get medical attention. Even though this hike was hard, man was this shelter worth that extra bit of pain! I ended up making McAfee Knob my “terminus” for the hike, and hiked to Daleville, VA to call my parents with the news I’d be ending it to get rest, see a doctor, and try to get back in within the next month. Of course, that never happened because my injury was beyond self repair, requiring surgery. I’m stoked to get back here now that I’m recovered! Maybe this year?! Yes, yes... I believe so...
Mount Rainier is absolutely stunning! Also, I took this photo out the windshield of a moving car so.. not my best work lol but it was lovely!

Hi all! So I’ve felt there was something fishy going on for months but it wasn’t until I saw @1924us acknowledge that the @instagram algorithm has stopped showing our my work (and vice versa) it frustrates me but I’m hoping this will help. So please comment below and then go kiss your dog! ✌🏻🌎♥️🐶 #notcoolbro #share#staywild #optoutside #wildernessculture #wheresyourwilderness #gowhereyoudontbelong #intothewild #johnmuir #adventure #explore #positivevibes #travel #wild #woodworking #woodart #artist #illustration #irishkateart#kg #wanderlust #lessismuir #backcountry #gogetlost #tattoos
Night #climbing - I love finding @luckeyclimbers everywhere I go!
The shock of the real. For a little while we are again able to see, as the child sees, a world of marvels. For a few moments we discover that nothing can be taken for granted, for if this ring of stone is marvelous then all which shaped it is marvelous, and our journey here on earth, able to see and touch and hear in the midst of tangible and mysterious things-in-themselves, is the most strange and daring of all adventures. - Edward Abbey

Tomorrow we leave for a long weekend adventure up in Washington! I can’t wait!!
The only good thing about this hike was that the sun was out! Lol 😆
This is what I want to do to today... tell it to peace out lol 👋
It’s been super hard to find #playgrounds on #oahu , but our last day here we found this gem!
There’s still beauty up here, it’s just a different type of beauty.
This life we live. I live a wonderful life, a really truly wonderful life. And I don’t say that to brag or anything, but rather, I say that as a reminder to myself when anxiety hits. Yes, there are those things. There will always be those things. The anxiety, fear, and pain filled. The moments I hop in the shower just so I can cry things out without an explanation to follow. There are those moments when the memory of being unable to control my hands, upper body, and voice, paralyze me, doing everything in their power to push me back into the “safe zone,” otherwise, I’m once again, going to be checking into the ER for this, that, or the other unexplainable thing. Yes, there are those things. There will always be those things. But there will also be so much joy in between. Travel, curiosity, and community. The writing of a book, the re-discovering of a voice, and so much more. I can, more often than I’d like to admit, lose sight of this. Of all that I do have and all that I already am. I have a meal every night, a brother to call when I panic, a community to be my “why” behind showing up each day, a difficult but wonderful dog that challenges me daily, a cousin to get creative or watch cheesy movies with, a computer to work at home from, and a boyfriend that reminds me of my strengths when all I can see are my weaknesses. I don’t know what will happen or how things will end up, but I do know that I’ll be ok if it all breaks down, and that is truly an incredible gift. That said, don’t you dare beat yourself up when a day ahead is so impossible you can’t even begin to imagine how you’ll make it through, but do take a moment, if not during, then after, to remind yourself of all that’s here. Of all that you’ve done, your accomplishments and obstacles worked through. Trusting in yourself enough that you can once again believe that you’ll make it through. Anyways, these were my thoughts as I hit un-groomed trails on skate skis, for the first time. Falling more times than I can count, being overly dramatic, feeling incredibly sorry for myself at some points, but deciding to show up anyway, reminding myself that I’ve got it pretty good most days #morethanlyme

I’m not even sure what this little waterfall is called but it’s worth the sketchy trail down to it!
Let’s go TEXANS!!! Beat the Colts!!! 🏈🏈🏈
Walking through the burned area gave me such a creepy feeling. It was cold and quiet, except for the wind howling through the dead trees. I’m happy to see some new growth but sad to see so many trees perished.
“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”
