I don’t think red squirrels get enough love in the world. We are leaving our cozy little 300-square foot cabin in the woods to go traveling indefinitely. This means saying goodbye to the red squirrel who has been living in the abandoned shed beside our outhouse. We have become friends with the squirrel whose territory our cabin sits on and have been watching his antics. He has entertained us with his chittering, mushroom drying, cone collecting and his territorial disputes with neighbouring squirrels. The only time we find fault with him is in the fall when he develops a desire for our cabin insulation. Instead of killing him like so many people would do we scrounge up scrap pieces of insulation and leave it on our deck. His excitement when he stumbles upon it is obvious. It’s a win-win situation for both of us. He still gets a cozy home for winter and our cabin keeps its warmth. He has been a good friend and we’re going to miss him.

Some days are literally just more difficult then others. Frustrations come up. People fail us. Unexpected things happen. Shocking things occur. What I like to do is control as much as I can. So for me that includes my morning routine; what I put in my body; the exercises I do when I wake up; and what I think about throughout the day. And sometimes I just need to straight up imagine being somewhere else. Like this sweet morning waking up to this lakeside view in Arizona. Yea. Sometimes I just do that 👌

Lofoten is a fairy tale world with natural surroundings that are unparalleled anywhere else in the world. In March, 1941 the islands were raided by British Commandos during Operation Claymore, and in a subsequent diversionary attack to support the Vaagso raid in December. ⛰
Rounding a bend and seeing El Capitan looming massively during golden hour is something I’ll never forget. It was one of those times when a mountain actually took my breath away, and we all started screaming and looking for a place to pull over just to gawk at it. The sheer magnitude of the rock face hiding behind an ancient forest was mind blowing, and the next time I go to @yosemitenps
I’m definitely going to need more time. ⛺️
A majestic encounter in the middle of nature.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” — Eleanor Roosevelt.
Double tap if you agree.

According to @plasticoceans
, there are over 8 MILLION TONS of plastic waste entering our oceans EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Don’t let our ignorance destroys our planet.

Thinking about how long this last winter seemed. I stayed focused on working hard and didn't leave much room for adventuring and exploring. I'm definitely going to make it a point to get out and experience more of what I love this year- the outdoors.

A little hike to see this beautiful scenery. 🐍🦎🌎
This weekend, I was the happiest of campers because the air quality improved so much, and Rene and I were able to head up to Yosemite and Mammoth to celebrate my birthday. Two weeks ago, we left on a trip trough the Eastern Sierra—only to find that the smoke from the regional wildfires made its way to Yosemite’s High Country, Mono County, and through Inyo County. After camping out in smoky conditions for a night, we decided to end that trip early. That trip served as a reminder that we can't take the time we have for granted--that something as routine as going outdoors is being threatened by increasing wildfires as a result of climate change and how important it is to do our part to reduce climate change. Utilize sunlight to conserve energy at home & work, reduce/reuse/recycle, carpool/bike when possible, plant trees (it's great for the environment and fun!), get involved in your community, and the list goes on! With collective effort, we can mitigate climate change and protect our public lands. #yosemite #protectpubliclands
Love this qoute!
The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. “You may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. You may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate, nor establish love. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” —Martin Luther King, Jr.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.
