I never get tired of driving in the Cariboo, there’s so much beauty to take in! Gimmeeee all thaaa views! 🙌🏼😍
J’irai bien faire un petit voyage
Dans un ᑎÉᑎᑌᑭᕼᗩᖇ! •
Apparently I panic and throw up peace signs when the camera’s on me 🌲✌🏼
I had no idea how much I needed to unplug, hike to waterfalls, sit by campfires, play with puppies...
Last minute we decide to stay one more night to extend it even more... I get to say YES because I started pursuing my current career path so I could create more options & more flexibility. Wasn’t always easy, but it’s been more than worth it 💞 #fightforyourdreams #abundanceproject
After 4 days of cold, rainy weather the sun came out and it was the most glorious evening! That sunshine made me so very happy.
Entrance to the private mineral pools... May 2019
📍Trilha Pico do Paraná, PR, Brasil
O Pico do Paraná é o ponto culminante do sul do Brasil, com seus 1877m, está localizado entre os municípios de Antonina e Campina Grande do Sul e faz parte do conjunto da Serra do Itabirique.
A trilha tem um total de cerca de 16km. Iniciamos a ascenção por volta das 9h30 da manhã de 13/7, a partir da Fazenda Rio das Pedras, onde o estacionamento custa R$ 10,00 e tem direito a banho no retorno da trilha. Registramos nossa subida no IAP e seguimos.
No início da trilha há um subidão pra aquecer as pernocas. Logo a frente passamos pela Pedra do Getúlio e Pedra do Grito. A trilha tem boa demarcação, onde as fitas brancas nos troncos das árvores indicam a trilha ao PP. É importante atenção e conhecimento, pois tem bifurcação sem placa indicativa.
Boa parte da trilha é feita sobre raízes de árvores, o que dificulta o trajeto com as cargueiras nas costas.
Encontramos 2 pontos de água ao longo da trilha. Iniciei a trilha com1,5 litros de água e foi suficiente.
Chegando ao primeiro ponto de camping, o A1, se tem uma visão perfeita do Pico do Paraná, União e Ibitirati. É uma formação rochosa lindíssima.
Após passar pelo A1 a dificuldade amlumenta. Iniciam as passagens por grampos e cordas. Para quem tem medo de altura e/ou pouca experiência com trekkings, com cargueira o desafio é grande. Uma das pessoas do meu grupo teve dificuldade e precisou que sua cargueira fosse carregada para que conseguisse avançar pelos grampos.
Chegamos ao segundo camping (A2) já no final da tarde e montamos as barracas.
As 4h30 da manhã do dia 14/07, partimos para o cume. Para atacar o cume é preciso passar por grampos que chegam a 90 graus e uma boa parte do caminho é sobre pedras. O cuidado deve ser redobrado para não errar e se perder em um precipício. Levamos 50 minutos a partir do A2 para alcançar o cume do PP. .

Columbus, Ohio ✔️ Ohio marks the 26th state I’ve been to in life, just over half way to seeing them all!
How many states have you explored
Let’s see who has been to the most! 🇺🇸 🗺
Saw lightnin’ ⚡️.....no really, there’s actually lightning 😅
I think it’s about time to go hiking up in the hills. It’s been to long.
I had the Great Falls of Tinker Creek all to myself during a recent trip to Cleveland! There are so many waterfalls in the area it was tough to choose which ones to go to.

A red dirt trail is calling my name
Every wondered how the surf was in Queenstown Check out this epic video of @redbullnz surfer @kehu_butler hitching a ride behind the world-famous @shotoverjetnz and surfing the ‘endless wave’ in the icy waters of the majestic Lake Wakatipu! 🏄🏻♂️🚤 #QueenstownLive

Survived Mt. Ugo with a certificate, bag tag and a t-shirt. Also with tortured ankles, both feet sprained, whole body in pain and some scratches but with new good friends & memories 🌲
Looking back on a hell of a week
Heading to a nighttime soak.
Experiences matter. Stuff doesn’t. I’ll be the first to admit it, I’m a sucker for new stuff. I love having clean crisp shoes, a tailored suit, fresh sunglasses, and every little gadget that comes out about 15 minutes after it hits the shelf but I find myself getting bored with the hoarding. Every time I see a sunrise in a new place, every time I sip coffee with a new view, every glass of wine I can’t pronounce, every hike and canoe trip, and freak rainstorm I’m struck with the reality that while most of our generation sits at the bottom of the trail taking the same Instagram image along side 1,000 tourists, while most of us have a wish list of wants that far exceeds our bank accounts, while most of us count our followers as friends, I’m hungry for the real. To hold Melissa’s hand on tiny cliff sides or white sand beaches, to make my boys giggle when the tickle monster comes to play, to shake as many hands at church on Sunday morning as I can, and to feel the bottom of my feet touch as many beautiful corners of the world as I can. That’s the good stuff. Spend two minutes watching the sunset some time. Watch the way people watch the world and try to see it differently. Look for a reflection or a corner that is just yours and then experience it. Silently let it change you and you’ll wake up tomorrow deeper, more wise, more beautiful and with a wealth of good stories to tell when you’re old and all your stuff has dust on it anyway.
Where in Canada haven’t you been that you wish you could go (taking money and travel costs out of the equation) For me, it’s Newfoundland during iceberg season! I want to get screeched in and hang out at a tiny little colourful house on the coastline.
I’ve been lucky enough to have checked a few new places off my list this year, but it’s a bummer how inaccessible travel within Canada can be. Hopefully that changes some day soon, because I am more inspired than ever to continue exploring my own giant backyard 🧡🤗

New home for August! It even weighs a couple ounces less than my quilt. #zpacksduplex
2007 GMC Yukon XL SUBOVERLAND 👍 We did this build a while back and really liked how it turned out. People always ask what sets us apart from the other conversion companies Our answer can come in many forms, but to put it simply, we build AFFORDABLE 4x4 Adventure Vehicles. SUBOVERLAND Vehicles range from $8,000-$18,000, depending on options and which model of base vehicle you want. Our most popular build comes in right around $13,000. In a market where 4x4 adventure rigs are $75k+, we are a good option for a large range of people. For more info on pricing, details and how to get on our waiting list DM, email or give us a call😁
on god my feet have never been so cold as they were wading through the Medano creek, which forms from alpine snowmelt for six weeks only. 10/10 would recommend the numb feet || great sand dunes 6.8
Both dying with the heat and trying to forget August is still to come 😅
