Ya’ll today the mountain won and that’s ok. White out conditions combined with being pelted with freezing rain and snow and our nubie snow caving status sadly equals no caves this time. 😢 We’ll come back another day to conquer Artist Point and find a safer opportunity to sleep in the snow. 😴❄️ The good news is I got to meet and go on an adventure with some badass women and I’ve still got two days left in my weekend! ✨ . . . #artistpoint #whiteout #blizzard #snowcamping #snowcave #mountbaker #mtbaker #snowshoeing #winterwonderland #hikingadventures #pnwlife #mypnwlife #ourpnw #herpnwlife #pnwoutdoorwomen #pnwow #pnwonderland #pnwoutdoors #pnwwilderness #choosemountains #climbanotherday #adventurelife #optoutside #snowday #sheadventures #sheexplores #crazyadventures #nationalforest #outdoorslife

Every different level of your life will demand a new you •••••••••••••••••••••• You ever notice when you try to do something new and you’re reaching out of your comfort zone to do it all of a sudden, S*** starts flying your way trying to stop you from achieving any amount of success and push you back into your “safe” comfortable old habits. I notice it all the time! I have learned to recognize it and accept it as a challenge so yell out ‘touché” to the universe and keep trucking forward because I WILL NOT stand for anything less than extraordinary and nor should you! • SO, those days where you feel like everything is against you PUSH though, it’s creating your future success testimony to share with the world. I mean just think about it… if everything went smoothly all the time, life would be BORING! •••••••••••••••••••••• I would love to hear some of your stories where s*** just isn’t going your way!

One time I was in a forest. Enveloped in a complex system of systems all communicating at low frequencies and through chemical releases. If a man passes through a forest without axe or saw, do the trees take note? #forest #coniferous #nature #outdoors #nationalforest

Missing the views from El Yunque🌴 El Yunque National Forest, Puerto Rico: Clouds usually hang around the top of El Yunque, but on this clear day, we could see all the way to the U.S. Virgin Islands. We can’t wait to go back to Puerto Rico, even if it doesn’t look quite like this after Hurricane Maria. Did you know El Yunque is the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System AND it has no mosquitos?!? Reopened to visitors on February 16 – go see the slow but beautiful recovery! . . . . . . . . #elyunque #elyunquerainforest #elyunquenationalforest #puertorico #unidosporpuertorico #rainforest #tropicalrainforest #forest #viewfromthetop #island #islandlife #hiking #caribbean #instatravel #travelgram #isladelencanto #nationalforest

It’s been a busy week on the district! Pack tests, prescribed burns, trail maintenance and education! Outdoor Adventure Kids (OAK) is back in full swing. Pictured is CMS 8th grade enjoying their outdoor classroom. This year, we created concept days that focus on Oakmulgee’s management fields. Thursday, our curriculum was focused around timber management. Up next is wildlife! HUGE THANK YOU to our volunteers/educators that make our world go round. We couldn’t do it without ya!

But Samantha, what do you actually do? •••••••••••••••••••••• I get a lot of messages asking what it is I do for work and how am I able to travel the world whenever I want. • Well, I came across this opportunity not too long ago. It screamed exactly what I was searching for… more time freedom to do more the things I love! • I dove in head first and started building my business around my passions (travel, photography and inspiring others) that allows me to earn an income just by posting to IG each day. The beautiful thing was that I didn’t have to do this on my own I had 6-7 figure earner coach’s that held my hand to help me get started + a community of like-minded people crushing it earning 6-figures that are there for you every step of the way (which is my fav part). • Since I have gotten over 100 messages I am going to give this same opportunity that I was given for FREE to the next 10 people that sign up in the next 24hrs! All you have to do is click the link in my bio and I explain the rest from there! • SO, if you’re tired of working a 9-5 job, giving your time away, only taking 2 vacations a year (and need permission to do so), not able to do the things you enjoy doing, love earning a great income then I promise you that this WILL change your life just as it did mine and 1,000s of others! •••••••••••••••••••••• Click the link in my bio and I will see you on the inside! Cheers to your success! . . . . #womenwhoexplore #liveyouradventure #findyourpark #goparks #goproselfie #nationalforest #gopronation #liveauthentically #explorers #andshesdopetoo

The mountains are always teaching me something. Yesterday I was riding up a chair lift and the mountain was empty and I looked up beneath the shadows of the cascades and I saw all the valleys. Normally I gasp and wonder at the gnarly peaks, at the sun tipped sharp shapes that create the silhouettes of the mountains we love and know so well. But rarely do I take the time to notice the valleys. The jagged rocks. The darker places. Of any mountain. But those valleys and steep faces that sink down into a dark crack or rock formation are apart of that mountain I so adore too. In fact, all those parts I’m not looking at, are the very foundation of the peaks, the high points. Mountains are beautiful because they are weathered and jagged, perfectly unsymmetrical, perfectly huge and gnarly and sharp. And I love those mountains just the same. See, the mountains are always teaching me something. So as I sat on the chair at the end of the day, I noticed the valleys and I thought of my own. My own dark places, the things I try to hide, the unkind words I’ve said or felt. The valley-moments of my life that I’m not so proud of, but they also make up me. I want to celebrate my mountains, jagged rocks and all. And be grateful. For the beauty of the mountains comes with time. With weathering. With wind and storms and sunny days too. So wherever you are on your mountain, whether you’re on the summit of your peak or the start of a climb in a valley, it’s all apart of the process, the adventure, the journey. And it’s all beautiful, jaw dropping, cracks, valleys, peaks and all.

If you know me you know I drink more coffee in a day than I do water. Well I just found my new obsession @beardedmancoffee. Not only is the coffee amazing but with every bag purchased $5 is donated to the National Forest Foundation! For every $1 donated, the NFF will plant a tree. So what’s better than a fresh cup of quality coffee in the morning and knowing your money will ensure that every generation will get the chance to experience the majestic awes of nature. #beardedmancoffee #getbearded #cof#coffee #coffee #localcoffee #localbrew #denver #denvercoffee #showlove #spreadlove #compassionateliving #vegan #savetheforests #savetheplanet #cleaneating #cleanliving #nationalforest #nationalforestfoundation #colorado #coloradoliving #coffeelover #sup#supportlocalbusiness #supportlocal

Hardship. Climbing up those mountains, trudging through the snow, and pushing my capabilities is not always the easiest thing. Type two fun is what some may call it. But nature is brutal and makes us work for its views. Many a time, though, I have reached the top of a mountain only to be greeted with a sight denying fog. I have learned that we do not challenge ourselves for extrinsic rewards, but the journey of hardship itself truly is the most beautiful reward. - @lisa_depledge (2/2) . . .
