Sometimes the pain and struggle leads you to beauty. —- Dan and I hiked 11 miles this weekend in below freezing temps to reach this view. —- What you don’t realize is that we’re in fact standing on a frozen lake that’s covered in snow. Surreal doesn’t even begin to capture this moment. —- What makes this hike even more special is that we had this lake all to ourselves. We only saw 5 people on the trail the whole day. I guess most people wouldn’t want to hike in freezing temperatures, in a foot of snow, with lots of ice. —- WORTH IT —- Big Pine Lakes, you’re a gem 💙 + + + + + #wondermore #wheretofindme #youmustsee #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #citizenfemme #darlingescapes #globelletravels #wearetravelgirls #womenwhoexplore #exploretocreate #athomeintheworld #optoutside #getoutstayout #outdoorwomen #liveauthentic #wildme #livefolk #goxplr #adventureanywhere #sheexplores #mountaingirls #sourcedadventures #wonderfuldestinations #beautifuldestinations #sidewalkerdaily #bigpinelakes #traveltagged #viewsfromcali #naturalcalifornia

No better way to relax after a snowy day than a soak in the hot springs 💙

Does anyone remember “Honesty Box?” It was a messaging box that, for whatever reason, we would put on our Facebook pages in high school and anyone could anonymously write anything to us. Super good times. Anyway, one time I remember one of my girlfriends wrote, “This girl has no sex appeal and I don’t know why any guy would be attracted to her.” And I remember being a fairly confident/self-aware teen thinking, “Dear sweet Jesus, I’m only 15, I certainly hope I don’t have any sex appeal!” Ugly duckling as I may have been, I owe the development of any sense of humor I have to the people who focus their energy on tearing others down. So today’s Instagram post is a reminder that when people put themselves out there, be kind to them. No one’s ever “asking for it.” But thank you to that girl for giving me some fun caption material nearly a decade later:) It’s not anonymous, but this is me, a fully-fledged duck–– ask me anything in the comments!

A nice, simple shot of @lksmvn standing along the rocky shore and marveling at the amazing texture of the water and sky. Always a great time exploring around Anacortes on a sunny day!

Need two of me for double protection against the large quantity of venomous snakes slithering among these glades. @thedougmichaels and I ran into a nice coral snake along the path of our first hike today 🐍. #neverstopexploring @evergladesnps

Last year, I experienced my first “preventable” injury caused by running. I couldn’t run (or walk properly) for months as a result and I felt pretty dumb for needlessly pushing myself to the point of injury. I’m trying to be more receptive to my body’s needs - including rest - going into this season. Part of my plan is to strive for a more balanced routine that incorporates diverse cross-training. To any runners out there: what’s your favourite activity that complements running? // 📸 @suesitkiphoto

We were laid low by illness last weekend, so there was no hiking. In between naps and coughing fits I made a great production of moping and feeling sorry for myself. Here's hoping we get back on the trail this weekend, not sure we'll survive another one cooped up inside! #trailtuesday #womenwhohike #mtnchicks #52HikeChallenge #52HikeChallenge2018

depression is a weird struggle. this week has been rough, for no reason at all. so, when i try to explain that i’m stressed it’s hard to convey and even harder to understand if you’ve never felt the overwhelming anxiety of nothingness. i haven’t been able to climb because broken foot, yoga is limited to very moderate yin, and i have so much excitement happening in life i have an abundance of energy that needs to be burned. thank you, to everyone who has messaged me encouraging me, and for being so open with your own struggles, it’s truly rare that you become vulnerable on the internet and people flock to your rescue instead of with pitch forks at hand. thanks for being rad, insta. xoxo💋 PC // @chloemcandrew @allisonensign
