The walk from Riverton to Colac Bay was beautiful. We hopped on and off beaches and pastures. One thing we noticed quickly was sheep didn't like being near us and cows wanted to get closer. #pastureland . . . . #teararoanobo #naturefirst #takelessdomore #astralfootwear #lightheartgear #rei1440project #optoutside #teararoa2018 #force #ineverypark #trampingnz #newzealand #nzmustdo #trekking #hikingblog #travelblog #gossamergear

Fin...a wonderful hike from the Salton Sea to the Pacific, what a great way to start off 2018 spending a week walking 153 miles or so with good friends. Looking forward to what other adventures lie ahead for me this year. #sandiegotranscountytrail #hiking #adventures #thruhiking #WeKeepYouOutdoors #point6socks #takelessdomore #montbell #RoamTheEarth #backpackerspantry #ourchefyouradventure #PurpleRainSkirts #Leki #KatabaticGear #ToaksOutdoors

Entering cactus zone! Today we've walked through a bit of history past old mines and Native American paths. It feels like a special place. The big sky of the desert, dark nights, and bright stars are a highlight of the Trans San Diego so far! / Photo by @lint_hikes #sandiegocounty #hiking #backpacking #desert #anzaborrego #winterhiking #cactus #takelessdomore

From Queenstown we had to find a way around the lake. To make the logistics cheaper and easier, we chose to hitchhike to the Routeburn Track. This is not part of the Te Araroa but it is one of NZ great walks. It was stunning, added two days to our hike, but well worth it! #routeburntrackinaday #yolandathetent #hikesimply #yamamountaingear #newzealand #greatwalknz #tramping #hiking #thruhiking #sidetrip #camping #mountains #stunning #lakes #lovenature #getoutside #dostuff @outdoorexploreteam #outthedoorexplore #harrithepack #whereverlitetakesyou #garythepack #takelessdomore

An older picture but perfectly describes his reaction to letting his sick sister use his spare blanket. He didn't love it when I told him he should be glad that he had something in his inventory that could help someone in need. #takelessdomore

Photography was never my thing. I didn’t even carry a camera for the majority of my hikes, since photos weren’t able to capture the beauty I saw, or the raw emotions I felt. Most of the photos I have were taken by others I met along the way. ••• Recently I picked up one of those fancy GoPro cameras, and last night discovered there was a setting specifically for nighttime photos. ••• #thruhike #hikertrash #sandiego #mynextadventure #skoutbackcountry #takelessdomore #embracethespace #mountainlaureldesigns #ultralightbackpacking #winterhiking

We met our first other thru-tramper today. Sebastian was very giggly and talkative SOBO. We bonded over carrying umbrellas and our Gossamer Gear packs.. . . . . #teararoanobo #naturefirst #takelessdomore #astralfootwear #lightheartgear #rei1440project #optoutside #teararoa2018 #forceofnature #ineverypark #trampingnz #newzealand #nzmustdo #trekking #hikingblog #travelblog #thruhike #thruhikers

We had a lovely beach walk along Oreti Beach! We crossed the stream right about low tide. Three people were out training their trotting horses which took advantage of the compacted sand below the high tide line.. . . . . . #teararoanobo #naturefirst #takelessdomore #astralfootwear #lightheartgear #rei1440project #optoutside #teararoa2018 #forceofnature #ineverypark #trampingnz #newzealand #nzmustdo #trekking #hikingblog #travelblog

"I look forward to a day when hikers care less about how much the food they're carrying weighs, and more about its effects on their body and the environment to produce." - Aria Zoner. What are you willing to stand up and speak for? When it comes to choosing lightweight calories over foods that contain nutrition, I've got a lot to say on this subject. #wholefoodhiker #healthsovereignty #takelessdomore #montgomerypeak #foodactivist #foodrevolution #mlkday #healthsovereignindividual #foodasmedicine #foodforbackpacking #trailchat #nutrition #superfoodhiker #choosehealthy #getoutmor

Good morning, Invercargill! We started at 5AM just now. We have to make it to a stream ford on Oreti Beach. We are grateful for the cool breeze and the peeps of the shore birds as we walk along a levee/stopbank. #tea#teararoa2018 . . . . #teararoanobo #naturefirst #earlybirdgetstheworm #takelessdomore #astralfootwear #lightheartgear #rei1440project #optoutside #teararoa2018 #forceofnature

GOODBYE, WHIDBEY ISLAND! We're repatriating to the Okanogan Highlands for the winter. It's been a Blessing getting to know and enjoy the numerous trail systems on the island, but it will be a Blessing as well for us to return home to the highlands. Kathy and I are looking forward to an intensive few months of focused training and writing before we return to the coast for Ultra April and then hit the trail in May. What a Blessing to be Alive! Give Thanks for Life! #509strong #AdventureEveryday

Aug 23, Day 3! I was on trail around 6:30am, just a bit after sunrise, to start the final climb up Whitney. This is 3 hours in, about 2.5 miles and 2000 feet from Guitar Lake on the right where I left most of my gear. . . . . . #allwomenalltrails #johnmuirtrail #jmt2017 #highsierra #sectionhike #california #nobo #optoutside #outdoorlife #nature #earthporn #backpacking #hiking #inspire #inspiration #adventure #rei1440project #takelessdomore #gossamergear #goplayoutside #keepitwild #trailchat #exploremore #womenwhohike #hikertrash #beautiful #nomeatathlete #womenwhoexplore #thetrek

Last year was challenging, but had it’s sublime moments. Can’t wait for more adventures in 2018.

Since moving Eivin & Eve from Pittsburgh to Chattanooga they’ve transitioned from indoor/outdoor to mostly indoor kits. Today Miss Eve got to explore the great outdoors and I cracked up watching this happen 😂

Shorter winter daylight hours mean starting before dawn and traveling well into the dark if you wanna hike 25 mile days. I love keeping these hours, since we get to watch each new dawn and blazing sunset. Southern California is the place to be for winter hiking. #hikertrash #ultralightbackpacking #southerncalifornia #takelessdomore #embracethespace #mynextadventure #skoutbackcountry #sober #livingthedream #publiclands

Another picture from the Scottish Highlands. This was day 2 of my trip, right after I had left the Spittal of Glenmuick area. Even though I had seen pictures (and had been to the Highlands before), this surpassed all my expectations in terms of scenery and riding quality. Cairngorms National Park was quite something. More pics coming.

Sometimes the best way to stand up for our public lands is to go see them for yourself.

This was the day (week) I kept falling down. Cuts and gashes. Bruises. A sore knee. A sore lower back. A scary accidental glissade. . How cool is it that we can just pop over to California and slip and slide around? And hike? And bag peaks? And be dirty and sore and filled with endorphins? And enjoy life? If you think about it, it's really a very new concept, females enjoying free and wild lives. Let's make it a tradition.
