The view from the bottom

It was so nice to finally get away to camp in the backcountry. It’s been far too long. I had the chance this past weekend to visit one of my favorite places. From where we were, you could see the tip of one of the highest peaks in the park. The peak certainly wasn’t climbed… Continue reading The view from the bottom

My Invisible Illness

I’ve written about the outdoors and it’s benefits to people from all walks of life. I’ve written about my love for including people with disabilities in outdoor activities. I’ve written about being authentic, yet I’m not sure I have been. I know I’ve alluded to my own disability, but I haven’t really written about it… Continue reading My Invisible Illness

I didn’t realize that how I was feeling was connected, but when I finally got checked out, it turns out that I’m healing from… Continue reading Self care

I don’t have many pics of that because I came super late and it was so… Continue reading Hands Across the Water

Depression and Social Media

A friend of mine shared a very poignant video with me this morning. It’s a smidge long, but I felt compelled to watch it in its entirety once he started speaking. I’ve alluded to how I feel about this before, but I’m starting to think my focus on the blog was not what I’d originally… Continue reading Depression and Social Media
