For the past week I've been chauffeur, tour guide, concierge, barista, and mediator for my lovely family visiting from sea level. It's always such a pleasure to see them leave. Bon Voyage! πŸŽ‰ . . . #wildernessculture #campvibes #exploremore #stayandwanderΒ #goexplore #coloradosummers #coloradovibes #staywild #getoutdoors #americanfolk #coloradowild #colorado #simplyadventure #coloradowildlife

Favorite hike..ever? Probably.. I couldn't stop smiling, until I decided to add a second destination that turned a 7 mile hike into a 13.5 mile hike and I ran out of snacks!! Definitely plan on getting back out soon to chase some more wildflowers. What's the #1 hike on your Summer Adventure List? Don't have one, get one!! πŸ“Έ@whimsy_wilderness . . . #wildernessculture #amongthewild #lifeofadventure #liveoutdoors #wearethewild #exploremore #stayandwander #goexplore #coloradosummers #coloradovibes #colorado2017 #lovelifeoutside #staywild #getoutdoors #americanfolk #coloradowild #keepitwild #colorado #simplyadventure #lifeofadventure #coloradowildlife #exploremore #stayandwander #liveferel #feraldenver #lovelifeoutside #staywild #americanfolk

This pic kinda sums up how I've been feeling lately. I know I've shared some of my tough times on here, I figure it's only fair I shared this. Recently..the past few weeks I guess, maybe more, for no particular reason..I've been feeling pretty good. Like the tide is changing. Like I'm walking in the sun...and it feels good. Darn good. When it's storming outside, no need in lying to yourself and saying it's not. But, when the sun is shining, you best get out amongst it and soak it up. πŸ’œ πŸ’œ πŸ’œ #coloradohikes #wehike #mountainlife #wildernessculture #goexplore #optoutside #liveoutdoors #exploremore #viewcolorado

🎡🎡Have you ever been down to Colorado? I spend a lot of time there in my mind. And if God doesn't live in Colo-rado, I'll bet that's where he spends most of his time. I'd love to be there watching, early in the morning, The sun comes up and crowns the mountain king. If by chance you dare to be there, high upon the mountain, I swear that you can hear the angels sing. - Merle Haggard🎡🎡 πŸ“Έ@jojulia * * * #greatnorthcollective #campvibes #wildernessculture #optoutside #hikingadventures #choosemountains #rei1440project #colorado #folkportraits

Got out today for a bit to play with one of my Christmas gifts from @jmart_5280 and @mrslmart. Thanks guys! I didn't even know this was a thing. Did you??..When I saw pics of them I just thought it was an app or something. πŸ˜„ Turns out it's a legit ball of glass that weighs like 2lbs...at least it feels like it does. πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ. . . . #keepitwild #colorado #optoutside #wildernessculture #choosemountains #goexplore #staywild #getoutdoors #mountainlife

After working 7 days straight, I just wanted to sit on the couch and catch up on Below Deck and Million Dollar Listing....Instead, I got out & ended up here. I guess that's just a decision I'm going to have to live with. . . . . . #optoutside #coloradountamed #liveferal #coloradolive #choosemountains #coloradohikes #feraldenver #neverstopexploring #wildernessculture #coloradohikes #wehike #hikecolorado #wildernessculture #liveoutdoors #exploremore #stayandwander #goexplore #staywild #getoutdoors #coloradocollective #viewcolorado #mountainlife #naturalcolorado #viewsfromcolorado #outtherecolorado #wehike #amongthewild #nps

I've yet to hike a 14er. I don't ski or snowboard. On some days off, just finding the motivation to walk to the mailbox could be considered a win. Looking back, I now realize I've been dealing with depression on and off since college. But, 3 years ago when my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer, it came on stronger than ever. I've been learning how to deal with it ever since. Recently a journalist I like put it this way - "My goal is to exercise enough to stave off depression and don't get so injured that I have to stop." I related all to well with that. It doesn't bother me at all that I haven't "bagged any peaks" yet. I will, no rush. I'm just glad for any day I can get out, get some views, fresh air, sunshine, and peace of mind. I'm glad that I'm open enough to share with friends when I'm really struggling, and I'm very thankful for friends that care enough to send me a "lace up your boots, I'm coming to pick you up" texts when I'm having a tough time. We all have our mountains to climb, and we all need a little help some time.πŸ’œπŸ»πŸ’œ * * * * #wildernessculture #amongthewild #lifeofadventure #liveoutdoors #discoverearth #wearethewild #exploremore #stayandwander #goexplore #coloradovibes #colorado2017 #lovelifeoutside #staywild #getoutdoors #americanfolk #coloradowild #keepitwild #colorado #simplyadventure #lifeofadventure #coloradowildlife #exploremore #stayandwander #liveferel #feraldenver #lovelifeoutside #staywild
