New Jack City with some awesome #ladyclimbers, Monica (@monnsolo) and Julie (@byd3sign). Got videos on a couple of warm-ups at Boy Scout Wall before moving on to some sweet climbs. Trying to log more hours climbing outdoors. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #newjackcity #njc #climbing #climbingismypassion #climbinglife #outdoors #outdoorsclimbing #outdoorsphotography #photography #nature #naturephotography #girlswhoclimb #ladycrushers #climbersofinstagram #climber #optoutside #rei #findyourpark #alwaysoutdoors #femaleclimbers #blackdiamond #patagonia #California #Calilife #neverstopexploring #neverstop

Cue basic New Year's post, with me staring off into the distance. At the close of the first week of the new year, it has been a good time to reflect. This past year has been full of growth in so many ways, but I know there is so much left for me to learn. I have learned to be more conscientious and self-aware and more insightful. I have learned grace and acceptance. Most importantly, I have learned kindness for myself. I am grateful for the friends I have made this year with so many people I am blessed to know and to have become close friends with. I am grateful for old friends that have stood by me. could not give you proper diligence by naming you in this post. This past year has been full of so many experiences and I look forward to 2018 and what's to come. Here's to looking forward. pc: @ada.photo . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #newyear #friendship #growth #basic #blessed #photography #gopro #painteddesert #arizona #desert #neverstopexploring #growth #ny #2018 #growing #neverstoplearning #neverstop #findyourpark #outdoors #naturephotography #deep #friends #grace #acceptance #kindness #love #patagonia #rei #photo

First day of the new year, last day in New York, last night of the road trip. Traveling is a lot of fun, but it'll be good to go home and have a moment to reflect on the year. I can think of few better ways to finish one year than with friends and start another with a little exploration. Here's to another year full of friendship, laughter, travel, and good vibes. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #newyork #ny #newyear #2018 #urban #urbanphotography #photography #traveling #travelinggram #travel #roadtrip #friendship #laughs #goodvibes #city #cities #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #Samsung #winter

Day 5, made it to Philadelphia. Stopped in Roanoke for lunch and explored a museum. Got cheese steak in Philly (absolutely delicious). It was great seeing a bit of the Philly night life and the city hall at night. :) thank you Ada (@themashingtimes) for taking me around and bringing me on this road trip. It's been a great adventure so far, one that has been full of insightful conversation and great moments. Memories for years to come. Excited and sad for the conclusion. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #Roanoke #Pennsylvania #Philadelphia #Philly #cheesesteak #cheese #sandwich #food #foodie #foodiegram #art #butterflies #artistry #artist #photography #city #urban #urbanphotography #museums #travel #roadtrip #traveling #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #Samsung

Made it to Nashville on day 4. Went through Memphis and saw some really great views. Had delicious chicken in Nashville. Met up with Mary (@lavenderriceball) and went to the Tin Roof. Saw some Nashville live music in action. Wonderful day full of good energy and vibes.

Day 3... Austin is an amazing city and I cannot wait for my next opportunity to come back. Great (Stumptown) coffee. Delicious brunch at Magnolia Cafe. Followed by a quick drive by of various Austin neighborhoods, including the Hope Outdoor Gallery, a public art space. Of course dinner was some delicious Austin bbq and closed the night with a view of the Capitol building from south Congress. There are so many other things I'd run out of space here to talk about it. All this from some amazing locals that are friends of Ada (@themashingtimes). Some great people that were excellent guides and fantastic conversation. They made this visit truly top notch. Definitely coming back. People make all the difference. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #Austin #brunch #coffee #bbq #soco #city #buildings #friends #travel #traveling #travelinggram #friendship #food #foodiegram #photography #art #urban #urbanphotography #Texas #friendship #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #keepaustinweird #stumptowncoffee #hopeoutdoorgallery #newfriends

Day 2, stark contrast from the beautiful nature of White Sands followed by the extraordinarily artificial art of Marfa. White Sands was a fun experience and sledding was amazing. Marfa was a trippy experience, juxtaposition of normal Americans surrounded by abstract modern art (this analysis stolen from @themashingtimes). Finally landed in Austin, did the most Austin thing: tacos and Topo. Excited to do a day in Austin for day 3. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #art #Austin #whitesands #NewMexico #nature #modernart #photography #Marfa #Texas #artistry #tacos #topochico #food #foodiegram #travel #roadtrip #road #driving #sand #gypsum #dunes #naturephotography #wanderlust #findyourtrail #findyourpark #fun #friends

Hours upon hours of driving (we started at midnight!)... My buddy Ada (@themashingtimes) and I completed day 1 of our road trip hitting up the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, and stopping in Albuquerque.

Went out to the Riverside Quarry yesterday with the amazing Monica (@monnsolo) whom I haven't seen in an age!! Great urban crag that's a lot of fun. It was great to be climbing outdoors again. Definitely need to do it more, I can feel the rust set in... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #climbing #nature #climbingismypassion #outdoors #outdoorsclimbing #rei #girlswhoclimb #leadclimbing #alwaysoutdoors #fitness #nature #sport #photography #fitnessmotivation #fit #fitnessgoals #exercise #climbinglife #losangeles #la #California #photography #latergram #photo #naturephotography

Amazing holiday themed housewarming party hosted by a pair of amazing people, Julie (@msjyu) and Natt (@nattastrophe). Delicious food, delicious desserts, and great company.

Just returned from Virginia and on my last two days, did a quick little road trip out to New York. Got to experience a bit of Manhattan and Central Park in some snow. Hit up the Pizza Barn for a 2 foot long pizza and got some delicious coffee at a cafe next to the Guggenheim. All in all a great visit to the east coast. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #travel #traveling #travelinggram #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #newyork #ny #nyc #pizza #2footpizza #food #foodislife #foodiegram #Manhattan #centralpark #coffee #photography #snow #naturephotography
