"Learn how to ask questions. To me, that is the hallmark of education"- Angela Davis Just went to a lecture by the original revolutionary Angela Davis today who talked about a lot of things related to the current state of humanity, but in particular about Native Americans and their continuous struggles as First People on this land. There is so many things to be learned from Nature and as we travel to visit national parks, I hope we also spend time learning about the First People who lived there and beautifully took care of Nature in those spaces. Her lecture was all sorts of inspiring and wokeness, and she likes hiking 💛. Thought about you @caliwolf and @hozhorunner4 😊 Mukuntuweap National Monument (Zion NP), ancestral land of the Paiutes . . . #vivfib #teamcanon #canonbringit #bbctravel #liveforthestory #voyageursdumonde #optoutside #adventureenthusiasts #diversifyoutdoors #unlikelyhiker #brownpeoplecamping #blackoutdoors #melaninbasecamp #diversityinadventure #ig_nature_naturally #forceofnature #findyourpark #mypubliclands #watchthisinstagood #usinterior #nationalparkgeek #lr_earth #recreationgov #zionnationalpark #mukuntuweap #werutah #observationpoint #xputah #zionnps #angeladavis @zionnps @usinterior @nationalparkgeek

Meet Audrey, who one time drove up Mt. Rainier with rice cookers in the trunk. (3/3) • •Most Memorable Meals• 1. Trekking in Burma - On our first day trekking Burma, we stumbled across the festival for the young boys who were joining the monastery. We ended up in this tiny village where we were supposed to sleep in the principal’s home. The guide brought in a cook who rode up on his moped. He cooked everything using his moped generator. It was rice and a curry, and this delicious stir fry okra. Sure I had been hiking all day and wanted some vegetables, but it tasted so good. I was amazed that he cooked an entire meal on the back of his moped, and then afterwards packed up and left. It was a magical moped with okra. • 2. Hiking in Scotland- I went to Scotland with Todd’s family. While we were in Oban, we could see a tiny island that was uninhabited except for a few farms. The two of us decided to hop on a ferry. Todd looked at the map of the island on Google and said we should just wing it. It ended up being six hours of bushwhacking, going up some pretty big hills, and mushing through soggy bogs to get to the other side. We ended up at this picturesque tea cottage right before they closed. We had this cute little pot of tea, delicious cookies, and a chocolate cake. Afterwards, we took the ferry back, and ended up on the opposite side of town. So we caught a ride with an old man in his car who dropped us off at Todd’s parents’ hotel. It was a total adventure of hiking outdoors, meeting locals, and eating cake. It was a great day. • • • • • Read more at www.asideofchillies.com/blog/audrey #backpacking #burma #oban #optoutside #diversifyoutdoors #outdoorasian

They say that before anything, you must love yourself first. What do you guys think of that? . How do you love yourself unconditionally? Especially when so many of us are our own worst critics. . Thoughts? . . . Photo taken on July 22nd, 2018

“Hello peeps! My name is Padou Futh, I was born and raised in the DR Congo, and came to the US about 6 years ago. I love hiking and the outdoor activities. I ain't gonna lie it's my every time therapy. And being part of this group called Diversity In Adventure, is such an amazing thing. I get to meet new people coming from all over the world, and I get to bond with them through this desire of being out there connected with nature. Thank you all.” - @padoushka_52 . 📷 @tahiristan . . . Padou and I met in college about 5 years ago because of our interest in learning about each others cultures. I remember how much his stories inspired me back then and still do. It’s amazing the kind of connections you can make if you simply go say hello to someone! We all seem to be so caught up in our day we tend to forget this. . . . . . Want to be featured? Use #diversityinadventure or tag us in your photos and we'll DM you!

For #waterfallwednesday here’s a beautiful cascade in Olo Canyon, a side canyon on the Colorado River, mile 145. Olo is Havasupai for “little horse”. The Havasupai people are indigenous to Grand Canyon and continue to live in the village of Supai in Havasu Canyon, where the famous blue-green waterfalls are located. This watershed is currently threatened by uranium mining development. 📷: @desertsirena

Diamond Beach is where icebergs that float from Glacier Lagoon out to sea get pounded back to shore by the waves. As a photography enthusiast, I had a great time playing with perspective and creative settings.

Every time I find a new #POC hiking/camping group, I swear I light up inside. Thank you for doing what you do! This. Did. Not. Exist When I was growing up! I wish it had. I wouldn’t have felt like such an outsider at Girl’s Scouts. I would have been a hiker from earlier on in my life. I had no idea how much I needed and treasured nature as much as I do now. If I can save a fellow woman, especially a #poc, time and let them see how amazing it is to sit in the stillness of the wilderness or how accomplished you feel after climbing a huge mountain, then I’ve done what I set out to do. 🙌🏽 🌿✍🏽

💛SUICIDE PREVENTION💛. In case I haven’t shared this, I’m a sucker for self-development books! I know many people don’t like this genre, and I really don’t understand why 🤷🏻‍♀️. I find it fascinating to learn about the human mind, behavior and betterment. So here are some books that I’ve really enjoyed and, who knows, maybe you’ll like them too, they definitely helped me during some very challenging times emotionally: * Emotional First Aid, by Guy Winch; * Loving What Is, by Byron Katie; * The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz; * Radical Acceptance, by Tara Brach; * The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*, by Mark Manson; * The Happiness Advantage, by Shawn Achor; And: * Girl, Wash Your Face, by Rachel Hollis. These are just the ones I tackled this past year and have learned lots from them! 🤓. What about you? What’s your favorite genre to read and why? 💛💋. . 🇧🇷 🇧🇷: 💛PREVENÇÃO AO SUICÍDIO💛 Caso eu não tenha feito isso óbvio antes, eu adoro livros sobre desenvolvimento pessoal. Sei que tem pessoas que não gostam desse gênero, e sinceramente não entendo por quê 🤷🏻‍♀️. Eu acho fascinante aprender sobre a mente humana, comportamentos e melhoramento. Listei acima alguns livros que li durante este ano e gostei muito, e espero que gostem também! Não sei se tem todos em Português mas talvez valha à pena colocar os nomes dos autores na biblioteca local e ver. 🤓. E você? Qual seu gênero favorito para ler e por que? 💛💋. . #imagedescription: woman walking in nature away from the camera and towards a hiking trail that is unpaved, with big green trees on both sides.

This is Michell. Michell never thought she would breach her Spanish 👉🏻 English language barrier in school. But her will to succeed was strong, and she made it to high school where she found Outdoor Outreach and started challenging herself in new ways. ⠀ ⠀ •⠀ ⠀ This summer she backpacked 13 miles in the High Sierra, learning to step out of her comfort zone as she experienced every activity for the first time. As Michell says, “Great things never come from comfort zones.” ⠀ ⠀ •⠀ ⠀ Michell will be sharing her full story at our Lead the Way event on September 28th. Go live with us that night or show your support for kids like Michell by donating through the link in our bio!

I could have, would have, should have a lot of things. But what I do have is my experiences, my failures, and my accomplishments. Measuring success isn’t linear nor is it something to beat yourself up about. . . . We can all agree that we’ve had moments where we say to ourselves...Am I enough? In work, at school, in our love lives and everything else in between. As a society we are constantly told we are not enough for this world. Were constantly chasing the green grass until we get to the other side that we are not watering our own self growth and worth. . . . Remember to feed and water your mind and soul. The power of not giving up is real, remember that at any moment the direction you want to go will present itself. Keep on growing, and grinding...YOU ARE ENOUGH! . . . 📸 @ayala.photographs @mountainhardwear @latinooutdoors @madrockclimbing @outdoorproject #rockclimbing #sportclimbing #sheventures #womeninthewild #publiclands #california #latinaoutdoors #latinooutdoors #sponsored #humble #youareenough #diversifyoutdoors #womencrushwednesday #browngirlsclimb #mountainhardwear #madrockclimbing

I'm excited. I just got home from #Europe last night and realize that this weekend (september 22nd) I am going to be a guest speaker at the @accessfund Advocacy Summit with my buddy @forrest_in_the_forrest . I am deep into this webpage I am creating for our work this weekend to be a consistant resource post presentation. my eyes hurt because of the jet lag. but imma keep going. I am just swimming in positivity to share the stage with him and learn as much as possible from the other educational sessions during the day. I also get to connect with some of my heroes. #diversifyoutdoors #diversityismorethancolor #werkwerkwerk #nycliving #saveourspaces #selfiepatrol

@Regrann from @wongjonsilver - So, we took a rest day that ended up not being much of one. Unfortunately, means we had to take an additional rest day... However, I got a great view of some mountains above the smokescreen and of @heyjaylink , putting my bikes to use and punishing our legs instead of our hands. . . . . . .

I've been fortunate to see and accomplish a lot in my life. Yet, my greatest honor thus far has been becoming a mother and tapping into the vast wealth of ancestral knowledge of Mothers before me. These boys are no strangers to divine feminine power and our world will be better because of it. Mono/Monache territory

Hoping to see some of these rad ladies again tonight at @firstascentclimbing Avondale location. 💪🏽💜💪🏽 Come join me and a group of strong lady climbers, open to all skill-levels. Also, it will be my first day back after my forced injury break!

I see the leaves changing a little and I have feelings about it! I’m not ready. It’s been such an amazing summer and in the Pacific Northwest we become our best selves in summer. I’ve been calling it “My Summer of Trying New Things.” Here’s what I’ve tried: backpacking (you may remember the story of my tent flying off a cliff?), which led to multiple backpacking trips. I also tried hammock camping. No tent, just hammocks, while car camping and backpacking. Warm nights and cold, rainy alpine nights. I’ll tell you more about that soon! And just last week I tried kayaking for the first time, which I’m already obsessed with. I feel like I’m ready to leave my entire life behind and become a kayaker! All of that said, fall is the BEST hiking weather. I’m looking forward to warm drinks after hikes and everything becoming green again and the leaves turning wild colors beyond our imaginations, as if it doesn’t happen every single year. I’m curious, did you try anything new this summer? How are you feeling about the season change? #sponsored #REI ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📝&📸: @jennybruso ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Middle Rock Lake, Roaring River Wilderness, Oregon. #middlerocklake Ancestral land of the Molala+.] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag #unlikelyhikers or #unlikelyhiker to be featured ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [image description: person stands next to two loaded backpacking packs with glimmering lake in background lined with a tree covered ridge.]

[ #sponsored] “Intentional living is the art of making our own choices before others' choices make us.” ― Richie Norton I read this quote the other day and the words rung in my ears and stuck to my bones.  It meant so much to me because of the reference to both choice and intention. In my experience, choice and intention go hand and in hand, and in the absence of either, lasting change is impossible.  Choosing things that are good and healthy for us isn’t always easy, but it’s necessary --and that’s why intentionality is so important. Once we set an intention to do something… then every choice, and every action that follows must fall in line with our initial intention. And as it relates to mental health and overall wellness,  fall is the first test of our true intentions. Let me explain,during the summer months, getting outside is fun. Not only that, it’s easy. It’s nothing to simply grab a cold drink and meet a few friends out for lunch, or swap out your Saturday brunch plans for an impromptu hike. Once the days start getting shorter (and the degrees get lower) however, it can be harder to find the time, energy, or desire get outside and that’s where our two favorite words intention and choice come into play. During the fall and winter months chances are you won’t find yourself accidentally lingering longer outside or skipping town for the weekend to head to a local beach. Instead, you will have to choose; to carefully select the time, spaces and activities that move you, that motivate you and that speak to you. This is the gift of Fall.  Fall gives us the opportunity to carefully craft our outdoor experiences….intentionally. What are of the ways you get outside during the fall months? #forceofnature #rei #optoutside

Sólo vive tu vida . . . - + “It was like this: you were happy, then you were sad, then happy again, then not. It went on. You were innocent or you were guilty. Actions were taken, or not. At times you spoke, at other times you were silent. Mostly, it seems you were silent—what could you say? . . . Like a lover, your life bends down and kisses your life. It does this not in forgiveness— between you, there is nothing to forgive— . . . Your story was this: you were happy, then you were sad, you slept, you awakened. Sometimes you ate roasted chestnuts, sometimes persimmons.” Jane Hirshfield, After (fragment) + Stehekin Landing Days: Walking back from the Bakery, Weaver Point (the foot of Tupshin Peak) & the foot of Riddle Peaks & Castle Rock with Domke & Moore Point in the distance.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen a polar bear in real life outside of a zoo? I’ll wait. Many people haven’t and might never. This polar bear was installed in front of San Francisco’s iconic Ferry Building in conjunction with the Global Action Climat Summit last week. I had the honor and privilege of attending the Summit for my real job and my biggest takeaway was the importance of centering the most vulnerable who all too often are the poor and people of color throughout the global South. One of the speakers who struck me most was a college student named Maya who was frustrated that a lot of the climate change conversation centered around protecting polar bears instead of centering and highlighting the marginalized communities and developing countries like her native Philippines that suffer most from the adverse effects of a changing global climate. Closer to home for me, I think about the South and how low-lying parts of my beloved Louisiana and Houston are prone to flooding that will only get worse. I also think about Puerto Rico and the lives that were lost due to a deadly combination of Hurricane Maria and government negligence. Climate Change is real and climate activism and action must be rooted in social justice and center those most affected. It’s not enough just to recreate on these lands and celebrate inclusion, we gotta do more. I learned so much last week and look forward to continuing to build on that knowledge and share with y’all. Who are some of your favorite POC environmentalists and/or WOC environmentalist from whom you’re learning? Check the IG stories to hear from Catherine Flowers of the @eji_org (video courtesy of @southerly_mag )about climate change’s impact on rural, coastal communities of color. _______________________________________________________ #thegreatoutchea #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #diversifyoutdoors

Before moving to Iowa I loved backpacking every summer. Nikira’s mom taught me how to clean & cook trout we caught in the Sierras. (And to the dismay of my sis-in-law, I even ate fish eyes, bc extra calories 🤷‍♀️) . “Lesbians of Iowa” (a group inclusive of queer, bi, trans, nonbinary people) is having a camping trip this month. It will be a touch less rustic. Probably a lot of fish though. We’re gonna check it out... 🌈⛺️🐟

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky to work with Ambreen of @brownpeoplecamping for a rebranded logo. This was a very fun project and I am super happy with the results as they reflected her vision in the best way possible. Go give her page a visit. She does amazing things for the #diversifyoutdoors movement and educating her community on safe and respectful ways to explore public lands. If you are also in need of new branding send me an email and let’s get started 😊 #illustration #logodesign #freelanceartist #brownpeoplecamping #diversifyoutdoors #optoutside #dowhatyoulove #blackartist
