Nothing beats exploring some slot canyons in southeastern utah with a group of friends. Loved the wide angle shots I got with my @gopro during these hikes #n40creative #getyourassoutandadventure

Last week we built some tables in the desert for @ryanflyfisher and @dawnheumann wedding. And, oh yeah, Carter fucking Cox supplied the wood from his land in west #sonomacounty.

I think it’s a rule that when you finish your first outdoor boulder problem, you have to dance. #ladiesgetoutside #boulder #beutahful

It’s easy to have expectations for life. It’s also easy to have expectations for others. Assumptions about how things should go, how people should think, how people should operate their lives. It’s hard to release control especially if that control centers, provides structure, or gives purpose. I’m constantly reminding myself. . So many people in my life, including myself, have had to redefine ourselves where others have created fully developed versions of who we used to be. The process can be, to say the least, exhausting. As I grow into my own purpose and discover my own understanding of everything I am and all that I am a part of, I simultaneously grow away from many things that once gave me structure. . Growing is reimagining, redefining, redoing. I will never be exactly who I want myself to be, who my parents want me to be, my friends, my lover, but I continue to learn from those perspectives as my own reality continues to sharpen the edges of who I am. And as I sharpen, I set boundaries for myself and for those I love. And those boundaries allow all of us to love in our own reality. . Always trying to first rethink instead of trying to sync. And calm desert days with my little family definitely help me move in that direction. . #sunsouttonguesout #sanrafaelswell #beautahful #utah #germanshepherd #family #roadtrip #desertlife #slotcanyontrail

I might be an atheist, but I am very familiar with the concept of religious awe. I get it every time I’m out in the wilderness of Utah.

Go to the places that are hard to get to. The ones that don't have trails to them, the ones that are hard to find on maps, and the ones that test your limits of what you thought you were capable of. They truly are the most worthwhile.

We found our way into some serene canyons inside the San Rafael Swell. This area rivaled Alaska with it's vast wilderness and solitude. . . . . . #canyon #sanrafaelswell #utah #desertvibes

Canyonlands has always been my favorite place in the universe but now, it might have to compete with the San Rafael Swell. I’ll be back sooner than later. 👌 #slotsandrocks #utah #sanrafaelswell #littlewildhorsecanyon #womenofcolorado #rockdiscrete #slotsandrocks #goatworthy

DYNEEMA Poncho/Hammock/Tarp combo (PSS) in testing and R&D. About 8 oz and nearly as strong as our HD Series Ponchos. Definitely NOT FOR MOST PEOPLE but if you need it, it will be wonderful. At wildernessinnovation.com we are always pushing the boundaries, looking for things that make life in the outdoors better. The concept for the DYNEEMA PSS Poncho series is to have super light gear that is not delicate, but rather is very tough. It will not be an inexpensive item, and may have limited availability, but for those who require something at this level of performance, it will be the only thing. We’ve been working for months on design, production techniques, refinements, and features, now it is starting to take shape. Follow us here as we bring our unique take on gear to Dyneema fabric technology. It will be cool, guaranteed. #dyneema #cubenfiber #ultralite #campinglife #desertcamping #sanrafaelswell #utahtravels #utahgram #productofutah #madeinamerica #hightech #wildcamping #utahphotographer #getoutthere #justdoit #getoutside #utahliveelevated #utahexperience

The last couple weeks have been wild. @dawnheumann and @ryanflyfisher getting married in the #sanrafaelswell was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen at least four. • • • #beautahful #utahisrad #utahisbeautiful #hittheroad #trucklife #getoutside #roadtrip #wedding

I am dead serious. I carried my baby all over the #SanRafaelSwell in an infinity scarf 🧣. If you haven’t hiked the #WildhorseSlotCanyon It is a MUST. Just an FYI, if you go in early spring, there will be water in the beginning of the slot and you’ll have to hike over a mountainside cliff. 🤯🤯🤯 . . #southernutah #utah #slotcanyon #goblinvalley #goblinevalleystatepark #hikes #utahhikes #hiking #hikeutah #momlife #motherhood #babywrap #infinityscarf #momming #parenthood #vaca #utahvaca

This week, I went to the desert. And after weeks of being dragged through the silt at the bottom of my river, Stirring up everything I might have preferred to float right over, I came up through the muddy water and took a deep breath. I sat on the slickrock in the hot noon sun and had a staring contest with a whip tail lizard, And I quietly Realized something. I sat in the dust and warily watched a yearling rattlesnake and counted shooting stars, And I quietly Realized something. I sat on the exposed roots of the rabbit brush high on the swell and watched a pronghorn who curiously watched me too while we waited for the sun to rise, And I quietly Realized something. The tears in my eyes on my first night down there were ones of pain, disorientation, and confusion. On the morning that I left, some days later, The tears in my eyes were ones of overwhelming gratitude, whole-creation love, and the most recent wave of Understanding. I went to the desert to hold space for a big pile of students, many of whom were experiencing the dust and the darksky starlight for the first time, And unsurprisingly, they ended up unknowingly holding space for me. Together we clambered up sandstone faces past old mine shafts, Wound through slot canyons and climbed over mud puddles, Dove face first into the murky water of the Colorado and came up gasping for the shock of the cold in heat of the day. On that last morning sunrise, I sat with a small group and we wondered about stewardship of the land vs ownership of the land. I wanted to press my face into the soft bosom of the lilac light and inhale deeply the sweetness of the dawn, Because that morning, it was she that held us all. I looked at the sleepy faces of the kids and the seriousness of their stares at the horizon, Something that I might normally find endearing, And was overwhelmed by their importance. I listened to them muse about their role in this seemingly endless expanse of high desert and the mountains far out of view, And I quietly Realized something. These soft chimes of realization are still ringing in my bones and have not yet formed words, But when they do, You’ll know. ... #desertlife #wildchild #sanrafaelswell

This poor tent was attacked mercilessly by wind and sand during my trip. No fewer than four large rocks on each stake, just to remain grounded. The wind won, while breaking down camp. After getting the rainfly off and put away, a gust of wind that can only be described as something a giant would've sneezed out hit. It picked up my tent, stakes and all, and sent it airborne over the hill to the right. As it bounced up the hill, throwing stakes in all directions, I tried in vain to catch up to it. Running up a hill in soft sand is not conducive to catching a runaway tent. Many curse words may have been uttered at this point. It reached the top and floated in mid-air for a moment before it again took off like an albatross made of netting and fabric. I then lost sight of it. I finally found it about half a football field's length away. Sitting perfectly upright, unharmed. Not a lick of damage. I managed to grab it right before another gust took it further, and carried it back to camp. All the while, the wind tried it's damndest to rip it from my grip. But on the plus side, all the sand that had gotten in over the weekend was cleared out. 😂 I also only lost 1 stake in the whole adventure . So, thanks @rei for such a well made tent. It took some abuse like an absolute champ.

Canyoneering is a family favorite activity. There is seldom anyone else around and we get to see amazing things most others don't. Have you ever been? . . . Food is Always Epic. We are always on the lookout for easy snacks to take on our adventures. What are your go to's? I'd love to know so I can keep my boys hunger from turning hangry😂😋😂. . . . Super snack time is available only at walmart. I guess we will see if it's a "keeper". 🤔 (canyoneering humor)🤣😂. . . . #canyoneering #canyoning #canyons #wetsuits #outdoorfun #outdoorplayground #familyadventures #adventureawaits #adventurefamily #bucketlist #adventuretogether #southernutah #sanrafaelswell #greasewood #wetsuitsrequired #SuperSnackTime  #ambsst #ambcollab #wowutah #utahisbeautiful #utahlife #beautiful_world #neature #utahisrad #getoutside #naturesplayground #exploreutah #explorertheworld
