Impressions from a rainy day drive with @kylaadawn - watching the forest roll silently by, stopping often to admire the fog through the trees 🌲

Things often don’t go as planned in the backcountry, and this day was no different. No, we didn’t plan for the insane bushwhack, snakes, or incoming clouds obscuring our view for the better part of the trip. That being said, we also didn’t plan for possibly the most beautiful blue hour inversion I’ve ever seen. No expectations are the best expectations ⛰🌧🙏🏻 - Thanks for helping with this one @matthewhahnel. Glad we got a liter of wild berries out of this mess.

My last drive through Milford Sound - listening to my favorite songs and the steady rain against the windshield - hoping that I’d never forget how it felt to be in my favorite place 🌿⛰. - Song: Passenger Seat @deathcabforcutie

“To be lost is such a wild feeling” - I had this thought earlier this year, thousands of miles away from home, as I sat alone in a fast food restaurant having not the greatest time. It was certainly an empty feeling. I was “living the dream”. I had quit my job a month earlier to pursue what I loved, had a handful of amazing clients already, and was exploring places I’d always wanted to see. Yet, I felt further away from having any semblance of direction than ever before. I’ve come a long way since that McFlurry pity party. Not in the sense that I have any idea what’s going on still, but I’ve come to know this: Life is full of strange roads - some ending with disappointment, others with a surprising light. It really isn’t about the final destination. It’s about accepting that we’re all lost, and that our greatest journey is just choosing to go. Thank you @jeep for letting me travel these strange roads with you. It means the world. #jeep#jeepambassador#ad

Yesterday I stood on top of the tallest mountain I’ve ever climbed with my friend @scott_kranz. I’m incredibly exhausted, but ohhh so happy. Pretty crazy the places your own two legs can take you 🏔
