The day of the solar eclipse is the perfect time to ask ourselves Where do we need to have a break through in our lives, where can we allow more light? The new moon and new light signal a time of change, new beginnings and a reset on your true path. It's more than science it's spirituality. ❤️✨ . Here is a photo of the eclipse totality today. I know, I know, NASA has some too. But I'm proud I captured some of my own. . . solareclipse adventurethatislife canont3i timeofchange gypsysoul wanderer spiritualawakening photosbybreezy findyourzen exploremore livefree lovelife meetthemoment nofilter unedited rawphoto eclipse magic

Smiles make the world brighter and there's just so much to smile about, like it's friyay . I was all smiles here on one of the best days in the forest I've ever had. I think it's pretty obvious I love waterfalls but how about a few things you may not know about me. @mo_heldreth who snapped this shot while frolicking in the falls, tagged me in the 15 things you don't know about me challenge I don't normally do these but I also don't normally post photos of my face, so here goes... 1. I come from a family of dog breeders but I chose to adopt a mutt. 🐶 2. I was raised Mormon, I don't practice but have held onto a strong sense of spirituality. 3. I have two older brothers who used to torture me when I was younger and I always felt like I had to prove I could keep up with the boys. 4. I learned how to snow ski at 3 years old but haven't skied in 10 years. ⛷ 5. I studied a semester abroad in college. 6. I've never liked math and still count on my fingers. 7. I have a plant that's been with me for 15 years and lived in three different states. 🌱 8. I hate scary movies. 🙀 9. I've been in the same room as death while my grandfather passed. 10. I love chairs. 11. I was 14 on my first backpacking trip, 60 miles through Yosemite. 🏞 12. I've played in the Volleyball NCAA tournament. We lost first round. 13. I have conjured fire. 🔥 14. I have an obsession with rocks. 15. I really just want to make the world a better place. ❤️🌎 beautyqueendreams . . transparent liveauthentic waterfall adventurethatislife myjourney optoutside gypsysoul naturelover sheisnotlost wanderlust

Rising up and remembering my blessings. I woke up this morning feeling so full of love and gratitude for the life I live. I find myself caught dancing in waterfalls, somewhere between fairytale and reality. . In a world filled with so much pain and hate I feel so blessed to have been placed within this physical body, to belong to such wonderful parents who set me on a path to creating the journey of my dreams, and having a tribe who supports me with love along the way.

Every good weekend warrior knows how to make the most out of two days in order to be ready to tackle Mondays. . While I was out exploring this weekend with 8 wonderful women I was still able to find a few moments of solitude to focus, get grounded and set my intentions of carrying the wild energy of an amazing backpacking trip through the work week.

Sometimes when you get to a road block in life you have to just charge it full speed ahead and power through! . . On this hike I got to what appeared to be the end of my trail, a 12' foot small waterfall stared me right in the face. As I contemplated on whether to turn back or go around it I thought about what I tell myself if I reached a tough spot in life, would I give up and go back, would I make an alternate path, I decided I would go forward and push myself harder to reach new limits. So, I did just that at this trail "end." I decided to push myself to climb up and over the obstacle in my way. Because sometimes you have to know your limits and sometimes you have to create new ones! . . livefree lovelife reachnewheights limitless meetthemoment hike neverstopexploring utahisrad waterfallwednesday hikingyogi adventurethatislife optoutside climbing

Life will send you warning signs. Whether we are in tune enough to see them is on us. If we choose to listen to them or not defines how we can react to the outcome. . . Have you ever had something happen that made you say "I knew I shouldn't have done that" Or "I had a feeling that would happen"? Those instances are when you need to learn to listen, trust and follow those instincts in order to obtain your desired outcome. . . seethesigns beintune findyourzen adventurethatislife myjourney neverstopexploring lovelife liveauthentic betruetoyou bewhereyouare namaste wildthing

"For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfill themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree." -Hermann Hesse . . lessonsfromatree adventurethatislife optoutside lovelife livefree neverstopexploring rootdown riseup yogainspiration adventureyoga hike findyourzen

Sometimes we must ask ourselves the hard questions to find clarity. . Last week I went on hiatus from social media. I personally had to disconnect from all outside influences in order to be able to sit with myself, really tune in and listen to every wave of emotion and thought process as it occurred. I dove head first into the present moment to try and see my journey honestly. I was forced to listen very intently to receive the clarity I was seeking. . I decided to ask myself some hard questions without the worldly noise. Im happy to say, I found it so refreshing to be able to break the world down into just the world as it was happening around me. Not as it happens for thousands of people in thousand of different places accessed by the touch of a button. . If you find yourself seeking for answers or self truths try to take some time to be in tune with yourself. Yes it is great to be influenced by other peoples stories and work. Yes it is great to be inspired by motivational quotes and pretty pictures. But the real answers we all seek lie deep with in ourselves. . . 📸: Sunday sunrise hike.

"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." - Joseph Campbell . . Face your fears and dive right in. I've come to learn when you begin to over think things and fill your mind with the "what if" questions you keep yourself from greatness. . . While visiting @pinnaclesnps we hit the trail that headed straight for the caves. As I approached the giant fallen boulders I couldn't help but think of the phenomenon that had to of occurred to land all these big beautiful rocks perfectly balanced on top of each other. As I descended into a small opening in the rocks the what ifs crept in. What if there's an earthquake, what if there are bats, what if my flashlight doesn't work... and then as the cool damp air hit my skin and the soft glow of sun started to dim... what if... it's wonderful?! And it was. We climbed down and through a small passage way, (flashlight required) and finally towards the light only to have it open up into this big beautiful space where the darkness meets the light and I wanted to do it all over again. . . trailtuesday fearnot faceyourfears explore wanderlust liveauthentic livefree adventurethatislife powerofpositivity findyourzen hike meetthemoment

There is a shift in the tides. I feel it trying to change me. From the mountains to the beach I'm just going to keep being me. Wandering, exploring, getting lost in the beauty of nature, finding my zen wherever my feet take me. . We cant be everything for everyone. It is easy to be influenced by family, friends, co-workers or other IGers about the direction of the journey. I am being reminded on a daily that the most important thing, is to continue to do what makes me happy, to complete tasks that make me feel more complete, to find my own constant that makes my heart beat and let everyone else keep doing what is best for them. So whether I am on a weekend road trip exploring National Parks or getting bendy at sunrise after a night of camping on my local beach, I know the one constant that makes me me... I'll be forever finding my zen outdoors. 🙏🏼 namaste sundaymood doyou findyourzen lovelife livefree adventureyogi wanderlust explore liveauthentic

I have been a frequent visitor of many of the beautiful and sacred National Parks and Monuments. From the time I was a little girl traveling in my family's camper to my current adventures of sleeping under the stars. Exploring nature is my therapy. In 2006 I was diagnosed with severe depression after several years of different medicinal routes I gave up on zombie meds and resorted to the outdoors. It is where I feel most grounded, most joy and most freedom. Mainly these protected places are where I feel most alive! I escape my daily work life in Los Angeles to find my serenity in Monuments such as the Sequoias in CA and my all time favorites, Red Cliffs and Toadstool in UT. These places are so much more than just beautiful landscapes. They hold stories and history of our planet. In a time when capitalism and consumerism is at an all time high we Must continue to protect the small pockets of raw landscape the Earth and our country have left. Please keep in mind once the destruction begins there is no going back. Please don't take these places away! . .

"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion." --Albert Camus . . I feel so blessed to live in a place of freedom. After spending the last four days over this holiday weekend driving all over the state of California taking in the diverse beauty and people of three very different National Parks. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for being born in such a beautiful place.
