As i write this my pup, tabor, is cuddled up next to me on the couch. it’s so wild to think that this dog who was scared of everything and everyone is now such a brave adventurer and excellent cuddle buddy…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it’s been a little over a year now since we rescued her and even though we were told she was saved from a puppy mill we know relatively little about her background or the breeding practices of the place she was rescued from.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
in oct i partnered with @wisdompanel to celebrate adopt a shelter dog month and as part of that partnership, we got to test out the #wisdompanel 4.0 for ourselves and find out a bit more about tabor’s genetic story.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
according to her results, she is 75% mini american shepherd (also known as mini aussie) and 25% australian shepherd but the most impactful thing we learned was that she is positive for the mdr1 gene mutation! dogs that have the mdr1 mutation may potentially have harmful reactions to commonly used medications, so informing tabor’s veterinarian about this information is really important. they can identify appropriate medications to use that will not have these side effects so we’re able to keep tabor safe and healthy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
adopting from a shelter is incredibly rewarding but not knowing your dog’s history can feel a bit disempowering. learning more about tabor’s genetics has made me feel like i have more tools than ever to be the dog mama she deserves and i’m looking forward to as many years of adventures together as possible!

I think about bravery a lot. a skill that i want to cultivate more of. something i want to be known for. and i’ve realized that, like most things, bravery is simple. just do the next thing. make the next move. then the next one after that. ⁣

what do they say, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step? that’s bravery. the first step. and then the one after. and after that. fast or slow — you’re still moving. ⁣

so keep going. just do the next thing.

Today’s feature friday is someone that we admire, respect, and have learned a lot from here at @womenwhohike. her name is @gina_danza and here she talks about being a black woman who hikes and using her creative voice for representation in the outdoors.
“three years ago i walked into an outfitter to purchase my first pair of climbing shoes. i did my research on sizing and was ready to explore. i began pulling out a few boxes when a white man came over to me. we started chatting about climbing and he asked if i needed help. i noticed he was a customer, not an employee. at the end of our chat about where i climbed etc, he said, ‘oh! don’t take this the wrong way but it’s odd to see you in here... black people don’t climb or hike.’ i giggled in shock as he walked away. i sat there with my new shoes in my hand and looked at the advertisements around me... not one person of color. this is when i knew i needed to make a change because i felt no one else was going to.
i work with outdoor brands today to not only get poc but all people represented in a space that’s so white. as a photographer and creative director, i create around the fact that nature is colorful and so are the trails. hiking can be very intimidating and it may feel unsafe for most women but as a black woman, it’s a whole different vibe. i’ve been asked if i was lost... and that my melanin tone that matched the bark on the tree next to me was odd to see.
a research project that i am slowly stabbing away at daily is this: that every shape, color, and identity are on these trails. we’re growing and showing up. and, i’m not going to stop doing the work as a creative until everyone is equally represented in a space where i feel most at home.”

Not sure how everyone else measures wealth -
but i bet none of the folks on the forbes 400 list get to park their home in the shadows of el capitan and eat breakfast in bed while watching the sun rise over yosemite valley.
now, i might not have a handful of zeros listed in my net worth,
and my most prized possessions might all fit within 90 square feet,
but moments like this make me rich.

comment 109 star 5,260 2 days ago

I shared this a year ago but it somehow feels even truer now. ⠀


the thing about growing closer with someone is that you can’t do so without surrendering yourself. all of the little pieces of you that much of the world never gets to see have to, at some point, come out of hiding. you have to be ugly, and that’s the beauty of it all. ⠀

you have to fall on your face snowboarding down a mountain. you have to admit that you’re scared of highball bouldering problems. you have to break down about your dog having a bad day. you have to p*e in the woods, or in a bag (long story). you have to get hangry after 8 hours of climbing. you have to cry about cold and fatigue and soreness and often, nothing at all. ⠀

and what happens is this: the universe makes a deal with you. ⠀
if, or when, you can surrender those notions of self and let yourself be, as is, you get these beautiful relationships that grow out of the ugliness. you get people who you were sure you’d scare away after the first hike or climb or bike or skin or camp, but who instead laugh it all off with you and stick around. you get people who text you to tell you what a good job you did, as you were texting them to apologize for slowing them down. ⠀

you get people who somehow maybe don’t even see the ugly as ugly. i’ll take that trade-off any day. 📸: @kammitchellphoto

For last two months i was in my hometown - silchar, assam. though small trips happened during that time (thailand & kolkata); but majority of the time i was happily tucked in my humble abode

that was probably the most eventful months of my life, and the life graph was indeed in its fullest up and down mode. some deets might be revealed while some not. peace and solace of mind was at bay.
people seek peace of mind amidst nature; they travel to faraway lands to find greens; but what option do we have who has a house in the greenest part of the country? however, guess thats how you should live life. and when that happens switch yourself off and after sometime everything will start falling into place

this picture was clicked yesterday when i was coming back on the way to the airport. it is one of the largest tea estate of the region. also, did you know assam is the largest tea producer of the world? see i managed to still found a brighter side of life that i belong to assam💕

Day 7 📷 favorite photo of 2019

i absolutely could not choose, but i knew the fitz roy in argentinian patagonia was my fave epic wonder to take photos of this year.

this mountain range looks to me like a legend, like what the city skyline used for inspiration when it was searching for form.

i could (and did) study her for hours, from so many lenses. i also took this photo on the longest hike i’ve ever done at 14.28 miles—effort justification like no other.

browse through my feed if you are just as enchanted as i am—you can’t miss her angles.

This year has been a year of some amazing firsts, but this one might be my favorite. after purchasing my first touring setup—actually, first pair of skis ever even though i’ve skied since i was a kid!—i was finally able to get them out on some snow today. although things didn’t go quite as smoothly as i’d hoped (thanks to the dismal amount of snow and some difficulty in adjusting my boots for painless downhill skiing), i am beyond excited to get back out and try again. i am officially hooked! this winter is going to be something special ❤️ #earnyourturns #skiuphill ———————————————

comment 6 star 39 7 hours ago

This was probably one of my favorite hikes this past summer because i don't get out to the mt baker area as much as i would like to (long drive and hard to time out decent weather there) and it truly is such a gorgeous area to explore. our plan was to complete our original trail and then on the way back we would branch off down to this gorgeous turquoise blue lake that we knew you could see from the main trail based off trip reports and others have gone to it as well...problem is we couldn't see it at all because of socked in fog and even on the way back to the trailhead we couldn't see it even though it had cleared a little. luckily we had screenshotted trip reports and were able to find the general idea of where it was located, started off down what looked like a narrow little path from the main trail and hoped for the best.

we found it thankfully although the hike there and back wasn't the easiest and turned our 9 miles into 12 or 13 miles that day and it was pretty steep coming back up from the lake but so worth the effort! nobody was around when we went and it was so quiet and peaceful and man that color is so unreal 😍 i wish there had been a little more light out that day for better photography of the lake and that it was clear for the views but it was so gorgeous regardless and i definitely wanna go back! funny thing is when we got back to the main trail the fog had finally cleared entirely and you could definitely see the lake in the distance now. i for sure want to do more trails in this area and the north cascades next summer! if you're a washingtonian, what area do you live by that you tend to explore the most because of close proximity? what area do you want to see more of?

comment 6 star 174 Yesterday

I absolutely loved this hot spring in the alvord desert because you can control the heat and keep it nice and toasty your whole soak! in fact sometimes it got too hot in there which is even better when the weather is below the 20s! we were surprised that there were 3 other small groups here during thanksgiving and the bad weather but it was still very quiet & private, especially since we picked a campsite way in the back against the playa and were the only ones camped back there. you can camp on the playa for free but when it's wet from rain or snow it isn't advisable to go out there since it gets crazy muddy and your car can get stuck so if you're coming out here and run into bad weather the alvord hot springs is a good alternative to camp at.

you can pay $30 to camp which includes fire ring, access road to the playa, free hot spring soaking at any hour, and free use of the clean (flushing!) bathroom. you can also pay $60 to use one of their bunkhouses instead which is like a metal container with heat & beds. to me it was a bit pricey for a campsite but being able to soak in the springs whenever you wanted, access to a clean bathroom, and use the playa access road at anytime was a plus (also wasn't a ton of options in this weather lol). you can also have a fire at this campground but no open fires are allowed on the playa based on my research. alternatively you can try to find a free blm campground or camp on the playa in good weather but still use the springs by paying $8 for day use to soak from 8am-10pm and $5 for use of the playa access road. we did see a free access road near here but it was steeper than the campgrounds access road and with the snow it seemed a little sketchy but we think we'll try using that access next summer when we're back! have you been to the alvord desert?

Our last climbing lesson from this chap. i initially signed up to for this to prove to myself that fear didn’t have to rule every area of my life. i ended up really loving it and wanting to do it more. i’ve said it before but i’ll say it again. i will likely forever be a beginner and i’m totally okay with that, i can still learn more, improve on my skills without any expectations besides having fun. i learned something, worked past some fear and laughed a ton in the process @hdgray87 thanks for being the best partner in this. ❤️
