This Tuesday feels like it should be at least a Thursday 😂 With the daylight hours getting shorter and shorter, it’s hard to get motivated to do things after a work day! Anyone else struggle with this? .
How do you stay motivated?

Sunset at Ausangate mountain, the way the light was hitting and lightning part of the mountain was astonishing. After I was done editing this photo I was like "I think this photo will look great in black and white" so I did a black and white version. Do you like it? Which one do you like more?
Somewhere in the woods, a cozy cabin, a campfire and time with you besties 😍 Tag your friends you would like to go there ❤

Let the good times roll.
October has been both an amazing month, and a terribly difficult month at the same time. There’s two major events in the past few years, both memories I wish I could simply forget, and though I try not to think about either, they’re like a cloud looming over my emotional landscape. To top that off, there have been several highly stressful events in the past few weeks that have caused my metaphorical glass to feel low... But I’m fighting to not relent. I’m pushing to keep the good times and goals in front of me at every step. That’s partially where riding has come into play. Right as I needed something to pull me out of my pit, I bought this machine, and it has been one of the most mentally, emotionally, and physically freeing things I’ve ever bought. I understand now why so many people love riding so damn much! And that’s why I’m soaking up every opportunity to ride I can before the season ends. I love the fall, and I’m more inspired artistically than I have been in awhile, but with high highs comes low lows... but that’s what makes riding so fun I suppose.

Shelter from the heat.
near Pinnacles National Park, CA • October 2019
Journal Entry 60 - Palouse Falls, WA
A good adventure is often like a slow carousel; a sort of grand kaleidoscope built of memories, emotion and growth, all exploding within the different experiences pirouetting before you. And much like how all roads lead to an end, so too does each tale of adventure - leaving linear timelines of the before, during; and of what becomes the after.
I met “Payson” by happenstance, returning home from Utah during the late spring of 2019. He’d tracked me down using Instagram, sharing stories of emprise: peaks summited, camping endeavours; immersion in the surrounding canyonlands.
Through comparing our feats of grandeur, using exploration as our commonality we quickly forged a fraternal bond, and within a week I had loaded up another rental car with gear - following the country roads one thousand miles back, to shake hands with a complete stranger; to venture into the wild, together.
Nothing safe is ever worth the drive, and so it was, into the sun I drove; watching gravel dust kicked up in my rear view mirror, in anticipation of the unknown.

This time last year, I was exploring the beautiful southern part of Italy, and Matera was, by far, a wonder. So much history and beauty in one of the oldest cities in the world.
Since last year was not the best year in terms of expressing myself on social platforms, I take advantage of some good old throwbacks.
This place tells a story. It tells a story of a town booming because of its location near to diamond mines. It tells a story
about the people, who lived there. And it tells a story of the short live of material things. My precious followers will know
the background about this ghost town, which I told you few posts before. As soon as the diamonds were gone, so were the
inhabitans as well. This makes me think, what is really important in life. Having long lasting memories and building things
for a long term reason. We are living in world, which is focused on quick success. But is quick & dirty a real thing or should
we establish our environment for a long time?
Anzeige: hopefully summer comes fast back 😍. I love to enjoy some ice cold @bitburger with friends on the top of the mountain 🍻. #bitteeinbit#bitburger
Ach wie ich diese schönen Sommertage schon jetzt vermisse. Oben auf dem Berg, mit einem kühlen Pils in der Hand und einer tollen Aussicht den Tag ausklingen zu lassen 🤤😍👌🍻.
Fall out here in the Rockies can be a very mixed bag; one day it will rain, the next it can snow, and a day later it could be sunny and warm, and the snow will melt again. It’s a pretty interesting time of year! I explored this canyon twice last week. The first time it had just snowed, the temperature was freezing and icicles were forming along the walls. The second time, after just a few warmer, sunny days, all that ice and snow had melted, and the creek ran much stronger, making for a very wet adventure. Thankful for my @columbia1938 OutDry Titanium gear to keep me dry and warm in any of these conditions. #sponsored
The water at Krka National park is so clear, you could easily spend a day here swimming and relaxing 🏞

Just reflecting on our short stay in Yosemite NP last week...
The beauty that place holds is something fierce. And I can’t help but feel incredibly blessed that we get to explore it. This was only the second time going, but each visit we have been able to do a day hike that leaves us energized and satisfied. This time around, also incredibly sore.
With more than 2,000 ft elevation gain and a 600 steep granite stairway to climb we were for sure gonna feel it the next day. But I am so fortunate that my body is capable to do things like this. It’s a gift I don’t want to take lightly. Because it leads me to areas and views that are such a blessing to soak in. This was also the first time I got to hike part of the John Muir trail ( we did Mist trail there and JM back ) which makes me feel very giddy.

Cuba has incredible rock for climbing but doesn’t have a mountain culture filled with individuals who are interested in it. When I visited, there were only eight local climbers in the small farming town of Vinales, the climbing capital of the country. Local climbers along with those who have visited over the years have been able to develop many routes on the impressive limestone faces despite challenges.
A reason why the climbing community hasn’t matched the landscape has been because of politics. The government doesn’t allow climbing even though they rarely enforce their rules. Since they are communist, obtaining gear is one of the big challenges for the locals. They rely entirely on donations from visitors and climbing companies. The two climbers that I was talking to want the sport to grow and even allow locals to use the gear from their shed to see if they are interested. The future of climbing in the country remains uncertain but the rocks aren’t going away any time soon.

When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.
We wanted to hit Radium hot springs, but they were closed for renovations so we opted for plan B! A little ways out at 1.5 hour drive we made our way to Banff Upper Hot Springs. It was especially nice that they open until 21:00 (9:00PM) so we were able to make it after we landed and relax after our flight and drive out here. Even moreso when it started snowing later! It's extra nice to soak in a hot spring during winter time, you get that nice temperature difference!
💎Who is Imam Hussein?
💓who is this hussain whom the whole world is crazy about?!
⚔️What has happened so massive on Ashura in Karbala?
📣O people of the world know that I am the imam al-Qَaem 📣O people of the world know that I am the sword that takes revenge 📣O people of the world know that my grandfather Hussain was martyred while he was thirsty 📣O people of the world indeed I am the son of Hussain whose Holy body was left on the soil while it was uncovered 📣O people of the world indeed my grandfather Hussain was trampled out of spite
Imam Hussain was Prophet Muhammad 's grandson. After 50 years of Prophet Muhammad's demise, (in time of Imam Hussain), Yazid was the ruler. A cruel corrupted man who knew nothing about Islam and intended to establish a monarchy under the name of Islam. he asked for Imam Hussain's oath of allegiance in order to obtain reputation in society. Imam Hussain refused to do so in order to save the society from a cruel monarch. Therefore Yazid equipped his army to kill Hussain and his family . Yazid's army besieged Hussain and his family members in Karbala desert in Iraq .The army didn't let them drink water for 3 days. But Hussain, his beloved brother Abbas and his companions didn't surrender and kept fighting while they were thirsty. They were all martyred but their resistance disclosed the real face of Yazid and defeated him finally. We still mourn and commemorate them after 1400 years. because Imam Hussain and his 72 companions were brave men who fought evil for justice .Brave men belong to all times and all ages. May God bless them
Glad I got to visit this place before it closed down each summer until 2021💔 Although it’s busy and probably over shot, it’s still one of the prettiest and easiest places to access in Canada (IMO). See you in a couple years✌🏻 Photo taken by @locke.nes
The best way to explain the fall foliage on the east coast would be to imagine thousands of trees everywhere you look, every turn you take and road you drive... and to now imagine them all bright orange, yellow and red🧡🍂🍁 Coming from the west coast, this blew my mind.
