As I sat below the towering falls getting drenched, I was still able to enjoy a moment of serenity. #idaho#waterfallwednesday

North Idaho Night Sky...
Shot from the summit of Thompson Pass (on the Idaho/Montana border) last week. As we were setting up, we had a chance to see the ISS and Neowise in the twilight sky. When night finally came, the stars alone provided enough light to get around.
This is a Tracked and Blended shot with a 4-minute tracked exposure of the sky and a 2 minute exposure of the foreground ( helped with a little flashlight action).
“Norton Hears a WHEW” 😳
Aw, the classic children’s tale where some chick gets started hiking a wee-bit too late but is propelled onward by an unstable mixture of frenzy & stubbornness.
And along the way she discovers that neither of those two propellants have been scientifically found to reduce stout elevation gain in any way.
And now she just wants a cocktail.
But alas, she endures, and upon reaching the lake, lets out a wheezy exclamation. Out of amazement? Or was it simply her body’s attempt at survival?
We may never know. But legend has it Norton Lake was so glorious, she vowed to return - earlier in the day (& without the taste of blood.)
For sweet Idaho gear (and not one single story, I promise), visit:

Yesterday's small adventure took us to Stanley Lake. The view of the Sawtooths is always breathtaking.
Quitting was just my thing! Usually, I would give up before I even gave myself a chance to start. Self-doubt and fear of failure would override any dream or aspiration I had. Making jewelry, going to the post office, managing my depression, eating healthy, learning to snowboard. I quit more times than I can count. Resulting in less and less trust in myself. ⠀⠀
A few years ago I found a random girl from Cali on social media. She was living her dream life, consistently crushing her health//wellness goals, and showing up as her genuine true self. If she said she was going to do something- she did it. She was glowing & I wanted that. ⠀⠀
Coaching gave me a reason to show up for myself. This community provided the accountability & support I didn’t know I needed. Over the last three years I’ve proven to myself that I CAN do ANYTHING I set my mind to. I have the resources and the network of support to help me. Now, I’ll show you how. 😘⠀⠀
This Friday, I’ll be sharing a little sneak peek into what I do as a coach and how it transformed my entire world. Just a little video info session! Send me a message or drop a comment if you’re interested in learning about my story & more.

This place belongs to the Shoshone and Bannock tribes.
Cheers to Idahome!! 🥂
(Because if we’re going to #stayhome and drink wine on our porches, it might as well still feel outdoorsy.)
Love that many of you have been able to visit spots during this social distancing time that you’ve only talked about seeing! Let’s remember to treat these places with tremendous respect! And always pack out more than you pack in. 💙

Massacre Rocks State Park is also known as the "Gate of Death" because of the fear emigrants had when traveling through the narrow passageways here of ambushes by Native Americans. Now, it's a perfect spot to watch the sunset. I think it's so important to remember the history that places like this have.
Five days, 1600 miles, three states, and so much shenanigans. A huge, I mean huge shout out to @cdcphotography88 for one epic workshop around Southern Idaho and Wyoming. Further kudos to @karen.leoni, @jefduro, & @jessy_weitman for putting up with my sharp wit and questionable sense of humor. You guys made this one for the ages. So many photo’s to edit, so many.
