This was such a great hike! It’s definitely a new favorite! It went along a river and was shaded the entire time, was steep enough to get in an awesome workout, and had a rope swing! I would highly recommend it! #hikeutah#beutahful#utahsummer#argboyshike
We took Chelsea and the beans on their first hike, since they've been home, to Gloria Falls up Little Cottonwood Canyon. This 2.3 mile hike was super simple with a gradual incline that didn't kill me. The elevation gain was only 547 feet. This trail has some spectacular views, and a few fun little waterfalls and bridges to cross along the way. There's a bridge near the beginning of the hike that was supplemented with some loose logs to get across the raging river, so be mindful of that if you're not sure you can balance well enough to cross it. The trail still had some snow patches, which the beans loved, but the melting run off made parts of the trail wet and muddy. Overall, it wasn't bad at all. The runoff that ran in the middle of the trail was shallow enough to walk through without submerging your shoes. The trail was annoyingly rocky, but it was well worth the hike! I'd definitely do it again. We were gifted with an amazing breeze the entire way, so it wasn't too hot, even though we went mid-day when it was in the mid to upper 80's.
🇺🇸 In a time where up is down, down is up, and it’s impossible to know what is real and what is fake... nature stays true!!! If you want to get away, most National parks are open to the public once again.
Bryce Canyon National Park is quite possibly the most awe-inspiring place I’ve ever visited.
📍Have you ever visited a U.S. National Park? If so... where?
🇺🇸 En una época de la historia en que arriba está abajo, abajo está arriba y es imposible saber qué es real y qué es falso ... la naturaleza se mantiene verdad ! Si deseas escapar, la mayoría de los parques nacionales están abiertos al público ahora mismo en EEUU 🇺🇸. El Parque Nacional Bryce Canyon es posiblemente el lugar más impresionante que he visitado en el mundo. 📍 Alguna vez has visitado un parque nacional ? ¿Cuál parque? #Utah#visitUtah#BryceCanyon#beutahful
Upper Silver Lake backpacking trip part 2! We got up to the lake, set up a tent, watched the sunset and then watched a movie in the dark tent! It was such a blast and hope this becomes a new Rodee tradition. In the morning we woke up and hiked around the lake and across the glacier before cleaning up and heading back down the mountian. #beUtahful#hikingwiththerodees#mygirls#rodeefam
If we let them, our struggles can debilitate us and make us think we failed and might as well stop trying. Or if we let them, our struggles can allow us to develop what will ultimately become our strengths. We can adapt. We can evolve.
I've made all of the mistakes and bought into all of the fads and myths and lies. I want you to understand that making mistakes is all part of the process, and it will lead you to getting better. Without them, I wouldn't be where I am today.
Wildflowers. During my walking I tried to find the words to define the mental blocks I have hit in the last couple weeks. A memory came to me as I took the time to appreciate the wildflowers. One of my first therapy sessions after being diagnosed with PTSD my therapist told me I was a survivor, she then wanted me to stand in a power stance and say, “I am a survivor.” I couldn’t do it, instead I curled up in a ball, cried, and retched. Today, as I remembered this moment, I realized that I still feel shame for being a survivor. I feel shame for having lived my life in survival mode. I feel shame that I don’t know how to leave survival mode behind. I have done so much work to heal and move forward that these emotions and mental blocks really caught me off guard. Today these wildflowers helped me contemplate the beauty in surviving a harsh environment. So today I am committing to try and be grateful for being a survivor so that I can let go, so that I can release what is holding me back, and so that I can move forward with more confidence. #beUTAHful#PTSD#mentalhealthawareness#survivor#anxiety#mentalhealthjourney#healthjourney#walking#itsokaynottobeokay#authenticlivingwithjessie

Let’s always live life the same way we started it. Seeking for adventure. @tenasiam
Nossa aventura desse fim de semana foi no deserto, foi uma experiência nova e muito divertida. O desafio era pilotar até o topo das dunas de areia que é muito íngreme, muitos não conseguem e até capotam no meio do caminho mas muitos conseguem chegar até o topo, é contagiante e muito legal! 🤩 Vale muito a pena o passeio
🇺🇸 Our adventure this weekend was on the desert and It was super fun! 😃 The challenge is to drive to the top of the dunes which is very high, many fall halfway but a lot of drivers get to the top and it’s super awesome to watch
Exploring in the poppies...
“Of all the wonderful things in the wonderful universe of God, nothing seems to me more surprising than the planting of a seed in the blank earth and the result thereof. Take that Poppy seed, for instance: it lies in your palm, the merest atom of matter, hardly visible, a speck, a pin's point in bulk, but within it is imprisoned a spirit of beauty ineffable, which will break its bonds and emerge from the dark ground and blossom in a splendor so dazzling as to baffle all powers of description.”~Celia Thaxter
Nature literally has the power to heal. By slowing down and letting yourself notice the smell, sound, and feel of nature you become present, aware, and often experience less stress. You become unbusy. ~ Lettie Stratton .
9 healing trail miles this morning. Thanks for the peace Mother Nature, I needed that ✌🏼💚
