"We're the Heart of California", my friend proudly exclaims about her hometown. Madera, Ca--almost 2 hours south of Stockton--is smack dab in the center, earning its title as the heart of our state. Just 20 minutes from @rinavampire 's home is Hensley Lake, where we hiked yesterday. We even took a picnic blanket and enjoyed burritos kept warm in her coffee thermos (holy shit best hack ever!) And adorable heart shaped tortilla chips. We hiked just under 5 miles, and only saw a single person (wearing an umbrella hat that Josie was not a fan of 😂) It was a good ass day, I can't wait for the next one, hopefully with the complete trio. ❤🖤💜

Where are my South Lake Tahoe Hikerbabes? 🙋♀️☀️🗻
Excited to open a chapter. Such a beautiful area to explore! 😊🌲🥾💚
"My name is Kim Orta. @nurse911kim I have 3 adult kids and one grandbaby on the way. I was born in Washington state but grew up in Orange County and San Diego County. I love being outdoors, whether it is camping, hiking, surfing, kayaking, or SUP. Nature is my passion! Fortunately, I was able to relocate to South Lake Tahoe to live the outdoor life and do my favorite activity: hiking.
Got to get out to enjoy the sunshine with friends this weekend. We were 0/2 on doing the hike we started out to do, but both ‘mistaken’ trails were perfect. Thankful for long weekends and easy going friends. •
Manoa Falls in Oahu, Hawaii. The hike leading up is just as beautiful as the waterfall itself! The waterfall is 150ft tall and it's a 1.7 mile hike out & back. Located in the most beautiful jungle, dense trees, but very accessible & clear trails!
ONE MONTH from today I’ll be flying to Tucson for my 800 mile/45 day-ish solo thru-hike 😝 My palms are sweaty. Knees weak. My arms are heavy. And yes, I could very well vomit mom’s spaghetti. Rapping wasn’t in the plan for this post, but hey here we are..
Today also marks the start of my “fasting” period. My strength and ultimate success (God willing) calls for a pure and clear head space. So, gotta ditch the distractions! Nothing drastic or cold turkey, just mindfully moderated. This includes more/less screen-time and social media, alcohol, praying, being still, reading, strict food and exercise plan (pizza and bicep curls to lift said pizza to my face hole). This is gonna be gr8. Good talk. Cheers 🍻...I mean, cheers 🥤
