Can you spot me? Look closely. .
Spending time at #goosenecksstatepark This spot is not well known but is similar to #horseshoebend It has 2 bends that are well seen from the viewpoint but you need to hike far to get a close up shot. This is definitely a must see if you're #roadtripping the South West.

The climb was steep, the snow was deep, and we avoided falling through giant snow sinkholes!! With this group of strong, beautiful, and supportive hiking babes- we made it to that spectacular view! 🙌🏔
I just really love Utah. I learned a lot about its history this week. Did you know that Utah was the first state where women voted? 🗳 Did you know that later, women’s right to vote got taken away? But they still got it back way before the 19th Amendment was ratified. What a roller coaster.🎢
“The owl has great significance in many cultures, as proven in thousands of petroglyph panels throughout the world. But the owl, as far as treasure room signs go, is unique in that it specifically has the meaning of ‘treasur room’.” - AncientLostTreasures.com. The last image in this sequence is the view you would see while on the trail. The other photos are of the owl from different angles.
I started this hike in a dense fog advisory where I could hardly see 15 ft in front of me. By the time I got to the top, the sun started to peek out from behind the clouds revealing the blue sky and mountains all around.
And to think I almost didn’t go out! #52hikechallenge2020#hike7
Today the desert whispered to me the songs of the wild and filled my soul with joy. ✨

Utah, you never cease to amaze me 😍
I have a bad habit of doing the same hikes over, and over, but I can't help it! Some places you just can't get enough of, you know? This is one of those places. I never feel like I have enough time to explore it all, so I keep going ✨
What hike can you never get enough of?
the most beautiful place I had never heard of 😍 ⠀

We all have fears or obstacles that we’re afraid to face. There’s a few fears that I have/used to have and this is how I’m working on them and how I’ve overcome some. One of mine being heights, yea go figure, someone who’s high up there in the mountains. Such a silly concept. But we’ll get back to that one. For starters, my main fear was to be alone. I used to be afraid to be by myself. There was a point in my life where I was very co dependent. I couldn’t even fathom up a plan on what to do while being alone. I didn’t know how to or even plan an outing by myself. I relied solely on others and none of my own ideas. Such a dreamless life to live right? The only thing I had was running. It was something I could call my own and know I had a point A to point B. Strict regimen, that now sounds like emotional jail, kept me healthy enough in my mind during that time. It wasn’t until I was asked, “What do you like to do for fun/for yourself?” That I realized I didn’t have a set answer. The only thing that came to mind was “run”. Saying it out loud made me realize the only thing I was running from was myself. It was such a wake up call for me. I didn’t even know how to enjoy life without plans being made for me where there’d be others included. Basically, without running from being alone. As foolish as it sounds, I took a solo hike and cried. Mostly because I felt so detached in the worst way. Vulnerable, alone in the middle of what felt like nowhere, with no one to share that moment with or help comfort me other than myself. I continued to do this for weeks, the hikes getting a little longer, my tears dissipating over time. My empty heart that was without any desires began to feel not so empty. I started to feel more present in the world and one with myself. Over time, it’s made me no longer afraid of being on my own. I made a way to face my fear of being alone (emotionally and physically) and turn it into one of my greatest strengths today, and damn proud of it. Now back to heights, I’m working on this one lol. Strawberry Peak Mountaineers Route anyone?

Is it cliche if I said this morning’s sunrise felt like I was in a dream? Classic spot, however sprinkled with a dusting of snow. The contrast between the two was unreal, and the clouds seemed to hold color for what felt like forever.
