Welcome to Planet Mars, everyone. There is water and life.

It’s been five years since I moved across the country and every once in a while I have to pinch myself and remind myself that yes, this is really my life.
I can’t believe I went 25 years not knowing where my true happy place was!
There is truly nothing better than being in the mountains, among the wildflowers in the summertime.
It’s literally what dreams are made of.
Getting ready to celebrate 11 years of marriage with that guy up there carrying my lunch. 🥪💗Hello from Central Oregon! Anyone have tried and true remedies/secrets to quickly healing a blister? Poor Slaed has a wicked one from this hike (clearly it was worth it though!), and I’m afraid we may have to press pause on our hiking adventures for a bit.
Seems like COVID-19 is here to stay for awhile, so I built a socially isolated home on the beach 😂🏕🏠🌲🌊 What do you think—is it weatherproof? Can it handle a Canadian winter, or should I plan to return to a tropical country? 🙃

Wednesday night church of sailing (I’m not religious...except sailing)
We camped at 12k feet this night.. I did everything I could to capture the beauty I saw in real life. This is one of my favorite milky way pictures i’ve taken so far.. I feel it captures what my life has been mostly made up of lately.
If you haven’t noticed, my photos have shifted the last couple months.. I know it’s been a lot of car and camping stuff.. and less hiking, canyons, backpacking etc..
For those that don’t know me personally, I have had pretty bad lower back pain that has gotten significantly worse over the last 6 months. It has been borderline crippling for me a lot of days. It has been a pretty discouraging situation to overcome mentally.. going from hiking 6 days a week along with lifting weights 5 days a week.. to barely being able to get out of bed in the morning..
I know it could be a lot worse..
and those of you with injuries can relate with how depressing it feels sometimes..
In turn, I have grown more and more in love with my truck @toyotausa and the places it can take me while I can’t physically take myself. I am so thankful for the people i’ve met because of it and all the breathtakingly gorgeous places i’ve gotten to see because of it. Sure, it’s just an object, a vehicle, but to me it’s been so much more than that, it’s been a real life saver, a way out, a way to live my life and see new things with my best friend. A way to overcome some of my fears. My peace.
