While inadvertently discovering a former WWII Army Depot and bunker town that stored heavy ammo and mustard gas, I was transported back to 1962 when the site was reactivated, only to be phased out again a few years later. The area is frozen in time...tools left on desks, doors open as if someone stepped out for a cigarette break, retro colors and equipment sleepy and decaying. 1962 was also a significant year as the nation learned about the Ole Miss riot. This image is more than a lock. It's history. And quite frankly, I'm saddened that in 2020, it feels far more like 1962 when this lock was meant to keep people out of harm, and not lock people in out of fear of harm...we're better than this, America...we have to be.
WoW! That’s all I can utter right now after hearing what’s happening since I’m off the radar. This is crazy times. I think it’s important to live with virtue!
We’re actually playing the game when it matters most. (Hint: Right now!) I know everyone is willing to act in the presence of fear. (Now what needs to be done?!) I remember the ultimate WHY of it all: Love. (Let’s be kind, present and encouraging!) I’m hopeful and I know our future will be better. (Why? Because we’ll do whatever it takes to make it so. Starting TODAY.)
I’m grateful and I appreciate all the blessings in my life we should all do especially (!) when things are tough. (“God, thank you for blessing me with the gift of…”) I’m so curious and eager to see how the future will unfold and shine a flashlight on what’s working and what needs work. (So… What’s working? What needs work?)
In this toughest times, I hope everyone stay safe.
One more time…
Once a traveller always a traveller!!!! People will not stop traveling but will change the way how they have been travelling till now! Top priorities will be safety and hygiene! Off beat locations, country side, homestays , wildlife etc will see a rise.
Solo Travel is something which I have been doing for sometime now and speaking today on the same!

When we spend time outdoors in the elements of winter, spring, autumn and summer we are exposed to the different seasons, exposure to cold, hot, wet, windy and dry.
We can’t but accept what is delivered on any given day. When we chose to get outdoors and explore under these conditions we can either be uncomfortable or we can prepare, pack or dress appropriately and get out there!
Acceptance is one of the main concepts of Mindfulness. It allows us to understand that we surrender control and when we accept what is, we allow a calmer state of mind.
One of receiving rather than control. Funnily enough when we accept what is, we can control our internal emotional thermostat.
Nature not only teaches us about acceptance but of the interconnectedness of all things.
I personally love hiking in winter. The cool air on my face, the landscape awash with deep vibrant hues and the smells, oh the aroma of nature itself is so calming.
Humans are comfort driven creatures but the seasons provide a great lesson in acceptance, exposure and gratitude.
Are you a winter adventure seeker or do you hibernate?

You cannot love others, until you 100% love yourself. Then you can love others as much as you love yourself.

"Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at Bay. Small acts of kindness and love.”
I actually am at a loss for words about the evil and darkness happening in my own home country right now- even in my own city which id otherwise believed would be able to set an example of true peaceful protesting. I've never posted much about my political views on here but in the wake of yet another atrocious example of police brutality, I have to speak up- the world has got to change and we've got to recognize the racism that is still prevalent in our society. I am against any bit of racism and I recognize just how privledged I am. I'm starting to speak up now and I'm sorry I haven't sooner. Friends, POC, I will do better and I will speak up against racism. .
On a positive note because I can't help it, here's an ordinary girl with her 2 sidekicks after a day in the outdoors. I hope one day everyone will be able to enjoy the outdoors equally and without fear.

Climbed 4300’ today to see something new.
These peaks did not disappoint with their grand presentation of mountain ranges in every direction. Their faces sprinkled with the most colorful wildflowers.
Thank you for providing, Mother.

My running buddy 🍃
She keeps me safe when I go running in the trails. Even with bear spray in hand it’s nice to have a constant look out. *
This view never gets old even when the mountains are hidden.
Sometimes you just need to get out in nature and unplug. 🌲

An early rise on the last day of hiking the coastline of Bornholm. Now back in the sleepingback for a little more rest until we begin the last stage from Sandvig to Rønne, where we started four days ago.
Perhaps this is what this season is all about: trusting in the unknowns, finding gold in the little things, trading fear of what’s uncertain for freedom to thrive within - MHN
It was a good day. #GoPro#ExploreAlberta
We usually post our Hiker Spotlight on Sundays, but in light of current events, we believe there are more urgent matters that we have a responsibility to draw attention to.
We stand with the protesters that are fighting the injustices experienced by the African-American community, most recently through the murder of George Floyd, but tracing back centuries from slavery to a broken justice system implemented to treat people of color as less than white people.
As Latinxs, something that we can do on our part and need to is to educate our families and friends. I watched Univision for 2 hours today and only saw videos of the violence and this is the only exposure some people get to what is happening. Explain to your family members why these things are happening. Show them videos of peaceful protests. Tell them about the pain and injustice coming at the hands of those sworn in to protect and serve. It will most likely lead to discomfort and arguments, but if we who know what’s going on, don’t create this discomfort, it won’t lead to progress. Let’s do our part and educate those around us.
What we can do now: protest, be loud, don’t let your voice go unheard.
There are links in our bio to support the ongoing effort.
In November: vote this administration out of the White House.
@sydneyunfiltered had @brendanclementemusic on the @hikingmyfeelings Virtual Campfire today. It was so great to see his bright smile and listen to his stories and music. Big fan of one of the nicest humans I know. 🙏 Check out the replay on the Hiking My Feelings YouTube channel.
