Need an easy hike with a killer reward? Wapta Falls never disappoints. Fern and I were very satisfied with our short stroll with a refreshing cool off from this misty view point.

I enjoyed listening to @kexp today and Alan Watts too.

Nature is hella hecka wiggly Alan, you're right.

This is Japanese Ceremonial Tea 
It's good on a cold day
See, our problem is we can't really know how to stop, we've got something started and we see it going in the wrong direction
And I think the difference is
[To borrow an old Chinese saying]
That when the wrong man uses the right means, the right means work in the wrong way.
Now there is something wrong with the way we think, and while that is there, everything we do will be a mess

Now what is it that's wrong?
Now as far as I can see, the basic mistake is that we've invented this wonderful system of language and calculation and that it is at once too simple to deal with the complexities in the world
And also we are liable to confuse that system of simples with the world itself just as say, we confuse money with wealth
A lot of people are in business to make money instead of wealth, when they make the money, they don't know what to do

No wonder we feel cut off from everything, alienated – frightened of life and death.
So what has to happen is we have to come back to a view of our own life, which is the way we really are – an organism functioning in terms of the whole environment, with the whole environment.
Instead of this funny little separate personality.
But how are we going to do that?

You can't transform yourself, you can't make yourself sane, you can't make yourself loving, you can't make yourself unselfish.
And yet it is absolutely necessary that we be that way.

If we are going to hand over the direction of nature to nature, it's absolutely necessary.
I'm not going to say what we should do, but simply, that before we think of doing it – in this critical situation, we realize the completely illusionary nature of our beings we think we are.
And with that again, to the beings we really are.
Which includes, all this.

Outside world, no longer left outside

🎶Come run the hidden pine trails in the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you 
And for once, never wonder what they're worth…🎶

This hiking adventure didn’t go as planned at all. First we couldn’t find the right trail head, then every time we felt like we were gaining some momentum we would hit a dead end and after 3 dead ends in a row we called it quits. If we’re being honest NOTHING went as planned this day. Not a single thing. But it was still such an incredible day, we still got to see some amazing views, and we got to explore new places we’ve never been. Maybe sometimes we need for everything to go wrong so we’re forced to just go with the flow to realize everything might be alright. (Ps you can find this awesome tank over at @switchbackchics !)

- Let Nature Heal You - 
Every time I step out in nature it reminds me to be in the now. That everything my mind and heart is racing about is so small. That my god, who created these beautiful places also created me & knows just what he is doing in me. I’m reminded to stop comparing myself to others. All these beautiful places don’t compare themselves to each other, they just are. There are so many beautiful places & opportunities around us. We have to remember to focus on those & look ahead, stop looking at the past. We will never grow and flourish if we stay stuck in the past. I’m so bad about this but everyday I work harder and harder at it. Every time I see the beauty in it and I notice more beauty in everything around me, including myself. ❤️

Don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers! 🌸 This time of year especially, we find ourselves running from one thing to another, trying to maximize everything that Summer has to offer. But it’s important to slow down every once and awhile to take a moment to appreciate the small things in our day that bring us joy #relax #enjoylife #flowergirl

Did you know that most women’s clothing is still designed by men? We’re tired of the “shrink it and pink it” strategy in women’s apparel. We don’t want to pay more for clothing that’s just tighter, flimsier, and less functional (fake pockets — need we say more??). Instead, we demand clothing that’s designed for our anatomy so we can pee when we want to without baring our 🍑’s. And we want huge pockets, quality hardware, and comfortable fabric, too. It’s time to redesign pants by women, for women. And we’re on it. #PantPatriarchy #PeeTheChange #PeeFreely

This is my first time in the US, and I can honesty say that every stop we’ve made on this, slightly unexpected, road trip so far has left me speechless. I can’t believe how varied the landscapes are here and I’m blown away by the scale of everything. I’m enjoying how this huge, vast country is reminding me of how small I am in this magic world, and I’m grateful for the little pockets of stillness, like sitting overlooking this canyon in Zion, watching the sunset with a bottle of cider in hand. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to more moments like this 🙏🏼 Who else has had roadtripping the US on their bucket list?

Nature is not meant to go viral.
⠀⠀
I've stopped specific location geotagging (for a while now) and I’ve made multiple posts about why I decided to do this. But I still get asked for the location of my hikes so I wanted to explain why.

Geotags have PROVEN to have a direct detrimental effect on nature - a place where it is NOT capable of handling large crowds. Don’t believe me? Here are some local examples: Keyhole Hot springs - closed during bear season due to dangerous grizzly activity as a result of irresponsible hikers, Joffre Lake - tons of garbage left behind but they banned dogs to “improve the experience”, Quarry Rock - Rangers now placed a limit of the number of people on the trail. While it’s too late to save these places, what we can do is to try and prevent this from happening to other hikes.

As a photographer, I’m aware of the catch 22: how can I share my outdoor adventures when I might be contributing to the destruction of a place? I want to protect nature but I still want to be able to share the photos of our hikes for people that wouldn’t be able to see it for themselves. This is why I stopped geotagging.
⠀⠀
The @LeaveNoTraceCenter (a centre for outdoor ethics) has urged us to stop tagging specific locations on social media. It’s not about being selfish, but more about "allowing others to do a little research and learn about the area before they arrive."
⠀⠀
I’m sorry if I don’t answer your questions about the location and I hope you all will understand. 
Please stop tagging specific nature locations & spread the message. ❤️

FaceTimed with my grandpa yesterday and he asked if I had gotten a job yet. I was like woah, tbh I’m going to walk away from this verbal attack because I just remembered it’s actually my nap time atm. ttyl.

🥰☀️Den siste uka har vært helt fantastisk værmessig ,
og jeg har vært på mange flotte turer i mellom nattevaktene. Kveldsturen til Mjelle når sola gikk ned i havet, var et syn for øyet, og ungdommene koste seg ekstra i hverandres selskap☀️❤️
Krysser fingrene for at sommeren her nord blir fin! 🙌☀️🤩
