General Sherman, the largest tree in the world!
"The General Sherman Tree is the world's largest tree, measured by volume. It stands 275 feet (83 m) tall, and is over 36 feet (11 m) in diameter at the base. Sequoia trunks remain wide high up. Sixty feet above the base, the Sherman Tree is 17.5 feet (5.3 m) in diameter."
In the fourth photo, you can see people near the base of the tree, to give you a better idea of the size!

Yesterday I climbed Redcloud Peak⛰ and Sunshine Peak☀️! This means I have climbed 45 fourteeners🙌(Fourteeners are mountains that are over 14,000 ft in elevation)! The route was 12 miles and the avalanche debris were spectacular to see this year! I have never seen anything like it!

Weekend adventures into the forest with @hbelliott are the perfect way to head into the upcoming week with a clear mind. Oh, and a good night’s sleep after the inevitable wandering tires us out! 😅
Choices are usually decisions motivated by pleasure and pain, and the divided mind acts with the sole purpose of getting “I” into pleasure and out of pain.
But the best pleasures are those for which we do not plan, and the worst part of pain is expecting it and trying to get away from it when it has come.

Here’s to saying “YES” it’s been a little over 2 years now, that I made a conscious decision to start saying “YES” to challenges that I didn’t think I could accomplish to things I feared and most of all to adventure in all forms from rappelling down mountains to scuba diving with sharks.
My latest “YES” moment was to leave an airport in a foreign country with just 8 hours to spare this required an adventure spirit and letting go of fear. Fear that I may miss my connection, fear that I didn’t have enough time, fear that I couldn’t speak the language & just about every imaginable thought that wanted me to stay frozen and not go!
But with a little push and competitive challenge from my adventure mentor @roxannelavin I walked out the doors of the airport in Korea and figured it all out. It was 3 hours RT to the city and having to go through security there was only a couple of very valuable hours to explore. No Worries 🙌🏽 Today I can honestly say I am living my best life just by saying “YES” conquering fears & not putting limitations on myself.
Your always one decision away from a totally different life. Make it count! .
Gloomy days at Moskey Basin ☁️
It's 90degrees and RAINING in Minneapolis tonight. I love watching a good thunderstorm but the newly leaking roof - not so much. .

Oso! Someone shouted that, a few people screamed (which was weird)... and a dozen of us tried to get a picture as the bear made its way down the hillside and through the wildflower meadow. 🐻

This was honestly one of the hardest and scariest hikes I’ve ever done... But it was definitely worth it! 🥾
We took the Rhyd Ddu path which has some beautiful scenic points along the way to the summit... BUT towards the top it can get pretty narrow and steep so if you look down your heart will most likely drop. I know my heart jumped a HUGE beat 😬. The hike was definitely worth it though, as well as the adrenaline rush that came with it🏔
This place will be on my list of fav memories for sure 💫
Who else loves a good hike??

Kaweah River and Tunnel Rock in Sequoia and Kings National Park.
This is a lot higher than it looks the the spot that I'm standing at was really small and hard to climb up, but I'm glad I did because @swbg took this fire pic!!!! The Ukrainian mountains are beautiful!
"They won’t tell you fairytales of how girls can be dangerous and still win. They will only tell you stories where girls are sweet and kind and reject all sin. I guess to them it’s a terrifying thought, a red riding hood who knew exactly what she was doing, when she invited the wild in." 🌏🌴🐉

Backtracking with my latergrams... We almost forgot to take pictures together on the 4th, but woohoo, we remembered at the last minute! These are our "it's just about midnight, we've been up since 4am, and went to bed at 2am" faces. There's no other person in the world I'd rather be deliriously exhausted with. 🎆✨

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” -Jack Kerouac

Fact. I ❤ hair metal! Both the music and the fashion.
I make absolutely no apologies. 🎸
