Just had a great meeting with Jay from @inkblotfilms looking at the animation in my intro & outro for the videos on my @youtube channel.
We were definitely on the same wave length. And I'm very excited to see how it will all turn out.
Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel, ready for when it get released.
#Sponsored — The last thing you need when you’re on a road trip adventure, especially in the middle of nowhere, is to somehow end up with a dead battery. We needed a jump once this summer in our brand new van ... from leaving the a/c and entertainment on for the kids on a super hot day while we were waiting for a ferry.. and since then we knew we had to make sure we had a convenient option with us at all times. Now we do not have to worry about being stranded alone with a dead battery with our NOCO Boost Jump Starter. It is Ultra-portable, rugged, spark-proof, water resistant & dust-proof. It is able to Jump Start your dead battery in just seconds, with no help needed. It gives us peace of mind when are are driving alone and with the kids. Safety first! 🔹

Some people believe the myth that indoor tanning is safer than tanning outdoors, but we’re here to tell you that is FALSE! All UV exposure, from a tanning bed or the sun, damages your skin and increases your risk of skin cancer.

While hiking in the San Juan’s this week I noticed a concerning lack of preparedness in many of the hikers on the Ice Lake’s trail, something I have seen a few other times in RMNP and on 14ers. After seeing multiple groups of people pass by a sign detailing the amount of water to take based on planned mileage carrying no water and wearing shoes such as Vans, Converse, or light weight sneakers I began to wonder what was creating such lack of safety or preparation. The Ice Lakes trail crosses two major avalanche debris fields, four stream crossings, and one section of loose rock that is not quite scrambling but definitely is not sturdy. It’s only a class 1, but has a gain of 2,670 ft.
Ice Lake is one of the most popular hikes in Colorado, especially after becoming Instagram famous. As we hiked I wondered if its newfound fame attributed to people’s lack of preparation on the trail. I passed multiple people and overheard them saying they did not think it would be so difficult. I began to wonder, do we perceive places we see on Instagram as generally easy to get to? Do we assume that if it has gone viral it’s more attainable? Or is lack of education causing lack of awareness and preparation?
During the final push to the lower lake we passed three young men, all of whom where wearing lightweight running shoes with no traction. This is the part of the trail where rock becomes loose. While descending traction and careful foot placement is extremely important. The last young man missed the foot hold, lost traction and slid along the jagged boulder. On the way down we walked behind a nice couple visiting the US. The woman was wearing comfortable looking tennis shoes. While we descended on a steeper section of the trail her foot landed on a rock, her other foot lost traction and all of her weight landed on the foot on the rock. The ankle gave out, twisted, made a pop noise and she collapsed on the side of the trail. She made it back to the car, but was clearly in a lot of pain.
Hiking at alpine is not something to take lightly. The mountains are not forgiving, storms move quickly and altitude sickness is very real. Enjoy our mountains, but please do so safety.

Be careful out there! Storms rolled in this evening with tornado warnings and one tornado confirmed on the ground just west of us. They were seeing some concerning rotation near us but luckily nothing came of it. 😰🙏🏼 Our warnings have now expired thankfully and I pray this line of storms weakens in strength. Keep your eye on the sky my midwestern friends. #staysafe
