azblkbelt “It had nothing to do with gear or footwear or the backpacking fads or philosophies of any particular era or even with getting from point A to point B.
It had to do with how it felt to be in the wild. With what it was like to walk for miles with no reason other than to witness the accumulation of trees and meadows, mountains and deserts, streams and rocks, rivers and grasses, sunrises and sunsets. The experience was powerful and fundamental. It seemed to me that it had always felt like this to be a human in the wild, and as long as the wild existed it would always feel this way.” Cheryl Strayed, Wild // I don't know about you, but I read this book and am so excited for the movie to come out next month! #instagramaz #wild #az365 #arizona #gopro #liveunbound #greettheoutdoors #arizonahighways #environmentaz #epictrails #hikearizona #igersphx #igersaz #igerstucson #keepitwild #neverstopexploring #shareyourparadise #outsideisfree #outdoorwoman #rei1440project #thewesterncollective #thegreatsw #withoutwalls

azblkbelt Another picture from the hike this morning. Even after 10 years of living in Arizona, I still find it hard to believe that there is still more beauty left to be explored than I have years left to live. #instagramaz #OutsideIsFree #igersphx #az365 #arizona #azcentral #azhiking #environmentaz #explorearizona #divine_deserts #lifeisatrail #livefree #neverstopexploring #instagood #rei1440project #reflection #shareyourparadise #thegreatsw #thewesterncollective #wearealladventurers #withoutwalls 4d

azblkbelt “The restlessness and the longing, like the longing that is in the whistle of a faraway train. Except that the longing isn't really in the whistle—it is in you.” Meindert DeJong #jj_forum_1006 #train #traintracks #railroad #instagramaz #igersaz #az365 #arizona #williamsaz #love #greettheoutdoors #withoutwalls #environmentaz #explorearizona #thewesterncollective #thegreatsw #rei1440project 5d

azblkbelt Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.
