azblkbelt While each of us must walk this path alone, we need not do so without the empathy, the encouragement and the love of others who are travelling, or have travelled, this terrain—or those who having lived life long and deep and can meet us there, with wisdom and compassion.

azblkbelt My son and his dog Kodi's first hike this morning. My son is 15, and hard to get out from behind a laptop. Score a big win for mom today, everyone had a blast. Now he's talking hiking boots and backpacks and says he's going to work his way up to Havasupai in June. I'm sorry excited. Kodi had to be carried part of the way back, so my arms got a work out also. #instagramaz #az365 #arizona #arizonahiking #gopropaws #goprohero #Superstitionmountains #superstitionwilderness #hike365 #hikingdog #hikingarizona #adventuredog #Siberianhusky #goldengram #goldensofig #goldenretriever #goldensofinstagram #englishcreamgolden #siberiansofig #tracetrek #rei1440project #thegreatsw #themountainiscalling 1d
  •   portraitjunkie Its always a great feeling when we can engage our kids in things we enjoy too. My son is 11 and if he's willing to just ride the neighborhood...I'm on it! You guys have so much beauty surrounding y'all...enjoy those hikes. 😀 1d
  •   azblkbelt @portraitjunkie I can't get him on a bike yet but hoping eventually that will happen!! 1d
  •   portraitjunkie All at his pace. I pushed my son to hard a couple years ago...he did not enjoy it. Now its all at his pace with treats or maybe even a shotblock along the way and a lot of praise and thanking him for riding with me. A trip to Starbucks on the bike is a great motivation. ;) I always think maybe my son would enjoy it more with other boys his age, just need to get connected with others... 1d

azblkbelt I am starting to think that there are no coincidences in life. Some people wander in and out of your life as you wander in and out of theirs, and all that wandering has a purpose, even if someone caused you harm or made your life miserable, they were there, like it or not, to redirect your path in life that you may have not taken without that push. Sometimes, it doesn’t make sense the short periods of time we get with people, or the outcomes from their choices or ours. I hope to one day see the big picture in this life, to look back and possibly know the path I took was predestined or that I made the right choices, I hate not knowing. But nothing seems too small to be a mistake, not even to me. #instagramaz #igersphx #az365 #arizona #cactus #Superstitionmountains #liveauthentic #neverstopexploring #environmentaz #sunset #cholla #rei1440project #thegreatsw 2d

azblkbelt Need some hike suggestions for the weekend. I promised the dogs a hike on Saturday, and they requested water. Anyone hiked lately and have a good location to share? #igersphx #instagramaz #ilovemydog #ig_goldens #az365 #arizona #adventuredog #gopropaws #goldengram #gloriousgoldens #traildog #goldenretriever #goldengram #goldensofinstagram #liveauthentic #tracetrek 3d

azblkbelt There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.

azblkbelt If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.

azblkbelt Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.

azblkbelt She understands now what she, in all her worry, had forgotten. That even as she hesitates and wavers, even as she thinks too much and moves too cautiously, she doesn't always have to get it right. It's okay to look back, even as you move forward.

azblkbelt One has to be alone, under the sky,
Before everything falls into place and one finds
his or her own place in the midst of it all.
We have to have the humility to realize ourselves as part of nature.

azblkbelt Just finished yesterday planning my return trip back in June and securing days off from@the new job. May be the only week I get off all year but I couldn't think of a better place to spend it. This time hiking down and spending a couple nights down where the creek meets the big Colorado. #havasupai #havasucreek #grandcanyon #az365 #arizona #igersphx #instagramaz #hikingaz #hikingarizona #arizonahiking #hike365 #outdoorwoman #outsideisfree #tracetrek #thegreatsw #thewesterncollective 1w
  •   abswenzo amazing!! I have been reading a guide and planning our 1st hike to Havasupai this spring! You are so inspiring! Best way to spend your vacation- recharging the soul in the outdoors!! You take the most beautiful pictures! 1w
  •   fuzzdmore Tough thing about having a new job is the starting over on vaca accumulation. But if you only get one week, you couldn't pick a more beautiful, soulful spot. It will keep you going all year. Anticipation before and memories of after. Great shot! 1w
  •   jec.mibike1973 Great photo! 1w
  •   azblkbelt @jec.mibike1973 thank you! 1w
  •   azblkbelt @fuzzdmore well I actually accumulate more thane one week but probably not by June! It has kept me going for awhile, I agree and learned plenty from first trip that second will be so much better! 1w
  •   azblkbelt @abswenzo thank you so much!! I choose to go in June because the weather is warmer but not too warm to hike and the water is too cold any earlier. I cannot wait, if you need any help or have any questions let me know! 1w
  •   lakepowelldroner DOPE!!! 7d
