kodakkristen What did we do when we're 2,000 miles away from family for thanksgiving ? Drove to the mountains for a day of skinning and snowshoeing to the top of white pass, and got in a fun run down on the boards! #snowdance #winterwonderland #pnwonderland #dareyourself #getoutstayout #earnyourturns #splitboard #snowboard #whitepass #washington #gonarly #cliffbar #shotblock #arcteryx #marmot #dirtbarbie #oakleywomen #addidasoutdoor #rei1440project #livebetterstories 2mon

And once man can no longer walk with beauty or wonder at nature, his spirit will wither and his sustenance be wasted" - President Lyndon B.

kodakkristen Flashback to my very first 14ner - Longs peak via Keplinger's Coulier aka the historic climb that John Wesley Powell took in 1868 making the first known ascent of longs peak. This route is an adventure where bushwhacking, scrambling through a boulder field (mostly the size of buses), a swarm of high alpine Mosquitos and exposed cliffs/ scree fields await! We definitely will be back again soon. #getoutside #DirtBarbie#dirtbarbieadventures #gopro #goalzero 4mon

kodakkristen Mr. Bubbles-Well worth the 13 miles to get to this lovely backcountry hot spring(please respect it if you go)! It's also well worth the 20 miles and 3 river forges after that follow.. For us this trip took us 34 hrs to complete and 23 of those miles being done on our second day. #exploremore #yellowstone #DirtBarbie #dirtbarbieadventures @dirtbarbieadventures @gopro @goalzero #betheadventure #gopro3 #gopro #leavenotrace #momentsmakethejourney #gznation #rei1440project #reimemberstories #etktribe #gognarly #getoutstayout #getoutside #gearupgetout #breakforadventure #KammokMOB #theroolife 6mon

kodakkristen Paint pots of Yellowstone! Spent the whole day being in the rain taking in all the sites while the park was practically empty, such a perfect day before the big 2 day 32 mile backcountry trip through the park. #visityellowstone #respectit @dirtbarbieadventures 6mon

kodakkristen Rain in yellowstone = no people! Seriously getting the out of this world experience/feeling being here. My advice is see the boardwalks and everything that a crowd would normally be at when the weather isn't the best- makes for excellent lighting for photos and who doesn't want the park to themselves?! @dirtbarbieadventures @gopro @goalzero @teva @ethnotekbags @kammok @prana @outdoorresearch @yellowstonenps #yellowstone #mammoth #dirtbarbieadventures #DirtBarbie #rainydays #humanpoweredadventures #getoutside #goalzero #goprogirl #gopro #theroolife #trailtalk #leavenotrace #nature #nopeople #lifewithoutlimits #livebetterstories 6mon

kodakkristen "There are two paths in life: Should and Must. We arrive at this crossroads over and over again. And each time, we get to choose....Should is how others want us to show up in the world — how we’re supposed to think, what we ought to say, what we should or shouldn’t do. It’s the vast array of expectations that others layer upon us. When we choose Should the journey is smooth, the risk is small.

Must is different—there aren’t options and we don’t have a choice.

Must is who we are, what we believe, and what we do when we are alone with our truest, most authentic self. It’s our instincts, our cravings and longings, the things and places and ideas we burn for, the intuition that swells up from somewhere deep inside of us. Must is what happens when we stop conforming to other people’s ideals and start connecting to our own. Because when we choose Must, we are no longer looking for inspiration out there. Instead, we are listening to our calling from within, from some luminous, mysterious place." Written by Elle Luna in her book called, The Crossroads of Should and Must. An excellent read that was sent to me by my dear friend Annie. #choosemust #dirtbarbieadventures #lifewithoutlimits #getoutside #trailtalk #girlsoutside #hohrainforest #letsgohike #wanderthewest #wanderwashington #washington #olympicnationalpark #leavenotrace @dirtbarbieadventures @goalzero @teva #livebetterstories #solarlife #goprogirl #gopro3 @gopro @goparks @kammok #mob #meetthemoment #theroolife

kodakkristen Palouse Falls; formerly known as Aput Aput, meaning "falling water" to the Palouse Indians. "At the end of the last ice age, repeated glacial floods, known as the Missoula Floods, swept across eastern Washington carving out the unique scablands landscape seen today. Amongst the coulees, potholes, buttes, and plateaus, Palouse Falls remains as one of the magnificent and lasting remnants of these glacial floods. It is the only major waterfall left along this thousands of years old glacial flood path." • soaking in all the beauty and history this place has! #getoutstayout #DirtBarbie #dirtbarbieadventures #shirtsonsummit #gopro #explore #palousefalls #washington #pnw #waterfallsofwashington #lifewithoutlimits #livebetterstories #letsgohike #chasingwaterfalls #tnf #theroolife #rei1440project #reimemberstories #rei #wanderthewest #arcteryx @goalzero @gopro @dirtbarbieadventures @kammok @powerpractical @teva @ethnotekbags @discrete @outdoorresearch @prana 10mon

kodakkristen < Finallyyy in my element! > So I've been neglecting my phone, my go pros and well my heart lately. So I broke the routine I've been in (THANK BABY JESUS!) and dusted off the go pros and went to Palouse Falls with P and hiked my little heart out! I don't know how long I'll be in Washington for, more reason to be exploring the pnw as much as I can while I live here! #getoutstayout #solarlife #DirtBarbie #gznation #reimemberstories #rei #gopro #goalzero #teva #livebetterstories #lifewithoutlimits #dirtbarbieadventures #dirtypaws #adventure #palousefalls #washington #pnw #chasingwaterfalls @dirtbarbieadventures @goalzero @gopro @kammok @teva @ethnotekbags @powerpractical @rei #wanderthewest #rei1440project #finallyinmyelement 10mon

kodakkristen So glad I have a beautiful & adventurous Mom!! Today is her day to shine brightly so Happy Birthday mom and thank you for all the love you have poured into my heart, all the words of wisdom you've given me, the tough love at times, to the comforting hugs and kisses that only a mom can give. You've been there every step in my life from playing with Barbies with me- to learning how to do flips in the yard -to giving me boy advice over and over, to me scaling cliff sides and always telling me I'll go far/ to never give up being the biggest motivating force behind me. I love our hikes in Christmas tree pass every year, I love the contagious laughter we both get when were together to where we almost cry. Your my rock, my sanity, my best friend, and the best mother I could of ever asked for. I wish I could be with you on your bday today but I'm there in Texas in spirit, and I'm sending all my love to you today. Happy birthday mom I hope it's the best yet! @dirtbarbieadventures @goalzero @gopro @teva #letsgohike #imissyou #lifewithoutlimits #playtime #solarlife #livebetterstories #gopro 1y

kodakkristen Indian creek- I love your tall mesmerizing canyon walls that allow me to climb the most amazing cracks I've ever felt my hands and body in. But what I love most is watching the sunsets after a day packed full of "battling with the walls" to seal the day up. @dirtbarbieadventures @mountainhardwear @goalzero @gopro @teva @rei #dirtbarbieadventures #solarlife #powerpractical #fueledbyadventure #meetthemoment #wanderthewest #indiancreek #getoutstayout #momentsmakethejourney #livebetterstories http://bit.ly/wanderthewest 1y
