sarahmclaughlin Beautifully said. ReGram from @herbivoreclothing: This is Cecil the lion. If you don't know the story please look it up and come back. It's sad. If you eat animal products (which I did for most of my life) but you are saddened by the killing of this beautiful lion, please know this: it is not a huge step to be saddened by the death of the animal on your plate in the same way you were saddened by the death of Cecil. The animal on your plate wanted to live as much as Cecil. The death of the animal on your plate was as unnecessary as the death of Cecil. If you are sad about Cecil, do one thing for him and all animals: the next time you sit down to eat an animal, take 30 seconds and consider their life and their death. Just 30 seconds. Think about what they wanted for themselves. Think about how 5 minutes after you eat them, you will have forgotten them. But that was their life. The whole deal. You bought their body, ate it, forgot them forever. But they were once alive like Cecil and the injustice of his death is no less than the injustice of theirs. You could pick something else to eat next time. You could pick something just as delicious but without all this moral hardship and sadness. If you don't know how or are scared or you need help please get in touch with us because we will help you. Cecil is gone. But you can save other animals starting with your next meal. We would love to help you work on that please don't be shy about getting in touch. #vegan #regramapp 57min

sarahmclaughlin Mornings on the coast that view should be the ocean but instead it's a blanket of fog and I'm not sure I mind. So nice to have fog after weeks in the southwest. #westcoast #favoriteplaces #vegansofig #plantpowered #plantbased #dairyfreelife 2h

sarahmclaughlin Tofu scramble at a great little organic restaurant. Their menu was about 75% veg so there were a lot of choices. #vegansofig #whatveganseat #plantbased #plantpowered #noanimalsharmed #dairyfreelife #plantprotein 18h

sarahmclaughlin Sweet snack in Carmel, CA after a long uphill walk from the beach. I was happy to find vegan cookies!! Most coffee shops have no vegan baked goods. #vegansofig #plantbased #plantpowered #whatveganseat #carmelca #dairyfreelife #vegantreats #noanimalsharmed 21h

sarahmclaughlin When we entered Zion National Park we saw about 20 big horned sheep on the cliffs and a couple crossing the street. It was really amazing to see so many up close! #zionpark #nationalparks #supporttheparks #earthlings #animalfriends #bighornedsheep #hikingtrails 23h

sarahmclaughlin "Go outside. Don't tell anyone and don't bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to notice. Don't try to get anything out of it, because you won't. Don't try to make use of it, because you can't. And that's the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have and realize that is enough to be happy. There's a whole world out there, right outside your window. You'd be a fool to miss it." -Charlotte Eriksson - except I would probably leave a note just in case #roadtripping #exploring #nationalparks #hikingtrails 1d

sarahmclaughlin Chiricahua When we hiked there we arrived early in the morning when fog was still curled around the rocks. We were able to hike most of the trail without anyone else around. The rock formations here are not to be missed. Hopefully everyone can make it here someday. #hikingtrails #roadtripping #nationalparks #chiricahua #supporttheparks #vegansofig 2d

sarahmclaughlin Back in CA and headed for Monterey. A little bit sad this road trip is nearing end but I'm also just glad I got to spend an amazing two and a half weeks with my mom and my brother visiting some of this countries most beautiful areas. As my mom said when we were planning this trip, "there's not always a good time to pack up and travel so sometimes you just have to make time for it and do it." This trip also inspired me to set a new goal 🏼to visit all the national parks and I can't wait to get out on a hiking trail again. #vegansofig #roadtripping #hikingtrails #arizonawildlife #nationalparks #supporttheparks 2d

sarahmclaughlin This morning hiking the Narrows calf to knee deep in water. Absolutely beautiful. Next time we'll come back prepared to go all the way. By the time we hiked up to the lower pool in the canyon on a different hike later in the day the heat was almost unbearable and we were all ready to jump back in the narrows. Zion was my favorite park we visited by far. #zionpark #nationalpark #supporttheparks #roadtripping #exploring #hikingtrails #thenarrows 3d

sarahmclaughlin Thai food before we head for Zion. We've done pretty good not eating out on this trip and making all of our own food. A big money saver for sure. But today we decided that Thai food sounded better than almond butter and jam. #vegansofig #thaifood #whatveganseat #eatmoretofu #spicytofu #arizona #noanimalsharmed 4d

sarahmclaughlin Explored Antelope Canyon this morning. Better pictures to come! So amazingly beautiful. No wonder it's one of the most heavily photographed areas in the world. It is on the Navajo reservation so you need a guide to go through it. #antelopecanyon #roadtripping #exploring #arizona #plantpowered #mothernatureisamazing 4d

sarahmclaughlin Petrified wood at Petrified Forest national park. It's pretty incredible to see the gigantic fallen trees fossilized into a myriad of colors. #petrifiedforest #roadtripping #arizona #supporttheparks #nationalparks #exploring 4d
