Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. -John Muir #nature #beauty #placetoplay #placetopray #placetoheal #renewstrength #muirhut #johnmuirtrail

In God's wildness lies the hope of the world - the great fresh unblighted, unredeemed wilderness. The galling harness of civilization drops off, and wounds heal ere we are aware. -John Muir #wildness #wilderness #johnmuirtrail

I know that our bodies were made to thrive only in pure air, and the scenes in which pure air is found. -John Muir #cleanair #thrive #johnmuirtrail

“Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you.

Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

The mountains are calling and I must go.” -John Muir #johnmuirtrail #themountainsarecalling #goclimbamountain

Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world! -John Muir #betweentwopines #johnmuirtrail
“No one ever warned me about how heavy the process of letting go is... That somewhere between the loss of it and the letting go of it, you must feel the weight of it.
I’ve always learned to carry the weight. I’ve carried the burdens, the self doubt, the comparisons, the heartache... but lately I’ve been learning to shed a little of the heaviness. I’m learning the value of lightness. I’m learning that there are some things I shouldn’t have to carry up each mountain I climb.
But the process of letting go requires forgiveness. It requires being gentle with yourself. It requires this balance between softness and stubbornness. It requires acceptance, reassurance, and importantly acknowledgement. It requires acknowledging the weight of it and then acknowledging the emptiness without it.
And realize, there are going to be days you’d rather carry the weight than notice the loss of it, and that’s okay. You can’t walk a straight line towards healing. It’s a winded path. It’s going to take time. But you have to trust that someday you’ll sit back and look at the things you’ve shed along the way. You’ll feel lighter, and more whole, simultaneously. And someday you’ll see the beauty in that.”

July 2017 || This past summer I went on my first backpacking trip, hiking a little over 200 Miles on the John Muir Trail out in California. Pretty sure the whole first week I teared up about something because I was so afraid. Thinking maybe this time I had over estimated my abilities. Hiking up giant mountains, through the snow and crossing raging rivers was A LOT. I remember one day after scrambling up rocks covered in snow, with a 40 pound pack, I got to the top and I was done. I didn’t want to go down the other side. But in that moment I realized that no matter how scared I was, there was no way in hell I was turning around and going back where I came from. So the only direction to go was forward and no one else could do it for me, I had to do it for myself. Being out there taught me a lot about myself and my abilities, it was definitely a learning curve. But I learned there is absolutely nothing more that I love than falling asleep under the stars with the sound of rushing water in the distance and waking up to a cool crisp morning, watching the world come to life. There’s just something about packing up your home every morning, putting it on your back, and hiking to a new location. So with that said, I am excited to say that I am about to attempt my second backpacking trip in just 6 days. Hitting the Appalachian Trail starting in Georgia and finding my way to Maine. Hopefully my feet can make it that extra 2,000 Miles 🤗
