I’ll never forget this moment. Everyone else was tired and decided to stay in the car. In the quiet moments of early morning with the cold dew nipping at my ankles and the gurgling sounds of the stream in my ears, I got to experience something magical, all by myself. These are the moments I live for, yearn for, and constantly feel driven to discover.
Days just feel better when I have the fresh perspective of first light. There’s something so much easier to those days. I’m thankful to start any day with the perspective of renewal and appreciation for this planet. The stress of anything that comes after just doesn’t seem to carry the same weight. It’s been awhile, I’m ready to get back out.
Today in the workspace, conversations with my good pals @kylekotajarvi @nateinthewild and @autpops focused on winter and the cold, dark seasons that are barreling towards us. Today was the first day that the sun set before 8pm and PSLs came out for the holidays. It’s all happening too fast. But then, I went and looked at some photographs of the mood. At the dark short days with the occasional day of sunshine in between. It’s gonna be all good.
Unforgettable moments in unforgettable places. #whyihike

This summer has been one for the ages. I’m so thankful for partners like @eddiebauer who not only make such incredible gear, but challenge me to get outside more, ask important questions about conservation and preservation, and show their care by backing incredible projects with partners like @americanforests @theheroesproject and @unlikelyhikers
At the end of the day, I wouldn’t be outside if I didn’t believe my experiences couldn’t provide profound appreciation for this planet and life on it. I’m so damn grateful that I get to work with companies who share such an aligned vision.
