Hey guys! So, I’ve been working with The Parks Apparel for a while now and have always loved working with them ❤️What’s amazing though is that they’ve recently rebranded as @wonderybrand and they’re all about empowering women in the outdoors through their sustainable clothing. I honestly love what they’ve done with the new brand and I think what they are doing to help empower women in the outdoors is incredible 🙌 
Anyhow, they’ve just launched some new items as well as restocked this super cute mug! Every purchase supports the empowerment of women in the outdoors.

Fall colors are dwindling, but the weather is still nice enough to get the boys outside.

Si hay algo que me apasiona mucho en la vida y en los viajes, son las culturas de cada lugar, las culturas prehispánicas y la conexión que poseían entre ellas. 🙌🏼🍃_

Life has been weird. Between work and dealing with an estate clearing sale and people there and drama with crap, and now moving, I'm just tired. IG has been put on the far back burner, I feel like I'm letting all the shops I work with down with my lack of participation. My dm's are absolutely dead. The only people I talk to are model chat groups and people at work... I feel there's very few reasons keeping me here right now. As of right now I have only photos from 2 weeks ago when I took the dogs out for the purpose of photos?
••
We don't go on grand adventures, we don't have mountains, we hardly have fall colors. We have dead mountain side from fires years ago. There's just not enough time in the day. I feel like all my IG stories are advertising the same three shops. So I see the same things over and over... Which is great for the shops! but yet kind of hella annoying at the same time. Maybe I'm just due for like a month break from IG. Maybe that's what I'll do. Give time for things to settle down and then we'll try it again. So I guess this is bye bye for now.

I’ve been feeling like I need to make a change to something the past few months. I wasn’t sure where in my life or what that meant. I went and looked at houses to move into, I tried staying in a town for awhile. I tried a lot of things, but I think it’s time to keep moving, to pick something new and go for it. Tomorrow I’m going on one of my last trips I’ll do in Washington this year. It’s gonna be cold, snow covered, and a bit of a challenge, but I’m excited for it. After that, a little travels with Charlie, hitting the road to see things, to experience, and to get a better perspective on where I’m at. The seasons change, and so do we all - time for another chapter.

Had an incredible past 24 hours when @bremirynech picked me up from work to take me on my first trip into Lake O’Hara. We just managed to catch sunset on our way into Lake O’Hara which was amazing, check out my story to see the adventure. In my opinion, Lake McArthur completely stole the show this morning. The lake was so still  and the contrast with the snow was so beautiful. What an incredible day!

If it ain’t the beach, its surely the fresh water springs ...my goto place to reflect, relax and recharge.  Yesterday @mgwpro took me to Silver Springs to kayak the river and enjoy the sun shining down on that blue water of every hue imaginable!  She spotted a shipwreck that most probably just paddle right over. You could see the steering wheel of the ship!  If that wasn’t enough we coasted past a hawk perched on the bank and paddled along side an alligator.  But the coolest wildlife sighting I will post tomorrow...so stay tuned!

⛰️ You, me, and the trees. 🌲

This was one of the only photos I took on this trip, and its a trip I'll never forget

We left Edmonton at 9pm headed for Jasper on the long weekend, without a campsite booked ( big whoops, and some foreshadowing ). We arrived to the park gates past midnight, and started  searching for a site. As expected, every single site we passed was booked, but we journeyed onwards along the icefield Parkway.  We arrived at Jonas campground around 2am, found a walk in site, and began packing our gear in. Turns out I brought the wrong tent: A camping trip for 2 with a tent that fits 10+. We setup the tent and were entirely wedged between the trees. We couldn't have fit a bigger tent if we tried. The roomiest campsite there ever was.

Day 63 Marco Polo Sheep

The owner of the homestay is connected with the local NGO Burgut. Through him I got in contact with two rangers of the area of Alichur, where im staying.
The two rangers took me for wildlife spotting and we took off in the 4WD to the valley, about 20 minutes drive over a track in the dry, cold fields. (-2°C)

Halfway the valley we spotted a group of Marco Polo Sheep on the steep hills and stopped the car, got the binoculars out and had a closer look. After that we went further uphill by foot. 
The absolute silence was bizar, sometimes disturbed by the freezing cold wind in my ears.
After about an hour i felt the problems of the altitude… up at around 4500mtr the guide was walking if he just started a marathon and I felt like I just finished a marathon. 
My knees were getting wobbly and I was tripping over rocks as if I had drunk a bottle of vodka. 
I had to stop every 100 mtr to recover, wich gave the guide time to have a look at the mountains to spot an animal. 
Not long after we, I should say, he spotted an Ibex goat. Standing and the ridge of the mountain looking down at us. 
From far up there he had seen us probably way before we spotted him.

To see the Marco Polo Sheep was a great experience. They only live in this part of the world, in this area in Tadjikistan.
We didn't see the snowleopard who lives here too but they are hard to find anyway and for that you need more time. The ranger showed me the photo's of the big cats on his phone from not long ago. 
If you are around Alichur contact the guys @mahanatabaev if you want to see something of this area. They are the local experts as they monitor the local wildlife populations.

I had a great day hiking! .

The last time I was here was back in 2018. I remember that day being really sunny and this time it was overcast with a little drizzle! It’s super cool to see how much the weather affects how these photos turned out! Also, if you zoom in close enough, you can see the individual raindrops! #RMNP
