Happy 🌎 Day! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Pictured here is Pumice Plain, a rare and sensitive research site that lends insight on how nature returns from volcanic decimation without human influence. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Earlier this year the U.S. Forest Service threw scientists into a panic when they proposed construction of an access road that would cut through one of the most unique places on Earth. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Fearful for the consequences construction would bring, scientists and conservationists took a stand, convincing the organization to withdraw from their plans on March 28. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ To read more about the importance of Pumice Plain click the link in our profile! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 📸: Pacific Northwest Research Station ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #EarthDay #MtStHelens #MountSaintHelens #MtSaintHelens #volcano #volcanoes #CascadeMountains #CascadeRegion #pnw #pacificnorthwest #pnwonderland #upperleftUSA #westcoastbestcoast #Washington #WashingtonState #EvergreenState #ExploreWashington #WashingtonExplored #VancouverWA #VancouverWashington #VanWA #RidgefieldWA #BattleGroundWA #WoodlandWA #forestservice #USForestService #Science #Scientists #LeaveNoTrace #ReduceReuseRecycle at Mt St Helens National Park

I'm 5 months old today! Mom and Dad got me this new toy to sleep with and I absolutely love him. I'm about 14.8 lbs now! I STILL hate the nail clippers. I've lost most of my baby teeth. Still have a little bit of growing to do, but I'm one smart cookie!

when we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty - john muir ♻️🌎💚 . . . #earthday #earth #earthday2019 #johnmuir #cabininthewoods #cabinlife #cabin #pnw #pnwonderland #WAnder #WAnderlust #theNWadventure #thatPNWlife #evergreenstate #emeraldcity #explorewashington #neverstopexploring #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #modernoutdoors #lifeofadventure #instagood #mtnchicks #happyhealthylife #womenwhoinspire #healthinfluencer #positivityiscontagious #optoutside #liveauthentic

Glassin for gobblers. Came out empty handed but gained lifetime memories. Called in two and waited patiently for them to come thru the brush but they went silent on us and changed paths. . . . . .

What was not possible before was made possible by building trust in the small moments of vulnerability. ⠀ ⠀ Over the past week I have gotten to witness beautiful transformation in the lives of my #ladygang. Months of work that have led to breakthroughs in strength, courage, and commitment. ⠀ ⠀ This kind of life change doesn’t happen over night. You have to lean in to the hard parts. Dust yourself off when you fall down and come back wiser and stronger. You have to ask for help. Be willing to take correction. None of that is possible unless you feel safe within your environment to take risks. ⠀ ⠀ But when you do, my goodness the world better watch out💕✌️ at Issaquah, Washington

We had a short 15 minute ride from the flight line to the 1st Group Compound, however, it was long enough for me to realize how difficult my return home was going to be. I stared out the window, mesmerized by the green landscape and the massive evergreens of Washington. I was so used to seeing the brown, dusty, barren desert of northern Afghanistan. Was it always this green or was I just finally appreciating it? As the bus pulled into the compound I saw Kim standing on the sidewalk. I was nervous, so much had happened in the past seven months, I wondered if we even knew each other anymore. How was I supposed to explain the past seven months to her? How do you explain to someone about seeing bodies burned alive, fearing for your life and wanting to kill men so badly it hurts? I wanted to tell her everything and nothing at the same time. I told my elf that I would not tell her about any of the firefights, especially the last one – I did not want her to carry these burdens too. She had tears in her eyes as we shared a warm embrace – I wanted this moment to last forever. We should have been able to go home, make love (after seven months away this is a top priority) and start the process of getting to know one another again, however, our reunion was cut short. Instead of downloading our bags and getting a quick safety briefing we were required to break down our pallets and inventory all of our gear on a Friday night after being in Afghanistan for seven months. After a few hours of waiting in the parking lot, Kim went home and told me to give her a call when we were done. Around 0200 we finally wrapped up our inventory and went home. On the 15 minute ride home I tried to pack in 7 months of lost time and I suddenly realized how hard coming was going to be. #greenberet #greenberets #sof #specialoperations #gwot #cominghome #redeployment #oef #evergreenstate #longdistancerelationships

Been working so hard to keep this business going, creating work inspired by nature, that I haven’t had much time to actually be out in nature lately. Finding balance is always a challenge, and between running against the clock of this growing baby bump and juggling all the things I’ve taken on, the thing that’s given way has been the very thing that makes me tick. Whenever I’ve had my nose to the grindstone nonstop and start to get this out of balance in some aspect of my life, I tend to get a little anxious. And now that Summer is so close I can taste it, I’m craving a day out in nature so bad I can feel it deep down in my bones. So after an incredibly wonderful (and exhausting) weekend slinging my wares and connecting with my local community, I’ve taken the evening to decompress by looking up my favorite hikes’ most recent trail reports and researching campsite availability for the coming months. And while I’m not sure yet when I’ll be able to get away, planning a day with mama nature feels like the most necessary and essential investment of my time I could make right now. In fact it feels like my well being AND the future of my business absolutely depend on it. ↟↟↟ . . . . — . . #adventuretime #pnwhiking #lakelife #cravingsummer #pnwsummer #mountainsandtrees #pnwgirl #evergreenstate #northwestlove at Rattlesnake Lake
