Northern California is so under rated on the PCT. It doesn’t have the excitement of the desert when you have just begun the trail, the grandeur of the Sierra, or the sheer wild and awe inspiring scenery of Washington. It may at times be hot, buggy, and on fire. But for me Northern California is where you really get to know people. Often times it’s where you meet the people that you will eventually finish the trail with or really connect with those you’ve known for awhile. This year I found a deeper connection with my hiking partner @projectmove_ who I hiked the entire trail with. We never planned to hike the whole trail together but I’m not sure I could have asked for a better hiking companion. It’s also where I got to know @stretchoutdoors who I hiked with from Mount Shasta to the border. These guys were incredible hiking partners and incredible people. They kept me sane and focused. I’m forever grateful for the company and the experiences that we shared together.

CASTING CALL for an exciting new Online TV series (and it’s not just for the cute and cuddly baby elephant seals in Antarctica)... 🤣 I am looking for aspiring travelers, innovators, and creators with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to travel with me and experience the world like never before 🌎 As you travel the world, you’ll immerse yourself in different cultures, visit new places, try exotic foods, and learn about ideation, innovation, and impact from people all around the globe. So what are you waiting for? Apply now with the Link in Bio, and I wish you the best of luck! 😃 Taking all and every question in the comments below! Note: These little baby elephant seals came up to me as I was sitting on the beach in Antarctica photographing penguins jumping out of the water. They are hungry and are looking to nurse, as their mothers left just a few weeks back to go to the ocean to find food. Baby elephant seals are the only seals that you can allow to get even slightly close to you in Antarctica, (and you should never approach them). #antarctica #southgeorgia #falklandislands #castingcall @acanelaexpeditions #elephantseals

Peru has been a blast. We could immediately see the vibrant culture when we flew into Cusco and were not disappointed. We toured the city a bit and then set off on 5 days in the Andes on the Salkantay trek, finnishing at Machu Picchu. We had an epic crew, exceptional guide, and the whole experience really came together. So much to share from this adventure, took a few days to reflect and enjoy what we've been upto but more views like these coming soon! . . . . #earthofficial #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #sonyalpha #alphacollective #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #wonderful_places #earthpix #artofvisuals #optoutside #bpmag #TheGlobeWanderer #discoverearth #keepitwild #lifeofadventure #camp4pix #natgeoadventure #huckleberry #exploremore #tentree #greatnorthcollective #mindthemountains #rei1440project #peru #perutravel #lagunahumantay #salkantaytrek #machupicchu

Any excuse to dig up some bittersweet moments from my PCT 2017 archive. Yesterday was international mountain day and today I am missing the high sierra extra hard... One foot in front of the other for 4.5 months straight. Eat, sleep, walk, repeat — it really was that simple and it really was that great. This place is calling my heart again and I may just have to go pay a visit sometime next year! ⛏

This summer, I backpacked almost every other weekend. Each trip covered thousands of feet in elevation gain, and miles upon miles of alpine terrain. One trip, my pack weight over 40 lbs due to the need to carry gear for friends who were hurt. I hiked in 60 mph winds, post-holed through late season snow, and crossed a rushing waist-high river during a thunderstorm. And I did all this, with a full face of makeup – brows, bronzer, winged eyeliner and all. - Too often I hear ridicule regarding the wearing of makeup in the outdoors, but contrary to what these critics think – the reality is that no amount of makeup will ever make you any less equipped in the backcountry. In fact, I’d go as far as to say the opposite. You see, being able to express your identity – whichever way you want – is a privilege. And in that privilege, is power. - Once, while working a shelter, I had a young man knock on my door. He was shy, always stood back from the crowd, never made eye contact. I’d talked to him about self-confidence, and he confessed how he never felt good about the skin he was in. I motioned for him to come in and he ducked into the chair behind my desk. “Can I ask you a favor, Miss Noel?” he said sheepishly, “Can you keep it between us?” I nodded. Then he asked me to show him how to wear makeup, and I couldn’t contain my excitement. Two days later I taught him how to line his lips and wing his eyeliner. When we were done, he looked in the mirror and I saw him come alive. Beaming, eyes sparkling, he turned to me and said: “Do you even know how fabulous it feels to wear lipstick?” “I do,” I said, deeply humbled, “I really do.” - There’s privilege in the ability to express ourselves freely. So, when you have the chance, don’t withhold from yourself the things that make you feel the most fabulous. Don’t succumb to pressures that attempt to authorize your aesthetic. When you have the opportunity to express yourself, do so proudly – and don’t deny someone the opportunity to do the same. Just because you don’t prefer one form of expression, doesn’t mean it isn’t the thing that might make another come alive. What I’m trying to say is: you do you boo, but let others do them, too.

"Islands", St Michael's Mount in the Evening, Cornwall, United Kingdom #ansharphoto #england #cornwall #uk #nikon #d850 #nikonnofilter #nikoneurope #myrrs From "Tales of Albion" Fine Art Collection Single shot, focal length 27mm, aperture f/8, shutter speed 118 seconds, ISO 100, tripod, ND 10-stop filter. After leaving the mines, my next destination was St. Michael’s Mount. Of all of Cornwall’s beautiful sites, St. Michael’s is easily the most recognizable. For most of the day, St. Michael’s is a small island, crowned at its crest with a castle dating back centuries. At low tide, however, the island becomes a hill, and visitors can walk to the castle via a granite causeway. Whether you see it at high or low tide, St. Michael’s is breathtaking. The island has a long history and is believed to be one of the earliest locations mentioned in text in all of Western Europe. It might be easy to confuse it with its French counterpart, Mont St. Michel. They are similar in appearance and are named for the same saint. It was because of these similarities that during the Middle Ages, the island was granted to Benedictine monks from Mont St. Michel. The first stone church was built on the island in 1135, and later years brought abbeys and monastic buildings. Given its association with the church and its remove from the mainland, St. Michael’s became a favored destination of pilgrims and the devout. It’s the kind of place that quite naturally gives rise to stories of hauntings and strange phenomena. For many years, sailors have reported hearing whispered words from the water. A ghostly lady in grey is said to wander the hallways of the castle. And there are legends of giants who once inhabited the island and stories of the spirit of an unusually tall man. Remarkably, when a chapel on the island was being renovated in the 1800s, a small stone door was discovered which led to a tiny monastic cell, long forgotten. Inside were the bones of man who measured over seven feet tall, a religious recluse who died and was unwittingly entombed in his cell.

The day was off to a good start⁠ ⁠ a) I hadn't died of oxygen deprivation the night before⁠ b) The weather was looking good and we were going to take a crack and crossing the Thorong La Pass!⁠ ⁠ Departing before sunrise was a must. From what I could gather, if you weren't off the pass by midday when the wind picked up... you were pretty much fucked. ⁠ ⁠ As the trail of headlamps snaked their way up the mountain in darkness. The only sound was the rhythmic crunching of boots on gravel. ⁠ ⁠ At 5400m the effective oxygen is 50% less than sea level and everyone had chosen heavy breathing over speaking. ⁠ ⁠ It started to dawn on me at this point why people are drawn to the mountains. For the next 2 hours everything except the the trail ahead became insignificant. The only thing that mattered was if you could keep putting one foot in front of the other. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #vacationwolf #passionpassport #BPmag #forbestravelguide⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #athomeintheworld #awesomeglobe#beautifuldestinations #beautifulhotels#beautifulplaces #beautifulplanet#bestintravel #bestplacestogo#bestvacations #bestviews#CitiesByCurio #discoverglobe#doyoutravel #exploretheworld#exploretocreate #exploringtheglobe#familytravel #feedyouradventure#finditliveit #getaway#globalcreator #globe_travel⁠ #globelletravels #globetrekker#hotel #iamatraveler⁠ ⁠

Growing up I was always fascinated by animals, & over the years I’ve come to love wildlife even more. Visiting this elephant sanctuary in Sumatra, Indonesia is still to this day one of my favorite animal encounters EVER. Elephants are more friendly than you would expect for being so GIANT. 🐘 🐘 🐘 I choose to be involved with many incredible wildlife projects around the world - like this elephant sanctuary in Sumatra (where Elephant habitats are protected from farmers and palm plantations that are deforesting the surrounding jungles). I’m passionate about keeping endangered species on earth for years to come. Before you do any animal encounter, make sure that it has a positive (not negative) impact on the community ❤️.

I . Can't wait for more snow hikes this winter!! . This photo is from Memorial Day weekend earlier this year. Driving up the day prior there was no snow on this mountain. But a dusting overnight made for a springtime white wonderland. Starting the hike that morning it was so foggy, we didn't think we would be able to get a view of Mount Shasta, but about 2/3 of the way up, the mountain gods smiled on us and parted the clouds. We thought it might be our only photo op so we stopped and took as many pictures as possible until the clouds rolled back in. One of my favorite hikes to date 😊 What's your favorite winter mountain hike? I'd love to add more to my bucket list 😎 . 📷: @sunslastphase thank you for always getting the best shots 😉 . #internationalmountainday #blackbutte #mtshasta #snowhiking

TARARUA JUMBO CIRCUIT |DAY 1| I went for a long walk a month or so ago with 7 friends, which was more than I ever thought would say yes. By evening we hurtled along a gravel road to the trailhead, the clouds just managed to sprinkle. 8 colourful rain jackets went on, like a hokey kids band. Then we walked. . It smelt like New Zealand. Like mud & damp, ferns & green (one of the only colours you can smell). The rain turned to mist, the light leaked from the sky & I took a deep breath like I had been holding it for the last 6 months. The trail was snaked with roots / scattered with rocks. Someone told me once that the roots stay so close to the top of the ground, jutting out as they do, because New Zealand soil is so nutritious there is no need for them to reach any deeper. I don’t know if it is true, but I like to say it is. . The light gave way to the dark blue that melts into night & soon after the hut rose out of a clearing from the depths of the forest. We left our muddy shoes on the porch, cooked dinner in the red setting & tried / failed to get the damp kindling to catch fire in the stove. We warmed it with our laughter instead, snorting coalescing with the night. . When the sky collected the stars & scattered them across the sky, we retired to rows of wooden bunks lined with squeaky latex mattresses. The dark held us tight like a promise while I lay there thinking about the year & everything it had revealed. . I share what I write in the hope that others will feel less alone in this strange disconnected world. Perhaps those of you who understand exactly what I mean by that feel that from my words. I hope you do. I feel it in the words of others too. Sometimes it’s so powerful, that knowledge of being connected to each other, it’s like a punch to my chest that knocks the wind out of me. Those who learnt they could only rely on themselves seem to need community the most. . But that night I felt a part of something again & it's such a simple thing. The cool dark, the glow of the moon through the window, 8 beating hearts and a whole ass trail to savour.
