Day 13 - Today started with an easy climb towards the start of our second high pass, Cho La (5420 m / 17,778 ft). This pass is considered the hardest/most dangerous of the Passes due to a decent icy scrambling section on the front side, a glacier crossing with avalanche potential, and a steep, icy decent requiring crampons, and rock fall being a potential on both ascent and descent. After crossing this pass we assumed these warnings were exaggerated, because we had no problems (although without crampons coming down probably would’ve been impossible). However, the day after, we ran into our trail friend Sibella who had two fresh black eyes, which she said she got after a softball size rock fell and hit her under her right eye during the scrambling section. She kept going despite the injury, and despite having to go back down two different times for altitude sickness. Aussies are tougher than nails. #mountain #mountains #sky #blue #hike #hiking #trek #trekking #backpacking #nepal #travel #wanderlust #lonelyplanet #bucketlist #rei1440project #optoutside #wilderness #outdoors #nature #trail #snow #ice #backcountry #altitude #climb #getoutside #wildernessculture
Oh boy: ice, lakes, glaciers, mountains, stars (last night), cold, and crisp mornings. What else do I need?
Castle Rock Lake at Buckhorn State Park was absolutely beautiful today. And so quiet and peaceful.
Springtime really brings out the beauty on this planet we call home. Happy Earth day!
I bet that if this banana slug could talk he would wish you all a happy Earth Day. He’d also like you all to help keep his home clean and healthy 🌎🍌💕 thx
Paddling through Xe Bang Fai River Cave in Laos, one of the largest river caves in the world. There are about 7 rapids you must portage the kayak. This is at the other end of the cave, emerging back into the sunlight after a few hours paddling through a long winding underground river with some spectacular formations, including what is considered to be the largest rim pools ever discovered.
Its pretty remote so visiting requires some planning ahead. Guide coming soon.
Happy Earth Day!
Thankful to enjoy this sunny Sunday walking around on the east side. 🙏🏽
Kiara 🐶 and I celebrated Earth Day with a hike and picked up any trash we saw. Thankfully there wasn't a lot which makes me pretty proud of #SanDimas
Thankful for the earth’s wild places.
Happy 50th birthday (and #EarthDay
😉) to this hot momma right here!!! I don’t think any photo could be more fitting for who you are (and why I admire you): strong, fun, and with a free spirited approach to life. I am so proud to be your daughter and feel so lucky to share a slice of this California adventure with you. Love you mom 💕 #shemovesmountains

Living in Colorado, I am reminded daily how lucky we are to exist on this planet.
Happy Earth Day! (Stay on the trails 😊)

Best gift I got this 2018.💕
Who planted a tree today?! Happy Earth Day Insta🌎
Their memories of growing up will be so different than mine. While I remember walking to the store alone at 5 years old, me and my friends getting in trouble in school and the occasional vacation in Spain and Austria, she'll remember creekside adventures with her little brother, being sworn in as a junior ranger and driving around looking for bears and bisons. Neither is necessarily better, just so very different.
There is no Planet B. There's no dome on the moon. Matt Damon is not out there figuring out how to grow us all some potatoes if we ruin this planet (well, I don't know that for sure). And an inability to understand science is not a valid argument against it. So, what better way to celebrate Earth Day than with a donation to your favorite environmental organization? Or planting a tree? Or picking up trash in your neighborhood? Or giving up single-use plastic? We can do better ya’ll...it starts small.
I see the LIGHT at the end of the TUNNEL of my PATH 😄😄😄
