Everybody needs a secret relaxation spot. There are many very good places in the Alberta Rockies. You just have to explore to find them. Tag @bowvalleynetwork in your secret happy place if you are willing to share it 😄 #meditationspot #jasper #happyplace #bowvalleynetwork 🤳 @dreamingandwandering

Over the past few months I have been sharing all of the reasons #whyihike in collaboration with @eddiebauer. It’s made me reflect on why I first started hiking (spoiler: to impress a boy), my first backpacking trip wherein my mom and I had perfect weather at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, the friends that I’ve made along the way, the adventures (and misadventures) and all of the bumps and bruises and sliced open feet and tendonitis along the way. But this morning as I re-re-re-pack my bag for my first solo backcountry trip I realize that, at the root of it all, its because ten years ago if anyone had told me that I would be physically capable of (and actually enjoy) packing everything that I needed to sustain myself for a few days or a week, hoist it onto my back and march up the side of the mountain… I would have checked them into the looney bin. The only times anyone ever told me that I was strong when I was growing up was in reference to my will when I was being exceptionally stubborn. The real reason that I hike is because it reminds me that you’re never too old (or too young) or too weak or too busy (or too female) to do that things you never thought you could.

Last summer I had a lot of really bad luck with weather in the backcountry. It seemed as if the rain was not in a state of torrential downpour it was a thick blanket of smoke for weeks and months on end. It was defeating walking 30+km into a backcountry campground and not being able to see the mountains that I knew existed across the lake only to have to turn around and realize that the hike out would be hours of cold rain and snow back to the car. It was the first time that I questioned my decision to turn my passion into a career. When backcountry permits opened in January I didn’t book a single one. I wasn’t certain if I would want to invest my time and money into more experiences that made me hate the thing I loved most in this world. Instead, I opted to keep an eye on the weather forecast and, if it looks good, research a backcountry trip for the weekend and see if @ryanclennett is down for it. If the weather looks bad I am content spending a Saturday perusing the aisles of Ikea and catching up with friends and family in the city. Per usual I don’t know the reason I feel the need to share this. Maybe it has to do with the picture perfect squares that appear on our phone screens that don’t always reflect the reality of the experiences, maybe it is a reflection on the misconceptions of turning your passions into your career, or maybe I am just really happy with the way that this summer is going - mornings like this with 1:30am wakeup calls and my favourite grey sweater out in the mountains surrounded by glaciers.

Wildlife Monday coming at you! The first two shots of Baby and Mama Griz where shot from the Icefields Parkway. We pulled over safely and I used my zoom lens (and then further cropped in processing) so as to not interfere with their day. The third shot of the Porcupine is from the trail and I gave it as much room as the Grizz. I bumped up my ISO to get as clear a shot as possible in the dim forest. The video is a bit sad as the wolf appeared lean, and later was most likely involved in an incident that led to it being put down and a camper and his family being attacked. I don’t know this for sure, but I took the video as we drove by the Ramparts Hostel/CG area the day before the unfortunate incident.

Ventured out of the kitchen and into the Canadian Rockies! Much like the views, Alberta’s weather can get very dramatic. This day was perfect, if but a little windy. Another dramatic sight would have been my face if the wind blew off this hat into the lake 😆. So I think to avoid the latter, I’ll to hold on to the hat 🎩 #holdontoyourhat #remembertosmile #keepmoving

Can't wait to be back here, hopefully avoiding the crowds, breathing in some cool crisp mountain air, and seeing some wildlife! Oh, plus I'd like to do the Valley of 10 Peaks hike. Who's done it? How'd you like it? 🗻 P.S. I fully expect it to still be snowy-ish when I go, so get ready for stories of me falling on my ass again. I fell so many times last time I was in Alberta. I was dying laughing. Other hikers passing by seemed annoyed, as if they were the ones that fell! 😂 Jesus, how are people crabby in such a beautiful spot? I had a good time laughing at myself slipping/falling on ice. 🤷🏼‍♀️ | 📍 Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, AB, Canada 🏞️ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ 🏞️ #alberta #optoutside #banffnationalpark #travelalberta #canadianrockies #rockymountains #morainelake #wildernessculture #banff #liveoutdoors #mountainvibes #livelovecanada #roadtrip #parkscanada #raw_mobile #adventurenthusiasts #wildernessearth #hiking #moodygram #femaletravel #earthfocus #adventures #raw_allnature #agameoftones #canadalife #mountains #nationalparks #raw_canada #albertacanada

Lake Louise is the crown jewel of Banff. Canoe in summer, skate on it in winter. Stay or tell your other half for a destination wedding in the stately Chateau. Or hike 6 miles to the tea house for the famous cake. The cliff hiking was worth it for our group. I had so much energy looking at changing color of the lake from high up. Definitely a place to visit multiple times. Flight from most cities in US often cost below $300RT. #lakelouise #canada #banff #alberta #banffnationalpark #rockymountains #calgary #travelalberta #canadianrockies #globetrotter #wanderlust

Hard work pays off. Owls are by far my favourite animal to photograph, but they are the most difficult. It takes time to study their behaviour to try and locate them. This was my first encounter with a Great Grey Owl. I was lucky to watch it hunt for a while, and then it disappeared silently back into the forest.

There is just something so special about the Canadian Rockies that will take your mind to a different place. When I’m captivated by so much beauty I tend to just stare and not even say a word.

Trust the process 🙏 Sometimes you can want something to work out so badly but everything is working against you to make it not happen. How do you know when to keep fighting for it and when to throw in the towel? For example, two years ago Ryan and I tried to move back to the Rockies, Canmore AB specifically. We thought we did everything right. We came out in shoulder season to find a place, scheduled viewings ahead of time, and every day that there was a new listing we would be shooting emails right away. Everything we tried fell through and we failed miserably. We tried so hard to find a place to live near the mountains and it felt like we were fighting against something that just did not want us out there at time. We ended up returning back to my home town not too long after because we realized the housing market was impossible out there. Looking back, I’m so thankful we did. We were able to grow our business exponentially, create lifelong relationships, pick up new hobbies, and be close to my family (it had been a long time since I lived near them). If the Rockies had worked out when we tried, I’m sure a different path would’ve been paved. I’m so grateful for the one that was created for us back in Ontario which has now naturally led us back out west. Only this time instead we are an hour from the mountains in our ideal location. We’re already living our dream life which we actively pictured when we were struggling to make things work back home. We would always talk to each other about what our ideal day looked like and it would always go something like “wake up early, go to the gym, work from home for a few hours, go climbing (or hiking or trail running), eat good vegan food”. Definitely not a lot to ask but when you’re far from the places that inspire you the most, the mountain lifestyle can seem like such a fantasy. All that to say, we’ve been able to experience our ideal days and it was certainly worth the wait 🌸Sometimes you have to embrace your failures and trust that there’s an alternative path that will eventually take you there 💛 Ps our life is FAR from perfect, I’m writing this from an empty condo and still living out of this purple backpack 😂

Confession: I've been going through some intense personal/inner work this summer that I feel called to share here ✨ I've felt this heavy energy of shifting into the person I've always been and as an #empath I can sense alot of people in my life are going through the same thing. . . Do you feel the heavy yet expansive energy happening in your life? Let me know in the comments below ❤️ . . I've been doing alot of work using the #enneagram which at first glance looks like a trendy personality test but is truly the most healing tool I've ever used along with therapy. . . I'm working through some childhood wounds/experiences that have shaped me and made me realize what my real calling is. Once I started my buisness I realized I had been sleep walking through life and that I was tired of accepting other people's scarcity thinking as fact. . . I've always had a hard time sharing openly and vulnerably about my real deep emotions with people and although you might think I'm an open book, I hate to look like I don't have my s*** together. It's freaking tiring and emotionally exhausting to start working through things you've hid from your own subconscious but it is so worth it. . . As an #enneagram8 I am fiercely protective of those I love and care about and will do everything in my power to help people rise up in their life. I'm sure my Beautycounter team can attest to this 😂 because it brings me the most joy to help women finally get the tools to empower themselves. . . Connecting back to my #innerchild makes me realize I've always been an entrepreneur but that somewhere along the way I internalized the fear our society thrives on and kept myself stuck/trapped in a 9-5 jobs that did not honour my gifts. . . My biggest fear is being controlled. This is why I used to wear "a type personality" and "perfectionism" as a badge of honour when I know now that those are the very things holding me back from becoming the best version of myself. . . I know this is not a mini training or like any of the other content I work hard to create rather me doing something that goes against my very nature of actually sharing my heart ❤️ vulnerability is courage friends
