Spent the week in the mountains with @jasonrbutler for his belated Christmas present. We arrived too late to tour the first day so we traded our skis for our butts and did some impromptu sledding and playing around a frozen lake.🍑🥶 So often Jason and I plan our trips around extreme sports and elaborate outdoor adventures and forget that sometimes all you need is a couple snowballs, a hill, and waterproof pants to have the time of your life. My inner child was thrilled that I still remembered how to destroy someone in a snow fight.👌🏼😇 Hope you all are having a wonderful week and stay tuned for more figure paintings coming soon! ❄️ Mimikvinge.com #livecolorful

It's been a snowy day here in Southern Alberta which got me thinking of my last visit to Elbow Falls back in November on an equally snow-filled day. It can be tricky trying to capture a shot without the lens covered in snowflakes but when you get to spend the morning taking in beautiful views like this it's always a worth-while challenge. _____________________ For information on my photography including fine-art prints and photography lessons, please visit my website (link in bio) _____________________ #gatheringdustphotography #albertatourism #mountainlife #kananaskis #frozenwaterfall #elbowfalls #elbowfallsalberta #winterwonderland #winterscenery #waterfall_collective #waterfall_lover #winterinalberta #albertawinter #alberta #albertaphotography #albertaphotographer #canoncanada #canadiancreatives #opcmag #travelalberta #explorealberta #explorecanada #sharecangeo #imagesofcanada #thebestofcanada #naturelovers #beautyinnature #landscape #canada_photolovers #myalberta

Hiiiii, friends. I feel like I haven’t been me for quite some time, posting a lot of recent throw backs and not very personal. Tomorrow is the first time in months I’ll get up to watch the sunrise the first day I’m off after a long work stretch. I knew I would get to this point of enough is enough, but honestly had no clue when it would hit. It hit me hard this week. I’m extremely passionate about my job (probably too much to a fault) and found myself super stressed, constantly thinking/worrying about work, worked up more than my baseline, and just a little on edge. Sometimes I struggle with the balance of simply loving the sh*t out of my job, and having an unhealthy, all encompassing obsession, but without any kind of release. To be honest, I’m not ashamed one bit, nor would I change anything. I love what I do, but I also know I can’t love it 24/7 and maintain myself/healthy relationships. I’ve felt it building over the last couple of weeks, and today it all came crashing down. I realized I haven’t been taking care of myself and my mental well being. Being outside is so much more than a pretty photograph; Its my release. I go to release everything Weighing heavy on my heart and use that time to reset for a new week. I haven’t done this in months and it shows. No more using the cold and flannel sheets as an excuse, its time I get back to making myself a priority. I read one of my favorite sayings this morning and maybe that’s what triggered all of this — Sleep doesn’t help if it’s your soul that’s tired. My soul is exhausted and an early sunrise is just what the doctor ordered. Happy weekend, friends, mine starts NOW. ❄️♥️ ________________________________________ . . . #eclectic_shotz #Sonyalpha #sonya7iii #MtnChicks #MountainGirls #folkscenery #WildernessBabes #mountainbabes #SheExplores #ChooseMountains #MountainLife #LikeAMountainGirl #aspen #WomenWhoExplore #aspenco #Goatworthy #rei1440project #Roamtheplanet #LonelyPlanet #ig_shotz #moodygrams #ExploreToCreate #CreateExplore #snowshoeing #GetOutStayOut #AdventureLadies #coloradotography

The iconic Ama Dablam dominates the skyline of the Khumbu Valley in Nepal. The name directly translates to Mother’s Necklace and resembles the outstretched arms of a mother (‘Ama’ in Sherpa language) protecting her children. ‘Dablam’ is referring to the hanging glacier high on the peak, resembling the the traditional double pendant necklace often worn that contains pictures of the gods. Often referenced as the most beautiful mountain in the world, Ama Dablam holds a transcendent place in mountain culture

First off, I want to thank all of my amazingly wonderful friends for really helping me get through a block I have had lately...I seriously appreciate every single one of you. If I have talked to you in the last couple weeks, or even before, you're one of them, especially anyone I have talked to in the last few days😊 When I woke up today I saw the weather and was instantly inspired! I have really wanted a "self portrait" lately, and I finally got one that really expresses who I am inside. This is me, and this is where I belong😊 #dowhatyoulove

You know what is more fun than ice skating? Ice climbing. Personal opinion of course, so take it for what it’s worth. This weekend will be my first time out this year, and fingers crossed we can find some great ice. 🤞🏼🥶👍🏼 . . . #tbt #battlecreekfalls #utah #adventure #iceicebaby #iceclimbing #extremesports #winter #utah #womenwhoclimb #womenwhoiceclimb #mountains #outdoorlife #optoutside #forceofnature #sisters #climbing #wintersports #wildones #climbon #mountainlife #outdoorsy #idratherbeclimbing #frozenwaterfall

Excerpt of a poem by Mary Oliver — may she Rest In Peace. Wild Geese ...Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting — over and over announcing your place in the family of things. .

Endless views of the high Sierra and Yosemite valley. Yosemite is where the father of the national parks met with U.S president Thedore Roosevelt. They camped under the stars in Yosemite and thus created the worlds 1st national parks system.

You can make fun of the Toyota Prius all you want, but I drove this car from California to Guatemala (and back!) and all over Mexico. _ My dependable little car has almost 200,000 miles on it, and just as many memories. I’ve taken this car on dirt roads full of potholes in the mountains, and through some seriously deep puddles. _ I’ve also slept in my car on a number of occasions, both in Mexico and California. At 5’6 tall, I have just enough room to fully stretch out my legs, with the backseats down. _ I rolled into Pinnacles National Park last weekend well after dark, and wasn’t about to set up my tent in the rain, at night. So I car-camped (both nights). And I stayed warm and dry. _ I’m hoping to buy a roof rack soon, and then I’ll be able to carry a kayak on top. Who says a Prius isn’t the ultimate adventure car?

Selfie. From 3 months ago and one of my favorite hikes this year. It looks so sunny and peaceful but Bou was it windy up there. And cold. But happy plays remains happy plays regardless of the conditions. 🏔 #pnw #pnwonderland #pacificnorthwest #upperleftusa #hike #hiking #outdoors #active #optoutside #explore #mountains #selfie #fromwhereistand #potd #nature #scenery #landscape #tbt #travel #traveling #travelphotography #travelgram #view #wanderlust #sky #summer #adventureswithhella #mountainlife #discoverearth #exploreeverything

#tbt A throwback to a little more than 2 years ago, when we first moved into the cabin. ♡ We had just finished putting in stairs so that we no longer had to use ladders to get into the cabin, or from floor to floor. (Stairs are a luxury item when you are building on a budget from paycheck to paycheck and winter is on the way... things like roofs and walls take precedence) We were framed in and (mostly) dried in... with the exception of the hole where the French doors now are, the entire 1st floor, and our exterior bedroom wall (slide left). ♡ It would be another 5 months before we got "running water" in our outdoor shower, another 6 months before we enclosed our upper floor (that served 1st as our "kitchen"/dining space and later as we got the main floor done, our bedroom), another 9 months before we got an INDOOR shower, and another 11 months before we got any solar whatsoever. We used 55 gallon barrels to collect rain water and we melted snow as our primary water source, as well as pulled water from our creek at our secondary property. (Where our water still comes from now). All while continuing to build this place we now call home with our own two hands. ♡ Needless to say, we have gotten a good taste of how the pioneers lived.

Last night I dreamt about this place, this piece of land which has been my favourite since forever. What is so strange is that I saw this place in my dream from this exact same angle with the exact same lighting. Maybe because I remembered this picture as a reference point to this place. I woke up remembering the scent of the deodars and the warmth of the summer sun on my skin. I looked outside my hut and realised I was dreaming all this while but yet it felt so real as if I had been walking down this road just a minute ago. Life has been so relaxed and dreamlike since the last few days that I have not even had the time or the drive to walk around and take a few pictures to share with you all. Today I am finally going to get my phone fixed in the nearby Mi store which was closed yesterday due to the last day of Pongal celebrations. Then maybe I can spend more time taking pictures and sharing them without having to ask Adi to lend me his phone every few hours!
