It’s not always big mountains and risky adventure that I’m constantly chasing rather it’s the feeling of being disconnected while focusing on being present in the moment to learn about and challenge myself. Growing up in a big city this park in particular played a crucial role in my life when I was in my early 20’s. Anytime I felt anxious, stressed, unsure, restless, unhappy or just needed to get away from everything this is where I went. I haven't been back to visit in a long time but I still go here mentally quite often, thinking back to a transitional period where I took the time to really reflect on what’s important in life and appreciate the importance of being surrounded by nature.

*congrats to the winners: @silvergirl207 @h_garant @kaeladeda @dduerds * Super stoked to announce my new partnership with @backcountry , a retailer with down to earth, likeminded staff aka gear heads who have been there from the beginning to help support me with insight and gear when I was first getting into climbing and backcountry skiing. My goal with this partnership and each #sponsored post is to give back and help others who are looking to get into a new sport or hobby. As you may know it can be freakin’ expensive and adds up quickly when you're just starting out in a new activity, all to just further your appreciation for nature and create some memories. For that reason I want to put money from this partnership towards helping some of you invest in new safety gear or whatever it may be that will help you get after it and experience some good times outside. Just let me know in the comments what it is that you're in need of gearwise and what you're looking to get into and I will randomly choose 4 people to gift a $250 gift card to on Thursday (05/09 )!

If you’ve been following me for awhile then you probably know that my love for the East Coast of Canada is no secret. @hayoui and I have been fortunate enough to visit several times since our first trip 3 years ago. There’s something about the simple yet enticing landscapes and genuine friendliness of the locals that keeps pulling us back. Earlier this summer we visited Atlantic Canada for a quick trip with @matadornetwork The weather on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick was pretty moody while we were there but it only added to the beauty of the rugged (and holey ) coast line. #sponsored #explorenb #grandmanan

Finally getting around to editing some recent-ish photos. This is a moment I’ll never forget, it was one of the most incredible displays of light I’ve ever seen. A break in a snowstorm in the Grand Canyon.

You’re alright Vancouver. Over the past couple of days I’ve been going to some local spots around the city and comparing historical photos from the past to the present. I have some examples up in my story right now and created a highlight on my profile as well if you’re interested. Although there has been so much major development in the are I’m grateful for all of the nature we have in close proximity. Not the worst place to call home!

Landscape photography in the summer basically turns you into a vampire. Lots of late nights and early mornings, sleeping when you can during the day when the sun is harsh. That’s also my excuse for being pasty white..

By far the most interesting and intense staring contest I’ve ever participated in. I definitely lost. From a strange encounter with some wild horses on the backroads in Arizona. #squadgoals

8 days spent paddling between towering canyon walls that slowly transitioned from a dry desert to a lush jungle. I can’t remember the last time I’ve spent that long with no service, fully engaged in conversation and present in each moment with no distractions. Feeling incredibly refreshed, privileged and grateful for the experience. It was an adventure it’s self just to secure permits and find someone to haul us and our gear back out of the canyon. I can’t thank @moonmountainman enough for all the work he put in to making this possible. Still buzzing. Looking forward to sharing more from the trip!

Literally minutes after arriving at the edge of the canyon the white out snow storm ceased and the clouds slowly lifted to this reveal this view. Words nor photos will do it any proper justice. Thankful to have experienced this moment and grateful for the Hopi First Nation for allowing access on their special and sacred land. January 2019

Sometimes you spend days hiking in rain and thick cloud to not see a single thing and then there’s times when this happens out of nowhere 🤷🏼‍♂️

White Sands, New Mexico. I just learned that the gypsum sand there is not actually white, it’s clear. It’s reflected by the sun to make it appear white. It also dissolves in water but since it is so dry there all the grains have been preserved, making this the largest gypsum sand field in the world! #neature

A top highlight from 2018 was spending a week living on this boat, meandering our way through Norwegian fjords. A group of strangers turned to friends as we spent our days earning our turns skiing in the Sunnmøre Alps! Easily one of the best projects to date, documenting the experience for the @haglofs winter launch for @backcountry

Lately I’ve been struggling to find more purpose in the work that I do and what I choose to put my energy into, feeling guilty and unsatisfied with just traveling for the sake of traveling. It’s important to recognize that sometimes it’s okay to just relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us, accepting and appreciating it for what it is. Not everything needs a deeper meaning.

We don’t receive a lot of sun during the winter on the coast. When It does make an appearance and happens to put on a show like this, it makes you appreciate even more. Last light on Mount Garibaldi.

Looking back at our time out east I’d say that Cape Breton Island has been one of the best places to experience fall in Canada. The landscape was diverse, every road felt like a scenic drive and the hikes were short and rewarding. Every trip we make to the Maritimes the more we want to go back and spend more time.
