I've always loved the "bad" weather more. Growing up in Finland taught me how important the right type of gear is for the extreme weather and polar opposite seasons.

Living in Ireland has taught me how those conditions can change in an instant, making your gear even more important with less predicting and more preparing.

No bad weather, only bad gear. I can't wait for the colder, rainier and muddier Irish winter to arrive although it'll never quite be the same as back in Finland. But I'm very lucky to call both my homes.

Yesterday we made a visit to a place I’ve had on my west coast bucket list since moving to Cali a couple years ago. I had this grand idea in my head of what it would look like, the epic shots I wanted to take and the short hikes I wanted to do. Just as we get to the overlook, a big ole storm comes rolling in and shielding my camera for the next half mile back to the car became priority over snapping pictures.

Without phone service, we were unsure how long the rain would last so we decided to wait it out in the car, spending our time watching downloaded Planet Earth episodes. After 2 hours of waiting, we ultimately gave up and I manually mapped us out of there and to the north.

Still wanting to see some epic sights, I navigated us to Mt. Hood National Forest where we slept in the back of the car, hoping when we wake up the clouds would clear and I’ll get to see Oregon’s highest peak. We’ve been here 12 hours now and the clouds are just as thick as they were last night 😢

The biggest reason I haven’t planned much for our last trips is so I don’t have any expectations, it’s easier to not get disappointed that way but dang, I can’t help but try and imagine what these views look like through all the clouds!

Has the weather ever threw a wedge into your travel plans?

I don’t know what I’m doing, but it seems like something I would do.

Seeing that happiness is a choice, I choose summer skiing in the rain, long walks with heavy packs, good company and wildflower galore!!! 🙌🏼 📸1, 2 and 3: @mikeoffthemap

"Care less about most and more about few." This has been the core thought that has kept circulating back to me over the past few weeks. 
I've always needed time in solitude to balance time spent with people, but even more recently. Maybe it's the judgement or opinions of others over my condition added with my sensitivity over the issue.

I've made an extra effort not to burn my candle from both ends for people that just don't give anything in return. It's hard but necessary; and it releases more energy to spend to the few important people. Or more energy spent on creating something your heart desires. Opening channels instead of blocking and draining them.

Remember: your energy is valuable. Don't waste it (repeatedly) on things that don't nurture you in any ways.

Photo from earlier this year, from a long day trip into a favourite mountain area of mine, just after the snow was melting at altitude! Great spot to stand on a ridge and look down on a lake, who else loves these mountain views? 📸🇨🇦☀️🏞🧗🏻‍♀️

Into the mountains I goooo! 🏔 
Just woke up somewhere on a dirt road in Oregon and now I’m feeling more than ready to kick this 3 week road trip off! We’ll be starting in on some explorations around the central part of the state before heading up to the main part of the Cascades in Washington.

Have you ever explored central Oregon? There’s SO much more I’m wanting to see, like the National Forests of Umpqua and Willamette and Mt. Hood but, time permitting, that will have to wait for another trip. 
Hope y’all have a great Hump Day!

“Thanks for making me slow down, for making me more patient and for making me stress less about the little things and focus on the present moment. Thanks for the kisses, cuddles and even the tantrums, but most importantly thanks for showing me the greatest love I’ve ever know.” - @viktoriawanders #childrenofmountains

Probably won’t get my August shred on because I am too lazy...and it is way to hot to be lugging a snowboard while wearing splitboard boots way back up into some crevice of snow that has a 20% chance of being rideable. It’s okay, I’m not sad. I always have my snow pics to look at in the meantime.  Like this one from the Williamson trip. 😍
Also, I have a big surprise to share later this week. 🤱🏼🐣🤸🏼‍♀️🎉

Less than 30 hours in 
Y O S E M I T E meant an epic 16 mile day with a private lake, meadows, lots of laughs, and even more granite. Part of my heart is forever in this special place 💕

One upside to all the smoke is it makes for cool photos. That might be the only upside.

Some days you walk through the whiteout, the freezing fog chilling your skin, questioning if you'll see anything from the summit. Some days the fog lifts. Some days you climb above it. And some days you see nothing. But you'll never know if you don't go. .
