  • Back in 2009 I posted a photo to Facebook from a solo hike I’d done. I had set my point and shoot camera up on a rock, set the timer and ran in front of it. And one of my cousins commented on the photo and said something like “this looks like it belongs in an Athleta catalog!” ...those were kind words for the quality of the shot, but it sparked something. Hiking was still pretty new to me, but that comment made me wish I could be an active/outdoor model. So I figured I should get some modeling experience. ...right? 🤷🏽‍♀️ . I created a profile on a website that connects models with photographers and wow... I felt suuuuuuper out of my element. But I bit the bullet and began reaching out to see if somebody (anybody) wanted to take my photo. And pretty soon, I was meeting strangers and doing shoots just for the fun of it. But not the kind of photos you see here. Studio work, portraits, editorial, lingerie, lifestyle, etc... nothing relating to the outdoors and hiking. Some shoots were fun, some were weird, some were uncomfortable... but out of all of that, I made two really good friends that are still in my life today, and I have some great, as well as some super laughable photos of myself. . I remember the first time I’d heard about Instagram. I was shooting with @jordanvoth and he took a bts shot and posted to it. It wasn’t too much longer that I created an account for myself. My page was a smattering of random things; my new shoes, the fancy looking mojito my dad made me, a birthday dinner, a photo from a hike and every once in a while... one of those “modeling” shots. But then I decided to dedicate my Instagram feed to hiking photos only, and Missholldoll happened. ...and my account began to grow, and grew some more... and some more. . About a week ago it dawned on me that I did a job with @Athleta last month. Wait. What? ...and I laughed as I realized the sequence of events that lead me there. My cousins comment on a pretty average photo sparked something that snowballed into THIS. How freaking cool is that?? . So thank you. Thank you to my cousin, thank you @jordanvoth, thank you @falcofoto, thank you @jayboyzee and thank YOU (yes you) for being here. 💕

  • As You may have seen I spent many hours to answer direct messages yesterday that piled up while I was travelling and busy doing behind the scenes stuff. . I still have a lot open concerning my training methods... Ninja was not easier, than any other husky. In fact Esther, where I got Ninja from warned me that he was lazy and naughty, he"d only know how beautiful life can be... "Just like You!"... "Please what?!?!" 😆 . Ninja found it cool to go on hikes with me, but totally ignored me outside... He was having fun. . A trainer told me many years ago, that I am too boring... Why should a dog pay attention to me? So with that in mind I no longer gave Ninja food as a regular meal. Instead I used the food on our hikes whenever paid the slightest bit attention to me. Sometimes, I stopped walking, threw a pellet to the side and looked at it... It may have taken 5 minutes but eventually he was curious enough to check out what I was looking at... I hid pellets in the bark of trees, threw them into tall grass, digged then in... and within a short period of time he knew that it pays off to watch what I am doing... and to cooperate. Additionally I did handfeed Ninja... Each day for tricks... I had to find new tricks to teach... and eventually trained him in quiet places outside... then at busy places... then at busy places with distraction... I taught him impulse control by lot letting him eat certain treats and allowing others... So he learnt to pay more attention to me 😊😊 . The method I use is positive reinforcement and marker training... It was not an easy start. It was frustrating, especially at the start... I was in over my head, I was impatient, expected too much... . But I continued the training, every day... and eventually started to understand him and Ninja started to cooperate... all of a sudden it worked well as I noticed that we bonded... it became fun and we both enjoyed our daily ritual... . I am no dog trainer and can't give you advice on how to train YOUR dog... but I am certain, if you read about positive reinforcement and marker training and advance the training in little steps of 5 minutes a days you will likely see some results...

  • Today we closed the hiking season of 2018 in Austrian winter wonderland. 📍🇦🇹Reutte, Tyrol, Austria🇦🇹 . . Мое субботнее утро сегодня стартовало в Австрии на легком маршруте вдоль озера. Градусник опустился до отметки -9, деревья и кустарники были покрыты кристаллами льда, под ногами хрустел снег и настроение зашкаливало. Сегодня последняя суббота уходящего года и мы закрывали сезон походов. Прошли дистанцию в 14 км. Для нас это было непривычно мало. Но решение устроить именно такую прогулку было принято обоюдно. Мне очень понравился наш маршрут. Очень скоро покажу вам больше фотографий которые я отсняла сегодня!!! Оставайтесь со мной!!!

  • We did it! During our first hike together in November 2017, @rachelq718 and I committed to exploring a new hike every month in 2018 and today we completed our goal! So thankful to share my love for the outdoors with this one. Without her, I’d never have discovered all that nature has to offer right in my very own backyard. ⛰

  • You need special shoes for hiking...and a bit of a special soul as well. Emme Woodhull-Bache ------------------------------------------------------------ It was a year ago today that I bought my first pair of actual hiking boots. I love social media that gives is these life reminders lol. Seeing this reminder, it made me realize that I am still fairly new to the hiking world. I have always loved to #explore #nature and #camp all through growing up but had never really hiked. One reason for not hiking is because it's a physical activity and I have not always been excited to "exercise" especially outdoors in the heat, you got me fucked up! LOL ------------------------------------------------------------ Of course, that mentality changed after I had my first real hiking experience. When I first started hiking, the shoes I wore were horrible but they did the job. They were seriously some Walmart tennis shoes with absolutely no grip to them. After 3 months of wearing them to hike and realizing I loved it and wanted to continue doing it, I decided its time to make my first investment and buy proper shoes. These are my first pair in the picture. I got them at Big5 on sale for like $30. Quite the investment right lol! The first time I wore them I thought, holy shit this is so much easier I can actually climb on these rocks and not slip all over the damn place. Just like that I was hooked again and wanted to hike every chance I got. ------------------------------------------------------------ Now with a good year of hiking under my belt, I've been thinking it's time I upgrade my boots. Yes, the ones I currently have are still in good condition but I want to get some that are properly fitted for me. Protecting your feet and making sure they are comfortable to withstand long hikes is important. Let's get real, I'm a #thickgirl and I have thick feet. I HATE shoe shopping in general because it's hard for me to find shoes that fit and that won't hurt me. So that is my next mission, I've been doing some research and #dannerboots have great ratings and reviews plus they are pretty cute and can be worn daily so I may have to splurge/ invest and give those a try. #thethickhiker

  • Este lugar fue en Asturias. Es una joya que nos encontramos de casualidad y que no pudimos evitar quedarnos más de una hora a contemplar y explorar toda la costa (aquí fue donde nos encontramos con la nutria de la descripción del día 23). ~ El domingo pasado le di todo el mérito del mundo a mis perros por el Camino de Santiago y hoy le toca a mi novia @sssilvia_97. Ahí donde la veis, no llevaba mucho menos peso que yo. Ambos rondábamos los 13kg-15kg durante todo el camino y, aunque le decía que me diera las cosas que más le pesaran, seguía siendo una cantidad desmesurada. También he de decir que se tropezó once veces a lo largo del Camino de Santiago y yo ninguna, así que también se lleva el trofeo del pato, por patosa. Disfrútalo cariño, ponlo en algún lugar bonito. 🏆🦆 ~ Bromas a un lado, no imagino haber hecho sin ella ni un día del camino. Respeto las personas que lo hacen solas y aprovechan para encontrarse así mismas, pero nada se compara a hacer algo así con tu pareja. El apoyo moral que os brindáis mutuamente es muy importante, y más aún en un reto como lo fue este. Además, al igual que con los perros, la gente nos decía que nos íbamos a “matar” y que no íbamos a soportarnos tanto tiempo. Y una vez más la gente estuvo totalmente equivocada. Esto nos ha unido más y me encanta que así haya sido. Otro aplauso más para ti.

  • Resumen día 24, 25 y 26 del Camino de Santiago ~ Día 24: Hemos pasado una mala noche con dolores de barriga, el agua de alguna fuente no sería del todo potable. Hoy nos proponemos hacer dos etapas para llegar un día antes a Santiago. Partimos de Cadavedo hasta La Caridad. Comenzamos por la carretera unos kilómetros y después empiezan sendas y pistas, que se entrelazan nuevamente con la nacional. Salimos muy pronto y terminamos de andar sobre las 19h, la jornada se hace dura con unos 40km y en esta ocasión podemos dormir bien en el jardín del albergue, menos mal. ~ Día 25: Coincidimos con unos amigos que también están haciendo el Camino. La etapa de hoy es hasta Ribadeo. Será el último día que veremos el mar. La tienda está empapada de nuevo y se nos hace las 10am para salir. El día ha sido caluroso, por bonitas carreteras con prados llenos de flores a ambos lados pero sin nada de sombra y el sol pega con fuerza. Los últimos 7km hasta Ribadeo son por carreteras hasta cruzar un larguísimo puente al final de la etapa para entrar en Ribadeo y por consecuente, Galicia. No encontramos nada para dormir y una mujer nos deja un cobertizo muy olvidado por su familia. Después de limpiar, hacer defensas con cajas para evitar a los ratones e instalarnos, cenamos unos merecidos raviolis cuatro quesos. ~ Día 26: Al no tener que recoger la tienda podemos empezar a andar a las 6am y hoy lo hacemos junto a los amigos de nuestra ciudad. El destino es Lourenza y es la primera etapa que hacemos entera con gente. Llegamos sobre las 13pm a nuestro destino y hoy podemos plantar la tienda en el jardín del albergue. El resto del día lo empleamos en dormir, en hacernos masajes, en tomar cervezas y en comer. Así da gusto. . . . . . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #MáunaMountainTeam #Hike  #Hiking #HikingAdventures  #Trek #Trekking #Naturaleza #Natura #NatureLover #Aventura #Adventure #Montaña #Mountain #Getoutside #Landscape #Paisaje #Outdoor #Getoutdoors #Sendero #CaminoDeSantiago #CaminoDelNorte
