Pastel sunsets in the land of the rising sun. I touched down in Japan with an ambitious and aggressive itinerary, meticulously planned at the expense of countless sleepless nights. So naturally - thanks to good snow and better friends - I abandoned the entire thing. Turns out the best plans are the ones you never made in the first place. @chrisfarro you were right all along: I was never leaving.
Massive thanks to @mountainwatch for making this magical trip possible ✨

Over the years, we’ve learned some great #campinghacks we’d love to share with you. Like if you ever get too cold in your tent, try to huddle in the corners. They are always about 90 degrees... What’s your favorite camping hack? ❄️⛺️🔥 | 📷: @elliothawkey | ⛺️: @bigagnes_#TheTentCommandments

Nothing like faceplanting on freshly fallen snow in front of PRETEENS to trigger my longing for the Mexican heat. Take me back to midday floats on the pool, with beers of unknown origin (seriously don’t know how or where I got that bottle) 😩

There is so much to be said on this subject but I am going to keep this simple & somewhat short.
It is so important to surround yourself with people who are of solid character...too often our emotions or desires can cloud our judgement. So & so “looks so good/hot 🔥” or “is so nice/sweet” or “everybody loves them, so I should too!” but in reality no matter who it is Time & Testing are the best revealers of someone’s true character. It takes Time to see if someone is consistently living a life of integrity, humility, true love, and service...and it takes the “Tests of Life or Life Events” to see if someone is truly founded on solid beliefs, principles, disciplines etc... it does not matter how many people like them or follow them. The right questions are “how many people truly know them, what/who do they turn to in times of crisis or pain, do they really have the characteristics & beliefs which are truly essential for Life???
Relationships are so key in our lives, it’s important to take your time, truly pray, wait, & watch before committing, but most importantly make sure you are that person exemplifying those important traits. The world needs more people of Godly Character not just good character, don’t allow yourself to be clouded by things which do not matter in the end...it’ll always just end in pain. Wait for the best and while you wait, shoot to be the best ✌🏼
“Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.””
- I Corinthians 15:33
“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”
- Proverbs 27:17
“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
- Philippians 3:12-14
this all came to mind because I saw the clouds in this photo...crazy, must be that @promixnutrition MCT Oil I put in my coffee.

Im not sure what’s more magical than snow in the desert ✨ The best odds to catch this phenomenon is visiting Sedona from Jan - Feb! ❄️
What do you remember from your past trips? Think about it for a second. Is it that time you tried something entirely out of your comfort zone or the contrast of stillness from your usual go-go-go lifestyle?
I’ve started to think about how I remember travel before I plan it. More often than not it’s been about sharing experiences. With new friends and old. This lady and I had a ‘friend at first sight’ moment and she became the (lovingly) annoying little sister I didn’t know I needed. 😘🙄
P.S. that’s the thing about traveling alone, you never really are.
Usually my hikes are all the way up... this one is all the way out and more beautiful the farther out you go. ☀️🌊
A bit behind on posting my hikes for #52hikechallenge2019 but still taking them, here’s #hike1of52 (1/2/19)
Unfortunately we don’t get to go on crazy adventures every weekend even know I would love that. So lucky for us, places like this are so close for us to do an overnight trip to. No complaints roaming around Sedona with these cuties 💗🐾 Photo by @harrietrosecornick
