  • We weren't sure if we were in the right place when we pulled up. There were no other cars, no signs, nothing - just a tiny house on a dirt road with a  bunch of kids playing outside. Eventually some money was exchanged and we were led into the back yard. I still wasn't sure we were in the right place. It wasn't until I was standing at the edge of a pitch black hole in the ground that I knew we had found the cenote we were looking for. That, or we had stumbled across some sort of vortex to another dimension. Either way, I was going down. You can see the ladder in this photo - not actually a ladder, but pieces of rusted out track that had been cobbled together by suspect welding and chintzy wires. Worth every sketchy step though! #Mexico #Cenote

  • So excited to be headed to Bali for the first time in a few days!! I’ll be mentoring a bunch of awesome people with the @instituteofcode, and I can’t wait to meet everyone that’s coming. If you couldn’t make it out this time around, no worries! The course has been so popular that two more dates have been added in July and November!! Whether you want to be a content creator, blogger or social media manager, the Bali retreat is an amazing opportunity to learn with experts in the social media field in an environment where all your needs are taken care of so that you can just focus on one thing - learning skills that will help you achieve your goals! If you’ve got any questions I’ve put up a story with more details, or you can shoot @instituteofcode a DM. 😊

  • Swinging into one crazy blue water filled cave after another this week! 💦We are just getting started, but I already feel like a broken record. I swear, every time we pull up to a new cenote I'm like, "I've never seen water this clear!!” 😂💙 #bluewater #Mexico #cenote

  • It’s always so crazy to me when a place you’ve never been before feels like home! Who knows what I’m talking about!? Growing up in Washington, Idaho was always in my backyard. We would see each other on occasion as neighbors tend to do, exchanging pleasantries from a distance, or a passing smile on a cross-country road trip. But for years we remained strangers. Then last fall, I spent some time exploring the Sawtooth Mountains. I was only in Idaho a few days, but sometimes that’s all it takes! I knew even before I left that I would be leaving a little piece of myself behind. So when the opportunity to visit Sun Valley this winter popped up I, I didn’t hesitate to say yes! Check out my blog, if you’re looking for some fun Sun Valley based activities this winter!  @visitsunvalley #sponsored #seeksunvalley

  • My Finland blog is up and I’m super excited to share it with you!! I tried to touch on everything you asked for, including my favorite activities, experience in White Hell, what to pack (more about that later), and LOTS of photos! It was one of the most unique trips I’ve ever been on - and one that I’m sure will stick with me for a long time. Not only did we visit some stunning places, but we learned a lot about Finnish culture, and what makes Finns some of the happiest people on earth! Even when it’s FREEZING cold outside. ☺️❄️

I got a lot of questions about packing for Finland. In any cold weather climate wearing appropriate layers to stay warm is essential. A lot of you already know that @backcountry is one of the best places to gear up for a trip. So I was particularly excited to find out that they are putting their wealth of experience and knowledge in the outdoor industry into creating their own gear! I got the chance to try a few pieces out in Finland, like the jacket that I'm wearing in this photo, and I put my favorites in my story! If you are looking to layer up this winter you can use JESS15 to get 15% off your first Backcountry order! #ad #GOATworthy

  • It was -23°C the night that we went ice swimming. My hands and feet froze to the ladder as I made my way into the pitch black water below. I'd been waiting for this moment the entire trip. Not because I have some strange love for cold water. I don't. 🥶 But as usual, my curiosity got the best of me! People in Finland swear that regular cold water swimming increases both life expectancy and overall quality of life. It's also supposed  to give you a pretty nice endorphin high. Turns out, that's true - you just have to wait for the initial panic to pass! 😜

Thanks @nokiantyresna for putting together such an awesome adventure to the arctic circle. #itsabeautifuljourney #ad

  • Cruising around Hawaii this week and falling in love with it all over again! Seems like whatever I’m needing in life—adventure, rest, sun, salt water—these little islands out in the middle of the pacific have me covered.  Grateful for all the little moments here. Every crashing wave, melting sunset, and new day. 🤗

  • Where there’s smoke there’s fire...

The photos from this day don’t lie, but they do tell an unexpected story. At a quick glance, most people assume this photo was taken on a moody PNW morning... One of those crisp mountain mornings a lot of us live for. But that would be wrong. This photo was taken in the middle of a hot August day. The sun was high, and there was no moisture in the air - only smoke from nearby forest fires. There was ash falling from the sky, and the mood was more post apocalyptic than PNW. It was hauntingly beautiful. #WHPunexpected
