February's Full Moon is often called the “Snow Moon" in folklore traditions throughout the Northern Hemisphere because of the heavy snowfalls that are common this late in the winter. .
A Supermoon is a Full moon that occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its monthly cycle around the Earth. This is the second of THREE Supermoons in a row, but this one will appear significantly larger than the upcoming March Supermoon. You will notice you have an unusually high number of projects, promises and obligations around this time. Time will feel like it’s running out - but that is merely an illusion. .
The brightly moonlit evening of the February Snow Supermoon reminds us to be kind to all living creatures and to nurture the Earth with greater empathy. You will notice an increased sensitivity to your surroundings (light, scent, vibration) and your compassion for the world around you will grow. Now is the perfect time to graciously stand up for what you believe in.

2012. This is our oldest daughter. It was pretty fitting that she was on a mountain for this high school senior picture shoot. She summited her first peak on her own foot power at the age of 4. She became passionate about rock climbing as an adolescent and then went on to hike NH’s 4000 footers as a teenager. Hiking was so impactful in her teenage years that she wrote about it for her college essays. She is now a successful software engineer/educator/social media influencer who has a passion for exposing under represented communities to coding. THIS is why I believe in nature therapy.
Some days I miss you so.
I think about you.
The way we used to ride out on any trail.
In your badass & easy way.
With the sunlight feeling glorious through my helmet hair.
Riders stopping to ask where you got that groovy chain and a skull to lead the way.
To the many miles of ride smiles to come.
Excuse the red eyes and maybe not so positive post!! I normally keep my page uplifting and positive!
After 3 days of work, ( 2 of them 15 hour workdays ) Crappy eating due to trying to keep my energy up the wrong way, carbs and sugar. Hey it happens... 🤷
I came home to our house looking like a mess... In a disrespectful way. We have never had this issue before.. and I can say all the people we have had through Airbnb have been extremely respectful of our home. ( Almost every weekend for about a year ) This time not so much. It was even to a point where certain things were missing and broken. I'm not bringing this up to scare anyone. More as a reminder to be respectful of others space. Whether it's your home, online, or in person.
I've cleaned the house, sat down and had a really nice clean dinner with the hubbs and I'm going to go "work it out" in the basement.
So, instead of letting the anger and disappoinment grow, I'm taking care of my body and mind. I put my foot down by talking to both the guest and air bnb.
And I'm sharing a non aggressive post in here just reminding you guys and myself, to be proactive rather than reactive. To take care of and respect one another. ❤️ I love the outdoors and travel community!! I love to open up my home to others that wants new experiences and try new things!! I love that my home often is described as a place to reconnect and recharge!! I love that I have the opportunity to experience the same in other peoples home!
We bought a house in December and have been investing most of our weekends working on it instead of going on adventures, and, it has actually been a huge relief. Not to mention this flu/sinus infection that I can’t seem to shake, which has caused me to skip out on things and stay inside. Reflecting on my time being a homebody has taught me to value the moments that I do get to go on adventures. I’ve always had a way of thinking that I had to plan out the next big thing and figure out how to make it awesome. But sometimes it’s okay doing nothing and being at home catching up on TV shows and chores. And, when the time comes to enjoy doing something I love, I should actually savor the moment instead of looking to the future or getting hung up on details that don’t work out how I’d like.
So here’s to hoping that this year (and my 28th year) will be a balance of adventure and relaxation, with more focus on the present and less focus on the future.

out on the west coast I get this feeling
like it all could happen
She walked past like it was nothing
like she had walking feet and I had staring eyes
Her scent followed behind
She smelled like fresh powder that stayed when the sun came out
And for a moment it felt like mother nature had tripped and spilled a bag of diamonds.
She smelled like home
but the kind that is made
with memories plastered like wallpaper
after all the years of feeling out of place
I knew here, with her, in our dreamy little ski town, was right where I belonged #truckeelove@_mom_tana#truckeelife#nobaddays#truckee#california
My girl came with me to support mom as she battles cancer. I’m grateful to be surrounded by such badass women. #cancersucks

This winter has been awesome for Nordic skiing! Another exhilarating day on the trails - the weather a mix of snowing and sunshine. 🌦❄️ My husband and I had tentative plans to spend a month in Leadville this year to ski, but the best winter in about 5 years kept us right here in Flagstaff - happily!
“Take long walks in stormy weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods, if you would keep your spirits up. Deal with brute nature. Be cold and hungry and weary.” -Henry David Thoreau in his journal on 25 December 1856

Feeling like a dog wrangler 😅. I love the PNW and how one day you can be in the mountains skiing and snowshoeing, and the next be on the coast impersonating Dr. Grant from Jurassic Park. Cue dinosaur music 🦕
The best things in life are often waiting for you the grand exit of your comfort zone ✌🏻

Taos Field of Dreams. Oil on Canvas 48" w x 36" h, 2016. Taking it back to an old one but still one of my favorites. You may recognize this field, it is just north of Taos and often photographed, especially the rusty classic truck sitting on the edge. I had my paintings up in a gallery in Taos for awhile and I went to visit one day and a fellow artist took me to his favorite spot, which he called his Field of Dreams. I tend to agree. It was so beautiful I knew I had to capture it on canvas. This one hangs in my home above my dining table, I haven't been able to part with it yet! Check out my stories for a detail of this painting. 🎨👩🏼🎨🖌

You guys, I can’t thank you enough for being so supportive about getting back into training. It was just the boost I needed to get motivated and back on track again! I killed this weekend with a 10 mile run yesterday and a 4 mile hike today! Epsom salt bath and lots of ice and ibuprofen tonight but you know what they say #nopainnogain

@kim.n.logan // “I #choosemountains because they make me feel alive. I’ve laughed in the mountains and cried tears of both joy and frustration in them. I’ve been deeply challenged by them and deeply inspired by them. There’s nothing like getting home from an adventure and being completely spent; mentally and physically, and not being able to wipe the smile off your face because you had another incredible adventure that taught you something new. The best part is, you could live in the mountains your whole life and not have explored every trail... but here’s to trying!”

If these red rocks could talk 🏜
There are some wild places that speak to you. In the desert, layers upon layers of red rock hold the secrets of the past, stretching from deep canyons toward the blue sky. Are you a desert dweller?
I feel like I’m constantly teetering on the fine line of.. I am not doing/posting/working enough.
I am going to kill myself if I keep going at this rate, this is not sustainable.
Trying to be everything.
It’s that toxic “grind” mentality, where I’m constantly working myself to exhaustion in an effort to reach an unattainable standard to be enough.
People often comment on how much I’m achieving, on how admirable it is that I am doing it all.
But did you know that in my mid twenties I pretty much ruined my life. Like Britney Spears shaving her head meltdown but with a little less privilege. Academically dismissed from school, in debt from school loans and stupid spending, drinking myself to the state of blackout every week, I had betrayed the trust of pretty much everyone around me. I had hit rock bottom.
I haven’t been able to let go of that guilt of how much pain I put those close to me through. How sorry I am.
So all this drive and motivation?
What beautiful words to disguise the feelings of inadequacy.. all this hard work it’s the way I say to my parents, to my ex, to all of YOU... I swear I’m worthy. I don’t want to let you down. I just want to make you proud.
How do you heal the traumas caused by your own damn self. All unsolicited advice welcomed!
