"Wilderness itself is the basis of all our civilization. I wonder if we have enough reverence for life to concede to wilderness the right to live on?"

If you’ve never volunteered at a trail race, I totally recommend it. I started my morning with free coffee and donuts, drove several miles off road to set up my aid station, watched the sunrise...then enjoyed hundreds of thank you’s, you’re awesome’s, and countless other creative compliments from smiling runners. They inspired me to run a few trail miles of my own before breaking down my station. Heard the view from Gold Bar was epic and wanted to see what the fuss was about. Congrats to all the Moab Red Hot finishers. Maybe next year I’ll join you!#moabredhot

Enjoyed showing my favorite guys around my favorite spot on Earth and having no agenda. The best part about Moab is there are always places to explore - old and new! 💞

Desert days. Trail tip: when wandering through the desert be aware of where you are walking. Don't bust the crust and try and stick to the rock and not the fragile #desert soil.

I went for a walk today on a trail that starts five minutes from my house. The trail disappeared and turned into a two-track underneath some power lines. Just to the South as I crested the butte I could see a giant cairn atop another higher ridge. No apparent trail to get there, I charged my own route through desert bushes in my Chaco’s (poor choice of footwear for bushwhacking). I found it! And it’s cool! And I had it to myself. I sat there for a half hour watching cars drive below and planes come and go from the small town airport. An interesting juxtaposition of peace and solitude against the bustle of everyday life below. Southern Utah is so cool.

“I like this place & could willingly waste my time in it” - W. Shakespeare 🏜 
I’m thankful for the snow & for at least one more weekend on the slopes but I’m eager for warm days & cool desert nights.

Talus. Like most desert people, I’ve settled into a sort of enduring love-hate relationship with it. Or love to hate it😉 I have to say though, after painting it all weekend I think I’ve gained a new appreciation for its beauty...chossy, loose, ass kicking beauty 🧡🏜 #rockclimbing #cragdoodles #castlevalley #watercolor

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” Overused? Erroneously attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt? Maybe, but it’s still one of my favorites, and within reason (and barring serious bodily harm) endlessly useful. Most recent scary thing- revisiting dip pen, and I think I’m in love 😍 p.s. if you’d like to see a big version of the six shooter towers go take my poll! Open until the end of the day, and right now Castelton tower is the favorite 🙃

Canyonlands, why you so pretty?
Canyonlands, why you so pretty?
Feeling a little flattened in this weird February spring-winter,
Feeling like the swirls of desert stone resonate more than the smooth-jagged graybrown of the mountains that are getting cheated out of snow,
Like I’m as thin and patchy as the coverage on our training hills.
I’m trying to turn and face whatever is groaning looming behind me,
But I’m the only frozen thing in this whole damn state.
I’m screaming battle cries but the soft breeze raises its eyebrows at me because there’s no war to wage.
I’m locked in a loop of unnecessary judgement and fight flight freeze.
Maybe it’s a call to notice,
A call to pause.
I’m shuddering here at the bottom of the exhale and waiting patiently trying to un-grit my teeth and relax into the discomfort.
I have no idea what’s next,
And that’s good news,
Because it means I get to choose.

“The red rock desert in canyon country of southern Utah provokes powerful divisive  opinions. How are we to find our way towards conversation? For me the answer has always been through story. Story bypasses rhetoric and pierces the heart. Story offers a wash of images and emotion that return us to our highest and deepest selves, where we can remember what it means to be human, living in place with our neighbors.” ~from Red, by Terry Tempest Williams. 
Little golden hour watercolor for the spirit✨ This book is a cool, vital wave of inspiration- I can’t put it down ❤️ #standwithbearsears #cragdoodles

2.1.18 — Today, the Trump administration starts allowing companies to stake claims on sections of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in Utah — the new stakeholders can conduct hard rock mining on the formerly protected lands.

On December 4, 2017, Trump signed proclamations to shrink these two national monuments in Utah. It is the largest elimination of protected areas in US history a for the profits of the fossil fuel industry.

Kivas were rooms used by Ancestral Puebloans for religious rituals. You can find them carved into sandstone cliffs across the Colorado Plateau. This partially restored one is Perfect Kiva, and is nestled in an alcove of Bullet Canyon in Bears Ears National Monument.

You have probably heard about it before. President Trump declared the reductions for 2 National Monuments: Bears Ears and Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument. He stated this was a move, for the people, to give the land back to the locals. Uranium is considered for the people? 
What happens when a group of friends come together to run. Run like a messenger to see the places that would be protected. 
Raise your hand if you have  visited these sacred lands 🙌🏻 or say I if you would like to, but not confident you will ever get the chance to? 
A group of friends. A video about their advocacy. It’s a pretty cool thing they did to raise their voices about the places they love. Watch now. Love the land now. Take action now.

Two birds with one stone- I’ve never painted an arch (😱 I know right?!), and I’ve never filmed a whole speed paint! Staying loose and working quickly are two of my biggest challenges. However they’re also two of the reasons I’m drawn to watercolor landscapes. The process has taught me to be less attached to outcomes, and to let go of my perfectionist leanings 😉 stay loose this week y’all! #archesnp #watercolor #landscape #speedpaint #cragdoodles

Navajo Prayer - May it be beautiful

by Navajo (Anonymous)

English version by Gladys A. Reichard
Original Language Navaho/Dine

Dark young pine, at the center of the earth originating,
I have made your sacrifice.
Whiteshell, turquoise, abalone beautiful,
Jet beautiful, fool's gold beautiful, blue pollen beautiful,
Red pollen, pollen beautiful, your sacrifice I have made.
This day your child I have become, I say.

Watch over me.
Hold your hand before me in protection.
Stand guard for me, speak in defense of me.
As I speak for you, speak for me.  May it be beautiful before me.  May it be beautiful behind me.  May it be beautiful below me.  May it be beautiful above me.  May it be beautiful all around me.  I am restored in beauty.  I am restored in beauty.  I am restored in beauty.  I am restored in beauty.

As a therapist I’m always thinking about how I can do better for my students. It’s hard but important work to be critical of my biases and assumptions about how to approach treatment and what will be helpful or effective. I rewatched powerful TED Talk about depression this week. In it Andrew Solomon reminds us of the importance of culture in both experiencing and treating mental illness, and I’m just obsessed with this part of his talk. He speaks about traveling the world and talking to people in Eastern Africa about depression:
““We’ve had a lot of trouble with Western mental health workers, but especially the ones who came right after the genocide.” I said, “What kind of trouble did you have?” And he said, “Well, they would do this bizarre thing. They didn’t take people out into the sunshine where you begin to feel better. They didn’t include drumming or music to get people’s blood going. They didn’t involve the whole community. They didn’t externalize the depression as an invasive spirit. Instead what they did was they took people one at a time into dingy little rooms and had them talk for an hour about bad things that had happened to them.””
.
Treatment and mental illness can mean a multitude of things to each individual and each culture. No matter what works for you in your self-care and treatment, I hope you find a little joy and sunshine this weekend.
As a therapist I’m always thinking about how I can do better for my students. It’s hard but important work to be critical of my biases and assumptions about how to approach treatment and what will be helpful or effective.

One of my largest watercolors so far! Experimenting with thicker pens and loose, expansive washes. More big stuff is headed this way soon! #protectwildutah #cragdoodles

96 of 1000 miles run. $114.17 of $1000 raised. Feeling grateful that for every mile I run on these trails, a dollar is raised to protect them. #teamsierra #doinggoodbynature #sierraclub
Very proud of my friend @dylan.h.brown’s relentless pursuit of capturing and sharing the story of nature and humans. Out Here (link in profile) went live last week: a meditative documentary short that elegantly frames our stand-up paddle boarding first-descent of Utah’s Escalante River in May 2016. “The film is more than just stand-up paddleboarding, it’s about adventure as a whole. It’s about why we choose the outdoors over the indoors, and why we choose to risk more than we should to feel alive.”—Brown.

My final piece from Saturday’s live feed! Thanks everyone who dropped by! What do you guys think? Would you like to see more live paints in the future?? #protectwildutah #keepitpublic #desert #illustration #cragdoodles
I don’t think I’ve ever regretted picking a random dirt road and driving down it to explore, living in Southern Utah.
.
My plan was to get a few hours of ski touring in with the pups and enjoy some fresh tracks on gentle hills. The newly accumulated snow, though, was over a foot and a half, and what was glorious for me was a brutal slog for my canine companions. I lapped a small hill near the car a few times and decided the planned adventure wouldn’t work for me and the girls today.
.
I decided to take the eastern route back home through Zion, since it’s about the same as taking 15, but midway through my drive recalled the government shutdown. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to drive through Zion after all so I just kept driving south towards Kanab, and when the turn for a state park came up I figured why not? We bopped around but the real fun happened when I picked a random dirt road to turn on and tumbled down it to see what we could find. None of us were disappointed. Utah never stops surprising me.

Couldn’t ask for a better way to spend the last weekend of my 24th year than adventuring on a “that wasn’t what we planned” trip across Utah ❤️🏜❄️ A trip to Escalante turned into Bryce, Escalante, Capitol Reef, & Meadow hot springs. So thanks to a little directional mishap I’ve now been to every national park in Utah!
