theoutdoors.life When we were young we were told we could do anything, be anyone, go anywhere. When they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up we were allowed to have lofty dreams. An astronaut or a professional athlete or an artist. - As some point in time our heads get out of the clouds and reality sets in. We are told that we need something with stable income. We come to the realization of the work it takes to achieve our dream. We fall into what everyone else is doing and follow status quo. - For some, status quo is fine. A stable job that climbs the ladder at a steady pace is fine. People will live that life in complete contentment. Others need a disruption in their lives. They need to be that child again who was granted permission to reach for the stars, to climb the highest peaks, and swim the deepest ocean. - The outdoors life gives you permission. Dream big and reach for those stars. Go hike, go climb, and go discover. It is here that we make our ordinary extraordinary. #todsl
followtiffsjourney Amazing capture! Silhouettes and sunsets make the best shots πŸ’—

theoutdoors.life Watch out for wild animals in the middle of the road! Repost- thanks @samanthahikes for sharing! #todsl ・・・ "You can take in advice and other people's experiences, lessons, and stories. But ultimately, you are your own everything. Don't doubt or judge or be afraid of this. Simply know and and harness and develop ways to access it. Your own innate wisdom exists, and it is gold."πŸ™ŒπŸΌ πŸ“Έ: @billchopp

theoutdoors.life Sitting in the backyard having a wonderful dinner with old and new friends. Great food, wonderful conversation, and a view that drops your jaw. - Living the outdoors life is not always about being on a trail or in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes it's just getting out in the backyard with a rack of ribs and enjoying the evening. - It was also nice being able to play with and shoot this photo with the Sony A7ii #todsl #lasvegas
elong625 @bigbackyardphotography It was such a pleasure spending time with your family! I really appreciate the hospitality😊 Hope we can make another trip out there!
bigbackyardphotography Anytime @elong625! We mean it. I need to put climbing on my "turning 50 list" oh wait... That's September...can you fit me in???

theoutdoors.life That feeling of accomplishment when you've fallen, but keep getting up and finally make it to the top. - Life is a rock climb. - #todsl #redrockcanyon #rockclimbing

theoutdoors.life Water. What can you say? - It gives and takes away. Hard as cement and soft as a cloud. Breaking the hardest of stones and bending to any obstacle. Rising to the highest of highs and always finding the lowest level. Balancing itself out at every opportunity. Nature's most beautiful and deadly asset. - We must always stand in awe and in fear of it. - #todsl #purisimacreek

theoutdoors.life We are all separate, but unified. Thanks @rezify for sharing! - πŸ“Έ @rezify ・・・ To fully appreciate our existence, there's a number of things I think we must do. - We must Make Life Count by embracing the outdoors into our lives. - We must connect with others just as how you would tie your Shoestrings together for an Adventure. - We the People who hike , all as friends, must stand in solidarity to learn from one another. Today. Everyday. - We must protect this planet by educating and leading by example to achieve the dream of a Trash Free Earth. - We must inspire, live passionately, spread positivity & Seek The Trails. - So Let's seek adventure. Let's build community. Lets live the Outdoors Life. #todsl - Rez πŸ’š

theoutdoors.life A few days in the desert with the one you love. Hard hikes, rough roads, and lunch with a view. Spend decades doing this and you're likely to have a long lasting relationship. #todsl
followtiffsjourney I need a few days in the desert πŸ™„

theoutdoors.life Some people aren't fans of going to the same place twice, while others are happy on repeat. For those who are one-and-done consider the seasons. Between winter and summer most landscapes completely change and become a different place. - Went to Iceland twice in under 8 months. Saw some of the same sites, and wasn't disappointed at all. . . . . . #todsl #peoplewhohike #iceland #gulfoss #NordicVisitor #wheniniceland #imagineiceland #optoutside #getoutstayout #waterfallwednesday

theoutdoors.life Being outdoors isn't always getting deep into the backcountry. There are so many people who will head out to their local park or trail after work. It might just be a 20 or 30 minute walk or just driving up to the park it lot to enjoy the view. Getting out is what's important. Doesn't matter where. - Here is early evening from Red Rocks Amphitheater. . . . . . #todsl #redrocksamphitheater #denver

theoutdoors.life Every once in awhile Southern California will doll herself up and when she does, she looks absolutely stunning. All jaws dropped when she came into view. - The heat is coming soon, but for now we enjoy puffy clouds, snow patches on the trail, and cool summit breezes. #todsl #mtwaterman
paulinadao I almost miss the rain! My bike train to work is so full now

theoutdoors.life In every hiking group you need some people that are willing to do a boy band pose. The harder you hike, the more you should play at summit. #todsl #hikehardplayhard - Mt. Waterman with @elong625, @kdong28, @pineappley_sara, and Alex.
paulinadao I wanna come play!
