Let's talk about Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). In the Northern hemisphere we're experiencing our shortest days right now, which can have a real impact on our mental health. How do you take care of yourself when you're craving sunlight but it's harder than usual to do the things you want to do?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @thebethst shares a recent experience of pushing through:⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ "Yesterday was a day I didn’t really want to hike. This is the time of year when SAD starts to get me, and this year it’s more intense because it’s like fall got stolen by the early snow here in CO. Like it just zapped all the living things and crashed straight into winter. And winter is when it’s toughest to feel like myself. If you experience SAD, you know how it is. But I needed to keep on track for my #52hikechallenge2019 and yesterday we got some nice weather. So @miztressmouse and I made ourselves get outside. We hiked the first and second Flatirons and it was almost ridiculous how much better I felt. This pic is from the end of the hike and the smile is real. Just getting air and sunlight; just doing something hard and moving and feeling strong. It reminds me of something from @lalahdelia that I need to hold onto this winter: 'Keep taking time for yourself until you’re you again.'"⁠⠀ _________⁠⠀ 📸@thebethst #sheexplores #mentalhealth #thenaturefix #outdoorwomen #livewylder⁠⠀

After seeing several IG post of the SUPERSTITION last weekend, we (more I) had to go exploring and hike a new trail. It was a perfect day!! Weather was right! Best hiking partners to set out with! SUPS didn't let us down. We did a in and out hike due that our morning was slow and plans afterwards. #hikingadventures #hikingwithtoddler #hikingpartners #150hoursoutside #azbootleg100 #52hikechallenge2019 #adelarosehikingadventures #familyhiking #familyadventures #familytime #qualitytime #hikerbabes #hikerbabesphxaz #hikerbabesorg100 #journeyto100 #findatrailandgo #goexploring #ventureout #deserthiking #mountainhiking #arizonahiking #ultimatehikingchallenge

🤗 Everyone needs a friend who will call, and say, "Get dressed, we're going on an adventure." #jacelynnadventures #lynns52hikechallenge2019 #52hikechallenge2019 👉 53/52 A couple of months ago, my friend and I packed up our camping/hiking gear and took off. No campsite reservations made, just hoping to get lucky on a first come/first serve site and we did, we got lucky. We scored a site with no neighbors and right next to the bathroom and water pipe 📸 @jaceventures HEART LAKE TRAIL FROM CASTLE LAKE Oct 2019 Difficulty: Moderate Distance: 2 miles RT Elevation: 6,136 ft Elevation Gain: 682 ft Dog Friendly: ✔ Outhouse: ✔ Trail was hard to follow, but if you stick to the all trails app and you will be fine. WHERE WE CAMPED Sims Flat Campground in Castella Elevation: 1,600 fk ft Fire-rings: ✔ Flush toilets: ✔ Piped water: ✔ Picnic table: ✔ Fee: $15/night, no reservations. Beautiful spacious sites with trees everywhere and a hill as your backdrip.

Hike 49/52 Finally! I couldn't wait any longer for the wether to get better so I went hiking despite the frigid temps. About 40 min into my hike I stopped feeling my face and so I turned around and hiked less than planned. 🥶 Despite of the wind chill and icy trails, I enjoyed this hike with my faithfull Lolo; he never turns me down when I ask him to go to the woods. 😊🐶🌲#52hikechallenge2019 #stillofficiallyfall #fallinwisconsin #babyiscoldoutside #hikingwithmydog

Had to get in at least a short hike this weekend before the snow hits. Siamese Twins to Cabin Canyon trails at Garden of the Gods have some AMAZING views. Just wish they were a little longer... One more hike to reach my goal.

I got up early to hike Camelback Mountain with Arizona chapter of #womenwhohike. Unfortunately, I didn’t understand urban hiking on the weekend and the trail head parking lot was full. No alternative parking. I’ll be smarter next time. Used my trusty AllTrails app to find a nearby hike. Found: numerous baby Saguaros, twin red fish-hook barrels, first flowers of the season on tiny pincushion cactus, heart-shaped prickly pear, and Kestral hawk. Awesome!! #52hikechallenge2019

Today's installment of Tiny Dog in a Big, Big World 🧡💛💚 I had to leave Petunia at home to continue resting (although she's doing a lot better today! Pain meds & rest are helping her - she may have just tweaked her back somehow 🤞🏻) So it was just Bucky & me today. Gorgeous views of the valley from high up Taylor Mountain, lots of slippery mud, fresh grass shoots, and not a lot of people. Pro tip: don't forget your sunglasses 😑 #dogismycopilot #chiwolfhua #buckyandpetunia #52hikechallenge2019 #52hikechallenge

The Feeny Cairn⁣ ⁣ I think Feens is Team Cairns Violate Leave No Trace because he wants to dismantle each and every one.....or he just likes rocks ⁣ ⁣ Now I’m on Team you don’t mess with cairns so when he knocked this one down I made him rebuild it....using himself 😂 ⁣ ⁣ Before I knew cairns (and not the kind that mark trails) were considered a leave no trace violation I built a small one and spread my dogs ashes (Paxton). It was a memorial I have been back to many times. So though I’ll never build one again I also will never remove one from a location. Just in case it means something to someone. ⁣ ⁣ #lifewithfeeny⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #hikingwithdogs#hikingwithdogs #52hikechallenge2019 #dogswhohikeaz #dogswhohike #skylineregionalpark #explorewithdogs #bringfido #dogfriendly #campingwithdogs🐾 #adventurepup #adventuredog #dogsonadventure #travelwithdogs #adventuregirl #awakemysoul #gsdloverss #gsdunited #malinoislovers #malinoisofficial #arizona🌵 #arizonahighways #dogsofarizona #arizonadogs

Steep & mucky #Hike52 (!!!) on this gorgeous sunny December day to round out a year of my first #52HikeChallenge. I climbed up & around Taylor Mountain today and Bucky got to run free for most of the hike (which brings me the most joy.) I look back at all the nature time I've enjoyed this year, often solo, often with my sister or friends, almost always with the dogs. It's given me such peace, provided fitness, time with my dogs, perspective. I remember reading the history of how the 52 Hike Challenge was started, and how it was life-changing for its founders during hard times. The last few years have been really painful and I know that moving my body and spending time in nature helps me feel healthy & happy. It's been a joy to intentionally seek out new hikes this year and rack up some miles. I can't wait for #52hikechallenge2020! (And thanks to @adreexplores and @therealmarut for unknowingly providing the inspiration to do this!) #52hikechallenge2019 #thepandahikes2019 #crushedit #sonomacounty #naturetherapy

Yes !!!!Yesterday Friday the 13 was a day full of goal crushing!! I completed my 3rd 52 hike challenge 187/100 and beyond and hit 300 miles for 2019!!! Mid year I didn’t think I would hit either of these goals but I keep pushing. This year I did more new trails, attempted to summit a mountain, hiked in some hiking groups, helped others start hiking, went on my first backpacking trip in many years, camped more with my adventures. All I can say is I am blessed and I LOVE LIFE. @hiker_babes @moninae @naturegirlangie @52hikechallenge #hikerbabesorg100 #52hikechallenge2019 #journeyto100andbeyond #womenwhohike

47/52 - we went all the way to Phoenix, Camelback Mountain. 4 miles today. 1400 ft in elevation gains. We started early, made it up Cholla to a great spot to watch the sunrise. When we got to the peak there was Santa and a tree and candy canes! Totally surprised! Then down Echo to complete the full hike and Shake Shack for a celebration!#hike47@52hikechallenge #52hikechallenge2019 #52hikechallenge #womenwhohikesandiego #optoutside @camelbackmountain

52/52🙌🏻 🙌🏻 I finished my 52nd hike at the place I also started hike #1 at Matthiessen State Park. I started this challenge January 2019 as a new years resolution, not really knowing if I would be able to finish. Because honestly I’m one to start a lot of things with good intentions but end up not finishing for whatever reason🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ So I’m pretty pumped about completing all 52 hikes in a year. I live in Iowa where hiking is somewhat limited so I thought 🤔 but after researching and exploring a lot of new places this year the Midwest actually has a lot to offer! We might not have mountains and oceans but we do have beautiful canyons, bluffs, forest , timber and rivers/waterways that are worth exploring! I have fallen in love with hiking and exploring I have this challenge to thank for that. I have noticed a change in myself this last year noticing that I want for less and that I would rather spend my free time being outdoors than anything else. It’s been a great year and even though my challenge is done I’m going to keep tracking my hikes until #100 because well why not?! Thanks for the support and putting up with all my post!😊 52 Hike

This was without doubt one of the most difficult hikes of my life. And I have enjoyed hiking for the past 8 years or so. ⁣I climbed to an altitude of over 7,000 feet under the harsh Salvadorian sun. ⁣ The guide left us in the dust, and I quickly fell from the front of the group to the back. At some point, I put my scarf around my face in a vain attempt to keep from burning. As we began the final ascent to the rim of the volcano, I passed a few people who were sitting down, telling their friends to continue on, having given up. I was the 5th to last person to make it to the rim, well after everyone else in the group had, BUT I MADE IT. ⁣ ⁣ I saw the green water, smelled the sulfur, and looked around myself for panoramic views of the countryside, other volcanoes, and the ocean. ⁣ ⁣ On the way back down, I stayed towards the front of the group, chatting with three other girls who were traveling solo (Brazil, Germany, and Hong Kong via Los Angeles). I did a 2-kilometer road walk back up to the top of the adjacent park to get back to my car. I stuck out my thumb to all the cars that passed, but nobody stopped to pick me up, even though there is supposed to be a strong hitchhiking culture on that mountain. I was dead, my lower back was starting to hurt, and every time I checked my phone it said I still had over a kilometer to walk. ⁣ ⁣ I FINALLY got back to my car, started the engine, and blasted the AC. And now I’m sitting at a restaurant overlooking Lake Coatepeque, tired, lightheaded, dead, but SO HAPPY I completed this hike. It’s not every day you get to stand on the rim of a volcano in Central America, and I will treasure this day forever. ⁣ ⁣ ALSO, a better photo of me chillin on the rim of this volcano will likely be my holiday card this year, so if you want a holiday card, SEND ME A MESSAGE WITH YOUR ADDRESS! I’d love to send cards to everyone and keep in touch in a more personal way, but I don’t have everybody’s snail mail address. ⁣ ⁣ Now, excuse me while I fall asleep from exhaustion while eating my restaurant dinner. #HIKE38 of #ELLIEHIKES52.

We survived hiking with Itsy, Adela Rose and Truman without no injury ... 🤣😂🤣 ... both kiddos did great even though the dirt and dog was more interesting. They hiked the first 0.7 miles then we strapped everyone on even the dog and hiked about 4.5 miles adult pace while they took a nap on the trail. Itsy did great in her backpack.

I honestly thought I would like down south better because the beaches but this area was definitely the highlight of our trip!

Pidurangala Rock is an excellent short hike with incredible pay-off. At the summit you get expansive views of the Sigiriya area similar to Sigiriya rock and you also get an epic view of Sigiriya rock across the way. I highly recommend you climb both however if you're tight on money this hike only costs $3 USD compared to $30 USD at Sigiriya rock. The entrance fee is essentially a donation to the Buddhist temple onsite. Because of the temple onsite you will have to cover your shoulders and knees at the beginning of the hike. Some other cool features of this hike include some epic boulders on the trail that make for great photo ops and a large reclining Buddha more than halfway up the hike! This spot is very popular for sunrise and sunset so if you want to beat the crowds (and the heat) I would suggest going at a time in the morning when sunrisers are heading down and late morning/afternoon crowds won't show for awhile. We started the hike at 8 and got the summit to ourselves for half an hour! You can learn more about this spot and some other cool places in the Sigiriya area on my newest blog post!

"Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine". This couldn't have been any more true on this day as we drove through miles of rain and fog worrying that we had made a big time-consuming mistake. As we winded further and further up the road the fog started to slowly break away and the sun started shining through. Once we got on the trail and climbed even higher the fog and clouds below us put on a show and the sunshine made the trail hot! We drove back home in rain again and couldn't believe how lucky we got. I don't mind hiking in rain, snow, fog, etc. but don't always write off the day as a bad weather day because honestly you just never know what you're going to get in the mountains. . . . . . . . . . . . . #pnw#washington#pnwonderland#outdoors#nature#upperleftusa#optoutside#getoutside##findyourpark#beautiful#exploretocreate#welivetoexplore#roamtheplanet#womenwhohike#pnwcollective#pnwlife#womenwhoexplore#explore#adventure#letsgosomewhere#herpnwlife#mountaingirls#brownpeoplecamping#52hikechallenge2019#hurricaneridge#hiking#explore#adventure#northwestisbest#idhikethat

You never know what someone is really hiding behind a smile. We are all going through our own battles, big or small, and dealing with our own personal demons and obstacle courses in life. Some days are good and some days totally suck. You never know how lost someone is feeling or what they are struggling with even when they don't show it. I guess all I'm trying to say is to remember to be kind to others and try to reach out to your friends and family members. You never know what state of mind they are currently in and how much just saying "hey, how have you been" or "want to grab a coffee soon?" can mean to them. Even if they keep it short and don't seem to want to communicate or hang out (which is common with depression and anxiety), I can definitely say from experience that knowing that you thought of them really helps. Also this is not a cry for help, just having some thoughts today and I know this can apply to a lot of people out there. If anyone ever needs someone to talk to or hang out with, I'm here and I love listening. We don't even have to talk. We can just sit or walk in silence and enjoy each other's company. Sometimes that's all it takes too. . . . . . . . . . . #pnw#washington#pnwonderland#outdoors#nature#upperleftusa#optoutside#getoutside#snow#beautiful#exploretocreate#welivetoexplore#roamtheplanet#womenwhohike#pnwcollective#pnwlife#womenwhoexplore#explore#adventure#letsgosomewhere#herpnwlife#mountaingirls#pnwoutdoorwomen#brownpeoplecamping#52hikechallenge2019#hiking#explore#adventure#northwestisbest#winterwonderland

Happy Monday! Just a little reminder that you can handle anything the week throws at you! And if you need a little help there's always coffee in the morning & wine at night to get you through it lol! Just kidding...kind of. But on another note I've been trying to set mini goals for the week each Monday. I've still been struggling to get my gym routine back in check since Italy & have only been going about 3 times a week, plus at least 1 hike on the weekends. Last week I did start to incorporate my morning runs back in and got 3 small runs in at home, 3 days at the gym, and hiked this weekend. I also pushed myself hard on my lifting days to get back to normal & hope to hit some new PR's soon. Lastly I cooked healthy all week! This week I hope to hit 5 days at the gym which is what I usually strive for, 1 active rest day hiking, and try my best to only have ONE cheat meal this coming weekend. I've been setting myself way back each weekend and I'm not proud of it lol 😅 I've been feeling sick though so I'm not going to be too mad if 5 days doesn't happen. I also hope to read at night at least 3 times this week. I have a book I'm almost finished with and another I've started as well! What are your goals for this week, personal and/or professional? . . . . . . . . . . #pnw#washington#pnwonderland#outdoors#nature#upperleftusa#optoutside#getoutside#exploretocreate#welivetoexplore#roamtheplanet#womenwhohike#pnwcollective#pnwlife#womenwhoexplore#explore#adventure#herpnwlife#mountaingirls#brownpeoplecamping#52hikechallenge2019#hike#hiking#explore#adventure#northwestisbest#squats#fitmotivation#pnwoutdoorwomen#cambodian
