Seen on a yellow yield sign in the woods — Hikers yield to equestrians; equestrians, control your horse; bicyclists yield to everyone; absolutely no ATVs. ⁣ ⁣ All those rules are just enough to ruin a good hike. I’ve reworked the rules in my illustration, which replaces right-of-ways with antipathies, that is, “deep-seated feelings of dislike or aversion.”⁣ ⁣ As with all posts at Backpacker Comics, this one wasn’t published without extensive fact-checking. My research about sharing the trail turned up an article from the Sierra Club titled “Do Bikes Belong In Wilderness Areas?” According to Aaron Teasdale, sociologists have documented an “asymmetric relationship” among trail users. It begins with separating groups of trail users by number: 1. Hikers, 2. Horse Riders, 3. Mountain Bikers, 4. ATV/motorcyclists. People in each group have no problem with the ones above them in the hierarchy but don’t want to see the ones below them on the trail. That’s why the relationship is “asymmetric.”⁣ ⁣ It’s a complicated way of saying that most hikers don’t want to see anyone on the trail who isn’t touching it with their own feet. Horses and motorized vehicles aren’t allowed on the Appalachian Trail, for example, which makes a great many people very happy.⁣ ⁣ Horse riders, meanwhile, claim to be hugely misunderstood. See, for example, the article by Chelle Grald titles “Horses As Trail Users,” which explains that “horses are our heritage.” Not only that, horses are “low impact” and “lightweight” trail users that don’t do as much damage as people do, given their relative numbers. ⁣ ⁣ As a typical boastful hiker, I’m not buying it. As for bicyclists and ATVs, I promise to tolerate them like I try to tolerate horses, while hoping I don’t get run over in their operaters’ insane hurry to get to wherever it is they’re going.

Does anyone else living on the road feel like you found a "cheat" for life? Everyday I think about how crazy it is that we can travel wherever we want, whenever we want, spend all our time in beautiful places, and all for close to no money... How freaking awesome! 🚐 Living in a van is definitely not for everyone, but we feel incredibly lucky that we get to live life in this crazy way!

This is one of my favorite photos from my trip up to Alaksa. On one of our cruise ship stops, we rented a Jeep and went up into the Yukon Territory in Canada. This specific day the drive was pretty crazy because half of the time we were in thick fog, but then it would suddenly clear and we’d be treated to views like this! . . Check the link in my bio for my blog coming soon on the Alaksa cruises and how to get away from the typical off-ship activities and up into the true wilds of Alaska and the Yukon. . . #nature #nature_photobook #wonderful_places #wonderful_areas #exploreyukon #explorecanada #parkscanada #fiftyshades_of_nature #ig_nature_naturally #nb_nature_brilliance #landscapecaptures #allwilderness #mountains_seas_and_trees #canonrebelt6 #canonphotography #canon #travelphotography #ig_world_photo #mountains #smoke #wildfire #alaskacruise #norwegiancruiseline #wanderlust_tribe #wanderlust #mountain_wanderlust #travelgirl #travelphotography #girlswhotravel #travelblogger #backcountry

To the Welsh Mountains! I headed to the hills and turned my phone off for the weekend. As I'm not skiing daily and have been focusing on rebranding my business @uthrive_ltd I was desperate to get back in to nature. It was amazing. I felt so refreshed and had a wonderful time wandering around not knowing or caring what time it is. It's important to switch off. 💪

From a few weeks ago... Did my first ever 14er and skied all the way back to the car from the peak! The hike up was 3,400ft in ~2.5miles, only had to boot pack for about 150ft. The weather going up was sunny/warm, little clouds in the sky, and almost not wind. Once we got to the last 200ft to the summit, the wind started to pick up a bit and the clouds only started to roll in as we were starting our descent. The snow was pretty good up top and only that last 4-500ft were heavy and wet. All in all, it was a good day with the boys! . . . #14er #14ersofcolorado #mtlincoln #skitouring #backcountry #blackdiamond #salomon #salomonfreeski #holyshift #ortovox #ospreypacks #smithoptics #mammut #masterfit #masterfitinsoles #gotoxygen

“Here’s to all the places we went. And here’s to all the places we will go. And here’s to me, whispering again and again and again: I love you.” - John Green • • This photo is hands down my new favorite of Frodo. Seeing him in my favorite adventure spots (even the new found ones) is the coolest thing in the world. I feel like people who aren’t dog people don’t understand the feeling of seeing your dog enjoy something just as much, if not more, than you do. It’s honestly pure happiness lol. Frodo doesn’t LOOK like he’s enjoying himself, but i promise that’s only because he’s in a sit while I took photos and not pulling me through the sand 😂 do you have a favorite photo of your dog(s)? Tag me in the comments of it or post it to your story and tag me!! I want to see them all. 🙌🏻🥳

Who knows what these creatures are?? I had never seen one until last spring, and at the time I thought it was a strange land beaver or maybe a gigantic squirrel. 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While cute and chubby looking, these animals will DEVOUR anything you own including food, backpack straps, and trekking poles (they like the salty sweat taste we emit while hiking). Trust me, I know from personal experience 🙈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No matter how much they beg or pester you for food or sweaty backpack straps, never give in! Keep the wildlife wild, my friends. 🌲🐾 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nationalparkservice #grandtetonnationalpark #backcountry #findyourpark #nps #keepitwild #optoutside #wildernextgen #wyoming

Red Mountain No. 3 or Red 3 as it's mostly called. It's the biggest, tallest, and most importantly most skiable of the three. Obviously these mountains are a big part of this brewery and certainly this brewer. So, I give you.... Imperial Red Ale 8.0% ABV 85 IBU Bold, full bodied and as big as its namesake mountain, RM3 lives up to its reputation.Strong smells of caramel, coffee, floral, earthy hops, cherries and a little alcohol evoke the rich complexity of this beer. Hops come through from the first sip, a combo of Cascade, Centennial Columbus, and Citra fill the nose and palate before being washed away in a combination of caramel, coffee, black cherries and of course booze! All of his combines to leave a way to drinkable beer, slow down guy. Available NOW!

Phrase of the weekend was "it's starting to burn off!" The clouds definitely did not burn off until we were all packed up and hiking down, slowly revealing the beautiful views. We were just happy to have a camp fire while we could and kudos for everyone being prepared with winter layers! ⛰️❄️🌫️🌸🐻 . . . #mountainstones #clouds #foggydays #unpredictable #beautifulbritishcolumbia #leavenotrace #backcountry #camping #adventures #cloudclimbers #bearcountry @vilaws @a__keen @gradykell @ozwicker @matt.c.blidge @hoolie14

This weekend was a whirlwind of good laughs, memories in the sun & hours spent with friends in the outdoors. . The more time I spend in the outdoors the more I want to bring others to see the beauty of our planet, the place we call home. For others to see wildlife, beautiful landscapes, miles of trails, skies full of stars, sunrises over the oceans, and sunsets over the many lakes. We live in such a beautiful ball of energy that each day showcases itself in a different light. . I look forward to spending many more days outside & sharing many more memories of our beautiful planet. . #mondaymotivation . #traillife #backcountry #explore #trailgear #bainesadventures #travelmore #sheadventures #hike #trek #camp #climb #naturephotography #timetoplay #mountains #trailrunning #camp #outdoor #mecnation #askanyonewhoknows #ournature #ourplanet

Colorado weather and I have been having a weird relationship. It's gone a little something like this: LOVE IT, LOVE IT, kind of over it, wtf, in denial, and now I'm just working with it. Summer skiing is still cool. 🌞🤯❄🌽⛷ #coadventurebabe
