Sometimes Mother Nature has different plans than we do. . . I just got done speaking with the Colorado Trail Foundation and was informed that Segment 25-28 are closed without any foreseeable hope of them reopening anytime soon (for the next few months or this year 😓). Segments 21-24 still have high smoke levels and hiking is "at your own risk". . . What does this mean? I will continue hiking of course - but not without an exit strategy. I am also using common sense and do not want to put my health at risk just to be able to say "I hiked the entire Trail in one go" - that would be foolish and unsafe. It looks like I will finish most of the trail this year, but not all of it. . . I am super bummed but I also know that things happen for a reason. I am incredibly grateful to have this opportunity to hike and will enjoy every moment of it until it is time to go home. . . . #coloradotrail2018 #coloradotrail #solohike #alpinechicks #womenwhohike #naturetherapy #optoutside #sheexplores #ulacircuitbackpack at Colorado

✌Day 7: Zero day ☺ 🏕Miles completed: 0 😊 😊Segment completed: 0 😊 ❤ Lesson learned: The trail provides. Meet my friends Rana and Jeremy. I met them on mile 6 of the trail and have been hiking with them on and off ever since. They are such an amazing couple! As parents to 5 (!!!) children, they decided to let their kiddos spend some time with their grandparents so they could go on this adventure together. They have been so wonderful to me and have treated me like family. Today they invited me to join them at a wonderful luxury cabin they reserved to spend my zero day at. I am so grateful for them! You truly never know what the trail has in store, but it always seems to provide ☺. . . #coloradotrail2018 #coloradotrail #solohike #alpinechicks #womenwhohike #naturetherapy #optoutside #sheexplores #ulacircuitbackpack at Breckenridge, Colorado

It’s a different form of pure happiness when you’re engulfed in nature. I chose mountains because no matter how stressful or crazy the day to day life, work, and society can get, a hike in the mountains will show you how beautiful and simple life can be, how you can conquer your greatest challenges with some endurance and determination and how our worries and stress’ are so small in the greater picture of life. . . . . #wintersalmostover #lakelouise #beautifulcanada #mountains #ichoosemountains #mtnchickscanada #hike365 #lakelouiseskiresort #hikingculture #adventureenthusiasts #mountainchicks #explorealberta #getoutstayout #getoutdoors #wildernessculture #wilderness #naturephotography #naturelovers #hikelife #trekkingtoes #awescapes #snow #adventureisoutthere #alpinechicks #outdoors #takemeback #herpnwlife #bluesky #beautifulday #visitlakelouise at Lake Louise, Alberta

You know, I’ve probably posted this quote before. Several times. But here I am, sharing it again. “We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same, but something in our minds has changed, and that changes everything.” ⠀ Sitting at the airport, doing a little work before I hop on the plane, I’m a little giddy. I always am before I travel, regardless of where I’m going or whether or not I’ve been there before. And maybe it’s the Old Fashioned I’m drinking (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?) or maybe it’s the excitement of the wheels up and soon-to-be warm weather, but holy shit, I am so excited. ⠀ Traveling has become as much a part of who I am as my name, my hair color, my disdain for vegetables, or anything else that is inherently “me”. I never feel more curious or more alive than when I’m off exploring, and looking back at all of the places I’ve been, people I’ve connected with, and experiences I’ve had, I have the biggest fucking dopey grin on my face. Cheers to adventures new and old. ✨ at MSP Airport

I used to be a shepherd in the southern Alps. I had up to 1600 sheep, 40 goats and 6 dogs. I loved it. I was very good at it. It’s still a big part of my identity today. Like a super power. Being able to tender to the needs of over a thousand living creatures, working with the dogs, the weather, the mountain. When I was 22 I was offered the opportunity to take over a herd and a piece of mountain. I wanted to see the world so I declined. But i still long for sheep herding... . . #beonewithyourgoal #lange #leadtheclimb #alpinebabes #alpinechicks #alpinegirls #alpinewilderness #choosemountains #choosemountainswomen #dirtbagdarling #exploremore #explorerladies #frenchroamers #freespirit #getoutstayout #likeamountaingirl #mountaingirls #mountain #optoutside #outsideisfree #radgirlslife #sheadventures #sisterhoodofshred #themountainsarecalling #timetoplay #wildernessbabes #womenwhoexplore #sheexplores #sheepherding #mercantour #mountaingirls at Vignols, Provence-Alpes-Cote D'Azur, France

In my early 20’s I moved from Paris to Alaska (thank you @the_fulbright_program), spent 2 epic years there, then moved to Canada... the drive took days if not weeks because from Fairbanks I drove to a friends’ who trains sled dogs, then to Alyeska near the Chugach (my favorite place on earth), and somewhere between Wasilla and Tok I saw this pure beauty.... (if anyone knows exactly where it is, tell me, I don’t remember). The best. Days. Of my life. After a 2 day stop at the border (ahem), I eventually made it to Edmonton. And 2 years of more epicness were on. And now at the olympics I got 3 countries to cheer for! . . #beonewithyourgoal #lange #leadtheclimb #alpinebabes #alpinechicks #alpinegirls #choosemountains #choosemountainswomen #explorerladies #frenchroamers #alaska #girlsdiscoverers #likeamountaingirl #mountaingirls #optoutside #outdoorwomen #outsideisfree #sheadventures #radgirlslife #wildernessbabes #womenwhoexplore #universityofalaskafairbanks at Alaska

Weird and super excited chick pointing at the Mont Blanc with oddly bended fingers is trying to convey a message: “Let’s ski this!!” (What she means, as the hopeless over thinker she is, is: I know I’m a glorified advanced newbie at this freeriding thing, but let’s try if the conditions are right! I’m pumped! I’m rad! And I want cake!)

Ready.Set.Run!  I set out with the goal to run up 5,000 feet of vert today.  I finished strong and even played with the idea of adding on 2,000 more but I really wanted a snack 😊. To get the climbing in, I did the Manitou Incline X2 and ran a few more odd miles up Barr trail to get to my total. On the way up I met two awesome runners, one of which was doing the incline twice today as well. * What are some creative goals you come up with to inspire interesting workouts? * * * #Irun4ultra #ultrarunning #endurance #keeprunning #strongwomen #runhappy #runlikeagirl #alpinechicks #runfree #optouside #veganathlete #plantbasedathlete #plantstrong #vegan #dietitian #runningterritory #biggoals #fitnessgoals #transformation #womensrunningcommunity #healthwarrioramb #instarunners #dirtbagrunners #runfreegetdirty #ruggedterrain at Manitou Springs, Colorado

At the bottom of the Pentes de l'hôtel in Cham last weekend. It's a famous off piste run in the area and most people cruise through it but for a beginner at freeriding, it's tough! (Portions at 40 degrees). It took me a while, I had to stop several times, my technique needs drastic improvement. But. I did it. That whole day is a good symbol of how I try to improve my self-talk these days. I'm not pretending to be someone I'm not. But I'm also not sorry for who I am or how I look or how I ski. I actually quite like it, no matter how imperfect. If you're anything like me you're hard on yourself- remember to try and be kind too. #beonewithyourgoal #lange #alpinebabes #alpinegirls #alpinechicks #adventuregirls #adventuregirl #adventurewomen #choosemountains #choosemountainswomen #explorerladies #frenchalps #frenchroamers #hautesavoie #girlsdoski #girlsdiscoverers #livebravely #pioupiouhorspiste

Sometimes you find yourself at the exact right place at the exact right moment 🤣. Take me back to the mountains with my mamas! We didn’t ski or snowboard, but we did polish off a ton of tequila, danced around our @airbnb’s cute little kitchen and belted it out to old school jams like we can actually sing (which we absolutely can not!) It was stupid fun. 💃🏻👯‍♀️. at Frisco, Colorado

Saturday was a game changer. It was such a good day, such good snow, amazing sensations! I'm slowly but surely gaining endurance and confidence. My best ski day so far! I traveled 1300km and 3 days for 1 good day of skiing but it was totally worth it. There's no epic picture of me shredding the gnar: as good as the snow was, it was a storm day, so no stopping and no picture!

I'm looking forward to a long weekend in la Grave! 3 days of off piste with a focus on technique (turns!), endurance (keep up!) and maybe some fun in the mix yeah? Because in truth, i really want to get better, enough to be less self conscious about how I ski. Yes that's my goal: finding a happy medium where I'll find safety, the ability to ski decently something easy (at first), and self confidence #beonewithyourgoal #lange #leadtheclimb #lagravelameije #alpinebabes #alpinechicks #adventuregirls #choosemountains #choosemountainswomen #fatmap #girlsdoski #girldiscoverers #likeamountaingirl #mntnchicks #mountaingirls #timetoplay #shejumps #sheexplores @objectifmeije #lesreinesdelameije #womewhoexplore

At the Brévent, Chamonix, a season ago. You will NEVER catch me climbing with bare legs ever again. My skills level being what it is, I always seem to find a way to use my knees to climb at some point. And I bruise easily. My legs in summer are...picturesque. A running joke for my coworkers when i come back to Paris after my regular weekends in the Alps with sunburns and new bruises with exotic colors.

This whole process of training for an ambitious goal while starting with a huge range for improvement requires, amongst other things: to give yourself credit but not take yourself seriously (how could I! Based on what?) to get over the imposteur syndrome, to train harder than what you're used to, to be ok with just being yourself, to stop apologizing for who you are quite so much (and I'm quirky! Weird! And smart! And did I say weird!), to listen to feedback but ignore the overly negative stuff, because as one of my exes said "haters gonna hate, potatoes gonna potate". #lange #beonewithyourgoal #likeamountaingirl #alpinebabes #alpinechicks #womewhoexplore #outdoorwomen #choosemountains #mntnchicks #girlsdoski #shejumps #sheexplores #leadtheclimb #choosemountainswomen #patagonia @girlsdoski @lange_boots #coalitionsnow @coalitionsnow #sisterhoodofshred

I used to live in Alaska. It all started in 2008 with a competitive program called "Climate change college" led by the WWF and Ben&Jerry's. If selected, you had the opportunity and support to develop your own grass-root sustainable development project. I represented France and worked with local businesses in Chamonix on water and energy savings (while working on finishing my Masters). Also part of the program was a trip to Alaska to witness the impacts of climate change first hand. This whole experience was life changing. I met a scientist during this trip, whom I ended up working with for a couple years after being granted a Fulbright grant. So it all started there, my passion for the arctic, that day, on the sea ice north of Barrow. #lange #beonewithyourgoal #girlsdoski #alpinechicks #sheexplores #outdoorwomen #womenwhoexplore #likeamountaingirl #shejumps #leadtheclimb #climatechangecollege #wwf #benandjerrys #alaska #barrowalaska #universityofalasksfairbanks #fulbrightalumni #frenchamericanfoundation (thank you Jakob for the pic)

I got what I came for!! Chimborazo 6310 meters high!! Second time is a charm!! Mijn eerste 6000'er ! Ik heb ervan genoten, pijn geleden en ergens kan ik nog steeds niet bevatten dat ik mijn doel heb behaald! Precies een jaar geleden ontstond dat gekke idee om zo dicht mogelijk bij de zon te komen, and I freakinly Did it! 2 nachten niet slapen, om vadertje Chimborazo te bedwingen heeft wel zijn weerslag op mijn lijfje maar de zonsopkomst op de Chimborazo zal ik nooit meer vergeten, magisch! En hoewel snelheid in het klimmen voor sommige niet belangrijk is.. Was deze dappere dodo wel als eerste boven en weer beneden van alle groepen, dat is toch wel girlpower! So if you can dream it you can do it!

Empty handed! Mega baal moment! Op 5900 meter staan en dan terug moeten keren! De Chimborazo was voor de mensen van mijn groep toch een maatje te groot.. En aangezien je met een touwtje aan elkaar vastzit moest ik ook terug.. Maar vanavond gaat deze dappere dodo het gewoon nog een keer proberen!! Dit was namelijk mijn doel en met lege handen staan is niks voor mij! Is het verstandig geen idee? Ik doe het rustig aan, en voor nu slapen en eten om de beentjes te rusten! Wish me luck want ik wil dit zo graag die 6310 meters wil ik op mijn Cv kunnen zetten!! #chimborazo #secondchance #manwatwilikditgraag #standjedoodgaan #fingerscrossed #justdoit #climbinggirl #mtnchicks #girlswhohike #stravahike #ecuador #alpinechicks at Chimborazo Province
