All the intensive training we've done with Aspen has really shown this trip. It's been a complete change since his first camping trip with us 5 months ago. . 5 months ago he ducked, cowered, and choked himself out trying to flee at every single person we even came within sight of. I'll never forget when we had to hike past two larger guys and he just went into full-on panic mode, pulling so hard he couldn't breathe; he was completely freaked out for the rest of the hike out, and they literally didn't even acknowledge him; they were busy talking and turned away. 😔 That was the point I fully realized just how much one-on-one attention he needed. Far beyond that of a "regular" fearful dog. . This trip, he was pulling to try to say hi to nearly every single person we went past, and allowed several strangers to pet him with little hesitation! I've allowed him to choose his boundaries, and allow some pulling towards new people (which can be reduced in the future). And of course a gentle, calm reward when he greets people; something too exciting can create anxious energy in a fearful dog, even if it is a reward. 👌🏻 . The only time he was super nervous still was when the group was passing us on the first peak we did. Even then, though, his reaction was so mild compared to previous encounters. . I'm ecstatic that our hard work is paying off, but there is still a bit to go before he's confident enough in all situations. He LOVES hiking, so I use the things he loves to help boost his confidence, as he's already confident in them! 💪🏻 ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ #wildernessculture #stayandwander #roamtheplanet #earthfever #earth #discoverearth #discoverglobe #modernoutdoors #modernoutdoorsman #thegreatoutdoors #complexphotos #beautifuldestinations #optoutside #ourplanetdaily #fantastic_earth #moodygrams #earthofficial #campbrandgoods #campeveryday #campingcollective #ourcamplife #campingofficial #campingwithdogs #hikingwithdogs #goneoutdoors #nakedplanet #greatnorthcollective #whpdayoff

Yesterday was a whirlwind of a climb. We had anticipated partly cloudy skies, and 60*F weather per the forecast the night before, but woke up at 4:30 AM to cold rain in the upper 30's with the rain forecast to end at 7AM. Despite the weather change, we headed out at 6AM to climb two Adirondack high peaks, bundled in layers & our rain jackets. The rain persisted past 7AM, but we were met at the first summit with gorgeous fog, snow, and some not-so-gorgeous 35*F temps, and even though we couldn't feel our hands, it was worth every step up there. The rain finally stopped around 11AM at the second peak, and the sun came out, warming us up just slightly, and continued to warm up as we descended. Both peaks were view-less, but the scenery throughout the hike, and the gorgeous snow-covered pines at the summits were so worth it. . My love for the Adirondacks grows exponentially every visit here. ⛰ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ #wildernessculture #stayandwander #roamtheplanet #earthfever #earth #discoverearth #discoverglobe #modernoutdoors #modernoutdoorsman #thegreatoutdoors #complexphotos #beautifuldestinations #optoutside #ourplanetdaily #fantastic_earth #moodygrams #earthofficial #campbrandgoods #campeveryday #campingcollective #ourcamplife #campingofficial #campingwithdogs #hikingwithdogs #goneoutdoors #nakedplanet #greatnorthcollective #whpdayoff at Adirondack Mountains

"We need the tonic of wildness... At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature."

PSA from Ellie: Remember to stop and smell the flowers. Every time you come across them. And remember to sniff every single flower individually, because one might have more dog pee on it than the other, and who could pass up a good old dog pee sniff. 🤤 . . . Thank you all, again, so much for all of the love and support on yesterday's post. I don't write my posts to grab attention, because truthfully with my anxiety, attention makes things worse. I write them solely to help others feel and know they aren't alone, and it's helpful to hear from others that I'm not alone, either. I appreciate every single comment and message I received and I can't thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart. ❤️ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ #wildernessculture #stayandwander #roamtheplanet #earthfever #earth #discoverearth #discoverglobe #modernoutdoors #modernoutdoorsman #thegreatoutdoors #complexphotos #beautifuldestinations #optoutside #ourplanetdaily #fantastic_earth #moodygrams #earthofficial #campbrandgoods #campeveryday #campingcollective #ourcamplife #campingofficial #campingwithdogs #hikingwithdogs #goneoutdoors #nakedplanet #greatnorthcollective #WHPdynamic

Hiding depression is so much easier than explaining it. I'll be completely honest. I would so much rather just live my life, and suffer, than have to explain why I feel the way I do. It becomes exhausting to explain. Ultimately do I feel better mentally when I do open up? Yes, of course, but it takes so much more effort. . Lately I've been going through an episode. I thought it was just a brief thing, but it's been going on for upwards of about 3-4 weeks now. And I've been hiding it from most. It's become a coping mechanism for me to try to make myself believe I'm fine when I'm not. . But then the littlest things just make me crumble, and open up. . I have a thing with any sort of touch - I don't like it. At all. I tend to shy away from hugs or kisses, even from/towards those I love, including my husband. And don't even get me started if someone's arm brushes up against mine in a public place - literally induces anxiety instantly. But at the same time, when I'm struggling a ton and my husband can tell, he basically hugs me without asking, and keeps hugging me tight even if I try to push away. Ironically, this is usually the point I fall apart and just start crying uncontrollably and open up. And ultimately I stop pushing away & feel an incredible sense of relief. . This is what happened today. . I'm beyond lucky to have a husband like him. ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ ⇹ #wildernessculture #stayandwander #roamtheplanet #earthfever #earth #discoverearth #discoverglobe #modernoutdoors #modernoutdoorsman #thegreatoutdoors #complexphotos #beautifuldestinations #optoutside #ourplanetdaily #fantastic_earth #moodygrams #earthofficial #campbrandgoods #campeveryday #campingcollective #ourcamplife #campingofficial #campingwithdogs #hikingwithdogs #goneoutdoors #nakedplanet #greatnorthcollective #whpmadewithlove
