Haven’t managed to find another country I’d rather live in 🇨🇦 Without winter, would we look forward to summer? Without fall, would a worn in jean jacket be as satisfying? Without flowers blooming in spring, would we ponder the renewal of life, as brown turns to green? #wegetohaveitall #canada #canadaday • Looking back, this hike was one of the hikes I did while pregnant, but didn’t know I was. This little guy has had a few adventures already, and I didn’t even know it. • 📷@wbradorr#kentridge #canmore #optoutside #hiking #kananaskis #mybanff #themountainsarecalling #freshairandfreedom #hike365 #camp4pix #liveoutthere #imagesofcanada #outdoorsjournal #amoungus #getoutside #girlgetoutside #wondermore #explorecanada #mecnation #wildernessculture #choosemountains #worldmountains #wildchild at Canada

I opened up my laptop for the first time in a looong time. My intention was to start writing about my pregnancy journey. Somehow being pregnant has made me want to share my story. Or maybe the writing of a journey is cathartic in itself, and that’s what I seek 🤷🏻‍♀️ I think on some level we all want to share our life, and connect with people over our experiences. What to share, and how much to share? Still haven’t figured those things out. If you know me, I’m not exactly shy, and definitely prone to honesty....😬 • Instead of writing, I looked through photos #classic because the album of Mt. Smuts was open on the home screen....and she’s a beautiful mountain 😍 Climbing it the first time was blissfully exciting. At the time, I was skilled enough to climb it, but a little ignorant, having not yet experienced the harsh reality of a mountain accident. Climbing through the clouds that day wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it sure made me happy! • Maybe I’ll start a blog....no mom has ever done that lol 😂 Or maybe I’ll only ever get as far as looking at pictures when I open my laptop #staytuned • 📷@lucas_really at Kananaskis Country

Currently my brain power is mostly used to research infant car seats, and stroller brands, rather than trail conditions and trip reports....how life has changed in a year! I recently used hiking as metaphor for being pregnant and having a child. • “You look at a description for a hike, and it might say 40km, 2000m elevation gain, and you’d say, that will be difficult, but fucking rad, cuz you know once you’re at the top it will be worth it. Right now, that’s how I look at having a baby. Except instead of epic views, I will get a splendid little human, that I get to call my son”— Me • I have lots of time to think about my favourite hikes these days, and imagine the summits views that are elusive to me at this moment in my life journey. And this hike is always in my top 5. The day, the conditions, and most importantly the people I was with, were all top notch 👌🏻 making it a really stellar day! Gap Mountain, you will always be a gem ✨ • I can’t wait to introduce my son to the mountains, like my parents did with me 👶🏻😍🏔 • 📷 @wbradorr at Gap Mountain (berg i Kanada, Alberta)

You know you might be expecting to see bears when you carry your bear spray in your hand while you hike lol. This scrambling season will look a little bit different for me, somehow knife edge ridges and 7 month pregnant don’t seem to go together....but there will be more scrambling seasons in my future, and in the mean time, new exciting life adventures ahead 😁 👶🏻 But I’m still going to have fomo watching everyone do epic things! #haveasummitbeerforyourpreggofriend @lucas_really #sunsethike #forestfireseason2017 at Gap Mountain (berg i Kanada, Alberta)

Nearing the summit, thinking about the cheese in my backpack #goatgouda to be specific. A lot of my steps up and down the mountain are spent thinking about snacks, even more so these days🤰🏻 Anyone else talk about food on the trail? It seems to be a consistent topic of conversation for me, pregnant or not 😄 Also at this point I was hating the fact I carried snowshoes all the way to the top, and didn’t use them 😐 Hopefully we won’t need those contraptions again anytime soon! 📷@powphotog . . . . . . #littlelougheed #22weeks #mountainmomma #hikelikeagirl #canmore #optoutside #hiking #kananaskis #mybanff #themountainsarecalling #freshairandfreedom #hike365 #camp4pix #liveoutthere #imagesofcanada #outdoorsjournal #amoungus #getoutside #girlgetoutside #wondermore #explorecanada #mecnation #wildernessculture #choosemountains #worldmountains #wildchild at Kananaskis Country

Thankful for jackets that still fit 🙌🏻 Human-building takes a lot of energy, consequently getting to the top of anything is a slow endeavour at the moment, which I’ll admit can be frustrating at times. But, I feel better for having gotten out, and doing as much as my body will allow me to do, at whatever pace that may be. Thank you body 💪🏻 🙏🏻 #humanbuilding #24weeks #6months #mountainsfuelmysoul #slowandsteady . . . . . . #jewelpass #barrierlake #canmore #optoutside #hiking #kananaskis #mybanff #themountainsarecalling #freshairandfreedom #hike365 #camp4pix #liveoutthere #imagesofcanada #outdoorsjournal #amoungus #getoutside #girlgetoutside #wondermore #explorecanada #mecnation #wildernessculture #choosemountains #worldmountains #wildchild at Barrier Lake

One day of sun 💃🏻 😁 and us folks here in the Canadian Rockies are making weekend plans like the rock is gonna totally be dry, right? It’s all gonna melt by then, right? #desperate #itsbeenalongwinter #sunislife @lucas_really Scrambling up Mt. Rae, one evening last July. at Mount Rae

A good scree run down is like finding peanut butter in a foreign country, unlikely but delightful! #peanutbutterlover #whatidratherbedoing #screetrain #wootwoot The descent off Observation Peak with @vagabondhearts ahead of me, and my sister clearly catching the action behind me to make fun of me later. 🎥@erinalittle at Observation Peak

If the sun could just come out for a little bit this long weekend, that would be lovely 🤞🏻☀️ Smiles are way easier when it’s sunny. And it’s way easier to get into the mountains if it’s not snowing constantly... I’d kinda like to eat some mini eggs with a view #weekendwishes 📷@powphotog . . . . . . #littlelawson #morninglight #sunrise #hiking #kananaskis #mybanff #themountainsarecalling #freshairandfreedom #hike365 #camp4pix #liveoutthere #imagesofcanada #outdoorsjournal #amoungus #getoutside #girlgetoutside #wondermore #explorecanada #mecnation #wildernessculture #choosemountains #worldmountains #wildchild at No More Snow

I’ve gotten to the point were all I can think about is dry trails, dry rock, and summer sunshine on summits. Man this winter feels extra snowy! Pretty sure I might just have to fly somewhere to find that anytime soon 😔 This is the view atop Mount Smuts. For all of you thinking about making the scramble up there this year, it’s a spicy fun one👌🏻 #mentalgamerequired 📷@lucas_really . . . . #ourplanetdaily #earthfocus #earthoffical #wondermore #liveyouradventure #wildernessculture #alpinebabes #mountaingirl #naturephotograpy #naturelove_world #naturehots #stayandwander #exploremore #staywild #liveauthentic #in2nature #outside_project #earthoutdoors #livefolk #aroundtheworldpix #worldmountains #AlbertaAdventureGirls at Mount Smuts

The Olympics are coming to an end 😔 What am I even going to do now? Pretty sure my couch has a permanent dent from all my Olympic watching. I love the national pride it brings out in all of us, can’t wait for Tokyo 2020! #thankyouteamcanada #olympicaddict #flytheflag #canadianpride #pyeongchang2018 📷@lucas_really at Petyo Lake
