Cacti 🌵 & Hiking books to explore for the 2018 season~ Who’s coming to hike the San Juan’s with me?
Join me on a journey through Colorado for the #tranquiltravelyoga challenge sponsored by @kulaeyoga. Day 3: Head To Knee Pose - Seek and Ye Shall Find The image of head to knee pose is symbolic of surrender. The physical posture builds strength through the back side of the body while simultaneously opening up the hips and hamstrings. This pose, while simple in structure, speaks to the strength it takes to let go mentally, physically and emotionally. In order to completely let go, we must feel safe and supported. Once we can find safety in the posture, our mind and body can begin to surrender. Contrary to common belief, surrendering is not a sign a weakness. In fact, giving all of yourself to any endeavor takes a lot more strength to let go, be vulnerable, release and bow down to your inner wisdom, your voice, the guide which always knows the way. Find safety exactly where you are on your journey. Surrender. Open and allow the breath, your heart and your body be your compass. The calming and soothing head-to-knee pose stimulates the root (base of the spine) and solar plexus (navel) chakras (energy centers of the body) and is recognized as a posture to help with anxiety, depression, headaches, fatigue and is said to help relieve insomnia.

Though the snow is still thin in the San Juans, there’s still good winter mountaineering to be done. The low snow allows reasonably safe and easy travel to some of the higher peaks. Carl Cudworth& I just enjoyed a great ascent of Reconnoiter Peak, near Mount Sneffels. #spiritofalpinism
January view as the sun sets! Longer days are taking shape in this unseasonal warm winter weather.
She lives it here too! Nola Bear!
⛰🌎 We heard from a local ranger to park our van on the service road and hike up to Blue Lake. We were like 🤷🏻♀️ OK! I could use this view right now. 🧐
You can’t see it, but there’s a billion stars and a perfectly good mountain range in the photo 🌲 I can go beachwards again
