Arizona is a great state. Many people aren’t aware of how much variety there is to the landscape, and tend to overlook the beauty of desert. Anyone know what kind of tree that is? It’s stunning in this shot. // @jaxbe //

Two years ago today I was reaching one of my most dehydrated states on the Arizona Trail. You'll be able to find out what happened in my upcoming book about the thru-hike. For now, see more of the Mazatzal Mountains here: https://www.freeroamingphotography.com/mazatzals/

On this day two years ago, I was caught in my first real storm on the Arizona Trail. This was during some incredible experiences in the Mazatzal Wilderness that you'll be able to read about in my upcoming book. For now, check out more photos at https://www.freeroamingphotography.com/mazatzals/

Along the ridge to Brother, #2 of the Four Peaks. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer day for a Motherlode attempt.

Badass Women of Tucson is one of my favorite @arizonadailystar series, and last week, I was chosen to be a part of it! Reporter Johanna Willett joined @lizthomashiking and me on #HikeTheLoop for the interview and we walked along the Canada del Oro River Park as we chatted.

Visiting Dad.  Mind blown. 
When I’m out of town and in the woods, I’m a different person.  I mean, so different & so happy and in my element that I’d go so far to say that if you haven’t been with me in the woods or the wild, then you really don’t know me. It’s unfortunate but true and I can’t wait to move away from the Bay Area.  It’s good to visit but not to live...not for me, not anymore.

2 months ago I thought for sure our hiking adventure days were over. But God is so good and today I was blessed and impressed to spend a day in nature with this old man of mine #godisgood #blessed #thankful #hiking #dad #indianruins #mazatzalmountains #payson #cherisheverymoment #adventurepayson
I see what you did there...
The old horseshoe, tin can and antler in the tree navigation system. Not much for signs or blaze, but these cairns pretty much saved the day...

Pic from yesterday's hike, on the Arizona Trail, near Rock Creek. Was a bit rough, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose..

Rugged Arizona from yesterday’s hike about 4,800 feet up, with the Mazatzal Mountains looming in the distance.  Heading back to Wisconsin today, but we’ll be back soon.🌵

Mazatzal Range - AZ #mazatzalmountains #nofilter #iphoneonly
Went for a little kayak yesterday with @t.emerick, because that’s a thing you can do in Arizona.

Absolutely stunning day to get back to working the trails. I had a lot of fun sharing my story with people I met on my trip. It brings me such joy to make folks smile with excitement when they learn of my “non traditional” lifestyle. I believe I’m spreading a little hope and offering a different perspective. Plus there’s the whole - we are out here sustaining beautiful places for people to experience nature and challenge themselves physically - thing. So rewarding these seemingly small daily choices of mine ☺️

My body might be a bit busted up, but my wheels sure aren't! The official #adventuremobile is back out roaming the desert and mountains. Saturday, we thoroughly scoured every campsite, picnic, beach, access point, and scenic vista along the west side of both Bartlett and Horseshoe Reservoirs.

2/3/18.

Hayley is done with art and wants me to post boobies.  So here are some InstaSafe boobies in a bra 😂😘😍 (no but really a whole set without even one censor seems wrong...I'll have to make this two photos longer to incorporate).

These mountains might not be as beautiful as a 14k ice-capped jagged peak but they have saved me many times. One day I’ll get back in them but for now I am content with their memory and how they have healed me (@jpemeric- I’m still really itching to see if SF was as clean as you said it was though 😂) #hike #hiking #arizona #mountains #mazatzalwilderness #mazatzalmountains #hikingadventures #adventure #happyplace #happy #explore #outdoors #cloudyday #clouds #womenwhohike #mountainsfordays #hiker #womenwhoexplore

i’m pretty convinced that arizona has everything, aside from an ocean. mountains, deserts, forests of cactus and also pine, flat plains of tall grasses, rivers/creeks/streams, lakes, valleys, canyons, arches, and more. who could honestly think this place is boring, or that we don’t experience all of the seasons in some way? we just do things on our own timeline. (december 25)

#mazatzalpeak kicked my butt. So many #manzanita bushes, thorn bushes, lots of #offtrail #rockscrambling and #rockbouldering. 12.5 miles, 4200 ft gain. Plenty of pain, many scratches, and a few “bad” words uttered. But amazing views. #hikearizona #azlife #mazatzalmountains #mazatzalwilderness #barnhardttrail #ybartrail
Figured we would go out and explore - get a little dirtier before he gets a bath

Distant views of some of the Mazatzal peaks from a remote section of trail. Mazatzal Peak, Mount Peeley, and Sheep Mountain are all hanging out back there. At this point in the day I had 15 miles left to hike and 3 hours of daylight - glad for the almost-full moon.
