Instagram? Hit. Me. Up.

Too bored to go to bed. Why is this even a possible problem to have. Here’s the #tetons from a while back. My favorite mountain range in the #USofA. 🏞🇺🇸 . . . . . #wyomingexplored #wyominglife #wyoming #grandtetons #mountainsunset
Tired. Where’s my Epsom salts. 🛀 . . . . . . #mybodyisbeat #bringmeyourfinestmassuese #butalsodefhikingtomorrow #portraitmode #portraitphotography #blackandwhite #blackandwhiteportrait
You ever feel super underwhelming as a person and then you come home to your dog? Tucking him in tonight and telling him he can’t die because I need him to stay obsessed with me. 🐶 - - - - - - #wedontdeservedogs #notasympathypost #justlovingonmypupper #lookathimbeingmajestic #antelopeisland #utah
One afternoon left then back to the mountains tonight. Thanks #NOLA, you’ve kept me thoroughly entertained 🎉 . . . . . . #yallcrazy #neworleans #louisiana #bigeasy #bourbonstreet
Today: walk, sweat, hotel nap, repeat. Total 3-day walk mileage around 24 miles. I’m flaring a bit tonight symptom wise and dying for something fresh in this land of deep fried everything, but handling it 👍🏻 - - - - - - #napsaremysport #willpayforafootrub #sorecalvesfordays
Thoughts on New Orleans so far: apparently I’m wearing one bra too many. Like I’m not even sure they make them here. Also, sunsets so far are 2 for 2 🙌🏻 - - - - - #neworleans #mississippiriver #natchezsteamboat #louisiana #sunset
Apropos for Mom’s Day... the Tree of Life 💚 - - - - - #whatevertreesthesearewiththemoss #neworleans #louisiana #treeoflife #audobonpark
