In 2016 I road tripped from Denver all the way up to Jasper in Alberta, Canada. I fell madly in love with the mountains, the bears, the forests, the lakes, and the people. I swore I would move there one day. But then I came back to Colorado to finish my engineering degree and fell back into the comfortable life I've spent 6 years curating. I graduate in May, and honestly, I am scared to leave the wonderful life I've built. The easy comfortable thing to do would be to stay at Colorado School of Mines and move on in their material science masters program. The thing about ease and comfort - they suffocate change which leads to growth which leads to new experiences. Perhaps I'll fall flat on my face, perhaps I won't be accepted, but I am in the process of applying to the University of British Columbia's graduate school and I'm going to do something even crazier and switch from materials engineering to a Masters of Applied Science in Forestry. My heart has always been in conservation. Anyway, here's a photo I took in Jasper in July of 2016 and one of the many reasons I would love to live in this beautiful country.

My partner in crime ❤️ She inspires me everyday! And to think I would have never found her if I didn't travel 🙀
The late swell yesterday attracted a crazy crowd of about 30 surfers, but good to see @cornerofthesurf taking advantage of his local knowledge and getting a couple of nuggets in among the Lofoten traffic jam.
