It was the final goal of our 50-day expedition; to reach the summit of Skihist mountain. We had come a long way from paddling the flooding river of the Arctic, summiting mountains in the Yukon and now our hardest task. Paddling the three alpine lakes, climbing the slippery loose rocks of the face to reach the cull between Antimony and Claimpost peaks. Mother nature had thrown all she had at us those 50, what were to be summer days, with 45 of them full of rain, blizzards on peaks to which we camped, quickly rising rivers, sandstorms, wind, the harshest of bush whacks to reach this moment. The wind whipped wildly as we crested the ridge and my breath seemed to be taken away as quickly as I took one. The heavy clouds masked that of the summit we planned to reach and soon snow viciously bit at our skin and the temperature plummeted. Hiding amidst the boulders we waited until our bodies quivered and our fingers ached. Making the call 45 minutes later we began our decent and with heavy frustration we broke camp and hiked what had taken 2 days to reach, out that night. Throwing one more last painful reminder of Mother nature’s power we stumbled out coated in yellow jacket bites, and all we could do was laugh at the ridiculous things we seemed to find enjoyment within.

Mistakes or a lesson? Depending on how you look at it. It's easy to look back and wish you had done things differently. Im trying to learn from the choices that have already been made and choose to not dwell on what could have been. What's your biggest lesson learnt in business?

🌬As I snowshoed through the trees all I could think about was how I remembered my destination and wondered if it would be as breathtaking as I recalled. I transcended over the last chute and quickly answered my own question🌬

The stairway to my sort of heaven. This place is so magical that honestly I don’t want to come home! I’ve met so many amazing souls, seen amazing views, eaten amazing food, and created ever lasting relationships. This island is a fairy tale ✨

A late season fresh snowfall blanketed the tops of the mountains, while far below spring flowers blossomed. On route to explore some of the thawing mountain lakes of the Rockies, the snow line had me worried my goals would be frozen. The mountain contrasts were heavy that week with the high waters of the rivers and the ice crusted lakes, the vibrant colours of the meadows, full of life and awakening, whilst the peaks, still seemingly black and white with the snow and rock. All life looked at a stand still, say the blowing snow from the deep gravity defying cornices that would soon crumble and mask that of the blooming avalanche shoots. I could smell the fresh pollen on the wind as I sat amidst the wild flowers, very well knowing I would soon be trudging through the heavy wet snow, frigid waters, and the sent of ice would be tingling my cheeks.

🥾Much like life, I can stand at the mountains edge and never know anything other than this place, or I can submerge myself in the mountains and know every place. For the former never moves, but the latter never does not🥾

Desert sand, desert hair, desert hands. Everything changes and almost everything gets better in the desert–even our clinics.⠀
⠀
This last one we ran was all-time. We had women pushing themselves, breaking down barriers, and all-around crushing. ⠀
⠀
Mary, one of our clinic participants said, "It deeply and profoundly affected me, with everything from learning far more than I ever imagined to creating friendships with other women who share similar interests and desire to learn and improve their climbing skills.⠀
It was a genuinely positive experience start to finish. I look forward to attending another clinic."⠀

My personality confuses people. I like being alone, a lot, but I am very outgoing and social. My environment dictates how I behave. Sometimes I am loud, sometimes I am quiet. I read the energy and adjust. There are times where I want to turn up, and moments where I want to read a good book, or process thoughts, alone. ————————————————

Since moving to Revelstoke, I’ve done more in three weeks than I usually do in two months at home. Being around people that are so passionate about being outdoors spurs you on to do more yourself. I’ve been thinking a lot about my short and long term outdoor goals. One or two might seem a little far fetched but hey, that’s what dreams are for. Now I just have to start getting in shape 😬

The photo on the left was taken at this exact location on the summit of Table Rock three years ago. So many things have drastically changed since then but my love for the mountains and wild places, remains. I am so grateful for opportunities to send with some of my favorite dirtbags.📿#vivalosfunhogs #enigmaticnomadics .

Here are a few edits I made using the @lightroom photoshop app on my phone. In the first photo I used the “B&W Punch” preset. In the second photo I used the “Auto” touch-up functionality. The third photo is the original, completely unedited. Which one is your favorite? 💁🏻‍♂️

Jillian A. Brown photography wants to connect her passions to you with a journey of Perseverance, Trust, Strength and Determination. 
Connecting Passions Speaker Series and 2019 Expeditions
A story that connects you to the wilds, to adventure, to a women not so different from yourself, and in turn connecting you deeper to who you are and who you could become. 
Along with captivating imagery from each of my expeditions I share the story of how I became the person I am today, the motivation behind my passions and overcoming adversity.
I share of the diagnosis of PTSD and how it has fuelled me to seek healing in the places I had found myself as a child, the woods, on the water and connecting to wildlife. Learning of how if I had courage to share, the more healing I found and the more opportunities I took advantage of. Leading my photography and writing to document and receive titles of World firsts, taking a tandem sea kayak down the Colorado River and grand canyon, to the First Canadian to paddle across America last year; all while connecting to the ecology, wildlife, cultures and myself along the way. As well as this, I showcase my gear, which is used and loved, how I pack, my food and the truth of not having huge budgets or brand new equipment and stilling surviving. Connecting with Schools, Stores, outdoor groups, camps and as many others as I can. 
Topics Covered
Mental Health – Teamwork – Overcoming adversity – Living a life of passion 
Belief in ones self - The power of positivity – Ecology – Geography – Essential gear
2019 Expedition Goals
Bike - Hike - Paddle
Solo Bike Packing – Top of the World Hwy Alaska/Yukon
Paddling Connection- Yukon River with Cadets of Canada -Yukon
Hiking the Last Frontier- Gates of the Arctic & Wrangell Range- Alaska

I’m often frustrated with the part of me that feels so deeply. It’s not only hard for me, but for the few I choose to share that part with. More often than not, they don’t know how to handle all of these feelings and I’m left let down and hurt. Frustrated that I allowed myself intense and vulnerable moments. Angry that in an attempt to connect with another for some perspective or guidance, I only succeeded pushing them away. 
I’m trying to teach myself to be a little more gentle with the part of me that takes it in so deeply, and holds on to it for so long because that’s also the part of me that loves like an awakening. The part that knows what it’s like to look into someone’s eyes and trace their soul. Where there is dark, there is also light. I wish it didn’t come at such a cost sometimes, ya know?

Eventful start to my 2000mile road trip. . .
So I left Thursday evening and made it all the way to Sterling in one go. Car- camped in a car park on the outskirts of town. So far so good! . .
Set off bright and early at 7am, drove for 2 hours and then broke down in the middle of nowhere in the Scottish countryside.  Clutch dead, Scottish coppers, so much nicer than London bobbies, stopped to help! . . .
Made the best of waiting for the RAC by making breakfast and making first sketch in my travel journal, not the first sketch I’d planned to do might I add!!! .
.
2 hours later desperate for loo RAC arrive.  Was no where to hide and pee so had to use RAC van to shield me! Talk about embarrassing when you have to tell the RAC driver to watch his step getting into his truck! River Nile! 🙄 . .
.
Towed to Pitlochry, cause of bank holiday car can’t be fixed till Wednesday! Bloody typical, have to rent hire car to continue the trip. .
.
Back on the road sans car by late afternoon! Bring on John O’ Groats!!! .

Thoughtful and sweet, strong and resilient. You’re an absolute joy, and you’re so much stronger than you know. I’m so thankful to have known you another year and witness the growth in your life and in mine, I can’t wait for the next! I know it’ll have more days laughing in the mountains, and nights wrapped in each other’s arms (probably watching The Office). My adventure buddy, my avocado, my favorite person ever, Happy Birthday @emmycain!!!

When the mist rolling in from the big ocean and conseales everything. You suddenly feel that everyone else is gone and the silence just embraces you. It really is a special  and beautiful feeling. 😊 Home alone for a few sec...

We don’t move on weekdays due to work schedules but sometimes, campground reservations get wonky and we have to work with that we’ve got. The stress of packing up on a weekday is pretty intense. Jason has clients on the East and West coasts so we do our best to shoot the gap between each time zone’s early morning hours. We clean and pack as much as we can the night before so that in the morning, it *should* only take an hour of prep before we roll out. .

Okay, so now let’s talk about reality. .

The camper was packed, the tanks were flushed, the kids were fed and then our one and only slide wouldn’t move. It has to be pulled in before we drive. The slide’s switch seized up. Thankfully (if you want to see the silver lining), this happened in freezing temps last year so Jason knew exactly what to do and this time, he didn’t have to fight our camper with freezing fingers in the snow. .

To move the slide manually, J has to shimmy under the camper with a drill that - big tip here - has a charged battery. With about three feet of vertical space, he removes the many screws of a large cover that protects the underbelly of the camper and - another big tip - doesn’t lose any of those screws. Then he has to use the drill upside down to crank the slide in or out. .

We left Ohio this morning and here he is, in a West Virginia casino parking lot where we are camping for a few days, putting the slide out. We’ll order a replacement part (again) when we get to Maryland on Saturday. .

I drove so he could work but still, he lost some time at work today so now he’s gotta hustle to play catch-up while the kids ride bikes at the casino and we laugh about this whole dang thing. Because really, it’s the kind of funny that we run into over and over. Not earth shattering, but certainly not the easiest way to start a Thursday. .

Every lifestyle requires work. Ours just looks a bit upside down.

So to continue along with this week of #transparency, here is a completely unedited photo of mine. It was taken on a beautifully majestic evening as the sun was setting over the dunes in Great Sand Dunes National Park back in January of this year. It was one of the first shots I ever took with my brand new Nikon D3500, and one in which I was still trying to get a feel for my new toy. This was actually an accidental shot, as I was attempting to get more of the landscape in the frame. But I fell in love with this log, and it actually turned out to be one of my favorite pics from the trip! #abeautifulmistake

↳ They were here. 📷: Experience has taught me that even the most precious memories fade with the passing of time. At 283 meters long, the Manhattan Beach Pier has been standing since the 1920’s making it the oldest concrete pier on the west coast.
