Throwing sand all over her mom, she giggled to no end. Mom, a little surprised couldn’t help but laugh herself. One thing I learned about these parents while on the hike with them, is how laid back they are. Clearly, they know how to be patient, how to let things roll off their back and how to let kids be kids.

Mom and daughter laying down in the sand as mom gets sand poured over her. Both girls laughing. Camelsback Trailhead Boise, ID.
Dad standing at the top of the stairs at Camelsback Park in Boise ID. Converse shoes and short jeans carrying a kid on his backpack with hands down. Relaxed. Overlooking city.

These two adults also double as my coaches at my Crossfit gym. I am making new friends and new clients everywhere I go. I am so blessed to live in this beautiful city. And while I don’t actually LIVE in Boise, I am there all the time. The quintessential houses and shops that line the North end of Boise are gorgeous. Food is always good and the company always better. Idaho folks really know a lot about how to make people feel comfortable. There is never a time I haven’t had a “Hello” waiting me as I walk past someone on the street and of course, the views and the city itself, are so worth all the possibility of making the trek up here.

Little girl excited to climb the stairs and reach the top at Camelsback Park in Boise ID. Standing and waving her arms and twirling in circles with mom and dad standing close by.

So next time you want to head out on the trail, especially if you want to remember the day forever, give me a call. There is not one adventure I can’t try and document in some way as you explore the world around here. It’s worth it. Trust me.

Much love,


Oh yeah…

Don’t forget that I have some fall adventure session openings left and my Christmas Tree hunting sessions are also coming up quick. Don’t miss out!
