Oh boy! It's that time of year here in SLC and just around the corner at home in Bozeman! Lilac blooms fill the air with their glorious fragrance! Ahhh

I live in a place where winter has graced each year of my life with its fresh face, renewing our supply of clean water. I see how the glaciers of my youth are disappearing and how winter has shortened its stay. Perhaps more alarming is knowing that the diversity of life on our beautiful planet is in rapid decline. Stand up for science, for winter and for the EPA today! Let your voice be heard. Thanks to all who are marching today.
Celebrating another ascent of the Captain. Back in the saddle!

@conrad_anker and @alexhonnold just hanging around in the vertical and appreciating the views. They will be in Berkeley together next Friday at the Berkeley Ironworks Gym to benefit Nepali climbers. Come on out and join the fun. Still some room...@berkeleyironworks
Thanks @morgan_rainy for sharing a stroll out the Foothills trail with Maya and me. It's always a pleasure to see wildflowers emerge beneath our snow covered peaks.
Springtime in Montana is always a bit of of give and take with winter. Thankful for these lacy pastel mornings which make feeding the chickens a fairytale adventure.
My hiking buddy is always ready to go and she loves the weather no matter what it does. Thanks for the miles shared Maya!
This yearling Elk was quite vocal today as spring squalls of snow frosted emerging green meadows in Yellowstone. His wasn't the only voice I heard. Cranes called, robins and a single brilliant bluebird sang. Coyotes yelped and howled and twelve Wolves lifted their noses skyward to howl. Bison grazed among snow covered sage and a grizzly fed on a bison who had walked his last trail.my park
Sixteen years ago today, we committed to love and our wedding picture shows that love, joy, sweet bliss of trust and compassion. The more recent image from last June in Tibet captures a similar moment. In between those moments of utter closeness are moments of chaos, pain, confusion, frustration and forgiveness that all comprise love. I love this guy! Thanks for traveling the path, @conrad_anker and Happy Anniversary.
One of my favorite flowers of spring is the Pasque flower. Soft fuzzy blossoms dip their violet bells. The frosty looking foliage adds to a fairy like quality. Love Montana spring!
Freezeout Lake is always a spectacular place to visit as snow geese migrate through Montana.
These two girls are gathering dried twigs from the hillside above their village of Phortse, high in Khumbu, Nepal. It is about halfway around the world from my hometown of Bozeman. But here in Bozeman, we are raising funds this evening at MSU that will help us raise the roof on the Khumbu Climbing Center. In this village of 350, there are over 70 individuals who have stood on the summit of Everest.The KCC building will house a climbing community and provide safe technical education. The earthquake safe building will benefit their village by providing safe haven . @khumbuclimbingcenter alexlowe.org
People like these two make our world a better place! Krista Wright of Polar Bears international and Denver Holt of The Owl Research Institute are passionate advocates for wild species that make our world a better place. Their knowledge and enthusiasm are admirable. Save our wild!@owlresearchinstitute@polarbearsinternational
As many of our dear friends prepare for a busy season of work in the Himalayan, I send a few extra prayers. Check out @khumbuclimbingcenter to stay in the loop.
Thanks to our KCC senior instructors, the ice fall doctors are getting a safe start their dangerous Everest season. Thanks Panuru Sherpa for the image today!
Happy 21 to our youngest son, the Lizard Whisperer. Such a joy to have traveled the path with you, @iloweanker Big love!
On International Women's Day, it is impossible for me to list all of the women in my life who have inspired me. There are so many! This group includes my grandmother, Florence Marchesseau DALY and her sisters. From left, Marge, May, Ruth, Florence and Olive were the daughters of early Montana pioneers, raised on the Grasshopper Valley. They grew up working hard in the fields and the home. All were an early influence on my view of the world. Most lived into their nineties and the two on the left, Margie lived to 104 and May to 100. To all of the fine, strong women I have known including my mom, sisters, inspiring friends at home and in Nepal. Hats off to the women of our world!
I'm super proud of this talented young woman and her incredible work now on display at the Exit Gallery at MSU. Don't miss it!
