Santa Cruzin’ the CCT

We cruised into Santa Cruz County just in time to meet a big south swell hitting the coast! The whole community was buzzing with palpable excitement, as ocean lovers from all walks of life emerged to enjoy the waves. We were jones-ing for a surf, despite the dumping...

MoJo in San Mateo

MoJo in San Mateo

We zoomed through San Francisco in a whirlwind of family, friends, fantastic trails, and fabulous fun. The City and County of SF share the same geographical boundaries, so in the blink of an eye, all 11 miles of SF County’s coastline had flown by, and we were entering...

Hangin’ in Humboldt on the CCT

Hangin’ in Humboldt on the CCT

We woke up in our boat-in campsite feeling like we were in the jungle. Hummingbirds zoomed through the clearing above our tent, chirping and buzzing overhead. The morning fog accumulated in dew drops on the leafy walls around us. We packed up and took a last look...

First days in Humboldt County

First days in Humboldt County

We started our 6th day on the California Coastal Trail on the north side of the Klamath River, where Oregos, a helpful Yurok spirit, is embodied as a large rock at the rivermouth. Oregos and her sister, another stalwart rock on the south side, help to guide the salmon...

  • Happy #WorldWaterDay! 💦 Today we consciously celebrate and appreciate earth's freshwater resources 🌏🌍🌎 We also take today to recognize the global water crisis: 663 million people lack improved drinking water sources and 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with feces. 👎The theme for #WorldWaterDay2017 is wastewater💧💩 Globally 80% of all wastewater from our homes, farms, industries, and cities is not treated or reused. It flows back into the environment, polluting lands, rivers, and oceans. Instead of wasting wastewater, we need to reduce and reuse it. By exploiting this valuable resource, we will make the water cycle work better for every living thing! #waterislife #cleanwaterforall #wastemanagement #river #water
  • #TBT Team MoJo is missing #traillife! Last summer when we through-hiked the entire #californiacoastaltrail, it deepened our friendship more than we could have imagined. Mo and Jo spent nearly every moment together, and got asked if they were twins constantly 👯 😂(actually not that ridiculous since we typically wore the same trail outfit and were always decked out in teal to match the ocean 🐳) We shared our trusty tent and cooked dinners by the fireside with our Auntie Ali every night 🌚⛺️Ahhh the good life. Unfortunately, our current living situations do not have us in the same town, but San Francisco marks our midway point. For women, having a lady gang to go adventuring with is so key! If you're lucky enough to live near your besties, give them a hug and tell them how they inspire you! Now get outside and get in nature together. #friendsthathiketogether #wishyouwerehere #letsgotothebeach #seasisters #ladygang
  • We stand in solidarity with the International Women's Strike. We call for equity, justice, and human rights for all women and gender oppressed people. We know this to be true; the rise of women is the rise of nations. WOMEN OF THE WORLD UNITE!!!

  • Coastwalkin' in Virgin Islands National Park is dreamy 😍🌴🐠☀️👣This park protects 60% of St. John's breathtaking white sand beaches, mangroves, and volcanic mountains, plus acres of coral reef and seagrass beds. Thank you @nationalparkservice for protecting these natural treasures for all of us to enjoy! #supportnationalparks #optoutside #getoutside #findyourpark #virginislands #virginislandsnationalpark @virginislandsnps #nationalparks #beachwalk #oceanminded

  • #frëakyfriday?👉More like #freakin'awesome!😏😂So stoked that President Obama officially declared an expansion of the #CaliforniaCoastalNationalMonument (CCNM)! The CCNM protects the 20,000+ offshore rocks, reefs, and seastacks along the coast of California. With this expansion, #POTUS protected 6,230 more acres, including onshore "units" of coastal mainland! The #CaliforniaCoastalTrail is how we access this #NationalMonument, so we look forward to an expansion of the CCT🌀 as well!! HURRAY!!!!! Want to know more? Check out @usinterior! *

  • 👏😃👍Hurray for an excellent article in the @sfchronicle about the #CaliforniaCoastalTrail and the Coastal Conservancy!! "The Conservancy has taken a big idea and made it a reality one piece at a time...They have the perseverance and the persistence to see the big picture." Keep up the great work @ca_coastal!! 🌊👣(Link in bio)
  • Traveling for the holidays? ✈️ Many airports now have water refill stations, so bring your reusable bottle and fill 'er up once you get through security. Stay hydrated and plastic free! #refusesingleuse #nomoreplastic #oceanminded #plasticfree #plasticpollutes #take3forthesea #protectwhatyoulove #breakfreefromplastic
  • This license plate is too good! 😂 We've been seeing it around Ventura and were stoked to finally meet the owner. This day was made even more fantastic when we were surfing and got to watch a harbor seal wrangle its catch, a good-sized octopus! The seal was hanging out in the lineup, gnawing on the cephalopod, its tentacles flailing about. What a cool nature encounter!! Then, to top it all off, we ran into our sea sisters from norcal, @deals_bk and @jensavage1969 from @surfrider. They made the trip down south to have their voices heard at the @coastalcommission meeting. Way to go ladies!! #oceanminded #protectwhatyoulove #mojocoastwalk #surf #cstreet
  • Wonderful wrap up to our Explore the Coast grant with a presentation to the Coastal Conservancy board. We are so thankful for all that @ca_coastal does to protect and restore the coast! #coastalpolicy #coastalaccess #CaliforniaCoastalTrail #coastalconservancy #californiacoast #oceanminded #protectwhatyoulove #mojocoastwalk
