If you're visiting Oglebay during the summer, you have to get the summer activity pass! This pass gives you unlimited access to the lake activities, pool, tennis, fishing, mini golf, par-3 gold, and zoo! Pictured here is the beautiful Schenk Lake! During the summer, the resort is buzzing with summer fun! Our favorite parts were paddling boating on the lake and seeing the animals at the zoo! The Good Zoo at Oglebay is an accredited zoo with excellent conservation efforts! ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #wvliving #liveyouradventure #womenoutdoors #westvirginia #almostheaven #girlsborntotravel #everywhereforward #studentsoftheworld #studentoftheworld #studentnomad #studentuniverse #femaletravelbloggers #wvstateparks #travelbloggerlife #nomadgirls #exploretheplanet #worldexplorer #wildandwonderful #travelingwomen #ladieswhotravel #westvirginiagirl #gotowv #roamingwomen #womenwhoexplore #oglebaypark #lovinwv #oglebay #globelletravels ⁠ ⁠ #girlaroundtheworld @wheelingvisitor #VisitWheeling @oglebaypark

Hey lovelies! Just your typical American Woman here! Yesterday someone asked what exactly do we do on social media. ??? I gave them the benefit of a doubt and assumed that they DID read our bio but it just needed to be more clear. So... what we do is collaborate with local businesses to highlight locally based travel experiences, promote restaurants and locally produced foods around the Midwest with @midwestfoodscene , and host neighborhood tours @lunchwithlocals. You'll notice a theme of all things local. ...And food... We like to eat! Most important, we also share stories of our personal experiences and culture to do our part in changing the narrative of the single black mother and the black child. I added this info to our bio just in case. #citygirlstravel

Rocky root-y early morning hike to this beautiful vibrant green meadow today! Couldn't have been a more perfect day for it! The trail was full of waterfalls, wildflowers, and clear mountain views (Rainier, Adams, and Helens)! This meadow was so lusciously green and the avalanche lillies were poppin'. Also saw some paintbrush, a little bear grass, an interesting bird, and 2 marmots! Mt. Rainier National Park never disappoints! Bonus was we didn't see anyone until almost halfway back down! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #summer #mountains #mtrainier #findyourpark #meadow #wildflowers #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #hiking #hike #outdoors #nature #upperleftusa #optoutside #getoutside #beautiful #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #roamtheplanet #view #pnwcollective #pnwlife #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #explore #adventure #outdoorwomen #hikingadventures #washingtontrails

I did something today that I have never done before. I hiked alone. It was wonderful. It was serene. It was slightly scary when I saw a bear 🐻 I am not sure why it has taken me this long to build up the courage to do this. I know I am fully capable. I just have never tested myself as the only one who is able to make the decisions. I have always felt comfortable knowing there are other people with me even if I am the leader/guide/most experienced. I’m glad I did and I plan to do it again and again. From a risk perspective, it gives me more opportunities to learn. From a personal experience, it gives me time with nature to reflect.

What if we re-charged ourselves as often as we did our phones? 🗞 . Let’s talk guilt. Guilt of taking time for ourselves. Why is it we feel so guilty for doing something for ourselves? If we took time to recharged ourselves would we then tap into our full potential? Just a thought that came up yesterday. . Today I’m taking a me day to recharge, try a new workout, hang by the pool and have a pizza night with friends! 🍕😋 . How do you recharge? @somewear_elsewhere 📷: @mvandersluis

Routine #sunset log photo on a secluded #beach — all thanks to @unoblink who told us about this spot 📸🌊 . I met Christian on a solo Europe trip 3 summers ago, and he happened to be in #Waikiki at the same time as us. He’s from Australia, WHAT ARE THE CHANCES?! Because of him, we experienced the best garlic shrimp (Giovanni’s!) on the way up the coast in search of this log on a beach.

The Anaconda-Pintler wilderness kicked my butt, tested my will power and had me dig pretty deep (excessive use of cussing may or may not have helped). This is pretty unforgiving wilderness. The wildlife is as amazing as it is scary. The climbs are brutal and at times even going downhill is a challenge. I've bathed in Deet to keep the mosquitoes away. Cried from exhaustion. Scrambled up and down the trail. Run to get out of thunderstorms. Laid in my tent, hugging my bear spray and been too scared to find what's walking around it. Pretty sure had there been a road to dip out to, I would have. But in the end, I just kept putting one foot in front of the other. 👣 #thruhike #thetrek #trekthecdt #cdt2019 #withguthook #wildernessculture #womenwhohike #mountainlife #photography #landscapephotography #optoutside #getoutstayout #likeamountaingirl #womenwhoexplore #sheexplores #outdoorwomen #allaboutadventures #discoverearth #goatworthy #outdoors

Hiking is something I love to do no matter where I go. It’s a great way to see places from a different perspective, and to get away from the busier crowd of people. I also love the conversation that comes with others while out hiking! The other day we hiked Wayna Picchu mountain and took in a whole new view of Machu Picchu. Thanks @tarabyrne11 for helping me with this photo. Tara is a student pilot 👩🏼‍✈️ which I think is SO neat! One of my dream jobs would to be a helicopter pilot. I admire those who have a passion for flying, and taking on that career @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #ebcontributor #liveyouradventure * * I brought with me one backpack, the 30L Bygone and it’s been great not only for the hikes but for just the day to day touring and adventuring we have been doing around Peru. It’s also great for air travel - with its laptop compartment and all the other pockets! I have linked it in my stories! #freshairandfreedom

One of my favourite things is wake up and opening up the blinds to see the morning view. This one was pretty perfect. 🏔 . ~ Sun is shining, a tree to say hello and mountains in the distance all while Baron is snuggled in. Makes for a very slow start to the morning. #camperlife #mountainlover #banffnationalpark

Upps, rain 💦in July . Dark clouds over Lake Chidenguele in Mozambique, a rainbow 🌈 in my background and a veil of rain on the horizon. The sun rays only occasionally found a way through the cloud cover today and a hefty downpour concluded the golden hour. My sundowner was short-lived, for the harmony of the pic I had to fill the glass again and when it really started to rain shortly afterwards I was a bit tipsy 🥴 after the quick gulp and only able to hurry into Toyo to sit it out. This turned into a short nap and when I woke up again, the rain had stopped and I had to prepare my dinner in the darkness. Anyway clouds , sun and rain do make a good atmospheric picture, don’t you think... . #sunset #moodygram #sundowner #cloudporn #goldenhour #happyhour #rain #chidenguele #mozambique #travelafrica #overlandtrip #overlandafrica #myjourney #explorerwomen #womenwhoexplore #womenoverlandingtheworld #overlandafrica2019 #everydayeverywhere #stayandwonder #nomadiclife #mytravelgram #atraveldiary #roadtrippin #roadtripmozambique #followmydreams #shetravels #travellife #solofemaletravel #travelstory #enjoythelittlethingsinlife
