Contemplating... what is I love it on top?

 We are a group of like minded souls who knows the feeling of timelessness and power, when you’re surrounded by these mountains, in a canyon, or trekking in the forest, worries seem puny and your imagination soars when you contemplate the silence and mystery of those places. The summits are often dangerously windy, shrouded in mist or snow, and allow only the most enduring and hearty of creatures to survive there and take in a iloveitontop view.

Who is Jen?

 My  vision is to inspire people to be on top of their game also to promote  the value of hard work for the great view, and a place to connect, work  together &  boast about accomplishments.  

I  am a fun, talkative, smart, explorer and It all started with my  parents, who love and respected nature/ outdoors, culture, are  hardworking, genuine and well traveled kind of people. My family every  year sometimes more, would make a 900 mile trek across the Great Plains,  13 hours to be exact, in a ( mini van) to Estes Park, Colorado from St.  Louis, Missouri. I have always been enchanted with my parent’s passion  and dedication to locate a great view  while spending these summers in  Colorado I got the opportunity to hike most of the Rockies, see amazing  canyons, waterfalls, and sand dunes

One of my  fondest memories was accomplishing Longs Peak with my dad; I was  twelve, it was one of the most memorable moments of my life and a huge  part of who I am today.

I  am a mother of 2 ROCK STAR girls; Sami, and Carter, who are always up to accompany me on an adventure, while still building  chapters in their own life, This extra time has allowed me some time to  follow my passion, give back and explore for adventure. Each adventure  is a new challenge to overcome and an opportunity to make new memories!

I was destined to  fall in love with nature and want to pass the power, confidence and love that you obtain from these outdoor adventures and experiences to the next generation. 

I live for that AMAZING view.. I have always felt, I possessed a wanderlust spirit. The mountains, land and sea remind me of my mortality, Nature allows me a reason to get out and travel, it allows me to meet and forge strong ties with other hardworking positive people that can love to the extreme, respect themselves and appreciate nature.

This way of life keeps moving me forward in my spiritual growth, it gives me motivation, it helps erase the sadness I absorb form the daily dose of horrible humanity, it keeps me humble, it tests the limits that I (and others ) have set for myself, and while at times suffering from exhaustion, battling the elements (extreme cold or heat), blisters, altitude sickness ,low oxygen, falls and other dangers…. 

It’s a comforting way to test my ability to absorb and endure punishment.

Jacket Pick for 2017

Skyward Jacket by Outdoor Research

I love this jacket!  I had been wearing the same jacket for years and after my was stolen, I decided on the  Women's Skyward Jacket   . I'm 5'4 and 125 lbs,  purchased a Small and I can fit layers nicely underneath it.  I've worn  it for hiking, trail work and as a wind protector on the beach, it has been great in all kinds of weather, it has performed great.  * Really like the side zips with buttons, it makes carrying a backpack with a hip belt much easier, no back of the jacket riding up, it also kept me warm and dry.

The combination of air permeability in the  Skyward Jacket’s AscentShell™ 3L fabric, with its hem-to-bicep venting,  lets you go full throttle without overheating. Built backcountry-tough  with a bit of stretch and both a wire-brimmed halo hood and stand-up  collar, this do-it-all piece will be your most valued companion, whether  you’re out hiking, charging through heavy, wet precip or plowing through blower  pow.
