Nice double summit adventure of yellow hill and elbow peak today. Good leg burner training hike with TONS of wildflowers as far as the eye could see :) slice of heaven  #pnw #optoutside #ourpnw #washington #wanderwashington #upperleftusa #discoverwashington #pnwwanderer #wanderlust #pnwphotographer #pnwlife #pnwwonderland #whyihike #womenwhohike #outdoorwomen #herwanderfullife #alpinebabes #roamtheplanet #cascadiaexplored #destinationpnw #summit #peakbagging #yellowhill #elbowpeak
We showed up dressed and ready for the beach party to kickoff to summer ... 40° temps, likely with 17° windchill ... we were a little under dressed for the beach party. 🥶 Always a good time with the hiking family! 😎🤦‍♀️😂 . .

A sunset so good you just gotta stop and stare 🤩
These precious little cactus balls with three perfect blossoms completely won me over on our trail hike.  What are these and how do I grow ten million and are they safe to snuggle?
A beautiful start and end to the day, with some cool weather miles in between.  1. Silverwood Lake was a real gem. The trail snaked high above and around for some outstanding views.  2. Crossing the rainbow bridge, leaving camp for the day 3. Exiting the deep creek gorge 4. Should be some big mountains behind those clouds  5. Cruising through some canyons  6. Dodging raindrops 7. A picnic area with a view 8. Hikers on the ridge with ominous fog creeping down the mountainside  9. Marina on the lake 10. A floating outhouse?
How did you spend your Memorial Day weekend?
Pretty epic weekend in the Kawekas🌲 #whyihike #makeithomenz @mountainsafetycouncil
I co-led a walk today with @cherylstrayed, one of my favorite authors, in Telluride, Colorado. It’s silly, I’ve known about this for months, but I was afraid to say it out loud for fear it wouldn’t really happen. The people were lovely, warm, and excited to be there. It rained off and on, but we ended with a delicious buffet of Thai appetizers and drinks provided by the festival. What an absolute dream! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So many thank yous to @mountainfilm and Cheryl Strayed for bringing me here and for the amazing opportunities this weekend. It’s been beautiful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📍Telluride, Colorado. This is Ute, Apache, Pueblo+ land. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag #unlikelyhikers to be featured!
This is most definitely a journey for the soul. I am so grateful to spend so much time in the mountains with @thejuniperfund Nepal Operations Manager @sherpatseringdolker *and* to be able to share this place that is so special to me with @mandymooremm and her crew of friends (@streicherhair @chaseweideman @thejendaltonshow @julesapse) has been just pure fun. The are so many reasons why I love being a guide and moments like these are among the top of the list. #whyihike #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer ••• This adventure has been made truly special by being able to share it with my family. Photo by my partner in all things @tyler__reid, probably while he was also holding our baby. 💗
I think it might be about time to revive that summer bucket list 🏞️🌄 🎶 Spazzy D - My Love

Sunday morning on Icicle Creek. It rained. It rained even more than yesterday. Actually yesterday it rained, today it straightforwardly poured but it’s the mountains and mountains get moody sometimes but despite their moodiness they are nothing but spectacular. Do you see it the same way? . . . #womenwhohike #wwhmember #hikelikeawoman #likeamountaingirl #optoutside #mountainsarecalling #adventurekeepers #takemoreadventures #worldhikers #lgoambassador #ladiesgetoutside #hiking #radgirlslife #hikingadventures #mountaingirls #choosemountainswomen #welivetoexplore #pnwonderland #hiking #backpacking #mountains #hikerslife #liveyouradventure #whyihike #hiking #seekoutsideadventures  #liverefreshed  #createyourtrail #pnwcompass #pnwhq  @pnwonderland @pnwescapes @wonderful_washington @50shadesofpnw @destination.pnw @pnw.crew @pnw.paradise @pnwisbeautiful @seattletimes @destinationwashington @washingtondiscovered @visitseattle @pnw.shooters @pnw.moods @destination.pnw
We crossed the 300 mile mark and spent half the day soaking in some natural hot springs... really roughing it! 😝
The view from #indianhead is one of the most spectacular in the area, but looking at it from above is just as beautiful! It’s crazy sitting at the Indian head lookout the mountains look so big as they form the iconic valley. From here it seems so tiny looking down. It gives some awesome perspective of how big these mountains are- add the golden colors of sunrise and it’s a view I’ll never forget ⛰ - - - -  #adks #adklife #hikeadk  #hikingobsessed  #idhikethat #whyihike #hiking_daily #iclimbmountains #girlsthathike #mountainlust #adklife #ysbh #optoutside #rei #findyourbackcountry #wildernessculture  #adventureculture #welivetoexplore #adventureenthusiasts #roamtheplanet #forceofnature #optoutside #hikeny #scenicny #colvin #mtcolvin #adk46 #highpeaks snapshots feel so beautiful!! **Thank you ** : brittany_hikes_all_day
Best start to the camping season ever! Just us girls took on spending Saturday at one of the coveted waterfront spots at The Narrows in Waskesiu! It was Emma’s first night in a tent and it was so awesome! We had marshmallows, we played with glow sticks and, aside from the rude raven at some unholy hour, slept so good! I love making these memories with my favorite adventure buddies! • • • • • #exploresask #waskesiu #prairiesnorth #mysask #saskatchewan #btbamamas #lifeoutdoors #girlsdoloveoutdoors #optoutside #campingwithkids #kidswhoexplore #iwasbornwild #adventuremamas #lifeoutdoors #whyihike #optoutside #outdoorfamilies #outdoorkids
Dandy was not impressed by the length or elevation gain on this hike 🐽 📸 @tommcmahon_
Hiking season has arrived. See ya’ll on the trails. ✌🏼🥾 #hikela
Confession: these sunglasses are hiding tears of joy. . . .  I honestly thought at one point not too long ago that I would never climb a mountain again. I thought that I’d never see a view like this again. Mere months ago, my husband had to pick me up and carry me back to the car when my legs simply gave out and would not support me anymore. Mere months ago, I bought a secondhand wheelchair. I still have it, stashed in my attic.  But my hard work in neuro rehab - and it has been HARD - has paid off! My worst symptoms are in remission and I climbed not only 1, but 7 mountains over the last string of days. I knew it was an accomplishment, but it really hit me today on my hike up Pitchoff. I’ve tackled more in less than a week than I feared I might ever be able to do in my life again. And I’m not even done...I have 2 more mountains to go before I’m done. I realized, I am capable of more than I ever knew I could be. I truly feel as if I’ve somehow managed to do the impossible. To me, each summit is nothing short of a miracle.  And so when I got to the top and saw the amazing view, I cried.  I’m not embarrassed. The struggle I went through to get to that moment is real. The loss and fear and grief I experienced over the last 2 years was real. And the joy of realizing the magnitude of my victory is oh so real. I’ll probably have many more moments in the coming months that bring the same sort of emotions and tears. In fact, I sincerely hope that I do. But for now, I’m enjoying living in this moment.
It’s a different hike every time! Straight up right now starting at Lone Pine Lake. This shot was taken between Outpost and Mirror Lake. Lots of snow out there, folks!  #outdoors #whyihike #hiking #hikemore  #hike #hikemoreworryless #idhikethat #hikingadventures #ilovehiking #johnmuirtrail #easternsierra #mountwhitney #mtwhitney #sheadventures #pct #pcta #pacificcresttrail #cancerthriver #cancerwarrior #breastcancersurvivor #sierranevada #easternsierra

Not disappointed with this trip choice.  I didn’t plan on it being the Waterfall Trip, but I’ve hiked to about a dozen so far (and didn’t fall in any...although there was a close call). The summit views didn’t disappoint either!!! #theporkies #porcupinemountains #porcupinemountainswildernessstatepark #vista #waterfalls #hiking #whyihike #michiganupperpeninsula #upmichigan
Even in the eerie dense fog, oregon is probably one of  the most beautiful areas in the world. In this area when the fog lifts you can see beautiful snow capped mountains and thousands of acres of lava beds. #lovemystate #adventuremore #pnwonderland #oregon #pnw #whyihike #hikerlife #traillife #idhikethat #exploreoregon #gooutside #greatoutdoors #adventure #lava #seekadventure #hikeoregon #oregonhikes #visitbend #cascademountains #centraloregon
Summit Sun daze! ☆ ☆ ☆ We got up and our early this morning to beat the heat, but it was still a beast of a hike. By the time we got to the summit we were both more than happy to take our time and enjoy the breeze (well until the black flies decided we looked super tasty). A moment like this, relaxing and enjoying the view with my partner in crime is #whyihike ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆  #adventuresofoliver #optoutside #thegreatoutdoors #explore #neverstopexploring #wander #adventure #adventuretime #adventuredogsofficial #dogsonadventures #hike  #hikingwithdogs #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogsthathike #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinstaworld #bestwoof10k #dogphotography #dogoftheday #sendadogphoto  #buzzfeedanimals #dogsthatexplore #getouside #outdoorswithdogs #bandedpines #enjoytheadventure #springintony #iloveny
Last one on the Yosemite trip. Tribute to El Capitan. I couldn’t take my eyes off this spectacular wall. So I stayed, amazed by its beauty and if you’re quiet enough, you can ear it whispering the stories of the athletes who climbed it. And still wondering how @alexhonnold  did it. #elcapitan #yosemite #nationalpark #freesolo #climbing
Welcome to the world lil fawn. Crossed the trail in front of me and got back to mama in the woods with a bit of help from the park ranger. #whyihike#lifeisamazing #getoutdoors #forestmagic #adventure #explore 😊🙏💚✌
✨ Mᴏᴠᴇ ᴀᴡᴀʏ sʜᴇ sᴀɪᴅ, ᴘᴜʀsᴜᴇ ᴀʀᴛ sʜᴇ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ...ᴀɴᴅ sᴏ sʜᴇ ᴅɪᴅ ✨ . . . I was turning 18 and about to graduate from high school. I knew it was time to leave my roots for a little bit. I heard about Bend and Portland, two of my dad’s fav places to snowboard in the 80s. I heard the art scene was dope so I took a leap. I applied to as many colleges as I could in OR. I was moving, I would not know a soul, and I would be starting over in a foreign place. Well, like father like daughter and 15+ years later I call Oregon home. I have many “homes” and OR reminds me a lot of HI, sooo I think I’ll stay for a long while ✔︎ . . . I got my BA in graphic design before nursing school. I LOVED working as a PT designer in Portland back in 2007-2010; the good “old” Portland days ☔︎ The stoke was high as I went from island wahine to that down jacket life living in my 1st big city, in my early 20s, and w/o a clue what was in store! The endless dinner parties in my studio on SE 14th & Belmont and first Thursday art walks when the pearl district was still a warehouse jungle. Seems like forever ago! I worked for Cinco Design amongst brilliant creatives and did some freelancing on the side for friends. It was hard at times makin’ the rent as a new grad artist, but so much fun and endless networking opportunities! . . . Design was 🔥 and still is. I can’t help but stop and nerd out on a good mural, typography, photograph, pressed piece of work, etc. you get it... Portland is exploding with great design today. It’s literally at your fingertips. #staywildportland ✨ Art is my first ❤︎ and always will be ✌︎ . . . . 📸 @mpc243  #graphicdesign #designpdx #oregon #bridgelove #footpath #cityliving #artist #adobe #eddiebauer #typography #print #portlandart #photography #hawaiittooregon #oregonlove #hawaiiroots #islandgirlinacity #thispicsaysacockbrand #whyiwalk #whyihike  #walkmore #optoutside
Spent the day on a jet boat on the Snake River in North American's deepest river gorge (despite popular belief, the Grand Canyon is only 6,000' deep, Hell's Canyon is 7,990' deep)
Wading waist deep in a river only twenty feet wide with canyon walls towering a thousand feet high, you definitely see what makes the Narrows in Zion National Park a bucket-list hike. #zion
“To continue our trip or stay here forever?” - thoughts from Maria Island.
Why take horizontal trails when you can go vertical? Sore legs, en route.
