I just love my life. All I want is what I already have and I hope I never take it for granted! 💙
Successful trip to the Cascades ❤️
Summer is not over! One of the most amazing sunsets that I’ve ever experienced in the Cascades... just me and my pup taking it all in...
1 weekend, 2 hikes, 19.6 Miles. Happy Labor Day weekend you guys! . . . . . . #pnwonderland #hikingwashington #hike #glacier #oysterdomehike #mountrainier #sunrise #burroughsmountain
Looking back at Big Four Mountain from the Perry Creek trail.
Not going to lie, I usually don’t make it out of the tent for sunrise... but I’m glad I did this morning!
Flying over the #cascades!  #mountrainier #washington
Bears Breast Mountain, standing at 7,197 feet, overlooks much of the alpine lakes wilderness. Jarring in stature and composition, BBM is a rocky dream of mine. The upper summit block has solid alpine climbing, and the chutes leading up are classic Cascade scrambles. It was almost painful to have this peak constantly on the peripheral... I couldn’t stop planning an approach, thinking of the gear necessary, and getting all around stoked about the idea of a good old suffer fest.
Nothing beats hiking up a ridge at sunset, not knowing what you’ll find...

We started the day off hiking below the clouds. They filled the valley and obstructed our view from seeing nearly anything. And then we finally crested the steep ridge into Gothic Basin to these views! This hike wasn’t easy, but the most rewarding hardly ever are. One more week until the final push of school. I needed this. #thisiswhyihike #getoutside #optoutside #hike #hiking #hikingadventures #washingtonstate #washingtoncascades #choosemountains #womenwhohike #alpinelakes #daretoexplore #pnw #pnwonderland
Loyal to the very last mile of our 12mi trek today. He even spent a half hour swimming in the multiple alpine lakes that Gothic Basin has to offer. Ah, to be 2 again 😉#hiking #hikingadventures #neverhikealone🐾 #dogswhohike #dogsofinstagram #mixbreed #daretoexplore #washingtonstate #washingtoncascades #mountbakersnoqualmienationalforest #publiclands #adventure #adventuretime #optoutside #mykindofvacation #happypup #pnw #pnwonderland
A "moderate" hike in Mt Rainier or so it is posted.  It was more than I expected.  Five miles in five hours. Whoosh!  We had a great time and it was perfect weather.  On a new hiking adventure next week.  Not sure where.
My favorite place to hike: the subalpine.
Just got back from my favorite trip of the summer and quite possibly of all time... Lakes, mountain peaks, and layers in every direction... I’ve been dreaming of visiting this place for several years now and it did not disappoint... We had the place to ourselves for nearly two days, with perfect weather and amazing sunsets... Thank you PNW!
I once slept in front of a ranger station to get a permit for this spot and didn’t, so this was a 4 year wait and totally worth it. Also not sure I need to do 4600’ gain again anytime soon but it was fun sleeping on top of the Cascades! (If you scroll through you can see the toilet on top of a glacier arm lol)🚽🥾🧐
Hike up to Becklers Peak in the Cascades just south of Seattle and the mountains here are absolutely breathtaking. Just 90 minutes south of Seattle you can completely separate yourself from the city and find yourself engulfed in greenery.  #seattle #cascades #mountains #hike #hiking #legalizedit✅ #getlost #washington #feelfee
I’ve drank coffee in a lot of places, I really have, but this may be my all-time favorite. An outcropping of rock served as the ideal spot to watch the day start while brewing up some liquid gold. Two or three cups later - along with some environmentally induced introspection - I felt pretty damn good about the day ahead.
Splashes of pink flowers jut out from the talus slopes lining the base of cascade mountains. Backpacking in the cascades is wildly unique as you move from lush green forests below to aging peaks above. Loose rock and a dissipating tree line indicate your presence in the alpine where it’s the job of wild flowers to paint the otherwise grey landscape.

Happy #firelookoutfriday This one is a beauty...especially at sunset. Thanks for the invite @hawaiian_grl_pnw ☺️ #pnw #pnwonderland #hiking #firelookout #washingtonfirelookout #mountrainier #nationalparks #mtrainier #travelwashington #washingtonstate #upperleftusa @explorewashstate
It was profound to watch from a distance as my dad soaked in a view unlike any other he’d experienced. This was by no measure his first time relishing in the glory of the cascades, but it was his first time having backpacked his way to the hard earned view. Having raised me in a way that built my affinity for the outdoors, it was a proud moment to help him experience something new, and perhaps eye opening. He’s never been short on desire to reach these places, but now owning the experience of having done it, many more plans for future trips are now in the making.
24 days until my next run up the Manitou Incline! Out in the State of Washington training on Cascade Mountain Range. #climbtocrushkidcancer #crushkidcancer

It's just so darn peaceful and beautiful. I didn't wanna leave. 😭😍 I am so appreciative to able to see such a beautiful area. 💚
Oh the places the #mountaineerbandana shows up! Classic! And the people, wow, who carry our branded bandana to these places, righteousness! All of you rock! Thanks for carrying a piece of our humble little shop all over the world on your adventures! Keep on keep'n on and being awesome, hope our bandana bring you all safe passage in the mountains!
These little guys have the honor to be one of my absolute favorite species of the mountainous US—-the American pika! Many a long day hiking is improved by listening for their calls, or spotting them scurrying across rocks. All summer long, they seem to be constantly frenzied as they gather, dry, and store their winter caches (seen here). They’re so dependent on cool temperatures that many populations are being forced gradually upward—-they’re so sensitive that they’re considered one of the best canaries for global warming out here. But the nature of the habitat where they live will eventually make it impossible to just keep moving higher. Real animals in the real world: this should be a real part of discussion on climate change, policy and advocacy—-I don’t think anyone who has ever seen a pika can fail to love them, but it is less well-known how endangered they may be. One has to believe we will protect the things we love.
Another weekend of up downs 🏔
25 Mile Loop 🚲 around the North Cascades! First time mountain biking and I am HOOKED!!
I would come here and chop some wood, just like the people there once did.
There are worse places to butterfly coil your rope. Same summit/sunset as my last post - never more excited to get back into this zone to hike/climb very soon! Climber - @csweetin  @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #whyihike
Got to revisit the PNW after four years away!  It’s so wonderful to be able to enjoy familiar places in a totally new way (when I lived in Washington before I knew nothing about alpine rock climbing)! On this day, we did Serpentine Arete on Dragontail Peak and took some photos for a highlight piece on alpine rock climbing for Backcountry.com! I’ve added the link in my story today if you want to check it out!

Another weekend, another adventure
missing these views
This waterfall was quite a surprise for me. I had no idea it even existed until I came up on a sign for the falls. I figured I stop and take a quick look.

This shot always captivates me, especially the uniqueness of the mountains’ shapes • • 📸 with: Nikon D70 ~ lenses I use: Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 // Nikon D70 Kit lens Edited with: #lightroomcc  #mountains #cascades #washingtonstate #nature #landscape #photography #nikon #tamron #lightroom
Oh hey there Ned! Gleefully gazing upon my sweet Needles 50k finishers pin during a post-race adventure run up into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness with some solid adventure besties. • Thank you @sirrunzalot And Rich White for such a brutal yet oh so beautiful reason to catch up with friends and reconnoiter parts of the Cascade Crest 100 course. A BIG congrats to our little big Timber pup for crushing her first mountain ultra!!! Minutes before the start, she jumped on us and told us, “TAKE ME MOMMA TAKE ME DAD!” and so happy that we took her. It was so magical to have her along for the adventure and see her run untethered and free through the mountains for that long. This romp in the central cascades is just what I needed to stay stoked and focused on the big show come August. • 📸: @jenngwenlove • #needles50k #patagoniatrailrunning #heyned #running #ultrarunning #longruns #protecathletics #krissyplan #trailrunning #mydogismy #traininginnumbers
