#1: Hiking the JMT & Summiting Mount Whitney!
.
Talking to PCT, JMT and Mount Whitney hikers about gear for two months sure has a way of making you hyped to get on the trail yourself! While we were a bit disappointed that our summer work ended slightly earlier than expected, we took advantage of the time between our work ending and burning man to hop on the JMT. We got blessed with our own version of trail magic the whole way: first, we lucked out with our hitch to Tuolumne and found a lovely woman headed from Lone Pine all the way to SF who brought us right to the permit office, then we were able to snag a permit to start the very next morning, *then* we met awesome people along the way (like @princessandpants2017, the two goofballs in the second image), oh and we also ran into literal trail magic when a guided group had to downsize their provisions just in time for a lunch feast just after Glen Pass, one of the harder passes on the trail. I snagged a bottle of boysenberry syrup and gifted out shots of it on summit passes, which spread the love even more, and matt got his mayo fix so he could put mayo on all the things (gross).
.
 If you get on the JMT SOBO yourself, we 100% recommend timing your Whitney summit with either sunset or sunrise. We chose the latter and there's really no better way to cap off an awesome experience than watching the sun crest the horizon from the tallest peak in the lower 48.

Cuts, scrapes, mosquitoes and alpine starts.  There’s something rewarding about getting up real early to hike somewhere before breakfast.  Seeing storms roll in at sunrise over the Yukon mountains was one of the most cinematic experiences I have had.

The Art of the Alpine Start. When it's cold and dark it's easy to forget about the sunscreen. Splats is light and small, so it's a no-brainer to toss some in your bag.

Red Rock, where it's too hot to climb in the sun in mid-winter. @teddyyoung26 and I opted for shade and a 1030am alpine start on Inti Watana (1500 ft, 12 pitches, 5.10c) yesterday. Still got back to the ground with a few hours of light to spare.

Not the colorful mountaintop sunrise I’d hoped for, but a summit before breakfast is always a surefire way to start the day right. #bearpeak

Because of the summer temperatures and difficulty finding water, we often chose to get up early and walk through dawn, resting during the hottest part of the day to continue in the afternoon.

Few places on Earth cause you to wonder more at the world like the mountain shadow in alpine glow across a sea of ice and clouds.

Waking up at 4:30a sucks, but getting on the skin track with the headlamps on, realizing it dumped 6-8”, and laying down first tracks does not. Awesome day floating with @philsterno, and thanks for setting the track all morning!

Alpenglow, I miss you.  I won’t see much of you this year as I forego rock climbing to pedal a bicycle.  Here’s a flashback to being above the pond and headed into the boulder field on the approach to the Petit in RMNP.  #alpenglow #itsjustbikes #alpinestart

Intentional breaths calm tenuous moments. 📸 @hennataylorfilms ——————————————-—————— I have not yet figured out how people use cracks without excessive amounts of tape and come away unscathed. 🤷🏼‍♀️#stilllearning  #zombiefingers #helmetflare #Moonlightbuttress #redefinefeminine #teamgigglesandsunshine #hiphopgonewild #sheadventures
5am push up the stairway. Headlamps in the dark make the ice look so cool. Tyson Taylor on lead. In all his years of climbing ice he’s never upgraded his tools. Says they give better feedback than lighter models. #iceclimbing #climbing #provo #provocanyon #provocanyonice #stairwaytoheaven #apron #alpinestart #blues #nightclimbing #wasatch #wasatchmountains #wasatchfront #grivel #adventure #canon #15mm #socold #waterclimbing #maninblack #utah #5am

New years are great checkpoints to reflect on lessons learned, awareness gained, shifts in perspective and experiences had. Climbing provides a great framework for tracking such shifts. #tbt to trying out my first ring locks with crack coach Jenny. Learning how to navigate different terrain assists in tapping into the process of unlocking the treasure trove of self-belief. @jabegg on the 📹 capture of this hilariously momentous occasion. #moonlightbuttress #zombiefingers #Funstoppable #tipsfromShawberg #tradisrad #buttopropefirst #witnessmyfitness #macromicro

Those who know me well have probably heard me ramble on about my affinity with the number 24. For that reason, I've been searching far and wide for a special moment to share. 
Here it is, post #24 
I snapped this on my Galaxy #S8 when we were on our way up Mt Brewster In South Island NZ. It was one of those moments of sureal beauty where the scree was like a perfect canvas for the weather that was soon to close in. I'll save the #sufferfest details for another time however for me, it's moments like these that keep the fire burning long and the trips come to an end. .

Getting a little lost on the approach #alpinestart
Got an early alpine start to 2018 with a ski tour on Mt. St. Helens! No better way to start a new year. I'm so thankful for the sunshine we had. The skiing was great @mountaineer_buckeye and I got in ~4K feet, what a blast! Here's to a year of more outdoor adventures!

@marlaofstad greets dawn of a new year on the Continental Divide at 13k’ with Torreys Peak 14,267’) most prominent in the background. Yeah, we could use some snow at the top of the South Platte River watershed. #frontrange #newyear #optoutside #rockymountains #alpinestart #publicland #ourpubliclands #plattebasintimelapse
Happy New Year from Colorful Colorado, what a better way to start the new year than Alpine Tourning the beautiful Backcountry of Vail. 🎿 around for 10 or more  miles maybe, lost count. Here is to starting the year off right, the year of the Alpine Start, also got to meet some nice rangers from the white river forest. If anybody did anything physical to celebrate New year's day, comment Below I would love to hear about it. ✌#alpinetouring #alpinestart #vailcolorado #celebratelife

Cheers to you, 2017. A year of many ups, and many downs. Thankful for the experiences, and grateful for the lessons; I’m learning to appreciate the balance of it all 🙏 📸 @kevstewa

Today I nearly got lifted off my feet by gusting winds while crossing a frozen lake. I like to think the wind was caused by yodeling wizards, singing their hymns atop distant mountains. Or something like that.

Glacier gremlins are real, just when you think you are safe on the Glacier it opens up and swallows you. Here @auraluciadesigns is inspecting a little nip at her ankle (hole) when the beast is in plain sight just behind.  Pre sunrise #eliotglacier exploration. Wondering what the Glacier looks like today after 3" of rain fell again today, damn!
