Often referred to as the 'Matterhorn of the Rockies,' Mount Assiniboine is a breathtaking peak and must see along the Icefields Parkway.

🇺🇸 On our way to one of the coolest places of this amazing country, Arches National Park, we made a quick stop to enjoy of this beautiful balanced rock! • 🇻🇪 Camino a uno de los lugares más bellos de este país, el Parque Nacional Arches, hicimos unas pequeña parada para admirar esta roca balanceada llamada el Sombrero Mexicano ✨
Nothing in the world is permanent. We're foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we're more foolish when we don't enjoy it while we have it...⠀
@itsbigben taking those words to heart, taking a moment to soak it all in.⠀
PS. Winter is coming. We're stoked. The end.
Pps. Damn Early Days is also coming and we’re really stoked. Check the link on the bio.
22. The bus crushed it* on 70 and delivered us to @2sketch in Logan, UT! We are headed to Little Cottonwood to climb today to get our trad on.
I've been joking for years that I couldn't move yet because I hadn't found the right mountains. Now that we're here, the Wasatch Range look mighty tempting...PS: by "crushed it," I definitely mean that we struggled up to 12,000...and really felt that last hill needed to get to Court's house in Logan. 😂

We reached the end of the trail according to the trail description, but then peeked over the saddle we'd just climbed to and were amazed to see an entire valley open up in front of us, with views ahead all the way to Mount Hood in Oregon, and Rainier looming large behind us. We explored the network of boot paths there a little longer before heading back, already planning a return trip to see more of this place. @mountrainiernps is truly a wonderland, and I will never forget that breathtaking surprise - sometimes the "end" really is a new beginning.
“There are several ways to react to being lost. One is to panic: this was usually Valentina's first impulse. Another is to abandon yourself to lostness, to allow the fact that you've misplaced yourself to change the way you experience the world.” ― Audrey Niffenegger 📸 : @schneideroutdoorvisions

Fun fact: Aspens are clonal trees, so one tree will have tons of tree trunks that are all part off the same organism. The only way to tell which trees are part of which is to wait for fall, then the colors reveal where each tree starts and ends.

With summer coming to an end I just wanted to share one more picture from our last trip to Colorado. After hiking to Conundrum Hotsprings, we met up with @oklahomahiker soon after to hike Humboldt mountain. It was my first time to hike anything so tall, most of my experience prior was all in multi-day hikes on the trail, more 'horizontal' than 'vertical'. Blake on the other hand, had hiked over 20 14ers by the time and was much more experienced with that. I'd been following Blake for awhile on social media but our paths had never crossed up until that point. I love the way social media can be such a powerful tool to connect you with other people with similar passions and interests and this was a perfect example of that. The night before we climbed, as we setup camp near the base of Humboldt, I remember going to sleep terrified of what the next day would be like. In no way is the mountain exceptionally difficult or dangerous compared to other 14ers, it's really quite mild - perhaps even a 'warmup' for the veteran climber, but having never experienced anything like it, I was so nervous to see how I would do. It certainly proved to be one of the most taxing and difficult hikes I have done. It seemed to go on forever. The whole way up the wind whipped powerfully around us, blowing us all across the trail and forcing us to take cover behind rocks every so often. But we trudged on, the tiny summit becoming gradually larger and my anxiety gradually receding until finally with a triumphant shout we reached the top. The joy that flooded over me at that point was just unexplainable. Again, to others this mountain may be the easiest of hikes compared to some of the surrounding peaks, but for me it represented all my fears and anxiety of failure & attempting something I had never done. Some of the greatest joys in life are found when we face our biggest fears head-on and persevere through till we conquer them.
Wishing these two a happy first anniversary! About a year ago we were at Camp Kieve in Maine where the air is so crisp and unspoiled. A Scottish wedding in the woods, lots of good drinks, laughter, a lakeside campfire, sweaty dancing and so many puppies. I'm forever thankful to do what I love with the very best people.
Millions of years ago this once was a sea cave, created by lava explosively injected into wet sediments and home to prehistoric hippopotamus and ancient sea lions. Due to a life time of the tide eating away at the inside of the cave, the top of it finally fell in on it self, forming what we now know as the Devil's Punchbowl
