The Oregon wildfires 🔥 continue to burn so there is a smoky haze in the air while I was at Crater Lake. It was still amazing and I learned that it is the 7th deepest lake in the world (deepest in the US) at almost 2,000ft and it holds 4.9 trillion gallons of water 💦 WOW!
This smoldering log kept us on our toes this trip.. we didn't know if we'd wake up to a forest fire. Rangers had been watching it for over a week. It flared up at times but thankfully it stayed mellow. Made us extra thankful for this gorgeous place.. a reminder nothing is forever.
Day one of our ladyventure has already been incredible. 10 hours in the car brought us to this magical place where sun rays pierced through the clouds onto the turquoise water of Lake Moraine. We ate dinner at sunset in our camp chairs on Morant's curve. Living the American dream in Canada 😝Can't wait for the epic adventure we have bright and early tomorrow! Canada you always amaze me! ✌️🇨🇦
While you were at work today, I was struggling to keep up with these two today. Unlike Seymour, Grouse and The Lions there were no black flies on Lynn Peak!! Only this small view at the top, and lots of loose rock on a never ending trail, but no crowds and a great workout. The road to Lynn Headwaters is now closed to pedestrians, because they are finally fixing the road!! @vancouvertrails

I followed them with my eyes going through life, which would be nothing to them but fields, mountains, or forests. I saw them veiled in a kind of light, sheltered from darkness, protected for a time against the fearful spell of memory and thought. -------------------------------------------

The last two week-ends have been pretty inspiring, watching friends take on (and crush!) some pretty gnarly races. I don't know that I have (or will ever have) the grit and passion it takes to run those, but one thing is for sure, I do love being part of those events, being able to bring cheer and support to my friends, feeling that there is a place for me there, no matter how important or small it may be...Being part of a community...
