She has  gardens  in place of a crown.  Not only those  curls that sprout,  growing wildly  with vigor,  but also  a mind  that could lead a revolution,  sprouting life and fruition through the thickness of her skull. "A Headdress of Wildflowers" -M.J. Miller 
Going to keep my eyes on this prize for the next 3 weeks.  Especially with all that's happened I have to stay focused.  Getting a finish at Grindstone 100 gets me into the 2018 Hardrock 100 lottery....which is as significant to me as earning a buckle.  It is what keeps me training hard and will keep me pushing come race day.  I am under no illusions it will be easy to either earn it or gain entry to my dream race, but then again I would not like, nor want it, as much if it were. 🏃‍♀️⛰💪❤️ #Grindstone100 #eyesontheprize #qualifier #Hardrock100 #lottery #dreambig #trainhard #run #tbt #icelaketrail #sanjuan #mountains #ultragal #ultrarunner #mountainlover #trailrunner #ultrarace #ultra #trailrace #purultrarunning #iloveultrarunning #skratchlabs #trailtoes #tomboyskincare #m.j.miller #poetry #myfav #instapoet

Although inspired oxygen is limited at 13,000ft, the scenic view. It simply just takes your breath away :) #islandlake #icelaketrail #coloradobackpacking #Adventureshub
Your soul is attracted to people the same way flowers are attracted to the sun. Surround yourself only with those who want to see you grow. 🌿🏔

Ice & Island Lake hike ✔️
This hike has been on my Colorado bucket list for a while and it was completely worth it! After the long drive and steep climb we were rewarded with these spectacular views. Thanks for always adventuring with me @dugglescast !

⏩ I'm a sucker for alpine lakes. These were my two favorite spots this summer in the San Juans. Any of my Colorado people have more suggestions for lake hikes?! 🏔💙

Every time we go to Colorado we come away with a new favorite view. We worked really hard for this one and it was totally worth it. #icelaketrail #backpacking #advannturing
I hope everyone had a wonderful and adventurous long weekend. I watched many Game of Thrones reruns on my couch because sometimes it's what you need. 🤷🏻‍♀️Also....#WinterIsComing ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

I swear to God, I wanted to quit so many times while hiking up to Ice Lakes. I kept thinking "wtf did I get myself into?" But I did it! I made it! I'm so proud of myself! It's an absolutely breathtaking view that pics can do it no justice. Worth the strenuous hike! 👍🏽 #icelakes #icelaketrail #icelakesbasin #icelakesilverton #silverton #colorado #lake #bluelake #bluewater #beautiful #natureisbeautiful #hike #girlswhohike #hikingbabes #mountains #sanjuanmountains #mountainbabe #worthit

Today I hiked the highest, hardest, most strenuous trail I've ever attempted and I feel so accomplished. Ice lake has Elevation: 12,270-ft. Elevation Gain: 2,430-ft. And yes the water is really that color!! #icelakebasin #icelaketrail #colorado #silvertoncolorado #lake #mountains #blue #womenwhohike #hike #gooutside #nature #visitsilverton #coloradogram #amongthewild
Ice Lake is seriously that color. Shot on the Canon Rebel t6i. #IceLake #icelaketrail #landscapes #nofilter #pitbullsofinstagram #sanjuannationalforest @ospreypacks
Backpacking at Ice Lake seems and feels surreal. Definitely one of our favorite backpacking destinations. Worth every steep climb. #icelaketrail #backpackingcolorado #adventureshub

Trail to Ice Lake - Wallowas - Oregon
Waterfall on the trail to Ice lake. Take me back to the Wallowas. I could stay there forever.

Two views of our home for the night in the Lower Ice Lakes Basin. In the shot from above, our tent is the white dot in the middle. 
Ice Lakes never loses its luster for me and backpacking this time was the way to go. It allows one to escape the masses and a longer time to soak in the surrounding beauty. With temperatures in the low 30s at night in August, make sure to bring some layers. And of course, having a fire is the best way to enjoy the evening. Next time we'll have to stay a second night.

A Sunday ago I had the privilege of taking a majestic trip of sorts with my brothers. And shout out to the Colorado mountain ranges. Mind bending beauty.

Ice lake Trail (Silverton,Colorado )
The trail wastes no time gaining elevation, climbing 1,600-ft. in 2-miles through forests and wildflower-filled meadows to the beautiful Lower Ice Lakes basin. Upon reaching the lower basin great views open to Fuller, Vermillion Peak, Golden Horn and Pilot Knob rising above the ridge at the head of the basin.As you wander up the lower basin waterfalls emanating from unseen alpine lakes and snowfields tumble down clefts in the rocky hillside watering a breathtaking array of wildflowers. A sea of columbine, larkspur, aspen daisies, chiming bells and cow parsnips blankets both sides of the trail.But the best is yet to come. A steep climb to the upper basin leads to the turquoise blue waters of Ice Lake nestled in a magnificent cirque of sculpted ridges and peaks soaring well above 13,000-ft. The alpine tundra wonderland around the lake invites exploration, with routes heading toward Island Lake, Fuller Lake and beyond.

Freezing water but we just hiked 12,400 ft up, through 3-4mountains and most of the hike where done during the storm, so there is no way we were gonna pass on taking a dip on, "Ice Lake", just because the water was at freezing temp. 😂 #silvertoncolorado #stupidbutfun #icelaketrail #outdoorsmen #hikealldayeveryday #cantgetenough #highaltitudehappiness
I get my cast off tomorrow, and today is post op week two! 
I have more grip strength and I can do more than I could a week ago. I also itch so terribly all over my arm, my wrist burns at night and if I go too long in the sun or without icing - my fingers swell and my arm aches bad. I cannot wait to start rehabilitating my wrist back to normal (slowly of course). 😎

Halfway up. #silvertoncolorado #ilovecolorado #hikealldayeveryday just kidding maybe hike once or twice a month hahaha #icelaketrail #iceisland
Island lake can be reached just another 10 or 15 minutes up from Ice Lake... another beautiful alpine lake with incredibly blue waters due to the glacial four.

Shocked that there were no trees to get wood for fire. Hahaha it was storming going up. The sun's heat after it passed was like happiness #almostdiedbutstillalive #freezingwetandcold #stormyhikesarethebesttho  #icelaketrail #silvertoncolorado #hikealldayeveryday #outdoorsmanshit
Don't compare your life to others. There is no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it's their time. 🌞🌚

What up Y'all🐻 Headed to Mount Evans, Colorado🗯
Did you know: The Mount Evans Scenic Byway (the drive to the top of the mountain) is the highest paved road in America!  Can't wait to summit the car🚗 #Colorado #sonya6000 #icelaketrail #marmot#vangardeclipsetrip #coloradolive#viewfromcolorado
12,400.00 ft above sea level. Look like a cyclops though. #iceislandtrail #icelaketrail #silvertoncolorado❤️ #hikealldayeveryday #outdoorliving
Ice Lake.... just wow!!! Yes, it's really that blue and I'm convinced this is where they get that cool blue Gatorade.

Comments on today's busy hike with Emma the pack mule: "I'm just going to squeeze past your burro real quick." "Thanks for moving your truck out of the way." "Atta girl, make her work for it."

While the actual season of summer still has some time on its clock, this week marks the end of "summer" as we know it. I start my new job, @alysaf begins her Graduate program, and my teaching opportunity is right around the corner.  It's been a blast the past few months, (re)exploring our little mountain town and going on bigger adventures but I have a feeling life is about to get just a little crazier. So let's throw it back to a day where we didn't have a care in the world. Except for maybe that pesky bear by the campsite...🏕🐻

One final photo from Ice Lakes Basin, I promise!  This was on the way down, shortly before some pretty big rains hit.

Today I accomplished somethings on my own. Working with one arm is very hard and all I want to do is sleep, but I also want to read and eat - the struggle is real🤷🏻‍♀️ overall, the recovery is harder than I was expecting but I'm managing. I want to say thank you so very much to all the people who have helped out by bringing over food and just checking on me, Matthew and I appreciate your help so much!! And of course thank you to my best friend for always being there for me❤️
