View from a low level summit on the northwest side of Pikes Peak, Raspberry Mountain 10,563’. Can’t wait for Scout to be able to join me in all these fun places. #runtheearthwatchthesky #rei1440project #optoutside #lifewithaltitude #wildernessculture #findasummit #neverstopexploring
2017 brought a lot of change in my life—new elevation record, marrying the best guy I know, getting a house, getting a promotion, getting a new puppy, and so many other things. As an ISTJ even good change is stressful. I’m glad I got to spend a lot of days with my favorite people this year doing fun things, doing hard things, doing heart things, and doing edifying things. #bestnine2017 #runtheearthwatchthesky #lifewithaltitude

View as I kneel on the summit of McCurdy Mountain 12,168’—kneeling because the wind was 50mph and the last thing I do will not be being blown off a summit. #runtheearthwatchthesky #coloradohikes #mccurdymountain #lostcreekwilderness #rei1440project #optoutside #neverstopexploring #getoutside #forceofnature #lifewithaltitude #colorsofthewind #mydisneypocahontasmoment

First trek to Bison Peak 12,411’ in the Lost Creek Wilderness. 12 miles RT, 3,693’ gain. I think this will become a favorite! #coloradohikes #lostcreekwilderness #abovethetrees #rei1440project #optoutside #runtheearthwatchthesky #neverstopexploring #theoutbound #wildernessculture #lifewithaltitude #forceofnature
Looking towards Bison Peak 12,411’—what an awesome alpine plateau littered with the coolest granite formations. #lostcreekwilderness #colorado #hikingproject #rei1440project #optoutside #runtheearthwatchthesky #neverstopexploring #lifewithaltitude #wildernessculture #theoutbound #abovethetrees #myfavoriteplacetobe
When the view from your deck is otherworldly you take a photo to make sure you’re still living in reality. #rei1440project #runtheearthwatchthesky #lifewithaltitude #sunsets #colorado #pikespeak #fireinthesky
Not a bad view to wake up to every morning. #lifewithaltitude
When I am in the wilderness you might find me in beautiful places like this...where icy waterfalls beckon to be climbed and the wind pushes you around. #rei1440project #runtheearthwatchthesky #lifewithaltitude #colorado #rockymountainnationalpark #findyourepic #lifewithaltitude #neverstopexploring

The Needle Mountains in the Weminuche Wilderness in the San Juan Range of Colorado do not disappoint.

Today's objective: Kelso Ridge. This is a ridge I've done before and  it leads to Torreys Peak 14,267'--here you see the crux of the route with climbers on the "knife edge" leading to the white rock. It's always good to be above treeline. #rei1440project #optoutside #lifewithaltitude #runtheearthwatchthesky #kelsoridge #colorado14ers #colorado #findyourepic #neverstopexploring #climbhigh #mountainclimbing #getoutside #wildernessculture
Mountain Goats. They live the life I could only dream of, but with slightly less verbal skills than I want and leaves something to be desired in the opposable thumb skills that I need. #rei1440project #mountaingoat #runtheearthwatchthesky #mountainclimbing #lifewithaltitude #neverstopexploring #optoutside #colorado #climbhigh #findyourepic #wildernessculture
Moving closer to the things you love can move you further from the ones you love. Compromises.

Gore Lake, Vail, Colorado. 12 miles and getting caught in a downpour to soak in this awesome place was well worth it. #runtheearthwatchthesky #optoutside #neverstopexploring #godmakescoolthings #alpinelakes #lifewithaltitude #rei1440project #wildernessculture #findyourepic #theoutbound #colorado #gorelake #vailcolorado

Went to Mount Falcon today with the fambam and got in a nice hike up and back down. It was beautiful and we made it out of the mountains before the hail storm showed up.

“You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again, so why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art in conducting oneself in the lower region by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.”
Excerpt From: Dickinson, Brian, "Blind Descent"

Our next objective is the 3rd highest summit in North America, Pico de Orizaba standing tall at 18,491'. 2/23/17 We head to high camp and this is our view along the way! #rmiexpeditions #runtheearthwatchthesky #lifewithaltitude #optoutside #rei1440project #neverstopexploring #climbon #climbhigher #mountaineering #mexicovolcanoes #picodeorizaba #findyourepic #getoutside #wildernessculture #bigmountainsbigdreams
2/22/17 The three women of the team reach the summit first--not bc of chivalry, but bc of strength! We enjoyed the summit as we waited for the guys to catch up ;) I was given the privilege of summiting first by RMI guide Christina Dale @rmiexpeditions gaining a new altitude record on top of Ixtaccihuatl 17,340' #mountaingirls #strongwomen #rmiexpeditions #wildernessculture #mountainpassion #lifewithaltitude #climbhigher #optoutside #rei1440project #runtheearthwatchthesky #findyourepic #neverstopexploring #getoutside #mexicovolcanoes  #dreambig #dreamingofnewsummits #climbmemories

2/22/17 We make our summit bid from high camp and approach 16,500' at sunrise--the weather is perfect and we can see Pico de Orizaba 18,490' (3rd highest summit in NA) in the distance. As the sun gets higher we make our way across the penitentes to the base of the final summit push. #rmiexpeditions #wildernessculture #climbhigher #mountainpassion #lifewithaltitude #runtheearthwatchthesky #optoutside #rei1440project #findyourepic #ixtaccihuatl #mexicovolcanoes #theoutbound #neverstopexploring #getoutside #thegreatoutdoors

View of Popocatépetl 17,802' from base camp on Ixtaccihuatl (~13,500'). It's an active volcano so they no longer allow people to climb it and it was a world class view of it spewing smoke the whole time. 🌋 #wildernessculture #mountainpassion #lifewithaltitude #climbhigher #rmi #mexicovolcanoes #volcano #Popocatépetl #rei1440project #optoutside #theoutbound #findyourepic #runtheearthwatchthesky
My trip to Mexico is taking over my Instagram feed for the next few days.
First objective seen here: Ixtaccihuatl 17,340' which will be a new altitude record for me. 2/21/2017

Just set up a trip to climb Pico de Orizaba (18,701') and Ixtaccihuatl (17,304') in Mexico for February 2017. #stoked #allaboardtheadventuretrain #lifewithaltitude #findyoursummit #getoutside #runtheearthwatchthesky #neverstopexploring
Started off in the fog and ended up at 10,000' and above the clouds. It was a beautiful day up there and it's the first time I ever experienced it getting colder, windier, and rainier as I went down in elevation. It was 75 degrees up there in the sun! #neverstopexploring #abovetheclouds #rei1440project #lifewithaltitude #findyoursummit #allaboardtheadventuretrain #getoutside
