I’m not big on daily hashtags, but #mountainmemorymonday got me thinking about all of my prized memories that I’ve made while getting dirty and enjoying nature. This one comes from my PCT thru hike in 2015. Smoke rising from Mt. Adams wasn’t the most comforting thing to see from a volcano. A wildfire on the Yakima Reservation quickly turned the sky a hazy orange and rained ash on us all morning. It didn’t help that we didn’t see anyone until late in the afternoon either. It makes you think you missed a memo or something.
How do you #OptOutside ? Check out the nature preserves in your area for the opportunity to see some local wildlife, like this beautiful monarch butterfly. 📸: @maren.robinson

Wondering what it's like to get invited on a crazy, cross country bike tour out of the blue?
@c.r.a.b.b.y opens up a bit on @she_explores about her personal experience on our Leave It Better tour this summer. Link in bio to check it out!
She's in Utah now and Seth is in Tennesee. Both are getting snowed in. The bikes are tucked away for the winter. Even though the days are getting colder and shorter, there's a lot to get out of them.
See you out there.
Attention fourth graders and parents‼️ The @u.s.forestservice has a special program that allows fourth graders with the Every Kid in a Park pass to obtain a free 🌲for the holidays. 🎁 Get outside and enjoy the great outdoors with the whole family 🏞 (Details available at KeepAmericaFishing.org) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀@keepamericafishing @usinterior #thegreatoutdoors#christmastree#nationalforest#getoutdoors#publiclands
I can’t believe it’s not even Thanksgiving week and we are getting days like this. Excited to get some inbound laps soon! This whole quality over quantity thing is fine, but why not have both. Turning #optoutside into a week long event!
Man watching the #landofthefree series is making me reminisce of this past season! @jguerrin has been one of my #huntingpartners for awhile now! This elk came on #publiclands I️ am so glad Jay was able to be there. @bornandraisedoutdoors is right when they say it’s about brotherhood and the experience with the guys you care about. It’s nice to see that in a hunting series rather than the horns and kill shot! Again thank you @bornandraisedoutdoors for bringing this to the forefront of the series!!!
Searching for moving rocks. I think people assume moving rocks are only found in Racetrack Playa in Death Valley but they can be found on any relatively flat surface if the conditions are met. Wind, water, and freezing temps. Nevada has plenty of dry lake beds. I found 2 moving rocks at this particular lake bed, but were not very photogenic because of all the tire tracks. I wish there was better protection.
