Standing alone at over 14,000 feet. It’s would be an amazing feeling to have the experience to hike Rainer, one of the greatest views in all of Washington. Until that day comes I’ll take this view over anything
Being on an island doesn’t mean all you gotta do is be lazy ... this morning I walked all around the island and I just walked to the harbor here on Gili Air. Estimated hiking distance for today: 8 km
This is me and my new hiking buddy, Jim, from this past Sunday. As of right now, today, this area is battling a wildfire. Our thoughts go out to all of our friends in Crowsnest Pass, and we pray that everyone stays safe. ❤️🙏
I can’t stop thinking about mountains. Do you believe inanimate objects have souls? Feelings, even? Do you believe in animism?
There’s the old adage and joke about “the mountains calling” you, but for a while now, I’ve had this itch I need to scratch.
I have weekends loaded up for weeks, but something is going to have to give. I need to go back to places like San Jacinto like in this picture.
Ever get that urge that doesn’t let go?
It feels a lot like fall over at Lake Moomaw! The leaves have turned a vibrant yellow and orange, as you can see in this gorgeous overlook. We've always wanted to go to Lake Moomaw and we finally made it out there this season. We couldn't have asked for a better view!
Exactly one month ago -- scrambling toward glaciers in the Eastern Sierra. We squeezed the very last juices out of summer on that trip. Now that autumn is in full force, so is hibernation 🙃 #letsgetcozy
This was our second day into the trip to the #zion . The #narrows hike was one of my favorite hikes in the park. The water was definitely cold for someone from Florida! 5 miles into it, I definitely lost feeling in my feet lol.
Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes.
I heard someone say this on my flight the other day and it really rang true for me...make sure you make time to unplug 😉✌️

👉🏼 TOPIC TODAY: Learn by Imitation!! Imitate more experienced hikers and eventually you’ll be as experienced as they are!
Let’s be honest. No one is just so smart that they always knew the right gear to use, the right clothes to wear, the right rules to follow, etc. We learned how to dress like hikers, hang a bear bag, and many other skills by watching more experienced hikers and backpackers and then imitating them! I think people are generally happy to teach you new things whether they know it or not!
It's Trail Tuesday and today it's all about Bryce Canyon National Park! I love love love Bryce! Those hoodoos get me every time😊
The Navaho Loop trail is the most popular trail in Bryce, and for good reason. This trail is so much fun! At only 1.4 miles it is super short but my oh my it is action packed. I was so surprised when I realized how short it was because it seemed so much longer.....in a good way😊 A series of long and short switchbacks take you down to the canyon floor and you immediately come to an area called Wall Street, the only slot canyon in Bryce. The kids loved getting up close to the hoodoos and exploring. The only difficult part of the hike is the switchbacks at the end that lead you back up to your starting point. We may have had a few meltdown here.😆
Waking up at 4:30 am, layering up in clothes, putting our head lamps on and heading to the trailhead to catch sunrise. About 3.5 miles of ice and snow covered trails filled with free bear pawl prints in the Black morning. But the fear of night and falling on my ass in the ice was well worth my time and energy. Keep the mind busy #summitlake
'The silence of nature is very real. It surrounds you...you can feel it'
I spent an hour on this lake last night paddling around an island and saw one person in the far distance. It was peaceful and beautiful and all things glorious. The sun is setting earlier and our days are getting shorter, but I am thankful I got my board out once last time before storing it away until spring. ✌🏻
