A bit of sun bursting over Aasgard Pass in the Enchantments pretty close to the top. I don't think I was prepared for how amazing I felt that day climbing boulders, hopping from rock to rock, navigating using the large cairns, up and up and up... turning now and then to see a curious goat panting in the heat on a rock close by - eyeing me. This was part of a series of events in a single week that made me feel brave and strong and deeply moved by being alive.
Woke up at 5:30 yesterday and headed down to Mt. Ranier to do some volunteer trail maintenance and enjoy the awesome views! Was able to get some good shots despite the smoke. #mtranier#wta#washingtontrailsassociation
I'm a believer in participating and giving back to the community and have a goal to volunteer several times a year to something. Yesterday was my second time working with the Washington Trails Association to help build better trails. As someone who loves the outdoors, it's wonderful to feel like I'm helping to create a better experience for everyone, especially since yesterday's trail is an accessible trail that even those in wheelchairs can use. I'm sore and tired today, but feel good about why. 🙂 #volunteerwork#getouside#givingback#washingtontrailsassociation
