📍Hidden Lake Lookout - North Cascades National Park


Memories from a week ago. From wooded forest, to alpine meadows, to crystalline lakes, to boulder scrambles, to a lovely cottage perched on a peak and back
Learning to be alone without being lonely is not always easy. There will always be days when you need someone, and that’s perfectly okay. But if you find one day that you are struggling and need relief, find something that breathes life back into your soul. For me, it’s always been fitness and nature, but it could be something as simple as reading a book in the grass. It will get easier, I promise. But you have to learn to love yourself, as you are, and be confident in that - and you’ll start to see that your life is beautiful if you chose to see it that way and you didn’t need anyone else to show you that. #loveyourself #loveyourlife #knowyourworth #neveralone #lifeisbeautiful
After a long period of radio silence I’m back and motivated as ever. Life has been a bit, well, chaotic since I left for Laos back in May but I’m finally catching up to life the only way I know how...going back to the basics. Back to times of simple meals with 3 or 4 ingredients, being active, sleeping enough, and taking time to disconnect. My version of healthy includes way more than just my diet. •• A camping trip to the cascades was all I needed to restart. But of course, what’s a good hike without a side of energy balls?
I’m not very athletic. I’m not very strong. And I struggle to push myself. . This trail has been something I’ve wanted to see for over two years. I hadn’t felt like this type of hike was doable before. It was intimidating. I was still intimidated waking up that morning to go. . But guess what... it wasn’t that bad. Apparently I’ve actually been doing work lately. . I tend not to notice the progress I’ve been making- I think in part because I keep trying to do more difficult things, I don’t often go back and do hikes that I used to struggle on to see my progress. I’ve come farther than I thought and that’s something I need to be better at recognizing. . . . #pnwonderland #herpnwlife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #idhikethatcrew #pnwoutdoorwomen #ladiesgetoutside #alpinebabes #badasshikingwomen #explorewashington #upperleftusa #washingtontrails #washingtontrailsassociation #washingtonhikersandclimbers #choosemountains #choosemountainswomen #mtnchicks #mountaincollective #hikingwithdogs #northcascades #hiddenlakelookout
