I enjoy my walks in nature ❤💩 first time up Brown Mt. it's very rocky and there is a lot of mountain bikers, but I loved it can't wait to go up again. #yellowlab #labsofinstagram #yellowlabrador #yellowlabsofinstagram #dogsworld #humpday #dogsrule #12yearsold #naturewalk #angelesnationalforest #brownmt

Third time back at ole Kelso and it never ceases to amaze me. 🌵
Angeles National Forest — over 650,000 acres to explore 🙌🏻 #views #hiking #angelesnationalforest

Discovery of the Big Horn Mine - Abandoned hike in LA (new blog) This building was once a working quarters for the miners who worked this gold mine in the early 1900's but today it stands as a relic to a lost age in Los Angeles history. The hike, located in Wrightwood was once taken many times by the workers of the mine. Hike Big Horn Rd. 2 miles to reach the mine, today it is seldom explored by hikers who drive the great distance from the city to hike here. I took this photo in 2017 from my only visit there and had been a place I have not forgotten since. Blog with all details of the hike in the bio link.
Canyon carving always a must🚘⛰
There were a lot of trees that had been cut down. It looked like termite infestation. Very sad. #angelesnationalforest #trees #natureisbreathtaking #sawmillcampground

my brother is here from Utah for the week to hang out and i am so excited. it’s always fun having family around to add to the excitement he just recently adopted a dog and this is the first time we are getting to meet him. this morning we got up and went up to the Angeles National Forest to hike at a new trail. it was my first time being able to hike with a dog and i was in Heaven but more than that the views up there were amazing. it is always so relaxing getting out there in nature and getting to clear your head while taking in all the beautiful views. this hike was supposed to have a waterfall at the end and i am sure we took a wrong turn somewhere because the waterfall we found was way too tiny for it to be what we were looking for however taking that wrong turn led to some of the most beautiful views i have seen since starting to hike in Los Angeles🌳🌲 • • • #adventurecalling #walking #hiking #getoutside #photooftheday #picoftheday #nature #sun #sky #woods #forest #mountains #trails #hikingtrails #adventure #spring #springhiking #naturelover #outdoor #doglover #goexplore #keepitwild #simplyadventure #angelesnationalforest #switzerfalls #laliving
This weekend we celebrated Mother Nature and #earthday with our first backpacking trip and summit of the year! 🏕⛰ . . We also joined @letskeepitwild in showing earth a little extra love ❤️🌎 Luckily, the summit here was pretty trash free, but we did find lots of micro trash along the trail - plastic bottle caps, corners of wrappers and bags, etc. Picking these up along the way is such an easy way to #leaveitbetter . . #earthdaykeeper #wildkeepers
Hot off the press!!! 8:12 this morning, two and a half hours before I showed up, this big fluffy bear passed by my "Sunset Ridge" camera. I did notice fresh bear tracks on the trail, but I didn't know they were that fresh! #bear #blackbear #wildlife #bears #ursine #teddybear #wildlife #wildlifephotography #photography #sangabrielmountains #angelesnationalforest #outdoors #nature #hiking #california #instagood #animalsofinstagram
SWIPE ⏩⏩ Helping Rylan get ready for Angeles Crest 100 miler! On Sunday, we "ran" the last 25 miles of the course. No... Your eyes are not deceiving you! That elevation change is crucial! Over 9,200ft of climbimg in just 25 miles! It was tough! But we've got 3.5 months of training left. If he's committed, he'll be fine... I'm sure of it! . 💥Side note: this will be Rylan's first 100... And he's registered as a solo runner! 😱 So let's share some words of encouragement and help unleash his badassery! . . . . 🌲🏃🗻 #AC100 #angelescrest100 #AngelesNationalForest #ANF #LosAngeles #ultrarunners #trainingplans #ACE #personaltrainer #RRCA #runningcoach #getthererunning
My favorite place to be is out in nature away from Los Angeles filled with 10 million people. This was in Angeles National Forest. Where do you like to camp?? Photocredits to @loudavin #nature #chilao #hammock #optoutside #angelesnationalforest
I feel so fortunate to live so close to the Angeles National Forest. I am in my element when I am in nature. I spend my work week dreaming of when I can return to nature. Yesterday I hiked Switzer Falls (plus a little extra) with @savvysabbydp and @tanyaontherun. The trail was much less crowded than when I went on Saturday. When we got to the trailhead, there was only one other car in the parking lot. It was pure trail-bliss. ° ° ° ° ° ° #instarunners #charitymiles #runnerslife #runhappy   #inspiringwomenrunners #runlikeagirl #womensrunningcommunity #inknburn #sparkleburn #girlswhorun #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #runeverywhere #instahike #instahikers #girlswhohike #thegreatoutdoors #hikersofinstagram #hikeeverywhere #outdoordivas #girlswhohikela #mountaingirls #girlswhoexplore #peoplewhohike #hiker #hikergirl #hikerbabesorg9 #journeyto100 #switzerfalls #angelesnationalforest

Little Kuma gets to explore the outdoors with his mama, Hannah. To see unrestrained joy and curiosity on his little face was so special. It reminded me to enjoy the smallest of details. . The outdoors is for everyone. It is for the young and the old. It is for every race. It is for every social and economic demographic. It is for pro athletes and first timers. . There are lots of barriers, economic, institutional, and geographical, that keep people from seeing the outdoors as home. Colonialism privatized lots of land and turned it into “someone else’s home” while taking home away from indigenous people. All of this adds to the current disconnection from nature. And while I can’t undo all of that, I can share my gear to help someone else get outside and I can walk slowly with small humans as they begin to explore the outdoors. I can let you know that you don’t need fancy gear to enjoy a day hike, you don’t have go to crazy far places to say you love the outdoors, you don’t have to be a white cis-gender person to go backpacking, you don’t have to grow up experiencing the outdoors to fall in love with it as an adult. . If you want to experience more of the outdoors, but you don’t know where to start, ask a friend who might know a little bit (I LOVE talking to friends about the outdoors, encouraging them to get out, giving them tips, or sometimes introducing them to backpacking for the first time. So many other “outdoorsy” folks feel the same way! We want to help!) If you feel like you don’t see anyone like yourself in the outdoors, know that there are so many support groups and resources out there. (some good places to start are: @unlikelyhikers @melaninbasecamp @getout.stayout @fatgirlshiking @indigenouswomenhike @latinooutdoors + there are SO many more out there if you browse around!!!) . This is just scratching the surface, and everything is oversimplified here, but I just wanted to put an encouraging note out there in the case that you want to get outside more but feel like you don’t belong. You do! . If you do go outside, just remember #LeaveNoTrace principles and remember that whatever land you are walking on has been someone’s home for centuries/millennias.
Backpacking = L O V E . . . . . . #earthday #angelesnationalforest
When I lived there I'd get these comments, "oh, Pasadena seems like such a nice place to live!" And I'd let it go, because arguing with sunny people is rarely worth the effort. But that was not my experience.
