My soul had been craving the North Cascades. Still trying to kick this cold, so opted for a chill little Sunday hike up Mt. Pilchuck. At just 5.5 miles round trip but packed with stellar views, it seemed right for the day. We soon discovered probably a quarter of the trail was completely covered in thick skin of ice, turning around anyone who didn't have microspikes. Made for an unexpectedly fun little challenge! Though I've used the spikes or crampons many times before and often oggled the sudden ability to feel like Spider Man, I've never quite had anything this close to ice climbing before. Yay! Perpetually in love with seeing the growing shadow of the mountain that I'm standing on, as it spreads gradient hues of blues across the undulating hills below. A Raven was a frequent companion on this trip, soaring within what seemed like arms reach a few times, piercing the silence with it's hypnotic flap. #pnwlove #sunshinesickday #optoutside #choosemountains #northcascades #mtpilchuck #womenwhohike #pnwwonderland #viewsfordays #lookouttower #firelookout

High above the Umatilla Forest, the smoke from the California wild fires floats above the trees. #jeep #toyota #firelookout #elevated
Start them young! Ned’s first lookout stay 🌲
One last dose of fresh air with a hike up the Tahoe Rim Trail to Martis Peak. Maybe this will all be under snow later this week! 🤞 . . . . . . . . #martispeak #martisfirelookout #hiking #tahoe #tahoerimtrail #firelookout #laketahoe #california

We LOVE staying in fire lookouts... it's kinda our thing! Each lookout cabin is different & unique, and not all are equipped the same. I'm going to share with you some of my essential items I bring along to make sure i'm prepared & comfy cozy. @jetboil. Not all towers have stoves, but most do. I like having it as a backup. @ruffwear Clear Lake Blanket. Let the cuddling begin. @blackdiamond Cold Forge Hooded Jacket. So warm, so puffy! @teva Mocs. What more could a girl need? Puffy slippers that have hard soles so you can also outside? The perfect 'shoe'. @goalzero Lighthouse 400. Like it's name suggests, it's a lighthouse of a light! @ruffwear Kibble Kaddie. Portable dog food storage bag. @backcountry Jagger Pants. So, dang, comfy. New favorite lounge pant. @smithoptics The Comebacks. Futures so bright you gotta wear shades. You can get any of these items on backcountry.com and take 15% off your first order with the code MTNPUPS @backcountry #sponsored #goatworthy
Me: I want to travel. Bank account: like... to the backyard? // thankful my backyard looks like this. 🥾🌲🏔 #nottooshabby

Our Easy Adventure Friendly Meal Guide post is live on the blog! We have had dinner in some pretty epic places, spots that make fancy date nights in San Diego pretty much pale in comparison! (Maybe thats why we opt for adventures over expensive dates?) We have made dinner overlooking a crater, next to waterfalls, while camping on the beach, on mountain tops, and gathered our favorite (and not so favorite) camping recipes into a blog post to share with you guys. Pro tip: If you’re trying to impress someone with your cooking skills, just make them dinner after hours of hiking and force fed trail mix meals. Anything tastes delicious after a day of eating only trail mix. 🤙🏽
Guest Reviews 🌲 Still not enough snow for the snowcat but there is a storm coming tomorrow ❄️
Sending our Smokey Bear best wishes to everyone in California. Smokey Bear the character originated in 1944, but was the name given to an orphaned black bear cub rescued from a burned tree in a New Mexico wild fire in 1950. The crew that nearly died in the fire took the cub to treat his burned paws. While we focus on brown bears, here is a shot of two young black bears courting that we captured w @pioneerstudios for @bbcearth. Also: young Smokey on a plane and an active fire lookout. Be safe! #smokeybear @smokeybear #firelookout #bearwatching #wildlifephotography #wildfire #bearwatching #bearcub

Under construction, and coming soon to the @whistlestopretreat ! This #firelookout inspired cabin makes my heart swoon.
Felt so good I went back for more.

After hiking Cherry Peak ( background right), I went over to Eddy Peak lookout which provided great view of Clark Fork 4500' below, 7.2017 #firetower #firelookout #nwfirelookouts #montana
Went out for smokes at 10am and wound up on top of the world by noon 💁‍♀️✌💖 #gotgreenstoned #firelookout

We celebrated Take a Hike Day by spending the weekend in the sky. This weekend was packed with puppy snuggles, amazing views, ticks, ticks, bonfires, card games, sparkling wine, explorations, and good food.
Tip Top of Marin I found blue sky! Had to get out for my mind’s sake. #tiptop #mttamalpais #firelookout #marin #mycalifornia #wheretheressmoke #mentalhealth
After fighting a migraine all day yesterday (basically hugging the toilet throwing up from the intense pain), I was able to find enough energy to do another sunrise hike this morning and reset my mind and body. It was just what I needed. . . . . #womenwhohike #hiking #womenwhoexplore #rei1440project #mtpilchuck #optoutside #sunrise #firelookout

Morning hike to Mount Pilchuck fire lookout. Second half of trail was covered in ice. #mountpilchuck #hiking #ice #firelookout #sunrise #sonorthwest #pnw #mountains
That time of year where I get stuck in a lull, feeling restless but not wanting to leave the house much cause it's muddy and dreary in the valleys. the lakes aren't frozen yet so I can't ice fish. But theeeen; you head up a little higher & get beautiful days like this that makes me so excited for the months to come💙😊❄️
You could say today was a pretty good day.
The Whistle Stop Retreat - 4 vintage cabins nestled on the shores of Lake Five, just minutes from #glaciernationalpark . The views from the property are amazing. Two of the cabins have been recently renovated, and renovations are planned on the remaining two cabins spring and fall of 2019. Check out our listings on #VRBO at www.vrbo.com/1465581 and www.vrbo.com/1463443 Plus, the owner has a #firelookout cabin, and train car cabin under construction and coming soon!
A nice hike through a cloud up to Red Top Lookout in Snoqualmie. I guess the lack of view just means we'll have to go back, what a shame!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #washington #firelookout #hike #inacloud #moody #hiking #pnwonderland #moodygrams #getoutstayout #staywild #snoqualmie #optoutside #neverstopexploring #views #pnw #westcoastbestcoast

15 years ago today we had our first date: I took him out on Arcata-town for soup! . To be followed the next day by a Big Lagoon mushroom hunt, after which he made me pizza with our finds. I was pretty smitten at that point. . But it was about 3 months later on a weeklong snowshoe trip to what would become our favorite fire lookout and perch on top of the world that really made it clear: I love him! . This photo (on actual FILM!) was taken on that magical trip. . Over these 15 years this spot high in the Siskiyou’s has been so special for us. It’s even where our first book/child, “Conifer Country,” was conceived! . And we built a giant snow #sasquatch together, so yeah, that may have sealed the deal 😁 . BTW we’re Allison and Michael, married 11 years and founders of Backcountry Press. . And thank you @japhyssoup for not taking credit cards! Because I happened to have a check handy that evening 15 years ago, I’ll always be able to say that I took HIM out for our first date 🤣 . Bonus: anyone have a guess about what spot this is?
