“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.” Will Rogers
Day 5 of appreciating my hiking pals.
I hiked more trails and accomplished more of my hiking goals last year all due to Ivette (no IG to link). We drove all night after work to capture sunrise at Crater Lake. Frequently found ourselfs travelling hours away into Washington and to conquer hikes we were not prepared for but refuse to quit on. The hike pictured was one where little to no research was done. A park ranger had previously told us it was the hardest hike in the park that didnt require technical climbing. We set our eyes on the prize and loved every minute of it. If it weren't for her I dont know if I'd have done half of the hikes that were accomplished in 2017. Thanks for being such a good sport to go to whatever trail I had discovered and absolutely had to do.
This is my home. Sometimes I have to come here to remind myself of the beauty of our Earth, the privilege I have to get to live a few miles from this view, & of all the hidden lights nestled within my life. There are so many, and I’m learning to let them in again. ✨Sound is off on the video because it was so, super windy, and it’s not pleasant white noise 😌✨
Something really special. 🙌🏻
Forever distracted by mountains
Forever healed by walks along the water’s edge 🍃
Currently: looking back at pics from last summer and going just a little stir crazy
Standing on a thawing lake is no easy feat, in other news check out those beautiful peaks!
Seems kinda crazy that I've never been to AK, but I do have orcas in my front yard, and this in the back. So I've got that going for me. North Cascades, WA
Summer is just about to break and I couldn’t be more excited. Just thinking about camping has my heart racing.
A view like this is why Snoqualmie Falls will always be one of my favorite places ❤️
I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way.
Not a care in the world besides reaching the summit... And maybe lunch and a beer when I get there.
Only the freshest for the freshest #fail

Memorial Weekend. I’ve had my ups and downs with his particular holiday, that’s for sure. A few years back, coming fresh off back-to-back-to-back deployments, the weight of the holiday was too fresh on my mind and heavy on my shoulders. It’s hard to have fun on a weekend where I’m supposed to remember the brothers I’ve lost and how incredibly sad it makes me to think of their stolen lives and potential. This has resulted in me kinda shutting myself in, both in my own house and in my own mind. But staying cooped up in my house, feeling sorry for myself, wondering all of the questions that start with “why?” and “what if...” is not the way to celebrate the memory of all those who are no longer with us. No. Instead I will do what everyone does this weekend; I will go play outside to welcome the summer, I will eat a lot of delicious food, I will have a drink or two. Most importantly, I will be thankful for the time given to me, and celebrate in the way they would celebrate if they only could. Have a safe and fun holiday weekend! Cheers 🍻
Ready for my hiking buddies to come home now 🖤
Five hikes in three weeks! ⠀
I’m so channeling that women who set her sights on Mt. Rainier. The woman who was so determined to reach her goal, NOTHING could stand in her way. But now I’m also tapping into that little girl who just wandered the forest because she loved being there. The little girl got lost in the push for the summit last summer, but she has found her way home 💕 ⠀
When you combine passion with direction towards a specific goal you become unstoppable. Happy Friday!
Happy Friday everyone! Looking forward to finding some solace in nature this weekend✌️ #happyfriday
Camping in beautiful surroundings with beautiful people, what more could you want
An old steam donkey from back in the logging days being slowly consumed by the forest it helped destroy. I’m sure there’s a metaphor in there somewhere, but I don’t know what metaphors mean or how dictionaries are organized
The North Cascades National Park turns 50 years old this year. Check out our latest blog post (link in bio), an interview with author/historian Laura Danner. Her book, Crown Jewel Wilderness, talks about how the establishment of the North Cascades National Park almost didn’t happen at all. 📸: @scott_kranz
let the weekend commence 🇺🇸 Thank you to all the men and women who have served, serving and will serve our country !
