Headed back to civilization after a few great days in the wilderness. #bornwild #lifeisbetterinthemountains #optoutside #anseladamswilderness #rangeoflight #sierranationalforest
Well my solo adventure did NOT go as planned! Two hours into my drive I encountered signs of the Ferguson Fire (currently 30,000 acres). At Yosemite’s entrance the Air Quality Index was above 200 and the air was hard to breath. Yosemite’s picturesque views were entirely hidden by thick smoke. • I kept driving to Tioga Pass where the air was clearer. Started a hike to the top of Mt Dana, Yosemite’s second tallest peak at 13,061’. By the time I passed the tree line, it started thundering. Uh oh. You do NOT want to be on top of a mountain when lightning strikes! I was going fast and I knew the trail wasn’t long, so I kept pushing on. But most people were already descending and a few told me they turned around when they heard thunder. It started raining and even hailing. I kept going up because I knew I was close and I could hear the thunder coming from the direction going away from me. When I reached the summit, I was greeted with these incredibly views of the Eastern Sierras. The peak was so steep that you can’t see ANY views to the south until you reach the summit! But I was HELLA scared about the lightning so I set my poles down, held onto a rock, took a few photos and then booked it back down (scared as hell and alone because no one else was dumb enough to climb a mountain in these conditions). • After I made it to my car I drove through rain and hail on Tioga Pass (not for the faint of heart) and then toward my campsite. But it was seriously storming—pouring, slick roads, lightning every few seconds. I did NOT want to drive back into those mountains to set up camp in the lightning. • I made the decision to head back to the Bay Area. On my drive home, my mom informed me that the highway I was driving on and my campground had a flash flood warning. I wondered what the conditions on the mountain would have been like if I had taken just a little longer. • I was extremely disappointed that I didn’t live out my solo camping, alpine lake hiking fantasies. Obviously weather doesn’t always cooperate, but my anxiety was also a factor. All day I had such anxious feelings about being alone. Maybe I’m not ready to be a solo adventurer yet—but I’ll get there!
Yet another #sierra sunset. #visitmammoth
My homage to AA #anseladamswilderness

A little known fact about me, when I was 12 my parents moved me back to California. I lived near Bishop California off hwy 395. So I explored mammoth lakes, mono lake and the sierras as a kid. But coming back this time was something special. Don’t get me wrong Arizona is amazing but wow this place stole my heart today. We wandered with no trails and nothing but gps to guide us. It was awesome. #sierranationalforest
During out hike to #devilsbathtub located in the #anseladamswilderness , #highsierras , my group and I couldn't help but notice the amount of #devistation that has occurred to the #nature . These #mushroom looking things are actually #Fungus and although some #fungi is not bad. The #overwhelming #amounts we saw was not good either. #wildlifephoto  #wildlifelovers #earthfocus  #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth  #wildlifeaddicts  #natgeowild #natgeo #natgeohub  #natgeowildlife  #natgeopl  #natgeowild_hd #natgeoru #natgeopix  #wildlifeperfection #fresno #559 #sanger #california
I'll take the attack of hundreds of mosquitoes, wear the obnoxious mosquito net, and even put my food bowl INSIDE my net, and look like an astronaut for this exquisite #paradise . Any day. Every day.

I think I’m addicted to Yosemite
Lakes everywhere 💦 #johnmuirtrail #summer2018
I hike through the trees to finally get my first full view of the stunning Thousand Island Lake underneath the perch of Mount Davis naturally framed by the trees. #backpacker #wilderness #stunning #flawless #water #bluewaterbluesky #mountains #nature #outside #naturalframe #tranquil #thousandislandlake #anseladamswilderness #sierras #backcountry #landscapes #landscapephotography #nature #agrocrag #mountdavis #mtdavis #inyo #nationalforest #california
I love the flowers of Yosemite! This is near Donohue Pass. #anseladamswilderness #flowers #flower #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #photooftheday #photographer #tbt ❤️
Just a few more pics from our trip. Big thanks to #tsdyuerkr and lasandra for hiking in our last #foodresupply at the suspension bridge in #kingscanyonnationalpark . Awesome to see them out there. Especially when your down to a pack of ramen and some trail mix. #cali #california #hike #hiking #hikingadventures #thetrek #jmtfoundation #jmt #johnmuirtrail #sequioanationalpark #yosemite #anseladamswilderness #inyonationalforest #backpacking #hikewithwife #getoutside #optoutside #ospreypacks #msrgear #altrarunning #nemoequipment

I love the contrail reflections in this little Billy Lake! Come to think of it I love ANY reflection in still waters. #anseladamswilderness #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #lake #water #wilderness #tbtfriday #tbt ❤️ #tbt #photooftheday #photography
When Yosemite lifted her skirts of smoke her beauty was entrancing. Her peaks rose majestically into a dark blue sky, and everywhere you turned - even in tiny cracks in rocks - she had wreathed herself in flowers. #anseladamswilderness #wilderness #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #mountains #mountain #flower #photooftheday #photo #photography #tbt ❤️ #tbtfriday #instaphoto #instagood
Spent some time off the grid last week. No news, no “facilities”, but excellent hikes, food, 🍺🍺, and company! @symg1991 @southgatebrewco #anseladamswilderness #bakrgal

FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN!!! Here’s a shot from a little south over the Mammoth Pass, from a peak I scrabbled up off the PCT, of the Ferguson Fire currently burning in Yosemite. I had thunderstorms above me rolling, striking and raining on me, and the smoke to the west mixing in the sky with clouds and hanging in the valley in the foreground. I hope we get this contained soon! Yosemite Valley has been choked with smoke since it began.
Camp site, night 2. There was a little bit of smoke in the air from the fire in Mariposa County. Still an awesome view. . . . #thousandislandlake #anseladamswilderness #jmt #jmt2018 #camping #gossamergear #theonetent #bannerpeak #thruhike #teachersonsummervacation #teachersonvacation #teachersonthejmt
Thousand Island Lake was beautiful this morning. All the smoke from the previous day cleared out. I'll be on the JMT the next 2.5 weeks. I'll update when I can. Feel free to ask questions and I'll answer them as best as I can. . . . #jmt #thousandislandlake #jmt2018 #johnmuirtrail #thruhike #hiking #backpacking #anseladamswilderness #bannerpeak #teachersonsummervacation #teachersonthejmt
Currently doing some trail work on and around the Pacific Crest Trail in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Looks much different out here compared to last year. Shred.
Searching for the words to explain my connection to these spaces, my senses hungover from the constant beauty around every bend of the trail. For this extended wilderness experience, only elevated every emotion I’ve ever had in my life. “I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.” -John Muir . . . . . #jmt2018 #johnmuirtrail #thruhike #sierranationalforestwilderness #anseladamswilderness #kingscanyonnationalpark #sequoianationalpark #solohiker #soloadventure #scheelsoutdoors #scheels
Shadow Lake is beautiful, but it is lined with so many trees that it's difficult to take in the wider scene. I solved this by going up the southern side of the lake and the Ritter Range of the Sierra made itself known. This rock bound tamarack pine and I viewed the sunrise together.

Spent the past 4 days in the #anseladamswilderness soaking up the positive trail vibes, swimming in alpine lakes, drinking vodka, cuddling with my puppy, bonding with like minded girlfriends, getting eaten alive by mosquitos, eating dinner out of a bag, chasing sunsets, watching bears, and experiencing trail life. I’m so excited that I have officially decided that I am going to thru-hike the #johnmuirtrail solo from South to North next year 🙏🌿👣⛰ #traillife @keenportland @keen @peoplesocks @tecnu_outdoor @gaiagps @garmin @msr_gear @katadyn_group Thanks for always keeping me safe and comfy on the trails ❤️❤️❤️ #hikelikeagirl #cashmeoutside #hikerbabes #weareoutdoor #wildernessbabes #seekthetrails #takemebackpacking #outdoortherapy #keepitwild   #outdoorsisbetter #sheventures #outdoorbella  #outdoorwomen #sheexplores #amongthewild #naturerocks #trailchat   #callofthewild #adventuremore #choosemountains #seeknature   #sheadventures   #womenwhoadventure #letsadventuretogether #dirtysweatyhappy #naturesbeauty #adventurefreaks
Travel is rebellion in its purest form..... ....... We, sometimes, choose to never come back. 🗺 • • • • • John Muir Trail - July 2018 #hikertrash #hikeeverything #watercrossing #stream #johnmuirtrail #jmt #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #inyonationalforest #anseladamswilderness
Some mornings you just have to take Muir’s advice and break clear away (even just for a couple few hours) while the sky is blue and there are trails lined with brilliant flowers as high as your head. #anseladamswilderness #inyonationalforest #mammothlakes #monocounty #running #itsallyours #publiclands
Thinking about 5 days in Yosemite and Ansel Adams Wilderness like... #EyesOnThePrize 🏕🏔👀😂 . This week’s #SoCalTravels Crew @keananmusic @crushquest @michelleperner
Morning views.
Summit register, Graveyard Peak.
When the hard work of searching for Matthew's remains collides with the sublime.....sometimes I just have to stop.....remember to absorb the extraordinary.....and breathe in every moment here at 12,000 feet. #findmatthewgreene #needleinahaystack #sar #searchandrescue #anseladamswilderness #jmt #mammothstories #easternsierra #wildernessculture #getoutside #explore #neverstopexploring #rei #yosemite #rockclimbing #iceclimbing #backpacking #adventureculture #manoffaith #followerofchrist #destiny #liveyourdreamsandfinishstrong #perseverance #nofear #blackdiamond #thenorthface #lasportiva #motivationalspeaker #author TheShortestStraw.net
I escaped to the Ansel Adams wilderness and photogenic doesn’t even begin to adequately describe the jagged peaks and peaceful lakes. #anseladamswilderness #thousandislands #nature #lakes #landscape #mountains #naturalbeauty #sierras #stunning #gorgeous #photography #a7rii #landscapephotography #naturaldesign #glaciers
Banner Peak and Mt. Ritter command respect as they tower over Garnet Lake in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. The stormy afternoon provided an electrifying environment that nigh overwhelmed my senses, and left me with an increased appreciation of the Sierra Nevada.
