Keep close to Nature’s heart and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.

•Parker Lake• A name that will always bring a smile to my face and a tug at my heart strings. Feeling loved and grateful on today's short, but sweet hike! 💙 #parkerlake #junelake #ca #optoutside #easternsierra #exploreca #anseladamswilderness #inyonationalforest
Here’s to this guy! 🍻 Despite his stomach angrily disagreeing with the idea, he summited #Ritter (which is a real live 13,000ft Mountain) last weekend and made some very stylish turns on the way down. It was our first ski outing together and we are now eternally bonded. Like forever. Buuuuut I don’t have his IG handle. Anybody know it? His name is Graham.... he’s pretty rad... really really ridiculously good looking? Tag him if you know him. #tummytroubles #soldier #skiuphill #earnyourturns #mindovermatter #anseladamswilderness #skitouring #splitboarding #easternsierra
Man am I lucky. I was driving out of Yosemite and caught this image. It was a phenomenal site. The water in the falls was a golden yellow from the sun. The water was raging, the mountains lit up by the sun, and the valley floor was as still as can be. Man am I lucky. I live only 2 hours from the most beautiful place on earth.

Banner peak reflected on Garnet Lake. Backpacking in Ansel Adams Wilderness back in Aug 2015, when California was experiencing a terrible drought. Wonder how it looks now. #throwback #sierranevada #anseladamswilderness #johnmuirtrail #inyonationalforest
#listencarefully #mountainyellowleggedfrog #anseladamswilderness #goexplore #jmt2017 Day 4 of adventures from the John Muir Trail . If you listen you can hear the endangered Mountain Yellow Legged Frog . I was at about 10,000ft elevation and was astounded their were frogs this high up and with snow everywhere . The water temp no doubt was 40 F degrees or colder . Nature never ceases to amaze , intrigue and educate me . 🌍🌲🏔
So this may look easy, but it’s a lot harder than a typical snowboard... and after this shot, I gracefully flew off this thing and ate it pretty hard on the ice!

Honestly, really looking forward to getting our "weekend warrior" lifestyle back... It's been such non-stop work lately. It's great, not complaining, in the long run its going to be so worth it. I just really miss the outdoors. This is a picture from our Mammoth Lakes trip. Our engagement trip ♥️💍 @heatheraharris looking forward to our next adventure!
The road into Yosemite Park: around every corner is a breathtaking view... see more pics on bio link above
Further into #Yosemite and you meet Bridalveil Falls - probably the best example of a glacial hanging valley. The weather was not the best for long distance views, but the rain adds atmosphere and force. . Follow link in bio for full photo story ☝️ #toldwithexposure
One of my favorite things to do during the spring and summer months is to scout for wildflowers. I never leave the house without my flower falcon guide and try to always take a photograph of every new species I come across. Among my many favorites are the Alpine Lily, Large-Leaf Lupine and as seen here, Bigelow’s Sneezeweed. One day I plan to do a watercolor rendition of every Sierra wildflower that I have photographed 🌿 Now that spring has sprung, I am anxious to ramble about and enjoy all that is emerging from the earth! Who else is excited for wildflower season?! 🌸

#tbt over 20 years to chillin' on Sierra summits with good friends, looking forward to more of this in the near future. And that hat is even dorkier than the one I wear now.
As a lifelong south Texas resident, I'd never seen actual snow until April 2017...and it was just falling snow in New Mexico with *some* accumulation. Fast forward to September 2017, I went on this solo JMT section hike and I was pretty nervous when I kept seeing weather reports for a storm expected to hit during my last night on the trail. Sure enough, my tent was battered all night with wind and rain, and then the snow began falling early in the morning. The anxiety was worth it when I woke up to this winter wonderland. For others accustomed to snow, it's likely no different than any other day, but this was an unforgettable experience for me! ❄☃ #redsmeadow #jmt #johnmuirtrail #johnmuirwilderness #pacificcresttrail #pct #snow #mountains #backpacking #hiking #hikingadventures #hike #camping #sierranevada #anseladamswilderness #wanderlust #thetraillife #trail #theoutbound #reiproject1440 #landscape_lovers #thegreatoutdoors #california #californiaadventure
Not a bad view from the road. Yesterday we attempted to get back to a favorite trail, Burt Canyon. The snow kept us from driving very far down the road so we walked it and just made it to the trail parking. Still a beautiful walk! We can’t wait until the summer and we can get back further. #easternsierra #easternsierras #familyadventure #choosemountains #sierranevadamountains #findyourpark #hikecalifornia #pacificcresttrail #highcountry #lifeoutside #optoutside #reiadventure #whyihike #hikemore #yosemitenationalpark #anseladamswilderness #pacificcresttrail #backcountrylife #monocounty #hikingfamily #backcountryadventure #changeyouraltitude #hikemoreworryless #patagoniareno #hooverwilderness #monocountytourism #backcountryparents #backcountryparenting #thevillageatmammoth #backcountry_parenting
#johnmuirtrail Day Two: Thousand Island Lake to North side of Mt. Donahue. With the high snow levels of 2017, this day was a beast! I’m a word: Postholing. As we ascended towards Mt Donahue, there was snow everywhere! It was so beautiful to hike this portion of the JMT. I did it once before in 2013 and there was zero snow. This year the trail disappeared beneath a myriad of false trails, carved by those before us making their way to the summit. More than once we had to stop and break out the map navigate around huge ponds and overflowing streams, or to get back on the trail after trying to avoid midday mush or serious postholing. Day Two also brought us a nice meetup with an old friend - one I section hiked with several years earlier. He was realizing his dream of doing the entire JMT! We also had our most serious water crossings. We had two crossings approaching waist deep which were no joke. This year was my lightest pack weight ever, but when you’re waist deep in ice cold water every pound feels like the one which might sink you with a misstep. Thankfully, everyone navigated like a pro and aside from wet boots and socks, we made camp before dark with enough time to get dry and make a nice warm meal. #johnmuirtrail2017 #ultralight #backpacking #mtdonahuepass #sunrise #postholing #fuji #fujixt1 #astrophotography #milkyway #thesierras #thousandislandlake #bannerpeak #ritterrange #anseladamswilderness #pct #pacificcresttrail

I wrote a blog yesterday about “Van Life Essentials” - you’d be surprised how many life lessons one can learn from simply building something (link in bio)
Broke camp much later than planned because I just didn't want to leave. Don't mind the chick standing there in a dreamlike trance. Just walk around, folks, WALK AROUND. #garnetlake #anseladams #anseladamswilderness #jmt #johnmuirtrail #johnmuirwilderness #pct #wilderness #adventure #wanderlust #backpacking #camping #lake #mountains #reiproject1440 #theoutbound #ourdailyplanet #thetraillife #thegreatoutdoors #landscape_lovers #hiking #nationalpark
Thousand Island Lake! Gusty winds made for choppy water, but serenity still prevailed. Definite plans to return some day soon and camp for a zero day. #jmt #johnmuirtrail #johnmuirwilderness #pct #californiaadventure #california #anseladams #anseladamswilderness #backpacking #wanderlust #hiking #hikingadventures #landscape_lovers #reiproject1440 #theoutbound #ourdailyplanet #thousandislandlake

Sometimes I take people from Southern California to Mammoth Lakes. I always cherish the view I get of the Mt Whitney spires along the western face as I drop in to the eastern Sierra. For a split second I feel myself trudging along the talus fields, breathing the thin air as I make my way towards the summit. If you are ever on my flight I’ll point them out to you. “Whitney spires” #mammothmountain #westcoastacrylic #easternsierra #johnmuirtrail #anseladamswilderness #anseladams #sequoianationalpark #kingscanyonnationalpark #northcountysd #pacificnorthwest #victoriabc #olympiaartist #ultralightbackpacking #rayjardine #trestles #westcoast #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #smithrock #portlandia #santacruz #sanluisobispo #santabarbara
