Spring isn't coming fast enough. Already planning next year's adventures with this one and everyone else that joins us. 🏕🍃 #optoutside #unplug #wanderlust #backpacking #getoutstayout #whennaturecalls #anseladamswilderness #edizalake #easternsierras #mammothmountain #adventurepartner

Worth every drop of sweat . JMT DAY 7 - DUCK LAKE AT SUNSET . Duck Lake at sunset . The day’s hike from Deer Creek to Duck Lake was not long but consisted of a stretch of long and gradual incline and a mile long steep incline of multiple switchbacks from Duck Lake Junction to the lake. The clouds hovering over us and sprinkling on us while going up worried us a bit, but they mostly stayed on the other side of the lake by the time when we were done setting up our camp. . The lake was simply beautiful. No wonder why it attracted quite a few day hikers over Mammoth Crest, aka Duck Lake Pass, from Mammoth Lakes. I had no idea how close the lake was from the town. Although it was never one of resupply options we considered, a hiker just returning from the town after resupply pickup shared some ideas. . The glow cast on the southeast ridge line was quite intense. And I thought to myself that it was worth every drop of sweat that I shed while going up the last mile from the junction. The winds that had been blowing pretty much all day were eventually dying down just in time for the sunset. . Wondered if they were the permanent residents of this lake when we saw a flock of six ducks earlier although none of them was around at sunset. Also wondered how the name of the lake came about. .

A weekend of sub-10 temperatures, altitude sickness, and endless ankle-breaking rock scrambles was all worth it for the clearest lakes, the most serene nature, and the laughter from “would you rather’s” #thousandislandlakes
2 day into our backpacking trip. After leaving Ediza lake we were back on the trial heading for Garnet lake. After hiking through two beautiful mountains passes we reached our destination. The size of Garnet lake sent a much needed shot of energy into our group. #backpacking #Garnetlake #edizalake #ansleadams #anseladamswilderness #strangetrails #wildempty #hiking #hikingadventures

My last stop before San Francisco was Mammoth Lakes, a place I had been wanting to check out for a long time. I planned out a 17 mile-ish hike for myself in the #anseladamswilderness that included both the #pct and the #johnmuirtrail , and approximately 6 lakes. . . . #California #wildcalifornia #californiaoutdoors #naturalcalifornia #californiagram #caligram #californialife #nationalforest #forestservice #publiclands #usfs #inyonationalforest #rei1440project #optoutside #explore #neverstopexploring #womenwhoexplore #roadtrip #wildernessnation #alltrails #thediscoverer #hikerslist #wander #wanderlust #travel #travelgram #hikingtheglobe
Garnet Lake on a beautiful (freezing) autumn day. The High Sierras never disappoint. #anseladamswilderness #highsierra #inyonationalforest #keepmoving #exploremore #backpacking #outdoors @backpackermag @rei @backcountry
Was gonna play some fetch here but there were hunters everywhere. I’d rather not take that chance even if I was wearing bright clothes, Aluinn was not lol 🌲⛰

What an amazing weekend! I got the opportunity to knock off a destination from my backpacking bucket list and hike to Thousand Islands Lake in Ansel Adams Wilderness. Special thanks to @johnlin1214 for getting the permits and to @staceysli for both braving the single digit temps in the mornings and the altitude sickness. Quick shoutout to my dog for waking up super early in the morning to want to pee. Your call from Mother Nature helped me experience a sunrise that I will forever cherish. Pictures will never do this place justice and I feel I can only share a small piece of what I experienced this past weekend. I definitely will be coming back here again.

Day 1 of an amazing 3 night, 4 day backpacking trip. We started out at Minaret Vista hiking down to Agnew Meadows, from there we followed the Shadow trail/ River trail to Shadow lake. We then pushed on to our final destination for the day. At around 5:30pm we reach Lake Ediza and set up camp for the night. #backpacking #agnewmeadows #shadowlake #edizalake #rivertrail #anseladams #anseladamswilderness #strangetrails #hiking #Campaignhat #itsastetson
I'm a strong woman. I do not sit around feeling sorry for myself, nor let people mistreat me. I don't respond to people who dictate to me or try to bring me down. If I fall I will rise up even stronger because I am a survivor and not a victim. I am in control of my life and there is nothing I can't achieve. #fillyourselfup 💚🌱
Enjoying the wild-ness is the wilderness. Cali style. 34 trail miles in 3 days. #johnmuirwilderness #anseladamswilderness #desolationwilderness #fueledbykindcoffee #ruffwearharness #ruffweardog #vanlife
One of the main rewards of #backpacking is gaining #perspective Two #hikers traverse below #ritter and #banner peaks in the #anseladamswilderness giving us a sense of scale that informs that #evolving perspective. #sierranevada #highsierra #easternsierra #mammothlakes #mammothstories #monocountytourism #amongthewild #optoutside

Ready to be back on these trails...
I’ve spent the past several days immersed in editing a video of this backpacking trip to Thousand Island Lake. I love making videos because it makes it possible for me to virtually revisit an experience. #thisgirlhikes #thousandislandlake #anseladamswilderness

The range of light putting on a show atop Donahue pass as we left Tuolumne meadows. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and much as I enjoyed this sunset
