Spent a gorgeous weekend camping on the peninsula so I could keep climbing my way to more lookouts! Thanks to @bubba_crosier and @bealbrown for joining me and crazy Jake on lookout 42!! Only 51 left to complete my goal! Ah, the crazy things we do for fun 😜 . . . . #olympicpeninsula #pnw #adventure #back40hikes #choosemountains #discoverpnw #exploremore #getoutside #hikewashington #igwashington #seekthetrails #optoutside #liveyouradventure #ourpnw #washingtonexplored #sheadventures #herPNWlife #washingtontrails #firelookout #outdoorproject #radgirlslife #sheexplores #wildher

What a way to spend this weekend celebrating Earth Day! I will never stop loving the immense beauty of this planet. Take a moment every day to appreciate everything that is around you. Life is beautiful and we couldn’t do it without The Earth.
Springtime in Seattle brings everyone outside! Song: Lake Michigan by @roguewaveband
I climbed Eldorado as a farewell to Seattle before moving back to New England. The Cascades made such an impression on me, the peaks there almost seem like my rightful home. Can’t wait to get back there soon, and hopefully with a little help from @bakerguides. #bakermtnguides
Thanks for putting up with my random photo shoots for these past 6 months! Here’s to more in cooler places!

Are you a morning person, or a night owl? I have been a morning person my entire life. Nothing makes me feel better than getting up before the sun and watching it all begin for another day. There's something about the quiet stillness that I could never give up. This morning on my trail run/hike it was just me and the birds singing. The sunrise wasn't anything spectacular, but the light and the fog made up for it completely. I arrived at the trailhead at 5:45 and there was no one there but me. That kind of thing, I have found, doesn't happen as often in the evening hours. But aside from all the great peace, quiet and solitude, it just makes my whole day a thousand times better when I get out of bed and embrace it. As someone who has struggled with some pretty severe depression, staying in bed has never been a good idea for me anyway. I like to get going early, before I have time to talk myself out of going at all! Of course all of this means that I am normally in bed by 8:30pm. Don't judge me. 😜😘 #rei1440project #optoutside #goatworthy #testedtough #briskoutdoors #herpnwlife #back40hikes #bpmag #neverstopexploring #sunrise #outdoors #outdoorproject #ourwild #wanderlust #choosemountains #igersbestshot #wild #wilderness #outside #nature #pnw #wanderwashington #cascadiaexplored #upperleftusa #bestofnorthwest #thenwadventure #washingtontrails #livewashington #nwadventurephoto #explorewashington
Flashback to what was one of my most emotionally difficult and also incredibly empowering solo days in the mountains. I'll never forget how distraught I was with torturous PTSD symptoms on this day. I wanted to quit so many times. I cried and cursed much of the way up the mountain. I was angry at the world, at my world, at my circumstances. Nothing I did would make the trauma memories in my head stop, so I just kept cursing and crying and putting one foot in front of the other. I never thought I would be able to summit that day, but I was determined to fight for every step. That's exactly what I did, and I made it, and I have never cried so hard on a mountain summit in my life. It was a truly life changing day, as I gained so much more confidence in my ability to overcome this whole mess of my life. πŸ‘Š #NeverQuit #rei1440project #optoutside #testedtough #goatworthy #briskoutdoors #ourwild #wildernessculture #herpnwlife #choosemountainswomen #outdoors #wild #wanderlust #mountains #pnwoutdoorwomen #back40hikes #bpmag #ptsd #choosemountains #thegreatoutdoors #pnw #ourpnw #upperleftusa #wanderwashington #bestofnorthwest #washingtonexplored #in2nature #livewashington #fighter #explorewashington
Taytem led us on an adventure on the back acreage today. She is such a blessing to this family. . . #adventurer #adventure #tinyguide #petitehiker #back40hikes #farmlife #staylittle #wildone #adventureswithtaytem #auntlife
You've been assigned this mountain to show others that it can be moved. ~Unknown. This week someone whom I consider(ed?) my closest friend told me she doesn't think I am "capable of handling" the career that I want to go after. I didn't respond at the time because I was shocked; but since then I have responded a thousand times in my head. Bottom line: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. Obviously this person forgets the strength that I have and the incredible obstacles I have overcome. Obviously she hasn't seen me on fire. A few basic things about me: I am resilient, I am determined, and I will prove you wrong (especially if you put me down). Bring it! πŸ‘Š #rei1440project #optoutside #goatworthy #testedtough #back40hikes #bpmag #briskoutdoors #takemoreadventures #igersbestshot #ourwild #roamtheplanet #roam #choosemountains #outdoors #wild #wanderlust #mountains #outside #herpnwlife #mthrworld #ourpnw #pnw #upperleftusa #bestofnorthwest #wanderwashington #cascadiaexplored #explorewashington #washingtonexplored #livewashington #livewithgumption

Adventuring with these two guys ❀️My 12-yr old adventure pup who still acts 3, and my amazing dad, who's celebrating his 70th, going on 30th! My dad makes me so proud and never ceases to amaze me!! How many others could do 10 miles of hiking/snowshoeing in a day... at 70?! Love getting out with these two!! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‘πŸΎ . . . . #radgirlslife #optoutside #neverstopexploring #adventure #back40hikes #choosemountains #70isthenew30 #pnw #thehikemovement #seekthetrails #findyourtrail #getoutside #hikewashington #adventuredog #igwashington #mtnchicks #herpnwlife #wildher #wildernessculture #livemore #ourpnw #sheexplores #upperleftusa
Doing it for the money.
We went for a nice little stroll in the back 40 the other day #bushwhacker #trails #back40hikes #myboy #stillwinter

These two fun, smart, and gorgeous girls let me steal them for an adventure filled Saturday! Tacos, hiking, dogs, and coffee, safe to say we had a good time! Can't wait to do it again! #gowithoutwalls #hiketheozarks #back40hikes #lakeann #bellavista
Cedar of Attention. (Get it?) This tree just wouldnt stop photo bombing this gorgeous river rapid capture in Olympic National Forest. So we let it stay. (And on that note, if anyone is more talented in Photoshop then we are....jk--never a reason to Photoshop nature! ) #back40hikes #pnw #hikingseason nears
This pup loves to hike! πŸ’œ#nationalpuppyday
It’s often not easy working from home with a baby, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. These moments are precious & can’t be missed. Took a break yesterday to recharge in the back 40 for some exercise, nature therapy & fresh air for Jake. #mecbackpackcarrier #back40hikes #momentrepreneur #naturetherapy πŸƒ #stellaanddotstylist #qualitytimewithbabe #mysanityreplenished #coreworkout #goodwaytotakeabreak
Where have I been this past week? Unfortunately not outdoor adventuring as much as I should, instead I've been adventuring indoors working on my condo remodel and learning more things than I need about the intricacies of finish carpentry. I think I'd rather study trees and lumber from the trails!!! πŸŒ²β˜€οΈπŸŒ²β˜€οΈ . . . . #trailtherapytuesday #adventureanywhere #back40hikes #pnw #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #exploremore #getoutside #hikewashington #igwashington #optoutside #northwestisbest #sheexplores #upperleftusa #artofvisuals #nature #livemore #ourwild
Dear Bellingham, You never fail to leave me breathless from your immense beauty. Love, Wilson
Looking forward to the beautiful morning light that summer brings 😍 #tbt πŸ“·: @saibotsemaj
It was a gorgeous pre-spring day in central/eastern Washington - you can't beat 60° and sunshine in mid March! The pups and I only hiked 6.25 miles, but we are all wiped out. Ancient Lakes is my first hike outside of my own back yard for 2018. I can't wait to get to the mountains!

"God never made an ugly landscape. All that the sun shines on is beautiful, so long as it is wild." - John Muir . And boy was the sun shining this weekend!! β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ Not winning any awesome scenery points for this photo, but after fighting the hordes out and about Saturday, today's little slice of heaven was an unremarkable fire road with ugly power lines and few views but full, beautiful sunshine, zero people, and 6 salamanders out sunning themselves. This made it the most beautiful place I visited all weekend!!! β˜€οΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Š . . . #pnw #tigermountain #solitude #sunshine #sheadventures #wildher #trailrunning #trailsisters #seekthetrails #createyourtrail #adventureanywhere #back40hikes
I think this Barbwire has been out at the farm for a very long time scroll right to see the giant tree it’s growing through the middle of! #farmlife #treefarm #barbedwire #backforty #back40 #back40hikes #daysgoneby
If I don’t post a picture of a bike every once in a while I will explode
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
