Great hike to mono pass with a view at every switchback! #easternsierras #mammothstories #alltrails #rockcreektrail
I’ve always stopped to enjoy and to embrace the moment, BUUUT when there’s fierce mosquitoes lurking around, then I’d rather trek as fast as I can to reach the destination haha
My second time to the Mammoth hot springs and it as just as sick as the time before. It’s incredible to have the opportunity to go to places like this. I’m in a constant state of reflection and am always reminded that I’m a lucky man to live the life I live. When you strip life of material obligation, you can really appreciate the simple things that have been here since the beginning of time. A simple lifestyle is more than just convenient, it’s a trust in the system you believe in and an endless drive to see more. #roadtrippin #mammothlakes #mammothhotsprings #california #highway395 #highsierras #easternsierras #mountains #milkyway #astrostuff #niceastro #campingadventures #getout #optoutside #vanlife #ramagon
In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks. - JM Eastern Sierras, CA • July 2016
When I was a little girl I would run unabashedly into the ocean. As soon as we got to the beach, head force. Right in. Then I popped my eardrum bodysurfing and really I could have died by being pulled into the undertow. I washed up on the sand and came to my mother screaming “at” me. Grateful that I was alive. Since then I’ve had a stupid fear of the ocean. Growing up I used to swim in the pond at my aunts. Back and forth across the lake without fear or consequence. Then I saw the snapping turtles that came out of the same pond and I saw the little baby ducks disappear as they ate them. As I aged I wouldn’t step foot in the lake due to snakes 🐍 turtles 🐢 seeweed and yucky things that were going to get me. And so, I became a pool only girl. No big deal - except I missed out on so many jumping in, “just jump in, just do it, just jump” experiences. In Italy, in Mexico, these epic spots with cliff jumps and I would stand there crippled in fear. In the Dominican I floated all day, because the water was clear. Same in key west. When the water is clear I’ve been able to mess with it, but rarely over my head. So the fact that I spent this last weekend in these hot springs - relaxed and content in bliss is a miracle. I was in water that you couldn’t see your hand in, in random ass holes in the ground, with algae and who knows what on the bottom. But it was hot. And the views were sick. And for one of the first times in my life I sat on my ass and stared at the mountains ⛰ and didn’t worry what animal was coming to get me. I totes wore flip flops to get in, but I managed to take them off, to feel the bottom, to feel the sides - and I closed my eyes and I just was. #littlemiracles it doesn’t sound like much but this wouldn’t happen a few years ago. And now... I’m #hotsprings obsessed 😝if you’re in #socal and the #easternsierras go seek these puppies out because I have a feeling they won’t be there for long with the way the are running in their wonderful unregulated glory. 📸:@runbeersleep
Gardening in the Eastern Sierras. My Mom has three tomato plants and a ton of beets. We are a pickled beet family. Nothing better than a tomato right off the plant, and these are so close. . . . . . #garden #tomatoes #easternsierras
Need practice for my summer project. I spent my weekend practicing my wildlife photography. Patiently waiting and watching for the family of Quail that live in this house of sticks & branches on our rez. Waiting for them to slowly venture out so I can get a picture of those cute baby Quail. #brightsideofrez #indiancountry #rezlife #nativeamerican #wildlife #easternsierras #owensvalley

the Sierra Nevada mountains are primarily granitic mountains exposed by combinations of tectonic uplift and glacial erosion. the whole range is huge, running close to 650 kilometers latitudinally and just over 100 kilometers longitudinally, almost entirely within the state of California. mountains within the range peak at anywhere from 1500 meters to almost 5500 meters. ecologically they are quite rich. there are montane and alpine habitat types, some in rain shadow, meadows, forests, and even desert. they're different from north to south, from east to west, and from low to high elevation. seems like a neat range to become familiar with. #roadtrip #InyoNationalForest #SierraNevada #mountains #easternSierras #California #explore #travel #discover #nomad #Californiathewayiseeit

More exciting news! - We’re growing, more friendships are being created, more memories are being made, and there are only more adventures out there for the taking. With that, I'd also like to introduce you to @mikefederis , another fellow hiker and friend, who I've met through FTH. You may know him as the Humble Hiker, or you might have seen his amazing hiking videos he has documented of our hikes. Well Mike is volunteering his time to become a Friends That Hike Ambassador. This is exciting news! That means we're growing, more people want to get outside, and more people are getting inspired to become guides. With his knowledge and expertise, Mike is the perfect addition to this little group that could. - It's hard to believe how fast this group is growing since it first formed last November, and in that short amount of time I've met some of the most amazing human beings, a lot of you becoming my really good friends. I can't express how grateful I am for each and everyone of you. You guys are the very reason why this group exists. - Keep exploring...get inspired...make new friends. - Friends That Hike is grateful for you Mike. Look out for more hiking events from the Humble Hiker on our Facebook page. 🤘🏻🌲⛰⛺️ - - #52hikechallenge #hikecalifornia #sundayfunday #Travel #TravelingOurPlanet #rei1440project #EarthGallery #OurPlanetDaily #norcal #alpinehiking #sierranevada #easternsierras #LiveTravelExplore #californiahikes #TravelChannel #snowhiking #mountaineering #mtwhitney #landscape #backpacking #hiking #idhikethat #optoutside #takeahike #hike #hikingadventures #california #Wanderlust #friendsthathikela #friendsthathike

Sunrise from the highest peak of the lower 48. Camped above Guitar Lake, then started out on the trail to the summit at 2am to try and catch this sunrise and still have plenty of time to make our way down. #mtwhitney . . . #highsierratrail #johnmuirwilderness #mountain #ranges #peakbagging #sunrise #granitecountry #easternsierras #thruhike #hikebuddies #blisteredfeet #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #chasinglight #graspfreshair #breathe #mountainclimbing #therestisdownhill

Day 8. Hiked up to our wedding spot ❤️ Harly played in the snow like a happy crazy little monster. Then we took them to June lake to swim. We came way too close to hitting a deer on the highway. Like seriously within feet. And then this beauty was in the road up to the trailhead. #virginialakestrail #easternsierras #hike #finnabean #harlybug @decayxxx #getoutside
Getting closer to being here! Can't wait. #395 #easternsierras #robinsoncreek #fishing #fishinglife #letsgoexploring
