6 km on a new (to us) trail today. First hike of autumn and feeling very autumny! I have had a lot of stress about trying new places because I worry that I won’t physically be able to do it but daily practice has really helped that voice to shut the fuck up. . . . #unlikelyhikers #fatgirlshiking #allbodiesaregoodbodies

She’ll be leading hikes & building body positive community in the Spokane, WA area. . “I define self-care as going somewhere I have never been or doing something I have never done! Not only do I think Spokane needs and deserves a Fat Girls Hiking community but I think Spokane needs and deserves a community that is safe for absolutely everyone! I am a playful person and I am so excited to get outside and play with you!” Read more about FGH chapters & Andrea on the website. Swipe up link in stories! .

#sundayfunday yesterday with @eess0229 ! Hiked a 7.2 mile loop on Camel's Hump, the second tallest mountain in Vermont, on a gorgeous fall day! We came up the south side and took a detour to remnants of a WWI plane crash, then scaled some rock (scary) to reach the summit. It was so clear I could see the Adirondacks (NY) and the White Mountains (NH). Easily the best hike I've ever done on this coast! 🗻✅ • • #optoutside #gothefuckoutside #newengland #fall #camelshump #greenmountains #mountain #hike #hikeVT #fatgirlshiking #mtnchicks #strongwomen #powerlifterswhohike #northofthewall #winteriscoming
Together we can change the fitness industry. We are thrilled to be able to support the important work of not only trainers and gyms, but athletes and communities. Body positivity is coming to the masses and we are thrilled to announce our first TWO Sponsored Communities, Ladies Who Shred, created by Amy Cullen, and Fat Girls Hiking founded by Summer. . Amy is building a community that's encouraging all types of women to get into adventure sports and the outdoors. Ladies Who Shred is for all ages, body shapes, body sizes, body types, ethnicities, and economic means. It's about raising awareness and supporting women already shredding and those who want to get into it. They foster growth and support through peer-to-peer education and confidence-building. Amy herself is a self-proclaimed "unlikely adventurer" and proof that women are capable of so much more than the media tells/sells us. The goal is to change the world and redefine what it means to be a shredder, and in particular, a Lady Shredder! Use the #ladieswhoshred to be featured! @ladieswhoshred . Summer is the founder of Fat Girls Hiking, a community-based organization that offers representation for people in marginalized bodies and organizes group hikes and adventures. She empowers her community to listen to the needs of their body while hiking and makes stops often for rest, water, and snacks. Self-care in the outdoors is one of Summer's favorite tools in healing. Fat Girls Hiking currently has 6 chapters (Portland, Knoxville, Seattle, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and Vancouver, B.C.) and is continuing to grow! Use the #fatgirlshiking to be featured! @fatgirlshiking . #superfithero #superfitherosponsoredcommunity #communitybuilding #sponsored #trailsnotscales #representationmatters #losehatenotweight #femalehikers #girlswhohike #ladyhikers #womenwhohike #athleticwomen #womenoutdoors #strongwomen #outdoorwomen #diversifyoutdoors #inclusivehiking  #ladyshredders #unlikelyadventurers #inclusivesport #socialchange #allbodies #allgenders #thefutureisfemale #girlswhoshred #sportisahumanright
Through summer highs and autumn lows, through “holding on’s” and “letting goes” in her heart, she deeply knows, all of this is a part of how she will grow - @morganharpernichols #autumn #seasonchange #growth #life #writings #landscape #fall
“The body is no dumb thing from which we struggle to free ourselves. In proper perspective, it is a rocket ship, a series of atomic cloverleafs, a tangle of neurological umbilici to other worlds and experiences.” - Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes in Women Who Run With the Wolves. ————— The last few years have consisted of much personal work coming to terms with my body, learning to accept and appreciate its functions, abilities, and limitations. But I’ve also practiced pushing those limits and learning along with my body, not despite it. Women are taught to scrutinize their bodies, they are told frequently that their bodies have too much of this or not enough of that. Well, my too much and not enough body climbs mountains and transports me to and through incredible experiences, and that is something worth celebrating. ————— 📸 of me climbing to Porcupine Lake, taken by @rohangypsy , Holy Cross Wilderness, Colorado, July 2018. . . . . . #takemebackthere #colorado #holycrosswilderness #nationalforest #publiclands #books #bookquotes #womenwhorunwiththewolves #bodypositivity #outdoorsforeveryBODY #outsiderx #nurseinprogress #nursingstudent #hiking #choosemountains #adventurelikeagirl #hikelikeagirl #girlswhohike #womenwhohike #fatgirlshiking #unlikelyhikers #womaninthewild #wildish #morewolfthanwoman #backpacking #humanpoweredadventures #foottravelonly #continentaldividetrail #CDT #longdistancehiking

Haven’t been on many “hikes” in my life, but The Narrows in Zion National Park was by far the best one yet. #ketojourney #workoutjourney #thenarrows #zionnationalpark #fatgirlshiking #naturehasnofilter #nastywoman #happyhippie
We were talking about our trips yesterday and I showed off pictures and I just fell in love with the mountains all over again. This hike was tough and I had to stop a lot, but the payoff was so worth it. I still get embarrassed or self-conscious on climbs because my asthma is so much worse when on an inine and I stop so often, but I'm trying to learn not to. Because who cares how long it takes or how many times I stop to catch my breath? I did it. I made the climb and then I climbed down and hiked a bunch more that day. And I aborted another climb midway through because sometimes I just can't. But I tried. And I have to stop being upset with myself for listening to my body. #fatgirlshiking #girlswhohike #mtrainiernationalpark #mtrainier #asthmalife
Scuba is not all about diving. Even if it is the best part! Hiking is a great way to keep active and have fun on land. Looking back at the best parts of our #doorcounty hiking & getting excited for our next trip! #unlikelyhikers #unlikelyhiker #fatgirlshiking #plussizescuba #girlslovetravel #fatgirlatraveling #embraceyourinnerwhale

Hi there! We thought we would take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and our We Hike California project. We’re Kiley (L) and Kendall (R)... yes, we know.😉 In setting our goals for 2018 and beyond, we came up with a pretty far fetched idea- to hike every park with a trail in the state of California. As life-long residents of California, a state with so much geographic diversity, we realized that we have seen so little of it. Moving through this project for the last nine months, we’ve been to so many new places, seeing parts of our state we’ve never been to and meeting some really great folks along the way. We hope to inspire others, to change the narrative about the outdoors and create more inclusion on the trail. Come follow along on our journey to expand our love of the Golden State. 💚🙌🏾🙌🏽🌲 * Jack London State Historic Park, Glen Ellen, California * Ancestral land of the Coast Miwok and Graton Rancheria. **************** * #52hikeschallenge #adventureanywhere #alltrails #diversifyoutdoors #exploremore #fatgirlshiking #findyourpark #forceofnature #getoutstayout #hikecalifornia #honornativeland #honortheland #livebravely #modernhiker #mypubliclands #optoutside #queerhikers #rei #sheexplores #thegreatoutchea #travelcalifornia #unlikelyhikers #whyihike #qtpoc #hikesonoma #wehikecalifornia
Horseback riding: 40% fear of falling off. 60% feeling sorry for the poor horse that's dragging my fat fabulous ass up the mountain. 100% better by having your best friend/soulmate encouraging you along the way... 🏇🙃🐎💛 . . . .#mountainlife #bionicbuglady #unlikelyhikers #outsidelands #solitude #nature #wild #optoutside #rockymountainhigh #hikingadventures #wildernessculture #adventure #colorado #getoutside #neverstopexploring #themountainsarecalling #wildwoman #wanderlust #horsingaround #fatgirlshiking #colorfulcolorado #usfs #mountains #allaboutadventures #cowboy #fatventuremag #mountainscape #takeahike #horsebackriding #wildwest
Since Darin had class for ski patrol today, Scarlett and I went on a girls hike! It was a quick 3.4 mile out and back on the Gay City Trail. The weather was perfect for hiking and we practically had the park to ourselves! #hikeitbaby #hikeitbaby30 #getyokidsoutside #ctforestandparkassociation #cfpa #fatgirlshiking #womenwhohike #hikelikeawoman #hike21 #52hikechallenge2018 #hikerbabesorg100 hike 20 #16weekspregnant

gorge view..it looks a bit like a trickle, but the rock walls are 70 ft high 🤷‍♀️ pretty cute compared to the gorge we saw in Colorado 🤣
Camp no. 3 Spicers Gap Main Range National Park This camp was the first ‘not quite right’ experience. I forgot a few vital pieces of equipment and had to drive an hour west to Warwick to get them. It was freezing and windy and I dropped my 🌙 cup in the drop toilet 👋🏼. I spent too much time on my phone and didn’t get to use my camera. I then cancelled the hike the next morning and just made my way home early. It’s not always going to be perfect. I wrote a pretty damn excellent list of gratitude though and that was damn fantastic. 🙏🏼 #mainrangenationalpark #girlswhohike #fatgirlshiking #hiking #ferreting #unlikelyhiker #getlost #mountain #forest #nationalpark #queensland #diversifythetrail #camping #campfire

I ❤❤ Fall so I had to usher the season in the best way I know how, HIKING! It felt so good to really stretch my legs and let the forest (and rain) surround me. We hiked through an open part of the #eaglecreekfire burn zone. It's sad to see the damage but hope is growing everywhere. Worst part of hiking in a burn zone? There's no underbrush so nowhere to pee! See where it says fastest at the end? That's me trying to get to a bathroom 😂 #pnw #hiking #fatgirlshiking #oregonexplored #columbiagorge #goals #weightlossjourney #keto #moveyourass #doesthishilliclimbedmakemyasslookbig

Hike 43/52 and mile 204.3/365: today I went for a 3.3 mile hike-walk-bushwhack at Towns Bluff/Bullard Creek WMA. The actual trails out here are short, well maintained, and well marked. The real adventure begins when you leave the hiking trails for the “foot travel invited” cut throughs and horse trails on the WMA land - and when you lose them completely and have to do the South Georgia equivalent of a rhodo crawl (aka briar crawl which is MUCH worse) to get back to the main road. • • • • • #hike #hiking #exploremore #adventureanywhere #makeyourownadventures #neverstopexploring #adventurelikeagirl #hikelikeagirl #georgiahikers #hikegeorgia #exploregeorgia #river #riverrat #muddywater #girlswhohike #sheexplores #chooseoutside #girlsonadventures #southgeorgia #fatgirlshiking #outdoorsforeveryBODY #altamaha #southgeorgia #altamahariver #foottravelonly #humanpoweredadventures
Happy #firstdayoffall ! We had a great time #hiking today. I'd forgotten how much I love hiking and how scared I am walking on wet rugged rocks whilst going steeply downhill. But with only a few tears, a lot of help from my awesome boyfriend, and a little bit of sweat, I made it! #trailsnotscales #valleyviewglades #fatgirlshiking #fallday #perfecttemperature #ilovethisman

Do something every day that breaks your heart. Even just a little bit. A sliver, a crack, a shudder, a thunder, a crashing-shattering-pain filled-roar. I promise you, you’ll be stronger with every beat afterwards. You’ll surprise yourself by how truly unbreakable you are. . . . Will you help diversify our public lands?

We spent the morning at St Govan’s Chapel. A tiny hermit cell built into the cliff’s edge. Legend has it Govan was attacked by Irish pirates and sought refuge in theses cliffs which magically opened up a cave for him. He stayed, living off the land, and the spring he used to wash was meant to cure illnesses. The spring is dry now. Go figure. 🙄 Some believe that “Govan” is a mutation of “Gawain,” a legendary knight from the court of King Arthur who was said to have receded into hermitic life in his final years. The chapel was built in the 13th century and is still standing to do this day. Mad isn’t it? As I was sitting in a chapel built in the 1200s in 2018, looking out the chapel window, wondering how much the view has changed, I got a sudden chill. Dougie started whimpering and I had the immediate urge to leave. Quickly. I reckon it was pirates... 👻🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 * * * * * * * * * #ghostadventures #ghosthunting #ghoststories #kingarthur #britishhistory #visitwales #explorewales #discovercymru #discoverwales #welshhistory #historybuff #history #traveluk #greatbritain #visitbritain #ukbestpics #discoverbritain #instabritain #girlswhohike #explorebritain #outdoorliving #outdoorwomen #fatgirlshiking #vanlife #vanlifeuk #roamtheplanet #wanderlust #earthpix
Farewell summer. This has been one of the most memorable. The summit of Mt. St. Helens. The Enchantments through hike. Countless hours on the trail in training. Lake life in Michigan. Camping.

Many people have different reasons for hiking, one of mine is the way hiking shifts my perspective. There are moments when I finally reach the top, out of breath and aching thinking there is no way I can take another step, and then I look up. Looking up towards the vast openness of nature, and suddenly all that was, all that could be disappears. I am left with an inexplicable sense of calm, peace, Nirvana, as if everything is complete, and I am exactly where I am supposed to be in this moment. || @andreas.adventures / Andrea
Hike #44 /52 Our first hike since our backpacking trip a few weeks ago. My friend & I hiked the Baskett Slough NWR. I gave myself a week to let my blisters heal, then I came down with a cold. My friend needed time for her foot to heal. So we chose an easy hike to test her foot out. Afterwards we went to Dallas and Independence to do some antique shopping. #52hikechallenge2018 #52hikechallenge #baskettslough #baskettsloughwildliferefuge #findyouractive #fatgirlshiking #flexitpink #getoutside #hikergirl #hikelikeagirl #hikeoregon #journeyto100 #oregonexplored #optoutside #oregon #pnw #pnwhiking #reiproject1440 #unlikelyhikers #weightlossjourney #womenwhohike
I hope you’ll decide sometimes to step in with both feet and trust yourself to stay balanced and immersed all at once.
It was so great to hit the trail today! Quick 3 miler with some hill climbing at the beginning. #hiking #pnw #fatgirlshiking #weightlossjourney #igotthis #goals #keto
Storm Ali and Storm Sebastian hitting Wales back to back wasn’t fun in the camper, but the heavy rain had made Henrhyd Falls fierce, powerful and wild. You can walk right behind the waterfall, it was wild, exhilarating and magnificent.

Hey happy Friday! This is me. Right after Gene and I reached the top of a hike, sweaty, greasy, sunburnt, cooling off against this cool ass looking rock. This is my favorite photo of me right now. Not super flattering or anything but I just really loved this moment. And I love that Gene took it of me and the fact that he likes this photo makes me like it even more. I also still have these wack tan lines. WEAR SUNSCREEN KIDS.
