This weekend we had women who hike join us on the trail all over the US and Canada! We started out the weekend doing some trail building in New Jersey with @nynjtc , hiked along streams and tree lined trails in Indiana, summited a tough mountain climb in Utah, hiked to waterfalls in British Columbia and then wrapped up the weekend with an additional group hike in Indiana where we had women of all ages join us on the trail. WWH Ambassador @offtoseetheview led her first group hikes this weekend in Indiana and she was honest when she said she was a little unsure of how the group would come together for the first time: “Hiking with women you've never met before or only know a little can be intimidating, but I knew immediately as we begun the trail and I started hearing the women talking ‘hiker’s speak’ that it was gonna be a great day. Thank you to those of you who joined me and for making those fears I had melt away. Thanks to all of you this weekend energized me and left me full of joy.“ If you’re someone looking for a hiking buddy, you’ll surely find one at any of our group hikes happening near you. We host our own hikes all over the US and now Canada, and next month we’ll have our first group hike in the UK. You can also use our Facebook Groups to find women who hike #womenwhohike near you any day of the week! Visit our website, join a group and become a member #wwhmember to receive emails on all of our upcoming group hikes.
“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.” -John Muir, Our National Parks (1901) • • • • • #adventure #backpacking #borninthemountains #california #camping #easternsierra #explore #findyourpark #findyourtrail #goldentroutwilderness #highsierra #homeiswhereyoustakeit #inyonationalforest #johnmuir #landscape #lonepine #meadow #mountains #nature #neverstopexploring #optoutside #owntheweekend #rei #shotoniphone #sierra #sierranevada #socalhiker #mountainstream #tularecounty
Throwback to this cold windy night. Who else wants to get out of this humidity?? . . . . . #hikinglove #hikingseason #hikingcouple #hikingtherapy #findyourtrail
Water, water everywhere!! Kanarra Falls Trail is chock full of beautiful waterfalls 🌊 They flowed around giant boulders, others fell so far we had to scale rickety ladders to continue upstream, and some formed 90 degree angles. And of course I couldn't help but drool over the elegent cross bedding in the tall canyon walls. What a beautiful place to explore ❤ . . . #kanarravillefalls #kanarraville #utah #findyourtrail #blmutah #slotcanyonselfie #sundayfunday #riverwalk #waterfall #slotcanyon

Ed entertaining me while he was doing a little trail maintenance.
So I did a Thing today. . The "Thing" was taking a typical summit-sign photo. 😂 There'll be more, so practice makes perfect. . Ontario Peak ⛰ Elevation: 8,693 ft. Distance: 14.7 miles (??) SoCal Six-Pack Peak 3/6 (I think...all the fires have screwed my count)
Proof that you CAN find awesome people to hike with via instagram right here. Had an awesome time doing the Continental Divide Trail today with @g.i._jenna and her husband Justin. I was a little nervous after they let me pick the hike and we spent the first hour stuck in mist, 40 degree temps, and 50 mph winds. But fortunately conditions improved right as we approached the payoff views and vindicated my choice. 😎
All the birds have flown up and gone; a lonely cloud floats leisurely by. We never tire of looking at each other, only the mountain and I. - Li Po. 🏔 Waiting for the smoke to clear so I can have another staring contest with a mountain! Be careful out there adventures! Always practice #leavenotrace so that we can forever have views like this ❤️ Treat Mother Nature with kindness #findyourtrail #beauty #mountains #epic #picoftheday #wild #childofwild #wilderness #wildernessnation #choosemountains #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #blonde #outdoorgirl #outdoors #wanderlust #pnw #pnwonderland #hike #trail #explore #exploremore #canada
Be the person who cares. Be the person who makes the effort, the person who loves without hesitation. Be the person who bares it all, the person who never shies away from the depth of their feeling, or the intensity of their hope. Be the person who believes — in the softness of the world, in the goodness of other people, in the beauty of being open and untethered and trusting. Be the person who takes the chance, who refuses to hide. Be the person who makes people feel seen, the person who shows up. Trust me when I say — be the person who cares. Because the world doesn’t need more carelessness, any more disregard; because there is nothing stronger than someone who continues to stay soft in a world that hasn’t always been kind to them. || by Bianca Sparacino || . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #utahhiking #utahhikes #utahhiker #girlsthathike #werutah #outdoorwomen #exploreutah #womenwhoexplore #exploreyourbackyard #hikemoreworryless #hikersofinstagram #hikerlife #hikingwithfriends #hikerslife #hikelikeagirl #hikingwithkids #hikingaddict #hikemore #hikelife #hikingtrip #hikes #gohiking #hikrlife #findyourtrail #whiihike #optoutside #thegreatoutdoors #hikingadventures #instahike #mtnchicks
Picked out this spot for when the moon set and the Milky Way would be visible only to be greeted with a very cold rain. Luckily the lingering fog would provide some nice drama for sunrise. . . . . . . #coloradotography #earthoutdoors #findyourtrail #findyourpark #colorado #rei #getoutside #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #colorado #hiking #optoutside #mountains #rockymountains #nature #rockies #rockiemountains #outdoors #sunrise #backpacking #alpine #alpinelake #co14ers #colorado14ers #14er

How do trails get built? One rock at a time, and with plenty of volunteers! #giveback #pacificcresttrail #mykindofvacation
Heavy is the head that wears the crown, the Triple Crown that is. - Triple Crown in the thru-hiking world means you completed thru-hiking the PCT, AT and the CDT. I’m no where near that accomplishment. I’m still trying to finish my first PCT hike. - It sure was fun trying on the Triple Crown yesterday, even though it clearly didn’t fit my head and it was super heavy. - Maybe one day I’ll wear the crown for real? 🤔 📷: @chuden12 . . . . . #pct2018 #PacificCrestTrail #P3Hikers #pct1968 #FindYourTrail #thruhike #hiking #HikingAdventures #TakeAHike #HikeMore #HikingFun #HikerTrash #Dirtbag #GoOutside #OptOutside #ChasingMyDreams #WomenWhoHike #WomenWhoExplore #werehikers #SheExplores #TrailLife #TeamLagger #herPNWlife #pnwoutdoorwomen #SalomonOdysseyPro #SalomonSquad #TimeToPlay #Osprey #OspreyPacks #pctdays

Yesterday we tackled Gothic Basin, which is the hardest hike I've done so far. Now to decide if we want to do it again... with full packs. #everydayadventures #optoutside #pnwonderland #findyourtrail
Smokey views in Glacier all week, but we were lucky enough to still get out and put some miles in. Looking forward to coming back and seeing the park in all its smoke free glory ⛰ ☀️ ♥️ • • #vanlife #nationalparks #findyourpark #parksproject #exploremore #glaciernps #glacier #grinnellglacier #hikingmontana #mountains #findyourtrail #vantasticlife #nationalparkphotography #forestfires #getoutside

And then there were two (again). # After two days in Cascade Locks, seeing hikers I haven't seen since before the Sierra, it's time to head back north. Time to return to our trail family of two. For a while now I've been saying I don't really have a trail family, at least not in the way I thought my trail family would look when I was dreaming about the PCT in the months and years before I started the trail. But Starman has been the best trail family I could have asked for, and this hike would be all the lesser without him. #BridgeoftheGods #TrailFamily #PCT #PCT2018 #ThruHike #Washington #PNWonderland #NoBo #PCTig #P3Hikers #PCT1968 #FindYourTrail #hiking #WithGuthook#PacificCrestTrail #SheExplores @pctassociation@ospreypacks@salomon
Here we are, at the bridge of the gods. Oregon and California completed. Washington will try to break me, the fires, smoke and the big climbs. With the knowing that the last stretch to the border is closed due to fire, I wanted to quit, wanted to give up. But the trail is not about the destination, it's about the journey and discovering how strong I am in the face of adversity. So I press on, giving it my all for as long as I can. #PCT1968 #pct2018 #ospreypacks #pctig #salomon #PacificCrestTrail #pct #FindYourTrail #P3Hikers #PCTA #REI #trailingadventures #trekthepct #rei1140project #wanderlust #optoutside #naturporn #takeahike #thetrek #thruhike #zpacks #natgeo #letsgoforawalk #trailchat #bpmag #takemebackpacking #bpgoals2018 #NationalParkGeek #exped @pctassociation   @ospreypacks @salomon
I’ve had my nose in a Fundamentals of Nursing textbook all weekend, but I’ve been dreaming of adventures. Who did something epic this weekend? I want to hear about it.

After we crossed this, we realized there was a side trail around the log. Oh well... #llbeanatrelay #findyourtrail #sponsored #beanoutsider #vermont
Our biggest fundraiser of the year is TICKETS Fore CHARITY. Purchase your Albertsons Boise Open tickets if you haven’t already and they’ll match it 100%. It’s like free money for the trail. Even if you don’t plan on attending the tournament it’s a win-win for the Weiser River Trail.

The other day I saw my first bit of Bear Grass, I yelled with excitement "oh yay Bear Grass!!!!" Only the trees were there to hear my joy. This was just another sign I'm getting closer to Glacier. #thetrek @thetrek.co #cdt #continentaldividetrail #cdt2018 #triplecrown #embracethebrutality #bravetheCDT #findyourtrail #thruhike #nobo #hikertrash #hiking @waymarkgearco #waymarkgearco #heavydutyultralight #ultralight #doyouevenUL #backpacking #nomeatathlete #gaintheridge #optoutside #getoutside #liveoutside

So I did this really cool thing today. I got to speak on a panel at @pctdays with three other P3 @pctassociation Hikers. We got to answer questions about our thru-hike. It was so much fun! - What question(s) do you have about the PCT or hiking the PCT?

Days 120-122: this is me, trying to take pictures of myself on smoke covered peaks. I realized that I have very few pictures of myself from this trail and wanted some that weren’t selfies. What can I say...I tried.
Pano from Lake Dorothy yesterday. The wildflowers are gone and the long view was obscured by the smoke but the hike up to Arapaho Pass and Lake Dorothy was still beautiful. #lakedorothy #arapahopasstrail #arapahopass #fourthofjulytrailhead #indianpeakswilderness #colorado #eldora #panorama
