Ironically, I had never done a first day hike until now — to Heybrook Lookout’s namesake ridge and 89 steps to the viewing platform. #cascades #evergreenstate #firelookout #firstdayhike #happynewyear #heybrooklookout #hike #pacificnorthwest #trail #washingtontrails

So many beautiful pictures from 2017 to choose from! Snowshoeing, frozen falls, Hawaii, Oahu, fish traps, tide pools, GIS certificates, solar eclipse, meteor showers, aurora searching, firelookouts, along with numerous trips to the Olympics, and Mt. Rainier. I'm so happy you were there with me for all the random adventures. Looking forward to 2018 with this cutie. So here is a pic that I feel perfectly captures our silliness. 💕 Happy new year to my love, family, and friends. 🎉
Among the tree tops🌲 The sun is warm this weekend, and seemingly more intense up at the treehouse 🏡 #firelookout I wish us all more Peace and Love in 2018 🎆
Ok but being serious tho we also found a really old fire look out and the doors were locked but look what we found inside⚡#firelookout
Thanks for all of your support this year, friends! If Bowen starts napping more, maybe I’ll get to make some art again 😂 But really 🙃. #bestnine2017 #bestnine #becreative #bebrave #art #blockprint #bodysuit #onesie #design #maternityphotography #illustration #nursery #baby #babyshower #whale #bear #tree #mountain #elk #firelookout #MtHood #Oregon

*one week later* hey it's sun, you up? 5:47am
Still reminiscing about the lookout... though my bed is a bit more comfy than a hammock! This is one of my favorite photos of my brother.
Almost there... literally the sketchiest part #lavabutte #firelookout #firetower #summit #dayhike #exploregon
My love for fire lookouts is becoming obsessive! #firetower #firelookout
I'm smiling because the way out of the lookout is just a tad easier- almost all the weight is off the sleds and the road is all downhill!
This trip to the lookout was my favorite!
✨27 laps around the sun✨
It's the very last #firelookoutfriday of 2017!!! This year I reaffirmed my little quest to visit all 93 of Washington State's standing fire lookouts. Since July I've tallied 80 miles of hiking, 3,700 driving miles, and nearly 25k of vertical to visit 24 new lookouts. Jake dog knocked off 15 of those with me and my new total stands at 36 with 57 left to go, whew!! I really hoped to hit 50 by year-end but weather has made access challenging, so next year it's game on!!! . One of my favorite moments this year was visiting Park Butte lookout with my folks, who flew up from California just to bag 4 lookouts with me! Baker was shrouded in clouds all day until we reached the top and she gave us a killer show! 🙏🏻😱What a fun year it's been!! Cheers to the upcoming new year everyone!! 🎉🥂 . . . . #firelookout #pnw #pnwonderland #back40hikes #seekthetrails #optoutside #ourpnw #wildher #radgirlslife #mtnchicks #sheadventures #adventuretime #wildernessculture #choosemountains #bestmountainartists #cascadiaexplored #discoverearth #wanderwashington #igwashington #komoLOZ #wearethewild #washingtontrails #exploremore #girlgetoutside #ourwild #upperleftusa #thegreatoutdoors #thehikemovement #northwestisbest
2017 has been a great year for many reasons. I was able to accomplish a lot this year and am looking forward to big things in 2018. Looking back on the last year I thought I would post five of my favorite memories from the outdoors from 2017. So here is #5 : @taylor_swn and I made an impromptu trip to the Mt. Pilchuck fire lookout on an October Sunday evening to spend the night. It was rainy and gloomy all day but the forecast called for a clearing late in the day so we decided to make the hike up to the lookout. We were stuck in a cloud when we arrived at the lookout and after a while it appeared that the clouds were not going dissipate. But just as the sun was getting ready to set, the clouds suddenly dropped and cleared on the horizon and we were treated to one of the best sunsets I have ever seen. The cool autumn air was so clear that we could see virtually all of the Puget Sound to the west. It was one of my favorite nights of the year.
Sometimes you just need to snowshoe to the middle of nowhere and totally unplug with your loved ones for a few days. Here's our reward after snowshoeing uphill for a couple hours with all our belongings on our backs.
True elation. I climbed 53 meters up a very very steep Karri tree - Gloucester Tree. It's so tall that in the treetops you can no longer see the ground. . It really was quite the nerve challenging climb. A spiral of steel pegs, but nothing preventing you from falling backwards, and no harness. A complete free climb holding your life in your own hands. It makes my hands sweat just thinking of it. . FACT: The Gloucester Tree with its steel pegged "ladder" was designed to act as a fire-lookout tree. . #tree #treeclimbing #monkey #twobananaday #elation #overcomer #saynotofear #risky #steep #challenge #karritree #gloucestertree #firelookout #ladder #healthandsafety ? #thighburn #unexpected #exercise #adrenaline
Flashback to this trip and 90ft towers I wouldn't climb. Mountains, yes. Firelookout swaying in the wind, not so much. 😂 #fbf #illwaitinthecar #afraidofheights #thatview #epictrip #firelookout #justwander #SeekAdventure #livingmyPNWlife
Stark Mountain. ⛰ I love how simple this looks ... but how much detail went in to making it. Never have I ever painted that many individual trees! 🌲🌲 #starkmountain #montana #firelookout #xmascommission #thearthangup
It seems fitting that before I leave Oregon in a few days, I #TBT to my last adventure before I moved away 6 months ago, an overnight hike to #MtPilchuck #FireLookout . > Full disclosure, we got caught in traffic and nearly got lost in the park when it got dark and we lost the trail.. But we made it, and the rewards were worth it, don't you agree? 😍💯🔥 > Blog: Likenowhereivebeen.blogspot.com SC: Gnut > #Mountain #Pilchuck #Hike #Backpack #Backpacking #Camping #FireLookout #Washington #Exploregonian #Adventure #GetLost #Sunrise #Sunset #Sunsomething #PNWonderland
This has got to be one of the tallest fire towers.

Sunset overlooking Lake Arrowhead from Butler Peak lookout. We got there at the perfect time of day. The colors seem to swirl in the sky. Sometimes the expression of soul is thru the sky #lakearrowhead #sunsetshot #sanbernadinomountains #firelookout #bigbear #soulsky
The snow is setting in here in #SoutheastMontana . It’s getting cold. We listen to the wind whistle through the cracks of this old building covered in windows. The propane lights burn a nice yellow hue as the propane heater glows red in the corner. The only thing to do is sit here and enjoy each other, enjoy the time. I couldn’t ask for anything more. • • • • • • • • #montana #montanamoment #mtbigskyseries #firelookout #snowstorm #snow #winter #winterwonderland #MT #406 #canon #teamcanon #canon5dmarkiv #5dmarkiv #happyholidays #nowhereidratherbe

We made it within 8 miles of the Billy Bob sno-park yesterday, but conditions looked ominous, so decided to turn back. FR44 had about 2ft of snow and we went about 3 miles before turning back. Some day we will get to 5 mike lookout... #hondacrosstour #firelookout #mthoodnationalforest #chinesefoodforxmasinstead
I couldn’t make it back to Ohio this Christmas, but I found my holiday spirit in a lookout tower above Lake Tahoe. Footsteps in soft snow and the sound of pine needles greeting the breeze made for the best Christmas carols I’ve ever heard🎄❄️☃️ . . . . . . . #christmas #merrychristmas #santa #whitechristmas #laketahoe #snow #california #findyourpark #keepitpublic #publiclands #rei1440project #optoutside #holidays #mountains #firelookout
Would it be nice to go hiking and reward yourself with some tea
Something about snapping pictures that really relives my stress 📸 PC: @tiburonrgb
When you tell your dad you have 4 hikes left he'll make sure you're up before the sun when it's 7 degrees outside.

Choosing happiness - while this may be treacherous, difficult, impossible, or inappropriate to do for oneself, therein lays the beautiful opportunity to choose happiness for another. Purchase someone else’s coffee to their surprise, do a chore that isn’t normally “yours”, smile at a stranger, pay for someone’s public transport, cook someone a nice meal, paint their toenails, give them a foot rub, etc. through this giving of happiness, you might even experience a spark of your own authentic joy - and happiness has therefore - chosen you. #likeamountaingirl #mtnchicks #mountaingirls #mountainlovers #firelookout #cascadiaexplored #alpinebabes #wildernessbabes #womenwhoexplore #sheexplores #takemoreadventures #exploreoregon #oregonexplored #womenwhohike #intheclouds #radgirlscollective #radgirlslife #pnwonderland #thenwadventure #pnwcollective #pnwoutdoorwomen #pnwdiscovered #trailsisters #herpnwlife #youroregon

Annual Fire Lookout reservation for 2018... ✔️Although there’s only a handful available to rent in Oregon, @camillar89 and I have made it our goal to try and stay at each one.

Actively used fire lookout in Sequoia National Forest. These lookouts are still manned during the fire season in this area by a very devoted person! #firelookout #sequoianationalpark #baldmountain #adventure #exploremore #overlanding #offroad #getoutside #outdoors
This nice lady and her dog spend the entire fire season at this lookout. Supplies are brought by a packer and a string of mules when needed. Several weeks can go by without seeing anybody! #bobmarshallwilderness #beartop #fire #firelookout #publicland #forestservice #montana #dog #scenic #mountains #gh4
Sierra Buttes Sunset 👣 _ Took this selfie as I turned around to make my descent (and catch up to my hiking group). I'm smiling, but I was a little worried realizing I'd put myself in a bad spot (icy slopes and darkness don't make for safe travels). _ #lessonlearned ✔️ _ #sierrabuttes #firelookout #sunset #pct #lakesbasin #sardinelakes #tahoenationalforest #california #hiking #hikingadventures #ego #dontbestupid
Mesa Verde Collection no. 6 At 8,572 feet, Park Point Lookout in Mesa Verde has views spanning four states adding breathtaking beauty to fire detection. #firelookout #mesaverde #fourcorners #explorecolorado
Gloucester tree. Pictures don’t to this ancient giant any justice. 53m tall, 7.3m around. A remarkable structure - and one piece of wood that should stay living - although would be some amazing looking table-tops in there somewhere! 😂 #karri #karriforest #wa #madeinwa #forests #forester #watimber #woods #forestfire #firelookout #climb #treeclimbers
Can winter come a little closer to home now? White Christmas please! ❄️❄️❄️
