I enjoyed a really nice solo hike for my birthday to the top of Granite Peak! Near the top I found myself scrambling up a narrow ridge made of huge boulders and figured that I must have gotten off trail. I went back down and when looking back toward the peak, noticed a woman peak out from behind a rock. I asked if I had gone the wrong way and with sheer confidence and seriousness in her eyes, she responded that this was the only way and that I could do it. I finally made it to the top where a couple sitting there congratulated me for taking the badass way up. “What? There’s another way?” I asked, to which they replied “well, yeah, we just took the trail.” Thanks, weird old confidence boosting nature lady, had you not been there I would’ve just done it the boring way. #granitepeak #washington #cascades #firetower
View from the fire tower. In 1909, the State of NH began to fund the building of fire towers on numerous peaks in the forest. By the start of WWII, there was a shortage of men; so women, known as WOOFS, Women Observers on the Forest, were trained to spot aircrafts and report potential issues #kearsargenorth #woofs #whitemountainnationalforest #firetower
No, you can not have this beer. Very few people can. #ipa #meenahgamountain #firetower
Faced a fear I knew I would have but never really tested. Heights. Climbed this thing all the way to the top today. Might have low key hyperventilated the whole time, but hey. I made it 😎 #heights #facingfears #firetower #scaredofheights #conqueringfears
Mount Beacon Fire Tower trail hike.
Spectacular mountain top sunsets... Reason #16 to camp on the Appalachian Trail.
Went for the leaves, left with the clouds..🌬 (zoom in for a really cute face)

Challenging 19 mile hike in the #UmatillaNationalForest yesterday! About 5500 foot elevation gain and we were beat after... but #views !! #OregonButte #firetower
Rolling into the weekend, looking for another fire tower to explore
No other place I'd rather watch the sunrise then a fire tower over looking the green mountains. #elmore #firetower #elmoremountain #vermont #lovermont #greenmountain #sunrise #vtpixels #vtphotog #vermontphotographer #cloudinversion
New Post Day Somehow I became the girl who’s obsessed with climbing fire towers. Why? Because I hate heights of course. And in order to grow, we need to force ourselves outside of our comfort zones. Today’s post is chock full of lessons I learned on my journey to courage, clarity, and confidence. Check it out here hollyscherer.com/confidence and as always, my most recent link can be found in my bio @hollyscherer. . . . #courageclarityconfidence #hollygoeswild #firetower #fearifheights #getuncomfortable #courage #bebrave #clarity #confidence #empowerment #coach #bedecisive #takeaction #loveyourself #enjoythejourney #smile #youareenough #mnstateparks #justaddnature #itascastatepark #mississippiqueen
Climbing to the top to get those #views .... oh, wait.
Arrived in Denver late, drove an hour and a half, hiked one mile up Squaw Mountain, after dark, elevation 11,486, in 40° weather, carrying 45 pounds, including camera equipment to arrive at the most amazing site and to sleep in the Squaw Mountain Fire Tower with these most beautiful stars. #altitudesucks #hiking #squawmountain #squawmountainfirelookout #nighthiking #igersdenver #hikingafterdark #igerscolorado #outdooradventures #startrails #nightsky #nightphotography #astrophotography #starphotography #firetower #getoutside #stars #rockymountains #therockies
I started a little fire while I was up there on the top of this mountain. Then I took all my worries and cares, squished them right into a ball and tossed them all into the open flame. Yup, I burned them right up into ash. Scooped up whatever embers hadn't blown away on the breeze and scattered it all right into a small hole that I had dug by the blaze. Covered that shit up, turned around and walked right away. I didn't look back until I took this photo. .. Just kidding, that would have scarred the mountaintop for the next visitors. . #leavenotrace .. . . .. #getoutmor #adirondacks #adk #firetower #hikeny #scenicny #visitadks #pureadk #liveyouradventure #fuelyouradventure #catchthehigh
Hills yesterday in preparation for more hills this weekend. — The Hokies will train this weekend in Blowing Rock, NC, and cap the weekend with the traditional Fire Tower climb.
What I love most about this crazy life is the adventure of it 💕 #hiking #firetower #mountain #heiscute #positivevibes #cantstopsmiling #sunset
I was up at Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge this month to rocket net ducks for pre hunting season waterfowl banding! It was really great to get out to another refuge and focus on catching ducks for a week straight. We were catching easily over 150 ducks each time, so I don't have any photos of the duck catches or rocket nets, but enjoy these photos of the landscape instead. This is a really cool area of Minnesota, with wetlands, aspen parkland, forest, and prairie grasslands all converging on each other. It also has black spruce tamarack bogs designated as wilderness. #publiclands #naturalresources #nature #midwest #minnesota #fieldwork #firetower #biology #ornithology #biologist #biotech #nationalwildliferefuge #agassiz #wetlands #wetland #praire #forest #grassland

Hikes are a super great way to get out into nature, especially when you get lost. 🙊🙈 Luckily I met a nice couple at the fire tower, who not only encouraged me to climb the tower, but also got lost when and where I was. 😂#ferncliffforest #sunset #sunset_pics #hudsonvalley #hudsonriver #kingstonny #eveninghike #neaturewalk #firetower #hiking #hikesolo #hikeny #adirondacks #iloveny #optoutside #notallthosewhowanderarelost #idefinitelywas
Going through old pics • This was a special day back in November~ one of my FAVORITE hikes and one of my Most Loved towers thus far. • Waking up at 4am to make the long drive, I met up with a sweet friend at a “hole in the wall” gas station outside of Johnson City, Tennessee~one of those gas stations that serves breakfast you probably shouldn’t eat~ but I indulged in an egg and cheese biscuit anyway. And I have to give it to the gas station~ that was one tasty biscuit! And they had a damn good selection of craft brews. We grabbed a 4 pack and carpooled to the trailhead. ~spending the next couple of hours ascending towards this breathtaking 1937 structure. {just look at it!!!} • We had the lookout all to ourselves; we scarfed our packed lunches and sipped our barely cold brews in the cabin before soaking in the sunshine and mountainous views from the 360 catwalk. I didn’t want to leave. ✨ It was A perfect day spent with one of my favorite humans; I love you, Em 💛 • ...:...:...:..:...:...:...:...:...:...:...:...:...:...:... #FireTower #TowerChasing #LookoutTower #TowerBabe #HikerLife #OptOutside

She climbed to the top of the fire tower just fine but I got nervous for her coming down so I decided to carry her.... I almost fell.😂 next time I'll let her do it on her own. #overprotective #worrywort #usethehandrail #sackofpotatoes #firetower #climbingdog #toughdog #nhdog #strathamhillpark #instagramdogs #shecandoit #exploreeverything #adventuredog ##blackdogsofinstagram #adventure #mybestfriendisadog

Joanna Bald Fire Tower, NC: We made the long and lonely trip up a winding dirt road through Tantham Gap, where a portion of the Trail of Tears once ran. Though our hike wasn't a long one, we enjoyed exploring the area and taking in the views while Bruna had a blast flushing birds along the way! . . . . #joannabald #tanthamgap #jewelweed #explore #nature #appalachianmountains #hikinglife #getoutdoors #firetower #hike #firetowerchallenge #exploreNC #westernNC #NCoutdoors #northcarolina #greatoutdoors #wnc #outdooradventure #exploremore #hikemoreworryless #hikinglife #adventuretime #naturelover #mountainlover #mountains #neature #coupleswhohike #ncmountains #wncmountains

Accompanied by silence and a weathered fire tower, you're left only with your thoughts and admiration of the wilderness. So lucky are we to be able to explore and appreciate this world around us. . . . . . . . . #pnw #firetower #hike #hiking #oregon #explore #themountainsarecalling #naturephotography #canon #wilderness #amaturephotography #trail #meditation #silence #solitude #lucky #thankful #getoutside #igdaily #nature #dslr #clouds #mountains
