Peppermint broke down on a gas run 2 days ago, one of the pressure plate springs is jammed and now the clutch won’t engage. Will be doing on-site interior work for a while before taking transmission out to fix the issue.
Day 3 of the Road Trip || Went back for round three at E C Manning Park and it did not disappoint. The hike was beautiful and we were the only ones around for miles. The North Cascades in the distance even made up for the bone chilling winds ⛺️ • • • • • • • • #mtnchicks #findyouradventure #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #amongthewild #inspireadventure #adventureenthusiast #likeamountaingirl #alltrails #rsroadtrip #globalcollective #besttravelphoto #roamfree #modernoutdoors #herpnwlife #allaboutadventures #campeveryday #upperleftusa #beautifulBC #wanderwashington #findyourpark #parkscanada #hiker #hikingdogsofinstagram #blondesexploremore #visualsoflife #ourdailyplanet
I've always had an interest in photography, but it got pretty serious once I started hiking more often. I found beauty in everything I saw, and I wanted to capture whatever it was in the best way. This photo was taken on our last day in Glacier National Park, probably around 7:30-8am. I could not believe what I was seeing--the clouds, the mountains, the trail, the COLORS of it all... What did I do? You guessed it--I captured it 😄📷✨ . . . . . . . . . . #optoutside #upperleftliving #thatpnwlife #pnwwonderland #wanderwashington #herpnwlife #womenwhohike #pnwhikerbabes #northwestisbest #exploremore #choosemountains #lifeoutdoors #neverstopexploring #mountaingirls #sheexplores #wildernessculture #wanderwashington #liveyouradventure #livelifeoutside #liveauthentic #forceofnature #andshesdopetoo #hikingadventures #sheadventures #radgirlslife #theoutbound #rei1440project #mountaineering #colors #nikon
Brandshley reunited once again and it feels so so right. Cheers to new adventures in Washington together where we’ll go camping, hike nice and fast, explore new lakes and mountains, and tote a surprisingly well-trained boxer along.

Fall hiking has officially arrived! Even though this is my favorite season to hike, I am still thinking back to these summer alpine nights #optoutside #alpinelakeswilderness
Thankful to be able to help my friend accomplish an emotionally difficult task the last few days, but it couldn’t have happened without some other incredible friends of mine who helped Pat with kiddos; picking up from school, watching for the day and taking them to AWANAS. It’s times like this that remind me how important it is to have a village. Also, my first hike in the North Cascades was 🙌🏼
of course the first day trip we take after settling in is to the Oregon coast 🌲💛 the ocean + rain was calling to us 🌧🌊

Sleep has not been my friend this week. I’ve been only getting a few hours a night. These past 2 months I’ve let my workouts slide. Sometimes only going to the gym once a week. I felt like crap when I got home from work tonight. All I wanted to do was sit and watch football but decided I needed to get to the gym. Ran a mile on the treadmill and worked on my core and I feel so much better!! Ready to have some dinner, watch football and go to bed. 👵🏼🧡🏃🏼‍♀️💪🏼 #september #runnergirl #whyihike #whyirun #takeitoutside #realwomenmove #sheexplores #takeitoutside #runwashington #optoutside #outdoorwomen #pnwwashington #pnwonderland #wanderwashington #runnersofinstagram #upperleft #rei1440project #herPNWlife #twentyeighteen #washington #getoutside #igwashington #jillsjourney #fitfam
There is pleasure in the pathless woods. There is rapture on the lonely shore. There is society where none intrudes. By the deep sea and music in its roar. I love not man the less. But nature more. 💚 Lord Byron @bliss_folk . . . . . . . . . #herpnwlife #mountainlife #pnwcollective #thatpnwlife #upperleftusa #pnwwonderland #cascadiaexplored #awakethesoul #nrthwst #visualsoflife #exploretocreate #wildernessculture #optoutside #roam #wander #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wanderfolk #mtrainier #mountains #moodygrams #forest #river #natureaddict #travel #beautifuldestinations #theoutbound #landscape #gameoftones
So after sitting at Les Schwab I wasn't sure if I should just go home or continue on. I wouldn't be able to hike as far with a late start, but that foolish talk didn't last long. I drove out to Hurricane Ridge again and drove on one of the scariest roads in Washington. Well, that's what Google says! After driving in Deer Park, I didn't feel scared at all. I mean you could accidentally kill yourself by admiring the views and all and drive off the cliff, but whenever another car came in the opposite direction I had good sense to take it slow. . . #pnw #optoutside #rei #pnwparadise #pnwroamers #reiemployee #pacificnorthwest #washingtonstate #onlyinwashington #stayandwander #olympicnationalpark #obstructionroad #herpnwlife #womenwhoexplore #sheisnotlost #sheexplores #welivetoexplore #findyourselfoutside #neverstopexploring #findyourpark #nps #npwest #adventureawaits #adventureculture #herwanderfullife #adventurethatislife #adventurenthusiast #adventurer #washingtonexplored #explorewashington
Love is the feeling we have for those we care deeply about and hold in high regard. It can be light as the hug we give a friend or heavy as the sacrifices we make for our children. It can be romantic, platonic, familial, fleeting, everlasting, conditional, unconditional, imbued with sorrow, stoked by sex, sullied by abuse, amplified by kindness, twisted by betrayal, deepened by time, darkened by difficulty, leavened by generosity, nourished by humor and “loaded with promises and commitments” that we may or may not want or keep. The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to tackle the motherf*cking sh*t out of it. | Cheryl Strayed
The world is so quiet when you're hanging out in a cabin, on a lake, in the woods. Does anyone else agree?

Why is it that when you make goals it’s months, maybe even years, of barely any progress on them, then a sudden deluge of EVERYTHING HAPPENING ALL AT ONCE. I realize this may come across as some sort of humble brag, but truthfully while I am excited, I am mostly feeling overwhelmed and battling a major case of imposter syndrome. So if at any point you thought I had it all together...trust me when I say that I don’t 😩 . Quick shout out to @paulinadao @its.chelski and my amazing boyfriend @briankeechang for dealing with all of my panicky “I AM NOT GOOD ENOUGH” text messages lately. Especially when you have given me advice and I ignored it completely while still panicking at you 😬😬😬 . . . . . #mtnbabes #upperleftusa #greatnorthcollective #outdoorwomen #livewashington #pnw #in2nature #roamtheplanet #greatoutdoors #herpnwlife #mtnchicks #adventureisoutthere #optoutside #rei1440project #alpinebabes #exploretocreate #mountaingirls #adventureanywhere #theoutbound #exploretocreate #wildernessculture #wanderwashington #wildernessbabes #neverstopexploring #likeamountaingirl #pnwdiscovered #beautifuldestinations #sheexplores #girlswhohike
Adventures with my mountain lion ⛰ 🦁 .. I'm really a dog person 😊 📷: gopro selfie from a cold and windy paddleboard on Green lake, (which is how he ended up in my jacket) at least we found a break in the rain!
Mountain poses, food cache glory and finding #narnia . Just your typical day on the #wonderlandtrail Day 5 & 6
I wish we had our own canoe so we could do this more often!! 🛶

There's something about being surrounded by the colour moss green in its natural state that soothes my worries and slows my heartbeat. BC is my favourite colour 💚

It’s the third week of school and I already miss carrying around this big, heavy, sweaty, dirty, cursed, and yet totally beloved hiking backpack instead. I’d swap one full of textbooks for it any day 💙
I’m not sure if I am more excited about the elephant pants from a Ugandan market or the African dirt... // Either way, my heart is longing for Africa. So for now, these sweet gifts @madijoones brought back from Uganda will have to do!

I don't know exactly what a prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass, how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields, which is what I have been doing all day. Tell me, what else should I have done? Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon? Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? || Mary Oliver • • • • • #maryoliver #wildandprecious #wildflowers #natgeolandscape #thatpnwlife #herpnwlife #pnwisbeautiful #instagood #socality #wildernessnation #wildernessculture #explorebc #naturephotography #adventurethatislife
Isn't it funny How a single tree Can change you entirely From the inside out 🌳
2 days until it's officially fall! Are you ready for moody spooky colder weather? At least for my fellow Washingtonians and PNW'ers. And a lot of other places of course lol but I know I have plenty of friends on here who don't really have prominent seasons where they live and they hate not having a significant weather change lol. I already miss perfect sunny weather but also happy to not be super hot in my house anymore 😅 Happy Thursday everyone! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #herpnwlife #hike #hiking #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #annettelake #nikon #washingtontrails #moody #spooky #forest #trees #magical #tbt #trees #wanderwashington
It's humpday, meaning we are halfway through the week and I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel aka the weekend lol! I normally hike in the early morning but we stopped here in the evening time after a roadtrip in June to La Push Beach and clearly it was the right call. I just love golden hour & when the light hits through the trees perfectly when you're roaming through the forest. My wedding venue has a lot of beautiful tall trees & I'm desperately hoping for the perfect lighting that day lol! I want sunlight lol! I love our engagement photos but it was definitely a moody grey PNW day so a contrast on the wedding day would be lovely, but who knows in June when it comes to Washington lol. 🤷 . . . . . . . . . . . #summer #capeflattery #goldenhour #light #forest #trees #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #landscape #washingtontrails #hike #hiking #glow #herpnwlife
Showcasing a little summer vibes before fall officially hits Saturday. I loved this short hike and the bright green & pink-like colors mixing together throughout the trail. There were great views of a few little lakes along the way and of course amazing views of Mt. Rainier at the peak and throughout the trail. I just love this national park so much. Crazy to think our colors will be turning very soon (and some trails already have!). Super excited to hike Maple Pass Loop & Blue Lake but can't decide if it will be this weekend or next. Maybe next weekend to make sure larches are closer to full swing. I get a little worried in October since snow is unpredictable & might cover up the fall foliage but would also love to do a light snow covered hike soon before it gets too crazy. If we don't go to the North Cascades this weekend I have a list of trails to chose from closer to home for this weekend's hike to get a teaser of beautiful fall colors already in bloom. Any of my friends in-state are always welcome to join, just dm me! Autumn is such a beautiful time of year! Please do yourself a favor and make sure to go on at least one fall colored hike and/or larch march before the season ends! . . . . . . . . . . . #summer #mtrainier #degepeak #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #landscape #mountains #washingtontrails #hike #hiking #northwestisbest #herpnwlife
Spent the weekend exploring the coast. 🖤
Life has been hectic lately... moving and the start of school has made it feel like it’s been forever since I’ve gotten out...which is probably why I so giddy for this weekend. Enchantments, here I come!
