// The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness • Dalai Lama // As we shift into this Full Moon + Thanksgiving week of gratitude and abundance, I’d like to share with all of you a few of the people, places, and things that make my heart full. 💚 I’d love for you to play along! Gratitude grows when we share it ☺️ Share your gratitude stories this week with #lunarasagratitude 🙏🏼 Day 1: I am deeply grateful to live in such a lush, vibrant place that keeps me grounded and connected with nature. Spending time in the outdoors is a vital part of my self care, and I feel so lucky to have all of this stunning #pnwonderland in my backyard. 🙌🏼🏔 Here are a few shots from yesterday’s hike to Heather Lake with my favorite trail buddies. . . . #lunarasagratitude #lunarliving #shinrinyoku #forestbathing #heatherlake #sundayfunday #hikewashington #optoutside #hikingyogi #natureismyyoga #attitudeofgratitude #dailygratitude

That water. That sky. That view. That moment when the rain stops for those 10 mins on your hike in the #PNW . #TakeMeBack #moodnation . #pnwhiking #diablolake #rosslake #northcascades
Another weekend, another camera dropped in a river. Which has little to do with this picture, but still.

Today was one of those days that you can’t conjure up. It’s not something that can be forced or curated; it needs to happen organically. Well, we let the forces of nature work their magic and, boy did it pay off!

Mount Adams in all her glory 🙌🏻
Such a beautiful place to be. Recently received some life changing news regarding my spine that will impact my life as a hiker. Spent a little extra time at the lookout tower yesterday reflecting on everything.... thinking about the medical conditions I have been hit in the face with from the time i was 4. And how they will never stop me! How incredibly far I have come. Conquering trails and climbing heights I never thought I could do. This truly is a beautiful place to be #mountrainier #striveforgreatness #optoutside #hikewashington #achievementhunter #washingtonhikersandclimbers #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored #naturephotography #world_shotz #adventure #adventurelover #getoutthere #thenwadventure #exploremore

Magical weekend camping in a frozen wonderland.
Since it’s Thanksgiving week, I’m just going to go ahead and say it: Turkey is overrated AF.
Ice caves are pretty rad. I think I slipped on the boardwalk about every 5 steps, so the picture probably isn’t an accurate representation.. Mieko found her true climate, laid down in protest several times on the walk back and needed treat bribery. #adventureswithmieko #hikewashington #dogswhohike #akitasofinstagram #akita #naturerules
"Stump up the jam."
Are you ready for the Holidays? We are running a little behind on our meal planning here, but are endeavouring to focus on the meaning of Thanksgiving to remove any self-imposed stress that can come with big days like this. How are you planning to stay thankful this Thursday? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On this #mountaincrushmonday Mt. Rainier is getting into the spirit of the season. Winter sights like freezing lakes and snow are in the Mountains. Come out and visit soon. We've been enjoying such beautiful weather! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ps. Our "snappy" sale is still in effect until Wednesday. Save up to 40% on a 2018 booking! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many thanks to @ehajboss for the 📷.

With only 2 weeks left in the quarter, schoolwork is starting to pile, opportunities to spend time with friends and family grow and my biggest work event of the year was just completed. This month has been among the most challenging; there is so much I want to do and only slivers of time to do it all in. Luckily, spending some time catching up and re-calibrating is making it all a little more manageable, even if it means half of my weekends for the foreseeable future will be at home. This winter space will be there when the last term paper is turned in and I will let the cold mountain air fill my lungs and empty my brain. The day can't come soon enough. . . . . . . . . #celebratediscomfort #type2fun #mountainclimbing #mountainclimber #mountaineer #roamtheearth #mountainman #alpine #mountainadventures #gearforgood #highaltitude #alpineclimbing #themountainsarecalling #choosemountains #outdoorsdventures #venturebeyond #peaks #stayandwander #alphacollective #goatworthy #throughthepines #ourpnw #hikehappy #hikewashington #liveclimbrepeat #likeamountaingirl #werehikers
“It had nothing to do with gear or footwear or the backpacking fads or philosophies of any particular era or even with getting from point A to point B. It had to do with how it felt to be in the wild. With what it was like to walk for miles with no reason other than to witness the accumulation of trees and meadows, mountains and deserts, streams and rocks, rivers and grasses, sunrises and sunsets. The experience was powerful and fundamental. It seemed to me that it had always felt like this to be a human in the wild, and as long as the wild existed it would always feel this way.” —Cheryl Strayed 📷 @emmeruth #mountsainthelens #msh #mountrainier #washington #pnw #pnwonderland #pacificnorthwest #upperleftusa #hikewashington #hikepnw #hike #hiking #womenwhohike #mountains #mountainwanderer #wanderlust #wandermore #wandering #leaveherwild #wildatheart #keepitwild #staywild #nature #choosenature #getoutside #optoutside #travel #adventure #explore #beginagain

So, this happened...
I love places like this, they provide the perfect escape from the chaos of the world. When my head and my heart get overwhelmed I always find that walking through forests and admiring the beauty of mountains puts our lives into perspectives. Nothing is too big to overcome and in reality our problems can all be solved as long as we have the courage to face them. Where do you go to find your peace? . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #mountains #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #wanderwashington #pnwphotographer
So when I say I’m behind on photos, I mean I’m super behind! I got to hike with this wonderful human a few weeks ago ( and this weekends as well) and I’m so greatful for all the fun adventure @sarina_clark organizes.
“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just have to breath, trust, let go, and see what happens.” -Mandy Hale ——————————————————————— I’m always try to remind myself that not everything is (or has to be) in my control, and that some of the best times come from spontaneously saying yes to adventure. You might not know what’s in store, but it could be views like this! 🌙 #sheisnotlost #pnwonderland #shotoniphone #snowlake #snoqualmiepass #washingtonexplored #snowhiking
Frozen beauty
The beaches in Washington are unlike any I’ve ever seen! With steep cliffs dropping off to sandy beaches filled with driftwood and decorated with numerous haystacks, it’s quite a sight to see. If you ever have the chance to visit WA, you must check out the beaches on the Olympic Peninsula ✌🏼 . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #optoutside #rei1440project #outdooradventures #adventureisoutthere #getoutstayout #keepitwild #earthfocus #earthpix #visualambassadors #hikewashington #upperleftusa #pnwmoods #stayandwander #travel #travelgram #travelstoke #wanderlust #washingtonexplored #cascadiaexplored #naturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring #wanderwashington #pnwphotographer #beautifuldestinations
