This is the type of holiday hoodrat shit I was hoping to see in LA. #HoodRatHiking
Log walker 🍂
Here’s something from a quick Thanksgiving jaunt we took while in MT last month. A storm was rolling in, and those peaks in the background were disappearing fast.
Bears. Beats. Battlestar Galactica. #HoodRatHiking
Taipei Day 165 Of some of the top things that I am incredibly thankful for here in Taiwan, it’s the friendships I have with amazing people who encourage me everyday, who are there to support me, and are there to love on me. I couldn’t imagine living here without these friendships. 📷: 11.10.18
Mauna Kea is the highest point in Hawaii. It is also considered the world’s tallest mountain if measured from its base on the ocean floor. The steep grade of volcanic stones along with the thin air at altitude makes this trek a challenge. The 6-mile hike takes about 6 hours. . Follow - @hikeunknown 👈
New DIPA from @indiebrewco seemed to be the favorite amongst the group during our last Baldy trek! Thanks @bonelessbrigade for allowing us to try this sweet nectar! @crushquest @beerhikechill @socaltravels #summitbeer #pushforthepeak #trvrsapparel #bagginpeaksandhavindrinks
A co-worker of mine was asking each of us, “what is one thing that most people don’t know about you?” It took me a couple of days to think about it, & I realized that not many people know that I’m a National Park volunteer. Not even a lot of my family members know that fact about me. Aside from the nursing gigs on my resume, adding National Park volunteer onto my resume is something i’ve always been really proud of. Most of the volunteering involves trail restoration, cleaning up trails, answering questions at the NP’s, sometimes leading hikes with the rangers if they need help, or aiding in search and rescue if the situation arises. My love for the NP’s runs deep to the core. Ya, I wanna see all current 59 parks across the country, ya I grew up loving hiking & camping…but I’m also really about protecting & preserving our parks so that future generations can enjoy it as well. If you ever see me at Pinnacles (which is probably the next NP I’d volunteer at), come and say hi! 🖤🌲🏞 // #nps #hike #nationalparkservice #modernhiker #exploring #findyourpark #goparks #rei1440project #hiking #gopark #adventure #nationalparks #advocate #52hikechallenge #volunteer

Her mountains did not break her. Instead they only shaped her, and gave her an all new hope to see she is stronger than she ever thought she’d be @morganharpernichols 🏔 missing the wild ✨ #lifeofadventure #outdoorwomen #johnmuirwilderness #mtwhitney #alabamahills #theoutbound #keepitwild #wildernessculture #sheexplores #andshesdopetoo #goatworthy #sleepinthedirt #modernhiker #idhikethat
Our community has been through A LOT in the last month. I wanted to create something that would convey a message of hope going into the holiday season. . So, over last week, I took my Charlie Brown Christmas Tree and my camera and marched up the charred hills near my house. This is from the hills above #triunfoymca , west of Lindero Canyon. . I took these photos to represent the resilience, hope, and love that runs strong through our community. I hope you enjoy them. . Like Charlie Brown's tree, maybe our community just needs a little love right now. . I can't imagine what people who lost loved ones or their homes are going through. Just know that your community is with you and we will get through this together. We are #TOSTRONG . . . . #805strong #woolseyfire #vcstarpicme #vcsoutdoors #abc7eyewitness #california_igers #thousandoaksstrong #StrongerTogether #movingimages #sunset #conejo #thousandoaks #findyourpark #lahikes #lifeisoutdoors #visitcalifornia #unlimitedcalifornia #modernhiker #caliexplored #canon_photos #canonusa #westlakevillage #conejorpd #witness #VenturaCounty #natureperfection #sunset_ig
Little Baldy was one of those unexpectedly incredible experiences that snuck right into our “10 Best” of 2018. ⠀⠀ In Sequoia National Park, everyone rushes to climb the 400+ stairs at Moro Rock, crowds on the narrow outcropping, and tries to avoid getting all the other tourists in their “insta shots.” ⠀⠀ They have no idea that an even better view awaits, just a little further down the road. And the best part is that there’s NO ONE else there. ⠀⠀ The hike is definitely more of a commitment, but I wouldn’t necessarily call it difficult (my 65-year-old parents did it without any trouble). ⠀⠀ At the top, you’re rewarded with views of the high sierras for miles and miles. And unlike Moro Rock, Little Baldy is a huge expanse of rock, so even if other people are up top, you won’t have to fight for space to take pics 😉 ⠀⠀ We did this hike based on ONE recommendation I saw (and the fact that Dalton and I knew we hated Moro Rock), and we couldn’t be more thrilled we did. What a hidden gem! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #mondaymemories #bestof2018 #top10
Today's #ADVENTure was to find a #hike with snow. We drove up to Lake Arrowhead and hiked Mojave river via the #PCT Along the way we spotted #Aztecfalls Found the snow after we left so in @mrsfeldy105 eyes it was a #success #worthit #optoutside #modernhiker #socalhiker #rei1440project
Woah..if it wasn't for @dandannbaby taking us the #adventurous route, I don't think we would have ever found this #amazingview so early into our hike! . . . In the same way, sometimes in life we are fearful of the unknown and sometimes lean towards the safe route or the most comfortable way to go about doing things without giving ourselves the chance to #explore the #pathlesstraveled or the choice that #challenges our fears. You could never go wrong with fighting your fears, stepping out of your #comfortzone and find #newplaces within yourself that you never knew through #yourjourney of #conqueringfears and self limitations. . . . Tag your most adventurous friend that you'd like to bring on our next hike!🤗 #EBA #empoweredbyadventure #asuzacanyon #asuzatrails #explorecalifornia #losangeleshikes #LAHikes #landscapephography #HIKEescapeLA #LiveAndHikeLA #grouphike #TakeAHike #52hikechallenge #SoCalHiker #socalhiking #Modernhiker #LAHikes #SixPackOfPeaksChallenge #CoastTrekkers #optoutside

When the trail seems to taunt you to keep walking 😂 Speaking of that little whisper, I’d get intrusive thoughts all the time... telling me how horrible, how ugly and useless of a human being I was. ALL the time. I just wanted to make it stop. In the last few months of this year, I’ve noticed that voice telling me to end it all only comes just before my period. That’s a huge step - going from normal every day to just my hormonally weak days. It’s been a rough couple of years but even this tells me having held on was worth it. That things ARE better. I don’t put much stock in hope itself so this fact staring at me in the face is a major step in recovery. Thank you to everyone who’s been there and stuck it out with me. Feeling grateful (despite the cramps) right now. #ptsd #recovery #depression #mentalhealth #rei1440project #neverstopexploring #unlikelyhikers #landscape #trailchat #mentalhealthawareness #todsl #gwhla #trailscape #naturelovers #wildernessco #wildernesstherapy #mothernature #mentalhealthmatters #nature #getlost #wanderlust #modernhiker #instahike #hiking #adventure #goandexplore #optoutside
The Italian Dolomites are very colorful even in December. ⛰😲💜 The crystal clear waters of Lago di Federa definitely worth a 3-4 hours hike from Cortina d’Ampezzo, a popular nearby ski resort. . . . Follow - @hikeunknown 👈
I vow to be more selective with who I share my energy with. No longer will I be with partners who take from me without the capacity to give. Who are not available to love because they do not love themselves. I love myself and all my imperfections. I’m not looking for a partner to complete me for I am already whole. But I will open myself up and love again, because I truly believe in love #santacruzisland #womenwhohike #selflove #modernhiker #sukhasana #yogaeverydamnday #namasteonthemountain #jenmarieyoga #positivevibes #mountains #mothernature #hiking #getlost #intothewild #throwback #hope #camping #sunset #yoga #peace #love #namaste #om

Beer getting warm? No problemo!! Just throw them in the snow and let nature do it’s magic! 🍻❄️☃️
Playing in the snow Friday afternoon. The life proof case makes the audio sound funny... but don’t let that fool you. This was all soft fresh powder!! Untouched by anyone before we got there. Tasted great too 😂 can’t wait to go back once finals are done and I have time to do a full days hike!! ❄️☃️❄️☃️
My annual Jeep pic in front of the snowy Mt Waterman sign 😂❄️☃️❄️☃️
The fog opens the door to an enchanted and mystical realm. The feeling is simply revitalizing as you walk through the forest covered with a blanket of fog.
🐾🏖🌿Carrington Point on Santa Rosa Island at #channelislandsnationalpark . Beautiful hike to check out in the Spring with TONS of wildflowers on the way to this natural land bridge. Near this bridge you may also observe an interesting feud between gulls and cormorants. Definitely doing this one again! #xtcoutdoorlife #socalhiking #4ocean #alltrails #socaltravels #hikingculture #CAnature #modernhiker #socalhiker 🐦🌎🌼
