Happy to be in the mountains ⛰
Today was a challenging hike. This was my most challenging hike to date. Sitting shy of 10,000 feet, Mount Baden-Powell is a wicked hike that will crush your soul, as well as your legs. You begin at approximately 8,000 feet and you head straight up 40 switchbacks. The starting elevation really took its toll as I struggled to manage my heart rate and breathing. It was not pretty. Fortunately, around mile two things became easier as my body acclimated to the altitude. Do not be fooled, 8,000 feet is a lot for your body to handle when you spend your entire life at sea level. You will not adjust on the drive up to the trailhead, FYI. Overall I would say this was a good training hike and I noticed a lot of folks carrying a full pack. People were not as polite as I have encountered on other trails and they were not good with their etiquette and allowing you to pass, but they were clean. I did no spot any garbage! #mtbadenpowell #mountbadenpowell #socalsixpack #hiking #socal #outdoors #sangabrielmountains #nature #flora #buffheadwear #modernhiker #optoutside #hikecalifornia #hikesocal
To all those who visit this place and keep it clean, thank you! 🙌🏽 . To all those who leave their water bottles in between the trunks and on the the ground, please tell your parents they raised you wrong. 🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♀️ . To all those who carve their names on the bark of the tree, what the actual f*#€? 🤦🏽‍♂️ .

The sun rises over the trail, heating up the tree sap and pine needles, allowing the aroma to permeate the morning air. I whisper I love you to the ground beneath my worn feet. That’s gratitude. . . . . . . . . . #coloradotrail #CT #whereeverlitetakesyou #likeamountaingirl #girldiscoverers #womenwhohike #outdoorwomen #outdoorwomen #optoutside #mtnchicks #letsgosomewhere #alltrails #earthfocus #alpinebabes #wearethewild #getoutside #forceofnature #explore #modernhiker #herwanderfullife #womenwhoexplore #sheexplores #choosemountains #mtnfolk #bigagnes #exploremore #hikecolorado

Day 5 Be happy and smile 😁
Fighting with this waterfall wasn't easy 😅 this is the best 📷 I have 🤨
Multnomah Falls: iconic waterfall located east of Portland, OR and also the tallest waterfall in the state. Honestly, for a short period of time.. the only reason I wanted to go to Oregon was to see this waterfall! Last year’s fire in Oregon almost closed down this beautiful spot but thankfully they saved it in time. There are still summer fires going strong from California up to Canada as well as several parts of the world right now... prayers to those affected (humans, animals, as well as the land) and hoping it will all end soon.

Running away from my problems ✌🏼
On Saturday one of our Hike Leads @el_simpson91 joined @ryp_hiking on an exploratory Hike to Mt. Baldy via Ski Hut Trail and down The Devils Backbone. The day couldn't have gone any better and the weather was perfect. • As Hike leads we like to scope out potential hikes before taking a group with us. Safety always comes first on all of our hikes and we Love taking everyone to discover new trails. • #HIKEscapeLA #ToLiveAndHikeInLA #HIKE #GroupHike #LosAngeles #TakeAHike #DiscoverLA #52HikeChallenge #TODSL #SoCalHiker #SoCalHiking #ModernHiker #TeamWork #Columbia #RockSlideCrew #LAHikes #SixPackOfPeaksChallenge #NatureLovers #SixPackOfPeaks #CoastTrekkers #REI #Hilingmontañas #REI1440project #OptOutside #Hiking #LA #mtbaldy #mtsanantonio #ryphiking
So we started off strong but 20ft into the trail we were all covered in sweat 😓. Fun time with plenty of smiles. Big thanks for everyone who made it out. #midweekhikers #grouphike #werehikers #optoutside #adventure #hiking #explore #modernhiker #outdoors #hikebeyondthehills #thegreatoutdoors #outbound #wildernessculture #adventurealliance #trekking #trails
Coming out of the woods for World Photography Day |
Thank you husband for always putting up with me. I’m a lucky girl. #sequoianationalpark
I’d rather see the world from a different angle. 🖤🌲 Imma let y’all in a little secret. Everybody likes to skip Basin Falls at Uvas County because it looks dried up while looking at it from the bottom of Nature Trail. But if you actually hike to the falls, then climb it, you’ll find it flowing with a lot of water into a small hidden oasis (about 4 ft deep) surrounded by gorgeous rocks. You’re welcome. _____________________________________________________ #uvascanyon #waterfall #norcal #nature #hiking #outdoors #landscape #modernhiker #findyourpark #morganhill #rei1440project #exploring #gopark #adventure #countypark #chasingwaterfalls #basinfalls #52hikechallenge
Spending my Birthday in nature with good company is all I need. Love you sister. #sequoianationalpark #campvibes
😎 Looking at the Grand View Point. Nice clean trail with shade, and good signage. Had the trail pretty much to myself. Crossed paths with a few hikers and their fur babies descending as I was ascending, however I was the only one on the trail when I was descending. 🌲 Respect the BEAUTIFUL places you visit by packing out all your trash 💩 LEAVE NO TRACE!!! 🚮 🌲 Happy hiking 😎

That awkward moment when you get caught trying to fix your hair for that perfect gram shot 🤦🏻‍♀️
Would you want to see where this path leads? (Spoiler- you should, the view is amazing)
Wait? Where did the weekend go? Let us know where you took your #happiheadware this weekend! ⬇ #tamethefrizz 📸@ben_duke_media
Second time going to Valley Of Fire & It Didn’t Disappoint.
To love Los Angeles is to find improbable beauty in unexpected places. #losangeles #modernhiker #lariver #california #outdoors #optoutside #neverstopexploring #rei1440project #socal @losangeles_city
have you ever seen water so clear? would you have guessed this place is in canada? did you know only about 25% of people who come here are from outside of Ontario? . if you haven't been to the Bruce Peninsula, I highly recommend it 🌊🇨🇦

⋆ℭA ⠀ ⠀ ⚔️ It takes guts to go after the life of your dreams ..to truly #EscapeTheOrdinary ! It’s not easy to disregard those who try to talk to you into being realistic. Being realistic is the surest path to mediocrity. Dare to risk it all ..but most importantly..Dare to Live Passionately & embrace the Journey! -@ogchamp ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🎥 @JGaleasVisuals 🎶 @Shalloumusic -Truth
From a distance these rocks were not anything special. Then I got closer and immediately felt bad for judging them. The jagged lines rising out of a green floor and contrasting a blue ceiling are awesome. If you ever find yourself on the trail to Garnet Peak there is only a small section that gives you this perspective so don’t let it sneak past you. They are not the trail’s main event but certainly make a fantastic opening act. #SoCalTravels . 📷: @brandonsvistapoint
it's a dream and I don't want to wake up. ✨ 12.5 miles, 5 hours, and 28k steps ✨ Blanca Lake is my favourite hike in Washington because of this gorgeous blue water. Plus, it's super challenging. With the road washout, it adds another 2 miles just to get to the trailhead (+4 miles total). I made decent time, but honestly I got my ass kicked. Don’t let Instagram fool you—it was not glamorous. There were SO many aggressive and annoying biting flies for more than 70% of the hike and I did a lot of squealing and maybe even teared up, but I made it! 🙌🏽 Anyway, will try to hike it once more before the end of hiking season this year. Must. bring. floaties 🦄 🍩

"Sometimes when you're in a dark place you think you've been buried, but you've actually been planted." 🌱 -Christine Caine __________________________________________ This weekend was a blessing. This weekend provided nothing but happiness, joy & clarity. A change in environment allowed for a refreshing and welcomed euphoria that was unexpected but accepted with an open heart and soul. ______ This weekend, I looked my issues head-on and decided I wasn't going to feel sorry for myself anymore. After months of pretending to be okay while battling my own health, anxiety, depression, and insecurities, I finally feel a weight lifted.  I really have no other way to describe it than truly seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.  A light that leads to contentment & peace of mind.  ______ Quick shout-out to my husband for talking through the ugly, the pain, and the embarrassment. For encouraging me to really think and change the way I react to feelings of disappointment and not setting expectations for people or situations altogether. ______ We all live our own lives, have our own struggles and priorities.  Mine won't align with others and that's okay...they don't have to. ______ I am constantly reminding myself that I can only work on and try to better control and react to my own anxiety, depression and  insecurities.  I cannot choose for others what they choose to hold on to and what they choose to let go.  I cannot choose who people choose to forgive or who they do not.  ______ I can however, choose to "be a fountain and not a drain." I can choose to move forward every day trying to be a better individual than the day before. ______ I am a work in progress, always. I do not lead a perfect life and my struggles do not outweigh those of others. I type these words to help hold myself accountable. To remind myself to find the happiness in the difficult days and to be a fountain to those who are going through difficult days themselves. ______ I recently read a quote: Make it easy on yourself. Choose people who choose you.  Over and over.  ______ Thank you to my Family & Friends who always choose me. Over & over ❤ ______ Everything is a choice. #IHaveBeenPlanted 🌱
