Hello, my name's Alex.
And occasionally you can see both my eye balls... 👀
Happy International Mountain Day! 🏔 We are so lucky to have a plethora of majestic mountains surrounding us! Thank you to @nicktemperli
for this splendid shot of the crown jewel of the Cascades herself, Mt. Rainier! 👑😊 #MountainDay #FromTheTop
Happy international mountain day. Our low camp from a trip this summer.
❣️😍🤩 Where do I begin?! The experiences I have had in the mountains, especially during climbs, are some of the most memorable, most humbling, and most valuable lessons that I cherish near and dear to my heart. It has changed my life in so many positive ways.
Love, love, LOVE Mountains♥️
tie me to the train tracks,
light me up like a blunt when you face that.
swear i got a halo, mistake it for a target.
Holiday blues. Can’t wait for Australia 🏞
Today is International Mountain Day. “Almost one billion people live in mountain areas, and over half the human population depends on mountains for water, food and clean energy. Yet mountains are under threat from climate change, land degradation, over exploitation and natural disasters, with potentially far-reaching and devastating consequences, both for mountain communities and the rest of the world”- U.N. #mountainsmatter
Bonus point for people who can spot Mt Rainier in the photo.
Crisp days and clear waters ✨

Fog season was too short. ☁️
People will say it’s photoshopped.
July 12th: Completing the Wonderland Trail, Reflection Lake.
It had been four days and 92 of the hardest miles I had ever walked. My dad and I had started the Wonderland Trail 4 days prior with hopes of completing it in 6 days. As fate had it my dad began experiencing knee pains and hopped off the trail 28 miles and two days in. I hoped to crush the remaining 66 miles in two days so my dad wouldn’t spend the next four waiting for me. Over the next two days I found in myself new ceilings of ability, endurance and grit. I hiked 33 miles each of the next two days, my first days over 30 miles and on one of the steepest longtrails in the country. Through snow, mosquitos and a brief bout of brutal humidity.
I reached the view above, Reflection Lake, after the final climb of the trail and with only 4 miles left to go. As I walked past the tourists who had hopped out of their cars to snap a quick picture I realized that perspective isn’t always just in the lense, but in the experience.
Maybe its because I’m headed out west next week, but I just can’t stop going through photos of Mt. Rainier from this last September. Truly a magical place
8.3.17 A day to remember for so many reasons. I slept through 60 mph winds at 11,100ft in a tent ⛺️ • jumped over a crevasse • & got engaged 💎 I felt pretty badass...I can’t wait to climb another mountain! Or even get my booty out to 🏂!
Sorry not sorry for spamming my insta with old photos I’ve found! I love you so much @casey.parrish
