Happy Friday! Enjoy my face!!
And another epic #firelookoutfriday ! โค๐Ÿ—ป | ๐Ÿ“ท by @andrewwehmeier #RainierWatch .
Mount Rainier is famous for its snow, but at lower elevations rain is a far more common form of precipitation. Abundant rainfall refuels rivers and refreshes forests. ________ #findyourpark #mountrainiernps #mrnp #mountrainier #pnw #pnwrain #winter #rain [Video Description: Raindrops create ripples in a puddle of water that reflects the dark forest.

Throwback to smokey Sumner views of Rainier. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ—ป | ๐Ÿ“ท by @jeffmakuta #RainierWatch .
I usually donโ€™t post selfies on IG...but when I do, itโ€™s from 14,000 ft up with @jmaund38 searching for oxygen in the background. . . . Dude had food poisoning the day before we climbed but still managed to push through. For me, this stretch to the summit was the most difficult and is still ingrained in my head as the crux of the climb. The trail seemed never ending but was all worth it once we stepped on the summit. #tbt #latergram . . . .

Low angle sunlight illuminates the forests of Mount Rainier. At a latitude of 46ยบ N, even at noon the winter sun does not reach high into the sky. ___________โ€จ#findyourpark #mountrainiernps #mrnp #mountrainier #pnw #nps #wintersun -kl

I used to always dread coming in at the bottom of the pile. I would do everything I could to avoid it. But now I realize how refreshing being at the lowest point and being a non-expert is. See, when you're at the top of the ladder, there's so much fear of losing all the ground you've covered. When you're at the bottom? There's only one direction to go.

I see its international mountain day. Yall already know I have to shout out my main squeeze Rainier. Currently getting dumped on right now, thankfully. It's not like me to miss a week or even 2, but life demands your attention sometimes. What can you do...

Sure the mountain is impressive, but when covered in frost even a simple wooden fence becomes a sparkling new world to explore. ________ #findyourpark #mountrainiernps #mrnp #mountrainier #pnw #nps #winter #frost #hoarfrost [Description: Sparkling frost covers a fence rail, forming a variety of crystalline structures.] -kl
Number 6: Easily one of my favorite nights of the year. I left work with with @wsmythe_photography at 3pm on a Monday and drove to Paradise, scrambled up to this beautiful tarn off trail and patiently waited while the mountain was completely socked in. She cleared out only moments before sunset and what a sight it was! Hiked out in the dark and was in my own bed by 10pm. I will never take for granted how fortunate I am to have this playground as my backyard Edit: You guys! Thanks for all the love! Itโ€™s now surpassed not only the original posting in โ€˜likesโ€™, but the next two also. Youโ€™re messing this Top 9 thing up for me! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿค—

Social media can be such a downer sometimes. More often than not I find myself wanting to delete everything & never look back. I'm always comparing myself to other people & their lives when I know better. Yes there are plenty of beautiful & awesome people out there living amazing lives but social media is usually just a highlight reel (including my own feed) and you never know what's going on behind the scenes in someone's life & mind. It's inevitable for me though, I'm always putting myself down & comparing myself to others, physically, emotionally, mentally. Always wishing my life was "better" when I should just focus on myself & all the good things in my life that I'm constantly taking for granted, as well as always striving to better myself. The only person you're in competition with is yourself. It doesn't matter what other people are doing. If you aren't happy with something, do what you can to make the changes necessary & most of all take time to focus on the positives vs the negatives. The future is so uncertain & you can choose to look at that with a positive outlook (opportunities are endless) or a negative one (what if I fail, what if I don't reach this, I should've done this in the past & now I'm never going to be this, etc.). We're all on our own timeline with our own journeys, dreams, lifestyles, relationships, & goals. There is no RIGHT way. Definitely have been needing this reminder to myself lately so thought I'd share if anyone else is struggling. . . . . . . . . . . #mtrainier #degepeak #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #view #mountains #washingtontrails #hike #hiking #northwestisbest #mountrainiernps #optoutside
Crazy to think this was the Mt. Rainier area about 3 weeks ago compared to my pictures from right outside of the park this past weekend! Seasons change so quickly in Washington! Although it's sunny right now in Tacoma which I don't mind hanging onto that last bit of sunshine before fall completely consumes the state. I love the sunlight shining on the fall colors and can't wait for more trees to turn over here. I really only like the first several weeks of fall though lol. I'm dreading November which in my opinion is the worst month. It's the rainiest, the days are short, and darkness comes around much quicker. At least in December you get that festive holiday cheer and possibly some snow and then January-March the days slowly get longer as spring approaches. Ok enough of my rambling though. This is definitely an introvert problem. We can go on about a topic for hours lol! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #summer #mtrainier #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #washington #pnwcollective #pnwlife #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #wanderlust #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #nikon #photography #view #mountains #washingtontrails #travelblogger #hike #hiking #lifestyleblogger #beautifuldestinations #mountrainiernps
