That Swiss engineering though... ▪️- 🇹​🇭​🇪​ 🇨​🇱​🇴​🇺​🇩​ 🇽​ ▪️- Is one of the world's lightest fully cushioned running shoe brought to us by ON Running ▪️ Dual-density sockliner, seamless shoe tongue, and new-generation inner materials ▪️ CloudTec® sole made to move in all directions flawlessly. ▪️ Lean, engineered heel cap with second-to-none precision-molded cushioning pad technology keeps you stable without strain. ▪️ Here's a Cloud X user review taken from Amazon: - Jim, Texas, I run over 40km per week, I run primarily to build endurance - I have been running on Nike Epic React running shoes since they came out, and prior to that a loyal Nike customer. I got a pair of the Cloud X running shoes on a 30 day trial and needless to say I am not sending them back! Not only are these ultra light, but they are very comfortable to run in and are more breathable than my other running shoes. My running form - specifically my foot strike seems to be much better with these shoes than my Nike's as I can see from the wear pattern that I am hitting the ground more mid foot than I normally do. I definitely will be buying another pair of these. #pnwonderland #pnwlife #upperleftusa #wanderwashington #herpnwlife #pnw #glt #pacificnorthwest #thegreatoutdoors #livewashington #optoutside #naturalwashington #natureaddict #outdoorswithnature #lovethepnw #headedelsewhere #washingtonexplored #the_outdoors_traveler #instagood #upperleftusa #lifeofadventure #neverstopexploring #pnwisbeautiful #compassoutdoors #naturephotography #wonderfulworld #beautifuldestinations #cascadiaexplored
It feels good to be lost in the right direction 🌲

Traveling: it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. 🗺
The unknown is something we look forward to during our adventures. We love to go off trail and see what comes into our life. The Journey only requires you to put one foot in front of the other... again and again and again. Allow yourself to be present though out the entirety of the trek. You will witness beauty every single step of the way, not just at the summit. The Washington coast is always in our hearts.
Squirrel food.
Nature never goes out of style.
You can find me all the way up.
I'd probably run alot faster on the trails in the fall, but I have to stop and "smell the mushrooms". #itsaPNWthing
Full moon drives are so romantic 🌔, Im glad I have myself.

The crescent moon floating above little Tahoma. The moon was very unique that night, as the dark half was quite bright even to the naked eye. I took this photo shortly after the sun went down and the stars started to come out. It was a very productive night as after the moon set behind the mountain, the Milky Way appeared directly over Rainier. Although it wasn't ideal conditions for shooting stars, I think I still got a cool shot. I also have another moon image that I am delaying because I am dreading the edit. Hopefully I can pull it off. ⠀ -⠀ -⠀ -⠀ -⠀ -⠀ #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #naturalwashington #washingtonhikersandclimbers #destinationwa #pnwonderland #cascadiaexplored #pnwdiscovered #pnwparadise #thenwadventure #pnwcrew #northwestexplored #upperleftliving #pnwisbeautiful #upperleftusa #pnwadventuresquad #pnwuncovered #pnwadventurers #collectivelynorthwest #westbysouthwest #thevisualscollective #roam247 #naturalunited #nature_perfection #artofvisuals #ourplanetdaily #rainierwatch #mountrainiernps #visitrainier
Fall, a time to recoup, reflect, realize, and restart. Leaves are changing, air is getting crisp, bears are foraging to hybernate, birds are flying south, as for me.. it’s cuddle season. . . . . . . . . . . _______________________________ ______________________________ #cascadiaexplored #darlingescapes #upperleftusa #PNWbabes #wildernessbabes #onlyinwashington #naturalwashington #explorewashingtonstate #travellikeagirl #alpinebabes #herpnwlife #radgirlslife #sheisnotlost #girlsthatwander #washingtonexplored #thewashingtonphotos #mountaingirls #wearetravelgirls #dametaveler #livewashington #wanderwashington #wanderwomeninc #pnwdiscovered #pnwoutdoorwomen #adventuregirls_int #bestofnorthwest #earthoutdoors #LikeAMountainGirl

I think no matter how much you plan, things are just going to work out the way they are supposed to. I would like to think that occasions such as: when you are running late because a series of events set you back ... are actually happening FOR you. I usually try to think in these situations that I have potentially missed an accident or perhaps aligned with something meant for me instead. Friday for instance, both of my adventure companions that day were feeling sick and had decided against adventuring in favor of rest (which I support 100%). As disappointed as I felt for the change, a series of new events unfolded that felt like I was exactly where I was supposed to be. I changed the location of my adventure. I was prepared with my 10 essentials plus my snow/ice gear. I met a new friend on the trail who needed me just as much as I needed her. We climbed a mountain together. We laughed, cried and connected. We explored new trails. Witnessed a rare black and white colored fox. Saw an amazing sunset. I had just posted last week about being fully capable of going solo. And while both of us had set out that day to go solo on the trail, I think we both can agree that the connections made along the journey help fill the cracks in your soul and fill the joy cups beyond measure. Let today happen for you. I’m excited to see how today unfolds. How about you? . . . . #visitrainier #visitmtrainier #mrnp #themountainisout #nwexposure2018 #nelust #k5explore #OurPNW #washingtonsights #sunrisehike #mtrainierwatch #ourWild #thatPNWlife #PNW #pnwisbeautiful #upperleftUSA #NorthwestCreatives #PNWdiscovered #visitPNW #PNWroamers #peakNW #cascadiaexplored #naturalwashington #onlyinwashington #hikingculture #livewashington #wanderwashington #washingtontrails #washingtonexplored #destinationwa
Skyline divide trail at North Cascades gives an unrivalled view of Mt. Baker and it's one of the best hikes in the North Cascades. This hike is famous for it's wildflowers in spring and I'm super excited about doing this next year. For now, enjoying the magic that fall created. . . . . #northcascades #skylinedivide #mtbaker #seattle #seattlephotography #naturalwashington #landscapephotography #nature #adventureenthusiasts #nature_perfection #ourplanetdaily #explorewashington #pnw #pnwonderland #travel #travelgram #earthpix #earth_shotz #beautifuldestinations #roamtheplanet #wildernessculture #welivetoexplore #nikon #naturalwashington #northcascadesnationalpark #findyourpark #pnwonderland @pnwonderland
"Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more.” - Victoria Erickson 🌲👣 ▪ We left the house as the sun came up and made our way across foggy highways to Mt. Rainier NP. Couldn't let this sunny forecast go to waste! I don't mind a drizzly hike but there is something about breaking through the trees and seeing that glorious mountain! It's simply breathtaking. 💗 . . .

Just as I rounded the corner from my house, I saw these golden leaves highlighted by the sun against the backdrop of a black fence. It certainly caught my eye & I had to stop to take pics of the view. The beauty of nature surrounds us every day but life gets busy & we don’t always acknowledge it. That was me before I started hiking...I hope you enjoy what I saw today. #washingtonproud #hikingwomen #hikingwashington #washingtonstate #hike #hikers #naturephotography #naturelovers #hikingphotography #backtonature #photographyhikes #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthwesthiking #hikingphotos #hikingpacificnorthwest #outdoors #thegreatoutdoors #landscapephotography #onlyinwashington #washingtonexplored #naturalwashington #viewpnw #pnw #wanderwashington #washingtontrails #pnwisbeautiful #explorewashingtonstate #mountainhiking #onlyinwashingtonstate #destinationpnw
Tonight’s sunset from the lookout in Wenatchee. I love how the moon has been rising with the colors of the sunset 🌅 💕
"In Nature there is nothing melancholy." ~ from "The Nightingale" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, English poet, literary critic, & philosopher, born on the 22nd of October, in 1772. The fog from this morning never quite cleared and the setting sun was visible through the blanket created by the clouds and fog #washingtonstate #pnw #naturalwashington #upperleftusa #graysharborcounty #discovergraysharbor #harbwa #oakvillewa #chehalisreservation #fog #darkclouds #eerie #sunset #fall #autumn #poetry #thenightengale #melancholy #samueltaylorcoleridge #nofilter
October 20th, and it's t-shirt hiking weather. Unreal... might as well enjoy it! I logged about 21 mostly easy miles (4100 total gain) starting with sunrise at Second Burroughs (Sunrise, MRNP) and culminating with this evening at Packwood Lake where my dad, uncle, and cousin were camping for a couple days. I hung out with them until night and hiked out in the dark. It was a lovely day!
Views from yesterday’s road trip.

As promised, here are the full falls. I would highly recommend this quick stop. It’s a beautiful hike on a wide trail with a towering canopy!

Simple pleasures. 😌
Believe in your self, and have faith in your abilities. If there is a will then I promise there is a way. Don’t wait because you think the time isn’t right, it’s never ‘just right’. There will be haters, there will be doubters and there will be mistakes. That’s all apart of the journey of life. Have a wicked Sunday guys 🤙.
