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.
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
"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. 💗

Tonight’s sunset from the lookout in Wenatchee. I love how the moon has been rising with the colors of the sunset 🌅 💕
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!

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!

3:15am started up the trail after returning "Dronie" back to the car and filling out the fee slip. No drones allowed and a $5 day pass

Had a wonderful day and as far as I know my anxiety didn’t have me making a fool of myself, so yay ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
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 🤙.
