Stormy skies over Lake Basin before we had to hike over Cartridge Pass. Cartridge Pass begins at the talus slope pictured in the center of the photo.
“These kickass ladies were on a day trip from the LA area. They were going to attempt Cloudripper but got a late start so I met them on ChocolatePeak instead. So grateful to live in an era when women of all ethnicities have the freedom to be strong and free in the wild, and we have access to wide open public spaces. Lets preserve and grow the rights for all the above.” - I fell so in love with the words our new friend @askkseesit posted on Facebook with the above pics. I added the vid of us at the summit. She is an inspiring woman who believes in slowing down to the speed of life, living right relations, oneness and love. 🙌🏼 SWIPE➡️ - Like I always say, the best part of hiking is meeting people from all walks of life. ❤️🙌🏼❤️ - - - #chocolatepeak #visitbishop #easternsierra #mountainlife #mountainlovers #hikers #takeahike #hikingadventures #womenwhohike #seekthetrail #offtrail #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #women #womensupportwomen #womeninspiringwomen #womenunite #strongwomen #strongertogether #fillyourselfup #elevateyourself #vibratehigher #goodvibes #love #selflove #positivity #positivevibes #livelife

Moki Marble Madness! We came across a gazillion of these ranging up to baseball size. This went on for about a mile.

"Mate-guarding is one of the most common tactics in sperm competition. Those who fail in mate-guarding risk suffering substantial reproductive costs ranging from genetic cuckoldry to reputational damage to the entire loss of a mate." - National Geographic, "Human Mate-Guarding", vol. 11, 2013. #PlayToWin #KingApe #GoodGenes #hiking #backpacking #tahoe #camping #trailhead #outdooradventure #naturelovers #backcountry #offtrail #hikingculture #mateguarding #hikelife #californiaadventure #wildernessculture
If I could figure out how grow food in volcanic sand, with very little water, to carve a life out of dry and wild land, to make an income in the very middle of nowhere, I would move to the rain-shadow of the Sierras in a heart beat. There is a wildness in this landscape that make me feel alive.
Happy Tuesday, #Tucson ! 81 and sunny today. Peeking between saguaros this morning #hiking #offtrail in @sabinocanyonaz and feeling those cool moments in the crispy 60’s. Luscious Fall weather we’re having in our #highdesert ! #tuesdaythoughts
Get a little stillness in yer day.... ✌ #peace
Even the smallest of paradises can fill the soul. - Jessica Tejera •••••••••••••••••••••••••• Have you ever thought that you won't find the peace or serenity you are seeking on a short trip. Whether it's a short trail, 30 minutes at the beach, or just a walk at a park. Sometimes you feel like it won't fill that void in your soul that you are seeking to fill. Did you also know that you are wrong! I was wrong too. I thought that hitting a trail this weekend wouldn't give me the peace and escape from reality that I was seeking. It did though. It brought me just that. Even if it didn't fill it completely it still filled it more than what it would of been if I hadn't gone. You just have to get out. Even if a part of you tells you to stay at home and mope around. Ignore that little voice in your head and get out and explore. Anything is better than nothing. Plus our world is beautiful, you just have to go out and see it for yourself. . . . . . #twmblog #twmadventures #alabama #northalabama #huntsvillealabama #huntsvilleal #visithuntsvilleal #travelcommunity #travelpassion #exploretheglobe #getlost #writetotravel #travelwriter #travelgram #neverstopexploring #southernstatesco #outdooractivities #outdoorrecreation #offtrail #hikersofinstagram #hikerbabes #hikelikeawoman #girlsthathike #happypeoplehike #mtnchicks #alltrails #idhikethat #peoplewhohike #getoutandhike #hikingadventures
Finished the Lowest to Highest standing atop a windy, snow dusted Mount Whitney at 14,505 feet!! It seemed like an appropriate way to end an epic ~135 mile hike of extremes and insanely varied terrain. On our last day, I was feeling strong and set the pace for us leaving from Whitney portal at 4:30am. The temperatures were cold enough we didn't take breaks longer than to catch our breaths. As we looked into the distance, we looked back on our hike, seeing some of the more recent landmarks like Alabama Hills and the Inyo Mountains. This was a hike that challenged me and continuously surprised me with its beauty. As I hiked back down towards the portal, it seemed as if fall had suddenly arrived. I breathed in the cold air, smiled at the leaves yellowing on the trees and welcomed the season change and the end of my hike. Want to hear more about my hike and see some of the highlights?! I will be doing an Instagram takeover for @garagegrowngear to share more from the amazing route! 📸 @aladdin_hikes

I've been finding so many of these guys lately! They look so cool!
“Dog contemplates love and life,” a piece by Nature painted with enchanted sunshine! Thank you to whoever left this sign on the trail! Plus saw my favorite singer, @keithurban , for first time this weekend and cried tears of joy! Videos don’t do him justice, but the concert felt like coming home! Thanks for your art and kindness, Keith! Hope everyone had a grand weekend! 🐶🍁🎼✌🏻 #hike #hiking #fall #myboys #puppylove #dog #yellow #fantasy #woods #getoutdoors #nature #leaves #trees #womenwhoexplore #art #heart #toocute #writinginspiration #writer #offtrail #forest #nofilter #concert #keithurban #guitar #music #lyrics #dreamcometrue #love #weekendvibes
Enjoying the last month of sun before the dark season. An off trail morning stroll, freezing toes and a muddy dog. Love! #alaskanmalamute #runningwithdogs #traildog #trailrunning #offtrail #everydaylove #everydaylife #outdoors #lifeinthearctic #abisko
Inne bland träden når solljuset bara fram ibland, som skimrande band och trådar mellan trädstammarna. På marken står enstaka blåklockor och sträcker på sig för att få kontakt och värme, om så bara för en stund innan frosten tar dem. #naturensgång #sol #autumn #höst #offtrail #hiking #vandring #outdoors #skog #forest #thewoods #lifedesign

On the edge of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Fall has clearly arrived, though still waiting for that PNW rain (many creeks are still nearly dry). Exploring off-trail not far from Mt. St. Helens, then to a big waterfall via a decimmisioned trail. Finally found the old sports car that ended up down a cliff into the creek decades ago (back when there was still a road up above there). • • • • #phonephotography #giffordpinchot #nationalforest #washington #pnw #waterfall #mushrooms #fungi #fungus #fallseason #fallcolors #ferns #greenforest #northwoods #bigcreek #fr90 #oldcar #stump #moss #creek #washingtonexplored #pnwwonderland #galaxys7 #phonephoto #pnwphotographer #bushwacking #offtrail

Larches are some of the most beautiful trees in the PNW in the fall. Taking the time to head out and see them is a must do for anyone visiting. Cutthroat pass was a beautiful escape. . . . . . #pnwphotographer #pnwlife #pnwcollective #pnwonderland #larches #fall #snow #mountain #mountains #pnw #pnwhiking #pnwdiscovered #pnwisbest #northwest #northwestcreatives #northwestisbest #nature #explore #adventure #optoutside #getoutside #landscapephotography #hiking #clouds #offtrail #natureshots
Leg 2 of the Raid Del Viento was my favorite. We spent a few hours running/hiking/shlomping below the snow capped peaks of the Cordillera Del Viento range. One of the best parts about AR is it takes you to places you never would have gone before or never would have even thought about going to. This was one of those special locations that if it weren’t for the race, I would have never been here.

Tiny boy!
I was never big on dehydrated foods or MRE's till I saw how beneficial they were when outdoors. Most of the time you just add water and voila, you have a delicious meal ready to eat in just a few minutes. Recently I have had the opportunity to try some @outdoorpantry products and I am going to be honest. I was excited yet hesitant about these cookies but let me tell you that I was so wrong. These Mexican cookies are so delicious. I can seriously eat them all day long. Best of all the ingredients are completely nutritious. No junk in them at all. If you are ever looking for some good trail food or snacks then @outdoorpantry is definitely one brand I highly recommend. 👍 #ad #sponsored #outdoorpantry . . . . . #twmblog #twmadventures #backpackingfood #trailfood #alabama #trailsnacks #familytravelblogger #travelcommunity #travelpassion #outdooractivities #outdoorrecreation #offtrail #hikersofinstagram #peoplewhohike #gohike #getoutandhike #hikingadventures #huntsvillealabama #huntsvilleal #trailfinds #hikinggear #hikingfood #backpacking #hiking #outdoors #hikers #landoftrust

Happy Monday, #Tucson ! 75 and mostly sunny today. #Hiking this morning #offtrail in @sabinocanyonaz realizing these saguaros absolutely loved all that rain over the weekend. Statuesque family of #saguaros . #familytime - Have a soaring sunny week in the #highdesert ! #visittucson #saguaroland
About a half mile above the Upper Falls I came across this little fall Upper Upper Bear Ranch Creek Falls maybe?
Spent our day off figuring out permits for Mount Whitney and going to find one of our water caches we skipped. The temperatures have been much cooler than we anticipated, meaning that we didn't need quite as much water. Being able to do this hike and walk through extremely dry desert environments has been spectacular and was made hugely easier by caching water. It's important to remember our impact on the land and desert ecosystems, please always pack out your caches. In our case this meant going back to grab this one. Other steps we took to try to minimize the effects of our caches were hiding them well as to not hamper the experiences of others and we packed out trash that we found while setting up the caches. ❤️🌎 #lnt

You can almost feel the magic in these woods. Maybe one day I can capture it on camera, but for now you'll have to settle for this. 😄
