Thankful for the sunshine today, my adventure buddy, Dakota, my husband who tells me to take a break from studying and go out and enjoy the day, and for my dinner of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. 🍪🙆‍♀️ . . . . . . . . . . . #hikingwithdogs #hikingadventures #pnwdogs #pnwvisuals #pnw_compass #ourpnw #adventuredog #washingtontrails #washingtonhikersandclimbers #gratitude #thegreatpnw #thegreatoutdoors #themountainsarecalling #letsgosomewhere #wanderwashington #liveauthentic #lifeofadventure #optoutside #rei1440project #naturegram #natureaddict #naturelovers
Another day in Paradise. And slightly above it too! Pinnacle and Castle with Hood in the distance.
Crevasse rescue and belay tie off training today at the mountaineers center! Fun day. Fun people and lots of learning. #ourpnw #mountains #mountaineers #climbers #climberslife #crevasse #belay
I know not when the sun will set on my journey - but I trust The Keeper of both my soul and time and keep on making footprints...
North Cascades ❤. ✌🌲🌲🌲
🔸"This photo is near and dear to my heart for many reasons, but primarily because this is the final resting place of my grandfather Jim. We lost my grandfather nearly 15 years ago to suicide. His passing was a moment of soul-searching and reflection for my entire family. His ashes are scattered here, and now that I am old enough to climb, and an avid climber myself, I visit him every summer on his birthday—August 31st. I #choosemountains for the sanity and tranquility they provide. They are a grounding force in our world that sometimes seems so out of control. When I feel lost, I tend to get lost in them for a few days at a time and find myself again. I want everyone to know that there will always be someone out there to love, nurture, and hear them when they feel alone or isolated. Maybe, just maybe, by choosing the comfort of the mountains, future suicides may be prevented.” . . // @tophasaurus . .

I carried my telephone up this mountain and took this photograph with it. #mountaincrushmonday

Off the beaten path.... . We explored a second mine today and will be back without a doubt! I am just so enamored by the history of the hundreds of inactive mines we have in our local mountains. So many of these mines have been lost and forgotten in time, yet mining (and the towns that flourished surrounding them) are such a huge part of the local history here. This mine was discovered in 1897 and active until roughly 1946, had 5 different claims, 5 shafts (of which 3 are underwater now), and produced nearly 13 million pounds of copper, 156,000 pounds of silver and roughly 1500 ounces of gold during its active years. Several of the mines we’ve attempt to find or have found and explored are typically always off the beaten path and on occasion require bushwhacking, scrambling and some definite navigation skills.... and that is why I love searching for these hidden gems.

#7 of 30: Went back to Lake Annette (2008) with a raft. The weather was different - cold and starting to rain. It was threatening in a way it wasn't the first time.
When people talk about hugging trees, this probably isn't the kind of tree they have in mind. However, snags and other freaky trees need the occasional hug too. 🤗🌲
I remember going on annual ski trips when I was growing up in Texas and being envious of people who lived near ski areas where they were able to hold season ski passes. Now that I live in Washington and do have the luxury of having a season pass, I hope I never take being able to ski often and having friends to ski with for granted. . 📸 @wheninseattle
Explored a few different mines today.
I shot this in West Seattle a few years back 💜
A lot of people look forward to the weekend as a chance to sleep in and relax, but I refuse to jump on that train of thought. Weekends mean waking up early and chasing the horizon to squeeze as many hours I can into my next adventure! . #pnwoutdoorwomen #pnwcollective #pnwwonderland #sheadventures #wildchild #wildflower #accesyourpassion #nwisbest #leftcoast #upperleftusa #choosemountains #gregory #thediscoverer #TestedTough #womenwhohike #darntough #dirtbagdarling #outoftheashes #searchingforserenity #wildernessbabes #HerPNWlife #madewild #staywild #ourpnw #AACGram
Today’s golden hour was very much needed #seattle
Super goooober. 😬
I could spend infinite nights beneath these stars; sleeping atop wind-swept ice, and waking up to the aggressive chill of whistling winds. I love it for what it is but when it's followed by watching the sun chase the night away as the light of dawn climbs each and every peak respectively, I'd venture to call it heavenly.
Got to practice my schmoo-boarding skills today on the splitboard, yay!! Ok, maybe the snow wasn't so good, but it was still fun and a beautiful evening for a little Hyak tour! C'mon snow... we need you!! ❄️🏂☃️ . . . . #snowboarding #snowboardlife #thepasslife #snoqualmiepass #pnw #pnwonderland #choosemountains #exploremore #getoutside #igwashington #northwestisbest #ourpnw #optoutside #radgirlslife #sheadventures #upperleftusa #washingtonexplored #mtnchicks #outdoorwomen #herpnwlife #sheshredsco #back40hikes

Traded Japanese bullet trains for the Cascade mountains. I’m back where my heart belongs. Also, I ran into Jerry on the trail! • • • • • #optoutside #reiemployee #rei1440project #getoutside #washingtontrails #wanderwashington #theoutbound #notasuck #upperleftusa #outdoorsociety #ourpnw #thatpnwlife #igers_seattle #ShotoniPhone

Shawna and the pups enjoying the easy trail down. I'll try every time to capture low sunlight in the trees and someday it'll happen. Until then you'll have to settle for bright purple leggings. #sharewhatyoulivefor  #wanderwashington  #pnw  #pnwonderland  #ourpnw  #nrthwst  #upperleftusa  #choosemountains #washingtontrails #keepitwild #neverstopexploring
