Had a (rock) solid weekend in Tofino, warming up for the trip down to Bend tomorrow 🙏
Throwback to my fun-and-juggy first multi-pitch climb during last year's fall color bloom. My favorite season to be outside. 📷 Susan Shih
It’s only Tuesday, but I’m already itching to get back out on the trails 🌲 where do you want to explore?
I understand that everyone is excited about fall; but all these gorgeous pictures being posted from last year is giving me some serious trust issues and anxiety that I’m completely missing everything 😂😂 the FOMO is strong with fall 🍂🍁
Fall is definitely here! Beautiful but chilly paddle on the water this morning trying to catch my dinner before breakfast.
& into the darkness you find the light ❤️
North Cascades National Park in the fall is nothing short of magical. Looming granite peaks, enchanting fall colors, azure alpine lakes, rainbows stretching across valleys below, a curious shiny black bear, and some trail miles filled with laughs and sass ❤ #rebelonpurpose #anotheradventureinthebooks
If you need a smile, just look to Ellie!
Side thought: anyone else always hike with hand sanitizer? 😅
Under the belief that if I post enough photos of this trip I’ll somehow be magically transported back.
Sunset on the coast! I'm grateful to be spending more time on the washington coast, September is beautiful in Washington.❤️
Y así, sólo vive tu vida . . . -
“There is always something to do. There are hungry people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to comfort and make well. And while I don't expect you to save the world I do think it's not asking too much for you to love those with whom you sleep, share the happiness of those whom you call friend, engage those among you who are visionary and remove from your life those who offer you depression, despair and disrespect.” ― Nikki Giovanni - - -
Layers - Another day in the North Cascades: Hannegan Pass & Peak Trail as well as access to Ruth Mountain, Copper Ridge, down into the Chilliwack River valley, Whatcom Pass & Peak, the Big & Little Beaver valleys & on to Ross Reservoir (the Skagit River), the Pickett Range & on & on . . . it's Autumn now in the North Cascades!
Don’t take for granite the obstacles before you. The view on the other side is worth overcoming them. (comment lol when the pun hits)
The way things find a way to flow together in nature always fascinated me. The stream, snow, moss, rocks, and jagged peaks all somehow seem to fit together in a magical way.
Another blending of beauty I’m incredibly excited about is happening a month from today at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle. The Northwest Symphony Orchestra is putting on a benefit concert for @wanatlparkfund
- and what’s more @themusicalmountaineers
will be performing as well! All the while, photos of our local national parks will be playing on a projector, as well as some video from yours truly. Tickets start at only $28, so it’s not only fun but affordable. I hope to see y’all there!
Here is a pretty picture from today’s summit to say thank you to all of you that follow this page!! Thank you for your love, support and cheers! We have some big dreams over here, and your support is crucial to seeing them happen! Why do we hike?? For FREEDOM!!!
So let me get this straight. Your NAME is Baker... but you don't have ANY donuts? 😬 [slams fist on boulder].
Searching for baked goods at the Portals this morning.
I’ve got my eyes set on a fab week ahead! #bringiton
trying out a new editing style for this and my last few photos, feedback is appreciated 💚🙌🌿
I can't do a hamstand... Arizona climbing pretty much kills it. This is the Hitchcock Pinnacle, probably the #1
photo abused piece of rock in the whole park (I think it's a park but it might be an area). We had to climb it, twice. We found some other cool stuff that we will have to explore more at a later date. There is a lifetime of climbing around Tucson and four days just will not do. I'll be back ♡
Gravity check 2018; shit'll go.
no miles like enchantment miles.
20 miles, 8,000’ vert, 2 bulgers, 10x stoked.
It’s not every day that you get to watch the sky on fire with the one you love. But why not try to make it as many as possible?
When ppl ask me, "Why do u hike up a mountain every weekend? You are mad"😐 "Climbing is a white man's sport, why don't you focus on your work?"🙄 "Is this your full time job? Do you get paid for doing this? Then why do you do it?" 🤷🏾♂️ "You grew up in India, don't you feel cold in snow?" 🤦🏽♂️ I just show them pictures like this one. Life is all about experiences, if one doesn't break the barrier or fear, they don't see what lies ahead.
I'm glad i didn't let my fear over power me, and I'm really glad I'm having the best time of my life!! Now... Do I have to answer all the questions above? 😎

Find something you can be grateful and excited for today!
I'm feeling great this morning. Been really getting into my new hobby, meeting some fantastic and talented people, and trying to absorb and learn as much as I can. //
This shot was taken on the east side of Wedge Mountain on the edge of the Enchantments. I don't see my family very often, so it was great to get outdoors with my dad and bro. Looking forward to sharing more soon
