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
Fall is officially upon us. When I was younger I would always dread the end end of summer. But now I find myself welcoming the changing of the seasons. Nature has its different seasons just like we do. • • • Tags: #pnwwonderland #ourpnw #pnwphotographer #pnwlife #sunrise #thatpnwlife #pnwhiking #pnwisbest #pnwisbeautiful #pnwcollective #pnwdiscovered #northwest #northwestisbest #nature #reflection #mtrainier #rainier #rainierwatch #hiking #natureshots #adventure #landscapephotography #optoutside #naturelovers #naturephotography #explore
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 🍂🍁
Ok! This is my first B&W for a long time. I am still in the process of learning how to edit and enhance my photos. What application do you use? #washingtonstate #womenwhohike #hike #theenchantments #pnwonderland #ourpnw #washingtontrails #pnwoutdoorwomen
Fall is definitely here! Beautiful but chilly paddle on the water this morning trying to catch my dinner before breakfast.
When I’m sick, I get spoiled. Last night, this guy did the vacuuming while I was running. This morning I woke up to find the kitchen spotless. He even cleaned and put away the greasy crockpot which we used for last night’s dinner. I’m so thankful for his help. #Ilovehim so much. . . . . . . . #pinelake #lakeview #sammammish #seenonmywalk #blueskies #naturephotography #naturelovers #rei1440project #optoutside #pnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #pnwlife #ourpnw #lakefront
@twosoundwomen will be here all weekend hosting FOUR different workshops.⠀ .⠀ Decolonizing the Great Outdoors: This conversation will focus on strategies for getting more POC into the outdoors. Barriers and solutions will be discussed.⠀ .⠀ Health and Wellness: Meditation is a process of training your mind to focus, increasing awareness of yourself and your surroundings. Simple techniques that will help you gain skills for the practice of meditation.⠀ .⠀ Yoga: Moving into and through postures mindfully with your breath works to reset your stress response and gently release toxins in your body enabling you to access your radiant energy. Low intensity. ⠀ .⠀ The Healing Properties of Nature: This will be a community conversation focusing on POC experience with hiking, camping and getting outdoors. Safety and "taking up space" as a POC will be discussed.⠀ .⠀ What better way to start your days at the @refugeoutdoorfestival than with Yoga and Meditation?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #refugefest #letsmeetoutside #representationmatters #realconversations #communitybuilding #outdoorsforall #outdooradventures #campingadventures #pnw #pnwonderland #ourpnw #thatpnwlife #upperleftusa #washingtontrails #washingtonstate #seattlewashington #seattlelife
Quiet friend who has come so far, feel how your breathing makes more space around you. Let this darkness be a bell tower and you the bell. As you ring, what batters you becomes your strength. Move back and forth into the change. What is it like, such intensity of pain? If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine. In this uncontainable night, be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses, the meaning discovered there. And if the world has ceased to hear you, say to the silent earth: I flow. To the rushing water, speak: I am. - Rilke . . . #pnw #pacificnorthwest #upperleftusa #washington #washingtontrails #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnwcollective #ourpnw #northwestnature #herpnwlife #wanderlust #pnwoutdoorwomen #womenwhohike #wwhmember #hikingpnw #womenwhoexplore #pnwp #landscapephotography #pnwphotographer #poetry #naturephotography #nature #optoutside #getoutstayout #northwestisbest #ourwild #explorewashington #sheadventures @explorewashstate @thegreat_pnw @her.pnw.life
I’ve spent years traveling around the world and there’s no place I’d rather be than the Pacific Northwest. Another fantastic weekend in the mountains. Here’s the tippy top of Dragontail peaking out above a valley full of fog. . . . . . #cashmeremountain #chickswhoclimb  #mountaineering #alpinism  #pnwonderland  #wanderwashington #sheadventures  #exploremore #adventurestartshere  #pnw #greatoutdoors  #outdoors #hikingadventures #cascadiaexplored  #washington  #upperleftusa  #pnwisbest #ourpnw #girlswhoclimb #mountains #optoutside #pnwonderland #choosemountains #chicksclimbingandskiing
& 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
View from the top this past June🤘🏼🌋 Mt. Hood is such an incredible mountain. So close to Portland it’s no wonder it’s so popular to climb. I was blown away by the beauty, but given the popularity of the south side route I was also surprised at the feeling of exposure. An icy route, run outs leading to cliffs and Steaming fumeroles, and numerous ice fall hazards with the rising sun the standard south side routes are truly not for the faint of heart, or the inexperienced • • • #pnw #alpine #optoutside #adventure #pnwonderland #ourpnw #oregon #oregonexplored #volcano #climb #mountaineer #sonyalpha #sonyphotography #sonya6300 #patagonia #rei #cascadevolcanoes #mthood #mthoodsummit
Hidden in the clouds
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! + #silence #nikkigiovanni #poetrycommunity #responsibility #ourpnw #backpackingculture #northcascades #pnwhiking #pnwclimbing #autumntrails #peakseason #letsgetlost #autumnleaves #fallhiking #autumnhike #trailrunning #pnwwonderland #adventuretime #wildernessnation #themountainsarecalling #lgbtqia #thereisnoplanetb #lovetrumpshate #cascadiaexplored #wildernessculture #pnwwilderness #gotothemountains #climbinglife #gooutside #hikinglife @northcascadesnps @washingtontrails @literaryhub

Painted Hills, 9.21.18
I remember the way I felt when I first moved to Bellingham. I was barely 20 and I was on the hunt for myself. The feeling was magnificent and overwhelming and stronger than anything I’d ever known. I’m creeping closely to 25 now and it feels like I’ve seen a million of these same sunsets. They never get old, they never feel truly the same, and they always remind me why I’m here - even when I question it all. Despite the changes and the friends and loves that have come and gone from here, I am wild for this place that always welcomes me home with open arms. I have so many more sunsets to see here. So many more. . . . . #bellingham #washington #bham #bellinghome #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #explore #exploremore #getoutside #ourpnw #upperleftusa #featureplace #livefolk #liveauthentic #fall #autumn #sunset #beach #greatnorthcollective #greatnorthwest #pnwdiscovered #justpnw #thenwadventure #nwadventure #cascadiaexplored #afterlight2
Believe it or not, this is a sport climb in Leavenworth! Some fun juggy climbing under and through a roof leads to a huge hueco you can squeeze yourself into and then climb out of to a bouldery top out. Classic! It's called St Vitus Dance. Very different from its counterpart in Squamish. I was in Leavenworth last weekend for the @mountaineers_adventure_club Kick-Off trip. We had about 20 students and 10 adult volunteers and got some of the new members out on rock for their first time whilst the returning members instructed and led climbs. Great weekend! I'm stoked for the year to come. If you're interested in hearing about how you can get involved as a volunteer, shoot me an email carlm@mountaineers.org #accessyourpassion #laspomoment #DeuterDefies #kinfolk #climbing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #ourPNW @mountaineersorg @pinnaclesalesnw @edgetvnetwork
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. . .

Those cool & crisp autumn days are finally here. #ourpnw 📷 by @br14nh
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. #timetoplay
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? 😎 #ourpnw #brownpplclimb #brownguysclimb #outdoorasian
This week leading up to the event we will be releasing what activties and workshops organizations will be leading. Mark down what you don't want to miss! @girltrek will be leading: . . Walk in Out. We’ll walk the suspension bridge over the Snoqualmie River and walk along Tolt River with scenic viewpoints. 3 Miles /light to moderate ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #refugefest #letsmeetoutside #representationmatters #pnw #pnwonderland #ourpnw #thatpnwlife #upperleftusa #washingtontrails #washingtonstate #theadventuregap #diversifyoutdoors #forceofnature #facesoftheoutdoors #vamosoutdoors

I opened my storage unit today and was overcome with a feeling of excitement and flooded with memories like these! Anyone else stoked for winter!? This was an amazing day with awesome ladies, what started as a storm day that turned out to be beautiful. So much fun and so many high fives, it was enough to give ya carpal tunnel. ⛷️⛷️⛷️ @cailstorm2 @tlsippel @corilives . . . @crystalmountain @arcteryxseattle #crystalmountain #shejumps #skiing #celebratewild #accessyourpassion #dirtbagdreams #expertpowered #arcteryxseattle
Another epic mountain weekend in the bag! Kyle, Ryan and I took the Ingalls Creek approach to summit McClellan Peak (far left in the first photo) and hike the core zone. After some inclement weather Saturday, Sunday-summit-day was all time! We had the Crystal tarn all to ourselves, tasted success on McClellan despite some late season icy conditions on the NF and the enchantments were on full fall display. So happy to have access to this right in our back yard and stoked for the guys who sent their first scramble peak in style ❄️ #mcclellanpeak #enchantments #scamblepeak #bulgerlist #mountaineering #climbing #crosscountry #bushwhacking #fall #larches #alpinelakes #mountains #pnwonderland #ourpnw #rei1440project #pnwexplored #naturephotography #exploremore #celebratewild #highandwild #optoutside #outdoorproject #sundaysummitday
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
