Throwback to this year’s high country hunt. This was taken right before we walked in. The rifle in the picture was my grandfather’s. It’s a Weatherby #markV Lazermark chambered in .270 Weatherby. It’s a special rifle for the obvious reason that is was passed down to me. What makes it more special is that the rifle and the #leupold scope were manufactured in 1982. The same year as my birth. #weatherby #weatherbymarkv #weatherbylazermark #leupold #outdoorsmans #vortexoptics #pasaytenwilderness #highcountrybucks #meateater #publiclandowner #publiclandhunter #backcountryhuntersandanglers
Detours aren't so bad sometimes. This was not one of those times but it was nice to see the sun one last time. #HolmanFireDetour #pct2018 #imsoakedandcold #fall #pasaytenwilderness
I've been raking leaves for 3 hours now and my yard still looks like death 😖😂 It's that time of year where everything is brown.💩 So it made me look through a few summer photos, this was such a fun pack trip! 🌲🌿🌳 #summer2018 #pasaytenwilderness

Spruce Grouse, caught checking out my campsite on a remote backpacking trip in the Pasayten Wilderness (north central WA on the US/CA border) from earlier this summer. At the time, I didn’t know what this bird this was, lucky to have seen it at the southern end of its range. #sprucegrouse #grouse #pasayten #pasaytenwilderness #backpacking #birdphotography #birders #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #pnwwonderland #audubon #audubonsociety #birds #birdsofinstagram #photography #photography #washingtonstate #upperleft #upperleftusa #wildlife #wildlifephotograph #fujifilm #shotonfuji #fujifilmxseries #fujifilmx

The old Pasayten airstrip, built in the early 1930s and abandoned in 1968 when the Pasayten Wilderness was established. The northern portion is being reclaimed by forest, leaving less than half of its original length of 3400’ still clear. This view looks to the southwest. That’s the middle fork of the Pasayten River stretching out to the left distance. This image was made during the course of a photographic flight conducted in late January of 2017. #aerialphotography #mountains #wilderness #pasaytenwilderness #northcascades #jaggedridgeimaging #abandonedairstips #flying
We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness - and call it love - true love. ~Robert Fulghum . . . The Western Pasque Flower (anemone occidentalis) is also a little weird, but one of my true alpine/subalpine favorites. They are a little bit like Dr Seuss weird. That’s why I love them so! . . . #haha #imalittleweird #yourealittleweird #lifesalittleweird #mutuallysatisfyingweirdness #thatswhyiloveyou #truelove #thisgoesforfriendstoo #andintentionalfamily #lovemytribe #westernpasqueflower #anemoneoccidentalis #normalisboring #adventuremore #backpackingwashington #northcascades #pasaytenwilderness #gratefulforeveryday

Rain or shine we can’t wait to get back out there this week! The PNW has been way to kind to us this fall with days like this. Hope we can get some more bluebird days in the mountains after this week! #washington #northcascades #pasaytenwilderness #overland #dispersedcamping #camping #wilderness #publiclands #toyota #4runner #trdsemipro #4runnersofwashington #tepuitents #arboffroad #homeiswhereyouparkit

From another Sunday in the church of the mountains... #pasaytenwilderness #backcountrybackyard #pnwonderland
Was it the last blast of summer this previous Sunday? T-shirt weather at 7500', the highest road you can drive in WA. I took Quincy larch hunting, and we were about a week late, but this was fair trade for the corn maze festival last weekend. #slatepeak makes my fourth fire lookout this summer, and the first under 20 miles of hiking (try 0.5 miles). We got to play in some snow, take some good snaps, and I got super inspired for some ridge runs in the #pasaytenwilderness up here! Followed up with the harrowing drive (for a kid) back to #highway20 and a quick jaunt to #cutthroatlake to cap the day, just for old-times sake. The sun went behind the mountains, the lake was frozen and vacant of other hikers by 4:30pm, and we listened to the beautiful, eerie echo chamber while munching our sandwiches from the @mazamastore. What a fantastic way to close out the summer with the best kid ever. Thanks for the 24 hour adventure, @qkitty16 !!
With births and weddings behind me for awhile, I ventured up high today for my first solo mountain trail run in ages. . Don’t miss your chance to enjoy this glorious fall weather. #notamillennial #selfiefail #pasaytenwilderness #pasaytenpup #hartspass #windypass #solo #trailrunning #okanogancounty #okanoganwenatcheenationalforest #fall #getoutside #running #ranchdogdax #yurt #pct #pct2018

Another week alone in the Pasayten Wilderness in search of the elusive 3point or better Mulie. No luck yet again, so instead of pictures of meat hanging in trees here are some scenery and camp pics as well as yet another unsuccessful hunter selfie. See you next year Pasayten #pasaytenwilderness #pnwonderland #seekoutside #meateater #mountainhouse

Pasayten Wilderness + Alpenglow
Larch Pass was aptly named! These stunning trees are deciduous conifers and produce the most beautiful splashes of color across the Pasayten Wilderness. • How many of you have been out chasing larches?

Taking it to higher places...maybe by the time it snows I’ll be all caught up on posting photos from last season. 😂#northcascades #pasaytenwilderness #earnyourturns #backcountryskiing
10/3/18: Traveling through the Pasayten wilderness in Northern Washington. With autumn in full bloom, I came across a golden grove of aspen trees, a favorite of mine in the world of dendrology. Aspens grow rhizomatically, meaning that you won’t find them evenly dispersed through a forest. They’ll appear in large clumps (or ‘stands’ as I like to call them). • The largest organism in the world was once thought to be an aspen network in Central Utah (Fish Lake National Forest). I think when I found this out, I lost my mind a bit because I thought that was such a cool phenomenon. • #pasaytenwilderness #pct2018 #pctig

Fall is in full swing in the North Cascades! Such an awesome overnight trip to Snowy Lakes with my main boys @finished_foodie and @riggs_eats_grass. Riggs did amazing on his first backpacking trip; he saw some Larches, got snowed on, and didn't run off into the woods OR pee in the tent. Proud of you bud, I can't wait until you're carrying all of our gear!

Just like that, summer was here and gone. Then I blinked and September blew by. Take your time October 🍁🍂 . . . #sunnypass #pasaytenwilderness #packtrip #horsebackisbest
Golden Larches along the Pacific Crest Trail in the North Cascades National Park. I love when I have a chance to hike on the PCT. Every part I have been on has been the best maintained trails I've ever been on. It was rather cool this day and the further up in elevation I went it got colder. It's fine when you are moving but to stop and take photos after having been sweating that's when you get cold. But this place was so worth the sacrifice and effort. It's definitely at the top of my favorite hikes list. 10/3/17 . #northcascadesnationalpark #pacificcresttrail #larchtrees #okanoganwenatcheenationalforest #larchmadness #mysoloadventure #notallwhowanderarelost #upperleftusa #Washingtonstate #explore #adventuretime #adventurer #getoutside #wildernessculture #nationalforest #wanderlust #outdoorphotography #pnwdiscovered #upperleftusa #pnwisbest #theNWadventure #landscapephotomag #outdoorphotomag #washingtonexplored #gearupforadventure #fotopro #staywild #yourshotphotographer #pnwisbeautiful #pnwpride #pasaytenwilderness
Bluebird days can’t be beat, neither can Harts pass terrain. Stoked to spend more time in the Pasayten as the seasons change. Azurite and Mount Ballard in the background are calling me. #backcountryskiing #pasaytenwilderness Thank you : sophiabea Your snapshots look good!!
PCT Day 160: Snow my god! Just when I thought this trail magic couldn't get any better, I was given a safety pin to hold the broken zipper down on my rain jacket. I almost cried. A safety pin is nothing until you don't have one. Once I finally tore myself away, our last fire reroute before Canada started off with snow but was gone by the time we reached lower into the valley. The mud and rain was a lot less fun but still better than the horrible no good very bad day of rain known as last Saturday. My back was hurting and I was being moody towards the end of the day. I feel bad for stopping early, especially after never leaving the trail magic last night, but I don't regret wasting time playing in the snow this morning. I'll be in Canada tomorrow! #pct #pctig #pacificcresttrail #pct2018 #thruhike #hiking #backpacking #thruhike #snow #washington #pasaytenwilderness

We walked to Black Lake for our anniversary and got the place to ourselves. Threatened rain all day but we stayed dry. That lake is aptly named. #chewuch #mwthowvalley #pasaytenwilderness #pnw
Had a great time a couple weeks ago hiking and hunting thru the #pasaytenwilderness with dad and @scottmiller7 the views were glorious, the abandoned pasayten airfield was a great accomplishment of a 40 mile hike to reach and back and a memory we will always have
It's that larch time of year.

Back from the Pasayten a bit worse for wear but safe. The weather was beautiful for the most part, and the best part was meeting Perry and his three pack goats! #autumn #larch #golden #pasaytenwilderness #wilderness #hiking #backpacking #nikon #nikond3400 #1020mm
