Rainer has a passion for exploring new places and climbing new peaks... I’m excited to see where it takes us. . . #monumentmountain #massachusetts #exploring #nature #peakbagging #familyadventures #explore

Argentina - Day 8 . Another night of great sleep, I’m on a roll. And I’ve learned to put the buff over my mouth while I slept to reduce night time loud coughing. Wake up time was 5.45am. I packed my things and went to a cooked hot breakfast at 6.30am. Again a dream to have hot food made for me by the local cook. Food was basic, but HOT! BTW, I finally figured out how to use my -30F sleeping bag, it is most clothes off. I tried wearing my ultra light down jacket first and it took forever to warm a just a little bit. Once I took the down off, with the next 30 mins, it started getting really toasty. Back to day 8. I started feeling better than day 7. And it seemed like I was back to Utah health. It was an 8 hour trek to the base camp, gaining 3,300 ft approx. Since I felt good, for the 3rd time since I met my guide, I didn’t listen to his advice to go slow. I just marched ahead at probably 3 miles per hour. Walking ahead of German guy and the guide most of the time and I just wait for them every once in a while. By the 4 hour, my energy completely died, like massively, the rest of the trek, was SO HARD, towards the end I was probably moving at 1/3 of a mile per hour. My heart was beating so hard from the 4th hour on. I was breathing so hard too. I guess I wasn’t as fit as I had hoped. The thing is, the distance and the elevation gain today, I’ve done them several times in the US, and 3/4 times have been perfectly fine, Mt Rainier was the exception. So I totally didn’t expect to hurt so bad. When I got to Basecamp at 7hour 10 mins, I was so dead. I went into our food tent and just collapsed on the floor for the next couple of hours. My heart beat was measure at 123 even after an hour of doing nothing, and my blood oxygen level was 91, which was good. . #nature #outside #outdoor #mothernature #naturelovers #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #hiking #hiker #trails #adventure #yolo #mountains #peakbagging #summit #Mountaineering #summer #aconcagua #argentina #parqueprovincialaconcagua #climbing #highaltitute #basecamp #aconcaguabasecamp
Argentina - Day7 . The night before, day 6, was when i finally solved a bunch of problems. I finally figured out how to sleep on a thermorest and not have aching lower pack pain, the keeps me up the entire night. Google search said to put pillow under knee if lying on my back, and pillow between knees if lying on my side. So that was my first great night sleep for several night, and the first great night sleep for the German guy and my Argentina guide. Basically if I didn’t sleep, they didn’t sleep, because I still had a cold and I cough relentlessly, it’s the dry air. . Day 7 was when we arrived in Aconcagua National Park. My guide taught me to put my buff over my mouth to humidify the air I’m breathing in, and that dramatically dropped how often I was coughing really hard. By now my runny nose had slow to a craw, but was still happening several times per hour. It was 3 hours trek in to Confluencia camp. Trek was not too difficult, I was slight faster than other days previous, but still much slower than Utah speed. So it seemed I was recovering some what more from the flu. Also the night before was when I finally gave up and started taking Diamox to cope with high altitude. I read about the symptoms online and when I woke up in the morning, I felt a constantly tingly/vibrating sensation the entire day on my face and my fingers. I’m familiar with this sensation from other drugs I took years ago, so I wasn’t too fazed by it. Just slightly annoying. At the camp I had my blood oxygen level checked by the doctors, she gave me the all clear. I had 91 blood oxygen at 11,000 ft and my heart was beating at 109, which seemed really high compared to others in their 70s and 90s. The camp was a dream, not quite glamping, and not quite camping. Something in between. . #nature #outside #outdoor #mothernature #naturelovers #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #hiking #hiker #trails #adventure #yolo #mountains #peakbagging #summit #Mountaineering #summer #aconcagua #argentina #parqueprovincialaconcagua #climbing #highaltitute #confluencia
Summiting Sharlands Peak has been in the back of my mind since my first visit to Frenchmans Cap a few years ago. Its formidable towers loom high above the trail and inspire awe from all who pass below. When I finally made the ascent over Christmas it was much easier than we had anticipated but every bit as awesome and the weather conditions provided us with stellar views. . . . . #tasmania #discovertasmania #Instatassie #seetasmania #tassiepics #tassiestyle #hobartandbeyond #tassielife #tasmaniaparks #australiagram #keeptassiewild #thisistassie #bushwalking #worldheritage #tassiegram #landscapephotography #claimfreedom #campvibes #agameoftones #adventurecalling #KeepItWild #earth_deluxe #optoutside #awesupply #wanderfolk #lifeoutdoors #visualcollective #peakbagging #mountainculture #rawpeaks
We were surprised by the amount of 'no responses' to our friendly, polite 'hello's'. I have never experienced that outdoors before. Regardless, it was a great day. I never regret a day in the outdoors. . . . . . . . . . #wanderlust #trailmagazine #alpkit #findyourepic #yorkshire #osmaps #mudandroutes #countryside #adventuretime #mountains #thefrozendivide #mountainlife #intothewild #nationalpark #peakbagging #hillwalking #outdoorslife #hikingadventures #optoutside #sunset #autumn #naturephotography #hiking #liveoutdoors #wilderness #freshairclub #outdoors #natureaddict #ukpotd #natureporn
I’m on top of the mountain and I’m never coming down.
My most difficult challenge of 2018 was getting a picture of Delicate Arch without tourists in it.

This weekend's trek up the snowy slopes of Little Lawson was a great workout, on a perfectly calm and warm day. And the views from the top? Kind of like being on top of the world. . . . #littlelawson #southendoflawson #explorealberta #hikealberta #kananaskis #seekthetrails #snowshoeing #canadianrockies #themountainsarecalling #mountaincultureelevated #summitjunkie #peakbagging #hikingadventures #dailyhiveyyc #narcitycalgary
So I decided to hike this bad boy by myself today. This is the summit and it scares the shit out of me. It’s small and jagged and it was windy up there today. My goal is to keep hiking it until the summit doesn’t scare me...and to continuously decrease my time going up. Today I cut about 25 minutes off last weeks time and did it up and down a little over an hour. 2019 goals: Facing fears and winning. #facingfears #notallwhowanderarelost #arizonalife #climbing #itsagoodlife #oldpeoplehiking #imaybeoldbutimnotdead #piestewapeak #sixpackofpeaks #azsixpackofpeaks #hike #phoenix #arizona #peakbagging #wander #explore #adventure #milesonthemove #hikingadventures #optoutside #butdidyoudie
Ventured outside to somewhere different yesterday for a short hike up Terri Peak. Loved the clouds and the fact that we could see forever! 💛 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #adventureseeker #caliliving #californialove #adventureisoutthere #outside #calilove #socal #cali #california #goodafternoon #january #optoutside #nature #cloudscape #cloudstagram #clouds #winterincalifornia #afternoon #goexplore #wanderlust #morenovalley #terripeak #peakbagging #hiking #hike #outdoorlife #greatoutdoors

📸Photo by @ryanbudd 📸 From our trip a couple months ago. I remember saying we all had to stop so that Ryan could quickly grab a photo here 😅. Such a great view from this ridge.
Don’t forget to stop and sniff the flowers 🌸 And yes, I know it’s currently winter. But I look damn cute in this pic so had to share.
Descending the uppermost north ridge of La Malinche with #popocatepetl and #iztaccihuatl behind.

Sunday’s Hike from #sierramadre to #mtwilson (5,712ft. elevation) 15.4 miles, 4900 ft. of elevation gain and 30/40 temps. A beautiful but grinding hike and a amazing workout! Due to Government Shutdown had to hike the Little Santa Anita Cyn. Trail which adds another 600ft of elevation gain. Observatory and Chantry Flats closed! 🤬 Very happy to get to hike in some snow. Rare for Mt. Wilson! The goal of going higher continues... #california #socalhiker #hikersofinstagram #hiking #optoutside #marathontraining #summitseekers #peakbagging #goinghigher #hokaoneone
Without naming anyone specific, one of us has a lot of work to do on their snow-beard game. 🤭
On a day like today you have to chase summits! Stellar day with an amazing crew!
Nose to the grindstone today, but reminding myself of mountain runs with the summer wildflowers🌻 . . . . . . #mondaymotivation #wildflowers #vitamind #summeradventures #exploreoutside #adventureon #naturetime #peakbagging #connectwithnature #getoutandexplore #runon #hikemontana
Most Mondays I wish to be back on the hills, but not sure that's the case today when Saturdays weather did this to our faces.

Fav pics from a 12.75 mile (figure-8) 3-peak loop hike with 3,956 feet total elevation gain to Mt Lowe from Inspiration Point from Echo Mountain starting from the Cobb Estate in Altadena, CA. Sun Jan 13, 2019. This was a sunny hike that turned cloudy and chilly but no rain thankfully. It was also a great workout. #t1d #taylorstrong #diabetes #hikingadventures #mountains #nature #outdoors #sangabrielmountains #hiking #adventure #peakbagging #dayhike
First light on the Cap, one of Tassie's finest chunks of rock. Boxing day, 2018.

Pink and green power rangers made it up another mountain! One of my favorites, Mount Baldy via the Baldy Bowl, for some weekend peak bagging. 🏔💜💚 • #powerrangers #baldybowl #mountbaldy #sixpackofpeaks #socalhiking #hiking #socalhiking #mountaineering #hikingadventures #socialhiker #peakbagging #peakbagger #goatworthy
View of Rainier from enroute Emmons glacier Planning on doing it again this year, early may as an overnight (if interested in joining, let me know) Beautiful blue bird day with the mountain forming its own weather pattern and the moon still lingering around at sunset Personally, I like the Emmons route over the DC route #ourpnw
Hike: Glendora Mountain Distance: 2.02miles Elevation gain: ~200ft (not including roller-coastering which brings it up to almost double) >>If I had to describe this hike in two words: Wear pants. This hike is a lesson in bushwhacking, route finding, and poop avoiding. So. Much. Poop. Even though it's a short hike, it's dynamic and the views are absolutely worth it. Stunning views of Baldy. Route finding is relatively straightforward. Head West and then South along the ridge trying to find the path of least resistance. Summit log at the peak shows this to be a modestly popular hike, but I didn't see a single person on the trail. I had another hike planned for today along the Monroe Truck Trail, but clouds were moving in and I wanted to get home. Will definitely do again after the next batch of storms . . . #hiking #angelesnationalforest #peakbagging #sangabrielmountains #glendoramountain #glendora #nobodyhikesinla #danshiking #socalhikes #socalhiking #lahikes #lahiking #lahiker #outdoors

No words can describe how gorgeous Mt Baldy is in the snow. I never liked this hike until this weekend. Now, it’s one of my favs! Next time Im definitely bringing my snowboard up for some backcountry shredding! #mtbaldy #sixpackofpeaks #52hikechallenge #hike2 #peakbagging #sierraskihut #winterhiking #girlswhohikela
Yesterday tackled Flat Iron in 4.75 hrs, more of a rock climb than a hike at 7mi with 2900ft elevation gain.. hate heights and with my bulky heavy backpack, zero daylight to spare, and no time for breaks was second guessing why I even attempted this... but @rachaelneel said we were doing the whole thing, so we did the whole thing :D . . #flatiron #lostdutchmen #superstitionmountains #apachetrail #apachejunction #hike #backpacking #arizona #arizonatrails #hikearizona #optoutside #outdoors #outdoorcollective #wildernessculture #ladylike #atclassof2019 #peakbagging #trailrunning #osprey #zseat #buff #womenwhohike
Psalm 23 1-4 "The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
