Saying goodbye to Summer. As the alpine gets first dusting of snow and the leaves start to change, I’m reminded to enjoy each last bit of green mountain meadows and fresh summer air. Who else is excited for snow sports?! ⛷ // Photo taken on the trail to Cooper Spur via Eliot Glacier Trail. St Helens, Rainier and Adams in the distance. One of my favorite trails in the Mt. Hood Wilderness
Look up in cities, look up in forests. Just always be looking up.
Pacific Northwest is as much a style and mindset as it is a location
I'm eating peanut butter cherrios with almond milk and a banana for breakfast. What are you eating?

My grandparents did over 150 scuba dives together, they fished together, they hunted together. Mostly in Oregon. My dad was basically born an Eagle Scout and he remains a mountain man at 64. He just did a 10 day Hells Canyon elk hunt and is about to hike the PCT for a good while. He instilled a relentless passion for the outdoors in me. I am attempting to do the same with my 3 young kids.
What did your grandparents hand down that is instilled in you?
An all-night photo and hiking adventure leads to getting to see the Pleiades, my favorite star cluster, above Shuksan as hints of sunrise began to appear. People have favorite star clusters in the #nightsky
, right? 😂🌌
How was Crater Lake almost one month ago already? ❤️
1937 Airomobile. Love the tail fin and airplane look of this car. One would think while driving it, it could actually fly!

Late day summer sun on Mount Hood in Oregon. Before our travels, and coming from Colorado, I had never really experienced stratovolcanos. They’re amazing to see. Just these massive singular peaks that seem to come out of nowhere.

Showcasing a little summer vibes before fall officially hits Saturday. I loved this short hike and the bright green & pink-like colors mixing together throughout the trail. There were great views of a few little lakes along the way and of course amazing views of Mt. Rainier at the peak and throughout the trail. I just love this national park so much.
Crazy to think our colors will be turning very soon (and some trails already have!). Super excited to hike Maple Pass Loop & Blue Lake but can't decide if it will be this weekend or next. Maybe next weekend to make sure larches are closer to full swing. I get a little worried in October since snow is unpredictable & might cover up the fall foliage but would also love to do a light snow covered hike soon before it gets too crazy. If we don't go to the North Cascades this weekend I have a list of trails to chose from closer to home for this weekend's hike to get a teaser of beautiful fall colors already in bloom. Any of my friends in-state are always welcome to join, just dm me! Autumn is such a beautiful time of year! Please do yourself a favor and make sure to go on at least one fall colored hike and/or larch march before the season ends!
