โ€œAnd at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparklingโ€ - Shanti โค๏ธ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿพ . . .

just now realizing as i post this that the last photo of myself was in the same pose but decided to say screw it cause this was my favorite shot from yesterday and maybe itโ€™s my signature . . . #oregoncoast #oregonexplored #sonya6000 #wanderlust #exploremore #optoutside #traildiaries #pnwonderland #pnwestisbest #wishyouwerenorthwest #adventureisoutthere #wanderwomeninc #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #sheexplores #herpnwlife . ๐Ÿ“ธ: @skettimayne
Today was the first day in 2019 I smelled spring ๐Ÿ˜ after being sick last week we decided that we need some fresh air and went for a ride. I didnโ€˜t post much on insta recently, not because I didnโ€˜t bike (although I didnโ€˜t bike enough for sure...) but because I was freezing, it was dark, it was muddy or it was raining... but today was definetly worth a picture ๐Ÿ˜ . . . #ridebikesbehappy #wintersun #taunustrails #altkรถnig #mtbgirl #mountainbikediaries #trailstrailstrails #rideandsmile #surfingtrails #soenduro #enduromtb #mtbwomen #mtblove #lifebehindbars #traildiaries #canyonstrive #mycanyon #canyonbikes

The enchantment of winter hiking for me wears off after the first few trips of the season. Snow is especially charming around the holidays, but after that it loses its magic. I got outside today but I didn't see blue skies and I couldn't run and jump on any rock I wanted to because they're all covered and I was too busy pushing all the damn snow around under my boots. On the plus side, I was adequately prepared and surprisingly comfy in my gear combination, and at least I still got some cool pics. I call this the Wonky Tree Branch Collection. . . #winterhike #hike #trail #beautahful #lifelevated #choosemountains #wasatchmountains #optoutside #utahoutdoors #hikeutah #wilderness #snow #trees #winter #weather #weekendvibes #traildiaries

This pup keeps me going. Even when we've been looking at corn fields from a bicycle for 2 weeks and it won't stop raining. He's still so excited to be outside, to be roaming. He reminds me that I should be excited too. ๐Ÿงฆ ๐Ÿงฆ ๐Ÿงฆ ๐Ÿงฆ ๐Ÿงฆ #wilderritzgoestowashington #throwback #thenortherntierbybike #adventurecycling #biketocamp #sato #potcake #shepherd #pitmixagram #ferociouspitbull #kurgotogether #adventuredognation #adventuredog #mydogismy #inspiration #becauseofmydog #inspire #inspirationnation #exploringwithdogs #travelingwithdogs #traildiaries #trail #doglovers #bikepacking #bikepackingwithdogs
didnโ€™t get many shots of myself on this hike because the wind was so strong my tripod tipped over and i was too scared to risk it as the hike went on (thankfully no lenses were harmed in the taking of this photo) . . . #adventureisoutthere #columbiarivergorge #sonya6000 #oregonexplored #pnwonderland #pnwestisbest #wishyouwerenorthwest #advancedselfie #optoutside #exploremore #wanderlust #traildiaries #wanderwomeninc #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #sheexplores #herpnwlife

when youโ€™re dressed appropriately for the weather with lots of layers but then climb a hill and start sweating so you strip off said layers and stand still for about 2 seconds to take a picture and all the sweat freezes and you immediately regret that decision . . . #sonya6000 #pnwestisbest #pnwonderland #wishyouwerenorthwest #oregonexplored #oregoncoast #advancedselfie #wanderlust #exploremore #optoutside #traildiaries #sheexplores #wanderwomeninc #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #herpnwlife
Long Trail Day 23 (10.1 miles) We survive the sub-freezing overnight temperatures, though I have to remove my too-tight gloves sometime during the night. As I wipe the grogginess from my face I realize my left-hand pointer finger has swollen to nearly double its normal size, the location of a small cut I got on day 2 of the hike. Infection. Nothing I can do about that now. Canary and I hike together most of the day, Stokes and Soups about a half hour ahead of us. We cross 2 small peaks, Peru Peak and Bromley Mountain. We arrive in Manchester Center, our next resupply, by 3:30 and score a hitch into town with a man we from then on dub "the Abercrombie model." (@thatdudechrismack ) After dropping our stuff at the Chalet Motel we get another hitch into town to an outfitter to figure out what gear we need to survive a winter hike. Then JON MEETS US in town and drives us all over the place for laundry, food, alcohol and he's the best and I'm so happy he's back and my new friends and my old friend are all in one place. After dinner Stokes and I sit on the bed trading a pint of Ben and Jerry's and Canary's leftover lasagna back and forth and I decide she is my spirit animal. I have to wear my beanie because it's too cold to be eating ice cream without winter clothing on... but I'm not going to not eat ice cream. โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  @jon.mc.donald @annafornili @pinataslayer #longtrail #longtrail2018 #thruhike #thruhiker #backpacking #backpacker #vermont #outdoorwomen #women #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrail2018 #bluesky #hikertrash #resupply #manchestercenter #hikingfamily #tramily #trail #trailupdate #traildiaries #greenmountains #hikerhunger #trailnorth
Long Trail Day 22 (15.8 miles) Diggory stays in camp, he's taking a bus back to Quebec. I leave camp with Canary. We catch up with Stokes a few miles down the trail, and not long after Soups comes up behind us. We hike through a tunnel of spruce trees, all in a row. Most of the day is flat, with an incline so gradual we can't even tell we're climbing. We discover the low tonight is in the low 20s. Both Canary and I have sleeping bags rated to only 30ยฐ. When we get to Peru Peak Shelter we immediately start strategizing on how to survive a night outside in below-freezing temperatures. We hang our rain-flys over the shelter opening to keep our heat in the shelter. We line up our sleeping pads and bags all in a row. I go to sleep in 2 long-sleeve wool shirts, a short-sleeve wool shirt, hoody, and a puffy jacket, with 2 pairs of leggings and rain pants on my bottom half. I put on gloves and my Beanie and snuggle down in my sleeping bag. We each keep a granola bar in our sleeping bags to eat during the night if we start to get cold. The dark is intermittently filled with the sound of us eating our way through the night. โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  #longtrail #longtrail2018 #thruhike #thruhiker #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #womeninthewild #womendooutdoors #vermont #hikertrash #adventure #explore #exploremore #exploretogether #hikingbuddies #nature #tramily #trail #trailupdate #traildiaries #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrail2018 #hike #backpackers #backpacking

South Wales Road Trip - I took three days a few months back and visited a couple of fantastic riding spots. This doesnโ€™t even touch the surface of what there is to ride in the area.

Long Trail Day 20 (10.6 miles) These 2 photos are taken on the same mountain within a few hours of each other. The first is the North face, the second one the south face. After almost 2 full days of no hiking, we are rested and overfed. We immediately begin ascending Killington Peak, the second highest mountain in Vermont. The ground is covered in 4 inches of snow and it doesn't take long for my shoes to soak through. The summit is located along a steap spur trail that includes a slippery rock scramble. I am informed by other hikers that there is no view today and the trail is sketchy so I elect to skip it. We're back to hiking alone and the sun is shining and it's not too cold. Dobby stays leashed, though I let it drag along the ground, because there are reports of porcupines in the area and I don't doubt he would try to eat one. We stop at Governor Clement shelter and make a fire in the shelter's fireplace just so I can prove to myself I can make one. I start to set up camp when a male hiker, Diggory, comes into camp. Soon he is followed by Stokes and Soups. They are AT flip-floppers trying to make it back to Virginia before winter. I feel like I'm meeting celebrities. They form a circle with their tents and I buck up the courage to ask if I can join them. We make a nice little tent city and are joined after dark by the fourth person in their party, Canary. I'm able to move my tent over enough for her to join the circle. I fall asleep to the sound of Stokes reading one of the final chapters from Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone aloud. I think I've found my people. @pinataslayer @annafornili โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  #longtrail #longtrail2018 #appalachiantrail #at2018 #appalachiantrail2018 #traildiaries #trail #update #thruhike #thruhiker #backpacking #tramily #trailfamily #vermont #adventuredognation #adventuredog #mydogismy #hikingbuddy #becauseofmydog #winter #fall #killingtonpeak #mountain #hike #harrypotter #nature #photography #landscape #naturephotography #trailnorth

Long Trail Day 16 (13.9 miles) Jon gets picked up off the trail after 3 miles. He knew he'd have to leave the trail for work but with the increasingly cold nights and eternally wet shoes, he decides to get off the trail a few days early. Hiking with another person has been amazing. I've only adventured solo previously and having another person there to have your back and encourage you is invaluable. I hope he will come back on trail but I have no assurance I'll see him again. Dobby keeps looking back over the next few miles, waiting for Jon to come around the last bend in the trail. I can physically feel the heaviness in my heart as we walk away, the feeling increasing with each step further away from our friend. The trail does that; friends are made quickly but kept for always. I think about the offer of a ride Jon made me. I think about quitting. I could tell people winter came too soon, that I'm not prepared for a winter hike. I wouldn't be wrong. But I said I was going to do this, so barring danger to me or Dobby, now I'm going to do it. โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  #longtrail #longtrail2018 #thruhike #thruhiker #hikingwithdogs #dogsthathike #exploring #exploringwithdogs #travelingwithdogs #adventuredog #adventuredognation #outdoorwomen #trail #traildiaries #trailupdate #trailbuddy #hikertrash #becauseofmydog #mydogismy #encouragement #nature #photography #withgalaxy

skipped a hike this weekend in favor of a concert and with going home for christmas next week iโ€™m not sure how long itโ€™ll be before i get back on the trail, so iโ€™m dreaming of this perfect pastel morning on the coast . . . #adventureisoutthere #wanderlust #traildiaries #optoutside #exploremore #sonya6000 #pnwonderland #pnwestisbest #wishyouwerenorthwest #oregonexplored #oregoncoast #capelookout
Long Trail Day 12 (5.5 miles) Woke up to insane amounts of rain, but we know we only have 6 miles into TOWN. Dobby tries to get himself adopted into a family that won't make him hike in the rain. The owner of the Hyde Away Inn is kind enough to pick us up and bring us to the Inn, she even let's us check in early. She politely rolls the windows down without mentioning how much we smell. Jon hasn't showered in 11 days and ladies and gents, he needs it. I'm sure I smell wonderful because I'm a lady. We rifle through the hiker box and I almost poop my pants and Jon let's me shower first. The Inn offers us bikes to take into town where we stuff our faces at Mad Taco and resupply at Shaw's. We ride back to the Inn, where we eat an entire package of double-stuffed oreos and milk before ordering burgers from the Inn's restaurant. And that's how you nero. โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  โ†  #longtrail #longtrail2018 #thruhike #thruhiker #hikingculture #zeroday #mountainview #vermont #trail #traildiaries #hikertrash #wesmell #hydeawayinn #waitsfield #waitsfieldvt #trailmagic #hiking #hikeyourhike #neroday #sunset #fall #fallcolors #mountainbabes #allthefood #hikerhunger
