Sunday funday on Mt. Elbert, finally tagged the Colorado state high point. Beautiful weather, a fun snow packed trail (even got a little glissading in), great friends to share it with ❤️. On one of Colorado’s busiest 14ers we had the summit to ourselves (a little snow will really shake out the riff raff). I even dragged up my @jetboil for some summit coffee (worth it). #exploremore #outsidetv #goatworthy #outdoorwomen #colorado #14er #mtelbert #explorecolorado #viewcolorado #hikecolorado #usinterior #usforestservice #highpoint #highpointers #womenwhohike #forceofnature #rei1440project #optoutside #colororadical #liveactivated #seekthestoke #otvadventures #livebravely
Cycling the Neighborhood From Skookum Falls to the White River Campground, it was good to get on my bike and ride into Mount Rainier National Park for my first visit ever.

Monday’s are like an uphill struggle - So hard to start but once it’s been started the rest of the way should be an easy climb. ———————————————— Get your climbing,crawling, & lighting gears for your vehicles at @aidenjamescustoms 📸 photo credit to @bigthai
A highlight of day two in Yosemite was a loop hike that took me from Glacier Point Road to The Fissures & Taft Point and then along the Pohono Trail to Roosevelt Point and on to Sentinel Dome. I did a clockwise, 5-mile loop in the afternoon so I could end up at the summit of Sentinel Dome for the sunset and the amazing, 360-degree views – with El Capitan to the west, Half Dome to the east, Vernal Falls to the southeast, and the Sierra Nevadas just beyond. I made it to the top of Sentinel Dome just before sunset, and soaked up the epic views for 45 minutes or so, while also enjoying this pillowy soft double IPA from Tired Hands, I Can’t Figure Out If It’s The End Or The Beginning, for the day’s deserving trail beer. . 📍: Sentinel Dome | Yosemite Valley | Yosemite National Park . 🍺: I Can’t Figure Out If It’s The End Or The Beginning, a delightful double IPA from Tired Hands. . . . . . #yosemite #yosemitevalley #sentineldome #yosemitenationalpark #glacialpoint #elcapitan #findyourpark #halfdome #hikemoreworryless #tiredhands #usnationalparks #usinterior #usforestservice #mypubliclands #visittheusa #publiclands #takeahike #everytrailconnects #traveldeeper #getoutstayout #livethemountainlife #brewwithaview #beerwithaview #getoutthere #optoutside #hikecalifornia #visitcalifornia #explorecalifornia #naturalcalifornia #wildcalifornia

Scouting Down Memory Trail A big reason I was excited to work with the White River Trails Crew was that I’d first set foot on their turf as a crew leader with Northwest Youth Corps. It was powerful to return to the Greenwater Lakes Trail, to trail haircuts, to dangerous river crossings, to repaired cribbing topped with tiny stones, to my first turnpike and bridge approach that I have Noah, Dan, and the crew’s help (so many full rock bags) to thank for. It was a joy to be back in the Norse Peak Wilderness and to see that our work still held.

Camp at Girard Ridge Historic Lookout - Shasta-Trinity National Forest. This place has some of the best unspoiled views of Mt. Shasta and Castle Crags State Park. Finally caught twilight on Mt. Shasta. “I consider the evening twilight on Mt.

Took the Mavic out to the Superstitions on Saturday - it was beautiful!
A sleeping giant coated with an eerie fog...seemed as if it could erupt at any minute. Amazing how the aftermath of a 30 year old eruption still remains. #mtsthelens #volcano #johnstonridgeobservatory #coldwaterlake #washington #usforestservice #optoutside #adventureawaits #letmetakeyoutothemountain
As we wind down from our Colorado vacation, we'd like to offer a shout out to the National Park Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Forest Rangers, and all the volunteers who preserve and protect our nation's natural resources. Many of my friends served our country bravely and honorably in the U.S. military to protect America. Don't miss the opportunity to explore the outdoors you so dutifully protected, and let the kid in you out! #usforestservice #nationalparks #outdoors #veterans #coloradorockies #colorado @myndeewoiton

Hiked two peaks today: Corte Madera and neighboring Los Pinos to the south. Talked with the lookout staff in the fire watch tower, and he showed me incredible images of lightning, rain systems, and fires he's spotted over the years. He's got a sweet setup, too. Corte Madera was beautiful as always with its granite sheers and pines and views of all the peaks I love. Catalina was visible today. . . #cortemadera #eaglenesting #lospinos #lospinoslookout #lospinoslookouttower #catalinaisland #santaanawinds #espinosatrail #lookouttower #hike #hiker #sandiegocounty #usforestservice #12miler #inthepines #lospinosroad #gotmyeyesonyousanjacinto

I keep seeing this place in my mind’s eye.
CAPTION THIS! … ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The U.S. Forest Service is noticing a new change in the way bears interact with humans. This season, bears are out in higher numbers, there are more females with their cubs -- and some have grown up to become too comfortable with humans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "A new type of food condition behavior, where some bears are learning how to scare people away to get their food,” U.S. Forest Service biologist Stephanie Coppeto said. “So, for example, they may approach a picnic table where (people) are eating. And people, their reaction is to obviously get away, and then the bear will eat the food." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the flip side, because some bears are getting used to humans, some people in turn think it is OK to get close and interact with the bear -- which is a big no-no. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you encounter a bear, Coppeto said to feel grateful for the natural experience. Keep your distance, don’t run away, face the bear, speak in a stern tone, clap, make eye contact and slowly back away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: Rocky Fennema ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Bears #SmarterThanTheAverageBear #Bear #BearCubs #MommaBears #Nature #Wildfire #LakeTahoe #NorCal #NorthernCalifornia #California #Tahoe #TahoeBasin #USFS #USForestService #ForestService

Quick trip to Crystal Peak - some decent crystals found

En Estados Unidos también tienen una reina: águila calva oteando en busca de presas desde un poste en una zona de lagunas... cuando echó a volar todas las aves que había en las lagunas huyeron despavoridas armando un jaleo tremendo mientras el águila las sobrevolaba... hasta que con un picado cazó su presa y se alejó a comer tranquilamente... impagable!!! 🔝📸🇺🇸🦅 #baldeagle #california #usforestservice #nationalforest #usa #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #wildlifephoto #wildlife_perfection #wilderness #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlife_lovers #wildlifeaddicts #wildlife_seekers #featured_wildlife #yourshotphotographer #natgeo #bbcearth #canon #canon70d #nature #naturephotography #naturephotographer #king_birds #nuts_about_birds

Rx burn at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal. 10+ miles walked, chased out some buffalo and deer, roasted a bunch of prairie rats, completed over 750 acres of scorched earth!

After wanting to visit for years, I finally made it to Yosemite. Timing my visit for fall, when there are more manageable crowd sizes, worked out well. I logged 16 miles by foot on my first day in the park. After hiking the Mist Trail up to Vernal and Nevada Falls, and then the John Muir Trail back down to the valley — for sunset, I headed over to Stoneman Meadow on the valley floor to watch the sun’s last rays put on a show on the face of Half Dome. A deserving trail beer from Forest & Main completed the moment. . . . . . #yosemite #yosemitevalley #halfdome #yosemitenationalpark #findyourpark #usnationalparks #usinterior #usforestservice #mypubliclands #visittheusa #publiclands #takeahike #everytrailconnects #traveldeeper #getoutstayout #livethemountainlife #travelstoke #travelawesome #getoutthere #optoutside #hikecalifornia #visitcalifornia #explorecalifornia #caliexplored #naturalcalifornia #wildcalifornia #keepitwild #igerscalifornia #hikemoreworryless #californiaroadtrip

By far one of my favorite campsites Boulder Basin. The top of a mountain off a dirt trail in Idyllwild. The entire campsite was empty except one other group. It was wonderful.
