I remember, do you?
Missing the snow this winter, but if it’s not going to come then I’m fine with it warming up so I can get after my bucket list for the summer. Also, the San Juans suck and you shouldn’t go.
Wilderness. So hot right now

🎶Just around the river bend🎶 In all seriousness I'm trying to figure out how to better allocate my time in life. Juggling work, fun, PNWOW, chores, and relationships can be hard and sometimes I feel like I drop the ball in certain areas. I've been writing more diligently in my planner to see if I can find the balance that works for me. The best I have come up with so far is one day at a time. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pnwoutdoorwomen #herPNWlife #wildernessculture #upperleftexplorers #liveyouradventure #choosemountains #weareallexplorers #womenwhoexplore #stepintothewild #thenwadventure #departedoutdoors #upperleftusa #wanderwashington #ourcamplife #goatworthy #thehikemovement #bestofthenorthwest #wearethewild #RIMBY #womenwhohike #optoutside #washingtontrails #wildadventurelife #nrthwst #findyourpark #radparks #livewylder #modernoutdoorswoman #werehikers #forceofnature
📷 Source: @womenwhohike It’s Trail Tuesday…and a New Year here at @WomenWhoHike ! So, I @Im_NicoleMarie think there is no better time to talk about safety and survival basics while on the trail. When it comes to hiking, no matter where or how far you’re going, you should always carry the 10 Essentials. These are basic safety standbys than you can and should throw in your pack when going out into the woods or even a close urban hike. So, what are the 10 Essentials? They are: 1 Navigation (map and compass) 2 Sun protection (sunglasses and sunscreen) 3 Insulation (extra clothing) 4 Illumination (headlamp/flashlight) 5 First-aid supplies 6 Fire (waterproof matches/lighter/candles) 7 Repair kit and tools 8 Nutrition (extra food) 9 Hydration (extra water) 10 Emergency shelter When it comes to these 10 items there is much to browse and choose from these days and there are also items that pull double duty as well as items that are budget friendly. Here are some of my favorite things that have become my go-tos when packing up for a hike: -@alltrails App -@garmin In Reach Explorer -@coola tinted SPF 30 -@smartwool mid layer -@blackdiamond headlamp -@adventuremedicalkits weekender kit -SOL Fire Lite Kit -@leathermantools multi tool -@clifbar and @guenergylabs gels -@lifestraw Go Bottle & Personal Water Filter & @guenergylabs Hydration Tabs -SOL Emergency Bivy For more about the 10 Essentials and other items I rely on for the trail and backpacking, visit our website and ‘Gear Reviews’ section. There you will find items I have tried and tested over the years for getting outdoors.

Finally made it out to the Hollywood Reservoir. Amazing that it can be so quiet and peaceful here surrounded by this huge city.

On our first snowshoe experience I got a little overly excited when we found these little guys. It was a blast how quickly these birds swooped down to land on your hand in the hopes you had a little snack they could grab.
Spending a 24 hours on Mount Rainier allowed me to appreciate things I have rushed past when trying to get in as many miles as possible before the gate closed. I spent a full hour waiting for the sunset and appreciating the graceful lines of the snow carved into the slopes. As the shadows grew longer, the scalloped edges became more dramatic. Not to mention, views of Adams, Mt. St. Helens and Hood were all visible from this little knoll. I think I know where I want to pitch my tent next time... . . . . . . . . . #outdoorwomen #adventureanywhere #getoutside #greettheoutdoors #optoutside #wildernesspeople #foryourmountaine #pnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #wanderwashington #ourpnw #werehikers #hikewashington #sweatyhappydirty #outdoorblogger #pnwwilderness #cascadiaexplored #folkscenery #werehikers #throughthepines #pnw_compass #findmeoutdoors #pnwroamers #wildernessculture #thehikemovement
Such a calm morning at this lake Please follow me: @hiking_lover086 Via: @timotomkel
I’m so excited because it’s time to start working on my summer backpacking program! It still feels like light years away, but I cannot wait to see the kids’ faces when they see this view. Sunset Ledge, The Long Trail. ⛰🏕🌄
This girl never fails to let me know she farted, she can’t be the only one right? Haha // swipe to check out a preview of our new YT video where we spent our new year’s day at bassi falls 💙 thennn head to the link in my bio for the full video , thanks ! ☺️
Our view when @courtdizzle96 and I came up on the ridge leading to Mt. Baden Powell’s peak. As we hiked across the ridge we saw 2 other hikers hiking down; had the peak to ourselves, if it wasn’t so windy it would have been very peaceful. Fun day, shared the mountain with 4 other hikers, that’s it, there was only 6 of us on Mt. Baden Powell on this day 1-12-2018. #themountainsarecalling #snowhike #sixpackofpeaks #peak1 #socalhiker #365milechallenge #whatsyour20 #myview #52hikechallenge2018 #hikerbabesorg100 #ilovehiking #journeyto100 2/💯 #optoutside #werehikers #neverstopexploring #hikeie #badasshikingwomen #girlswhohike #modernhiker #todsl #hikelikeagirl #hikingadventure #choosemountains #forceofnature #girlswhohikela #hikelikeagirl

Four years ago today, I woke up at 4 in the morning, packed up my Honda Civic with all of my possessions along with my cat, Ace and drove down the street, heading towards Seattle as my mom waved from the sidewalk crying. I can’t believe it’s been four years since I made my big move. - A lot has changed over the last four years - my living situation(s), my job(s), my passions, my priorities, my relationships, my headspace and most importantly, myself. - It’s been a wild and bumpy ride over the last four years, but I wouldn’t change a single thing about it. I love the person I’ve grown into. I’m stronger, healthier, wiser and for once in my life, I know exactly what I want and where I’m going. - Like I told a friend last night, there’s nothing in my life I’ve ever wanted more and have worked so hard for than my upcoming #PCT thru-hike. I can’t describe this yearning I have for doing this hike, but I can feel it throughout my entire body, every single day. - And to think, I might not have ever been preparing for this adventure had I not hopped into my little car and drove 14 hours north four years ago. - Happy Moving Anniversary to me. And thank you Universe for showing me the way and reassuring me every day that I’m finally on the right path. 📷: @gopro . . . . . #pct2018 #PacificCrestTrail #hiking #HikingAdventures #TakeAHike #HikeMore #HikingFun #GoOutside #OptOutside #OurPNW #mountains #ChasingMyDreams #WomenWhoHike #mtnchicks #werehikers #herPNWlife #nature #outdoors #adventure #ExploreMore #NeverStopExploring

// january 2018 - We all have experienced this one way or the other, you’ve planned for weeks for your trip then Mother Nature has other plans or you’re not feeling well. For us, it was a bit of both. I wasn’t feeling 100% and there was considerable risk of avalanche danger for the snowshoeing trails we chose. We are still new to snowshoeing but any risk to my loved ones and myself, I have to decline. It doesn’t matter if you’re on a popular trail, things happen. In the winter especially, you could begin hiking to clear skies and the next second a low stratus cloud makes it way which is exactly what we saw on Sunday, and it only confirmed that listening to the avalanche warning was indeed wise. We still enjoyed lowland trails and this girl of mine could care less about what kind of trails we do together. All she cares about is spending time outdoors. My word of advice is no matter the season: be prepared, be smart, and always leave a hiking itinerary in your car and let your friends or family know where you’re headed.
When I first met you, I honestly didn't know you were going to be this important to me.
