Boulder river falls
This was taken summer of 2017 during the smoking summer season during sunset near North Bend, WA at about 4,500’ in Elevation 🌲🔥
The first step to crafting the life you want is to get rid of what you don’t.
📍Surprise Creek.
I love the beauty in the sunset. I love to sit still and hold hands with my sweetie. If we talk, it’s with whispers. Life is crazy busy and we don’t always get the chance to take time out to enjoy this or the weather doesn’t cooperate, but when it does....take the time. You won’t regret it. . . #pnwsunset #pnwonderland #sunset #river #forest #woods #cloudscape
This statue of Martin Luther King was erected in 1989 as only the fourth such statute approved by the King Foundation. The statue can be found on the Columbia Basin College campus in Pasco, and it includes a boy carrying books walking alongside Dr. King representing King’s belief that education is essential to positive social change. #martinlutherking #mlk #ig_inlandnw #wanderwashington #washingtonexplored #yonderwashington #nwtravelmag #washingtonstate #pnw #pascowa
Sundown hiking is the best...
Life doesn’t have to be spent always in the fast lane. How much do you miss when you speed past? I love Adventure Days spent with my hubby. No plan. Just driving. Stopping where we want. Picking a road not traveled and going for it. 🌲 🌲 Built 1916-1918 this bridge was hailed as the longest concrete span in the world at the time. How cool is that? Awesome that it is still here and we can drive across it. Take the time to explore, you’ll always find something new😊 #exploremore #explorepnw #explorewashington #adventuretime #trustthewild #liveauthentic
Trail wisdom from today: the early hiker gets the prime parking spot right next to the closed forest gate for the winter. I was the first to the closed gate and the had the Falls all to myself today, but coming back, it was a long train of people hiking in. And the line up of vehicles once I got back to the gate? 😱 . . . . . . . #optoutside #pnwhiking #hiking #pnwlife #pnwisbest #pnwonderland #washington #washingtonhikes #washingtonhiking #washingtonstate #discoverwashington #upperleftusa #yonderwashington #livewashington #wanderwashington #thatpnwlife #ourwild #washingtontrails #pnwdiscovered #cascadiaexplored #waterfall #waterfallsfordays #fallscreekfalls #giffordpinchot #giffordpinchotnationalforest #pnwwaterfalls #washingtonwaterfalls #wta

Conditioning got me complaining but I'm getting closer to my goals thanks to people who sometimes have to pull me up a mountain. It's never been easy for me to exercise but I am going into 2018 a little stronger than last year and with a better knowledge of what "difficult" and "strenuous" feels like. 💪 Here's to toting more 35 lb packs at peppy paces
There are lots of things about Mother Nature I admire: its beauty, grace, solitude, resilience, and its many faces and places. But what I love above all, is how she can make me feel so small and remind me no matter what trail I choose, I am just a tiny spec in her domain. . . . #pnwonderland #pnwlife #upperleftusa #washingtonbyphone #herpnwlife #pnw #pnwhikerbabes #pnwoutdoorwomen #pacificnorthwest #thegreatoutdoors #forceofnature #asdt #outdoorswithnature #headedelsewhere #the_outdoors_traveler #instagood #pnwbyphone #letsmakegold #lifeofadventure #mypnwpics #pnwisbeautiful #yonderwashington #mountbaker
#pnw52 Challenge 25: Artist Point at Mount Baker. Lucky to have ride or die friends who drive three hours and battle the elements for the thrill, and man oh man, was it worth it.

There’s no place just like this place anywhere near this place so this must be the place
Ladies and gentlemen, the Fremont Troll.
2017 was a full year. I’ve been processing it more this past week and in the end I think you have to take the good and the bad. Hold them in your hand and say “this is it”. There were such highs. Literal mountains. And there were lows - deep questions asked that I still don’t know the answers to fully. I have pushed myself mentally and physically farther than I’ve ever gone - both in mountaineering and in my career. There have been sleepless nights working trauma at the hospital, adventures outside the country to see new places and even traveling on my own for the first time. I have been cared for by so many people in this year and I wouldn’t be where I’m at were it not for the continuing support of people who listen to me, encourage me to be more fearless and challenge me to ask what I really believe to be true about myself and the world. I go into 2018 with a hope for clarity of goals and dreams and self. For increased strength and endurance (literal and emotional haha). For the opportunity to be more generous and caring. I hope to take my fear that I carry on a daily basis and embrace it, breath through it and keep an open heart with it. I am not the strongest, the fastest, the smartest but i am blessed - and I hope to bless others this year too. If you made it this far into this photo caption turned essay - 😘. My word for 2018 is “Courage”.
Here’s to climbing familiar and new mountains in 2018!
New year new summits new challenges. Same old PNW love.
