#pnw52 challenge 32: Rachel Lake. Some maps say 6.8, some say 8, but believe you me, it’s at least 9 miles, with a ridiculous incline and elevation gain of 1939. I have been a little rusty and this is by far the hardest hike out of the 32. Glad to have great company and the reflection for this challenge was mostly about perseverance. The ghosts and the pain tend to fall further and further in the rear view mirror and the promise of what’s possible shines brighter every day. #pnw52 #pnwonderland #pnwlife #upperleftusa #washingtonbyphone #herpnwlife #pnw #pnwhikerbabes #pnwoutdoorwomen #pacificnorthwest #thegreatoutdoors #forceofnature #outdoorswithnature #headedelsewhere #the_outdoors_traveler #instagood #pnwbyphone #lifeofadventure #mypnwpics #pnwisbeautiful #yonderwashington #wildwithinreach #rachellake

Finally some rest after a looooong week. Cardiac OR nursing is awesome but it sometimes keeps you at work for a 13hr day when you weren't expecting it. This weekend won't be spent in the mountains (everyone needs some family and baby-nephew time when they can get it) but part of me is always itching to get out there.
Mailed out our first Family Set the other day. #fashionfriday #flannelfamily
This tiny baby trail has been on my list for years. I always pass it by headed for bigger better hikes. I finally took the time to stop and check it out over the weekend. I highly recommend stopping when you’re passing through on Hwy 2. It’s a quick half mile loop. . . . . #pnwonderland #pnwlife #upperleftusa #wanderwashington #herpnwlife #pnw #glt #pacificnorthwest #thegreatoutdoors #livewashington #optoutside #gltlove #rei1440project #outdoorswithnature #lovethepnw #autumn #headedelsewhere #washingtonexplored #the_outdoors_traveler #instagood #upperleftusa #lifeofadventure #mypnwpics #pnwisbeautiful #yonderwashington #fall #wonderfulworld #naturephotography #fallhiking

Isn't funny what we consider to be fun? Cold and wet, can't get dry, no sun in sight but you keep going. You keep going cause you have faith, you have faith knowing the sun will come back. You hang on. So until the sun comes back, you drink warm liquids, you layer (change layers), find heat, heat up a water bottle to put in your sleeping bag, wiggle in your sleeping bag, and even after you do all these things. You'll probably still be wet and cold but you'll have endless mountain views inbetween the rolling fog and memories that will last forever. #pnwcollective #pnwonderland #backpacking #adventurecalling #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #hikingadventures #yonderwashington #yourlead #washingtonhikersandclimbers #explorewashington #womenwhoexplore #sheadventures #sheexplores #shehikes #picoftheday #photooftheday #landscapephotography #lakelove #lakes #trees #reflection #nature #outdoorwomen #girlswhoadventure #wanderlust #trails #everytrailconnects
We found an overgrown deer path on our #vanlife trip through Idaho. Naturally we had to see where it went... When you slow down and start to enjoy the little things around you, sometimes those little things become rewards far greater than you could imagine.

Grant me the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me (said the Eneagram type 6...)
Star-light star-bright all the stars I see tonight. I couldn’t ask to live in a better place than the Pacific Northwest. . . It’s been a while since I posted and that’s because I have been savoring the last bit of summer outside and experiencing life for what it can be.
Yesterday we through-hiked the Enchantments - almost 19.7 miles, some very unfortunate mishaps and lots of larches later we're back. 🔸The Enchantments was one of my first backpacking trips and I've brought friends back to it because it really is like no other place. In the past I've taken multiple days (4!) to go through this granite wonderland and the thought of trying to make it in a day seemed crazy. (which it was at the time - but keep at it friends. Your body and mind will surprise you if you put in the miles) We did it! 🔸that said the whole trip is a bit marred by a party separation and a healthy dose of lack of communication (mostly on my end - we know what happens when you assume) but it all turned out ok in the end and I'm not going anywhere without my radios from now on. I also owe another through hike to Kim and Karl 😬 🔸Looking forward to trying some more climbs up in this area in the future. Prusik peak I'm coming for you!

Went for a great long hike today.
Is it scarf weather yet? 🌲
Itll you could go back in time and tell your childhood self one thing what would it be?
"He took little pieces of me - little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted...I lost myself for a long time, and now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you..." Getting the pieces back 💜 #mountrainiernationalpark #backpacking #adventurecalling #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #hikingadventures #yonderwashington #yourlead #washingtonhikersandclimbers #explorewashington #womenwhoexplore #sheadventures #sheexplores #shehikes #picoftheday #photooftheday #landscapephotography #lakelove #lakes #trees #reflection #nature #outdoorwomen #girlswhoadventure #wanderlust #trails #everytrailconnects
When you have an awesome bandana and you're friend is maybe just a bit jealous. PC: @sikeimjustkidding @lifeofmongo
