My view of Mt Rainier from Pinnacle Peak trail. This trail is short and steep which makes the trail seam longer than it really is and definitely not kid friendly. I was first on the trail this morning and on the way back down witnessed the crying and tired little kids. It was nice and quiet on my way up and all I heard were birds and Pika. I saw Marmots running around digging in the dirt along a treeline, I wonder if they were digging for truffles. Haha! I then saw a Pika collecting grasses for his den and he ran right next to me on the trail. Then when I got to the end of the trail I saw some little lenticular clouds forming above Mt Rainier. It was a good day considering rain was in the forecast later in the day. 9/22/18 . #pinnaclepeak #mtrainiernationalpark #mysoloadventure #myparkmyadventure #mypark #nationalpark #upperleftusa #LandscapePhotography #outdoorphotography #pnwdiscovered #upperleftusa #pnwisbest #destinationWA #theNWadventure #landscapephotomag #usparksandmonuments #washingtonexplored #nationalparkgeek #shutterworldmag #gearupforadventure #staywild #yourshotphotographer #pnwisbeautiful #FindYourPark #usparksandmonuments #visitrainier #whyihike #liveyouradventure #findyouradventure #findyourpark #naturalwashington at Pinnacle Peak Mt Rainier NP

🐯🐟🌋🌅What is success? To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people And the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics And endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by A healthy child, a garden patch Or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed Easier because you have lived; This is to have succeeded.

If you only walk on sunny days, you’ll never reach your destination - Paulo Coelho | I can’t believe 2018 is already 3/4 done!! Where does the time go? Have you reached or will you reach the goals you set for yourself this year? Is it just me or do you find yourself setting far fewer but significantly loftier goals each year as you get older? at Grand Canyon National Park

I just got back from a 23 day long fire roll out on the Bacon Rind fire which is on the Western side of Yellowstone. On this particular day the fire blew up on us again and we got to take turns watching it from down the road. In the first 5 days the fire over doubled in size (from roughly 2,000 acres to 4,250 acres) burning through a heavy fuel load of mixed conifers. Pictured here is the rest of my squad (Charlie Squad) with our crew boss on the left, i couldn't have asked for a better squad to be on and this is not a fire ill soon forget . . . #yellowstonepledge #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #discover_wyoming #nationalparkgeek #nationalparks #national_park_photography #usinterior #earthescope #bbcearth #awesome_photo #fire #wildfire #squad #forestfire #firefighter #gallatinnationalfirest #getoutside #nationalparkservice #topcaptures #nature_brilliance #earthcapture #outdoor #likeaboss #NationalParkLife #parkrangerlife #findyourpark #fiftyshades_of_nature #natgeo #dramatic at Yellowstone National Park

St. Mary Falls, near Rising Sun. Glacier National Park. This trail is relatively flat and at just less than 4 miles Owen was able to walk the whole thing! The trail leads you through a burned forest area. Fires play an important role in maintaining a healthy forest ecosystem. The trail was crowded but the falls were gorgeous. Some people enjoyed a swim in the pools below the falls....I wasn’t brave enough to hop in. at Glacier National Park, St. Mary, MT

Morning time amazement. ••••• Thanks to Jason @jawelch22 for sharing the beautiful day. ——- “Morning Reflections” As the fall foliage peaks here in the park, the crowds gather every morning at the Oxbow to get that perfect classic #GTNP sunrise reflection shot. I too will join the masses at some point I’m sure, but on this particular morning I decided to drive by the parking lot and head up a little further to Jackson Lake Dam. Yes there is no pretty Aspens in the frame, but there is a nice reflection of the whole “Cathedral” mountain range off the still waters of Jackson Lake. And I had the whole place to myself....cool crisp fall air, the quiet rumble of the water spewing out of the dam destined for Idaho, and Bull Elk bugling from the near by Elk Flats. Sometimes it’s more about the experience than getting “the shot”, and in these moments I tend to linger a little more after the sun has illuminated the mountains, thankful for the opportunity to be here.. • • • ========================== #jacksonlake #reflections #grandtetonnationalpark #jacksonhole #wyoming #national_park_photography #findyourpark #travelphotography #naturephotography #landscapephotography #splendid_earth #splendid_reflections #getoutside #mountainair #enjoythemoment #earth_reflect #usinterior ——— #nationalparkgeek at Grand Teton National Park

It took 4 hours to trek down to the waters edge. After setting up camp, the rest of the crew decided to curl up in a hammock and nap. I went out down the coastline for a mile and a half on my own. It was breathtaking. Just a canopy of thick fog and the distant braying of seagulls. It's beautiful to realize there are still untouched recesses of the earth where you can be perfectly and totally off the grid. Breathe it in. at Olympic National Park

Some of the most beautiful moments are of expressing the joy and not seeking it. This is one such moment from our trip to #pnw. A beautiful hike, great people and an amazing fall at the end. This visit has left us wanting for more. How does backpacking thru Olympic N.P sounds like? at Sol Duc Falls

So Fall is definitely my favorite time of the year. I literally love everything about it, especially all of the wonderful Fall colors. So if I overwhelm some of you with all of my Fall pictures I apologize in advance. I haven’t had a chance yet this year to get out and photograph any color yet so I thought I would post an old one as a warm up. Enjoy. . .

Two weeks has been the longest time I have spent anchored down to one city in the two months I have been traveling in Ecuador, South America. Tomorrow evening I will be bussing down to Trujillo, Peru with an awesome new companion, after wrapping up the time I have spent here in Cuenca with some of the loveliest people I will not forget. Through my fun spanish classes and volunteer work at my Hostal, many outstanding, kind, thoughtful, and genuine people from all walks of life have come through the revolving door of traveling and into my life bearing positive impact, inspiration, and knowledge that challenge me to try to see the world through different perspectives- and all of that contributing to my constant growth. Traveling with just a flexible skeleton itinerary has been key to the success of my adventures and has allowed me to seek out opportunities that often present itself in the moment and could otherwise be missed with a strict schedule. However fun spontaneity is, having a routine of 20 hours of spanish classes a week with 25 hours of work kept me busy and goal oriented. The time allowed me the space to build longer and more meaningful relationships and to belong and contribute in a community that is often a difficult feat while traveling through cities. I am grateful to have exchanged stories, shared meals, 8 hour hikes in the Park, and even something as simple as a walk down the local market for ingredients with people from all corners of the world. If it isn’t the food that I’ll miss about this city, or the second visit to the majestic Cajas National Park I’ll remember, it’ll always be about the moments I’ve shared with the people on this journey. A few of the people that have been integral to my stay these last weeks: Jude, Travis, Hernan, Lucas, Andrea, Patricia my spanish teacher, my classmates, Asher and Che, Phelina, and all the amazing panadería vendors who know how to whip up a good flaky croissant. Hasta luego ;) (09/08-09/24/18) #peruhereicome at Cajas National Park

“It had nothing to do with the gear or footwear or the backpack fads or the philosophies of any particular era or even with getting from point A to point B. It had to do with how it felt to be in the wild. With what it was like to walk for miles with no reason other than to witness the accumulation of trees and meadows, mountains and deserts, streams and rocks, rivers and grasses, sunrises and sunsets. The experience was powerful and fundamental it seemed to me that it had always felt like this to be a human in the wild, and as long as the wild existed it would always feel this way.” -WILD Cheryl Strayed at Angels Landing

Walk it like I talk it (3x, Part 2). I’m not blessed with a naturally tight bod (gotta work for it 😒). I get cellulose-y hammies and belly real quick 🙇🏻‍♀️ ... but with the right diet ( #ketodiet #grainfree #glutenfree 🙋🏻‍♀️) + exercise 💪🏼 (circuit training, Hot #Pilates, dead lifts and #squats 💯), my mind 🧠 and body was ready to carry a 40lb pack and hike 30+ miles! But for anyone else who can’t get into #beastmode prior to tackling long distance 👣 or any intense adventure for that matter, here’s some #lifehacks/ #protip to prevent injuries and ensure health, safety and warmth on your journey (Note this post is NOT sponsored): *Cont. on Part 3. . . . . . #berglake #bergglacier #jasper #mtrobson #mtrobsonprovincialpark #jaspernationalpark #bcparks #explorebc #explorebcparks #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #canadasworld #discovercanada #travelcanada #discoverearth #discover_earthpix #earthpix #earthpics #canadaparks #leavenotrace #backcountry #backpackingadventures at Mt Robson

Walk it like I talk it (3x, Part 3). 1. Hydrocolloid bandages cleverly placed on all blister-prone areas. We used Bandaid brand hydro seal heel blisters even on other non-heel areas. The extra cushion it provides is super nice when you’re knocking out them miles 2. Leukotape on top of hydrocolloid bandages to help keep them in place. If you don’t have leukotape, cloth tape works too 3. Wool socks 🧦 4. #Goretex hiking boots to ensure dry feet @Vasquefootwear hiking 5. Kinesiology tape for problem areas like Achilles tendinitis, patellar tendinitis or lower back. I haven’t tried too many brands, but Spartan Tape brand worked great 6. @rei waterproof hiking pants 7. @outdoorresearch waterproof jacket 8. #CBD gummies or sublingual drops - 10mg to 25mg to assist with pain and inflammation reduction. I got my drops from @topikal.cbd. Love this store! 😍 9. @CBDlivingwater in our bladders for on-the-go access to this #lifeforce 10.

Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes в Долине Смерти - самые фотографируемые барханы США. Такая популярность связана с легкой доступностью. И если захочется найти здесь не затоптанный песок, придется немного попотеть. Хотя дюны и не превышают тридцати метров в высоту, ходить по песку не так-то просто. Лучшее время для прогулки раннее утро или предзакатный час: низкое солнце отбрасывает длинные тени, эффектно подчеркивая графичные изгибы песчаных волн. .

Death Valley, USA. . Той ночью он спас нас от голодной смерти. Нет, я серьёзно! Кто бы мог подумать, что в этом кемпинге не будет решёток для жарки? Почти целый день в пути мы облизывали взглядом свой новый дорожный холодильник и мечтали, как устроим грандиозный пир под звездам. И тут такая непруха. Хорошо, что пустой желудок награждает не только бесполезным урчанием в животе, но и обостряет смекалку. Девиз моего мужа: в любой непонятной ситуации пей пиво. И он выпил, конечно. С последним глотком его сразу т̶о̶р̶к̶н̶у̶л̶о̶ осенило. - Банка! Пивная банка! - Серега принялся терзать ее ножом... Волшебный запах повис над пустыней: мы жарили мясо на листах жестянки, уложенных поверх горячих камней. Это был один из тех моментов, что врезаются в память на всю жизнь. Звездная прохладная ночь, отблески костра, долгожданный ужин и предвкушение утренней встречи с теми самыми #slidingrocks. Только подумать, сегодня мы будем спать совсем рядом с этим мистическим местом! Само собой, в Долине Смерти найдётся несколько гостиниц, но стоит ли упускать шанс так незабываемо провести вечер? .
