For Micaela... May you dance freely in the mountains of your new life on the other side 💗 Life seems to have this way with us. It lures us onto a journey that we cannot pass up. It pulls at our soul, inviting us onto a mysteriou path that stimulates our curiosity. Some of us stay in our place of content and safety, enjoying our familiar surroundings; yet, some of us are mesmerized by what is yet to be revealed. Those of us who are curious prepare for the unknown. We stash away wisdom and knowledge in preparation for the journey to come. We set out, completely blind, but open to what may be revealed in the days ahead of us. At our own pace, we learn and we blossem. We gather more wisdome and gain strength. We approach what appears to be our peak and then....out of nowhere, something within the journey knocks us off of our feet. We suddenly and tragically lose a loved one. Our world is shaken. Our security is threatened. Our future momentarily disappears. Time, as we know it, stops. We have many choices at this juntion of our journey's path and sometimes, we aren't able to make a decision. And so, we pause. We go to that place that brings us close to "home"; the home that is our inner guidance. For me, it is nature. We rest, we cry, we experience our grief, we listen, we exist. We exist. WE EXIST. And it is what we decide to do with our existence that determines our next path of the journey. Rest gently my friend. . . . #womenabroad #womenwhotravel #takeahike #womenwhohike #girlslovetravel #backpacker #backpackerlife #getoutside #getoutstayout #choosemountains #chooseoutside #pnwonderland #potd #photooftheday #instagood #wanderlust #optoutside #wildernessculture #igdaily #grief #Washingtonhikersandclimbers #herpnwlife #instatravel #mountainlife #igtravel #travel #pnw #pnwisbest #pacificnorthwest #upperleftusa

helllooo! 👋 what’s exciting you lately? what’re you trying to get after? . here i am cheery in the clouds because i have the ability to get into real sweet places and meet sweet people with a camera along. i have many moments of “am i doing this life the best i can?” & thoughts of needing to do/be better in lots of areas. then times like these ones remind me that everything so far has culminated to being able to breathe hard surrounded by mountains & fog in a place i adore, even if just for a few days every so often right now. i instantly calm the hell down & remember it’s all coming together in its own time. so many thanks to all of you for your support & encouraging words throughout the years. you help make it possible to continue on this wild, confusing at times, full-of-love, beautiful ride. . inspiration comes from minds collaborating & sharing what really gets them going. wanna pretend we’re having a beer (or let’s grab one in real life) & c h a t guys!? if you’re feeling it, comment below what you’re excited about today🙌😏✨what’re you creating, building, planning...i’d love to know!

The “Vertical Beach” to the summit is tough - you take one step forward and slide back two, over and over again.😂😂😂At 8,366 ft elevation, looking down from the top make you’ll feel proud of yourself.

13 mile RT. Standing on top of the most active volcano in the PNW sitting at 8,366 feet. Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing. You will struggle at times and you will have times that make you just want to give up and weep… But what you do in these times of hurt are what define you. . . . . #mountsthelens #mtsthelenssummit #mtsthelens #mtsthelensnationalvolcanicmonument #livehappily #mountainside #mountaingirl #adventurethatslife #adventurouswomen #mountainviews #discoverearthpix #exploremoreoutdoors #welivetoexplorer #lifeofadventures #inthemomentphotography #chooseoutside #l4likeback #l4followers #followmefollowyouback #beautifulearth #natureseekers #hikinglifestyle #pnwlifestyle #roamnation #pnwroamers #getoutsideday #pnwisbeautiful #roamingaround #thatpnwlife #upperleftisbest

Mountains are so special; they have such magic to them. All that I can tell you is that after spending time surrounded by them or climbing them you will feel the urge to come back.

3 open knifeblade ridges converge on an exposed summit pyramid with 360 degree views. Definitely not for the faint of heart.🤯The varied terrain makes it interesting and fun but be prepared to climb loose ground, boulders, light rock climbing and ultimately a narrow ridge. 🥵This is not a trail to think, oh I’m just gonna go up and back as fast as possible. Stop and smell the roses and be safe!😂No matter the season, the Gorge is boundless with beauty and wildlife. Munra Point is a very challenging hike, but also quite brief (6 miles RT). Its solid steep trail leads to great views. . . . #livehappy #mountainside #mountaingirl #adventurethatslife #adventurouswomen #mountainviews #discoverearthpix #exploremoreoutdoors #welivetoexplorer #lifeofadventures #inthemomentphotography #chooseoutside #l4likeback #l4followers #followmefollowyouback #beautifulearth #natureseekers #hikinglifestyle #beautifullandscapes #roamnation #oregonhikes #viewfromthetop #landscape_love #beautifulday #oregonadventures #munra #munrapoint #natures #nationalstatepark

The Pit of Life and Death. Pretty cool place for a pit stop. Unique and beautiful. The Berkeley Pit is a former open pit copper mine. It’s a mile and a half wide and over a third of a mile deep. For the first time since 1982, the Berkeley Pit is not collecting water. Now one of the only places in the world where you can pay to see toxic waste. The sheer scale of the site is something to behold. I learn something new everyday.🤩What have you learned today?🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . #livehappy #mountainside #mountaingirl #adventurethatslife #adventurouswomen #mountainviews #discoverearthpix #exploremoreoutdoors #welivetoexplorer #lifeofadventures #inthemomentphotography #chooseoutside #l4likeback #l4followers #followmefollowyouback #beautifulearth #natureseekers #hikinglifestyle #beautifullandscapes #buttemontana #viewfromthetop #landscape_love #beautifulday #berkeleysprings #montanagram #berkeleyhills #natures #berkeleypit #montana

No one goes up there since it’s closed so make sure you grab a partner to hike. Dangerous hike, a lot of loose terrain so you don’t want to get hurt up there alone. This hike is so rewarding once you get to the top! I wouldn’t recommend it if you are not a fan of heights though. There is only one trail sign that starts the path, which is straight up until you reach the top. You have to use all fours in some places but it’s worth the experience. And be prepared to get down & dirty.😂 . . . #livehappy #mountainside #mountaingirl #adventurethatslife #adventurouswomen #mountainviews #discoverearthpix #exploremoreoutdoors #welivetoexplorer #lifeofadventures #inthemomentphotography #chooseoutside #l4likeback #l4followers #followmefollowyouback #beautifulearth #natureseekers #hikinglifestyle #beautifullandscapes #roamnation #oregonhikes #viewfromthetop #landscape_love #beautifulday #oregonadventures #munra #munrapoint #natures #nationalstatepark

When it’s 14 degrees out🥶, a 108 degrees Umpqua Hot Springs is much needed after a rough hike. The hot springs are unique as they trickle down into other pools and over the edge. It is up on a cliff, so be careful. It is a bit of a hike to get to it, something you have to see! Be prepared, people do sit in the pools in their birthday suit🙈!

Good & Bad memory. I’m still recovering from my full Marathon. That was a crazy journey. I survived and made it up to the Summit at 3:20pm. 26.5 miles with 6200’ of gain and loss. Needless to say, the views at 20.5 miles were beautiful. I practically crawled, one step at a time in the last 5 miles to the Summit like a turtle🐢 and had 6 more miles left to the finish line🏁.🥵I have struggled with muscle spasms in my lower back for the past three weeks, knee issues and blisters, but I managed to run through the brutal pain. It was quite brutal.😢 Glad it’s over!🥵 . . . #liveyourhappy #discoverearthpix #mountainslovers #welivetoexplorer #lifeofadventurer #inthemomentpics #chooseoutside #natureloversgallery #getoutsideandexplore #discover_earthpix #pnwlove #instagood#photooftheday📸 #happymoments😊 #pnwadventure #likeforlike😍 #picoftbeday #beautifulearth #instamood😍 #lifestylephoto #instapic📷 #pnwlifestyle #naturalbeautyvibes #marathontrainning #washingtonlife
