A new post is up on the blog 😅 Click that #linkinbio to read about our hike to Madonna med Barnet, or Madonna and Child 🤗 I wish the skies were still this blue but instead we’re stuck inside, hiding from the rain 🌧 We have a nice fire going and are admiring the mystical fog from the windows ☺️ Hope you’re having a lovely Tuesday ❤️
Only 1 more week at my current job then I get to start my new job next Monday! Cheers to new adventures!
I need a Trek! I need to feel this! ⛰🏃🏼‍♀️

Buddy’s just holding onto his needles, trying to convince himself it’s still fall.

“What has happened to us. We wake up, day after day, silencing our alarms, only to forgo the inevitable -- another day spent chasing the monotonous security of our mundane lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have we lost our sense of adventure? I like to think we haven’t. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I like to to think adventure lies dormant in each and every one of us, muffled by the norms of society, patiently waiting for a liberating spark. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That spark I speak of, the breaking point, a moment only the lucky ones reach-- a moment when everything goes quiet, when time, and with it linear thought, fade into nothing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You live a lifetime in that moment. Each breath silencing your mind, and preparing your body for what lies ahead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And then, it happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like fire, adrenaline pulses through your veins. Your pupils dilate. Your hair stands up. You let go. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The mind and body now operate as a cohesive pair, bringing your senses to an all time high and allowing you to achieve things you’ve only dreamt of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But this doesn’t just happen on it’s own. You have to create the moment. Search for it. Earn the adventure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The day prior to this image, @andrew_veith and I spent the night hunkered down in our tents, pummeled by high winds and low temps. But, we awoke to a scene from a dream -- perched above the cloud deck, we had 9 inches of fresh powder and not a soul in sight. Pictured here, is the result of our decision to pursue adventure. The black spec is Andrew, in #fullsend past illumination rock; en route from the summit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It would have been easy to stay home that day, but adventure, like life, will not wait. It’s on you to make it happen, and that's exactly what we did.” // @pat__duffy
Serenely gazing at the fog-covered valley or staring off into space wondering if we are far enough into the hike to eat second breakfast. Another 3 am wake-up this weekend with @shelbymarie1986 and our first time in the North Cascades! It was amazing.
A golden time to be in the pnw 💛
These fall colors though...here overnight and gone in the blink of an eye 🍁🍂🌲
Absolutely love fire towers 😍
