I've got my weekend plans. What about you? Funny how I am always searching for the hike with the best weather forecast. You'd think I'd be used to Washington state wether by now after nearly 20 years of living here. But I guess I still need some sunshine.

Could write about how serene this morning was and how good it feels to finally be outside again. But instead today’s caption will simply be:
Moody mornings by the lake. ☁️

My last photo of El Matador Beach reminded me of this photo 📷 Me and my friends take a backpacking trip each year, and last year we hiked along the coast in Olympic National Park 🏞 We had to do this part at low tide (you may notice the ocean is gone 👀) so that we could pass through certain parts of the coast that would otherwise be impassible 🌊 Seeing the ocean disappear was trippy 🤯 #olympicnationalpark#national_park_photography#westcoastbestcoast#fbf
It’s Mental Health Awareness Week. This year's theme is kindness, and there’s probably never been a more powerful time to promote and celebrate kindness. Kindness to others, and also to yourself 🌈
One thing I’ve learned from solo endurance challenges (learned, but haven’t mastered!) is to be kind to yourself. In periods of isolation, you are alone with the way that you treat yourself, so try kindness. From a mental health perspective, this is a fairly essential tool.
On all of my solo endurance challenges, I’ve been lucky to receive so much kindness from people cultures in all corners of the globe, no matter the state that I stumble into communities in. It’s a reaction that has always overwhelmed and humbled me, and these acts, great or small, have often been the kindling to that has kept me going in difficult moments. This pandemic is affecting everyone, and regardless of global events, everyone’s got their own shit. Always be kind to one another - you never know what your act of kindness could mean to someone in whatever they’re going through 💕
Honestly can’t wait to have a good cry at Mount Rainier once this is all over 🏔🌲
Tag the person with whom you want to go with 🙌🏻😍

Buchaille Etive Mòr, Highlands of Scotland
One of the best known of all the Munro peaks, Buchaille Etive Mor is found at the head of Glen Etive and just along the A82 road into Glencoe.
Buachaille Etive Mòr (Scottish Gaelic: Buachaille Èite Mòr, meaning "the herdsman of Etive"), ... (Wikipedia)
Our Snowy misty days can almost be as dramatic as the Scottish Highlands.
