Sorry we've been offline lately! Between dodging rain, scouting and prepping, and shooting for clients it's been a really busy week. Here's a shot I've been saving for a month. ⋗
We were walking out to hang our bear bags when the sky turned purple and I was caught without my camera. Thank goodness @creeks.and.peaks had hers because I've never seen such a purple sky!

Had to get in one last big hike before summer is officially over (even if it was 20 degrees at the top of the mountain). We woke up at 4am to get started, groggily sipping on some coffee on the way to the trailhead. Hiking in the dark with headlamps is not my favorite thing, but seeing sunrise from the side of the mountain, peeping out over 14ers across the way, felt magical. We basically had the entire trail to ourselves which was amazing. The incline half way up was soo steep that when we reached the false summit we just about died, HA. Finally making it to the actual summit felt surreal, with no one in sight and views that pictures will never do justice. We quickly cheersed ourselves and did a celebratory selfie as we were forced to head down due to high winds. I’m always left feeling so thankful after doing things like this. Being able to have the ability to use my legs, to go on these crazy hikes, and to continuously push my body to extremes is something I never want to take for granted. Congrats to @lraebell for finishing her first big Colorado hike & congrats to Austin for just being the best husband. Love y’all both!
Can’t think of a better way to close out summer 2019. You were a good one 🙏🏻

Mountain adventures are often filled with uncertainty, but sometimes everything goes according to plan. The sun comes out, temperatures stay mild, bugs disappear, navigation is easy, and the views end up better than advertised. Yesterday was one of those days.

It’s getting pretty chilly at night out here solo - the fish tank (what I call my Delica) has been freezing over the last few nights but thank god for down blankets ☺️ had to get my ass out of the van to snap a pic of the sunrise 🌄 #sheneedsabath
Me, cold, wet, but excited, at the beginning of the trailhead. I had no idea what was in store for us - both amazing and disappointing. (Don’t mind my egg head. I didn’t want to take down my giant bun 😅)
Our trip definitely didn’t turn out as planned. We didn’t pull up to Glacier until 1am, then had a 3:30am alarm so we could get to the visitors center and get a walk-up permit for the backcountry cite we’d been pining over. We would have gotten it, but with part of Going-to-the-Sun Road being closed, it put the backcountry cite well over the miles-from-the-road limit due to the grizzly activity (plus, the ranger told us she’d been up there recently and it had heavy bear activity, including an injured bear acting out 😂) - so we got our number two pick! More to come on this.😬😆 #glaciernationalpark#backpacking

This morning 19 women decided to challenge themselves. 6/19 of these women stepped out of their comfort zones to join a group of ladies they had never ran with before. Today’s run might be their furthest distance to date. THIS. This is what inspires me. This is what sets my soul on fire. Being part of a community of women who are finding confidence within themselves to push past their limits and empower each other. I am forever grateful for the friendships I have made and continue to grow because of @womenofwoodlands. Find your tribe and love them hard. 💛 #runwow

There were definitely highs and lows on this hike. The views were high and witnessing shooters on the trail was a low for me. I should have asked what they were trying to shoot otherwise I would have prayed them unsuccessful. I try to be open minded when it comes to hunting. I don't own gun and never will, but I understand a person's right to own and hunt. But why do you have to kill a little black bear?

This is tough country: high elevations & a trudge through snow.
After weathering our 'Welcome to Colorado Storm', we begin our climb up Mount Zerkel, touching the sky at above 12,000 feet.
There's fresh snow, more than we expected, and the wind chill is nothing short of brutal. I'm legitimately scared for my toes, and after some shockingly slow progress, it's time to pitch the shelter on this merciless mountain and get warm inside my quilt (thankfully I have a pair of dry socks). The night isn't so bad after I get warm again, and the wind finally lays.
The next day, we boogie to Rabbit Ears Pass and get a hitch into Steamboat. There's a massive bar crawl going on in town, something I'd usually be stoked for, but all the hotels are booked & I'm feeling dejected.
After a beer & finding some Wifi, we nab the last tent site at the KOA on the outskirts of town. It's time to shower, fatten up a bit, and get some rest. A zero is in order.
Pulled my first 5.11 move on a top rope yesterday! For those of you who know nothing about climbing (I know very little more than you), that means I’m getting closer to being able to do something remotely cool in climbing!
Mad shout out to @brytonmaclennan who actually does cool things in climbing and taught me how to make this move. Maybe one day I’ll be able to load an ATC without your supervision 😅
Moody morning spent paddling through the rain🌿 Home now from our week trip in the Canadian Rockies, and although the weather wasn’t perfect, it was still nice to be out here with a lovely group of friends. We got to visit some places I’ve never been before, hiked through all kinds of weather, and took my very first helicopter ride. Just happy to be out here🏔🌲
