Some moody mountains here en route to Whiteface and Passaconway (I regularly refer to as just Face and Pass). Pretty cold day when we went just a few weeks ago (2.29.20- leap year hike!). Only came across a few other hikers. We went around the bowl and luckily were greeted by a few other hikers who had come from Pass with nothing but good thoughts.
We were pretty cold hanging around the lip of the bowl and saw some weird trail things on the way down. At first it was just a really huge sleeping bag on the side of the trail, but later a bag of clothes, and lastly a rain fly. Spread out over a mile. All kind of weird, but we left them since it looked like someone might have been trying to drop weight going up the trail(?) idk.
Anyway our hiking buddy went down Face solo while we grabbed Pass. Later he was given a beer by another group that we had chatted with on the mountain top while he was just hanging in the parking lot. Thanks guys! We’re kind of in love with you and your dogs anyway. But now extra with the beer. 😍🏔 *
Never before have we experienced such a global feeling of gloom and uncertainty. Ecuador has followed what other countries are doing and have closed schools, cancelled public events, etc. I think it is all sensible with the current situation, although occupying two young boys of two and five at home will be tough... I was hoping to rely on a lot of outdoor play but they have also closed all the parks 😪 Today we drove over an hour out of the city so that we could have a hike with Tala. We will see what happens but I hope some form of containment and normalcy will return before too long 😢 Are your outdoor spaces closed where you are? I would have thought being outside albeit not in large groups is far better than being stuck inside.... also any home schooling or activity tips for little ones would be much appreciated 😉🙏 #muttclothcrew#moodygrams#hikingdogsofinstagram#rucupichincha#allyouneedisecuador
Напоследък нямам много вдъхновение да публикувам тук, не знам дали заради отмененото пътуване до Малта (за което се бях настроила за много нови и красиви снимки), масовата психоза навън и в социалните мрежи или това, че имам все повече свободни дни благодарение на канселираните полети (съответно покрай тях и нашите смени) и прекарвам все повече време с любимите си хора вкъщи или навън, когато времето е хубаво както беше вчера. Споделям ви спокойствието на прекрасния Безбог от преди месец, защото такива снимки винаги ми доставят удоволствие и настроение. Бъдете здрави! 🍀💙

“Social distancing” means I’ve actually been pretty productive and powered through HALF the photo edits I want to do from New Zealand already! That’s a lot for my first week home. 😝 While post-travel hibernation is pretty normal for me, I definitely don’t have any social obligations to distract me currently. Let’s see how long I can keep this spin positive before I get cabin fever / sad about not traveling 🙃
Here’s a preview of the moody day we had leaving Wanaka for Queenstown. The mountain pass between the two cities is a beautiful drive, especially with the taste of low clouds. A lot of people don’t like this weather on vacation, but as I always say, a little weather makes photos better! 📸 Overall, we were *incredibly* lucky with the weather this trip, scoring low winds that allowed us to helicopter when we did, perfectly cool temps for hiking and climbing, and warmer days for most of the boat and water activities. I can’t wait till I can get out again!
Surly L’Aut; domineering neighbor to valley residents (and a ruff Old Man-of-a-Mountain) that makes for one hell of a backdrop, especially during post-ski picnics with pretty girls. #moodymountains and #daydreams@valldeboi 🇪🇸

Indeed, soon we left the broad “lake promenade” and started climbing on a narrow and at some points a bit too exposed highland path.
Despite the ascent being relatively steep, I didn’t find it too tedious. Somehow, it is easier for me to go up on such mountain paths than on smooth roads if the angle is high.
Despite the fact that the sun had hidden behind the grey clouds by the time and the first raindrops started falling as we reached Seebensee, the air remained clear, so the views all around were not completely spoilt for us.
Surely, the lake, laying at about 1650 meters above the sea level and surrounded by impressive rocky summits partly already covered with snow, lost its fascinating turquoise colour which can be enjoyed on a clear sunny day. The mountains around the lake, including Drachenkopf in front of us across the lake and Zugspitze behind us, looked grey and hostile, reflecting at the lake’s surface, and colourful autumn trees lost their brightness.
Find a mountain that inspires you, hike up to it and on top of it, open your arms and feel the massiveness of nature. The thrills are real! 🏔⛰
Last week i went on a trip to the mountains to explore the bright oranges typical of this season.
At the end of the day we found ourselves on top of one of the mountains around “Laghi di Cancano” with an incredible view of the deep blue lake surrounded by the orange trees.
Hope you guys like this one! .
