Bucket list ✔️ Cruising through a National Park in a convertible (roof down of course!) @MazdaUSA #MiataSummer #FeelAlive #Ad #MX5

We found wonderland ♥️

@Nautica recently sent Matthew and I on a trip to capture the adventurous spirit of their new fragrance - Voyage Heritage. We opted to explore beautiful British Columbia, with its turquoise lakes, epic mountains and lush forests.

It was one heck of a trip. Click the link in my bio for a blog post on what we got up to! #MyNautica #ad

Hands up who loves road trips?! 🙋🏻‍♀️ I just arrived back in Seattle after a fun couple of days cruising through the mountains with @MazdaUSA. We drove through Oregon & Washington, stopping at some of our favorite places like Bend and Mt Rainier... and of course made numerous detours for ice cream 😆 Can’t wait to share more from this trip! #MiataSummer #Ad #FeelAlive #MX5

I didn’t feel like hiking up the mountainside of boulders to get to this lake... I was tired and it was raining. Matt convinced me to come along and I’m so glad he did because this lake and another one close by were absolutely gorgeous! The mist and fog gave the whole area a dreamy feel (and had me soaked by the time we made it back to camp 😆) - worth it!

Have you guys been logging your hikes for the @nature_valley Summer of a Million Miles Challenge? We have until the 31st of August to collectively reach 1 million miles! Log your hikes to earn badges and rewards, and at the end of the summer one lucky winner will be selected to win the grand prize, a trip to a National Park! (No purchase necessary to enter. Ends 8/31/18. Must be 18, details linked in my bio) #ad #naturevalleyhikeamillion

I also just put up a new blog post from this trip - 5 epic Alaska hiking and backpacking adventures (+ packing tips!) Head on over to my stories or click the link in my bio to check it out!

*Update* As a result of the active wildfire season to date, Nature Valley has made the decision to immediately commit the $250,000 donation to the National Park Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund. This will allow the NPF to distribute funds as needed to parks affected by disasters like wildfires. You should all continue logging your miles this summer for the chance to unlock some awesome prizes!

I have so much love for this mountain (well actually it’s a volcano...) 💛

Have you visited Mount Rainier? I still remember how blown away I was when I first visited the park some 6 years ago. I’ve since returned a handful of times and can’t wait to explore more of the area now that we live in Seattle ✨

... and for a moment the peaks emerged from a thick layer of fog, providing respite from the relentless rain ✨

Hiking in the Talkeetna Range to this hut was probably the highlight of our trip. Thanks for making it possible @nature_valley! Remember to continue logging your walks, runs and hikes for the Summer of a Million Miles Challenge to see how many more miles we can log together this summer! #ad #naturevalleyhikeamillion

Alaska is the kind of place that I could return to again and again and continue to be awestruck ⛺️✨

Most of you probably know by now how much I cherish our wild spaces and national parks. We did, after all, travel to all 59 in 2017. So, naturally I am super excited to partner with @Nature_Valley on this trip back to Alaska, to help spread the word about their Summer of a Million Miles Challenge!

If we as a community collectively log one million miles, @Nature_Valley will donate $250,000 to the National Park Foundation! To participate, download the MapMyHike app and sign up for the Nature Valley Summer of a Million Miles Challenge. I’d love to see you guys out there contributing!

Check out my stories (under the “Alaska” highlight) to see what hikes I’ve been getting up to! #NatureValleyHikeAMillion #ad. No purchase necessary. End 8/31/18. Must be 18. Details linked in bio.

Who else feels like summer is going by way too fast!? The things I love most about this time of year are our adventures in the mountains, hiking, camping and taking road trips... but there’s a part of me that always craves beaches and the ocean. Our solution? Book a tropical getaway in late fall/winter once the best season for hiking is over and the snow isn’t yet prime for snowboarding 😆

We are stoked to partner with @Hopper to celebrate our anniversary in Tulum this November! You’re missing out if you haven’t yet checked out their app - they have crazy good deals on flights and it’s super easy to book! Head on over to my stories or click the link in my bio to see more 🌴🍹☀️

Throwback photo to a month or so back in San Francisco. We woke up early to catch sunrise at the Golden Gate Bridge and it didn’t disappoint ✨

We just returned from an epic week long backpacking trip in the wilderness of Lake Clark National Park (swipe left for more photos!) A small group of us (plus our rad guide from Expeditions Alaska) hiked from Telaquana to Turquoise Lake and then base-camped for a few days. We hiked through thick brush, forged across glacial fed rivers and pushed ourselves physically and mentally. Even better, we had some amazing conversations and formed great friendships. I love that aspect about getting off-the-grid, the way that it resets you from the everyday habits of reaching for your phone or constantly looking for distractions.

Due to our heavy packs @matthewhahnel and I chose to take limited camera gear on our trek. We captured all of our photos (and video) on the Sony a7Riii, 16-35mm f/2.8 and the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6. Despite capturing so much we only used 2 batteries the entire trip... so stoked to be an ambassador for such an innovative company like @SonyAlpha #AlphaCollective

Doorways of Cusco✨

I fell in love with Cusco’s beautiful history and architecture all over again on my recent trip to Peru. Having visited once before almost 10 years ago, it was nostalgic walking around the city but at the same time it felt new and exciting. I could have spent days strolling the cobblestone streets and photographing the vibrant doorways and buildings.

Always wanted to explore Peru? You won’t want to miss my post tomorrow...

Thanks to @acanelaexpeditions, @arvo, @fawndesign, @wovenpear, @veryjane @bricsmilano for making this trip possible ✨ #AcanelaPeru

Can you believe places like this even exist?! ✨

The painted Ausangate mountains in the Peruvian Andes are often referred to as the “Rainbow Mountains”. The striped colors are largely due to varying mineral deposits and weathering. The Acanela crew and I opted to explore this lesser visited part of the Rainbow Mountains, and we had sunrise (and the crazy star show beforehand) all to ourselves.

Tag a friend below who you would take a photo like this with! 👇🏼

Thank you to @acanelaexpeditions, @kytrisha and @domingoatao8372 for making this sunrise adventure possible. Check out the link in my bio for more info on Acanela’s awesome trips around Peru and other rad destinations #AcanelaPeru
