Chillin in some ice caves 😉
The big light abyss above me is called a moulin. It’s a big round vertical tunnel of ice and are beloved by ice climbers

A photo from what is quite possibly my favorite sunrise of all time 🤘
I also just got my website up and running again. There isn’t a ton of photos on it yet, but there are a handful of my favorites, and quite a few that aren’t on my Instagram. If you want to check it out, the link is in my bio!

Sunrise on the John Muir Trail. I’m normally not a morning person, but I can always get up early when I’m camping because I wake up stoked for views like this

I’ve been putting in more miles of hiking this year than any previous year by far! I’m very excited to hike many many more. I’ll be in Glacier National Park this week, if anyone is around and wants to hike, shoot me a DM!

I always get way too excited about amazing camp spots 🤘

Many miles back, along what is now one of my favorite trails, we came across this lake. It was paradise. The views which take the most work to get to are so often the most rewarding

Elliot and I spontaneously decided to drive down to the Eastern Sierras of California and do some backpacking this past weekend. Over 35 miles, we saw some of the most beautiful views. We also had to contend with the worst mosquitos that either of us had ever seen 😆 it was incredible though, and I already can’t wait to go back

John Muir is quoted as saying that Mt.Rainier is the noblest peak of the cascades. What do you think? I wouldn’t argue with that ~
Each time I come up here, I’m just in disbelief. It may seem fairly distant in the photo, but this mountain was towering above us. From the trails w could also see all the massive glaciers and crevasses. We met two very friendly marmots as well 😊

Throwback to the ice caves ❄️ every year, the ice caves change, collapse, and rebuild. They are never exactly the same two years in a row

Classic Teton views from last year. This park is at the top of my ‘revisit’ list. It’s not the biggest park, but the mountains here have so much to offer

We had such crazy conditions at this lake! When we arrived, it was sunny. That night, a massive storm moved in and we had lightning and thunder louder than I had heard before. The next morning, there was thick fog rolling through the trees and mountains. Never a dull moment in the mountains 👌

This morning we woke up on Rainier to find that it was 32°, and later it even snowed. Even in July, it gets cold in the mountains! The weekend was amazing though, and this sunrise was perhaps my favorite that I have seen so far
