The future bodes at your feet. The familiar shiver of winter approaches.

Vafþrúðnir spake, "The father of day is Delling called, And the night was begotten by Nörr; Full moon and old by the gods were fashioned, To tell the time for men."

Odin spake, "Fourth answer me well, if wise thou art called. If thou knowest it, Vafþrúðnir, now: Whence did winter come, or the summer warm, First with the gracious gods?"

Vafþrúðnir spake: "Vindsval he was who was winter's father..."

-Vafþrúðnismál

You would think I was in a petting zoo.

Dreaming of blue bird days in the PNW.

This was one of my favorite backpacking trips last summer. It was filled with stunning views, ice cold swims, mountain goats, and alpine scrambles. On the last night, a storm rolled in, bent all of my tent poles and ripped my tent. Good times had by all! ⛺️ .

Larches at sunset

today was a good day ⌇⌓ ◠ ◦ ✨ 8 miles, 3.5 hours, and 16k steps ✨
Backpacking or doing the thru-hike in the Enchantments has been on my list for forever and it didn’t happen this year, but I did get a peek at one of the “gateways” of the Enchantments with this hike to Colchuck Lake.
Absolutely spectacular ⚡️🌈. If you’re not into hiking or not sure if you’re up for it, feel free to ping me. I’d be happy to help you find a beautiful hike based on your preferences/abilities/driving distance.

📍Colchuck Lake, Leavenworth area

Starting to smell like snow! Speaking of which... I was attempting to order snow gear for @katsutheminpin yesterday for our first snow hike and it wouldn’t get here until after our hike. So, I decided to just make it myself! Yesterday I made her an insulated, waterproof summit pad and today I’m working on an insulated, waterproof @goretexna jacket. Follow along in my stories (or highlights) if you want to see more! 🙌🏼

Had an awesome mid-week excursion to the arrow of snoqualmie. Soaking up the last of that fall season before the fluffy stuff hits the slopes. Couldn’t have asked for a better day out, nor a better friend to spend it with ✨

There's nothing better than a good human. Except for a human with food. .
When we go hiking, Daryl always eats a sausage stick for lunch. I was so happy to find these Thinkers snack sticks for dogs by @platopettreats . Now the boys get to be just like Dad. Not a sponsored post, just really love these treats.
.
Update on the boys. This afternoon I noticed that Jynx's lymph nodes are starting to go down, and now he is able to play for a bit without gagging. Zak started reverse sneezing/wheezing this weekend, but his nodes remained normal. They are both on the mend. Thanks everyone for your kind words and well wishes, it meant a lot to us. With luck they will both be better for the beach next weekend!

Dark days of winter ahead. I’m not complaining if they look like this. #mountains #blackandwhite #fujifilm #fujixt2 #hiking #lake #alpinelakeswilderness #reflection #washingtonstate #clouds #pnwonderland

Hang in there...

“Don’t ever live vicariously.” | I went fishing... for the first time ever! Not only did I go fishing but I even caught some!!! And I gutted, cleaned, cooked, and ate one. Fresh mountain cutthroat trout MacGyverishly grilled over the open flame of a backpacking stove (because there was a fire ban) and served on the plastic packaging of a freeze dried camping meal is some of the best tasting food I’ve had 😆 It used up most of our fuel but was well worth it. These are all things that only a year ago I would not have done. Grateful for new experiences and and a more open mind. Thanks @stick_string_stick_spinner
