When on the trail, it’s so easy to look ahead and up. Slowing down brings a wonder to be seen. Slow down we move too fast.

I saw the thunderstorm making it’s way for me from behind the long narrow ridge lines of the Allegheny’s. I watched as the clouds opened up and let sheets of precipitation shower the mountains. The gold of the setting sun shone through breaks in the squall as thunder shook the trees. The more golden hour fought with the storm for center stage, the more beautiful the rain became. Then, this happened... it was as if Mother Nature decided to rain gold across those ridges, and I was the only lucky idiot (standing in a thunderstorm with my camera on the side of a mountain) that was privy to the show. ✨

For my big three-oh birthday, my sweet @darcejaeger surprised me with a backcountry trip out to Desolation Wilderness! I had told him that I didn’t want anything other than to be out in the mountains for my birthday. So, he took care of the permits, created a map of our route and brought cake and light up balloons! I also had no clue that he invited friends so when I walked to my car the morning of, I saw movement and thought, “great, it looks like homeless people broke into my car and now I probably won’t be able to go” hooray for friends hiding in my car and scaring me! 🤣😘❤️

We took the Bayview Trailhead and made camp at Fontanellis Lake. My friends found an awesome spot which gave us a slight view of Lake Tahoe and Upper Velma Lake.

Sitting and standing here at Cascade Locks, holy moly. •



We just did some major mileage in Oregon on the PCT as we continue forward on the Calendar Year Triple Crown Hike this year •



Someone made a post recently about appreciating the little things. We've been going so many miles now I've seen a lot even though we hike early to Late •



A friend (@trail_snacks) on trail asked about berries on trail. I told him they'd be late this year. Well that was a bit of an early statement too...well sort of •



The next morning on the climb up to Timberline I noticed some darker colors on the huckleberry plants...then a few more. Well these were the first two I picked for the season. •



It wasn't a big patch but they were there. I still stand by the fact that the berries will start to come in later in the summer and August will be bursting with flavor. •



To pct2018 folks I won't day where this patch is but keep your eyes out between the Warm River and Timothy Lake in Oregon 😉 •



Oh and please stop by the Cascade Locks Ale House, Jules (@julesinthegorge) & Co are such awesome humans and you have to try the hiker trash burger, tell them the Prodigy sent you! •



Tomorrow we enter Washington, whoa, still can't believe it but will update the post before heading on the climb. •

Craving some cooler temps or a lake trip 🛶 Where’s everyone adventuring this weekend?

Loving these Avatar mountains in Kanbula National Park!

Iceberg Lake in Glacier National Park, Montana. The thin, sharp edged mountain ridges visible in the background is called an Arete. The result of thousands of years of glaciers carving out the mountains. #iceberglake #glaciernationalpark #glaciers #montana #america #usa🇺🇸 #visitglacier #visitmontana #lake #hiking #rei #outdoors #backpackermag #nationalpark #arete #roam #mountainhardwear #tasc #merrell
