Last night I brought home Chuck, my new adventure mobile. 2006 Toyota 4Runner SR5. Still I can't believe I found such a pristine SUV for as little money as I did! Thank you universe!🙏🏻❤🌈 #pnw #expawditions #toyota #toyota4runner #adventure

Probably one of the crowning glories of any photos I've ever taken. #patience paid off here. #getoutside #goxplr #canon70d #expawditions #bee#flowers#montana#photography #honey#nature

A funny thing happens in a hikers heart when they fly over their beloved mountains in a aircraft. You become inspired but defeated.
There below you as you cruise at 25,000 feet, is sprawling alpine landscape you have yet to explore.
Peaks so inviting you wish you could just be dropped below. There are enchanting pools of pristine snow melt, so clear that even from your all too small seat up high, you can make out the varying rocky shelfs and depths.
Just a glance at the thick evergreens hugging the slopes and filling the lush valleys brings a full body memory of smell. The cool and clean prickle of close proximity to running water, where the dampness mixes with the sweet and salty sweat of your body, bringing an awareness of an oddly comforting mountain musk. The earthy and sticky aroma of the trees and dirt, especially when warmed summer pine is inhaled. And the ever changing stages of new growth and decomposition a cacophony of existence.
Yes, those mountains begging to be quietly explored. Summits wanting to be respectfully achieved and forests gently wandered. Yet the mountaineers heart is humbled and set contemplative. For never in a life time can all those ridges feel the weight of your body carrying a loaded pack, many trails will not echo with the taps of your poles, your ears will not hear the calls of marmots, pica or elk. You will not breathe in the clean air at the top of every peak, nor let out a conquering whoot to the lowland abyss below.
But this is the relationship you've chosen, one where many of your adventures are in daydreams and memories on the worn out soles of your boots.

Not a fancy amazing #adventure shot, but there is something about this view that just brings #peace. I love #missoula #montana.

The #earth sighs while the #sun, that had bathed the day in scorching heat, sinks below the western hills and bellows of cool #mountain air bring relief under radiant stars.

When I'm not involved in #outdoor #shenanigans I'm dreaming up shenanigans. Like that #badass #unicorn I am.

Most people who love to #hike are so #excited they want to walk like this, but we keep in all inside. #pnw #nature #expawditions #goexplore #adventure #pnwgirl #muppet #dance #traillife #getoutside #life

Sometimes it's the #littlethings on the #trail that make it worth the effort. #northcascades #summer #mountains #expawditions #dew #nature #pnw #pretty #bloom

Nothing like the sound of sizzling #bacon and #banjo while sitting around the #campfire last night. Another great #rafting trip! #upperleftusa #expawditions #pnw #river #camping

Heading out this morning to get another paddle high five on the Sauk!!!! #getoutside #expawditions #rafting #summer#riverrafting #goexplore #badass #pnw #pnwgirl #upperleftusa @wildwater.river.guides

Several years ago, I #challenged myself and became strict #vegan for almost 3 years to try to combat the damage a #pituitarytumor did to my body. I let up a bit in the last few years while traveling and managing some #life and #health stuff (again). But I know I perform my best when I eat clean on the trail. So I eat 80-90% vegan and have an obsession with #larabar. #happy #trails my friends! Eat well,live life and love yourself. #food #expawditions #yummy #traillife #getoutside
