There aren’t days that feel much better than this. After setting up camp in a tent that got blown away, packing back up in whipping sand, fighting against what felt like a ton of failure as weather continued to just play against us, we got something special. Sunshine fought through the storm to dry our soaked belongings and brighten our outlook. It isn’t always easy, chasing something in the great and rapidly changing environments of the outdoors, but when nature puts us in check, we’re often rewarded with these moments that can only put a smile on our faces and cause us to laugh at all the trouble. Thankful to go through these experiences with good friends and for the constant lessons in patience. #whyihike | #ebcontributor | #liveyouradventure | @eddiebauer

Most of my hikes are planned with the utmost detail in mind. Where we will camp, how far we will hike per day, etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But sometimes the best hikes are the ones that came completely by surprise. @danielletyra_ and I had found that spot by accident when we pulled over to rest one time awhile back and it completely took our breath away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Be prepared to be surprised. #whyihike #ebcontributor #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer

Catching the last of the days sun from our campsite high above the fiords. Some experiences involve getting outside of your comfort zone, I find that the more you do it the bigger that comfort zone becomes enabling you to push both your body and mind to places you may have previously thought not possible. This particular camping trip definitely put me outside of my comfort zone, the exposure up here affected me more than expected but at the same time I found it exciting. High winds however ultimately forced us not to summit on this occasion choosing safety first. Although I enjoy that element of risk which is often inherent while spending time in places like this, if I feel unsafe or that risk becomes elevated to a place I’m not comfortable with I won’t hesitate to turn back. After all these mountains will still be here another day @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #LiveYourAdventure #EBcontributor

“If you inherently long for something, become it first. If you want gardens, become the gardener. If you want love, embody love. If you want mental stimulation, change the conversation. If you want peace, exude calmness. If you want to fill your world with artists, begin to paint. If you want to be valued, respect your own time. If you want to live ecstatically, find the ecstasy within yourself. This is how to draw it in, day by day, inch by inch.” -Victoria Erickson ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Fire above and ice below. This week we were stepping across one of the North Cascades’ 300+ active glaciers as the sun dipped below the western horizon. What an amazing range, a place that’s become a second home to me. @eddiebauer #whyihike #ebcontributor

How many stars? Posted by @ryanresatka 📍 Sedona, Arizona This is probably one of the better times of year to hike in the desert before it starts getting way too hot. This final location marked the end of our trip, so I knew I had to make the push to see another amazing view. Some sections of this hike were almost straight up climbing, which made it really fun. It’s definitely a new favorite in the area. I had been to Sedona several times before, however I had not seen it from up here which was quite refreshing. This is definitely #WhyIHike - to reach those amazing views. With summer right around the corner I’m so excited for so many more to come.

We started the day at 60 ft in elevation, hopped on a flight to Denver, drove into the mountains and 5 hrs after being near sea level, went on an incredible hike at 12,000 ft. Even though I stayed hydrated throughout the day and hiked at a comfortable pace, I got altitude sickness. By the time we got to our cabin I felt super nauseous and had the worst headache I’d ever had in my life. Instead of exploring the little mountain town at night like we wanted, we had to cancel our dinner plans and I laid in bed the rest of the night trying to force myself to sleep to avoid the waves of nausea and the throbbing pain in my head. When we’re on vacation I tend to push my limits to make the most of our time off. Clearly I pushed a little too hard this time. Although I will say, the amazing views on the hike made it pretty much worth it.

Самый кайф сна в палатке, это слышать природу вокруг. Засыпаешь под звёздами, вокруг шелест деревьев и песни ветра. А утром просыпаешься под пение птиц. А иногда лежишь и слушаешь, как стучат по ткани капли дождя. ⠀ Бесконечно люблю все это, даже не смотря на то, что довольно часто, мне неудобно лежать😄 ⠀ А в этот раз мы ещё опробовали способ подстелить еловые лапы под палатку, чтобы было теплее. Получилась пружинистая еловая перина! И это было божественно!

Only a few days after getting home from South America, I found myself setting up camp on top of a local mountain here in BC. With warm temperatures and the spring season upon us, a few challenges arise when it comes to hiking. Wet snow, faster flowing water, possibility of avalanches—to name a few. - Even with this in mind, the glorious weather we’re currently having enticed me to get outside. Yes, my tent got a bit more wet then it usually does. Yes, it was tough hiking in snow that felt like mashed potatoes. Yes, we had to be more careful and aware. But hey, I saw an amazing sunset, I was in the mountains, I made backcountry tacos for the first time and hung out with one of my best friends♥️ #WhyIHike @eddiebauer #LiveYourAdventure #EBContributor - Wearing my @eddiebauer IgniteLite Flux Stretch Hooded Jacket aka the best mid-layer I’ve ever owned.

Adventure, by definition, is a bold, exciting, sometimes risky venture. It’s about doing something that may have risk, but the reward is beyond worth it. That is #whyihike. Hiking is the complete adventure. In Canada, I was able to test out the new @eddiebauer BC Evertherm Down Jacket, which has an innovative new insulation exclusive to EB, called “Thindown,” which replaces traditional, high-loft down with ultra thin down sheets, limiting bulk and baffles, but retaining the same level of warmth. It’s like wearing a waterproof hug, and it’s quickly become one of my favorite jackets.

Summer goal: 50 tent nights! @eddiebauer #WhyIHike Whether fastpacking a long distance hiking route or connecting day hikes from a lakeside campsite, we always value nights spent outside. This summer, we're aiming for 50 nights in our Eddie Bauer Stargazer tent. After back-to-back trips to British Columbia, we're already reached 10 nights and summer hasn't truly arrived. What's your summer adventure goal? #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

Can’t really find the words to describe the feeling of being on top of a mountain with your best friends. This past weekend’s summit was one for the books - 360° views, a beautiful fire lookout, and laughs to last the night 🏔 - #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor #whyihike @eddiebauer

As the snow melts off the flowers start to bloom. Beginning in the city with daffodils and cherry blossoms, then spreading like tentacles out to the hills of the Columbia River Gorge, where you’ll see balsamroot and lupine. You can experience flowers for months in the PNW depending on choice of elevation. In the summer, I head to the mountains to see alpine blooms like avalanche lily and Indian paintbrush. The pops of color add so much beauty to the landscape and are such a joy to experience. Where’s your favorite place to see wildflowers? #whyihike @eddiebauer #EBContributor

Approaching the Fitz Roy massif from the town of El Chalten, we watched the clouds whip through and around the highest peaks. Each step added to the anticipation, knowing we’d be near the base soon, looking up at an otherworld of ice and granite. #whyihike @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

Some recent film from the Olympics, such a magical place...It was such a blast shooting on my dinky K100 instead of my DSLR. It feels way less intrusive and more natural, I’m definitely looking forward to experiment more with film. For this trip, we were definitely on the run. The peninsula has an intriguing variety of beaches and mountains, we were determined to hike both in a couple days. We still have only dipped our toes in to all this park has to offer. @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #EbContributor

Чуйский тракт входит в десятку самых красивых дорог мира по версии nat-geo🔝 ⠀ Идея проехать по нему через весь Алтай появилась внезапно в феврале. В марте я купила билеты в Новосибирск, а через неделю сломала ногу. Посчитала, что гипс до поездки мне снять успеют и решила билеты не сдавать🤪 ⠀ Сначала я планировала весь путь проделать автостопом, но, когда окончательно выяснилось, что Пашка работает в праздники и ехать не может, план пришлось поменять. Морально готовилась к тому, что возможно моё путешествие будет одиночным. ⠀ А потом за две недели до поездки мне удалось вытащить с собой одну из сестер🤘🏻 ⠀ И я безумно счастлива, что мы с Натулей провели вдвоём эту чудесную неделю в горах♥️

When I booked a little cabin in a remote part of south east Iceland a few months ago I had no idea just how magical it would be.

Who else can’t sit still for long while traveling to new places? 🙋🏼‍♀️ We were in the Moab area for 4 days and had planned to stay an extra day, but while watching sunset in Canyonlands National Park we looked at each other and said let’s head to Bryce Canyon. So we hopped in the car at 830pm and headed for Bryce which was 4 hours away. If anyone knows the roads from Moab to Bryce they are FULL of deer so that was quite the drive. The next day we spent 7+ hours hiking around Bryce Canyon. We covered 27.9kms and 1,032m of elevation gain. This place blew our minds. At around supper time we headed for Zion National Park which was about 1.5 hours away, found a place to set up camp outside the park and rested before getting up again for another day of hiking! @eddiebauer #whyihike #ebcontributor #liveyouradventure

There's a subtle disconnect that I search for when exploring the outdoors. Whether it's disconnecting from the noise and business of the city, or just to re-set. It's something I believe we owe ourselves everyday - to let everything go, even for a moment, and just be present. This is one of many reasons #whyihike @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

Kilometres and kilometres later. Sweaty. Dirty and dusty. Tired = True happiness 🖤 Call me crazy @eddiebauer #whyihike #ebcontributor #liveyouradventure * * @crp13 caught a little behind the scenes photo of me takin a selfie 🤣 so thought I’d throw that in there. Lookin’ forward I really want to behind posting more content of what ‘behind the scenes’ looks like and the reality of ‘instagram’. Whether that be unedited photos, videos, funny moments etc. This trip so far has been AMAZING and I am sad it’s going to be coming to an end here soon. Though Utah won’t be going anywhere and I am telling myself I will be back 🙋🏼‍♀️

”It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed, is you.” -Eric Roth ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ I grew up on the side of a hill in a house with big windows overlooking the Rocky Mountains. The nearest town had a population just shy of 1,500 and when our four way stop was replaced with a traffic light it made national news - stealing the soul of our beloved small town. As soon as I could I moved away, to seemingly the furthest I could go without leaving the country. Its been over a decade since then, since that house on the hill was my permanent address. These days I stop by my parents’ house a handful of times a year, for Sunday dinners and doctors appointments - or unannounced with friends after a day of hiking in the Highwood. Last weekend was one of the former, I stayed for dinner and then the night. In the morning I took a walk up the hill that was the backdrop of my childhood - retracing the steps that led me up to what I remember being a feat akin to summiting Everest. The funny thing is that the expedition, the one that used to take all day and be filled with stops for investigating every single crocus flowers, stuffing my pickets full of rocks and twigs and taking mandatory sustenance breaks for fistfuls of honey nut cheerios, took all of five minutes. I reached the top and felt a little bit sad, a little bit silly and pretty nostalgic for a time when ten feet from my front door, within earshot of my parents, I was able to set out on the adventure of a lifetime. #whyihike #ebcontributor #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer

Momentarily traded mountain views for beach front property. Sometimes those short distance, low commitment excursions are my favorite. Now that the days are stretching out, there’s plenty of time to take off after work on a Friday, drive for a couple hours, hike a mile or so, catch a sunset and spend the night far from the noise of other humans. This is one thing I love about summer and another reason #whyihike. Adventure doesn’t have to be epic to be worthwhile. It can be you and your pals, some happy pups, a warm sleeping bag, the smell of campfire in your hair and the satisfying feeling of sand between your toes. • @eddiebauer #EBContributor

Something peculiar and very encouraging caught my eye yesterday - so the trail to Delicate Arch is 1.5 miles long. Heavily trafficked and very wide open. Hundreds of people a day, if not thousands walk it from the parking lot to the arch and back. And I couldn’t help but notice not a single piece of trash was anywhere along the trail. Maybe they have a good clean up crew, but I didn’t see anyone cleaning. Maybe it all blew away, but it wasn’t windy. Whatever it is, it was a sight to see. // @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #EBContributor

This is why we chose to #LiveSpontivly and connect others with what nature has to offer. What @brookewillson has to say really motivates us: ⠀ Not all classrooms have four walls 🖤 I have learned SO much from Mother Nature herself. One of the greatest educators. As I finish up my teaching degree today I can’t help but reflect on this. Yes there is important learning to be done inside a ‘typical’ classroom, with prescribed curriculum BUT the outdoors and everyday life have SOOOO much to offer and I hope to bring my passion and love for fitness and the outdoors into my own teaching, inspiring students and staff to reap the benefits of the outdoors! @eddiebauer Thanks @itsbigben for the photos! #whyihike #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

One of the things I love about New Zealand is the vast network of alpine and remote huts scattered around the country. A large number of these are available to the public on either a first come, first serve system with a small fee, or an online booking system. During my 6 weeks traveling around NZ I had planned to stay in a handful of these backcountry huts. I wasn’t able to make it to all of the huts I had on list this time but of the ones I did make it to, what sticks with me is not just the charm of these cute little huts, or the breathtaking views, but instead the people I met and the conversations I had. From foreigners to locals alike everyone I came across and interacted with had a story to tell. Just another reason #WhyIHike ! @eddiebauer #LiveYourAdventure #EBcontributor

This spring is our third in a row spent exploring the Southwest United States + each visit brings new appreciations + experiences with it! For Metsä she learned that she loves to watch ravens as they soar high above our heads! Until this year’s adventure I had never been too cold during the day or seen much in the way of rain when in the desert! This week changed all that! It was so cold while we were exploring in Utah! (2°C at times) During the day big storms would brew in the distance and make their appearance over us at night. These storms put on quite the show with lightning, thunder and torrential downpours! Luckily we were warm + dry tucked into our sleeping bags inside the canopy of our truck! I guess that this is one of my favourite things about returning to a place you enjoy - you never know what weather you’ll get from year to year, even in the desert! Be sure to check out my story + cruise on over to the last slide in this carousel to see a time lapse of one of the storms we experienced! #EbContributor | #WhyIHike | #sponsored | @eddiebauer | #LiveYourAdventure

Word on the street is that both Oregon + Washington have some pretty nifty Fire Lookouts and I’m hoping to check a few out this summer! Any locals got a fav to recommend? Despite the fact that my favourite lookout here in Alberta is super fun to get to by 4x4, it is also inhabited by a rather hungry crew of marmots, so I think I’m gonna leave them to do their thing for a while!
