I Can See For Miles 🎵 These are the Three Siula Lakes, one of the big highlights of hiking the Huayhuash. It's been a humbling experience walking here, in a beautiful part of the world with very little infrastructure. Sometimes I wonder how long it will last before the so called eco pods, hotels and coffee shops move in. For now I will enjoy these precious moments! Photo by David Weeden 📷

It's been 4 months since my first solo backpack to this hilltop. I have never spent the night in a lookout before, and the one here is closed to the public. I hope to get that chance next week when I climb to the top of a mountain that's been in my sights (literally, on my commute home from work) for nearly 6 years. Needless to say I'm super excited!! . . . . #glacierpeakwilderness #northcascades #washingtontrails #explorewashstate #whyihike #wanderwashington #getoutside #optoutside #backpacking #backcountrycamping #pnwonderland #pnw #pnwdiscovered #pnwhiking #womenwhohike #herpnwlife #minersridgetrail #minersridgelookout

Warum liebe ich es zu #wandern ? 😊 Weil es mich glücklich macht. Weil es die Dinge in eine andere Perspektive rückt. Weil es mich vom stressigen Alltag ablenkt. Weil man erkennt was einem wichtig ist und was nicht. Weil es einen fokussiert. Weil es zum nachdenken anregt. Weil es ein Abenteuer ist. Weil man danach eine tiefe Dankbarkeit dafür empfindet, wie schön es sein kann in einem warmen, weichen Bett zu schlafen mit einem Dach über dem Kopf. Und weil ich einfach nicht genug davon kriegen kann. Auch nach der längsten und anstrengensten Tour, könnte ich schon nächste Woche direkt wieder los laufen! . . . . #mountainaddict #bergwelten #bestvacation #italianlandscapes #dolomiten #derbergruft #dolomitiunesco #wandernmachtglücklich #wanderung #gebirge #frischeluft #wanderfolk #ourcamplife #ourlonelyplanet #whywelovenature #whyihike #climbingmountains #hikingtrails #bergpic #trekkinglife #outdoorslife #likeamountaingirl #womenwhohike #outdoorgirl #hikinggirl #utazobazis #climbinglife #mountainlovers #happygirlsaretheprettiest

Looking for a place where you can feel normal in the city of make-believe? I find happiness in jumping through cracks of boulders and comfort sitting on the old scratchy bark of a strong tree. #painting #canyons #oldtree #home #cityofangels

Time flies when you’re lost in the mountains. It’s been a hot 4 years since I packed my whole life into my wee car, drove over 5000km across the country, and landed in my forever home. In case you can’t tell, I’m a little obsessed with this place 🙈

Thank you Whistler for making this nomadic soul feel like she has a place where she belongs 💛

HST Day 6 ~ We knew we had a short hike so didn’t get on the trail until 10am. It didn’t feel easy though. Our previous day of all-day hiking and elevation gain had taken its toll on us. It was warm and primarily exposed as we climbed out of the tree line. Arriving relatively early to Guitar Lake, we found a pretty cool spot (our last campsite!), ate our lunch and set up camp. ⛺️ I walked around to check out the lake. I scoped out exactly where I wanted to go in, a shallow sandy shelf with a deep-ish drop-off for diving beyond, next to flat warm rocks for sunbathing. 🏖 Kristal videotaped my dive in. It was COLD! 🥶 When I got out, I couldn’t find my glasses…Kristal reviewed video and said they were on my face. Oh gosh, I had to go back in that cold water! 😳After a lot of looking and dramatic worrying (“Whitney with no glasses?”, “OMG, I’m not going to be able to drive home!”) we finally found them at the edge of the sandy shelf. Whew! 🎉Adrenaline and elation hit like a drug. I was so relieved! We hung out on the rocks as, one at a time, each of our trail family jumped in … and got out even faster. 💨 . . As it got a little colder and breezier, we all went back to our camps to organize for our early (EARLY) departure. Later, we all gathered to watch the sunset over the Kaweah Ridge, only to hear a SAR helicopter up on the Whitney Trail behind us. As we waited for the sun to set, we continued to watch the rescue, chat about plans for our Mt. Whitney hike, etc. These two collections of moments with our little trail family were my favorite from the day. I am sad I don’t have any photos of these simple moments, but we were just enjoying them. ✨ As soon as the sun set, we said good night and went to bed. We all had an early and long day ahead of us! 🏔 . . 09/14/19 Crabtree Meadows to Guitar Lake, 2.7 miles 1211’ gain, although it felt longer and harder ( #TWSS ) Photo: Guitar Lake, our final camp location . . #wildenernessbadass #traceys_journey #highsierratrail #guitarlake

I’ve been having a difficult week. Sadness. Despair. Hopelessness. Recently it’s been familiar emotional terrain, yet also unlike me. My true nature is to feel inspired. To feel lit up. Yet, current circumstances have dampened my enthusiasm for life. When invited by friends to go on a bushwhacking mission, I was reluctant. And grumpy. But another dear friend reminded me, “Go outside. It’s where the magic is.” And after 5.5 hours of traipsing through wild forest with decomposing earth that disintegrated beneath each footstep, handholds that broke in my grasp, and slippery, mossy, steep rock that required extra firm grip (and nerve), somehow I managed to forget my woes. In fact, I think I even managed a smile. Actually, I probably laughed out loud a couple of times, too. She was right. It’s magic out there. #adventurism #adventureinspired #hiking #hike #hikebc #whyihike #hikingadventure #hikeforlife #hikingadventures #bushwhacking #forestlover #forestadventure #nature #naturelover #pnwhiking #icebreakernz #thenorthface #blackdiamond #sheadventures #womenwhoexplore #exploremore #womenwhohike #howesound #bowenisland #bowenislandadventures

Delta lake trail - The best and the worst 10 mile hike ever. Wyoming is a bear country. We couldn't carry a bear spray due to last minute decisions. So we decided to be around people to avoid any and also it was summer, odds were low. Up ahead into 3 miles, a guy tells us "be careful, there's a bear on your left at the next turn" Our worst nightmare came through. We decided to step back and wait for a group of bravehearts to lead us. Luckily we found a bunch of people walking our way and we kept our eyes open continued to walk ahead. A minute passes by and no sign of bear. As I wondered if it went back into the forest, I feel a sudden shiver down my spine and see this black hairy creature literally at 3 feet distance on my left slope. I slowly look at it from the corner of my eye trying to keep my shit together. My heart melts as this cute little black bear didn't give a shit about people walking by and adorably kept munching on huckleberries. All the fear of bear attacks I had in my head after having watched the movie 'Backcountry' just vanished. My faith restored in the coexistence of humans and bears. Happy to have encountered a bear, I went on to face the toughest climb of my life. Reaching this Alpine lake required us to cross two boulder fields, one at 75 degree steep. I always thought resting a few minutes helped go long. But the hell that didn't work here. I rest for 2 minutes and take 2 more steps and I'm completely exhausted again unable to even lift a finger. Never gonna forget that excruciating pain in my knees. Somehow I crawl up taking thousands of breaks and see this pristine glacial lake(out of nowhere) at the base of grand Teton. And I forget all the bears and all the miles climbed. The summit is so fucking worth it!! . . . . . #grandtetonnationalpark #nationalparks #wyoming #grandtetons #deltalake #whyihike #deltalaketrail #usinterior #idhikethat #vsco #discover_wyoming #findyourpark #thatsWY #picoftheday #optoutside #allaboutadventures #wilderness #ventureout #alltrails #purewyoming #instagood #wildernessnation #wildernessculture #moose #jacksonhole #lastingvisuals #currytraveler #choosemountains #gohiking #hikersofinstagram

I love camping for the reward after a long day of hiking. And I don’t mean the irresistible feeling of accomplishing something grand, emotionally and physically challenging. Okay, that is actually the main reason ✨ But secondly, the solid excuse to scarf down a mountain meal afterwards. I mean, seriously. Have y’all tried pad thai around the campfire? Burrowed in a hammock with crème brûlée? Girl loves her food 🍲 #adventurehealsthesoul

Sometimes the hubs tells me he is snapping pics and sometimes he doesn't...this is me hiking and on my phone. Yep, I am one of those #hikersontheirphones ...sometimes! 😎 I believe I was checking our stats before we headed down from the summit. Needed to know if we deserved the cheeseburger or just a regular sandwich! It's the little things that keep me motivated on and out-and-back hike! 🍔 ⁠ ⁠ 📷: @hikethenwine (sneaky hubs)⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #smilinginsonoma #wwhmember #everytrailconnects #freshairandfreedom #thegreatoutdoors #getoutstayout #localadventurer #outdoormaster #lovewhereyoulive #exploremore #takemoreadventures #womenwhoexlpore #womenwhohike #hikelikeawoman #sheadventures #happyhiker #sonoma_valley #bayareahiking #castateparks #sonoma #sonomacounty #viewfromthetrail #ospreypacks #findyourselfoutside #whyihike #hikingviews #peoplewhohike #hikingandhappiness #hikemoreworryless

Sometimes pictures don’t do it justice.. and sometimes they just do.. I’m not used to sky’s like this when hiking in the whites, but these two days would shape up to be two of the best weather days I’ve had out here. Almost all 7 peaks were (exception being owls head, rain/partly cloudy/then sun)almost all sunny blue filled skies. (Start of sunrise, 4000ft up ✅, at the Garfield campsite, 9•13•18) Dragging ass this AM, but it hurt so good👊🏽😓 . . . . #wmnf #nh #whitemountainsnh #mountgarfield #wmnfhikers #wmnf_hikers #nh48 #sunset #mountains #view #optoutside #goeast #lettheoutsidein #beanoutsider #hike #hikers #hiking #hikingadventures #mymadness #hikenh #hike365 #whyihike #hiketeam8ate #adventure #getoutside #gooutside #livebravely #bpmag #gohiking #staywild

Best way to recover from an ultramarathon? Backpacking and views like this!! 😍 I didn't really believe photos of this place until I saw it with my own eyes this past weekend. This place is just magical, it did not seem real!! I still can't believe these clear turquoise blue waters exist in the middle of a desert canyon?! . . . . . . . . . #havasupai #supai #havasufalls #optoutside #explorearizona #igsouthwest #wildernessculture #modernoutdoors #yourshotphotographer #hikergirl #sheadventures #peoplewhoadventure #adventurecollective #womenwhoexplore #sheexplores #nature_seekers #worldbestshot #earthpics #welivetoexplore #earthoutdoors #whyihike #fujishooters #myfujilove #fujifilmglobal #artofvisuals #mthrworld #natgeotravelphoto

One of our absolute favorite hikes in the Banff, Canada area was actually in Yoho National Park. It started with a climb that wound through a dense forest and ended overlooking a huge, beautiful glacial valley. What do you think? Is this amazing or what? #yohonationalpark #parkscanada #visitcanada
