New blog post up about @meg.rosaindica and my trip to Mt. St. Helens (link in profile). Had an amazing time exploring the My. Margaret Backcountry and getting some splendid views of our Mt. St. Helens. I talk about my past trips to Mt. St. Helens and difficulties I have faced with her. So excited to have a backpacking trip in the blast zone that was all good. My curse has been lifted! I mean, technically it got super stormy overnight but it felt like small beans compared to the others... . . . . . . . #exploretocreate #visualscollective #alpinebabes #beautifuldestinations #theoutbound #upperleftusa #throughthepines #mountaingirls #pnwcollective #mountainisout #stayandwander #adventurestartshere #neverstopexploring #wearethewild #forceofnature #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #findyourselfoutside #northwestisbest #mountainsandtrees #alphacollective #sheexplores #wildernesspeople #goatworthy #defendersoffun #wildernessculture #sonya6000 #rei1440project #outandbeyond #dirtbagdarling

Of all the places to travel my favorite are by foot. Sometimes though it takes more power to get where you are going. Traveling by plane can be one of the most stressful parts of a persons life! Flight delays, lost bags, expensive snacks, everything adds up and can make a dream trip devolve into a nightmare. I've had my fair share of travel mishaps and have learned some things along the way which I share on my latest blog post. Hopefully it can save you a headache the next time you fly -link in profile. #travel #traveltips #travelblog

Classes start today, work starts today, vacation is over 😫 somehow chuffing in Nats Three Start Roof still sounds more appealing. 📸 @sabinayeee

Tomorrow we leave this country like a moving object in a long exposure photo. Aka. Mixed feelings.

I feel as at home on this trail as I do sitting right here on my couch. Well, except for that one rocky section...

One of my favorite parts about backpacking is carrying everything you need for the night on your back. It makes me feel strong and capable, and the simplicity that stays. I love the familiar weight when I put it on at the trailhead; it feels like coming home. Perhaps my most prized possession? A home that can take me anywhere. And so dirty after spending two days in pumice and ash. Also, this is totally a rad summit, even though it looks like the edge of a parking lot. Summits don't have very many high places to put my tripod... . . . . . . . . #visualscollective #exploretocreate #upperleftusa #beautifuldestinations #theoutbound #alpinebabes #stayandwander #wearethewild #neverstopexploring #forceofnature #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #mountaingirls #northwestisbest #seeyououtthere #mountainsandtrees #wanderwashington #alphacollective #sheexplores #forgeyourownpath #defendersoffun #goatworthy #wildernessculture #sonya6000 #rei1440project #thatpnwlife #wildernessbabes #adventurevisuals #andshesdopetoo

No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable- from them comes silence and awe. They are not like any other trees we know.//John Steinbeck ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀mcm? Yea, MountainChicks Crush Monday. Took a group of ladies to hike among giants for my first official ambassador led hike. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #amongthewild #mtnchicks #howloften #peoplwwhohike #forceofnature #defendersoffun #optoutside #neverstopexploring #rei1440project #idratherbeinnature #in2nature #staywild #nakedplanet #landscapelovers #landscape_lovers #todsl #adventurenthusists #letskeepitwild #landscapephotography #52hikechallenge2017 #hikrlife #outdoorwomen #HerWanderfulLife #werehikers #ladyadventures #womenwhohike #wildernessbabes #andshesdopetoo #gltlove

In case you didn't have the proper solar eclipse glasses or the proper solar eclipse lens filter and you live in Phx. Like me!! Here's what you missed w/ the naked lens. If you ask me it created a pretty cool halo eclipse effect. No filters added & captured at 10:33am on top of Squaw peak MTN when the sun was apparently covered at its max .70 of totality. ✌🏼 #solareclipse #hikeaz #exploreon #neverstopexploring #earth

So I didn't get to see the solar eclipse in person, but I did go to a place that felt like another planet. The Stalactite Cave Nature Reserve.
