Happy Friday, team! Here’s one you’ll never see on @insta_repeat.😅 Layers of Cascades captured from 12,500 feet up on Rainier. These views must be earned. Hope you have a kick ass weekend...go do something amazing.🤘🏻

Had planned on doing some view hikes on my visit to Washington, but the fog wasn't allowing for much of a view. Decided to take the trail to Spray Falls instead and so glad I did...it was just beautiful!

Rainier hike con’t: Upon arriving at Ingraham Flats the second day, we settled into our tents that had been dug into the snow by the alpine guides. We had an early dinner around 4:00 (veggie burger for me) & were briefed about summit day. We retired to our tent, which had a front row seat to Little Tahoma Peak that juts out of Rainier. My tent mate (my new Colorado friend, Nicole) & I couldn’t sleep, so we shared stories about hiking, guys, & life. I finally fell asleep around 7:00 & slept soundly until 10:00 pm. Nicole & I started getting our gear ready because the guides would be rounding everyone up sometime between 11:00 p.m & 1:00 a.m to get ready for our summit push. More on the actual summit push and descent later. But I want to take a moment to acknowledge our 4 incredible female guides at @alpineascents: Carrie (lead), Robin, Ari, & Emily. The skill, patience, hard work, friendliness, and professionalism of each of them can’t be overstated. Alpine Ascents is one of 3 professional guide groups for Rainier. These guides take turns maintaining and creating the trails on Rainier, & they share the gombu at Camp Muir & the tent sites at Ingraham Flats. Ingraham is one of 25 glaciers on Rainier. The National Park Service describes glaciers as masses of ice that are heavy enough to actually flow like thick fluid. So glaciers are constantly moving down the mountain, sliding against the rock, breaking off chunks, & forming deep cracks called crevasses. Each day we could hear the glacier moving & rocks & ice crashing. This movement means the guide groups are repeatedly fixing the trail through the glacier. Rockfall will destroy the trail or the trail will break up entirely as the glacier moves. Tent sites are re-established every few days as the glacier gradually slides downhill. These responsibilities of re-establishing & maintaining the trails & basecamp are shared by the guide groups. A task they endure countless times throughout the season. Additionally, they haul all the tents & cooking gear up there. They don’t get paid enough, whatever it is. Without them, this trip wouldn’t have been possible.

Fairytale Land. I could live here, forever under the tree canopies.

I don’t care for the facades ppl spend their lives constructing around themselves to hide what they truly are, and I think online & social media as a whole promotes maybe not a totally dishonest view of your life, but snippets and highlights that don’t take into account the whole picture. We’re all broken, we all suffer, and there’s no greater truth than that. It’s easy to post about your triumphs online, but what about your failures? Anyone can use the limited scope of online and social media to portray an inaccurate narrative- and we see celebrity narcissists and news outlets do it every day- It’s not always purposeful or with ill intent, but it’s always happening. How does the collective psyche of our society benefit or suffer from this?
_
I don’t know. That’s a loaded question. It’s a blessing and a curse to have so much information shoved down your gullet everyday via our technologically miraculous smart Phones; But it’s unfortunate in the online landscape that generally clickbait & hype seems to beat substance & truth to the spotlight.
_
Long story longer, my point is, don’t let your perceptions of reality be distorted by the facades of perfection & highlight reels you see around you. Life is messy! You suck, I suck, Kylie Jenner sucks. We’re all eating a big shit sandwich here at some point. And you can’t sort yourself out or the world around you unless you accept the messiness. And it’s even harder to accept your messiness when everyone you see online ostensibly has everything sorted out & is cruising. For the most part they don’t and they’re not. Be honest, not perfect. That’s how you make your life better, is by seeking truth. You know what’s better than being internet famous or having a nice online aesthetic? Being real life hot & making your real life and the real lives of those around you better. It’s through being honest we can begin to address the messiness effectively and work towards sorting ourselves out IRL. Be honest, not perfect 👹👹😜🌌

Haven't been able to post much because I've been in Washington since Tuesday exploring the National Parks. We've already been to Olympic and Mt. Rainier (pictured here). Tomorrow we're headed to North Cascades! I'll resuming crafting and tumbler making when I return home. For now, I'm taking some adventure days 😘 also check out @adventures_with_laurlaur for some awesome hike reviews! #takemoreadventuredays #nationalparks #olympicnationalpark #mtrainiernationalpark #northcascadesnationalpark #personalizedtumbler #personalizedtumblers #custom #customcrafts #customglittertumbler #tumblers #madetoorder #etsy #onelessstraw #reusabletumblers #washington #vacation #customtumbler

Feeling anxiety for the first time in months means it’s time to retreat to the wilds.

When you're fabulous and you know it! I am pretty sure this marmot knows it. I also think his name might be Melvin. Or maybe it's a Margaret? (I am loving the new zoom lens. No critters were approached, fed or otherwise bribed into modeling for these shots.)

These guys! Through exhaustion & soreness, they still did the entire hike with us. Took us 5hrs to hike 8.2km. Now, they can brag to everyone! Lol. #skylinetrail #mtrainiernationalpark #hiking #70something #seniorparents #proud

At Mount Rainier, there is a place called Paradise.

Really haven't been diggin' all this smoke & haze from these fires, but a big thank you to all the people helping to fight & put them all out 🙏 Really makes me miss those nice clear days & hiking views. Hopefully the smoke clears soon. Maybe by September, we'll see ✊

I’m not going to lie. I almost didn’t get up for this sunrise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We drove to the trailhead the night before and we’re getting ready to start the hike when it started down pouring.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We decided to wait it out but it didn’t let up. We then decided to go to sleep and hike the trail in the morning with hopes it would clear up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I woke up, took one look outside and said “no way” but my friends were packing up and determined to go, so I decided to go too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We hiked through crazy fog and light rain for about an hour until we reached the ridge line. We could all see clear skies and our excitement filled the air. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was my first cloud inversion and it was spent with some amazing people! I can easily say, we got lucky on this one 🙌🏼

A collection started just two years ago. Moving to the #mountain #west twice (once for summer, once for good) has made these treasures so much more accessible. The #natonalparkservice is one of the best things the feds have ever done.
Not pictured: uncollected pins from parks I visited before starting this collection (#olympicnationalpark, #glaciernationalpark). Next up: #greatsmokymountains in October when I go for a conference!

Pins shown in order of first visit, top to bottom. Really did see an elk in #rockymountainnationalpark. The #hawaiivolcanoesnationalpark pin is thanks to a planetary field geology course I took last spring, a truly unforgettable experience! The beautiful box with jigsaw closure is #cedar by "wood you tell me" (wytm.com), found in the #mtrainiernationalpark gift shop ♥️ #unpopularopinion: #delicatearch in #archesnationalpark is overrated. #landscapearch is where it's at!

Hiked up to High Rock Point to honor my dad. It was beautiful and we saw an owl and a few beautiful lakes. It’s been one year since he’s been gone as of today. We love and miss you, dad ❤️
