Throwback Thursday: I'll admit, I miss the moutains. Where I spent 7 months away from civilization. This here was my favorite spot where I loved to lay down and rest after I tied up my horse, high up on a switchback that I called my "lunch spot" 8,500+ft. 🤠 #throwbackthursday #tbt #wyoming #cowboy #wyominglife #views #windriverrange #mountains #middleofnowhere #theoldwest #theamericanwest #picturesdontdojustice

Having hiked the #CDT through #GlacierNationalPark in September, now I'm tempted to traverse the CDT through the #WindRiverRange. Saw lots of CDT thru-hikers in #Glacier, all said it and the Winds were the two highlights. Anyone done it? #backpacking #Wyoming #mountains #nature

The deeper you go
the wilder you feel
the simpler the path
the freer you are.

The Wind Rivers are home to all the things I love....native Cutts, Golden Trout, bears, elk, deer, moose, grouse and some even say Big Foot. It is also our backyard and where we call home. The winter is in full effect and snow rules the board right now but soon, light will start to beat darkness and the race to cool, clean water will be on. Come on summer!

Apparently we missed #internationalmountainday yesterday, so here’s a pretty mountain photo from @nathanabauman to make up for our oversight

Happy #womenswearwednesday! ⠀
The holiday season is upon us and sometimes you just need something soft and cozy to get through the day. Enter the luscious Athena Pullover from @kuhl. Listen: it's like jammies. But like, CLASSY jammies. Sounds like a winner to me. ⠀

As I hiked alone into the Winds, I stopped and chatted with a man on his way out. He reminded me of my late grandpa Les Viereck. Tall and lanky, an easy, quiet smile, unkempt white hair and a short, friendly white beard, an external frame army-surplus-style pack from the 1970s or 80s, jingling pots and gear hanging from its many straps. He told me he'd been snowed in, tentbound for a few days, celebrated his sixtieth birthday alone in his tent and loved every minute. He said with some emotion and reverence that he'd been coming into these mountains his whole life and asked where I was headed. I told him my plan and he looked off into the distance. "When I first set foot on the knife point glacier decades ago, it reached a full mile further down than it does today. It's changing up there." He'd watched climate change affect these mountains firsthand.
Yesterday was the United Nations designated Mountain Day. Mountains matter for watersheds, wildlife + biodiversity, economies, and shared heritage. And retreating glaciers + ascending treelines are like a canary in the coal mine. For those of us who live, work, or play in the mountains, the immediacy of climate change's impacts should be evident and urgent. Whether we donate to organizations like #protectourwinters, volunteer our time to help, spread awareness and advocate for policy shifts, make changes in our lifestyles, or all of the above, let's make it more than just one day a year. #mountainsmatter

We missed the official date, but around here we like to celebrate International Mountain Day year round! Mama Gaia isn't just near and dear to our hearts, she's deeply imbeded in them. We can't tell the difference between her heartbeat and ours and that's how we like it! Happy Mountain Day! #internationalmountainday #optoutside #liveoutdoors #discoverearth #pachamama #windriverrange #thatswy #fueledbytrailbutter #fueledbylove #tanktheservicedog #seizuredog #traildog #adventuredog #husky #continentaldividetrail #embracethebrutality

Just kidding, I love you.
