Week 5 completed a total of 21.9 miles; making up for previous week 👌🏼 What are your thoughts when you first reach your summit? Mine? “ we made it! How gorgeous this view but shit still gotta hike it back now” 😂 Happy Monday y’all @aghany2334 thanks for being my photographer for the day! …… @_jenny_jen3 😇 #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #challenge #heart #inspiring #december #rockypeak #mountain #courage
May not be what I generally refer to a mountain, but a mountain nonetheless as it’s challenging hilly trails still make it one heck of a day’s hike. The views here may not be the sierras or my snowy days but still gives me the feeling that I need; away from city life. #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #challenge #heart #inspiring #december #boneymountain #mountain #courage
New Year’s Day hike. Always the right way to start it off. That feeling when you wake up in the morning, oh so cold, streets so quiet and the trails empty without a single soul. Almost feels like you have the world to yourself. Peaceful way to start maybe next time I will wake up to my camp ⛰⛺️🏕 Last week I had maybe a mile of actual hiking up to to snow summit so really felt like none so my December total was 46.8/750 miles, way below what I wanted but it was definitely a start! Let’s keep going 🥾🥾 #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #challenge #heart #inspiring #january #slidemountain #mountain #courage
Sometimes life gets busy and we get caught up in it but this is what my journey is all about. Remembering that staying active and enjoying the unseen is what I should be doing to keep a perfect life balance. Last week (3) I hiked 15.7 miles between Boney Peak and Rocky Peak 🥾 #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #challenge #heart #inspiring #december #rockypeak #mountain #courage
This lady’s courage continues to grow as more decisions are needed to make. Solo longest hike yet of 10.1 mile hike at a great old stomping ground hiking trail. One of my favorite hikes in the Ventura county area 👣❤️ #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #challenge #heart #inspiring #december #boneymountain #mountain #courage
Courage:the ability to control your fears in a dangerous or difficult situation. This is my third time going up the baldy bowl however it’s been almost 3 years since the last two times. I was a bit nervous going into it but if there is one thing I always have to remind myself is that “I am stronger than the mountain and I am in control”. Usually fear gets the best of me and when I do shake up, lose control and panic. Well I couldn’t really let that happen today. Maybe it’s the equipment, maybe it was the powerful energy around me, maybe it’s called growing. Either way thanks to everyone who supported and for everyone who always continues to push me to become a stronger person not just in outdoors but in life. Today was definitely a success (minus the tedious 3.5 miles at the end 🤦🏻‍♀️) Mountains have a mind of their own and snow conditions are never the same, so I guess some fear will always be there but knowing how to control it is always key 👌🏼 #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #challenge #heart #inspiring #december #mtbaldy #mountain #courage
You won’t be able to see it but that feeling when you’re running and in the view in front is a snow capped mountain and LA to right all in one frame. Felt like today all odds were against me. I already have a hard time breathing going up hill and when you throw wind in the mixture I normally just want to give up,however this time I pushed harder and while I could barely even jog it all the way up as I felt my calves were on 🔥 I kept pushing. Beat my trail jog by 1 min 30 sec. It’s a win. Miles week 1: 18.6/750 Let the journey continue #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #challenge #friendship #heart #inspiring #december
“The Three Cs’ in life:choice, chance and change. You must make the choice to take the chance if you want anything in life to change.” -unknown It’s hard to describe the feeling inside. One moment you are good and one moment you are in a world of uncertainties not knowing where it will go. However there is one thing for sure: that you are stronger coming out than how you went in. That is what keeps me going. I made a choice and took a chance as I needed for something to change. I don’t know where it will take me but I sure continue to be hopeful that when those stars finally align I will be where I need to be. #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #home #guatemala #friendship #heart #inspiring #december
Dec 1 I started my 750 mile goal. I got a good 7 mile practice run in on wed and 12.9 miles in yesterday of a good hike. Found this little gem as we hiked down ❤️ perfect start to a great month! #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #fall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #echomountain #califonia #friendship #heart #xmastree #inspiring #december
Sometimes life decisions aren’t easy to make, but you do them because in the long run they will be better for you no matter how hard it is to see that now or how much you try to justify…a step of the way, a day at a time #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #nightfall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #backpacking #califonia #friendship #heart #lake #inspiring #decisions
Sometimes life feels we are walking on eggshells and things around us keep changing especially when we least expect them to which completely re-arranges our future plans. We have mental breakdowns and eventually try to refocus to gain control. That’s ok. Just don’t let it take too long because that strong bridge you once built won’t hold itself forever. #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #nightfall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #backpacking #califonia #friendship #heart #lake #inspiring #bridge

Every journey has it ups and downs. You will fail and then succeed but only if you truly believe that you can and the passion is in the work that you put. It will never be easy. Just as traveling to the some of the most remotely beautiful places takes so much work whether it’s the distance and how you get there or carrying that 42lb backpack. But man oh man, every step becomes worth it right when you get arrive . #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #nightfall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #backpacking #califonia #friendship #heart #community #lake #inspiring
Campfires are what bring people closer together. Creates a bigger bond and a place to share stories. I appreciated my camping neighbors for letting us crash their fire as we connected in the process. Makes an experience that much more memorable. #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #nightfall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #backpacking #califonia #friendship #heart #community #campfire
There’s a feeling of accomplishment and gratitude knowing I can help . Today is Red Cross and helping those that are still dealing with evacuations. If I can make a diff in someone’s life one person one day at a time. I’ve accomplished my daily goals. ❤️ #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #nightfall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #backpacking #califonia #friendship #heart #community #redcross
Found this along my trail but wasn’t sure what it meant. A place for praying maybe? A remembrance? Either way it reminds me how peaceful it is to collect your thoughts in a land far away from the city and something about it was inspirational. My second dream destination is Nepal and the colored flags also reminded me to keep working on that dream ❤️ #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #nightfall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #backpacking #califonia #friendship #flag
Have to take a moment to recognize what is going around me. A mass shooting happened a few cities over on 11/7, fires began on 11/8 in north and south California. Between both of these situations It’s caused a lot of pain for many losing loved ones and seeing their houses go down. My prayers are in both as it is hard to watch what many are going through. #Staystrong communities. And I can’t forget about those that served our country 🇺🇸🇺🇸 happy veteran’s day! 🇺🇸🇺🇸 #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #nightfall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #backpacking #longlake #califonia #friendship
#theworldundermyfeet Track to Mount Ossa, Tasmania Still climbing higher. Step by step. Still speechless. And to admit, quite breathless. Wanna read more of my stories of bigger and smaller adventures in the life of a traveler? www.theworldundermyfeetblog.wordpress.com
#theworldundermyfeet Track to Mount Ossa, Tasmania Walking continuously upwards I feel the cold from the night on my cheeks. On the tip of my nose. On my ears. The first sunlight of the day. The forest is steaming. Wanna read more of my stories of bigger and smaller adventures in the life of a traveler? www.theworldundermyfeetblog.wordpress.com
As i sit here on this bench listening to my music reflecting on how i struggled to even jog up the steep two miles, it reminds of how often i keep saying I’m going to do something and then when the day comes i don’t. Everyones motivated in a different way and i have to have structured plan with goals and reflect on them weekly so next year i proposed myself something: “1,000 miles of hiking and trail running combined” without losing sight of what i still love to do but the training begins now! #2019 #goals #adventure #ahikerslife #challenges #dontstop #explore #everytrailconnects #gogetlost #gooutside #hiking #inspiredbynature #camp #lifestyle #nightfall #nature #outdoors #ospreypacks #rei1440project #rei #seekthetrails #greettheoutdoors #california #inspiring #optoutside #mytrailiscalling #neverstopexploring #newyear

|Trail Review - Bear Mountain| . . . Bear Mountain in Salisbury proudly holds the title of highest peak in Connecticut. At an elevation of 2,323 ft. it is a highlight of the small portion of the Appalachian Trail that skirts through the edge of the state. . . . There are a couple different ways to start your hike up to Bear Mountain - we chose to connect to the Appalachian Trail via route 41 and then hike the Under Mountain Trail to where it connects with the AT at the Rigga junction. . . . The terrain is steep but the the trail is well marked and easy to follow. At a moderate pace it took approximately 2 hours to reach the top. Once you reach a large rock pile (shown in photos) you have arrived at the peak. . . . Reminder - always watch the weather and be prepared for rain if it is forecasted. A heavy thunderstorm rolled in while we were at the top and we had to race to get below the trees to avoid the lightning. . . . All in all, it was a great hike. The views were wonderful and being in a rainstorm with thunder cracking right above you is quite an experience. Happy hiking! . . . #hikenewengland #hike #hikect #hikeconnecticut #hikeintherain #rain #thunderstorm #ahikerslife #outdoors #outdoorlife #nature #wildlife #bearmountain #connecticut #adventure #adventuring #adventureliving

• Random Fact About Myself - • • • • Few things make me as happy as wondering through the woods with my wife. “Nature Nikki” I like to call her. We make a great team, I am the navigator, she is the photographer 📸 • • • Her eye for detail astounds me. She can bring out the beauty in an old, dead, tree stump or somehow give life to an overgrown path. • • • The trails each tell their own story, but her specialty is bringing out the details that are so often overlooked. • • • Watching her work and improve her craft is fascinating. Her passion inspires me. • • • #hikenewengland #hikect #hike #wander #outdoorlife #ahikerslife #nature #naturelovers #photography #passion
Penwood State Park in Avon/Bloomfield CT. . Penwood is a fairly easy hike that is simple to follow. The map at the head of the trail is detailed and easy to understand! Although penwood doesn’t offer all the viewpoints of its close neighbor Talcott Mountain, it still makes for a good hike! . . . #hikenewengland #hikect #hike #adventureliving #ahikerslife #outdoorlife #nature #adventure

One of my favorite hikes in CT is Ragged Mountain in Berlin. The trail is moderately difficult with a few steep inclines but overall it isn’t too much for your average hiker to handle. ———————— The trail offers multiple viewpoints on both sides of the mountain and lots of color. The unique rock formations make for some cool pictures. #hikenewengland #hikeconnecticut #hikect #hike #outdoorlife #outdoors #nature #ahikerslife #photography #outdoorphotography #adventure #adventuring #explore
Getting up at 345am just to catch the sunrise on your day off isn’t easy. However, getting a front row seat, enjoying a cup of coffee and conversation with your neighbor as you wait for the light to shine on you may just make it worth it.
