Always have been a little intimidated to hike Mailbox Peak based on how difficult I’ve heard it can be. Throw in some snow and ice, and I kind of feel a little badass for checking this hike off the bucket list today with @jedi.lafond...
even if I took my microspikes off too early and fell on my butt... twice! 😂 Cheers to more hikes in 2019.
Mamma took me to the backcountry last night to play in the snow! It was so much fun I ran in the snow, licked the snow, ate snow, barked at snow, rolled in the snow, laid in the snow, and ate a bunch of people’s food they left sitting out in the snow. Ha! Suckers! It was so much fun and I’m definitely going to go every day now! If only Mamma would give me the keys to her car...and I knew how to drive...and had money for gas. 😳 #bernesemountaindogs #bernesemountaindog #berner #bernese #bernersennen #dogsofinstagram #pnwhiking
What do you think I’m thinking about? 🤔
It’s okay to look back at the past, just don’t stare.
Missing summer and warmth and sleeping outside.🌞🌻
Oooohh ok, BC you’re a 10 🥇

Salmon River, unfiltered.
Mountains and blue water 💗 did you guys get a three day weekend?!
You can find sunshine anywhere, as long as you look for it. ☀️💛
I love when a friend reads your mind & calls to see if you’ll go on a quick impromptu trip
& it actually works out perfectly
& stops raining when you arrive
& the sun doesn’t fully set until you’re done
& you chat the whole way there
& your friend takes it slow for your out-of-shape, heart pounding, legs shaking status
& you talk about other hikes
& you stand at the top of the waterfall you were just looking at
& you think to yourself,
“Yeah, everything is going to work out.”

This was on our way home. My dad and I drive an hour in the wrong direction until we realized that Google maps was leading us astray....
Headed to an adventure...
Hiking above the clouds ☁️ 😌🙏🏽
You know what happened next.....

! 🏔 ⛷ Feeeeeling like I could probably spend every Monday here.🥰
Brandy hot coco’s, blue moons, mountain turkey wraps, long ski lift chats, and random headstands with my fav ski stud @mandy.m.conn
Finally got to #rowenacrest
a few weeks ago!
Love that this place has been captured in so many angles, views, and seasons. There is something so beautiful about seeing nature thriving even with us coming in and building roads and doing construction.
I’ll remember this day for the rest of my life! It was a great day.

Olympic National Park was basically shut down and so was my immune system. In spite of all that, I had a great time.
t minus two weeks until we head to Costa Rica to chase waterfalls, soak in hot springs, hike volcanos, get lost, and most importantly relax

Sun came out literally minutes AFTER we finished our multi-mile, multi-trail hike.
Was still a fantastic way to spend the afternoon. What I’m not sharing is Paul taking a close look at the mud after traversing a felled tree to a muddy rise mid-lake. I promised him I wouldn’t post the video... so I’ll keep my word. For now.

But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're traveling with me” .

Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
