Liberty Bell! I’m so excited because the North Cascades Highway just opened - one of the earliest openings in a few years. The highway is closed all winter because of avalanches and then reopens in late spring once highway crews have plowed the snow away. The highway opening means that the peaks we love like the majestic Liberty Bell are at our fingertips (or boot tips 🥾) once again. Adventures await! #northcascades#libertybell
Tomorrow is the beginning of National Parks Week; I love our national parks so much! A couple of years ago I discovered North Cascades National Park which is surprisingly one of the least visited parks, but definitely one of the most beautiful! #nationalparksweek . . . . . #wanderlust
Do you ever go into something thinking, ‘maybe this wasn’t supposed to be’? I did Wednesday. Got the chance to ride the pass the day before it opens to traffic. But I had no forewarning, no chance to make cool plans, or really make any plans at all. I found out Tuesday and rode Wednesday AM. I was nervous. Scared really. Forecast was for rain. Snow was a real possibility also, especially at those elevations around Washington Pass. And even though it is a paved road, it is still wild country and the dangers are real. As I ...
Find a park and find your trail like this beauty at North Cascades National Park. •••••• Thanks to Julianne @thenewstory_ for the great trail. ———- I spent so long wandering in the old growth forest that I wasn't even sure I would make it back before dark. I already get lost enough in the daylight... I know the dark wouldn't have helped! But I sped up my pace and made it back before that happened. #washington#wa ...
Another sign that spring has arrived... Highway 20 has re-opened across the North Cascades! Get up there and experience one of North America's great scenic byways. And yes, the Cascade Loop can be done in a day. #ironbutt . . #skagitcounty
Washington Pass is finally OPEN! And Doug and I finally made it to the 9am opening where we were the 21st car in line. We enjoyed the locally famous cinnamon rolls and listened to live music. Now we are headed to Winthrop for the weekend. #washingtonpass#thepassisopen

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling suuuuuper nostalgic about this time of year as spring hits and the high season soon begins again. I love the place I’m at right now, both geographically and mentally, but I wish I could have both worlds. As I hiked through Stehekin’s backyard over the months, it literally walked me through a really emotional time of my life and changed me for the better. It had a sense of home that I can’t say I’ve found quite yet here in Astoria. I’ll always hold a piece of this place in my ...
It’s been a crazy winter here in Washington. I’ve read so many “I’m so over this snow” and “I’m ready for spring” posts in the last few months, but honestly... this winter rocked. I finally made the switch back to skiing after decades as a snowboarder, bought a backcountry setup, furthered my education with an AIARE course through @alpineinstitute (with these mountain views as the backdrop), and spent a fair amount of time tromping around in the fluffy stuff. ❄️ So as this winter wonderland starts to melt off into spring, I guess I have to head further into the ...
I wish this mornings coffee had a view like this ☕ I spent the winter doing all of my favourite things Skiing, hiking, camping in the middle of no where and most of all living in the moment ❄ Do what makes YOU happy, not what society says should make you happy 💙 PC: @dannis_the_mannis #allaboutadventures#wanderingcloud
