While I’ve lived in the Seattle area for 40 years, I never did as much exploring until I retired and started hiking. Love the mountains but there are some pretty awesome urban hikes too. Thankful to live in Washington 💚 First time at Discovery Park, another spectacular trail.

First weekend in awhile where I was not able to get outside. Between so many chores, homework and my education account getting hacked, it was a weekend spent with my head down. Luckily, the weekend before was filled with pink skies and sun in the forecast for Saturday. .
Things are looking up.

I love birds - I even have one tattooed on me - but if you asked me what kind of bird this was I’d have to say I had no idea. He just hopped on the branch and started checking me out so I snapped a photo. ✌🏻
p.s - if anyone can identify this bird that would be great thanks

It was a nice day in Seattle yesterday (no rain) so it was perfect to explore an urban hiking spot—Discovery Park—the largest park in Seattle Metro.  I loved being down at the beach—surf music is the best lullaby.  #washingtonproud #onlyinwashington

“Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another.” -John Muir. 
Nowhere is this concept more apparent to me than the Mount Baker Wilderness. Every time I visit it’s like I’m wandering through a surreal exhibit of geological history giving me glimpses of a story hundreds of thousands of years in the making. Never gets old.

You can tell how much fun you're going to have on the slopes based on the amount of snow that collects on your Subie. ❄️ 🏂 #ItsGonnsBeAGoodDay

There are so many tangible benefits associated with urban greenspaces, including improved mental and physical health, economic advantages and community health. See our bio link to learn about the perks of a walk in the park.

I only had a half day to explore Mt Rainier NP when I was there in October, I need to get back when I have more time.  Until I saw this picture, I never realized how much I enjoyed hiking with a wedgy.

I can't even begin to describe how unnatural I feel in front of a camera by myself. I have no clue what face to make and feel like I have no control over what my face even does. Luckily, Tiff has the patience to shoot a thousand pictures to get 1 where I don't look like a total idiot. And even in that 1 picture, it's still up in the air. 😅

↟ sᴏ ᴍᴀɴʏ ɴᴀᴍᴇs | Happy Tuesday! Winry has seemingly endless energy this morning, so despite having a crazy day yesterday, she came to work with me anyway! Juniper will probably come tomorrow though. I love watching June at camp. She’s so happy and free. It does confuse people when I call her Lulu though and owners will say “I thought her name was June??” It makes sense if you know the process it took to get that nickname.. Juniper Luniper and Juni Looney, shortened makes Lulu! She responds to it too, which people find funny as well! Does your dog have a nickname that, without explanation, seems to make no sense? 😂

↟ sᴏ ᴍᴀɴʏ ɴᴀᴍᴇs | Happy Tuesday! Winry has seemingly endless energy this morning, so despite having a crazy day yesterday, she came to work with me anyway! Juniper will probably come tomorrow though. I love watching June at camp. She’s so happy and free. It does confuse people when I call her Lulu though and owners will say “I thought her name was June??” It makes sense if you know the process it took to get that nickname.. Juniper Luniper and Juni Looney, shortened makes Lulu! She responds to it too, which people find funny as well! Does your dog have a nickname that, without explanation, seems to make no sense? . .

This weekend I kayaked the Sammamish River from Downtown Redmond to Downtown Bothell to photograph wildlife on the river. A couple miles downstream I put my camera away because I couldn’t paddle more than a couple feet without seeing abandoned tennis balls & other trash, so I focused on collecting as much as I could fit in my kayak. The full Field Notes post is on my website.

The final tally:

43 Penn Tennis Balls
12 Indistinguishable Tennis Balls
10 @wilsontennis Tennis Balls
5 @chuckitfetchgames Tennis Balls
3 @petco Tennis Balls
2 @chuckitfetchgames Rubber Balls

The forests are the flag's of Nature. They appeal to all and awaken inspiring universal feelings. Enter the forest and the boundaries of nations are forgotten. It may be that sometime an immortal pine will be the flag of a united and peaceful world. ~Enos Mills 🌲💗

Completed my fourth solo hike yesterday with more gear than I needed (20% of my bodyweight for a day hike, oops) and was under a serious time crunch so I completed it faster than any hike previously. It was still nice to get outside!

Thanks for the advice @emilydianeclark, @lisasoutside, @lisa.salsa and @outdoor.angventures!

Walkin' into Tuesday feelin' like a Monday 😴 Who else had the day off yesterday? I had so many things planned this past weekend and while I got half of it done I still feel like I barely got anything done. It sucks when you don't finish your checklist. A girl needs more time in a day lol! But ready to continue this week on strong 💪Happy Tuesday everyone!

P.s. how gorgeous are these deep mossy greens and tall trees? Hiking in the lowlands this winter has its own perks for sure!

We finally made it to a wintery Franklin Falls over the weekend and while it wasn’t fully frozen, it was still oh so magical. 😍❄️ Little did we know, hours later my eyeballs would resemble this waterfall as I watched our external hard drive, which houses ALL of our vlog videos, fail right in front of my eyes. 😭😭😭 This hike was by far the highlight of the weekend and we’re trying to stay positive as we await the news of our hard drive’s recoverability. We had hoped to share two new vlogs this week, but they are on hold for now (but hopefully not forever) and this experience has taught us one big lesson—never, ever store important things in just one place. A big thank you to everyone who has sent positive vibes our way (and backup tips!), y’all made us feel a little better during this crappy situation! 💗

People ask me what's my favorite trail a lot, and I don't have a straightforward answer. I usually ask more questions in order to decide on a favorite as I take into account the weather, trail conditions, viewpoints, elevation... really it's more about how an experience made me feel and not just the end views that leave a lasting impression.

This trip for example, we had amazing weather, wide open spaces to roam, and lots of entertaining moments to remember. So I left excited to return again, but this same trail in bad weather probably wouldn't result in the same response.

Thank you Martin Luther King Jr. for all the sacrifices you made for the fight for civil rights. We still have such a long way to go and now more than ever it is important to stick together and push forward. Some of my favorite quotes:

1.) "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy".
2.) "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends".
3.) "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter".
4.) "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere".

Finally did the popular Heather Lake trail this morning. The lake wasn't as snowy as it probably was a few weeks ago, mostly icy, but it was still beautiful. I'm really loving throwing in some of these popular hikes during this winter season because the crowds are way smaller than summer time and since we are still earlybirds no matter the time of year we always get to enjoy some solitude! I've gotten hikes done this fall and winter that I typically avoid due to popularity & big crowds and it's been awesome! Also, normally I try not to tag specific locations to not overcrowd places (and I'm a firm believer that if you do the research you can find it too) but trails like this that are already well-known, may as well tag the place so people can see trail conditions. Anyways, hike 4 of 52 is complete! I'll be sharing more pics throughout the week. Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!

Finally did the popular Heather Lake trail this morning. The lake wasn't as snowy as it probably was a few weeks ago, mostly icy, but it was still beautiful. I'm really loving throwing in some of these popular hikes during this winter season because the crowds are way smaller than summer time and since we are still earlybirds no matter the time of year we always get to enjoy some solitude! I've gotten hikes done this fall and winter that I typically avoid due to popularity & big crowds and it's been awesome! Also, normally I try not to tag specific locations to not overcrowd places (and I'm a firm believer that if you do the research you can find it too) but trails like this that are already well-known, may as well tag the place so people can see trail conditions. Anyways, hike 4 of 52 is complete! I'll be sharing more pics throughout the week. Hope everyone is having a great Saturday! . . . . . . . . . . . #heatherlake #winter #winterwonderland #snow #washington #pnw #upperleftusa #pnwonderland #pnwlife #hike #hiking #beautiful #outdoors #nature #getoutside #optoutside #outdoorwomen #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #explore #adventure #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #pnwcollective #washingtontrails #northwestisbest #visualsoflife #sheexplores #letsgosomewhere - 3 days ago

Throwback to early morning hot summer hikes taking in amazing views. Oh how I can't wait for summer to return! First and foremost because I'm getting married and going to have the most epic honeymoon lol! But I also have so many plans in the works after those big events & can't wait to go on more exciting adventures around home. I'm also excited for the 3-day weekend coming up! It'll be filled with hiking, important errands, relaxing, & working on my new blog post featuring my favorite summer 2018 hikes. Hoping it'll help you plan some adventures this coming summer if you're in (or headed to) Washington! My favorite fall hikes & winter hikes of 2018 will follow shortly after.

I'll also be working on a new fitness related post soon as I haven't written a fitness update on the blog since I first started it (it's my most viewed post after my Dumaluan Beach on Bohol post) and I'll be figuring out how I'm going to start off my "Introvert's Perspective" little personal corner of the blog. I hope you guys enjoy all the content coming soon. Really hoping to expand and take my blog to another level this year! Wish me luck!

Hands up in the air for Fri-yayyyy! After having a short week last week from the holidays this one definitely felt like it dragged in my opinion. Ready for a little outdoor time and some important errands this weekend. I'm REALLY excited for next weekend's semi-planned adventure though and hoping the weather will hold out. Also, I've been reading horror stories about the conditions of some of our parks & trails from the government shutdown. Fortunately I haven't seen anything terrible yet on the trails I've been on but I am doing a popular hike this weekend and getting worried about how things will be. I'm sure you've heard it from many this week, but it is an important message that you can't hear enough. Keep our outdoors clean, leave no trace. Do your part to help clean up when possible and absolutely get on someone if you witness them trashing our outdoors.

But my biggest concern is all the employees that have been suffering during this shutdown essentially over a damn wall. I'm not going to get too much into politics on here, I have my opinions and I'm sure you can make guesses on them and where I lean to, but I've been following all this closely (as I do with most current news & events in our world and encourage you to as well) and it needs to come to a resolution. The government is not working FOR its people right now at all. What a mess.
