This was the section of trail this morning that wasn't covered in drippy mossy rocks and 50 year old, super thick roots trying to tackle us to our faces. .. So much fun though, I'd do it again right now!! .. ๐Ÿ“ท thanks for shooting me @ciaragroesbeck .. . . .. #getoutmor #runvt #runvermont #trailrunning #runforfun #irun #veganrunner #everytrailconnects #runeveryday #runnersofthewild #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore

From one summit to the next, home made peanut butter cups in our happy little bellies, from Mt Madison to Lake of the Clouds and beyond!! . It's pretty much what every traverse needs. โ›ฐ .. . . .. #getoutmor #whatveganseat #hikingfood #plantbased #presidentialtraverse #whitemountains #nh48 #lifeofadventure #choosemountains #plantpowered #runnh #whyihike

Whoa.. check out this rad selfie that Ciara got with the taller-than-us rock cairn on the summit of Mount Eisenhower!! . Waaait a second.. who's that guy who snuck in there?? ..Oh yeah.. that's just me. .. . . .. #getoutmor #hikenh #mounteisenhower #whitemountains #choosemountains #vegansinthewild #wmnfhikers #runnh #runmountains #trailrunning

Eating all of the plants and breathing in so much fresh forest air. . What this photo doesn't show are all of the Disney forest critters skittering around with me, up and over roots and rocks, dipping and dodging through the woods. .. . . .. #trailrunning #runnersofthewild #everytrailconnects #runnh #veganrunner #irun #nhrunner #runfree

I found Mt Madison and Mt Quincy Adams, but can you find Ciara, Boone or Crockett? .. From the second most high - Mount Adams .. . . .. #hikenh #mountadams #presidentialtraverse #nh48 #nhrunner #trailrunning #everytrailconnects #hikethewhites #whitemountains #runnersofthewild #midweekescapechallenge

"Buddy, you're going the wrong way down the slopes!!" Read the face of every concerned parent and camp counselor taking their kids down the mountain by way of gondola.. โ›ฐ .. . . .. #runnh #mountsunapee #runnersofthewild #everytrailconnects #irun #nhrunner #veganrunner #getoutsidenh #newhampshireoutdoors #trailrunning

And here's Crockett at mile 12.3, burning off some extra puppy energy as we fuel up and get ready for the next push over four summits. .. . . .. #getoutmor #hikethewhites #presidentialtraverse #everytrailconnects #mountmonroe #lakeoftheclouds #hikenh

..if I hide behind this rock cairn right over here, maybe the work week won't find me.." . That is how my thought process works. .. . . .. ๐Ÿ“ท @ciaragroesbeck of course!! .. #getoutmor #hikethewhites #hikenh #whitemountains #mountainsdontjudge #vegansinthewild #everytrailconnects #midweekescape

I've always wanted to give a cloud a high five, today I was finally able to from the summit of Mt Adams.. with the Wildcats watching from down below .. . . .. #getoutmor #mountadams #hikenh #whitemountains #presidentialtraverse

I'd like to say this is my kitchen, but it is not. . On the trek from Mt Madison to Adams, I walked into an eerily empty AMC Madison Spring Hut just after breakfast, not a person in sight, just the crackling of radio conversation between two Rangers somewhere else far off in the forest. .. I filled up on free water. .. . . .. #getoutmor #whitemountains #wmnfhikers #amcnh #amcnewhampshire #madisonspringhut #hikethewhites #hikenh #nh48 #goeast #greettheoutdoors #beanoutsider

My Asolo's officially hit 1,500 miles. ๐ŸŽ‰ . After almost losing a toe above 5000' in the Adirondacks from a waterproof boot that turned out to be not-so-waterproof, I bought my first pair of Asolo boots. I bought these primarily because of their reputation for solid boot construction; along with it came all of the comfort. . I love looking back and reminiscing on all the places these boots have taken me in the past 3 years, and where they will take me in the future.. .. . . .. #getoutmor #mountainsdontjudge #asoloboots #asolo #hikingboots #hikinggear #hikethewhites #whitemountains #hikenh

Escaped the train cars of tourists on Mount Washington for some perfect weather and mild breeze in our late presi-traverse, a day filled with cherries, oranges, Ciara's home made 1lb peanut butter cups and incredible views. .. . . .. #nh4000footers #nh48 #presidentialtraverse #getoutmor #mountainsdontjudge #whitemountains #everytrailconnects #midweekescapechallenge

"You always have to think, shit, what if we get stuck up there?? We need ALL that food." ..
