**RANT ALERT** Weekend warriors piss me off! Trash everywhere and doing their business less than 20 feet from a water source (swipe to see). Seriously?? Use a bucket and cat sand method if you camp next to a creek, assholes! 😡 Pretty soon this free area will either be closed or there will be fees involved. #protectourpubliclands #trashed #cleanupafteryourself #nationalforest #camping #respecttheland #idiotsareeverywhere #pooshaming

Yeah, there is still a lot of summer left but it’s still ok to reflect on last winter and show some love for the people who helped keep the dream alive for another season 👊. Thanks to @dpsskis @revo @terraingym @grit.strength.fit and @allspeedcycleryandsnow for making epics like this whiteout powder day on Mt. Baker possible! Additional appreciation to @mattmurphylifestylesales @conorsinthezone @michaelengert and @supergoop for all the help behind the scenes. Still gonna enjoy the surf and trails for a while....but it will be nice to be on skis again 🤘 #findawildlife #ski #outsideisfree #outsideforall #protectourpubliclands #myDPS #dpsambassador #dpsdreamtime #PNW

Jewelry has been around for over 115,000 years. The earliest known ones were actually created by Neanderthal living in Europe. They were small perforated beads made from sea shells. . What’s your style when it comes to making a statement about who you are? . I’m drawn to pieces that are quietly eye-catching. I love unusual shapes and colors. Most of all, I love adding objects to my life that minimally effect the environmental. . I’ve added a few new pieces to my Etsy store. Go check it out at www.etsy.com/shop/ViridianRange!

Science on the mountainside. Because my scientific work is primarily medicine focused, not a lot of people know that I also have a great interest in geology. This is on Bell Rock where we found stunning slabs of bright white calcium deposits that were veins between the sand stone. The deposits have since been exposed via erosion and although it has been mostly destroyed (these deposits can be very delicate), there was still a surprisingly good chunk left. Probably because it's relatively out of reach from regular human contact and because it's hidden in a crevice that guards it from a lot of the elements. Amazing!! . . . . . . . . #geology #womeninstem #sciencerules #nature #protectourpubliclands #science #womenwhoscience #coconino #nationalforest #Arizona #sedona #outdoors #hike #travel #travelphotography #travelersnotebook #traveler #instatravel #photographers #photography #pictureoftheday #igramers #instagood #inspire #geology #sciencerules #nature #protectourpubliclands #conservation

Today I’ve been thinking a lot about our impact on this earth, and how we can make simple swaps to make our impact more of a positive one. Little things like using reusable bags grocery and produce bags at the store (or at least asking/offering paper bags - looking at you @publix); asking your waitress/waiter for no straw or asking your customers if they NEED a straw; using reusable cups/bottles for drinks on the go; supporting businesses who sell products made from recycled materials; and refusing single use plastics (canned and glass bottled sodas are better anyways) can really add up to make a difference. By adopting these changes, you can make an impact while you’re just living life, and hopefully, inspire others through your actions! ————————————————————— Growing up, my parents were inspirations through their actions. They were hard working, loving, dedicated, supportive, encouraging, and patient. They raised me to chase my dreams, work hard, and lead by example, and lately I’ve been trying to do my best to do just that. I’m hoping that my attempts to be more transparent have encouraged you to give something new a try, learn more about current issues dear to your heart, and to lead by example. If I can inspire just one other person to #protectwildlife, #litterpick, #protectourpubliclands, #skipthestraw, #protectouroceans, #optoutside, #volunteer with their local charities or for their local #beachcleanup, and/or speak out about the causes that are important to them, I will be incredibly happy. We are #strongertogether and every day is a new chance to do something great. ————————————————————— “You are what you do, not what you say you’re going to do.” – a quote I found on a chore list my mom made for my litter sisters 💕 ————————————————————— Take the first step, make a change, and see what happens. And of course, bring the #pup along for the ride, because what is life without #mansbestfriend? 👣🐾 Shoutout to some of my current #instagraminspirations : @rachel.pohl @charles_post @sunkissedjournals @zerowastememoirs @makelitterpickingcool @chicago_picker @plasticfreejuly @hanliprinsloo @caliwolf @leavenotracecenter @briannamadia @sarahherron

Today's #eskapepod and important message is from @grady_j - "Gifford Pinchot became the first chief of the US Forest Service during the office of Teddy Roosevelt in the early 20th century. His vision of conservation ethics for our land’s natural resources focused on utilization of the land to yield the greatest good for the the greatest number of people for the longest time. In its origins this view focused on resource extraction without exhausting the supply for future stakeholders. Over the years, this idea of conservation ethics has evolved into one of preservation. The negative impacts to the land caused by extraction outweigh the the benefits. We have come to see the value in keeping a place wild. It provides a comfort deep inside our bones; a living artifact of our ancestors. This Greatest Good bestows a rooted connection to our past and we must protect it so future generations can know it too.

This. This was the moment I lost it and started crying. Friday night after an 8 hour hike and climb to base camp, with a 45 pound pack, up at 9,450 feet of elevation, everyone at camp had gone to bed and I was alone to watch the sunset for a few minutes. I could see Seattle to the left, and Mt Baker way off in the distance (which I haven't gotten to see much since standing on her summit a few weeks ago), and the reality of the situation set in. I was here, this was happening, that hopefully the mountain would let us summit the next night in spite of all the recent warm weather. I was still aware that everything could turn out right but I might get altitude sickness up top and have to turn around, but I'd made it this far and that in itself left me full of tears and speechless. I knew I was about to have an internal battle while climbing the mountain, but with a little luck and the skill of my team, I was about to be tested in a way I'd never known before in just 24 hours. There isn't really a way to put those feelings into words, only tears will do. And cry I did. . . . #optoutside #protectourpubliclands #forceofnature #upperleftliving #uppetleftusa #pnwwonderland #pnwcollective #wanderwashington #herpnwlife #ourpnw #upperleftisbest #pnwcollective #northwestisbest #exploremore #choosemountains #lifeoutdoors #neverstopexploring #wildernessculture #livelifeoutside #liveauthentic #cascadiaexplored #ourpnw #hikingadventures #theoutbound #rei1440project #soberlife #gameoftones #mtrainier #tahoma

Most of us are frequent users of the trails in Summit County. Whether you hike, run, or bike, there is a huge network of trails for you to use! Our partners, Friends of the Dillon Ranger District, team up with our local rangers to repair and rebuild these trails. They host regular volunteer projects for trail maintenance, which you can find on their Facebook and website. These projects are a great way to increase the lifespan of your favorite trails, and give back to the outdoor community! ALSO if you're a fan of Chipotle, stop by the Silverthorne location tomorrow and be sure to mention FDRD - they'll receive 50% of your order! . . . #mylocalwilderness #wildernesssports #bikeshop #shoplocal #locabikeshop #dillonco #exploresummit #bestofsummit #pedalfaster #fdrd #protectourpubliclands #leavenotrace #keepitwild

Monday by Mateo: Back in the day when there was a fire lookout in the Needles, high above the Kern River Drainage, California, a kind woman named Margie, who loved climbers, lived and worked there. From her perch, she could see into the heart of the Sierras, from Mount Whitney to Farewell Gap to Olancha Peak, and also directly into the beetling spires of the Needles formations themselves. She watched for fires of course, and relayed messages about fire locations to a dispatcher as needed. But Margie also kept a close eye on the rock jocks in the spires down below. If you stopped by to chat after climbing, she would often have some fresh, piping-hot cookies for you. Unfortunately, the lookout burned down in 2011, though funds have since been gathered to rebuild it.

"This neature nugget is about overcoming obstacles." Kessler Peak was no joke. But the morning light was nice and pizza for breakfast tasted extra good after 2800 feet of gain in 2.7 miles!!

Camping in the clouds at the conjuction of Art Loeb and Ivester Gap Trails. Normally wouldn’t have set camp so close to the trail but rain was chasing us hard. Learned a low pass acts as a funnel for wind and clouds. Nearly 12hrs of crap weather and the bear sighting far too close made for a sleepless night. #publicland #protectourpubliclands #thislandisyourland #shiningrockwilderness #artloebtrail #tennentmountain #pisgahnationalforest #appalachianmountains #camplife

Driving through the area right after this that has been so badly burned by the county fire, was really sad, and reminded me of the Columbia river gorge fire last year at this time. Just a reminder to be cautious of your surroundings, take care of your home!! We live in such an incredibly beautiful state, please help me protect it.

I didn't know I could dream that big. This morning I got to stand 14 411 feet above sea level on the summit of Washington State's tallest mountain, Mount Rainier. It's going to take me a while to process this, and considering I've been up for the last 24 hours, I don't have words just yet. Only that I didn't even know my dreams could be that big. . . . #optoutside #protectourpubliclands #forceofnature #upperleftliving #uppetleftusa #pnwwonderland #pnwcollective #wanderwashington #herpnwlife #ourpnw #upperleftisbest #pnwcollective #northwestisbest #exploremore #choosemountains #lifeoutdoors #neverstopexploring #wildernessculture #livelifeoutside #liveauthentic #cascadiaexplored #ourpnw #hikingadventures #theoutbound #rei1440project #soberlife #gameoftones #mtrainier #tahoma

Shamus wanted a mani-pedi morning so we plodded barefoot around a menagerie of glacial erratics clustered sporadically in a pine padded forest and solved a few puzzles with the scent of balsam fir on the breeze. Adirondack rock climbers pad and pull on native anorthisite, a plutonic rock composed largely of calcic plagioclase. Its like granite but awesomer. . . #mckenziepondboulders #adk #keepitwild #becauseitfeelsgood #timetoplay #restday #protectourpubliclands #toejamonyourhandholds

Exploring Valley of Fire with my best friend. This beautiful state park derives its name from red sandstone formations, the Aztec Sandstone, which formed from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago. Nevada’s oldest state park has now become one of my favorites. We cannot wait to return for more adventures.

“Mount Katahdin at the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail is not a hike, but a climb. It's technical, it's dangerous and it's only for those who are serious about the trail. To get to the top isn't just about the four thousand feet of elevation delivered in the form of boulders over the five miles to the peak, it's about the journey there. For the Northbounders, it's the final step of their long journey, a last hurrah before they return to a more traditional life. For us Southbounders, it's getting our butts handed to us before we even make it to mile Zero, it's the first of many hard days on our feet, joints, and muscles. It's one great view before descending into the green tunnel. It's the first day of our new lives.” -Alexis / @transploration ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pronouns: she/her ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Katahdin, Maine #katahdin #trektheat #appalachiantrail2018 #appalachiantrail [Abenaki, Wabanaki, Penobscot + ancestral lands.] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag #unlikelyhikers or #unlikelyhiker to be featured ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [image description: person stands victoriously, arms outstretched, behind Katahdin summit.

Salt Creek Falls is a very large cascading Alabama waterfall. Few know if it because several people have died climbing it. The forest service doesn’t want it promoted. It is phenomenally gorgeous though and yes, dangerous.
