Winter has returned. A couple of storms have cycled in giving us days of fresh snow. Yesterday was an experience for many. I stayed home thinking the holiday crowd would be too much. Sounds like little cottonwood canyon got slowed pretty good. Only the earliest birds made it before the road closed. Lucky them. I had a big day on Saturday with a trip to Mt Raymond. Warmer than predicted. Made the snow unstable. But the tree skiing off the back side was excellent.
STATE # 10! We finally made it into double digit state numbers and the farthest east we've been since we left on September 1st. ⠀
While we may have only spent 3 days exploring the wonders of southern New Mexico (2 of them in the rain) we have definite plans to make it back this summer to see the wonders of the north! ⠀

Ran out to Elbow Falls to catch some sunset shots. Fighting with cold weather and sliding around the ice scattered across the area made it an entertaining challenge. When it’s -20, batteries are in constant rotation between the camera and your pants to keep them warm!

Hello. I’m Kayleigh. A 28 year old adventurer with a wild heart. Located in northern New Jersey, I can usually be found dancing barefoot along the shoreline or on sunrise hikes with my favorite human & husband, Jason.
I love watching the snow fall & drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows. I visit the ocean at all times of the year & think it’s worth losing sleep to see that first light. I have an obsession with plants & all things the moon. My favorite animal is a blue ringed octopus & I dream of owning chickens one day. I can’t stand coffee & am not sure how anyone survives without ice cream.
I strive to live a freeing, adventure filled life consumed with laughter. I am an emotionally raw & passionate human who hates small talk & would much rather discuss magic, space, the planet & other cultures. I would love for you to join me on this journey & to learn more about you.

Can you believe that I still have more of the Sierra and all of the desert STILL yet to be posted from my Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike? I am what you call a PROFESSIONAL procrastinator. Here we are still tryna make it up and over Kearsarge Pass (pictured in the back). Aka one of, if not thee coldest days and nights of the entire hike.

Life's too short to take yourself seriously all the time. Do what makes your heart sing... Even if that means having a little booty wiggle on a rock in the drizzle at your favourite place in England! 💃🏞 PC: my gal @molliie_anne
Early morning reflections in Yosemite Valley, taken this past February while making a trip up to shoot the Fire Fall. Despite the lack of snow, I’m pretty stoked to be heading back in a couple weeks to show some first timers around!
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: In exactly one month I leave Seattle to pursue my dream. March 19th my car will be packed as I head off into a new chapter. Photography has become such a big part of my life, and now I can finally try to pursue it as a career. I've become far too comfortable at my job here at home, and it's time to look for bigger and better things. I fully expect to be back home in September, but who knows? Maybe I can support myself with freelance work to last me even longer. I'm definitely nervous, but above all else I'm excited. The past couple years have been a slow escalation to me reaching this point, and now it's finally coming to fruition. Thank you all for the support over the years. The best is yet to come.

🔸”My name is Claude and I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. When I'm not working at REI or teaching an outdoor class; you can find me hiking, camping, paddling, or mountaineering with my adventure dog. I choose mountains for several reasons. Besides being a source of beauty and happiness, the journey of viewing the mountain from afar to slowly making my way uphill to reach its peak and take in nature from a high precipice is without a doubt one of the most refreshing, cathartic experiences!“

Seeing hard work paying off is such a rewarding feeling. Big announcement tomorrow!
When someone says to you, “this trip will change your life” ...you go. This week I take off for a trip that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. Last summer when I got involved with @LifeStraw, they asked me if I would join them in Kenya this year as part of their Follow The Liters program, and their ‘Campaign To Reach 1 Million.’ On Friday, I board a plane and begin this trip that, while we are there @LifeStraw will fulfill their goal of providing safe drinking water to their 1 millionth child. I have been using my personal water filter from LifeStraw before I began working with them, and when I attended my first Outdoor Retailer show, they were the first booth I visited. Why? Because they are a company that is truly impassioned and committed to doing good, a company who believes in and stands by their mantra, “doing good is good business.” Starting Friday you can follow along via my feed and IG stories to watch in real time while we install these large format water filters into 20 new schools throughout Kenya. I can promise you, just like they have promised me… this is going to be a trip and opportunity of a lifetime, and I cannot wait to share it with all of you. To learn more about LifeStraw and to track the progress of the Follow The Liters Program visit the ‘Doing Good’ link in my bio.
