My emotions for this mountain run deep. I grew up staring at her beauty, in complete awe of people who climbed her, and telling myself that attempting to climb her would never be anything more than a dream, that I don't have what it takes and for some reason looking at Mt. Rainier as though she was similar to Everest. About a year ago I stopped telling myself I can't and started telling myself one day I will! I have dedicated a lot of time over the last year preparing, learning, and training to get to the top. Maybe it will be this month or maybe it won't be until another year, but I'll get there. . . . #goals #mtrainier #choosemountains #mountainlife #mountaineering #thisworldexists #makeyourdreamscometrue #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #pnwoutdoorwomen #andshesdopetoo #radgirlslife #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #outsideculture #optoutside #forceofnature #rei1440project

Standing on the top of Father Dyer (13,615') when Mr Goatsworth decided to join us. The summit was a little too small for the 5 of us, so we headed towards Crystal while Mr. Goatsworth enjoyed the view. PS. Goats should be skittish around humans - please don't feed wildlife! . . . . #womenwhoexplore #mountainworld #coloradocameraclub #sheadventures #elementsofwild #adventuresoffoxandsquirrel #ladiesgetoutside #heroutdoors #findyouradventure #keepitwild #liveferal #mountainlife #optoutside #livewylder #getoutstayout #coloradical #goatworthy #thehikemovement #livewithoutlimits #lifeelevated #liveclimbrepeat #adventureinspired #goplayoutside #wildernessculture #viewfromthetop #exploremore #forceofnature #adventureliesahead #visualsoflife #mindthemountains

Take the short way they said, it'll be easy they said. Not so much, with 100 degree weather. My favorite part had to be when I threw water all over myself while hiking out. Water will always be life 💦 #vegangirl 🌱 🎥 @frankhikes

Day 54, Mt Whitney - Today was my toughest on trail so far, full of the most amazing scenary and high emotions. Mt Whitney is the highest mountain in the contiguous US at 14,505ft (4421m). It's a side trip from the PCT and hiking it had been one of our big goals of our trip. At 4am we set off on the 15 mile round trip from our base camp to the summit. The beams from our head torches lit up beautiful frozen lakes as we climbed under a thin crescent moon. An hour or two in, as we crossed in our crampons the suncupped snow fields surrounding Guitar Lake, the sun started rising. Being surrounded by such huge, jagged granite mountains amongst the cotton candy sky was humbling and the views were the best we'd seen all trip. After a bit of rock scrambling, we made it to the summit mid-morning 😀. . There was signal at the summit so I booted my phone up to let the fam know we had made it & were safe. . We had a voice message from @pctsam's mum, Jac, who is looking after Roux, our dog, while we're hike. The message was premised with 'This is important - sit down and listen together'. Roux ran off while on a walk. Jac was looking for him in the fields they walk in, but it looks like Roux tried to take himself home for some reason. He didn't make it. Roux was hit by a supermarket delivery van as he ran across a road. The van hit his side, the impact shattering his shoulder and hip. A neighbour who ran out when they heard the impact said Roux got up and tried to limp away before collapsing on the sidewalk. I'm balling my eyes out by this point. All our tissues / toilet paper are rationed, so my jumper sleeves became a giant tissue, soaked with snot and tears. Roux will be okay - we're still waiting to hear if he needs a hip replacement, but he's lucky to be alive. We stayed on the summit discussing vet options with Jac before starting our decent in the early afternoon. We got back to camp around 630pm. The hike back down was slow and somber through lots of soft, soupy snow. I had a migraine from all the crying and went to bed. If anyone wants to see any photos of Roux, there are lots on my IG from pre-PCT. He's a beautiful boy.

After this summer, I can't wait to start teaching yoga to kids on a regular basis. Hopefully, i can host some pick up yoga during my roadtrip. When my kids aren't with me, i figured out my way to happiness. Surrounding myself with more kids. That's what fills my cup. Kids are super easy once you understand them. That requires thinking like a child. Even though the human (small or otherwise) in question may be misguided or even wrong -- Understanding is just another part of love. Practice, Daily.
