The mountains are on fire - figuratively instead of literally which is a nice change for this time of year. Fresh powder is just a few short weeks away!

⁣ Tenmile Range Traverse • September 1, 2019 • Part 3 ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////⁣⁣///////⁣///⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Our adventure began at F-Lot Saturday evening around 5p. The Peak 9 Road climbed gradually upward and out from the bottom of Beaver Run, and we didn’t miss any chance to cut a switchback (feelin’ fresh). As the sun began to set, we found ourselves in the saddle just below Peaks 9 and 10. Not much snow left in the Fourth of July Bowl, but enough for a small stream to gather a drink from.⁣ ⁣ Sunday morning we packed up and made way for Peak 10. After summiting with some mountain goats (I’d never seen one in Breck, guess I gotta get out more), we scrambled right back down to the saddle, and then up to 9. Peak 8 was great, and so was 7, 6, and 5 (even though we ran out of water on 6, and had to melt some snow for more). We even got to take a few steps on the Colorado Trail.⁣ ⁣ Fuck Peaks 4, 3, 2, and 1. I remember a distinct moment, halfway down Peak 4. The terrain was suddenly difficult. Our pace ground to a near halt. Immediately, we were no longer having “fun.” I wanted to go home. Maybe it was the overnight packs weighing us down, maybe it was the dehydration setting in, and definitely maybe it was the Class 4 downclimbs, with more vertical exposure than absolutely necessary on a late Sunday afternoon, and the temptation to turn around and bail out was palpable.⁣ ⁣ Yet we didn’t stray. Those last three peaks were BRUTAL, but somehow our seemingly eternal view of Peak 1 narrowed to it’s summit. Looking back over my shoulder, Peak 10 seemed impossibly distant, and the thought of a couple more miles and thousands of feet down that hill made me want to vomit.⁣ ⁣ It wasn’t all fun, and it all wasn’t easy, but it was all so worth it.⁣ ⁣ //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////⁣⁣///////⁣///⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ #hiker #backpacking #hiking #colorado #backcountry #hike #photography #camping #wanderlust #nature #earth #thetrek #mountains #trail #goats #breckenridge #summitcounty

Day 18 - We woke early, we knew we had a tough 3k foot elevation gain to accomplish. The sun reached us deep in the valley just as we finished packing up our campsite. We were not the only early risers, dozens of small squirrels were everywhere, clipping pine cones from trees and sending them falling a hundred feet to their comrades below, all the while snickering loudly. Caught a photo of one of the ground crew grabbing a recently fallen pine cone. The early morning sun was enhancing the fall aspen trees colors to the max. The golden stair case was a grueling 3k foot slog. But we made it and were rewarded with lake to jump into, and to reunite with Joe.

Introducing our #AdventureUnpacked series. Each week we'll be letting you take a look inside the adventure packs of our festival team. Swipe right to meet the explorer behind the gear.🎿⛷ . "Being outside & living the life we see in the festival films is an important part of being on the festival team." @2steep . This week we're unpacking Festival Director, Joanna Croston's Backcountry skiing adventures. "Backcountry skiing allows you to access remote places away from the crowds. There is the element of exploring new places and there is often a quiet in these wild spaces in winter that's hard to match. When you’re having a good day in the backcountry ripping through fresh snow, it feels like you’re flying and you forget all about your inbox." . Backcountry skiing tips from Jo: "If you’re not a skier at all, I suggest learning at a ski hill and doing tons of miles there before venturing out into technical backcountry terrain. Make sure you take avalanche training & practice using your avalanche equipment regularly. You won’t have time to figure it out if you’re in a rescue situation." . Join us at the festival in Banff next month! Link in profile.

Throwback Thursday As memorable as this was, I'm hoping this year will no longer require a swim. The kayak is rigged up and just about ready to hunt, so no more ice baths for me! #goosehunting #workforit

Heading out after work tomorrow for my first Algonquin trip of the season. Surprisingly, this will also be the first time that the whole @paddle.in team has all gone out together. We’ll be in the north end of the park, but if you’ll be along Hwy 60 this weekend: be warned. Leafer Madness is already in full effect. Keep a keen eye out for idiots wandering into traffic. #leafermadness #leafers #algonquin #algonquinpark #algonquinprovincialpark #ontarioparks #ontario #yourstodiscover #discoveron #paddleon #paddlein #getoutside #keepitwild #backcountry #backcountrycamping #canoetripping #paddling #portaging #canoeing #camping

In my latest episode, Luke Channer talks to me about his Fire Lookout adventures. He shared some photos with me and gave me some insight into some of his hikes. “Butts Creek Point Lookout, Salmon NF, ID This lookout required a jetboat ride across the Salmon river followed by a 6 mile/5000ft gain hike. Placed on the Natl Register of Historic Places with my pictures.” - 📷 and caption by Luke Channer . . . #firelookout #historic #idaho #hikingadventures #publiclands #backcountry

“Torches Ablaze” September 25, 2019 A belated Happy Autumn Equinox to everyone! I just wanted to take a minute to pay homage to the passing of the torch from Summer to Autumn and then will be getting back to part 2 of my story in progress tomorrow. This image is from my home state of Pennsylvania, Ricketts Glen State Park to be precise. Known for its waterfalls, Ricketts also has a lot of other natural beauty to offer as you can see! I learned early on in my visits to this Park that Fall color comes quickly on the mountain tops in this Northeastern region of the state. I recommend visiting late September/early October for the higher elevations around this neck of the woods if leaf peeping is what you come for. Color does work it’s way down the glens and mountainsides through October but up top the Sugar and Red Maples of Red Rock Mountain blaze like beacons to let us know one of Mother Nature’s grandest shows of the year is upon us! On this particular late September evening from several years ago, the conditions were incredible as the fiery maples glowed like “Torches Ablaze” in the last golden light of sundown! I can still feel the crisp air and the smell of Autumn standing there. I camped in the Park that night and after a prolonged pink sunset glow along with waxing crescent moon, coyotes shrieked and wailed in the distance. Such sights and sounds of the season, and it’s only September still I thought… #appalachianoutdoors , #inspiration , #fujivelvia , #PAforests , #nationalgeographic , #backcountry , #sunset , #natgeoadventure , #neverstopexploring , #outsidemagazine , #filmisnotdead , #PlanetEarth , #OptOutside , #SierraClub , #WildernessSociety , #themountainsarecalling , #natgeoyourshot , #BPMag , #wildernessforever , #goatworthy , #natureconservancy , #OurWild

Gracias 🙏🏽 a todos por sus saludos, recibí mis 31 años, cumpliendo un sueño que venia persiguiendo hace unos años... el majestuoso Volcán Llaima 🌋 que con sus no menores 3.124 metros sobre el nivel del mar, nos mostró su poder, su energía, glaciares y coliflores perfectos! Una ascensión muy linda y un descenso en esquí desde su cumbre, por la cara suroeste, que me saco de mi zona de confort y me regalo el mejor regalo de cumpleaños! Más confianza, más kilómetros, más hielo, más nieve en mi piel y en mis venas! Lo más lindo, no hubiese sido posible si no fuese por mis compañeros @isiassler @raisenoret y mi wuachito ❤️ @0doubt_it0 !! Gracias APUS DEL SUR 🌟 seguimos sumando años, experiencias, montañas y mucho amor 💖 ~ • • • • • • • • #backcountry #mountaineer #volcanes #surdechile #chile #araucaniaandina #volcano #gratitud #freeride #montañismo #mountainlife #outdoorwoman #mujerespoderosas #viajaresvivir

. . . Dusk Light Dance . . Single shot, no photoshop shenanigans! . . Probably one of my most memorable aurora shows ever. . . Hanging at the Arctic Circle sign with @jake_maule and a bunch of other traveling friends i had met along the way. . . . We all ended up randomly meeting up here and spent the entire night in awe of an insane 360 light show that started before it was dark and never let up. It was absolute madness! . . A great time was had by all and stories were told. . . For me, that’s what traveling is all about! . . #soloarcticcircle2019 #canada #yukon #northwestterritories #aurora #wildlife #truckcamper #truckcamperlife #homeiswhereveriwantit #wheeleveryweekend #fourwheelcampers #rmfwc #adsracingshocks #highwayproducts #nitrogears #nittotires #truckcampermagazine #roadtrip #backcountry #offthegrid #wilderness #adventure #explore #aurora #auroraborealis #northernlights #northernlights #travelyukon
