Seattle was just plain showing off today! Mat is training for Rainer in June (you can see it in the background 🗻) and thanks to my in laws I got to join him on a hike today. It was spectacular! If you want to see video I shared over at @manawa_wellness.
Announcing a new rainbow trout T-shirt. Local trout and locally printed. Image feels refined, delicate, and even vintage. This Canvas ring-spun cotton shirt may become the most comfortable you own. Link in the bio.
Cheesman yesterday was insane.
Tons of fish in the net and The beatis hatch was going off all day.... seemed like that's all the wanted too eat.
This brown absolutely worked me through multiple holes and nearly a 1/2 mile of river ....when I got him to the net I was so gitty your think I was a 5 year old girl I'm a unicorn factory.
It's gorgeous fish like this that keep me hiking that canyon time and time again..........
The memories of Monday are taking me back to ever expansive Sierra mountain range. This was a special day on the trail. This day I hit the 1000 mile mark. I was going rewarded with an exchange between me and two black bear cubs that morning. After watching the cubs play in the snow - I shot up a couple 1000 feet to get a real view of what I had come through. Seeing the Sierra’s from this angle really created perspective. I remember these moments as I stopped to appreciate what I had - which was only the essentials with clothes,
food, water, and shelter. Regardless of what little I possessed I felt rich with the opportunities and experiences I came across daily. The trail always provides. 🎒🕶🐻🕶🎒
