Really enjoyed this eastern Wa hike
Really enjoyed this eastern Wa hike
For those who know me - they know I am a planner. I love planning all the little details of my adventures. Researching information and learning and assessing and planning and plotting. It increases anticipation and every adventure feels like Christmas morning when I was a kid. 
Within all of that planning and plotting, I leave room for spontaneous changes and enhancements of the adventure experience. This little side trip was not part of the plan, although the sounds of the birds and the wind across the water made for a nice place to stop and stretch the legs after hours of traveling. 
How about you? Are you a planner, completely spontaneous or somewhere in the happy middle? .

Elk prints in the sand dunes. It was fun to see the elk running across the dunes early Saturday morning. The elk is one of my spirit animals. .

Advice from an Elk
Don’t get stuck in a rut
Cherish wide open spaces 
Appreciate life’s high points 
Be at home in the woods 
Make your voice heard 
Know when to make tracks 
Be magnificent! .

Out on a beautiful hike this weekend in Eastern Washington
Out on a beautiful hike this weekend in Eastern Washington
Just got home from 8 fantastic days of trail work on Lake Chelan's Lakeshore Trail in Wenatchee National Forest with 8 amazing WTA volunteers. .

Cedar Butte today. Very very wet out. Came back soaked, but still fun!

So-- Mt. St. Helens didn't go today... There are reasons why climbing permits are still available for the month of April. Approximately 4 of those reasons had fallen and accumulated by the time we broke the tree line. .

Mission accomplished. Spent the day doing trail work with @washingtontrails and @jenzo_1. The skunk cabbage was blooming, a sign that spring is arriving 🌱🌻💛🌄

Trying to remember that after we weather the storm 🌧 we’ll have brighter days ahead ☀️ .

That concept is true in life too. No matter what sh*tstorm you’re currently dealing with, keep pushing through. One way or another, you’ll come out the other side, stronger and brighter than before.

I made the first cut yesterday, dropping the crown of the downed tree, releasing the bottom and side binds. Here Swig makes the second.

6 miles of muddy, tough trail time. I didn’t want to do this run and had to get kicked out the door by my husband to do it. My phone died and I ended up singing the Alphabet Game to myself the last 2.5 Miles (“A my name is Alice and I’m married to Alan; we live in Alaska and we sell apples...” all through the alphabet until I got to U, and I gave up because I couldn’t think of a guy’s name that starts with U 🙄 I never regret a run once it’s done though 😝💛 ———————————————————-

Yesterday I got to venture out to a newer Thurston County Park for the first time. 
Deschutes Falls Park is a 155 acre park with a 27 foot waterfall through a gorge and a series of smaller falls along the river. The river and falls seem to be flowing pretty heavy right now. 
The rocks right now along the river are gorgeous with vibrant spring green moss. The trail has plenty of cedar and Douglas fir trees as well as an oak tree by the river. The sounds of happy birds were abundant. 
The trail itself is currently muddy and caution should be taken when walking near the cliffs. The mud is extremely slick. Some fencing has been put up at a couple of viewpoints for safety. 
On my way back to Olympia I finally got to eat at @vansburger2000 for the first time and I now know what the hype is about - now on my top 3 list of burgers.

~Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve • Olympia, Wa~
#tbt to an adventure last week with my sister to the Mima Mounds. Considered a National Natural Landmark and one of Washington State's 17 natural landmarks, Mima Mounds is surrounded by mystery as many have tried to figure out how these mounds were formed. Theories range from burial sites to seismic activity. Some even believe pocket gophers had something to do with it! It really is an interesting place to visit knowing that there is still no answer as to how these mounds were formed. Spread over 637 acres, this natural area preserve has trails and interpretive signs throughout. -》》♡《《-

Chasing waterfalls at Silver Falls on Saturday. You get the most waterfall for your miles here. 10 waterfalls that you can walk around, behind, over and past. .
.
6.7 miles added to my 2018 hiking total so far. Currently at 84 miles. Not adding the miles as quickly this year.... And that’s ok. :) still plenty of time and adventures ahead!

~Burfoot Park • Olympia, Wa~
I haven't been to this park in over 20 years. It used to be one of my favorite childhood parks and a destination for countless field trips. It was so much fun to walk the trails around the park and go down to the beach with my sister and niece. Another wonderful destination checked off the list on my short visit home. 🌲💛🌲

Today I celebrated God’s creation by waking up at 3 a.m., dry heaving my way up to Rattlesnake Ledge in the dark, and getting photobombed by dogs at dawn.

~Mima Falls Trail • Olympia, Wa~
This afternoon my sister and I got out for a run on the Mima Falls Trail in the surreal Capitol Forest. Everytime I visit this place it feels like something from a fairytail; moss-covered trees, ferns galore, little bridges spanning creeks and best of all, a waterfall! If you are ever passing through or visiting Olympia, be sure and make this trail a priority to run or hike . 🌲🍃🌿

Made it to outside of Seattle this afternoon. Took a solo 4 mile hike up a small but extremely crowded mountain. Not only did I have to park in the “overflow” parking lot, but once I reached the summit, there were just SO many people. A family trying out their new drone for the first time sprayed me with dirt and made a bunch of noise, so I climbed down some rocks and found a more quiet spot to sit next to a crying baby, and amongst some trash. 😱
Right now I’m thinking 1. I’m glad to be in Bellingham and that I don’t live in or around Seattle, 2. I have A LOT of adjusting to do, as trails in Washington are not always going to offer me the solitude of Montana, I so miss Montana, and 3. I’m happy that people are out there hiking and exploring, but wishing more people had better trail etiquette. ⛰🏞😬🌲🌿

Day 9 of the #springocontest is to share an experience of #vitamincommunity. I want to give a huge shout out to #washingtontrailsassociation for doing an amazing job of bringing people of the PNW together to work, move, play, and of course keep Washington’s public lands beautiful and accessible. It’s been a couple years since I’ve done one of their volunteer vacations, and I’m ready to make it back out there. We spend 8 days working together, exploring, and sharing our meals and camp life. Check them out! #movementmatters @susan.k.peters

This is the first weekend in about a month that I haven’t gotten outside and done some adventuring. I woke up late, spent 3 hours at a coffee shop practicing some hand lettering and eating brunch, and now I’m watching netflix and drinking tea while being wrapped up in a big fuzzy blanket. Definitely a much needed rest after a few weeks of non-stop action.

This is the first weekend in about a month that I haven’t gotten outside and done some adventuring. I woke up late, spent 3 hours at a coffee shop practicing some hand lettering and eating brunch, and now I’m watching netflix and drinking tea while being wrapped up in a big fuzzy blanket. Definitely a much needed rest after a few weeks of non-stop action. . . . . . . . #northwestcreatives  #vancitybuzz  #northwestisbest  #themountainsarecalling  #exploretocreate  #theoutbound  #liveauthentic  #adventureculture  #pnwonderland  #lifeofadventure  #wildernessculture  #mtshuksan  #unrulydreamers  #discoverwashington  #explorewashington  #cascadiaexplored  #washington  #washingtonparks  #hikewashington  #wildernessmakesyoubetter  #damgoodtrips  #washingtontrailsassociation  #unrulydreamers  #livebravely  #campeveryday  #mountaincollective  #meclangley  #goodtimesoutside  #allaboutadventures  #mecstaffer 
Another spring break in the books with this hardworking adventurous soul

The waterfall I found on the hike was cute. The neutral density filters I had in my bag didn't feel right. I didn't want to try and tone it down and make it look peaceful because the setting didn't feel right.

I'm not a "let's look stop and look at the flowers" kind of a hiker. I'm more of a "let's hurry up and get to the end" kind of a hiker. On the way down I'll stop and look. But on the way up,  watch out cuz I'm barreling through!
