I have a hard time sitting still. Outdoor adventurer, indoor marketer, always optimistic. Portland, Ore.
Left Portland after lunch, hiked ~10 miles up & down 3.7k' and still had plenty of time to row around Trillium lake & watch the rainbows chase tiny flies hatching in the fading light. The summer solstice is nearly here 🌅 #omht
P sure this is the 10th lake I've hiked into in the Mt. Jeff / Three Finger Jack area. 5/5 stars; would revisit.
🙌 Spent the weekend solo backpacking & fishing the pretty lil lakes between Mt Jefferson & Three Finger Jack. Grateful for this catch - and the wilderness that grew him so big - for fueling me over miles of trackless snowy passes. #oregonExplored#gamakatsu
Dropping into the SW Chutes: 4,000' of 40° snow-slope to go. 🎿 #skinittowinit
⛷🗻 👌 Skied the SW Chutes with my buddy Steve ~10 years after our 1st ascent of Mt Adams. It makes me happy to think we'll still be climbing this thing 10 years from now. Hell, make it 50. #skiMo
"Blue is the color of longing for the distances you never arrive in [...] just as the mountains cease to be blue when you arrive among them and the blue instead tints the next beyond." ...Been re-reading Rebecca Solnit's Field Guide to Getting Lost & running around under all this blue every evening I can 👌 #columbiarivergorgeous
Been going on sunset hikes & posting flower photos like it's a part-time job✌️#thimbleberry
Catching trout & camping out with mi hombre John and his mostly well-behaved dogs. Nice to run into @molly.sugar & her crew of cycling ladies on the ride in too. #explOregon
✨ from yesterday's after-work trail run slash walk tbh. #hoodgorge
Left the house ~ 530 this morning to catch the morning light from the rim of the gorge. Ran back down & reached the office by 9. 👌🏃
Yesterday's after-work sunset hike was so great I went again & brought a friend 👌 #hoodgorge
