Weekend forecast: Partly sunny with a 50% chance of thunderstorms ⛈️ 

We spent this past weekend exploring a new area of the Sierra, and I think it’s officially become one of my favorites. 

Despite getting rained out in the evening, the moments of sunshine were well enjoyed with fly fishing and splashing around in nearby waterfalls. There’s few things I love more than summertime in the Sierra, and it’s so much more fun when friends tag along for the ride. 🫶

This is Reid. 

My partner-in-crime, ultimate adventure buddy, biggest cheerleader, and best friend for the past 4, beautiful years. 

Reid’s always down for last-minute adventures, big or small. He’s A true jack-of-all trades in anything he does. He’s an avid outdoorsman, a 2019 PCT finisher, a kick-ass snowboarder, and the humblest human about any accomplishment he’s made. 

He’s a true coffee-snob, someone you can always count on for a surf session, incredibly talented potter, and complete goofball. 

He has the biggest heart, and purest soul, and is also the most incredible friend, son, brother, and partner. 

Today also happens to be his birthday- so give him a shout if you can. 🥳💕

Late summer in Yosemite National Park 🌸 

In late August we took a trip to Vogelsang and the High Sierra Camp in the Tuolumne region of Yosemite. After a late season start to backpacking in the Sierra with the high snow season, we were excited to see the wildflowers out in full display along our 20 mile loop. 

We spent our evening in the backpackers camp watching flashes of lightning light up the peaks around us. Luckily, we didn’t get rained out the next day as we continued on the trail to meet the JMT in Lyell Canyon. 

This section was my favorite. Lupine was in full bloom, and the surrounding peaks were misty and quiet. We ran into a family of Brown Bears 🐻 on the few miles back to the trailhead, and watched as they continued to mosey on their way in search of food before winter. 

(My blog post on this trip is now up! Check out the link in my bio to see and read more on this trail) 🏞️🏕️

Some spring blooms to brighten up your fall day 🌸 

Frames from the California Superbloom this past spring. Probably one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen, and flowers as far as you could see. 

One of my favorite flowers I found were the Desert Candles (top photo of slide two). These stalks were a foot tall with small purple blooms on the top- a very fitting wildflower to its name. 🕯️🌼

Our first day and a half on the Teton Crest Trail, we were certain we must be on the wrong trail. 

A full 15 miles went by and we never saw another soul. Permits for the TCT can be difficult to come by, and from the popularity we assumed the entire trail would dotted with other hikers. But for nearly two days until reaching Alaska Basin, the views were plenty and the solitude was incredible. 

In the nearly 40 miles of trail that stretches the length on the backside of the Teton Range in Wyoming, we were constantly impressed by the alpine landscapes. Travelling northbound, the Grand can be seen in the distance (Photo 2), getting closer and closer each mile. Our favorite view (Photo 1) was at Hurricane Pass, a 10k+ overlook of Cascade Canyon that reminded us greatly of the Cascades in the Pacific Northwest. 

We lucked out with incredible weather, only getting a short hail storm (Photo 6) while climbing Paintbrush Divide on our 3rd day, and saw a Moose and Black Bear while passing Solitude Lake. 

The Tetons have a special place in my heart, and I’m so grateful to have spend 4 days hiking on this trail. 🥾🐻

Our first day and a half on the Teton Crest Trail, we were certain we must be on the wrong trail. 

A full 15 miles went by and we never saw another soul. Permits for the TCT can be difficult to come by, and from the popularity we assumed the entire trail would dotted with other hikers. But for nearly two days until reaching Alaska Basin, the views were plenty and the solitude was incredible. 

In the nearly 40 miles of trail that stretches the length on the backside of the Teton Range in Wyoming, we were constantly impressed by the alpine landscapes. Travelling northbound, the Grand can be seen in the distance (Photo 2), getting closer and closer each mile. Our favorite view (Photo 1) was at Hurricane Pass, a 10k+ overlook of Cascade Canyon that reminded us greatly of the Cascades in the Pacific Northwest. 

We lucked out with incredible weather, only getting a short hail storm (Photo 6) while climbing Paintbrush Divide on our 3rd day, and saw a Moose and Black Bear while passing Solitude Lake. 

The Tetons have a special place in my heart, and I’m so grateful to have spend 4 days hiking on this trail. 🥾🐻

Over the past three weeks we’ve hiked 75 miles 🏕️

We’ve taken two trips in the Sierra, and then bounced right over for our 40 mile trip on the Teton Crest Trail, and wow-what an incredible trip it was. It’s our first weekend off and at home in a while, and it feels like fall has finally hit. Im hopeful that we’ll still squeeze a couple more trips in before the snow starts to fall. 

It was a long time coming of cancelled trips and late snow, but my soul is incredibly happy and my heart is full. ❤️
