"I had discovered that I am the kind of person who cannot live comfortably, tolerably, on all-flat terrain. For the sake of inner equilibrium there has to be at least one mountain range on at least one of the four quarters of my horizon- and not more than a day's walk away." - Edward Abbey
I'm pretty sad and bummed to hear that this fire lookout (that I have only been able to visit once) is now closed forever to guests because of extreme vandalism. It makes me so made that people would do something so bad to the point where they have to shut it down forever. NO ONE will ever to be able to wake up to this incredible sunrise of Mt. Hood. We will never be able to laugh with friends over a warm meal and wood burning stove all cozied up in the middle of the woods. So many things we will never be able to do again, future generations that aren't even here yet won't get to enjoy what I was able to because of someone's bad choices. #RIPflagpoint #flagpointfirelookout #LNT

For the last couple weeks I have tested out the @fitbit Surge watch in collaboration with @backcountrycom and I give this watch SO many A+s all around the board. My review is up on backcountry.com under the Fitbit Surge. Go check it out, and better yet, go get yourself one!! Let's do some challenges together!! 👊🏼 Seek it. Crave it. Live it.

I've just learned about the loss of a friend today, & while I don't know how or why, I do know it's she was far too young. I'm at a loss for words, but that quote speaks volumes. I'll miss you so SO much Allison, as will everyone you graced your time with. Rest in peace my beautiful beautiful friend ❤️
Rise and grind ☀️
Love the ones you're with 💕
Make a wish & have a great weekend!
It doesn't get much better than hanging in a hammock, soaking in the views after a good, long & sweaty hike ☀️🏔
A little slice of paradise 💦🌱
Rise and shine humans! ☀️
Well, the #Dirty30 birthday was just that. 2 days of camping, about 64 mosquito bites, dirty, sunburned and exhausted but I wouldn't have had it any other way! Cheers to more good years!
Partyin like its 1986..... Because... It's my last few days in my 20s 👋🏼 #ImStillAKid

It's going to be a scorcher this weekend! Near (and in) the water is going to be the place to be! 💦🔥 @ruffwear
