There are some places you see and have to just say “wow” outloud.

Colorado’s Pike and San Isabel National Forests & Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands (PSICC) offer a variety of ecosystems rich in history, geology, scenery, wildlife habitat and recreation opportunities. With nine Wilderness areas, numerous Scenic Byways and a full spectrum of outdoor opportunities, it is no wonder that the PSICC ranks third highest in the nation for recreational visits at national forests.

Find your way through the peace and serenity of the forest, and come escape those Denver crowds!

📍So-Hi Campgrounds
Spent a quick weekend camping in New York with the pups and some friends! We did a nice hike on Saturday, ate at a German restaurant where they served beer by the liter, and closed out the day by the fire where not even the rain could bother us

Happy Birthday Jared!! 🎉
These photos aren’t super glamorous or instagram perfect but this is our real life and we are happy to share our real life with you. 🎉
The day started with the kids waking daddy up with morning snuggles. Selah is definitely wearing swimming googles if you are wondering. 🎉
The kids both were so excited to give daddy presents on his birthday. They had wrapped some of their toys a few days ago. It was a joyful moment watching them be so delighted to give the gifts to Jared. 🎉
I made strawberry shortcake and the friend we are moochdocking with even had a candle to put in it. 😊 The 0 candle doesn’t really show an age but it was all they had and we didn’t have candles with us. I was going to go without the candle but the kids really wanted daddy to have a candle. 🎉
It’s been a great day celebrating a great guy!!!!

Haven't really been feeling motivated to post much on the gram recently, yet I have a backlog of nice (I think they are nice anyways) photos that I think would be good to share. My motivation to post always seems to fluctuate, hopefully it returns soon!

Riding into the forest to get away from all the toxicity

Riding into the forest to get away from all the toxicity

Today was exhausting, and we might smell like goats, but it was absolutely beautiful and challenging and everything I hoped it would be. I wanted to quit like a million times, but I’ve quit too many things in my life. I was determined to finish, and I did. Grotto Falls, you were amazing. Thanks for the sore muscles and the beautiful trail. #takeahike #gsmnp #grottofalls #hikertrash #westink #hikeyourownhike #optoutside #getoutside #soreaf

PCT OR Section F
Mile: 2000.9 - 2015.1
Santiam Pass - Rockpile Lake .
KICKOFF
.
Met a ton of thru hikers coming from Campo. Thank you to Karlee for kicking me out of the car as it was down pouring. Very cool, wet day but perfect for hiking. Need to get to day 3 in order to get trail hardened. Will try to make it to WA by Sunday for PCT days. Deer came right into our camp towards evening.

Over 16 miles of trail running and hiking in the Rocky Mountain National Park today. Views were pretty terrible so I guess I’ll try again tomorrow #optoutside #neverstopexploring #mywickedtrail #vitamind #ridinsolo #taur

Can you believe that you can hike just a few easy miles to get right up to this glacier? One of our favorite hikes in Washington. Even our dog, Scout, was able to join us 👣🗻🐾

Today I had lunch plans in New Hope, PA with some fellow coaches, so Matt and I didn't have time to hit our normal trails in the Lehigh Valley. 
With my trip to Oregon in a few weeks, I still wanted to get in a short hike with a loaded bag, so we decided to explore the trails @valleyforgepark.

We started by hiking up Mt. Misery, continued onto the Horseshoe Trail where and we were rewarded with some tree graffiti, a tinman, and someone's birdhouse workshop. We then doubled back and added the Wolfinger Trail to gain some extra distance and elevation. (3.75 miles, 700 ft of elevation and all the sweat thanks to the 99.9999% humidity)

After lunch, we decided to play tourist and take a selfies of ourselves with one foot in PA and one in NJ. Of course none of them came out, but it was fun anyway.

Awesome weekend at @newrivernps. Sport climbs, camping, pizza and craft beers are a hell of way to spend the weekend.

My littlest bear taking his bison buddy, Charlie, on all the adventures and racking up those junior ranger badges! He also travels with an otter, specimen jar, and as many oranges as will fit in his pack.

💥Cole's Corner V9 flash💥
.
Birthday sessions were great! I didn't quite get my project (Practitioner V11) but I managed to flash V7, V8, and V9! Hopefully the project will go before it's time to go home. Also I am not sure if I ever flashed V9 in my 20s but I did in my teens and already have in my 30s. I think its going to be a good decade of my life!
.
Thanks you everyone for the birthday wishes. And thank you to everyone that stayed up until 3AM to cheer me on on my project! @doughnutopia @r.kenna @she.petrichor and Terri!
