Climbing Mt. Adams

 

Yoga from camp

As I write this, my face feels like it’s melting off, my scalp is burnt and my neck and chest are beginning to itch.

Yes. This is a sunburn from hell.

But definitely worth it. (Well I’m sure I’ll think so in 3-4 days)

This past Saturday myself and himself decided to hike Mt. Adams. And no, it wasn’t just a last minute thing – this is something we had been talking about for a while. Soooo to celebrate my recent 200 RYT graduation (YAY!) we felt my first weekend free would be the time to do it. We checked the weather conditions and with nothing but blue skies, we gave it the green light.

Kicking off in Glacier Park

Aaaaaalrighty. FINALLY I’ve given a minute to catch up on the blog. This has been quite possibly the busiest, craziest summer I’ve ever had. I spent all year talking about how excited I was for an Oregon summer, yet I only spent a handful of weekends here. Anyhow – I’m going to kick off a series of posts with my first trip of the season, Montana. I can take zero credit for planning this trip. Himself did a mighty job co-ordinating it all from getting to Montana to the trails we were going to hike. We decided to drive and it normally takes around 10hrs to get to the west side of Glacier Park. We stopped half way in Spokane, WA though at the Davenport Lusso to break up the journey.

Labor Day Weekend

Seattle

I love these summer weekends. They really are so much fun! Labor Day weekend was no different. Seattle was another random, sort of last minute trip that was planned at the tail end of California. Myself and Korey decided to head to Seattle for a couple days to catch the beginning of Bumbershoot. So I booked my Bolt bus ($25) and took the 3.5 hour journey up north to Washington on Thursday after work. I loved the city immediately, there’s a  lot going on up there as soon as you arrive. I got a  Lyft to the Renaissance hotel  where I dropped off my bags (in the Presidential Suite – Thank you Korey!) and went to meet some old friends from my Billabong days.

It was great catching up with Wes and his wife Carla who I’d met when I lived in New York back in 2011. It had been so long so it was great to catch up! We went to the Sarajevo Lounge for some drinks and food – which was DELICIOUS!! The service was amazing and I would 100% go back for the food! I’m very much looking forward to returning for round 2 with these guys. Korey picked me up after a little while and we took a spin around Capital Hill stopping before heading back to the hotel.
